SnugSoft Imperial Bed Mattress Cover Review

By: Kelly Burgess on August 18, 2016

Bottom Line

SnugFleece wool mattress toppers are made of 100 percent virgin wool and are naturally resistant to dust mites, making them a good choice for allergy sufferers. Wool toppers are pricey, however, and require special care -- regular fluffing and dry cleaning is recommended. SnugFleece makes two version of this mattress topper, the SnugSoft Imperial and the slightly thicker SnugSoft Elite (Est. $165 and up).


  • Hypoallergenic
  • Stays in place well
  • Wide range of sizes
  • 30-day money back guarantee


  • Dry cleaning recommended

Breaking it down


Cushy softness. Reviewers are uniformly positive about the SnugSoft Bed Mattress Cover's comfort, calling it soft and luxurious. A number of users report that the mattress topper relieves pain and improves sleep quality. On the downside, this wool pad won't boost mattress support the way a foam pad can; however, many use it in conjunction with a more supportive foam or latex mattress pad. Owners are impressed with the SnugSoft's temperature control, praising both its wintertime warmth and its ability to prevent overheating. Another bonus: If you don't find it comfortable, you can return the Imperial within 30 days for a full refund.

Ease of use

Needs special care. SnugFleece, the manufacturer of SnugSoft mattress pads, recommends dry cleaning for their toppers; however, many owners say they steam it or put it in their washer on the hand or wool wash setting, lay it outside to dry, and then brush it with a brush meant for wool. Otherwise, the topper is easy to use. The SnugSoft comes in as many sizes as you can imagine -- even one sized for a crib, and the elastic straps do a good job of holding it in place on any mattress up to 18 inches thick.


Give it a fluff every now and again. Like all featherbeds and fiberbeds, the wool fleece in this mattress topper will compress when you lie on it and requires occasional fluffing to restore its loft. However, many reviewers say it fluffs up like new and many who have had it for months say it's still as comfortable as it was when they got it. The SnugSoft Bed Mattress Cover comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and customer service is reported as very responsive to issues.
