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. While wool mattress pads aren't specifically designed to make a best softer, owners say this 1 1/2 inch thick pad is an exception and has softened up a too-firm memory foam mattress very nicely. In particular, owners are impressed with the SnugSoft's temperature control, praising both its wintertime warmth and its ability to prevent overheating.

Ease of use

Needs occasional fluffing. SnugSoft Elite mattress pads are machine washable, but a small handful of reviewers say it had a very unpleasant smell after washing that would not go away. The SnugSoft comes in a full range of sizes, including crib-sized mattresses, 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 mattress cover comes with a 30-day money back comfort guarantee, and customer service is reported as very responsive to issues.
