Mattress Covers

If you want to shield a mattress from spills, potty training accidents, or pet messes, we recommend the SafeRest Premium Mattress Protector. After 240 hours researching and testing 14 protectors, we found the SafeRest did the best job at keeping our mattress dry, while also feeling comfortable to sleep on. And after multiple washes, it retained its waterproofing better than almost any other protector we tried.

Comfortable: Because these protectors are a barrier between your sheets and your mattress, we wanted to make sure they felt good to sleep on. No overheating, no bunching, no sliding around on the bed. We paid attention to complaints of discomfort in user reviews.

The Priva was comfortable to sleep on, but it did bunch a little in the night. Not so much that it moved away from the body, making the mattress vulnerable, but just enough that we woke up with a slight lump under our back. (This was also an issue with the Linenspa pad.) The Priva comes in three sizes: 18 by 22 inches, 24 by 34 inches, and 34 by 52 inches. We tested the largest size, which provides sufficient coverage under an adult body.

Mattresses are both durable and easy to destroy. If you take care of your mattress, it can last you for a decade or more. Yet one spill can ruin it. The best way to protect your bed from destruction is to buy and install a mattress protector.

The best mattress protectors keep your bed safe from accidents, including spills, and keep allergens such as dust mites from building up. If you want to protect against bed bugs, consider a mattress encasement, which completely encloses your bed.

To find the best mattress protectors for this guide, I tested 12 options by sleeping on them for at least two nights and putting them through several objective tests. I also interviewed Rebecca Robbins, PhD, associate scientist at Brigham and Women's Hospital and instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School. Below, we highlight our top picks, what else we recommend, and answer common questions.

When I first unboxed the Purple Mattress Protector, I thought it was too thin to protect my mattress from anything. It turns out my initial assumptions were just plain wrong. Both before and after washing the protector five times, no liquids leaked through. It was one of two models we tested that absorbed more than 75% of the liquids we poured on it, which may be helpful for containing accidents.

Due to its thin construction, I found it to be one of the most comfortable mattress protectors. It made minor rustling noises, but they weren't disconcerting. After sleeping on the protector overnight, it registered one of the hottest temperatures the next morning, but it cooled down quickly when I got up. Whereas many mattress protectors only have a polyurethane protective backing on the portion that covers the top of your mattress, the Purple offers protection on the sides of the mattress too.

We tested four mattress protectors that cost less than $30. Of those, the SafeRest Premium Mattress Protector performed the best. In addition to remaining leak free in our tests, it was one of the best at staying cool and dissipating heat.

The SafeRest protector can fit a broad range of mattresses up to 18 inches thick. As with many protectors, the part that rests on top of your mattress is made of a different material than the skirt that goes around the sides. The top is waterproof, while the sides are not. Fortunately, the top fit my mattress well and covered it to the edges, even after putting it through the washer and dryer five times.

When researching this guide, one of the complaints I heard about mattress protectors is that they can trap heat and cause sleepers to overheat. So I looked at how hot the mattress protectors got after sleeping on them and how quickly the heat dissipated. The Helix Mattress Protector was one of the best at staying cool and dissipating heat quickly. In fact, within two minutes of getting up from the bed, the surface temperature plunged more than 14 degrees.

The Helix didn't perform poorly in any of the categories we evaluated. It passed the leakage tests with flying colors both before and after putting it through five washing and drying cycles. The protector also didn't show any shrinkage after the washings, which is important since the waterproof TPU backing is only on the part of the protector that covers the mattress top and not on the skirting.

Bed bugs can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to get rid of, and even then, there's no guarantee they won't come back. So it's worth the $22 investment to cover your mattress with a full encasement. The best encasement I tested is the Utopia Bedding Zippered Mattress Encasement.

The biggest pain with any encasement is putting it on. Fortunately, the Utopia Bedding encasement has a wide zippered opening that makes it easier to slide over your mattress as you hold it up vertically. Once zipped, there's a velcro flap that keeps the slider body and pull tab in place and ensures there aren't any holes for bed bugs to sneak through.

