Air beds are good temporary mattresses for overnight guests. It can be hard to find a good mattress topper for an air bed, though, because many toppers slide right off. Liz Ackerman, a sleep expert at Mattress Discounters in Sparks, Nevada, says finding a good topper can make the experience of sleeping on an air bed much more enjoyable. Ackerman says her top pick is a high quality memory foam mattress topper and her second choice is a plush feather topper.

Memory Foam

Memory Foam mattress toppers are very comfortable to sleep on because the memory material moulds to your shape and holds you in a snug position. This mattress topper will also provide more stability on a raised air bed because memory foam mattresses have a slightly firm texture. The material, which was developed by NASA, conforms to body contours and then bounces back to its original shape.

Feather Topper

A fluffy feather topper is also a good choice for a raised air bed. The feather filling spreads out evenly on the bed and wraps your body in comfort. Feather toppers are thicker than a memory foam mattress topper. They're good for people who enjoy sleeping on soft beds.


Consider putting an extra fitted sheet on your air bed to help the mattress topper stay in place. You can also buy straps at a mattress store to attach the topper on all four corners.
