What is the difference between mattress pads and mattress toppers?

Pads or Toppers?

The terms “mattress pad” and “mattress topper” are sometimes used interchangably. A topper is usually just another layer of padding to add cushioning or softness to a mattress. Usually, a mattress pad refers to a thinner layer of quilting to protect a mattress or add some other feature, as with heated mattress pads or electric mattress pads.
