George at Asda bedding review

beddingShopping online to organise a grocery delivery has become relatively commonplace, the ease and convenience mean it’s an option preferred by many. But, had you ever thought of visiting your favourite supermarket online to shop for home wares? Asda has launched a brand new George at Home range which allows quick and easy delivery of items from bedding to furniture, all ordered from the comfort of your own home. This gives you the convenience of internet shopping with the added value of a supermarket brand. However not all items are created equal and today I’m sharing my George at Asda bedding review.logo_george

I’ve always been an advocate of good quality bedding. It’s estimated that we spend around a third of our entire lives in bed, so comfort and relaxation have to be of paramount importance. Therefore a value range of bedding at first seems to fly in the face of such a belief and I was respectfully sceptical that George’s reasonably priced bedding couldn’t ever compete with their more expensive counterparts.


George Home Potting Shed Birds Duvet Set in Single – £10

I absolutely adore the style of this duvet set, the print is gorgeous and the colour perfect. I prewashed it then placed it onto my daughters bed who was in love the moment she saw it!


George Home Lemongrass Fitted Sheet in Single – £5

I teamed the potting shed birds set with this single sheet, they look fabulous together! I was also very impressed by the depth of this fitted sheet, sheets pinging off the mattress are the bane of my life but this sheet has a really good depth to it.


George Home Vintage Patchwork Throw – £20

Bed throws can be notoriously expensive but this throw is a beautiful design for an extremely good price.


George Home London Tube Map Duvet Set in King Size – £18

I loved the design of this duvet set, it’s funky and fresh and looks decidedly more expensive than its selling price.


George Home Parisian Postcard Duvet Set in King Size

This set is definitely my kind of style, the wonderful quirky postcard design and feminine colours scream relaxation and sleep.



All three sets and sheet washed amazing well. After their second wash the postcard set did feel a little rougher to the touch but this seemed to dissipate after it had been slept on for a night. All the colours have stayed vibrant and no runs have occurred. All in all I am thoroughly impressed.


Again all three duvet sets and the sheet performed equally and everyone who has slept upon these beds has slept soundly and comfortably. There has been no compromise in comfort. As mentioned in the washing section the postcard set did feel a little rougher after the second wash but this settled within a night.


The value of these sets, considering their washing and comfort credentials is amazing! I will definitely be buying more sets from George at Asda as and when I need them. They are also proving incredibly popular as several sets already appear to be sold out.

Would I recommend the bedding ranges at George at Asda?

I have and I will. I’m already planning on buying several more bits for myself which I think says it all really. The quality and value is amazing.

The Best Bed Linen In The World Review

Apparently if you live to be 80 years old, you’ll spend something like 20 of those years asleep! That’s a huge proportion of our time that we spend in bed and yet we probably don’t apportion the same amount of outlay to bedding as we do to our clothes or shoes. But when so many of us suffer from sensitive skin or allergies it really ought to be one of our top priorities when it comes to designing our bedrooms.

I’ve always loved staying at top hotels (who doesn’t) and a big part of the luxury is a wonderfully comfortable bed covered in supersoft, super comfortable bedding. What if you could recreate this hotel luxury at home, every day and more importantly every night! With this in mind I have recently discovered the wonderful webstore The Best Bed Linen In The World. Already suppliers to several top hotels they now offer their luxury bedlinen to the general public.

I had the good fortune to test out two pillows from their Bed Linen Separates Collection recently. On the website there is an FAQ section that offers a wealth of information relevant to bedding and cotton. Much of this goes to dispel myths or beliefs about what constitutes luxury both in term of cotton production and thread count. I like to think I know a thing or two about cotton, but it still offered new information to myself.

I started by examining the pillowcases themselves, I received a Plain White Oxford and a Satin Stripe Oxford Pillowcase. They were well constructed, with properly finished and deep seams. I saw no stray threads or mediocre sewing.

I washed them both, both had minimal shrinkage at 40C, which I was expecting. After one wash they did feel a little more coarse to the touch, but a subsequent wash saw their original softness return. Aesthetically they look very classy, my personal favourite was the Satin Stripe Design.

The real test of course was to sleep on them, for no profound reason I preferred the Plain White Pillowcase, it seemed slightly softer overall. The quality of the cotton meant I didn’t overheat and they retained their shape. I also have very sensitive skin and found that neither irritated or annoyed.

Would I recommend this product?

Yes, at £11 a pillowcase (more for Duvets etc) they are pricey, but not so far above high street stores as to make them unaffordable. I also think the quality is reflected in the price, you get the luxury you would expect.

Could they be improved in anyway?

Other than more products appearing in their ranges or perhaps special offers not really.
