Quick Summary

Molecule manufactures two mattress toppers. Both are three inches in height and made of layers of foam with a removable cover that is machine washable for easy care. The Molecule product lineup includes mattresses, mattress toppers, sheets, pillows, comforters, and pet beds. The U.S based company launched in 2018 aiming to provide sleepers with a restful and regenerating sleeping experience, especially for those with active lifestyles. The company is aligned with a team of professional athletes such as football players Russel Wilson and Tom Brady, and Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin.

Molecule products are designed by a team of engineers, sleep experts, and neuroscientists. A main focus of all the Molecule products is maintaining a cool night’s sleep. Understanding thermoregulation is a critical aspect of the sleep experience, Molecule designs their mattress toppers to promote airflow and breathability.

Both mattress toppers measure three inches in height and are constructed of memory foam, adding a body-confirming layer to mattresses.

  • The Triple Zone Mattress Topper has two layers of supportive memory foam. The bottom layer is two-inches thick and has three zones to better support sleepers. The center is denser and slightly firmer support to provide pressure point relief on shoulders, back, and hips. The head and foot area are a softer foam.
  • The Molecule AirTEC Mattress Topper has three layers of foam, excelling in temperature regulation even when the topper is compressed. Molecule designed open-cell foam to promote optimal air flow through this topper. The cover on this topper features cooling fibers to minimize heat absorption.

Molecule offers free shipping on their mattress toppers to all 50 states and offers a 30 night sleep trial for you to try the mattress topper out at home.

Both Molecule mattress toppers sleep fairly cool for memory foam with the AirTEC edging out the Triple Zone in this category. This topper will be ideal for those who sleep hot, however, its temperature regulation means those who sleep cooler won’t be uncomfortable on it either. Both show good durability and support with proper spinal alignment and relief of pressure point areas like shoulders and hips. Both rank fair for sex, being a fairly non-responsive or bouncy foam mattress topper. Both rank well for couples in motion isolation and noise. The motion or noise of one person moving on the topper isn’t likely to disrupt the other sleeper.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Molecule Topper?

Based on our customer feedback the Molecule mattress toppers have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different toppers, which are also influenced by the mattress beneath. Spinal support and comfort are the highest weighted factors when it comes to mattresses and mattress toppers.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

Our in-house testing showed almost unanimous positive responses to both Molecule mattress toppers in all weight categories. We found the Triple-Zone mattress topper to be especially suited to average and heavy weight sleepers, particularly those who sleep on their backs. We found lightweight sleepers in all positions to have a better experience on the AirTEC mattress topper, rather than the triple-zone. The AirTEC mattress was also rated very good for average and heavy weight side sleepers.

Molecule AirTEC Mattress Topper

Built with three layers of foam, the AirTEC is three inches thick with a breathable cover designed to remove heat from the mattress topper. A one-inch comfort layer is the same foam present in the company’s Molecule 2 mattress. This layer boasts considerable airflow, an unusual quality in memory foam especially when compressed. The company’s patented HexFlo material is one-inch thick and is an open cell design, again making this mattress topper considerably cooler than most memory foam. The bottom support layer is one inch of transitional polyfoam designed for support and spinal alignment.

Molecule Triple-Zone Mattress Topper

At three inches thick, this topper consists of two layers in an all-polyester removable cover. One inch of open cell memory foam assists with thermoregulation, leaving the sleeper at a comfortable temperature for the whole night. The second layer is two inches of zoned dynamic response. The polyfoam in the center under the body’s core is firmer, giving more support and pressure relief where needed. The area under the feet and under the head is softer for a more comfortable experience.

Firmness is rated on a scale of 1 to 10. For more information on how firmness is calculated, please visit our Mattress Firmness page.

Set-Up and Care Instructions

The covers on the Molecule mattress toppers unzip and are easy to remove. To launder, machine wash in cold water on a delicate cycle. Covers can be put in the dryer on a low setting and should be removed promptly. Spot cleaning is another option. A soft sponge or cloth with a diluted gentle soap and warm water is recommended.

The mattress topper itself should not be washed or dried. Gentle spot cleaning is recommended if needed.
