Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Cooling Topper

Best For: Restful Sleep
This two-inch foam topper is crafted from the same luxurious cooling fabric found on the brand's premium mattresses. And, in addition to increased sleep support and breathability, it also comes with four built-in corner straps for optimal stay-in-place security.

The Hype: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "Made our mattress 1000 times more comfortable. We had purchased a mattress from another company before learning of Nest. That mattress was way too firm for us, so we purchased this cooling topper from Nest (after feeling and loving it on a friend's bed). It was the best decision! What a huge difference! I wake up every morning so rested! I just never want to get out of bed!!!" – Erika, Nest Bedding Reviewer

Linenspa Gel Infused Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Best For: Affordable Sleep
This under-$50 option boasts over 11,000 reviews and Choice status on Amazon. Crafted out of ultra-plush memory foam that's infused with temperature-regulating gel beads, the two- to three-inch toppers are designed to provide pressure-relief and spine-allignment support.

The Hype: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "Instant comfort upgrade. We bought an inexpensive memory foam bed for my daughter's guest room to sleep on when we visit. It seemed OK in the store, but we found it waaaay too firm once we slept on it a few times. We didn't want to spend the money on a new mattress we use so infrequently, so we decided to go the mattress topper route instead. This was a great solution. The topper expanded to full size in about 4 hours (they recommend up to 24), and we slept much better than we ever have before on that bed. No aches or pains getting up, and no motion transfer during the night. I didn't notice any smell, even upon first opening the packaging. This was a very affordable solution to an overly firm mattress problem that I would highly recommend to anyone." – Cowboy Bob, Amazon Reviewer

Layla Memory Foam Topper

Best For: Soft But Supportive Sleep
If you're in the market for a sleep experience described as "like adding an extra layer of clouds to a bed already made of cotton candy," then Laya's topper crafted from cooling, copper-gel-infused memory foam has your number.

The Hype: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "We've had it a couple of months now and this thing seriously transformed our Costco mattress (the wife and I were a little let down by the firmness of it). Adding this gave it that plush feel we were looking for. It helped a ton with side sleeping and laying on my back is more comfortable as well." – Charles J, Layla Reviewer

Coop Home Goods Flip Mattress Topper

Best For: Firm OR Soft Sleep
This 4-inch memory foam topper packs reversible powers that offer the option of both soft and firm support — plus, it also comes bundled with a 100% waterproof mattress protector, 100-night sleep trial, and five-year limited warranty.

The Hype: 5 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "We recently decided that our mattress was too soft and had been mattress shopping. After getting a price quote way out of our budget, we decided to go back to the drawing board to find something more affordable for the time being. I loved the fact that you can flip this topper to be softer or firmer. So far, we have only used the firm side, but it made our bed exact support that we have been looking for without feeling like we were sleeping on the concrete floor! We really liked the cover that lets you strap the topper to your bed, it really keeps it in place instead of having it slide all over the place while you're sleeping. It did add some height to my mattress, which I personally love, and BONUS my Solstice sheets still fit great even with the added height. The packaging was awesome, it came vacuum sealed and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that's looking for more support with their mattress or, to make their mattress a little softer." – Audrey, Coop Home Goods Reviewer

Lucid Lavender Infused Memory Foam Mattress Topper

Best For: Serene Sleep
What sets this three-inch memory foam topper apart from the rest? A subtle lavender-scent infusion that promotes an even calmer, cozier, and supportive sleep space.

The Hype: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "100% worth it! I have degenerative disc disease and arthritis in my neck that causes back and shoulder pain. I needed to buy a new mattress which couldn’t have been worse timing that I was also strapped for cash and I 'splurged' on a not so comfy spring mattress for a whopping $200… enter sarcasm here. I just didn’t have the funds for a nice one and the springs were killing my back and also leaving sore spots on my hips and shoulders to the point where it felt like I should be covered in bruises. I bought one of these toppers and I haven’t slept this well in months. No more pain and the lavender scent is just enough but not overpowering." – Learn, Amazon Reviewer

Avocado Green Organic Latex Mattress Topper

Best For: Sustainable Sleep
Pricey for a cause: this eco-friendly topper is handmade from sustainable GOLS-certified organic cotton, wool, and latex materials that pass a rigorous screening test for third-party emissions standards (and rigorous customer approval for premium-levels of sleep support).

