Just as your taste in music, clothing, and food can change over time, so can your preferences when it comes to the comfort of a mattress. Since many mattresses last for 10-15 years, your comfort preferences can change in the years after you purchase a mattress. Perhaps you thought the mattress you purchased had the ideal level of firm comfort, but after a few months or years, you decide that it’s not delivering the level of comfort you need to make the most out of your rest. Perhaps you’ve discovered that it’s too hard and rigid for the way you sleep. Instead of spending a lot of money on a brand new mattress, spending far less on a mattress topper can most likely soften your mattress to a level of comfort that will allow you to get the deep, restful sleep your body needs.
Memory Foam and Latex Toppers
The most popular mattress toppers are made from memory foam and latex foam, and they can substantially change the feel of your mattress. Memory foam mattress toppers are a great choice for sleepers who enjoy body-hugging comfort and conforming support that memory foam is known for. Latex foam mattress toppers are ideal for sleepers who like the feeling of sleeping “on” a mattress, rather than “in” it. Latex foam is more responsive than memory foam, so it doesn’t produce the same sinking feeling that some sleepers dislike.
