Soften Your Queen Mattress with a Mattress Topper

If you feel like your queen mattress needs a bit of extra softness, a queen size mattress topper can make a difference. Many people use a mattress topper to increase either the softness or firmness of their mattress. If you’re unhappy with your queen size mattress’s current comfort level, or if you simply want to extend the life of your mattress, a queen size mattress topper might be the answer.

About Queen Size Mattress Toppers

Queen size mattresses are the most popular size, being smaller than a king and bigger than a double mattress. It’s a great size for couples, which makes a queen size mattress a common feature in the master bedroom. For extended life or a different comfort feel, you can add a queen size mattress topper.

A queen size mattress topper fits on top of the mattress, lending a new comfort feel to its surface. This can either add extra firmness or extra softness. The topper’s materials determine its comfort feel, adding more pressure relief or support. 

In addition to changing the feel of your queen size mattress, a topper can extend its life. That’s because the topper sees more direct wear than the mattress’s surface. It’s much easier to replace a worn mattress topper than to replace a queen size mattress, so it makes sense to add this extra comfort layer. 

Queen Size Mattress Topper Options

In most cases, people add a mattress topper to their queen size mattress to make it softer or plusher. However, some mattress toppers are used for extra firmness. For instance, a memory foam mattress topper on a pillow top mattress can reduce the amount of sinking. 

The thickness of a queen mattress topper will determine how much effect it will have on your overall comfort. Too, thicker material lasts longer under daily use. You should choose your material with your preferences in mind, whether it’s the hugging nature of memory foam or the soft padding of wool.

Memory Foam Queen Mattress Toppers

Our Soft-Tex mattress toppers give you the choice of bamboo charcoal-infused memory foam or a cooling memory foam to reduce sleep temperature. The Soft-Tex Bamboo Charcoal Infused 3-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper controls odor naturally with charcoal, while also providing three inches of memory foam comfort. In addition, Soft-Tex’s VentAIR technology allows for improved airflow over standard memory foam. These are also available in two-inch and four-inch options.

The Soft-Tex Arctic 30x Cooling 3-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper features ultra-soft, breathable fabric to help keep hot sleepers cool. Pressure-activated Reactex® technology helps this topper to achieve 30x cooler temperatures than non-treated toppers. Additionally, this topper features a non-skid bottom, which keeps the topper securely in place.

The Thomasville Gellux Convoluted Tri-Zone 3-Inch Mattress Topper uses Gellux™ technologies to relieve pressure and pain while also keeping you cool. Furthermore, the channeled wave design provides optimal airflow for more comfortable nights. We also offer this mattress topper in a two-inch model

Our Out Cold Copper Gel-Infused Memory Foam Mattress Topper from I Love My Pillow is a 2.5-inch topper of convoluted gel memory foam. It includes a removable, washable cover, infused with copper threads. This copper thread design provides antibacterial qualities while it transfers heat away from the body. 

Fiber and Down Queen Mattress Toppers

City Mattress offers a variety of down and fiber mattress toppers. Our fiber mattress toppers include cotton, tencel, and wool. These queen toppers add softness to your mattress, without the contouring nature of memory foam. There are so many choices in this category that we can’t include them all in this article, but we’ll highlight a few examples.

Our Serta Feather And Down Fiber Top Featherbed features a firm, supportive, two-inch base of small whole feathers, with a super-soft blend of feathers and down fiber making up the comfort layer. FreshLOFT™ treated hypoallergenic construction ensures that allergies aren’t an issue. For a down alternative, the Malouf Down Alternative Mattress Topper is filled with ultra-soft microfiber for a down-like feel without quills, allergens, or odors. 

Sleep & Beyond’s Mymerino® Organic Wool Topper is filled with super-fine Merino wool, for ultimate breathability and comfort. The certified organic cotton cover offers moisture-wicking protection for dryer nights. The wool filling provides 1.5 inches of loft, which allows for excellent pressure relief.
