I used to wake up everyday with aches in my neck and lower back. I am only 30 but I felt like I was 90, all crotchety and stiff. I was involved in a serious car accident and have always needed 15 pillows to find comfort even when sitting up. I am exaggerating but you get the point. I always hurt. We had purchased a new pillow top mattress thinking that would help. It was quite firm and I did not want to deal with the hassle of finding another expensive failure. I resorted to these toppers. I purchased 2 of the Slumber Solutions Highloft Supreme Memory Foam toppers in the standard King size (one 3" and one 4"). I couldn't decide after reading the reviews so I bought both....If you are trying to decide between the 3" and the 4" Let me help you out. READ THIS. Both had a smell...nothing to run away from...just a little like fresh rubber and Pine-sol. Most of it went away by the 2nd day. Surprisingly the 4" was less smelly than the 3". Let me tell you - There is a HUGE difference between the softness/squishyness between the 3" and the 4" heights although everything else is the same (density, size, etc). The 3" provides cushion but nothing ultra plush. It provides extra comfort but you can still feel the hard bed through the bottom of the topper. The 4" is the ultimate in comfort. It is super thick and you CAN NOT feel the hard mattress underneath. I was able to put the 4" on the floor and not feel the floor. You could feel the floor through the 3". I never would have thought that 1" would make that much difference but IT DOES! It is unusual because the 4" is soooo soft but yet my back doesn't sink into a hole. I tried it with the fingers up and with the fingers down and I prefer them up. I feel like they are holding me up everywhere they touch my body -back of the neck, shoulder blades, lower back, even the back of my legs, hammys, and calves.. I didn't think I would like it. I have never been an egg crate kind of gal but this is different. I absolutely love to cuddle into my bed and rub my feet back and forth giving me a little massage right before I drift off into bliss. ...I guess this is what people mean by sleeping on air. I never understood them or what they meant when they said that. It is really nice. I seriously ask my husband every morning "How did we live without this?" He agrees. We have never had so much comfort out of an item that cost so little. I needed soft cushion with good support and the 4" is the answer. Both the 3" and the 4" are GREAT products and I would recommend both. We use the 3" king -cut into 2 twins- for my 3 year old son and also the guest bed. Both beds were hard as cement and it was actually nicer to sleep on the floor before. Topper sizing was perfect standard King makes 2 twins- just cut with sharp scissors. Now with the toppers they are quite comfy. My son no longer climbs out of his bed to sleep on the floor. My guest also commented that his bed was tremendously more comfortable too. He slept on the bed before the topper arrived and then after I placed it on the bed. NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE> So, in conclusion, if you are trying to decide between the 3" and the 4" and you are looking for squishy, supportive comfort GO WITH THE 4". If you need to save a few dollars then go with the 3" but I can almost guarantee that you will wish you had spent the few extra dollars for the 4" right after you receive the 3. Do yourself a favor and do it right the first time BUY THE 4 TOPPER.
I dont think I've ever left a review for any kind of product, however....this was the BEST purchase I've made all year. My husband is the biggest skeptic and believes everything is a ploy to get our money. When I told him I purchased this mattress topper, he said "just throwing your money away, you know its not going to work". WELL WELL WELL, we have BOTH admitted that this is BY FAR THE MOST COMFORTABLE mattress topper I've ever had. I put my nephew down to sleep on the bed, where he would only sleep 1 hour at a time, he slept for 3 hours! I'm a busy person, who runs off very minimal sleep maybe 3-4 hours a night, and this has made a BIG difference in my sleeping pattern. I'm now thinking about purchasing this mattress topper for the pull out bed in the living room! I'm sure our guests will appreciate it. I'm sleeping more soundly, more comfortably, not waking up tossing and turning ever 30 mins, and my husband and I are both noticing the differene in our energy levels. We now wake up refreshed and READY. Where as we had to literally push each other off the bed to get up for work! GREAT GREAT GREAT! I can't rave enough :-)
I generally don't take the time to review things but in this case, I must.
This was hands down the best money I ever spent
. I was diagnosed with severe RA a year ago, I was sleeping on a 15 year old mattress I couldn't afford to replace. Trying to sleep was agony, it even felt as though sleeping on my side was causing nerve damage in my hands, the more exhausted I became flip flopping all night long, the more I flared, in short I was miserable and barely functioning.
I dreamed of owing a tempurpedic but on disability who can afford that?
I saw the toppers read reviews and picked this 4.5 with cover.
The cover is EXCELLENT quality. The topper has given me the most comfort, the best rest I've ever had.
Back in the day I owned a mattress that cost more than what a lot of people drove. It wasn't as good as my 15 year old mattress with this on it. Strait up. Looooooooooove it.
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.
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.
We researched this product for months before buying. We are very happy with the product. There was a slight odor when we first got it, which took a few days to go away, and is completely gone now. Only took approx. an hour to flatten out from the roll that it was in when it shipped. It took a few nights to get used to it because it is so different than what we were used to, but in the end we are very satisfied.
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 !!
