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 purchased this 4" memory foam mattress topper as a last effort to find something that would help me sleep better. I have been fighting a few horrible disease's called Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthristis and Chronic Fatigue for years and have never slept through the night. I'm only 44yrs old and too young to feel so old. The first time I put on my memory foam topper, I just layed there with no pain and instant relief. I didn't even get into my pajamas; because I fell asleep within minutes and to my amazement, slept all night long in the same postion. I woke up in complete shock and actually for the first time could walk to the bathroom without feeling stiff and bouncing off my furniture to just hold me up because of the pain. There's not a prescription from any of my doctor's that could have provided me with such relief. Now my condition is getting so much better because I am actually sleeping through all four stages of sleep that your body needs to repair your muscles, ligaments, tendons, not to mention your state of well being from having a great night sleep! I highly recommend this topper to everyone, especially people who suffer from insomnia caused by pain that awakens you when ever you move at night. With this topper, I find that I do not move. This is the best investment which was so cost effective, I could have ever purchased. There's not a sleeping pill in the world that can out do this topper! Thank You Overstock for saving my life. I was at a very low time in my life from suffering such chronic pain day and night. A good nights sleep keeps pain at bay during the day. WOW...what a dream come true. Sincerely, Carolyn
We purchased 2" memory foam to go on our king-sized bed. We already bought new pillow-top mattresses but they were still lacking. We were tossing and turning all night. Purchased the memory foam and WOW does it make a difference. It shipped lightening fast. The smell dissipated quickly and it took it's correct form within 2 hours. We slept on it the day it came. Would highly recommend especially if your back hurts! Great price and great quality.
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 :-)
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.
I purchased the Serta 4 inch Memory Foam back in June after hearing from my sister how her memory foam bed gave her an uninterupted sleep. Well, my husband and I did not want to spend more money on an entire new bed, so we decided to give the foam mattress a try. We both do physical work all day, and needed a good nights rest. And we definitely have gotten it with that mattress! But after the first night we thought, wouldn't it be nice to find a cover for it. So I went back on to Overstock.com, and looked. At first found nothing, then only a down cover (wouldn't work because I have allergies). Then spotted in July the Down Alternative Cover! I was so happy, but then sad because it said it was for the 3 inch foam. But I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a shot. If it fit, great, if it didn't, I would return it. Because returning anything to Overstock is painless! So I bought it. It came, my husband and I put it on, and it fit perfectly! It also looks great, and we feel much better sleeping on it, rather than just on top of the mattress alone. It does not give off heat, infact, it actually reduced the heat. We love it! It was one of the best deals I've gotten on here! Now we both sleep soundly, with no pains, because it actually gives us further cushioning! We both highly recommend this product. Great cover, and an even better deal, price wise!
I have 4 inch memory foam on every bed in my home and I have recommended to all my friends. However,although memory foam gives you a better sleep it can tend to make you warm even with a bed pad on top. Since I like to sleep in a cool environment I decided to try the Mem- Cool. What a difference! This product lives up to all it's claims. Although it cost a little more it is well worth the price . After I opened the package it only took 12 hours for the slight odor to dissipate .From now on I will only recommend 4 inch Mem-Cool Memory Foam Mattress Topper.
Rating this was hard for me. The good- it is comfortable. Especially if you like a soft topper. You sink right into this. I am very happy with the comfort. The bad- I don't think the quality is that good. If you grab ahold of it to move it too hard it will rip pieces off of it. I guess you could say its somewhat fragile, which I wasn't expecting. So, that being said, I am also concerned with how long this will last without smashing down flat and becoming useless. It doesn't seem like much more than a piece of soft foam to me. I would not label this memory foam, it is mostly just a piece of 4" soft foam. Don't confuse this with a Tempurpedic type material, cause I owned a Tempurpedic and this is nothing close to that material. If you want to add softness to your bed, and don't mind the price, I would say buy it, it will add comfort. If your big on quality and are looking for a true memory foam topper, you might not be satisfied with this. I just hope its not flattened out in a few months. If it retains its shape and comfort I'll be very satisfied with it, in the mean time I will be concerned.
