I purchased this 4" memory foam mattress topper as a last effort to find something that would help me sleep better. I have been fighting a few horrible disease's called Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthristis and Chronic Fatigue for years and have never slept through the night. I'm only 44yrs old and too young to feel so old. The first time I put on my memory foam topper, I just layed there with no pain and instant relief. I didn't even get into my pajamas; because I fell asleep within minutes and to my amazement, slept all night long in the same postion. I woke up in complete shock and actually for the first time could walk to the bathroom without feeling stiff and bouncing off my furniture to just hold me up because of the pain. There's not a prescription from any of my doctor's that could have provided me with such relief. Now my condition is getting so much better because I am actually sleeping through all four stages of sleep that your body needs to repair your muscles, ligaments, tendons, not to mention your state of well being from having a great night sleep! I highly recommend this topper to everyone, especially people who suffer from insomnia caused by pain that awakens you when ever you move at night. With this topper, I find that I do not move. This is the best investment which was so cost effective, I could have ever purchased. There's not a sleeping pill in the world that can out do this topper! Thank You Overstock for saving my life. I was at a very low time in my life from suffering such chronic pain day and night. A good nights sleep keeps pain at bay during the day. WOW...what a dream come true. Sincerely, Carolyn
I were a bit skeptical to buy this topper as I know like all of you out there, a good night sleep is priceless... was just thinking of getting rid of my mattress which is still in mid condition and got one of those Tempur Medic mattress instead...Last minutes, I have decided to try this one out first...... oh my Gosh, it was so very comfortable..& .how good was it???? I almost missed work this morning and it is just not so me to do that...
My advice, spend monies to buy this first if you are thinking about replacing your mattress...
it is really really Great for a fraction of what could cost you..and it is made by Serta...can't go wrong with that..
Please note of one thing, the instruction of how to open this topper was packed in the bottom of the box, so I tried to manually rolled the topper opened and
Opps, it was a mistake...I did open it, but it took a lot of of me to do so.... Please do not attempt to do that, just open the topper from its wrapper and let it sit on the floor for at leasat 24hour to air out the smell, but also make it easier to roll it open later.
One happy and repeat customer...
I wasnt going to review this product until I had it for a while. 1 year later, here's my review:
- with memory foam pads, the thicker, the better. 4" is the thickkest ive seen available out there.
- decently priced. you get what you pay for
- never woke up with a bad back, also considering i sleep on my side and chest
- i sleep longer
- it is heat sensitive: if it's cold in the room, it's firmer, if it's hot, it's softer and it's no longer a "memory foam" but a regular foam.
- with that said, the area/shape you sleep on is not really a "memory foam" because of warm body temperature
- the more it is exposed to the air (especially the edges), the foam turns from white to yellow like the rest of the regular foams
- it's about 2" short from regular mattress size. but i suppose that's to make room for the fitted sheet to cover the mattress and the extra 4" thick memory foam.
- im about 120lbs, the firmness is perfect. but i dont know about those heavier than me, because like i said about the heat/temperature problem, you might find your self sinking down making it a bit uncomfortable in the summer.
I thought I would wait a few months before writing a review, so here it is: We really needed a new bed (ours is about 8 yrs. old), but couldn't afford to spend $1000-2000. My husband and I were waking up with sore backs every morning. I thought I would try the memory foam mattress topper first, at least to 'buy us some time'. It arrived in a rectangular box and I unfolded it and let it sit in the guest room for a day or two. Then I dragged it to our room (a bit awkward to carry, but not too bad:) and put it on our bed. We have a King size bed and it fits pretty well. I bought new deep pockets sheets at the same time and even though they don't fit all the way down to the bottom of the original mattress, we haven't had problems with them slipping off. My husband was very skeptical about the mattress topper at first, but quickly became a fan after about 2 nights. We no longer wake up with back pain. I wouldn't say it's ' like sleeping on a cloud', but it is very, very comfortable once you get used to it (after a night or 2). I have been very happy with it, especially since we don't have to buy a new bed now! I was worried about the temperature issue, but haven't noticed any problems. My husband tends to be warmer than I am and he hasn't had any issues either. I think he likes the mattress topper even more than I do! He says he sleeps better too. I have noticed that I no longer wake up several times each night to get comfortable, so that is a definite improvement. Overall, I am very happy with this mattress pad and would recommend it!
I had completely ignored the possibility of using foam on our bed until I tried it at my daughters home. My main concern was the heat factor...if you use a cover over the foam, and then make the bed as usual, there is little heat transfered to the body. Almost immediately upon lying down, the memory foam begins to mold to your shape...it's actually shocking to me how well I sleep now, and how deeply. I have discovered, also, that I rarely move during the night....and wake up really refreshed and ready to go. I am so sold on this 4 inch memory foam that I have since purchased it for the other beds in the house. The prices here on overstock are by far the best I've discovered, and shipping was quick as well.
I would highly recommend...
I bough this because my mattress is super hard and my back would be in pain every morning.
This gave me the added comfort I needed and a great nights rest. It is SOOOO comfortable..I hate to get out of bed now.
A year later, after moving and changing back to the old queen bed found myself really hurting without the topper :( Put an order in for another !!! It's fantastic really, great price for a better sleep + back. Can't wait for it to come in.
Bought the full size this time and it is a little short but is very comfortable. Is a little expensive but improves quality of a worn mattress. Is better than purchasing a new mattress. Highly recommend. Sleep so much better on this!!!!
I am planning on giving this as a gift to my boyfriend, so I would like to keep the topper in its packaging. In the details it says to remove in 72 hours.. what will happen if i leave it in the box until christmas? will it effect the memory foam? Is there anyway I can delay shipping or how to handle this particular case?blonde11224 on Dec 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello Blonde11224! We do apologize, we are not able to delay shipping with purchases. We recommend to remove from the packing within 72 hours to to maximize memory foam expansion. Also, being sealed in plastic packaging sometimes traps odors. After unwrapping, allow product to air for a few hours.

