A few short guidelines when shopping for Memory Foam Mattress Toppers...
Choose your memory foam mattress topper based on its use. For everyday use, a higher weight (density) memory foam mattress topper will not wear down and form body depressions or soft spots, while the cheaper ones eventually will wear out right where your hips are. Density doesn't refer to how hard the memory foam mattress topper is, just how heavy it is. The heavier it is the longer it will last. We've had such great results with our 5.3-pound memory foam mattress topper that we warrant it will not soften or form any depressions for 15 years.
How do you sleep? Side sleepers usually like the 3"–4" thickness. Back and stomach sleepers usually like 2". The more you weigh, the thicker you'll want.
Are you a hot sleeper? If so, be sure to use something like our cotton quilted mattress pad between your memory foam topper and your sheets to add a breathable area to wick away heat. Consider adding a case to protect your memory foam. It tears if snagged and will get dirty easily.
Based on customer feedback, people really like how our memory foam mattress topper has little to no smell, and that there are no flame retardants added to our memory foam mattress topper.

A memory foam mattress topper will soften then conform once in contact with body pressure and heat. This is how memory foam mattress toppers shape to your body. A lower quality memory foam mattress topper (lower density/lower weight) is pressure sensitive only, rather than heat sensitive. This means lower weight memory foam mattress toppers will re-form hastily, providing less support than higher weight ones.
Memory foam mattress topper color will change to brown over time from exposure to air and sunlight. A memory foam mattress topper may come out of its original packaging already starting to discolor. This is a natural quality of the foam and will not in any way affect its performance or warranty. This discoloration may look like a stain. The color of the memory foam mattress topper is not warranted and it will not be replaced because of discoloration, since this is a natural expectation of any memory foam mattress topper. Store all memory foam toppers flat after opening to prevent ripping.
Despite the fact that there are few visible indications that speak for the quality of a memory foam mattress topper, you can still easily find out the quality. A low end quality memory foam mattress topper (available at most stores that carry bedding) has a density of 4.0 lbs/ft3 or less. These memory foam mattress pads score poorly on the quality scale and can become useless in a couple years. Dense memory foam mattress pads should have 5.3 lbs/ft3 as the listed density. 5.3-lb memory foam mattress pads can be used for 15 years (realistically), maybe 30 years (optimistically), before it becomes soft and loses its resistance. A memory foam mattress topper of high quality will cost more. There's more raw material. A cheap memory foam mattress topper (queen size) that is 3" high should not cost more than $170. If it is less than $100, expect the foam to collapse within the first year. A 5.3-lb memory foam mattress topper (queen size) that is 3" thick will cost around $300. Research the company or manufacturer you have chosen to buy the memory foam mattress topper from to see their warranty; if not available or prorated, the company wants you to be back soon to buy another one. With this information, you will be a hard target for people over-selling their cheap memory foam mattress topper. Double check that the memory foam mattress topper is covered by a warranty; be sure the customer service is up to par. If not, get ready for disappointment. Use this to your advantage and good luck!
