It's about the time of year when we start to rethink whether our bedding is the best as we ease into summer. If you get hot flashes, night sweats or you just tend to be a hot sleeper, you're probably not looking forward to the warmer weather. As the days gets longer, you'll want to switch to breathable sheets, pillows, mattresses and lightweight comforters that can help you sleep coolly and comfortably.
As you shove your fleece-lined jackets to the back of your closet and give a chance to your dresses and spring sandals the chance to shine, remember that your bedding could also use a seasonal change. And right now there's no shortage of options to help you stay cool while you sleep. The internet is chock full of gel-padded mattress toppers, temperature-controlled pillows and all other kinds of sleep accessories to help you get through summer nights.
In order to help, ET has rounded up all our favorite cooling options for sheets, pillows, mattress, and comforters, so you can enjoy the warmer weather without worrying about being enveloped in your own body heat while you sleep. After all, just because the temperature outside is rising, doesn't mean you don't deserve a good night's rest.
Below, shop the best deals on a wide range of cooling sleep accessories, so you can enjoy your rest without breaking a sweat this summer.
The Casper Hyperlite Sheets are made using a grid weave, which allows the sheets to be really breathable. Whether you're just a hot sleeper or you live in a warmer area, this sheet set will be perfect for the summer months. This set comes with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet and two pillowcases.
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 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).
The Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set made it onto Oprah's Favorite Things list and for good reason. The bamboo viscose fabric gives you an ultra-breathable and moisture-wicking way to catch some sleep. The bamboo sheet set is also resistant to pilling. Plus, Cozy Earth has a 100-night trial on these bamboo sheets, as well as a 10-year warranty.
Built with two cooling gel pads (one on either side of the pillow), this memory foam pillow draws heat away from your head while you sleep. Plus, Tempurpedic is the gold standard in memory foam, so you know it's ultra-comfy, too.
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.
If you're ready for a mega-splurge, the Tempur-Breeze is a no brainer. 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.
The Casper Humidity Fighting Duvet is a quality duvet for anyone who lives in a humid region, as well as sweaty sleepers. Some price tags can be hard to commit to, but thankfully Casper has a 30-night risk-free trial. So, if you don't absolutely love this duvet within 30 nights, you can return it.
This cooling comforter has the same softness as a down comforter, just without all the heavy fabric that locks in heat and moisture. The best part of this lightweight breathable fabric is that there's minimal rustling, so you won't inadvertently wake yourself up from tossing and turning. Currently, you can use an Amazon coupon for 30% off.
This Nestwell comforter set includes a lightweight comforter and two pillow shams, all made with soft satin weaves. Plus, all of the fabric is made from recycled polyester. So, you can rest even easier at night knowing that you're snuggled up with an eco-friendly comforter.
The Saatva All-Year Down Comforter gives you the 3D plushness of a winter down comforter without all the extra weight. The lyocell fill fabric that gives this comforter its cloud-like softness also has moisture-wicking properties. Thus, it won't lock in humidity or your sweat.
The Slumber Cloud Lightweight Comforter uses NASA-approved temperature regulating properties to keep you cool all night long. This lightweight comforter is made from hypoallergenic fabric that's super soft and breathable.
