MyPillow Mattress Topper Review
If you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon already, mattress toppers are becoming more prominent in the market and are quite popular these days. This begs the questions, what is a mattress topper, and is it a bedroom essential?
Overall, My Pillow mattress topper is great in terms of quality, comfort, and support. Also, it’s a very established brand in the bedding industry.

MyPillow is a company founded in Minnesota, U.S.A., by Mike J Lindell. Lindell is the creator of the famous MyPillow pillows that are engineered to cater to almost anyone regardless of their preferred sleeping positions. What set the MyPillow pillows apart from the rest was the four patented fill level options that Lindell created. In fact, we did a complete my pillow review about it.
You have the option to choose from four categories of fill to find what suits you best for a good night’s sleep. If you are not so sure what would suit you, the MyPillow website has a fitting guide that matches your gender and shirt size to the recommended fill level. With positive feedback from costumers since 2005 and over 40 million pillows sold, MyPillow has expanded its product range from pillows to mattresses, pillowcases, and now the mattress topper.
MyPillow was involved in a lawsuit, which resulted in them paying $1 million just to settle the lawsuit. You can check out the lawsuit to understand further background information about MyPillow before deciding whether to purchase from the company.

MyPillow Mattress Topper Price
MyPillow prices their mattress topper in the $250 to $425 range on their website, depending on your bed size, and this seems excessive. The MyPillow website does have promotions regularly so you may be able to find a better offer on the mattress pad. You could say the pricing is too high, but when you think about it, you would probably be using this product for maybe 10 years or more.
In some ways it is an investment in your well-being as you get to sleep better every night. A mattress pad can increase the lifespan of your mattress by a few years too as the pad acts as extra cushioning.
MyPillow Mattress Topper Features
The MyPillow mattress topper is proudly made in the U.S.A. It has a 3” thickness consisting of three unique layers. Each layer is engineered to cater to the specific requirements of a topper for your mattress which are supporting your weight, regulating temperature, and adding more comfort to your night’s sleep.
The extra cushioning you get with the MyPillow mattress topper further supports you as the pressure is evenly distributed across the memory foam. You can feel that your back is fully supported no matter what the sleeping position.
3 Layer Design
MyPillow mattress topper’s layers work cohesively to provide a supportive and comfortable memory foam base over your mattress. Each layer is crafted with different materials that help to ensure you have everything you need for a good night’s sleep:
- Layer 1 – This layer is a solid piece of MyPillow patented memory foam that provides superior support and durability that lasts over time. It is medium-firm so there is no immediate degrading.
- Layer 2 – The next layer is a transitional foam that provides optimal comfort, helps evenly distribute body weight in an almost cradling effect, and helps relieve any pressure points from causing any discomfort.
- Layer 3 – The outer layer is a cover made from Phase Change Material designed to cool the body throughout the night as you sleep which means no heat is retained by the surface of the cover.
The MyPillow mattress topper cover is easily removable with the zipper attachment. This makes cleaning a breeze. The cover is machine washable and dryable. There are no special washing instructions other than to machine wash and tumble dry on high heat.

Mattress Topper Materials and Construction
These various materials cater to different consumer preferences as they all have separate attributes. As with most products, it helps to know what you are looking for in a mattress topper before shopping for one. Whether you require a cooling gel for temperature regulation, extra firmness for back support, or just something that is easy to clean, it’s good to go shopping with an idea of what will better suit your needs.
For example, wool mattress toppers are the most expensive to buy as the material is harder to source and has a wider range of benefits like being hypoallergenic and keeping your body cool, just to name a few. Latex toppers are comparable in comfort and features but are more accessible compared to wool ones.
Cotton and polyester blends are the most common type of mattress topper you’ll find on the market which is why it’s the cheapest of the options out there. The blended material tends to imitate the feel of the higher end products with wool or latex. However, they wear out fairly fast and lack firmness.
So, if you are looking for something that lasts, it’s better to avoid cotton and polyester blends. The feather topper is not so far off from the cotton and polyester blend too, with a tendency to be clumpy over long use and a good deal of feather loss over time as well.
Memory foam is by far the most popular material chosen by customers, and quite understandably so. Memory foam is a synthetic open-cell foam that retains its shape well when compressed for long periods of time. Commonly used in mattresses and pillows for the past few decades, memory foam has quickly become a favorite for consumers.
The foam is sensitive to pressure and temperature which makes it ideal to be in mattresses and pillows because it supports your body weight and helps with cooling as you sleep. With the rise in popularity of memory foam mattresses, memory foam toppers have made their way into the market as well.
With the rise in popularity of mattress toppers, almost every mattress or pillow related company has hopped on the chance to market their own versions of the product to the masses. This is when MyPillow decided to create their own version of the coveted mattress topper.
Should You Buy It?
Overall, the MyPillow mattress topper is definitely a must-try product. It may be riding on the mattress topper and memory foam craze that is going around now but it does seem to be beneficial for a wide range of sleepers. If you are a hot sleeper, you have to consider testing this on your bed.
The temperature regulating ability itself is intriguing and can probably solve a very common problem among the masses which is having to toss and turn to avoid hot spots on the bed at night. What’s more, the gel in the memory foam has a cooling effect, so you don’t wake up in a hot sweat at night.
Besides regulating your temperature as you sleep, you can depend on the MyPillow patented foam will give you better pressure and pain relief and the comfort you need every night to cradle your back no matter the sleep position based off the success of the MyPillow pillow that carries the same filling.
The topper distributes pressure evenly across the mattress to provide pain relief to your spine. That means you can maintain the best posture as you sleep. You can also rest easy knowing if you don’t like the product, MyPillow’s 60-Day Money Back Guarantee is there to protect your investment.
