Lucid 3’’ Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper (4.1/5 stars)


“I have neck, spine, and shoulder problems. This topper has helped minimize the pain. I sleep so much better and don't wake up in pain. Best investment I could have made.” –Ayesha

  • Hundreds of ventilation holes allow air to flow through the mattress topper for a more comfortable climate.

Malouf Sleep Tite Pr1me Terry Mattress Protector (4.4/5 stars)

The mattress cover is exactly as advertised. Nice and soft, no plastic odors or noise when I roll around in bed. It was a great buy.” –Mike

  • With this terry-top mattress protector, you’re getting a 100% waterproof, spill-proof and anything-else-proof mattress protector that’ll give you peace of mind that your mattress is covered.
  • The quiet polyurethane backing blocks fluids, dust mites and allergens, while the 80% cotton/20% polyester terry top is oh-so quiet while you move around.
  • Air passes easily through the microscopic pores for a breathable sleep surface. It’s super snug, thanks to the fitted-sheet and deep-pocket design.

TEMPUR-Adapt® Cloud + Cooling Pillow (4.5/5 stars)

“I've been on this pillow for 5 nights and I must say it is the best pillow I've ever had. Great because usually I would side sleep. Now, I stay on my back more and wake up feeling much better. Less stiffness in my neck and shoulders. Fantastic pillow.” –DC

  • This cooling pillow is made of the softest Cloud Technology, which is ultra-conforming to your sleep style without compromising unrelenting support.
  • The premium-knit cooling cover provides a cool-to-the-touch sensation every time you lie down and is engineered with TEMPUR® Material, a unique cell structure within the pillow that’s activated when you put your head on the pillow (yay, science!).
  • And unlike ordinary pillows, these pillows won’t lose their shape or flatten over time.

Sheex Breathe Max Sheet Set (New!)

  • These all-performance sheets use cutting-edge technology to help your body naturally stay cool without sacrificing comfort or snuggly-ness (yes, we made up that word).

  • It includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet and two pillowcases and fits any mattress imaginable. For lack of better words, this set is the sheet.

MF600 Adjustable Base (4.1/5 stars)

“We recently purchased this adjustable base with our new mattress and have no regrets. The options including lumbar support are awesome. The remote works great. Sleeping much better than we did with an 11-year-old mattress and box spring. Highly recommended.” –Covey

  • This adjustable base can turn your ordinary mattress into a personalized comfort haven.
  • It can make sleeping better, reading easier, eating simpler and binge watching all your shows a breeze.
  • And it’s good for your health! The head- and foot-elevation features can relieve aches and the 3-massage setting can help relax your muscles and help you unwind in style.
  • And don’t worry about the technology—it features 2 preset positions and 4 memory settings, so all you do is relax.

  • You get one mattress protector, one sheet set and two pillows, which feature soft, cool-to-the-touch fabric for the perfect sleep experience.
  • The Cool-Tech Graphite Mattress Protector features high-performance cooling fabric to help regulate your temp as you sleep.
  • As for the sheets, you’re getting Ultra-Tech Advanced Sheets that offer a smooth, soft feeling as the fabric wicks moisture away from your body, keeping you cooler.
  • And the two pillows use the same Cool-Tech Graphite technology as the mattress protector to keep you supported and comfy.
