Types of Fiber Fill
Memory Foam Fiber Fill
This fill combines the pressure-relieving support of memory foam with the plush feel of a fiber bed to cradle your body as you sleep. Toppers with memory foam fill provide extra support, thanks to shredded clusters or thin fibers of a soft foam that molds to the shape of your body. You can also find hybrid fiber beds that combine memory foam with down alternative polyester fill, delivering added softness and breathability for improved comfort.
Gel-Infused Fiber Fill
Drift into sleep atop a shredded gel fiber bed made from breathable gel-infused fibers. Offering a genuine down-like touch, gel-infused fill provides extra support for sleepers looking for a firmer topper. The body-molding gel fibers relieve pressure points while keeping you from sinking into the mattress. The cooler composition makes this fill a popular option for the summer.
Polyester or Synthetic fill
If you're dreaming of that plush pillow-top feel, catch some shuteye on a fiber bed filled with synthetic fibers. Beds with this fill range from dense and firm to lofty and soft. Unique options such as EnviroLoft polyester filling and Nexus fiber fill promise all-night comfort. Toppers featuring fiber clusters deliver an extra-plush, pillow-like touch.
This natural fiber breathes while you rest, but its biggest draw is cozy warmth that helps you sleep soundly on chilly nights. Wool-filled fiber beds are also long-lasting, providing decades of restful nights with proper care. You can even find organic wool toppers on Overstock made without chemicals for an all-natural sleeping experience.
Fiber Bed Cover Materials
Natural cotton is soft and breathable, so you can get a good night's rest at any time of year. The naturally hypoallergenic composition is also a plus if you suffer from allergies. Cotton tends to stretch slightly over time, but covers made with a cotton polyester blend offer added durability.
Warm and soft to the touch, a wool cover provides natural insulation to help you sleep soundly during the winter months. This material also wicks moisture to keep you dry and comfortable through the night. Some models feature reversible covers with a cooler material such as cotton on the other side, so you can simply flip the fiber bed over for hot summer nights. Genuine wool is also naturally resistant to dust mites and mold, making it a popular option for sleepers with allergies.
This synthetic material tends to cost less than natural fibers. Microfiber covers are smooth and silky to the touch, but they heat up a bit more than cotton covers. This material is also known for its durability, helping your fiber bed retain its shape even after nightly use and several rounds of washing.
Fiber Beds FAQ
How do you use a fiber bed?
Roll the fiber bed over your mattress and secure the elastic skirt or any elastic straps to the bottom of the mattress. Some manufacturers may recommend their fiber beds be left out of their packaging for a few days before use, giving them time to fluff up naturally. Before hopping into bed, secure a fitted sheet over the fiber bed and mattress, and add sheets and other bedding as usual. Some fitted sheets may not accommodate the extra height created by a fiber bed. In that case, look for fitted sheets with extra-deep pockets of at least 18 inches.
Can you wash a fiber bed?
While some fiber beds are machine washable, others should be dry cleaned or only spot cleaned on occasion. Follow the washing and care instructions that come with your fiber bed to ensure long-lasting quality and support. Between cleanings, you can also drape the mattress topper over your clothesline to refresh the fabrics and fill naturally with sun and a light breeze.
What does a fiber bed's thread count mean?
The thread count refers to the number of fibers per square inch that make up the mattress pad's cover. In general, higher thread counts mean more durability. Many fiber beds on Overstock include high thread counts of 230 and above for added strength, while others include a thread count of 1,000 or above to deliver an extra-soft feel for a luxurious night of sleep.
What are gussets on a fiber bed?
Gussets are the additional strips of material sewn to the sides of the mattress topper to give it a more definite shape. Side gussets help loft the topper and evenly distribute the filling. The result is added support and a plusher feel.
