Everyone looks forward to climbing into bed at the end of a long day. Finally getting to rest our weary bodies and minds when it's time to head off to sleep is a feeling like no other. That is, of course, unless your bed just isn't quite as comfortable as you'd like it to be. For beds that have lost some of their firmness or maybe just need a little extra padding, Kohl's has a wide selection of mattress toppers that can put give your bed the added comfort your body needs and help give you the quality night's sleep you've been dreaming about. But what exactly is a mattress topper and how can it help bring you close to the perfect night's sleep?
A mattress topper is a removable piece that fits squarely on top of your mattress based on its specific size. It is designed to give your mattress a level of comfort that it cannot provide on its own. Typically mattress toppers offer supplemental support to a mattress that is either too soft or is simply past its prime and has lost much of the support that it provided when it was brand new. In addition to supplemental support, quality mattress toppers can also provide a unique softness that you can't get from a traditional mattress pad.
More Than Just a Comfy Night's Sleep
There was a time not long ago when mattress topper design was limited to the familiar egg crate foam layer or thin feather beds that did little more than make a mattress feel a bit softer. But the technology used to design and manufacture contemporary mattress toppers has advanced to the point where many of the most popular ones are made from memory foam, the innovative material that pillows and even entire mattresses are sometimes made from. This material helps significantly reduce tossing and turning and relieve pressure points by conforming to your preferred sleep position.
Besides being more durable than other similar products made of foam rubber or goose down, mattress toppers that are made from memory foam can provide the added benefit of helping people who suffer from back problems. In addition to conforming to your specific body shape and sleep positions to relieve pressure points, most memory foam mattress toppers feature open-cell construction that allows for even weight distribution. Not only that, but many also are designed with thousands of tiny ventilation holes which collectively optimize heat retention and help your body maintain its ideal temperature throughout the night.

Everyone is different, and when it comes to getting a great night's sleep, no two people are alike regarding their specific sleep needs. So which mattress topper is the right one for you? Kohl's offers a wide selection of the best brands including Lucid Dream, Comfort Escape, and Serta. If you suffer from back issues, a soft solution mattress topper may not be the best option. Softer toppers, while offering extraordinary comfort, does not offer proper body alignment which can aggravate already existing lower back pain. For back pain problems, a medium firm mattress topper is recommended as it tends to better promote proper spinal alignment.
So when you're ready to get that quality night's sleep you've always wanted, shop Kohl's for the best selection of mattress toppers with all the features you're looking for including memory foam mattress toppers, hypoallergenic mattress toppers, and waterproof mattress toppers.
