So, what does a Cuddledown mom send with her kiddo to college for his bed? OK, I admit it, maybe I went a little overboard; a featherbed (‘cause college mattresses are flat and gross) with a nice waterproof mattress pad over that – just in case… and it will protect him from dorm room “ickys” (like dust mites-and with recent outbreaks of bed bugs – a little extra protection doesn’t hurt), a nice set of sheets (not only because the aquamarine was on sale…a good boy color…but also because, with deep 18” pockets, they’ll fit over all the other stuff and will wash easily…if he washes them! I hope he washes them), a down comforter in “blanket warmth” (he’s a heater so a down blanket, being lighter, is perfect, and aren’t dorm rooms usually warm?) etc…etc…etc… Yes, there’s more but I’m already embarrassing myself! Or am I? He, too, thought I was nuts until all the kids on his floor wanted to test out his bed and (if I may just brag) who’s the most envied on his floor? My guy! So, I ask you…what can Mom do to help her college kid get off to a good start? And make sure they sleep well…if they sleep? Maybe I didn’t go overboard after all! I’m going to be proud of myself until the first girlfriend comes around, right? What kind of bedding did you send your kids/grandkids off to school with?

Hi Jenni: So are you inquiring about a comforter size or a duvet cover size that is 110"x96"? If you have a comforter that is 110"x96", our duvet cover sizes are: King 107"x92" and OS King 114"x96" - so I'd go with the OS King for sure.Danielle on: Comforter Sizing Guidelines – To Choose or Not to Choose
