How to choose a mattress pad

The our team has identified several leading characteristics that will help you choose a quality product.

Mattress cover type (special, orthopedic, protective)

Depending on the purpose, several varieties are distinguished:

  • Protective. Avoid contact between mattress and sheets. They are sewn from durable fabrics and have a stitch made of synthetic winterizer, wool, holokon. Often offered in the “winter – summer” format. One side of the product is quilted with warm material that warms in the cold season, the other is cotton.
  • Waterproof. Doesn’t leak liquid. Made from double layered fabric. Top – any material that is pleasant to the skin – cotton or microfiber – a waterproof membrane is placed inside.
  • Orthopedic (toppers). Used to level the surface of the bed. They are made of latex or coconut coir, which allows you to adjust the degree of softness: the first option is soft, the second is harder.
  • Corrective. Bilateral. To fill one of the sides, coir is used, which provides moderate rigidity. The second side with a universal stiffness index.

Mounting method

Manufacturers implement in several ways. On sale you can find mattress covers that are covered like a sheet, i.e. just tuck under the mattress. Impractical because they move out.

Possible mounting options:

  • Corner bands. Easy to attach, hold quite securely. Suitable for high and low mattresses.
  • Elastic band around the perimeter, zipper. Eliminate product displacement. Mattress covers with a zipper are mostly premium products.
  • Buttons, buttons (metal, plastic). Simple and reliable way. But it will take a little longer to close.

Case material

The material of the cover determines the tightness of the fit to the mattress. Manufacturers use:

  • natural fabrics – satin, cotton, viscose, calico, bamboo, silk, cambric;
  • synthetic materials – polycotton, polyester, microfiber.

The first group of fabrics is environmentally friendly, well passes air and absorbs moisture, pleasant to the touch.

The advantages of synthetics are high wear resistance, strength, hypoallergenicity.

Type of filler

The type of filler is determined by the type of mattress cover. For orthopedic models choose:

  • coconut coir – tough, provides an anatomically correct position of the spine, antibacterial;
  • natural latex – elastic, slightly springy, does not retain air due to industrial perforation;
  • memory foam – takes the shape of the body, does not exert pressure on soft tissues;
  • polyurethane foam – soft, elastic.

The following varieties can be used as an inner layer in other types of products:

  • sintepon – soft, well breathable;
  • hollon – slightly springy, comfortable for sleeping;
  • bamboo – light, with an antibacterial effect;
  • silk – soft, light, belongs to the premium class;
  • fluff – warm, soft, since it undergoes special processing, it does not cause allergies;
  • cotton – breathable, absorbs sweat well;
  • wool – creates a useful microclimate, warms.

Among artificial materials, they have proven themselves well:

  • holofiber – soft, creates volume, wear-resistant, with a long service life;
  • struttofaiber – more rigid, levels out small unevenness of the bed;
  • polyurethane foam – elastic, with a good service life;
  • memory foam – takes into account the anatomy of the human body, increases the comfort of sleep.

Durability

The longest service life of models filled with coconut coir, foam and natural latex. If the recommendations for operation are followed, they will last up to 15 years.

A slightly shorter period of use for quilted options is up to 10 years. Thin waterproof models will last no more than 5 years.
