Sleeping with your partners shirt gives you better sleep!
« on: February 16, 2020, 02:56:44 AM »
Sleeping with your romantic partner's T-shirt and smelling their natural scent can stop you tossing and turning in bed and help you get an extra hour's sleep a week, study finds

Scientists conducted experiments in which 155 participants slept with two different T-shirts as pillow cases.

One carried their partner's scent and the other was completely clean and bland.

The shirts had been worn by their romantic partner for a period of 24 hours in order to capture their body scent.

The partners had also been asked to not use deodorant, scented body products, smoke, exercise or eat certain foods, such as spicy dishes to avoid distorting their body odour.

They were then hermetically sealed and frozen to preserve their smell. The other shirt had either been worn by a stranger or was clean.

The participants were asked to sleep with each T-shirt over their pillow for two consecutive nights without knowing which was which.

Their sleep quality was measured using an actigraphy sleep watch, which detects movement throughout the night.

The data from the watch revealed participant's with their partner's smell next to them had a more peaceful sleep and did not toss and turn as much. 

The next morning, participants were asked to fill in a survey saying how well rested they felt.

People who slept with their partner's smell had, on average, nine minutes more sleep a night despite their partner not even being present.   

Over the course of a week, this adds up to more than one hour of extra rest.   

Study author Marlise Hofer, at the University of British Columbia, in Canada, said: 'Our findings provide new evidence that merely sleeping with a partner's scent improves sleep efficiency.

'Our participants had an average sleep efficiency improvement of more than two per cent.'

She added: 'We saw an effect similar in size to what has been reported from taking oral melatonin supplements - often used as a sleep aid.'

To prevent your boobs bounching everywhere and catch your possible fart stains, if lingerie means bras and grannypants. Actually all health articles says women should sleep without bras but I have to wear them as my boobs are so big. Depending of climate what you need at nights. Could be something warm or something light but soft and comfy.
