The Best Mattresses for Hot Sleepers

When it comes to sleeping cool, there's no better trick than to turn down the degrees so you can catch more Zzz's. But what if you follow that rule and still wake up in a puddle of sweat? With the high summer temperatures, it can be both difficult and expensive to keep your room cool, but what some people don't know is that sometimes the surface you're sleeping on can contribute to nights of hot sleep.

Although the  ideal temperature for a good night's sleep is 68-72 degrees, our body temperatures drop when we begin to fall asleep. While this may seem like a good thing, the heat your body loses is then reabsorbed by your mattress, sheets and other bedding materials. Some mattresses absorb and trap more body heat than others because of the materials they're made of, but others allow the sleep surface to feel cooler by providing better air circulation and temperature regulation.

If you're in need of a cooler mattress, don't sweat it! We've pulled the best mattresses for hot sleepers to help you cool down and sleep better.
