Q: Can a memory foam topper be used on a drawer divan? Question from Sue Fellows

A: As the topper is placed on top of your existing mattress the type of base
is irrelevant.  However, if you are buying a topper because your mattress
has become uncomfortable then maybe it is time for a change and this should include your base. 
The mattress is the heart of your bed and the part of the purchase you should spend most time and money on. The secret of having a good night’s sleep is the mattress and bed base you choose. Always remember that a ‘bed’ is a mattress and a base working together, you should not consider them in isolation and should ideally always try them together.  We always recommend you buy them together because the two are designed and manufactured to compliment one another in terms of support.  Your mattress may show visible signs of wear and tear but the base will have had equal pressure and strain – it just doesn’t show quite so clearly.
