What to look for when choosing a twin mattress topper

Looking to pick out your own twin mattress topper? No stress. Here are a few things to look out for:

Material: Look out for a topper made from high-density foam or fiberfill. While it’s good for your wallet to find budget-friendly options, it’s good for your body to choose materials that are durable and supportive.

Thickness: Look for one with a suitable thickness and density for your needs. When browsing, keep an eye out for a thickness of 2 to 4 inches and around 2.5-3.5 pounds per cubic foot. These are common and can be budget-friendly while still offering plenty of comfort.
