What to Look for In the Best Memory Foam Toppers

What should you look for in the best memory foam toppers? There are several things. First of all, does it match up with what you are looking for? I hope you know what you're looking for. If you do know what you're looking for you can skip my introduction, and head on down to the fourth paragraph. Okay?

Okay. A memory foam topper has a few things that you will need to be aware of. The first is density. This affects how firm the bed will end up being. Many people purchase toppers because they don't like how soft or firm their bed is. A topper can be a very easy way of fixing this. You'll find that the higher the density, the longer it will take for you to sink into it. Most pads are about two pounds in density - however you should get a higher one if you prefer a firmer bed.

You will also need to be aware of the thickness. It's quite an easy decision most of the time - most toppers are about two inches. A thinner topper enables most of your sheets to still fit it, however if you prefer more of an 'extreme' memory foam experience a thicker topper is the top option. Three inches thick will usually eliminate the sensation of 'using up' the full thickness of the topper. A thicker topper does mean that fitted sheets might end up a bit of a stretch. If your sheets are important to you then you might need to get a thinner topper - or just get some new sheets. Most designs for beds are 'breathable'. As memory foam is rather dense it's important you get one that 'breathes'. The material that goes along with a bed is very important here. Open cell is usually the terminology that companies use to describe these types of foam toppers.

So, you know what you want? You know if you want a firm or a soft one... and how important fitted sheets are? What should you look for in the best memory foam toppers... using other people's opinions here is important. Check out Amazon to see what people think of the topper you'd like to get. Anything less then a four out of five star rating should be avoided. Check to see where the topper is made. Many are made in the USA - is this important to you? What's it made of? The new generation of memory foam toppers have at least some of their materials from natural sources. Again - is this important to you?

How easy is it to clean? Most will be spot clean only. Some come in a case or sleeve of some sort which is convenient if you prefer machine washing. What about hypo-allergenic? Again - is it important to you?

The best memory foam toppers will have a good rating on Amazon and have good reviews. They'll be easy to clean, have a good thickness and a good density FOR YOU. If you want a denser design then you need to look at those. But the best memory foam topper will do everything you want it to do. If buying online, you may like to visit a furniture shop to get a feel for the different designs. And remember - if you end up not liking something you buy, you can send it back.
