I might recommend this to someone who's not premenopausal. :-) It is VERY hot. We bought ours in the early fall and I had difficulties with night sweats; my husband commented that the sheets on my side of the bed were soaked. Now it's getting cooler and things are better, but I'm concerned about how I'll fare next summer when it gets warm again. Aside from the temp issues, the topper is comfortable. We bought one from**** for our VW Eurovan, and it's thinner, a bit firmer, and has a covering on it. I don't have problems with that one. If I had it to do over again, I probably would have bought our second one from ****. I think the covering might help with the temp issue.
