Having handsome bedding is essential when it comes to wooing a woman into your lair of lust. And if that’s where you hope to end your date tonight, here’s what you need to know.
Never Buy Black
Women prefer bedding that appeals to their sense of style, says Denise Tan, regional marketing manager of Aussino. If she prefers the minimalistic look, go for muted colours such as grey, navy blue or brown. If she’s more adventurous, go for bolder prints. But never buy black, unless you want to give her lessons in forensics without the CSI UV lights.
Big Boys Use Quilts
If you’re using a blanket, dump it! Because it says you’re trapped in your pre-pubescent years. Upgrade to a quilt instead. Its softness makes it much more cosy for you both to snuggle up to each other. What’s more, get a quilt cover, which you can use to show some individuality. Ralph Lauren, Nautica, Aussino and Calvin Klein Home all make masculine-looking covers that will compliment your sheets well.
Play With Pillows
Depending on how much space you have, use a mixture of pillows: standard-sized, square or decorative ones with coordinated covers. The rule of thumb: Start with the biggest ones at the back. Bolsters, you say? Hey, you’re the one she should be hugging!
Opt For "Fitted" Sheets
To make mattresses more lush, manufacturers are now making them thicker than they used to. And a little rough and tumble on the bed could easily cause the sheets to pop off. To prevent this, buy those that are “fitted” – meaning they come with elastic bands at their edges – so they hug the mattress snugly while the both of you are snugly wrapping your arms around each other.
Cotton - She'll Love It
If it’s the comfort factor you’re after, always go for 100 per cent cotton, says Tan. And make sure it’s labelled on the packaging. If you really want to leave an unforgettable impression, try cotton sateen, which feels like silk against your skin. It may be a little on the pricier side (a set typically costs $200 and up) but her naked body against your sheets will more than make up for it.
Wash Your Sheets (Please)
You don’t want her to find any unsightly stains you (or another woman) may have left behind during your extranocturnal activities, so we recommend washing your sheets every week.
You want to create a cosy and inviting bed, not one that’s elaborately decorated like a boudoir, or where everything is immaculately arranged. Think about it: If she’s seeing your bed for the first time and it’s too pristine, she’ll think you either don’t have more important things in life to care about besides your bed .
You Know What's Cooler Than A 200-Thread Count?
You probably already know the formula: The higher the thread count, the better the quality of the sheets. And although you know most women would have been pleased with a 200 thread count 20 years ago, their tastes have changed, says Tan. “Go for a higher thread count, such as 400 or more, if you want to keep her happy.”
