We worked with Barbro Sjötun at Hastens Soho and could not have had a better experience. Over the span of many visits, Barbro patiently took time to walk us through our many options. In addition to being an expert on Hastens and their amazing product line, she also seems to be an expert on sleep and had many insights that she was generous enough to share with us. Once we were ready to make the purchase, she was very responsive (even over weekends) - we could not be any happier with the service we were provided as well as the final product.View More Reviews
We worked with Saroya Garcia and had a wonderful experience! She was knowledgeable, not pushy and extremely accommodating. She spent the time to help us understand the company, our options and find the best bed for us. She was responsive to our emails and even held the store open late one Friday night when we couldn't get out of work in time to get there before closing! We couldn't be happier with our Hastens bed and had a wonderful experience working with Soy!
Barbro is a mattress expert in addition to being just a genuinely nice and interesting person to talk to. She is familiar with all high end mattress brands and I've learned a lot from her. After owning my Hastens 2000T for 5 years I am back to buy another one for my weekend home.
I have been shopping for mattress for a while. A friend recommended Hastens. Boy, it was the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Although I ended up with bedding materials not mattress, I was very impressed by Barbro's professionalism and her knowledge in this prestige product line. Thank you Barbro for your help today.
After being discouraged by an unpleasant salesperson at the Upper East Side location. I ventured to the SoHo location where the salespeople were much friendlier. I ordered a very high end mattress in which I have waited three months to receive. After communicating with the team and having the date changed multiple time (by them) we settled on a date and time. That date came and they tried to deliver well before the delivery window. I made sure to accommodate this and did everything I could to make things run smoothing including co-ordinating alternate elevator use with the delivery. After everything was in the apartment and the movers had left I realized that the mattress that was delivered was not what I had ordered. Immediately contacting the company, who were confused, I was treated as though it was an error on my behalf. Rather than the concern of making sure i had the mattress that I had ordered three months ago the issues was the incorrect mattress and soon soon they could pick it up. When I asked about when I can expect mine (as it was scheduled for today) the response I received was, "I don't know". After a number of calls back and forth it was decided that the incorrect mattress would be picked up and the correct delivered at the same time. Then another phone call- the mattress is scheduled to be picked up but still no idea when my mattress that was ordered three months ago and had scheduled for delivery today would be arriving as they can't swap them on the same day. At the end of the day I'm still waiting on my mattress and I was treated with a bad attitude by all of the staff who didn't take any responsibility for their mistake. This isn't the high-end customer service you would expect from a high end store. Very disappointed.
This is a review for treatment in their union square/flatiron location. Dean an elderly white stuffy male seemed incredibly uncomfortable that he had to help me (a brown skin woman). He called my son a she because he is completely ignorant about the Sikh faith. I wish I was not so angered by this experience but it's very hard to give someone so visibly racist the benefit of the doubt.
Worst value ever! $15,000 for a mattress that becomes hard as a rock. And their warranty is a total scam. When you call to complain, They send so-called technicians over who just turn a few buttons and then tell you that you may have a problem when they can't improve it. Then they lie to their supervisor on the report. Unbelievable. Stay away!
Wow, the men working here ? superb,They were able to help me have bedding shipping out to California by the time I get back.The natural materials are a big selling point. And to rest on it feels like being in a supportive vat of whipped cream pure luxury.
I bought my Hastens bed 8 years ago and I still look forward to sleeping on it every single night. The customer service is polite, friendly, and helpful. I recommend you take the time to test each bed out properly to make sure you're making the right choice. It makes you think seriously about what position you sleep in. They give you ample time to try everything, and will even give you a blanket and turn down the showroom lights. After all, it is a hefty investment. Also, they aren't kidding when they say you have to religiously flip the mattress during the first year or so to make sure it settles evenly. My salesperson would call me when it was time to flip it again. Now that is customer service!! Follow their advice, and you'll be the proud owner of a solid and comfortable mattress 8 years on.
Despite the high price, Haastens has not bothered to resolve the issue with the mattress topper. There is too little stiching and, as a result, if two people sleep in the bed, the result is a large lump in the middle -- where the stuffing has shifted. When I went back and asked about this issue, I was told to walk on the topper. This is a ridiculous solution. Their sheets also shrink with normal washing. Definitely not worth the money.
