The bottom layer is what provides the support. Currently, a Stearns and Foster mattress offers two types of support; innerspring and latex. Whichever you choose, you will be getting the best. The innerspring version contains its 504 Progressive Support Coils that are double offset with 12 3/4 gauge high-carbon steel. They are also twice tempered which helps them retain their shape better and for longer. Latex is becoming popular once again; it's hypoallergenic and conforms to the sleeper's body shape.
Why is a topper that bends to your body a good idea? Well, you'll find that the parts of you that need supporting will get it. Many bed topper actually change the density along the bed... so that your torso - as an example - is supported more than the head (which is much lighter). The foam distributes weight evenly across the surface of the bed so that you'll find your weight is comfortably looked after.
According to The International Sleep Products Association, 10.8 years is the average life of a mattress and box spring. There are 312 million people in the U.S. today. Together, these numbers mean that around 48 million mattresses and/or box springs are sent to landfills every year. These estimates do not include units from hotels or dormitories, which are replaced more frequently.
There are some disadvantages to memory toppers. They are usually made of quite synthetic materials although there are more natural ones appearing. These toppers usually have quite a bit of a smell to them and you'll need to air a new one for about a day before you can put it onto your bed. Thankfully it also takes about a day for the thing to actually unravel itself from the packaging that it comes in so it's all okay! Memory foam regardless of the density rating is a dense material. This can lead to toppers being quite difficult to breathe and circulate air. They can mean that a lot of heat that is generated by your body is trapped. Not something that most people like. Most toppers have 'open cell' designs leading to better breathability however you will notice a difference compared to a straight mattress. You can always put another topper on the top such as one made of fibre fill to remove those disadvantages. Some memory foam toppers even come with fiber fill toppings for those people that want that.
