The 9 Best Comforters For Hot Sleepers
By Rachel Cavanaugh
The key to a good night’s sleep is to stay warm without overheating. This can be tricky, however, if you’re someone who tends to overheat at night. The best comforters for hot sleepers combine breathable, moisture-wicking material and a lightweight design to prevent you from waking up in a puddle of sweat. Here’s what to look for when shopping around:
Breathable material: The material itself should be breathable with a looser weave to provide some ventilation. Natural fibers like cotton and bamboo are great for this, though polyester can also make for a breathable comforter depending on the construction.
Lightweight design: If you tend to get hot when you sleep you obviously don’t want a thick, bulky blanket. Thinner designs with less filling will feel better — especially if you’re set on going with a down comforter (in which case, look for one with a fill power of around 500 to 600).
Moisture-wicking properties: Sweat-management is another factor for hot sleepers. Moisture-wicking fibers such as mica, eucalyptus, lyocell, and polyester can help lift sweat away from your body and move it to the outer layer of the fabric so it can dry more quickly.
Apart from temperature regulation, other factors to consider when buying a comforter include how soft the material is or how easy it is to wash. Also think about the filling — it should be fluffy and aerated with high-quality stitching to keep it from bunching up.
With all of these considerations in mind, scroll through the best comforters for hot sleepers below to find the best fit for your style and budget. (Pro tip: many of them pair well with a cooling duvet cover).
An Organic Bamboo Duvet That’s Extra Soft and Comfy
Cariloha All-Season Organic Bamboo Duvet Comforter
What’s great about it: Made with ultra-breathable bamboo fabric, this super comfortable all-season duvet is another fantastic option for hot sleepers. Constructed with 100% organic bamboo viscose and OEKO-TEX 100 certified (meaning it’s free of harmful chemicals), it’s not only cool to sleep in but soft and hypoallergenic too. It features a moisture-wicking design so if you tend to sweat a lot you won’t wake up drenched. The only downsides are that it’s dry-clean only and it tends to sell out.
One reviewer wrote: “I’m a hot sleeper and have spent many nights constantly sweating. Since changing out my sheets to Cariloha with this Duvet Comforter, I’ve had one of the coolest nights sleeps I can remember. I absolutely look forward to getting under the sheets more now then ever.”
