This goes only for the 5" thick version of this - AND IT WAS 5" (Haven't tried any of the other thicknesses)
I chose this to review for my first Amazon review (long-time customer) because I'm so enthusiastic about this chunk 'o foam!

If you're a tall, big man with back troubles like me - don't listen to the namby pamby's who gave it 1 star.
I got it, and like one of the 4 star reviewers, you just wait a couple of days without putting any load on it or sniffing at it,
and you'll have a REAL NICE, FIRM, back-relieving mattress! Follow instructions-
Don't use a razor knife to open it- foam will bias on you.

The CUT of the mattress wasn't bad, and the size is a GENEROUS QUEEN I ordered - seemed waaay too small first, now it's almost too big.
The smell certainly WASN'T like cat pee, more woody than pee-like (after airing out)
NOW I put a couple of 3" hard pink foam boards underneath and zipped it up into a zippered queen BOX SPRING cover (cheaper, without the nasty, crinkly vinyl liner)

I am in HEAVEN now - I would describe it as extra-firm, therapeutic.

For $100 bucks, when I was CRUSHING those inexpensive queens repeatedly, this is a BARGAIN.
I KNOW it will last at least a year. I'm 400lbs.

BYW: If there are two people in it- it's firm enough you certainly WON'T get a hill between OR on either side of you- THAT'S
how firm it is - don't think yellow, soft foam, it'll mush in - this WON'T - excellent quality!

I bought this assuming that it would be firm mattress pad and would help my back. Initially when I got this, i was really happy. The topper was realy firm and was good support to my back but as I have used it over last few months, i feel the topper has lost it firmness.

We bought a $2000 mattress about 2 years ago and it has been disappointing at best. We roll into dent each night and the middle has a hump. The $300 queen we bought for the guest room is more comfortable. So I have tried so many fixes and this was my last ditch effort and thank goodness. It has made a difference and I am vey pleased. Yes I would rather have a quality mattress and not the extra topper, but I can sleep now without an achy back!

Once I unrolled this topper, ( how the heck they compress, and roll up this foam is a mystery ) let it breath for about 5 or ten minutes, and your good to go. I put it on top of my bed hopped up on it, and was immediately surprised at how firm it was. Let me tell you something - you don't even need a bed. You could throw this on the floor and start snoozing. One negative is that who ever cuts these things ought to figure out how to use a tape measure and a caulk line. Square it was not, but the cut it large so I was able to trim it with a serrated knife.

I ordered this item because I am renting a furnished room for three months and the current mattress was horrible on my back (despite never having back problems before). After two nights on this foam topper, I am back in action. I'm 150 pounds and and the extra firm supports well but is not too firm that it is uncomfortable. I now feel like I am sleeping on a well supported cloud. It is well worth the $ despite the dimensions being a little strange. There was an odd smell but it went away after airing out properly. I wasn't going to give it a 5 because it does look cheap (seriously looks like a massive piece of foam) but who care, it's covered and does the job.

These are advertised as mattress toppers, but I ordered them to use as mattresses for a custom built bunk bed. Believe me, they are dense enough not to "bottom out". Their quality seems excellent, BUT don't rely the advertised dimensions! Rather than the 73 inch length advertised, one mattress was about 70 1/2 inches long, and the other about 71 1/2 inches long. In my particular application, this wasn't a big deal, but that may not be the case for everyone.

It's amazing how they pack these suckers into a box! They are compressed and rolled tightly, and about three miles of cling wrap is used to keep them compressed and rolled. Not only will it take you awhile to get all the cling wrap off, but it takes awhile for the mattress to assume its full size. WARNING: Do NOT pull the last bit of cling wrap off until you have room for the mattress to open. It would be something like opening a life raft in a half-bathroom!

All in all, a most excellent piece of foam, but do be aware of the dimension difficulty.

We don't know what to think of this topper yet.
The "Consumer Information" paper that came with this topper said the topper should 'take less than 2 hours to recover to it's full dimensions but should not take longer than 48 hours'. Well.... it's been three days and the topper is still severely deformed - unusable.
The topper arrived quickly in a box only 18" deep and 22 x 20 inches wide. They really compress this into a small box compared to it's actual size.

We'll email them and update this review later....

UPDATE: Amazon customer service emailed back. They were willing to replace the topper. But what I wanted at the time, was to talk to someone who has knowledge of this foam instead of going off willy-silly and shipping this stuff back and forth and then ending-up with the same problem. Is it going to take longer for the topper to return to it's original shape? Is there anything I can do to speed-up the process? I guess I was a little naive to think I could actually get someone in customer service who was knowledgeable about the product they sell.

So now, it's been 23 days and the topper is still deformed. There are two large humps going down the middle of it, lengthwise, where they folded this thing to get it in to a small box. If I turn it over, there are two sinkholes.

We bought a 6 inch topper years ago from a local upholstery shop and never had any problems like this. Most likely because it was never smashed into a small box. Live and learn. A one hundred twenty dollar lesson.

UPDATE2: We messed with this for over a month. The length-wise lumps in the topper were probably where they folded it and then rolled it up to fit into the small box. The foam NEVER recovered from this compression!

Amazon was quick to refund our payment and paid for return shipping (UPS pickup).

Yes, we did wrap it up for shipping. No, we did not get it back into the original small box. (Maybe rolling it up the opposite way it was when shipped to us will help smooth out the lumps.. maybe).

At first, I thought I was stone crazy for paying $150 for a big piece of foam, but now I'm so glad I did! I purchased an adjustable bed because of health and weight issues, but the mattress was way too soft. It was an online purchase and I didn't want to pay for shipping the mattress back to the manufacturer. I then decided to Google information regarding mattress pads that provide firmness for soft mattresses and found this mattress topper, which solved all my problems! The only reason I did not give a five star rating is because the foam mattress is larger than a standard queen size bed. Other than that, I'm looking forward to many future restful evenings!!!

The very first time I slept on this it was the first painless night of sleep I have had in a very long time. It is perfect for larger people. I weight 300lbs at 6' 2" and this was wonderful. I highly recommend this mattress for anyone that wants a xtra-firm mattress. I does take a day or so for the mattress to fully expand after unwrapping. I initially tries placing it on top of my existing mattress but it was too wobly. I removed my mattress and and placed this directly on my boxspring. It's fantastic!

Update. I purchased a second mattress to add to the first. When the second arrived it was packaged the same as the first but this time the crease created from folding would not come out. Additionally, the matress is a full 6 inches shorter than the first. I don't know how these things are manufactured but I don't understand how the exact same product could be so much different in size. I still recommend this mattress for anyone with back pain but beware, the quality is definitely hit and miss.

This product is like a board and is uneven even after waiting a week. It is too much trouble to send it back so I am out $80. I have just thrown it away. B. Adams
