A comforter is sometimes covered for protection and prolonged use. Comforter covers are similar in principle to pillowcases, usually closed with zippers or buttons. In the United Kingdom the term comforter is not generally used. It is instead called a quilt, duvet or an eiderdown. A duvet differs in that it is thicker and usually used without blankets or extra sheets.
Sometimes a comforter is sold as a "bed in a bag". This term usually denotes an entire set of bedding, including either a comforter or duvet with its cover. Comforters are sometimes packaged in a set that also includes a bed skirt, pillow shams, and sometimes pillows.
The terminology comforter comes from the word comfort. Comforters are usually used in the winter season when it is very cold. Due to the thickness of a comforter or the amount of down/feathers or other filling it has, a person is insulated against cold.
Comforter sizes correspond with bed sizes: twin, full, queen, king, and cal-king. Comforter sizes run slightly larger than mattress sizes to allow for draping over the sides of the bed. Typical sizes in the United States for comforters are:
Twin = 64" (163 cm) width × 87" (221 cm) length
Queen / Full = 87" (221 cm) width × 87" (221 cm) length
King = 101" (257 cm) width × 90" (229 cm) length.
