Mattress Pads

Although they are commonly overlooked items, mattress pads are vital elements of bedding. They offer further comfort to you while sleeping, keep your sheets on the bed, and most importantly, protect your mattress. Another valuable quality about mattress pads is that they are machine washable and may be washed less often than your sheets, although they must be washed more frequently then your comforter.

Higher quality pads are certainly more expensive but they are longer-lasting, while providing more relaxation than your standard pad, and are worth investing in. When shopping for mattress pads, there are a few key elements to look at. One of the most important aspects of a mattress pad is the thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the mattress pad is. Another important element is the size. Make sure to measure the depth of your mattress correctly and match it with the corresponding size mattress pad.

There are a few different types of mattress pads, one of which is the guaranteed to fit style. Guaranteed to fit style mattress pads are designed with expandable sidewalls which allow them to fit securely over the deepest mattresses. This type is available in the wrapped and fitted styles. Wrapped style mattress pads cover both the top and sides of your mattress and include an elastic band which extends all the way around the bottom. These pads are also quilted all the way around so your sheets will fit securely plus it will provide extra comfort. Similar to the wrapped style, fitted style mattress pads cover the top and side of your mattress but they are only quilted on the top. These pads also resemble fitted sheets because the elastic can only be found on the corners which makes them slightly less secure, but they are also less expensive. Another style of mattress pads is the anchor style pads which are the thinnest and least secure, because they only cover the top of your mattress. Plus, elastic on these pads is only found on the corners. Of all the mattress pads listed here, the anchor style pad is the least expensive.
