Do mattress protectors make you sweat?

Sweating in bedMattress protectors are designed to protect the mattress from things such as sweat, stains, and dirt, to lengthen the lifetime usage of a mattress. However, the waterproof barrier provided by the mattress protector can make some people feel hot or sweaty, especially if they are already prone to overheating whilst sleeping.

If you are concerned that the mattress protector might increase sweating in the night, perhaps you could try a draw sheet placed under the bed sheet instead. Draw sheets don’t have a waterproof layer but instead absorb any dampness caused by sweating. You could also consider a bed pad which although it has a waterproof layer inside, has a comfortable fabric outer cover and can absorb an enormous amount of liquid and damp.
