I was looking to add comfort to my mattress that was too firm. I first ordered a memory foam topper that included a pillow top from overstock and my back was hurting every morning so back it went. Than I bought a topper from **** that really offered very little cushon at all and back it went. I did alot of research to try and find a quality product that would work for me. I looked at feather beds and read that they required alot of maintenance and that many leaked feathers and I ruled them out. Finally I found this Candice Olson Fiber bed. It did not have any reviews and I could barely find any information on it. I found that Candice Olson was a designer with an excellent reputation and most of her products were available at ****, though not this fiber bed. My mom raved about her and said her products line was very high end. I took the plunge and ordered this and have been thrilled after using this for more thatn 2 weeks. It is made from quality matereials and has a nice heay weight to it, although you will not be able to wash this at home. It also comes with fiber gels, not just polyester puffs that gives it a feather bed feel. I would highly recommend this fiber bed, take it from someone who spent alot of time finding the perfect topper...
I bought this for my Sister, who has a terrible mattress but can't afford a new one right now. She put this on the bed and said she had a good night's sleep for the first time in a very long time. She said she didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. Sounds like a good one.
We had recently purchased a new mattress that was a little firm for me and I was having trouble sleeping and waking up sore. My husband purchased this topper and it has made a world of difference. Bed is perfect!!! I sleep like a baby and I am no longer waking up with aches and pains. Highly, Highly, Highly recommend this topper.
After sleeping on a waterbed for 30 years we replaced it with a very expensive mattress. After a couple of weeks my lower back hurt every day. I had a smaller pollyfill mattress topper that we tried and it helped some so ordered a feather topper. It made my back worse. I decided to try this. It is great. No more back pain almost immediately. I could not believe it!!
Just got this and we do love it. However; I followed the adivce of a reviewer and sized up to a king for our queen bed. The queen size would have been plenty big. I was worried that it would be skimpy- but the king is REALLY big. It hangs off each side about 4 inches and makes the bed look like an old fashioned "feather bed"!!! I'm keeping it simply because I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning and waiting for another one. All that to say - it's really soft and fluffy. We had bought a expensive Tempurpedic mattress set in July for my bad back and it is just too firm. This really helps and I'm so glad I found it - super luxurious!
We bought a memory foam mattress months ago and began losing sleep because it was too hard and didn't breathe well. So, I got this thing and I'm cooler at night and it compensated for the hardness of the memory foam bed - which we love, it just needed a pillow top... The kids go jump in our bed when were not looking because it is just that good.
This fiber bed adds a couple inches of loft and softness to a firm mattress. The king size fit my mattress perfectly length and width-wise, and it doesn't shift thanks to the way it fits over the mattress like a fitted sheet. My husband thought it was a little too soft the first two nights, but now he is used to it and loves it. My toddler clamors to sleep with us and loves to watch her Disney movies on our bed. Haven't tried to wash it yet so I can't speak to how it holds up in the laundry, but you would definitely need an oversized machine to handle this.
After combining households two years ago, my sweetie complained that my pillow top mattress was too soft. I finally gave in and we switched back to his firm mattress. Horrible! I'd sleep soundly until about midnight, but after that I just could not get comfortable, so I tossed and turned the rest of the night. Candice's fiber bed mattress top was the last resort before going out and attempting to find new mattresses that we both could live with (or rather, sleep on). The firmness is still there, but there's also a cloud of softness on which to rest my weary, aging bones. My sweetie is sleeping well also, so we are both happy now. Thanks Candice!
This mattress topper has been a life saver! Highly recommended for sleepers who prefer a soft, cool feel! Shipped fast, fluffed right up from the packaging, and a GREAT value over purchasing a brand new bed! We would definitely buy it again!
I purchased this product due to the good reviews on the website. I previously owned a product similar to the product description from another brand, that had become lumpy due to repeated washings. I would have returned this product when I first felt it, but it comes compressed in shrink wrap, so you can not feel it until it is fully opened and expanded. Under Overstocks policies you are only entitled to a partial credit if the product is opened, which for all I know that could mean I would spend more shipping it back than I would be refunded. So, I decided to give it a try. To my dismay this product feels just as lumpy as my old one I was trying to replace, and I wake up with the same shoulder pain as if I don't use the topper, save without the topper I don't wake up every few hours. I feel none gel fiber in this topper at all it feels like the cheap *** polyfill topper I purchased for my guest room. I checked the tags to see if maybe I received the wrong item, there is no reference on the product to Candace Olsen, just states distributed by a company called *******, but has same fabric pattern and looks to picture in product offering. I would not recommend this product to anyone friend or foe.
Purchased the fiber bed to assist with back and side sleeping. This improved our sleep and decreased morning back pain AND prevented us from purchasing another new mattress. We use this with our memory foam matteress that was just too hard. Great product for the price
I bought this to try to find middle ground between my partner, a side sleeper who likes a super soft mattress because he has circulation problems in his arms, and me, a back sleeper who prefers a very firm sleeping surface. We had originally put a memory foam topper on my wonderful, extra firm mattress, which was way too mushy for me (did I mention that my extra-firm mattress was wonderful?). And truly, I hate foam--it's hot, very artificial and hospital-y feeling, and kind of creepy the way it molds around one's body. On a business trip I happened to get a hotel room that had a nice faux-down topper and it seemed a much better solution to the memory foam. I bought this hoping it would be similar and it is. Hooray! I don't mind the softness (though I'd still prefer my mattress sans topper) because I can still benefit from the support of my mattress, and my partner is comfortable, without any complaints of his arms losing proper circulation when he sleeps on his side. The filling does tend to shift a bit, but we rotate the pad when we change the sheets and it fluffs up well enough. The fabric seems to be high quality, and in general it is well made. All in all a good purchase.
I needed a soft topper for our very hard mattress. I read the reviews and thought I'd take a chance on this one. It seemed to be a good value, and the alternative fiber was attractive since I'm allergic to feathers. I believe the packaging should be done differently. They suck all of the air out of the bag that holds the bed. Once you unwrap it, it takes a good while for it to fully "inflate" (for lack of a better term). You'll notice the bed has pockets that hold the fiber. The fiber, unfortunately, doesn't lay flat. It was still lumpy despite being laid out for more than a week. I tried to manipulate the fibers to lay flat to no avail. It is poorly designed and poorly packaged. And that's a shame really, because the fiber itself is actually very soft. But even the softest fiber won't be comfortable if it's wadded up under you. I returned it to Overstock.
I used this to make my very firm bed a little softer and more plush. It is very comfortable and my boyfriend and I love it! The only con is how warm it can be, it seems to kind of trap your body heat. It will be nice in the winter, but it's a little annoying in the summer.
This is very comfortable! I actually bought because a new set of sheets was just a bit too big for my pillow top queen bed. Now I wish I had purchased one long ago! I have arthritis in my arm and hip and this just cuddles me so I sleep better.
