ViscoSoft Cooling Copper Mattress Topper Review

In this review, we take a closer look at the ViscoSoft Cooling Copper mattress topper to help you decide if it’s a good choice for you.

The Mattress Nerd’s Take: ViscoSoft offers several mattress toppers, but the ViscoSoft Cooling Copper mattress topper is the only firm option from ViscoSoft. Its combination of firm support and conforming capabilities make it best for people who prefer firmer surfaces, sleep primarily on their back or stomach, or simply find their current mattress too soft. The topper’s firm setting, in addition to the gel-infusion of its foam, allows it to sleep noticeably cooler than other topper options. The product also comes with generous delivery, trial and warranty policies, all of which are rare for a mattress topper.

Based in North Carolina, ViscoSoft features a range of bedding products. Currently, the company sells five mattress toppers. The Cooling Copper mattress topper measures 3” tall and contains gel memory foam that’s covered in hypoallergenic rayon from bamboo fabric. The foam is higher-density than average, giving this memory foam mattress topper a Medium Firm to Firm setting.

While some of ViscoSoft toppers tend to absorb heat, the ViscoSoft Cooling Copper mattress topper features materials that dissipate heat, helping sleepers maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night. It should sleep cooler than many all-foam competing toppers because the bamboo cover is breathable, the foam layer contains a gel infusion, and the denser-than-average foam layer aids in air flow.

What Makes the ViscoSoft Cooling Copper Mattress Topper Stand Out?

  • Sagging may occur over time

What is the ViscoSoft Cooling Copper Mattress Topper Made Of?

Rayon from Bamboo Cover

The ViscoSoft topper’s rayon cover has a stretchy feel and aids the topper’s breathability. The cover is also removable and machine-washable, making it a good choice for people who pay careful attention to their bedding products’ cleanliness and overall sleep hygiene. The cover features elastic straps at each corner to discourage sliding and to encourage a secure fit.

3.5 PCF Gel-Infused Memory Foam

This breathable 3″ layer of gel-infused memory foam is engineered to optimize air flow and minimize trapped body heat. It has a higher-density feel than most memory foam toppers, giving it a Medium Firm feel that’s best-suited to average-weight and heavyweight back and stomach sleepers.

What Does the ViscoSoft Cooling Topper Feel Like?

The ViscoSoft Cooling Copper mattress topper was designed to have a slightly plush feel and to give when sleepers first lie on it, but to push back with Medium to Medium Firm support once your body settles into any single position. Its foam has a higher-than-average density and should feel supportive, resilient and durable. The bamboo-rayon cover has a stretchy, breathable feel, and the topper includes elastic straps that fit snugly around each corner of your mattress to ensure the topper doesn’t shift throughout the night.

The firmness of this topper makes it best for average-weight and heavyweight sleepers, and we expect it to provide optimal comfort for strict back and stomach sleepers. Side sleepers, who need more cradling and give at the hips and shoulders, may not find what they’re looking for in this topper. Most lightweight sleepers will find this topper too firm.

ViscoSoft Topper FAQs

What’s the best ViscoSoft mattress topper?

The right ViscoSoft mattress topper will depend on your body type, primary sleeping position and personal needs. ViscoSoft makes several different toppers with multiple firmness, thickness and composition options. If you’re a side sleeper, for example, you may enjoy one of ViscoSoft’s softer toppers, which will provide more cushioning at the hips and shoulders.

Are ViscoSoft toppers good for hospital beds?

The thickness and density of this ViscoSoft topper may make it inappropriate for mechanical hospital beds. It’s best to check with the manufacturer of the hospital bed to learn more brand-specific guidelines.

Why would someone purchase a dense mattress topper from ViscoSoft?

While most mattress toppers are purchased by sleepers who want to soften the feel of their mattress, some sleepers want to make their bed more comfortable but not softer. This dense topper is ideal for back and stomach sleepers who need a firm, even sleeping surface but also seek contouring abilities and added cooling in a topper.

Can this topper be used with a mattress pad?

Yes, you can layer any thin mattress pad on top of your new mattress topper to protect it and your mattress from spills and stains. Just place a fitted sheet over both products. Keep in mind that, depending on the pad, it may change the feel, firmness and comfort level of the topper.

The Nerd’s Final Take

This Medium Firm gel memory foam mattress topper is ideal for people who want to improve the feel of an old mattress but don’t want a topper that’s too soft. The high-density memory foam used in its construction makes it an ideal top layer for people who want relief for pressure points in the back and stomach sleeping positions but prefer the feel of a firm mattress.

If your body weight is less than 130 pounds, you’re a strict side sleeper or you have chronic back pain, this may not be the best mattress topper for you. Still, ViscoSoft also offers ultra soft options, which are better for chronic body aches and people who need a Soft or Medium mattress firmness to achieve a good night’s sleep.
