Again, just to be clear; I'm planning on trying to fix this from the mattress/sheets/pillow up as you guys may recall from my last post, but just in case..
What's a good not too expensive comforter or blanket for someone having night sweats or is just a hot sleeper? Like to keep it to 100 bucks or less, and I live in GA/east of Atlanta. I'll hate to see that walmart special I got for the dorm go but if I have to fix that before I get my sleep study to find out if I got sleep apnea, I have to. (Seriously, it's had a good run. 15+ years without the stuffing clumping up or it ripping up is a good run!)
Oh and no dry clean only. It has to be washable, even if I have to go to a laundromat for a oversized washer. Seriously, dry cleaning is a expense I'd rather not pay.
Have a cotton blanket right now but was having trouble last night (Well, new year's so I guess can't say much?) but hoping that relief money gets here soon so I can start my plans and quit having trouble. I am kinda planning on layering if necessary to get that Goldilocks feel that I really really want here.
I can't exactly blow a whole lot of money, but I am willing to pay a teensy bit more. I'd prefer something pastel goth, but almost anything would work at this point.
I recieved some nice dark furniture from a friend who was rooming at the place im at now.
Recently nmom cut up my favorite comforter. In short form, the story almost has the effect of, "Oh haha, guess what wacky thing she did this time. My favorite blanket is just an unfortunate but otherwise insignificant casualty." But that isn't at all how I feel.
She had all my stuff in her house but wouldn't let me in since February due to her fears of Covid. My husband and I have strictly quarantined since lockdown, but no dice.
Recently husband has been really wanting to move out of the area and the comforter was the one thing I really wanted to retrieve to bring with us. Not even my brand-new and yet-unused wedding dress, just that comforter.
So imagine my dismay that before I even get a chance to ask to retrieve it, my mother announces proudly to me that she had already found it... and cut it into small pieces for my baby.
"What..?! I need that blanket to sleep under once we move and was just about to ask you for it. Please sew it back to the way it was. Besides, babies can't use comforters, it's a suffocation hazard."
She refuses and tries to pivot. "It's already cut to pieces! And I've carefully hand-stitched it back up so it's much much thicker. You'll love it, just try it. You can use it too."
"THE ENTIRE POINT OF THAT COMFORTER is that it is light and thin!! It is a SUMMER comforter. And did you not hear me JUST say that it is a suffocation hazard for an infant..?? Also how the heck can I use it myself if it is baby sized..?!"
Now she REALLY tries to pivot.
"It's not even your blanket, it's one of mine."
"But you've never owned anything like that.“ I remembered back to when I first got it. I had spotted it in my cousin’s house and became childishly fixated on it. It had been a gift to her, but she very kindly regifted to me after noticing how much I seemed to like it. At the time, my mother chided me for accepting it, saying something along the lines of it being a worthless product because of how thin it was, and how she could easily get me something much better. But I didn’t want something “better”. I wanted that exact product and was thrilled to be holding it in my hands. “You wouldn't have bought a thin blanket like that. This has to be the one my cousin gave me, " I said.
"No, it's mine, it had my cover on it."
"Right, you GAVE me the cover for it because you said you had extra when I moved out. You insisted. What else would it have had on it?! I'm not gonna use it without a cover."
"Well it's definitely not yours, yours is som... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi, I hope my question is suitable here.
I am in desperate need of a comforter that is light and cool. In every hotel I've ever visited, the comforters and sheets have been actually cool to the touch, and stayed that way when I was sleeping. The comforters never felt heavy, but didn't feel like I was sleeping with sheet.
I would really appreciate any tips on what I should get to replicate that. I can't spend a lot of money, no more than $100, and that's the absolute maximum. Thank you so much!
I grew up using a comforter as a blanket and now my girlfriend is telling me that it’s not normal. We are now shopping for a new bed set and there is one we really like with a nice comforter and she is telling me we can’t use it as a blanket. What’s the big deal?? She says it for decoration but she also keeps the house so cold so a normal blanket isn’t even enough. What do you guys think?
Long time lurker, first time poster. I went through roughly the past year of posts on comforters, but couldn't find any advice suited for hotter climates, like south Texas, so I figured I'd make a post. Main issue is deciding between down or wool; a brief experience borrowing a down comforter was unpleasantly sweaty and awful, so I'd rather not go with this if there are other options, but while I'm glad to invest the extra cash for a wool comforter, I'm not sure it would be best for the hotter weather (it rarely gets below 60°F where I live, and I have a quilt to layer on the rare days it gets cold enough.)
Any advice or suggestions welcome.
The Comforter by Lush is THE BEST THING i have ever had the pleasure to smell. infact i don't know if im even worthy of smelling something so good. plus it's represented in it's hot pink glory which makes it extra beautiful I can't explain
the problem is its DISCONTINUED in it's shower gel form and im so upset guys. i always fall in love with the scents i can never get a hold of again. first yuzu and coconut, now this?! i don't have a bath at home, only a walk in shower so i can't use the bath bomb version. i considered maybe crushing it up into some type of body scrub but figured that would do all the wrong things for my skin lmao. so whilst tears run down my face in the shower tonight as i use the last few drops of my comforter shower gel please keep me in ur thoughts
I'm looking for a quality down-alternative comforter or duvet insert. (I have allergies hence down-alternative)
Ignoring the cheap ones that go for $30-60 on Amazon, it seems like there are 3 prominent brands on the internet. Would like to buy one during black friday sales. Any opinions on which is the best? Looking for king size comforter that provides warmth, but doesn't get too sweaty for Seattle nights. We keep the room temp around 69 degrees at night, and a bit higher in the summer.
That’s it. It’s really quite simple but it makes me happy. There’s just this feeling they have to them when they’re clean- or maybe it’s me? What simple thing makes you happy?
