What mattress is best for hot sleepers?
The type of mattress you choose can make a big difference when it comes to the quality of your sleep.
If you struggle with overheating during the night, your mattress could be the culprit.
Although memory foam has been known to be overly warm in the past, new innovations in memory foam technology mean that the right memory foam mattress could be just right for a cool night’s sleep.
Do cooling mattresses work?
Here at Memory Foam Warehouse, we’ve devised an intelligent way of keeping you cool at night.
The innovative fabric used in our CoolMax mattress range contains unique fibres designed to allow breathability and disperse moisture. This helps to regulate your body temperature while you sleep, whatever your sleep position.
Are memory foam mattresses worth it?
What’s all the fuss about when it comes to memory foam?
Memory foam can transform your sleeping experience by providing extra support that’s tailored to you. The open-cell structure of the viscoelastic foam moulds to your body shape, keeping your spine in natural alignment. This helps to ease tension by providing individualised support.
Here are just some of the benefits of memory foam;
- Memory foam moulds to your body for ultimate comfort.
- Memory foam spreads your weight evenly, minimising discomfort around pressure points.
- Memory foam is hypoallergenic.
- Memory foam absorbs movement.
- A high quality memory foam mattress is long-lasting.
- Memory foam is perfect for side sleepers.
Is a gel mattress better than memory foam?
The other option for hot sleepers is a cool gel-infused memory foam mattress. But which is best?
- The benefit of gel mattresses is that the gel enhances air circulation, helping you to stay cool. However, with developments in memory foam technology, staying cool is no longer a problem.
- The main disadvantage of gel mattresses is that they don’t last as long as memory foam.
What are the best mattresses to keep you cool?
Every mattress within our CoolMax® range features either 40kg/m3 or 50kg/m3 high density viscoelastic memory foam and a superior quality reflex foam base, offering you the perfect combination of comfort and support for a better night’s sleep.
Here’s an overview of the CoolMax range:

Do I need A cooling memory foam mattress topper?
If your current mattress is preventing you from maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout the night, it might be worth investing in a cooling mattress pad or topper.
Try one of these toppers from the following ranges;
CoolMax mattress topper
A CoolMax mattress topper helps to eliminate moisture and excess body heat. Hypoallergenic, antibacterial and available in two thicknesses.
The Zen range combines layers of memory foam to help ease joint pain and reduce movement, with the added benefit of cooling fibres.
The open cell structure of this mattress topper allows air to pass through - perfect if you find traditional memory foam too warm.
However, a high quality memory foam mattress with airflow technology shouldn’t require a topper.
Mattresses in our CoolMax range come with a removable, washable cover with the same cooling technology built in.
