Dear Diva Readers,

It goes to reason that a diva is drawn to their own kind, so I fear it was inevitable I ended up with someone who has equally impressive champagne tastes. My husband is particular. He is very particular. You might just say he is picky. And the quality of the linens we buy matters more to him than virtually any other decision we make in our household décor.
Over the years my husband has driven me to the brink of insanity in the bedroom. For 15 years of marriage he has disliked our sheets, duvets, bedroom linens. I tend to be a form over function kind of girl and have always bought first for look and style. To me, the sheets and duvet covers I’ve bought were comfortable enough – I was buying high thread counts and they felt fine. To my husband they were torture in the bedroom. My husband has growled, complained and nagged about everything from the weight of the duvet being too heavy to the texture of the sheets being too scratchy to a bedspread feeling sticky because it was too silky. We’ve changed our bedroom décor nearly twice annually as I tried to satisfy his particular tastes!
A couple of years ago I discovered a brand that has changed my marriage!! I discovered Belvivere! My husband feels so passionately about their luxury Italian linens that he actually wrote CEO Jay C Conti a testimonial to be included on the Belvivere website. My husband wrote…
“Okay, I admit it. I am a guy who likes good quality sheets. Over the years my wife has brought home set after set of sheets only to have me frown as I crawled into bed. No matter how much she spent or where she shopped, they never passed my comfort test. They were either too itchy, too stiff or too silky. My wife says she married ‘the princess and the pea’. Discovering Belvivere changed all that and sliding under their cotton sateen 700 thread count sheets transformed my bedtime ritual into a daily luxury. My search for the perfect sheet is over. Thank you Belvivere!”
If you’re married to “The Princess and The Pea”, I’ve got a tip that’s guaranteed to save your marriage. Buy Belvivere! And remember – Diva’s only sleep with Belvivere!
