Forget everything you’ve been told about how to be good in bed.
What rookie casanovas don’t know is that being good in bed is all about what’s happening under the quilt cover. And I mean the products you choose to sleep on, of course (because I’m not equipped to help you in areas outside of decor!).
There are a few essentials you need to create a comfy and cosy cocoon to escape to at night. And I’m going to show you what they are in today’s post.
How to be Good in Bed: It’s all about Layering!
I recently styled a few bedrooms for my friends at Lorraine Lea and got to play with their bed layering system first-hand.
Four layers on your mattress sounds a bit excessive, I know. I thought the same. But after the shoot wrapped and I laid down on my mattress, everything changed.
It was as if Cupid himself had come down from the heavens with a hand-selected cloud, covered it in feathers, and rolled it out for me to curl up on.
My partner was equally impressed. Days later, I got my very own bed layering system gifted to me from Lorraine Lea and now sleep on it every night. Pure. Unadulterated. Bliss.
Lemme tell you why.
The Mattress Topper is the First Essential
I’ve seen those commercials on TV about dust mites and good Lord do they look like evil little creatures. The great thing about the Greenfirst Mattress Topper is that it repels dust mites. It does this using lemon, lavender and eucalyptus essential oil extracts, which sounds altogether glorious.
The mattress topper is also super soft. So if you need to add some cushiness to your mattress, this is the one.
On Top of that… the Quilted Protector
So the Mattress Topper is like the super hero who fights off all the evil dust mites (I don’t watch superhero movies so the analogy is weak, I realise). Think of the Quilted Protector as the softer sidekick who protects the bed.
The Quilted Protector is waterproof and comes with a polyurethane coating. It’s so plush and soft, and further adds to the ‘Cloud 9’ feeling I was telling you about above.
Then comes the Wool Underlay
I cannot tell you how glorious the Wool Underlay component is. Well, actually, I can. It’s awesome.
Because it’s made from wool, the Underlay keeps your body temperature regulated so you don’t freeze in winter or sweat like a pig in summer. It’s so textural to touch because it’s packed with 570gsm Australian wool pile.
Lastly, your Fitted Sheet
Like I said above, I know it sounds excessive to have four layers on your mattress before you get onto it. But seriously, it’s not. Not when you lay down and realise how soft and cosy your mattress has become. And not when you realise the dust-mite fighting qualities this system has.
I’ve had this system on the bed for a few months now (going from summer to autumn) and it’s been outstanding. I highly recommend it.
