The first few nights it takes a little getting used to. My back felt sore like after a massage. However, very soon the soreness disappeared and the relief showed up. I couldn't imagine sleeping without my memory foam. It does sometimes trap a little heat but nothing to be concerned about. Like other reviews my memmory foam too came with a slice on one side. NO big deal I just put that side down. You won't regret buying this. DON'T MISS IT !!!!!
Bought it in an attempt to alleviate pain from herniated back disc. Nothing else worked. Within two days, I could get out of bed, PAIN FREE, in the morning. (The rest of the day is another matter.) At least I can get a decent night's sleep and start the day standing upright. I am buying toppers for both my other beds, for my daughters. Why someone didn't tell me about this product before, I can't imagine. I'm recommending it to my orthopedic surgeon -- his back is out, too, and suggesting that he tell my fellow patients to try it, as well. It's a very cheap way to obtain real relief, almost overnight. Get the pillow, too. That "it's too hard" stuff is nuts. That's THE POINT. It doesn't collapse when you lay on it. It "gives", just like the topper.
I ordered the memory foam topper because I have been sleeping on an air mattress for the past year. I am allergic to dust mites and dust mite debre. Sleeping on a plastic air mattress has solved most of my problem. But I needed more of something between me and the plastic air mattress. The memory foam topper was the answer. I got the 4 inch thick memory foam and I really love it. It is comfortable and I have been sleeping like a baby after the first night of sleeping and getting used to the major difference from rolling around all over the bed to get comfortable before the memory foam and now falling into bed and sleeping with hardly moving due to the comfort of the memory foam.
I use to toss and turn all night long from achy pressure on my hips or shoulders. Since we put the memory foam topper on I can sleep in one position all night long! My kids liked ours so much that they started complaining that thier mattresses were uncomfortable so I recently ordered them 2 in foam toppers. Thanks for a great product and good price!!
Wonderful addition to a great mattress. I had bought one for a smaller bed and when we upgraded to a King sized bed I hoped to get another topper. This serta brand topper is really great and fits my king sized bed well. It is a very restful and comfortable slumber. I have had back problems in the past and am very happy with this purchase.
Have been using the pad for 4 weeks now and really love it. Very comfortable. You must use a matress cover with this pad and I recommend a deep one with elastic sides that covers the entire mattress. My only complaint was the dirty handprints on the end where it was rolled up for packaging. You cannot clean this material
I love my new memory foam mattress topper. I usually wake up in the morning stiff and sore, but no more. It really does take the presure off your back, hips and all those pressure point places on your body that hurt when you lay certain ways on a regular mattress. I was actually getting ready to purchase a 2.5 inch off brand memory foam mattress topper for $50.00 when I came across this 4 inch one at overstock.com. I quickly cancelled my other order at the other store and purchased this one. The only slightly negative thing that I could possibly think of about this topper that may bother some people is that it does conduct heat. Our bed is much warmer than it was without the topper. It doesn't bother me, but my husband sometimes complains about being hot. I told him that he will appreciate it when winter comes and to just turn down the comforter for now.
I recently received my Serta Ultimate 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper. I have now had peaceful and comfortable nights sleeping. I have had trouble going numb on my limbs and hips as I slept. Now with my new topper, it supports my body with ease and comfort. I previously had a 2" topper, but had to leave it when I moved. So this new 4" topper is the best! Thank You Serta for having a 4" thick topper that helps cradle me to sleep. I do wish Over stock offered a cover that the topper could zip into. The mattress unfolded itself within an hour. I couldn't believe it. I have read about the topper being easily torn. The plastic I took off did touch the side of it after it came into shape. This did cause a little tear on the side, So it is delicate. So be careful. But a great product! I would recommend this to anyone who needs something soft under them to give them a restful nights sleep. If you have pressure problems, this will definately help. A great value!
My husband has restless leg sydrome and is up and down all night long. We have had our old mattress for over 15 yrs now. It was top of the line at the time. We both agreed we needed a new one But our daughter is getting married in April 2008 and all of our funds are tied up till she gets married. My husband had a freind tell him about the memory foam topper and he couldn't say enough good things about it. So for the price I thought it was the next best thing to hold us over till we could buy the Memory Foam Bed. We have never slept better since we got our topper. Everyone loves to come over and just lay on it. I would recommend this topper to everyone.
I bought the 4in. to maximize the super comfort level. In retrospect I think a 3in. may have been a better choice, both for the cost savings and to limit the "hammock" effect. I'm a large guy of 260lbs. and the topper tends to sag understandably around my mid section. This product is great. Enjoy!
