I too was one of those who fell for the wonders of a Sleep Number Bed..what a waste of money. The matress sits so close to the floor, my bedspread would almost hit the floor, not to mention trying to put the sheets on 2 twin sized mattresses. I decided to get this topper to make my bed higher and so that I could use a regular king sheet. It will take up to three nights to get used to it, but when you do it feels very comfortable. Now it is easier to make up and bedspread fits much nicer.
