What Are The Best Bed Sheets For Summer? Do Cooling Sheets Really Work?

Posted on by Sleep Expert

Do you wake up in the middle of the night because you’re basically bathing in your own sweat? We know the feeling and we can confidently say that it’s one of the worst feelings ever. Temperature is an important factor when it comes to sleep. If it’s too cold in your bedroom, chances are high this will negatively affect your quality of sleep. But the same applies to temperatures that are too high. Whereas in the winter, you grab an extra thick duvet or add another blanket on top to keep warm, there’s not much to do in summer when it’s simply too hot outside. But we have the solution for you: temperature regulating bed sheets. Yes, you read that right, sheets that will help to keep you cool, even during the hottest nights. 

What is the best summer bedding?

The first important thing to do when summertime arrives is getting rid of your winter duvet. That 10.5 tog duvet is lovely when it’s cold outside, but once the temperature outdoors goes up to 20 degrees, you’ll definitely want to switch to a lower tog. Firstly, it’s important to wash your summer bedding that has just come out of storage. When that’s done (and luckily, that shouldn’t be too difficult), it’s time to make your bed with the 4.5 or 7 tog summer duvet. And for that, you’re going to need summer bed sheets, which have been especially designed to keep your body cool throughout the muggy summer nights. 

Smart Temperature Bedding

What is temperature control bedding?

This might as well be the best invention of the century. If you struggle with night sweats, are going through menopause or simply get hot too quickly, temperature control bedding might be the solution to your sleepless nights. These cooling bed sheets and pillows help to regulate your body temperature, which means that you will keep cool during the summer. Our temperature control products are created with the unique Activated Cooling™ and Smart Temperature™ technology from Swiss textile innovators HeiQ®, delivering both instant and continuous cooling and temperature management. To give you a better understanding of how the cooling technology works, we’ll break it down into two easy steps. The intelligent thermoregulation system offers cooling before the first signs of moisture even occurs. Once it senses an increase in body temperature, a unique cooling effect will be activated. This allows moisture to evaporate, mimicking the body’s natural evaporative cooling mechanism. Don’t worry about getting too cold, because the smart system will ease back its cooling effect once your body temperature has dropped to a normal level. Genius, right?
