I've had this topper for about five months. The first three months it was awesome; felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. However, after that it started losing its form and causing me back problems. Although it does work, it's not worth what you pay for only three months of use
I bought this for my husband and myself. It is fantastic.Our old mattress was about 7 years old and this was a great cheap fix. It came at a perfect time (right when I broke 7 ribs) I go to bed before my husband and he doesn't wake me anymore when he gets in, the bed just doesn't move. I am short so it is funny seeing me hop into bed because it is very high. You need two people to carry it to the bedroom, but it is worth it. You also need deep pocket sheets, but they are easy to find. I sleep very well and have no aches or pains when I wake up.
I love this topper! I no longer have pain in my joints when I inadvertently roll on my sides! I read reviews about odors, but I didn't notice. I let it open up for a few days before use and didn't have any issues with odor! Did I mention I love this thing?? I LOVE IT! Well worth the cost. I bought new bedding (mattress pad and sheets) to accommodate the size of mattress plus topper.
We were in the process of looking for a new mattress and decided it was worth a try with just doing a topper first. The reviews on the Serta 4-inch Topper were very good - and the price at 200.00 was less than those with lesser reviews. We've been enjoying it for over a month now, and it looks like we won't be mattress shopping for a while now.
Previous happy owner of a 2" higher density foam (same brand) that was getting quite old, so we decided to buy a new one. "Let's get a thicker one" was someone's great idea (okay, mine). I didn't like the way I sunk too far down into it. After several months I yanked it off the bed and put the old one back on (SO thankful we kept it), and I'm much happier now--my back feels better again. FWIW, my husband didn't have an issue with it (but he didn't proclaim his love for it like he did when we first got the original one).
I have a soft Serta mattress and this topper can knock me out for 12 hours no problem. I sometimes don't even want to get out of bed. Because I sink a good deal with this topper, I try to sleep "without" a pillow to avoid neck issues in the morning.
We travel a great deal, doing consulting work. The last furnished apartment that was rented for us had an absolutely horribly hard bed. It was like sleeping on bricks. We ordered this Serta Ultimate 4-inch Visco Memory Foam Mattress Topper with the hope that it would provide some relief. Wow! We were so surprised to find out how truly comfortable it made our sleep experience. There is a bit of an adjustment period in learning to sleep on memory foam, but aches and pains that used to be a routine part of waking up began disappearing after just a couple of night's sleep. We have a marvelous bed at home, but I suspect we will bring this topper home and improve our already great mattress!
I love love love this! I was tossing and turning throughout the night. Put this on and sleep like a baby now. Just threw it on top my old mattress. Had to buy deep-dish sheets too. Fortunately my friends got a new bed and gave me their low profile boxsprings. Otherwise it was too high for me.
