Summer is the time when we start thinking about our bedding choices. If you get hot flashes, night sweats or you just tend to be a hot sleeper, you're probably not the biggest fan of summer nights but there is a solution for you. Now, you can sleep comfortably and coolly by switching to breathable sheets, pillows and mattresses.
There's no shortage of options to help you stay sweat-free in your sleep this summer. Your bedroom is one of your comfort spaces and there's nothing like adding linen sheets to your bed and investing in a mattress that detects your body temperature. From temperature-controlled pillows to cooling technologies and moisture-wicking fabrics, there are breathable finds from Pottery Barn, Casper, Tempur-Pedic, Buffy and more to keep you from waking up at 3 a.m., drenched in sweat.
Below, shop our favorite cooling sheets, pillows, comforters and mattresses, designed to keep your temperature regulated for a perfect night of sleep.

This cooling sheet set is made from a trifecta of breathable fabric: linen, bamboo and cotton. These sheets also have moisture-wicking properties, so if you have night sweats these sheets will help combat that. Thanks to the 16-inch deep pockets on the fitted sheet, this sheet set can be a great fit for extra deep memory foam mattresses (or regular mattresses with a plush mattress topper).
Buffy's Eucalyptus Sheet Set is naturally dyed, hypoallergenic and plant-based (it's made from eucalyptus). But let's get to the details: This sheet set includes a top sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases, which are all cool to the touch and lightweight. That makes falling asleep in the warmer months a lot easier.

This cooling mattress is Amazon's most-popular choice, and with good reason. The mattress's ventilated memory foam is infused with cooling gel particles, so your temperature stays regulated no matter how hot you sleep.

According to Tempur-Pedic's website, the luxury mattress is designed in a thermal laboratory to scientifically manage the micro-climate between the mattress and your covers. They're so confident you'll sleep cooler and better, that they have a 90-day guarantee — no questions asked.
