When To Use A Topper and When Not To Use A Topper

Feb 19, 2013

Waking up with aches and pains, pressure points and body parts falling asleep. Sounds like you are sleeping on a very bad mattress. We call it "Bad Mattressitis". But just because you need a new mattress, it doesn't mean you run out and buy a new one. Some people will sleep on that bad mattress for years, just enduring the pain. 

Not all bad mattresses are bad because they wear out. Some are just simply the wrong mattress for your body type or situation. Sometimes, adding some extra padding in the form of a topper can be just what the Sleep Doctor ordered. And sometimes a topper will not help anyone but the person who sold it to you. When do you need a topper? Here are some helpful tips:

  • My new mattress is too firm! If you recently bought a new mattress, and you are waking up with pain in your hips and shoulders, your arm is falling asleep or you are tossing and turning, simply adding some extra softness in the form of a good topper may do the trick. My consumers mistakenly confuse hardness for support. Firm may not be the right amount of comfort for your body type and tastes. You can get support from a medium to soft mattress as long as the materials are dense and the base conforms to your body. 
When NOT to get a topper

  • Your mattress is sagging and worn out. Putting a topper on a sagging or worn out mattress will just make it a softer saggy and worn out mattress. Many consumers believe adding the extra foam will fill in the valley or body impression, but all the topper does is follow the contour of the body impression, leaving you with a lack of proper support.

Buying a new mattress does not have to be painful, expensive or trying. At Nest Bedding, we take the pain out of the process by listening to you and your issues, suggesting the correct mattress for your situation and letting you decide when you are ready. Our mattresses are some of the most competitively priced in the USA and our service is second to none!
