If you find that your bed is a bit too stiff for your taste these days, you may want to consider a mattress topper. It’s a much more economical choice as opposed to buying a new mattress. I often encourage readers who have only slept on inner springs and are mulling a memory foam mattress to get a feel for a memory foam mattress with a memory foam topper. The biggest lament I hear about transitioning from innerspring to foam is the loss of bounce. Getting a memory foam topper for your existing innerspring give you a taste of what to expect.
The second most asked question about transitioning from inner spring to memory foam is do they sleep hot? The answer to that question is it really comes down to the construction and layering of the foam and most importantly what type of foam is used. If you buy a mattress or topper with cooling gel, it will dramatically help with temperature regulation.
If you’re looking for a mattress topper that will give you the right amount of support and cushioning as well as keep you cool, check out the Isolus mattress topper from Malouf. This 2.5″ mattress topper is infused with a cooling gel that will help regulate your temperature throughout the night.
This mattress topper Utilizes a pin-core design which means that the gel memory foam is ventilated to increase air flow and regulate sleeping temperature.The memory foam quickly contours to your body to cradle you just right. Anything thicker than this would most likely mean you need to get a new mattress.
Here’s the Malouf mattress topper on my latex bed.
It is encased in a soft bamboo cover that is removable and washable. Bamboo is another textile that will keep you cool and is popping up in many new bedding products.
Below is a picture of the back of the mattress topper. There are tiny studs that will grip the mattress so it won’t shift or slide around at night. The Isolus did a great job of staying in place.
A queen size Isolus mattress topper costs $349.00. This may seem like a lot but it is a very high quality mattress topper and is less than half the cost of a new mattress. If your mattress is still giving you proper support but you find that it is too hard, I would have you strongly consider a topper over a new mattress.
Malouf was started among a couple in an apartment that had a passion for finding the best quality bedding products and making them accessible to everyone. The brand has since then exploded in to an international company. Their commitment to quality remains the same and it shows through this mattress topper. Get it here.
