This is an unbiased review of the Pinzon Basics Overfilled Ultra Soft Microplush Mattress Pad. Perhaps you have an older mattress, or a mattress that simply isn’t all that comfortable. The most affordable way to change that is finding a good mattress pad. There are a variety of types, and in this case the Pinzon mattress topper feels more like a pillow top. It is made to be soft and feel like it is filled with down feathers, although it is really a polyester filling.
One of the first things you’ll notice is how full this pad is. They definitely don’t skimp on the filling, so you have plenty of padding to keep you warm and comfy. Many mattress pads which aren’t filled don’t provide near the level of comfort that the Pinzon will. That said, you shouldn’t machine wash this product. If it needs cleaning, you may need to take it to a dry cleaner or simply clean it with a damp rag. If anything, the inconvenience of washing this would be the 1 downside in our view. However, you really don’t want to take the chance on messing this mattress pad up with a run through the washing machine.
The pad does a great job of staying in place. You may have had other mattress pads that tend to bunch up or go to one side or the other. This one is above average in that regard. Don’t expect that this will make a really firm mattress into a cloud, but it certainly will move you in that direction. If you like a soft mattress, you’ll like what this does for the feel of your bed. It can’t cover up a terrible mattress completely, but again you can’t go wrong for the price.
If comparing a pillow-top mattress pad to memory foam, one small benefit is that you don’t have to let this product air out for 48 hours. In the grand scheme of things that isn’t much time if you’d prefer memory foam, but as soon as this topper arrives you can go ahead and put it on your bed and enjoy.
