The Bloomingdale’s My Luxe Asthma & Allergy Friendly down comforter is a luxury comforter that is ideal for winter sleeping.
If you are in the market for a luxury comforter, an excellent choice is the My Luxe Asthma & Allergy Friendly, it’s not cheap but it’s absolutely wonderful and great for sleeping. The item is a Bloomingdale’s exclusive, so it’s a good way to make use of a Bloomingdale’s gift certificate or coupon code.
The My Luxe has a soft shell made of “plaid jacquard cotton dobby shell,” which is a 350-thread count cotton material that feels quite light, despite the weight of the down in the comforter. The covering material has some texture, making it less rough than linen but not as smooth has a higher thread count cotton. It’s comfortable but not silky.
Inside the comforter is European goose down which can be filled to two different weights: medium weight (tested) and light weight. This is 700-fill power down, making it a high quality down. (700-fill power mark very good quality down, but not the top quality found in a 900 that you’d see in a top-end sleeping bag.)
The lightweight model features 27-32 oz. of goose down while the medium one has 35-43 oz., with the range based on whether you buy it in the Full/Queen size (tested) or King. The goose down is compartmented into baffle boxes to prevent clumping over time, as is standard in nicer comforters.
Sizing is standard, with Full/Queen measuring 94 inches long by 100 inches wide. The King size is 112 inches long by 100 inches wide.
One nice perk of this comforter is that it is made in the USA, though obviously of imported materials given the use of European goose down. Another feature is dedicated corner loops for attaching it to a duvet cover, which will ensure a long life to the comforter and add an extra weight (perfect if you don’t sleep with a sheet).
A big selling point of this model is that it’s ideal for people who have allergies. It’s been fully certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) as being hypo-allergenic and useable by individuals with both allergies and asthma.
Sleeping Under The My Luxe
Having used the medium weight comforter for a few months in a North East winter, I can tell you that it’s one of my favorites that I’ve ever used.
I particularly like its warmth, which makes it ideal for winter sleeping when used without sheet under it. We do use it with a duvet cover (which adds the weight of at least two sheets on top of you) but the comforter itself is comfortable, breathable, and not too heavy.
The My Luxe has a really nice thickness to it, so it’s a tall comforter, which blocks light from your face and helps with warmth. The thickness makes the bed look extra inviting and luxurious as well.
The only downsides of this medium weight My Luxe comforter are the price, which will typically be around $600, but can almost always be found on some sort of sale, and that it’s rather warm so it’s definitely not an all-season comforter.
Matouk Chalet Down Comforter Alternative
One of the most soft-after names in comforters is Matouk. The Matouk Chalet line of comforters is quite nice, but supremely expensive (something like $1600 for the equivalent of the My Luxe).
The My Luxe is a good alternative to the Matouk, because it’s under half the price but similar in features. The Matouk has some upgrades for sure, including 800-fill power down (instead of 700) and a higher thread count shell which is made of high quality Swiss cotton. Even so, spending over $1000 on a comforter simply isn’t going to be practical for many people.