Lastly, it's worth noting that no encasement protects you from getting bed bugs. Instead, it protects your mattress, an expensive investment, from harboring bed bugs that can destroy it over time. If a mattress is already riddled with bed bugs, an encasement can also trap them inside. But you need to keep it on for at least 12 months to kill all the bugs, and you'll still need to treat your home.

The OEKO-TEX and FSC-certified Nolah Bamboo Mattress Protector is perhaps the most eco-friendly mattress protector I tested. Best of all, it functions excellently. While sleeping on it, I didn't even notice a protector under my fitted sheet and it doesn't make any crinkly sounds when you move around.

I also liked that the Nolah protector fit the 8-inch-thick and 15-inch-thick mattresses I tested on. Putting it on was effortless. Although there aren't any labels to show the correct orientation, the logo goes to the left at the foot of the bed.

Nolah makes excellent mattress protectors, and the OEKO-TEX and GOTS-certified Organic Cotton Mattress Protector is no exception. It's made of polyester for waterproofing and cotton for comfort and cooling. I was impressed with how cool the protector remained during the night, and when I got up from it, the remaining heat dissipated quickly.

Both before and after washing it five times, the Nolah protector remained waterproof in our leakage tests. However, the liquid pools on the surface rather than absorbing so it could run down the sides of the protector, which lack waterproofing. It fit easily on both the 8-inch-thick and 15-inch-thick test mattresses. I wish it had labels indicating the head/foot of the bed, but I quickly caught on that the Nolah logo goes to the left at the foot of the bed.

I personally tested all of the mattress protectors in this guide. In addition to sleeping on each protector, there are many objective tests I put each model through. The most important factors to consider when choosing a mattress protector are comfort, protection, and fit.

Comfort: I slept on each of the mattress protectors (with a fitted sheet in place) and rated how comfortable they felt on a scale of 1 to 5. Most of the protectors were barely noticeable and none scored below a 3. I also used a laser thermometer to compare the temperatures before lying on the protector, after lying on it for at least an hour, and two minutes after getting up. This told me how well the protector dissipated heat. To control the variables that might affect comfort, I used the same mattress and sheets to test each model.

Protection: I placed a sheet of paper towel in a plastic tray and set it beneath the center of each mattress protector. Next, I poured eight ounces of blue water on top of each protector. Then I placed a 2-pound weight on the liquid to simulate someone lying on it. I let the water sit for two hours before checking to see if it leaked through. I then washed and dried each of the protectors five times and performed the test again. Though I wasn't able to test for them, I also noted if the protectors are designed to protect against dust mites and bed bugs.

Fit: I put each protector on a variety of mattresses ranging in thickness from 10 inches to 14 inches and noted how difficult it was to put it on, if the protector bunched up, if the protective top covered the whole mattress top, and whether it stayed put or crept up the corners over the course of the night. Next, I washed and dried the protector five times and performed the test again.

Noise: The polyurethane used as waterproofing for most mattress protectors sometimes makes a crackling sound as you move in the night. This sound has the potential to lead to restless sleep, so I compared all of the protectors head-to-head to see how loud they are. I crinkled each one in my hands. As I did this, I put the protectors in order from quietest to loudest. I kept doing this until I was confident my order was accurate.

Trial and Warranty: The most foolproof way to know if a mattress protector is comfortable for you is to sleep on it for an extended period, so a long trial is a must. I looked at the length of the trial period (30 nights was the median of the protectors I tested) and whether there are hidden return fees. I also looked at the warranty length (5 years was the median of the models I tested).

This mattress protector is designed to fit the Nestig Wave, Cloud and Snow mini mattresses. And please note, Nestig mini cribs are custom sizes; If you would like to use this with a non-Nestig mattress, please check to ensure the dimensions will work for you!Dimensions: 20 in. wide x 27.5 in. long

Hospital beds refer to a variety of medical devices that are classified as beds. FDA regulations classify hospital beds as Class I and Class II devices. These devices are used for patients in acute care, long-term care, or home care settings. A hospital bed system encompasses the bed frame and its components, including the bed side rails, head and foot board, the mattress, and any accessories added to the bed, such a detachable mattress cover. 041b061a72
