Mattress toppers have always been popular in Australia. They can significantly change how a mattress feels to sleep on, and they offer an economical solution for those with an old, uncomfortable mattress.
However, with so many products on the market, finding the best mattress topper (for your needs) is a certainly challenge.
What is a mattress topper?
A mattress topper is a seperate layer (usually of foam) that can be placed on top of a mattress. Mattress toppers are used for a variety of reasons, but the most common would be to improve the comfort and/or support of an existing mattress.
Mattress toppers can vary in depth, but most will sit between 4 cm and 8 cm in height. Generally speaking, the thicker the topper, the more softness it will add to your mattress. As an example, the Ecosa Topper (pictured above) is 5 cm thick.
What are mattress toppers made of?
As you would expect, mattress toppers vary in quality and thickness. This will influence the level of comfort and support that they offer.
When should I use a mattress topper?
As we alluded to earlier, a mattress topper can be useful in a number of different situations.
Possibly the most common application for a mattress topper, is use with an old (usually uncomfortable) mattress. This may provide an additional layer of comfort and support, and may extend the life of the mattress.
Even though a mattress topper may provide additional comfort or support to your current mattress, it won’t always compensate for a mattress that is performing poorly (e.g. too old, not suitable for your body shape). If this is the case, purchasing a new mattress is strongly recommended.
As well as adding some comfort to your mattress, a mattress topper can be a great temporary sleep option (e.g. to use on the floor), or a space saving option for kids sleepovers!
How do I choose a mattress topper?
There is a huge range of mattress toppers available on the market. They vary greatly in price, quality, and composition. Not surprisingly, making a final decision is not easy.

The Naptime Topper is one of the best mattress toppers that we have tested, and is remarkably well priced. It uses a combination of cool gel memory foam and a high density posture foam that creates a lovely, balanced feel. At 8cm deep, it is much thicker than most other toppers on the market.
The Ecosa Topper is one of the most comfortable mattress toppers on the market. It offers good value and is made from quality gel memory foam. This gives a soft, cloud-like feel which helps to absorb body weight softly. It also has the practicality of elastic straps and a removable cover.
The Zeek Whopper Topper is a lovely mattress topper that uses a premium bamboo fabric cover. This cover is removable and (hand) washable, and feels durable and breathable. This topper has a generous 7.5 cm height and offers oodles of pressure relief. It has a lovely, comfortable feel and a nice level of responsiveness during sleep movements.
The Peacelily Mattress Topper (Plush) is simply one of the best mattress toppers on the market. It is made from 100% premium latex and cotton which gives a lovely, ‘cloud-like’ feel. We would recommend it be used with the Peacelily Mattress, but it can used on pretty much any mattress to create a softer feel.
The Zeek Top Notch Topper is very comfortable and takes a worthy position in our best mattress toppers collection. It combines a quality bamboo fabric cover with gel memory foam, and it sits 5 cm high. A great value option from Zeek.
