The Modway Relax mattress topper is a 2 inch gel memory foam pad with a bamboo fabric cover that keeps the topper clean and in place on your mattress. It is sold exclusively through Amazon and is one of the best priced mattress toppers with a cover.
This topper comes in a neat package that you unzip to open.
Here’s a video overview of the topper. I am sitting on the Modway Elysse memory foam and pocket coil mattress.
The topper is sold through Amazon. It is not prime eligible but is in stock and comes with free shipping. So once you place the order it should arrive in about a week instead of 2 days.
Here is the construction of the topper according to the Amazon listing:
- Softness and cooling relief
- Positions under Fitted sheets
- 2” gel-infused memory foam
- Memory foam CertiPUR-US Certified
- 40% bamboo / 60% polyester cover
- Weight, 18 lbs.
Here’s a look inside the topper to see how it is constructed. It is basically 2 inches of gel foam with a blended bamboo cover.
Most mattress toppers are simply a piece of cut foam. I appreciate that Modway has included a cover that is already zipped over the the topper. This serves a few functions. It keeps the memory foam clean and you can wash the cover. It also helps keep the topper in place on the mattress. In the picture below you can see little studs that help to grip the mattress:
Here is a video showing heat dissipation from the topper:
This is ready to sleep on almost immediately. I would give it about 3 or 4 hours though to expand fully. Here’s a picture of the topper on the mattress right out of the box. The foam is fully expanded but as you can see the cover is still a little wrinkly. That won’t affect performance but I prefer to just air it out a big before I put a mattress protector and/or sheets on it.
The Modway mattress topper is a good deal. There’s a similar topper from Millard for $103.99 for a queen while the Modway comes in at $87.50. At 2 inches thick, I would recommend this for people looking for a slight increase in pressure relief and cushioning. If your mattress is hard to begin with and you want to transform the feel, I strongly recommend getting a new mattress. The Modway Aveline mattress retails for $227.82 for a queen! While I don’t recommend the Aveline for people over 200 lbs., it is still an awesome deal and may be a better choice than a mattress topper.
