I have been suffering from a herniated disk with a annular tear and DDD and recently bought a 2" memory foam topper for my bed. My bed already has a very good mattress but i wanted to try the topper also since I heard good things on this forum about it.

I like it alot, My sleep has improved and you feel like your body is being hugged gently with no sagging or rolling around. the 2" topper cost around $90 at Walmart but I feel it's worth it since they last a long time.


  • But I got a king size 2" from overstock, folded in half= 4" Think it was $70 and like $2 shipping. I Love it. Its also great folded 3 times, and put on the living room floor. Perfect combo of firm, and soft.

    Thinking about buying the actual 10" one, they cost about $500 at the local discount furniture store. I've slept on the "real" ones at this hotel, and liked them.
  • They are nice.We have a king sized bed with a very good mattress,but it is pretty firm so I wanted to try the memory foam to see if it helped with that.My BF really needs the firmness and I never know what I want when it comes to a mattress.A few years ago while shopping for Christmas presents I saw the memory foam toppers on sale and bought one for us..I really like it.

    My son was living w/us then~he moved back to PA.,but he's mentioned it a few times...glad to see this thread now too because I had forgotten and w/the holidays coming up I can start looking...maybe I'll get lucky & find one on sale.He has a full sized bed...now is'nt a full bed half the size of a king???? I'm wondering if I can get him a king size and he could maybe cut it in half & get double.He is only 22 and in seriously good health for which I am eternally grateful,but he has been complaining that his back hurts and he swears it's from his bed.Maybe the memory foam will help ;)

  • only got my full mattress on mon, didnt want just a topper, not bad price £360 in sale. first night was weird felt very strange. felt like a tortoise once i was on my back i couldnt turn over (my husband thought it was hilarious) getting used to it now and sleeping for much longer at a time. i would say to everyone give it a try, u have nothing to lose. i find it rather warm to sleep in but my husband is grateful that i no longer put my cold butt up against him he he
  • My BF says that it's warm,but I get night sweats off & on so I never noticed...I thought it was just me.. :/

    Oh well...winters coming it won't matter,and my son is ALWAYS freezing so it'll work out great for him.

    I'd like to get a new bed even though ours is nice I think the king is actually too big.Whenever I go to kiss him goodnight I gotta roll over..literally over.It's almost too much room,but can't afford a new one right now.
  • I have a full size, which is just bigger than 1/2 king. So on my side of the bed, the topper is folded in half. All the sizes on overstock cost the same, so I bought the King.

  • Told me about a great memory foam topper and I think it comes from QVC. I hope that I saved the info in my messages. If so, I will post it for you.
  • this is supposed to be awesome!

    mattress topper go to QVC on the internet and click on "For The Home", then click on "Bodipedic", then click on "Mattress Toppers" and there you are! The topper info is; Item# H11962 Bodipedic Comfort Options Memory Foam Mattress Topper, size Queen $195.00 and will go up to $214.00. The King size is right there also and the item # is # H11963 $246.00 and will go up to $271.00. Everyone is rating them at 5 out of 5 stars. The only reason that a couple of the stars are lower is due to the lack of instructions. A woman with Fibro
  • For that info.Those prices seem a little high,but maybe the quality is better than mine.I'll have to check it out :)
  • Robin, for some one like me, who has been in chronic severe pain for more then a year and a half, this animation is depressing.
    Most people after back surgery at one time or another have at least thought about killing themselves. Its just not nice to have this reminder of what we live with every day as a concrete image in our memory.
  • If you are in an area of the Midwest that has Shopko stores they have a memory foam topper for about $139, I think, for Queen. I got one and it has made a huge difference! We have one of those sleep number mattresses but I absolutely could not sleep on it after surgery no matter what I did. The memory foam topper makes all the difference! I can even sleep on my back - and for the leg/hip that had nerve pain after surgery it was a godsend!
