OMG!!...this is sooooo comfortable..just what I needed for my pretty firm memory foam mattress. It can be reversed to the flat side if you prefer...but I think the bumpy side is the best..I slept like a baby!! I took it out of the box, which came pretty fast to my door..and let it lie on the floor in a spare room for a day..slowly unrolling it over time, as it said to do..the next day it was on my bed..ready to go..no odor at all..I absolutely love it.
I've bought two other 3" memory foam mattress toppers from Overstock that I was ecstatic with, this one unfortunately wasn't as great. It didn't retain it's "plushness" very long and compressed to a flat state similar to one that was several years old. The others I have purchased maintained their thickness and seemed to envelope you years after purchase, unfortunately they were no longer available. This particular wasn't a complete waste, but it definitely wasn't as pleasing as the others. I ended up putting the older one on the bottom, and placing this one one top, and it worked.
I recently moved in with my boyfriend, and couldn't deal with his thin, hard as a board, Ikea mattress. We added this gem on top of it (smooth side up) and it's as if we bought a whole new mattress! You literally sink in. Quality of sleep has greatly improved. It doesn't take a way from the total firmness, which he likes, but made it super comfy. Highly recommend!
Positive: I have a queen size bed and a 7 year old mattress. I was looking for something to add softness and give because I'm a back/side/ stomach sleeper and my mattress has been feeling too firm. This product fits my bed great and it is so comfortable to sleep on. I've had it for almost a month now and t's improved my sleeping. I've read some reviews that say mattress toppers make them hot. I haven't experienced that with this topper. Negative: It has a strong chemical smell that is slowly dissipating. If you are sensitive to smells or have allergies to chemical exposure, (which I am/do) keep your windows open .
Bought this item to improve a 6 year old pillowtop mattress that I was not ready to replace. It worked very well adding extra life to it. I have since replaced the mattress but gave the topper to my daughter. She says it's like sleeping on a cloud.
This is a pure memory foam topper. It still does have a scent. It took one day for it to puff up. I used it that night. I don't have a problem with it being thin or being able to feel the mattress under it. It came wrapped and brand new like stated. I dont notice any extra heat from it. Very comfortable and I would buy again. I have recommended this product to family. If you're looking for pure memory foam, this is it. The best price I could find for a Queen size. I have been using it for almost two months with no change to the integrity of the topper.
The chemical smell coming off this mattress is so strong you can smell it from the back bedroom when you walk into my apartment. When I first got it I didn't sleep on it but had it airing out in my bedroom next to my bed, the smell was so strong I woke up with a sore throat and irritated sinuses. It's been a week and the smell is still very strong. I hope the smell dissipates soon otherwise this was a total waste of money.
I haven't had the opportunity to sleep on this mattress topper yet. We bought it to go over the mattress in our camper. Anything will be an improvement over what we already have. It is not as thick as other memory foam mattresses, but then I paid about half the cost of other memory foam mattresses, so you get what you pay for. For our camper, it is perfect. It was not quite as wide as the existing mattress. It is about 3" shorter all the way around. I don't think that will matter too much as we don't sleep on the edge of the mattress anyway.
I'm living in a dorm and my twin mattress was very uncomfortable. So I got this topper based upon all the reviews I had read. I will tell you I have not slept this good in a long time. I would recommend this to anyone! It's soft but not too soft that it is uncomfortable. Wonderful!
My teen headed to college this fall and we knew the dorm mattresses were very very old with no box spring. This was absolutely perfect, she loves it and if she could, would bring it with her when she comes home on weekends. It's reversible so you can have the egg crate up or the flat side up giving a different feel. Contrary to what I read on other reviews, there was little to no smell, even initially, and she was able to use it as soon as it had "relaxed". We also bought a bed bug protector and used it over the mattress and the topper.
It's only 2 inches and quite nice anyway. I don't know why they exaggerate the inches to 3 inches in their description. I suppose it is their bottom line; people think maybe 3 inches is better? As far as I am concerned, it isn't better. I like these and they probably feel as good as the 3 inch ones do anyway. Can't remember if they were even more expensive than the 2 inch. Buying online can be a nuisance when things like this happen. I wish everyone would call their description shots accurately!
I have been like Goldilocks with beds. In the past year, I have returned 4 mattresses. I couldn't sleep a whole night without excruciating pain. Every morning I would jump out of bed because I couldn't handle it anymore. I have had this topper for two weeks now, and I have woken up less at night, have a lot less pain in the morning, and even got out of bed at 8:45 for the first time in years. I usually am up by 7 on the weekends due to pain, so that's big for me. I sleep on the flat side, haven't tried the wavy side. It did have a strange smell, but it dissipated after 1 week. I highly recommend this to anyone who is suffering at night, It might be just the thing to save your sleep!
