Stop looking for the best mattress topper, Australia!

What is the best mattress topper? Australia, it’s time to ask a different question.

Friends, it’s time to stop searching for “latex mattress topper Australia”. Kindly refrain from typing “memory foam mattress topper Australia”. Seriously, we have a better solution. 

But before we can introduce our epic, world-class solution, let’s cover some of the basics…

What is a mattress topper?

A mattress topper is a thick, cushioned removable layer that sits on top of your existing mattress. This is not to be confused with a mattress pad, a thin hygiene layer popped on top of the mattress to protect it from dust mites, bacteria and moisture. 

What does a mattress topper do?

You’re a Koala fan, so you’re obviously a logical and great-looking person. Now that we know what a mattress topper is, the next logical question is “Why do I need a mattress topper?”. 

When searching for the best mattress topper, Australians are shopping for two reasons:

☝️ to increase comfort and/or 

✌️ extend the life of their existing mattress. 

Mattress toppers are generally thick and pudgy, so, when placed on top of your mattress, they can help soften the firmness and even out any bumps, sagging or divots caused by years of use or damage. 

This means you can squeeze a little more life out of your mattress by popping a mattress topper on top. If you’re relying on a mattress topper to hide a multitude of sins, it might be worth considering if it’s time to replace your mattress. 

Looking for the best firm mattress, Australia?

Sure, buying the best mattress topper is great if you’re looking to soften your mattress… but what if you’re searching for the best firm mattress, Australia? Here’s where our solution comes to play. 

Our range of mattresses include… wait for it… an in-built, flippable firmness layer; so you can choose between Medium-Firm and Firm. And change your mind and flip it back over again! 

This flippable firmness layer cuts out the middleman, meaning you won’t need to search for Australia’s best mattress topper because it’s already built into your Koala mattress

We recommend using the Medium-Firm side for the first week as you settle into sleeping on your Koala mattress, but if you know you prefer a firmer mattress, flip it straight to the Firm side. 

Not sure what kind of mattress you like? We created a quiz to help you out, gumnut. 

What is a mattress pad?

So we’ve got the plushness of a mattress topper covered off with our in-built flippable firmness layer, but what about the hygienic protection of a mattress pad? 

Hold our beer. 

Not only were our Koala Mattress, Calm As Mattress and Soul Mate Mattress designed with breathability in mind (more breathability = more hygienic); but the mattresses themselves include antimicrobial additives which assist in preventing the conditions that those pesky microscopic monsters love. 

TL;DR: we’ve made the mattress pad redundant by weaving antimicrobial goodness all the way through our mattresses. Impressive, we know.
