Rated 4 out of 5 by Renard Improves comfort
I'm using this w/ 2 other layers, + a very inflexible mattress, long story.
It's a big help. Definitely worth it.
One tip if you're using a lot of layers like me, and your fitted sheet won't cover them all or is tight, use a fitted sheet just to cover this pad separately on top. I know that sounds weird and not the best aesthetic choice, but it really improves the "give" and cradling effect, and keeps it from torquing because there is too much surface tension if it is pulled tight, as I was initially doing. I was afraid that not anchoring it to the mattress would mean that it moved out of place, but not so for me.
Also, our cat liked to scratch a flat foam pad, but keeps claws off this one, though she enjoys sleeping on it.
Finally if you are considering cutting the twin size to make it narrower, don't. I can see by looking at it that it was better to have an inch of uncovered bed on either side than to cut it, which would have compromised its integrity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosie Excellent product.
I bought this to use on my son's bed after he began complaining that his bed felt like a "dip in the middle and he kept sliding into it." I bought the Isotonic topper and slipped it under his mattress cover.....he doesn't know it's there but loves his bed now and says it's very comfortable. It beats buying a new bed. I just fluff it a bit when I change his bedding and it's like new. I'm glad that I made this decision. I also bought it on sale at Penney's so it is a financially wise choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by di19 Looks a lot different then others, but feels great!
I have only had the Isotonic topper for a few weeks now, took me a few days to get adjusted to it, but since then i have woke up with almost no back pain. I never "sleep in" usually my back tells me it's time to get up after about 6 or 6-1/2 hours of sleep. Twice since purchasing the topper i have slept 8 hours and one day 10 hours. That is very unusual for me, so i am impressed.
Don't expect to have a flat sheet any longer, all the bumps show through it, but with the comforter over that it doesn't really matter.

I was looking for a topper for our 2 year old pillow top Sealy mattress. I saw something like 285 reviews for this one so I dug in and read the majority of the reviews and ended up ordering it -- on sale! I saved more than I spent, which was marvelous. Then I received the item, let it air out for 24 hours, and placed it on our bed. My sleep has improved 500% in the three nights the topper has been in place. I highly recommend this topper for the ease in placement, the incredible support it offer my horrid back, the sturdiness of it, the way it is formed to give extra support where it's needed most. We absolutely love this topper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sleepingbetteralready BEST TOPPER PURCHASE EVER
I read all the reviews before selecting this topper. The fact that the material is very sturdy was the REAL reason I bought this particular topper. I previously owned a foam topper (egg crate type) and it didn't last. I wanted something that was heavier in material and more durable. So thank you everyone for your comments and reviews. I took the bad reviews with a grain of salt. Sometimes we just get bad products. My topper had no smell what-so-ever. I did open it and let it setup for about 10 hours so the material had time to expand. I don't have money for a new mattress so this was an economical alternative until I could save up enough money. But now I won't need a new mattress for awhile. Great product! Those who are debating on which to buy - don't hesitate - this is a great purchase. A little pricey, but WORTH every penny.
PS - the first night I had this on my bed, I slept for 10 hrs. straight and I have a very bad back!!! How's that for a review!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CountingSheep So comfortable, no need to buy a new mattress!
My husband felt that our current mattress was too firm. He was having shoulder pain from sleeping on his side. Before buying a new mattress, I suggested we try a mattress topper. The Isotonic Memory Foam topper was highly rated. That, combined with the JC Penney White Sale, made it an obvious choice. It arrived with a note suggesting we air it out for several hours before use. We did, and there was very little residual odor. The first night we slept on it, we knew it was the solution to our problem. My husband now comfortably sleeps on his side. I liked our firm mattress and this topper has made it even more comfortable. I was worried that it would make it too squishy, but it didn't. Also, I haven't really noticed that I feel warmer while sleeping on it (a concern brought up by some reviewers). We'll have to wait and see if it feels too warm in the summer months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momxs3 Well worth the money
My expensive mattress is only a few years old, but for some reason I just could not get comfortable on it anymore. Instead of spending more money on a new one I've been trying to make it more comfortable with plush, poly/fiber filled toppers, but they loose shape and go flat in areas where you need the support. I wasn't sure about the foam topper because it didn't look comfortable, but WOW! It's like laying on a supportive cloud! I didn't realize just how badly I was sleeping until I got this topper. I wake up refreshed with no aches, pains, or sore spots. I don't flop around all night trying to get comfortable, and the moment I lay on it I can feel the pressure and tension in my body melt away. As for the smell, I have a very sensitive nose, and I found it to be very subtle. I layed it out across my bed so it could fully expand since it arrives compressed, and by the time I was ready to make my bed to get in it (about 5 hours later) it smelt like a normal mattress. I love this topper and can't recommend it enough! I just ordered one for my mom and one for each of my kids. It's money very well spent!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bartrader Just the right solution
This summer we bought an ultra firm king mattress after 8 years on a pillow-top that had quit providing adequate support. The new mattress was a bit too firm but the next level down was too soft, so I purchased this topper hoping it could provide a slightly more comfortable experience that made side-sleeping not so hard on hips and shoulders. So far it is working...I've had it about 6 weeks. The memory foam seems to 'remember' its shape. I plan to rotate the king mattress a quarter turn along with the topper every 4 months to keep bed and topper in shape! Mattress salesman suggested doing that since king size is almost a square shape anyway. At least it's something to save mattress since we can't flip them anymore!
