my husband has a bad back so when we bought a new mattress and box spring last year we got a very expensive firm mattress. Well it was too firm for me so I've been sleeping in the recliner. He finally admitted it was too firm for him but we didn't want to go buy a new one so when I saw this gell filled topper I was so happy.....back to sleeping in my bed and hubby is happy too! Very nice and the price was nice too but I would be happy at twice the price. Great value!
