This months Sealy challenge came as no surprise but still managed to be the most exciting to date.
I was asked beforehand which size duvet I preferred to use. This meant that when I saw a tightly wrapped package on my doorstep I instantly knew that my big bundle of goodness had arrived.
I asked for a double. My intention? I was wanting to swap it with the cheap Argos version that currently lays across my uni bed. However, for the purpose of writing the article, I’ve draped it over my single at home. I must say, I’m loving it.
I’ve heard many people say that they buy their duvet the size bigger than their bed. I’ve always thought they were crazy! Until now! By buying bigger, the bed instantly becomes cosier, especially for those who enjoy to cocoon as much as I do.
I was sent a ‘balance DUVET’ in a 10.5 tog. (For those not into all this bed lingo, that means it’s roughly medium warmth and so ideal for autumn/spring). My first thought when I removed it from the packet was how incredibly soft it was. Although this may not matter too much when it’s inside the duvet cover, it creates a great first impression of the product. It’s always the little things that are the most memorable.
The duvet is lightweight; you feel cosy without being weighed down. It’s also a great idea sending the 10.5 tog. With the weather being so unpredictable, it’s nice not to worry about changing your duvet thickness to match the season. I mean, who has the time?! During the heatwave, I was perfectly comfortable simply sticking my foot out of the duvet and the week after I curled right in.
There is nothing worse than waking up in a sweat. With this duvet, I awake feeling relaxed and comfortable almost every night. My old duvet is definitely going in the bin! (And by bin I mean I will probably donate it to my local animal shelter, waste not want not). The only challenge now is trying to squeeze the new duvet back into the packet so I can carry it back up to Leeds. It will always surprise me how companies manage to squeeze huge products into the smallest of packets. Wish me luck!
