Hi, i used to use a memory foam mattress topper, but i didn’t like it because it kept slipping off the bed. I gave it away. But now it seems like my sleep is not as good so I kind of miss it. How do I get a topper that will stay in place?
Some memory foam toppers have a quilted cover (not removable), usually polyester. If you put this over a mattress with a quilted polyester cover, then it’s a slick combination, and the topper will slide around.
Many memory foam mattress toppers have a zip off velour cover which is less slick than the quilted polyester cover. It won’t slip around as much, but a little bit.
The best solution is to purchase just the foam, a memory foam mattress topper without any cover. You can place this directly on top of your mattress and cover it with a fitted sheet, mattress pad, or mattress protector. Then, in my experience, it won’t slip around, regardless of what type of cover your mattress has.
A big advantage to using a foam topper without a cover is that it performs a little better. Ideally we should sleep directly on the memory foam surface for the best in body conforming, pressure relieving functionality. But to keep the topper clean, and provide a more pleasant texture for our skin, we cover the foam with fitted sheet and / or pad.
