What is Boll & Branch?
Boll & Branch is known for its luxurious bedding essentials. They use ethically sourced, organic cotton which has a reputation for being durable and ultra-soft. However, the incredibly steep prices are what consumers aren’t a fan of so we set out to find more budget-friendly alternatives!
Our picks have been tested and thoroughly vetted for quality. In fact, we personally tested them for durability and softness so you can assure you’ll get the luxury bedding you want, for the prices you want! 🤩

These California Design Den sheets are just as luxe as Boll and Branch Sheets but are well over $200 LESS.
Amazon California Design Den Sheets – $39.59+
I knew I had to try these sheets when researching the best Boll and Branch sheet alternatives because they shared many of the same notable features. They’re ethically made, meet the Standard 100 & OEKO Tex Certifications, and are breathable, cool, and pill-proof. Plus, they even have the same hem design as the Boll & Branch sheets.
Here’s what one Amazon reviewer said about these luxury bedding alternatives that totally had me sold:
“Every time we stay at a nice hotel, my husband has sheet envy. He even went so far as to pay well over $200 for a set of Boll & Branch sheets because apparently, presidents have slept on them. Those sheets do not feel like hotel sheets, but these do, and for a fraction of the price! They fit our thick pillow-top mattress nicely. They’re soft but hold their shape for a crisp feel. I also love that you can buy these pieces individually. Highly recommend.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My final thoughts on these sheets after 60 days of testing:
I’ve washed these sheets multiple times and every single time they come out wrinkle-free and soft as ever! Plus, they fit my mattress and mattress topper with room to spare so I know they’ll comfortably fit the deepest of mattresses with ease. After multiple washes, they’ve also remained the same size and haven’t shrunk AT ALL!
Before owning this sheets set, I actually had Parachute sheets which cost far more, but I haven’t put them on my bed since! These affordable Amazon sheets were everything I hoped they would be and more!
I discovered the softness of this Boll and Branch duvet cover alternative after staying at an Airbnb! It’s luxury bedding quality for way less!
DAPU 100% Linen Duvet Cover Set – $136.98+
- Or shop the entire DAPU store on Amazon!
Above is an Airbnb I once stayed in and after sleeping with this duvet for one night I found myself unzipping the bottom to find out what brand it was so I could order one for myself. I was sure it would be out of my price range, but one day I was determined to have one. 🤣 Plus, I absolutely loved that the bottom had a zipper which makes washing a cinch!
Similar to the Boll & Branch duvet covers, this set also has a simple hemmed design, interior corner ties, and is breathable thanks to the 100% Stone-Washed French Linen. Oh, and it comes in 16 different color options, which is 7 more than Boll & Branch. 😉
Another feature I loved about this duvet cover is that it had the effortless style of a linen duvet, but the softness of what I imagine all the Boll & Branch owners rave about…or better.
To my surprise, this duvet cover is 100% linen and so buttery soft. I was also shocked to discover this luxury bedding was available on Amazon at SUCH an affordable price! 😱
My final thoughts on this Boll and Branch duvet cover alternative after 60 days of testing:
I LOVE IT!!! 🤩 For starters, it’s exactly like the quality from the time I stayed in my Airbnb – soft, thick, and LUXE! A few years ago, I splurged on a Parachute duvet cover after a ton of online research and I was seriously disappointed with how scratchy it felt. My new DAPU duvet cover has washed so well and is easy to take on and off thanks to the zipper. Speaking of zippers, a quality zipper on a duvet cover is almost unheard of at this price range!
My top duvet insert pick complements the duvet cover I shared above perfectly. Together, they make for a true luxury bedding experience.