After spending so much on a mattress I would expect it to be comfortable for many years. I have clear indentations on the bed, and asked customer service to help remedy the issue. They came over and told me a needed a new topper for $3200, and then it would be fixed. I bought the topper and 2 months later, the issue was not resolved. Customer service came back over to evaluate and told me to walk on the mattress to even it out. Definitely not worth purchasing to go thru all this trouble. Also, they said the $3k topper would remedy,w which it had no effect except ripping e off yet again.
We purchased a bed from Hastens about a year ago and could not be more dissatisfied. We've attempted just about everything to make the bed more comfortable (taking the topper off, putting on a wool mattress pad, cotton pad...). The bed is NOT worth the price and the horse hair toppers are just plain uncomfortable for everyday use (in the store they will feel great). My suggestion is to look elsewhere. Also, the bed weighs a ton, they'll tell you to flip and rotate it every few months, plan on getting a few people to help.
I originally bought three Hasten beds ($10,000+) for my home including a split king mattress/box-spring combo. Throughout the sales process, I was never warned of the issue of having a split king. The crack between the two mattresses has become a huge issue. In fact, they assured me that the crack was not an issue because of the pillow top that accompanied the bed. After contacting customer service for suggestions or for an appropriate remedy, what I expected was perhaps an offer to receive an additional mattress pad ($200) to help alleviate the feel of the crack. What I got was a "too bad for you" response. This to me, is unacceptable at these prices. Their customer service should be much better than this. If you buy one, better hope you do not ever have an issue with the bed.
I never thought about beds as an investment until I came here. The store is beautiful and staff super friendly. They even have their own parking lot which is rare in West Hollywood. A little bit about the actual experience.....I felt very little pressure to buy a bed. The associates were more than helpful in answering any questions that I had and the only thing they really wanted from me was to lie down and take a nap for 10-15 minutes. The product sells itself!!! The owner even invited me to come over and take a nap for a few hours (towards closing time). He didn't want to sell me a bed unless I really experienced it and enjoyed it. I had probably come into the store a half a dozen times by now. Each time I walked out empty handed. But every time I went in, they treated me as they would a new customer. Unlike other Hastens stores I have been to, this location also has a customer service team to visit local customers every 3 or 4 months to make sure the bed is working great and to massage the bed. They do require a little maintenance every now and then but it goes a long ways. A great product, awesome manufacturer warranty and superior customer service. I had to take the plunge.....What was I waiting for??? Long story short....I closed the deal and couldn't be happier!
The best bed in the world. Prices will range from 9000 all the way to 150,000. Yes. Dollars. Our salesperson (Peter) was professional but also friendly and just there to help you pick the best bed. We are happy with our Luxuria bed purchase and can't wait for it to arrive at our home.
First things first...if any company needs to see an example of outstanding customer service, look no further than the management and administration of Hastens on Beverly Blvd. My wife and I walked in to Hastens for the first time and were treated with the utmost respect and service. We ended up not only buying a mattress, but we also threw in some pillows, a mattress cover, and a comforter. Linus and Anna took excellent care of us. Just recently I also met Andre who was another absolute pleasure to speak to. One of the perks of Hastens is that you can choose a custom size bed. So my wife chose a slightly larger one. It turned out that standard sized sheets wouldn't fit our bed. So we called Hastens for help. Linus found us custom sheets and had them shipped to our home. The sheets fit perfectly. They are also very soft and strong. They have lasted very nicely. These beds are made with all natural "ingredients." So they don't harbor allergens like other beds. The beds are all handmade. The quality is so great that you never need to buy another bed again. They offer a 25 year warranty. And even offer a service to come out and flip and fluff your bed twice a year, for free. We have had our bed for 4 years now and it still feels like the first day. No pains. Sound sleeps. Sometimes, it's actually too comfortable. My wife can't keep her eyes open for more than 5 minutes after she enters the bed so we can never get through any movie together. So in conclusion, you invest once, and never really need to again, and on top of it you get service fit for kings for the rest of your life. You basically never have to worry about your bed. Someone is always watching out for you to make sure your purchase lasts and lasts.
