Dear Snooze Guru,
I LOVE down pillows and comforters. To me, nothing beats the feeling of resting my head on a fluffy down pillow and snuggling underneath a cozy down comforter. Unfortunately, I recently discovered that I have a sensitivity to down. When my doctor told me that I shouldn’t sleep with down pillows and comforters anymore, I felt like he punched me in the gut. Now I need to find new bedding, and I’m not entirely sure what I should look for. I’ve never slept with down alternative pillows or comforters. As a down enthusiast, can I experience the same comfort from down alternative?

Thank you for writing. As an appreciator of down pillows and comforters myself, I can understand how disappointed you must be. But I’m about to cheer you up right now because down alternative products can feel just like down and offer the same comfortable benefits. While it’s true that down can provide more warmth, the differences are not notable to most people in typical sleep conditions. Down alternative products can cost a lot less than down products, and they are also easier to care for, as many down items require dry cleaning and down alternative items do not. While you might miss some of the aspects of true down, you’ll get better sleep when you sleep with down alternative comforters and pillows that are free from sleep disrupting allergens. At US-Mattress, you can shop through a wide selection of down alternative pillows and comforters at the lowest prices on the web. Shop today, and start getting the comfortable and healthy sleep you deserve!
