The 10 Best Cooling Tempurpedic Mattress Pads

When you get ready for bed at night, are you really excited about it? For many of us, we love getting into bed at the end of the day. It’s a chance to wipe away all the stress of the day and spend a little time dreaming some good dreams. But for some of us, going to bed can be painful, and not because you want one more episode of that Netflix series. It’s because it’s just too hot, or because our joints are bothering us.

Even if you have a top-quality mattress, like TempurPedic, you might just need a good mattress topper to even it out and cool you down. You might need that extra bit of support, and the right topper can do all that for you and more. You have much to consider when buying a topper, such as the ability to cool you off, how well it will support your joints, and if it is made of a material you feel comfortable with. If you are an allergy sufferer, consider double-checking that the mattress topper is hypoallergenic.

If you have children, pets or are concerned with cleanliness, be sure to check that the topper is machine washable. Many of us are concerned with the well -being of the environment, and the chemicals we come into contact with each day. Ergo, it is key that you check the topper’s manufacturing standards to make sure you aren’t coming into contact with anything you don’t care to. Let’s read on for some good suggestions.

You think these will be too comfortable with amazingly thick mattresses? Then go back to basics and check out Japanese futons instead!

Buying Guide


Look out for the type of material your mattress pad is constructed of. For some, synthetic fabrics are not suitable. Thankfully, many toppers are usually covered with a cotton or natural fiber fabric, so this should not be an issue, but it won’t hurt to double check. Toppers that contain gel will be more efficient at keeping you and any sleeping partners cool, so do consider that if necessary.  If you need a topper that will keep you warm and cool, look for a two-sided topper. You will also want to consider a topper with movement control if you or a partner moves around at night.


Allergies are prevalent, and those who have it know what it means to have a sneeze, runny nose or watery eyes. Try getting some sleep like this-no way! Therefore, it is best to make sure you choose a hypoallergenic mattress topper. This is a standard feature on the bulk of toppers, but always look twice. If dust is a problem in your home, or you just don’t like dust mites (who does?) look for an anti-dust mite model. Furthermore, look at how your topper has been manufactured. Does the idea of harmful production chemicals bother you? If so, look for the CertiPUR-US designation.


Some of the toppers discussed require the use of a front-load or high capacity washing machine. Many of us do not always have the luxury of using a laundromat washer, and some of us lack the front-loading washing machine required to care for these toppers. Make sure that you are choosing a topper that can be washed in a manner convenient to you.
