The 4 Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper Can Save You Money!
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
If your old mattress set is a looking a bit worn and is not as comfortable as it used to be, but has retained its shape fairly well, then you might want to consider a 4 inch memory foam mattress topper rather than replacing the whole thing.
Before deciding whether to opt for one of these items you need to take a long, hard look at your existing mattress, though. If it’s badly sagging and has lost its shape completely then a mattress topper will not resurrect its career – it’s heading for the garbage tip I’m afraid.
However, in the case of an innerspring mattress where the coils are still in pretty good condition and all you want to do is add a level of comfort to the top, a topper can save a lot of money. These toppers are made by most of the leading mattress manufacturers nowadays and are available at a fraction of the cost of a full mattress set. You can simply choose one of the better brands, make sure you get the right size, order online with a reputable retailer and get one delivered to your door.
Memory foam is known in the market for its extra comfort and the way it reacts to both body shape and body heat to provide a very comfortable upper layer to a mattress. The main body of most memory foam mattress sets will not be made from memory foam – only the upper layers – so providing your mattress still has a reasonably shaped body then you will not be missing out on much.
Be careful not to cut corners too much with the 4 inch memory foam mattress topper. You are already saving money from not having to buy a full mattress, so there’s no sense in opting for a 3 inch topper to make extra savings, or opting for a cheaper brand.
The golden rule is to buy from an established maker, as they will use the best materials that will provide the comfort and durability that you are expecting; cheaper manufacturers will use poorer quality memory foam, perhaps of lower density, and in smaller amounts too.
Some makers will provide packages that include covers for your topper. You can check online and you will see that you can get a Serta Queen 4 inch memory foam topper for around $250 or less. This is just a guideline – shop around makes and sizes with different retailers but, again, our advice is to choose a leading brand.
