Perfect Balance Bedding Range Review

When I posted about the symptoms of my M.E here I was contacted by The Fine Bedding Co who suggested that I take a look at their website and in particular the Perfect Balance range that they sell as it could help me get a more restful sleep.

I did take a look and I found that although the items seemed to fit what I was looking for they were very much out of my price range with not working at the moment!

However, they kindly offered me a Perfect Balance duvet and 2 pillows to try out and review. RESULT I thought and was sadly overexcited when the parcel turned up. Delivery was very prompt arriving the next day and the items were packaged well in a huge box.We missed the first delivery and they came back the following day.

Could this mean a perfect night's sleep?

SO here is what they say :

Now I don’t know what you would regard as pricey but this fell into the category for me unfortunately. I’m always very doubtful of whether my money will be well spent or not!

So we gave it a shot and changed all the bedding. Now at first glance the duvet appeared a little thin to me ( normally they are thick and fluffy and need stuffing into the cover) although it had a lovely ‘cool’ to the touch feel about it. The pillows had the same feel but were beautifully soft and did need a bit of stuffing into the pillowcase!!

Both my husband and I had a feeling that the duvet would not be warm enough and so kept our own one close to hand that night. However, we were very much mistaken. The duvet was plenty warm enough but even more surprisingly it did what it said on the packaging!!

With M.E I have no temperature control so about 95% of the time I am freezing but during the night for the other 5% I burn up. This does not bode well for a good night’s sleep. The new Perfect Balance duvet actually seemed to stop me from overheating. I was completely taken by surprise. So I decided that I should wait a week or so before posting a review in case it was a one off. But still I have been more comfortable during the night (temperature wise) although I will always have problems sleeping, at least now burning up is not one of them.

The pillow was perfect for me. I love a huge bouncy soft pillow and these were just that. They too claimed to disperse the body moisture away. Now I have thick, long hair and those of you with long hair can appreciate that we can get a little ‘heated’ at night, more often than not I tie my hair up to stop me getting too hot. But again VERY SURPRISINGLY the pillow did exactly what it said on the packaging. As with the duvet it also had a ‘cool’ to the touch feel which you get a sense of through the pillowcase.

My husband however, did not feel the same about the pillows. He is more comfortable with a firm pillow and so he didn’t find it comfortable and has since gone back to his regular pillow. Although he did mention that he didn’t have to keep turning the pillow for the ‘cool’ side (something he always does with his own!).That means I have a spare new one left for me!!! But he has been really impressed with the duvet and he too agreed that it seemed to stop him from getting uncomfortably hot.

So the question would seem to be

How much would you pay for a more comfortable and restful nights sleep??

Those of you with young children are sleep deprived beyond belief, so the time spent in bed is crucial. Those of you who suffer with M.E like me or another illness or condition that means you can overheat, again time in bed sleeping comfortably is crucial.

So please take a look at their website here finebedding.co.uk
