Buying Guide: Best Mattresses for Hot Sleepers

Bed unmade by someone who just woke up

by Sleep First 3 min read

Just as some people are side sleepers and others are back sleepers, people also differ in how hot or cold they get during the night. There are those of us who snuggle into bed at night with cozy flannel pajamas, a heavy comforter and a fluffy throw blanket. And then there are those of us who find ourselves kicking off even the thinnest of sheets: the hot sleepers. 

We’re at the height of summer, and the hot nights start to get even hotter. Of course, turning down the temperature of your room (the ideal is between 62-68 degrees) and sleeping with breathable bedding is the best practice for keeping it cool at night. But if you’re doing that and still waking up in the middle of the night to kick off your sheets? You’re probably a hot sleeper.

When we fall asleep, our body temperature naturally lowers. As it does, our heat is transferred into our mattress and bedding. Some mattresses absorb and retain a lot of heat, while others are engineered to provide better circulation and temperature control. 

If you're in need of a cooler mattress, look no further. Here are some of the best mattresses to help you stay dry and cool all night long.
