I’ve been using this 10 days and feel it’s safe to leave a review at this time. It’s not quite five stars, but it’s above 4 so 4.5 is where I would rate it.
Background: I’ve developed sciatica pain in the last 4 months part of it is a mattress we need to replace (after the first of the year) but most of it is scoliosis and the fun times of getting older. My husband has shoulder/back pains mostly from the aging mattress aggravating work related soreness because there isn’t enough support. So we grabbed this pad on the off chance it will get us through for a couple of months.
For him, it helped his soreness in 48 hours. 72 hours he’s in love with it. Me? While it helped a bit right away, but it’s been an adjustment. It didn’t magically make my lower back pain disappear the first night, but it did help. 72 hours in, I had soreness in areas that weren’t normally sore on top of the slightly reduced lower back pain. Mornings 5-7 saw the “new” pains go away but still some lower back pain. Day 8 was no change, days 9-10 (today) I work up with just a teeny bit of minor soreness, no actual pain. I’m a happy camper to say the least.
It helped us.
We both sleep like the dead on it. Neither of us moves that much now during the night using this.
It stinks and the smell won’t be gone in 48 hours even after airing it out. It’ll be a bit less but it’ll still be there. It took a good 8 days for the smell to be completely gone. To give you an idea of what it smells like. It smells just like carpet padding, so if you’ve ever had new carpeting, that’s it. It doesn’t sound like a bad smell…until you’re laying on the mattress with that smell full on in your nostrils.
You might need new “deep pocket” fitted sheets for the three inches this will add to the mattress.
The biggest thing is, it’s not like “sleeping on a cloud” like so many reviews say. It’s like sleeping on…a foam mattress with a bit of give. It’s not “soft”, you’re not going to jump in and immediately sink into it like a feather bed. It starts off firm then slowly molds around you. I’m REALLY not a big fan of the way it feels to move around in it when not sleeping. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but that extra give can be a bit annoying at times.
