I read some of the more negative comments after I had already purchased the Mattress Topper. I read about strange odors, and the queen not fitting a queen mattress. I must say however that the item not only fit and the smell very minimal and gone overnight, but is also so very comfortable. I actually laid it out on my bed to allow it to expand. Shortly after it did I laid down just to try it out and woke up a little over an hour later. Excellent value and really, REALLY comfortable.
