In example, if I make my companion wear full set of Dwarven armor, will she get some kind of reward bonus (like in Diablo) for wearing full set?

The only armors that have a sort of "set bonus" are in the DLCs. All other armors only have the perk bonuses for a matching set.

From Dawnguard:

  • Dawnguard Light - 25% less damage from Vampires and Drain Life spells
  • Dawnguard Heavy - same bonus

From Dragonborn:

  • Ahzidal's Armor - 10% Enchanting with the full set
  • Deathbrand Armor - each piece's enchantment gets stronger when wearing more pieces of the set

Also from Dragonborn, but weapons:

  • Soulrender and Bloodscythe - absorb health and magicka, chance to reduce armor and dispel magic when used together

Do you know if these set bonuses work for a follower as well? – tugs Jan 31 '14 at 17:52
I don't believe so – Affine Feb 1 '14 at 0:46

No, there are not armor set bonuses in Skyrim.

The closest thing is a range of perks that will improve various attributes when wearing a full set from a particular category. This wiki page details this towards the bottom of the page.

However, perks obviously don't affect your companion.
