I have been waking up with a slight backache for months. Nothing major and it goes away shortly after getting out of bed, but it was still annoying. I thought I would try this before buying another mattress. We have an expensive pillowtop that is only a few years old, but it sags in the middle. I didn't think it would help as much as it did because it was quite cushy and soft. I guess I thought it would have to be really hard in order to help. However, after the very first night, I didn't wake up with a backache! With that said, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a soft, cushy bed. If you're looking for something firm, then I'd recommend looking for something else. If you wake up with an annoying back ache, then this product is for you.
This is a very comfortable memory foam topper. Just allow plenty of time for it to "air out" after you open the package. All memory foam has a strong chemical odor when you first unpack it. The instructions say to allow 48 hours or more to let it expand and the chemical smell to go away. We left it for about 2 weeks, just to be sure the chemicals that are used to mannufacture the foam had a really good chance to get out of the mattress.
I loved the softness of this topper, but it took a lot longer (over two weeks) for the odor to dissipate. I am concerned about the safety of the toxic chemicals used in making the foam, particularly since the instructions suggested the odor would dissipate in about 48 hours. Is it an inferior product based on price? If I could fit it back into the box, I would return it......the odor is awful and does not dissipate as described.
I shopped around and could not find a 4 inch memory foam mattress topper for the same price anywhere. I am very happy with how comfortable and soft it makes my bed. I would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a mattress topper.
I searched everywhere for this type of product. Something that was affordable since I am retired now I live on a fixed income and this product fit the bill. The instructions were easy to understand and follow. Now I am sleeping through the night without pain. I would recommend this topper to anyone who is having problems sleeping because of a painful hip or back.
I recently purchased the topper to firm up and level out an older mattress. It came when you said it would; I took it out of the wrapping and let it 'sit' as instructed and eventually I could unfold it and put it in place. Immediately, we could feel the comfort. We bought a similar mattress cover for my father years ago and he loved it. His lasted a long time - hopefully this one will too. The only problem I foresee is getting the dogs off the bed so we can get in. Should the mattresses in the guest rooms need help, this is a quick, economical solution.
Overstock.com shipped this product quickly. It arrived in just a few days. After arrival it took a few hours for it to open up on its own. You do need clean floor space sized to fit! On the third day it was ready to be placed on the bed, after the original smell disappeared to a tolerable level. It has been a month now and there is no foam smell left. I recommen this 4 inch memory foam mattress pad. It added so much to the look of our bed. It made the bed look and feel comfortable. I give it a five star rating. Thank you overstock.com. This was a great price for a great product!
Extremely comfortable; I put it on a new pillow top mattress and it made a big difference. Definitely get the extra deep pocket sheets. Another reviewer pointed it out, good tip. A great value, arrived in about 2 days. Very pleased with it. Have had about a month and really just now adjusted to it. Sleep great, no aches. No reason not to try it for the value.... Peace.
Before I decided to purchase this mattress top, I read through the reviews first and was sold by what others had to say. I must admit, the reviews were true and I want to add to all the good comments/posts. With all of my back & neck problems, it is a blessing to be able to wake up in the morning ache-free!
I am so happy about making this purchase. After several years of waking in severe pain, due to injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident, I am finally able to reduce the amount of medication I have had to take. I no longer wake up several times during the night and feel better throughout the day. I have a sleep number bed but was unable to tolerate any setting prior to placing the memory foam on top of it. The pad does have a distinctive odor but this has dissipated over time. My only regret is that I waited so long to make the purchase.
