    I am at this moment having a two inch gel infused Mattress Topper put on my bed in an attempt to sleep better tonight. I have an excellent mattress and hope this topper will give me added comfort.

    I don't.

    Years ago I had a 2" foam topper and it was a pain to keep in place so I gave up on it.

    I have seen the gel toppers advertised and I hope that you will keep us posted on it works for you.

    I like the idea of the cooler sleeping that gel is supposed to provide.

    No toppers. Don't even like a pillow top mattress. It wraps up around you from below, and feels hot, to me. Maybe it comes from living in the humidity zone of the U.S. for too long

    All I need is a long body pillow. At home I use a king size pillow to hug and lean on or put between legs, etc.

    Was having trouble sleeping at my daughter's so the second day I was here my daughter bought a long body pillow from Costco for me....Ive slept like a baby since....it's my snuggle bunny and I'm taking it home with me. :)

    While still living back in Illinois, and still a YOUNG man, I might add (I left there at 30), frequent lower back pain finally sent me to my dr. He had a few X-Rays taken, decided there was nothing really wrong; he told me to try sleeping on a hard flat surface and see what happens. I spread a couple blankets on the floor over our carpeting in the living room. Tough going, at first. But, surprise, after a few nights, the back pain subsided! We then bought an orthopedic (read that very firm and stiff) mattress and box spring, King-size at that, and never had back pain again. That hard bed lasted a mighty long time, too. Traveled from Chicago to Vegas, to Colorado, Indiana, Phoenix, a total of 28 years, couldn't wear the damned thing out! Left it when we went to Missouri, mostly because it wouldn't fit the bedroom in our "new" 100-year old farmhouse! Frank

    We have one of those padded mattress toppers, but it is not like one of the thick foam ones that I have seen. Since we have a Sleep Number bed, we mostly sleep pretty comfortably with just that.
    The Sleep Number bed has a padded top that is part of the mattress anyway, so we really wouldn’t even need the mattress topper that we have, but it does help to protect the mattress.
    In the summer, a gel pad might be nice, and especially one of those gel pillows; but now that it is chilly at night, we do not need anything that is cooler.

    Back in August we purchased the Ghost bed, as daughter loved hers and thought we would also. Um, maybe, we are getting use to it, but very hard compared to our other mattress.We did buy a topper to go on top and that has helped - though it is not overly thick, it does make a difference.
