The Secrets to Finding the Perfect Bedding

by - Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Craving a good night’s sleep? It all starts with the right bedding! There’s nothing worse than climbing into bed and being too hot or too cold, or itching due to low quality fabric. You want a bed that you can completely sink into, that helps you get to sleep within minutes, and that keeps you cozy and warm during the cold winter. Want to know the secrets to finding the perfect bedding? Keep reading to find out.

The Fiber

The fiber that your bedding is made from is extremely important as this will not only affect how it feels, but also how easy it is to look after. There are lots of different options here, with the most common being:

· Cotton: This is an absorbent and breathable material that is able to wick away sweat and moisture much more efficiently than other materials like polyester. There are a variety of different cottons to choose from. Lima cotton, for example, is soft to the touch, while Egyptian cotton is known for being especially hardwearing.

· Linen: Linen is softer than cotton and is a really luxurious material. It is quite expensive, but it is worth it if you really want a good night’s sleep. Linen is also a cooler material than cotton, so ideal for use during the summer months. When looked after correctly, linen sheets can last for years.

· Silk: Silk is somewhat of an acquired taste. It’s a material that is great at keeping people warm, and it’s definitely opulent.

The Thread Count

The thread count states how many threads are in each inch of fabric. The higher the thread count, the better the fabric will feel against your skin, and the higher quality the bedding will be. Normal cotton sheets have a thread count of around 150, while anything over 180 is considered to be good. Most people will find sheets above 200 to be high quality, but if you’re willing to splurge, you can find bedding with a thread count of 1000 or even higher!

Duvet Togs

Most people find it is a good idea to have two duvets – one for use during the summer and autumn, and one for use during the winter and spring. Duvets have a tog count, which is very similar to the thread count of bedding. The higher the tog, the warmer the duvet will keep you.


Of course, you won’t have a good night’s sleep if you don’t have a good pillow to sleep on. The best type of pillow for you will really depend on what type of sleeper you are and whether you have any medical conditions. If you sleep on your back, for example, you can check out the list of the best pillows for back sleepers on Indreviews. Side sleepers will require a different type of pillow, and pregnant women may also want to invest in a bolster pillow.

Finding the perfect bedding isn’t hard once you know how to do it!
