The 3 Best Mattress Toppers on Amazon
The most precious thing you can get in life is a night of blissful, undisturbed sleep, right? But if your mattress is too soft…or too firm…or too lumpy, suddenly you’re tossing and turning. Enter these three queen-size mattress toppers that can turn any old bed into a bona-fide haven.
Editors’ Pick: Pure Green three-Inch 100% Natural Latex Mattress Topper (Queen)
- Natural latex is more supportive than memory foam
- Latex stays naturally cool
- Perfect for side sleepers who are suffering from hip and shoulder pain
When it comes to mattress toppers, there’s a little bit of a Goldilocks effect—it takes some trial and error to find the right one. But PureWow’s VP of content, Jillian, did all the testing for us, trying literally everything on the market to alleviate her back pain: “After suddenly developing a lower back problem in my mid-30s, I was desperate to find a fix so that I wouldn't wake up every morning in pain—and I didn't want to have to buy an entirely new mattress. Clearly, finding the perfect mattress topper is a very personal choice, but I loved the way this three-inch latex number totally transformed the firmness of my bed—from way too soft to just right. And because it's latex, there's none of that sinking feeling you get with memory foam; it bounces right back to its initial shape.”
Best Value: LUCID Four-Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper (Queen)
- Cradles your body and relieves painful pressure points
- Gel material captures and distributes heat
- Ventilated design improves airflow and breathability
If you want a memory foam feel without the pricey Tempur-pedic price, this budget-friendly topper was made for you. Its gel material adds a soft layer that provides a deeper sink to cradle your body while you sleep and also keeps you cool by distributing heat throughout, rather than trapping it beneath you—all for about $100. We’re sold.
Splurge-Worthy: Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR Supreme 3-Inch Premium Foam Mattress Topper (Queen)
- Designed with the same pressure-relieving material found in the Tempur-Pedic mattress
- Washable, allergen-resistant cover
- Evenly distributes body weight and helps relieve pressure points
If you've ever been tempted by a Tempur-Pedic, but don't want to shell out for one, this mattress topper is the way to go. One PureWow staffer swears by hers, saying, "I always looked forward to sleeping in the guest room at my boyfriend's parents' house. The bed was firmer than a memory foam mattress, which I liked, but still had that soft, body-molding feel on top. When his mom told me that the secret to her success was a Tempur-Pedic mattress topper, I ordered one the next day. Not only is it so comfortable that I now just refer to my bed as 'the squish,' it's also extended the life on my otherwise pretty sad, seventeen-year old mattress."
