Although memory foam mattresses and memory foam mattress toppers both share a number of similarities, such as the fact that they are both available in various thicknesses and densities, they are not completely alike.
Here are some of the main differences between them;
- Toppers are designed to sit on top of your existing mattress and improve the quality of your sleeping surface, whilst mattresses are used on their own and work best on a strong, firm slatted or solid divan surface.
- Toppers cannot be used to revive old, worn out beds. So if it is obvious that your current mattress is of extremely poor quality, it is best to replace it with a new one because using a topper on a mattress with practically no support won’t change a thing.
- Toppers are usually constructed with a layer of memory foam only, unlike memory foam mattresses which make use of designs that incorporate other materials and features.
- Mattresses offer a complete memory foam package with all the unique benefits of the visco elastic material. Toppers on the other hand are not as supportive and will instead focus on improving your sleeping surface rather than transforming it.
- Toppers can be placed on all types of mattresses and are especially beneficial to ones that are firm as they will add a layer of cushioning.
If you’re looking to make your bed that extra bit more comfortable and support to your sleep look no further than a memory foam mattress topper. They are available in both a Superior and Eggbox design, both of which will help to improve your sleeping conditions. If however you feel your current mattress is inadequate, then you may rather want to replace it with a memory foam mattress instead.
