Sleeping hot is extremely common complaint for those of all genders and body shapes. There are a few things that also can exacerbate it such as spicy food, exercising in the evening, and genetics. However, the most common complaint is that your sleeping surface and bedding are contributing to the suffering.
And it isn't any secret, some materials whisk away heat and others trap and insulate heat within. For those that are naturally warm, there is nothing worse than having the wrong materials trapping your hot body.
Not all materials are good for heat, but some are downright awful. Foam is usually the top complaint for trapping heat, but this can radically change if there are gel addatives. Here are some of the top cooling materials:
-Celliant® is a revolutionary material that diffuses body heat with micro-crystals that turn your body heat into infrared light.
- Gel, copper, or graphite infused memory foam diffuses heat way better than memory foam alone.
- Breathable and cool fabric such as viscose can work wonders as well.
Most of the top brands have cooling layers that ensure you're going to sleep less hot. For those that sleep extremely warm, one of the best brands is Bear Mattress. It was designed in mind for athletes that sleep at higher temperatures than the average population. It's whole design has cooling in mind, and coming with a Celliant® cover, the only complaint you'll have is that you may be too cold. Another similar specialty mattress not mentioned below is the Freya Mattress By Brooklyn Bedding. Looking for something higher end? Eight Pod Mattress provides a smart grid that regulates the mattress electronically on the surface layer, and Winkbeds is a great option because they offer a coolControl™ add on base uses fans to cool or heat the mattress to your desired temperature.
