Memory foam or egg crate table pad?

I am interested in adding some extra comfort to my massage table.<br>It has 3 inch foam, but is still very firm.  I don't know if it is because it is new and it will soften some with time, or it is just the way it is made.  I find it to be uncomfortable and would like to add something to make it softer.<br><br>What are your opinions on table toppers?<br><br>Are memory foam toppers worth the money?<br>Are the egg crate type good to use?<br><br>

I have memory foam on my table and 9 times out of 10 people comment on how comfy it is.  It is far more comfortable than egg crate.  But of course far more expensive too.  check out for good deals on memory foam.  I use a table warmer under it and it makes the heat a bit more subtle and nice - people even appreciated in the summer!

All these years later, I still prefer egg crate to memory foam on a regular massage table. I usually use 2-3 pieces stacked on top of each other and contained on the top of the table with a mattress pad.

That said, I also have a very hard electric lift Rolfing table by Hill. That table is so hard that I decided to use a partial memory foam topper, along with 2 layers of egg crate. It seemed to help. Now the table is at the proper cushiness I like it. Not too soft and not too hard (was that like the bears, goldilocks or the princess and the pea?). :)
