This is one of THE best purchases that I have made in a long time. I always believed that a very firm mattress was the best thing for one's posture: wrong. So I decided to check out a additional, softer alternative, and found one in this product. Please don't be put off by the "egg-crate" design - this actually is a heat dispensing design element - plus the actual feel is very comfortable, yet supportive. The cover is an important addition with this bed topper as it wraps around the top and all sides. And go for the 4" depth, as anything less would not be giving you a totally good night's sleep. When I unpacked the topper there was a slight odor, but after a day of airing, there was no noticeable smell at all. And the only negative is that the overall mattress height is substantially increased. A really terrific product and worth every penny.
I have fibromyalgia and arthritis in my back and every trigger point in my body is hyper-sensitive to pressure. I find it very comforting every night I get into bed. I have a 'platform bed' so the mattress is very stable no give. This memory gel is like sleeping on a cloud. It's extremely difficult to sleep in any other bed when away from home. I highly recommend this topper. If you have a sagging mattress I doubt you would get the highest benefit from using the topper. So get a new mattress and purchase this topper, well worth the money!
Getting a little older has caused the hip joints to be rather sensitive and this mattress topper has been the best thing to sleep on in many years. I was about to buy a new mattress (even tho the mattress was not old enough to replace) when I came up on this while looking thro Overstock items. I am so very happy and getting many a good night's sleep on it. It comes with a "slipcover" that is equally pretty and comfy too! Very comfortable and would definitely advise a friend to buy one.
I would love to be able to afford a full size Tempurpedic. However, not having the funds for that, I researched a bunch of foam topper and in the end decided on this one. I have not been disappointed. This is a very comfortable foam topper. I have no problem fall asleep and feel much more rested in the morning and my back feels much better than when I was sleep just on my pillow top mattress.
We love this foam mattress. We have purchase a couple others foam mattress toppers in the past. This one is our favorite. It provides all of the comfort while still allowing us to use our fitted sheets. My husband commented, "It's so comfortable, it's hard to get out of bed in the morning. I am really enjoying this mattress topper." We love it.
This is a great pad. I get extremely hot on regular memory foam pads, but so far it has not been an issue with this one. Place a good mattress cover over it and sleep away, it is both supportive and super comfortable. If you are a side sleeper like me you will appreciate that it doesn't feel like your shoulder is being shoved through your body like on a normal bed. My daughter loves it too and sleeps ,much better on it so I just got her one as well. I weigh about 170 if you're curious, and much prefer a soft bed to a hard one. On hard beds I can hardly sleep and just toss and turn all night. I am always trying to duplicate the comfort of my couch as I never seem to have trouble falling asleep on it, ya know? I also bought the 3" for my Mom's vacation home as the bed I sleep on there is a nightmare it is so uncomfortably firm. The 3" version did the job as well and I woke refreshed each morning. I am still on the fence about which I like better as the 4" seems a little too deep but the 3" is almost not enough. I may try turning the 4" upside down just to test it that way but I think it may get a bit warmer because there would be no air flow through the convultions. Hope this helps.
I unpacked the topper as soon as it arrived. Initially, I thought it was going right back to Overstock. It's wrapped in plastic, and as the topper was unrolled, the end of the topper was hard and appeared ruined. Several areas of the egg crate were mashed down and hardened. After about 30 minutes, the topper had completely and uniformly expanded. It has been used for 2 nights and I am pleased. There is a slight odor, but I believe it will dissipate in time.
I had purchased a mattress that was way to firm. It was an expensive memory foam but I could not sleep on it because it was way to firm. I purchased a 2" mattress topper and it helped but not enough. I then purchased this 4" topper and of course had to buy some deep pocket sheets but this was the answer. I love how soft it feels getting into the bed and sleep comfortable all night. I put the 2" topper on another bed. (Did not use both). I did not notice any smell like some have talked about. No heat issues either
I purchased this topper based on the great reviews -- but we haven't had a comfortable night sleep since we bought it. Memory foam indents to your body's contours. What this means is you create an indentation (or "valley"), where you body is laying. If you turn during the night (like most people), you will be awakened out of sleep because your body can not naturally turn "up hill". It takes a lot of effort to get out the contoured spots and adjust during sleeping. It's super soft, if that's what you're going for.
I read reviews before I bought, found that others had similar health concerns as I. I also bought a new, good price mattress a couple of years ago, traded a couple of times, it was still too hard. I received the 4 inch memory foam mattress, disappointed because it was too soft and flimsy. I tried it anyway, very glad I did, made my legs, hips, and shoulder feel so much better. Thank you very much
I was skeptical about buying a topper but my new mattress was much firmer than I had anticipated and I needed to do something quick. As I read some of the comments and questions, the one that interested me the most was that it actually cools you down as you sleep. So I decided to go ahead and give it a try and boy am I ever glad that I did. I sleep like a baby now! And it does cool things down, rather than retaining heat. That was some well spent money!
we have a sleep number bed, but have been using a memory topper for several years due to a bad hip. we decided to throw out the old topper and get a new one now that the technology has improved. I was a little worried about the smell that other people had mentioned in their review, as I've got a really good sense of smell, and thought it would be a problem.... It is not a strong smell and we put the topper on our bed the first night we had it without waiting to let it 'air out" as others had said to do. We LOVE it. It is very comfortable, in fact I'm on line ordering another one for the guest bed. It is also a lot cooler than the old topper, which is an added benefit as we live in Florida! I would recommend this to anyone looking to add it as a topper to a mattress. I would not recommend it as a stand alone mattress for camping or trailer etc as it is not firm.
