We spend a third of our lives asleep, yet many of us still treat our bedding as an afterthought. Sleep is incredibly important – it’s the time when your body repairs and refreshes itself – and if you’re having trouble getting a full night’s rest and find that other solutions aren’t helping, your mattress may be the culprit. Which is why picking up one of the best memory foam mattress toppers can be so beneficial.

You may not have the desire to drop a bunch of cash on a new mattress, however, with a good mattress topper, you may not have to. Modern material technologies like memory foam have made it easier to achieve a perfect night’s sleep, and to help you out, we’ve rounded up the top 10 mattress toppers you can buy right now. If you’re looking for more sleep aid products to help you get some better shut-eye, then you can also check out these great side-sleeper pillows and cooling pillows. (Looking for a mattress instead of a mattress topper? How do you know which one to buy? These are the best according to health experts.)

The Best Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Topper Supreme mattress topper

best mattress topper roundup

The Tempur-Pedic brand is all but synonymous with memory foam bedding, but you don’t have to pay a small fortune for a mattress to enjoy this premium material. The Tempur Supreme three-inch mattress topper can give you the comfort and support of Tempur-Pedic’s proprietary memory foam for a fraction of the price of a mattress. The Tempur-Topper Supreme mattress topper is on sale right now, too, starting at $254 for the twin size and going up to $382 for the king. You also get a Tempur-Pedic pillow (a $108 value) free with your purchase for a limited time, giving you a total combined savings of more than $150.

The Rest

Authentic Comfort 2-inch 5-zone mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

If all you want is a basic mattress topper, you don’t need to shell out a ton of cash (which is probably the reason you’re not buying a new mattress in the first place). The Authentic Comfort two-inch mattress topper is inexpensive, but unlike other cheap toppers, it’s more than just a flat slab of foam: It features a five-zone surface design to properly support your body’s pressure points and is made of breathable, odor-reducing orthopedic memory foam. Better still is its price, starting at just $11.50 for the twin size.

Lucid memory foam mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

Lucid makes some of the most highly rated memory foam mattress toppers as well as some of the most affordable ones. They’re available in different thicknesses, as well – two, three, and four inches – so you’ve got plenty of options to suit your needs and preferences. The Lucid mattress toppers are infused with temperature-controlling gel to help keep you cooler while you sleep, and the memory foam is also ventilated for some additional heat relief. These no-nonsense gel memory foam mattress toppers start at $45 for the two-inch twin size model to as much as $142 for the beefy four-inch California king size.

If you’re in the market for some comfortable gel memory foam, this mattress pad is an excellent option. Whether you’re a side sleeper or deal with regular hip pain, a memory foam mattress topper from Lucid may be exactly what you need.

Milliard 2-inch egg crate memory foam mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

This two-inch thick mattress topper from Milliard features a unique yet simple design, with its egg crate-like surface that delivers pressure relief for hip pain as well as your sides and back. This surface shape and ventilation channels also promotes air flow, keeping the mattress topper breathable and your sleep a bit more comfortable, and it’s CertiPur certified to be made of hypoallergenic and anti-microbial materials. The Milliard egg crate memory foam topper is currently available for as low as $40 for the twin size.

Unlike many feather mattress toppers or down-alternative mattress toppers, this option from Milliard is made to deal with those irritating pressure points that end up causing you pain.

DreamFoam 2-inch memory foam mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

Another simple yet unique memory foam mattress topper is this top-rated two-inch gel swirl topper from Dreamfoam. The gel-swirled viscose-elastic memory foam keeps sleepers cool and is quite soft – perfect for adding a bit of plushness to a too-hard mattress – and, like the Milliard pad, it’s CertiPur-certified. Another nice touch is that the Dreamfoam memory foam mattress topper is made entirely in the U.S. and comes with a three-year warranty. It’s not too expensive, either, with prices starting at just $55 for the twin XL and queen size models with larger sizes all ringing in at less than $120.

Sleep Innovations 4-inch dual layer mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

Most of our picks are in the two- and three-inch thickness range, but if you want something heftier, then check out this four-inch mattress topper from Sleep Innovations. Its dual-layer design features both a gel-infused memory foam pad and a stuffed cover, giving you the pressure-relieving properties of foam and the softness of down-like filling. The whole thing is made in the U.S. and comes with a 10-year warranty. Starting at $118 for the twin size, the Sleep Innovations dual-layer mattress pad is one of our more expensive picks, but it’s not a bad deal considering you’re getting two toppers in one.

Memory Foam Alternatives

Duck and Goose Co. synthetic down 2-inch mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

It’s not memory foam, but if you want a pillowy, down-like mattress pad, then this overfilled topper from Duck and Goose ticks all the boxes: It’s stuffed with a soft, fluffy microfiber filling, it’s 100 percent hypoallergenic (no feathers here), and its gusseted design keeps it smooth and allows for airflow to keep you cool at night. The Duck and Goose down mattress topper comes with a 10-year warranty and rings in at $64 for the twin size or up to $90 for the king size.

If you have an old mattress that you aren’t ready to get rid of or a memory foam mattress that just doesn’t get the job done, this fiber-filled mattress pad is a great option.

ExceptionalSheets bamboo-derived rayon mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

Bamboo-derived rayon is an interesting material that’s growing in popularity for bedding thanks to its temperature-controlling and hypoallergenic properties. The ExceptionalSheets rayon mattress topper is a prime example of this, offering down-like comfort that’s supremely soft and breathable. The 100-percent hypoallergenic Revoloft filling provides all the plushness of goose feathers without the irritation that comes from allergens and airborne contaminants. The ExceptionalSheets bamboo-derived rayon mattress topper is made in the U.S., too, and pricing starts at $90 for the twin model.

Bluestone 4-inch down feather mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

Synthetic fillers are great if you have allergies and/or asthma, but sometimes, you can’t beat the real thing. If you’ve just gotta have genuine down feathers, then look no further than this four-inch mattress topper from Bluestone. This featherbed mattress topper is filled with genuine duck and down feathers inside a 100-percent cotton 233-thread count cover. If you don’t want any synthetic materials, the Bluestone down feather mattress topper is the one to buy and one of the more affordable featherbed options out there, starting at $80 for the twin size.

Pure Green natural latex mattress topper

best mattress toppers 2018

Latex is a rubberized material that has a lot of uses, although you might not have seen it used in bedding. The benefits of a natural latex mattress topper like this one from Pure Green are numerous, though: It’s soft and flexible, it’s durable, and – perhaps most importantly, at least for sleepers with allergies – it’s hypoallergenic. This topper, in particular, is also ventilated to help keep you cool at night if you’re a sweaty sleeper. The two-inch Pure Green natural latex mattress topper starts at $99 for the twin-sized version and goes up to $159 for the king size (other thicknesses are also available).
