About Encasement Cover for Topper: Some of the top questions our dorm expert staff gets asked are: Do I need a dorm bedding topper encasement? Do your Twin XL Toppers come with encasements? Where do I put the Twin XL College Bedding Topper? Let's address these great questions!
1. No, you do not need an encasement cover for your Topper, unless you live in the wacky state of California. Why? Well, we aren't lawyers or politicians, but somewhere, somehow, someone in California made a law stating bed toppers made of foam needed to be encased. Strange right? We don't get the law we just pass it on! For everyone besides California you can purchase our toppers without the encasement (see #2 for why it's not essential).
2. No, our dorm bedding toppers do not come with encasements. If you like the idea of an encasement we offer a cheap and useful option, but by no means do you need it (unless you're a California resident). By offering our Twin XL Dorm Bedding Toppers without the encasement we can keep your dorm bedding costs even lower! We give you, the customer the ability to decide what is necessary and what is not. If you like the idea of the Twin XL Topper being concealed from elements such as spilled drinks, dirt, dust, etc, then it is a cheap insurance policy on keeping your Dorm Bedding Topper protected. On the other hand you may get that protection simply from your Twin XL fitted sheet or mattress pad (see #3), so the decision does come down to your budget and your personal dorm bedding needs.
3. Most students place their dorm bedding topper on their Twin XL mattress and then 'lock it' into place with a mattress pad or just a fitted sheet. By setting your college bedding up this way you prevent the Twin XL Foam Topper from shifting around. The mattress pad and/or fitted sheet forms your Twin XL Memory Foam Topper to the bed to create an in place comfort for all your much needed college sleep!
