The Naturally Nestled guide to choosing the best mattress topper thickness
Sleep can affect brain function, emotional well-being, physical health, and even safety. An uncomfortable bed can put a serious dent in your sleep quality. And poor sleep quality can negatively impact many areas of your life. It’s a vicious cycle. So how can you improve your sleep?
A 2-inch or 3-inch latex mattress topper is a great way to upgrade your bedding comfort so you can go back to getting good nights of sleep. Plus, purchasing a mattress topper costs much less than replacing an entire mattress. Despite the lower cost, a mattress topper can add serious coziness and support to your mattress. You should consider a few different factors when choosing the best topper to suit your needs.
First, pick the type of latex. Do you want a topper made of synthetic, blended, 100% natural, or certified organic latex?
Then, pick the firmness level of a latex mattress topper. Will a soft, medium, or firm topper meet your needs?
Beyond the latex type and firmness of a latex mattress topper, consider the mattress’s thickness (or depth). What’s the difference between a 2-inch thick latex mattress topper and a 3-inch thick topper (besides one inch)?
Here’s the scoop:
When to buy a thinner latex mattress topper
If you’re already pretty happy with your current mattress but you want to add a little extra to your setup, a 2-inch thick latex mattress topper is a great choice. The two inches substantially change the performance and feel of your mattress while maintaining its essence.
Some retailers offer 1-inch toppers as a bargain price option. However, one inch isn’t enough to make a difference in the feel or performance of the mattress.
The Naturally Nestled Nutshell: If you want a thinner topper, don’t go below two inches in depth. Think of a 2-inch latex mattress topper as an indulgent addition that adds comfort and support to your existing mattress.
When to buy a thicker latex mattress topper
A mattress topper with a 3-inch thickness transforms your mattress into a different bed. You won’t recognize what’s underneath. A 3-inch deep mattress topper offers even greater pressure relief and better support than a thinner topper.
A 3-inch latex mattress topper is a great choice if your mattress is older and has worn over time. A 3-inch topper can help transform any mattress—no matter how long you’ve owned it. A 3-inch latex mattress topper with a higher firmness level also makes a good base layer for a DIY mattress setup.
The Naturally Nestled Nutshell: Think of a 3-inch latex mattress topper as a transformative upgrade to your existing mattress.
Quality latex is a Must for Proper mattress topper material
