From how to choose a pillow and the best mattress protector to the age-old question of what is the best type of duvet to buy, our bedding buying guide will answer all these questions and more, helping you buy bedding online, fuss-free.

HOW TO CHOOSE
A PILLOW

The first question you may ask yourself when working out how to choose a pillow is which support is right? Our pillows come in soft, medium and firm, with your choice depending on your preferred sleeping position. This will help keep your spine properly aligned to relieve pressure and prevent aches and pains, leading to a great night’s sleep.

HOW TO CHOOSE
A DUVET

After pillows the next problem you need to solve is the answer to what is the best type of duvet to buy? For help with how to choose a duvet, it’s worth looking at our duvet buying guide.

First you’ll need to look at tog rating, which is explained below in our duvet weight guide. Put simply, the higher the tog rating the warmer the duvet, so it’s important to consider the season, the temperature of your bedroom and how warm you like to be when you choose a duvet.

THE BEST MATTRESS PROTECTOR
AND
TOPPER COVERS

When looking at how to choose bedding it’s worth considering what the best mattress protector and topper cover is. A mattress protector is an item of removable bedding that preserves the quality and extends the life of your mattress. It sits above your mattress and acts as a simple barrier against wear and spills and can offer relief from allergens. A topper cover, or mattress topper, provides support and can help soothe aches and pains.

TOPPERS PROTECTORS
Add comfort and luxury to your bed Protect your mattress against wear and tear, spills and stains
Hope to prolong the life of your mattress Available finishes including anti-allergy & waterproof
Washable Easy to remove and wash in your machine at home

To find the best mattress protector or topper cover, you’ll first need to decide what you’re using it for.

If you want to avoid wear and spills, choose a mattress protector or waterproof protector to add a comfortable protective layer to your bed.

If you want to avoid allergens, choose a non-allergenic mattress protector, which is specially treated to provide additional protection against irritants such as dust mites, bed bugs, mould and dead skin.

If you want extra support and comfort, choose a memory foam mattress topper (or topper cover) for a luxuriously thick extra layer that provides extra body support and renews older mattresses. You can choose from either a 2.5cm or 5cm thick mattress topper. You can also try a dual layer mattress topper, which is designed to rejuvenate the comfort of your mattress.

The final key to finding the best mattress protector is deciding on filling.
