How to choose the right product from the bedding test or comparison above
Leave a Comment
- Covers for pillows and duvets are known as bed linen in everyday life. Indeed counting actually sheets too. Bed linen absorbs the moisture that we lose at night and ensures a comfortable sleep.
- There are warm bedding for winter like beaver or flannel, but also cooling like satin or silk. The standard size is 135 x 200 cm, but there are also various oversizes. Reversible bedding with different motifs or even different materials is also popular.
- Encasing (protective cover for the mattress) can also reduce the allergen pollution caused by mites in the air and is particularly suitable for allergy sufferers.
Not all beds are gray at night: the soft sleep companions are available in countless designs, colors and with prints depending on taste or living style. This is how pillowcases and duvet covers shine in your favorite club (e.g. FC Schalke, Bayern Munich or 1. FC Cologne) or delight your children with animal motifs such as horses. Of course, you will also find reversible bed linen or single-color models made from warm beaver bed linen for the winter or elegant, cool satin bed linen. Not only soft and noble carpets can upgrade your bedroom – high-quality silk bed linen also allows luxury to move into your room. In our 2019/2020 bed linen comparison, we will show you which different types there are, what the usual sizes are and what you should pay attention to if you want to buy bed linen. With the help of our purchasing advice, go on the search for your bed linen comparison winner with whom you are guaranteed to be right.
1. What actually belongs to bed linen?
High quality reversible bedding from PiP Studio.
The concept of bed linen is broad and refers to textiles that are used in bed. Both the bed sheet and the pillow and duvet cover are summarized in the bedding category. Protective covers for the mattress are also included. In our bed linen comparison we found out that linen and covers have been made of linen since the 17th century, from 1860 they were also made of cotton. You can often find 2-piece or 4-piece bed linen in stores today. Some providers even advertise that you print on your bed linen – just the way you like it.
They are available for both king-size beds and standard sizes. Of course, you will also find colorfully printed children’s bedding.
Bed linen affects a good night’s sleep. We briefly summarized why bedding makes sense in our purchasing advice:
- the bedding can absorb moisture well, sleep is more restful
- can reduce the mite allergen burden (suitable for allergy sufferers)
- there are very soft, supple fabrics that cool or warm fabrics for the winter
- large selection of designs to match your bedroom
- should be washed regularly
2. What materials are there?
With the large selection of materials and fabrics, it is not easy to find the best bed linen for your own needs and at home in the bedroom. In addition to a bedspread, a classic bedspread and sheets, covers made of comfortable fabric for a bed are important features. For example, Renforcé and beaver bed linen are particularly popular with children’s bed linen. With baby bedding, we advise against a classic duvet cover and recommend a sleeping bag and a bed sheet (e.g. fitted sheet). In the following overview we have summarized the properties of the fabrics for bed covers and you can find out which fibers are suitable for which season.
|cotton||The popular natural fiber is smooth and therefore feels pleasantly cool on the skin. In addition, it is particularly kind to the skin, absorbs moisture well and is often cheaper than jersey and beaver.|
|seersucker||The relief-like surface of the Seersucker bed linen provides insulating air cushions. The cotton fabric keeps warmth and the bed linen need not be ironed. The visible seersucker stripes, the so-called crepe effect, are characteristic due to the different tension in the yarns.|
|jersey||Jersey warms especially in the cold season. This often elastic fabric consists of various materials such as viscose blends, cotton or silk and was knitted to create a light rib pattern. Jersey bedding is breathable, supple, but can warp easily.|
|beaver||Biber bed linen is a cotton fabric that has been roughened on one or both sides. This makes it thicker and softer. Beaver bedding feels warm and is great for winter.|
|renforcé||This material is also made of cotton fabric. It is non-iron, durable and has a temperature-compensating effect. It is one of the suitable fabrics for warm summer nights.|
|flannel||Flannel bedding is thicker than beaver bedding, but also roughened. Flannel is also ideal for the cold season.|
|microfiber||These fibers, also called microfibers, are “micro” – that is, they are particularly fine. Microfiber bedding is soft and can be made from natural or synthetic fabrics. Examples include polyester and acrylic.|
|lawn||Linon is also a fabric made of 100% cotton, which consists of medium to fine thread yarns. It is smooth and more robust than beaver and, in contrast to this, is more suitable for summer.|
|satin||Satin bed linen is very smooth and shiny, it is a good heat store and is made of different materials, which can also be synthetic (e.g. polyester). However, the cooling satin bed linen usually also has its price.|
|silk||If you want to sleep in the luxurious sheen of natural fibers, you should use silk bed linen. It cools in summer, is pleasantly soft but also not cheap.|
3. Purchase criteria for bed linen: You have to pay attention to this
The common measure for duvets in Germany is a length of 200 cm and a width of 135 cm. Of course, other sizes (such as 155 cm) are also available for wider ceilings. Bedding 155×220 or bedding 200×220 is a so-called oversize but is now also not uncommon. Couples in particular like to sleep under a wider duvet. Not only tall people prefer a particularly long blanket with 220 cm instead of 200 cm in length, other people also want ideal duvets or large legroom for large beds. The price of oversize duvets is about a third (155×220) to double (200×200) higher than the standard size of 135×200 cm.
