Q: We have a Sicily mattress and are finding it incredibly hot to sleep on. Is it possible to turn this mattress over and sleep on the side without the memory foam on it ? Question from Rob Siddall


The main reason that foam mattresses can get warm is that they are designed to put your body as close to the foam as possible so you get the best levels of support. Foam is a good insulator, which means the sleep experience can feel a little warmer as it absorbs your body heat without dispersing it.

Try using good quality cotton sheets and a lighter weight duvet to see if that helps.
