So happy! OK, I think now it’s time to leave my opinion regarding this topper since I already use it for almost 10- 15 days now. I shall update my review after half year or so.
I spent 2 months comparing with numerous reviews about all kind of toppers - foam, not foam, gel, reversible, etc. Decided to purchase this one online. It came on-time in a medium size square box, nothing was torn, and the box was intact and easy to lift with one hand. I took pictures at several stages as I was opening, assuming I will see some tears or defects and will report it. The topper was vacuum wrapped in plastic which was cumbersome to remove even with 2 people so it was very tight and secure wrap. I was anticipating smelling a strong whiff of chemical stench which I read about many other foam topers. I even planned to put it on the floor in another room and leave it there for a week because of smell. There was no smell. OK, it was a very slight scent from the plastic, but that dissipated after 10-15 minutes. So, for me – it is a NO smell. Brought it in the bedroom and started to unroll it on my bed, examining vigilantly – no tears, no opened seems, nothing alarmed my attention. The topper comes in cotton mattress cover with zipper. Unzipped the edge of this cover and saw that the top is green/turquoise foam and bottom is the gel padding. I heard rumors that it is complicated to remove and put back this cover if I want to wash it. To save myself from potential stress, I additionally enclosed it with my waterproof protector from Ikea- $ 20; that will protect from spills, it is washable, only 20% synthetic and 80% cotton; therefore, it will not make me perspiring from synthetics. This mattress protector has very deep sides, so covered nicely the toper and my very thick mattress beneath as well. Then I covered all with bed sheet. I put the topper on bed at 3 pm to completely expand and 12 midnight went to bed. I was not hot, it did not suffocate me, and did not feel like it wraps my body - it is actually cool, and I do not need to move my legs constantly to find cooler spot. I am comfortably cool all night. I thought its softness is medium stiffness, but in fact, it is rather on the medium - firm side, but not hard. I do not like hard surface. I placed it on my hard mattress, but this toper still makes me feel very cozy and comfortable. I mean, if you think you are buying a soft cloudy toper, it is not. Yet it is it very comfortable. Does not indent to body's contours. It means you create an indentation (or "valley"), where you body is lying. If you turn during the night, you will be awakened out of sleep because your body can not naturally turn "up hill". It takes a lot of effort to get out the contoured spots and adjust during sleeping. With this topper if I turn from side to side, I do not have to elevate my whole body as I did with some other much thicker topper. The topper does not slip from the mattress. By the way, before entirely open, it was not accurate queen size-- rather a bit shorter on all sides, but after several hours, it became regular queen size. ( I did not capture that picture) Overall:
Does not slip from mattress
Does not retain heat.
Comes with protective case
Comfortable Unfortunately, there is no option provided here to submit my pictures of this topper.
