The topper comes in two pieces each 1" thick: A Memory foam base and the gel topper which is like memory foam with gel. It also comes with a cotton mattress pad cover to hold the topper onto the mattress. I rolled it out and aired it for a night before installing and once on the bed could not detect any smell once installed. It is super comfortable and really molds to my body. It's also cool which is important to me since I have hot flashes sometimes at night. This topper exceeded my expectations and I am more than happy with it.
The "golden age" is not for sissies. Both my spouse and I suffer back pain along with a lot of other aches and pains that seem to plague those of us when we get older. We were looking for a way to make our old mattress more comfortable. We would both toss and turn every night and just couldn't seem to sleep soundly. OMG! We slept on our new mattress topper for the first time last night. I don't think either one of us moved the entire night. What a fabulous difference this made. Both of us slept very soundly and completely through the night. We awoke rested, refreshed, and with much less back pain. Thank you so much!
While I would recommend this, I would suggest the description be addended to to mention that this is 2 seperate pieces, and I am not sure if the top gel piece is actually a gel at all but I can say its nice, soft, adds comfort to any style mattress and does keep me cooler.
Oh. Em. Gee! I can get out of bed and stand straight again! I previously had a latex mattress that I loved, although admittedly it was probably time for a new one so when I moved in with my husband he wanted to use his mattress instead. Ugh. I've been plagued with back problems since. So I insisted if we couldn't get a new mattress, I was at least getting a topper. Did a little research and decided on this one. I stuck to the 2" one because he was so skeptical about it ever being any help. He's convinced now after sleeping a couple of nights 'like a rock'. I should have just gotten the 3" but ya know...baby steps. Next time for sure. Loving the gel part..it felt weird at first, but I tend to get hot when I sleep and I don't notice it being any worse than before. Actually seems a little better. It DOES come in 2 pieces. I misunderstood the '2 part' portion of the product details. No biggie though. And the smell went away in 2 days as the instructions indicate.
We have a Flexsteel full sized sofa bed. I use it for company only. It came with a 4" mattress and it needed something else so I purchased this gel topper. I have slept on it to test it and it is comfortable, especially with the cotton cover on it, which is removable and washable. I found myself falling asleep faster than normal. It is cool feeling and soft but not to soft. I haven't tried it out on visitors yet, but hopefully it will make their stay restful.
I was a little disappointed when I opened the package and discovered it was not a two-inch solid mattress, but 2, 1 inch mattresses. After saying that, they do feel really good and soft and we seem to be sleeping better because of having them on the bed.
This product was purchased to fit between an 8 inch futon mattress and a vinyl zippered cover, to make the futon more comfortable for sitting and sleeping. It does the job very well. Be advised that the product is two separate layers.....they are not bonded together. This did not affect my application, so I am still recommending this highly. Unlike some other reviewers, I did NOT notice any chemical smell, and was able to put the pad to use immediately after opening the package.
after 1 night of interesting sleep? i kept it on for a week, in the middle of the night i got out of bed and tore it off, the next day i put the blue thnig on ONLY....now i sleep fine i want 80% of my money back dont buy this, just buy the cooling pad SAVE YOUR MONEY
