When you go to sleep at night, do you treat yourself like royalty? Well, you should. After all, everyone needs, and deserves, a great night of sleep. Only by sleeping well and waking up refreshed and ready to go can you face the busy day that is ahead of you. Even science has shown that those people who get plenty of rest are not only healthier people, they are happier too. Sleep is essential for a healthy body and a healthy mind.

This desire to treat yourself like royalty is no doubt why bed and bedding makers started naming the various bed sizes after kings and queens. They knew that people wanted to be treated well while asleep, that they looked for and demanded the height of comfort while spending time in bed. But for some people, these names can be a bit confusing. What does it mean, exactly, to be on the lookout for a queen comforter? How is a queen comforter different than a full comforter or a king?

The other thing to know is that the dimensions that are offered in a queen comforter are slightly different from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some will be slightly larger in size and some will be slightly smaller. The range of sizes, however, will be about the same. Note as well that the dimensions for comforters, down comforters, and blankets are a bit different when it comes to queen sized, which you will see below.

When bedding manufacturers are talking about comforters, usually those made of cotton, a queen or full sized comforter will be in the range of about 88 by 88 inches. For down comforters, which usually run a bit bigger, this range is about 90 by 98 inches. Finally, for blankets, the range is about 90 by 90 inches for queen comforters. Of course, some manufacturers offer an oversized queen comforter, which may run in dimensions higher than those given here. Given this, it is a good idea to know your queen bed’s dimensions and buy your queen comforter based on how much room you are going to need and want.