I came to Hastens West Hollywood today to browse their selection of Swedish mattresses. The location of this Hastens is very central. It's on Beverly Blvd and Robertson. Beverly Blvd is lined with many high-end, hip furniture stores, so I wasn't expecting Hastens to stand out in my mind when compared to all the other stores. But surprisingly enough, I really enjoyed my experience at Hastens on Beverly! I found the owner to be down to earth, knowledgable and friendly. I liked how he really believes in his product and that he himself owns several Hastens beds due to the sheer quality and ergonomic support that each mattress provides. I liked how the store had a selection of all the different beds, from the very beautiful black fabric "Vividus" bed, which is thought to be the world's "most exclusive bed," to cute peach and white checkered twin beds for the children. My favorite? The country-quaint green and white checkered mattress at the far back left corner of the store. So cute!! So Spring!! The store itself looks very "Swedish." Light wood colored floors and most beds in the characteristic Hastens blue and white checkered cloth. I like the metal lift in the store for handicapped customers. I also like the ample free parking in the store front for customers as well! The silver/stainless steel accents are also a nice touch to the store's modern look. Hastens on Beverly is a really great place to shop! I was hoping to catch a glimpse of one of the celebrities that bought from this Hastens, but no such luck today!
This store would be a great place to hang out and read the paper because the beds are so comfortable. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and not pushy at all. Sverige är fantastiskt!
I would absolutely not recommend this company due to their poor customer service and being sold to on terms that they cannot fulfil. We placed the order with them based on their promises, but they have reneged - and all this is in the terms and conditions according to an email we have received from them, so there is nothing that we can about it. Communication is appalling. For a company that prides itself on sleep, they do not care about making life additionally stressful.
Very comfortable topper. Made a big difference sleeping and a lot less tossing and turning. Only complaint is the odor. It still has not gone away after three weeks. I am very sensitive to odors and have a keen sense of smell. The topper has a foam smell.View More Reviews
Opened the mattress topper and found a large 4 inch cut in the mattress topper (on the inside and not related to me opening the bag). Followed the instructions to give it 24 hours to open up and placed it on my bed. Slightly larger than my bed but within reason. Placed the enclosed mattress cover on the new mattress topper and my original mattress. The cover is smaller than the topper and had to be yanked to fit. The seam shows that it really is too small for the topper.
Either way, this is a trial to see if we want a new memory foam type of mattress but I would not buy this brand if their quality is this poor. I also would have no clue how to return this as it was smashed so tight and wrapped so tight to fit back into the box it was delivered would be impossible.
It took a few days to get used to the memory foam pad, but once i did i really like it - the density is just right. We have a new superfirm king mattress and this was the perfect combination to put on top to make the bed feel just right. I've only had this a month and am hoping that it keeps it's shape for some time, but even if i have to buy a new one, it will be cheaper than buying a whole new mattress that had the extra memory foam built in on the top. I put a regular quilted cotton mattress pad on top of the memory foam so it doesn't 'sleep hot' and is just right. I let the memory foam air out for a week before i put it on my bed and there is no chemical smell at all.
I was nervous about the smell that this mattress pad has mixed reviews on but desperate to get a chance at better sleep, due to severe neck and shoulder pain so I unwrapped and used it the first night after only 15 hours of airing/ expanding.. The odor was noticeable and certainly I would catch big quaffs of bad odor when I moved... So I decided to test my theory that if I " walked on the mattress cover in baby steps" over the day, about 4 different times, I would effectively squeeze out the odor and get fresh air into the cover. Well this intervention made s huge difference that the odor was not noticeable by my second night... So if you have a few minutes during the day of airing, try my method to see if it helps speed the airing process.. BTW: my neck and shoulder pain dropped by 60% within the 2 nights I used this... I used to dread going to bed but now I can't wait! ( placed this as a topper on a quality futon mattress). After further research, I am also going to cover my new topper with a waterproof mattress pad as research shows people lose at least a Pint of water every night and some of it soaks into the foam... I learned a lot about foam toppers and all bed types from the blog called "Sleep like the dead". ( I am sleeping on the futon b/c our bed is 16 yrs old and the futon is more new and is a high quality futon mattress.. Waiting to buy a new foam bed once I have saved all my penny's up.)
Very comfortable, great sleep until....my dog who has always preferred to sleep in his own bed discovered how much better my bed is to sleep on. Now I have to fight with an 80 pound dog for a few inches of space.......
