I’m going to look at how it adjusts the firmness of your bed, take a look at its overall feel and check out its durability.
Do you want to find out if this is the right mattress topper for you?
This is the three inch high density memory foam topper. This is their best seller and it comes in an original, a lavender infused and a charcoal infused.
But here I’m specifically looking at the original three-inch topper.
Is this the right one for you?
Let’s get started!

Let’s take a deep dive into the construction of the three inch ViscoSoft mattress topper.
Beginning with the cover, you got a really nice bamboo rayon material on top and it’s also detachable, so you can take it right off, throw it in the washing machine and keep it clean.
Another really great element are the straps at the bottom. They help it stay secure to the edge of the bed, so there won’t be any slipping.
Finally you have a mesh cover at the very bottom. This not only promotes breathability, but it also helps it stay secure to the top of the bed.
Moving on to the comfort layer, it is made with three inches of high density memory foam and it’s infused with gel, which helps in cooling. It’s a great pick if you tend to sleep hot at night.
Additionally this is a lot heavier than other mattress toppers you’ll find on the market, so it provides a good amount of support.
What does this all mean?
When it comes to cooling, the ViscoSoft mattress topper should prevent you from sleeping too hot at night.
There are several reasons for this.
It’s got a temperature controlled surface and a nice breathable cover on top. The foam is nice and ventilated, so it promotes airflow.
Moving on to durability.
In general, mattress toppers are really great for extending the lifespan of your mattress.
If you have a bed that’s starting to sag or it’s not providing that amount of comfort that you once had, mattress toppers are a great way to fix that.
The ViscoseSoft topper is a very durable material. It’s a lot heavier than other mattress toppers out there. I expect it to last between three and five years.
Finally the ViscoSoft mattress topper is really great at isolating motion.
What that means is if you’re sharing a bed with a partner and they shift sleeping positions in the night, this mattress topper will help prevent you from feeling that movement.
That’s because it’s made out of a really high density memory foam and when you press into it, the motion really stays right where it is, it’s not going to travel super far.
Firmness and Feel
Now let’s move on to firmness and feel.
The ViscoSoft mattress topper should soften your mattress by about two points.
For example, if you have an eight point mattress, which is pretty firm as far as mattresses go, and then you put this on top, it’s gonna feel a lot more like a six.
When it comes to feel, it does have a nice bit of responsiveness to it.
It’s not super slow moving, but when you lay down in it, you will really feel that memory foam sinking in around you. It has some great body contouring.
But I will say it’s kind of difficult to move around on this mattress topper.
How does the ViscoSoft mattress topper feel in different sleeping positions.
When I’m lying on my back, I feel a really good amount of comfort. The gel memory foam provides some great body contouring.
Moving on to my side, I also feel some awesome pressure relief on my shoulders and my hips, which is exactly what you’re looking for if you sleep on your side.
I will say though it’s not a great pick if you’re a stomach sleeper. Generally stomach sleepers want to sleep on a firmer surface, so that the body stays in alignment.
And because this is pretty soft, you’ll feel your hips sinking in a bit, which could cause some lower back pain.
Now I’m going to talk about some of the pros and cons of the ViscoSoft mattress topper.
Starting with the pros, the ViscoSoft mattress topper is great if you’re looking for an affordable option.
This is a lot less expensive than some other toppers there are on the market. So it’s great if you’re on a budget.
Second of all, if you’re looking for a memory foam mattress topper, but you’re worried about it trapping heat, this is also a great pick, because it has many different cooling features involved, which should really help dissipate heat.
Third, it’s super easy to clean. There’s a zipper at the bottom. You can take it off, throw it in the washing machine and it will always be nice and fresh.
And finally, it has a great fit to the side of the bed. Adjustable straps keep it very very secure to the mattress.
Moving on to some of the cons for the ViscoSoft mattress topper.
First of all, if you’re not a fan of that memory foam feel or you don’t want to sink into your topper, this isn’t the best pick for you. It does provide great body contouring, but you will kind of sink deeply into the layers.
Second of all, it’s not super easy to move around on this mattress. If you have mobility issues or if that’s just not your preferred feel, you might want to look for something else.
Third, it’s not a great pick for stomach sleepers. This is a very soft mattress topper so you will feel your hips sink in and get out of alignment.
Finally this mattress topper does take about two days to off gas and expand when it comes to your house. You might notice a little bit of a chemical smell at first. It completely fades after two days, but if you’re looking for something to use right away, this is something to think about.
Finally I’m going to go over some additional info about the ViscoSoft mattress topper.
