I bought this product for my wife who was having back aches during her pregnancy. The product worked like magic and now she sleeps so peacefully. For people who have not-so-good-quality mattresses but do not want to spend a fortune to buy a new one, it is a viable option. At great price, it is a very comfortable maneuvering of a poor quality mattress.
You must keep in mind the following points:
1. Before buying, explore about the factors that are required to give you a comfortable mattress topper support. To start with, you should check out the Cloud9 retailer website that gives good information on how to find out what density and thickness of mattress will work well for you. More so, you can browse a little on internet to find more information.
2. Actually, the retailer provides that the density (3.4/4.3/5.3)and thickness of toppers are measured in a ratio. For example if your weight is more than 250lbs, you should be considering a 4 inch topper for support and pressure relief. The 5.3 density will work better because it will give you a firmer support without letting you sink into the topper. Similarly, a person having less weight can get the same result with a thinner and less dense topper.
3. Keep in mind that a 4 inch topper will add 4 inches to the height of your mattress. You must buy new linen to cover the extra height.
4. The product gives off bad smell as it is taken out of the box. The smell is of rubber, so it requires to be taken out in fresh air to remove the unpleasant stink. Febreeze is also a good help. You can also use a water proof mattress cover. However, the smell dissipates with time.
5. The retailer takes 15% disposal fee to return the topper within 30 days. There was no need to use this option anyway.
At first I bought it for my King size bed but it was so good to sleep on that I had to order another one for the guest bedroom. The new topper removed my upper back ache but it was quite hard for my lower back. To resolve the issue, I got two twin sized toppers for my split king bad. Now I do not have any back aches. I ordered the product through Amazon. With such a super fast delivery, I totally recommend this product!
