Dorm rooms are notorious for being really hot or really cold - so we advise layering for maximum flexibility. Generally speaking most twin comforters sold for back to school season run skimpy on the width and length. For the most part a 68 x 88 size twin comforter is good enough - and of course a 68 x 92 extra long twin is the perfect maximum length. The choice of down versus down alternative is a personal decision that will be impacted by price and durability. Some college students like to have matching comforters and room d(c)cor - others like a classic crisp white comforter like at home. Regardless it is advised that the comforter can be machine washed (for eventual cleaning - usually at home). Down dorm comforters are a nice choice that allow for a breathable and hypoallergenic bedding solution that will be sure to make roommates jealous.
Polyester filled dorm comforters usually use a 'batted' material which is a bonded layer of polyester that is then sewn sandwiched between the decorative fabrics. These comforters can be washed and dried but usually experience ripped seams or pilled fabric before the end of the year. The best recommendation for this bedding is to use it, enjoy it and throw it away at the end of the school year. Because most students live in the dorms for 1.5 years this may or may not be a worthwhile strategy. These type comforters are also not very helpful for keeping college students warm in the dead of winter. Students often pile on a couple articles of bedding to keep warm.
Plush or Novelty fabric dorm comforters are really difficult to wash and often just shred apart. Again they generally wash like the cheap polyester comforters mentioned above and have a shelf life of 1 year. The plush fabrics are also problematic for allergy suffering students as they plush material acts as a giant sponge for allergens.
