Memory foam toppers

Post by mike on Tue 12 Jul 2011, 4:20 pm

We have been using self inflating air beds on top of the mattress very comfy and cures condensation under the bed,one of them has a puncture so thought i would try a topper,what thickness do people use and can it be left on when folding away.

we use a 2inch thick topper its 4ft wide and fits perfectly,ours was 65kg density i think that must be based a cubic mtr or something,but it is important to buy the highest grade you can,i have seen 88kg before.I think alot of really cheap ones are 40kg which wont add any real support.I am sure we paid about £60 delivered for ours and yes we just laid ours on the dandy before we dropped the walls on to it.I have noticed we get condensation with it though where as we never did with the air mattress.

we used to use an inflatable airbed but now we have a 2in thick one with foam density of 65kgs/sqm apparently if its any thinner than 2 inch and less than 50kgs/sqm they are not worth having and dont make any difference we got ours online and it is a 4ft double with zip on cover so fits dandy bed perfect think it was around £60 delivered,
i know you can get these cheaper in b&m and poundstretcher etc but i checked all the boxes and couldn't find the foam density on any of them which is why we got ours online

we leave it in the dandy but dont close bed down on it we lay it on top of everything that is packed in floor area which hopefully packs out void and helps prevent wings rubbing or catching on the stuff below it Wink

and in our opinion it definately improves the nights sleeps

mattress toppers

We've got a 2" memory foam topper, inside a zip on cover. It's very comfy and we pack it much as Vicki has mentioned, to stop things rattling about. They can be, and ours is, quite heavy and bulky which is not a plus point for them. Recently saw that Aldi were selling the self inflating ones at £13 and got a couple to replace the two that the grandchildren broke by screwing the caps off. We'd had the others for a few years and had good serice out of them. The new ones seem better quality and also seemed more comfortable, especially when given an extra puff of air when inflated. Minimum storage is obviously a plus point.

I use a single topper on my dandy bed, poor John gets the settee side Sad I dont know if its because it doesn't reach the side wall but I don't get condensation anywhere but the windows. It also makes the bed feel warmer and is very comfortable but mine also has a cotton zip cover and it was not an expensive one so the quality probably isn't all that great but it really makes a difference ..... Netto £29.00


I also pull it across over the centre of the dandy and fold the walls onto it.

we didn't get condensation with the air bed i guess heat doesn't transfer through the air,which is why double glazing is so effective
