If you want to experience the comfort of a Memory Foam Mattress but can’t quite afford one, Memory Foam Mattress Toppers are a great choice. Otherwise known as a Memory Foam Mattress Pad or Pillow Top Mattress Pad, for a fraction of the cost you’ll be able to enjoy all the comfort of Memory Foam without the expense having to change to a Foam Mattress.
Benefits of Memory Foam
The main advantage of Memory Foam, or Visco Elastic Foam, is that the material shapes itself around your body, giving your body a high level of support which is important for avoiding back pain. The foam will mold to the natural curvature of your spine, so that spending long periods of time in bed should not cause damage to your body. However, it is not only the spine that enjoys increased support, but the rest of your joints as well. For this reason, Memory Foam Beds are a good choice for those with arthiritis or other common body aches and pains.
In addition, Visco Elastic Foam offers a supreme level of comfort and can commonly be seen advertised as the ultimate sleep experience. Shaping itself to the body’s natural contours reduces the lack of motion caused by tossing and turning. This not only ensures that you get a comfortable night’s sleep, but also has the extra benefit of lessening the likelihood of disturbing your partner’s sleep.
As well as this, Visco Elastic Foam is the most durable of mattress materials. A Memory Foam topper will not flatten like a Mattress Topper made from wool or Feather and Down would. That is not to say that Memory Foam Mattress Toppers are immune to wear and tear, they will lose some elasticity with age and you may notice after a few years that your Mattress Topper might not return back to its original shape as quickly as it once did. That being said, Memory Foam will last longer than any other mattress material.
Finally, Memory Foam has the added advantage of being available in anti-bacterial and/or hypoallergenic varieties. If you suffer from allergies, a Memory Foam Mattress Topper may be your best choice.
Foam Mattress or Mattress Topper?
When deciding on the best mattress solution, you need to consider the mattress you already have.
A Memory Foam Mattress is best when your current one is failing. If your current mattress is very old, a Mattress Topper may not be able to fully hide the imperfections that are already there. Especially as time goes on, the chances are that your Mattress Topper will sag and eventually fail in the same places since it doesn’t have the necessary support.
A Memory Foam Mattress Topper will work best if your current mattress isn’t failing and you want to experience the benefits of Memory Foam. In this case a topper will work well for you.
No matter your decision, Memory Foam beds offer sleep advantages that no other bed can.
