Bedding Underlay

Last Updated Nov 4, 2011 · Written by


Are you looking to make your night's sleep even more comfortable?  While the mattress itself is vital, a good underlay can make a massive difference.  Read on to learn more.

Types of Bedding Underlay

There are different types of underlay depending on your requirements.  Some types include:

  • Wool -- wool underlay is great for all seasons, especially winter, as it is soft, warm, and luxurious.  It is also non-allergenic and allows air to circulate.
  • Reversible -- these are ideal if you want an underlay that can be used no matter what the season.  One side is for use in summer (cooler) and the other for use in winter (warmer).  Simply flip it as needed.
  • Magnetic -- this underlay can be used with wool or cotton material, and the magnets are great for helping to relieve aches and pains.
  • Cotton -- this is a great choice as cotton is breathable, non-allergenic, absorbs moisture well, and is very comfortable.
  • Foam -- foam underlay adds an extra dimension of comfort to your bed, but be aware that it may not be the best at absorbing moisture.

Why Use Bedding Underlay?

Bedding underlay can be useful for a number of reasons.  Firstly, they are designed to make sleeping an easier and more comfortable process.  They do this by adding an extra layer of padding to the bed.  Underlay can be helpful for regulating your body temperature so that you don't get too hot or too cold.  They also help to reduce moisture levels in the bed, so sweating becomes less of an issue.

Choosing Bedding Underlay

When choosing your underlay, pick one that fits your budget and also meets your comfort requirements. Make sure that you get the right size for your bed, as an ill fitting underlay can move around and actually cause discomfort.  Always make sure that you follow the laundering instructions given by the manufacturer to ensure that the underlay performs as it should, and to extend its life.
