Rated 4 out of 5 by BornConfuzed You sink into this mattress pad
I bought this pad because we have a pretty ancient mattress and can't spend money on a good one yet so this is a stop gap between now and when we can spend real $$ on a mattress. This was a bit dauntingly pricey for me but with a black friday sale I went for it. I'm glad I stretched my budget. It does have that memory foam smell. But we didn't let it air out before putting it on the bed and having had it almost two weeks the smell is almost gone. My joints love this thing. Before my lower back was always sore when morning came as were my hips (I'm a side sleeper). Now I'm only sore if I've slept in a weird position. I can't speak to its durability having had it less than a month but so far so good.
My only gripe is it is slightly smaller than our standard queen mattress but not by enough to make it an actual problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorie Very Comfortable Mattress Topper
My husband and I love this mattress topper. We are both waking up less often during the night. I also no longer wake up with numbness in my arms. There was an odor when we opened the plastic but it disappeared after a few days.

This mattress topper is very comfortable - I haven't slept this well in ages. We both toss and turn less and feel great in the morning. I'd rate it 5 stars but the cover does have an odor. I washed it once - right out of the box - but it is still there, diminished but still there. I plan on washing it again and hope it will go away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat202 Very pleased!
A few years ago we got a sleep number bed and have never been happy with it. So several months ago we bought an inexpensive foam mattress pad (4 in thick) online and it was an improvement. But we both still had occasional back issues and I really didn't like how hot it got, particularly in the summer. So we decided to try this topper and it is terrific! We are using it with a mattress pad with a little loft in it on our sleep number mattress and we are both sleeping great. We have had it for two weeks now and it has made a big difference. A heck of a lot cheaper than buying a new mattress!

Product had a distinct odor and was uncomfortably warm to sleep on; we returned it to LL Bean. This is the first and only product from LL Bean with which we have been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caseydog Just What We Needed
We brought a firm mattress set 6 months and this memory form topper is just what we needed. There was a slight smell when it was taken out of the plastic bag but once it was on the bed we couldn't notice the smell. A little pricey, but worth it.

This mattress pad is amazing! It would make a piece of plywood comfortable. I agree with the "ahhhh" comment above. We say that every night when we get into bed.

The topper was bought for a college dorm. It fit the mattress top perfectly and made the mattress much more comfortable, we are very pleased with it and would definitely recommend it.

This topper is amazing. I have been using it for about 5 months. When I get into bed at night, I immediately have that "ahhh" feeling of being completely comfortable. It has just the right amount of give vs. support.
I have struggled with back pain all of my adult life. #I'm 54# We have a sleep number bed. I tested every possible percent of air in the bed and also went to the store to confirm that I was sleeping at the correct number. Yet I still woke up stiff and with daily back discomfort. I did back stretches and strengthening exercises every day. I rolled my back on a Styrofoam log to release my back tension. I visited my chiropractor and tried anti-inflammatories. I had an MRI which showed some degeneration and a herniated disc #who doesn't have some of that at our age??#. I consulted with my orthopedic doctor.
Then I slept at a friend's house who has an LL Bean mattress topper on her guest room bed. It was the BEST night's sleep despite being in a TWIN bed! I woke up refreshed and pain free. I wasn't sure if I felt great because I was away from home, lol, or if it was the topper. When I had the same result the next time I visited, I decided to indulge in buying one. Yes it is expensive, but worth every penny.
I wake up PAIN FREE every single morning. It's miraculous!

In the week, approximately, that my husband and I have slept on this topper, we have slept SOOOO....much better. I wake up less at night and wake up with much less achiness. I am so much more flexible also when I get up in the morning. I have sleep apnea and better sleep is always very important to me. My husband is also sleeping much better and said he'd give it a 10;)
THANK YOU for the best product so far and I have many of your great products. Treat yourself to this topper, you need it and don't know it!
