5 Favorites: Mattress Toppers


5 Favorites: Mattress Toppers

November 11, 2013

I firmly believe the secret to a great bed is a mattress topper. While I love a good hard mattress (attribute it to years spent visiting ryokans in Japan and sleeping on the floor), I also love the sensation of sinking into bed. Years ago, I invested in a thick down mattress topper, and I’ve slept comfortably ever since.

Note: All sizes quoted are for a standard full-size topper unless otherwise mentioned,  but most designs are also available in twin, queen, and king sizes.

Above: The Down Mattress Topper is a luxury option filled with European white goose down covered with cotton twill with nine baffle boxes; $660 in queen-size from Anichini (king, California king, and “ultra king” also available.

Above: Another plush option made from goose down, the Baffled Square Goose Down Featherbed is $199 from the Company Store. Note that full and queen sizes are in stock, and twin and standard king will be available after December 27.

Above: A budget option: the Down-On-Top Featherbed has a cotton cover with duck feather and down fill; $169.99 from Target.

Above: Covered in certified organic cotton jacquard, the Organic Merino Wool Topper is a chemical-free mattress topper designed for those with allergies to down feathers and polyester fibers; $467.99 from Sleepy’s.

Above: The double-sided pure Merino Wool Mattress Topper from UK company Arrella has a soft hypoallergenic filling and comes with elastic corner straps to slip onto the mattress; £219.
