When was the last time you woke up feeling fresh and well rested? I have seen all the advertisements showing people bounding out of bed in the morning, a big smile on their face and birds are chirping in the background. Does this seem like your typical morning? No, it is not mine either. Especially when I spent a lot of money on a mattress that did nothing but give me backaches every time I got out of bed.
The simpler solution is to get myself a memory foam mattress pad. The time had come and gone for a new mattress pad so I figured I would check out one that had been getting rave reviews. The memory foam mattress pad has been recommended for helping increase circulation. It also has been touted as conforming to the shape of your body so it can distribute weight evenly. I figured this must be the answer to why these people were leaping from bed every morning with unlimited energy.
Maybe my weight needed to be distributed evenly and my circulation was not up to par. This may be why I was not the most cheerful person in the morning. Off to the store I went. Looking at the densities and thickness, I was somewhat lost.
Asking for assistance on these foreign terms when it comes to mattress pads, I was advised that 2 inch thickness is plenty for the full benefits of the memory foam mattress. The salesman recommended either 2 or 3 inches, but not 5 inches. With this amount of thickness, he said the person tends to sink in quite deep.
The density depends on the weight of the person using the mattress pad. The typical density is 3 lbs. If you purchase the full 5 lb. density, the indention you make in the mattress take longer to recover when you roll over or change positions. So, armed with this information, I chose a 3 lb. density and 2 inch thickness.
Assured that if I did not like this memory foam mattress pad, there was a return available I was off to try my new mattress pad. I wanted to be the one hearing birds chirping and have limitless energy after my wonderful night’s sleep. Naturally I was a bit skeptical and wondered if I was purchasing a mattress pad that would swallow me up the instant I crawled onto it. (The 5 inch pad was still stuck in my head.)
Timidly crawling into bed that night, I was amazed at the feeling as soon as I lay down. It actually felt good. The memory foam mattress pad did not sink and swallow me. Movement allowed the mattress pad to recover nicely. I drifted off with the thoughts of sleeping on a cloud in my mind.
The next morning, I have to admit, I did not bound out of bed. Actually I could have stayed longer; it felt so good. I do think I heard a bird singing, though. For the first time in a long time, I felt rested. I did not have backaches or sleeping arms or hands as I had in the past. Improved circulation must be true.
The only disadvantage I did notice was the slight smell to the mattress topper, but this soon went away. Oh yes, one more disadvantage. I cannot get the kids out of my bed because they say it feels so comfortable. Now I have to buy memory foam mattress toppers for the rest of the family.
How a Memory Foam Mattress Pad Topper Can Improve Your Sleep
If your bed suddenly starts feeling as if there are parts of it that are out to get you, the answer may be a memory foam mattress pad topper. These are quite relaxing and can change your old uncomfortable mattress into a nice comfy spot to relax.
Revive Your Old Mattress
Is your mattress an older mattress? If so, there are still a few more years left in it. All you have to do is put a memory foam mattress pad on it and off you go in to dreamland. This topper is so comfortable that it will feel as if you are sleeping on a new mattress.
King size beds are especially good for these. Unless you purchase a really high quality mattress for your bed, most of the ones that come standard are not that comfortable. They are often thinner than other mattresses and you can feel the difference in firmness.
You may be surprised that the mattress you have been sleeping on feels almost like a new one after the memory foam mattress pad topper is added. Your mattress may be causing you to wake up several times a night. You may wake up in the morning feeling worse than when you went to bed.
When you are sleeping on a mattress that is not comfortable, your whole body is out of alignment. Your spine is not supported and this can lead to back pain. Not sleeping at all is one of the disadvantages of a mattress that is not comfortable. Are you getting up several times at night and finding it difficult to get comfortable enough to go back to sleep? Nine times out of ten this is because of the mattress on which you are sleeping.
What to Look for in a Memory Foam Mattress Pad Topper
There are a few things you will want to consider when you start to shop for a best memory foam mattress topper. The thickness of the topper is going to make a difference in how comfortably you sleep. The topper should be made of a good material, such as visco-elastic.
The density of the mattress is another consideration. The best product has a density of 5 to 6 lbs. The measurement of the density of the mattress topper is the weight in a cubic foot. The layers are another aspect of the topper. The memory foam on the top layer should be about three and a half inches. When you have the ideal amount of memory foam, this will ensure that you have a good night’s sleep.
Another thing you will want to remember to look for is the warranty. This will allow you to certain solutions should the topper be defective. The replacement of the topper will depend upon what type of warranty you find. The best way to find one that will be a good value is to see what other people are saying about the different types.
This is the best advertisement available. If someone is pleased with the mattress topper they have purchased, they will say so. The same is true if they are not pleased. Read a few reviews of the different types available and see which ones are being rated the best.
