What is the difference between a comforter and a duvet cover?

The main difference between a duvet and comforter is that a comforter is just one piece of bedding while a duvet requires two separate pieces — an insert and cover. A comforter is usually quilted with the filling evenly distributed, while a duvet has an insert that works as the fill.

What is the difference between duvet and bed cover?

Can I use a duvet cover as a comforter?

They can be used with comforters as well, but be sure to double-check the sizing. If you use a duvet cover, you can still use sheets, but some think they’re unnecessary.