You know just how difficult it is to find the perfect duvet insert if you’ve ever shopped for one. Everyone wants the perfect amount of fluff, without feeling too hot, and something that lasts without looking lumpy. All within a reasonable budget to boot! I’m thrilled to say I’ve found exactly that! 🙌🏼
This Quince duvet insert is ethically sourced (RSD certified), made in the USA, and contains baffle box construction for even distribution of fluff (i.e. it won’t look lumpy and uneven after many months or years of use. It also features corner loops and comes with a generous free return policy for 365 days. 😱
Here’s one review that had me totally sold on this option:
“I tried many brands such as Avocado, Boll and Branch, etc but I found Quince to have excellent quality and a great price point.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My final thoughts on this Boll and Branch duvet insert alternative after 60 days of testing:
My bed before had a Parachute down comforter which cost a pretty penny…are you starting to see a trend here? 😆 YES, I replaced ALL of my spendy bedding with these incredibly affordable finds! Despite my old duvet down comforter being much more expensive, I cannot even tell the difference between the two.
They have the same amount of fluff, even distribution, and really do keep your temperature regulated at night. I’m thrilled with this duvet insert and didn’t expect much for the super low cost, but I’m truly wowed by the quality! This is luxury bedding at a practical price! 😍
Boll and Branch pillows are nice, but these Quince-made pillows are even better and cost about $58 LESS per pillow.
Premium Down Alternative Pillows – $39.90 per pillow
Just like the Quince duvet insert, their pillows are ethically sourced (RSD certified), made in the USA, and hypoallergenic. I first tried their soft/medium pillows but didn’t feel they had enough fluff, so I took advantage of their generous free return policy (which is good for 365 days!). It was a silver lining because I was able to witness just how wonderful their customer service is! 🤩
When I did my exchange, I somehow only issued an exchange on one of my pillows despite mailing back both of the ones I ordered. When I realized only one pillow was in my new order, I called their customer service and I had another pillow on the way minutes later. It was a wonderful and easy experience! 👏🏻
Here’s what one reviewer said about the medium/firm pillows that had me convinced I needed to exchange for this set:
“I have been to every store, testing and smushing all the down-alternative pillows imaginable. Normally I am a tried and true buy-it-in-the-store after evaluating it in person, but I took a gamble on Quince because the website and cost just made sense. I have to say, they feel uber-luxe, just like the ones I tried in high-end retailers, I totally believe they source from the same places. I ordered two in the medium/firm and will be going back for more. They are pretty soft and smushable so even I, a stomach sleeper am comfortable. If I was a side sleeper I might try to find an even plusher one but for the price, these are too good to beat!”
My final thoughts on these pillows after 60 days of testing:
They’re LEGIT! I wholeheartedly agree with the initial review I read and they’re everything they say they are. Plush, fluffy, and perfect! As a fellow occasional stomach sleeper, I think these are perfect! Plus, my partner who is really picky about pillows has even enjoyed sleeping on these every night without complaint (which is rare!).
I just love how they look on our bed too. They have a perfectly relaxed look and don’t look stiff like other pillows. As a bonus, they fit the DAPU linen covers that come with the duvet cover, perfectly. 👏🏻
I will say, I don’t think they’re quite supportive enough for side sleeping. So I wouldn’t recommend these are your primary pillow if that’s how you sleep, but if you’re looking for the perfect finishing touch to your Boll and Branch aesthetic-looking bed, these should be it!
I found a very affordable Boll and Branch waffle knit blanket alternative, but it’s one essential from my 60 days of testing I probably wouldn’t recommend.
Great Bay Home Cotton All-Season Waffle Weave Knit Blanket – $44.99+ (currently OOS!)
Not everything I tested for my how to make a bed like Boll and Branch for less post panned out. However, it’s not too heartbreaking considering this waffle knit is currently sold out!
After 60 days of testing and a few washes later, I was pretty underwhelmed with this bedding essential. Not only did it shrink enough that I could no longer tuck it in on either side, but the hem along the top and bottom came out wrinkled every time so unless I washed it, it would look pretty messy. I also find the fabric to be rather stiff and not the best quality. If you’re wondering how to make your bed luxurious, this might be one alternative to skip.
While I still wouldn’t spend Boll & Branch money for a similar waffle blanket, I may consider this organic waffle knit blanket I found on Etsy in the future. 😉
