The purpose of a topper is to make a hard mattress more comfortable and to provide better support for the back, shoulder, and neck while sleeping. Most of the products listed here enjoyed good reviews on Amazon. Check them out and decide for yourself if one of them may be the best memory foam mattress topper for you.

Sleep Joy 2″ ViscO2 Ventilated Memory Foam Mattress Topper

This one is also 2” thick and shorter on all sides than a standard mattress size. It has a similar open-cell technology like the mattress topper above that the manufacturer calls ViscO2 which is supposed to make it 5 times more ventilated than the typical memory foam. It is made of plant-based materials, and all these pluses could make it the best mattress topper at less cost in Amazon. However, this product may not be of the quality one would expect for a memory foam topper; it doesn’t react the same way as the typical memory foam because it doesn’t retain pressure impressions for any length of time. This could be due to the ViscO2 technology because it does feel reasonably comfortable. Not bad at all for the price, but not top of the trees either.

Queen Size 3 Inch Thick, 4 Pound Density Visco Elastic Memory Foam Mattress Pad Bed Topper

This one from Memory Foam Solutions appears to have all the elements of a good memory foam mattress topper. It is 3 inches thick at 4 lb density, perfect for most people except maybe for the muscular type. However, people that are sensitive to smells may be able to detect fumes that most people don’t, and the foam may deteriorate faster if it is not protected with a waterproof mattress pad. The pad will also keep the memory foam cooler to sleep on. Note that the warranty is void if it is used with a box spring mattress.

Lucid® by Linenspa 2″ Ventilated Memory Foam Mattress Topper 3-Year Warranty


The open cell technology of this product sounds like a good idea since memory foam is notorious for retaining body heat, which would certainly qualify it as one of the comfortable memory foam mattress toppers. It is designed to be an inch shorter on all sides so that it will not pose a problem for existing bed covers. It is very affordable and comfortable but it is only 2” thick, so it may not work for anyone that goes over 140 lb. However, the biggest problem with this product is the smell. Even those who are not sensitive to smells will notice it. If you want an affordable and comfortable topper, this is a good buy. It may be better to pair it with a waterproof mattress pad. It is made in China if that makes a difference to you.

Soft Sleeper 5.5 100% Visco Elastic Memory Foam Mattress Pad Bed Topper

This is a 4” thick topper; the 5.5 is probably the model number or perhaps the density of the foam. A typical memory foam topper retains your body’s indentation to relieve pressure on the back and shoulders. The manufacturers claim that it is made of Visco-Elastic memory foam based on NASA technology, but the product is not particularly space-age. At less than 100 dollars that may be a bit much to expect anyway. Most people may consider this the best mattress topper for them, but overweight adults may find that it does not provide the expected relief. The warranty is also unusually short (2 years) but you may want to take advantage of the manufacturer’s offer of a 30-night trial.

Best Price Mattress 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper


This one comes with a mesh cover which the others do not, but it is also a little more expensive. At any rate, it is 4” thick made up of 1.5” memory foam and 2.5” high-density foam. It is quite soft so it works best with a firm mattress. Most people will find it the best foam mattress topper to sleep in because it does relieve pressure points, but heavier people may find the thickness to be inadequate. It may cause mold damage to airbeds. Overall, this is good value for money.
