Buying a new mattress can be expensive, but what if your existing mattress hasn’t quite reached its end life, yet it’s starting to fail to provide the right support to your body.

You might feel caught in the middle, having to dish out big bucks buying a new latex mattress or compromising your sleep for a little longer until your old mattress has reached a condition that justifies throwing it out.

That’s where a plush bed natural latex toppers come in as a good investment, bringing huge difference to your sleep quality. They come in various measurements (both in area and thickness), material types, and support, making it easy to find just what you’re looking for in terms of your specific bed size and needs.

What Is A Latex Topper & What Is It Used For?

A latex mattress topper is a great idea for people who want to relieve pressure and motion isolation of memory foam but need the durability of latex.

Essentially a latex topper is a type of “pad” whereby adding an extra layer to your mattress for an instant change in the characteristics and feel of the existing mattress. If your mattress is now too soft for your needs, you can make it harder. Likewise, if a mattress is hard, you can make it softer.

The plushbeds natural latex topper is made of pure soft, natural Dunlop Latex that makes it one of the best materials for this type of mattress topper. It’s durable, breathable, and gives you enough support.

The best thing about the natural latex toppers is that they come in various thicknesses depending on your needs. With many sizes available, you can find one that suits your bed easily no matter how tall or heavy you are or if you are looking for lighter or thicker toppers.

Even if your mattress is collapsing slightly in one or several areas, a mattress latex topper can even it out… although that will depend on how much it is collapsing.

To put it crudely, a topper mattress can be seen as a fantastic “patch up” job that ultimately saves you money!

Why Should You Buy A Plushbed Natural Latex Topper?

Here are three reasons why picking a plushbeds natural latex topper is a good idea. It’s worth noting these advantages only apply if you pick the right mattress topper and that very much depends on the ‘type’ of sleeper you are.

  • An inexpensive fix to an expensive problem Finding a mattress that feels comfortable in the shop is one thing, however, you never really know how it’s going to perform until you test it out for several hours. Plushbeds latex mattress toppers can be an inexpensive solution to adjusting the level of firmness of your existing mattress if you’ve already spent a pretty penny on it!
  • Rejuvenating your old bed Conversely, an old mattress that’s moderately damaged might not be ready for throwing out. That’s where a latex mattress topper can also come to save the day by leveling out sags and lumps.
  • Alleviates joints and spinal stress points Balanced weight distribution is vital for alleviating strain to the back, neck, and other joints on the body. Choosing the right latex mattress topper will help preserve your back, but that will depend on the ‘type’ of sleeper you are as discussed a little further down.

How To Pick A Plushbed Natural Latex Topper?

The first thing that comes to mind is, of course, comfort and your sleeping position preference.

Let’s look at factors to consider before making a decision on a new topper!

Did You Know?

A case study was conducted to see if there were any changes in sleep quality, perceived stress, or back pain were made after introducing a new bedding system.

Significant improvements were made in each case!

Material Type

The quality of material equates to durability, which usually means cheaper in the long run. However, quality can mean a lot more than retaining its characteristics over long periods of time.

We spend approximately 1/3 of our lives sleeping, so the environment around our bed is not something to ignore. Good quality memory foam topper and mattress will consider the health of individuals and certify no dangerous chemicals are used, are hypo-allergenic, AND use natural ingredients that are not harmful to the environment.

Size & Fit

Don’t spend all your time souring the perfect latex topper for your needs, only to find you forgot to check sizes!

Plushbeds Mattress Toppers come in a variety of sizes, so sourcing one to fit your bed shouldn’t be too difficult. Having said that, if it’s possible to source a brand of mattress topper that matches your mattress brand, then that will ensure a perfect fit and peace of mind when making your purchase (especially when ordering online).

Good manufactures will make it easy for you to source mattress sizes on their website, with clear instructions. They also want you to get it right the first time to make your buying experience as simple and comfortable as possible.

Plushbeds’ mattress chart clearly marks out topper sizes.

Surface Firmness

Personal preference doesn’t necessarily translate to what’s good for you and your health. It’s unlikely having a soft surface to sleep on will help support your spine and may even cause pain over time (even if it is comfortable to sleep on).

If you read a little further down on the correlation between sleeping positions and mattress firmness, you’ll see that a soft surface, more often than not, will not do your back any good.

Determining the level of firmness that suits you, will depend on your sleeping position, the material of the mattress, and its density, as well as memory foam.

How Sleeping Positions Affect Your Comfort + Tips on Picking The Right Firmness

Did you know determining the ideal firmness of your mattress pad depends on the “type” of sleeper you are?

