When you buy a new mattress it feels great in the store, but after you get it home, a few nights later, you find it is really too firm and uncomfortable. A down bed can really alleviate the discomfort without diminishing any support. For the ultimate in luxury, choose an all down bed with a high lofting white goose down filling stitched in a baffle channel design with at least a 4″ gusset. This will provide a soft cushioning and make your mattress more friendly. For a firmer mattress topper choose a featherbed with
a blend of 50/50 down and feather and a 4″ gusset. The down bed will be softer and puffier, the featherbed will still be cushioning but a little firmer. The down bed or featherbed can be used year round as the down will wick away moisture keeping you comfortable. If you are not ready to buy a new mattress a down bed or featherbed can improve the one you have delivering a better sleep experience. You can get the down bed or featherbed in a 4″ or 6" baffle (the most popular), but larger baffles are available. The higher the depth, the more cushiony and luxurious it will be. We recommend the use of a featherbed cover to prevent unnecessary cleaning. With proper care (cleaning and recovering every 7 – 10 years), you will enjoy a down bed or featherbed for many years.
For a lighter down topper choose the sew thru box stitch (about 2" thick). Of course there is a big difference in the comfort level as the sew thru has 20% of the fill of a baffled down bed.
