The Best Mattress Toppers for a Better Night's Sleep
Pad your bed with one of these comfort boosters.
A mattress is a major purchase—and it's an item that plays a major role in your life (you'll spend quite a bit of time on it). Unfortunately, it's difficult to know if the mattress you do buy is the right one for you until you sleep on it. After some time, you might realize that the one you selected doesn't fall into that Goldilocks zone; maybe it's a little too firm for your liking. Luckily, all is not lost. To add a little bit of plushness to your bed, simply finish off your existing mattress with a topper.
Mattress toppers come in all kinds of firmness levels and materials, which means you'll be able to fully customize your sleep experience even after you've brought your mattress home. From memory foam iterations that mold to your form to feather-filled or wool options that offer soft support and insulation, there's a covering to suit your specific needs, whatever they are. Finding the correct one is where the challenge lies. That's where we come in—to help you on your search for a more comfortable slumber, we went ahead and rounded up several diverse options.
As we began our research, we realized that there is so much more to mattress toppers than hard or soft or foam or down—there are sustainably-sourced types as well as ones composed of hypoallergenic or dust-resistant materials to suit those with allergies or skin sensitives. So, before you spend another uncomfortable night tossing and turning on an unforgiving mattress, scoop up a topper. They'll make sliding into bed at the end of a long day that much better.
You will feel transported to cloud nine on this 550 fill-power topper. The pad is made with a dual-chamber design that combines two full layers of luxury; the outer layer is made from pure cotton.
