I kept waking up with back and hip pain after purchasing my expensive new mattress. So first I tried a feather bed topper which just squished down to nothing after a few nights and then I bought a temperpedic foam topper at Costco. It was too hot, too squishy, and totally uncomfortable. Then I tried this Latex Mattress Topper. I love it. You just sink into it, with out it being too soft. No more hip or lower back pain. My 200 pound husband who likes hard mattresses likes it as well.
