If you spend much time watching TV, you’ve probably heard of MyPillow. The brand launched in 2004 and rose to fame thanks to infomercials featuring the company’s founder, Mike Lindell. As the name suggests, MyPillow started out as a pillow company. After the success of the pillow, MyPillow started selling other products including sheets, pillowcases, dog beds, a mattress, and mattress toppers.

The original MyPillow was designed to adjust to each sleeper to provide ideal neck support regardless of sleeping position. The MyPillow Mattress Topper applies the same idea in its aim to provide support and comfort to many different types of sleepers.

The MyPillow Mattress Topper is available in two thickness options. One is two inches thick, and the other is three inches thick. Both mattress toppers are constructed with three layers. Two layers are composed of foam, and the third layer is a cover made from phase change material (PCM) designed to effectively regulate temperature.

In this review, we’ll describe the construction of the MyPillow Mattress Topper and how we expect it to perform. Understanding the unique characteristics of the MyPillow Mattress Topper will help you decide whether it can improve your nightly sleep.

MyPillow Mattress Topper Performance

To help you understand what to expect from the MyPillow Mattress Topper, this section addresses its performance for most sleepers in key categories that affect the overall sleep experience. Individual preferences and experiences may vary, but our reviews can help you gain a basic understanding of what you might anticipate from the MyPillow Mattress Topper.

Support
The top layer of foam in the MyPillow Mattress Topper is built to offer pressure relief that enhances spinal alignment. This specialty foam is responsive in a way that can accommodate the curvature of the spine.
Conforming
Both layers of foam in the MyPillow Mattress Topper offer some conforming, but the majority of the contouring comes from the top layer. Most sleepers should sink in enough to enjoy some hug, but the 3-inch topper offers more conforming than the 2-inch topper.
Temperature Neutrality
The cover of the MyPillow Mattress Topper is composed of a phase change material. This PCM fabric is designed to help regulate your temperature and keep the sleeping surface from getting too hot or too cold. Because of this, the MyPillow Mattress Topper should sleep cooler than many other foam mattress toppers.
Motion Isolation
The MyPillow Mattress Topper uses two layers of foam. The top layer’s specialty polyfoam can absorb motion, preventing it from transferring across the surface of the mattress topper. The MyPillow Mattress Topper should not transfer significant motion, but if your existing mattress is exceptionally prone to motion transfer, you may still notice some movement. Straps at each corner hold the topper in place, so you should not encounter much if any movement of the topper itself.
Sex
Since the foam in the MyPillow Mattress Topper conforms to the body, it may make moving across the surface of the bed more challenging. Because of this, some partners may not find the MyPillow Mattress Topper ideal for sexual activity.
Noise
Like most foam toppers, the MyPillow Mattress Topper should be extremely quiet. While the topper itself should not produce significant noise, you could still hear noises from your existing mattress. However, since the MyPillow Mattress Topper absorbs motion, it could also reduce how much noise your mattress makes.
 

What Type of Sleeper is Good for a MyPillow Mattress Topper?

While the materials and construction play a significant role in how a mattress topper performs, your weight and sleeping position can impact how you experience the mattress topper.

Because lightweight sleepers put less pressure on the sleep surface, they may prefer softer mattress toppers that allow them to sink in and experience more contouring. Heavier weight sleepers put more force on the surface, so they frequently appreciate a firmer mattress topper that prevents them from sinking in too far.

Side sleepers are prone to pressure points created by wider parts of the body exerting more pressure on the sleep surface. They may prefer a softer, thicker mattress topper that distributes body weight while cushioning key areas like the shoulders and hips. Back and stomach sleepers often like a firmer mattress topper that provides good support to prevent areas like the midsection from sinking in too far.

Materials and Construction

A mattress topper’s construction and materials determine how it is likely to perform when you sleep on it. This section explains how the MyPillow Mattress Topper is constructed and what materials it features.

MyPillow’s Mattress Topper is constructed of three layers. First, the topper features a cover that uses a phase change material. This type of material regulates temperature, including by helping dissipate heat from around the body. The other two layers of the mattress topper use foam. The top layer is a proprietary polyfoam that aims to provide contouring and support. The next layer uses transitional foam, which is designed to deliver stability and further relief at pressure points. Each corner of the topper has a strap that is made to go under the mattress and keep the topper securely in place.

How to Use a Mattress Topper

If your MyPillow Mattress Topper arrives with setup instructions, following the company-provided instructions could help your setup go smoothly. If no instructions are included, here are some steps you can use to set up your MyPillow Mattress Topper:

  • Move the packaged topper to the room you want to use it in. Because unpackaged mattress toppers can be cumbersome, moving it while it is still packaged should make it more maneuverable.
  • Carefully unpackage the topper. Keep sharp objects as far from the mattress topper as possible to avoid inflicting accidental damage to the materials.
  • Place the topper evenly on your stripped mattress. The topper should be placed directly on top of the mattress.
  • Use the MyPillow Mattress Topper’s corner straps to anchor the topper in place. These corner straps are unique to the MyPillow Mattress Topper and can help prevent it from shifting during the night.
  • Make your bed as usual. The fitted sheet can be applied directly on top of your new mattress topper and will also help to hold the topper in place.

To clean your topper, follow any instructions that come with it. The cover is zippered and removable. It can be washed and dried to keep the surface of your mattress topper clean. In general, foam usually cannot be washed. However, light spot cleaning with gentle substances may be possible. Reviewing the information that comes with your mattress topper can help you ensure you follow the best cleaning procedures specific to the MyPillow Mattress Topper.
