Anyone know how these toppers compare to this?
Also, what would be the differences between the gel and Memory Foam toppers offered here?
Was considering buying two toppers to add density and thought maybe getting one of each might be a good idea?
And ummmm, I live in South Florida, DO NOT want something that's gonna burn me up at night retaining heat so....
All the answers to your questions can be found here:
I've had every type of bed (inner spring, water, adjustable air, memory foam), and when I went shopping for a new one, I found the forum on the Mattress Underground to be incredibly valuable. The moderator there answers questions quickly and comprehensively -- check out the site, you'll find that someone has probably already asked your question, and he's answered it. I ended up going with a latex bed as a result of what I learned there, and love it. Bought it online, and saved a lot of money compared to dealing with the shysters at bedding stores (and definitely saved money compared to name brands like Tempurpedic -- I've had one, they're good beds, but unnecessarily expensive ... check Amazon or other direct-sale sites).
The person who said that the topper is going to make the bed even softer is correct -- and that might not be good for someone with a bad bad. Plus, 3.5-lb density is not very dense at all, so it'll be soft and not last too long. Typically, you want something that is at least 4.5-lb density or above.
