This mattress topper is exactly what the description says- it is NOT memory foam, and it is 3" thick. The photo shows it as being white, but it's actually just typical, yellow foam color. It's just regular old foam- nothing special, and that is exactly what we were looking for. My fiance and I recently bought a new, latex-foam mattress. We tend to gravitate toward extremely plush-topped mattresses, but my back unfortunately needs something much firmer these days. Our brand new mattress, which felt fine in the store, felt as hard as a rock in our bedroom and made my hips feel lousy. We needed something which would allow us to keep the firm back support but soften things up for our hips and shoulders JUST A LITTLE. This topper did just that. It works great for me but my guy is still getting used to it. It's also probably better for back sleepers than side sleepers (I'm currently trying to convert). Comfy enough for stomach sleeping without a pillow (firm but ok). It doesn't seem to sleep any hotter than our old, non-foam topped mattress either- maybe just a degree or two. It comes tightly packed in a large square box, and needs to sit out for awhile for the flattened parts to expand. There's a foam-ish smell, but it's nothing too terrible (I have a sensitive nose), and the scent has dissipated after a few weeks. It has fully expanded. We did not get a cover for it, but we placed it directly on top of the mattress and two stretchy mattress covers plus one fitted sheet have kept it in place just fine. Fits our queen mattress just right. We probably could have found a cheaper regular foam topper elsewhere, but we live in the Boston area where everything is more expensive than this topper and driving around is a huge pain in the neck, so we just ordered one here. It probably cost a little more but it saved us our sanity in the end. Again- it's nothing special, but it's perfect for just that extra hint of padding of you're trying to correct a too-firm mattress, especially if you don't want or need memory foam.

If you're looking to add some "give" to a hard mattress, this is not what you want. It is just as firm as the mattress and really hurt our backs trying to sleep on it. I would love to return it but I can't get it back into the box it came in. If you're looking for something to shore up a saggy old mattress then this might be for you but we were disappointed.
First let me say this very firm. This topper is perfect for placing on an old worn out mattress or using for futons beds. I purchased it for my firm mattress to make it more comfortable. It is too firm for me. I have used featherbeds and memory foam so wanted to try regular foam. This does not cradle your body like memory foam. The quality is good but know it is firm. This topper fits my king bed with overhang. You will need deep pocket sheets. Guess I'll keep looking.
The foam is supportive and was the perfect size to cut two large rounds for my dog beds. The stuffing they had got all bunched up and looked uncomfortable so I replaced it with this foam - perfect! And half the cost of two new dog beds!
Wanted a "topper" for our sleeper couch and this seems to be working really well. Does not seem to squash down and is just the right thickness to make the thin mattress on the sleeper more comfortable. For the purpose we had in mind, this is working out just great.
If you move, like we did, and gets soiled from the truck , it's a drag! You can't get the stain out and it's too embarrassing to have a dirty topper, of you change your sheets in front of anyone or the bed is unmade while your washing sheets. It doesn't fit inside a duevet. I prefer Comfort Dreams Mem-Cool 4" mattress topper, as it has a soft zip up washable cover included, and is cooler to sleep on!
This topper is exactly what it says 3 inches of foam. It was not comfortable and added nothing to my current mattress. If you just want extra foam go to an upholstery shop and you can probably get it much cheaper. I will be sending this back.
