Understand Your Sleep Style - Before you invest in any bedding, think about how you sleep. Are you a back, side, or stomach sleeper? Maybe you switch positions throughout the night. No matter your style, there's a mattress topper out there for you. For side sleepers, a soft topper with more down than feathers is ideal. This will allow your shoulders, hips, knees and ankles to sink comfortably into the bed. Stomach sleepers should opt for a firmer topper to keep their spine aligned. Back sleepers typically do best with a medium-firm topper that supports their lower back while allowing their shoulders to sink in.

Discover Your Ideal Mattress Topper - When it comes to choosing between softness and support in mattress toppers, it all boils down to the materials used. You don't necessarily have to test out a topper to know how it feels, just take a look at the specs. Keep in mind, though, that memory foam isn't the most breathable option, so it may not be the best choice for hot sleepers. Look at more natural fillings like wool, feather or pure down options. For a luxurious, sink-in feeling, a feather topper is the way to go. These toppers are filled with down or down alternative, similar to high-quality duvet inserts. While a featherbed may not offer as much support, it will feel soft and squishy, providing a superior sleeping experience.

Ways to Stay Cool While Sleeping - Once you've figured out your sleep style and the filling that is good for you, it's important to consider your internal temperature. Do you tend to sleep hot or cool? If you experience night sweats, hot flashes, or just generally run warm, your mattress could be the culprit. Memory foam mattresses are notorious for trapping heat, making you feel like you're in a sauna. The thick foam holds onto heat and reflects it back onto your body, creating a cycle of discomfort. Feather and down or synthetic fills are a better option, not only does this type of mattress topper help regulate your body temperature overnight, but it's also easy to clean.

Secure Your Topper - When it comes to mattress toppers, the goal is to upgrade your sleep easily and quickly. If you find yourself struggling to keep your topper in place all night, it's probably time to find a new one. To ensure a snug fit, look for toppers with straps that go all the way around your mattress. Some specialty sleep stores offer super-stretchy toppers for deep-pocket mattresses. Make sure to check the specifications to see how much stretch your topper has.

Lastly, Determine if You Really Need One - Investing in a mattress topper can completely change the look and feel of your bed without breaking the bank. Personally, my mattress topper was a game-changer during my college days and continues to make my new, firmer mattress more comfortable. If you're living in a dorm or rental where getting a new mattress isn't an option, a topper could be a great solution. Using a topper can also help protect your mattress and extend its lifespan.

There are many reasons to consider purchasing a mattress topper. In my opinion, a good night's sleep is priceless, so any amount spent on achieving that is worth it.
