This topper really made the difference on my futon. When I was looking for a futon, I had a hard time finding one locally. I had to order one, and I could only read reviews to see how good they are. I could not really feel if it was soft or not. I ordered from the largest retailer in the country. When I received the futon, it was not really soft. This topper really made the difference. Now I think I like the futon more than my own bed. Its really soft, and very comfortable. Don't be cheap!!! If you can't afford this topper then save up for it, or you will spend twice when the cheap one breaks down.
