I have an old but sound mattress and I'm thinking about getting a memory foam topper. Normally I'm good at making a choice, however I've read so many different things about memory foam toppers that I'm at a loss as to what to do. Please help me chose what to do.

I currently have a mattress that I've owned for over 9 years and it was second hand when I got it (though it was still excellent quality), it's still sound and doesn't dip at all. The mattress is on a wooden slats. Since January I've had hip pain and it's now in both hip. When I first get into bed my hip hurts when I lie on it, then that pain goes away as I get used to lying down. My hips are stiff/sore when I get up after sleeping or sitting down for a while. I thought that a memory foam topper might be the way to go.
However I've not got much of a budget so my choices are limited. I've also read many different reviews and opinions about them. I don't want to waste the money I have on something that will be no good in a few months. I've read about different depths, densities etc. So I was wondering if I could have other peoples experiences with mattress toppers and your opinions on some of the different ones I've found.
4" 40kg topper
Would any of those be suitable?
