Picking the Best Mattress Topper

A down mattress topper is a small step up from an egg crate. An egg crate is just a layer of padding that goes under the sheets and adds cushioning. These toppers can be purchased in all different sizes and fit almost any bed. A down mattress topper adds warmth and softness to the bed, which is great for couples who like to snuggle.
Most mattress toppers are now made with memory elastic foam, which most people feel is much more comfortable. Thickness counts when choosing mattress toppers. Price also matters, there are many comfortable toppers that can be purchased at a reasonable price. Although most mattress toppers are either goose down or memory foam, many other types exist. Some have wool covers, providing the sleeper with a lot of warmth.
Others are made with polyester fill that doesn’t give much padding. Some toppers are in between a mattress topper and a cover. Both cover the mattress under the sheets. Some problems may arise with a thick mattress topper. Sometimes fitted sheets are not adequate. There are larger fitted sheets, however they are not easy to find and are somewhat expensive.
There are many disadvantages to mattress toppers. A large number of topper and pad owners find it difficult to get them to fit properly. They often slide out of place making it a hassle to have to fix them every night before bed. They are not always effective so for some it is just a waste of money.
Though there are many disadvantages there are much more advantages. Toppers are less expensive than buying a new mattress. It also allows a person to try out mattress materials before deciding to purchase a new mattress. Some come with different hardness and softness that can be placed on each side of the bed to better the sleep and comfort of each partner.
