Feels good quality, not sure it will last
26 January 2019
I was a bit weary of what to expect from seeing reviews people have listed from similar products. I've never had to buy a mattress topper before either.
As you can see from my first picture, I got this to cover my memory foam mattress following online recommendations. I have difficulty sleeping on a night because my mattress is too firm and memory foam holds heat much more than a regular mattress does. It doesn't help that I took off my mattress cover too because the fabric was bobbling and leaving strands of hair like thread all over the place, on top of being able to feel the bobbles whilst I laid in bed. Long story short, the heat from the mattress was unbearable and often I try to sleep without a quilt because of it even in winter with no heating on.
So I chose this one specifically partly because of the brand but partly because of the airflow system it apparently has in it. I honestly don't see how its going to help since surely when you lay on it, you crush the part thats letting air in it anyway? I really feel like its a gimmick but I will be updating this review tomorrow once I have had a nights sleep on it.
The fabric feels decent quality cotton, its not thin and easily torn like some reviews said about other products. I feel like I got my moneys worth so far (bought on sale at £25.49) but I wouldn't pay full price for it because I don't think I would pay that much for any mattress topper, I would just get a new mattress instead. The padding inside resembles that of a thin quilt, its not lumpy at the minute but I do feel like over the space of a month or two, its going to be completely flat.
Overall, so far I would say on the sale price at £25.49 it may be worth it but full price don't bother. Even at the sale price I don't think its going to last long enough to make it worth the cost but I will update in the future if this changes.
UPDATE: So this adds a little bit more comfort to your mattress, but as I mentioned before its no different to putting a quilt on top of it. It doesn't stay right up to the edge very well either when your laid on it and it pulls towards the center when you lay on it. If you sleep close to the edge of the bed I suspect you would feel the edge underneath you as you sleep.
As for actual help with my sleep issues? Well... slightly but not very much. It is definitely cooler than just my memory foam because it holds heat much less and it is slightly comfier but as I mentioned above, the air gap in it is just a gimmick. The reason it holds heat less is because its a fluffy quilt and not as densely packed, nothing more. Personally if I had the choice to buy again now, I would just get a quilt and use that.
