After 25+ years of sleeping on the same droopy, warn mattress (literally the one I took with me after I graduated from high school and moved out of my parent's house), I purchased a nice, new firm set about 3 years ago thinking it would be wonderful. We had a 90-day right to return but I opted to keep the new set convinced the mattress just needed a little more time to "break in." Unfortunately, I apparently chose a mattress that was a little TOO firm as it hasn't gotten much (I'd even dare to say ANY) softer over the past few years. The bed is not horrible, it's just VERY firm, which is exactly what I thought I wanted and, therefore, bought. Live and learn, I guess. So, I've learned to sleep in positions that result in the least amount of body ache the next morning hoping the mattress is getting an infinitesimal bit softer with every passing night and maybe by the time I retire - in another 20 years or so - I'll have a comfortable mattress to sleep on. Sigh... Now, I've heard and seen mattress toppers all over the place and honestly didn't think they would really make a difference, or assumed they would be too soft. So, lo and behold was I surprised when my husband and I won a silent auction that included a 2-night stay in a B&B cottage in Door County, WI and the bed in that cottage turned out to be the most comfortable bed I've ever laid on resulting in the two most restful nights of sleep I've had in probably 20 years. After the first night, I just felt refreshed. After the second night it dawned on me WHY I felt so refreshed and I had to look and see what kind of mattress it was. To my surprise it was a middle of the road brand mattress set with a squishy upside down egg-carton type mattress topper. Of course, as soon as I got home I started scouring the internet and found that, to my dismay, most of the toppers are solid (no egg-carton side) and much more expensive than I anticipated. After much searching I came across this one and, after seeing so many positive reviews, decided to take a chance. The price was great ($90) compared to others I had looked at and I figured it certainly wouldn't make my bed less comfortable so I didn't have much to lose. OMG, I am so glad I got this! I purchased it 10/11/15, received it about 3 days later, so it was on my bed by mid-October. And I noticed the difference immediately. I can now sleep on my stomach again - YAY! I now wake up feeling refreshed every morning and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! After about a month I mentioned to my husband how much better I felt and he just looked at me and said, "Yeah, now that you mention it, I don't hurt every morning anymore." All in all, one of the best things I've spent $100 on in the entire house. I highly recommend this!!
We started with this topper on our full size (guest) bed....our company would arise well rested and spoke of having "the best sleep, ever". Needless to say, this topper is on all our beds now. Great way to save money on a new mattress, and our guests are correct. Best sleep ever!!
I have used this for years on top of on old super firm mattress. It allowed me to get a few more years out of the mattress in much improved comfort. It is very comfortable, does not make you too hot, and improved my sleep. I have a new mattress now, but I still keep this around in the guest bedroom.
