Not to get confused with a mattress protector, a mattress topper is an extra layer of cushioning to put over your current mattress. The purpose of one is to make your bed comfier, and you can get different levels of comfort depending on what material you choose. There’s a variety of different materials used in mattress toppers, such as memory foam, latex, polyester blends and feathers. These materials all provide different attributes that suit a variety of people. For example, memory foam brings a comfortable and soft layer to your mattress, whereas a polyester blend topper would do the same but not to the same extent. Latex would certainly provide comfort like a memory foam topper but would be firmer. On the opposite end of the spectrum, feather mattress toppers are soft but aren’t as supportive as the rest described. Overall, there’s a topper for every kind of sleeper out there, and you can be sure to find one here that will enhance your mattress’ comfort.
