Are you always freezing and can’t sleep at night because you’re so cold? It might sound weird for anyone in Texas but it happens more often than you think! We’ve got the hottest tips and expert recommendations to keep you warm and cozy!

Why Your Mattress Matters

When people are concerned about body temperature as it pertains to their sleep, it’s important to look at the design and components of your mattress. If you sleep hot, you typically want as much space for air to flow (think, innerspring, pocketed coils, and latex). But if you’re a cold sleeper, you want your mattress to retain as much of your body heat as possible. There is good news for our cold sleeper friends though – you have far fewer limitations than your hotter sleeping counterparts!

Foam Is Your Friend!

If you’re a cold sleeper, foam is your best friend. In fact, the best mattresses for cold sleepers are probably ones made up of 100% foam. Memory foam was originally developed by NASA but since then has become a mainstay in the bedding industry thanks to its comfort and durability. Memory foam mattresses can come in all types of comfort feels from soft to firm and they provide excellent lumbar support as it contours to your body to help relieve aches and pains.

Expert note: Memory foam may feel firm at first but as you continue to lay on it, it will contour to your body creating a cloud-like feeling.

Sleep Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress:

  • Minimal Partner Disturbance – Memory foam actually absorbs energy and responds locally to movement which can be helpful if you don’t want to wake your partner when you roll over at night (or vice versa!)
  • Support – Memory foam actually gets softer as you continue to lay on it which creates a cradle-like effect that relieves pressure and provides an even level of support.
  • Adjustable Foundation Compatibility – Memory foam mattresses are the perfect pair for an adjustable foundation. These foundations are beneficial to people who suffer from a variety of ailments from physical pain to insomnia.

All-Memory Foam Mattresses

Sleeping cold at night is no joke. Shivering and battling to stay warm interrupts and decreases the quality of your sleep. If you’re serious about getting and staying warm our experts recommend trying out a 100% foam mattress.

Featured Components: This line of mattresses is made up of 100% foam. However, the density of the foam, type, and height vary to create different levels of comfort from ultra soft to extreme firm.

Why Our Experts Like It: This type of mattress can trap heat more effectively than mattresses designed with different components. This is not ideal for some people – especially those who battle with staying cool. But if you’re a cold sleeper, this is more of a perk than a downfall! Memory foam mattresses are also known to be supportive as well as fit all sleeping positions. So whether you’re a back sleeper who prefers a medium mattress or a combination sleeper who wants to feel like they’re on a cloud, there’s a memory foam mattress for you!
