Intro: Linenspa Mattress Topper
Linenspa is most widely known for the variety of mattresses that they offer, including a latex, memory foam, and spring/hybrid version. But today, we’re talking about their most popular mattress topper.
The Gel Memory Foam topper is available through the Linenspa website, and through Amazon, where it has 4.5 stars and over 3,000 customer reviews. It thankfully comes with Amazon Prime, which means free shipping (hallelujah!). It’s also backed by a three-year U.S. warranty, which protects against manufacturing defects.
About The Gel Memory Foam Topper
The Gel Memory Foam topper is available in either 2” or 3” height varietal. Both come in a variety of sizes, including twin, twin XL, full, full XL, queen, king, and California king. They don’t offer custom sizing as of right now.
Because this topper is essentially a thick slab of foam, it doesn’t have any method of attachment nor does it come with a cover, but we don’t think it needs one. It does a pretty great job of sticking in place on top of your mattress since it’s a little heavier than other toppers.
Usually, we like the toppers to have a form of attachment to keep them in place, like straps or a zipper, but that’s unnecessary with this topper. Just make sure you have deep sheets that can cover both your mattress and the topper, as the topper can add two to three extra inches of depth to your bed.
This topper is made of gel-infused memory foam and thousands of polyurethane gel beads that are supposed to distribute heat to help maintain a cool and comfortable sleep temperature. Because memory foam has a tendency to retain body heat and sleep warm, the beads help you to sleep more temperature neutral.
But remember, many factors play into how hot or cold you sleep at night, ranging from environmental factors to what type of sheets you use. By the way, the little blue beads tend to get everywhere, so make sure you have a back up sheet to place on it while you’re washing your bedding.
This memory foam topper is not machine washable. If you have any accidents or spills, just lightly dab with a mix of mild detergent and water, then let it air dry. Never use harsh chemicals on your foam topper, as they can possibly damage the foam.
Linenspa Mattress Topper: Firmness And Feel
The Gel Memory Foam topper has a thick and soft memory foam feel. Upon laying down on the topper, you’ll find that you slowly sink into the material as it surrounds you in a light hug. This feeling is more intense with the 3” option, and slightly less intense with the 2” option.
If you’re an active sleeper who likes to switch positions a lot through the night, just know that this topper can provide a resistance. Because it’s so thick and soft, it can sometimes be hard to move around and switch positions. It also might make it harder to leave your bed in general, but hopefully your boss will understand that your new memory foam topper is just too good to leave in the morning.
We think that this topper will most likely make your mattress feel softer, especially if you get the 3” version. But think of this topper as cushioning. The firmer your mattress underneath the topper is, the firmer your bed will be overall, even with this soft topper. Likewise, the softer the mattress underneath, the softer your bed will be as a whole. Just so you know, side sleepers tend to like softer beds more because they accommodate for their curves, while back sleepers and stomach sleepers need slightly firmer beds to support their spines and keep them from arching too much.
Since this is a memory foam topper, it will change the feel of your bed to memory foam. If you have a bouncy innerspring mattress, it will no longer feel like that once you put this topper on it. If you currently have a mattress that you don’t find comfortable and you like memory foam, a topper is a great way to change up the feel of your bed.
Linenspa is one of the leading bed-in-a-box companies, at least when it comes to cheap mattresses and Amazon mattresses. Their toppers are in the same affordable category. Obviously, the 3” topper is a little more expensive than the 2” version, but if you want a soft bed that makes you feel like you’re getting a hug while you sleep, it’s worth the extra money. Here is a pricing breakdown for the 3″ option:
Also, be wary that prices tend to fluctuate on Amazon, so we recommend you track prices over a period of time so you can make sure you’re getting a good price. You can also check out our Mattress Coupons page to see any discounts we currently have to offer you.
This is a pretty good memory foam mattress topper for the price. We love that we can get it through Amazon Prime and that it doesn’t move around on top of our mattress. If you’re a big memory foam lover who is looking to soften up your mattress without having to get a whole new one, this is a great option for you.
It was sent to us by Malouf Sleep so that we could test it out. But all opinions are our own, from our own testing.
The foam is CertiPUR-US certified which essentially means, yes, it is safe to sleep on.
Nope! You can use any mattress. But just know that if you have a mattress with cool-to-the-touch technology or lots of airflow, this topper might limit it.
It feels like traditional memory foam.
This topper will either be 2″ or 3″ thick, depending on what you choose.
