Mattress toppers are designed to add an extra level of comfort cushioning support to your mattress, and in some cases adding extra support by moulding to the shape of the body. Mattress toppers come in several different types including memory foam, latex, natural fillings and synthetic varieties.
Toppers are also available in a range of sizes from single and double, through to king and super king size. Designed to snugly fit the bed, you should buy a mattress topper to that fits the size of your mattress.
They come in a variety of thicknesses and densities, but it’s worth remembering they are only as good as the base they’re placed on. If your mattress sags or is too old, it can diminish the topper’s ability to provide the proper support.
Natural-filled toppers incorporate a range of fillings from duck and goose feathers though to cottons and silks and will provide a luxurious soft feel. However, not all natural toppers will suit people with allergies.
As bed technology has developed so too has the range of mattress topping products. At the luxury end of the market, memory foam, gel and latex toppers provide body contouring support combined with breathable and hypoallergenic qualities. Designed to support the spine in a healthy alignment, these toppers will soften under your body to provide customised sleeping support.
