What are we all rocking?

Current setup: load of shite that’s all going in the bin when I move.

Future setup: got a latex pillow on order. Got some sheets from Johnny L on the way. Waiting for some classy duvet covers from La Redoute (and also a constellations one don’t @ me). The only missing piece is the duvet. I want something that’s as heavy as possible but also as cool as possible. I don’t know what that combination is.

The dream is to make my own duvet set

Hand-me-downs. Bit knackered, but one of those things I refuse to spend money on until they’re in tatters.

#5

Same as my philosophy towards pants, then.

2 x latex pillows
Sheets are Egyptian cotton, 800 thread count
Duvet is a 2 piece clip together thing, one summer, one thicker… together makes a thick winter one. Can’t remember the tog count… it’s fibre though cos feather ones aren’t very nice for the geese are they :confused: :bird:

I bought an offensively bad Chrimbo set last year. Looking forward to cracking that out.

Latex pillows are shit. Anything memory foam is shit. There’s a reason these things haven’t been at all popular until now, and that’s because manufacturers have exhausted the selling potential of traditional feather/down items and now need to think of something new to artificially hype and sell to mugs.

I like my duvet as light as possible, therefore I am of no use to you in this thread.

I get hot in bed. Humblebrag intended.

#10

Going to rotate my mattress later on

#11

Vacuum it as well, it’s good for the mattress (and your health)

#12

Did you order the la redoute pillow cases too? I forgot to do this last time and then the cases sold out :woman_shrugging:

#13

I’ve got three pillows, of varying thickness, and no matter which combination I use, I still get really stiff* in the morning.

*in the neck, obvs

#14

I did! But my cool constellations one only has square pillow cases so I didn’t order those.

#15

Go latex, my friend.

(ignoring that I’m a shill for the shadowy world of pillow manufacturers)

#16

I too get hot, but I enjoy the weight of the duvet. So all I’m asking for is something dense/thick/heavy but that doesn’t make me too hot.

Get on with it, science!

Load of shite mate, I too am awaiting a move in order to bin it off and start again.

#19

Maybe we could go halfs on a skip?

What would be the equidistant location for it?
