If you are considering buying a memory foam mattress but have been a little put off by the cost, as an alternative you could consider a memory foam mattress topper. These mattress toppers can afford you the same level of comfort a full memory foam mattress can, for a fraction of the cost. According to mattress topper 2015 reviews, the satisfaction rate of those that have already bought mattress toppers is very high and so they are perhaps a consideration that you may make.
Mattress toppers sit on top of your current mattress and improve its comfort but although the toppers may just sit atop another mattress, there are still different thicknesses of toppers which you can choose from. In the case of memory foam mattress toppers though, as well as the thickness you want, you may also want to decide what type you want as there are two specific types. Most memory foam mattresses are of a regular type and many people are very happy with them but, there are some people that complain that they create too much of a build-up in heat when you lay on them. As a memory foam mattress moulds to the shape of your body to allow you the best possible night’s sleep, the indentation in the mattress can cause heat to build up around you and to some, this is discomforting. Perhaps it are those that prefer to sleep warm at night or live in the colder climates that have no problem with these mattresses or mattress toppers but, those that already sleep hot or perhaps live in warmer climates consider this heat build-up as uncomfortable. Anyway, as some people have mentioned it, the manufacturers came up with an alternative. For those that would prefer not to have a heat build-up, there are now memory foam mattresses that have had a gel added to the foam during manufacture. The foam in the mattresses helps remove any build –up of heat by allowing the heat to be dispersed throughout the mattress, keeping the sleeper cooler.
Obviously as with the mattresses, there are several different brands from which you can choose your memory foam topper but basically, unless you have a particular name that you know you can trust, they are all very similar but, that is what reviews are for so look at one before making your final decision.
Whether you finally decide to buy a memory foam mattress, a memory foam mattress topper, regardless of which brand it may be, you may well find that the mattress gives off an unpleasant odour when you first open it. There is nothing wrong it is just a reaction from the chemicals used whilst manufacturing the foam. Although some people have reported that the odour has lasted for as long as two days, most people find that it has gone in just a matter of a few hours. Although perhaps an annoyance and a slight discomfort, most people think the discomfort is well worth it for the sound sleep it affords afterwards.
