There’s no denying that the effects of a solid night’s sleep can have a huge impact on our mood, our productivity, and our general outlook on life.

Mattresses are one factor that contributes to the quality of our sleep, and when they start to suffer, chances are you’ll find your sleep is affected too. While it may not be in the budget to purchase a completely new mattress, a memory foam topper can be a convenient and affordable way to extend the life of your existing mattress.

One top-rated Amazon pick is on sale now, and starting at just $61 it offers plenty of bang for your buck.

What people are saying

Backed by a 4.5-star rating and more than 1,500 5-star reviews, Amazon shoppers can’t get enough of this mattress’s comfort and value.

“I recently replaced my old pillow-top coil mattress with a firm foam mattress. I loved the back support the new foam mattresses provided, but it just felt hard compared to my old pillow-top. So I ordered the blue cooling gel topper, and what a difference! It provides just the right amount of comfortable ‘squishiness’ I was missing,” shared one reviewer.

The LUCID 2 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper also works wonders on tired mattresses, lending an extra layer of cushioning.

“I was looking for a cheap option to make my bed at college more comfortable. This was perfect for that,” added another. “It has held up great and it's been about 5 months since I bought this item. It's definitely a great option for added comfort if you're just looking for something quick and cheap.”

"My daughter loves it. Her bed was too hard although very expensive so I didn't want to replace it yet. This was a great solution. Very comfortable," added another

Some reviewers have noted that this topper doesn’t come with elastics or a way to secure it into place on a mattress, so you may find that it shifts around at night — especially if you’re a restless sleeper.

Verdict

Starting at just $61, this mattress topper is an affordable way to add an extra layer of cushioning to any mattress. Shoppers have raved that it doesn’t leave behind any chemical scent, it provides a soft surface to any bed, and is a great value for its price. Before hitting buy, you’ll just want to be sure that you won’t mind readjusting things every once in a while.
