bedding glossary.

With all sorts of products and features to choose from, it helps to know common bedding terms you may come across.

  • baffle box.

    In comforters and mattress toppers, this type of construction traps the filling in stitched channels to help maintain loft and prevent shifting or bunching.

  • duvet.

    Often used as another word for a comforter, provides the insulation you need for a good night's sleep.

  • duvet cover.

    A comforter's protective, removable cover. Sold separately and decorative in nature.

  • Egyptian cotton.

    Cultivated mainly in the Nile River Valley in Egypt, this grade of cotton boasts the longest and strongest fibers.

  • fill power.

    A number that denotes the quality of down. The higher the fill power, the fluffier the clusters and the better the insulation and warmth it provides.

  • gusset.

    An extra piece of fabric that can be sewn around the edge of a pillow to enhance its ergonomic quality.

  • mattress pad.

    A pad, often made of cotton or polyester that covers the top of your mattress for added protection. It also provides a layer of softness, comfort and support.

  • mattress topper.

    A thicker pad—constructed of foam, fiber or down—that sits on top of your mattress and adjusts to the contours of your body for optimum comfort and support. King-size toppers can also seamlessly connect two twin mattresses.

  • memory foam.

    A synthetic material that evenly distributes weight, relieving stress on the body's pressure points. It's hypoallergenic, making it a great pick for sneezy sleepers.

  • thread count.

    Typically, the higher the thread count, the denser and smoother the sheet will feel. But a high thread count alone is not a perfect indicator of quality, as many factors, including the type of cotton and weave, can affect a sheet's softness and durability.

  • skirt.

    Attached to the bottom of a mattress pad or topper, the skirt is the material that wraps around the side of the mattress. For the most snug fit, ensure the depth of the skirt aligns with the depth of your mattress.
