OK, my room has 52F only. Why? I have to turned heat down during the night, because I am so hot. One year ago I get Ultimate Extra Warmth Comforter. I think it was made for North Pole. It is so hot, made from high quality silk Goose Down. My pack is cuddling with me, making it even warmer. I sleep like a baby and I am warm all night. I have warm sweater next to my bed, because leaving my bed at AM hours is not that warm. Good thing my house is well isolated, so it takes only 10-15 minutes to bet back to 65-68F. What temperature do you have at your room? Would you sleep in cold room with heavy comforter?

Hi! Pola! It is bone chilling winter in New Delhi (as per the normal standard of Delhi, it is bitter cold) the temperature here is 1.9 degree celisus (minimum). I agree with you untill and unless our room has an optimum temperature...it becomes very difficult to sleep. Either too hot or too cold temperature definitely effects our sleeping. We also use heat convector, now a days, to keep our room warm and comfortable, so we could sleep properly. Have a nice day!

All year round my room is cold, and I wear boxers and don't have anything to go back and forth from my bathroom and my bedroom (which at times really feels like a cupboard) You may think I'm cold but a cold bedroom is accompanied by my cold heart so it's almost like I don't feel a thing, lol.

having a cold heart isn't that bad, it helps if you hurt someone, it helps very well.

Our bedroom is cold. My husband complains about it, but I can't sleep if it's too warm. So, we keep it cool and he uses extra blankets! Simple solution. :)

Wow, I have a down comforter with a flannel cover, and I have it on top of a light weight comforter with flannel sheets but I know the temp in the bedroom has got to be around 60 and I am still cold in microfleece pjs. Now tell me did you get this comforter. I am getting intermittent power surges but would love a nice warm comforter.

I get my comforter in Bed Bath and Beyond. It was post season sale one year ago. It was 60% off plus I get 20% with coupon, not bad... To make story short it cost around $499, no way I would buy it without sale price.... It is mt best comforter ever. I use washable cover on it, I am sure it adds warmth too....

I would not sleep in a cold room. We have the temperature at 68 degrees F. If I had it any colder my husband would not like it. We just have a comforter and a thermal blanket and when I get up during the night, I put on my night gown. I could sleep at a little lower temperature, because I find that I sleep better that way and if it is too warm then I stay awake longer. Besides if the temperature is too high, the thmermostat keeps coming on every ten minutes or so as we have not finished the basement yet.

I would be too hot at 68 in my house. I used to rent an apartment with poor isolation, my place was freezing even when I set it up at 74F.

I sleep in a room that is about sixty degrees Fahrenheit, with flannel sheets and four blankets. 52 would seem cold to me, but I suppose I could get used to it.

My wife and I keep the house as a whole cold even in the winter. We average 55F even during the day. It is just so expensive to heat the house that we wear sweaters and wool socks on our feet to keep warm. I just wish I could shut down part of the house in the winter to save money on oil, but the plumbing layout does not allow for that.

I am with you. My bedroom is on the attic, the warmer part of the house. If I set heat on 50F, attic has about 52-54F. Under my cover is more than hot in any temperature... I am sure it saves a lot of heat. During the day, 62-64F seems to be hot.... I always wear sweater and warm home shoes during the winter.

We don't have a winter season in my country and my room always warm except during the heavy rain day. I am a person who don't really comfort with a cool condition so the warmer room is better for me. I can't stay comfort or sleep nicely in a cool air-cond room even with a thick blanket. I prefer to sleep with some sweat on my body or I will fell not healthy.

I DO sleep in a cold house! I live in the mountains and keep my loft at 60F while I am home and awake, and let the temp drop while sleeping, often to 50F on frigid winter nights. I sleep with just a sheet and a light down "blanket" most nights though I may pull out my thick pure Goose Down comforter on the coldest nights. I like the loft cool and prefer to put on a sweater than stoke the fire too much.

