Yesterday while wandering around Wally World, I ran across a hybrid memory foam topper for 30 bones.

It's only an inch thick, and is somehow a mixture of the regular pointy foam and memory foam. No doubt, this is how they keep the cost down.

I tossed it onto my bed at home, and last nite was the best nites sleep I have gotten in ages!

For 30 bucks, it might be a good compromise for the trailer.

Look back by the pillows and bedding.

Yeah, I keep buying things like that and put one on top of the other. Feel like princess and the pea.

I bought one of the memory foam toppers last year and it made such a difference to my sleep we put them on the other beds in the house. Now even our guests can sleep in comfort. The downside is that now our guests don't want to leave. I will definitely put one in the egg when I find it.

I don't have any bones to spare, could you send me some.

Going to my room now. Fiberglass room that is. Heading to the Oregon Coast for a wood carving show.

We bought a 3" memory foam mattress topper at Sam's Club about 10 months ago. I believe we payed about $89. Like many others, buying one is only the beginning. Now we will have to purchase one for the bed in the house.

I collect memory foams like some of you guys collect "eggs." Can't have just one! All beds including camper have it! I used to get up every stinkin' morning with an achy back - ohhh nooo, not anymore - not with my foam.

Its the only thing I'm taking with me when I go to heaven! Hubby's taking his money (what money?). Me? I'm taking my foam!

Still crazy after all these years....

Couldn't return the favor, snow too cold to pack. Kind of like trying to make a snowball out of granulated sugar.
Good to hear from you, Heidi had her baby girl New Year's morn, in case you missed previous mention.

ok guys, I was searching online last night and ran across a site that had LOTS of information on their memory foam mattress. I can be pretty niave so some people tell me, so what do you all think of this site??. HEALTHY FOUNDATIONS...............

http://www.healthyfoundations.com/toppers.html


Where did you all buy from?,
would you buy there again?,
and what inch size would you want for a topper if you were buying again?.
would you buy 2 of the 1" inch toppers and place them on top of each other , or would you want a 2" topper instead?.
The site I was looking at was suggesting a 2" without the cover. They felt that the mattress pad cover for the regualar mattress would fit over the two. They also felt the cover just for the memory foam would slide over the regualr mattress and not keep it in place as well. I will look up the site and attach it to this message.
also, has anyone bought from overstock.com and if so were you happy with their product?

I am looking for one for the camper and one for the home.
Gina, if you had to do it over, would you buy a 2" wally world one if you had the choice?

I have not personally slept on memory foam, but in the last week I have been to two foam mattress specialty stores in town (Foam King and Foamtasic) and both of them said that anything less than 3" of memory foam is a waste of money. We did however try a convoluted foam topper on top of a 4" foam bed, and that topper alone made a huge difference as far as comfort, it sold for around C$100 for a full sizebed.

I may have wasted money, according to the salespeople, but the 2 inches of memory foam we have makes a tremendous difference in our comfort and sleep. Twenty years ago I had disc surgery and getting a comfortable night's sleep was impossible...until I bought the memory foam 3 years ago. If I had 3 inches of foam beneath me I would never want to get out of bed.

What I want to know: Is there any real differences between the competing brands or is there but one factory that turns these out by the millions of square yeards each year? We bought our's (more than one) at Costco and Sam's.

I completely agree with this comment I found on the healthyfoundations website:

... if your bed is too soft, then a memory foam topper will only make the bed even softer and more uncomfortable. Unfortunately there really is no remedy that we know of for an overly soft or unsupportive bed. If this is your problem, you don't need a mattress topper, you need a new bed.

We tried a 1-1/2" memory foam topper on our 20 year old Casita cushions which were already too soft, and it was definitely no help. However, the same topper on our home's sleeper sofa (that had become very uncomfortable due to support wires that you could feel through the bed's padding) turned it into a comfortable mattress again. Even just 1-1/2 " of memory foam can create a huge improvement in comfort as long as you have firm cushions to begin with.
