Please help, I am confused blush.

I am at the cusp of buying new duvet/pillow covers and am prepared to spend a bit of money on them.

However, I am so bumboozzled by the sizes: our bed is 2x2m so superking or emporer sized, yes?? But the duvet is 2x2.25m which is what: kind size or superking? We have been using it with our old bed with was a standard king...

And House of Fraser do not give actual sized with their bedlinen just the blasted 'double/king/superking etc. I came v close to just ordering 2 different sized but the thought of having to send stuff back makes me loose the will to live.

It's a superking, but sizes vary 2 x 2 m / 2.15 x 2.15 / 2 x 2.25 etc. etc. TBH you'd be better of buying somewhere else where size is specified, otherwise you may well end up ordering the right size and it still being wrong IYSWIM.

Aaaaaargh - who'd've thought this would be so complicated!?

HoF's Linea 500 thread count is reduced by 70% and I do like a good bargain grin. And I though it was about time to get some 'grown-up' bedlinen and retire -DH's sheets he's had since university.

I've placed an order for my posh sheets and will wait with bated breath what will arrive.
