Spring cleaning is upon us, and if you’re getting ready to swap out your bedding for the approaching warmer months, a cooling comforter may be exactly what you need. Below, 20 of our favorites—from options featuring breathable fabrics, temperature-regulating technology, down alternatives and weighted blankets—all of which will keep you from waking up at 3 a.m., drenched in sweat. So here’s looking at you, fellow hot sleepers, because it’s time to stop those night sweats from getting progressively worse as the temperature climbs.


  • Cooling Technologies: Check the package: What kind of cooling tech does it offer, and what does it actually do? HydroCool, for example, features moisture-wicking fibers that prevent you from getting sweaty. Another popular feature, Outlast, is a NASA-developed “phase change” material that helps regulate your body temperature, preventing sweat from happening in the first place.
  • Hypoallergenic: Some materials used in comforters may cause allergic reactions. Should you have allergies, be sure to look for hypoallergenic options, especially when it comes to down. You’ll likely want to choose a down-alternative.
  • Down-Alternative: More often than not, you’ll find blankets with down-alternatives that feel just as fluffy as traditional down blankets. They typically trap less heat than all those down feathers, plus they tend to be less expensive.
  • OEKO-TEX Certified: To be OEKO-TEX certified, textile and leather products must hit strict OEKO-TEX safety and environmental requirements. More specifically, they must be free of harmful substances like arsenic, lead, formaldehyde and pesticides, and meet environmentally and socially responsible production standards.


The 8 Best Cooling Mattress Toppers for Sweat-Free Nights

Best Comforter Overall

1. The Buffy Breeze

  • Why We Love It: Hypoallergenic, OEKO-TEX certified, wave-stitch pattern helps keep materials in place
  • What to Know Before Buying: Recommended dry clean only, the feel is light and thin (not fluffy)

“If you’re looking for a lightweight duvet that works for every season, is eco-friendly and cozy AF—and won’t make you sweat in your sleep—the Buffy is it,” writes former Fashion Director Dena Silver in a PureWow100 review. “It’s made with 100 percent eucalyptus fill—so it doesn’t trap heat like polyester or down—and its [materials feature] cool to the touch eucalyptus [with a] fiber shell that’s temperature-regulating. All that to say: This blanket was made for down-blanket devotees who can’t give up that cozy feel...even in July.” Plus, the brand offers a seven-night trial, so you can sleep with it for a week before deciding to keep it. If you decide to return it after that trial, you have 30 days to initiate the free return for a full refund.

Editor’s Pick

2. Casper Humidity-Fighting Duvet

  • Why We Love It: RDS-certified, moisture-wicking, baffle-box construction to keep fill in place
  • What to Know Before Buying: Duvet cover not included in the price, low fill power

We all know the famous Casper mattress, and now it’s time to know their Humidity-Fighting Duvet. Take it from this editor; it made me feel like I was wrapped in a cloud. Its layer of Merino wool adds a cooling technology to help wick away moisture, block humidity and regulate temperature throughout the night. It also has a 100 percent cotton shell that remained crisp and cool, and it features an ethically sourced down filling (which is a major bonus, if you’re a tree-hugger like me). It also fluffed right back up after I sat on it, and the sewn pockets allow the down to remain in place—it remains perfectly feathered, no shifting or fluffing over time. My only complaint, however, was that the lightweight option was not very lofty, and I was disappointed by how thin it was compared to the photos. Nevertheless, this comforter delivered on all of its cooling promises: It wicked away moisture like a pro and kept me sweat-free all night long.

