‘You’re too hot’ might not be a complaint you’d expect to hear too often in the bedroom, but with bedroom temperature being the biggest sleep disruptor, running at a different degree to your partner can be a serious sleep problem. Sleep researchers advocate that there are a number of reasons why partners can have different biological thermostats.
With two people under the duvet, they are both heating the air and if your partner heats the air more than you like it can cause a problem.
Here are a few solutions:
Two in one
A couples quilt has two different fill weights on each side, extra fill for cold bods and less for hot bods.
Use two duvets
Use a cold one and a hot one, that way the microclimate around one person’s body doesn’t influence the microclimate under the other duvet.
You can can get quilts with warmth control. Quilts that are not boxed cassetted, but ring stitched or walled and channelled allows you to move the down vertically and horizontally within the casing, providing warmth flexibility.
If you’re squashed into a double bed, consider a king size that will enable you to move far enough apart to keep your temperature to yourself.
Latex beds that don’t breathe very well make people overheat. Coolmax matress protectors are perfect for reducing heat from latex mattresses. They are designed to wick away heat using the same technology incorporated in high energy sports clothing
Make sure the layer closest to you is breathable and your sheets are made from natural fibres so they can wick away the temperature and sweat. Quality fabrics such as Egyptian Percale cotton is the best material to use if you tend to overheat during the night. Moisture-wicking sheets offer next-level coolness. Percale cotton weave makes for cool, crisp breathable sheets which are perfect for temperature control.
PS. Don’t be fooled by thread count.. the larger the number does not always mean superior sheeting. Look for genuine Egyptian cotton (by way of Eygpt) then ask yourself -Do you like the feel of the fabric? ..simple 🙂
