These are the 6 Best Mattress Toppers

Viscosoft Serene Hybrid Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Mattress toppers come in two options fiberfill or foam. This mattress topper combines both, so you can get the best of both. The bottom layer is 2.5 inches thick and features gel-infused memory foam. This provides pressure relief. It also has a machine-washable cover with a down alternative fill that provides soft comfort and support. This pillow top is ideal for those who need a quick upgrade to their bed but aren’t sure whether they should use a supportive foam fill or a plush one.

It has a strap that attaches the foam and pillow top layers to the cover, as well as fitted sides with elastic bands to secure it on your bed. It can fit deep mattresses up to 18 inches in height. Although it was a little difficult to set up initially, users said that it held its place and didn’t shift during use. It also felt significantly better, according to our test. The brand also offers a 60-day refund policy.

Lucid Down Alternative and Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Another hybrid mattress topper, this one combines fiberfill and foam for support and pillow-top comfort. It’s also available on Amazon at a lower price and with Prime shipping. The top layer contains pockets of down alternative padding and memory foam with gel infusions. The top layer is memory foam infused with gel and fits onto your bed as a fitted sheet. However, it does not have the strap to secure the layers together.

It measures four inches in height and has equal amounts of foam and pillow top. However, it is actually two separate pieces you can use either layering together or separately. The top layer of down that holds it together can be machine washed and dried in the dryer. It does not sleep hot, as some reviewers have noted.

Tuft & Needle Mattress Topper

If you prefer to sleep on your back, a memory foam mattress topper is the best choice. It takes the pressure off the places where you have the most weight, such as your hips or shoulders. Tuft & Needle’s two-inch foam is specifically made to provide cushioning and support, but not as much as a featherbed. This is due to the brand’s unique responsive foam, which is stronger and more durable than other foams without sinking in. It also has open cells that make it more breathable.

It doesn’t come with straps that you can tuck under your bed, but it does have a non-skid bottom to prevent it from moving around on your bed. The cover is made of a soft knit and prevents your sheets from bunching. This cover is not washable and cannot be removed for cleaning.

Nolah Mattress Topper

Nolah mattress users have reported that they relieve back, hip, and sciatica pain. This topper also uses the same brand’s signature AirFoam for superior pressure relief. AirFoam has been designed to dissipate heat more effectively than traditional memory foam, and to provide greater resilience to prevent sagging. There are two firmness levels available Luxury Firm, which is similar to a medium in the 5-7 out of 10 range, and Plush, which is a soft 3 of 10.

The corners have elastic bands that can be stretched to fix the topper to your mattress. The outer cover is made of organic cotton and can’t be removed for cleaning. Nolah offers free shipping and returns for 30 days. However, it usually ships in 5 to 7 business day. It may take up to a few weeks for it to arrive.

Sleep Number DualTemp Individual Layer

If you are more concerned about the temperature of your mattress than the feel, this innovative topper is the right solution. It’s temperature-controlled through a remote so you can choose between various levels of warm and cool. The floor unit sends cool or hot air through a tube to the thin mattress topper, which then spreads through the layer. The tube can be hidden under the sheet, so it doesn’t take up too much space.

This pad is expensive and will only fit half of the bed. If you want to have control over your side, you will need to purchase two pads. It’s still unique in that it allows couples to have a customized sleep temperature. This topper, unlike other toppers that have cooling technology that is limited and doesn’t last the night, keeps the cool (or warm!) air flowing throughout the night.

Avocado Green Organic Latex Mattress Topper

Many mattress toppers are made from synthetic materials such as memory foam and polyester fiberfill. But this one is certified organic by the Global Organic Latex Standard(GOLS) or Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS), so that you can be sure it adheres to strict standards during its manufacturing process. It’s not only organic but also high quality, so you don’t have to compromise on performance in order to be green.

Inside the topper is durable and resilient latex with temperature-regulating wool, and the outer cover is a soft and breathable cotton. There are two options for the firmness of the latex layer Firm for those who need support and resilience and plush for those who want cloud-like softness. A vegan version is also available with a cotton fill.
