This is one of THE best purchases that I have made in a long time. I always believed that a very firm mattress was the best thing for one's posture: wrong. So I decided to check out a additional, softer alternative, and found one in this product. Please don't be put off by the "egg-crate" design - this actually is a heat dispensing design element - plus the actual feel is very comfortable, yet supportive. The cover is an important addition with this bed topper as it wraps around the top and all sides. And go for the 4" depth, as anything less would not be giving you a totally good night's sleep.
When I unpacked the topper there was a slight odor, but after a day of airing, there was no noticeable smell at all. And the only negative is that the overall mattress height is substantially increased.
A really terrific product and worth every penny.
I bought a new bed and thought that a firm would help me not toss and turn all night like I did and also help my back pain I would wake up with in the mornings. After spending a lot of money over the last few months on mattress pads, nothing helped. This was my last attempt as I was ready to just throw away the 700 bucks I spent on my bed for a new one. It was that bad. I read the reviews and decided to try this. It arrived in about 5 days. I immediately unwrapped it and put it on my bed. It was HEAVY, but I may be weak. No smell at all and it fit nice on top of my bed and gave it a lot more height then I thought it would. The cover is really nice! I have not slept this well ever! It's soft but still has a lot of firm to it. It just conforms to your body in every way that it should. I used to wake up with my blankets and sheets all over the place, flipped, etc, from tossing. When I wake up now it doesn't even look like anyone slept in my bed. Best purchase I have made in a long time!!!
This item is very similar to one sold at Costco for twice the price. I slept on it last night for the first time and really liked it! Made a big difference in my plain old mattress that now hurts my back. Don't be fooled though, it does have a strong odor to it when you first take it out of the bag. It even states on the instruction sheet that it does have a strong smell and recommends letting it air out for 24-48 hours. I stretched it out along my bed, put the ceiling fan on and opened the windows. After about 6-7 hours I really couldn't smell it anymore and used it that night. No gel beads mess like the ones at Costco. Simply, easy, well worth the price. Note: It is FLAMMABLE. Because it's polyurethane, it will ignite easily, states that on the packaging as well. Important for some people, especially if this is for a child's bed or people who smoke.
I ordered this for our king size bed because my husband and I both have back pain and problems with pinched nerves. I read a few negative reviews about the odor of the mattress and I must say there was only a very faint slight chemical odor. We laid it out as directed and it puffed to the required thickness within a few hours and the slight odor faded considerably. We put it on our bed and slept on it after having it laid out for about 12 hours. We love it, it is wonderful! It is a very reasonable price for the quality you receive. My husband is very pleased with it too. It fit our bed exactly and was easy to put on the bed and cover with the feathertop fitted cover. We did not have one problem with it despite other people's complaints. I will say that it takes getting used to when it comes to making love on it. But all in all, we love it!
I wasn't quite sure how it would feel with the egg-crate style as my last topper was flat, but this is way better. I feel like I'm being supported more fully as a result of the design. Also, it is infinitely cooler than my last topper! I no longer feel like I'm sweating to death. Great solution to purchasing a Tempurpedic or other expensive memory foam bed.
Love this topper. For the money, it is a good buy. It barley had an odor that was gone within 24 hours. just unroll it and let it air out and come to it's full shape before putting on the bed. I put it on my son's bed and he loves it ! Lot's cheaper than a new mattress. You'll need deep pocket sheets.
We currently own a sleep number bed and could not find a comfortable adjustment for it. We went to the sleep number store and the rep wanted to sell us a $***+ 2.5" memory foam topper. We gracefully left the store and found this one. We figured why not give it a try, half the cost and almost twice the thickness. It was great. My wife who likes a really soft mattress was very happy, and I who likes a firmer but comfortable mattress was happy. It made our expensive uncomfortable mattress VERY comfortable. So much so that I softened my side and my wife firmed hers up a little and now we dont have such a big difference in mattress heights. As far as getting hot and the pad not breathing we had no problems at all. It was very comfortable temperature wise.
Two notes to mention. Many people said that the mattress had a chemical smell and walked down the mattress. We had no smell at all, and I mean at all. We pulled it out of the package and let it sit for the rest of the day (6 hours) and then made the bed and went to sleep. They do say to leave it sit out for a day or so but we had seen no reason to wait. As far as walking down the mattress. We never had seen it happen to our bed at all. It stays in place pretty well.
For what is it worth, this was worth every penny spent and then some. We could not have imaged how much of a difference it has made.
I was skeptical because there were no reviews when I bought this topper, but I am so glad I did!! My foam mattress was very firm and only 8 inches deep so it looked strange on my bedframe. I was looking for something to add depth and make my bed a little softer. This topper is heaven. It is perfect for those that like the firmness of a foam mattress with the plushness of a pillowtop. However, it can be a little warm. It is not a problem for me, because I am naturally cold blooded, but even I have noticed it being somewhat hot especially on hot summer nights in Texas.
Writing a review on a mattress topper is tricky because it is so subjective, so having said this...let me say that this is my second one I purchased. The first one was well made, but just way to soft for my comfort. This one is the firm model and this topper is also quality made. It arrived quickly and was easy to put on to my bed. There wasn't any noticeable odor and it quickly took its shape from being rolled up tightly into a box. My first nights sleep was a huge improvement from the soft one I had been using. I prefer a more firm sleeping surface and this one was much closer to "firm" than my first one. I wouldn't classify this as "firm" when compared to a mattress labeled "firm", this just is less "squishy" than my previous topper. Overall, I am very pleased that I purchased this and feel that for the price, it was a great value.
I use to have a 4-inch memory foam mattress. I had to remove it from my bed because it made my bed too high, so I bought this one. I've slept on this for 2 nights now, and it is just as comfortable and comparable to my 4-inch one. Only this one stays cooler because of the gel incorporated into this mattress. I would definely recommend this one over others I have read about.
I ordered a full size for my granddaughter and it arrived very quickly. One corner of the box was extremely wet, but the contents were unaffected. The gel foam component is wonderful over a firm mattress. One surprise is that the cover came in a second package and does not surround the entire topper, only the tops and sides, similar to a mattress pad. I was told that the cover was not removable and should only be spot washed. That is not the case. It is easily removed and is machine washable. However, because it doesn't fully surround the topper, it has a tendency to shift from side to side. Still, the cover has a lovely, soft top surface. A second surprise is that there are elastic straps at each corner of the cover to attach under the mattress so the topper stays in place. I've never had a topper move on the mattress, so this may not be a necessary feature, but it should be noted. The full size was very generous, perhaps 2 inches longer than the mattress it is covering. The solid foam pad can also be reversed and is of a very high quality.
I am not a memory foam mattress person... my bed at home is a conventional spring bed. However, we needed a pad to go over the cushions in our travel trailer dinette when it was converted to a bed. The cushions were firm, which we liked, but we thought it needed a bit of softness. We ordered the 4" gel memory foam with the fiber mattress topper. The only negative I was concerned about was the cover. I hadn't realized that it was microfiber cover. I was worried this would be too hot. However, we have been using it to camp since April and have not had trouble with it being too warm to sleep on so far. (I usually have hot flashes so I expect to be warm at some point in the night.) This has not been unacceptable. I would prefer a cotton top but the microfiber seems to be working just fine.
I purchased this in the soft option, i have always used a feather bed but have gotten tired of fluffing and flipping and when my last one wasnt fluffing as much i went on a search. I found this memory foam 4 inch and loved the option of the soft, when i get into bed its almost like sleeping on a pillow, my mattress was just to hard for my liking but this fits the bill , no more feather beds for me !!
