It’s a well-known fact that we spend a third of our lives asleep, so we should be investing in achieving good sleep quality. The thought that one type of bedding is suitable for anyone is a common mistake and nothing is less true. Every individual has their own needs and has different sleeping patterns or positions that require different bedding. If you’re curious about the perfect pillow for you, you can read our blog with four tips on how to choose the right pillow. A duvet, however, can also have a big impact on how we sleep and that is exactly what we will be discussing in this blog. We will highlight the main five types of sleepers and what duvets we recommend for them.
Bedding for hot sleepers
Are you one of those people who, no matter the temperature outside, always gets hot during the night? This can be a real struggle as you want the comfort of a duvet, but it will have you waking up throughout the night, bathing in sweat. Not a great feeling. The “one leg outside the duvet” tactic might help for a few minutes, but the end result is always the same. For warm-blooded people, the Breathe Duvet is the ultimate solution as it will keep you cool throughout the entire night. That’s right, the Breathe Duvet uses innovative climate control that helps to regulate the temperature of your body. The duvet blends our Smartfil® technology with a special ingredient called Modal, which helps to wick moisture away from our body and keeps you cool. To stay even cooler during hot summer nights, you can use the Smart Temperature Pillow which uses a unique Activated Cooling™ technology to keep you cool. No more waking up throughout the night feeling overheated, instead, you will wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start the day.
Cold sleepers’ perfect duvet
You might be the absolute opposite of a hot sleeper and get cold shivers throughout the night. This as well can cause a lot of waking up during the night, which messes up your sleep quality. For the cold sleepers, it’s important to find a duvet that will keep you warm the entire night like the Bronze Goose Down Duvet. This duvet is filled with 90% of the plumpest, softest Hungarian goose down clusters which keeps the body warm.
Duvets for active sleepers
Do you move around a lot during the night? Then you may consider yourself to be an active sleeper. For active sleepers and especially their partners, it can be extremely useful to get a large duvet. Why? Because active sleepers move around a lot, the same will happen to the duvet. Your partner will be busy pulling the duvet the entire night instead of getting their much-needed sleep. We advise active sleepers to get a duvet that is a size up from their bed size. So if you have a king bed, we advise you to get a super-king-size duvet. The Eco Duvet is available in emperor size, which is the largest size available at Fine Bedding Company. Besides its size, the Eco Duvet is eco-friendly as it’s made out of 100% recycled materials.
Anti-allergy bedding for allergic sleepers
Achoo! Waking up in the middle of the night because you can’t stop sneezing might possibly be the worst feeling there is. Many people suffer from dust mite allergies and they can flare up during the night. Why? Because dust mites like comfort and warmth as well and tend to settle on bedding. This is why it’s important to wash your bedding regularly. For allergic sleepers, we recommend the Spundown Duvet, a washable duvet that offers both comfort and convenience. Because the duvet is washable at 60°C (the temperature that kills dust mites), this is the absolute best option for allergy sufferers.
Heavy-weight bedding for cocooning
A little bit of extra comfort will never be turned down by anxious sleepers. If you get anxious quickly, this will likely affect your sleep quality as you keep yourself awake worrying or thinking about the big meeting the next day. A ‘tucked-in’ feeling can help with anxiety as it gives a reassuring feeling and helps to trigger your happy hormones. Stop looking, the Goose Feather and Down Duvet is all you’ll ever need. This natural duvet, filled with 85% goose feather and 15% goose down, gives you a luxurious, comfortable feeling. You’ll feel more at peace and fall asleep faster!
