This post is going to be a quick one, but useful to those of you that are looking to sleep good tonight. I fell in love with memory foam toppers after I ordered my first one.
At the time I didn’t know that there was a preparation process you needed to do before using them. I learned the hard way, so I wanted to share a few things with my readers.
I’m going to cover what to look for when you purchase a mattress topper and what a mattress topper really is. There are several sizes in thickness to consider, so we will look at those too. Please leave your comments and questions below.
These toppers are for mattresses that already have decent padding already or a built-in pillow top. A good memory foam mattress topper should be at least 2 inches, which is recommended. If your mattress is a firm or worn one, then the recommended thickness of 3 to 4 inches will provide the appropriate level of comfort for you.
Poor quality memory foam toppers will quickly lose their support. In fact, the foam may not expand and will remain indented or flat. On the other hand, the top quality mattress toppers could last up to ten years if you take care of them. Although ten years is a huge stretch compared to 5 to 7 years. I guess it all depends on how often the mattress topper is used.
Now when your talking about memory foam mattresses they can last anywhere from eight to ten years. Typically, a memory foam mattress will last as long as other types of mattress.
Memory Foam Mattress Toppers
Most mattress toppers are shipped to you rolled up like a sleeping bag. Now, please be aware that after unwrapping and unrolling it, any rolled mattress topper will take between 4-8 hours to expand and air out. In this time you should see the topper at about 90% of its full size.
I personally recommend to leave it out an extra 4-6 hours to reach its maximum size. So, if you put all the hours together you get around 14 total hours. I do advise that you don’t sleep or sit on it during this time either. This will ensure the mattress topper has time to fully expand to its full correct size.
Take your pick! I talked a little about mattress toppers and, I have giving out some helpful information to guide you to the right toppers to help with sleeping more comfortably.
Go all the way!
Make sure you get the memory foam mattress you want and need. This is an item that you can afford to buy, because of the lifetime of the product. Remember, you can use them from five to eight years. This is almost as good of an investment as a new car!
In order to get good sleep you need to have good bedding. So, if you agree with that statement please leave me your comments below. So, if you have any questions or comments also, just leave them below. Until next time,
