Make sure your sheets are made out of breathable materials. Anything 100% cotton usually lets more air through. Polyester blends tend to trap heat so watch out for those.

My husband hates foam mattresses for that exact reason – they make him way too hot.  So I got rid of my foam topper and got a better quality mattress pad (something a little more padded than the cheap ones).  We use high-thread count cotton sheets (because they do a better job absorbing sweat) with a lightweight quilt in the summer, and in the winter we use a comforter with a duvet.

We have bamboo sheets.  They keep me cool, but have a nice weight to them.

We have 600 count sateen finish (not satin) sheets from Kohl’s… they were about $60 on sale, but worth every penny.  They always feel cool and crisp.

It may be the topper.

When we first bought our memory foam (very expensive) bed, we were soooo hot.  I never used to sweat in my sleep, but suddenly we were sweating up a storm and I hated it. 

Either I’ve adjusted or something has changed over time….so maybe you will get used to it? (The ‘getting used to it’ period took a very very long time for me).

Percale sheets are cool and crisp.
