The best mattress topper is not merely an added luxury. It can improve your health and your sleep. But that’s not all… a high-quality topper can save you money by allowing you to purchase a less-luxurious mattress.
Mattresses are priced according to how many layers they place on top of the inner core. These layers add cushioning and softness. This is why an “ultra plush” is usually more expensive than a “medium firm” — it has more padding layers to cushioning you against the hard feel of the innerspring structure.
These plush layers feel lovely when you’re testing the mattress in the store. But many people find that once they sleep on the bed for a number of years, sometimes even six months, these layers tend to compact and sink in. This causes physical discomfort, sometimes even pain from pressure points and misalignment.
