Soft Mattress Toppers: When to Consider

Are you considering a mattress topper but are hesitating because you haven't quite figured out all the features and characteristic of each topper? If so, you're in good company! Lots of people are searching for the same answers 😏

For this reason, we have written this article.  The post is intended to share everything we know about mattress mattress toppers with a soft or plush feel. Once you understand the benefits and drawbacks of a soft topper, you can decide if a topper with these characteristics is right for you.

The level of firmness

Mattress toppers have 3 firmness levels:

  • Hard or firm: a firm mattress topper offers good support for an old or sagging mattress.
  • Balanced: delivers a universal feel, neither too hard nor too soft, mainly recommended by our specialists for multi-position sleepers.
  • Soft or plush: usually memory foam mattress toppers with lots of padding or even feather, down or cotton mattress toppers .

The softest and most bouncy mattress toppers on the market are polyester, feather and down mattress toppers. If you really want to sink into the bed, we advise you to opt for our premium hybrid memory foam mattress topper.

The disadvantages of a soft mattress topper

  • It is not suitable for heavier people because they can sink excessively, this can cause discomfort including back pain ❌
  • A mattress topper that is too soft is also not suitable for people who tend to sleep on their stomach because it can over-flex your spine❌
  • If your partner is heavier, it is possible that a soft mattress topper will cause them discomfort resulting in restless nights
  • Soft toppers might have a short lifespan than firm toppers because with age the mattress toppers become more soft, ultimately becoming too soft ❌

Who is it recommended for?

The soft mattress topper is recommended for children, people with a smaller frame or build and people who appreciate softness. In addition, if you sleep on your back or on your side, specialists advise you to opt for this type of mattress topper to avoid back pain and improve your quality of sleep.

Note 🤔
Even if you really appreciate the softness, it is important not to opt for a mattress topper that is too soft because it can cause excessive sinking due to a lack of support which will eventually cause back, hip or neck pain.
