Following these tips you will be able to find the best mattress topper and enjoy a great night’s sleep.
Find a Memory Foam Mattress Topper That Fits Your Bed
Memory foam toppers are sold in California king, king, queen, full, twin sizes. Since the toppers sit flush against the mattress, buying one that’s size is either too large or too small can make the bed feel and look uneven.
Select Memory Foam of the Right Density
Density here refers to the weight of 1 memory foam cubic foot, which is proportionate to the “memory” that the topper will have. High density memory foam toppers offer better support, conform to body weight better, are more durable, and respond to body temperature more efficiently than less dense models.
The vast majority of people find that memory foam mattress toppers with a density of 3 pounds perfectly suits their needs, although those suffering from joint and body aches and pain should consider choosing toppers with a density of 4 pounds or more.
Select a Thickness
Memory foam toppers are usually sold in different thicknesses (i.e., 1, 2, 3, and 4) inches. Memory foam with a thickness of 2 inches or less can make your current mattress feel more comfortable. It is a good thickness for those looking to extend the life of their current mattress. Toppers with a thickness greater than 2 inches will alter the feel and texture of your bed and are ideal for side sleepers.
Select a Cover for Your Topper
Memory foam is naturally hypoallergenic and resists dust mites along with other allergens. A cotton cover with a high thread count, however, will ensure that your mattress topper is protected from dust, dirt, and stains.
