Duvets, Pillows, Mattress Protectors....Which is right for you?

For overall health and happiness, a good night’s sleep is essential – your duvet and pillow can really make a difference. With our huge range of choice and value, this guide will help you pick what’s right for you and your family.

Your duvet

A duvet’s tog rating tells you how much body heat it traps – higher ratings trap more. Owning lighter summer duvet and heavier winter one will keep your temperature just right, year round. Select your tog rating according to the warmth of your bedroom and how much you ‘feel the cold’.

4.5 tog - Ultra lightweight duvet, perfect for use on hot summer nights
10.5 tog - Medium Weight for All year round Use
12 - 13.5 tog - Ideal for autumn and winter nights

Asda sells duvets in all the standard sizes: Single, Double, King and Super King:

Single W:135 x L: 200cm
Double W:200 x L: 200cm
King W:225 x L: 200cm

Manmade polyester hollow fibre fillings warm by draping the body. Easy care and non allergenic suit busy people and families. Natural duvets, such as goose feather and down, add a touch of luxury. Lighter weight than their manmade equivalent, they allow better transfer of heat, but may be unsuitable for allergy sufferers.

Duvets, Pillows, Mattress Protectors....Which is right for you

Your Pillows

Pillows should be soft enough to conform to your body shape but supportive enough to avoid pressure points. There are 3 levels of firmness, the one you pick depends on how you lie in bed! If it's mostly…

on your side, go firmer
on your front, pick softer to ensure your spine is not bent backwards
on your back, buy medium, to keep the right sleep position

Asda recommends changing your pillows every 2 years, your duvets every 3-4 years and your mattress protectors every 2 years. Every item comes with detailed instructions – simply follow them for years of lasting value.

Your mattress protector

Mattress Protectors add a layer of softness and warmth, keep bedding clean and extend mattress and pillow life. They're easy to wash and non-allergenic too.

Asda sells mattress protectors in all the standard sizes: Single, Double, King and Superking.

Your memory foam

A memory foam topper and pillow moulds to your body, softening as it heats up and eliminating pressure points. This allows the spine's vertebrae to be aligned naturally, reducing back pain.
