Advantages: Makes an uncomfortable mattress comfortable again!
Disadvantages: None for me!
When new our mattress cost almost £400, it's a king size bed and was a 'treat' to ourselves after my waters broke on our previous mattress - Mark (being a woman-nerd) was repulsed by it from that point on (ha!) so I knew I was going to get what I'd wanted for months: a new mattress! I searched long and hard for our current mattress, so to find it uncomfortable after just eleven months was irksome to say the least - even without taking the cost into consideration I didn't want to replace it so soon as it's a fab mattress. Firm and bouncy, a made-to-measure fit for the bed and incredibly supportive for all areas of my body. The issue is that we can feel the springs to a degree, and also a few of rows of stitching are slightly too raised - I had a feeling that a mattress topper would sort this out and after dismissing a £39 topper in B&M decided to splash out on this Silentnight Impress one.
It cost £125 six months ago and has literally transformed our bed! While we have the king size mattress topper, it's also available in single and double sizes with not a huge difference in the prices. When new the topper comes packed in a smaller than expected box, before use you need to air it to allow the foam to expand and reach its 5cm depth - I did this over the banister and left it airing for around ten hours before putting it on the bed. It fit my mattress perfectly from the outset and has kept its shape well so far, it's machine washable and is best dried over the line in the open air - at a push you can dry the topper over a warm (not hot) radiator, although I find this method of drying leaves the foam 'feelably' harder than when air dried.
I'm 100% impressed with the topper, it does exactly what it promises and has made bedtime a million times more comfortable. It feels firm when I first lie down but gradually the mattress topper is reacting to your body height and the foam is moulding itself to fit your shape; you can't feel it happen as it's a fairly slow process, but suddenly you'll notice you're feeling even more comfortable than you were before - and this is the moment when the topper will have begun to work it's magic. Mark's a really fidgety sleeper but I've noticed this has lessened since I bought the topper, Silentnight actually claim that this is the case but I only found that out tonight - I can honestly say it's true though as I'm hardly disturbed at all these days (or nights!) by him shifting around erratically in his sleep.
During the day the mattress topper levels itself out again to a degree, not completely as that would defeat the object of using 'Memory Foam' but enough that you don't have to try and force yourself into exactly the same position as the previous night when sleep-time comes. I remember it took a few nights for the topper to really start being ultra-comfortable, it felt like it was being broken in like a pair of shoes but now feels wonderful from the moment I get into bed. It stays put on the mattress beautifully and only moves when I want it to, I turn ours every week and with pretty regular washing I'm surprised it's still in the same condition as when it was new - which is more than I can say for a much cheaper unbranded mattress topper we had for our daughters bed which looked like an old rag after a month!
For this reason I wholeheartedly recommend this Silentnight Impress Mattress Topper; it's just fab! Obviously not everyone is going to need or want a mattress topper, but if you have a good quality mattress that is lacking in the comfort stakes this is a perfect way of giving it a new lease of life. It's not the cheapest available by any stretch of the imagination but I've been amazed by the quality of this particular topper, it makes settling down to sleep a pleasure and has been worth every penny in my (and Marks!) opinion!
Summary: A great mattress topper which has completely transformed our (pretty uncomfortable) mattress
