You may be like many people before you, thinking of buying a memory foam mattress topper and if you are, you have probably made a wise decision. In all there are over 25,000 reviews of different mattress toppers online and many of those, especially the complimentary ones, are of memory foam mattress toppers. Altogether, it is believed that 92% of people that purchase memory foam mattress toppers are fully satisfied with their purchase and so are perhaps happy that they made the correct choice. What is good for one though, may not necessarily be good for another though, an example being a person that sleeps on their front, may be perfectly happy with their decision to buy a 2”thick mattress topper whilst that particular thickness, may be inadequate for a person that sleeps on their back or their side; a better choice for them would possibly be a 3”thick mattress topper. Similarly, a person that lives in a cold climate may be happy with a regular memory foam mattress topper whilst someone that lives in a warmer climate, may find that the build-up in heat that they can create, makes them uncomfortable at night; they would need a foam mattress topper that contained a gel to disperse the heat generated.
These are though, decisions that can be decided on by looking at different mattress topper reviews. Online reviews are perhaps one of the best ways to obtain true best memory foam mattress topper information, as they are usually written by those that are not paid by the manufacturers. As most reviews are written by independent sources, as well as always pointing out the good things about any mattresses or toppers, they will generally also point out any bad points and it perhaps these that you should take the most notice of when reading a review. For instance, many reviews related to memory foam mattress toppers, may point out the fact that they can create excess heat when being laid on. This is a valid point and is only addressed by buying a different mattress topper, one that has had a gel included during its manufacture. For this reason, it is probably only those that bought a mattress topper with no gel that brings it up in their review. Another point that is often mentioned is the somewhat unpleasant odour a buyer is faced with when opening the mattress for the first time. this is something that any buyer of a memory foam mattress topper may bring up as it is unavoidable in memory foam mattresses. In order to attain the quality of body moulding that these mattresses possess, chemicals must be added to the foam during manufacture and when the mattress or toppers are first opened, these chemical release a gas that has a distinct and discomforting odour. Unfortunately the manufacturers have not yet been able to find a solution to this problem but, although mentioning it in reviews, most customers do not really mind as the odour is a one-off experience which, in most cases, only lasts a couple of hours.
