MATTRESS PADS VS. MATTRESS TOPPERS: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Mattress Pad

A mattress pad is usually a quilted cotton cover that stretches over the top and sides of the bed between the mattress & the fitted sheet. It can protect the mattress from hair, sweat, dust mites, and other allergens. It can even protect children’s beds to keep their mattresses safe from accidents that may happen in the middle of the night. Mattress pads are usually machine washable, which makes for easy cleaning and keeping your sleep space fresh & smooth, especially if the mattress itself is worn out or bumpy.

Mattress Topper

A mattress topper is thicker than a mattress pad, and sits on top of a two-sided mattress to give it a pillow-top feel. It doesn’t add as much protection as a mattress pad does, but it does provide the bed with extra cushion for a cozier sleeping experience. A mattress topper can also provide extra support and can help relieve back and neck pain. Mattress toppers are also used to lessen the feeling of movement when sharing a bed with another person.
