Ikea has launched the TOG-ether bundle to help couples sleep better. Inspired by the Swedish tradition of using two single duvets rather than one queen sized duvet, the TOG-ether bundle gives each person their own amount of insulation, but at a cost that that can be is less than buying two single duvets.
Whist some feel that this will put an end to any snuggling, others are excited about the prospect of getting a better night’s sleep.
Many who co-sleep report that their sleep is broken-
- when they wake up and realize they are blanket-less
- when their partner wakes them up to reclaim what was their half of the blanket
- when they share a bed with someone with a totally opposing thermostat and wake up freezing and/or over-heating.
Any couple who differ in bedding needs will love this idea that puts an end to the midnight tale of waking up to find you have double the blankets you would like thanks to your sweaty loved one who has dumped their bedding onto you.
Ranked as the ninth happiest country in the world, perhaps the Swedes are onto something and we should all copy their now infamous sleep strategy.
What we do know at Sealy is that good sleep means a great life.
