Why Buy A Lucid Mattress Topper?
One thing we love about Lucid’s mattress toppers is the wide range of options available. Whether you want a thin 2” topper to add just a bit of softness to your mattress or a 4” luxurious topper to completely change the feel, Lucid has them all.
While most Lucid toppers are memory foam, they offer choices. There’s gel memory foam, lavender memory foam, and bamboo charcoal memory foam – each designed to provide specific benefits.
Lucid also sells a latex topper and a down alternative topper if you are looking for something a bit different.
All Lucid mattress toppers are designed to soften a too-firm bed and improve pressure point relief. If you want to firm-up a soft bed, look somewhere else.
Here are a few more reasons to get one of Lucid’s mattress toppers.

Other Lucid Toppers
Lucid Memory Foam Mattress Toppers
If you are shopping on a budget, get one of Lucid's memory foam toppers. They are just memory foam; they don't contain any infused materials like gel or charcoal.
But they are great if you want to enjoy deeper body contouring and pressure point relief.
The 2” topper is ideal if you want to add just a little bit of softness to your mattress. It's soft but because it is only 2” thick, you won't sink in too deep.
If you need an even softer feel or you have an extra-firm mattress, get the 3” topper. And if you want as much plushness as you can get, get the thick 4” topper.
The 4” is best for heavy sleepers who need to sink deeper to enjoy maximum pressure point relief.
Lucid also sells a 2” zoned memory foam topper.
The only downside of the Lucid memory foam mattress toppers is that they can make your bed a bit too warm since they have no cooling technology. If you sleep hot, we recommend one of Lucid's Bamboo charcoal or gel memory foam toppers instead.
Lucid Lavender Memory Foam Toppers
If you want a soft mattress topper that also smells nice, we recommend one of Lucid's lavender memory foam toppers.
These toppers are infused with the lavender scent to help you calm down during bedtime and sleep better.
The lavender scent is a bit too strong at first, but it goes down to a nice subtle scent after a few hours. The scent doesn't last forever though; usually just a couple of weeks or so.
There's also a 2 inch and 3 inch zoned lavender memory foam topper with five support zones. The zoned design improves overall support and body contouring. It’s especially great for back pain sufferers.
Lucid Gel Memory Foam Toppers
Lucid gel memory foam mattress toppers are the best for hot sleepers and anyone who finds their current mattress too hot.
Gel infused into the memory foam absorbs body heat and dissipates it away from the bed.
If you want an even more luxurious feel, Lucid has a 2-layer 4” topper consisting of down alternative and memory foam.
Lucid also sells an advanced 2” gel memory foam topper that’s made with fast response memory foam. It feels a tad springier than other Lucid memory foam mattress toppers.
Lucid Charcoal Memory Foam Toppers
These Lucid memory foam toppers are infused with finely ground bamboo charcoal. The charcoal helps with odor, moisture and temperature control.
In other words, your bed will feel fresher, it’ll keep you dry (for night sweaters) and you’ll sleep cooler.
Other Lucid Mattress Toppers
If you are not a big fan of memory foam toppers, Lucid offers three other options.
3” Traditional Foam Topper
There’s the 2” traditional foam topper for those who love the soft feel of foam but find memory foam overly soft or hot.
The traditional foam topper is made with polyfoam. It retains less heat than memory foam and it’s more responsive. Oh, it’s also cheaper, making it a great choice if you are on a budget.
2” Dunlop Latex Topper
If you don't want to sleep on foam at all, try the Lucid 2” Dunlop latex topper. Like the memory foam toppers, it's designed to soften a too-firm mattress but it doesn't have the same deep hug as memory foam.
The latex topper is great for those who want more support (less sinking) and responsiveness from their mattress topper. It’s especially ideal for back and stomach sleepers. We also highly recommend it to hot sleepers since latex doesn't trap heat.
Note that the latex topper is not all natural. It's made with 50% synthetic and 50% natural latex. It's more expensive than the memory foam toppers, but cheaper than organic and natural latex toppers.
3” Down Alternative Topper
The other non-foam Lucid topper is the 3” down alternative fiber topper.
It consists of plush microfiber filling and a 100% cotton percale cover, which helps with breathability.
The down alternative topper is a good choice for those who find memory foam too soft. The microfiber topper is still soft but you won’t sink into it like you would a memory foam topper. It’s perfect for softening a firm mattress without compromising support.
Issues & Complaints
One complaint we and other reviewers have with Lucid’s memory foam toppers is that they can be a bit delicate.
If your mattress sags in the middle, the Lucid topper may eventually split down the middle.
Generally, Lucid memory foam toppers are not that long-lasting. Even with good care, the average lifespan is about 3 years with every night use.
That said, the prices are excellent – and most foam toppers don’t last much longer.
Another issue is temperature control.
The Lucid gel and bamboo charcoal memory foam toppers do help with cooling, but they are in our opinion not the best choices for hot sleepers because gel memory foam tends to get warm after a few hours, and bamboo charcoal has limited cooling effect.
Lucid Mattress Toppers Returns & Warranty
Lucid offers a 30-day return period for all their mattress toppers. Returns are free.
They also offer a 3-year warranty on any mattress topper of your choice.
Lucid Mattress Toppers FAQs
Are Lucid mattress toppers worth it?
Which is the best Lucid mattress topper for back pain?
The Lucid 5-zone memory foam mattress topper (lavender or gel) is the best choice for relieving back pain.
The zoned design ensures your spine is properly aligned and your back gets the right balance of support and pressure relief.
Which is the best Lucid mattress topper for hot sleepers?
Lucid gel and bamboo charcoal memory foam toppers are great for mild to average hot sleepers. For extra-hot sleepers, we recommend the Lucid Dunlop latex mattress topper.
Who are Lucid mattress toppers best for?
Lucid mattress toppers are best for anyone who’s looking to soften their too-firm mattress and enjoy better pressure point relief.
The amount of softness you add to your current mattress depends on the thickness of the topper. 2” Lucid toppers add the least amount of softness while the 4” toppers are the most plush.
