Best Mattress Toppers 2020 Reviews and Buying Guide
A comfortable mattress is key to a good night’s sleep, but buying a new one can be pricey and inconvenient. The good news is that a mattress topper can be an easy fix to make your bed much more comfortable to sleep on. It’s also ideal for situations when you’re not at home (like in a college dorm or a care facility) because it’s easier to transport than a mattress. The right mattress topper can give you pillow-like softness if your bed is too hard, or add firmness if you need more support. There are even cooling options if your mattress gives you night sweats and ones with pressure-relieving memory foam for people with back pain.

We reviewed each one’s features and benefits, then narrowed down the picks to brands that have performed well in our mattress evaluations and popular toppers with unique features and rave reviews from users.

What to Look for in a Mattress Topper
ThicknessThe thicker a mattress topper is, the more added cushion it will provide. Some thin options are 1 to 2 inches thick, and will do just fine if you simply want a little bit of added comfort on your bed. On the other hand, some mattress pads can be up to 6 inches thick — ideal if your bed is incredibly uncomfortable.
MaterialMattress toppers can be made with a variety of materials, including different types of foam, down feathers, and regular pillow material. There are pros and cons to the different options: For instance, memory foam often has an odor at first, while down toppers may lose feathers over time. Consider the positives and negatives of each material before making a decision.
Temperature regulationDo you tend to get hot at night? Certain mattress toppers regulate body heat better than others, so consider this while shopping. Specifically, memory foam is known to retain heat, which can cause you to get too warm during the night, while down feathers are significantly better at maintaining a normal temperature.
