Q&A: What is a featherbed?

Au Lit Q&A

Q: What is a featherbed?

A: A featherbed is a feather-filled mattress topper that provides softness to your mattress. It sits on top of your mattress and underneath your mattress pad. It's beneficial for adding comfort to every bed, but will truly enhance your sleeping experience if you have an uncomfortable mattress or futon. It also gives your bed a romantic, sumptuous look; many of our customers describe that it's like "sleeping on a cloud".

So, why aren't featherbeds more popular? For starters, traditional featherbeds get a bad rap. The feather fill - while supportive - is also renowned for poking unsuspecting sleepers in the back with quills! We resolved this issue with our Luxury Featherbed, designed with an ingenious down pillow top. The pillow top protects you from painful quills, all while retaining the firmness of the featherbed itself. A truly luxurious experience, in our opinion!
