Cheap Memory Foam Mattress Toppers: A Helpful Guide

Looking for a mattress topper that doesn’t break the bank? It’s perfectly possible to find a cheap memory foam mattress topper that doesn’t compromise on quality.

A mattress topper can offer an additional layer of comfort and protect your mattress from dust and stains. Here, we explain the benefits of using a mattress topper and help you decide which one is right for you.

So, without further ado, here’s our guide to cheap memory foam mattress toppers;


What is a mattress topper?

A mattress topper provides an extra layer of protection and cushioning when placed over your mattress. There are lots of different types of toppers available, including memory foam, latex, wool and polyester blends. We’re here to help you choose the right one for you.


Types of mattress toppers

Here are some of the different types of mattress toppers on the market;

Memory foam

A memory foam mattress topper moulds itself to your body shape for the ultimate in targeted comfort and support. Memory foam is a durable option and has hypoallergenic properties.

Egg Crate Foam

If you’re looking for a quick fix, this lightweight foam is a cheaper option. However, it won’t last as long as memory foam and doesn’t provide the same level of support needed for a perfect night’s sleep.

Feather filled

Feather filled toppers are super soft and well insulated. However, they work best as a winter topper as you might feel too hot during the summer months.


Toppers made with synthetic fibres are great for allergy sufferers and are easy to care for. Do your research before buying this type of topper as the quality can differ from brand to brand.


If you want to go natural, wool is a good option. A wool topper is durable and soft, however it can feel heavy.


Cotton toppers are easy to clean and breathable but won’t last as long as other toppers.


Do I need a mattress topper?

If your existing mattress is a bit too firm or not quite ready to be replaced, a mattress topper could be just what you need. However, if your mattress is dipped, damaged or over 15 years old we recommend buying a new mattress for a better night’s sleep.


The benefits of using a mattress topper

There are many benefits to using a topper over your current mattress;

    • Comfort: A mattress topper provides added comfort and support, particularly helpful if you suffer from sensitive joints
    • Protection: A mattress topper acts as a protective layer over your mattress, guarding against stains or perspiration marks. It also stops bacteria from your skin and dust mites reaching your mattress to keep it fresher for longer
    • Eliminates sagging: The extra layer a topper provides minimizes sagging or body indentation in your mattress over time
    • Saves money: The added protection a topper brings means your mattress will last longer, so you won’t have to replace it as often

All of these benefits mean your mattress will last longer, stay cleaner and retain support, saving you money in the long-term.


How often to replace a memory foam mattress topper?

Memory foam is a durable material which is designed to spring back to its original shape after use. This means you won’t need to replace your topper until around 8-10 years after purchase.


How thick should a memory foam topper be?

The depth or thickness of your memory foam topper depends on the state of your mattress, your build and sleeping preferences. If you prefer a softer feel and additional support on pressure points, it’s best to go for a deeper foam. Similarly, if your mattress is particularly firm, you may want a thicker topper.


What is the best density for memory foam mattress toppers?

The more you weigh, the higher the density of memory foam you will need for maximum support. Those suffering from joint pain or back pain might also find a higher density foam more comfortable. Now it’s time to look at some toppers;