My husband and I were needing a new mattress, but we didn't have the money. I opted to buy this gel memory foam topper instead. It had made a WORLD of difference in how we are sleeping. The quality of the topper is excellent, as well as the polysilk cover. It arrived inside the box wrapped tightly (condensed) with shrink wrap. It regained it's shape quickly. The only thing I would warm anyone of is it emits a fairly strong smell the first day or two. Upon unwrapping the topper from its shrink wrap, I placed it on my bed, closed my bedroom door, and opened my windows to help air out the room for a few hours. I love this topper so much that I am considering buying another for our son's bed. We love it!
Bought this because the new mattress set we bought was just to firm and to hot. This did the trick. It's very comfortable to sleep on and much cooler than before. The additional 4 inches did create a couple of problems. 1-Some of the sheets no longer fit. 2-The comforter set no longer fits properly. Have not found a way to fix that problem and will most likely end up going to a spread rather than a comforter to resolve this issue; which is kind of disappointing since it took over 6 months to find the comforter in the colors I wanted. Although some reviews stated problems with odors and having to wait to use, we had none of those issues. Put it on the very day we got it. Very happy with this purchase and after 6 months of use it's showing to be high quality and keeping it's shape.
I purchased this gel memory foam topper to replace my old feather bed topper. I hoped that the 4" firmness would avoid the feather shifting I had with the featherbed, and provide cool, comfortable, gentle support. The mattress is firm, and I have had occasional issues with pressure points, so I hoped the topper would help with that, too. I bought one with the cover to keep dust off and avoid exposure of the foam surface if my sheets shifted at night. Well, there were pros and cons. The good: The topper does provide a very comfortable sleeping surface, and issues I've had with pressure points have disappeared. It's easier to fall asleep now. The not-so-good: It was my understanding that memory foam is supposed to stay flat when you lie on it or shift (especially helpful if you have a partner). Not even remotely! When I lie in the middle of the bed; the sides pull up a bit, like a hammock, lengthwise, from top to bottom. If I sit on the edge of the bed, the topper pulls up from the other side. (Note that the mattress has never moved like this before when I've lied on or sat on it.) Perhaps if I took the cover off, this would decrease the effect, but if that's the case, the cover isn't made to fit correctly. Note that I am using it with the cone side up, but that feels best for me, and the manufacturer's note says it's designed to use either way. Another disappointment: The cover is extremely thin, and undoubtedly will tear soon with routine use. Unlike the manufacturer's description, it doesn't have a zipper closure. It has a wisp-thin (think the thinnest possible mosquito netting) fabric attachment that goes on the bottom of the topper, with elastic to hold it in place. The under-piece is so fragile that it doesn't hold well, and shifts if the mattress moves as you make the bed, and you have to remake that, too. I expect a short life on both. Buy one without the cover and save your cash. All in all -- this is better than the cheap quality foam toppers on the market, but not nearly as good as I'd hoped for a memory foam topper. It does have 2 advantages: it's 4" thick, so there's more cushioning (though it's only 1" of solid, and 3" of cone-shaped foam). And the gel product with the cone side up does seem to keep me cooler than the flat mattress side would -- but right now, we're in below-zero winter. I'll have to wait until summer to see how it really feels. Overall, it's a fairly good topper -- but I overpaid for it. I should have skipped the cover, and paid 25% less.
Our Queen size mattress has a so called "pillow top", but it wasn't that great. After sleeping on the mattress as is for four years, we deiced to get a memory foam topper. We didn't want the old style memory foam, because of the heat they generated when sleeping on it. I went with this style for the gel material that helps dissipate heat while you sleep, and the polysilk cover. This topper has made a huge difference in our sleep. The bed is cool when we get in it and so soft. It literally hugs you while you sleep. This was a very wise purchase and you won't go wrong with it either.
We absolutely love this product!! I was having back trouble and my husband was snoring loudly most of the night. Both ceased after I put this topper on the bed. The overall comfort of the bed improved immensely. I waited way too long to purchase this product.
I have a Calfornia King and it is often difficult to find bedding that fits properly. This topper is amazing! It was actually difficult getting out of bed this morning because the comfort is heavenly! When you receive it take it out of box and lay it flat for a day on living room floor. The slight smell (packaging smell) will disappear. Only suggestion is to purchase sheets one size larger as this item is large and because the foaming is rather thick, the sheets are tight. Great purchase!
The four inch memory foam mattress topper is very comfortable, and its biggest advantage is in making a somewhat uncomfortable mattess feel much, much better. The cover that comes with it, and in which you enclose the topper and the mattress, is a huge benefit -- keeps things from sliding around and makes it much easier to make the bed. Only thing that keeps me from giving it an "excellent" is that I've only been using it for two weeks -- I want it to hold up over time, not get the shape of my body embedded in it, and not get too squishy. So far, so good.
