Why do you not put a fabric boxing or gusset aroung the outer edge of your featherbed as some other manufacturers do?

Simple, and common sense. It may look good in the photographs, but it is unnecessary and impractical, and serves little purpose. The fabric wall comprising the outer edge of the featherbed will just not retain its shape under full body weight. It simply collapses underneath your cover or fitted sheet. Then you can feel two rows of piping and stitching, together with the extra band of fabric, gathered under your sheet and protruding from the side of the bed. DeWoolfson has a simpler and more comfortable idea: We cut our featherbeds large enough so that when filled they "draw up" to the exact size of your mattress. And the single "knife" edge of pipping lays flat against the corner of your mattress virtually undetectable under your sheets. This makes common sense. . . and after all, we think all of our customers should sleep like the princess and the pea.
