So, what makes hypoallergenic mattress toppers so special? You may wonder whether you need a hypoallergenic topper if you are already satisfied with your mattress. In this segment, we are going to talk about main reasons for getting a nice, quality hypoallergenic mattress topper.
When you browse for a hypoallergenic mattress topper you need to have a few important things in mind in order to choose a good one. Here we made a list of things that are synonymous with a high-quality topper.
High-quality hypoallergenic mattress toppers should be waterproof. This is a very important feature because it affects medical benefits that you get from your mattress topper, as well as its durability. Waterproof hypoallergenic mattress toppers are easier to clean, they last longer and they provide better security for your health.
When buying hypoallergenic mattress toppers pay attention to the stitching. Down in a topper can move around or become lumpy overtime if stitching is not done properly. Aim for the diamond-shaped stitching.
Hypoallergenic mattress toppers that are washable at low temperatures can save you a lot of time and energy. Also, see if the topper can be tumble dried. Some of the hypoallergenic mattress toppers can’t be put in a drier due to the materials.
Luxury hypoallergenic mattress toppers provide a cooling effect. A mattress topper that regulates temperature makes sleeping a lot more pleasant, especially during the warmer months.
As we said, one of the main reasons for getting a topper is to prolong the lifespan of your mattress. So, the durability of a mattress topper is pretty important. Stitching and materials play a big role in a durability of a mattress topper. Be sure to look for dawn mattress toppers and toppers with diamond stitching. Also, pay attention to the stitching on the edges of a topper and for the recommended washing temperature.
Hypoallergenic toppers made of polyester or siliconized down tend to absorb less, moisture and odour if any. Toppers made from other materials sometimes absorb odours. This shouldn’t be a huge issue if the topper is easy to wash at low temperatures. Otherwise, it can become an annoying problem over time.
Some hypoallergenic mattress toppers can make noise upon pressure due to the composition of materials. The tricky part is, some of them that do, lose this annoying characteristic after the first wash. So, go through a few customer reviews before deciding on a topper and see if the topper remains “noisy” even after washing.
A silky, smooth cover boosts the quality of various important features of hypoallergenic mattress toppers. The good cover feels better on the skin and makes a topper more comfortable. Also, a cover can increase the hypoallergenic and antibacterial effect of a topper. So, if a mattress topper comes with a high-quality cover that’s definitely a big plus.
Having a quality hypoallergenic mattress topper has many advantages, both for your health and for your budget. But finding a good, long-lasting and comfortable mattress topper isn’t always easy. So, be sure to have in mind our simple, yet useful, guidelines for buying a right topper. Choose wisely and improve your sleeping experience!
