We all want to find that perfect top layer to go on our mattress and have a good sleep. But first off, you need to know the difference between a topper and pad.
So basically, a king mattress topper is something that is used in addition to a pad which provides support and more comfort and warmth. The topper goes directly on top of the mattress. There are several types of pads as well.A pad on the other hand, also called a ‘protector’ is something that is placed between the mattress and the sheet. It fastens the former through something like an elastic band and protects it from unexpected spills and stains, as well as from getting worn and torn apart (which happens to most of these with time).
Now that we know the difference, the following is on the various types of toppers and mattresses found, knowing about these pads and such, you can find out which would be the perfect one for you.Latex toppers; this is actually very popular and while it has the ability to provide good you with extra support it helps the lifespan of your mattress increase as well. Another good thing about these toppers is that you need not go through heavy maintenance and they come in different thickness size. It is also said that these toppers last longer than other types of toppers and provides coolness throughout the night.
Foam mattress pad; this topper or pad, also known as memory foam, are generally made out of polyurethane and come in different levels of thickness sizes and densities. While these are less expensive than those made of foam, it helps you limit movement during sleep and provide support to your joints. This is actually very good for people who go through neck pains, back pains and things like arthritis. Another thing you may want to take note of is that many foam topper owners say that theirs get heated. Now this is because when you feel hot memory foam mattresses with gel infused gets to this problem and absorbs the heat from your body making your body cool.
Feather and down pads; these add an extra layer of softness to the bed and the toppers also have its way of keeping sleepers warm during the winter and cool during the summer. If you are a person with allergies, I suggest you do not buy this type as it is not resistant to dust, mites and other things.So if you are suffering from allergies to dust and mould, and you want a topper as feather and down, an excellent choice would be the wool mattress topper or quilt cover sets. It is resistant to dust and mould while it keeps to cool in the summer and hot in the winter.Well, hope this helps you find something good. Fingers crossed!
