The best mattress topper for you depends on your individual needs. Each material has certain properties and is, therefore, better suited for certain people than for others. There is no best mattress topper out there, just as there is no best mattress for everyone. However, the most common types of toppers are Visco toppers, cold foam toppers, latex toppers, and gel toppers.

For a soft and warm feeling.
A mattress topper made of Visco foam (also called memory foam) is a very popular variant. A Visco topper provides a pleasantly soft feeling when lying down and adapts perfectly to the body. A Visco topper distributes pressure and so can noticeably relieve surface muscular tension. Visco foam toppers create a warmer temperature and are recommended for frostbite in winter.
Cold foam toppers
Firmer, temperature-neutral and hypoallergenic.
Mattress toppers made of cold foam have an open-cell pore structure. This means they are more breathable than Visco toppers. They are temperature-neutral, but you cannot reduce the sleeping temperature with a cold foam topper.
Mattress toppers made of cold foam are generally firmer than other toppers. Cold foam toppers are also suitable for those suffering from allergies. Both Visco foam and cold foam toppers offer very good body support, although our experience has shown that the pressure distribution with a Visco foam topper is a bit better. The great thing about cold foam toppers is that they dissipate excess heat and moisture.
Latex foam toppers
Point elastic and stable.
A mattress topper made of latex is characterised by its stability and durability. There are different types of latex mattress toppers, such as natural latex or synthetic latex. High-quality latex, like Talalay latex, is characterised by very good point elasticity.
Latex toppers feel soft and comfortable. Similar to Visco toppers, they store body heat and are perfect for those who feel cold easily.
