Anyone who is having trouble sleeping at night should consider investing in something that will make his or her bed more comfortable. Mattress pads and toppers are just the ticket for people who need a better bed but do not wish to spend a fortune on a new mattress. This article will describe some of the modern market's top rated items.

The most popular mattress pads and toppers are made of a material called memory foam. This is an ultra soft, spongy cushion that conforms to the body's shape, enabling greater comfort. A benefit of memory foam is that it holds antibacterial properties. People who prefer soft mattresses are bound to love memory foam. However, there are still options for those who like a firmer place to sleep. Some firmer types of memory foam are far less conforming than the aforementioned type. Latex is a commonly chosen alternative.

Many people swear by the leading brand Tempur-Pedic. Although they are the first choice of many wealthy people across the globe, Tempur-Pedic's products are not solely reserved for the rich. Great deals can be found online when people decide to sell their lightly used mattress pads and toppers.

For people who are on a budget, there are many less expensive brands. For example, the brand Sleep Better carries just as many products as Tempur-Pedic. They may not be made with the same quality of materials, but they are comparable. A few other similar brands are as follows: Healthy Foundations, Canopy, Viscofresh, Beauty Rest, Sealy Posturpedic, and Sleep Warehouse.

Personally, I was having neck and back problems. I was having trouble even picking up my kids. We do OK financially, but can not really afford a $ 5000 new mattress, so I started researching mattress pads and toppers. I went ahead and bought a mattress pad and memory foam pillows. They have been a Godsend for me. It took me a little while to get used to it, but now I can not imagine going to sleep without them. I even take my pillows with me to hotels now.

I feel like I've been reborn, I have so much more energy now. I'm out in the yard playing with the kids, wrestling around. I do not need to go to the chiropractor and I am not taking near as many painkillers, which that alone makes it worthwhile. I went with the 4 “mattress topper with a medium firmness.
