I have a bad back and after surgery needed more support and cushioning. This topper provided just that! I can even fold it in half and put it on the couch in the family room so I can spend time with the family and not be isolated in my bedroom all the time. My son tried it and now wants one for his bed. I even recommended to a friend who just had a similar back surgery that she try it and she was very happy she did. Because the topper is made of a firm foam it provides support but yet it still conforms to my body without putting pressure on my back irritating places that a harder mattress would normally do so. Also, it is not too think so that my regular sheets still fit over it and my mattress without causeing the corners to come off every night. Altogether this is a great mattress topper and definitely a great price.
