Because I’m a shopping writer, my go-to introduction to a brand is that “if you make me sleep better, I will champion you forever.” As someone who endures small bouts of insomnia, and frankly loves viewing my sleep stats via a fitness tracker, I’m perpetually chasing those dreamy eight hours. After all, is there a better feeling than waking up refreshed?

I’ve subleased for the past two seasons, which means I haven’t had much control over my mattress choices. In my first sublease, the original tenant preferred a mattress that was a bit too soft for me. In my second, the mattress was too firm. Not that this is a Goldilocks story, but…

When ViscoSoft offered to let me test its popular 3-Inch Select High Density Mattress Topper (now 25 percent off for a limited time), I immediately said yes. The afternoon my topper arrived felt like Christmas; I itched to log off work and go to bed immediately upon the delivery notification—despite it still being sunny outside.

The topper itself was heavy to lug up five sets of stairs, but not impossible. Keep in mind that high density means hefty. At 30.9 pounds, Viscosoft brags that its mattress pads weigh more than 40 percent more than the competition, claiming that will make the topper last longer, be more supportive, and eliminate pressure points. While I cursed the weight around stair number three, I ultimately agreed with the brand’s assessment: I wanted my topper to last for years.

Once I hauled the box into my apartment, I got to work unfurling the pad. While the instructions say to let it rest and inflate, my roommate and I immediately hurled it onto my mattress and plopped down on top. And something inside me absolutely melted.

Conveniently, the Viscosoft 3-Inch Select High Density Mattress Topper has straps on each corner that allow you to easily secure it to your mattress. No more slip-sliding and shifting during the night.

The mattress pad itself is 3 inches, thick enough to make the memory foam fangirl in me satisfied. It’s gel-infused, nailing that sinking feeling, and the rest of its construction ensures your joints are supported. The knitted mesh and rayon cover is removable and washable, but most importantly, it’s breathable so the temperature regulation is always on-point.

That first morning after using the mattress pad, I couldn’t get up with my alarm. My body physically didn’t let me, and I woke up in a disoriented haze. I almost didn’t want to recommend the mattress topper because it made it significantly more difficult to peel myself from my bed, but honestly, it vastly improved my sleep quality and bedtime routine. It made my bed something I craved, even more of a physical and sensory oasis than the vague “oh, I love my bed” stereotypes.

While I recommend the Select High Density Mattress Topper for those who prefer a medium or medium-firm mattress, the brand also offers a Serene Dual Layer Mattress Topper for those who prefer a softer feel (although the high-density version felt plenty soft to me). Since initially receiving the topper, I’ve slept on it for about 90 days and counting.

When moving out with a friend’s help, it took both of us to get the topper down the stairs, due more to size than weight, and I missed the topper the second it was loaded into her car. Since I was headed home for the holidays to my tragically Viscosoft-less childhood bedroom, I had to go a few weeks without it. So, next up is persuading my family to purchase these toppers for our bedrooms, but I’ll settle for persuading each of you. 

Boost your sleep quality, and make your bed even more alluring, with the soft yet supportive Select High Density Mattress Topper from Viscosoft—starting at just $130. Act fast while it’s 25 percent off.
