I purchased this to help prolong the life of my dying mattress! I put it under the mattress and pad and it helped even out the slight sag in my mattress! There really was no chemical smell which I was happy about. (Many times memory foam stinks!)
I just purhcased this under a year ago, and now already its starting split down the middle. I would of thought that it would be a bit more resilent then to separate. Now I need to purchase another one to replace this one. Don't recommend.
This pad was very comfy and fit my bed fine. That said, after a variety of weird little health issues, I finally woke up one morning after two nights of marginal sleep due to severe itching, it dawned on me what was the common denominator. I searched on "foam pad allergies" and immediately found a site where people listed all the weird symptoms I had been experiencing during the past two months but had not linked together: mysterious cough, congestion, breathing problems, random depression/apathy, lethargy/fatigue on waking, weird dreams and finally, an itchy rash like no other. Granted, I have a very small apartment and it is winter, meaning no windows are being opened. I left the pad out for a day to "air out" as suggested but essentially, it was just leeching into the trapped air in my apartment. I have had sleep pads before with no issue. My kids have them for their beds at school with no problem. But just be wary and consider where you are putting the pad and make sure you give it PLENTY of time to air out. Essentially, it's just a condensed pile of chemicals (normally used to insulate houses) that you are throwing on your bed. I'm going to take this to my mother's (where there's more room) and try to air it out for a month or so, including putting it out in the sun for a day or two. In the meantime, I've ordered a feather bed.
I bought this back in Dec 2011 for a used bed we were given for our guest room. I personally need a softer feel because of a medical issue causing pain. I have loved sleeping in this myself when my hubby was snoring too loud. It was very compfy with the memory foam topper added. Any guests I have had have loved it too! BUT my last guest's grandson wet the bed and saturated it even though I thought the pad I had on it would be protective? I got on here to buy a new one asap and I am very sad that in 9 months the price went up 24$ and the shipping isn't free as it was the first time. I am am buying another but sad I will not only pay more but to get a water proof cover I will have to spend what I paid for the original. :( Still I did, and hopefully will again, love it. I do get a bit warm on it but not like I have on other memory foam. Nobody else have complained.
We recently purchased a solid memory foam mattress, which is HEAVENLY to sleep on. But, one night a week its necessary for me to sleep in our guest room. The mattress was "ok" but, couldn't be compared to our mattress! I bought this topper, out of desperation ( and the price was right), and it made all the difference. No, it's not like sleeping on our solid memory foam mattress, but it's still very comfortable.
We purchased this with the hope that it would help us get a better night's sleep on an older matress. The topper was great, our bed is not so if you are ordering this to fix a bed it can't work miracles. After getting a new matress it was perfect for our needs.
Although it does cushion some as a topper, it does not give 2 inches worth of true foam cushion. I have a solid 2 inch memory foam topper which is excellent, this bumpy alternative is really not up to par and not a true 2 inches with the egg carton topping.
They had an odor coming out of the box, however, it was explained on the inset that it would go away when aired over night. Took a couple of days but the odor did go away. I did not notice in the pic that they were egg crate on one side and I guess I also didn't notice that a cover was not included. For the price (I purchased four) they are nice two inch toppers and I will place a mattress cover on top anyway. Kids say they like them!
My husband thought we needed a new mattress, I did not think so. Lovely compromise, I saw this memory foam topper, knew the price was great and bought it. Shipping was great, immediately on the doorstep and my husband and I are both SO happy. The bed feels brand new and we sleep wonderfully relaxed. I also note that sheets slip less and so do persons in the bed.....my husband is elderly and this is an issue, no more falling out of bed! Recommend this as a lovely gift to yourself!!
