If you can’t afford a new mattress, or don’t want to replace the one you’ve got, the right mattress topper can give your mattress a makeover. Our brand recommendations will help you choose the best one to make your mattress more comfortable.

A mattress topper sits on top of a mattress, offering a layer of memory foam or extra padding. 

When we surveyed 1,767 mattress topper owners in April 2018, three quarters said their topper made their mattress more comfortable. Two in five also bought a topper in order to protect their mattress from wear and tear. But you'll want to make sure you're buying a good-quality mattress topper, and that starts with choosing a trusted brand.

You can buy a mattress topper for as little as £20, although most cost more than that. So make sure your money is well spent - use our survey results to choose the right one for your budget.

Thousands of Which? members have rated their mattress toppers on how comfortable they are, how well they matched the description and value for money. We’ve awarded customer scores to all the leading brands: Dunelm, Ikea, Marks and Spencer, John Lewis, Silentnight and, for first time this year, The White Company. As you can see from the table below, there's a difference of nine percentage points between the highest and lowest-scoring brands.
