So it seems I am having a week for recommending things and next on the list is our new memory foam mattress topper from Serta purchased from Overstock.com.
There is a bit of a long saga behind our reasons for buying a mattress topper, I won't bore you with the whole sorry story, but I will just say this. Don't EVER buy a Sealy mattress set, do NOT believe the 10 year warranty they offer is worth a dime, and be prepared to have a huge ridge down the middle of said mattress only to be told it's a body imprint! (And if you look at comment #13 on this post, it seems we are not the only ones with this problem)
After no success with Sealy and not being ready to invest in another mattress just yet, we decided to try adding the memory foam topper for the timebeing. I would also add the Hubster and I are now of an age where various body parts stiffen up overnight (no sniggering!) and we wake easily. It probably doesn't help that there are 5 of us in our bed every night, including a total of 36lb of felines!
After airing it out for the required 3 days to get rid of that memory foam 'smell' we finally got to sleep on it Sunday night.
Wow! What a difference it makes, we are both sleeping like babies, no aching or stiff bits when we get up and we don't disturb each other when we move around during the night. The only small problem is trying to get the fitted sheet to stay on our very tall mattress now, we may have to go to an unfitted sheet, but who cares when it's so comfortable.
I did make the comment as we 'climbed' into bed Sunday night, that I felt a bit like the old fairy story "the Princess and the Pea' our mattress set is now so high!
Not long ago we also changed to memory foam pillows, so I would say we are now converts after some initial skepticism about it's merits. I would best describe memory foam as extremely forgiving, very supportive but comfortable, and it almost seems to cocoon your body which is very comforting.
So highly recommended for a great nights sleep. End of plug, before one of you thinks I'm trying out to be a QVC presenter sometime soon!
