What is a Mattress Pad?

A mattress pad adds extra cushioning and protection atop your mattress. This accessory can protect the sleeping surface from spills, stains and other messes. A topper can be constructed of various materials, including foam, cotton and polyester. Memory foam pads provide additional comfort and support when you lie down on your bed. Some models also are even heated or cooled, so sleepers can either enjoy a good night's sleep without feeling too chilly or warm.
