Summer bedding.

Started 1337376366.073 in For the Home Talk | Last reply 1337921889.913 by jacey1

I live in South Florida and I need a summer weight blanket or maybe even a throw for my queen bed. It's a platform bed....just got it last week so I also don't know if queen size bedding (excluding sheets) would seem oversized on a bed so low to the floor. All my blankets etc. are so hot (the older I get) so I just want something light in case of a chill. Any ideas sure would help.

I use a light weight coverlet and a sheet. I have no centeral air. It does get hot here. No need for a blanket in my opinion unless your house is to cold in the summer.

I just bought a 100% cotton blanket from JCP for the guest bedroom. It's the Royal Velvet Pure Perfection blanket. Oversized and didn't shrink when I washed it so I was pleasantly surprised. Lot of shedding which I expected.

They only had white and off white in my b&m store but the store itself is very small. Other colors online.

It might be a bit heavier than you need but here winter bedding gets a workout as we're still getting frost at night.

I think it was well priced. I was looking at pretty much the same blanket by Ralph Lauren and it's priced at $79.

I also recommend 100% cotton bedding - sheets and blankets or lightweight 100% cotton quilts and coverlets. Macy's has a good selection, and also has a large selection.

The Vermont Country Store has lots of cotton bedspreads in lightweight seersucker and chenille. They are also running a free shipping offer from now until July 26 with a $50.00 or more purchase. Use code: FSPM22 for the free shipping.

I know what you mean. On the very hottest nights, I get overheated, but my shoulders are cold, so I will keep a quilted 100% cotton throw handy that I can easily pull over my shoulders while the warmer parts of my body stay uncovered or covered just by a sheet. In the winter, I use a cotton or linen blanket.

I have just a matelassie (sp) coverlet on my bed and that seems to be all we need here in Florida.It is 100% cotton and very lightweight.

Something I noticed while re-decorating is how much a vintage or handmade quilt is just great for a summer bedding choice in Florida. {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I don't know how you make up your bed. Do you have a bedspread or comforter? You could maybe try a large lightweight throw or a lightweight coverlet. Good luck.

Try some of the new lightweight microfiber sheets, like sleeping on air.

I have a couple of very lightweight microfiber blankets. They are FABULOUS. They fit right into your body however you want them too. I bought them for each of my boys and they are their favorite blankets ever. I use mine in the winter too. Target has some good solid colored ones that aren't too expensive. I'd buy 10 more if I needed that many.
