I have an ultimate luxury plush box top mattress and am hot in it every night. I have tried all-cotton, down, and poly-filled mattress pads (all with 100% cotton covering) and they are no help. Is there any hope for me and this mattress? After 3 weeks now, I sink into the middle of it (and it still carries an odor).

What to do??? (No more exchanges permitted for me.)

Hello and thank you for your question!

There is hope for a cool, comfortable night's sleep despite being stuck with your current mattress.

Chili-Pads Website

We've tested these chili-pads and they really work great. They are temperature regulating pads so you can set the mattress at your ideal sleeping temperature. You can also spend less on your heating and air conditioning thanks to a Chilipad, but they are rather expessive to start.

Please give us a call if you have any other questions and have a wonderful day!

Chilli-Pads are not a bad way to go. We evaluated them as well. Who makes your mattress? Do you have memory foam on your bed?

Chili-Pad is a good choice. The cheap way out is more layers of natural fibers under you.

For a less expensive way to go, try either St. Dormeir wool-filled mattress protector or Natura's Washable Wool Mattress protector. Wool is a natural temperature regulator and has helped every person we have sold one to! Good luck!

The reason i ask about memory foam. memory foam (unless it is gel) usually sleeps warmer. While a chili pad might make your bed cooler, it will also make the memory foam firmer. I dont know that i agree with adding wool to your bed. wool is often found in blankets and quilts and might add to your problem.

I highly recommend that you add some form of phase-change technology to your mattress in the form of sheets, pillows or a comforter, or all three... Check out the products at ShopOutlast.com. (coincidentally I am not affiliated with them in any way! ) Outlast technology is the surface technology incorporated on the new Sealy Optimum and Hybrid beds, and absorbs heat energy away from your body actively throughout the night. I have been referring my clients to these products with great results.

Chilli pads are great, and can be expensive. Sleep Number just introduced an air cool system, but it is even more. How long have you had your bed? If it is just 3 weeks old, how many times have you exchanged it? Heat is hard to stop, you could also try tencil, lyosel, or bamboo mattress pads. There are also some wool pads (I know it sounds weird) available. perhaps even a couple of pads might help air movement.

It could also be the placement of the bed in your room. If you are in a warm climate and it is against an outside wall, moving it to an inside wall near the AC vent may help.

If you decide you need to replace mattress, and I hope the suggestions here can help you not do that, please spend more time shopping the next time. Different tech pleases different people. Any potential bed that you find you must lay on for a minimum of 15 minutes, and preferably more. Some people like to sink into bed, others do not, there are beds made for both, you just need to take the time to find the right one.

I hope this helps, if you would want to talk about it, NO STRINGS ATTACHED, feel free to call me. You can get my phone number by clicking on my name.
