Mattress pads (also called mattress toppers) can seem like a sheet, pad or little mattress and are employed for many different reasons. Some mattress pads provide support and an additional pillow to get a much more lavish sleep. Other, thinner mattress pads are used for stains, dirt suppression, perspiration, oil and also to block dust mites so that a mattress remains clean has a long lifespan.
In case you would like it for additional protection or as an additional pillow make sure you keep this in mind prior to making a purchase. You then can select the right one for you keeping in my things such as depth, thread count, and fit.
Thin pads used to guard mattresses will vary in thickness and how it’s been designed. A number of these mattress pads are full of cotton, are washable, and can repel liquids. Some are quilted with heavy padding, although some are just a flat obstacle used between the fitted sheet and mattress.
Mattress pads can improve sleep quality by adding soft bulk to hard mattresses. They also come in a variety of thicknesses to provide the ultimate amount of cushion.
Natural and synthetic materials can be used to make options like:
Memory foam mattress pads – lightweight, thick foam that softens with heat and comfortably molds to your body. Memory foam is one of the most popular choices to make a bed more comfortable without buying a new mattress.
Cotton mattress pads – are soft and machine washable. They are usually very thin, quilted and built with elastic edging to keep the mattress pad in place.
Natural latex mattress pads – are durable, naturally hypoallergenic, and free of dust mites and mold. The latex is harvested from rubber trees. Natural latex mattress pads can last up to 20 years and synthetic latex can last even longer.
Wool mattress pads – extremely soft and naturally dust mite and mold resistant. Wool mattress pads absorb moisture from the body and acts as an insulator, so sleepers remain comfortable in both summer and winter temperatures.
Mattress Pad Thread Count
Just like sheets and comforters, thread count is the number of threads woven into a square inch of fabric. It’s a sign of the quality, texture and durability of the mattress pad. Since higher thread counts mean tighter weaves, a mattress pad with a high thread count will keep the fill in and debris out.
Mattress Pad Fits
Mattress pads can be attached to your bed in multiple ways:
Anchor mattress pad – uses elastic bands to hug the mattress corners. This is the least secure fit.
Fitted mattress pad – looks like a fitted sheet. The top and the sides of the mattress are covered with elastic corners. The top is usually quilted.
Wrap mattress pad – the most secure fit. Elastic covers the top and sides all the way around the bottom. Even the sides are quilted for maximum padding and hold.
