At Family Handyman, we’ve covered everything from the best heated blankets to the best air mattresses and best mattresses in a box. But now we’re getting into what makes a bed so comfortable that you truly never want to leave—bedding.

The Sunday Citizen Snug Comforter has been gaining rapid popularity, and we wanted to see what the buzz was about for ourselves. So we placed our order to put it to the ultimate comfort test.

Sunday Citizen began as a brand for stylish hotel bedding, and it has transformed into a brand that seeks to elevate your bedroom at home to five-star status. It claims its Snug Comforter is “what dreams are made of.” (We’ll be the judge of that!)

What is the Sunday Citizen Snug Comforter?

The Snug Comforter is an all-in-one bed cover designed to replace your duvet, duvet cover and top sheet. It has a snuggly plush top and a cooling bamboo bottom, so you can use the soft, cloud-like top on colder nights and flip it over to use the hypoallergenic, cool side on warmer evenings.

But it gets better: The comforter is made entirely from recycled plastic bottles and is completely machine washable. What more could you ask for in a comforter?

Sunday Citizen Snug Comforter Features

The Snug Comforter‘s snuggly side is made of soft microfiber while the cooling side is viscose from bamboo. The filling is made of Global Recycled Standard (GRS)-certified recycled polyester, and this label guarantees reduction of the harmful impact of production on people and the environment. So you can rest assured (pun intended) that the Snug Comforter doesn’t only look and feel nice, but it’s good for the environment, too.

It’s not often that we stumble across a luxury home bedding brand that also focuses on sustainability. We love that in 2023. And you don’t have to worry about sacrificing style for sustainability either. The Snug Comforter lays on the bed much like a standard down comforter (although it would be considered a down alternative), and it’s available in 11 classic colors, including sage (a gray-green), sienna (a burnt orangish brown) and purple haze (a cool lavender), as well as limited-edition hues.

It comes in three sizes: twin, full/queen and king/California king. It’s easy to clean and care for the Snug Comforter, too. While you can wash it as much as you like, it’s recommended that you wash the it on a low or no-spin cycle and tumble dry it on low.

How We Tested It

I tested the Snug Comforter for several nights of sleeping, cozied up in it with my dog and washed it! As far as comfort goes, the feel lives up to its name. It’s snuggly, soft and just heavy enough to provide that hotel comforter feel. You know what I mean—it provides warmth and coziness when the AC is blasting, but it’s not heavy enough to make you sweat under the covers on warmer nights.

I tested the full/queen size on a queen mattress, and I found it to hang just a little shorter on the sides of the bed than I would prefer. Albeit I tend to like oversized, drapey bedding. Regardless, I do think the full/queen size would probably look best on a full-size mattress. If you want an oversized look on a queen mattress, you could opt for the king size. Overall, this is a small detail that I can look past for the comforter’s softness, sustainability and low maintenance.

Another thing I did notice was that the plush side of the comforter seemed to collect animal hair and dust quickly. I have a German Shepherd who sheds quite a bit, and his black hair stood out on the white comforter. Honestly, his hair collects on any type of bedding, but the plush side seems to trap it in a little more than I’d like. However, a lot of the hair did come off in the washing machine. I also think a darker color would have shown less hair, so that’s something to keep in mind when you’re deciding on a color for your Snug Comforter.

As far as washing goes, the Snug Comforter does hold up in the washing machine. In fact, it came out looking almost brand new. Now, I’ve only washed it twice since owning it, so I can’t speak for how the comforter will hold up after months or years of washing, but other reviewers seem to have good experiences tossing it in the washing machine as frequently as they would other bedding.

What Other Reviewers Had to Say

With nearly 700 reviews from verified purchasers, the Snug Comforter earns an average of 4.8 out of five stars at Sunday Citizen.

Adalaina H. gives it five stars and writes, “This comforter is truly the best. The quality and comfort is unmatched. It’s lightweight but warm and cozy. I’ve washed it [more than three] times already and it still looks brand new.”

Verified buyer, Courtney M., says, “I just love this. It’s a joy to get into bed each night with it. My two Great Danes sleep on it and it doesn’t get scratched up or pulled or even dirty showing. I’m sold for life. I washed it once so far (king) and it did great.”

“I am soooo in love with my comforter,” shares Penny E., a five-star reviewer. “It’s so incredibly soft, has some weight to it and is perfect for all seasons. The only thing I would say is that the fabric will snag if you have a dog that likes to paw at your bed to find it’s spot. I’m so glad I chose the purple haze, but am hoping they come out with sheets and pillow cases with the solid color, as the only color that really matches is the white.”

Final Verdict

After sifting through buyer reviews from people who have owned the Snug Comforter for longer periods of time, I found that a few people said their pet’s nails did eventually snag the comforter. As I said, my large dog cozied up in the comforter with no issues, but I also keep his nails cut. If you have a pet with long nails or some other outside force that would cause bedding to snag, then you may want to be a little more careful with your Snug Comforter. (You could even change out the look of it and add another layer of protection with an added duvet cover. Although, that would defeat the all-in-one purpose of the comforter.)

Based on the overall quality, feel and look of the Snug Comforter, I would still highly recommend it for an all-in-one bedding option that has the bonus of a hotel feel!
