I Love My Memory Foam Mattress Topper - Now I'm Not Buying a New Mattress Set

A couple of years ago, I had one of the TV shopping networks on in the background while I was writing, and succumed to the purchase of a "featherbed" mattress topper.  It seemed like such a great idea, and when I first got the thing aligned on the bed with the sheets fitting just fine, things were fabulous.  It was like I was sleeping on a cloud.

Except it didn't last long.  Things settled, and no matter what I did, the experience was never as good as it was when that feather-stuffed topper first came out of the package.  I decided mattress toppers were bunk.

Then, a couple of months ago, I was pondering buying a new mattress set.  What a conundrum.  Sleep Number, Memory Foam, pillow top -- so many decisions.  Headache.

Before you know it, I'm wandering through my favorite WalMart and there is a whole aisle of mattress toppers there.  At decent prices.  And there's one for a thick memory foam topper.  Now, I already had a memory foam pillow that I'd fight for, so this caught my interest.

I rambled home, and began surfing around, checking out the memory foam mattress topper.  It got great reviews -- in fact, the exact same one that I had spotted at WalMart was rated the highest in the land by some comparison site (that I can't remember right now).

So, I went back to WalMart and caught a sale.  Dear Reader, I'm sure you understand the inner realization that I had that returning to find this product on sale was a sign. So, voila, a new Memory Foam mattress topper for less than $100.00.  Much, much cheaper than a whole new mattress set.

Now, it's been months since my purchase.  And the Memory Foam mattress topper has held up.  It's also solved any issues that I had with my old mattress set, and I'm not planning on replacing the set any longer. 

I cannot tell you how great this Mattress Topper is for sleeping.  One hint:  my terrier mix jumps up on that topper every night about 10:00 p.m., and starts periodically barking for lights out.  She will not move again from that spot for ten hours.

To check out the Memory Foam Mattress Topper that I have, you can see the product at Walmart's site plus read over 400 5-star reviews of the wonderful thing.

Memory foam mattresses:-There are a variety of mattress manufacturers but it is essential that you buy a mattress that is genuine. There are a lot of products in the market that use imitation memory foam. Make sure you are careful to choose the genuine one. You can easily order memory foam mattresses online at your convenience. There are also memory foam pillows available in the market that take the shape of your head and support your neck so you don’t suffer from neck pain.

I completely agree. After having tried several different mattress toppers, I finally settled on my memory foam mattress which has never failed me. It is sooooo good for my back which used to pain me throughout the day if I didnt sleep exactly right. The best part of these mattresses is that they have become very affordable as well.

James and Mattress,
Thanks for writing! And mattress, thx for the comment on the photo, I kinda thought it was funny myself.

Meanwhile, update: it's right at 11 pm and the terrier mix is barking away, the topper is still absolutely wonderful: both my pup and I still think it's great.

Thx again! God bless!

Your post highlights one of the biggest benefits of a memory topper: they can extend the life of a structurally sound but uncomfortable mattress, saving you the money you would have otherwise spent on a total replacement. They can be a smart financial decision just as much as a smart comfort decision.
