My name is Jillian and I’m a blanket hog. There’s nothing better to me than wrapping myself so tightly in a blanket that I feel like a well-constructed burrito. The problem with this habit is that when you share a bed, you have to share the blanket, which means no burrito-ing.
Queen-sized beds get queen-sized mattresses. It makes sense, you say. They’re even labeled the same! But therein lies the rub. When you’re sleeping next to someone, your blanket real estate is halved. The solution, my dear friend, is a simple one: buy a king-sized comforter. Seriously, it’s that easy. After spending months apologizing in the morning for stealing the warmth, this small change made a huge difference.
You may be thinking that it’ll be way too big and end up looking weird, but king-sized comforters are actually the same exact length as a queen, but with about 14 inches added on width-wise. That means you each get an extra 7 inches of a burrito-worthy blanket to clutch in your sleepy death grip and refuse to concede to your partner. It’s a small but influential change that I promise will help with the blanket hogs out there. It won’t stop them from stealing, but it’ll at least satiate their desire to hoard bedding.
