I have been looking for a topper for a mattress i bought 6 months ago that is a bit too firm.( i should have gotten the pillow top). i tried the foam ones, and a fiber topper. the fiber one had such soft fluff that i sunk into it and it was not soft, the foam made me sink as well and was warm.. so i saw this and decided to try it. i received it yesterday and i was very happy sleeping last night. after putting the sheet on the bed it looked and felt like i had a pillow top. the quilted squares are packed tight and give just the right amount of cushion. i love the thick strong elastic bands too! it was priced well and i have ended my search!
