Great product if you know what you need
on May 20, 2014
I love amazon but a big downside is that often products are online only, or not available to examine locally . The reviews have been a great guide if you have the time to read through them. I'll sum up what I've read, filtering out the obviously paid for reviews to help illustrate the realities of this mattress topper.
I'll start by saying that this is a quality topper as far as materials are concerned. I went to the manufacturers web page and read up on everything. They make their stuff to a relatively high standard, much better than the memory foam toppers I've purchased at walmart in the past. It's made in the USA if you care about that, is tested and meets safety standards related to the chemical content of the foam. The gel foam they use is much cooler than other memory foam, and more supportive. The pillow topper is a bit thin, 1-1/2 inches, but it's close enough and a dream to sleep on. The gel memory foam expanded quickly out of the package without obvious odor, and I slept on it the first night. The instructions said this would help the foam expand quicker with my body heat. Felt great, and got better as it expanded over two days. Many reviewers complained about this memory foam being overly soft and that they experienced back pain from how far they sank into the topper. I feel like those people are unfamiliar with memory foam, or already have particularly good mattresses and don't need such a heavy duty topper. I say this because I have disc issues all down my spine, and my back feels great in that bed. Then again I have a firmer mattress, the disc stuff was recent and I had to find something I could sleep on without pain. It can be hard to maneuver around while in bed, but if you've slept on memory foam for a whole night before, and like it, this is a top notch topper for the money. I encourage people who've never slept on memory foam, to start with something a bit thinner. It took me awhile to get used to memory foam, and some people don't like it at all. I hope that you find this helpful
