I bought this ventilated mattress foam topper because I have back pain and need good support but I also get hot easily at night and needed a good mattress topper that wouldn't get too hot. When I got it, I it took some work to get it out of the packaging, it was air-vacuumed and cold, but once I got it out of the packaging and laid it out to air out, it fluffed up rather quick. After the the topper had fluffed up and air out, I put it on the bed and once I laid down, I did not want to get up. It is so comfortable!!! Because of the ventilation, it doesn't trap your body heat so it stays nice through the entire night. It has made a huge difference in the quality of sleep I get with this topper. I can't sleep without it now! I highly recommend this!
Like other reviewers, we found that our new very expensive memory foam mattress provided good support but was too firm, not enough pressure point relief. Over the last several years we have tried many memory foam toppers on our memory foam mattress, from 2 to 4 thick, and from 3 lb density to 5 lb density. They all developed permanent indentations from use over time, and the typical hump in the middle of the bed. This problem has also been noted by other reviewers, and is apparently typical of memory foam toppers. Were not heavy people, but this topper has started to do the same thing after a couple of weeks (and it has a nasty smell which has still not gone away). It was perfectly comfortable, and would be good for a guest bedroom, but not for continuous use. A better choice: we read that the Dream Form Green Tea 2-inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper returns to its original size fast, the reviews were very good and it was priced right so we decided to give it a try. WOW! So far no indentations, no middle hump, the ventilation design is nice, and the light green tea scent is very pleasant (and almost disappears with time). Very comfortable, soft yet provides ample back support. And a perfect fit. We cant say enough good things about the Dream Form Green Tea 2-inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper, finally we have found perfect comfort with the perfect topper, get one, you wont be sorry! And as always, Overstock.com delivered quickly, its a great company! Note: if youre heavier than 150 lb you may want to consider the 3 or 4 thickness, which Overstock also carries.
The mattress topper is very dense. At 4 lbs. density it has actually proven to be firmer than I expected or needed. However, the back aches and discomfort I had been suffering from due to my very firm old mattress have gone away and I am sleeping much better. I feel that a lesser density pad would make me even more comfortable, but I am very pleased with this topper. I bought the king size and cut off the excess so it would fit my queen mattress all the way to the edges. Otherwise, the queen size would have been a little smaller than the mattress leaving us with less sleeping area. The price of $xx for a topper of this quality was exceptional as well. Similar toppers sold in stores cost upwards of $200. I highly recommend this topper. One recommendation. If you weigh in the range of 180-200 pounds and have only minor discomfort from your old mattress then you might want to consider a lesser density than this. A 2 or 3 lb. density topper would probably do the job just as well for you.

Aaaaaahhh! I've had the 2" memory foam on the bed for 2 nights. All I have to say is "Good-bye achy lower back"! We put this atop our new Latex foam mattress and it is dreamy to sleep in! We have tried the 4" memory foam and that is way too hard to roll over when your asleep (you need to wake to turn). Now, I don't wake up at night anymore. My husband and I concluded that a good firm mattress and a 2" memory foam is the right combo! The ventilation does a great job at keeping you cooler than the non-ventilated, plus our mattress is ventilated. I would highly recommend this topper if you have aches or wake up stiff and/or your bed is just a little too hard. My husband and I need a good amount of lumbar support for our lower back and this topper does the job well. I was so relieved when I discovered O had a ventilated memory foam! We need the coolness b/c we live in South Florida. Good Buy, good price! Go, O!

We bought a new firm-top mattress because our old pillowtop sagged too much, but we found the new mattress too firm- especially me, because my hips would dig into the mattress and hurt after a while. We had a 4 inch topper before, which I loved but my husband found to soft (he's a stomach sleeper), so we compromised with this 2 inch topper. Be aware that this does have a very minor minty-ish scent, which I wasn't expecting. We let it open up and breathe overnight, and neither of us noticed any scent, so that was good. It is just soft enough that my hips sink in, but my back is supported, and my husband says he likes it, too.
I bought the queen sized topper for a bed that was good, but just need somethig. The topper was ready to go right out of the box. I laid it on the bed and it puffed up immediately and had a nice minty smell that others have mentioned. It has just the right amount of "squishness". It's enough to cushion your hip and shoulders if your a side sleeper like I am; but not so deep that there's no back support for back sleepers. Both my husband and I sleep like babies on it. I'd recommend this memory foam topper to anyone who is looking for a good, comfortable addition to their mattress. One thing i want to mention and that is when you put a mattress pad on the memory foam it's going to make it feel firmer. I started out with a regular quilted pad,then went to a fairly thin mattress pad and then to just a contour sheet because I really like the squishy feeling. Experiment with the mattress pads to get the firmness level right for you.
I wanted a comfortable sleeping surface to use in the back of my truck & intended to use this topper over a blow-up thermarest pad. On my first outing, I forgot the thermarest pad and only had this mattress topper. The topper itself on top of a plywood sheet (without any 'mattress" or other blow-up pad) was more comfortable than many blow-up padd I've used in the past. Very impressed.
The smells lessens after 24 hours of airing out and this is exactly what everyone says about it...best deal for your money. My husband and I bought a new bed. My husband was not comfortable after a month so we decided to try another topper (we have one already). Rather spend $250 more from the mattress company, I decided to purchase this one. It is everything it is advertised and the reviews were spot on! The minty smell is strong at first but if you air it out for 24 hours, it is gone! Very comfortable, not hot and made the bed perfectly comfortable for my hubby!
This is an excellent mattress topper. I would recommend buying it, it will be like having a new mattress without the cost. We have been sleeping on it for almost a week now and it it like sleeping on a cloud. We got the 2 inch mattress cover and it is the perfect size. I had thought I 3-4 inch would be better but this one is fine, and for the cost you cannot beat it
There is nothing about this foam that is dream form. It's the lowest possible quality memory foam out there. The manufacturer claims it does well at re-directing heat.... That's because they just punched a bunch of holes in the foam. If there is ANY other alternative you're looking at TAKE IT. I wouldn't buy Dream Form for my enemies hounds to sleep on.
I just bought a new " plush" mattress set from Serta that was not comfortable from day one. I did my research and found out that for a side sleeper I needed a 3lb. density and 2 inch foam topper to make my mattress into a pillow top. I opened the package and immediately put it on my bed. From the first night this was very comfortable and had no aches when I awoke. The odor that people talk about is not strong (they must have canine sniffers!) and when I slept on my foam pillow I could not even tell it had one (even though I did not give it time to air out). I did however use a mattress cover and fitted sheet over it. They fit perfectly. My only regret is that I did not get a low profile box spring cause now I feel like the "Princess and the Pea" when I climb into my mountain top bed. I researched everywhere, even Amazon, and Overstock had the best price and shipping was only three days. Thanks Overstock!!
I just bought my second topper. Our mattress(which isn't 3 years old) started sagging and i didn't want to buy another 1000.00 mattress and i opted to try this first. It is amazing. you can't even tell it sags anymore.. The only problem i find is i now have to set my alarm clock as i no longer wake up several times during the night.. :) small sacrifice!!!!
The memory foam topper was exactly as pictured and described. The green tea smell is soft and nice, and does eventually disappear. So far so good. Its been 4 months with it and so far it works great. Wish it did come with a protective cover for it, and buying one is about 60.00