We have a Number bed that has been uncomfortable almost since we bought it. Both my husband and I would wake up in pain, so we decided to research memory foam toppers. We found this one on Amazon at a fairly reasonable price compared to the ones on the Natures Sleep own website. Unfortunately it has not helped my aches and pains although we will continue to use it. It did not have an overpowering smell (and I am very sensitive to scents) and it was fully fluffed up in about 12 hours. We were not able to wait a full 24 hours to sleep on it so I was relieved it was full prior to then. I think our mattress is the real issue, not the topper so I am giving it 4 stars.
I am a long time user of memory foam bed toppers. I ordered this item because the dimensions and density looked perfect. Now, after sleeping on it for a week it is indeed just what I wanted. It is long enough and wide enough to fit my king size bed perfectly.
Very little prep, took out of box unrolled and let rest for a couple hours and it was ready for mattress cover and sheets.Guests say it was very comfortable sleeping, didn't shift or bunch. Also told me it did not make them feel hot. Great way to rejuvenate a tired mattress.
Both me and my wife are very in pressed by Nature's sleep Memory Foam mattress cover. I was a bit hesitant at first, but once I got it I didn't know how i ever got along without it. It's all but completely restored the softness to my worn out old mattress. It has made restless nights a thing of the past. Both my wife and I have not slept so well I years. Highly recommended.
We received this mattress topper as a wedding gift from my bridesmaid/best friend It has made all the difference for us and our sleep. It did smell a little at first, but we let it air for 24 hours and then there was very little residual odor. It doesn't bother me at all, and I tend to be very sensitive to smells and chemicals. As far as comfort, I wish we had bought this mattress pad a year ago! (We have two cats, and our cats really seem to enjoy the mattress pad too!) Our mattress is okay, but old, and kind of springy. The first night we slept on the mattress pad, we actually overslept. I woke up feeling well rested, which didn't used happen nearly as often as I would like. I'm only 29, but I have significant joint pain, especially in my left hip. It's been bad enough in recent months that I couldn't lie on my left side for more than 30 seconds. Now, with the mattress pad, I can lie on my left side without hardly any pain at all. My biggest problem now is that I don't want to get out of bed in the morning! I fall asleep faster, don't wake up in the middle of the night hardly ever (which used to be a big problem for me) and sleep later than I used to. For anyone who has trouble with joint pain or pressure points from their mattress, I highly recommend giving this topper a try! Bonus: the sheets still fit, no problem!
All the reviews we read said that the chemical smell of this topper was gone within a day or so. I expected some smell because it as memory foam, but the smell on ours was horrible. We placed it in the guest bedroom and even with the door closed the smell permeated the hallway. We had to open the windows to help eliminate the smell in the hallway. It took almost a week before enough of the smell was gone where we could move it to our bed. We have slept on it for a month and it is already losing its firmness. We bought this particular topper as it was suppose to be 4.5 density, but it is not performing like it. We can still smell the topper when we uncover the bed. For the money, we are disappointed with this topper and it definitely was not worth the money that we spent.
Updating after owning 1 year: This useless. It is kinda comfortable for a couple months. Then after that, it actually is worse than just an old mattress. The foam is cheap, and becomes worn out after just a few months. Don't waste your money or be fooled by the positive reviews. Most of which were paid for by the company.
This item is ok. It made my very firm, older mattress more comfortable, however, the "memory" bounce back lasts a couple weeks at best. It then just becomes, foam. There is a reason high quality foam mattresses and toppers cost more, because they are superior products. As I said, this product is ok. Still a little over priced for what you get. If you really want a foam topper, and can't afford a better quality one or a foam mattress, then this is a decent, lesser expensive alternative. But don't expect top quality at discount prices. You get what you pay for, and this is just ok.
We bought a new extra firm, king size mattress due to back pain. After a couple of weeks I thought the bed was just a little too hard. It was great for my back but my shoulders weren't so happy while side sleeping. It costs $150 to return the mattress and then you only get credit to exchange for another, more expensive mattress. This was an option, but in my opinion, not the best one. I ran across a review of the Nature's Sleep mattress topper. I bought the density and thickness that seemed good for our situation, and our problems are solved!
Some things others have mentioned-
1. The smell- yes, memory foam can have an odor. My experience with this topper is that it was very minimal smell and aired out within the first 24 hours as we let it come back to size. (It comes rolled tightly and vacuumed packed)
2. The height- It is 2.5" thick, so yes, it adds height to your bed, but we bought a low profile boxspring, and all is well.
