1. Foam. You can purchase these toppers in a variety of thicknesses and even get ones with massaging ridges. Most of them are fairly inexpensive, even for large beds, and are the easiest option if you want your mattress to be softer.
2. Memory foam. This is the choice for people with bad backs, chronic pain, or those who love luxury. Memory foam is just the right marriage of soft and firm and forms to your body.
3. Quilted. These add some softness but not enough to displease the people who enjoy their firm mattresses. They are great for mattresses that are wearing out on top, extra protection, and that little bit of added comfort. They are also inexpensive and usually machine washable. This is a great option for kids’ beds.
4. Gel mats. These are perfect for hot summers. Some of them are even designed to cool. These are the choice for people who generally overheat and women going through menopause. You will feel like you are on a comfy waterbed.
