How to Choose a Memory Foam Mattress Topper
If you are not ready to replace your mattress, you can still enjoy the benefits of memory foam. Mattress toppers are an ideal, and affordable, way to experience better sleep, more restful nights, fewer aches and pains, and better mornings. How do you choose the best topper?
First, consider the bed you have now. Is it overly firm? Is it too soft? The good news is that a memory foam mattress topper will work with either problem. But you do want to consider your needs so you can choose the best thickness. A topper that is 1.5 inches, for instance, will make your bed more comfortable. If your bed is too soft, a memory foam topper adds support that can help you get better, more comfortable sleep. If you just want a luxurious, soft experience, a 2 or 3 inch topper can help you achieve it. Think about whether you want support or comfort.
When you have an idea of why you want a topper, you can determine which will be the best for you. One feature to look for is a convoluted surface. This means that there are air grooves integrated into the surface of the topper. This allows air to flow, helping your body regulate your temperature.
Another feature that you want is high-quality visco-elastic foam. This foam conforms to your unique spinal alignment and pressure points. When you get up, the topper “recovers” quickly to its original shape. This prevents the topper from creating a “you” shaped mold.
One more tip: ensure you are getting the best mattress topper by looking for a guarantee or warrantee. Not only foam is capable of delivering comfort and support. A guarantee indicates the manufacturer stands behind the quality of its product.
