Mattress Toppers, Which One To Chose?

Posted by Jim Lewis on

What is a mattress topper?

A mattress topper will add an additional comfort layer to a mattress. This will prolong its lifespan and increase the comfort. Many retailers recommend that all mattresses should beneficiate from a topper.

Whether it is a built in, when the mattress itself has the topper as part of its frame, or a removable one, when you, the client, can choose an extra layer of memory foam to place on top of the mattress of your choice.


Benefits of mattress toppers

Finding the ‘perfect mattress’ for you can be a daunting task. And nine times out of 10 you forget what it was like lying down on mattress #1 after you tried 6 or 7 mattresses and as many toppers…and the fact that there are hundreds of different toppers on the market, makes the job even more difficult.

A simple layer of memory foam (varying from 3cm to 7cm depending on retailers) could rejuvenate your current mattress. Its function is to act as a mattress enhancer that thanks to the memory foam core centre will easily distribute body weight more equally providing extra pressure relief and supreme comfort.

 A good quality topper should have elasticated corner straps to secure it to your mattress to prevent it from moving when you turn in your sleep and a zipped removable washable cover that will prevent dust mites allergens.



In a nutshell

A mattress topper will,

  • Deliver an additional relief layer
    Without this extra layer, the soft top of your mattress will lose its original density. And since mattresses with a soft top are mainly one sided mattresses, that means, you can’t turn them over. A mattress topper will give you the extra choice.
  • It extends the mattress lifespan
    Having the extra layer between your body, and your mattress will prevent dust mites allergens. Mattress toppers should have a removable cover that can be wash with your bedding. It also prevents the mattress from moulding due to body perspiration. the topper will still absorb perspiration, but its easier to wash or replace it for a new topper than to replace your mattress.
  • Extra comfort
    We recommend choosing toppers made of the same material as the mattress. To keep consistency with your comfort. If you have a memory foam mattress, buy a memory foam.
  • A 2cm layer is a huge difference
    Although it might not seem viable, sometimes all you need is 2cm of memory foam topper to make your mattress feel amazing.
