After a long day, the first thing you want to do is crawl into bed and melt away all your frustration. But sometimes, your frustration can boil when you wake up in the middle of the night, covered in sweat. Research suggests that night sweats can impact up to 41% of sleepers, meaning there’s a fair chance you’ve had to deal with this issue.
There are certain measures you can take to ensure that you stay cool in bed, but there are internal factors to consider as well. Perhaps you have sleep apnea, a condition that over 20 million Americans struggle with. Those with sleep apnea are likely to “sleep hot” alongside those who suffer from anxiety. While it's best to consult with your physician regarding the reason why you sleep hot, it’s possible to find comfortable bedding to help make sleeping a bit easier.
One of the best recommendations for hot sleepers is to find a comforter that is both comforting and light-weight. When buying a comforter or any sort of bedding, consumers might pay more attention to design and price point as opposed to comforter’s thickness. To help put a stop to uncomfortable sweaty nights, read on to learn more about how a comforter can keep you cool at night.
Understanding Comforter Weights & Hot Sleeper Requirements
Comforters come in all sorts of sizes and from different materials, which can make it difficult to fully understand the broader impact weight has. But a general rule of thumb is that heavier the fill, the hotter you’ll feel. When it comes to Down comforters, hot sleepers want the lightest possible option available, i.e., the lowest fill power.
With a low fill power and relaxing, soft exterior, hot sleepers will have the perfect bedding. Anxiety and general restfulness can lead to night sweats, so try and find a material for your comforter that leaves you feel excited to go to bed. The same sentiment extends towards bed sheets as well, which are the first point of contact between your body and the bed. The softer it feels on your body, the more likely you are to cradle away into dreamland.
