My Pillow Mattress Topper Review

The company that brought us MyPillow, brings a new sleeping accessory that is sure to impress. Check out MyPillow's new mattress topper.

By Jack Mitcham

The MyPillow company started by manufacturing—this will shock you—pillows. Backed by a popular product and peppy advertising, MyPillow has done fairly well for itself thanks to their enthusiastic CEO, the guy behind the fun infomercials. The pillows sold well and the company has now branched out, using their patented pillow foam to make mattress toppers.

Other foam toppers are often just that: a slab of foam sitting on top of your mattress. The MyPillow topper is made of three layers, two foam layers, and the cover. The top layer is made of the patented MyPillow® foam. The second layer is thicker and firmer. It is a transitional foam that serves as a buffer between you and the mattress, but also distributes body weight evenly to ease and relieve pressure points.

The topper cover is made with phase-change material for temperature regulation. Phase-change material has a cooling effect. It absorbs heat (and softens) when you’re too hot and absorbs cool (and firms up) when you’re too cold. It helps keep you at a neutral temperature throughout the night. 

Why I Love It

Everyone involved with mattresses is seeking to give you a “medium-firm” feel whether it’s a mattress or a mattress topper. It’s the standard because most people are Mama Bears. They want to sleep on something that it’s too hard or too soft. They want something just right. And “just right” equals a medium-firm.

The company behind the MyPillow Mattress Topper tries to give customers a good night’s sleep, as well as a great buying experience. In addition to a 60-day money-back guarantee, customers get a 10-year warranty in case of materials or manufacturing defects. Then they give you two of their standard size pillows to sweeten the deal.

Anyone who is concerned about keeping things clean and avoiding odors and such will appreciate that you can take the cover off of the topper. It is washable and dryable. Dryable? Yes. That suggests it will not shrink in the process. That’s huge.

The company CEO and inventor of MyPillow personally guarantees the topper will turn your bed into the “most comfortable bed” you will own. Gentle readers, that is a bold claim. I still appreciate the confidence.

Sleep Experience

Customer reviews cover a range of likes and dislikes. The topper itself can feel rather firm. Some people like that. Others don’t. Depending on how much you weigh, the topper can feel softer or firmer. That’s true of any sleep surface. 

Overall, the two layers of foam mimic the construction of a decent memory foam mattress: the one closest to the top is a bit softer so it curves around body parts, the second one is firmer and more supportive overall. While the cover has materials that will help regulate your body temperature, it works best for people who don’t need a lot of help The material in the topper cover can’t solve a big problem, like if you wake up in a sweat. 

Some customers rave about the support the MyPillow Mattress Topper gives, especially for mattresses that are past their prime. In other words, if you add the mattress topper, you get a temporary fix for your mattress issues.

Still, some customers complain that the topper begins to sag or just deflate prematurely. When you’re paying over $300 for the topper, you may be disappointed. (You can buy a whole new mattress for that price.)

Conclusion

You may have already purchased a mattress or own a mattress already. How could you possibly need a mattress topper?

Several reasons, really. You may be waking up with soreness in your back or hips. You may be sleeping too hot. You may like a squishier feel to your sleep surface, but still want and need the support you get from your mattress underneath. You may just need something to get your old mattress through another couple of years.

Whatever the reason, mattress toppers can address those minor problems. They, and this MyPillow Mattress Topper, can be a workable and positive edition to your sleep environment. 

However, the MyPillow Mattress Topper, will cost between $200-$450 for that solution. If you have major problems or a mattress older than 7 years, it’s best to just start looking for a new mattress.
