What is a mattress topper?
Mattress toppers provide an extra layer of comfort to your mattress.
Is it the same thing as a mattress protector? Absolutely not!
A mattress protector, as the name suggests, protects the mattress from spills and stains. A mattress topper, on the contrary, improves the comfort offered by your mattress. Also, mattress protectors are cheaper than mattress toppers. A mattress topper’s price depends on its thickness, comfort, and the quality of the material.
Why is a mattress topper a good investment?
For several reasons, a mattress topper is a great investment for your bedroom.
One, you can enjoy the feel and comfort of a brand new mattress without spending a fortune on it. Most people who decide to buy a mattress topper want to enhance the firmness and coziness of their old mattress which has lost its quality but isn’t old enough to be replaced.
Two, a mattress topper is the ultimate way to improve comfort, especially if you invest in a memory foam mattress topper (more on this later).
Not just comfort, but also support is a crucial factor. If your mattress has lost the level of firmness it once offered you, then you need not buy a new mattress altogether; just top your old one with a mattress topper.
Also, in case of the sleeper becoming pregnant, their body might need more support while sleeping than before. In such situations, the mattress topper can be a savior.
Three, if you share your bed with a partner, then you both might enjoy two different levels of support and firmness. In this case too, a mattress topper can be your solution. The one who wants greater firmness can have a memory foam topper on their side of the bed.
What are memory foam mattress toppers?
There are different types of mattress toppers. You have a cotton mattress topper, wool mattress topper, latex mattress topper, and memory foam mattress topper.
The reason why one should go for memory foam mattress toppers is because of the level of comfort these offer.
When your traditional mattress begins to sag at the corners or develops lumps and creates pressure points, the sleeping experience can become quite a pain. To ensure that your mattress remains the good investment it was supposed to be, get yourself a memory foam mattress.
Why are memory foam mattress toppers the best?
Like a memory foam mattress, a memory foam mattress topper has the quality of contouring. This allows it to adapt to the sleeper’s body seamlessly. As a result, no pressure points are created. The sleeper does not experience pain in the neck, shoulders, and hips when he or she wakes up in the morning.
The other quality that makes the memory foam topper such a winner is its ability to maintain the natural alignment of the sleeper’s spine. When we sleep on ordinary mattresses or mattress toppers, our spine is not given the extra attention and care that it deserves. This is totally altered by the memory foam mattress’s ability to ensure that the spine of the sleeper is not bent in an unnatural way during the night. This, in turn, makes the topper a suitable sleeping solution for anyone looking to improve their posture.
Again a memory foam mattress topper, like a memory foam mattress, might have a gel layer incorporated into its design. This layer with its cooling technology allows the mattress topper to offer temperature neutrality. What it essentially means is that, during sleep, the topper will absorb the body temperature of the sleeper and circulate it through the material instead of trapping it. As a consequence, the sleeper sleeps cool and comfortable throughout the night.
Also, a memory foam mattress topper distributes the bodyweight of the sleeper uniformly. This prevents the formation of blood clots and/or any kind of restless feeling in the sleeper’s body.
When buying a mattress topper, be sure that it comes with a hypoallergenic cover. This is of particular interest to those who have sensitive skin and/or people who catch a cold very easily. This will also help maintain the hygiene level of the entire bedding.
