  • The bedding you wrap yourself up in can make or break your sleeping experience. Whether you’re a hot sleeper or you’re in the dog days of summer, having the right bedding is essential. Here’s what to consider when searching for comforters, sheets, pillowcases, and other types of bedding:

    • Materials: The materials used in bedding have to be breathable for hot sleepers to get quality rest. Some of the best cooling sheet materials include bamboo, cotton, microfiber, Tencel, and linen, while materials you should avoid include flannel, down, and fleece.
    • Thread count: Thread count refers to the number of threads in a square inch of fabric. If you’re looking for bedding for hot sleepers, it’s best to stick to items with a lower thread count, as these fabrics will be more breathable. However, a lower thread count is often associated with lower quality or less comfort. Opting for a mid-range thread count, such as 300-400, can be suitable for hot sleepers.
    • Moisture-wicking: When looking for sheets or a comforter, ensure the one you choose has moisture-wicking properties. This means your bedding will be able to pull moisture away from your body so you can sleep cool and dry.
    • Hypoallergenic: Another key characteristic in bedding for hot sleepers is hypoallergenic properties. Choosing bedding that causes reactions like sneezing, stuffiness, or irritation can make it difficult to sleep. Additionally, non-hypoallergenic bedding can increase your body temperature due to your body fighting allergic reactions. Layla Sleep’s comforters, sheets, mattresses, and pillows are all hypoallergenic, so you can get a good night’s sleep without any adverse health effects.

    To sleep cool at night, having the right bedding is key. At Layla Sleep, our collection of cooling mattresses and bedding can help ensure you get a good night’s sleep and wake up ready to take on the day ahead.

  • Most traditional memory foam mattresses run hot. This is because memory foam can be extremely dense with inadequate airflow, increasing heat retention when you sleep. Once your body starts releasing body heat at night, it can get trapped in the memory foam, causing you to sleep hotter than you would on other mattresses.

    At Layla Sleep, we found a way to combine the comfort of memory foam mattresses with temperature-regulating technologies so you can sleep cool throughout the night. In our memory foam and hybrid mattresses, you’ll find copper-gel particles that transport body heat away from you while you sleep, so you feel cool and refreshed. This way, you’ll benefit from the body contouring properties of memory foam without fear of waking up in pools of sweat in the middle of the night.

  • There are many benefits of sleeping cool at night, such as losing weight and getting more restorative sleep to boost energy levels. With that said, you need a mattress that keeps you the coolest. One of the best cooling mattresses is a memory foam or hybrid mattress that has cooling elements to regulate body temperature, such as copper. Both of Layla’s premier mattresses, the Layla Memory Foam and the Layla Hybrid Mattress, have copper-infused memory foam that redirects body heat away from you while you sleep. The best temperature for sleep is between 60 and 67 degrees, and a copper-infused memory foam mattress can help achieve this.

  • Many sleepers wonder why they get hot when they sleep. There are several factors that can contribute to sleeping hot, such as hormones, environment, medications, illnesses, and bedding. By knowing the causes, you can work on preventing night sweats so you can sleep more comfortably at night. Some tips for keeping your room cool and sleeping cool include:

    • Setting your air conditioner to 60-67 degrees
    • Using an oscillating fan
    • Creating a cross breeze throughout your home
    • Investing in cooling bedding, such as summer bedding
    • Sleeping naked
    • Avoiding exercising before bed and instead exercising earlier in the day
    • Investing in a cooling mattress

    These are some of the ways you can start sleeping cooler at night. At Layla Sleep, we have the mattresses and bedding you need to get a comfortable sleep night after night.
