Have you ever heard anyone say that memory foam mattresses are "hot"? This misconception is due to the fact that traditional spring mattresses have an completely open interior. However, memory foam mattresses are constructed very differently. This leads many to conclude that memory foam mattresses must be hotter than inner spring mattresses but this is not true. 

Contrary to popular belief, most memory foam mattresses are not made of just a single, dense block of material which would cause them to retain heat. Most memory foam mattresses have multiple layers. Memory foam only makes up one of these layers. Together these layers provide the support and pressure relief that our memory foam is so popular for. This is one of the things you should look for to ensure that your mattress will be of good quality, and durable. Somewhere between these layers there should be an air flow component. This layer is included to provide an area where air can freely flow through your memory foam mattress. The airflow layer should keep the mattress cool and prevent overheating as well. In addition, our mattresses are constructed with large, open cells as an added measure to allow even more air flow.

You can rest assured that a Nature's Sleep memory foam mattress will not become hot while you are resting on it. However, if you are a hot sleeper, you may want a mattress that is more specifically designed to cool you down and absorb sweat. We recommend one of our gel memory foam mattresses such as the Glacier Gel mattress. We offer several gel mattresses for you to choose from, so you are sure to find the one that's perfect for you!