IF THIS POST IS TOO LONG, SIMPLY READ THIS FIRST PORTION:IMPORTANT INFORMATION:A mattress of 3? thickness with 3lb density is wonderful for light-average individuals and will provide the comfort/support needed (approx 100-150lbs).A mattress of 3? thickness with 4lb density is ideal for light ? above average individuals, 100-200lbs.A mattress of 4? thickness with 3lb density is ONLY suitable for light individuals, or those who require a very soft mattress. If you are over 150lbs you will begin to lose needed support. If you are over 200lbs this will not provide you with the support you require and may not be appropriate for you.A mattress of 4? thickness with 4lb density is suitable for average ? husky individuals, 150-250 lbs. The extra inch (over 3?) will give you the extra needed cushion so that you don?t sink straight through the mattress and the 4lb density will provide you with the much needed support. </BR> ------------------------------------------------------ I spent a great deal of time doing research on memory foam toppers before deciding to make a purchase. I'm a very meticulous person and I like to evaluate all of my options before selecting an item, specially one over a certain price, and if I would consider it a luxury item.First off, I want to say that I have nothing but praise for this memory foam, and I will attempt to aid any person reading this in deciding whether or not this is the correct item for them.When looking at memory toppers, if you are looking for both comfort AND support, then you should automatically eliminate anything with a depth of 2.5" or lower and 5.5" and higher. (Do not choose 2.5 < or > 5.5).A thin mattress topper of below 2.5" may provide you with a comfortable feeling, but it will not provide you with the actual support you need, if you are only looking for comfort, and not physical benefit/support, then below 2.5" is for you. One caveat to this is if this mattress topper is intended for a child or very light individual, they will depress the visco-elastic material less then a (older) teenager or full grown adult, in that circumstance a mattress topper of 2.5" will be supportive/beneficial.A thick mattress topper at/over 5.5" will be quite deep and you will find that you sink into the mattress (unless you are a child or an extremely light person, below or at 100 pounds, at which point your body will not sink, but you still will not receive the appropriate support for your body). For an average weight adult, you will not find the comfort you want as your movements will be restricted and support will now become uneven as the heavier parts of your body will sink too low and you will be unable to achieve the spinal/body support that is required for a healthy nights rest.------------------------------------------------------The optimal range for thickness of a memory foam mattress is 3? - 4". This range will accommodate the standard adult build (greater then 100lbs and less then 250lbs or approximately 45kg ? 115kg, these figures are products of my own analysis and consumer reports).-If you are a light-average build, 100 ? 200 pounds, you will likely find the comfort/support you require from a 3? thick topper.-If you are average-husky, 150-250 pounds, then you should review a 4? topper to accommodate for ?sinking? into the topper.There is an overlap of 50 pounds in the weight range(s), this is on purpose as you must consider that this topper may not be used by only you, but a significant other as well.*I personally weigh 175lbs, whereas my fiancée rings in between 100-108lbs (please don?t tell her I posted her weight, hahaha). We found that the 3? topper provided excellent support/comfort for our weight ranges and have had nothing but approving responses from friends/families over the comfort of our mattress.---------------------------------------------------------Density is the second factor you must consider.3lb and 4lb is optimal density for the average consumer, someone weighting 100 ? 250 lbs and the density you require will differ based on size, obviously, the more you weigh the greater the density you will need.Avoid exceeding 5lb density as you will begin to sacrifice comfort in the memory foam topper. 5lb density is suitable for husky ? ?large? build individuals 250+ lbs, you would also look at a thicker mattress 4-5? in that weight range.---------------------------------------------------------Brand names: They actually matter for this product! Non-brand name foam mattresses have an indeterminable length of usability for their product. After reviewing an incredible amount of products from different suppliers I have found some of these products are meant to only last 1 ? 2 years, while others can last 5, 10, or 15 years. More often then not, the name brand products last longer. Overstock.com is fortunate that it has a large selection of quality toppers.----------------------------------------------------------Heat Distribution: As this mattress is not a ?vented? mattress it will trap heat a little more then an ordinary mattress topper. I have been using this on warm nights and have not found any discomfort from this small amount of added heat, in fact, as the mattress is able to retain my heat, it softens up a little more the longer I am resting on it, making my rest more on more comfortable as I lay there.----------------------------------------------------------If your partner happens to be a wrestles individual or someone who practically jumps into bed at night, then this mattress topper will help reduce the vibrations you feel and will allow you to sleep better without being disturbed. I speak as a perpetrator of literally ?jumping? into bed every night.-----------------------------------------------------------Washing/Cleaning:Good luck. Don?t get it dirty in the first place! Use a damp rag to wipe off any spills that may get into it. Never lay it directly on your floor (especially carpet), it will grab EVERY piece of dirt/filth there is and you will NEVER get it out.?oops------------------------------------------------------------------Personal Opinion:Overall I couldn?t be happier with my purchase. I haven?t slept this well in years! I have been having a very bad problem with being unable to wake up in the morning for the past few years. I have 3 alarm clocks (yes, 3 individual alarm clocks, 2 of them with 2 separate alarms, so 5 alarms), my cell phone with 3 alarms, and my computer with a morning alarm. In total, 9 alarms go off in the morning, and I have a tendancy of sleeping through ALL of them, even when they are at full blast. I had not been getting a real rest when I slept! To make matters worse, my partner moves around a lot, as such, I haven?t been getting a really good deep sleep in years, with minimal REM cycles?(dreams)?I have been exhausted constantly. All of that changed when I slept on this topper. For the first time in 4 years I am having vivid dreams that I remember when I wake up, this is an indication of a deep sleep, which your body/brain needs to recharge! Additionally, I wake up immediately at the sound of just one alarm at half volume! As I?m no longer thoroughly exhausted I can actually get up in mornings and have been making it on time to all of my appointments, and scheduled events! I can?t believe how much the memory foam changed my life!Do yourself a favor and BUY IT!------------------------------------------------------------------------*1 last note, when the package arrives, OPEN IT IMMEDIATELY and let it decompress/air out. Ours took only 1 hour to fully decompress as it was only in shipping for a few days. The majority of the smell left after a few hours and wasn?t bad to begin with. The odor completely left after 2 days, but was mild enough that we slept on it with no complaint the very first night we received it.
