If getting a good night's sleep sounds more like a dream than a reality, you may want to think about changing up your bedding.
Good Housekeeping chief technologist Rachel Rothman visited TODAY to help you navigate the process of updating your bedding. The magazine recently released the Best Bedding 2020 awards, and it covers everything from mattresses to pillows.
Rothman shared the 17 award-winning products that were all approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute, which is a team of engineers, scientists and analysts that have been testing the quality of products since 1900.
Experience a comfortable and calm night with the Sleep Number weighted blanket, available in 15-, 20- and 25-pound options. Whether you're sleeping or lounging, the no-shift diamond stitching is designed to hold the weighted fill in place for even distribution. The soft, removable microfiber cover also comes in gray, navy and cream and is machine washable.
The Good Housekeeping Institute tests silk pillowcases for durability, moisture-wicking properties, smoothness and more. This one had a couple of standout characteristics: It helps you feel cool throughout the night and outperforms silk pillowcases that are double in price.
This sleep mask has a unique design that allows you to open your eyes while wearing it. It effectively blocked light and held up to washing, which made it a top performer when tested by the Good Housekeeping Institute.
Casper was one of the first bed-in-a-box companies and conveniently ships your mattress to your home in a compact package. Designed with four layers of premium foam, this bed is designed with targeted firm zones to support your shoulders and hips.

This Stearns and Foster mattress has a traditional innerspring design and is available in multiple firmness levels. It includes densely-packed coils and has a memory foam topper for added comfort.
These sheets are made with 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton, which means the material is durable and softens with age. They are also shrink- and pill-resistant according to tests run by the Good Housekeeping Institute.
Available in 12 colors and 10 sizes, the Wamsutta PimaCott sheets can work for nearly any bed. They were even DNA tested to ensure their incredible quality, said Rothman.
You can get two of these bestselling pillows for under $25. They have a down-alternative fill and a low profile, which is perfect for stomach sleepers or children.
This jumbo pillow has a dual-layer design, meaning that there is an inner chamber of feathers and an outer section made with down. No matter what kind of sleeper you are, this medium density pillow will leave you feeling supported.
The Original Pillow from Coop Home Goods is the Good Housekeeping Institute winner for standout support. It even comes with extra fill so you can add or remove the memory foam to find a customized firmness level that works for you.