3. Discoloration- our last bed had a memory foam topper attached. We have seen that memory foam products due tend to have a yellow color from exposure to light. This topper did have a few yellow discolored spots (in stripes almost) from areas where plastic wrap and tape were thicker. It won't show once it is on the bed, and is a natural thing that seems to happen to memory foam.
4. The cover- LOVE IT! It fits great over the topper, mattress, and mattress pad and feels great too.
5. Heat- We have not noticed any different in feeling hot with the topper on the bed.
Overall, seems like a great product for a great price. Highly recommend it! We have slept very well in the couple weeks since adding it our bed.
We were very hopeful when we ordered this seeing all of the other high reviews. As soon as the package arrived, we had our doubts. The foam was completely different than what was pictured. Instead of the off white, it was a dark grey. After the seller assured me that it was the same, just a different color, we put it on the bed. Three weeks into trying it, we finally removed it at 2:30 this morning. It was so hot and so soft that it was causing sleepless and restless nights. Very disappointed.
We received this mattress and followed the instructions. The one-page manual gives this disclaimer: "Memory foam may have a minor odor when the mattress topper is opened as a result of the unique manufacturing process. This odor is harmless..." This is an understatement! This mattress WILL (not may) have a strong odor. And that odor is NOT harmless; my wife got headache and I got a scratchy throat from our first night sleeping on it. It just smells like other memory foam pads made with formaldehyde and other carcinogenic volatile organic compounds. The specifications of the mattress on Amazon says CertiPUR-US approved. After our experience, I do not believe it! Where is the proof that the mattress that I received is CertiPUR-US approved? Nothing in the manual that I received states that! There is no included certification in the product.
Best decision I have ever made, I have an older spring mattress and was starting to get lower back pain after tossing and turning at night....did a ton of research and found this topper to be a good one with the higher density rating 3.5lbs - 4.5lbs. Lots of the toppers you see on here do not even mention their density and if they are only 2lbs - 2.5lbs you will fall right through and be wasting your money. This topper does not get hot like the older ones and is comparable to the gel toppers that way. I can actually sleep through the night now and I find that I did not even realize I had been getting horrible interrupted sleep for 10 plus years! I feel so much better now in the mornings and find myself wanting to lay down on my bed for 30min everyday right after work to take the pressure off my spine and decompress. I even got a personal call from the owner of Natures Sleep because I had found the topper on sale for $50 less right after mine was delivered, he credited me back $50 on my VISA without any issues.
Amazing product, amazing owner/developer and I would buy this again and again, if you don't have $800-$1,500 to spend on a new mattress right away, get the topper like I did and you will be amazed and how well you can sleep! I'm saving up now for a Nature Sleep mattress and it will be my next purchase. Don't be afraid to just buy it, stop looking up more info online and getting more and more confused....I promise you will not be sorry you purchased this topper. I am a real person, 32 years old Father of 2, 6'3" 200lbs that loves his sleep!!! Good Luck!
Not that soft - bought a cheaper version from Costco several years ago and it was MUCH better. If you have your thermostat set at 70 or less then the pad is stiff and hard. Also, the cover that was shipped with the unit was yellow and stained. GROSS
I am pregnant and purchased this topper to help with extreme hip pain. The topper came in a medium-sized box and was wrapped very tightly in plastic. My husband opened it and was blown over by the fumes. We decided to let it air out, not knowing how much time it would need. I gave it a solid week (out of necessity). We draped it over a chair outside during the day and brought it in our garage at night. It made the entire 3-car garage stink. After a week I was desperate for some pain relief from my hips & decided to try it on the bed anyway. I could barely take the smell. I slept on it for 3 nights. It does help take the pressure off my hips but it made my low back (near tailbone) hurt instead. Also, it feels like I am sleeping in a ravine. No sleep. I tossed and turned all three nights (currently up at 4am writing this review). Now I am terrified that I have ruined my regular mattress with toxic fumes. I hope the smell goes away. I have requested a full refund from the company....we'll see if they take it back.
Update: The company owner contacted me to try to make things right. I highly respect this as it is rare to receive good customer service. I changed my 1 star (described as "I hate it" by Amazon's rating system) rating to 2 stars (described as "I don't like it). I could not give it three stars ("It's okay") because it was not okay for me. I'm not out to ruin anyone's reputation. It did help with my hip pain, but it also did cause back pain. However, my mattress might also be the culprit to the foam mattress topper sinking. So, in all fairness, I can't blame it all on the mattress topper. I have no idea how it performs on a different surface. I cannot, however, adjust my opinion on the smell. It was just too much for me. But, this does not seem to be a consistent complaint with other users of this product, so maybe I'm particularly sensitive.