this is the best topper. it is my 3rd purchase. i even bought 1 for the camper. it's like sleeping on a giant marshmellow and you just snuggle in with all the support. best nights slepp. you dont want to get out of bed in the morning. it's fabulous. holds it's shape. great quality. highly recommend. my 1st one is 4yrs old and still like new. will never sleep on anything else. i have severe arthritis and cannot sleep on a regular mattress, this topper lets me sleep all night long even on my back which i could never do before. its fabulous. i give it a 5 star rating.
I bought this ventilated mattress foam topper because I have back pain and need good support but I also get hot easily at night and needed a good mattress topper that wouldn't get too hot. When I got it, I it took some work to get it out of the packaging, it was air-vacuumed and cold, but once I got it out of the packaging and laid it out to air out, it fluffed up rather quick.
After the the topper had fluffed up and air out, I put it on the bed and once I laid down, I did not want to get up. It is so comfortable!!! Because of the ventilation, it doesn't trap your body heat so it stays nice through the entire night.
It has made a huge difference in the quality of sleep I get with this topper. I can't sleep without it now! I highly recommend this!
I have had back problems for the past four years after an injury and have had two surgeries and am about to have a third. I have a very difficult time sleeping and toss and turn all night long as I cannot get comfortable. I saw this item and at the price I couldn't afford NOT to try it. I listened to the advice of most reviewers and ordered the next larger size and cut it to fit (use the excess for whatever you choose). I got my mattress pad within 3 days and the first day I had it I took a quick 20 minute nap, before I had to leave for work. Normally, I wouldn't be able to go to sleep knowing that I only had such a short amount of time, but I fell asleep within 5 minutes and when I woke up - in the exact same position - 20 minutes later I felt like I had slept for 3 hours. I couldn't wait to get home that night and go to bed! I have not tossed and turned anymore in the week that I've had this and awake refreshed and in the same position as when I fell asleep. Although I am not completely pain free (it's not a 'magic' bed afterall) It is so comfortable and supportive and just 'fits' your body. I told my father, who is 72 and also suffers from a bad back, about this and he was interested - so I surprised him with one, which is on its way to him now. I know that he'll love it. He hasn't slept in a bed in more than three years so I pray that this will finally allow him to lay down once again and relieve his pain. You owe it to yourself to try this out. At the price, you have NOTHING to lose and EVERYTHING to gain!
I bought this in a King so that I could cut it in half and cover two twins. Since they were the same price regardless of size it was an absolutely unbeatable deal! For my five-year-old's bunk bed mattresses the 1.5 inch is fine. My wife and I use a 3 inch topper which is the thickness that adult body weights require for real comfort. If you want a great deal on a bed, get an average mattress on sale really cheap and then put 3 inches of comfort foam on top.
Got the big bump the other day, and let me forewarn you, don't unwrap it if you think you might return it. It is so compressed, you'ld need machinery to put it back in the box. I noticed a light odor, but nothing offensive and it dissapated within a few days. I did'nt give it time to air out outside. I laid it out on the king size bed for most of a day to expand fully, and then put it on. I was very pleased with the size; it was a perfect king fit edge to edge. Don't let the ad fool you, you're going to feel warmth; not sweaty warmth, but there isn't much in the way of air circulation keeping you cool You feel it as soon as you get comfortable. It isn't the Tempurpedic memory foam from the tv commercials; it isn't that good, but it is better than just foam rubber. I got the 3in thickness and no doubt 2in would not have been sufficient. It is more comfortable than just a good mattress or a pillow top mattress, and for the money, it is a good value. Just don't have Tempurpedic expectations.
