How to Choose a Mattress Topper
11 Aug 2021 2 Min Read by Lucid

A mattress is a big investment, and sometimes it’s just not the right time to buy one. That’s where a mattress topper comes in. Mattress toppers are an affordable option to refresh your mattress, or if you already love your mattress, toppers can add another level of that comfort you crave. Especially if you and your partner prefer a different mattress feel. With several inches of unassuming softness, this mattress upgrade is easy. But with so many options, finding a topper is not. To make it simple, we’ve put together a guide of everything you need to know on how to choose a mattress topper for your whole family.

Decide on a Thickness

Let’s start with the basics. Most mattress toppers range from two to four inches in thickness, so a good rule of thumb is the thinner the topper is the firmer the feel. A two-inch mattress topper will sleep firmer than a four-inch topper. If you’re looking for a plushier feel and more support opt for a thicker topper like a four-inch. This thicker version is best if you’re looking to revitalize your mattress.


A Brief Guide to Sleep Positions

1. Side Sleepers

Side sleepers benefit from a plushier mattress. Think the thicker the better, it’ll really help with any pressure points for sweet relief.

2. Stomach Sleepers

Sleeping on your stomach can cause spine misalignment and added stress to your neck and back. Opt for a thin mattress topper to encourage spine alignment.

3. Back Sleepers

Similar, to stomach sleepers, back sleepers need a thinner mattress topper. Look for a firmer feel for a better night’s sleep.


Types of Mattress Topper Materials  


Gel Infused

Sleep cooler with a gel-infused mattress topper. The innovative gel captures and distributes heat, so you can sleep more comfortably.


Lavender Infused

Embrace the calm, relaxing scent of a lavender mattress topper in your bedroom. The natural scent creates a soothing space to fall asleep in.


Bamboo Charcoal Infused

Made with moisture-regulating properties, bamboo charcoal-infused mattress toppers control odors to create a fresher and cleaner sleep.  


Standard Memory Foam

Memory foam is great for spine alignment. The foam compresses and conforms to your body to relieve those pressure points.


Whether you’re a side, back, or stomach sleeper, there’s a mattress topper made for your entire family.
