TIP: When Selecting Quilt Cover Size!
It is recommended that your Doona and Quilt Cover are both a size larger than your bed. This allows for a nice overhang at the end and on the sides of the bed, and therefore ensures that you do not see the mattress. This is especially relevant for newer beds, as mattresses have progressively become higher over the years.
