Rated 4 out of 5 by nice style I chose this particular colour and style throughout the house and it suits our decor lovely, having the on off as a push switch is better than twist switch in my mind. nice clear finish to the item 25 Mar 2015

Answer: 
The very rapid on off that dimmers use to dim the light effects some lights more than others.
So if you dim 250watts with a 250watt dimmer you have the dimmer working at full capacity for the full period of time.
Its like having a 1600 cc car pull a wagon trailer, it will pull the trailer but slowly and will damage the engine eventually.
Same thing happens with the dimmer, it eventually gets so hot that its integrity breaks down, and the rapid cycles used to turn on and off become unstable.
If you dim 250watts with a 400watt dimer the dimmer has an extra reserve for when it is operating at the desired wattage.The on off cycles are fast enough to allow the 250watts being dimmed to never drop below the minimum operating current for the lamp and is more stable
