Night sweats are more common than you may think—between 10 and 40 percent of adults report having them. And they can happen for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with menopause. (Things like anxiety, alcohol, and certain medications are all potential culprits.) Regardless of the cause, waking up in a puddle of sweat with soaked pajamas and sheets is very much not fun....

But one thing that can help anyone experiencing this issue—same goes if you just run hot—is investing in one of the best cooling mattresses, as they're designed to help regulate your temp while you sleep. Seriously, these mattresses really take things to the next level from sweat-wicking sheets and sleeping naked. Plus, several new options have launched in this category recently, so even if you've looked into the best cooling mattresses before, it's worth giving them a second look since there are some pretty cool (ha) features to be found, like ambient sensors that adapt to the temperature and humidity of your room.

Casper Wave Hybrid Snow Mattress, Queen — $3,195.00

Casper took its most supportive mattress and added their new Snow Technology to it to create this ultra-cooling mattress.

It has bands throughout to pull excess heat away from your body in addition to a breathable cover and a layer of cooling gel.

Eight Sleep The Pod Pro Max, Queen — $3,595.00

First on this mattress’ laundry list of bells and whistles: ambient sensors that measure temperature and humidity, so that it can adapt to the environment. Also in the cooling department—it has a layer that’s infused with graphite, copper, and silver all of which help get rid of heat, and you can set your ideal temperature (and on and off times) for each side of the bed.

But wait, there’s more! It monitors your heart rate, has an individual sleep tracker on both sides, and wakes you up by changing the temperature of the bed and lightly vibrating under your chest (way better than an alarm).
