When most people are in the market for a new comforter for their bed, they often only make their decision based on how a certain comforter looks. A lot of the time, people don't even check to see what the comforter feels like! They only rely on the look of them. Trust me, we know that comforters look (and feel) like clouds. While it's definitely important to like the way that your bedding will look like in cohesion with the rest of your bedroom, there are other things that you should also be taking into consideration. When you're buying a new comforter, the most important thing to understand is that there are two different ways comforters are constructed. Comforters can either be made with baffle box construction or sewn-through construction.
So, what are the differences between those types of constructions, and which type is better? Personally, we prefer comforters that are made with baffle box construction over ones that are made with sewn-through construction. In this blog, we'll get into why... Without further ado, let's get into the differences and the pros of each.
Firstly, let's discuss the baffle box construction... As we mentioned, we prefer this type of construction over sewn-through construction. When a duvet is made with baffle box construction this means that there have been thin strips of material sewn between the top and the bottom cover. This is done in a checkered pattern in order to keep an even amount of down distributed throughout the comforter. It's the most ideal construction, and while they tend to be a bit more expensive than the alternative, they are also likely to last you a lot longer. This is thanks to the extra strip of fabric that they're made with.
Overall, baffle box construction comforters are an amazing choice. They're durable, last longer, and they're of course, super comfy!

Now it's time to discuss sewn-through construction comforters. Sewn-through construction is not sewn with small strips but rather sewn completely through the fabric (which we're sure you can tell by the name!) This creates a very secure stitch that ensures down will stay exactly where they were intended to be. However, due to the lack of baffles creating an even distribution of down over the entire comforter, cold spots are often created. With cold spots, the comforter has a difficult time regulating temperature due to heat escaping where there is no down. This is why baffle box construction is considered still today to be superior to a sewn-through construction and one of the few reasons why we prefer it!
However, don't get us wrong, sewn-through construction comforters are still a great choice. It just depends on your sleeping preferences.
