The secret to good sleep revealed!

There is nothing better than a good nights sleep and then feeling amazing when you wake up. But when you can't get that, it's normally due to one issue.

Your mattress!

Maybe you can't remember the last time you replaced your mattress, and it's not supportive whatsoever, or maybe you have a brand new mattress that is way too firm for your liking. If you are someone that constantly has battles with their mattress but cannot afford to replace it, we have a solution! Mattress toppers are the cheaper solution to getting a better nights sleep. Here is our one-stop guide on what mattress toppers are and why you need one tonight!

What is a mattress topper?

A mattress topper (also known as a bed topper) is simply a removable layer that you add on top of your mattress to provide comfort and support for your body as you sleep. It's as easy as putting a fitted sheet on your bed. Mattress toppers can help your mattress in different ways depending on the condition of your mattress. Next time you hop into bed ask yourself these questions:

Is my mattress too firm and is uncomfortable to sleep on?

Or do I have a mattress that is starting to get old and sag?

A mattress topper is the solution to both of those problems.

If you find that you have too firm of a mattress for your liking, simply putting a mattress topper on to your bed means that your body is supported whilst you sleep, giving those people who love a softer yet supportive bed a perfect nights sleep. 

It is always recommended that before you buy any mattress you should try it, but sometimes that's not possible and a mattress topper is the most appropriate solution.

With a mattress that is starting to age, a mattress topper will revitalise that mattress and give you added support and less sag. A mattress topper is not a solution to a 20-year-old mattress, but it can help with one that is aging and is a cost-effective way to quickly help get a better nights sleep.

If you have an old mattress that is sagging and too soft, your back is most likely not getting the support it requires. That's why sometimes if you have too soft of a mattress, your back can be in pain when you wake up. While a mattress topper will help support your back and the rest of your body as you sleep, it is no replacement for professional medical help.

Interestingly, I have also heard stories of people that don't really have an issue with their mattress, but still tried a mattress topper and haven't looked back since. Mattress toppers just add a feeling of luxury, similar to the feeling of sleeping amongst the clouds.

On average, you spend 56 hours sleeping a week.

That's a lot of time.

You wouldn't sit in an uncomfortable chair for that long so why sleep without the support and comfort you could have with a mattress topper?

How cost-effective is a bed topper?

Unfortunately, mattresses are not a light investment. In Australia, to get a decent mattress you can pay upwards of $2,500 which for most people is quite a large sum of money. Rest assured mattress toppers do not cost anywhere near that amount, and we have a full range of mattress toppers from budget-friendly options to more luxury but still cost-effective options. Our Ramesses range of toppers are a great solution if you are ready to begin getting a better nights sleep and are looking for a budget-conscious option.

How do I choose the best mattress topper for me?

Choosing the best mattress topper for you depends on a few different things. Here is our quick little guide on how to choose the right topper for you!

Step 1. Know the size of your bed.

There are many different sized beds out there in the world, and it's always handy to know what size your bed is whenever you are looking at bedding online. You can typically find the size of your bed on the tag of the mattress, but it is always recommended that you actually measure the size of your bed to ensure you get the right-sized bedding for your needs.

Step 2. Know the depth of your bed.

Did you know that you can get different size wall depths with mattresses? You should always check the depth of your mattress before buying any sheet set, protector, topper or any other piece of bedding. Once you know the full dimensions of your mattress, you can decide on what material is best for you.

Step 3. Choose the right material for your needs.

There are a few different types of material toppers can be made out of. Here is a quick rundown:

Down & Feather

Typically used on mattresses that are too firm, down & feather is a luxury material.


The best selling mattress topper for us is a microfibre topper. Cost-effective and high-quality, this material is perfect for beds that are both too firm and too soft.


This material is a favourite and provides excellent support for your back and the rest of your body as you sleep. You can use this type of topper on both firm and soft beds but is typically used on more softer beds.

Once you have gone through those steps, you should be on your way to choosing the best mattress topper for you! If you are interested in taking a look at our full range of mattress toppers, simply click

Janet ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5 Star Review

Excellent value. I bought it to make the guest bedroom mattress more comfortable, my guests slept beautifully, and said they felt so comfortable and cosy all night, firm, but soft, gentle on the body and yet supports you. Loved this product, and great fit, love that it has lots of sides to tuck under the mattress..I highly recommend this mattress topper!

Jessica ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5 Star Review

I purchased this topper as I was getting some back pain from my mattress and didn’t want to fork out the money on a new mattress. So thought I’d give a new topper a go first! This is AMAZING! My back hasn’t been in any pain since. It’s so soft and highly recommend!
