If you want to extend the shelf life of your mattress and add a plush layer of comfort, you need to snap up a mattress topper.
They're layers of padding, which can wool, microfibre or memory foam and can make your bed feel extra cosy.
Ones with cotton covers can keep you cool and wick away sweat, too.
Best of all, they're easy to look after. Simply pop them in the washing machine every three to six months, then allow to air dry. For treating minor stains, a targeted spot cleaner can do the job.
To help you find the perfect mattress topper for your bed, we've compiled our top-rated designs to keep you comfortable all night long.
