I’m looking for advice about getting a mattress topper. It sounds like latex is the way to go. Here’s my situation.
I have a king size, 5+ year old, Mlillly memory foam mattress. It’s solid Memory Foam with no pillow top.
It’s pretty bare bones at only 6” deep. It’s pretty firm, and for the first two hours it provides great support but it hurts my shoulders and hips.
For the rest of the night, once it’s fully warmed up, it starts to sag, my body gets bent into weird shapes, and well, you know the rest.
Currently, I have a cheap, non-Memory Foam topper that helps mitigate the sagging a bit. But I need something better.
Do you think a latex topper will work over a Memory Foam mattress like this? And if so, what thickness? And which one would you recommend?
Just as an aside, in my guest room, I have a fairly new inner spring mattress with a pillow top that I occasionally sleep on.
While I really like the way the springs push up and support my body, the mattress is a little hard on my shoulders and hips.
I added a 1.5” Memory Foam topper for comfort, but the underlying pillow top is lumpy and the mattress is sagging in the middle which doesn’t help.
I hate sleeping on an uneven surface, which is why I like the Mlily mattress. It doesn’t have any permanent impressions, and it’s always flat when I lie down.
I’d like to keep it if I can and just use a topper if possible. If you don’t think that’ll work, can you also recommend a mattress to go with the topper?
Please let me know what you think.
Thank you so much, Karen
Your complaint is a common one, as memory foam is, basically, worthless beyond being comfortable enough to make the sale.
All you'll need is an Ever-Eden 2" of Soft Talalay Latex Mattress Topper....shown here:
Talalay Latex toppers are normally purchased as “Soft” for the purpose of softening a too firm mattress. However, both, the Vytex Dunlop & Talalay Latex Mattress ...
Once it arrives, I suggest flipping your mattress over before adding the latex topper.
You can try it on both sides, but for most, flipping the mattress first works better.

An Important Note:
Any kind of moisture, be it from spills, accidents or perspiration causes a mattress to wear prematurely.
