How to place an egg crate foam mattress topper on a bed

Updated March 23, 2017

People spend many hours a night lying on their mattresses. Sometimes these mattresses can be too firm and cause great discomfort. If your mattress is not as soft and plush as you wish, purchasing an egg crate foam mattress topper can help. You can place egg crate foam mattress toppers on top of any mattress except for a memory foam mattress, and they are significantly cheaper than other types of mattress toppers.

  1. Remove everything from your mattress. Before you attempt to place an egg crate foam mattress topper on your bed, remove all sheets, comforters and pillows from your mattress. It is best to place the egg crate topper directly on your mattress.

  2. Take the egg crate out of its packaging and unravel the mattress topper.

  3. Lay the egg crate evenly on the mattress. Lay the flat side of the egg crate foam mattress topper flat against the mattress, leaving the "egg-shaped" crates to stick up towards the ceiling. These bumps and grooves will help provide the most comfort and support for your back.

  4. Put all of the sheets and comforters back on the mattress as normal. Consider the egg crate foam mattress topper part of your mattress, and make your bed as you normally would.
