Making a Mattress More Comfortable with a Microplush Mattress Pad

Microplush Mattress Pad
If it's currently not an option to replace a not-so-comfortable mattress, there is an affordable solution: With a soft Microplush mattress pad you can bring an otherwise useless mattress back to life - A Review
This particular padding comes in several size choices and it's made of one hundred percent Olefin. The inside is polyester and in order for the sides to stretch nicely over the mattress, they have ten percent spandex in them. The extra softness comes from the fact that they're over-filled. The stitching you see is purposeful; it's there to prevent the filling from shifting.
Although a mattress pad is mostly for added comfort, there are two other benefits to having them: They form a cleanliness barrier for the mattress itself, and they also make it a little easier to clean the bed. Some padding covers are machine washable while others are dry clean only. Usually the over-filled padded covers are dry clean only.
Even if a mattress has a pillow-top, you can still use this Microplush filled padding. You really do get a

lot of extra softness by doing this. The deep pockets on the sides of the cover make it easy to go on, even with the added thickness of a pillow-top.

To save even more, you can also get a comfortably filled pad that has the bed skirt already built into it. That way you don't have to run out and buy a separate skirt. I've featured one here so you can see what it looks like. It's pretty much the same as the one above, except of course, it has the skirt built in.
So before you go to the expense of adding a soft topper to your bed, be sure to examine whether a mattress pad is a wiser, more affordable option.

  1. This is a perfect way to extend the life of a mattress, keeping it comfortable for sleeping. My mattress is right on the edge of needing this solution. Thanks for the helpful information.

  2. Thanks Pat, it's what I've ended up doing over the years to avoid the expense of brand new mattresses

  3. For some reason, I really have a hard time selecting a mattress. No matter how comfortable it feels in a showroom, I am sadly too often surprised by how uncomfortable mattresses are for a full night's sleep. Using a microplush mattress pad is simply wisdom in action. Checking your features, I see they are a lot less expensive and a new one could certainly be purchased a lot more often. Excellent suggestion and review!

  4. You are very, very right. This is the first mattress I've ever had that I've had a mattress pad on. We got the pad when we got the mattress. And I've been impressed with how it seems to be making the mattress last longer, as well as providing more comfort.

  5. I need a mattress pad so this is very timely for me. Thank you!

  6. This is a terrific idea for prolonging the life of one's mattress as well as enhancing its comfort, Barbara!
