I had been asked earlier, which size duvet I would like for a forthcoming challenge so I knew in advance this time what to expect.
Although I have a double bed, I have always preferred to have a king size duvet so the duvet overhangs the sides of the bed, all my duvet covers are king size and a king size Sealy Select duvet arrived.
It always surprises me how they can squash such a voluminous duvet into such a relatively small space and on unpacking the bag, the duvet appeared to explode into the room. I would never be able to pack it back in there again!
My current duvet was 13 tog and much too warm to use on the hot nights of Summer. Yes, I know they are few and far between but we do have them occasionally. I have tried sleeping with a sheet over me but it doesn’t feel right. I prefer the weight of a duvet over me.
This Sealy duvet which arrived was 10.5 tog and perfect for me to use in the warmer weather and far more preferable than my Winter weight duvet. It had arrived at the perfect time! The hot weather had arrived at last.
I’d forgotten how nice it was to have a new duvet. My old one was quite a few years old and flat. As this Sealy duvet tumbled out of the packaging I realised that I should have bought one earlier!
Through all the warm nights when I might have been tossing and turning trying to get to sleep, I fell alseep instantly. I usually wake at some point in the night and I still did with this new Sealy duvet but I fell back to sleep again on most nights and I’m sure I slept better than with my old Winter duvet.
The Sealy website said the duvet was:
‘Filled With Luxury DuPont™ Serica® Fibres To Leave You Feeling Balanced For A Deeper Sleep@
This challenge had worked. I had certainly achieved a Deeper Sleep and long may it continue.
Now the weather is less warm, I have continued to nestle down under the newness of my Sealy voluminous duvet. I love it!
My old duvet is destined for the bin!
