Serta Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper Features

Upon analysis the instructions, I was a small disconcerted to uncover it may take as much as 72 hrs for the mattress topper to conform to my bed. I was absolutely delighted once it rolled out flat and fit my bed perfectly! The comfort gods were certainly on my side.

In enhancement to that, I was elated as soon as I check out that the gel in the foam is formulated to be cool and also regulates itself to your body temperature. As a post-menopausal womale, I still endure from night sweats. Well, not really night sweats so a lot anymore as night heat. That’s one more reason I don’t sleep comfortably. I should have actually my bedding cold to sleep well. It’s a damn good thing I sleep alone. My queen-sized bed permits me to switch sides as soon as I come to be also hot—which is one more reason I don’t sleep well. By the method, as soon as does that shit end??

Oh, I virtually forgot to cite that this product is made in the USA. Way to go, Serta!

Questions & Answers

Question: My mattress topper came through a 17"-deep cloth "sheet"/cover. Did you put one of your flat sheets on the topper and also then put the towel cover over it?

Answer: No, I put the topper inside the cover it came via. After placing the topper on the mattress, I put a fitted mattress protector over that, then made the bed as I typically perform (fitted sheet followed by the flat).

Question: I've had my Serta Rest 3" Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper for a pair of months and also my ago pain is proceeding, is yours still functioning for you?

Answer: Yes, it's still functioning for me. I have actually mine egg cprice side up and turn it (rotate) as soon as a year or so. If you have your topper level side up, trying flipping it to see if that works much better for you.

Question: I added a waterproof fitted cover over the mattress topper and also then the cooling cover on top. Will this still make the topper work-related properly? I was afrhelp of any crashes and also messing up my topper.

Answer: I don't watch why having a waterproof cover directly over the existing mattress would certainly impede the cooling impact of the Serta topper. However before, if you're trying to prevent messing up the topper because of "mishaps", the waterproof cover won't help. Fluids will certainly go with the topper regardmuch less. All the waterproof sheet does is defend the mattress beneath.

Annette, I've had mine for a couple of years (bought a brand-new one and offered the old one to my son). I sleep in a queen size bed, alone favor you. However before, I switch sides all through the night, (a plus of not having actually a sleep partner!), so I have actually no indentations.

How thick is your topper? Double check the manufacturer's warranty. Could be you have a faulty product. I'd check out about exchanging it if it's end up being misshapen after such a brief period of time. Also, which side do you have facing up? The egg cprice side or the flat side? I have the egg cprice side facing up and also have actually had actually no problems via it.

I absolutely love my topper but unfortunately after 2 weeks I have uncovered I am allergic to something the topper is made through. This provides me sad given that it has aided a lot through my Pain. I am sure it is rare to have actually someone allergic to the materials it is made of. Just wanted to put this out here in case someone else ends up via major allergies both to my skin and breapoint and also it took me another 2 weeks before I figured out what was causing the allergies.

Thanks, Sha! Our mattress is pretty shot after 10+ years, so we have to replace it anymeans. But it's good to recognize that the gel memory foam really is cooling and also that it's not just a marketing gimmick (which my husband assumed it might be). Great review!

I love my topper. I don't wake up in pain and it does market cooling comfort while I sleep. I recommend you attempt this topper before putting money out for a full-blvery own mattress and see exactly how well it works for you.

Keep me posted!

Margaret Schindel from Massachusetts on May 23, 2017:

Sha, great review! My husband and I both have ago pain (and I have actually hip pain as well), and we've found that sleeping on a memory foam mattress has actually made a vast difference. But ours is 10 years old and isn't as durable as it was as soon as it was a "spring chicken." ;) So we're in the industry for a replacement. I tend to be cold when I'm worn down, so I have actually the covers up to my chin even in reasonably warmth weather, yet then wake up sweating in the middle of the night. So I've been wanting to attempt a gel memory foam mattress this time, which is intended to be cooling. I understand this gel memory foam topper hasn't taken amethod your night sweats (that would be a tall order for any type of product!), but I'd love to know whether you've found that you're any cooler at night given that you've been using this topper. Inquiring minds want to recognize - many thanks exceptionally much! Looking forward to your answer. :)
