ViscoSoft Serene Hybrid Mattress Topper Overview

Based in Charlotte, NC, ViscoSoft has been a strong competitor in the sleep industry since 2007 and have been supporters of various charities in the area, including the Heart Bright Foundation, along the way. They offer premium products that aren’t overly expensive, which is great news for our quality of sleep and our wallets. Thanks to its comfortable and quality design, it landed itself a spot on our Best Mattress Toppers. While this review primarily focuses on the ViscoSoft Serene Hybrid Topper, note they offer several different options if this isn’t the one for you.

We’ve also written reviews on other mattress toppers, and encourage you to poke around to get an understanding of what you want before you buy! But let’s cut the chit chat and get into the features this mattress topper has to offer. 

Serene Hybrid Memory Foam Topper Price

As you’ll soon find out in this review, the Serene Hybrid Memory Foam Mattress Topper is made with high-end materials, so it’s not a budget topper. But with that said, we don’t think it’s overpriced by any means. In fact, the brand strives to offer nice products at an attractive price-point.

SIZEPRICE (MSRP)
Twin$130
Twin XL$138
Full$165
Queen$170

ViscoSoft Serene Topper Construction And Materials

Upon receiving the memory foam topper, right away we noticed it was going to be different than other toppers we’ve tested because of its fluffy pillow top cover. We were also fans of how comfortable the foam felt, and its gel-infused design. Here’s a breakdown of what you can find inside the 4” ViscoSoft Serene Memory Foam Hybrid topper.

  • 1.5” quilted, down-alternative pillow top cover to provide soft, and fluffy comfort
  • Gel-infused memory foam base layer for comfort and pressure relief 

The mattress topper’s memory foam is CertiPUR-US certified, meaning it’s made without ozone-depleting substances or chemicals. In addition, it was constructed here in the United States, a plus for anybody who prefers more quality, American-made products. 

About The Down Alternative Cover

The cover is removable, machine washable, and made with stretchy elastic straps to secure the topper to your bed. It effortlessly wraps around the slab of memory foam and your mattress like a fitted sheet, and is easily removable when you want to throw it in the washing machine for a good cleaning. 

It’s made with a down-alternative material, which is good for those who want a more eco-friendly way to get that traditional soft, and fluffy down feel. Below, is a few quick hits on the most notable specs about the cover.

  • 300-thread count
  • Satin pillow top cover
  • 700 gsm down-alternative filling 

As you can tell, it’s certainly a premium product and that’s reflected in its high-end construction and comfortable feel. It definitely adds that extra “it-factor” to the topper, and makes it a top-tier option above mattress toppers like Tuft and Needle Topper or the Allswell Mattress Toppers

Cleaning The Cover Serene Hybrid Topper Cover

To clean the topper, you’ll want to remove the straps, take the skirt from the memory foam support layer, and throw it in the washing machine on a cold water cycle, and a light dryer setting. Thankfully, the brand made it very easy for you to clean the topper, making it an ideal option for messy kids or your messy significant other!

Serene Hybrid Mattress Topper Feel And Firmness

Since you can’t reach through your computer screen to test out the topper for yourself, we’d describe it as a new-age memory foam feel with an extra plushness. While the second half of this topper is made with memory foam, it isn’t viscous or slow responding like the traditional material. Instead, the foam responds quicker to pressure and the fluffy pillow top neutralizes the feel even more-so. We think folks who hate the feel of memory foam won’t mind this at all, and we found it to be incredibly pleasant to sleep on.

On our firmness rating from soft to firm, we think the foam is around a medium or a 5 on the scale, as it is both supportive and pressure relieving on those pressure points. The pillow top doesn’t make it an ultra soft topper, meaning most petite to average folks won’t sink into the foam, but it adds a nice fluffy touch to make it that much more comfortable. 

Quick disclaimer, keep in mind that we base our ratings from the perspective of an average-weighted individual, but heavier folks may think it feels softer while most petite sleepers will think it feels a little firmer than we do. 

Temperature Regulation: Does The Serene Topper Sleep Cool?

The brand mentions a few times that, thanks to the gel-infused memory foam, this topper is going to sleep cool. While it’s definitely comfortable, we wouldn’t call it a cooling topper. It may help some sleepers from warming up at night, but it isn’t cool-to-the-touch.

ViscoSoft Serene Hybrid Topper Review Verdict

To sum this up in a few sentences, we would say it’s ideal for people who are willing to spend a little extra money on a thick new topper. The price tag doesn’t inflict sticker shock, but this comfortable topper includes premium materials like a satin 300-thread count cover with quality memory foam made from the USA.

If you want a cotton or down topper without memory foam, this isn’t the one for you. That memory foam layer offers several inches of extra support that feels pressure relieving, but it’s not a big fluffy topper. It’s also not overly memory foam-y, so if that’s the feel you’re looking for, this also doesn’t provide that. If you are on the fence, you’re given a few extra perks like a generous return policy to sweeten the deal. Check below for more details on company policies!