The Hype: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "Best Purchase! We recently purchased a bed/mattress combo and found it was not comfortable at all. We couldn't return just the mattress because we bought it together. We decided to give the Avocado Green Natural Latex Mattress Topper a try to see if it could save us from the hassle of having to return our entire bed/mattress purchase. It sure did! We are extremely satisfied with our purchase. Had we known about Avocado before, we would have bought their mattress instead. This is an excellent product that I highly recommend for anyone struggling with needing a good night's rest. Who doesn't need a good night's rest? We're completely satisfied." – Mary, Avocado Reviewer

Pure Brands Down Alternative Mattress Topper

Best For: Hypoallergenic Sleep
Premium toppers are not memory-foam exclusive — and this Amazon's Choice plush down-alternative option proves it with its super-plush microfiber material that doubles as a mattress protector.

The Hype: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "Soft, cuddly, and comfy!!!! I am SO in love with this product!!! I'd been in between getting a new mattress, topper, or pad — but after I stumbled upon this for the price, IT WAS WELL WORTH IT!!!! Soft, the padding is thick and plushy — it's like sleeping on a big, fluffy cloud. In fact, it is SO soft, that we didn't even put sheets on the first night we had it!!!! I am not kidding. It is literally THAT soft. Ever since I received this I can confidently say I'm sleeping well and feel so refreshed. It fits our queen-sized bed PERFECTLY and hides that old, ugly mattress underneath. It's like having a brand-new bed for less than $40!!!!!" – Teresa, Amazon Reviewer

Coyuchi Climate Beneficial Wool Mattress Topper

Best For: Supportive Sleep
This eco-conscious brand's topper is crafted from naturally non-allergenic wool material that's dust-mite resistant, moisture-wicking, temperature regulating, and offers firmer support that keeps its shape (unlike alternative memory-foam or feather options).

The Hype: 4.9 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "I bought this mattress topper as an alternative to buying a new mattress. I put it on my 10-year-old mattress and it instantly felt like it was brand new again! I am sleeping better then I have in years and not overheating as I have in the past. Great, great product and a good investment." – Abby, Coyuchi Reviewer

Parachute Down Mattress Topper

Best For: Five-Star Hotel Sleep
For a more classic style topper, Parachute's featherbed style filled with premium European white down has your mattress covered. With a 100% sateen-cotton shell and a stay-in-place baffle-box construction, it provides three inches of plush "five-star hotel feel."

The Hype: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "Obsessed!! The down feather bed is a game-changer. The only negative is that it makes getting out of bed nearly impossible. I have both the down and the down alternative feather beds and like them both but if I had to pick one, I would choose the down version. These feather beds are luxurious and comfortable and have eliminated any shoulder and knee pains I used to experience while sleeping. I have bought other mattress toppers from Amazon that were less expensive, but they aren’t comparable. Spend the extra money; you’ll be happy you did." – Birgit, Parachute Reviewer

Zinus Spa Sensations AirFlow Visco Elastic Foam Topper

Best For: Breathable Sleep
Two inches of Visco Elastic air foam combine with one inch of an infusion of green tea and charcoal memory foam — aka three whole inches of breathable and odor-neutralizing sleep support.

The Hype: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Sleepers Say: "My mattress is only 2 1/2 years old and I started having lower back problems and I didn't want to purchase a new one. So I searched for a mattress topper for almost a week. The Spa sensation 3 airflow had the best reviews. I've been sleeping on the mattress for over a week now and my back feels so much better! I love this mattress, I sleep so much better and I am getting a solid nights sleep again!" – Gotagoodsleep, Walmart Reviewer