How does this topper perform with regards to motion dispersion? I usually turn over several times a night and my wife says it wakes her up every time. Will this topper help?

Hello salittle, In reading info on the Down Alternative Gsseted Design Euro Top Cover for Memory Foam Topper, it definitely says it will fit up to a 3 inch memory foam topper. I think this is an oversight on our part and it will not fit. Thank you for your question. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 4, 2013
Yes, I have bought two of the 4 inch memory foam toppers and they fit.marram34 on Sep 27, 2013
NO I never received one. Just the foamnickisix6 on Jul 13, 2013
It doesn't come with a cover, but you can easily find a Mattress Cover with a fuller expandable elastic bottom that will stretch far enough to cover both your Mattress and your Memory Foam Topper. I have done this and it works wonders on helping the Topper last longer and keeps it from tearing.bataviababe on Jul 22, 2013

yes, this is extremely soft and has no support - I had to get rid of mine.sleepingbty on Jul 14, 2013
It would not sag, but it would definitely tear ... Jumping should NOT be allowed on ANY Memory Foam Products! Plenty of support for sleeping, but NOT for jumping.bataviababe on Jul 22, 2013
I love mine!! it does not sag like normal mattresses but I would tell the kids not to jump on it. you cant really its to smooshy. they may want to lay on it though. My girls always want to hang out in my room now. They are no longer bed jumpers but the grand kids are cant jump on foam.
I find it has good support I am a curvy person and find that a flat mattress doe not support my lower back this is heaven.andronico on Oct 22, 2013

Mine has not been any hotter than a regular mattress would. I live in a 4th floor apartment with only a window unit air conditioner. I sleep quite comfortably.jessica40208 on Jun 13, 2013
We have it on our bed at our beach house. We didn't know that they can run hot and have never noticed it but then our bedroom is on the colder side. We rent out our beach house and routinely get comments that this is the most comfortable bed they have ever slept on. My husband just loves it! Be warned though, it makes the mattress very tall and hard to find sheets for.caralucy on Jun 21, 2013

