Mattress toppers are made from various materials but it seems like memory foam is the most popular one right now. That shouldn’t surprise you because it is an extraordinary material to sleep on. It was invented in the 1970s and became widely available in 1990s. So, what are the benefits of sleeping on a memory foam mattress topper?
First of all, it responds to the shape of your body and will form around you as soon as you lay down. It will give you the right amount of support where needed. So, if you have been experiencing any sort of muscular or joint pain, memory foam toppers are for you.
Secondly, if your partner moves a lot during the night and the vibration wakes you up, there is no need to worry about it when sleeping on memory foam. It does not transfer the noise and the movement on the other side of the bed is unnoticeable. Therefore, you will be able to stay asleep for an entire night.
Thirdly, memory foam is very durable and once you invest in a topper or a mattress, it will last for years. The very fact that the manufacturers will usually give you three to five-year warranty says a lot about the quality of this product.
And finally, you will be able to pick and choose the right density and thickness of your memory foam topper. They come in different sizes which is great. The thickness ranges from 1 inch to 4 inches. So, if you need more support for your lower back, you can find the right topper that will help you out with that. Additionally, toppers are lighter than mattresses and much more convenient. You will be able to unpack the topper and place it on the bed without any help from a professional (usually!).
