Sleep in Luxury: MyPillow Mattress Topper Review
Finding the exact level of comfort you need to sleep deeply each night can sometimes be rather elusive. This is especially true if you have a partner to consider because double the comfort consideration is now in effect. With all the many mattress considerations presented in the sleep industry, occasionally you may end up with a mattress you like, but don’t love, and when that happens you need an easy solution.
Mattress toppers were created specifically for this problem: to address comfort needs in an affordable, yet quality way. The My Pillow Mattress Topper is one such option and provides a layered comfort for added support, and joint cushioning.
The MyPillow Company was actually started by the founder, Mike Lindell, due to his frustrations with flat pillows and a lack of pillow comfort. With the internet booming and making new startups easy, he took advantage of the situation to launch his own pillow design: The MyPillow Pillow.
Mr. Lindell ran his business on his own, sewing and creating the perfect fill until he had enough overhead to open a warehouse in which to mass create his design. Since his initial launch, the company has branched into other sleep industry needs, such as sheets, mattresses, mattress toppers, and even pet beds.
Mattress toppers are often needed by those who feel their mattress surface is too soft or too hard. The can help extend the life of their mattress as well, serving as both protection and additional support. This particular product comes in a wide variety of sizes to fit any bed, is made with a quality foam layered design, and helps more evenly distribute body weight. Considered a simple design, it does not have any bells and whistles but depends upon the material used and quality of the design to provide the comfort where needed. It also is supposed to help with heat regulation without the use of wires or tubes.
- Nice balance between firm and contouring
- Helps firm up older mattresses well
- Helps with joint pain and pressure alleviation
- May feel too firm for some sleepers
- Naturally hot sleepers may not find it cooling
The features of a product are what a consumer should focus on prior to purchase. These features help highlight the benefits of the product in order to make a more informed decision about comfort and quality. The following details provide some basic information provided both from the company as well as consumers to showcase what is offered and how it might pertain to you.
The three-inch topper is made from a patented 3 layer design that incorporates two different types of foam as well as a temperature regulating cover (more on that below). The top foam layer is thin, dense foam designed to evenly distribute body weight and specifically helps relieve pressure point. The bottom foam layer is a solid support foam that provides gentle contouring and distribution of weight from the top layer. This is designed to help you get the rest you need for your overall health.
The zippered, phase change temperature regulating cover is an integral part of the 3 layer design. This material is designed to help pull heat from your body to dissipate it away, as well as allow for excellent airflow- providing breathability and an additional cooling effect. Furthermore, it has a nice, hidden zipper to provide removal for easy laundering. The material is considered machine washable and dryable- although with any temperature phase materials it is best to tumble dry on low or allow to hang dry.
Rather than create a casing with a no-skid plasticized bottom that can interrupt airflow, or simply expecting you to use your bedding to keep the topper in place- this product has 4 corner straps that fit sung beneath your mattress to keep the pad from moving. These straps are sewn securely to the sides of each cover to avoid being stretched out or pulling free- especially when used with an adjustable bed.
The company offers a wide variety of sizes to fit almost any bed you may have a need to use a topper with. Currently, the topper is offered in the following sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen,
RV Queen, King, and California King. As of this review, a split top option is not yet available, although there are rumors that may one day be one for those who need a split.
As seen above, an RV size option is available. Like most toppers, this one comes vacuum sealed and rolled – upon which it expands when released. Getting it rolled as tight as it came is pretty much an impossibility, but due to the simple design- it is made to easily fold to move out to a camper, or placed in a trunk to take when traveling if sleeping comfort is a concern elsewhere. Many toppers have added details that make them hard to fold or roll, but this one is made to be portable is needed.
In terms of price, MyPillow is known to provide variable, ever-changing prices on their products due to sales and special offers. In relation to similar products, their cost falls within an acceptable range for the quality of what is being offered- but customers should closely watch the sales and specials to get the best deal possible.
With a 60 day guarantee, you are afforded a no hassle return and the ability to donate your product if you do not like it. It also has a 10-year warranty, assuring you that it will be free from material and manufacturing defects. Having this type of assertion to fall back on is important when making any sort of investment in a product you are unable to view or feel in a store.
On average, customers rate this product as a 4 out of 5 stars and claim it is a product well worth considering. There are strong claims to how well the topper forms to your body to help relieve pressure points and provide good joint cushioning. Consumers also mention many times that it sleeps cool, and seems to breathe very well. Overall comfort is rated high, as is its use to help bring more life to older, more worn mattresses when finances dictate a new mattress is not currently possible.
Complaints surrounding more personal taste leaning more towards it being too firm rather than too soft- although that is mentioned at times as well. No issues surrounding offgassing are brought up, but many comments that once unpacked, it is impossible to ever put back for a return- hence why you should decide about comfort within the 60-day guarantee.
A mattress topper can be an excellent comfort solution for a wide variety of needs. Whether you need more support for your body shape and size, are looking to relieve pressure and joint pain, or need to renew your mattress surface, the MyPillow Mattress Topper is well worth considering. Made with quality foam and a 3 layered design that includes a cooling, easily washable cover, weight distribution and comfort is considered superb by many consumers who use it on a daily basis.
