Help for hot Sleepers – get the Right Pillow

Sleeping cool - custom mattress manufacturer San DiegoIn the sunny Golden State, we’re probably all hot sleepers. What’s out there that can help you stay cool as a cucumber and get your Zzzzs as you should? Well, the first thing to check is your pillow. Does it ease your problem or exacerbate it? Considering that your favorite custom mattress manufacturer in San Diego, (wink wink), is now offering premium custom pillows, we have not only expanded our offer but also our knowledge of the best sleeping products.

Why do they get hot in the first place?

The heart of the problem is lack of breathability. Sometimes it’s the nature of the material itself that is not very breathable and is often the type of pillow. For example, a memory foam pillow, which is great for support, is very thick and doesn’t allow for much ventilation. That is, if we are talking about a molded memory foam pillow. Because shredded memory foam pillows, on the other hand, fair much better when it comes to air flow. The same goes for natural latex pillows. While molded latex pillows may get hot for some sleepers, the shredded version performs much better in that respect.

Feather/down pillows and polyfoam ones are known to get hot to varying degrees.

What can you do about a hot pillow?

The quick fix is to flip it to the cool side, which I’m sure you’ve done more than once. Unfortunately, that’s not the best way to sleep. It means you’ll still be waking up from time to time, ultimately disrupting your sleep.

You’ll also find that the market has quite a number of accessories to offer for hot sleepers. You’ll find water pads, gel pads and all sorts of pillows and pillow add-ons. Now, this is a game of hit and miss, as there’s a lot of conflicting reviews. With some solutions, you have to give up support, with others you can’t be sure if there is in any off-gassing. If you feel like experimenting, you could give these accessories a go.

You can resort to tricks like freezing your bedding before you go to bed or freezing your pillow. There’s also the printed T-shirt gimmick – pull the T-shirt over your pillow, print side up. The print should stay cool as you sleep on it. The downside is that the print may feel itchy on your face or you may get up with an imprint on your face, (careful which T-shirt you choose).

You can also turn up the AC if you don’t mind the bills or you can turn on a fan. Boost the effectiveness of the fan with a bowl of ice cubes placed in front of it.

Check whether your pillow case is breathable. You should go for natural materials like cotton or wool.

Finally – get a high-quality pillow.