Slumber Cloud

Best Temperature Regulating Comforter

3. Slumber Cloud Lightweight Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Outlast technology stores and releases heat based on your body temperature, hypoallergenic, OEKO-TEX certified, machine washable
  • What to Know Before Buying: Slumber Cloud offers a 180-night warranty (where you can return the comforter at no extra cost after a 60-day trial period)

If NASA approves of the Slumber Cloud Lightweight Cooling Comforter’s temperature-regulating Outlast technology, it’s probably safe to say you will, too. The 100 percent cotton cover gives the blanket its breathability, while the ClimaDry fiberfill helps wick away moisture, so you stay sweat-free while you sleep. The real kicker, however, is its unprecedented temperature regulation: “Outlast technology is proactive, not reactive. As your body temperature increases during sleep, [the comforter] stores that heat to keep you cool, and then releases it as you cool down—keeping you feeling ‘just right,’” per the brand. One reviewer backs this up, writing: “This comforter is perfect for both hot and chilly sleepers. It really does seem to adjust to both hot flashes, and chilly room temps. During a frigid Christmas week blizzard, we were kept very comfortable under this duvet—despite our drafty house trying to keep up with sub-zero temps and gale force winds. Next week, when the temperature rose [by] 50 degrees, we were just as comfortable under this lightweight comforter. This one's a keeper!” Psst: The brand also offers free shipping on U.S. orders and free returns before the end of a 60-night trial (and 180-night warranty).


Best Moisture-Wicking Comforter

4. Rest ‘Evercool’ Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Evercool fabric is lab-tested to wick away moisture and keep you dry, fabric is soft and silky to the touch, hypoallergenic, machine washable
  • What to Know Before Buying: You can return the comforter at no extra cost within the 30-night trial period

With a 4.8-star rating and more than 1,000 positive reviews, it makes sense why people are coveting this comforter. The hype lies in its lab-tested, Evercool performance fabric, which absorbs and transfers heat 10-times faster than cotton (per the brand). The fabric is constructed with a fully drawn yarn technique that mimics silk—making it smooth and soft to the touch—and the ultra-thin fibers produce a non-stick sleeping environment that’ll keep you dry all night long. One reviewer writes, “My wife was suffering nightly with severe night sweats and hot flashes due to a medical condition. We had tried everything, [but] she would wake up several times a night drenched and incredibly uncomfortable. Since we purchased this comforter, she can sleep through the night comfortably [and sweat free].” And they’re not the only one. “Before receiving this comforter, I would wake up dripping in sweat every morning, no matter how cold it was outside,” another reviewer shares. “Since I have been using the Rest comforter, I have woken up dry for the first time in years.” On top of that, however, the comforter is also reversible, and the fabric features anti-pilling and anti-snagging fabric (that’s also good at repelling pet hair).

Cozy Earth

Best Bamboo Comforter

5. Cozy Earth Bamboo Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Hypoallergenic, lightweight yet insulating, machine washable and enhanced to resist pilling.
  • What to Know Before Buying: Includes a 7-day trial period, comforter should be washed once a week

Made from moisture-wicking viscose that's derived from bamboo, this comforter feels degrees cooler than cotton—and it’s a boon for hot flash sufferers and sleepers who tend to get overheated. “I highly recommend this product for warm sleepers, one reviewer writes. “It has the softest, [silky] material and best temperature control. It’s light [but] still provides a nice weight at night for added comfort and warmth on cooler nights. The seven-day trial period [also] helped confirm that I want to keep this product.” Plus, because wrapping yourself up burrito-style in a genuine down comforter can lead to pesky allergy symptoms, this one’s bamboo base is hypoallergenic and as a result, it does an exceptional job at keeping allergies at bay. Oh, and did we mention that the fabric is machine washable and enhanced to resist pilling?


Best Eucalyptus Comforter

6. Eucalypso 'The Dream' Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Tencel lyocell eucalyptus is finished in Dreamweave technology that’s designed to be light and breathable, prevents night sweats, ideal for anyone who’s allergy- and breakout-prone, machine washable
  • What to Know Before Buying: Wash separately in cold water on gentle cycle and hang to dry

