I purchased this memory foam topper for my elderly mother's bed. She was bedridden for a long period of time and had gone down to 86 lbs from 120 lbs normal weight, so she was pretty boney. During the time of her confinement, I was concerned that she might develop a bedsore. She never did. I owe that to the outstanding cushioning of this topper. So today I get an email from a friend that I had given the topper to. She loves it so much, she asked me where I purchased it. I was happy to tell her Overstock. And happier still that I could look back on my history & find the exact name to pass on to her.
The topper did decrease my back pain. I noticed the difference after the first nights sleep. The wave pattern also kept me from feeling so hot. The off gasing I thought was going to kill me. It gave me headaches, nausea and itchy burning eyes. I tried many sugguestions including leaving my window up all day with the mattress topper uncovered. I even did the granny smith apple on a plate in the center of the topper. The most effective method used was, I bought some of that volcanic rock odor absorber. It didnt take care of the problem completely. Here 6 weeks later I continue to notice the faint smell of chemicals. My grandchildren sleep in my bed on accasion and the continued chemical smell concerns me. I may need to purchase a mattress topper cover for it. One last matter; even though the product helped decrease my back pain, the topper felt to squishy. It made it difficult to get in and out of bed. It made me feel as though I was in a sink hole (some very needed weight loss might eliminate that problem though)LOL!!! I dont think I would by this particular one again. Next time I'll by one with a higher density and larger wave pattern.
It felt like a science experiment to unfold this mattress topper and watch it "grow". It has greatly increased my sleeping comfort even though I have a very good mattress. The chemical smell that was expected with the type of material in the topper was gone within 24 hours and the first night was a good night. I am very happy I purchased this item.
We have a tempurpedic bed that is 10 years old. We haven't LOVED the bed ever since we got it, and the topper I bought 10 years ago was just not working anymore for various reasons. I decided to go with this b/c I thought it would balance the firmness of tempurpedic. It does not balance but only adds to the "memory foam" aches and pains in my body - shoulder and hip pain. I think we are going to have to just get a new bed, but there is no guarantee there either! I thought Tempurpedic was the "answer" for the rest of our lives. I have been sore disappointed. The product IS great - if I had it to re-do, I may have gotten the 2" - we sink down too far in the 3". I hope I have helped somebody find what you need!
Just added this memory foam topper to brand new XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX Frim mattress. The mattress is quite comfortable alone, but this topper provides better-distributed firmness too spine curves. etc. It is a must-have, in my opinion, and the price here is unbeatable.
This foam topper is very good in every way except it smells like mildew ! It arrived in a sealed box. The topper was clearly new and had never been opened, so it was exactly as advertised. But when I rolled it out and put it on the bed it had a TERRIBLE smell. I thought the smell would go away but after almost a week now it hasn't. The smell is still bad enough that it makes it hard to sleep on. I even washed all my sheets, blankets and bedspread with fabric softener to try to make the bed smell better but to no avail. The topper still smells so strong that it makes it distracting to sleep. I sure hope this smell goes away !! I have 4 rooms with King size beds. Each one has a memory foam topper that I purchased for it. I have never had one that smelled like this,
