Question about sleep and mattress toppers

One of the thing that has helped with sleep was buying a mattress topper. I got one and its been great but now its several years old and it seems to have lost its memory! :))) So I'm looking for a new one and wondering if any has had one for at least a few years that they find is a good quality?


  • Nobody has one, I couldn't sleep with the pressure points without one. Does anyone have one that they are happy with????? :jawdrop:
  • I ordered a mattress topper from QVC and it arrived last week. It was hard to put on all by myself, especially being disabled, but boy was it worth it! I have no idea how long it will last but if it only lasts one year and then I have to buy another, that's fine with me because I'm so happy with it. Even my husband slept like a baby on it when he came home for a few days for our wedding anniversary. He LOVED it too!

    I thought it was a little pricey at $195.00 (that's the introductery price, $214.00 regular price) but I don't care. It has the memory foam for the pressure points and it also comes with a microfill topper that is like a featherbed on top. Check it out on the QVC website. It's called "Bodipedic Comfort Options Memory Foam Mattress Topper". Mine is a queen size and the king cost's $246.00 and will go up to $271.00. The item # for the queen is #H11962 & the king is #H11963.

    There is a pillow that I want really bad also. I was waiting to see if I liked the topper before I bought it but I'm going to order it right away now. This is how good this topper is, I haven't been able to sleep in my bed for about 7 years now. I've had to sleep sitting up in a chair in the living room. It's been beyond miserable! I also sleep for 30 minutes to two hours at the most. A couple of nights ago I actually managed to sleep for 5 straight hours without waking up one single time and my back didn't even hurt! That is a miracle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A few years ago I had spent $3600.00 on a Sleep Number bed thinking that it would help me get back to sleeping normal but that was a bust. I was pretty much out of options.

    With the addition of the featherbed like piece on the top, this is like sleeping on a comfortable cloud and incredibly cozy. I have to recommend this to anyone who is looking for one. If you don't like it, you can always send it back within 30 days so there is nothing to lose!

    Good luck!

  • Thanks Jewels. You're right, its just time to get a new one when it actually helps!
  • 8> :jawdrop: I really can't recommend anything higher than this one! It has actually changed my life! For me to actually sleep in a BED was a miracle in itself! I haven't been able to do that in over 7 years. =)) And I didn't wake up in pain!!!!!! I actually got 5 hours of sleep!!! I haven't done that in over 7 years either!!! Can you tell that I'm excited? Yippee! <:P Yes I am!!! =)) <:P I hope that you have the same luck that I have, whichever one you choose! :H

    I bought a nevo (I hope the spellings right) 3 inch memory foam from costco about 4 yrs. ago and it's still a dream come true. I'm not sure of the cost. But I'd pay double!
    Good luck, Jim

  • You've had yours for 4 years? Has it even sarted to break down yet? Also, do you know if they still carry them?
  • I'm curious. Mine has been probably about 3 years. I find it changing colors and just not as firm. Thanks j howie
  • Well one that looks pretty good and is not the big name brand, I contacted and asked for a sample! I hate buying this stuff online. I barely slept until I got the memory foam pillow (one brand was just right-tried 2 others) memory foam topper and I have pillows under my legs and now I'm waking up sore.
  • I have a foam mattress topper made from memory foam also. I bought it at Sams club for $99.00 about 8 years ago and it is still holding up wonderfully. On top of that I use a quilted topper with filling that cushions and comforts.

    I thought the foam was enough and last week tried to sleep without the quilted one. Boy was I surprised. I hurt all over. Could NOT sleep. I recommend this to anyone who has trouble sleeping. It certainly adds comfort and eliminates alot of the pressure put on the skin.
  • 2 years ago i bought a memory foam bed from dormia the box spring and the mattress set me back 1500 dollars. It is somewhat comfy,but not what i expected it to be. I thought i would sink right into it. I sleep really well on soft beds like those really old motel beds. Anyway, i think i am about to go out and by a futon mattress to put on top, they only run about a 100 dollars. I had borrowed my daughters futon mattress for a couple weeks and i slept like a baby. still woke up every two hours to go to the bathroom, but i could at least walk upon standing up. You might try one of those before you spend all that money.
