How to Place an Eggcrate Foam Mattress Topper on a Bed

An eggcrate foam mattress topper is a simple way to make a hard or lumpy mattress more comfortable and supportive. The top of the eggcrate foam mattress topper resembles an egg carton with a bumpy surface designed to improve back support, air circulation and shock resistance while reducing bed sores (for bedridden people). You can use an eggcrate foam mattress topper on any mattress, including feather, latex, air, water and inner spring mattresses. You cannot use it on a memory foam mattress.


Strip your bed of all bedding until only the bare mattress is visible.

Spread the eggcrate foam mattress topper across the mattress with the bumpy side facing up and the flat side down until it evenly covers the surface area.

Remake the bed by putting the sheets right on top of the eggcrate foam mattress topper.
