Turn Summer Night Sweats Into Sweet Dreams

Do summer nights have you sweating when you should be sleeping? They don’t have to.

We have all been there. You wake up tossing and turning in the middle of the night. You start to panic. At first, you may think you slept through your alarm. Then, you realize you are awake at 4 a.m. because you’re dripping with sweat. Now, you are laying in hot, damp sheets and you need to switch pillows, and try to start the whole process of falling asleep all over again. I believe the sleep experience is something we should look forward to rewarding ourselves with each night, so we can welcome the morning feeling positive and refreshed – not stressed and sweaty.

For those who are hot sleepers, it is hard to wake up feeling recharged and ready to take on the day after tossing and turning in night sweats. What can help? Look for bedding that is specifically designed with technology to help you fall asleep faster, and balance your body temperature throughout the night. I know many people who are hot sleepers appreciate an extra cold-to-the-touch sleep environment to help them cool down, relax and fall asleep. Combine this performance quality with materials that further enhance breathability, absorb excess heat and wick away moisture, and you have built an innovative sleep system that will help you sleep cool, dry and comfortable.

Pottery Barn has made cool sleep technology for hot sleepers easy to find in an innovative bedding collection of sheets, pillows, and mattress pad. The Polar Point™ Cooling bedding collection is designed with Outlast® technology which was originally designed for NASA to be used to absorb excess heat in space suits – so if you don’t trust us, trust NASA. Outlast® technology absorbs and releases excess body heat on contact, creating a soothing, ice cold sleep surface, while adjusting to your body’s microclimate to manage fluctuations between hot and cold for a more comfortable night’s sleep. Plus, the technology is permanent and won’t wash out. The products in this collection include:

·Polar Point™ Cooling Cotton Sheet SetThis sheet set uses the Outlast technology viscose yarns woven with long staple Cotton to absorb heat and create a noticeably softer and cooler touch than traditional Cotton sheets. These sheets will help you fall asleep easily and keep your temperature balanced throughout the night.

Polar Point™ Cool Touch Mattress Pad – Similar to the sheet set, the mattress pad uses the same technology embedded into the sleep surface to absorb heat and create a cool sleep environment. The hypoallergenic fiber fill provides long lasting support and comfort. Polar Point™ Down Alternative PillowThe Down Alternative Pillow uses Outlast technology on one side and 100% cotton on the reverse side. The filling material is AptiveCool™ Moisture Wicking Down Alternative. The hypoallergenic fiber is re-fluffable and designed to feel like Down. It is enhanced with odor fighting technology to smell fresh and remain cool through the night.

Polar Point™ Down Alternative Memory PillowThe Memory Pillow uses the same shell as the Down Alternative pillow with Outlast technology on one side and 100% cotton on the reverse. The difference is the filling in the memory pillow is designed to feel supportive like memory foam with pressure evenly distributed to support your head and neck in all positions. This filling prevents odors and bacteria-driven allergens in the fill, and will stay cool all night.

If you are a hot sleeper or simply just enjoy sleeping on a cold surface, these Polar Point™ cooling bedding products now available at Pottery Barn are the ones for you. As the summer creeps on and the nights get warmer, these sheets, pillows, and mattress pad will keep you well rested and ready to take on your day by the morning. Trade in your sweaty nights for sweet dreams instead. For more information, go to or
