How Adding a Mattress Topper Can Improve Quality of Sleep

Are you thinking about how to elevate your existing mattress to provide more sleeping comfort? Introducing mattress toppers. Whether you have been wondering if you should buy a mattress topper along with your new mattress or are simply unsure exactly what a mattress topper is and whether you really need to invest in one, Zinus has you covered with this blog. Learn everything there is to know about mattress toppers and how they can improve your quality of sleep.

What is a Mattress Topper?

A mattress topper is a thick layer of material designed to be used on top of a mattress to add a layer of soft comfort for a good night’s sleep. It is a removable, customisable extension to your mattress. Mattress toppers are available in several materials including latex and memory foam, which makes them versatile enough to fit most mattress styles and designs. It also plays a key role in providing medium support and protects your mattress from stains and sagging. 

Why Should You Use a Mattress Topper?

These are the 5 important benefits of investing in a good mattress topper for your mattress. 

1. Extra Comfort for Good Sleep

Most mattresses are designed to provide the right amount of support and comfort. However, sometimes, individual sleeping habits and health conditions might require a bit more customisation, which can be addressed by a good-quality mattress topper. A mattress topper is designed to enhance the comfort and feel of a mattress with its additional layer of foam, latex, cotton, wool or other materials. If the surface of your existing mattress is too firm, you can add a soft, pillowy mattress topper for that cosy feel required for a good night's sleep. 

2. Health Benefits

Comfortable and undisturbed sleep is important for good health. A good mattress, as well as a mattress topper, is essential to enhance the quality of your sleep. When both bedding items complement each other perfectly, you get a health-boosting, cosy bed that helps you sleep soundly. 

A memory foam mattress topper snugly fits the curves of your body, enveloping you. It also relieves pressure on your joints and back, giving you relief from back pain for a deeply relaxing sleep.  Alternatively, if you are a hot sleeper, options like a cooling gel mattress topper can help you regulate your body temperature and keep you cool all night.

3. Helps You to Keep Your Mattress Clean

Our body releases sweat and sheds dead skin cells as we sleep, which can result in a stained, unclean mattress. Besides simply relying on your sheets to keep your mattress in a pristine condition, a mattress topper is a great way to keep your mattress clean by acting as a barrier against dirt, dust, spills and stains. 

4. Increases the Lifespan of Your Mattress

A mattress topper acts as a protective layer on your mattress, preventing direct contact with your body with the mattress when you sleep. It will help the mattress surface retain its appearance and feel, while also preventing the mattress from sagging with its thick layer. If your mattress has started to show signs of sag or wear and tear, you can extend the use of the mattress with a thick and sturdy mattress topper.

5. Easy to Clean

Unlike a mattress, you can remove a mattress topper for regular cleaning and washing. This means that you can keep the surface that you are in direct contact with clean and hygienic. A clean mattress will also help you to steer clear of allergies resulting from dust or bacteria.

Types of Mattress Toppers

Mattress toppers are made from several materials including memory foam, latex foam, and even wool. The optimal choice would entirely depend on your personal preferences and health requirements. Some of these include:

  1. Memory Foam: These types of mattress toppers are usually made from viscoelastic polyurethane foam to provide structural support to your body. It is durable and can provide you with long-lasting comfort. However, if you are a hot sleeper, we would recommend you choose a different material that allows for greater breathability and thus a cooler feel. 
  1. Synthetic Latex Foam: Synthetic latex foam mattress toppers offer the best of both worlds: the comfortable support of memory foam and the cooling properties of latex foam. As mentioned above, this material can be a good fit for those wishing to establish a cooler sleeping environment. 
  1. Cooling Gel Memory Foam: When a Thermo regulating cooling gel is incorporated into the mattress topper, it can help regulate body temperatures. The memory foam structure hugs your body in a cosy embrace so that you can wake up pain-free and relaxed