What does sleeping on the Eucalypso Dream Comforter feel like? “Like you're floating on a big cozy marshmallow, being cocooned by airy wisps of cloud,” according to the brand. Mainly, this has to do with its 100 percent Tencel lyocell fibers (a fancy brand name for eucalyptus), which is silky soft on the skin—and ideal for anyone who’s allergy- and breakout-prone. Plus, it’s naturally cool to the touch and moisture wicking, where it’s finished in a special DreamWeave Technology that’s designed to be uniquely light, airy, and breathable. One reviewer raves: “I love, love, love [this] comforter…Not only is it wonderfully soft, but [it prevents from] disgusting sweat! I get very hot in my sleep, where sometimes, it even wakes me up. With [this] comforter, I slept straight through!” Another reviewer writes, “I live in Texas where the weather tends to be bipolar. I’ll get night sweats but I’ll also get cold. [This comforter] has helped me stay dry [and] it feels super soft and silky against my skin.” However, it’s worth noting that they also mention: “The only reason I’m taking one star [off] is because I still get cold through the night. I do wish it was a bit more fluffy; it’s a bit thin, but I assume that’s what helps regulate your temperature.”


Best Down Comforter

7. The Brooklinen Lightweight Down Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Three fill options, hypoallergenic, materials are insulating without causing overheating
  • What to Know Before Buying: Dry clean only, Brooklinen offers returns for up to a year after purchase

Yet another cooling number this editor loves? Brooklinen’s Lightweight Down Comforter. While it’s available in three weights—including All-season, Ultra-warm and Lightweight—the latter’s 650-fill-power of duck down provides that Goldilocks loft; not too thin and not too thick. I loved this option because it felt breezy and breathable, while still being plush enough to look like it came straight out of a Nancy Meyers's film. More importantly: The filling was simultaneously insulating and breathable and I was impressed by how warm it kept me without causing overheating. It’s also worth mentioning that the down clusters and feathers are evenly distributed in an ultra-soft, 400-thread-count cotton sateen shell, which offers a crisp outer finish that’s noticeably cool from the second it comes out of the box.

pottery barn

Best Down Alternative Comforter

8. Pottery Barn Hydrocool Down Alternative Duvet

  • Why We Love It: HydroCool technology and performance down, hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, provides all-over warmth
  • What to Know Before Buying: Duvet cover is sold separately (but recommended for longevity)

The HydroCool Ultra Plush Temperature Regulating Duvet is about as luxe as it gets. Both extra-fluffy and moisture-wicking, you’ll feel like you’re drifting off to sleep at a five-star hotel, wrapped in a 100 percent cotton-filled down-alternative cocoon with 300-thread count damask stripes. One reviewer writes: “The comforter features moisture-wicking fibers to keep you cool and dry while you sleep. Even in warmer weather or when I had the heat cranked up, I never felt hot or stuffy underneath it. Using baffle box construction, the blanket's filling remains evenly distributed and provides all-over warmth throughout the night.” Of course, with a blanket like this, you’ll have to pay standard shipping and return fees, but if it’s anything short of what you’ve always wanted, you’ll have 30 days to send it back.


Best Cotton Comforter

9. Parachute Cloud Cotton Quilt

  • Why We Love It: Fabric is breathable, lightweight and beautifully constructed with Turkish cotton, machine washable, available in five earth-toned colorways
  • What to Know Before Buying: Materials are delicate and prone to snagging, best used as a summer blanket

Constructed with four-ply gauze fabrication and 100 percent long-staple Turkish cotton, this overstuffed quilt is an obvious must-have if you’re on the hunt for something light and airy (and oh-so-chic). “I have [purchased a few items] from Parachute, but my absolute favorite has to be the Cloud Cotton Quilt. It’s sooo soft and cozy, but not overly hot. I had a duvet on my bed previously, but it was so hot and bulky…[this comforter] is warm yet airy, which is so nice during Texas summers,” one reviewer writes. However, it’s worth nothing a few reviewers mentioned snagging: “My only criticism is that it snags super easily…I got a piece of Velcro stuck on the quilt right after I purchased it, and it left a snag.” But that snag didn’t make them regret their purchase: “It's cozy and the right weight to use year-round—and it looks beautiful on our bed, I love that it is reversible…Overall I'm super happy with [the feel of this] and would definitely [buy it again].” On top of that, it’s gauzy, dream-like feel, it’s also machine washable and available in five earth-toned colorways.

