Are cooling sheets worth it? Experts weigh in – plus 22 options to shop
By Megan Foster and Bella Druckman
From linen to bamboo sets, these options will help you beat the heat.
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to taking care of your mental and physical health — and creating the perfect setting is key.
You can find the perfect mattress and use blackout curtains to achieve total darkness, but finding a solution for overheating can be more difficult, especially during the summer. Fortunately, swapping your current bedding for cooling bedsheets can help.
Sleep expert and author of “The Mindful Way to a Good Night’s Sleep” Tzivia Gover tells Shop TODAY that cool and dark conditions are optimal for getting high-quality rest. “When thinking of the ideal environment to support sleep, think of creating a sleep cave.”
What are cooling sheets?
Cooling sheets are bedsheets designed to combat overheating while you sleep. The cooling properties can come from thread count, material or the weight of the fabric.
“Even if you’re the best sleeper, sleeping in a 100-degree room will disturb your quality of sleep,” clinical psychologist Dr. Joshua Tal says.
What should you look for while shopping for cooling bedsheets?
In terms of texture, Dr. Shelby Harris, a licensed clinical psychologist and author of “The Women’s Guide to Overcoming Insomnia,” explains that something smooth and comfortable is best.
“Higher thread counts are more smooth and comfortable, and they frequently trap less heat,” she says. If you don’t have a material preference, she advises choosing the option with the highest thread count you can find.
Tal also advised buying sheets that are made with light and breathable materials such as linen, cotton, eucalyptus or bamboo.
