Best duvet brands

By Aaron West

Put us to the test

Our Test Labs compare features and prices on a range of products. Try Which? to unlock our reviews. You'll instantly be able to compare our test scores, so you can make sure you don't get stuck with a Don't Buy.

A soft, comfortable duvet will help you get a great night's sleep, and our guide shows you don't have to spend a fortune to get the best.

We've rated the best and worst duvet brands to help you find a great-value, cosy duvet.

We surveyed 2,144 Which? members to find out what they think about their duvets, and have produced customer scores for 11 brands, including Dunelm, Ikea, John Lewis, Silentnight and Soak & Sleep. As well as the customer scores, each brand is rated for how comfortable its duvets are, how well they match the description, and whether they offer good value for money. 

In the table below, you can see that there's a difference of 15 percentage points between the best and the worst brands. The best scores five out of five for all categories, while many brands can only manage three stars. As you're not logged in as a Which? member, the brand names are currently locked up.

Choosing the best type of duvet

Hollowfibre polyester duvets are the most popular type among Which? members – more than two in five members own one of these. 

Feather/down duvets are also very popular, owned by more than a third of members. Less popular types include wool, silk and other polyester duvets - only around one in ten members own one of these three types.

There are lots of different duvet fillings to choose from, and each has its own pros and cons, so it can be difficult to know which will be best for you. Read our guide on choosing the best type of duvet to get expert tips to help you decide what to buy.

A good duvet is nothing without a great mattress underneath it and a good pillow at the top. Create the perfect bed by reading our mattress reviews and pillow brand guide.
