I previously reviewed our MyPillow pillows, which we still love. Because the pillows were such a hit in our home, we also opted to buy the MyPillow mattress topper.
I wanted to wait a while to review the mattress topper. For me, it was as important, if not more important, than the pillows. Plus, it is a lot more expensive than pillows, therefore I wanted to make sure it was worthy of my recommendation. Now that we have been sleeping on the topper for 4 months, I believe I can give you a review based on experience, not just first impressions.
For me, a mattress topper is not just about making a bed more comfortable. It is about being able to sleep through the night without experiencing discomfort from being too soft or too hard. Both can result in pain. My days of sleeping on floors or on the ground, long ago passed.
Why I Need a Great Mattress Topper
I have mentioned in past articles that I was born with severe scoliosis (curvature of the spine). Because of the multiple curves in my spine, as well as having a pronounced raised hip on one side, I do experience pain, especially if I do not have good support when sleeping or sitting. My mattress matters a lot to me, as I think it does to everyone, whether they suffer with scoliosis or not. I'm not quick to embrace any kind of change. However, it was time for a new mattress on our bed.
|When You Hear the Price of a New Mattress|
When we got home, I promptly went online and ordered a Memory Foam mattress topper. The Memory Foam Topper price in 2017 was $116.00, clearly significantly less than $15,000. I had to wait several days after we received it to put it on the bed. It smelled awful! It took a while for it to air out enough to be able to sleep on it, but I felt this was a good compromise.
The MyPillow Mattress Topper
After sleeping on our MyPillow pillows for a month, I decided to try the MyPillow Mattress Topper too. My Memory Foam mattress topper was now 3 years old. My husband described its condition as having to sleep in craters. Okay, so it had clear recesses. I guess it's "memory" of our body impressions was just a little too good, but I was still not in the mood to spend an automobile price on a new mattress and the Memory Foam mattresses were no longer available. So, we bought the MyPillow mattress topper.MyPillow Three-inch Mattress Bed Topper (King)
The first week was a real adjustment for me. It was harder than the Memory Foam, but I was definitely sleeping through the night and waking up pain-free. After a month, all was still well and I no longer thought it was too firm. After 4 months, I can say, with certainty, that this mattress topper is the right choice.