Depending on your own preferences, you can choose between a zipper or buttons. At first glance, a zipper appears more practical and saves time. If he is inferior, you can also make trouble with it. Some people find it too cold when they bump into it with their feet. The good old buttons have not yet completely gone out of fashion and can also be "repaired" if necessary, ie sewn again. There are also covers without a closure, the so-called hotel closure. If you want to see what it looks like and how you can sew a pillow case yourself, find out in the following video:
4. Bedding for allergy sufferers
If you are looking for allergy-friendly bed linen, we recommend – like many bed linen tests – articles made from 100% certified organic cotton. It has the lowest allergic potential and no toxic substances such as insecticides are used in the cultivation. In general, natural fibers such as cotton are more suitable because they can be washed at at least 40 degrees and thus mites can be killed. If you can wash the bedclothes including sheets at 60 ° C, this is of course even better and will surely remove all possible allergens. Especially with children’s bedding is this a big advantage. Naturally mite-repellent silk bed linen is just as good a tip for restful sleep as a bedroom temperature below 18 ° C.
Tip: For a healthy sleep, you can also pull an encasing, a so-called protective cover, over the mattress. The allergenic mite droppings are held by the encasing and do not spread in the air and you can sleep peacefully. You can see which bedding is suitable for allergy sufferers in addition to the usual marketing imprints, as well as the washing temperature.
5. Popular manufacturers and brands

6. Bed linen at the Stiftung Warentest
The independent consumer portal Stiftung Warentest is happy to be the first point of contact when customers want to buy high-quality products. Unfortunately, the Stiftung Warentest has not yet carried out a bed linen test and we cannot give you a recommendation on the best bed linen.
However, there is a detailed comparison to allergy-related covers for mattresses in the test 03/2003 edition. Here the Allergocover and betty Allerguard did the best. They protect very well from the mite allergens. If you are looking for a cozy duvet, the test of issue 11/2007 of the portal can also help here.
7. Questions and answers about bed linen
7.1. How often change bed linen?
Ask yourself "How often do you wash bed linen"? If you tend to sweat profusely during sleep or prefer not to wear sleepwear, we recommend changing the bed linen and sheets once a week. This also applies if you are allergic to house dust or if your child makes heavy use of the children’s bedding. Otherwise, it is enough to wash the bed linen every two to four weeks. If your bedding is linting heavily, you can create some smoothness in a few simple steps thanks to the lint shaver.
7.2. Bed linen: which detergent is suitable?
In our 2019/2020 bed linen comparison, we advise you to use color detergent with which you can wash your laundry hygienically even at 60 ° C and with which the strong colors are retained. Of course, you can also use universal detergents that you can put in the washing machine at 40 degrees.
7.3. What bed linen in winter?
In the cold season, of course, you can look forward to a cozy, warm bed. During this time, fabrics such as flannel, beaver, jersey or nicky are popular, which are particularly soft and feel warm on the skin.
7.4. From when bed linen for the baby?
In many bedding tests, it is recommended to provide your baby with bedding at the earliest in the second year of life – we also agree with this assessment. The pillow should be as flat as possible. It depends on the personal feeling of the offspring and there is no fixed rule. It may also be better to start the changeover in warm months if the child is kicking off the blanket and has to get used to it.
7.5. What is Renforcé bed linen?
Renforcé is medium-fine woven cotton that is very hard-wearing. It is smooth and is also used for shirts. Like all cotton fabrics, Renforcé bed linen absorbs moisture well and is suitable as allergy-free bed linen. It is more suitable for the summer months.
