What To Look For When Purchasing a Mattress Topper

Posted on by Sleep Expert

Many things can contribute to a good and restful night's sleep, but one of the most important is choosing the correct mattress topper. At The Fine Bedding Company, we recognise that with so many options available, finding the proper bedding can be difficult. As a result, in this article, we'll go over what to look for in a good mattress topper, giving you a handy checklist to utilise the next time you're considering a bedroom makeover. We'll go over why mattress toppers are the ideal component to add to your bed to help promote and ensure a restful night's sleep. We'll see if toppers are a good level up from your bedroom, what they do, and which one is the best. And finally, we’re clearing the common question: what’s the difference between a mattress topper and mattress protector?  

Mattress Toppers or Mattress Protector?

It’s easy to see why it can get confusing when distinguishing between a mattress topper and mattress protector, both being on top of the mattress for comfort and protection. It can somewhat be a confusing question as to what’s the difference. The Fine Bedding Company offers both options, in an array of styles and materials so we’re here to explain! 

In a nutshell, a mattress protector protects and extends the life of your mattress by protecting it from things like sweat, spills, and allergens. To maintain the quality of your mattress it commonly consists of a thin layer on top of your mattress that can be easily removed and washed. A mattress topper, on the other hand, is made of a thicker, softer material such as memory foam or any other plump, breathable fabric. It's used to change the feel of your mattress instantaneously, improving comfort and transforming your mattress and sleep into a more comfortable and luxurious experience. 

Different Materials Of A Mattress Topper

It’s important to get the right material when seeking your perfect mattress topper. With so many options on offer including memory foam, latex, down feathers, cotton, polyester etc. As well as the need to match your material to their comfort level alongside your mattress, the need for sustainable design is also a big factor in influencing what options you’d maybe want to buy.
