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 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!!!!

Not enough support. Would not recommend. I wrote a more detailed review but it was not accepted. I don't know why so hopefully this one makes it online.

The Isotonic mattress topper is everything it was advertised to be. It arrived early, fits the bed perfectly and my sleep comfort has greatly increased. I would recommend the Isotonic to anyone wish to ease back pain and discomfort.

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 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 2 out of 5 by RetiredIowan Not the Topper for Us
I suffer from hip bursitis and have pain during the night. We have a Sleep Number bed and I always keep my side much softer than my wife's in an attempt to alleviate some of the discomfort. After much research I talked my wife into our buying this topper when it went on sale, since I had read in other reviews that it helps hip pain. As others have commented, there was a strong odor at first, but that left after an airing in the garage. Of greater concern is the topper being at least three inches narrower than our queen bed, as well as shorter. On checking the enclosed sheet listing the dimensions of the various sizes, it appears that ALL are a bit smaller than standard bed sizes. I'm surprised more people haven't commented on this. Even so we could have adjusted. But, after eight nights we removed the topper, since my wife was having physical issues because of the softness. And, my sleep was more restless, with no relief from my bursitis. In short, it was a disappointment. We gave the topper to our grandson for use on his bed whenever he is home from college, since he said he likes soft mattresses. Obviously this topper works well for many people, but not for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarolinaGirl Great Value and comfort!
I decided to purchase this topper after reading many reviews. This item had great reviews and the price was great. I've had the product for about a week and a half. It's a cheaper alternative to buying a new mattress. I agree there is a smell originally once you receive the product, but I just let it air out a couple of days before placing it on my bed. My bed is now super comfy!
