When it comes to getting a good night’s rest, having the right sleeping environment is key to staying asleep and catching quality Zs.

The type of pillow you choose, the material of sheets you sleep on and your mattress all play a part in your sleep quality each night, which is why I’m a huge proponent of setting up a “sleep oasis.” When your bedroom is one of your most relaxing places in your apartment or home, that’s already one positive factor contributing to your sleep.

If you’re a hot sleeper like me who tends to overheat at night and prefers a cooler sleep environment, there’s now dozens of “cooling” products to add to your sleep oasis.

While we’ve covered cooling sheets before, the latest accessory to add to your bed is Layla Sleep’s cooling memory foam topper. If you’re tossing and turning because of an old mattress, adding a cooling mattress topper like this one is a more affordable way to add instant comfort, especially if you’re not ready to plop down the money for a new mattress.

Encased in the same material as Layla Sleep’s mattresses, the topper is not only soft and cool-to-the-touch, but it’s made with a foam material that allows you to stay cool all night long. The copper gel beads within the foam absorb your body heat to pull it away from you as you sleep, according to the product description.

Because the topper is two inches thick, it feels like you’re sleeping on a cloud. The foam also helps keep your body aligned and acts as support for your hips, back and shoulders, as it condenses under the deep compression points of your body.

And with a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, more than 300 customers have raved about the cooling mattress topper.

“We bought a mattress from another company a few months ago, and it ended up being way too firm,” one reviewer said. “The Layla mattress pad really helped soften the feel of the mattress, and it is much more comfortable now.”

Other than the topper not trapping any additional heat into your bed, customers have also said it helps with reducing the transfer of motion, especially if you have a partner who tosses and turns. Shoppers have also praised that the added straps do hold the topper in place.

Starting at $149, the Layla Sleep foam topper is available in twin size to California king.

Feeling overheated while sleeping can last long after the summer is over, so if you need an easy solution to a better night’s rest, this topper is one of our top picks.
