“ Brand: Sleep Well / Product Type: Mattress Topper „
I honestly don't know why it is but I don't have much luck with mattresses. Our last one started to wear on my side meaning I was constantly lying on springs whilst our current one seems to have developed a noticeable dip in the half where I sleep (and I swear it's not like I'm fat or anything!?!). We couldn't afford to buy a whole new mattress so when I read about these mattress toppers, they seemed like a blooming good idea!
I have long had a memory foam pillow and have found it the height of comfort despite some people claiming that they take some getting used to, so figured that a mattress topper made of similar material was the way to go! For those who don't know, these toppers are designed to sit on top of a conventional mattress and provide extra padded comfort. Memory foam of course was designed famously for NASA for the use of astronauts in space and, in recent years, has had a big influence on the bedding market.
The first thing you notice upon opening the package this arrives in is the smell. It is not entirely pleasant but neither is it that strong that it will put you off and after a short time, giving this long enough to allow the mattress to breathe, the odour will have dropped to a more acceptable level. Essentially if this arrives at your door in the morning then if you open it straight away, the smell will have mostly dissapated by the evening!
This new mattress topper provides total comfort and now I can sleep much more easily in my bed. Different thickness levels are available but I have found that the 3" mattress is more than satisfactory. And though, it doesn't entirely sort out the dip on my side, the way this mattress molds to the warmth from my body heat makes for a much better nights sleep than before!
As with all such products, shopping around is essential as the prices for these vary depending on where you shop and there are lots of different makes and models out there. This particular mattress is certainly up there with the better available on the market and comes highly recommended from this reviewer!
i love love love this mattress! would NOT be without it! it uses NASA technology using your body heat to molds to fit your body, so you get no back aches or anything because it gives you so much support, and is so snug and warm! prevents tossing and turning in the night so you wake up feeling refreshed, and you don't have to turn these mattresses over, some people may want to but you don't have to :) the only problem is in the summer you wake up boiling hot, but its amazing in the winter! what i do is put a smaller thinner quilt on in the summer so i don't get so hot. I went away for only five days a few weeks back, and my back killed being without this mattress, as soon as i got home the first thing i done was collapse onto my bed :) feels like heaven, literally! my nanny has one of these, and so does my mum, i got everyone to try it and they just HAD to get one!:) you seriously won't regret buying this mattress, worth the money and you won't have another bad night sleep again! haha i feel like i'm trying to sell this to you, but really do it! :D hope this helps.
Memory foam is a type of foam that moulds to the body following the natural contours. This allows your body to relax and it helps the blood flow easily through your viens as there are no pressure points to restrict the flow. As a result of this you tend not to toss and turn so much during the night giving you a more resful nights sleep. This foam was discovered by Nasa and they still use it for their astronaughts. The first make of mattress was Tempur.
I have recently purchased a memory foam mattress Topper and would not go back to a standard type ever again. I could not believe how comfortable the mattress felt and had the best night sleep ever. When I first lay on the mattress it felt quite hard but as my body heated the foam it started to mould to my body. I also use a memory foam pillow which has been harder to get used to, but once you are used to it you won't go back to a normal pillow.
I have read reviews that do state that memory foam takes a while to get used to but this wasn't the case for me.
The foam mattress arrived tightly packed and quarter of the eventual size. You have to let them stand for 8 hours for them to fully expand. There is an odour with them at first (not horrible) but distinctive, a bit like surgical spirit mixed with rubber. This smell goes though so don't be put off by it.
There are many on the market at the moment and you can get them at all leading stores and ebay and they range from £100 (double size) to £300. The heavier the density the more expensive. I have read that 4cm is enough to give you complete support, as even thicker toppers or full size mattresses do not depress more than this anyway.
You may find you need a lighter tog quilt as they are warmer than a standard mattress and if you overheat at night these are probably not for you, as they do hold in the heat.
I hope this review is useful to you and thanks for reading it.
This has to be the best purchase I've ever made. I always suffered from a bad back and found sleeping awkward due to struggling to get comfortable. All that changed the minute I put this seemingly unimpressive piece of foam on top of my mattress. I woke up the next day having not woken up once during the night, hurray! The more I used it the easier my back pain became. Obviously as the day goes on the pain re-emerges however I now look forward to going to sleep instead of being anxious over whether I'd sleep or be tossing and turning all night. I realised just how much straighter my spine was in the mornings as I have to adjust my rear view mirror when I get in the car in the morning and at night by about 2 inches. Also when I stay away at a hotel or on holiday I realise just how much I miss my memory foam topper as I find it almost impossible to get comfy. So much so I don't really mind coming home just to get a good night sleep again. It helps to distribute your weight evenly so no more pressure on your heavier bits. It also helps to regulate your temperature and moulds into your individual shape. If your partner is a fidgeter then you don't notice them wriggling around either as they are in their own individual island of comfort. Could go on for hours about this but all I want to say is just try it.
