I used to prefer an extra firm traditional bed. However, I am now 50 years old, and I can no longer sleep on such a bed.I continually had backaches, and I could never sleep for more than a few hours at a time. I looked at the specialty beds (Tempurpedic and Sleep Number), but both of these beds were extremely expensive.I then discovered the Serta memory foam matress topper. That, plus the down alternative matress topper cover and two memory foam pillows, would be far less than those other two beds. I figured it was worth a shot.I read the reviews, and people recommended that I get a matress topper which was too big, and then trim it to size. They were right, I got the California King, to go on a queen-size bed. It was exactly the right length, but about a foot too wide. (It should have been both too long and too wide.) I trimmed it, and then put it into the matress topper cover (it was not easy to trim, being so thick).The down alternative matress topper cover actually added some softness to the matress topper.I now sleep much better than before. I can sleep for many hours now, without waking up.There is an odor associated with the matress topper. That is the only negative. The odor fades with time. The matress topper cover gives you some protection from the odor and from whatever chemical is causing it.I highly recommend the Serta Ultimate Four-inch Matress Topper. Especially if you don't have much money. In fact, I'll bet it would be great if you put it on the floor, with no bed under it, but I haven't yet tested it in that way.

The memory foam topper was exactly as described and it fit our queen bed nicely. Once released from the plastic wrap it was delivered in, the topper took about 20 hours to fully expand to its normal size. The density of the foam was heavy enough to provide support and cradle your body but not anywhere near as firm as the high end memory foam mattresses offered at the specialty bedding stores. I have purchased thinner memory foam gel mattress toppers in the past for use the college dorms and knew what to expect when purchasing this item, but I will tell you that I prefer this non gel topper over the ones that I have previously purchased. The two inches of thickness was just right and the sheets that we already had still fit.

I purchased this as a topper for a futon in my college son's bedroom at home after he took his bed to college. He had complained that the futon was not comfortable enough to sleep on when he came home on the weekends, so I searched ads, department and specialty stores, and websites to see what was available. I found this Slumber Solutions 5.5 inch Memory Foam & Fiber Mattress Topper on sale on Overstock.com, so I ordered it. My son loves it...my married daughter who visited loves it...I love it. It is so comfortable to rest and sleep upon. In fact, my son told me this week that he is considering bringing his bed back home and taking the futon with the mattress topper back to school, where he spends the majority of his time.

Ten years of feeling like I just can't get comfortable enough to sleep. Ten years of my body aching after laying in one position for more than 10 minutes. Last night I went to sleep and stayed asleep for 6 hours!!! 6 HOURS!!! No pain pill or sleeping pill ever did that for me. All it took was an inexpensive memory foam pad over my mattress!!! Now I don't have to pay over $1000 for the specialty mattress that my doctor recommended. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As my wife observes, If three inches are good, four are even better. But ignore all the gripes about smell, size, shape, and on and on. I have bought three Serta toppers over the past five years and they all perform perfectly. If you want perfection go down to the specialty mattress store and spend 15x what one of these will set you back--if you can sleep after that, you could sleep on rocks. For the rest of you, buy yourself a mattress body bag for five bucks, then put a mattress cover over the result and you will be happy.
Have you ever stayed up too late just because your bed didn't seem very inviting? Is the bedding in your dreams better than the place where you do the dreaming? A comfortable bed is easier to have than you may expect. With the right pieces, you can make your bedding more inviting -- so you'll be excited to go to bed.
