Who else is tired of waking up in a pool of their own sweat? Night sweats, hot flashes and the odd panic attack can lead to some not-so-fun times in the bedroom.
Staying chill in bed is about more than keeping the thermostat at a polar -10 degrees F. You needn't attempt to sleep buck naked (unless you want to). Keep your ice cubes in your martini. Neck-cooling buzz cuts look trendy and edgy on women, but hairdressers need love, and recurring income, too.
"Keep Cool Bedding" to the rescue.
Yes, Virginia, you can sleep blissfully and comfortably COOL all night long. Even with clothes and long hair.
Below, I list the best of five essential items to stay cool in bed. Each bedding element is important, both on its own -and- as part of your entire bedding ensemble.
Pick up one or all of the following must have "Keep Cool Bedding" items and I promise, you'll remain your usual sultry, sizzling self for many years to come. But in a good way!

Keep Cool Bedding Mattress Pad
A good mattress pad keeps your body off contact with your mattress, which allows you to prevent mattress heat issues. Keeping your mattress spill and stain free is great, and mattress pads allow you to adjust for the specific firmness you want. Mattress pads are cheaper to replace than mattresses, to boot. This Pillow Top version comes with a cool Down Alternative Fill. “I live in Florida and have hot flashes. This pad is awesome for me. I highly recommend!”
Keep Cool Bedding Mattress Protector
Your innermost bamboo layer for breezy comfort, your mattress and its pad are kept spotless thanks to this hypoallergenic, waterproof protector. "The bamboo mattress protector is made of great quality materials, I love that it has a cotton and terry top. It fits perfectly on top of my mattress and it does allow room for a 3" mattress topper to go underneath. This was perfect to cover both."
Keep Cool Bedding Bamboo Sheet Set
We're sticking with bamboo for a reason. It's better than cotton at keeping you comfortably cool at night, and it feels amazing! This bedding set is available in 12 colors, so you won't have any trouble matching your bed covers. A review noted these sheets are “so light and yet they are like those weighted linens that are so popular (and expensive) these days. Cooler, softer and more luxurious feeling than cotton.”
Keep Cool Bedding Pillow Set
Everyone knows you lose heat from your head. Help expedite the heat loss with this set of two memory foam bed pillows with bamboo hypoallergenic covers. As with the rest of the Keep Cool Bedding, bamboo is better than cotton at keeping you comfortably cool at night! Remember that with memory foam, it's important to follow manufacturer's instructions to get pillows to their natural soft and fluffy state!
Keep Cool Bedding Cooling Blanket
When you need a bit of weight to sleep comfortably, but can't handle an extra degree of heat, these are your best bet in blankets! As you would expect, these blankets are made of sweet, chill bamboo. It's not suitable for colder days unless you're a Himalayan snowman of a certain abomination. For the rest of us, for a great winter blanket that won't overheat you, I'd stick with my lightweight yet luxurious cotton blanket recommendation.
Reversible Mattress Pad
“We have back/headaches almost every morning. I ordered this mattress pad in hopes of making our futon more comfortable. I wasn't expecting a huge change ... but I got one! We have slept the last few nights with this pad and we fall asleep faster, stay asleep, and wake up rested and without pain." With fleece on the "winter" side of the pad, you're all set for a whole year's worth of night time comfort. I LOVE this versatile four-season mattress pad!
21st Century App Technology - Ooler Sleep System
The Ooler Sleep System takes advantage of 21st century app technology, which all0ws you to set the temperature of your mattress pad anywhere from 55 - 115 degrees F. This feat is accomplished via water that circulates throughout the pad. Genius, I say! This is a pricey system to be sure; the model displayed here is a refurbished, like-new model. “I am a hot sleeper on a memory foam mattress who used to wake up soaked in sweat. Not anymore with Ooler. My nights are cool and dry," says one reviewer who finds this system worth every penny!
I hope this list of Keep Cool Bedding will help you and your bedmate do just that. Let me know in the comments what works for you to keep things not-so-hot in your bedroom! 😉
