Should you Buy a Memory Foam Mattress Topper?
Most owners of traditional spring mattresses will tell that after a few years, they’re ready for a new one. These mattresses have a tendency to wear down over time, delivering less and less support until, one day they’re just not comfortable anymore. The big lump under your hip and the spring poking your shoulder are sure signs that a replacement is needed. Of course, most of the mattress hype these days seems centered around memory foam mattresses, and there’s a good reason for that. These mattresses are incredibly comfortable, supportive, and will last a long time. Unfortunately, they come with a heftier price tag than the spring mattresses, and this can be a deal breaker for a lot of people. Luckily, there is an alternative that can give you all the benefits of memory foam without the price tag – memory foam mattress toppers.
Memory foam mattress toppers are exactly what they sound like. Instead of a full sized mattress, these toppers are few inches thick and fit directly over your existing mattress. They’re usually fairly lightweight and a lot less expensive, but they still come with all the good stuff that memory foam is known for. Foam mattress toppers will contour to your unique shape, evenly distributing your body weight and providing just the right amount of support. Of course your old mattress will be right underneath providing a measure of support as well, but you won’t even be able to feel it with a memory foam mattress topper.
If you are in the market for a new mattress but not quite ready to pay the higher prices for a memory foam mattress, consider a topper instead. This will give you the support and comfort you’re after, and you can save some money and still get a few more years out of your current mattress.
