• Down or down-alternative toppers are super soft and plush, for an ultra-cushiony feel. For a person used to soft mattresses, this topper is ideal.
• Cotton or egg crate designs are the traditional toppers that college students have used for decades. They’re lightweight and easy to move from year to year.
Choose the best twin XL mattress topper for your teen based on his or her preferences. Some people like a softer bed, while others prefer more firmness.
A twin XL mattress topper can eventually lose its shape and cause back pain instead of helping to provide a good night’s sleep. Before you buy, make sure you choose one with quality material. Look for a warranty so you can contact the manufacturer in case it doesn’t last as it should.
For durability and comfort, search for at least a 3-inch mattress topper so your teen will not feel the bedsprings poking through the mattress. The thicker, the better. Also look for easy care instructions. Your teen most likely won’t want to haul the topper to the dry cleaners, so select one that’s machine washable.
