As the weather starts to heat up, it’s important to have the right duvet to see you through the summer months. Changing your duvet to a lighter tog rating can mean the difference between uncomfortably tossing and turning all night and sleeping through and waking fully rested having slept like a baby.

When it comes to tog ratings, anything under 7.5 is generally considered to be suitable for the warmer nights, however, a tog between 3 and 4.5 tends to be favoured in the height of summer.

When considering changing your duvet for the summer, there are other factors to consider out with choosing the correct tog, such as the material the duvet is made from, especially if you suffer from allergies. And let’s not forget your budget, especially as duvets have a massive price range.

We have put together a list to help you make your decision.
