How Much Difference Can a Mattress Pad Make for Sleep Comfort?


Everyone wants their sleep to be as comfortable as possible. The last thing you want after a stressful day is a stressful sleep, too. If you are looking to take your sleep a notch higher, then perhaps you should consider finding the right mattress pad. 

Mattress pads are designed to protect your mattress and make your sleep more restful. If you are having low-quality sleep, you may try using a new mattress pad or cover to help.

Different Kinds of Mattress Pads/Covers.

There are two main kinds of mattress pads: mattress pads and mattress toppers. The significant difference is their thickness; pads are thin while toppers are upgraded versions of pads. 

However, they both serve the same purposes: protecting your mattress and making it more comfortable at the same time. 

Types of Mattress Pads

Mattress pads are made from various materials, including wool, cotton, fiber, latex, feather, and memory foam and each fabric presents different benefits to you. 

Wool Mattress Pad

Wool mattress pads are usually in high demand due to their softness and ability to wick away moisture. As the name suggests, they are made from sheep wool which is allergen resistant and a natural insulator. 

Maintaining a wool mattress pad can be expensive since they are not machine-washable and will mat down, becoming hard as time passes. 

Cotton Mattress Pad

Cotton mattress pads are more popular because of their durability and the fact that they are machine washable. They usually require backing by another material to be effective since they are absorbent and won’t protect the mattress from spills and stains.

Latex Mattress Pad

They contain both natural and synthetic latex obtained from rubber trees. Latex does not attract mold or dust mites and can last for a long time. Most latex pads have wool or cotton covering with latex at the core. 

But, Mattress Pads Are Not a Substitute for Better Mattress

There is no doubt that mattress pads can enhance your sleep by improving your existing mattress. However, this does not mean that they are substitutes for getting a better mattress, especially when your mattress has run its course.

After all, having a good mattress pad but a lousy mattress will not guarantee you good sleep regardless of how fancy or luxurious the pad. You should invest in a good mattress first, and the pad should be a secondary consideration.