Seemed OK but the cover had yellow stains that looked like tape. Another review mentions this. Item arrived quickly but with no instructions or packing slip. There was a small tear in the foam (not from opening I guarantee). Decided to return rather than risk it my $200+
I was thinking it was a mistake to order this mattress. It had a strong smell and seemed too hard. But when I got out of bed after sleeping on it the first night I was amazed.
My feet were not pins and needles when I stepped out of bed. My
back felt great. No pain or stiffness anywhere on my body. I actually look forward to getting in bed at night and feeling the support and comfort this topper added to my mattress.
I still get a bit of the chemical smell sometimes but nothing too strong. The only thing I would do differently would be to order the slightly lower density. Research of toppers states a 4.5 or higher is for heavier people. (250 lbs). I think the 3.5 to 4 density would be better because I am a petite flower. Hahaha
Just received my new CA King 2.5" Mattress topper. After unpacking and letting topper air out and expand for 24-hours, I just slept on it for the first time last night. My husband & I both have tons of back, neck, shoulder and hip problems. He has arthritis (also has 2 artificial hips) and I do not. This morning I woke up after suffering so bad for so long and feel 75% better in just one night. My hubby says while topper is very comfortable, it will take him a lot longer to notice the difference due to his arthritis. I'll write another (updated) review later on when hubby sleeps on it for another few weeks. For me, I'm elated to finally have slept much more sound with less tossing and turning. I was able to get right out of bed in the morning and not feel so crooked. Would highly recommend this exact product. The 4.5 lb density is just the right amount of support for tall, heavier people without having to feel like you're sinking it. I also suffer from severe hot flashes and what I love about this topper is it does NOT make me hot. Yeay!!!
We left it, unfolded, in the garage for 4 days to remove any smell from the material. We gutted our pillow top mattress and replaced the foam within with this piece. What a difference and at a price that was a fraction of the cost to replace the whole mattress. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
I did the same as another reviewer, bought a firm bed but it was a bit too firm. I got the topper, a twin, because my husband was OK with the firmness of the mattress --we have a king. It is working great, the pressure points I felt from the regular mattress on my shoulders and hips has been softened by the mattress and I can again sleep on my back.. It's perfect for what I need and it's nice to know it is certified to have a low VOC emissions, no formaldehyde or prohibited phthalates and other materials that are toxic.
We bought this after reading all of the positive reviews. I was so excited to put this on the bed and finally get a decent night's sleep. We are on the 4th night of "trying" to sleep on it, and we both have had the worst sleeping experience ever. I have pain in my back, shoulder and neck that didn't exist prior to using it. It's coming off the bed today and we are going mattress shopping. It seems like a quality product and it is obviously good for some, but we are sadly disappointed. Our mattress has slight indentations from where we slept before. I read a review from a customer that stated the topper filled in the indentations and left her bed flat. This is not true. In fact, it seems to amplify the indentations by falling into them. You can both see and feel this. In addition, the mattress cover that came with it has stains that appear to have come from the factory.
Did a bunch of research and took the gamble of buying this pad with the hope of extending the life of an old mattress and it has paid off. The original mattress had been regularly flipped and rotated so any depressions were not extremely deep but noticeable to the eye. I'll be adding this to the new mattress when the time comes.
I was very Leary at first. Been sleeping on it for over a month now. It's great. Like buying a whole new bed. The slightest smell will go away... Really! It is not beige either! Its a grey color...this bugged me at first, just because I wasn't expecting that. It's worth the money. So happy with it.
Very Nice memory foam topper. I have a nice memory foam bed but needed a little extra support and this hit the spot.
Also mine was a nice topper is a nice grey color unlike many ive seen on here commenting.
Absolutely love this product, it is like magic . I ended up flipping over my extremely soft mattress, so that the hard part was facing up and put on the mattress topper. and put on the mattress topper. For the first time, we woke up with no aches and pains and no stiff neck. It's comfortable, and the perfect softness/hardness! Don't buy new mattress, you don't need one! Just got this . It's amazing!
