I ordered this mattress topper because I was hoping to find some relief for my back and shoulders. I have had arthritis in both shoulders and lower back and I could only sleep a few hours at a time without having to flip over to try and find a more comfortable position. At times I was flipping every twenty minutes or so. Needless to say, I wasn't sleeping very well. This topper has changed all that. From the very first night, I have been able to sleep much more comfortably. I find that I don't wake up throughout the night like before. I sleep much more soundly and I wake up without the aches and pains that I used to. We have a really good mattress, but it wasn't enough. Now with the topper, it is not a GREAT mattress. This product is worth a lot more. It was everything I had hoped for and more!
