Room Essential Mattress Pad from Target

I realize this is a rather silly topic, but I have a love/hate relationship with mattress pads and feel pretty strongly about it.  I had a mattress pad that I used for years and loved, it was so soft and I believe it definitely enhanced my sheets and the comfort and feel of my bed in general.  I slept so well in that bed, I was such a happy camper everyday.  Then when I moved in with my now fiance, we had to get rid of my bed because it was a full size, and his was a queen.  He didn't have a mattress pad, and I convinced him that it was essential to a good night sleep.  So he got one, but he made the mistake of buying a vinyl one.  It was plastic-ky and crinkly that we used it for a few days and took it off then forgot about it and forgot about the whole mattress pad business altogether.  But since we just got the new Westin Heavenly bed a couple weeks ago, I thought it would probably be a good idea to protect the new mattress so I put the pad back on.  But my goodness, this time I hated this pad even more than I remember!  It was loud and made the bed so hot.  It's seriously made of the same material as a tarp.  I should go camping with it!  It's definitely water-proof, that is for sure, but it also does not breath at all.  I would literally wake up in the middle of the night drenched - and I'm usually the type that gets cold easily.  So after 3 days or so, I had enough of it again.

Yesterday we went to Target (love that place!) to pick up some stuff and I was determined to find a new mattress pad.  This time we knew we didn't want one made of vinyl, and I didn't care if it was water-proof or not.  It's not like we need a pee guard!  LOL!  I just wanted it to be good enough to keep sweat and whatnot from leaking through to the mattress.  I also didn't want a super padded pad, since my mattress is a pillow top, that would just be over kill.  So after feeling every single one they carried, we finally settled on the target brand Room Essential cotton blend pad.  I don't think Target carries it on their website, so the link is actually to the same brand water-proof one.  But from the reviews it sounds like it's not really water-proof.



The cotton blend pad I got was one of the cheapest at the store, but it felt the softest to me without being too thick.  Still I was having doubts just because with these things you usually get what you pay for - it's only like $19 or whatever.  But I was so happy sleeping on it last night!  It adds just the right amount of softness without the extra warmth.  It seemed to breath well and I slept through the night without waking up from sweating my butt off!  What a treat.  I can't believe it's actually the perfect pad for me.  So the love affair with mattress pad is back on!

  1. Ok, I know that it doesn't get very cold where you are. . .however, I just have to put in a plug for HEATED mattress pads. Oh my God, you don't know heavenly comfort until you've owned a heated mattress pad (oh, and having a pillow top mattress doesn't hurt). AND to top it off, light-blocking blinds are the best. You can get 'em from JC Penny's, but you have to buy the most expensive ones. For your readers that live in a cold climate, a humidifier also makes night much more pleasant . . . actually, it makes the morning better because you don't wake up all itchy and flakes :)

  3. @andrea: The heated pad does sound divine! I think it would make me too hot here, but if I lived in a colder climate I would be all over that. Nothing like getting into a warm bed! I have some blinds in the bedroom that makes my room soooo dark, I love it, but that plus the comfy bed makes it really hard to get up. =)

    @Becky: Yay! I didn't know Target wasn't in Canada. You will have fun there! They have cute stuff for very reasonable price.

  8. How do you sleep on the coldest nights when the winter comes with its fearing cold? Most people, who live in cold climatic zones, use to use a fireplace to warm their rooms. Although, sometimes the mere warm coming out of the fireplace doesn’t seem to be sufficient. You might take an electric blanket to cover the situation. But, it won’t be still able to solve your problem as it slips off. An electric mattress pad like the Sunbeam Therapeutic Heated Mattress Pad can be the right solution here!
