Though recent weather would suggest otherwise, summer is almost here – and with a heatwave forecasted for next week, many of us will be looking for ways to stay cool and collected during the balmy days and humid nights. And that’s where summer duvets come in.

If you’re looking to avoid hot and restless sleep, dozing with one leg out of the cover just won’t cut it if you’re cocooned by a heavy high tog duvet.

Thinner, lighter and above all, more breathable, a low tog summer duvet is a must. Providing the perfect amount of coverage and comfort without adding too much heat and weight, your future well-rested self will thank you.

In our review of the best summer duvets, we considered the quality, filling, materials, ease of care and of course, how well we slept – whittling it down to 10 of the best. But with some of our favourites costing upwards of £200, it’s not the cheapest investment.

To keep you cool on even the balmiest of nights, we’ve rounded up the best savings to snap up on summer duvets now from market big wigs Simba, Devon Duvet, Dusk and plenty more. Thank us later.

If you’re purchasing one of Simba’s coveted mattresses, you can also enjoy 35 per cent off the sleep brand’s top-rated hybrid duvet. Earning the top spot in our round-up of the best summer duvets, our tester said: “This duvet is made for British summertime because it offers coolness or warmth when you need either for the best of both worlds.”  

The best part of the duvet is the feature that absorbs your body heat on balmy nights and stores it to release when your body temperature drops. “Our tester found they could fast-track the process by flipping over the duvet to provide instant toastiness on a night when the mercury plummeted and they started to feel chilly.”
