Causes of Over-Heating on Memory Foam 

1. One of the reasons why you can get too hot is due to the dense structure of foam. Memory foam is a very dense substance so naturally it does not allow much air to pass through it. This dense design has so many benefits including full body support and luxurious comfort. However if you feel too warm during the night, it could be the lack of ventilation which is to blame. Your built up body heat doesn’t have anywhere to go!

2. Another cause of overheating is your improved blood circulation. This is one of the many health benefits that comes with sleeping on a memory foam mattress, as the pressure relief and spinal alignment encourages healthier blood circulation, which in turn means you feel warmer. Usually your body will adjust to this over time and after a few weeks you’ll be sleeping comfortably again.
