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.
Whether you are the cause of your bad sleep (snorers and night owls raise your hands here) or your partner is the cause of your sleep deprivation (lovers of the insomniac population we feel ya’), you all need to find some good sleep right now.
Poor sleep is directly linked to poor inter-personal skills – those who wake up feeling tired and grumpy are:
- less patient
- less forgiving
- more likely to suffer from bad moods
- and will find it easier to remember negative ideas and thoughts rather than positive ones.
These changes to your thought patterns and mood will result in a low self-esteem and feelings of helplessness. This makes connecting with people very difficult indeed. This leads to further isolation.
Simply put, you are unlikely to succeed in your current and/or future relationships if you do not get good-enough sleep.

Whilst some choose to sleep in separate bedrooms, others choose a less rigid solution to their sleep differences. Sleeping well in the same bed as your partner is no longer a pie-in-the-sky dream, it is a Sealy reality.
Option 1: Buy one mattress with posture pockets
Imagine a mattress that limits partner disturbance by using individually wrapped springs/pockets to absorb your partner’s tossing and turning. With the Sealy Crown Jewel Posture Pocket both partners get what they need to get a good night’s sleep.
The range consists of different pocket options to cater for heavier sleepers (nested pocket) and lighter sleepers (pocket-on-pocket). However, if you and your partner differ in weight by more than 20kg, then you will need to go with option 2.
Option 2: Buy one king-sized base and two single mattresses
A king-sized base with two single mattresses on top is a great way to avoid having to compromise on comfort. Each partner can choose their ideal mattress without the other partner losing out on the comfort or support that they need to sleep well.
If you need a mattress that allows you to sleep in a position other than ‘flat’ you may want to consider option 3.
Option 3: Buy two single adjustable bases and two single mattresses
The Sealy Adjustable Designer range offers the ultimate in power adjustable beds. Each single base offers endless adjustments so that you and your partner can each find a setting that suits your sleep needs, but still feel like you are sleeping in the same ‘king-sized bed’.
Each single bed base can be transformed to offer any position:
• lying flat
• head up
• feet up
• or any combination of these.
Other comfort adjustments such as zero-gravity or dual massage are also available. Lighting options such as flashlight or indirect lighting allow one partner to read in bed without disturbing the other one’s sleep. Talk about a considerate purchase!
