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 http://www.overstock.com 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?). :)
