This mattress topper is perfect for all types of sleeper but especially side sleepers who want to add an extra layer of comfort to their existing mattress and benefit from pressure-relieving properties taking the strain off their hips, back, neck and shoulders for a pain-free sleeping experience. The breathable, kit cover is also good news for hot sleepers as it features moisture-wicking properties that will keep you cool and dry.

Price history: Tempur-Pedic is a premium mattress brand and with that does come higher prices, but there are regular Tempur-Pedic mattress deals that offer decent discounts across their mattresses, toppers and accessories. However, this 40% off deal is about as good as you're going to get and we've never seen the brand offer anything more than that. We usually only see this type of discount being added on the major holiday events like Black Friday so we're expecting to see this deal disappear shortly after the Memorial Day sales end so if you've been eying it up, it's time to act fast. During this sale you can get a queen size Tempur-Pedic Cloud mattress topper for $155.40 making a huge saving of $103.60. Plus, it's backed by a 10 year warranty.

Can mattress toppers transform your mattress? 

A mattress topper is a quick and easy way to transform your mattress without having to invest in a whole new mattress, which can be expensive. If you find your mattress is too firm then a topper made out of memory foam, wool or down can add an extra layer of softness and give it a more plush feeling. Whilst if your mattress is too firm, a latex or hybrid topper can help to create a firmer sleep surface. 

The best mattress toppers can also help to provide additional pressure point relief, opting for a memory foam mattress topper means it will conform to your natural body shape and offer relief around the shoulders, hips and lower back, which will leave you feeling ache-free in the morning and sleeping better. 

Hot sleepers will also benefit as you can get cooling mattress toppers that are infused with gel or covered with breathable fabric to promote additional airflow and lead to a cooler nights sleep. 

However, it is worth noting that if your mattress is showing signs of significant dipping and sagging then a mattress topper is only likely to provide a temporary fix. There are some things to look out for if you want a mattress topper that actually works to change the feel of your bed such as how deep it is, as under 2 inches it will unlikely give you any additional support but over 4 inches and you may feel like you're being sucked into it, especially if you're a heavier sleeper. If your mattress is over 10 years old or extremely worn and stained, it is unlikely that a mattress topper will make a huge improvement and it may be worth investing in a new mattress.
