Foam mattress toppers are rapidly becoming a popular choice over full foam mattresses, even in the cases of memory foam mattresses. Mattress toppers are far cheaper than a full mattress of the same type which means that, as there are memory foam mattress toppers, you can get the full comfort that memory foam affords you without having to pay the price of a full memory foam mattress.
For some time now, memory foam mattresses have been widely accepted as being the most comfortable type of mattress that you could purchase but what many people do not realize is, they only have to buy a topper to get that comfort. You only have to read memory foam mattress topper reviews to see that those that have already bought just the toppers are receiving a full and confortable night’s sleep. Once you have decided to buy a memory foam mattress topper, you will then have to decide which one you would like. Although most people agree that once they sleep on any memory foam mattress or mattress topper, they no longer suffer from back aches and pains, some have issues with the temperature in which they sleep. As a memory foam mattress moulds itself to the body shape of the person that is laying on it, the body heat from that person may be retained in the moulded shape or, in other words, builds-up heat. Some people say that this is just an added advantage as it helps them to sleep on the colder nights of winter or any night if they live in colder areas however, those that may experience hot summers or have a hot climate all year round, do not want or need the extra heat. Certainly there is little point in buying a mattress that can afford you comfort of a good night’s sleep, if that same mattress will not let you get a good night’s sleep because of its heat build-up. There is a solution though. Aware of the problems that memory foam mattresses can cause a build-up of heat, many of the manufacturers also make memory foam mattresses that have had a gel combined with the foam during manufacture and this gel, helps to disperse and heat build-up in the mattress or mattress topper. Once you have determined whether or not you want a memory foam mattress with or without a gel, you only need then to decide what thickness of mattress topper you want.
Regardless of the thickness of your memory foam mattress topper and regardless of whether you decide on gel or no gel, as with the full memory foam mattresses, when you initially enwrap the mattress topper, you may experience an unpleasant smell but this is unfortunately necessary due to the chemicals used in the production of the topper. Although unpleasant and perhaps distasteful, the odour should only last for a few hours but, some people have said that if has lasted a couple of days. Either way it is perhaps best to open it at least a day before you actually sleep on it.
