Mattress Toppers Buying Guide

Most people choose mattress toppers to provide a different or elevated level of comfort for their existing mattress. In some cases, a topper can remedy a problem, such as a lumpy mattress. 

Types of Mattress Toppers

Types of Mattress Toppers

Toppers provide a variety of comfort and cushion options. They differ from a pad in that a topper is meant to cover just the top surface of the mattress. Thin elastic straps snag the corners of the mattress to hold it in place. This makes a topper an easily removable option. You can use it to enhance a guest bed, or place it on your own mattress for a seasonal option. Here are the different types.

Down or Synthetic Down

If you like a little extra warmth in the winter months, add a down-filled topper to your mattress. It has pockets or channels filled with down, a down-and-feather blend, or a polyester substance that mimics down.

Memory Foam

These toppers are nice if you like the feel of memory foam but don't want an entire mattress made of it.

Fleece

A cozy option, wool fleece is a topper that adds several inches of plushness to the top of a mattress.

Foam

A foam mattress topper, which can range from 2 to 4 inches thick, adds cushion to the top of a rigid mattress. It can provide a softer surface for someone with sensitive skin or tender muscles.

Cooling

A gel-filled topper absorbs body heat and cools the surface of the bed.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Before you buy a mattress topper, give these points some thought.

Down or Synthetic Down

Similar to a feather bed, these toppers are lofty and warm. They are best used during the cool seasons or in cold climates.

Memory Foam

Memory foam conforms to your body shape, hugging its curves and contours. It also absorbs vibration, making it a stable sleeping surface. If your partner tosses and turns, a memory foam topper can lessen the impact on you.

Fleece

This is a warm and snuggly mattress topper that may not provide enough support to someone with back or neck issues.

Foam

You can buy foam toppers with different texture zones, meaning you can place massaging bumps under your lower back. You can also choose from a variety of thicknesses, adding more or less cushion as needed.

Cooling

The gel coolant inside these toppers is a toxic substance, so check the warranty information to know what to do in case of a leak.
