WHICH TOPPER IS BEST FOR ME, 50mm or 75mm?
For mattresses that already have decent padding or a built-in pillow top, a memory foam mattress topper of 50mm (2") is recommended.
If your mattress is particularly firm or worn, then a thickness of 75mm (3") should provide an appropriate level of comfort.This one is also recommended for a heavier person weighing over (say) 90kg
Our Classic 50mm topper provides all the benefits of memory foam, adding that extra layer of comfort over your existing mattress.
Our Classic 75mm topper provides the full therapeutic benefits of memory foam and for those wanting to indulge in some extra luxury. It is especially suitable for those weighing over 75kg.
Our Smartgel™ Topper is specially designed for hot sleepers. It provides all the benefits of our 75mm topper, featuring a gel-infused memory foam, topped with our unique, icy silk cover on the gel side, making it fully reversible for hot or cold nights.
WHY IS THE SLUMBERTOP SUPERIOR?
SlumberTop is constructed of 100% visco-elastic memory foam and with a 70kg/cub.m. density it is the highest in NZ. Since its introduction in 2010 it has a built proven track record and its construction remains unchanged. It is manufactured in China to the highest standards (9001 accreditation) and foam is certified as being free from harmful substances.
WILL A TOPPER OVERCOME MY SAGGING MATTRESS OR BASE?
Please note that a topper will not overcome a sagging mattress or base as over time the topper also will sag.
WHAT IS THE BEST QUALITY OF MEMORY FOAM TO BUY?
Look for density
Foam quality is measured by density (not thickness). The denser (ie heavier) the foam, the more support it gives you and the longer it will last. A SlumberTop’s density of 70kg is considered optimum for proper therapeutic support. Thicker foams do not necessarily provide better support. A lower density (and therefore lower quality) requires thicker foam to provide similar support. With normal use, your SlumberTop will provide many years of comfort.
WHAT IS MEMORY FOAM?
Unique & Revolutionary
A unique and revolutionary visco-elastic material developed by NASA in the 60’s to counteract the G-forces encountered by their astronauts, that recovers its shape quickly and easily.
WHAT ELSE IS MEMORY FOAM USED FOR?
In commercial aviation seating where its super-motion-absorption properties ensure the comfort of long-haul pilots and first-class passengers and in hospital beds where its super-therapeutic properties aid patient recovery.
HOW DOES MEMORY FOAM WORK?
Moulds to the contours of your body
Memory foam is heat-sensitive allowing it to mould to the contours of your body.
With even weight distribution and being fully supported, your body experiences less nerve compression and increased blood flow, allowing you to move into a deep, uninterrupted REM sleep – essential for a proper night’s rest. In short, memory foam will help you sleep better.
WHY BUY A MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS TOPPER?
Super comfortable & super affordable

Buyers of memory foam toppers and mattresses of all ages report :
Relief from backaches and joint pain
Reduced tossing and turning leading to an enhanced sleeping experience
Waking up feeling refreshed and energised
Memory foam also has motion-deadening properties, which means you can be assured of a proper night’s rest if even if your partner tosses and turns throughout the night.
HOW CAN MEMORY FOAM HELP ME GET MORE SLEEP?
Induces REM Sleep
Restlessness is often caused by a lack of proper mattress support and cuts into the amount of Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep that you get during the night. REM sleep is the most essential part of your sleep cycle and can take as long as 90 minutes to reach. If you toss and turn during the night, even if you don’t wake up, you will not reach the REM sleep-stage and you will not wake up feeling rested. Memory foam toppers give your body the comfort and support you need to reach REM sleep.
How do memory foam toppers eliminate tossing and turning?
HOW DO MEMORY FOAM TOPPERS ELIMINATE TOSSING AND TURNING?
Contours to your curves
Tossing and turning is your body’s way of seeking the support it needs to allow your muscles to completely relax. Memory foam toppers answer your body’s need for support by contouring to your curves, allowing your muscles to relax. With a memory foam topper you need only get into your favourite sleeping position and let the foam contour around you for a restful night.
HOW CAN MEMORY FOAM RELIEVE ACHES AND PAINS?
Relieves pressure points
A large reason for morning aches and pains can also be explained by the lack of support your body receives from your mattress. A traditional flat mattress forces your spine to assume a position that it does not choose to take, forcing your spine to contour to the shape of your mattress, therefore increasing pressure points on your hips and shoulders. With a memory foam topper your body rests in a supported position, not forcing your spine to contour to the shape of your mattress – your memory foam topper contours to you!
CAN I USE AN ELECTRIC BLANKET?
Because of the heat sensitive nature of memory foam we DO NOT recommend their use. The heat from the blanket also creates an unnatural barrier that reduces the effectiveness of memory foam’s moulding properties. However SlumberTop's super quality high density can take an electric blanket but NEVER MORE THAN ON A LOW SETTING and it must be SWITCHED OFF before retiring.
Please note however that any damage to SlumberTop memory foam products resulting from use of an electric blanket is NOT covered by our warranty.
