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 a backache when I bought this. Still do. It is a memory foam which means you sink in while sleeping on it and I am petite (5'1 and weigh 138 lbs). This makes turning around very dificult when you are sore from working out or are suffering from back injury like me. Overall, it is okay. Maybe it would be better if I just place it on the box spring as our mattress already has springs in it and it makes the memory top very bouncy. Would be curious to see how it affects temperature once it's warm out and in the hot summer months. Hopefully, once my back is all healed, I will be 100% satisfied with it. I also don't like the fact that it makes the bed so high. I maybe would have been happier with the 2-inch memory foam. Delivery was fast and item arrived wrapped up nicely with no damage. It's definitely very heavy. I needed my husband to help me unfold it and set it up on the bed.
we purchased this for our camper because the beds are just way to hard
when we opened up the package there was a smell for about an hour or two but that was it. we use it everytime we camp and we sleep so much better now. definitely worth the money.
My husband is 81 and having trouble sleeping, he was getting up two or three times a night. We tried different sleeping medicine and nothing worked. I had even tried the egg crate topper that did not work and it was hot and very hard. Was at my wits end when I happened to be looking for bedding and came across the listing for memory foam topper, that was my lucky day. I must have read about 300 reviews said to myself this is what we need. I order the 4 inch memory foam it arrived in about 3 days. We laid it out for 24 hours and there was some smell to it I sprayed it with febreze and it was gone in a day. We both have had the best night sleep we have had in 25 years. I can not tell you how much this has helped my husband. We love it so much we have told our whole family & friends about it, and my daughter has one already and several more of the family are looking into buying one also. I am so sure that you can not go wrong in buying the memory foam topper. You will get the best night sleep ever. WE SURE DID..
We were overdue for new mattresses and had spent several months researching which ones to buy. We decided on IComfort with the adjustable base but that comes with a huge price tag that I couldn't commit to. I decided to look for foam toppers, locally in retail stores and online. The Serta Ultimate had great reviews on multiple sites and was on sale on Overstock.
We made the purchase in the beginning of Dec 2012 and I wanted to experience it for a while before providing a review. It has been one of the best investments we have made. We are both tall,fit people and the 4" provides ample support. I experience significant lower back pain and the fact this molds to your body adds so much relief to pressure points.
We now rush to bed and enjoy a good nights rest!
We have a sleep number bed and I just needed a little more "something" for comfort. I had heard and read about the memory foam mattress topper but was a little leary to try it on my sleep number bed...I finally decided to try it anyway. WOW! It is so comfortable and I sleep so good. Be sure and order at least a 4 inch topper, which I did. If you are short this may not work as the bed becomes much higher. You will need help putting it on as it is heavy. I will never be without a memory foam topper. Try it ! You will like it!
I study in America. How to I conserve the foam during summer holiday when I go back to my country. If i have to roll up really tight for two month, will it ruin the foam? \
Also, does the foam smells really bad?
thank youbenjamin88 on Feb 23, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, benjamin88. Ideally, you should store this flat, in an airtight box. However, if that isn't possible, you should roll it rather than fold it, and seal it in an airtight bag to protect it from moisture and dust. If it is rolled, it will take some time to flatten out after two months, but it should not be ruined if properly stored. Some memory foam toppers will come with a slight odor, which should dissipate if you let it air for 24 hours or so. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 24, 2014

to catmommy; did u say u bought the cooling gel version or the 4" Visco Foam Serta Topper. Do u think the 4" topper is still not a good buylisamst on Feb 14, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I did not get the get version..4' is fine, but was too soft for us, so I got the 3'vented and love it. My 2 kids have the 4' each and love the,. I put mine in the quest room with a mattress pad and it is not as soft (hard to even turn over). The pad fit good on the mattress that was not as deep.jcbyrd on Feb 21, 2014
We bought this actual topper (Serta Ultimate 4-inch Visco Memory Foam Mattress Topper), and we do like it. I have bought several different ones over the years because in my opinion, the foam loses the comfort factor after about 2 years. This specific one is very dense, so not quite as "cushiony" as others, but it might last longer than the others we've had. The cooling one we bought 2 years ago was useless after a year, so I would not buy a cooling one again. It didn't even seem cooler than the others. Hope this helps!catmommy on Feb 21, 2014
Does this item have a cooling gel in it so it is not hot during the summer months. If not what do you make that would be comparable?lisamst on Feb 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Definitely not a "cool" version, but the "cool" version I bought was lousy anyway, so don't necessarily believe what you read! It is decent quality, but I bought a King for my girls' twin beds (easily cut to size and cheaper), but they weigh so little it actually doesn't make the bed very soft to them.catmommy on Feb 13, 2014
I got the 3" ventilated topper w/o gel. I LOVE it...not hot and able to move around on it without sinking it. Soft and snugglyjcbyrd on Feb 21, 2014

Hello colatown, I would call your local mattress store and see where they dispose of the old memory foam. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 13, 2014
I would put it on the curb with a sign that says $5.00 and its yours. Someone will steal it. Seriously, check with a local shipper, they might take it and use it as padding.aktrom on Jan 24, 2014

This topper should work great to create a king surface.dllowry on Jan 6, 2014
I think it should work. Tie the beds together to keep them tight.rosietwo1 on Jan 11, 2014
Hi angelicnambo, I recently purchased a king bed and the foundation is 2 twin beds and then it has the king mattress on top. I think this would work great to even out you bed. The 2 twin beds should equal a king size so you shouldn't have to trim the topper at all. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 13, 2014
King or Cal, King would do. All kinds of things you can do with the left overs. Use a mattress pad to keep the together.jcbyrd on Feb 21, 2014
Does this topper ever get softer? It's extremely firm right now and takes a while for the foam to contour to the body. I received this three days ago and have slept on it two nights now. I like it, but my husband hates it because it's too hard. I'm hoping I won't have to get rid of it. What is the return policy by the way?del234 on Dec 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello del234, yes this does soften up. Me and my husband just bought a memory foam mattress and it was to hard also. We have had it for a month now and I am in heaven. They do soften up a bit.
Items must be returned in new or unused condition and contain all original materials included with the shipment.
Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 11, 2013
I do not have the topper yet. It is in shipping. When I reached this on Consumer Reports it was rated number one! I understand that it is heat sensitive. If your room temp is cooler the mattress topper will be more firm. The warm the topper is the more it will soften up. When I get it I will write a review after one month. We live in a cold climate so it will really be put to the test. As is has over 4,000 reviews and nearly five stars overall, I'd give it a chance. If you are approaching the end of the return window and still don't like it - call Overstock. They usually will send you a UPS call tag free of charge.collings2 on Jan 3, 2014
Yes, it does get softer with age, and will eventually 'break down' in areas where you sleep. Then it is time to replace. Worth every dime.fmbcondos on Feb 12, 2014
Don't use a mattress pad that fit too snug...it takes away from the solf.jcbyrd on Feb 21, 2014

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 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.

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
