In Colloquial

- Sep 05, 2019-

In colloquial Australian English, a duvet is also called a doona (plural doonas). In American English, it may be called a comforter; however, a comforter is usually a slightly different type of bedding that is not as thick, does not have a cover, and is often used over a top sheet. In the United Kingdom a duvet is also known as a continental quilt (often just shortened to quilt).
