A top mattress protects the mattress against dust, filth and perspiration, through which it increases the lifespan of the bed. A top mattress made of down and feathers, like the Original Featherbed, is the finishing touch of you bed and it offers just that extra layer of sensation that you also experience in luxury hotels. It’s like you’re sleeping on a cloud. Furthermore it provides for extra softness and comfort for the lighter body parts and it strengthens the characteristics of your mattress. The annoying gap (pont d’amour) between two single mattresses will also be less noticeable.
