We purchased a new VERY high priced mattress set thinking we would have great comfort but we didn't. We just wasted our money. After price and quality research, we purchased the "cool" memory foam topper and it is just great! It is a good value and of good quality. It is soft and yet very supportive! One of the reasons we selected this particular topper was fear of the body heat issue and there doesn't seem to be any problem! The only negative is the smell. We placed the topper in a spare bedroom for five days on top of twin beds and then placed it on an old sheet on the screen porch for a sixth day. There is a slight lingering smell after two weeks but this topper is well worth any inconvenience! Take some good advice and buy a cheaper mattress and boxsprings and top it off with the "cool" memory topper! You'll be glad you did!
