Blanket Sizes: Which Size Is Right For You?

Blanket Sizes: Which Size Is Right For You?

Blankets are used gradually throughout different stages of life, from an infant to a toddler to a child’s first bed. But blankets have other purposes as well, they can be decorative blankets or used as bedding to help you stay warm on cold nights. A blanket makes beds cozier and more comfortable, which makes it a great addition to any bedroom! With different blanket sizes and materials available on the market, which blanket size is right for you?

Blanket sizes aren’t standardized and their materials can range from large and heavy wool to light and airy cotton. The size of a blanket can affect how useful it is, so finding the right blanket will depend on the space it’s covering or what it’s being used for.

What is the difference between a blanket, comforter, and duvet?

Before jumping into the world of blankets, let’s cover the difference between a blanket, comforter, and duvet because it can get confusing. A blanket is made out of one layer of fabric, which can be wool, cotton, fleece, polyester, or other fibers. A comforter and a duvet both include fillings to have a fluffy and thick form. The filling is usually a down or down alternative like synthetic fibers.

A comforter is one piece with the filling sewn inside of it, while a duvet is two layers, it consists of an insert and a duvet cover. The insert works as the filling for a duvet. Both bedding options are great heat insulators because of their fillings.

As for blankets, they are essential to maintain the warmth of one's body. The thermal efficiency of blankets helps in retaining the heat generated by the human body during rest. A blanket can be placed under or on top of a duvet or comforter for extra coziness.

Blanket Sizes For Mattresses | Puffy

Bed blanket sizes will vary depending on your mattress dimensions, the blanket size should correlate to the mattress or it should be slightly larger. Taking into consideration the mattress thickness, make sure it is a few inches wider from the side and longer from the bottom for it to fit the mattress perfectly.

Different Blanket Materials

Blankets come in a variety of materials, such as cotton, fleece, wool, or knitted yarn. Some materials are more durable and softer than others. The most commonly used materials are:


Should I buy a blanket bigger than my bed?

If you want to fully wrap yourself in a blanket or you’re sharing the bed with someone, then maybe you should consider upgrading your blanket one size up. Alternatively, your blanket size should correlate to your mattress size.

Is there a blanket bigger than a king?

The king blanket is the most popular blanket size for large beds like the king or Cal king mattress. It measures 108 by 100 inches, which should be slightly bigger than the mattress. However, there is also an oversized king blanket that approximately measures 132 by 120 inches. But this size will be too big, even for a Cal king bed.

What size blanket goes on a queen size bed?

A queen bed dimensions are 60 by 80 inches, it is the most popular mattress size on the market and you can easily find blanket sizes for it. A suitable blanket size for a queen bed will be a full blanket, which is usually 80 by 90 inches, or a queen blanket, which is 90 by 100 inches - both options will cover the bed.

What is a 50x60 blanket?

Throw blankets usually measure 50 x 60 inches, throws can be decorative blankets placed on the edge of a bed or on the couch, but they are also functional. Throws can be used for warmth while napping, reading, or watching TV. These blankets are often very soft and made of synthetic fabrics.

What are standard blanket sizes?

There are various blanket sizes and one blanket can have more than one function. But with standard mattress sizes, blankets that are used on mattresses have a standard size. The blanket size should be the same size as the mattress or a few inches larger. For example, a king mattress measures 76 x 80 inches and the standard king size blanket is 108 x 100 inches.

Conclusion: Choosing The Right Blanket Size

It’s important to remember that blanket sizes vary depending on what you’re using them for. If you’re buying a standard bed blanket, consider taking your mattress measurements - your blanket should be the same size or slightly larger, depending on your mattress thickness. With a Puffy blanket, we got you ‘covered’ no matter what your mattress size is!
