Do Memory Foam Mattress Toppers Really Work?
As someone who has slept on a memory foam mattress topper for several years before owning my PerfectSense mattress, I can confidently say, “Yes!”
Maybe you aren’t quite ready to make the transition from a traditional coil spring mattress, but want to add some of the comfort-factor of memory foam.
Or perhaps you’re moving your old mattress into your spare room and want to provide your guests with a taste of the comfort you are sleeping on.
Memory foam mattress topper pads are great at making an overly firm mattress more comfortable. If your mattress is still in decent shape, but firmer than your ideal, a memory foam mattress topper pad improves the comfort quality of your bed.
It can also reduce the discomfort of your body’s natural pressure points, such as your neck, spine, hips, and shoulders.
Can a memory foam topper help an old mattress?
If your mattress is just a few years old and structurally sound, but too firm for your ideal comfort level, a topper provides an extra measure of comfort at less cost than buying a new mattress and foundation.
A latex foam topper is naturally firmer than memory foam and can help a mattress that is a little bit too soft, feel firmer.
What are the benefits of a memory foam mattress topper?
A mattress topper softens your sleeping surface and allows you to have a more restful sleep.
Memory foam toppers contour to cushion the sleeper's body from head to toe. The additional cushioning relieves the body’s pressure points including your head, hips, and shoulders. It reduces pain and discomfort during all of the night’s sleep cycles.
It’s also an ideal way to enhance the comfort of a spare bed in your guest room, or even works well to enhance the comfort of an air mattress in a tent (provided, of course, that the tent is dry and relatively cool).
How often should I replace my memory foam topper?
To ensure that you're getting the very most out of your memory foam mattress topper, you should replace it every year.
If your topper is a deep design or isn't used every night, it will last a little longer and you'll only need to think about replacing it every couple of years.
Do mattress toppers really help to improve sleep quality and comfort?
Mattress toppers are significantly thicker than most mattress pads.
A topper provides only reasonable protection from stains or water damage for your mattress. Mattress pads are excellent at safeguarding your mattress from water spills, leaks, or other fluids.
Mattress protectors safeguard your bedding from pet dander, dust mites, and other allergens. They don’t add additional comfort to your mattress, however, due to their thin profile.
Mattress pads provide affordable protection and a marginal amount of added comfort. A mattress topper noticeably enhances your mattress' comfort level, yet at a slightly higher price point. Provided you have deep enough sheets, you might use the two products simultaneously.
Will a mattress topper help a low-quality mattress?
If your mattress is just a few years old and structurally sound, but too firm for your ideal comfort level, a topper can add the cushion you need.
A memory foam topper, specifically a latex foam topper, is naturally firmer than memory foam and can help a mattress that is a little bit too soft, feel firmer.
How do I choose a memory foam mattress topper?
- Choose a memory foam mattress topper size that will fit your bed. Memory foam mattress toppers are sold in twin, full, queen, king, and California king sizes.
- A two-inch mattress topper is generally an excellent thickness for firm mattresses.
- Don’t forget to select a cover for your memory foam mattress topper to ensure it lasts as long as possible.
- Try and select a mattress topper that has cooling foam and a breathable cover made up of natural materials like bamboo. Traditional foam can otherwise retain heat which diminishes the sleep experience. Breathable natural fibres also enhance the longevity of the mattress topper.
