My hips, shoulders and back had been aching every morning for several years when I got up and I new I needed a new mattress but couldn't really afford one. I bought a Feather Bed Mattress Topper last year which helped but still woke up aching. I had been researching Mattress Toppers and found this one and because of the price, I bought it.........I love it!!!!!!...........I wake up with no aches or pains every morning and I can't say enough good things about it.
I was excited to get this item. Opened up and the sheet of paper with details described it as polyurethane foam. It is advertised as memory foam. That made me a little concerned as it was advertised as memory foam. This was a 5 inch foam. I tried sleeping on it the first night and woke up covered in sweat. Tried to convince myself that it was just getting used to it. I bought a quilted mattress pad to cover it too. Got back to sleep only to wake up again at 4am totally drenched, nightie and all. I took it off the bed and the very next morning it was returned. I would not recommend this to any one, as it is just to hot ! I am a large person and it did not support my body properly either. Love Overstock though. Very seldom am I not satisfied with the merchandise. This one is a dud as far as I am concerned.
I ordered this for my queen bed, but it was a few inches too small. I knew it would be impossible to get it back into a box to return, so I decided to put it on my daughter's full size bed. It was a little too big, so I cut it down to fit her bed better. She doesn't really like it very much either. I read a million reviews before deciding on this one and had high hopes, but I'm very disappointed.
My daughter's bed is an antique with a custom fitted mattress. As it was always in her grandparents' guest bedroom and never really used on a daily basis (and due to the fact the mattress must be custom fitted!) we decided to just cover the original mattress with a mattress cover and let it go. Sadly, it was just too firm and she was never happy sleeping on it. Enter this mattress topper! Wow! What a wonderful difference! The comfort level of this topper is terrific. The only down side is that, due to the "odd" size of the existing mattress, this topper is a little smaller. No worries for now...we'll see how it works as she ages and grows.
I have a normal size bed mattress. This topper is too short & not wide enough for a queen sized bed. I ordered a queen topper. This is not my first topper in fact since all our beds have them and we replace them after a few years (because they do not hold up, any of them) I decided to buy from a different company with the reviews I read. This may work for a "newbie" out there but two smaller adults "spooning" does not work...you roll or sink to the middle and have to climb out of the hole to get out of bed. Thank goodness we are in good shape and fairly small people or you might need to call for help. So I would say if your looking for height, one person only sleeping on it and you don't mind a full month of chemical smell....this could be for you. I will be going back to the other company I have purchased from and getting a 3 inch that is much denser than this lofty less dense 5 inch. Makes the bed nice and high, but watch out when any weight enters. BTW....forget getting intimate on it....you will feel like your in one of those kid's bouncy toys trying to get your "footing.."
I bought this for my son's bed and he absolutely loves it! He is sleeping much better since I ordered this item for him. A family member slept in his bed one evening and asked me the next morning where I ordered this mattress topper from. I would (and have) definitely recommend this product.
