Many people wonder whether latex mattresses are hot to sleep on. Among contouring mattresses, latex mattresses are among the coolest. However, poor manufacturing or additives can make the mattress less breathable, and therefore warmer.Size Guide.

Keep in mind that latex will sleep cooler than memory foam, but it won’t be as cool as an innerspring with minimal padding. There is more empty space in an innerspring thus more ventilation and a somewhat cooler sleep.
Mattresses made from natural latex sleep much cooler than memory foam mattresses. Natural latex is sourced from the sap of rubber trees. This natural material does not retain body heat like a memory foam mattress does. Organic mattresses made from natural latex also encourage more airflow in and around the mattress.
The structure of a mattress is solid. Therefore, you can’t change the airflow of the mattress. Your best bet would be to ensure there is enough space under the mattress for free movement of air. Not having enough space under your mattress will trap air under your mattress and cause it to heat up.
Why Does a Memory Foam Mattress Get Hot? Many memory foam mattresses have an issue retaining body heat because memory foam is a rather dense mattress material. Plus, these beds lack interconnected air channels. Once the heat is absorbed by the mattress, it’s not easy for it to work its way out.