Is the smell from the topper hazardous/toxic? Is it safe for pregnant women to sleep on?sue199 on May 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
We never had the smell that others reported.dwcoats1999 on May 22, 2013
Hi sue199, Please continue to air the foam outside of its cover (if it includes one), either outside or in a room with an open window. The foam needs fresh air in order to air out. The odor is a "fresh foam" odor that is not harmful. The odor should have aired out within 72 hours from when unpacked; however, sometimes it may take 1-2 weeks. You may also spray the foam lightly with Febreze or Lysol. Please return these products to the store of purchase if the smell has not dissipated. Memory foam is made from 100% polyurethane. Polyurethane Foam is an inert, inactive product that poses no health hazard unless burned. Our foam does not contain latex, formaldehyde, or PBDE's. Foam has a distinct odor. One can become sensitive to the odor, just like one can become sensitive to perfume or cologne. Foam is non-allergenic; however, should you develop sensitivity in any way, discontinue use of the product. Thanks for your inquiry, hope this helps!overstockcustomercare1 on May 22, 2013
I didn't notice any smell at all. I had previously had a topper that did have a funny smell at first; this one did not. I did air it out overnight before putting it on the bed.mauigirl59 on May 23, 2013

Hello vadeltachi, I definitely think this topper could help your situation; however the topper will likely conform to the indentations in your mattress depending on how deep they are. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013
No! don't use on top of a sagging mattress - this will just sag into it as well. Get something new that is firm.sleepingbty on Jul 14, 2013
Would you please account for the weight differences? Below overstock specialist states: "Thank you for your inquiry. The Box Dimensions are Height: 12 Width: 12 Length: 36. The weight ranges depending what size your request. The weights are 25, 30, 46, and 58 pounds respectively. (Cal and king weigh the same)". According to this a full is only five pounds more than an individual, but a queen (which is really only 6 inches bigger than a full) is 14 pounds more than a full?

Hello berynice, unfortunately we do not have the exact weight of the item available. The weights provided in our previous response are shipping weights. The shipping weight can vary slightly from the actual weight. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013
That's a hard question to answer since it is a memory foam. I think the best answer is that the firmness level is totally dependent of how much weight you're putting on it. I'm a pretty big guy, compressing the foam 2-3 inches so it's fairly firm at that point. If you're a smaller, lighter person then I think it would be significantly less firm since you're not compressing it nearly as much. That said, I bought mine in a last attempt to not replace my mattress because it's too firm for me. After about a week now I think it's a lot better, though I'm getting used to foam aspect since I've always had a normal mattress.belralph on Apr 30, 2013
Hello amanmh, The Serta Ultimate Topper is considered to be medium firm.
Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us.
overstockcustomercare1 on May 1, 2013
I would say medium firm as well, but as stated depending on your weight.bnoelle333 on May 3, 2013
I agree with @belralph, the mattress is medium but your weight will have a lot to do with it as well. I am not a small person and have been using memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses for a few years now just to relieve pressure point on my body. I bought a $2000.00 mattress and I also bought this mattress topper for my guests bed. I actually prefer sleeping on this topper because it relieves pressure better but I do sink into it a bit and that takes a little getting used to but the comfort of getting a good night sleep is worth it.appgrab on May 7, 2013
I weigh 165 pounds and am 5'6". This topper cradles my body nicely. I would put it on the soft side, but not too soft. After looking I found the 4 pound foam is denser than others. I'm happy with this one.desperado83706 on May 12, 2013
I weigh 250 so I do sink into it pretty much but I have not bottomed out and still get relief from pressure points.wardragon on May 14, 2013
I am 115 lbs and thought it was way too soft. My husband is ~205 lbs and also thought it was super soft. That being said, we like a firmer mattress. Hope this helps.trixieandal on Jun 5, 2013

Your weight will be dispersed and I doubt seriously if it would flatten. The only problem I would imagine with this topper is while you are sleeping the mattress will contour to your body and it may sink enough to make it harder to turn over or move around.olivia30 on Apr 3, 2013
