The husband was hot. Now he’s on the couch. The wife was cold. Now she’s in a cocoon. They fell asleep together as a couple in the same bed but soon after ‘lights out’, differing body temperatures pulled them apart. Mars and Venus are at work again, but instead of a conflict between getting confidently lost or asking for directions, it’s about bedcovers. He’s hot, she’s not, and both of them are losing sleep.
According to a National Sleep Foundation study, 27% of couples resolve sleep issues by bunking separately. A Canadian study has that statistic as high as 34%. Sleep difficulties add billions of dollars to national health care costs every year but very few of us give the issue the attention it deserves.

It’s not working. Is there
an answer beyond separate beds?
There is. It’s a comforter for couples with different body temperatures, and there’s nothing to plug in. It’s more affordable than the four attractive blankets she wants to put on the bed. Made with a high quality down alternative, it’s hypoallergenic, and with a high thread count, it’s unbelievably comfortable. A comforter that is made for couples with different sleeping preferences. The name of the product is the Twovet™ - the duvet for two. One side is heavy, the other light. It allows couples to say goodnight and good morning to each other in the same bed where they both fell asleep. Problem solved. No more arguing at night about being too hot or too cold. Here’s a quick video that explains the product in more detail.
