Like so many Americans, my husband and I have been overweight most of our lives. Along with genetics and traumatic injuries, this has led to us both being partially disabled. I am currently healing from double knee surgery and can find comfort sleeping despite having to keep still with my legs elevated. Let me assure you; This is the BEST sleeping purchase for back problems, joint problems (such as arthritis) or even over sensitive nervous system response problems that cause head to toe pain sensations. While it is not exactly the same as a high quality solid memory foam bed, it is a close competitor and MUCH more affordable! We have had two of these 4" Serta toppers and won't own a bed with out one. Our first was a queen traditional mattress (we always buy the Cali King topper and cut to fit) that was old, well used and not particularly supportive anymore. Using this topper provide my husband relief after his first lower back injury and allowed me to sleep through the night without the joint discomfort I was used to. After that mattress saw its end, we bought a very firm (max coiled) traditional king mattress set. This topper has made our bed heaven! We are truly spoiled. You will not regret this purchase! I personally promise! Some key points: This is high quality, high density, Visco elastic memory foam in a solid piece. It is VERY heavy in weight (you will need help positioning it) and it is critical that you follow the instructions (more info below on that). Some additional need to knows: The foam WILL have an odor. It is not over powering and eventually "airs out". This is normal because it is 100% synthetic (think of chemistry class). Keep that in mind when purchasing but don't let it hinder you because the odor does not last and many over react (my son and I have serious allergies & respiratory problems and it hasn't bothered us a bit). Also, if you do not follow the instructions for opening when new and using this product it will fail and be your fault. Since it is a product with MEMORY is it critical that you let it unroll on its own and are gentle when placing it on the bed. NEVER force it open or force it to bounce back, say when you are trying to make your bed immediately after getting up. It can lose its memory. Because this product responds to temperature, the corners that never feel body heat will eventually get dark and possibly feel "crusty". This is after YEARS of use and due to being in a controlled environment. If you keep your house upwards of 80 degrees this will never be an issue but if you're like us and use your A/C lower than 70 degrees you will have some discoloration. It does NOT affect product performance however. We kept our queen topper for 5 years and when we gave the topper to my sister for her guest bed, it was still like new aside from the very corners. Due to the temperature response you will get warmer than normal. It is NORMAL for ALL memory foam toppers! The name brand designer therapeutic beds do the SAME thing (unless using the new "cooling gel" formulas to help). The best way to get comfortable if you're hot at night is to A.) keep a fan running or A/C low or B.) buy a high quality "cooling" style mattress pad cover. For both our queen and king we purchased a deep pocket temperature controlling cover from Overstock. This helped massively although it can slightly affect how much the foam 'responds' to your body... not significant though. Using all cotton sheets will additionally help with heat issues. Your body temperature gets momentarily trapped in the foam and causes you to feel warmer, this is how the product knows to shape to your body. Trapping heat means the product is doing its job. In my book it is not an issue because I'll take a good nights rest with a higher electric bill (for keeping A/C lower) over waking up crying in pain and never sleeping well. In the end, it depends on what quality sleep is worth to you personally. Sorry for writing a book here but I feel another educated positive review from someone who has spent thousands of dollars on beds and toppers and has serious aches and pains deserved to be out there. Do not waste your time with anything lower than 3" topper (research shows any lower than that can't actually absorb enough to bring serious relief) or any other brand. I have tried many different types and brands. Overstock and Serta are offering a top of the line product for a great price. If you have trouble finding sheets to fit with the 4" topper, just go to ***. They offer limited colors in 20-22" extra deep pocket that will fit perfectly with this product on top of a standard or pillow top mattress of 16-18" depth. We have wasted money on "deep pocket" that end up being only 18" deep. This is the only real issue with our new bed. But again, it is worth sleeping soundly.

After being tested for allergies, I found out that I was allergic to dusk mites. In addition, I have a dog that likes to sleep on my bed. I wanted to protect my much-loved comforter (and me), so I took a chance on this comforter cover. I was very pleased with my purchase. It's well-made, very good quality, and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend it. (If you have allergies or if you are just disgusted by the knowledge that you are sleeping with dust mites, I would also recommend that you put on a duvet cover over the encasing that you wash regularly in hot water.)

I love that this cover is 100% cotton. I washed it before I put it on. Seems like it will hold up well, It should for the price. It is very thick and seems sturdy. But Overstock does give a great price on it. I did a lot of research and it seems like this was the only one that was 100% cotton and would protect against dust mites and bed bugs. It was expensive but my organic cotton mattress was a huge investment so I want to protect it. Now I just have to find something to make the mattress waterproof or water resistant to protect against potential accidents my 3 children might have. I also got the Allergy Controll pillow covers and they seem great so far. I am only giving 4 stars because it was soooo expensive.

I have purchased the soft, and hard versions of this pillow and both did not have the neck comfort I expected. This pillow seems almost on the soft side and has more support than the soft pillow previously purchased. Overall it is comfortable and I use the pillow mostly to control allergies. Good product. It is hard to judge a pillow by ordering it on line, but this is a keeper.

I finally found a pillow that does not push my head in odd positions causing muscle strain. This purchase was a damn good deal for the price.

We just got an elegant, lightweight down duvet and loved sleeping under it. It's very lightweight and warm. Unfortunately, my down allergies bothered me and I'd feel congested and have a sinus headache when I woke up, even though the duvet was hypo-allergenic. Since we've been using this cover on the duvet, I've had no more allergic reactions. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it has made the duvet quite a bit heavier. It's no longer like sleeping under a warm cloud, however it keeps my headaches away, so it's a trade I'm willing to make.

Allergy Control makes fabulous bed casings and pillow casings for allergy sufferers. I have been purchasing their products for years. This is the first time I have purchased the Cotton Performance Pillow Encasing. The others I have purchases were not all cotton. It is a wonderful product, as it breathes, yet still provides protection from mites and bed bugs. I will be switching all my pillow encasings to the Cotton Performance!

I finally found the right comforter! I live in California bay area and was looking for a warm, light weight comforter. My choice was between a down or the down alternative. After many months of reading O reviews between these products, I found this all-season down alternative comforter was best for ME. It is light weight and not overly heavy compared to a down. It is hypoallgergenic which helps to control my start on allergy. The baffle box design is filled and evenly spread that prevents shifting thus providing great warmth. It lays well on my eastern king size bed and actually large enough to spill over the bed (perfect for the husband blanket hogger). The best part is that I can throw it in the wash without having to have it dry clean. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.
If you've been diagnosed with indoor allergies, your bedding is a good place to begin protecting yourself. You'll spend about a third of your life asleep, so if you suffer from allergies, it's crucial to make sure the bedroom is a safe haven. Whether you have trouble with dust mites or animal dander, you can make your bed an allergen-free zone with anti-allergen bedding and a bit of housekeeping. Fight Allergens in the Bedroom: Know the common allergens: Dust mites, tiny insects that are invisible to the human eye, are a major offender when it comes to bedroom allergens. Read More