Muslin Comfort

Best Lightweight Comforter

10. Muslin 'The 365' Blanket

  • Why We Love It: Lightweight and breathable without trapping heat, oversized fit, 8-pound weight makes it feel substantial, muslin cotton is naturally temperature-regulating, machine washable
  • What to Know Before Buying: Might be too thin for those who live in cooler climates, 30-night trial period

Here, another gauzy, lightweight option that reviewers are loving. Muslin’s 365 blanket was intentionally designed for hot sleepers and those who suffer from night sweats, where its temperature-regulating, Muslin cotton features an 8-pound weight that can conform to your body—without trapping body heat. Per the brand, this guy was intended to be used "European Style," where it’s hefty enough to use on its own (without an extra blanket or quilt) while still offering maximum breathability. “I have gone through SO much bedding trying to keep myself cool and my husband warm. He crawled into bed the first night and immediately said he loved the warmth—and I loved that it didn’t make me hot,” one reviewer writes. Beyond that, many reviewers applaud its durability and oversized fit, where one person writes: “Being a huge king blanket (120 inches by 120 inches) it is very large and there’s plenty coverage for two people…it also comes out perfectly [from the dryer] and is still very soft with no shrinkage.”

Sunday Citizen

Best Winter Comforter

11. Sunday Citizen Snug Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Double-sided design features microfiber and cooling bamboo, machine washable, available in 15 trendy colorways
  • What to Know Before Buying: Has a thicker feel overall, requires washing on low (or no spin cycle)

High body temperatures mean sweat, and sweat has the unfortunate tendency to cause undesirable smells. Lovely, right? The good news is that this ultra-plushy comforter features an innovative two-sided design, with fluffy microfiber fabric on top and naturally cooling, hypoallergenic viscose from bamboo underneath. More importantly: It’s completely machine washable, so you can hit the hay in a fresh-smelling (reversible) blanket that’s interchangeable with the seasons. “Having a two-sided comforter is awesome,” writes one reviewer. “We use the bamboo side for summer and it’s sooo soft and cooling! [The other side] also makes me excited for winter, knowing I get to lay in [plushy] bed and snuggle up to a cozy, cuddly [microfiber].”


Best Year-Round Comforter

12. Molecule Year Round Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Hefty feel features cooling Technology, hypoallergenic, OEKO-TEX Certified, doesn’t irritate sensitive skin, fibers absorb moisture
  • What to Know Before Buying: Not a lightweight option, offers free returns within 90 days

Made from cotton and Tencel with an eco-friendly filling designed to regulate moisture and heat, the MOLECULE Year Round Comforter is another hypoallergenic option that can be used during any season—hot or cold. “As a middle-aged woman, I was on the hunt for [something] that would help with the side effects of menopause, night sweats and hot flashes. [This] comforter feels heavenly and has help me tremendously. It has the feel of a weighted blanket and makes me feel like my momma is hugging me. I feel like I’m sleeping in a fluffy, cool, heavenly cloud,” one reviewer writes. Add in free standard shipping and returns within 90 days, there’s really nothing to lose and many great nights’ sleep to gain.

Comma Home

Best Comforter for Couples

13. Comma Eucalyptus Lyocell Comforter

  • Why We Love It: 100 percent eucalyptus lyocell fabric is naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial, filling is made from recycled materials, prevents night sweats, machine washable
  • What to Know Before Buying: May not be thick enough to use as an all-season option, 30-day returns

Another comforter that’s versatile enough to meet your (and your partner’s) needs? This Eucalyptus number from Comma. It’s made from 100 percent eucalyptus lyocell, which is touted to be “softer than silk and cool to the touch,” per the brand, and it’s inside filling (which is made from recycled water bottles) is designed as a one sheet, “so you won’t see excess fluff randomly bunching up in the corner.” So, how does it hold up after a year? Here’s what one reviewer had to say: “It has minimal pilling, is relatively easy to wash and has held up [in the wash after] being used nightly. I run hot and get very uncomfortable in bed if the temperature is above 71 degrees. At that temp, I'm usually not using the comforter all the way up to my shoulders/chin, but I keep it across my legs. In the winter, this thing is absolutely perfect. I named this review ‘middle of the road’ because that's what I feel like it is: the comforter than meets both my needs as a hot sleeper and my girlfriend's needs who sleeps buried under the comforter wearing a hoodie and shorts in the July. Like [other reviewers] I agree that it is extremely soft and cushy, like being cuddled by a cloud!”


