You may be asking yourself, why would I need a mattress pad? Well, there are a couple different uses of a mattress pad.
Mattress pads are great to add some extra padding to your mattress. If your mattress arrived just a little firmer than you’d like, a mattress pad can help to soften it up, without having to shop for a new mattress. Or say you have a college dorm bed, a pad would help to make your mattress more comfortable.
They can also thicken up your bed by up to three inches. This is great for getting some extra support and durability out of your bed. Pads usually utilize materials like polyurethane foam or memory foam to provide extra pressure relief, which is especially important for side sleepers.
Mattress pads also offer easier care for your mattress, since most of them are machine washable. Many mattress pads can also prevent bed bugs and dust mites, and are waterproof, which helps to keep your breakfast-in-bed situation way less of a hassle.
Before we dive into the policies, let’s clarify one thing. This mattress pad is technically an ExceptionalSheets product, though, eLuxurySupply owns ExceptionalSheets, hence the title of this review. As such, it really doesn’t matter whether you purchase an eLuxury or ExceptionalSheets mattress pad because they’re both coming from the same company and manufacturing facility.
eLuxury and Amazon both offer a 30-day window for mattress pad returns, in which you will receive an exchange or full refund. If you decide to return, eLuxury will provide a prepaid return label. You as the customer will be responsible for packaging and returning the product, though.
eLuxury extends a one-year “hassle-free” warranty on their mattress pads, but their memory foam pads do not have a warranty. If there is a defect in your product upon arrival, we recommend you reach out to the company and explain your situation. They’re very nice and helpful.
eLuxury is a veteran-owned company, and their mattresses and mattress pads/toppers are made in the USA.
eLuxury has many mattress pads and toppers to choose from, but we tested with Extra Plush Bamboo Mattress Pad with a Fitted Skirt. We’ve been told that this particular mattress pad is the most popular pad that they offer. It’s available in all bed sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king.
It is filled with 100% polyester, and then its top is 100% polyester and its bottom is a cotton, polyester blend. It’s 1.5” thick in total. All of these materials are laboratory tested and certified safe without the use of flame retardant chemicals by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
This pad uses an elastic skirt to help attach it to your mattress. It should create a snug fit, and can fit around mattresses up to 18” thick.
To clean and care for your mattress pad, simply wash it in cold water on the gentle cycle using a mild detergent, then tumble dry with little or no heat.
This mattress pad has a soft, neutral-foam feel to it. Let us clarify that this is a mattress pad, not a topper. A mattress pad is typically filled with a fluffy material (in this case, polyester fluff), so it shouldn’t change the feel of your mattress too much. It will just make your mattress softer. Toppers are usually thick slabs of some type of foam, and can therefore change the feeling of your mattress from neutral to memory, etc.
For example, if you have a medium-firm memory foam mattress, after adding this mattress pad, it will feel more like a medium memory foam mattress—just a tad softer.
Keep in mind that this particular mattress pad is designed to soften your bed a little, not a lot. And, at the risk of stating the obvious, it’s not going to make a soft bed firm. If you’re looking for a firm mattress, click here.
We can confidently say that buying a mattress pad can be cheaper than buying a brand new mattress, even including some budget beds. The price of a queen size pad is typically around $135, which we don’t find too steep, but it’s obviously not “cheap” considering the 8″ AmazonBasics mattress (an entire mattress) is only about $80 more.
|Twin / Twin XL||$110|
|King / Cal King||$140|
We think a the eLuxury Mattress Pad has a lot of pros to it. It can soften up your mattress, protect your bed, and makes for easy cleaning. If you love your current mattress, but find it a tad too firm, consider getting this pad or others.
