Don't dread your bed: These cooling sheets, pillows, comforters and more are here to save you from dreaded summer stickiness. (Amazon)

Swimming pools? Love 'em. Pools of sweat? No thanks, especially when they're the kind you find yourself engulfed in after a particularly sweltering night. Some people, like myself, sleep hot year round — but once the temps start creeping up in the summer? Oof, it's a whole nother level of icky.

If you count yourself among us lucky ones (ha), don't despair because there's an abundance of cooling bedding on the market specifically designed with us perspiration warriors in mind. Build a comfier, cooler bed with these sheets, pillows, comforters and other sticky, sweaty night solutions, many of which have been tested and approved by myself and other Yahoo staffers. Don't worry, the prices won't make you sweat either — several of these picks are on sale right now.

A cozy Earth sounds nice, but we'll settle for a cozy bed — and these soft, silky, cooling linens deliver. This set has wowed everyone from Yahoo staffers and thousands of online shoppers to — wait for it — Oprah herself. Yahoo writer Rebecca Carhart, who searched high and low to find the best cooling sheets, awarded the Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set the title of "Best Bamboo Cooling Sheets," saying, "Made from 100% premium viscose from bamboo, these temperature-regulating Cozy Earth sheets are designed to get softer with every wash. The breathable and moisture-wicking fabric feels a few degrees cooler than cotton blend options and is produced using enhanced weaving techniques to prevent pilling."

Another Yahoo writer, Ellie Conley, is also a fan. In her review, she writes, "Slipping into bed with Cozy Earth's sheets feels almost like jumping into a pool on a hot summer day."

And what does Oprah have to say about the sheets she made famous? When they appeared on her Favorite Things 2018 list, she said, "Your bed shouldn’t be where you sweat the small (or big) stuff," and called the set "the softest ever," saying it "may help regulate body temperature, meaning both chilly sleepers and hot-flashers can get a good night’s rest."

Plush and oh-so-popular, this all-season duvet insert is ultra lightweight, yet cozy. I first felt this supremely soft blanket at my sister's house, and immediately told her to send me the product link so I could buy one for myself. I've always been more of a comforter person — I hate making things more complicated than they have to be and never feel like dealing with duvet covers — but my quilt was looking shabby and I figured I might as well try something new. This insert is Oeko-Tex Standard 100-certified, feels like it's barely there and never makes me sweat. It has a box-stitch design to help keep the filling evenly distributed, and I haven't noticed any shifting. Plus, it's ridiculously affordable.

I opted for classic white, but it comes in 18 colors — and I'm tempted to grab a few more for my guest room.

These No. 1 bestselling pillows are cult favorites of Amazon shoppers, and Yahoo readers can't stop scooping them up, either. After having heard nothing but raves about them for years, I finally bought a pair to see what all the hype was about. Fair warning: They come vacuum-sealed, so when you first see them, you'll think, There's no way these will be comfortable. But give 'em a few hours, and they fluff up beautifully. I was impressed by how soft yet supportive they feel, and was pleased to find that their breathable construction kept me from waking up with sweaty hair. Now I want to replace every pillow in my house with these.

Psst: Another Yahoo writer also swears by them — check out her full Beckham Hotel Collection Bed Pillows review for more.

Stiff mattress? Give it a little facelift courtesy of Amazon's No. 1 bestselling sleep surface, which is 30% off for Prime Day. Made of gel-infused memory foam, this was designed to conform to your body's shape for customized support, helping to alleviate stress on pressure points. Upon arrival, it'll likely look flat and limp, but take it out of the package and air it out for 1-2 days, and it'll expand. If your current mattress is feeling a little too unforgiving lately, this will act as a slightly cushy surface without making you feel like you're being swallowed.

The gel it's infused with is described as being "cooling," as it's meant to draw heat away from your body (though it might not exactly feel cool to the touch). And if sleeping hot is a concern of yours, you'll want to opt for the two-inch version over the three-inch, as thicker memory foam can feel warmer. 

As far as quality is concerned, you can rest assured — pun intended — that this topper is CertiPUR-US certified. Plus, it comes with a three-year limited warranty.
