I have slept so much better since using this Gel Topper. I wake up with much less back pain. I should mention that I have an older 2" foam pad that I still use under the gel foam topper. I was waking up numerous times during the night, now only once or twice to use the bathroom. I had no problems with any smells as others have mentioned.
I am so pleased with the quality and comfort of this mattress cover. It fit our king mattress perfectly and stays in place. The sheets that I already had still fit the bed which was a plus. I thought I might need deep pocket sheets. My husband was afraid it might be hot since it is soft but not at all. It also is good for a stiff back in the morning.
After some debate between getting the 3lb and 4lb mattress toppers I decided to go with 4lb one since I was looking for a slightly firmer one. While its comfortable, its also MUCH softer and squishier than I expected. I'm only about 120 lbs but I felt like I sink right through, can't imagine what the 3lb density one must be like. I would recommend those looking for a firmer pad to go with the 5lb density.
3 inches was the perfect height though and contrary to some other reviews I read, I bought the full size and it fitted my full size mattress perfectly (no gaps around the edges) I couldn't really sleep on it for the first few days because of how strong the smell was but two weeks later, it is only really noticeable if I smell the mattress pad directly. Overall, I'd recommend only if you're looking for a super soft foam pad!
