Make sure you have these:
  1. A fitted and flat sheet works well in tandem. A fitted sheet has gartered corners to make the fit of the covers snug on the mattress. The flat sheet is placed on top of the fitted sheet.
  2. Invest in good quality pillows; get hypoallergenic ones, as much as possible. Make sure that your pillowcase fits well with your pillows.
  3. Cover your bed with a comforter or duvet. "Comforters are good coverings, which may also serve as blankets."
