If you constantly wake up hot, sweaty, and uncomfortable, your mattress may be trapping in heat. But buying a new mattress is easier said than done, since they can cost a pretty penny. A more affordable solution—buy a cooling mattress topper.
See some of the best cooling mattress toppers below:
“Most individuals benefit from a cooler sleeping [body] temperature," says Christopher Winter, MD, a doctor at the Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine and author of the book The Sleep Solution. "So, by adding a cooling mattress topper to your bed, you can create a more positive environment for sleep." After all, the key to a good night’s sleep is regulating your body temperature, and the right topper can help you stay cool by promoting air flow or wicking away moisture.
When shopping for a cooling mattress, you should go with materials that promote air circulation, like bamboo, memory foam with cooling features, or gel toppers (more on that later!). Then, consider if the topper's thickness is comfy enough for you.
