How to Pick the Right Bed Topper for You

Bed toppers are not all alike, each topper material has its own advantages.

Latex

This can be natural latex or synthetic. The firm yet bouncy characteristic of latex offers good support to your joints while you sleep. 

  • Best for: Firmness, antimicrobial 
  • Avoid if: You’re allergic, or prefer to sleep on a softer surface

Memory Foam

Memory foam is soft yet provides excellent sleeping support. 

  • Best for: Comfort and support
  • Avoid if: You get hot easily

Feather

These are ultra-soft and airy, yet provide little or no support. 

  • Best for: Softness
  • Avoid if: You’re looking for sturdy support or if you’re allergic 

Polyester Blends

Made of synthetic fibers these are usually odorless and soft. It’s a great alternative to down-feather if you’re allergic.

  • Best for: Allergy-suffers
  • Avoid if: You’re looking for firm support
