- Memory foam mattress toppers – anyone use one?
Looking at getting a new bed when I move house in 6 months time, but until then I need something to make the current mattress a bit more bearable.
Cue memory foam mattress toppers – has anyone bought one and can tell me what to look for? 2" at least, density? etc.
Currently looking at 2" memory foam toppers on Ebay (around £40-50)…Posted 7 years agoNaranjadaMember
The memory foam toppers are useless, as far as I can remember. 2" is just not enough (fnarr) to mask whatever your current mattress's problems are, the foam will just follow the contours of whatever it is on top of.
Seriously, don't waste your money.
Get a Tempur mattress if you can swallow the cost, they are brilliant!Posted 7 years agoStonerSubscriber
I have a tempur-fake. Superb bit of kit – would never go back to pocket sprung.
Its a full depth mattress and cost about £500 I think. Much less than Tempur.
I'm 6'4" with all the dodgy back issues that brings up and havent had a twinge since we got the mattress 5 years ago.
They are a little warmer, but thats hardly difficult to deal with.Posted 7 years agomattsccmMember
We have a topper. About 4". The missus reckons its brilliant and makes a complete difference to her sleep. I beg to differ as I hate the fact that they mould to your shape. I have tried a few and they all, cheap or dear, put you in a body shaped hole. I don't want my hps lower than my stomache, i want a dead flat bed. When you want to move around you have to roll up hill and they don't "fight" your weight. probably the point. Must admit that in the year since we had one my back which tended to ache, often doesn't but my sleep is crap. Best nights sleep are else where. Not sure what to say. Maybe if you are a sound sleeper like my missus they are fine. I'm tryin to persuade her to chop the thing in half and let me put a bit of plywood on my side.Posted 7 years agoTheFunkyMonkeyMember
I bought a cheap sprung memory foam matterers off an ebay seller last year. Was only about 160 quid.Posted 7 years ago
Was as good a the silent night i'd tried in the shop for about 2 weeks. After that it was just average. My advice, don't bother with cheap ones, it's a false economy.
I'll be getting the silent night one in another 6 months or so I think.CougarSubscriber
The other thing I'd add is, when buying a new one spend a while shopping around and don't be afraid to lie on the demo beds to try 'em out.
Obvious maybe, but people seem to overlook that it's somewhere you'll spend a third of your life, so it's worth spending a bit of time and money in getting it right.
IMO, etc etc.Posted 7 years agosharkbaitMember
We got one a couple of years ago from Costco (about £120) – not sure how thick it is but probably about 4".Posted 7 years ago
We like it, proper warm and makes the beed seem comfier, but as has already been said if the matress underneath is dead then a topper won't make much difference.
