The Lucid Gel Memory Foam Topper is one of the best mattress toppers for hot sleepers on a tight budget. With three customizable height options (2", 3" or 4"), the mattress topper offers generous thickness and plushness. When sleeping on this topper for our Lucid Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper review, our testers were impressed with its ventilated design that added some great temperature regulation. They also felt it to be one of the best memory foam mattress toppers for side sleepers who need cushioning pressure relief around their shoulders, hips, and knees, but some stomach and back sleepers may find it too soft. However, you'll get 30 nights to find out if it's right for you.

Price History: This cooling topper is rarely on sale at Lucid mattress, and when it is, it's usually gone in a flash. While you can occasionally find it on sale at Amazon, it does not include the 30-night sleep trial. 

Do mattress toppers work?

To make any impact on your mattress, a bed topper needs to be between 2" and 4" thick. If a topper is thinner than 2", it will be ineffective. If a bed topper is thicker than 4", it will feel too squishy. 

For a cooling mattress topper to work, it needs to have some cooling technology, such as gel-infused foam or a heat-dissipating cover. Most mattress toppers feature some cooling properties and are available in different thickness options, you can even find them in some of the best cheap mattress toppers under $50.
