Benefits of a Mattress Topper

You've seen them around, you wonder whether they're an appropriate fix for your old, sagging mattress, but what do you really know about mattress toppers? We're here to break down all the benefits of mattress toppers, including our memory foam mattress topper.

What is a mattress topper?

In short, a mattress topper is a thinner, lighter weight style of mattress designed to rest on top of your existing mattress. Usually made from foam or memory foam, a mattress topper can help you get a more comfortable night's sleep without the need for an entirely different mattress.

When should I get a mattress topper?

Mattress toppers can be useful if you want a softer surface to sleep on – perhaps you find your mattress too firm – or as a temporary fix for an older mattress that has started to sag and become uncomfortable through wear and tear.

Unfortunately, mattress toppers are not a long term solution to a sagging mattress. If your mattress is sagging, consider upgrading to a new mattress entirely, although a high quality topper can be used to extend the life of your mattress slightly. 

A memory foam mattress topper can also minimise motion transfer on a spring mattress by up to 50%. The extra cushioning you can enjoy from a memory foam mattress topper can make for a more comfortable, undisturbed sleep. 

Benefits of a mattress topper

Aside from softening your mattress or extending the life of your mattress, a good quality mattress topper can provide several other benefits. If you sleep hot at night, switching to memory foam mattress topper with air circulation can help regulate your body temperature at night and assist with a better night's sleep. When made from natural materials, you practice a higher level of sleep hygiene and give yourself the best chance of a healthy sleep. Allergy sufferers should avoid latex mattress toppers, and opt for hypoallergenic alternatives like the Ecosa charcoal-infused memory foam mattress topper. 

Designed to provide additional comfort on all kinds of mattresses, the Ecosa mattress topper can help you get a good night's sleep without the need for a new mattress. 

That said, a mattress topper should not replace the use of a good mattress. Most sleeping positions benefit from a fresh, well-maintained moderately firm mattress that supports you at all pressure points. 

If you think you'd benefit from an entirely new mattress, the Ecosa mattress is crafted from gel memory foam for a temperature-regulated sleep with zero motion transfer and premium comfort all night long.
