What’s the Deal with Mattress Toppers?

Do you ever feel like your mattress is too firm? If so you might’ve heard of mattress toppers as a solution! In this article, we’ll discuss what mattress toppers are and if they are a remedy you should consider for your mattress.

Mattress toppers are essentially a 1-3 inch layer of material, normally foam but other popular materials include cotton or latex, that can be set on top of a mattress designed for cushioning and support. Using a mattress topper can also protect the mattress itself from wear and tear. So if you feel that your mattress is too firm, using a mattress topper is definitely a more economic decision than buying a new mattress.

One important thing to note is that if you have an old mattress that's beginning to sag, a mattress topper is only a short remedy for the larger issue. Mattresses, generally speaking, are supposed to last 5-10 years. Longer than that and wear and tear will likely occur, where at that point it would be better to invest in another mattress rather than a topper, which would be a short term solution.
