Cool mattresses use temperature-regulating materials, such as gels and memory foams, to draw heat away from you for a cooler sleep. As a result, your body temperature remains lower throughout the night, improving both comfort levels and sleep quality.
There are a few different reasons why memory foam tends to retain body heat. The first has to do with the material’s structure. In order for memory foam to provide adequate support, it has to be relatively dense. That means that memory foam has less airflow than other materials. The denser a memory foam mattress is, the more heat it will trap.
Memory foam also retains body heat because of its unique conforming properties. One of the reasons many people enjoy memory foam mattresses is because they cradle the body and relieve pressure points. In this process, the foam actually uses your body heat to mould to your particular shape.
The downside is that body heat becomes trapped because more of your body is surrounded by the mattress. Since your body relies on air-to-skin contact to cool down, this can also detract from your body’s ability to thermoregulate.
We have a few different choices so do consider a few types and come in to store if you can to try them out.
