Material Construction and Design

Viscosoft Select High-Density Mattress Topper isn't any ordinary memory foam mattress topper, thanks to its sophisticated construction and design. Below is an outline detailing what makes up this mattress topper.

Removable Cover

Viscosoft Select High Density memory foam topper has an easily removable Bamboo Rayon cover that is stretchy and breathable. It comes with a 4-sided zipper that allows you to unzip any three sides.

Since the cover is easy to remove and put back, there's no need to pull or shove the foam back into or from it. The removable cover is also machine washable, making it a great choice for buyers with a keen interest in overall cleanliness and hygienic sleep.

The Adjustable Corner Straps

Enter your text here...The mattress' adjustable straps are designed to fit perfectly under every corner of your mattress to keep the topper in place on the sleep surface. These corner straps prevent the topper from shifting on the surface of your mattress when you toss and turn. The double stitching on the straps allows for easy adjustability and enough room under every corner. This makes the Viscosoft Select High topper compatible with any mattress as thick as 18 inches.

Cooling Gel Memory Foam

Inside the Bamboo Rayon Cover is a 3-inch gel-infused memory foam block. Like other memory foam mattress toppers, such as the Molecule topper, this 3-inch block boosts temperature regulation- courtesy of the gel infusion, which dissipates body heat from the sleep surface.

Viscosoft Mattress Topper Performance Ratings

Memory foam mattress toppers perform differently based on their construction and design. Since this Viscosoft Topper employs a sophisticated design, let's find out how well it performs across various aspects.

viscosoft topper review - temperature regulation

As previously mentioned, Viscosoft Select High Density is unlike any ordinary memory foam mattress topper, especially when it comes to temperature control. Its cooling materials, which include the cool-to-the-touch cover and the cooling gel, help shield a hot sleeper perfectly against night sweat while keeping them cool throughout the night. Sleeping cool is vastly encouraged by sleep experts since it allows the body's temperature to drop—lowering your heart and respiration rate—granting you a more profound restorative rest. If you're shopping on a budget, you may want to opt for a low-cost cooling topper as seen in our Linenspa Mattress Topper Review. This topper features cooling gel beads that regulate body temperature to help hot sleepers sleep cool at night. 

Pressure Relief

This memory foam model is heavier than most mattress toppers on the market, offering great support and pressure relief. Basically, Viscosoft Select High Density does a great job relieving pain on painful pressure points along the hips and shoulders. This makes it a great fit for side sleepers and anyone looking to add pressure relieving features to their old mattress.

Motion Isolation

Memory foam mattresses are reputable for excellent motion isolation, and the same goes for memory foam toppers. Viscosoft Select High Density has great motion isolation making it ideal for couples, co-sleepers, or individuals who often sleep with their pets. This topper's high-density memory foam construction absorbs vibrations generated from the tossing and turning of sleeping partners. So, you can rest assured of less disturbance and enjoy a more refreshing blissful slumber.

Edge Support

Memory Foam Toppers don't perform well in the edge support department. But this topper's high density foam is solid enough to provide decent edge support. Its edges are sturdy enough, allowing you to roll to the edge without falling off the bed. However, the resultant edge support might not be sturdy if paired with a softer mattress.


When unwrapping the topper, it will immediately uncompress and expel some slight off-gassing smell. Since this gel memory foam mattress topper is made of high-quality CertiPUR-US certified foam, the slight off-gassing is very low in VOCs. So it won't cause you any respiratory issues.


Since the Select High Density High-density memory foam topper is thick and features high density materials, it is exceptionally durable compared to most other toppers on the market. The five-year warranty—much longer than most companies offer— also helps extend this topper's durability. So, from the time of purchase, expect a lifespan of 3 to 5 years on this memory foam topper or more with proper care and maintenance.

Sleeping Position and Body Weight

The comfort delivery of the Viscosoft Select High Density Topper depends on two major aspects: body weight and sleep position—like any topper out there. Here, we'll discuss how these factors affect sleepers' comfort on Viscosoft Select High Density.

Side Sleepers

Light and average-weight side sleepers will appreciate the nice pressure relief this topper has to offer. The sinkage of this gel-infused memory foam topper is just enough to relieve the pressure points of these sleepers along their curves. The topper is also comfy for heavyweight side sleepers weighing over 230 lbs. But those close to 300 lbs may experience excessive pressure buildup around the hips and shoulders.

Back Sleepers

Like light and Average weight side sleepers, back sleepers will also enjoy the excellent amount of comfort the Viscosoft topper offers. Generally, it is an excellent option for any back sleeper who needs body contouring and pressure point relief.

Stomach Sleepers

Viscosoft Select High Density Topper is an excellent option for lightweight stomach sleepers weighing less than 130 lbs. Unfortunately, this memory foam topper isn't ideal for average, heavyweight stomach sleepers. Its thickness and sinkage may cause the spine to misalign with the rest of the body. These sleepers are better off picking a mattress pad with a supportive sleep surface.

