We have a 2in. novaform mattress topper and decided after 10years to replace it. Looked at a lot of reviews and went with this 2in. swisslux. First off, you must go to the 4in. if you want that cush feeling. Tried this topper with the bumpie side up and the bumpie side down, actually prefer the bumpie side up, but since we got the 2in. we were essentially sleeping on our hard bed. Ended up putting our novaform topper under this topper and voila were happy again. This is a light weight version of memory foam, not at all comparable to the novaform topper.
