A waterproof bamboo mattress topper with a side pocket
Protect your bed and give yourself a little extra comfort with this waterproof and cooling mattress topper. It has an easily accessible side pocket for holding your phone or glasses, and it is made from a durable bamboo fiber with up to 2 inches of stuffing.Promising review:
"I had a mattress pad that kept 'traveling' because the pockets weren't deep enough for my mattress and foam topper. Additionally, it wasn't waterproof and I have two elderly cats who like to sleep on the bed with me along with my dog. I was skeptical of buying something made of bamboo but this got good reviews so I thought I'd try it. It has made my bed sooo much more comfortable. It was already a good quality mattress but this topper made it even more so. I find I'm sleeping more soundly and waking up more refreshed. Great product." — Mary K

: "Both of our sleep quality has dramatically improved since adding this to our sleep number bed. It only took about 3 hours for it to fully expand and it was a perfect fit on our bed. It smells good too, no chemical smell just lavender. It's VERY comfortable and 100%worth every penny. I have pretty severe chronic pain and never sleep worth a crap, but I've been actually sleeping almost the whole night since i got this. I looked at toppers for several hours and finally picked this one and I'm soooooo glad i did! If you're looking for one, just get this, you will be so glad you choose this one!" — Kate & Jess

: "When looking for a cooling mattress topper, I was so hesitant. 'Yeah right as if it actually does anything'…reviews plus sheer volume of sales made me get this one and when I say I have been zonked out every night, I mean ZONKED. Like I wake up feeling like I was hit by a BUS I slept so hard through the night! Gone are the Under The Bed Demon Is Going To Grab My Foot kind of nights, tossing and turning all hours is ancient history, and my partner is actually allowed to touch me and snuggle again (huzzah!!!). Plus this thing is so comfy, it’s like being swaddled in clouds. If you need a cooling mattress topper, this is it, and thank yourself later!" — Kelsey Johnson

"I looooove this! I was nervous because a lot of the mattress pads on Amazon have bad reviews on not being thick enough. I guess that would be a personal preference, but this bamboo one is perfect for me. I somehow feel like my bed is firmer and softer at the same time. For MONTHS I’ve been having problems with my back when I get up in the morning cause our mattress sucks. We put this on over the weekend, and I can move in the morning! Worth every penny." — Ashley

An easy, fuss-free mattress topper, this cooling foam comes in 2- and 3-inch options. It promises to relieve pressure points through your back, as the memory foam imprints to your curves but keeps you supported. Promising review
: "I started experiencing a lot of hip pain as I’ve gotten heavier during my pregnancy, putting pressure on my hips, to the point where I had to flip from side to side every couple of hours. The mattress I’m using is too firm, and I think that was part of the issue, so I found this nice deep 2” mattress pad to try and relieve some of the pain and pressure. Let me tell you…this is a pregnant lady’s best friend. All the extra weight in the mid-section is being softly cushioned now, and I no longer have pelvic pain while sleeping on my sides. The only downside is it is slightly hot for summer. Not a big enough bummer to return though, because the cushion is everything I needed!" — Andi C
