Which would be a better investment, a memory foam mattress or a memory foam topper?
As with any mattress purchase, it all boils down to preference. Memory foam toppers aren’t fit for all types of people. It may be too thin, as it is only about an inch to four inches in thickness. The support delivered by a topper is all concentrated on the top. It’s a good addition to an already existing bed, which just needs rejuvenation. You don’t to spend thousands of dollars, but you can get the feel of a new bed right away.
Memory foam mattresses on the other hand provide support from the bottom all the way to the top. It is, however, only partly memory foam, since this usually comes with another layer of foam material, making it denser and thicker. It’s much more ideal for a lot of people. However, prices for an actual mattress itself can be very expensive.
Eventually, however, buying a new bed, than just adding a topper would be better in the long run.
