Best Bed Toppers: 14 Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress Topper


Finding it difficult to sleep on your existing mattress but not ready to replace it yet?

We’ve gathered together the wide array of benefits that come hand in hand with the best bed toppers around to help you achieve that elusive perfect night’s sleep.

You might be surprised what a difference a quality memory foam mattress topper could make on your sleep. From health benefits to breathability, let’s take a closer look at what’s on offer...

1. Comfortable and Supportive Memory Foam

If your mattress is a little too firm or uncomfortable, a luxurious layer of memory foam is ideal. Memory foam moulds to every curve of your body, cradling you throughout the night and ensuring a restful and relaxing sleep. By easing pressure points such as hips and shoulders, you can say goodbye to poky springs and the aches and pains that come with it.

2. Incredible Health Benefits

Sleeping on memory foam benefits your health, mind and body in so many ways:

  • Full body support as the foam moulds to your curves
  • Well-aligned spine and supported lumbar region
  • Healthy blood circulation
  • Reduced swelling and joint pain
  • Pressure-relief on hips, shoulders, knees and ankles
  • Can provide relief for back pain sufferers

3. Allergy Relief

Another great thing about memory foam is it is hypoallergenic and therefore ideal for allergy sufferers. The dense structure of the foam helps to prevent dust mites and moisture from entering, providing relief from late-night allergy symptoms.

A quick note- you will only benefit from the full effect if you opt for a memory foam mattress too, as spring mattresses and mattresses made from natural materials can collect extra dust and mould over the years.

4. Cheaper Than a New Mattress

Buying a mattress topper is a great investment! Toppers are undeniably a cost-effective way to spruce up your existing mattress. Just be mindful that you are definitely purchasing a quality product and don’t get too carried away with low prices. If you think a price seems too good to be true, it probably is!

We make every topper in our Yorkshire factory using quality memory foam in a range of densities to suit your budget – and every single one comes with a 12-month guarantee.

Just bear in mind that some mattresses are past saving. If your mattress is over 10 years old and extremely lumpy and uncomfortable, it’s probably worth investing in a new one.

5. Suitable for Use With Most Mattresses

Many people ask us: “can I put a mattress topper on my memory foam mattress?”. And the answer is yes!

As long as your mattress is in fairly good condition, you’re absolutely fine to use a memory foam mattress topper as a top layer. However, if your mattress is looking worse for wear with dips, sags or exposed filling, then a mattress topper cannot solve the problem. A new mattress is your ticket to a good night’s sleep.

Luckily that doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. As a Yorkshire manufacturer, we’re proud to be able to offer you factory-direct prices for quality memory foam products.

6. Durable and Long Lasting 

A quality memory foam mattress topper can last a good few years if looked after properly and can extend the lifespan of the mattress it’s sitting on top of too.

The key to finding yourself a durable memory foam mattress topper is to consider the density of memory foam used within it. As a rule of thumb, the higher the density, the longer the memory foam will last. We produce memory foam mattress toppers using a medium density 45kg, high density 60kg and superior density of 75kg foam.

7. Variety of Choices

Just like a memory foam mattress, mattress toppers come in a variety of depths and feels.

  • The deeper the mattress topper, the softer it will feel - 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm etc.
  • The higher the density of the memory foam, the more supportive it will feel: 45kg, 60kg, 75kg etc.

So, if you’re looking for ultimate softness and support, a 10cm mattress pad with 75kg foam is unrivalled!

8. Breathable and Fresh

Traditionally, memory foam could make you feel quite warm during the night. But thanks to innovative new foam and fabric technology, that’s a problem of the past.

4G Aircool Memory Foam Technology

The temperature regulated 4G Aircool Memory Foam Mattress Toppers release a cooling sensation when pressure is applied. The open-cell structure of the foam allows for increased airflow, helping to disperse body heat and keep you feeling fresh all night long.

For example, this Aircool mattress topper comes with superior, open-cell foam infused with cooling technology and a year warranty. Alternatively, the Zen Kooltop mattress topper offers super high-density foam combined with Coolmax fabric.

Coolmax Cotton Covers

The Coolmax covers on our mattress toppers are removable and machine washable at 30 degrees to help you maintain that perfect fresh feeling. Coolmax technology wicks away excess heat and moisture for a cool night’s sleep.

9. Absorbs Movement

If your sleeping partner tosses and turns all night long, it can have a negative impact on your sleep. That’s where a memory foam mattress topper comes in. Memory foam absorbs excess movement, minimising the disturbance of fidgety sleepers. Even if you sleep on springs, mattress overlay foam can help.

10. Suit All Sleeping Positions

Whether you’re a side sleeper, front sleeper or starfish- we’re confident you will be able to find a mattress topper to suit your needs. Side sleepers will benefit from a softer topper to cushion joints, while front sleepers should pump for a more supportive design to minimise curvature of the spine.

11. Easy to Care For

Another handy thing about memory foam is that it’s easy to care for. Memory foam toppers don’t require flipping, all you need to do is rotate it from head to foot and give it a quick vacuum every few months to make sure it lasts the distance.

12. Back Pain Relief

Thanks to its pressure-relieving properties, memory foam can be a lifesaver for those with back problems. A memory foam bed topper can provide the support and comfort you need to sleep through the night pain-free.

If you really struggle with back and joint pain, we recommend opting for an orthopaedic memory foam mattress to enjoy the full benefits of what this innovative material can do for you.

13. Made to Measure Mattress Toppers

We produce memory foam mattress toppers in all standard sizes – but we can produce made-to-measure toppers on request. This is perfect for adding some additional comfort to caravans, motor homes, yachts, horseboxes and other non-standard sleeping spaces! Just get in touch with our customer service team to find out more.

14. Compact Delivery

We compress and roll our mattress toppers ready for delivery, so when it arrives on your doorstep it’s easy for you to move it upstairs. Then just take the wrapping off, leave it to expand for an hour or two and then slot it straight underneath your bottom sheet. Simple!

Why Have a Mattress Topper?

With so many advantages, it’s no wonder memory foam mattress toppers are so popular. Memory foam’s pressure-relieving, supportive and durable properties make it a great ingredient to add to your bedtime mix without spending a fortune.
