The marshmallow bedding trend is all over TikTok – and we know where to get it without breaking the bank

This squishy TikTok bedding trend is following us around – and here's where to get the look for less

As we get cosy for autumn, choosing the right bedding is top priority – and we may have just found a winner in TikTok's beloved Marshmallow bedding, throws and cushions.

We’re pretty sure this bright bedroom idea was started by Urban Outfitters' Marshmallow Puff Quilt, which has been available in the US (and other countries) for a while now and only just arrived in the UK last week. But as much as we love the fluffy cosiness that this throw – and matching cushions – evokes, we might not be quite ready to fork out £199 on a blanket (£49 for a cushion is a bit more reasonable).

So, we set off on a search for a cheaper alternative to get the desirable look for less. And we’re happy to report that we found the perfect substitute for a fraction of the price.

We found a dupe for the famous TikTok marshmallow bedding

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been inundated with TikTok videos like the one below from TikToker by the name of @sareishh, featuring these soft and squishy throws and bedding sets since August of this year. 

The videos got us so excited that we couldn’t wait for the Urban Outfitters OG to arrive in the UK. But now that it has, we’re facing another issue – that of the budget.

Many Americans clearly feel the same way as they turn to their Pottery Barn dupe. The UK answer to the issue? Matalan’s Seersucker Duvet Cover set and a matching Cushion and Throw

The bed linen set is affordably priced, starting at £35 for double size and ending at £45 for super king. And it’s available in six different colours, while the Urban Outfitters throw and cushion only come in three plus one with a floral print.

Sure, the bedding is not quite as plump and puffy as the quilt but for a fraction of the price, we’re happy to cover our best duvet and pillowcases with it (two are included in the set).

The reviews couldn’t be more positive either as 1875 customers (at the time of writing) have given the duvet cover set five-star reviews such as, ‘Really lovely duvet set it looks clean and fresh on the bed it’s great advantage is I tumble dry and because of the seersucker design no ironing required.’ 

Another, meanwhile, wrote, ‘I wasn’t expecting such good quality at a low price. Looks amazing, feels amazing. Would definitely recommend buying this item.’

Yes, you read that right: because of the textured design, no ironing is necessary, which means it might even rival our favourite Dunelm non-iron bedding set

And we certainly didn’t think we’d be saying that so soon...