We've owned the high end memory foam mattress and the more affordable widely advertised memory foam mattress. We weren't satisfied with either. We used the Cool IQ toppers on a standard mattresses with much better results. It worked so well we did it for all our bedroom sets. Continued lower back pain with memory foam, air, and standard mattresses. Combine the topper with a standard mattress and the lower back pain is gone.
The Natures Sleep Cool IQ topper has transformed a new mattress that was too firm into a mattress that is very comfortable. Before the topper I would wake up with stiff muscles and bad back pain. Now I'm sleeping much better with no stiffness and have little or no pain when I wake up. (I've suffered with a bad back all my life.) I like this topper because I don't sink into a hole as happens with some memory foam mattresses. Also, there has been no pungent odor. The day the mattress arrived I put it on my bed and slept on it that night with no problem. And feeling hot during the night has also not been a problem at all. For your information, I'm a side sleeper. It's been a great purchase!
This is a must have item for all us deployed service members. This makes the thin mattress with all the springs poking out feel like your comfy bed back home. This mattress pad shipped and got to me within 2 weeks of ordering which is impressive considering I'm down in austere Kenya. Best 119.00 bucks I've spent this year.
I was a little surprised that the foam was a dark grey instead of white or cream like all the posted pictures show. It did have a smell to it for the first several days but that has now gone away. I am sleeping much more comfortable.
I am the kind of person who is always cold, so I did not see a reason to buy a mattress topper with the "cooling" feature in the description (I have hypothyroid disease, so my body temperature drops at night more than most people). The first night I slept on this thing, I felt like was about to spontaneously combust! The second night, I cranked down the ac. My toes were freezing and my back was on fire. The mattress topper itself is quite comfortable, and seems to be made well. The off-gassing, normally associated with memory foam, was not that bad, it was really quite mild (my mom had one that stank for weeks). However, I tossed and turned all night on this thing to try and get away from the unbelievable heat. I understand now that the point of the cooling toppers is not necessarily to make you cool, but to keep most of the heat from collecting. This one will be returned. If you are the kind of person who can never stay warm, who knows, this may be a good choice for you.
My purchased of this product was due to a review stating that they had purchased a few different toppers and this one was the best they had experienced. This was my first topper. My first night sleeping there were a couple of immediate noticeable positives, I did not need a pillow between my legs while on my side and I didn't need any extra pillows. It was the most comfortable I had felt in many years. I have had shoulder and neck pain for three years and after the first night of sleep it was immediately diminished. My husband has had hip pain for over a year and immediately noticed an improvement just lying down, after 3 nights his hip pain was gone. Obviously our mattress was the cause of pain. This is well worth the investment!
I purchased the topper in hopes of delaying having to buy a new mattress and so far so good. I've only slept on the topper 3 nights but have I've noticed a difference in my back pain--it's a lot better. If it helps for the next few months, it will be worth the investment.
VERY pleased with the item, as well as my entire experience with this company! The memory foam is amazing, and definitely beat my expectations! (First time bed topper purchase ever! Makes an old mattress from my grandparents [circa 1970's], itself--like a bedrock from flinstones--hard, feel like a brand new luxury pillowtop!) The company offered me very great customer service when I needed to contact them regarding my purchase; very satisfied with their product backing on quality and also their very timely response with customer inquiry. Thank you greatly!! (Saved me $1,300+ on a new King mattress!)
This is the second time I've purchased this topper, which should tell you something, since I don't buy mediocre twice. I did a lot of research before buying and found that it was more about the density than the thickness of the topper itself. Since I've had the other one for several months now, I can tell you that it is both comfortable and durable. My only complaint is about the scent. It lasted a little longer than I expected, but it did fade away completely after a few days. All in all, it's a great product.
We are enjoying the extra support , however I do not believe that "cool " can be achieved in any foam topper . Also a chocking smell when we opened the package , it disappeared after a couple of days.
I've had back problems for the last couple of years. I would wake up every morning with pain and it would take me an hour to get pain free again. I decided to try a foam mattress but it was a bit hard. Bought this topper and it has made all the difference. So far no back pain and it is soooo comfortable, not too hard/soft. I'm hoping this trend continues.
My husband and I are sleeping much better. The topper is extremely comfortable. It takes about an hour or two to fluff up after being folded in the packaging. All of the crease marks come out eventually.