I have slept on Tempur-Pedic beds and wanted one soooo badly. But the cost is substantial. Like $3,000 kind of substantial! I never thought I would find a mattress topper under $200 that feels like a Tempur-Pedic and gives me the same kind of slumber. It's perfection. No back pain, no neck pain. NO PRESSURE POINTS! It really conforms to your body...I've never fallen asleep that fast. My husband hates foam toppers, but he was out of his mind over this one after just 5 minutes. He kept saying, "Wow, wow...."
The original cost of this topper is $250. It's absolutely worth that cost, so getting it for $**** is a steal. And I love the Fiber Cover. I'm incredibly happy with this purchase and I've recommended to everyone I know on Facebook.
Make sure you have deep-fitted sheets, because it does add a lot of height to your bed.
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!
I just recieved this item two days ago and all i can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!! When I read the other reviews it said the Queen size did not fit perfectly, ours did and some mentioned a smell, ours didn't. The first night I could actually lay flat on my back without it going into a spasm like it did on my mattress without the memory foam topper, I was thrilled to pieces! I woke up the next morning without any hip pain and very little back pain and truly felt more rested than I have in months. This product is worth every single penny and I know over time my back will not hurt one bit in the morning. Only problem I do have with this topper is not wanting to get out of bed as its so comfortable now:):)
I bought this item after getting a new mattress but a hand me down mattress. I hadn't gotten any sleep for weeks, I actually started sleeping on the couch to avoid the horrible mattress we had. So after doing much research I found this mattress topper and though it was expensive, I think it was definitely worth it, It is like sleeping on a cloud very comfortable, I think you could put this on a floor and you could get a good nights sleep!!!
As an ex-gymnast, I have more joint and back problems than I can list and woke up with tears most mornings from pain. This topper made sleeping enjoyable again and virtually pain free!! The only negative, you will hate when you have to sleep in a bed without it and will wish it was portable. The only thing I will say is the color is a bit ugly and can discolor but who cares when it is topped with sheets. Just make sure to let it unroll and sit out for a few days to air before putting on your bed.
Before I got this foam topper, both my wife and I, at only 28 years old, woke up sore EVERY morning. Limbs would fall asleep on us, and we were tossing and turning. I can't stress how sore and achy we were in the morning!! Our mattress is a old low end firm Sealy, probably about 12 years old now. It's sagging, old, and really worn out. We need a new mattress, but can't get one for a few more months. I was looking for a temporary somewhat inexpensive solution. The Slumber Solutions 2inch Memory Foam Topper was the answer. We wake up rested, no more aches! No more limbs falling asleep, or tossing and turning. Now, it's not a miracle topper. We still need a new mattress, but now we can hold off for quite a while without suffering........
I don't understand all the complaints about the strong smell! What smell?!? When I opened the box, yes it smelled like foam, I aired it out for 6 hours, the room smelled like foam, we slept on it a couple nights with it still smelling like foam. After about three days on the bed, and under all the sheets, it didn't smell at all! We sleep with a window open for fresh air, so that might help, but there is NO SMELL, just awesome comfort! I even have a very sensitive sense of smell, more than my wife even. During my college days I purchased a plain old egg crate foam pad because our dorm rooms didn't have fancy shmancy box springs and thousand dollar mattresses. Now THAT thing smelled! And it only added marginal comfort. I had to sleep with the horrible smell of foam for about three school terms because the hard mattress was worse than enduring the smell, and I tried opening the window, but it was 10 below outside. I think everybody that says it stinks should get out of there gilded palace with their air fresheners, and ionic breeze (I own one too :) ), and go smell the world, IT is a much stinkier place than a bit of foam off-gassing for a day or two. Bottom line, buy it at a time of the year when you can sleep with the bedroom window open and fresh air circulating for a few nights and you will be fine......
We bought the 2 inch topper because my wife and I are stomach sleepers. It works perfectly, you don't feel like you are going to be suffocated, yet still oh so comfortable. BUT if you are a back and/or side sleeper I would really recommend the 3 inch topper! When I sleep on my back or side, I bottom out just a bit and sometimes wish there was just a little more padding (but only for those positions, it's perfect for stomach)......
I highly recommend!! It's an excellent value and a lot of bang for your buck!
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.
