Description: First off, it should be mentioned that a mattress topper isn't really the ideal solution if you want a better sleep. If you really want to get the most out of memory foam, you should really consider getting an entire mattress. They're sturdy and built from the ground up for maximum effectiveness. Unfortunately, they're also quite expensive. For those of us that don't have a ton of money, a mattress topper is a decent alternative. There are really two key factors to consider when buying a mattress topper made out of memory foam. The first thing to look at is the thickness. Your standard everyday day mattress topper is about 2 inches thick. This is decent but there is definitely better products out there. A good memory foam topper should be at least 3 and probably closer to 4 inches thick. The thicker they are, the longer they'll last. If you only want six months out of your new topper, by all means, go with a cheapy! A word of warning though... There are actually super inexpensive 1 inch mattress pads available. Stay away from these bad boys... The other factor you want to look at before purchasing a mattress topper (or any memory foam product for that matter) is density. This is basically the weight of the material. Here's how it works. The higher the number, the longer the material retains it's "mouldability". With a 3 pound mattress, for example, it will probably only be a year before the material starts to take on the shapes that have been leaving impressions in it. If you go with a higher quality 5 pound mattress, on the other hand, you can expect the material to be stronger for longer. I'm Sold! Where Can I Buy One Of These? You can get them in a ton of places... Sears, Costco, and The Bay, for example, all carry an assortment of different toppers. You may also want to consider getting one online. Have a look at the some of selections available from Ebay and Amazon. Note the numbers next to the brand name... They refer to the thickness and density of the topper.
