Memory Foam Mattress Topper

The number of pounds per cubic feet, i.e. the density of your topper, will determine two things: softness/firmness and durability. The denser the memory foam topper the more durable it will be. There are, in fact memory foam toppers made at densities of five pounds and more. Tempur-Pedic´┐Ż comes to mind. Consequently these toppers are somewhat more durable than their less dense counterparts. However, the denser the memory foam topper the stiffer it will feel. In addition, the impressions made in the denser foam topper will be deeper and will take longer to change shape and/or return to neutral form. This can make the simple act of turning over in bed quite the chore.

It is always important to remember that comfort and sleep is subjective. What is comfortable to some is less comfortable to others. The most important consideration is what works for you. Yet, it never hurts to listen to the advice of others who have gone before. An air bed mattress, in addition to being far more expensive can not and does not support the body as well as a memory foam mattress or memory foam mattress topper. Why start your search for sound sleep by dropping $2,000? In the end a Novaform elite memory foam mattress topper may not be the perfect choice for you, but built around most people?s ?sweet-spot? it is not a bad place to start.
