I don’t care what type of sleeper you are—side sleeper, stomach sleeper, take-up-the-whole-bed sleeper, or something in between—we can all agree that night sweats are the worst. Summer heat only adds to the drama, making it almost impossible to get a good night’s sleep without taking some much-needed steps to stay cool. Enter: cooling bedding, the MVP of summer nights. Cooling bed sheets, duvet covers, pillows, and more are the magic solutions to our warm night woes, and for that, we are thankful.

Whether you are looking to upgrade your bedding for summer or you’re a hot sleeper year-round and need something to get you through the night without sweating, investing in cooling bedding is the way to go. Add these to your cart, and just thank us later.

 

Cooling Sheet Sets

If you were only going to invest in one thing for warmer nights, a high-quality cooling sheet set would be the way to go. They make up the majority of your bedding (most sheet sets include two pillowcases, a fitted sheet, and a flat sheet), so they make the biggest difference when it comes to comfortability. Choose percale, which is naturally cooling, a lightweight fabric like bamboo or eucalyptus, or a cotton fabric with cooling technology.

Comforters & Duvets

Comforters and duvets are usually the first things we toss off or stick our legs out of in the middle of the night when we start sweating, but they aren’t all heavy and warm. Lightweight and breathable comforters and duvets are essential for releasing excess heat instead of trapping it underneath the covers.

Quilts & Blankets

There aren’t many things more aesthetically pleasing than a perfectly layered bed, but the idea of layering in the summer single-handedly makes me overheat. Luckily, there are lightweight, breathable quilts and blankets that can help us achieve that magazine-styled-bed look even during the summer months.

Cooling Pillows

Going through too much dry shampoo because your hair is getting all sweaty and greasy at night? Frustrated that you don’t actually have a cool side of the pillow? I feel you. I have good news though: You can wave goodbye to those days by getting yourself a pillow with cooling technology.

Mattress Pads & Toppers

If you’ve tried every type of bedding and pillow to cool down at night and you’re still not comfortable, what do you do? Start with the foundation and invest in a mattress pad or topper that has temperature-regulating or cooling technology. Not only will upgrading one of these options make your bed more comfortable, but they can also prevent you from overheating since they help take away any excess heat that comes from your body.
