What is a Mattress Pad versus a Mattress Topper?

A mattress pad and a mattress topper serve similar purposes but have some key differences:

Mattress Pad:

  • A mattress pad is typically thinner than a mattress topper and is designed to provide a layer of protection for your mattress.
  • It often serves as a barrier between you and the mattress, protecting it from spills, stains, dust mites, and other allergens.
  • Mattress pads are usually quilted or fitted and are secured to the mattress like a fitted sheet with elastic edges.
  • They can add a slight amount of padding or cushioning to the mattress, but their primary purpose is protection.
  • If you are looking for an all-natural layer of protection for your mattress, we have Bamboo Filled Mattress Pads encased in 100% Bamboo Lyocell for all bed sizes: OCOCHI Bamboo Mattress Pad

Mattress Topper:

  • A mattress topper is a thicker layer of material that is placed on top of your mattress to alter its firmness, provide additional support, or enhance comfort.
  • Toppers come in various materials such as memory foam, latex, down alternative, feather-filled or wool.
  • They can be used to soften a firm mattress or add extra support to a softer one.
  • Mattress toppers are generally thicker than mattress pads and are not typically used for protection; instead, they are mainly for comfort and support.