Mattress Topper Sizes and Dimensions

Like mattresses, mattress toppers also come in different sizes and dimensions. This is to help you choose the mattress topper size corresponding to your current bed's size and dimensions. Generally, the larger the topper size, the higher the price point. For instance, the queen-size Select High Density Topper is more expensive than the twin XL. Below is a highlight of various topper sizes and dimensions in the Viscosoft repository.

Pricing Information

Every Viscosoft Mattress Topper has different price tags ranging from affordable to the most expensive models. Viscosoft Reflex Gel Mattress Topper bears a simplistic design and is Viscosoft's cheapest option—a suitable pick for budget shoppers. On the other hand, the Select High Density and the Serene Hybrid model are a bit costly primarily due to their expensive high-quality materials.

Active Cooling Copper Topper is the most expensive model in the Viscosoft line, mainly because of the copper inclusion. Overall, the price tag on this Viscosoft Select High Density is reasonable for a buyer seeking to upgrade their existing mattress with a durable, high-quality mattress topper.

Viscosoft Select High Density Firmness Feel

The memory foam feel of this topper is plushy but also supportive to keep you elevated on the surface. Remember, the longer you lie on the topper, the more you'll sink into the foam. The foam is slow-responding and gives to your body weight over time, providing a snuggly cushioning around your curves. Generally, Viscosoft Select High Density ranks as a medium soft topper.

How the Viscosoft Select High Density Mattress Topper Feels on Different Mattresses

Mattress toppers are primarily designed to change the sleep surface of any mattress to boost its overall comfort. Since toppers feel different depending on the bed you place them on, below is how this gel-infused memory foam mattress topper feels on different mattresses.

Firm Mattresses

Placing the Viscosoft Select High Density Mattress Topper on a firm mattress brings the firmness of this mattress down to a medium firmness scale of 6.0/10. This level of firmness is primarily suitable for back and side sleepers who require more pressure relief from a firmer mattress.

Soft Mattresses

Since this high density foam topper is a memory foam model, placing it on a soft mattress will make your current mattress' surface plusher. That said, if your current mattress isn't relieving your pressure points efficiently, Viscosoft Select High Density might be an excellent upgrade it needs. Also, since the topper is supportive, the resultant surface won't feel excessively doughy.

Medium Firm Mattress

Viscosoft Select High Density's softness brings the sleep surface of a medium firm mattress closer to medium softness or generally medium. The resultant surface is a great fit for side sleepers who need more cushioning on their shoulders, knees, and hips. Moreover, it provides sleepers with proper spinal alignment, especially those who require extra body contouring.

Care and Maintenance

Remember, memory foam toppers are delicate and, therefore, can't be washed in a washing machine. Buyers are advised to stick strictly to spot-cleaning the layers with warm water and detergent. But since this Viscosoft Topper comes with a removable machine washable cover, cleaning is relatively easy.

If the cover wears out, you can purchase a mattress protector to shield against accidental spills and unexpected staining. Washing this topper's memory foam slab may compromise its durability and performance.

Warranty, Shipping, and Trial Policies

Most companies in the sleep industry offer their customers warranties, free shipping, and sleep trials, and so does Viscosoft. Below is a comprehensive outline of Viscosoft's policies regarding these three factors.

The company offers free shipping for all Viscosoft Mattress Toppers but only to addresses within the contiguous U.S. Delivery within this region is usually 5 to 7 business days. Buyers outside the contiguous U.S. are charged shipping fees. And delivery may take time, depending on your location. Like other models, the Viscosoft High Density topper will arrive at your doorstep in a box.


Typically, most toppers don't come with a warranty. However, this Viscosoft Select High Density Topper is among the few that boast longer-than-average warranties. In case of any manufacturing defects, Viscosoft will repair or replace it with another.

Like any warranty, there are policies about this Viscosoft Topper 5-year warranty. For instance, the company allows for a single bed-wetting episode if a young child or a sleeper with inconsistent issues is using the topper. They also allow for one-time spills but repeated staining and bed-wetting incidents will render the warranty void.

Other aspects the warranty covers include; physical issues that cause the foams or other materials to split or crack or tear the fabric that reveals stitching. Remember, this warranty is only available to the original buyers. Purchasing this Viscosoft Topper from the original owner won't grant you its 5-year warranty.

Sleep Trial and Return

Viscosoft Select High Density Topper comes with a 60-night risk-free trial. The trial period gives your body enough time to adjust properly to the topper and helps you decide whether or not it meets your comfort needs.

If you're unsatisfied with the topper, you can always return it but within the stipulated 60-day trial period for a full refund. Buyers who wish to exchange this high density topper with a different model must return the original one first.

Closing Thoughts

Viscosoft Select High Density Topper guarantees to boost your sleep quality and overall comfort. Though a bit on the high-end spectrum for budget shoppers, purchasing this memory foam mattress topper will be worth every penny of your investment—primarily because it also comes with a 60-day sleep trial, a 5-year warranty, and free shipping. Plus, it checks many other boxes on the average buyer's "must have" list: conforming, cushioning, pressure-relieving, and cooling. If you want to give your old mattress a refreshing upgrade, it might be time to check out the Viscosoft Select High Density Topper.
