    Yes, I know... a hot man (or two) in bed. But realistically speaking...

    It's waaay too cold for me in Florida right now. I'm used to walking around the house in boxers (or less) and sleeping nude year round, until this week. I'm FREEZING.

    Other than an electric blanket, what keeps you warm at night? Cotton fleece sweats or yoga pants, something tight like compression shorts or something loose? What works best for you? HELP!

    Limit the air circulation space (if you can't close the bedroom door, hang a curtain in it with a tension rod) and place a small space heater to consume the coldest draft. That and several layers of fluffy blankets. If you sleep under a window, make sure it also has several layers of fabric over it (say, a thick curtain over one or more sheer ones).

    Just make sure the space heater is out of reach of the curtains and blankets.

    Fortunately, I'm *just* far enough north that I have an apartment without any apparent drafts. I can see how in Florida buildings would not be built to keep the occasional chill out.

    I'm a financial planner, so I'm all about saving money with a low thermostat. I have a great comforter on my bed, an extra down comforter and 3 beagles that hang close on the bed all night. I also have a space heater I turn off prior to going to sleep and I turn it on in the morning and a great fireplace here as well.

    A cold night, warm time in my large garden tub and a few steps to the fireplace are awesome... and the bed is close so it all works.

    Bbbuuuuttt you don't understand. It's a different kind of cold down here. Brrrr it's in the 30's here now and might even freeze. I can't wear my flip flops in this horrible weather and had to wear a sweat shirt with my bermuda shorts today. Global warming indeed.

    My bedroom/loft is up in the top of the house. Heat rises. I stoke up the fire before I go to bed with some slow-burning oak and it keeps it toasty enough up there to sleep naked on top of the covers, until about 0200 or 0300, when I can either go downstairs and throw more wood on or pull up a blanket.
    It's about 14° outside.

    Big, soft, cotton track pants and a sweater knitted by my late grandmother. The sweater itself is a bit thin, but it's not the stitch that makes it keep me warm and fuzzy. icon_biggrin.gif

    Myself. I seem to generate heat. In the winter people love cuddling me in bed. In the summer they are constantly pushing me away when I try cuddling.

    I sleep nude year round.

    Ideally, cuddling. icon_biggrin.gif

    Realistically, blankets. icon_cry.gif

    140 pounds of English and Irish Setters and a guy named Alex plus a down comforter. I totally understand you. I sleep naked and this week it got so cold I had to go to Topsiders when out and about because it was too cold for flip flops. Hate that. Warmer today.

    Flannel sheets presently. Also have a nice fleece throw that serves as a blanket.

    Do not wear clothes if you use flannel sheets or you will think you are in a velcro cocoon.

    I have a six pack(both kinds!) and could make you a cheeseburger. Or a nice steak if you'd prefer. There's some king crab in the freezer too. What will that get me?

    Otherwise I'll have to settle for my electric blankie.

    Luckily, I'm usually a human furnace so a blanket is enough for me at night.

    If you're in a pinch, you can set this up and it'll work just fine.
