How Thick Should a Latex Mattress Topper Be?

A Latex Mattress Topper

A latex mattress topper is placed on top of your existing mattress. It is a layer of latex that can either be made with Talalay Latex or Dunlop Latex. These toppers can come in 1, 2, 3, or 4 inches in thickness.

Latex toppers are used to adjust the firmness of your mattress and to improve its ability to provide the necessary support. Dunlop latex toppers are firmer and more durable, whereas Talalay latex toppers are plusher and more forgiving, for pressure point relief.

Choosing to Buy a Latex Topper

There are several reasons. How well you sleep on the topper is, of course, at the top of the list, their dimensions and weight, the age of your existing mattress, and more, all go in to affect your ability to have a restful night’s sleep, and whether a topper is right for you.

If your current mattress is no longer providing a good night’s sleep, but your budget doesn’t yet allow for the financial commitment of purchasing another mattress, a latex topper is a great idea. It will introduce you to the feel of a latex mattress and provide the added support that latex is known for, during this period. Additionally, it may add years of life to your current mattress.

Once you’ve decided that a latex topper is the right purchase to make, you should then determine what attributes you are looking for.

What You May Consider About Latex Mattresses

Here are the highlights:

  • Mould and mildew resistance
  • Durability
  • Temperature Control
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Breathable
  • High Quality
  • Pressure Point Relief
  • Top Tier Support
  • All Natural

Further considerations are:

Motion Isolation: When your bedmate rolls over, it can be highly disruptive for many. If you add a latex topper, it helps to minimize and isolate that motion, helping you remain asleep. This may also be a problem for your bedmate.

Sleeping Hot: Unlike Memory foam, a 2-to-3-inch latex topper will prevent heat from becoming trapped around your body. Its increased breathability provides a cooler sleep, helping you stay asleep.

Topper Thickness: Getting in and out of bed vs comfort (thicker ones being more comfortable). Toppers can add noticeable height to your bed, but those requiring more support for their weight might opt for a thicker topper.

Off-gassing: Unlike Memory foam mattresses, natural latex mattresses do not release toxic gasses and chemicals. Although these generally dissipate over time, they remain in your house for a while, so for eco-friendly households, natural latex is better.

Value: The value of your purchase is paramount. The thickness, material quality, and warranties affect the value of your topper.

So, What is the Right Thickness to Choose for Your Mattress Topper?

Several things determine thickness, including density, comfort requirements, your or your bed-mates weight, value, firmness options, the manufacturer, and several others.
