A mattress is a big investment, and sometimes it’s just not the right time to buy one. That’s where a mattress topper comes in. Mattress toppers are an affordable option to refresh your mattress, or if you already love your mattress, toppers can add another level of that comfort you crave. Especially if you and your partner prefer a different mattress feel. With several inches of unassuming softness, this mattress upgrade is easy. But with so many options, finding a topper is not. To make it simple, we’ve put together a guide of everything you need to know on how to choose a mattress topper for your whole family.
Decide on a Thickness
Let’s start with the basics. Most mattress toppers range from two to four inches in thickness, so a good rule of thumb is the thinner the topper is the firmer the feel. A two-inch mattress topper will sleep firmer than a four-inch topper. If you’re looking for a plushier feel and more support opt for a thicker topper like a four-inch. This thicker version is best if you’re looking to revitalize your mattress.
A Brief Guide to Sleep Positions
1. Side Sleepers
Side sleepers benefit from a plushier mattress. Think the thicker the better, it’ll really help with any pressure points for sweet relief.
2. Stomach Sleepers
Sleeping on your stomach can cause spine misalignment and added stress to your neck and back. Opt for a thin mattress topper to encourage spine alignment.
3. Back Sleepers
Similar, to stomach sleepers, back sleepers need a thinner mattress topper. Look for a firmer feel for a better night’s sleep.
Types of Mattress Topper Materials
Sleep cooler with a gel-infused mattress topper. The innovative gel captures and distributes heat, so you can sleep more comfortably.
Embrace the calm, relaxing scent of a lavender mattress topper in your bedroom. The natural scent creates a soothing space to fall asleep in.
Made with moisture-regulating properties, bamboo charcoal-infused mattress toppers control odors to create a fresher and cleaner sleep.
Memory foam is great for spine alignment. The foam compresses and conforms to your body to relieve those pressure points.
Whether you’re a side, back, or stomach sleeper, there’s a mattress topper made for your entire family.
