Mattress Toppers

Postby Kacey » November 18th, 2017, 10:26 am

Does anyone have advice/recommendations for mattress Toppers? I've just ordered a new bed and want to get a mattress topper and a new duvet. I've been looking on Amazon as I have some credit to use, but not having bought one before and looking at the mixed reviews it seems a bit of minefield. I love the ones that Premier Inn uses - wish I'd thought to check the make last time I was in one.

I am interested in advice. I have a new mattress (well about four weeks old) and have been debating a topper. More so as on the 8th next month I am having surgery on my heel. I don’t want any stains on the mattress should my foot seep a little but neither do I want to sleep on anything plasticky. :? :hug:

There may be two issues here - a mattress protector for jrc and the question of what eactly Kacey needs - a mattress protector or a topper to add depth and comfort - perhaps memory foam.

As a mattress protector I can recommend this:

http://en.careshop.com.tr/100-cotton-hi ... 8&PID=4367

I slept on it for a few nights and it didn't feel at all plastick-y. It was quiet (no rustling), didn't make me sweat and didn't get any uncomfortable wrinkles in it. It's also got a deep fitted part, so fitted well over my very thick memory foam mattress.

I couldn't live without my matress topper. I wanted a down one but they are too expensive and rather impractical. I now have a silk/dacron one which zips into twothicknesses so each piece can be washed in a domestic machine. I bought mine at John Lewis. a couple of years ago.

I'm definitely meaning a mattress topper. We use Premier Inn a lot, they're very cheap if you book in advance, you know what you're getting and their beds are wonderful. In fact the bed we've ordered is one of their Hypnos beds. I just want the whole 'Premier Inn' experience (LOL) with a lovely mattress topper too. The bed should arrive 2nd week in December, so I'm planning at least one day over Xmas when I don't actually get out of it - except to fetch delicious provisions obviously.

I am puzzled as to why you would want a mattress topper on a new bed, as far as I'm concerned they are used to make an old mattress feel better. I had a feather topper on my old mattress, which was comfortable but quite warm. My newer mattress is memory foam over spring, so effectively has a built in topper.

I always use a mattress protector, not a waterproof one but a quilted cotton one, it wouldn't protect from a flood :rolleyes: but probably from a bit of wound seepage

Mine came from John Lewis, but this M&S one is similar, I love it, find it comfortable summer and winter

ETA I find the Premier toppers a bit warm, I think they are filled with polyester, a lot of hotels use them now, gives a good feeling of luxury, but can go through an industrial washer and dryer, which is reassuring (and probably makes the mattresses last longer). Id think feather and down might give a similar feel or perhaps wool?

Like Sue we have JL quilted cotton mattress protectors like the M&S one on our bed and the spare one ... they wash and dry well and are comfortable. We don't have toppers ... I've also found them a bit too warm.

I have a memory foam mattress topper and don't find this too warm at all, however, in view of my re-routed digestive plumbing, I have to be ready for any over-night accidents, so I do have a mattress protector on top of that 8-) ;) It is not at all plasticky but can't remember now how/where I got it :aww: :?

Every time I sit or raise myself up on my new mattress a spring boings, so am interested in mattress topper reviews here. Not nice having a spring poke you in the shoulder or face or ankle during the night. Hope you all have good sleeps tonight with no springage boingage!

Not sure why the springs would be going 'boing' if the mattress is new ? :?

It was bought on a strict budget so that might be why, unfortunately. :rolleyes:
