I hadn't slept in my bed for two months after being discharged from surgery and had to sleep in my recliner. I decided to give this a try and wished I had thought of it sooner. I feel no pain as I did laying on my regular mattress. I was able to use the topper the night we recieved it as there was no odor what so ever when we open it and layed it on the bed. The price was ideal as I had priced the 2" around town and they were far more expensive than XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX. Another satisfied customer Overstock!!
