A good night’s sleep is important for both your physical and mental health, so buying the right mattress topper could be a way for you to get more comfortable without having to shell out the big bucks for a new mattress. Many mattress toppers are manufactured in the USA, but we could only find a few that are also made from 100% USA-sourced materials. Below, you’ll find our top recommendations along with extensive details about each product and the methodology behind our picks. For all of our research, scroll to the bottom of the article and you’ll see a big list of all the brands we found that are made here and some well-known brands that aren’t.

Our Findings

During our research, we found several manufacturers that produce mattress toppers in America using all US-sourced materials.

The GhostBed Memory Foam Topper’s combination of a multizone design for maximum support all over the body and its removable cotton cover makes it our favorite overall. The Frankenmuth Wool Mattress Topper is not only made from natural, organic materials, but also provides extra warmth during harsh winters. If you want softness, the Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Cooling Topper might be just what you are looking for. Finally, the Sure2Sleep 5-Zone Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress is a great value for the price.

Below are some additional details on each of our top picks – product features, how they tested against the competition, what we liked, and some things we didn’t like.

Best Overall

GhostBed Memory Foam Topper

GhostBed was founded more than 20 years ago by Marc Werner, who spent most of his life in his family’s ladder business. He decided to invent his own pillow and mattress when he couldn’t find products that were comfortable enough. GhostBed bedding products are manufactured by Nature’s Sleep.

The GhostBed Memory Foam Topper is made of contouring and cooling gel memory foam that’s 3 inches thick.  It stands out because it’s designed in a series of grooves and peaks that change shape over five distinct zones: the head, shoulders, torso, legs, and feet. This variation of support from head to toe is hard to find.

The waterproof cotton cover, which is as comfy as a T-shirt, is machine washable. It’s also antimicrobial, antibacterial, and hypoallergenic.

The GhostBed Memory Foam Topper is a particularly good choice for those who “sleep hot” and are looking for extra cooling.

As an additional bonus, this topper comes in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, and Split King sizes.

Things we like:

  • Multi-zone design
  • Removable cotton cover that’s machine washable, waterproof and hypoallergenic
  • Good for those who want extra cooling
  • Comes in seven sizes, including Split King

Things we don’t like:

  • It’s a bit pricey, so be on the lookout for sales

Softest Mattress Topper

Nest Bedding Alexander Signature Cooling Topper

Founded in 2011, Nest Bedding is a factory-direct company with showrooms in California, Washington, Arizona, New York, Texas, Illinois, and Minnesota. Its Alexander Signature Cooling Topper is manufactured in Phoenix, Arizona.

Those who find their mattress too firm but don’t want to buy a new one might find the ideal solution in The Nest Alexander Signature Cooling Topper. It has many of the features of Nest’s Signature Hybrid mattress, including a cooling cover and a 2-inch layer of Energex foam. Unlike a regular memory foam topper, the Next Alexander Signature Cooling Topper won’t trap heat, yet it still provides some contouring for relief from aches and pains.

This topper is particularly recommended for those who sleep on their side, lightweight sleepers, and those who don’t like a lot of firmness.

It comes in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King sizes.

Things we like:

  • Great for those who are looking for the feel of a soft mattress but don’t have the cash for a new one
  • Combines cooling with pain relief

Things we don’t like:

  • Those who sleep on their back or stomach might find it too soft

Best Organic Mattress Topper

Frankenmuth Woolen Mill Wool Mattress Topper

The Frankenmuth Woolen Mill was established in Frankenmuth, Michigan, in 1894 to process wool from local sheep to make bedding designed for bitter-cold Midwest winters. Matt and Abby Curtis are only the fourth owners of the historic mill.

Frankenmuth’s Woolen Mattress Topper is 2.5 inches thick and made from 100% climate beneficial wool covered with certified organic percale cotton with a thread count of 220. It’s hand-knotted every 9 inches to hold the wool in place.

The Midwest is known for its hot, humid summers as well as frigid winters, so the Frankenmuth Woolen Mattress Topper is designed to keep you cool and comfortable even during the muggiest night.

The topper comes in Twin, Full, Queen and King sizes.

Things we like:

  • 100% climate beneficial wool
  • Certified organic wrinkle-free cotton
  • Keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer

Things we don’t like:

  • It would be nice if Twin XL and California King sizes were available

Best Value Mattress Topper

Sure2Sleep 5-Zone Gel Swirl Memory Foam Mattress Topper

The Sure2Sleep Gel Swirl Memory Foam Topper was the least expensive made in the USA mattress topper we could find by far, but it still has a multizone design to provide optimum support for the head and neck, torso, hips, upper legs, feet, and calves, not to mention a 3-pound density. This topper is simple to put in place between your mattress and your mattress cover. It’s also a good option for those who want to make a futon comfier.

This topper comes in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King sizes.

Things we like:

  • Great value for the price
  • Multizone design
  • 3-pound density

Things we don’t like:

  • It’s not as durable as the other two brands we listed, but the price is so much lower it might be worth the trade-off if you are on a budget

Recap: Best Mattress Toppers Made in the USA


Full List of Made in the USA Mattress Toppers That We Found


Factors We Considered

People look for lots of different things in a mattress topper. Their mattress may not be comfortable enough for them for a variety of reasons. For many of these shoppers, finding the lowest possible price is a priority. And those with an unusually sized bed need to keep that in mind as well.

Therefore, we took the following factors into consideration when comparing mattress toppers: Pain relief, cooling, value, and variety of sizes.

Pain Relief

It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep when you have a bad back or achy joints due to arthritis or other conditions. A mattress topper that provides contouring is a priority for these shoppers.

Cooling

Some people get overheated while they are sleeping and wake up sweaty. Yuck! This is why features such as cooling gel are important.

Value

Many of those looking at mattress toppers are doing so because their mattress isn’t giving them exactly what they need, but they don’t want to spend the money for a new one. Naturally, getting the biggest bang for their buck is a big plus for them.

Variety of Sizes

Not everyone has a standard-sized bed. Maybe they have an XL Twin or a California or Split King. In this case, no matter how great a mattress topper is, it won’t do them any good if it isn’t available in the right size.
