13. A charcoal bamboo foam topper to help regulate moisture, temperature, and odor.
Hypoallergenic, and infused with bamboo and charcoal.
Promising review: “Great Scott! When I get fired for not coming into work, can I sue this company? I ask because man, I do NOT want to get out of bed in the morning. I purchased the queen size, and I am not joking about this; I have slept better since putting this on my bed (and no, I did not wait the suggested 48 hours) than I have in years! I have sleep apnea, and if I lay on my right side, my hip starts to hurt, and if I lay on my left side, my sinuses clog up on that side making breathing difficult. With this mattress topper, I am able to actually lay on my back and fall asleep for the first time in years!” —Danny
14. A natural latex topper for soft but supportive firmness, without synthetic fillers.
Made of 100% natural latex foam.
Promising review: “Can’t recommend this enough. I have this 3” latex soft topper on both of my beds now — bedroom and daybed. I need a firm support mattress, but my joints hate it. With the soft toppers, I get to keep my firm mattress support, but the topper makes it feel like I’m sleeping on a cloud. It’s so comfortable I look forward to bedtime or siesta. I put a nice TV in the bedroom a few years ago, but I haven’t been able to watch a single thing because I fall asleep within a minute or two of climbing into bed. If you have problems getting comfortable on a firm bed, don’t make the mistake of buying a soft mattress that will offer poor support. Just get a soft topper! Your body will thank you. I use a deep mattress cover and BedVoyage bamboo sheets (deep corners), which only add to the comfort level.” —M. Spalding
15. Best Mattress Pad thicc down-alternative topper with stretchy bands to keep the pillowy surface in place.
Measures 2-inch thick and made of hypoallergenic down-alternative fiber filling.
Promising review: “AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!! Believe this or not, I spent the money on a memory foam mattress that the salesman said was ‘tailored’ to someone with my back and neck problems. The memory foam was the most uncomfortable surface I have ever lain on, and if you spend too much time on one side, that side’s shoulder starts to hurt. I bought this pillow-top mattress cover, and wish I had gotten it in ’06 when I bought the mattress, and instead of the mattress. If you want a mattress top that cushions where you need cushioning, and lets you snuggle down into it when you sleep. this is IT!” —Matthew M
