    Amazon.com: Sleep Studio Ventilated 3-Inch Thick Memory Foam Mattress Enhancer with Two Contour Pillows, Full: Home & Garden

    I bought this on sunday & it already arrived! It was $84, but I see the price has gone up since then. Maybe it's a sale they will run again.

    I was planning on buying a $200 memory foam topper until I found this one. The reviews were great. The main complaint was that it was too small so I ordered a queen size one for our full sized bed. On Sunday they were the same price. It wasn't hard to trim it to fit.

    The other problem would be that you would need deep pocket sheets. We already had them. I love how tall our bed is now.

    Mike has been wanting a new matress, but I didn't want to buy one because I know we will be replacing our bed in 2-3 years once we have a larger bedroom and can get a king. We definitly don't need a new matress now. It's so comfortable!! Even on the floor it's comfortable. I can't wait for bed time tonight.

    Oh, it also came with two pillows. They are pretty good, but not amazing.

    I'll update my review after my first full night of sleep. I've already napped though & it was wonderful :)

        I've been looking into them too!! We desperately need a new bed, but don't want to buy one until we buy a house, but that could be months still so I need something to keep us going til then! Can't wait to hear your review!

          oh, joe and i had one of these on our old bed. we LOVED it. it kept joe from flopping like a fish at night, and therefor i slept well!

          only downside is that it makes you warmer.. like it retains your body heat? but i definitely got used to that quickly

          we've actually discussed getting one for our new bed, just because we liked it so much. and everyone that stays in our guest room loves that bed. and it's definitely because of the topper!

            We got a mattress topper from Costco for around $100. It has a 4in memory foam layer with a 2 inch pillow topper that goes on top. It is fabulous! My back feels much better that it used to. We do have 2 contour pillows that FI got on sale somewhere and I only use it if my neck is hurting. It seems to put my neck at the right angle and my head and neck will stop hurting sometime through the night.

            I highly recommend the memory foam mattress toppers. Worth the money.

            I used to have the memory foam, but it was just too warm for me in the summer. So now we have a feather bed with a down top. It's cooler because air circulates better. It's not the same, but it's definitely comfy!

              It was great! I didn't toss & turn. I woke up in the spot I went to sleep in. My back feels really good.

              It was warmer. It didn't feel warmer to me, but I was a little sweaty this morning.

                I put a thin, cotton matress protector on top of the foam & it took care of the heat problem. I guess that was enough of a barrier to keep the foam from absorbing body heat.

                I'm sleeping so good!

                  Funny, I ordered a foam topper the other day, it's supposed to arrive tomorrow!

                  We currently have a down featherbed which is nice but we've heard such good things about memory foam we wanted to try it out.

                    well if it's too warm, try putting the layer over it. it really helps.
