Hi, Joshua here with eLuxurySupply! For all of the hot sleepers out there, summer is a challenging time. It gets hot outside and sleeping under heavy comforters and high thread count sheet sets is out of the question. Admittedly, it is tough to put together the perfect summer bedding set. You have to get the perfect balance of light, breathable bedding along with enough to keep you warm while you sleep. Don’t worry, we are here to save your summer sleep with our perfect summer bed…

Let’s start with the mattress. Pillow top and cotton-cover mattresses are great, but they are not the best with temperature regulation. Plus, it’s a new era in mattresses; we have memory foam! Memory foam is honestly one of the most interesting and comfortable materials available today. The eLuxurySupply 10” Gel Injected Memory Foam Mattress is the perfect option here. Our mattress is injected with cooling gel that helps the memory foam regulate body temperature without interfering with it’s powerful comfort properties. These powerful properties are two very simple staples...resiliency and support. The memory foam starts out like a book yet to be written. The more you sleep on your memory foam mattress, the more it adheres and remembers your body shape and weight. This allows your mattress to remain resilient and maintain its supportive structure; all the while continually developing your sleeping spot and becoming more and more comfortable over time.

No matter which mattress you go with, it will always need extra padding to elevate your comfort to the next level. This is where mattress pads are ultra effective. The Extra Plush Rayon from Bamboo Mattress Pad is our best-selling and top-rated mattress pad across the internet. This is mattress pad is praised with five-stars by almost all of our customers and is honestly one of the most comfortable bedding products I’ve ever owned. This mattress pad is made with a fitted elastic skirt that fits up to 18” mattresses, supportive hypoallergenic down alternative cluster fiber fill, and ultra-soft rayon from bamboo cover. The overall comfort and reasonable pricing of this mattress pad makes for one of the best investments you can make for your bed.

Now let’s talk about the top-layer of this summer bed set. The pillows, sheets, and bedspread are very important to parts of this set and will have the most bearing on your temperature regulation. Pillows are pretty subjective and should be chosen based on the way you sleep (side, back, or stomach), but we have a pillow that can cater to any type of sleeper. The 100% Natural Shredded Latex Pillow made by the talalay process is one of the most comfortable, versatile, and breathable pillows we offer. Bed sheets come in many different sizes, colors, and thread counts. The thread count is the important factor here as the higher the thread count, the heavier and thicker the sheet will be. For your summer bed set, it’s best to keep to the lower thread counts to increase breathability. My suggestion here is the 300 Thread Count Rayon from Bamboo Sheet Set. Rayon from Bamboo is one of the softest materials available in bedding; these sheets naturally increase breathability and coolness. Finally, our favorite bedspread for summer is the Zaria 3-piece Coverlet. This beautiful coverlet comes in four simple colors and is the best choice for a summer bedspread. This coverlet offers enough weight to keep you warm at night and not smother you during this hot season.

All of these suggestions will help create the perfect summer bed for any type of sleeper, hot or cool. We also suggest to protect your mattress and pillows with water and bed bug proof encasements. These encasements are a small investment that will provide long-time protection to your mattress and pillows. Please let us know below in the comments how you set your bed up for summer!
