Pinzon Overfilled Ultra Soft Microplush Mattress Pad Review
If you’ve found it difficult to settle in for a solid night’s sleep because your bed is too firm, you may need to consider adding a mattress topper to your sleep space. On top of that, if you tend to get cold at night, regardless of how many blankets you use (or maybe you can’t stand being buried by blankets), you may also benefit from the Pinzon overfilled ultra-soft microplush mattress pad.
The Pinzon overfilled ultra-soft microplush mattress pad was created to help provide a comfortable sleep for people who have problems with firm mattresses. The way it’s made creates a thick surface that offers just the right amount of structured support with enough cushion to avoid tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable. The overfilled material also aids in creating a warmer sleep space for those who have problems maintaining body heat due to both external and internal temperature control problems.
This product is excellent for anyone suffering from morning pain in legs, back, hips, and neck areas. It is also ideal for people who have trouble with getting chilled at night. However, if you suffer from night sweats or overheating during the night, you should try something different, as this particular mattress pad isn’t meant to cool during the night.
- Adds softness and comfort to firm mattresses
- Deep pockets to fit all mattress depths (up to 18 inches)
- Fitted with removable, washable cover
- Sleeps warm – not for cooling
- Very large for washers – can flood

The best part of the Pinzon Overfilled Ultra Soft Microplush Mattress Pad is that it is overfilled, giving a fluffy, pillowy surface that supports your alignment while still letting you sink into the soft comfort of its structure. From what I can tell, the materials are high quality, and the box stitching and mitered borders keep the incredibly thick filling from moving around and lumping up.
Depending on the amount of fill you choose, the thickness of the Pinzon microplush mattress pad is different. The manufacturer recommends a fill level of 50 or higher, which will be thicker than average, bringing the mattress pad to nearly 1-1/2 inches thick. This keeps you surrounded by a cloud of comfort and warmth. If you sleep comfortably in cooler temperatures, you might want to try a lower fill level, which will make it about 1 inch thick.
In researching the structure of the mattress pad, I first wondered why they had used so many different materials. As it turns out, each has its benefits for your use.
The 100% polyester top is hypoallergenic to avoid any negative reactions.
The bottom is 100% olefin, which gives the mattress pad added strength, as well as colorfastness.
It is also resistant to stains, mildew, abrasion, and sunlight, making it a sturdy option in structure for long term use.
The filling is also hypoallergenic, a 100% polyester fiber that is soft and pliant but resilient enough to retain its shape and thickness for years.
The sides are 90% polyester and 10% spandex, adding the ability to stretch it around your mattress properly.
Besides using high quality, hypoallergenic materials, the manufacturer has put this product together with box stitching from end to end, and the border is mitered. All of this means that the super-thick filling doesn’t shift around inappropriately, and you don’t get a lumpy surface that negates the purpose of having such a plush sleep environment. The deep pockets also mean it can double as a mattress protector, which gives it extra value.
While this is machine washable, it’s suggested that you get it professionally dry cleaned or laundered. There are multiple reasons for this. First, it’s a very large object that won’t fit in small washers and requires a low water setting for most front loaders to avoid flooding. In addition, top loaders with agitators can easy tangle the material and damage it.
This mattress pad comes in a variety of sizes that fit most beds, including a depth of 18 inches. That means you can put it on just about any mattress, regardless of how thick it is. If you have an XL full mattress, it might be a little short, but the full-size Pinzon mattress pad will still work for you. Available sizes include twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king.
The Pinzon overfilled ultra-soft microplush mattress pad is great for those who are ordering it to try and reduce night pain because it’s lightweight. It’s doubtful you’ll struggle to get it set up on the bed with a weight of just over eight pounds. It’s easy to put on the bed, as well, with little hassle and time involved. It’s ready to use right out of the package.
The warranty is one of the downsides of the product. While the user reviews seem to rave about this mattress pad, and some owners have posted glowing reviews after a year of use, the manufacturer only offers a 30-day full warranty. While this makes me a bit skeptical of the integrity of the product, I haven’t found any complaints yet.
While people looking for a cooler sleep environment may not benefit from it, the Pinzon overfilled ultra-soft microplush mattress pad is an excellent choice for those who want to be warmer and want to tuck into a thicker, softer surface at night. Being comfortable while also supported well enough to keep your spine aligned will help you get a more restful, revitalizing sleep and avoid the aches and pains of the morning.