Best Comforter Under $40

14. Linenspa Down Alternative Quilted Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Microfiber fill is lightweight and breathable, works as either a duvet insert or a stand-alone comforter, hypoallergenic, selection of colors and patterns for any and all aesthetics
  • What to Know Before Buying: Some reviewers say you get what you pay for, so if you’re looking for a long-term option, this may not be for you, machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle

Made from 100 percent polyester and a microfiber down alternative fill, the Linenspa All-Season Down Alternative Comforter is one of Amazon’s best-sellers with more than 26,000 five-star reviews. According to reviewers, this lightweight and hypoallergenic comforter gives the best of all worlds: light yet fluffy, while staying cool in the winter and warm (but not too much so) in the summer. Take it from one person, who writes: “I find [this comforter to be] fluffy and lightweight [with] a cozy warmth. I am using it in cool summer weather and it’s perfect, [where] I’m comfortable without any feeling of extra-weight…The weightlessness [is great for cooling] where the filling provides an enveloping warmth [that doesn’t overpower].” Plus, for under $40, with Prime delivery and free returns, you really can’t sleep on this deal.

Gravity Blanket

Best Weighted Comforter

15. Gravity Weighted Cooling Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Available in three weights, moisture-wicking fabric, hypoallergenic, cover buttons, zips onto inner blanket
  • What to Know Before Buying: It’s recommended that you only wash the weighted insert by hand (and the duvet cover is machine-washable with non-chlorine bleach)

“Feeling stressed? Gravity’s cooling weighted blanket can theoretically increase serotonin and melatonin and decrease cortisol by using deep pressure stimulation to replicate the feeling of being held or hugged,” writes senior editor Dana Dickey. “The breathable moisture-wicking polyester cover does more than just wick away heat (and consequently, stress and anxiety); it actually allows air to move in and around your body. So you’ll get the pluses of having blanket weight, without the overheated-in-your-coat-in-a-crowded-elevator feeling.” It’s also worth mentioning that Gravity conducted a 2019 sleep study, where 72 percent of participants reported deeper, more restful sleep and 76 percent reported falling asleep faster when using the Gravity Blanket. And on top of its stress-reducing properties, it includes gridded stitching that ensures the glass beads remain uniformly distributed (and don’t shift if you toss and turn in your sleep).


Best Plush Comforter

16. Amerisleep Recover+ Cooling Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Uses special technology to increase circulation and reduce heat, available in three sizes, moisture control, silky smooth fabric,
  • What to Know Before Buying: Machine wash the insert in cold water and tumble dry it with low heat, comes with a one year warranty

Let's face it, when it comes to getting a solid night's sleep, comfort is key. After all, who wants to jump into a bed with scratchy fabric? Not us. Enter: Amerisleep's Recover+ Cooling Comforter. It's equipped with regulating tech to prevent overheating and is constructed with a snuggly blend of cotton, lyocell and polyester that is so soft against your skin. We give it bonus points for its plush feel and ability to increase blood circulation as you sleep, where it uses Recover+ technology to turn body heat into infrared energy and keep you snug as a bug from night until morning. “We live in Florida, [and] this blanket is great,” one reviewer says. “I don't get warm—[despite the fact that I’m a hot sleeper]—and my husband loves [how] it has just enough weight to it. He says it makes it cozier without trapping in heat.”