Nah, probably not. I dont like to sleep with much on and I dont like much on me. I like a light blanket with the room kind of warm but I have to have the ceiling fan going or a fan at all times. I have tried that and my nose was real cold and I cant stand for my nose to be real cold. I have to be half naked with the heat on high with a fan going.

wow, that would be awesome to have a blankie like that...we are always cold at night...even with 3 blankets...i think this is because of my window above our bed though...i swear i feel a draft coming through... i love lots of blankets, so i guess i probably would sleep like the way you do...unfortunately the goose down wouldn't work too well in our house...we all have terrible allergies!

New comforters are hypoallergenic, premium goose down is infused with a naturally hypoallergenic plant fiber that traps allergens. http://www.achooallergy.com/hypodown.asp?utm_id=627

I had a landlord once whose mother gave him a lavender satin goose down quilt because she thought he was gay. This really irritated my landlord, so he gave the quilt to me. I love it!!! It is soft and beautiful. But man, it is WARM!!! The temperature has to get down real low for me to be able to use it! Just like you said, I think it was made for the North Pole! I prefer sleeping in a very cool room. When I have a thermostat to control the heat I turn it down to 40 degrees at night, and sometimes even open a window... it's the only way I can use my beautiful quilt!

I have absolutely no idea what the temperature of my bedroom is..we don't have thermostat do-dahs in my apt. building for each room, but it is chillish in my bedroom as I always keep my window open a bit...get kind of claustrophobic if I know every window is closed...LOL. In fact, I'm kind of a cold weather lover to begin with and the cold doesn't bother me that much..I don't even have a comforter, but just a sheet and a very light blanket that I sleep with, plus my two fur babies that keep me warm at night :)
@polachicago (19075)

fur babies are making it much warmer...lol My black cat likes now to be under cover (same as my older dog), so I call her black undercover agent... Not only, under cover or not, they like to be close from my body, so I should say that I have space heathers...lol

At night it gets to be around 62 degrees in the room I sleep. I sleep only with a sheet, but I am still cold. But I am alternately very cold or very hot, and I have decided being very cold suits me better than the heat. I can't even put socks on my feet at night or I'll burn up. It's annoying, but then again, at least I'm sleeping. : )

I prefer colder temperature in my room, but I think not that cold :) A warm comforter won't work for me because when I'm asleep I kick everything away LOL 65F is a fine temperature for me, but unfortunately the temperature control is downstairs in my in laws apartment and they really crank it up. The house is way too warm during winter and everything is so dry. I have to have water with me all the time. It really doesn't work talking to them. So I hust have to bear it grrrrr

Yes. Very much so. WHen I rant in here that I really would like to have my own house I"m not joking LOL But it isn't possible right now. If we sold this house and get our half we would still not make enough to get one for us and due to our financial problems I do not want to have huge mortgage on my back.

I don't know what the exact temperature is in my bedroom at night - not warm enough for me anyway! I can never be too warm in bed, I love being really cosy. Unfortunately my house is quite drafty so it doesn't retain the heat well once the central heating switches off for the night. I'm going to get myself one of those comforters though! Sounds great.

I am sure that one of those comforters can make you warm and cozy...... Watch for best price season....you can get luxury products for less. This is the warmest comforter I ever have in my life... Under my cover is about 85-90F....I am not warm, I am hot at night with 52F in the room....

I can't sleep if I'm hot so my bedroom ALWAYS has to be cold. I don't normally turn up the heat too much and plus electric is so expensive these days. I use a bunch of blankets. I wish I had some fantastic comforter like that though!

I much prefer to sleep in a cool room at night, in fact the colder the better. If it gets much above 50F, I will wake up feeling uncomfortably warm. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I grew up in a house without central heating and whilst the downstairs rooms were always warm, the bedroom were near freezing in the winter. It was always cold getting up in the morning, but at night we had plenty of blankets on the bed.
