Are Mattress Toppers Any Good?

The best type of mattress topper depends all on the consumer, it’s about
how the material makes your skin feel, the overall feel of the mattress
with the topper on, how comfortable it feels and if it helps you have a
good night’s sleep. So whether mattress toppers are any good depends
on you and your experiences with different types of mattress toppers.

Types of mattress toppers

Memory foam mattress topper

Memory foam is a flexible material that moulds to the shape of your body
it gives the most support out of all mattress toppers, and it helps with
body pains. However, it is important to remember that it can be
expensive and it can feel hot.

Gel mattress toppers

Gel toppers help regulate body temperature through the night and it is
comfortable to sleep on. maintenance is the key to making gel toppers
last a long time almost up to 5 years. However, they are very expensive
and might not be everyone’s favourite material.

Latex mattress toppers

Latex is a high-quality material and can be more durable than other
materials. Although latex toppers are durable they can still have issues
such as sagging and tares. Therefore it is important to keep a close eye
on latex materials. Although they are comfortable and soft they are very
high maintenance.

Feathered mattress topper

Feathered mattress toppers are soft and comfortable, they won’t feel hot
and it is light. However, it can be quite high maintenance as you would
need to fluff it a lot, maybe even every day considering how much the
feathers have moved.

Wool mattress topper

Wool mattress toppers are the most natural they keep you cool in the
summer and warm in the winter, so in my opinion, it is the best type of
mattress topper. It is quite firm and helps support the body. it is heavy so
it won’t move around at the night allowing you to have a better quality of
sleep.

Advantages of mattress toppers

Mattress toppers are made to change the feel of a mattress it is an
added layer that allows comfort and they can last up to 3-5 years, They
are also there to protect your original mattress and help extend the life of
the original mattress.

Mattress toppers are also pocket friendly as they don’t cost as much as
buying another whole mattress that you may like at the start and then
change your mind.

Mattress toppers are also interchangeable so if you buy one that you
thought you would like but you changed your mind then you can just buy
a different topper and it won’t be a hassle as it is lightweight, easy to
remove and it can come in various sizes meaning it can fit any sized
mattress.

How to clean mattress toppers

Cleaning mattress toppers is a simple process you should check the
labels and instructions but most of the time it is okay to put your
mattress topper in the washing machine and let it air dry. And you can
always go over it with a vacuum to make sure there is no dust lying
around.

Warning: not all mattress toppers are machine washable so please be
careful and read the label.