Picking the wrong firmness can interfere with weight distribution and add pressure points to various parts of the body. This can cause or promote joint & back pains and even disturb spinal alignment which is far from pleasant. Since we don’t want that to happen, let’s dig a little deeper to see why that is (and how to prevent it) by comparing the three types of sleepers.

For Stomach Sleepers

If you are naturally sleep If you naturally sleep on your stomach, then the firmer toppers are ideal for you. This is because the mattress topper support prevents the sleeper’s stomach from sinking in too deeply into the mattress topper and causing discomfort.

For Back Sleepers

Sleepers who prefer laying on their backs tend to prefer the medium plushbeds latex topper as it offers support on the back due to the curvature in your back. The firm mattress will offer less support along with certain points of the back which is why a little sinking is needed, but not too much though..

Mattress firmness for back sleepers

For Side Sleepers

Side sleepers have less body surface area in contact with the mattress. If the latex topper is too hard, then digging into the shoulder, hip & knee will take place. These parts of the body need to sink in enough to allow support by other parts of the body… hence a softer mattress.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at our recommended premium plushbeds mattress toppers that offer excellent support and cooling properties that should assist with back pain relief and provide a good night’s sleep.

Other Benefits Mattress Toppers Can Provide?

There are numerous benefits, from health benefits to cooler night sleeps and, simply speaking, overall quality of sleep that often affects our lifestyle and how we deal with day-to-day chores and simple activities.

Let’s mention a few benefits!

Cooler Night Sleeps

Many traditional memory foam mattresses are designed to channel heat away rather than act as an insulator giving you a nice comfortable sleep (as opposed to a sweaty one).

For example, some types of memory foam are made from an open-cell Viscoelastic structure to repel the heat and for latex toppers, this is can be achieved by having thousands of ventilation holes to promote airflow for a cooling temperature effect, which ultimately improves sleep quality.

Isolating Motion Transfer

Who likes to be disturbed while sleeping? If your partner moves a lot in their sleep, or they get up often to go to the toilet in the middle of the night, then a mattress topper might be for you. Properties for isolating motion will provide you and your partner with a great sleep quality.

Affordability (Mattresses Are Expensive)

Mattresses can be expensive to replace. However, an affordable alternative (particularly if suffering from back pain) would be purchasing a mattress topper for a fraction of the cost. Your existing mattress is likely sagging by now and adding an extra layer to it can provide that extra support your need!

Supportive & Conforming Properties

Most topper mattresses offer a variety of thicknesses, sizes, as well as different materials and densities that shape your body for solid cushioning and ultimate comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
✓ I have a medium firmness mattress and would like it firmer, can I manage this with wool toppers?

If your mattress no longer suits your requirements due to its age or maybe your preference has changed, you can use a plushbeds topper to change its characteristics. PlushBeds have a variety of sizes, thicknesses, and firmnesses, so it would be a question of ordering the one to your liking.

✓ I want a plushbeds latex topper for support but I am worried it will sleep too warm?

Latex toppers respond quickly while being gentle to your movements and act as a great pressure relief while supporting your body. Some latex toppers can help you sleep cool (cooler than others) because they are air-infused to allow for a cooler sleeping surface. Either way, with a good organic cotton topper, you will be sleeping cool.

✓ Are latex mattress toppers toxic?

No, latex mattress toppers are not toxic (on top of that, it is dust mite resistant). Latex is a natural material made from rubber trees, and it contains proteins that are capable of triggering allergic reactions in some people. To avoid this type of reaction, you should look for mattress toppers that are made with natural rubber or man-made polyurethane. If you're uncertain whether a mattress topper is made from natural latex, you should avoid it.

✓ Is a latex topper good for side sleepers?

Yes, a natural latex topper is good for side sleepers. They provide even body distribution which is excellent for everyday living. The softness of the memory foam conforms easily into the curves of your spinal column giving you enough comfort that lasts throughout the night.

✓ Which is better latex or memory foam topper?

Both are great options. Latex is considered to be one of the more durable materials since it doesn't absorb moisture or body heat easily. Memory foam, on the other hand, conforms easily according to the size and shape of your body. However, memory foam toppers have a greater tendency to sag so it needs more regular flipping or rotation than latex.

✓ How long does a latex mattress topper last?

A latex mattress topper lasts about 10 years, give or take. Although it doesn't sag easily since it is quite durable, this material does lose its natural elasticity after a few years of use. The cushioning also become firmer over time which may not be good for some people especially if they're heavy or have back problems.
