What kind of Mattress Toppers are there?
So you know what a mattress topper is and what it can do for you, I’m sure you want to know what kind you can get for yourself. Memory foam mattress toppers function the same as the mattresses of the same name do, a thin layer of soft fabric that moulds to your body, providing extra comfort and stability. Egg crate mattress toppers go by many names, so 'egg crate' is a good catch-all for a lot of different brands. They are made of a bumpy nodular foam surface that looks sort of like an egg box, often in a padded cover. They can be easily rolled up or stacked, so while they're not quite as luxurious as memory foam, they're a lot more flexible, and usually cheaper too. Wool or fleece mattress toppers use natural materials that reduce the risk of allergies, and they're surprisingly soft – less itchy than you might expect. However, they are very much on the expensive side.
