Why you should use a mattress topper

Over the years there have been many questions asked about one of the most common sleeping accessories in the UK: The mattress topper. Do we really need one, could it benefit us and what type should we invest in?

Benefits of a mattress topper

There are many known benefits of mattress toppers if used in the correct way, having selected the correct topper for you. Here are some of the reasons why investing in a good quality topper could change the way you sleep…

  • Toppers can prolong the life of your mattress by alleviating direct contact with the mattress that often leads to sagging or unwanted indentations
  • Keeping your mattress clean is easier when using a mattress topper as it provides a barrier from the bacteria and perspiration that is released from the body during the night
  • Add comfort to your mattress with a suitable topper if your mattress is aging, unsupportive or stiff – ensure you find a mattress topper which balances the rigidity of a mattress, supporting your individual bodily needs
  • Improve your sleeping position and recover more efficiently after exercise or general activity throughout the day by using the right topper on a more worn out mattress

It’s important that a mattress topper is a well thought through investment and finding a topper that suits your mattress is vital to reap the many benefits!

Tempur mattress toppers can be placed on top of any mattress in decent condition to give you a better night’s sleep.

Different types of mattress topper and their qualities

  • Memory foam

Memory foam mattress toppers are great all-rounders, providing support for your natural sleeping posture while relieving pressure and creating that ‘floating’ feeling.

  • Cotton

Cotton mattress toppers provide a small amount of additional support and cushioning to a slightly aging or uncomfortable mattress. However, these toppers tend to have a shorter lifespan and can deteriorate with time.

  • Wool

Wool mattress toppers are rarer than most others and can be hard to come across. They’re best known for their soft and comfortable feel, as well as durability.

  • Feather

Feather mattress toppers are very soft but commonly have feathers that poke out of the fabric covering. Despite being comfortable to begin with, although not supportive, these toppers are known to deteriorate and flatten over time.

  • Latex

Latex mattress toppers are known for their firm quality which can offer good support. Latex is a durable material, although some find these toppers have a strange feel.
