If, like me, you have trouble sleeping you want to do everything you can to maximise your comfort especially your temperature in bed. I am always too hot – or too cold. A proper Goldilocks! So I was interested to hear about Simba products which use Simbatex® foam. This is an "open cell" foam, which allows 30 times the airflow of memory foam. On top of that Simba's sleep scientists have infused it with a naturally occurring mineral called graphite; this draws heat away from your body.
Simba discuss this in their article: The Role of Temperature in Sleep Quality: How to Find Your Ideal Sleep Climate
I was sent the Hybrid Pillow [£109] to try and I was looking forward to ditching what I was using. This pillow has an adjustable, supportive inner core of tiny foam Nanocubes® and an outer sleeve of soft, cushioning Simba Renew Bio with a pure cotton cover imbued with the cooling Stratos® technology.
Softer or firmer, higher or lower? The Hybrid® Pillow can do it all, thanks to an adjustable, supportive inner core of our tiny foam Nanocubes®, and an outer sleeve of soft, cushioning Simba Renew Bio™. It comes with a pure cotton cover with cooling Stratos® technology for optimal heat control. There's also a bag for you to store any Nanocubes® you are not using. Harriet was intrigued by the cubs and had to have one!
I have enjoyed using the pillow – no more turning a pillow in the night to have a cooler side – feeling comfortable with it at its firmest. My sleep quality has been better but I think I may need to invest in one of their duvets for a cooler night.
Simba has designed a range of bedding including:
The Performance Bed Linen [£90] comes in a crisp, and naturally breathable, 100 per cent cotton 200 thread count. It is finished with the unique Stratos® technology to help dissipate body heat, of pets and humans alike.
The new Cooling Body Pillow (£109) is made specifically for side sleepers and is an elongated, versatile, and state-of-the-art sleep companion. Offering unrivalled comfort, hip and spinal alignment and reduced pressure on your shoulders and hips,
Simba's Cooling Body Pillow is a must-have for lateral resters or those in need of extra support, such as during pregnancy. (Similarly, this versatile pillow will provide support for nursing babies or additional back support when you’re sitting up).
All of these plus mattresses and duvets are available from Simba which currently has an up to 55 percent off sale.
