So this doesn’t have much to do with fitness, well I guess it does a little because sleep plays an important role in muscle development, but anyways, about a few weeks ago Melinda and I ordered the Serta 4″ Memory Foam Mattress Topper because our backs have been hurting quite a bit recently. For a little background info, Melinda and I got a new bed about a year ago, but have had a very hard time sleeping on it comfortably because apparently it’s not as good as we thought. Maybe it’s the firmness, but whatever it is, the bed just plain stinks, so I decided to do a little research online and find a mattress topper that would allow us to sleep comfortably all throughout the night without waking up and get rid of our back issues. After reading quite a few reviews, I decided to settle on the Serta Memory Foam Mattress Topper.
Serta Mattress Topper Review
First of all, I have to say that Overstock.com is awesome! That’s where I ordered it because it was about 30% off the original price, and plus, we payed about $2 for shipping, which is unheard of for something so large. Anyways, we received the product about 4 days after we ordered it, and opened it up right away so that it could have time to expand before we slept on it that night. We decided to go with the 4″ memory foam because we thought that anything less wouldn’t be enough cushion. It came nicely packaged and the instructions explained pretty well how to open it up properly (even though it’s as simple as getting some scissors and cutting the bag open). It had a faint smell at first, but that seemed to disappear the longer it had been out of the bag.
It took some adjusting the first night we slept on it because it was so soft and cushiony, if that’s even a word, that we weren’t used to it, so we tossed and turned a little. Plus, it seems that the memory foam absorbs your body heat, so you can easily get very warm if you don’t have a fan on you during the night, which is what happened to us. I think we tossed more due to being hot rather than the softness, though. However, on the plus side, the memory foam really molds to your body and it’s very easy to get comfortable immediately. Plus, I never felt Melinda move around during the night, and she is always moving! The next day we decided to go out and purchase another fan, which really seemed to do the trick! We slept awesome that night, and are very excited to continue using our new Serta Mattress Topper! What’s best of all, though, is that fact that neither of us wake up with back pain anymore!
If you’re looking for a good mattress topper, you can’t go wrong with the Serta Memory Foam topper. Definitely something that Melinda and I both highly recommend!
