Does A Mattress Topper(s) Really Help? by Y4all: 11:22am On Jan 18
Sometimes, investing in a new mattress that suits our preference and lifestyle may just not be convenient. Most times, we seek an affordable yet effective solution to upgrade the comfort of our mattress and overall sleep quality. Thankfully,  mattress topper(s) is a quick yet durable solution. Interestingly, you don’t need to break the bank nor burden yourself or your budget to get one.

We’ve had customers question the value of a mattress topper, in fact some people think a mattress topper is just a bed cover that enhances the look of your mattress.  This is not surprising as most people are yet to explore and leverage on the advantages of a mattress topper.

Here’s a perfect scenario: A customer was about to purchase a new mattress because of the frequent shoulder and hip aches she experience. Also frustrated by the constant tossing and turning on bed in a bid to relieve pressure points which leaves her sleep deprived, she decided to invest in a new mattress although this was not financially convenient. Fortunately, our sales representative recommended the standard mattress topper that gives the ideal softness. This mattress topper upgraded the feel and standard of her old mattress and made it comfortable to sleep on and most remarkably on a low budget.

We get it, you really want to know if a mattress topper helps. Yes! A mattress topper(s) is valuable in a number of ways, let’s get to it:

Toppers enhance support and comfort

Imagine getting that ideal softness or firmness you desire. It only means better sleep and an improved wellbeing. A mattress topper would add extra cushioning and contouring to your body. You no longer have to wake up with aches and pains at pressure points because the ideal mattress topper would aid even distribution of your weight, spinal alignment and promote a healthy body posture.

Toppers prolong the lifespan of your mattress

Although a mattress topper doesn’t completely rule out the need to change your old mattress, it would prolong your mattress and give you extra time before you need to purchase a new mattress. Additionally, you can add extra comfort to your sleep experience with the right topper. Getting quality sleep should be your goal and going the extra miles, investing in a mattress topper doesn’t cost a fortune.

It keeps your mattress clean

Ideally, a mattress topper is placed on a mattress; this protects your mattress from dust, dirt and stains that can cause quick wear and tear. So, not only does a mattress topper provide support for your body, it also shields your mattress investment.

Its budget friendly

A topper helps you save more money by giving your mattress an upgraded feel.  Importantly, a mattress topper will relieve you of the stress and anxiety that comes from budgeting for a new mattress as a topper gives you extra time to invest in a new one while using the money saved on other important things.


Buying the wrong mattress topper is like adding salt to injury or petrol to fire as used in our local parlance to mean that you’ve made a bad situation worse.  So, it’s important to make the right choice of a mattress topper, the goal is to get the most comfortable mattress topper that enhances sleep and overall well being.  Here are factors to consider when making a choice of the right mattress topper.

Topper’s Thickness

There’s no one size fits-all topper, so you should consider the thickness of a topper before making a purchase.  An ideal topper should be at least 2inches; this can provide the needed support and comfort you desire. However, this depends on what your experience is. You can opt for a thicker topper.

Support/ Comfort

A mattress topper should change the feel of your mattress and provide an upgraded support for your body. If your mattress is too firm and causes aches and pains at pressure points, then you should get a mattress topper with a pillow-like softness, the Winco Foam Standard mattress topper is the best bet, to enhance the feel of your  and make you more comfortable. Sometimes, pains and aches can be a result of a too soft mattress, and then you will need a firm mattress topper such as the Winco Foam Orthopedic mattress topper to augment the comfort of your existing mattress rather than buy a new mattress. So, if it will not provide the needed support, then don’t invest.


Not all mattress toppers are washable; we recommend that you invest in a mattress topper that you can launder. This ensures you have a healthy sleep surface and reduces your vulnerability to allergies, rashes and other illnesses that can hamper your productivity.

Certified manufacturer/vendor

You do not want to be a victim of a substandard mattress topper. After all, your health is important to you. While there are quality toppers made by certified manufacturers and brands, there may also be fake toppers made with harmful chemical contents that can ruin your sleep and consequently your overall wellbeing.

It is absolutely easy to maintain a mattress topper. Here are simple ways to take care of your topper(s)

Regularly air dry your topper

Place a mattress protector on your mattress topper before putting your bed sheets, this will help protect your mattress topper as well as your mattress and also elongate their life span

You can spray detergent on your mattress if it does not have any stain, dirt or odor. Simply mix a mild detergent in a bowl of warm water, turn it into a spray bottle or any alternative, and then lightly spray the entire topper. Ensure you lightly spray, not soak the topper.

Remove stains immediately with detergent, sponge and water so as not permanently stick to the topper. You can also use baking soda to clean stains, mix a handful of baking soda in a bowl of small water, using a towel, rub the solution on the stain. After a period of 45minutes to 1hour, you can soak the solution back and air your topper.

Launder your mattress topper regularly and ensure it’s completely dry before you return to its position.

You can also check the manufacturers guide on how to take care of your mattress topper.


Get a mattress topper today if you desire luxurious comfort and improved sleep.  It is an affordable solution to constant pains or aches in pressure points, an easy way to get comfortable sleep,  increases the durability of your mattress and most importantly a strategy to save more money.

 In conclusion, it’s not about getting a topper,  but you must get the right mattress topper from a reliable brand.  Also, taking care of your mattress topper would help you preserve your investment.
