Try a Mattress Topper for Instant Comfort

·5 min read

Dealing with an ache in your back or constant soreness on your side? A mattress topper can get you back to sweet dreams and restful nights without breaking the bank. If you’ve been considering a full-on mattress replacement, but aren’t ready to commit just yet, there’s really no need when the mattress topper exists. “Primarily, mattress toppers can give a current mattress a new feel without completely replacing the mattress,” says Russell Jelinek, director of product engineering at Casper. “Usually, they are made of very soft layers that make the overall mattress and topper stack feel softer than a mattress alone. It can also create a new behavior, like a gooey memory foam, luxurious down, or a springy latex.”

Consider one of these options that range from comfy memory foam and Tempur-Pedic to sustainably sourced down-alternative organic wool to add a top layer that gives new life to your sleep.

All prices noted are for queen-size mattress toppers unless otherwise noted.

Nolah Mattress Topper

A pillowy layer made with cooling pressure relief? Yes, please. The Nolah mattress topper was created using AirFoam technology, which sleeps cool for those that have high body heat. It’s also made with hips and shoulders in mind to provide superior comfort by alleviating pressure in those areas. This two-inch-thick topper has secure elastic bands to place over your mattress and even comes with an optimal cushioning organic cotton cover. Use it as an added bonus to a new mattress from the brand–the Nolah Original–for maximum comfort and extra support.
