One of the most popular bed accessories for comfort conscious consumers is a memory foam mattress topper. Sometimes it can be so disappointing when we pay a lot of money for a brand new bed only to find that it's not quite as comfortable as we expected. Memory foam mattress toppers are a perfect answer to this problem because they provide you with a soft, comfortable and highly supportive surface for your mattress.

There's another reason I recommend these toppers, though. If you have any doubts whether a memory foam mattress might be right for you, a mattress topper is a way of trying out the technology on a small scale without committing yourself to the full price.

The Thickness and Weight of Memory Foam Mattress Toppers

Memory foam mattress toppers are made from exactly the same materials as the full size memory foam mattresses. The difference is in the thickness. You can get 2", 3", and 4" memory foam mattress toppers. You will see that memory foam is generally described as having a weight. The higher the weight, the denser the memory foam. The denser it is, the better "memory" it has. This means that if you are very heavy, you should probably buy a denser form of memory foam as it will offer better support for you.

While you're thinking of buying memory foam mattress toppers, you might like to think about buying some memory foam pillows to go with it. These are specially shaped to be supremely comfortable whether you're lying on your back, your side or even on your front. Memory foam pillows are especially useful to people who suffer from debilitating neck pain. Their shape offers optimum support yet sufficient softness for the best possible neck pain solution.
