We wanted to add a memory foam topper for greater comfort for my husband who has back problems but did not want the topper to cause sweating which is also a problem for my husband. This topper has been great. It provides added comfort without causing sweating. We highly recommend it. If a slightly thicker one had been available, we would have chosed that, but this one has worked very well.
I decided on memory foam after a friend got a 2 inch topper and it was amazing. When I did some research on it, I found that people frequently complain of it making them hot at night. So I thought the ventilated one would be a good idea for me since I am always hot anyway. It's comfy, yes, but I wake up in the middle of the night because it seems that because the holes are so big (they're about the size of a finger) they seem to make the spots that hold the most body weight separate in a way and leave a noticeable dip. I had expected the holes to be much smaller since logically it doesn't make sense for them to be so big. Other than that it's pretty comfy.
I have chronic neck and back pain and asked for this for christmas. I got it christmas eve and slept on it that night. It was so comfortable i didn't want to get out of bed christmas morning. I saw results within the first night and still continue to wake up refreshed and with less pain. It's such a better sleep and it really does keep you cool like it says. I love it and i will forever have one. And it didn't smell when i opened it like others. It fit perfect to my bed and was sleeping on it 10 minutes after taking it out of the box.
I mistakenly thought that ventilated meant there were holes in the pad as I have another one with holes. This one is ribbed so be sure you realize that. I still am pleased and find the thickness good. I have bad hi ps and I cannot sleep on any beds without a memory foan topper now - You don't need a new mattress just the topper. Don't spend thousands on a new bed.
Honestly, I love this thing. I rarely wake up, and when I do I'm in the same position as when I went to sleep usually. No pressure points, like I had with my feather topper. No more numb hands or arms, just a really good sleep. my topper was just the right size, it reached almost to the edges of my king size bed, leaving just the right amount of space for my mattress pad and my sheets. When I opened it, it was almost to the 2 inches. I did let it air out for a couple of days, although the order was very minimal. Overall I could not be happier. I think the 2 inch topper is just right if you just need to add comfort to your bed, I also think getting the ventilated one was a good idea because I don't like being hot when I sleep. I don't feel any extra heat at all with this topper. Obviously I can't speak to the lifespan of the topper since I've only had it about a month, but honestly I would be willing to buy one every year if I had to. On a side note, I have a chronic hip and lower back problem. This has helped.
This is- and remains, four years later- the best night's sleep I've ever gotten. I got this mattress pad in a twin size when I moved into my college dorm because let's face it, all college beds suck, and it made a world of difference! Even more comfortable than my bed at home- and now that I'm leaving college and will have a real-size bed again, I'm sad that I'll have to leave it behind! All my friends agree that my bed was the comfiest ever- so much so that I often had trouble getting them to leave after hanging out (my dorm didn't have a couch, so we ended up sitting there a lot). -__- The only downside is that it seems to collect hair- strands will get woven into the foam some how and you can't really get them out. Not a problem unless you take the sheet off, though.
My husband & I really like this topper. Our mattress is really firm & needed something to soften it up a little. It might be just a hint too thick but it is pretty good. When we pulled it out of the box, we thought there was no way it would be 2 inches but it is. As others have said, it covers the entire king mattress. Maybe even a slight wider. You shouldn't worry that it will be short or narrow because it fits perfectly. We are glad we made this purchase & would recommend it to anyone who is looking to soften their mattress.
Absolutely the best mattress topper we have ever had. We are in FL and it is cooler than any one we have used previously. It is also a bit firmer than other memory foams we have used and didnt like the others due to the fact you always were in a 'hole' made by your body. This is perfect for comfort and support. In fact, we love it so much I have ordered another to keep just in case I cant find the identical one when the original one needs to be replaced. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My boyfriend and I decided to get a foam mattress topper because he rubs his feet together to fall asleep and it sort of drives me crazy. So we went for the topper to see if it would cut down on the movement and IT DID! Great product especially for the price. Love it:)
