Memory Foam Bed Topper
pain almost all gone!
I happened to run across this- not looking for it- and after reading the reviews, I took a chance. I guess I was the last person in the USA to not know about these things! I am SO glad I tried it. I used to wake up with moderate, nagging arthritis pain unless I took meds (mild ones, but still). Now I may take the meds every few days, usually less. (My hands and fingers still hurt, and by late day I am achey a bit.) I almost always wake up comfortable and pain free. I had hoped it would help, but frankly, I'm stunned by the difference. SO glad I treated myself. I personally do not find it overly warm. I did leave it to air out for a couple of weeks and feared it might not (at first it made my eyes water!# But the insert from the company says they will work with you and take it back if you really can't adapt to it. #Don't know how readily they do, since I never had to call.# I have a standard size double bed and this fit ABSOULUTELY PERFECTLY- as if it were made for it. It does not slip or slide at all #though I must say I am not a restless sleeper.) Fortunately I had a low profile box spring and mattress, because it does add 3" to the height of your bed. Because my mattress was slim the sheets still fit. 0

I was hopeful that based on some other reviews there would be little odor initially. My experience with memory foam over the years is that there is always some odor that needs to be allowed to air out after taking the item out of its packaging, and this topper was no exception. Perhaps I notice this particular odor more than some other people, but it had a very strong odor. I aired it on top of a bed in a guest bedroom for a couple of weeks occasionally opening a window and turning on a ceiling fan to circulate the air in the room. That said, the effort was well worth it in that I awake in the mornings with fewer aches and pains in my joints. Previously, I would also find myself waking up several times during the night and need to change positions. With the topper I find the need to do so less often if at all. The quality is excellent compared to some other toppers I have used in the past. I like that it already came with the cover on and was not "squished" as much as most others. I have not found it to be "too warm" as mentioned by a few other reviewers. I am very happy with this purchase.

The good and the not so good...
We've had this mattress topper for several months now and I love it (the recommendation and rating given reflects my opinion.) Makes my arthritic joints very happy. But, my husband gets hot and sweaty, even in winter, on using this mattress pad. I've purchased a very nice and thick cotton mattress pad to put over it but it's not helping. Often he's off to a guest bedroom in the middle of the night. Not sure what my next move will be, but, even though he hasn't asked, I feel the Memory Foam Bed Topper has to go. Too bad...it feels sooo good.

comfortable but not the right size
i bought the full. it's comfortable but its dimensions are smaller of that that a standard full size mattress. when you put sheets on (if you can get them on - the additional height will create difficulties with certain fitted sheets), you don't get a clean look - it has a step-down look. i will probably send it back.

Best Investment Ever!
This topper is wonderful. I bought a new box spring and mattress last year and it has been a little too firm. I was having trouble sleeping and waking up with aches and pains. Since adding this to the bed, I have had no pain and have been sleeping through the night. I do not want to get out of bed in the am I am so comfortable. Highly recommend this!! Also-I am sleeping so well, people have commented how good I look!

I read the reviews before I bought it, three months ago, and waited until there was a site wide sale to purchase. I wish I hadn't waited. I have been sleeping on it for three months now and instead of waking up with pain in my hips and back every morning I now feel refreshed and pain free. The only drawback is that now my bed is so comfortable and pain isn't waking me up, I have a problem with over sleeping because I don't want to get out of my comfy bed! Don't wait! Totally worth it! It also isn't hot at night, which can also be a problem for me.

This makes the bed in our travel trailer perfect!
I bought this topper hoping it would make our travel trailer queen bed comfortable and I was not disappointed. I often have pain in my hips when I sleep away from home and was worried about the bed in our new trailer.
Now that we have tried this out for three nights I can report that we both slept well and I woke with no pain.
I highly recommend it.

WOW--What an amazing difference!
All I can say is , "Wow!" Our mattress isn't old and didn't feel too firm, but I could only sleep on my left side and I'd still wake up stiff, sore, and with a painful lower back. I put the topper on a couple days after opening it (the directions have you wait 48 hours for the topper to come back to shape due to packaging) and can't believe the difference in my sleep. Even before falling asleep I could feel there was no pressure on my hips or anywhere. During the night I slept in several positions I hadn't in a long time and I woke up pain free! I am so happy to have this!

Memory Foam Topper
I bought this during a 30% off sale w/free shipping. It was definitely worth the price. Our fairly new mattress set was a bit too firm for our aging bones so we thought we would give this item a try. It's wonderful! Unlike many of the other memory foam products out there, this topper did not have a strong chemical smell. What little odor it did have seemed to dissipate within 48 hours. The grippy bottom helps to prevent shifting of the topper. I really like the fact that it actually fits our king size mattress while many of the other brands of foam topper run noticeably too short and too narrow.
I highly recommend this topper.
