Twin XL beds--full comforter?

<p>I know dorms have extra long twin beds and require twin extra long sheets. But it seems as though there isn't a standard twin extra long comforter/duvet cover at places where they sell extra long twin sheets. I did some research and found that most people just use regular twin comforters/duvet covers. I love to get all curled up in my comforter...will a twin comforter cover my bed? Or would having a full size comforter/duvet cover make sense? Is that a fairly common thing on campus? Will a full size comforter just be too big for my bed?</p>

<p>Sorry if this is a weird question, and thanks in advance!</p>

<p>The twin comforter will be fine, and full will probably be way too big, especially if one side of your bed is pushed up against a wall.</p>

<p>During August, Stores will have them on sale for like $10. Twin XL</p>

<p>I like curling up, and my solution is actually a king-sized comforter. Why?</p>

<p>Well, a king-sized bed is exactly two Twin XLs side-by side. So, the comforter folds over perfectly. It's really the perfect combination for curling up during a cold night.</p>

<p>You're overthinking. A lot.</p>

<p>I used a full comforter when I lived in a dorm.. It worked out fine. It wasn't way too big nor did it get in the way.</p>

<p>I used a twin sized comforter on my twin XL bed and was perfectly content. It never even occurred to me to think it might be too small.</p>

<p>Wait until August when all the stores have college stuff. You'll have no problem finding a twin XL comforter.</p>

<p>I got my twin XL fleecey blanket last August at the Bonton home store for $20 and it was perfect!</p>

<p>We dropped off my son at his internship uni and they provide everything except a twin XL mattress pad. So we went looking for one. BBB had them for $30. Target had them for $4. So we went with that. He took his queen comforter as he likes to look like a rollup.</p>

<p>I too took a queen comforter. It hung over enough so it didn't look like my tall bed was highwatering it, if you know what I mean.</p>

<p>In DD's dorm, the beds have hooks that can be set at about four different levels, so things go underneath them (like the dresser). A bigger comforter might cover up the underbed mess. Although I would be willing wager that the only time DD's bed is made is the time I make it when she moves in so it really doesn't matter one bit.</p>

<p>You shouldn't have any problems finding a Twin XL comforter. Maybe you just have to wait a bit more until all the college stuff is in stores, but for me, my mom found a set of Twin XL bedclothes that included two sets of sheets, 2 pillowcases, and a comforter. I know these sets are fairly common at places like Target and Wal-Mart.</p>
