Quiet please, I’m sleeping – a memory foam mattress topper review
We all need a good night’s sleep, but we’ve all had times when it takes a while to doze off. What about those sleepless nights when you can’t find a comfortable position?
Perhaps your mattress sags, or it’s just too firm or too soft?
Those are the times for which a memory foam mattress topper is perfect. It could be the answer to a good night’s sleep.
This memory foam mattress topper review is for you!
But, this is what’s great about the memory foam mattress topper – it’s not just for rescuing a sleepless night. It’s perfect for prolonging the life of a mattress you’re already happy with. And you still get the added bonus of even more comfort and a good night’s sleep!
I don’t understand why the mattress topper is one of the least advertised bedding accessories when its sleep benefits are amazing.
The mattress topper’s a fraction of the price of a bed or a decent mattress.
We bought a memory foam mattress topper a while ago, and I was surprised by the difference it made to our sleep.
Getting into bed was a joy. It made me feel like I was “sinking” into the mattress, as though it was a pile of pillows.
The mattress topper’s memory foam shaped to my body, and I could have rested in bed all day.
It was so comfortable.
What is a mattress topper?
For years, mattress toppers were made from either egg-crate foam or feathers. These were unsupportive and unhygienic. Thankfully, most mattress toppers are now made from memory foam which is hypoallergenic, supportive and hygienic.
The memory foam mattress topper is a large piece of foam, available in various thicknesses, that fits the size of your bed.
Obviously, the greater the thickness, the more support and comfort it provides for a good night’s sleep.
The foam has a removable, washable cover which prevents it from slipping on your bed. Some covers have straps, whilst others are similar to a fitted sheet tucked under the mattress.
How to use the mattress topper
- place the mattress topper on to your mattress
- hold it in place with its cover or straps
- your usual bedding goes over the mattress topper – although be aware that if you choose a very thick mattress topper, you may need to buy larger fitted sheets to accommodate the extra size
Turn the mattress topper every so often so that it’s evenly compressed with your body weight. By doing so, it will help it to last longer and it will add to the comfort of your mattress.
The mattress topper revolutionises a good night’s sleep – it’s a well kept secret…
What are the benefits of you using a memory foam mattress topper?
Besides comfort, good value and a good night’s sleep, there’s actually a few other benefits, some of which aren’t so obvious. Did you know:
- non-allergen irritant – perspiration, dead skin and bacteria can irritate conditions such as asthma and eczema. The mattress topper prevents these from lying dormant in the mattress which means your skin’s less likely to be irritated
- protects the mattress – the mattress topper provides an extra layer of support to take your body weight, which means the pressure is more evenly placed on the mattress. There’s usually a removable cover which can be washed with the bed covers, and prevents the mattress from becoming discoloured. It’s also much easier to rotate or turn a mattress topper when required, than it is to turn or replace a sagging mattress
- lasts longer – the mattress topper ensures your mattress remains comfortable and in good condition for a longer period
- supports your body – provides added support to your body as it adjusts to your sleep position, and is dust mite resistant
Where can you buy a memory foam mattress topper?
We bought our memory foam mattress topper from Asda – it was the George Home Memory Foam 2.5cm mattress topper. Even though it’s not one of the thickest mattress toppers, it still made a lovely difference to our sleep, which is why I wrote this review.
There’s so many brands, styles and prices, that if you’re looking to buy the “perfect” mattress topper for you, it’s worth comparing quality and checking prices.
It’s also a good idea to see what Amazon are selling as they often undercut the shop prices.
