MEMORY FOAM TOPPER

All it is is a block of memory foam, two inches thick, from the size of your current mattress. It sits on top of the mattress you already have, it comes with a fitted sheet made out of 100% tencel fabric.

To determine what thickness you should buy, here are some guidelines:
For the 2 inch memory foam topper:
It will have a medium pressure relieving effect on your body while you sleep
Therefore, in terms of comfort, it will be average However, if you buy a high quality topper, and you have a small build, this may be all you need
As you might expect, this is the least expensive option

Are memory foam toppers good for your back?

One question people frequently ask are:

Does a memory foam topper help with back pain?

If you have a bad back, you have to be careful when buying a bed topper to make sure it has good support.
For support, the term you need to be aware of when shopping is memory foam density.

If you have a bad back, your best bet is to get a bed topper.

Are memory foam toppers any good?

You may read comments on websites that have memory foam mattress topper reviews about how a topper can turn any mattress into a luxury bed. This is simply nonsense. That’s like saying you can put a fake fur jacket on a pig and turn it into a purebred dog.
See, in order for the topper to work, you have to have a good mattress already that the topper can sit on top of.

If your mattress is getting into that seven to ten-year-old range, a topper may not help you get a better night’s sleep. You may need to be thinking about replacing the entire mattress.

Just take a good honest look at the mattress you have. If it’s four years old and still decent, you might be able to keep that mattress going for a few more years if you put a topper on it.
However, if your mattress is already worn out, and sagging in the middle, the foam topper will sag too. It’s a waste of money because the topper will conform to the underlying foundation.

What situations do memory foam toppers work best for?

It’s probably safe to say you’re looking into a topper because you want memory foam… and you also want to save money.
Perhaps you just can’t pony up the substantial money (often up into the thousands) needed to buy a memory foam mattress.
Fair enough. Just keep in mind that along with what I said above about back pain, a topper is best for the following:

  • You have a good bed already, but it’s too firm and you want to soften it up with a topper.
  • You need an extra bed you can simply throw on the floor for guests. As long as the guests are young…perhaps grand kids or friends of your own children…a good topper works great. (For us middle age and older folks, it’s tough to get up off that ground!)
  • Get one to dress up a dorm room mattress with memory foam comfort.
  • You can take it with you on the road when traveling and put it on top of the hotel or motel mattress.

How long do memory foam toppers last?

If you buy a cheap memory foam mattress topper, you’ll be lucky to get a couple years out of it. Poor quality memory foam will quickly lose its support. In fact, you might find the foam is not expanding and remains indented.

On the other hand, top quality mattress toppers may last up to about ten years if you take good care of them, although ten years is a stretch. It all depends on how often the topper is used. If you get five years out of your topper and use it all the time, consider it a good investment.
