A good mattress is a big investment. Your mattress is also arguably one of the most important, and most heavily used, pieces of furniture you own. As such, you want to make sure it’s looked after and continues to support high-quality sleep for years to come.  
This is where a mattress topper or mattress protector could help. These products are designed to optimise your mattress’s lifespan, keeping it clean and comfortable for longer. They can also add a little extra luxury and improve the overall health of your sleeping environment.
But what exactly do these products do? And how do you pick the best one to buy?

Mattress Topper versus Mattress Protector – What’s the difference?      

Before we get into specifics, we need to look at the difference between these two products. While often marketed together, mattress toppers and mattress protectors are distinctly different things.
As the name suggests, a mattress topper sits on top of your mattress, providing extra padding. It’s an investment in comfort and often used to soften older or firmer mattresses. It also adds a sense of luxuriousness, working with your mattress to provide a balance of cushioning and support.
Similarly, and aptly named, a mattress protector is designed to create a barrier between you and your mattress. It’s an investment in longevity, protecting your mattress from the damage caused by sweat and body oils. Some can also help minimise your exposure to allergens, like dead skin cells and dust mites.
With this in mind, mattress toppers and mattress protectors can be used together, or individually. It all depends on your mattress, your situation, and any extra protection or cushioning you need.
