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!!!
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!
This is our second one - we bought a too hard mattress for home and this saved it - then we had to move temporarily for my husband's job and moved into a very nice furnished apartment - but we were there 4 months when I went home for a visit (slept in our bed @home) and realized just how awful the bed at our temp apt was - bought another one of these and I am sleeping great!! You could put this thing on the floor and sleep great! Didn't smell - unrolled it at 3m and put it on bed at 6pm - slept on it that night. Can't say enough - you won't regret this buy! Even my husband who like firm - loves this - I like soft and it is great for us both.
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.
OK: so I waited over 6 months to write this review, be sure I got it right, because beds are IMPORTANT!
To start with I ordered a bed from another online company (sorry O, but you didn't have what I needed at the time.) Here comes Goldilocks: the bed was TOO SOFT! I took advantage of the company's one time exchange option, and the 2nd mattress was TOO HARD! Like, "OUCH!" hard. No more exchange options! YIKES! Bought this topper, aired it out for a full 4 days ( I am crazy sensitive to odors and it does have a very strong musty rubber smell at first) but I kept folding it over, side to side, then head to foot; flipped it and did it again. That way every side was exposed multiple times to the air. I kept the bedroom door shut, the windows open, and by that 4th day all was well. I added a delicious thick 100 % cotton bed pad, and I tell you, I am out before I fully hit the bed. I have back problems and this topper on the very firm mattress has made a major difference in the morning.
If you have never owned or tried a memory foam bed, dont order without the experience. They are a world of difference from the conventional Innerspring, and not for everyone! As a heavy person I felt sucked in by them, so I went with the innerspring mattress, but goofed and got one harder than the one I tested. My fault. By ordering wonderful this gel pad, it gave me back the level of plush that I lost by ordering the wrong mattress. In the end I actually think it worked out perfectly, as there is a fabulous based of support, and the topper prevents me from getting pressure points.
Ironically, less than year after getting it all right, I need to move to a place that has a smaller bedroom, and so will be downsizing the mattress; and I fully intend to reproduce the combination in a smaller mattress; it's just that good! NOTE: contrary to some of the comments I read, I do NOT find the gel topper to be "Hot" though I am a very hot sleeper, so I would not hesitate to recommend this over the conventional memory foam toppers, which do tend to heat you up overnight. This one does seem to be far cooler during the night! Especially with the thick cotton pad Ive added.
It was also completely manageable and not the heavy monster I have seen others complain about in these reviews. Rather than the rolled configuration some have described, mine came compressed and in a box. I suspect that was a help in carrying it through the house. However, I did go to the trouble of waiting to open it until I got it up on the bed, so I didnt have to deal with it flopping around in an attempt to lift it.** That may have been what made the difference.
Sweet Dreams, y'all!
** To keep any dirt on the box from soiling my new bad pad, I spread a clean extra sheet out on the bed, unwrapped the topper, removed the packaging, then folded it in half, pushed the sheet to the center, flipped the pad over the centerpoint, folded it in the other direction, and pulled the sheet out from under the center-fold! VOILA!!!! CLEAN MATTRESS PAD!
I first ordered this foam topper in 2008 for the guest bedroom full size bed that had a very cheap mattress. Shortly after receiving the topper I began sleeping in the bed and have continued to up until a week ago when I switched to a queen size bed. I immediately ordered this topper for that bed! The foam topper I purchased in 2008 has held up so well that it is now in the guest bedroom again. Definitely worth the money. Very comfortable and the perfect amount of softness with support for me. There is an odor when you first open the packaging. I rolled it out on the bed, turned on a fan and sprayed febreeze on the topper. After a couple of hours, I flipped the topper and sprayed febreeze again. Slept on the topper later that night and did not notice any kind of chemical odor.
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 like to do research prior to buying anything. That "homework" payed off here, for sure! I learned that the heavier you are, the higher density you need in a memory foam mattress. We are both over 200#, so just zeroed in on the 4 # density mattress toppers. Definitely wanted one that wouldn't make us too hot sleeping on it,
so researched that and learned that the memory foam w/ gel was good to keep things cooler...so that became a must, too. Wanted the sheets to fit over it, so decided 3" thick should do well. That narrowed down the search...and after reading all the reviews, we decided that this baby was THE ONE for us! Delighted that lack of odor was mentioned in the reviews, too. That was a "bonus", in my opinion! The homework payed off...we LOVE this mattress topper! I have a feeling that we will be ordering another one for the guest bedroom very soon, too. Put your priorities in order and stick to them...you'll be VERY glad that you did. Happy shopping!
The topper comes in two pieces each 1" thick: A Memory foam base and the gel topper which is like memory foam with gel. It also comes with a cotton mattress pad cover to hold the topper onto the mattress. I rolled it out and aired it for a night before installing and once on the bed could not detect any smell once installed. It is super comfortable and really molds to my body. It's also cool which is important to me since I have hot flashes sometimes at night. This topper exceeded my expectations and I am more than happy with it.
The only complaint is that it doesn't fit the mattress PERFECTLY. But this pretty much turned my bed into a coma-inducing device. It does keep you cool (i paired it with a cooling comforter from ****). AND it doesn't fall flat.
If you put it on your bed immediately, just note that it takes between 2 days and a week for the mattress to completely expand and level out. I also insist that you get DEEP POCKET fitted sheets so that the topped isnt compressed. Its firm and plush at the same time.
