It is inevitable that your down comforter will wear out, although how long it lasts is largely dependent upon how you care for it. Here are some facts about down comforters:  

  • A down comforter should last between 10 and 15 years
  • A down comforter could last 20 years or more with proper care  
In order to minimize the life of your down comforter, follow these rules:  
  • Do not lay on top of your down comforter
  • Do not jump on your down comforter 

It is important to resist the urge to hop on your nicely-made bed after a long day. What will happen is the friction will break down the clusters in your down comforter and start to grind them into dust.

  Nothing feels nice than hoping into a clean bed  

A down comforter will start showing its first signs of wear in the shoulder area. This is due to the friction that is induced by your shoulders when you turn from side to side while sleeping. Here are a couple of more professional bedding insights:   

  • Restless sleepers will wear out their down comforter quicker than those who sleep with less movement.   
  • Holding your down comforter up in a lighted room or up against natural light will show you if there are any worn out compartments. If those compartments are indeed worn, then it is time for a new down comforter.
