Mattress Topper Guide
Mattress toppers are one of the most common and affordable ways to renew and add comfort to your mattress. If your mattress is sleeping too firm, too warm or doesn’t feel supportive enough, mattress toppers are often an affordable solution. Wondering how to choose a mattress topper? In this Mattress Topper Guide, we’ll explore a number of mattress topper options and what features to look for before choosing one.
Features to Look for in a Mattress Topper
Mattress toppers are most commonly made out of flexible materials such as memory foam, polyfoam or latex, though you can also find toppers made of feathers and wool. It is important to consider the materials used to make your mattress topper to ensure it addresses your sleep needs. To ensure you make the most out of your sleep setup, checkout the four BedInABox® mattress toppers.
3" CoolRest® Topper
Made with CoolRest® Gel memory foam, the 3” CoolRest® Topper is a perfect choice for those looking to soften their sleep. This mattress topper comes with a sustainable, breathable soft knit Tencel® cover that wicks away moisture, and the 3” layer of memory foam provides perfect support and comfort that accommodates all sleep positions. The CoolRest® Topper is available in seven sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, RV Sleeper, king, and California King.
3" CoolRest® Reversible
Similar to the original CoolRest® Topper, the 3” CoolRest® Reversible comes with the added benefit of being reversible to accommodate your support needs. One side features a softer, 1.5” comfort layer with CoolRest® memory foam, while the other side includes a 1.5” support layer of Sure Align® density support foam for a firmer feel. The CoolRest® Reversible is also available in seven sizes.

Reasons to Buy a Mattress Topper
A high quality mattress topper can be an affordable way to soften your sleep, keep you sleeping cool and extend the life of your mattress.
Soften Your Mattress
Mattress toppers can breathe new life into older mattresses by adding a few inches of comfort and support. Memory foam mattress toppers are commonly used to add depth and support, whether you prefer soft or firm support.
Provide Cooler Sleep
If you tend to sleep hot, certain mattress toppers are designed to keep you cool. BedInABox® CoolRest® Mattress Toppers have layers of memory foam infused with cooling technologies to promote temperature regulation. Paired with cooling sheets or mattress protectors, a mattress topper can extend the cooling comfort of your sleep setup.
Prolong the Life of Your Mattress
Mattresses are generally built to last about 8-10 years, though this range differs depending on the material. One way to prolong the life of your mattress and ensure it reaches its full potential is to use a mattress topper. The topper serves as an extra layer that can slow down the wear and tear your mattress may be subject to.
Care & Maintenance of Your Mattress Topper
Like any other part of your bed, properly caring for and maintaining your mattress topper helps keep it clean and last for years to come. No matter the material, we recommend only using gentle cleaning agents, such as a DIY solution made of baking soda, vinegar, or simple dish soap and water. Using gentle cleaners helps maintain the integrity of the mattress topper and avoid discoloring. You can also use a vacuum to easily remove dust or crumbs.
Most mattress toppers should be cleaned at least 2-3 times a year. If you are using a liquid solution, be sure not to soak the mattress topper through, but instead gently blot problem spots or the entire topper and allow it to dry, preferably in a sunny spot or under a fan. To further keep your mattress topper clean, we recommend pairing it with a BedInABox® mattress protector. To help guarantee a healthy night’s sleep, it is crucial to regularly care for and clean your mattress topper, in addition to other parts of your bed such as your mattress, pillows, and sheets.
