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 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!
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 couldn't wait to receive this topper and when it came (several days sooner than estimated) I couldn't wait to lay on it. It's about a 30 pound box so I needed help getting it upstairs. I unwrapped it and after reading other reviews, I expected a nasty smell but there was none. It unrolled easily and I immediately put it in the cover. As hard as it was, I allowed it to expand for about an hour. I covered the entire topper/cover and our mattress with our own mattress pad, placed the sheets and jumped in. HEAVENLY! I have spent more time than I care to admit in my new bed. My chronic back pain is greatly helped and it didn't take ten minutes to stand up straight like it usually does in the morning. The only problem I could see someone having is how high my bed is now. I am 5'7" and I have to stand on my toes to get up there but once I'm in, I don't get out. Our mattress is about 5 years old so there are minimal dips but this does not effect the quality or quantity of sleep I get now. Buy it! You'll be glad you did!
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.
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!
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.
I purchased this mattress topper after sleeping on something similar that topped an air mattress while staying with family. My mattress at home is in need of replacement, but there are so many choices...so this was an inexpensive way to see if the memory foam would be a good option once I decide to buy new. I really like this topper, it is very comfortable and it is not too thick, so my sheets fit over it and my mattress with no problem. I don't know that it would be as comfortable without another mattress of some kind underneath it. I bought this based on reviews, and most specifically for the cover. The cover is not a full cover, but more like a mattress pad-type cover. It has an elastic border, and if you are attempting to move the topper around, the cover will shift and will not stay on. If it were a zippered cover it would be an exceptional buy. The only benefit I see to this cover is that it adds just a bit more padding and a bit more protection from damage to the topper itself during use. On the whole, I am very happy with this product, and am seriously considering buying another for my aging futon mattress which is not as comfortable as it used to be and is used by guests. I am hesitant to buy a thicker topper in the event my sheets will not fit over it, but the 2" model is a very good option and well worth the price.
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!
