Mattress Toppers: Ratings of Sources
The editors of SleepLikeTheDead.com have analyzed nearly 65,000 individual owner reviews for several types of mattress toppers, including memory foam, latex, featherbed, fiberbed and wool; as well as mattress pads. Based on this data, they rate overall consumer satisfaction with this type of mattress, as well as with specific models, giving each a satisfaction rating. However, the mattress toppers are not reviewed in any further detail.
Memory foam mattress toppers are by far the most popular mattress topper at Amazon.com, but there are thousands of other types and styles here as well. Dozens of products get thousands of reviews, many others get hundreds, and there are quite a few very well-reviewed toppers and pads. Some of these mattress toppers are exclusive to Amazon.com; others are sold through third party, marketplace sellers, and can be found less expensively elsewhere, such as at Walmart.com or Overstock.com.
Overstock.com is the exclusive seller of several popular mattress toppers, including Serta and National Sleep products. Many of these mattress toppers garner hundreds or even thousands of reviews.
Walmart.com sells hundreds of mattress pads and toppers, and quite a few get hundreds of reviews. Mattress toppers tend to score more highly than mattress pads, overall.
