This topper has completely changed the way my husband and I sleep! We have a 5 year-old, king size, no flip, pillowtop mattress that has desperately needed replacement for the past 2 years. Since it is a no-flip, we have developed 'grooves' in the areas where we both normally sleep. Financially we just have not been able to afford a new mattress. We were so desperate for better sleep, that about 6 months ago we flipped it anyway and had been sleeping on the bottom side! When our mattress pad recently had a dryer incident, we came to Overstock to replace it. For the price of a quality mattress pad, we were able to get this foam topper and a standard mattress pad to cover it. The difference was immediate and dramatic. No more arms/hands falling asleep & tingling at night, no more back aches and most importantly sleeping without waking (or sometimes even changing positions!) for the entire night. Yes, some complain about it being a little warm to sleep on and I would agree. We are both rather 'hot' sleepers as well. However, I honestly have to say that the other benefits FAR out weigh a slightly warmer night's sleep. Buy one now, and give one as a gift to someone you know who looks sleepy!!!
I was very nervous because the price was so low and the shipping was free and it was 30 plus pounds but I had the best nights sleep I have ever had. I had a feather bed topper before and tossed and turned. I have a Queen size bed and this topper actually makes my bed feel and look bigger. It is so comfortable, I didn't wake up once and woke up before the alarm clock this morning refreshed. The cheapest topper I found anywhere that is 3 inches thick. It stays in place and I can't wait to go back to bed ha ha. The only thing wrong with it is my cat tip toes on it because he's not used to it yet. This made my mattress feel better than brand new. I would highly recommend this product !!!!
I a very pleased with this matress topper. I find it very comfortable and am sleeping better. I aired it out as instructed and I don't notice any odors. I like that it has the "bumps" that seem to make it cooler. I think you could use it the other way (smooth side up) if desired. I tried a thinner topper before and there is a BIG difference between the inexpensive 2" topper I bought locally and this 3" topper. It feels so much softer and I don't feel like I compress it all the way. My hips and shoulders don't hurt from sleeping anymore. The only problem I have is that my older sheets are not deep enough so I had to use my old elastic corner straps to keep them on. I don't yet know how it will perform over a long period of time but it's looking good...
Great value. This topper arrived as described. It was inexpensive relative to some of the alternatives, and our king-sized bed is much, much more comfortable with the topper. Many other commenters mentioned the odor. We slept on ours the first night out of the box, and there was a mild odor; however, it was completely unnoticeable by th 3rd night. We'd definitely recommend it.
This mattress topped is very comfortable. It has made a big difference in the way I feel when I wake up. My regular mattress is firm and caused me a lot of back pain. My back no longer hurts because of this product. It took about one week for the smell to disappear. Definitely worth more than I paid.
I got my 3" memory foam topper for a new mattress that seemed to be quite firm. The topper unwrapped easily, and did have a smell to it, as all memory foam products do. We let it air out opened up for a day and then used it with no odor issues after that. The topper is slightly larger than our mattress but not so much that I would attempt to cut it down. So far it holds it shape very well and does what I thought- it softens my firm mattress. My husband is still not sure he likes sinking down into the foam but we haven't taken it off yet, so he must be getting used to it. So before you pass judgement, try it at least a week. I have extra deep pocket sheets so they easily fit over the whole thing. The only con I can say is that it makes my already tall bed 3 inches taller so I have a little bit of a hard time hopping up into bed. If I had thought about that I may have gone with a 2 inch.
We bougt this topper for our 10 year old queen bed. We already had a memory foam topper that we had bought somewhere else, but it was well worn. My husband had been complaining of soreness and back pain for many months. He has selpt soundly with this topper every night since it arrived. It is a great value and so comfortable.
I was skeptical at first. But after sleeping on it for awhile I have to say I love it. It is so soft and really does conform to your body and the next day it "springs Back". I use it with the bumpy side up, but I also use a mattress cover on top of it just to keep it clean. I am so happy I made this purchase plus I got a fantastic deal on it. So it's a winner all the way around.
I bought the California King size. It is about 4' too small side to side. Also, this pad is made of the egg crate type of foam. It is 3" thick from the base to the tip of one of the points. But not really 3" thick. I am disappointed in this purchase. Can't even return it, because just try to compress it to get it back in the box! Anyway, there are other kinds of memory pads made by this company of flat foam, which might be better.
I am very disappointed with this mattress topper. Many of the reviews I read said that many people weren't bothered by the smell and didn't even have to air it out. I don't know how that is possible, as the foam is smashed completely flat and the directions say it takes three days for the foam to recover. My issue is not that I have to air this out, or the smell. Instead, the mattress topper is filthy and loaded with nasty dead bugs in the wrapping. I wouldn't even air this out in my garage, let alone in my house. And I pray that the bugs in the wrapping are not bed bugs. I would never put this thing near my bed. I am sending this back. I did buy a mattress pad and I am completely satisfied with it, and I will continue to buy from Overstock.com, but probably not bedding.
I have recommended this product to several friends. I have had moderate to severe neck and back pain for over 33 yrs. Although it hasn't done much for the neck, it has been extremely helpful for mid and lower back. Instead of mayby 2-3 hours of sleep tops. I know sleep 4-6 hours straight without any pain.
I absolutely love a foam topper and have in the past given it 5 stars for being so comfortable. I can't live without a foam topper on my mattress. This is my second one and this one seems to have fallen apart worse than the first one I purchased. The money is not all that much and you truly do get what you pay for. The egg crate foam is not encased in anything and it has split in many places. It didn't last long at all and I do not want to buy any more of these kinds. They just don't hold up at all. But it is like being on a cloud sleeping and my backaches are mostly gone. It was tremendous for my bad back and I highly recommend toppers such as these. I just wish they were better made. I'm thinking of buying a new one that has the gel inside the foam. Perhaps they hold up better in the long run.
We purchased this mattress topper to extend the life of an old bed. IT WORKED! We were able to put it on the bed within a couple of hours of opening it, and slept on it right away. BEST SLEEP EVER! It felt like we had a brand new bed, and I haven't slept so well in years!
I bought this after realizing that my guest room mattress was long overdue for replacement and did not want to spend several hundred dollars on that. My daughter is using that room and has not stopped singing the praises of the ultimate comfort she now experiences sleeping on it. My 84 year old father came to visit and woke the first morning saying he can't remember sleeping so well and it had been years since he woke without back pain. Both my father and daughter could not order one fast enough for their own homes! DO buy some deep pocket sheets too, my old ones will not fit over the now very cushy bed topper.
