@Lastpointe you remind me of our trip to Europe and a night in a fancy Zurich hotel. :love: We also stayed in a hotel in Bad Aibling, Germany that used to be a castle. It was pretty amazing. We now use the European method of making our bed. We don't use a top sheet, and instead use the duvet cover instead. Comfy cozy.
Duvets and duvet covers can still get bunched up and tangled or come unzipped/ velcroed so ones feet can get temporarily stuck in the duvet cove me. Even while I sleep alone! Or is it only me who has this problem from time to time? I get so grumpy I feel like divorcing myself when it happens in the middle of the night and the air is cold!

You brought it up in the conversation. So it seemed important to you to discuss it.
A remark was made upthread about couples divorcing due to tangled sheets, so she was simply making the point that even a single person can have to deal with tangled sheets (when using the North American style of making the bed). IOW, pay attention to the context of posts. It makes the meaning much clearer.

Then clarity is not a great thing for those obsessed with emotions ... I have passionate desire to understand our screwed up communications ... primarily due to the imposed lies by people wishing to put something over on us ... thus the underlying perspective ... it is quite alternate to some firm perspectives like cis and trans in the presentation of icons like "X"!

All else is an unknown ... ideally! Thus rev 'd curiosities!

I am sure the north american divorce rate is at least 5% higher because of couples getting tangled up in sheets and fighting over them.
The European style of two comforters must help a lot too. :)

It probably depends on the style of cover. Ours seems okay. I could see how some would cause problems.

I think it's when the duvet itself starts to loose its puffiness. Then, it moves around in the duvet, when I roll over. Back and forth a few times and it starts to bunch and twist, comes undone - next think you know, then end is inside out and my foot's stuck in it.:LOL:

Farts are necessary composites in complex organic chemistry and nomenclature thereof ... some of the Profs. may even contribute to the gas ...

Learn extended stuff about everything ... be godly freed!

Tis a large command which many diminish with saying ... the common people shouldn't know!

Now how much weirder can it get ... virtual unknowns ...

My first experience of a duvet was also in Germany. I stayed with a family there when I was fifteen. Hubby slept under a 'feather bed' at his grandparents' Saskatchewan farm. We bought one for our together life as soon as we could afford it.

I sleep under a duvet, but I get too hot, often, so I have a sheet, and a light cotton blanket as well. Temperature control is essential to me, and my personal thermostat is apparently permanently wonky, so I need options to make it through the night. Also, many feather pillows (at least three, prefer 5, if I'm on my own) are needed to keep my body nicely supported at night.

"Luxury" to me, is moments of total comfort. The right coffee blend, made perfectly. Healthy food treated with care and love. A cotton shirt so old and soft it feels like a caress. A deep bath full of lavender scented epsom salts at the perfect temperature, with a candle and a book. A cat needing cuddles at the exact moment your hands crave the softness of cat fur.

Luxury is sometimes related to money (I do like a nice goose down, a very high thread count), but not always.

I usually just use the duvet cover in the summer, as it gets cooler, a blanket in the duvet cover, if it gets colder the duvet and I also have a feather filled duvet from Germany, which I haven’t used in a long time, as I have the heat on at night.
lkea is a great place to shop for covers and duvets, my newest duvet was just $20.

Cats are like quantum creatures ... they wish to cuddle when most people wish they'd take a stroll in the Allah ... sond bites as Thomas wails!

Then have you seen that group on FB called Sarcasm ... designated to make fun at folk that are determined not to understand satyr? It can bring tears down in a flood of sore bellies from unseen humus ... if into satyr ... keep it dry ... that arid state! English is like that pseudo nominously vacant when approached ... down rites as odds!
