I just received my mattress topper. It is too long for my queen mattress. What is the best way to shorten it?
My husband and I needed a pad to make a king sized bed in our rental home more comfortable. Not having the ability to switch out the mattress we ordered this pad and while it's not the most luxurious pad we've ever owned it does the job nicely and we are sleeping well on it....

My other half fell in love with my 3-inch memory foam topper, but has a bad back and didn't want to strain turning it. He found he sleeps just as well on his own 3-inch topper. We are both happier waking up with much less body pain and better sleep.Read More
It was what I expected. I had to trim the length to make the cover fit perfectly. It took about 3 days to get the smell out. It is quite comfortable for me as I have to sleep on my side. I purchased it as it seemed the best for the price. I studied all toppers for days before purchasing this.Read More
Cons: At first the mattress topper appeared in good shape, it took about 2-3 weeks to air out the strong odor, there is still some mild odor lingering. There was some small pieces/particles falling apart from the mattress topper, it appeared a little dusty, I noticed it after taking it off a dark sheet. The cut/shape of the topper was not a perfect match for a regular King Size bed. The fitted sheet that came with it was 2-4 inches smaller than the topper itself (after it was washed). Pros: 2" does feel just right and is comfortable sleeping in it for my back. Initially I had a 4" memory foam (not same Brand) that was too thick and I just sank into it, giving me no back support. I do wake up with less back pain than usual. Other than the above complaints, everything else was good. I don't recommend this to anyone with sensitive smell. I do recommend this mattress topper to people who are not obese (no offense to anyone), I feel that it does give support if your body does not sink in too deep.Read More
Very happy with this purchase. I recently purchased a brand new mattress that was giving me some pressure-point pain as I am exclusively a side sleeper. I decided to try this gel memory foam topper as I am a hot sleeper and heard that regular memory foam is very hot. The topper arrived quickly and all wrapped up small in a box. It expanded immediately upon removing the plastic wrap and I was so happy that the smell was minimal. I am very sensitive to smells and this was not nearly as bad as I have heard memory foam smelling. I had to get right down next to it to smell it, and it was faint. I left it out overnight and put it on my bed the next day. It fit right to the edge. Note that I spent the extra money on the topper that came with the cover, and that was kind of a waste, because while it fit when I first tried it, I decided to wash it before putting it on the bed to sleep on, and even though I dried on low, it shrunk. It just *barely* fits now, and a seem is up where my feet hit and I can feel it sometimes through my sheets. I had a little aches and pains the first night just because I wasn't used to the foam, but after a few days it was fine. Give yourself a week to get used to it. The foam is nice and cool, doesn't smell (smell was totally gone after 24 hours) and it's easy to flip around (some people say the foam toppers are like quicksand and it's hard to move--not the case with this). I am able to sleep on my sides now without pain in my hips and I love sinking into the bed a little with this topper. Highly recommended!Read More
I bought this about 2 months ago and for the most part, love it. While lying on my back, it seems very firm, about the same as my mattress. On my side it is totally different. I rest comfortably as does my side sleeping wife. It also feels good while lying on my stomach. As far as the smell. I laid it out for 24 hours before putting it on the bed and the first night, I caught just a very slight odor, after that, nothing. Since it is winter, I cannot comment on the warmness that some people experience, but this time of the year, it is wonderful. Overall, my wife and I are very happy and our dogs seem to like it too.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello Maddie, the foam cuts easily using an electric knife. Scissor can also be used, but the cut will not be as “clean” as with an electric knife. Thank you for shopping with us!
Why did you choose this product?
the Egyptian cotton and the reviews
bed sags sometimes and mattress gives off too much heat from my body
Can the cover be laundered in the washing machine? Does the Gel-Memory Foam have two sides - one with the cooling gel and the other side with regular memory foam so that we could flip it for cooling in the summer to regular memory foam in the winter? Or is the foam one continuous piece made of the same material throughout?
Hello delightinbeauty, the foam is the same on both sides. The cover can be removed and washed. The memory foam can not be washed. Have a great day!
Could you please describe the cover. Is it like a fitted sheet or does the cover completely encase all sides of the foam.
Hello nic04, thank you for your inquiry! The cover does not have a bottom it has a skirt and is like a fitted sheet. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!