Sijo Home

Best Hypoallergenic Comforter

17. Sijo AiryWeight Comforter

  • Why We Love It: 100 percent eucalyptus materials are naturally hypoallergenic, coated with a finish that slows the spread of bacteria, soft and breathable,
  • What to Know Before Buying: Dry clean only, 30-day trial period

With a Eucalyptus-fiber construction that’s naturally cooling, this comforter is uniquely hypoallergenic, so it’s resistant to dust, mite, and mold (so you can sleep without the sniffles). The materials are naturally super breathable, according to the brand, where its antibacterial properties are 1). great for sensitive skin, and 2). cool, soft and moisture-wicking by design. Plus, this comforter also features a silver ion, anti-microbial treatment, which slows the spread of microorganisms like bacteria and fungi. “I am so glad I purchased the eucalyptus comforter. I have been sleeping better as my body temperature stays even and perfectly comfortable! It is soft like a dream. I also have allergies and asthma and I am breathing better at night with this wrapped around me,’ one reviewer writes. Another adds: “The snap ties are really well done too—there's no sliding around of the insert at all if you put on the cover using the inside-out method, attaching all the ties.”


Best Decorative Comforter

18. Coyuchi Diamond-Stitched Comforter

  • Why We Love It: Made from cooling crinkled percale cotton, double-needle diamond-shaped quilting holds the fill in place, machine washable, available in four colorways
  • What to Know Before Buying: Fabric softeners and dryer sheets reduce the absorbency of cotton textiles and are not recommended, might be too heavy for warmer months

This trendy, year-round comforter can be used on its own (it's attractive enough, in blue, white or undyed colorways) or layered with a duvet cover for extra winter warmth. It’s made from crinkled percale fabric—which keeps you cool and comfy under its 360 GSM weight—and the GOTS-certified, shell fabric is naturally breathable and toxin free (aka great for anyone with allergies or sensitive skin). “[This comforter has] a nice thickness to give the bed a bit of ‘puff’ which I like. I thought it would be less insulating than down, because I live in the southeast, where it is very hot and humid. [Even when] we set our thermostat to 69-degrees, [I] still found this to be warm and [at times, almost] too heavy in the middle of the night…[still], if you live in a cooler climate, I think you’ll really enjoy this [stunning] comforter,” writes one reviewer. Bonus: The double-needle stitching keeps the all-cotton batting in place, and it's easy to store in a reusable cotton bag.


Best Comforter Set

19. Bedsure Cooling Comforter Set

  • Why We Love It: Reversible microfiber designer works for both warm and cool sleepers, set comes in 17 different colors and includes two pillow shams, machine washable (cold and gentle)
  • What to Know Before Buying: It’s air dry only; might not be durable enough to use season-after-season (without replacing)

Two-sided comfort is the level of cozy you deserve and exactly what you’d get with this Bedsure Warm & Cooling Comforter Set. While one side of this 100 percent microfiber comforter is cooling and breathable, the other is warm and soft. “I am a person who always needs a heavier blanket when I sleep, even in the summer months. This allows me to sleep comfortable with the cooling side, not to satiny slick, but just enough smoothness to offer the cooling effect,” one Amazon customer writes. Reviewers also share how the pillowcases (yes, this is a full set) are a great addition: “The shams have a nice large fold over which hugs the pillow and prevents pillow from showing,” one person adds. Oh, and thanks to Prime delivery, you can have this under $50 set in just two days—and return it for free if it doesn’t live up to your expectations.

avocado green mattress

Best Organic Comforter

20. Avocado Green Alpaca Duvet Insert

  • Why We Love It: Made with GOLS-certified cotton percale and alpaca fibers, naturally temperature regulating and moisture resistant, comes in two weights
  • What to Know Before Buying: Spot clean only, 100-night trial and one-year warranty.

As far as sustainability goes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find something more eco-friendly—not to mention comfortable—than this comforter by Avocado. Awarded the Greenguard Gold seal of acceptance by UL Environment (which few products qualify for), this comforter is rigorously tested for chemical exposure and pollutants (such as VOCs), formaldehyde and phthalates. It’s filled with GOLS-certified cotton percale (aka the best cooling cotton) and it’s cased with alpaca fibers that are renowned for supreme breathability, wicking, and thermoregulating properties. “I am very happy with [this] lightweight, organic cotton cover. It feels great, and the quality is high… The alpaca [fibers] feels just right, and so far, I’ve been cozy on cool nights (with temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees),” writes one reviewer. That said, they also warn: “In the beginning there was a bit of wooly smell (that I did not find bothersome), and it’s not noticeable to me [at all] now.”
