The Emma mattress topper certainly makes your mattress feel softer.
Even though one side of the topper is softer and the other firmer, we'd rate it as a medium-firm topper.
We've rated the Emma mattress topper's soft side at 5 out of 10 on our Sleep Hero firmness scale and the medium-firm side at 6 out of 10.
The sides are pretty similar, but there is still enough difference to make an impact.
Does the topper make your mattress more comfortable?
We were lucky enough to try the topper for several weeks and thought it made the mattress comfy.
That said, the comfort of a mattress topper does depend quite significantly on the mattress you pair it with.
Logically, it would make sense to pair the Emma mattress topper with any of the Emma mattresses.
We like the firmer Emma Hybrid mattress.
But, of course, you can also place the Emma topper on any other mattress. We've given some recommendations for high-quality mattresses at the bottom of this article.
The Emma topper is exceptionally comfortable when combined with a firm mattress, like a spring mattress, as it then acts as an additional upper comfort layer.
Good body support
In our experience, the Emma mattress topper supports the body well, mainly due to the cold foam layer.
It also provides a pleasant surface to lie on, primarily due to the elastic memory foam layer.
It also relieves pressure points, preventing lower back pain.
We also noticed that the mattress topper offers excellent spinal alignment, which is particularly important for side sleepers.
If you sleep on your side, it's important to sink in a little deeper in the shoulder and pelvic areas to keep your spine straight.
The Emma topper allows for this additional sinkage.
Two sides, one topper
Here’s a great thing about the Emma mattress topper: You can use both sides!
The one side is softer, providing that body-hugging comfort, and the other is more medium-firm and offers better support.
Choose the side that works best for you.
