I have loved the difference that a memory foam mattress topper has made to my sleep! I tried it because I was getting aches and pains – apparently from just sleeping – and thought the bed might be too hard. But I didn’t want the expense of a complete mattress change. Toppers were a cheaper option.
I discovered that memory foam toppers come in various sizes (from single to king), different thickness, (typically 3cm, 5cm and 7cm), and different levels of softness. They are also readily available second hand (on places like ebay and gumtree).
The smaller and lighter you are the less the thickness matters (because at say 50Kg you wont notice much difference with toppers deeper than 5cm) although the softness of the memory foam does make a difference depending whether you need something really squishy, or a little firmer.
I know everyone is SO different when it comes to sleep and what is best but I have certainly found that the topper makes a huge difference to my comfort!
