Improve mattress comfort effectively
If your reason to buy a mattress topper is to improve your mattress comfort than you may consider this topper type because it’s very effective to improve comfort and feel a mattress
beware : some topper product called their topper as “memory foam” the truth is most of their topper made of regular foam.(ex: 1 inch memory foam and 2 inch regular foam) this type of topper usually have lower longevity.
Make sure you read the topper material details before you buy it to prevent you buy that type of that mattress topper
Few Reason to buy Topper
There are few reason why people buy it , one of these reason might be your reason to buy a it too.
Makes your old mattress became new
Mattress (click here how to choose one) will sagging soon or later and if you sleep on sagging mattress you will feel pain in morning (expecially back and neck pain). If you add mattress topper to your old sagging mattress it will give you a better comfort and feel.
Or should i say you can get a NEW mattress feeling just by adding topper in your old mattress ( life hack heh)
Improves mattress comfort or change it’s firmness feel
If you think topper can be used only by old mattress then you are completely wrong, mattress topper can be used by new mattress too. If you bought a new mattress but you feel that’s too firm you can add it to make it softer.
note: Mattress topper can longer your mattress age too.
Provide deffirent firmness on mattress side
If you and your sleep partner (husband or wife) like different softness of mattress (this happen a lot) but you doesn’t want to buy adjustable firmness bed or sleep on different mattress, you can add mattress topper on half of the bed (see bed types in this article) so your mattress now have different firmness level.
Few Reason NOT to buy Topper
A small of group people reported that their mattress topper are not in same sized with their mattress (ex: king size sometimes won’t same in your king mattress).
So make sure you read the size carefully, it will make your bed appearance bad if that happen.
It is not secret that this material have initial odor that sometimes makes you can’t stand in your room, luckily it won’t last long. All you can do just put your mattress in open room and leave it in few days.
It Moved !!!!
Some people reported that their mattress topper moved/slide (that can happened because it is not part of mattress)

Longevity you should expect
Do not expect your topper live will be same like your mattress. For this material expectation life will be 3-4 years (generally).
For this topper type the guarantee usually 2-5 years. But most people hard to claim their warranty. So do not expect too much from it
