Get an Oversized Comforter

Due to the popularity of deeper, pillow-top mattresses, some manufacturers offer "oversized queen" and "oversized king" comforter sizes in addition to their standard sizes. These comforters offer more width for their length. In the case of queen comforters, they are usually about 98 inches wide, and for king comforters, they are about 115 inches wide.

If you want a wide comforter but do not want to jump up to the next standard size, this option can be a good compromise.


It is generally fine for the comforter to be slightly oversized so it hangs below the bottom of the mattress. The space between the bottom of the mattress and the floor may be covered with a bed skirt or ruffle, and it is visually more pleasing for the comforter to overlap the skirt than for it to fall short.
