Frequently asked questions

Super Toppers will begin shipping on June 1, 2024. Gel and Copper Toppers require 1 business day for processing and 2-4 days for shipping. Tracking information will be automatically provided upon shipment. Please allow 2-6 business days for delivery. Shipping is defaulted to free ground shipping, with the option for expedited shipping available at checkout.

If your order status shows as 'delivered' but you can't find it, please contact the carrier.

Occasionally, the status may be updated prematurely if the delivery truck is nearby, even though the item is still in transit. Allow 24 hours to pass, then consider checking with neighbors to see if the package was mistakenly delivered to them. If 48 hours have elapsed and the package remains missing, and you opted for Route Shipping Protection at checkout, please reach out to them for further assistance. 

We ship items Monday to Friday, with a cut-off time of 11am EST. If you cancel your order over the weekend or after the 11am EST cut-off time, we can cancel it before shipping. However, if your order is placed in the morning before the cut-off time, it will ship out as scheduled. In such cases, you will need to receive and return the item for a refund.

While we strive to cancel orders promptly, we cannot be held responsible for shipments with incorrect size, style, or addresses. We hope to intercept them before shipping whenever possible.

Our 3-inch toppers are an excellent choice for side sleepers seeking additional comfort and protection on a dorm mattress, making them a popular option among students. Alternatively, our 2-inch topper is ideal for individuals who prefer a medium-firm sleep experience or for those with height restrictions on top bunks.

Sleepyhead warrants any damages due to defects in materials and craftsmanship when used for five years from the date of original purchase.

Please note that Sleepyhead's warranty does not cover accessories, commercial/rental use, failures stemming from use, abuse, or excessive wear or cover damage due to pet damage, color fading, failure to follow washing instructions, or damage due to burns, odors, mold, ink stains, water/fire, natural disaster, or bodily fluids.

If you discover a defect in your Sleepyhead mattress topper, send us an email: to let us know what's going on. Please be sure to include a video, 4 pictures of the damage, a picture of the products batch number and date of purchase or order number.

Mattress pads and protectors have the potential to trap heat and moisture, creating an environment conducive to mold and mildew growth. If you choose to use a mattress pad or protector, you'll need to clean your topper cover twice as often as you would without the protector. Our topper covers are designed to provide both protection and comfort independently. However, combining either item with our topper can hinder the benefits of the topper itself.

If cleanliness or spill prevention is a concern, regular cleaning of a protector will be necessary.

Dorm beds typically measure 6-8 inches in thickness. For these beds, we recommend using standard-sized fitted sheets. These sheets are designed to match the size of the mattress and can comfortably accommodate both the mattress and our Sleepyhead 2-3 inch mattress toppers. We recommend sheets that are 10-12 inches deep.

For off-campus beds we suggest using deep sheets, 12-15 inches, if the bed is thicker than 10-inches without the topper.

Our topper cover is not waterproof because it would compromise breathability of the cover and overall benefits of the foam. The covers are machine washable and can be dried on low heat. However, please note that the foam cannot be machine washed.

To clean your Sleepyhead mattress topper, follow these steps:

1. Remove all bedding, including the topper cover.

2. Vacuum to remove debris.

3. Spot clean stains with mild detergent or a mixture of water and vinegar.

4. Air dry thoroughly.

5. Sprinkle with baking soda for freshness.

6. Regularly rotate the topper for even wear.

For a detailed guide, refer to the original blog post on Sleepyhead's website here.

Sleepyhead toppers are equipped with adjustable straps and a non-slip cover. These features are designed to prevent the topper from sliding around on your mattress, ensuring a stable and comfortable sleep surface. Be sure to pair it with well-fitted sheets.

If you notice that your bed is particularly slippery, you can use Command strips or a non-slip rug pad for added stability.

While some individuals may be more sensitive to smells than others, we take pride in the minimal scent of our toppers. If you do detect a slight odor, we recommend airing out the topper for 24-72 hours before use. Our customer reviews serve as additional assurance that Sleepyhead's products do not have any lingering odors.

The expansion time of Sleepyhead Mattress Toppers can range from 30 minutes to 12 hours. However, you can sleep on it right away without harming the material.

The topper can remain in the box for 6-12 months without affecting its quality. However, it's best to avoid storing it in a hot garage and instead keep it at room temperature. The same applies to storing the topper after use.

Once the topper is open, we recommend rolling it up like a sleeping bag and using a vacuum-sealed bag to compress it before storing it at room temperature.

For detailed instructions on how to store or re-package your topper, you may find our blog helpful. You can read it here.

Because we use high-quality, high-density, and resilient foams, we’re able to compress the Sleepyhead mattress topper without undermining its integrity. Using a unique compression machine, we ensure that no undue pressure is put on any part of the sleep surface.
