Silentnight Memory Foam Topper
Last year our mattress was really on its last legs but at the time we just couldn't afford to buy a new, quality mattress so we took the advice of my mother in law and purchased the Silent Night Memory Foam Topper to try and get a few comfortable nights' sleep until we could afford a new mattress.
The usual retail price for one of these toppers is between £60 and £70 but we were lucky enough to find one all by itself with a torn box in Tesco and discovered it was reduced to £25 which was an absolute bargain and we were really pleased. We were going to go for the Silent Night one anyway as I have always felt their bed items are the best on the market so to find it at such a good price was really pleasing.
It came in a blue box with the Silent Night logo on the front and a lttle picture of the topper. The topper was rolled up inside the box so when it came to getting it home, it was simply a case of unrolling it and putting it on top of the mattress. I really thought we had an answer to our problems as a topper is supposed to lay on top of your mattress and give you an extra layer of softness and protection from any lumps, bumps or spirngs coming through your mattress. However, much disappointment and annoyance came from this topper I am afraid.
Firstly, once laid out on the bed, we found that it was a little bit thinner than expected. Out came my husband's tape measure and we found it was only 2.5cm. Not alot really but we were hopeful that this wouldn't mean anything and we would still manage to get a good night's sleep. We have fitted sheets on out bed so obviously the fitted sheet needed to go over the top of the topper but no matter how much we tugged and pulled, our double sheet just would not hold over the top of the topper. It just kept flicking back off. And even when we eventually got it to hold, it made the corners roll up so we could not use a fitted sheet with it and had to use a flat sheet.
When we were using it, we found that the topper went very flat and just didn't seem to give us that added layer of comfort the box boasted of. In fact, althought it was a little bit of an improvement on laying on the mattress, it wasn't that much different. The topper also made both me and my husband feel hot. It didn't seem to allow the heat of our bodies to flow through it. Instead it seemed to trap the heat and thenradiate it back into us. We purchased this when we had really hot weather last summer so this made us very uncomfortable and irritable. In fact it just made us keep waking up each night. Even with the duvet covers kicked off of us it was just like sleeping on top of a radiator. The other thing we found with this topper was that it did not stay in place very well. If you moved around at night, the topper would shift with you. At one point, my husband wasn't even on the topper as it had moved so much!
I would have been so disappointed with this had we paid the full price for it. It didn't do the job it was supposed to and it caused more annoyance than comfort. It definately did not give us a Silent Night! I would avoid this at all costs.
