Night sweats can be a cause for frustration and concern, not to mention loss of good quality sleep. Nothing quite interrupts your peaceful slumber like being overcome with profuse sweating and damp sheets.
Sweating during the night is normal and very common. Did you know that 75% of women in menopause suffer from night sweats? Nonetheless, if you find yourself regularly waking up during the night with soaking wet sheets, make sure to consult your GP as it can be a sign of anxiety, infections or medicine side effects.
However, if you find you suffer from hyperhidrosis, a harmless condition that causes excess sweating, or you are simply a warm sleeper then we might have just the solution you have been looking for. Keep reading as we help you find the best duvet for night sweats to ease your discomfort and help you wake up feeling cool and well rested.
Best Duvet for Night Sweats
Did you know that a sleeping environment that is too warm is one of the main inhibitors of quality sleep?
If you are suffering from night sweats, the solution to your sticky nights could be as simple as switching up your duvet Tog. The Tog of your duvet doesn’t refer to its thickness, but actually the effectiveness of the thermal insulation. So even if you have a relatively light duvet, don’t be deceived, it could be a more insulating winter Tog and warmer than you might think. An easy switch would be swapping out your duvet for a cooler alternative, between 4.5 Tog and 7 Tog.

If your current duvet has a low quality synthetic filling, this could be the root cause of your sweaty mid-night wake up calls. Try opting for a natural filling such as our Goose Feather & Down instead. Encased in 100% pure cotton, and with a luxurious natural feather and down filling, you will still experience that fluffy, tucked-in feeling, whilst still benefiting from the duvet's natural thermal and breathable properties.
Alternatively, if you want to stick to lighter weight and washable synthetic filled duvet then opt for a breathable and superior filling. Our Breathe Duvet is packed with clever technology to allow for climate control and a temperature regulated sleep. This extra special duvet is one of the best fibre filled synthetic duvets for night sweats because it blends our Smartfil® technology with a special ingredient called Modal. Modal is derived from natural wood pulp, making it exceptionally breathable compared to regular synthetic fillings. This unique blend will wick away moisture from your body, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and cool, and keeping night sweats at bay.
Temperature Regulating Bedding
Here at the Fine Bedding Company we believe better quality bedding results in better quality sleep, which is why we are always on the hunt for the latest technologies out there to solve the nation's sleeping problems. With night sweats affecting so many of us at some point in our lives, we have newly launched a Smart Temperature Range, including our revolutionary Smart Temperature Pillow.
Created with Activated Cooling™ technology from Swiss textile innovators HeiQ®, this pillow will deliver continuous and instant cooling, the perfect pair for your duvet. This intelligent thermoregulation system works by activating a cooling effect when it senses a rise in your body temperature, and will deactivate when your body temperature cools down. This will ward off unwanted overheating, whilst preventing you from feeling a chill. Pretty smart for a pillow, huh?