I had back surgery several months ago and was still not able to sleep through the night on my conventional pillow top mattress. The physician I work for suggested I look into memory foam. The rest is history. My husband is so skeptical of any online purchase is more pleased than myself.
I work nights and had trouble sleeping during the day plus my mattress is really old and that wasn't helping. I looked around and read all of the reviews and decided to give this (Simmons Curv 3-inch gel memory foam mattress topper with the Egyptian cotton cover) a try. I am so pleased with it. I had no idea it would be this good. I'm not sore all over anymore. I don't have to use a million pillows to prop up on. I am using the thinest pillow I have because I don't really need one...I kid you not! It is the best purchase I have ever made. I would recommend this to anyone. I am absolutely in love with my bed now.
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.
We no longer find ourselves tossing around and changing position all night to get off pressure spots like sore shoulders and hips. Adult son had somewhat same issue with shoulders, and is in process of ordering for himself. Would definitely recommend.
I'm giving this four stars because the quality and price of the product is great. The one star deduction is because of my personal experience, which is so subjective.
I have a very hard mattress (we jokingly call it "the slab") and my back loves it. But, sometimes my pressure points (hips, shoulders) would ache in the morning, so I thought this would be perfect. It's just too much foam for me. It took a solid two weeks to get used to the topper, and during that time, I had massive back soreness. Since then, I have gotten used to it but I feel like it sometimes still gives me soreness and it is a little warm, if you are sensitive to that. The foam has stood up great over the past two years, though, and I'm itching to replace it, but really don't *need* to.
I have "Slumber Solutions Gel Highloft 2-inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper with Waterproof Cover" on another bed in my house which is thinner and has the egg crate texture and I love it. When I replace the 3 incher, it will be with this product.
4 out of 5 stars. At first, I felt it was just what I wanted; really soft, easy on hips, shoulders, etc. and really comfortable. Virtually no odor at all, and ready to use after setting out on the bed for a couple of hours. The cover is a really excellent product, beautifully made, yet strong in the stitching, with a strong elastic hem to fit tightly and well under the mattress. The 2" thick white memory foam is a couple of inches less around the sides than the 1" gel foam layer, which was no problem, as the two layers remain pretty much in place, and don't seem to interfere with the making of the bed. Ah-h-h, love the softness.
However, as I found out during the night, I felt a little warm. Too many covers? I replace the down comforter with a blanket. Better. Trying to get back to sleep, I realize the heat's from underneath, and eventually reach the conclusion that 2 inches of regular memory foam on top of my supposedly cool-foam new mattress, before reaching the gel foam layer, is too much of the old memory foam problem of heat retention. It's too bad that I didn't realize that, before deciding on what I thought was an ideal, 3" solution. The gel foam layer is pretty soft in itself, and a 2" gel foam topper might have been perfect; I may get a 2" " sculptured" (deep textured) gel topper for additional air flow to replace the regular memory foam layer and insure adequate coolness.
My husband refers to me as the Princess and the Pea, because I am very picky about beds. I am a side-sleeper, so I want a bed that protects my pressure points while also providing firm support and maintaining its shape to keep my spine aligned. It's a tough balance to find. We purchased a high-end mattress that was too firm. I tried an Eco-latex topper, but my husband and I were both miserable; under our body heat, it provided no support. This topper is wonderful! It's cheesy to say, but it really does feel like you're sleeping on a cloud, all while having really good support. This princess is finally comfortable!
Very happy with this purchase. I recently purchased a brand new mattress that was giving me some pressure-point pain as I am exclusively a side sleeper. I decided to try this gel memory foam topper as I am a hot sleeper and heard that regular memory foam is very hot. The topper arrived quickly and all wrapped up small in a box. It expanded immediately upon removing the plastic wrap and I was so happy that the smell was minimal. I am very sensitive to smells and this was not nearly as bad as I have heard memory foam smelling. I had to get right down next to it to smell it, and it was faint. I left it out overnight and put it on my bed the next day. It fit right to the edge. Note that I spent the extra money on the topper that came with the cover, and that was kind of a waste, because while it fit when I first tried it, I decided to wash it before putting it on the bed to sleep on, and even though I dried on low, it shrunk. It just *barely* fits now, and a seem is up where my feet hit and I can feel it sometimes through my sheets. I had a little aches and pains the first night just because I wasn't used to the foam, but after a few days it was fine. Give yourself a week to get used to it. The foam is nice and cool, doesn't smell (smell was totally gone after 24 hours) and it's easy to flip around (some people say the foam toppers are like quicksand and it's hard to move--not the case with this). I am able to sleep on my sides now without pain in my hips and I love sinking into the bed a little with this topper. Highly recommended!
This topper is truly a dream to sleep on. My husband and I spent over 2K on a wonderful cushion topper mattress! Although we loved the bed we found it to be a little too hard. We tried a couple of different toppers and were not happy with any of them. We decided to try this topper and have both slept like the dead every night! My husband no longer wakes up with a soar back or joint pain. I suffer from insomnia and have been sleeping much better since sleeping on the topper. This topper also stays cool all night, no overheating. There is a slight smell on opening but nothing to overbearing and disappears within a day or two. I would nightly recommend this topper.
