It’s not every day we get a good night’s rest (and if you do, tell me your secret). Sleep is a delicate game, and there are a lot of factors that affect it. Personally, I sleep hot, so I can count on at least one unwelcome wake-up in the middle of the night that’s sweaty and disruptive. While there are a lot of methods on the internet for falling and staying asleep, it goes without saying that the mattress we lie on plays a significant role. Luckily, we do a lot of testing here at Apartment Therapy, and our Best List has revealed a mattress that might solve at least one problem: hot sleep. The Cocoon by Sealy mattress came in number one for best mattress of the year, and for good reason: it works. “It’s become my preferred mattress over the one I had previously,” says Sales Research & Consumer Insights Associate Director Marisa. “It’s extremely comfortable, doesn’t move or bounce when your partner gets out of bed/moves around, and is very light/easy to move.” Plus, it comes in a box and is currently on sale for Black Friday — what more could you ask for?

What Is the Chill Mattress?

If you can imagine what sleeping on a cool, comfortable cloud would feel like, that’s this mattress. The 10-inch mattress comes in both a memory foam and a hybrid option. The memory foam is soft and cozy, while the 12-inch hybrid has more of a bounce to it. Both mattresses are just right — neither too squishy nor too firm. And if you’re sleeping with a partner? No problem. Its Quantum Edge support allows you to use every inch of the mattress (as opposed to only the middle) and has responsive coils that help isolate motion. In other words, you won’t be disturbed if your partner wakes up in the middle of the night. The best part is both mattresses come with a unique cover that acts as an ice shield. It’s like a magical cooling blanket against bedtime heat, making it ideal for hot sleepers. Bonus: it comes in a box!
