Is it time to invest in a mattress topper?

6 October, 2023 / words by Melissa Holdbrook-Akposoe

Sleep plays a such huge role in our overall well-being; it affects our physical and mental health as well as just overall happiness – and it aids in not biting off someone’s head off when they ask early morning questions (not me though, I don’t talk before 10am). The one thing that people disregard the most when i comes to sleep is the quality of the mattress you sleep on.

Now, mattresses are hella pricey, and you’re only meant to change them what, every 10 years? So considering that changing the whole thing may seem like a stretch, the best thing to do is to find out how you can improve the quality of your mattress without  changing it completely, and that’s where a mattress topper comes in.

Essentially, a mattress topper serves as an additional layer of cushioning which enhances the comfort of your sleep and support of your mattress. So if your mattress is too firm or too soft, a topper can help you customize the feel to suit whatever you prefer. It’s also so good at supporting the longevity of your mattress since introducing one creates a protective layer between you and your mattress, so the daily wear and tear is less evasive.

Here are a few mattress toppers that will literally change your life from it’s first day of use.
To me, this is the G.O.A.T of all mattress toppers. It’s luxurious, plush and feels like you’re sleeping on a massive pillow. This is the one I have on all the beds in my house and everyone always gushes about it when they stay round.
