I was debating whether or not to buy a completely new mattress or save the dough and buy a topper. Man oh man, did I make the right decision. This bad boy makes sleeping a dream. I don't even want to fall asleep, because I want to revel in the sensation of lying on this mattress topper. I can't believe I've been sleeping without this my whole life. I want to build a time machine and go install one of these in my mother's womb. If you're reading this right now and sleeping on a mattress, look deep into my brown internet eyes. Buy it. It's a third of your life, and you'll sleep better, which in turn makes you feel better, which in turn will give you the energy and confidence you need to give your boss the finger and start that restaurant you've been telling everyone about. You could be sleeping on this big blue waffle in like FOUR DAYS. Don't get left out.
There was a choice of two Slumber Solutions Gel toppers. I chose the one that was more expensive and seemed denser. I think I got the one with the deeper pillow top indentations that looked less dense and was cheaper. The topper was advertised to be 3.2 lbs density, but it is much too soft and there is too much give in the topper for this to be accurate. At least half the depth of the 3 inch topper is the pillow top part with only 1 1/2 inches of any substance. I have had memory foam toppers before, so I have experience with them and this product is not up to the quality of the other toppers. Also, just by airing out the topper, before it was even used, I found small tears that were not there when first opened. I did not move the topper roughly, or any more than any normal use of placing it on a bed. I would have considered returning it but company was coming to visit and I really needed it for a very firm mattress on the folding sofa bed in the guest room. I'm not sure how to store it when I fold the bed back up; I'm concerned it will rip some more and leaving it on the bed is an option. I don't typically write reviews, however when I bought this product there were no reviews available to help me decide, and I think others should be warned.
I aired this out for a day outside before putting it onto my bed because I had problems with other foam toppers. It really didn't need it, there was very minimal odor. The first night I slept on it there was a very slight scent, but it was not in the least problematic more like a "new" smell. When I woke in the morning, both my husband and I had much less joint pain. It was like sleeping on a cloud. I have hot flashes at night and was concerned about it being too hot. Turns out it was not an issue at all. Between the gel and the airflow there was no temperature difference than sleeping on my regular mattress without it. The only down side is my mattress is a deep one and when adding the foam my sheets don't fit. Not a problem, either get sheets that are deeper or use what I call sheet garters. There are a pack of four that clips on to each corner and slips under the mattress to hold the sheet on. Other than that I would highly recommend this topper! Very pleased with my purchase!!
This mattress topper absolutely made all the difference in the world for us. It is a well-made product that really does what its supposed to and very well! My husband and I had been sleeping on a futon fold-out bed, on an inexpensive futon mattress that was so uncomfortable that we could feel the cross boards of the frame within a month of use. We've used foam mattress covers before -- and our daughter uses one at college -- but this product is quite another and better animal! The density of the foam of the topper and the gel technology really kick it up to another level. Especially for the price... I would recommend that you purchase a protective cover for it, if you can manage it, when you make a purchase. We have pets and had a close call a week after we bought the topper! Highly recommend this product. BTW, there was no odor at all that we recognized...Also, I have a lot of allergies and have not reacted to the topper.
my husband has a bad back so when we bought a new mattress and box spring last year we got a very expensive firm mattress. Well it was too firm for me so I've been sleeping in the recliner. He finally admitted it was too firm for him but we didn't want to go buy a new one so when I saw this gell filled topper I was so happy.....back to sleeping in my bed and hubby is happy too! Very nice and the price was nice too but I would be happy at twice the price. Great value!
Gel memory form has a very nice touch and it is nice and soft. However, the mattress has cone shape on the surface and it is 3" only at the thickest place. At the dip of the cone shape, I would say it is only 1" thick. That is the only complaint that I have.
My husband and I needed a new mattress because I have 2 herniated disks in my neck and also have spinal stenosis in my C3 and C4. We couldn't afford one this year because we just moved to a new duty station. Well we decided to invest in a mattress topper and I read the reviews on this one, so I ordered it. I cant believe how comfortable this gel pad is. I cant remember the last time I slept this well! It felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. I fell asleep right away and slept through the night (which is rare for me) And this morning I woke up with NO neck pain! This is totally worth the money!
When this topper arrived I aired it out as instructed for at least 48 hours. Finally found time to place it on the bed. I was disappointed as it is very flimsy, not like the toppers I am use to. I buy a new topper every 18 months as I have arthritis and they work like a dream for me. I was worried about this one as it is actually about 1" thick, only the 'peaks' reach up to 3" but with the great reviews this topper has I decided to go ahead and use it. Wow the first ten days were great! It felt great to sleep on and is a bit cooler then a denser memory foam. I was going to write a good review for it but had not found the time. Now I am into the third week of using this topper and it has latterly ripped in half! It is falling apart! Even the halves are ripping apart! I have never seen anything like it. I am absolutely disgusted that I wasted money on something that lasted less then 3 full weeks! It's better to wait three or so weeks before you leave your review of this incredibly awful topper as it will fall apart. Lesson learned.
I've slept on this for 2 nights and have not slept this well in years. I'm 55 years young but suffer joint pain. I own a pillow top queen mattress and it does not cushion the pressure points of my body enough. This mattress topper does the trick. It is so sothing and comfortable. My dog doesn't want to sleep in her own bed. She's 13 and must find it as comfortable as me. So I would recommend it for anyone having similar problems. For this 5' 1", 150 lb. lady it is like sleeping on a cloud. Thank you Overstock for delivering it so quickly. One more thing, the value was great and it had a mild odor. I aired it outside for about 30 minutes and that was good enough for me.Thanks Overstock.
We have purchased many 'toppers' for our mattress. We got so tired of them slipping to one side or the other. I sit up and watch TV in bed and the toppers slide down. The memory foam topper was recommended to us and we tried it. We absolutely love it! I ordered one for my Mom and plan to order one for each of our beds. It is that comfortable. AND it doesn't slide! Love it! If you are looking for a mattress topper, I definitely recommend you try this one!
I love the Slumber Solutions Gel Highloft 30inch Twin/full-size Memory Foam Mattress Topper. Much more comfortable sleep. I am always getting a good night's sleep, and sleep deep. This mattress topper is better than buying a new mattress...made my body more comfortable.
When I got this I was skeptical that it would really keep me cool, as other memorey foam toppers while being cushioney, always ended up being hot after layiing on them for a length of time, but this one really works, keeps me cool & comfortable. I Love, Love, Love it.
I was considering buying a new mattress but didn't want to spend the money. Decided on this topper instead. Best decision ever! It is so comfortable, I hardly move in my sleep. It does cause you to sleep warmer but for winter I don't care, I will deal with summer when it comes. I would recommend it highly to anyone. I did not think it smelled. It fit my bed perfectly.
I received this gel mattress topper and l let it air for 3 1/2 days before putting it on my bed to remove the odor. I suppose I could have used it prior to then, but I wanted all that smell to leave completely. Prior to this, I purchased a Slumber Solutions non-gel 3 inch foam mattress, and it held on to body heat. This gel topper id not hot and it is so comfortable. It feels heavenly, like being embraced by clouds of pillows, if you can imagine that.
