Your Ultimate Guide to Bamboo Mattress Pads


Bamboo Mattress Pad

Today’s top manufacturers can do some pretty amazing things with bamboo. We’ve spoken before about the benefits of bamboo sheets. That’s not the only place in your bed where bamboo belongs. We also carry bamboo mattress pads! What exactly is a bamboo mattress pad and why would you want to sleep on one? We’ll answer both of the questions, and more, right now:

What is a bamboo mattress pad?

The simplest answer is that a bamboo mattress pad is exactly what it sounds like, a mattress pad made from bamboo. Of course, the full answer is a bit more complicated than that. Mattress pads both protect your mattresses and provide additional comfort. You have a choice in what your new mattress pad is made from, just like you have options in what materials a new mattress is made from. Certain materials offer you extra benefits beyond just protecting the mattress and keeping you extra comfy. Many customers enjoy bamboo mattress pads because of the breathability bamboo provides. Bamboo-derived fabrics give bamboo mattress pads cooling properties, which is important for people who tend to get hot and sweaty when they sleep.

Advantages of sleeping on a bamboo mattress pad

Cotton, latex, and wool are commonly used for mattress pads. Those aren’t your only options, though. You can also opt for bamboo. There are many benefits of doing so. For one, any bamboo fiber products are non-allergenic. This is because they are antimicrobial and antibacterial. These are big words that mean they give no room for bacteria and fungi to build and grow inside them. Your mattress pad won’t give you any sort of allergies.

No one wants to sleep while they’re hot and sweaty. Bamboo is renowned for its temperature-regulating properties. If you do sweat, bamboo is absorbent and will remove the dampness from your bed. Being cool and dry is essential to getting the sleep your body needs in order to be healthy and happy. 

Who can benefit from bamboo memory foam mattress pad?

In short, everyone! More specifically, because bamboo’s biggest advantage is that it keeps you cool, people who sleep warm often benefit the most. Some mattresses that feel comfortable and supportive can make you feel a bit warm, like memory foam. A cooling bamboo mattress pad can fight against this, meaning you’ll have the mattress you love without any drawbacks.

Is a bamboo mattress pad an alternative to a bamboo mattress?

Absolutely! There are a number of reasons you may want to opt for a bamboo mattress pad instead of a bamboo mattress. For one, you may look and see that the bamboo mattress price isn’t within your budget, but a mattress pad is. Also, you may simply already really like your mattress. Perhaps it’s only a few years old and you don’t want to switch, but you do want the cooling benefits of bamboo. A bamboo mattress pad makes a lot of sense in all of these cases. Remember, a mattress pad doesn’t make an old or bad mattress good, but it does make a good mattress even better!
