What's the difference between mattress pads vs. mattress toppers?
Mattress pads and mattress toppers are very similar and often assumed to be the same thing. They both provide an extra layer of comfort to a new or used mattress. They both lay on top of the bed and are secured in some way. So what's the difference?
Simply the materials and the way it's secured to your bed.
Mattress pads are constructed by first laying out a layer of "fill" to the desired thickness onto the bottom layer or cover. These "fills" can be of various materials; the most common materials used are down alternative polyester fiber (we use Revoloft Cluster Fiber) or down filling. Next, the top-cover is laid on top of the fill and is sewn down around the edges to create a pad. Many manufacturers stitch the top cover through to the bottom in the baffle box style; this traps the fiber in small pockets that doesn't allow it to move around the inside of the pad as it is used. Last, a fitted skirt is sewn onto the edges.
A mattress topper is a thick layer of cushion that covers your mattress (and/or mattress pad) to give you even more comfort and support. Mattress topper materials can be made of foam, latex, feather, and many other materials. The key characteristic of a mattress topper is that it lays on top of your mattress; it's like another layer for your mattress without being glued in. Sometimes these toppers come with corner straps, like in the case of our Quilted Feather Bed. For instance, our Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper provides great back and body support along with a great plush feeling for maximum comfort.
