Our Saggy Mattress Fix!

Updated on September 05, 2014

Got a Saggy Mattress?

We did. Some nights my husband tossed and turned so much in the bed I couldn't get any rest at all. It was like a contest to see who could fall asleep faster in hopes the lucky snoozer could at least catch a few winks.

My husband and I half-heartedly joked about perhaps we should start sleeping in shifts. The name brand mattress we had purchased a few years prior turned out not to be such a great buy after all. Every night was a repeat of the one before.

We are both in good shape physically so weight was not an issue. And yes, our 60 lb rescue dog does sleep with us too which of course makes our queen size bed rather cozy, but our cottage bedroom will not accommodate a larger bed.

The sagging mattress was making us miserable. However, we weren't anxious to spend more money on another expensive posture mattress so we began to research bed toppers as an affordable alternative.

The Mattress Topper We Chose

is a 2.5" mattress topper from LinenSpa and it's been such a blessing. You can no longer feel the sags in the mattress! My husband, myself AND our dog are finally catching up the sleep we'd missed for so long.

Features We LOVE:

You can read the technical aspects of this memory foam topper on Amazon but here's our experience with this mattress topper....

It does NOT get hot and make you feel sticky like other foam mattress toppers seem to. This ventilated foam topper is "gel infused" which keeps the temperature very comfortable. We live in Hawaii in a small cottage and our air conditioning is a ceiling fan with open windows.

It seems to mold around your body. It's thick enough that neither of us notice when the other leaves the bed. The tossing and turning has ceased. It's wonderful!

This mattress topper was VERY affordable, which is a big bonus though we all know a good nights sleep is priceless.

It fits perfectly on top of our mattress and our bed makes up very nicely with our basic fitted sheet.

Good To Know:

This mattress topper was packed into a decent sized cardboard box and we received it quickly (yes, even here to Hawaii the shipping was FREE on Amazon). The enclosed instructions are to take the mattress out of its packaging and lay it out flat for at least 48 hours so the topper will reach its full shape AND any odors from packaging will be gone.

We laid our new topper on our guest room bed for the time suggested and there was absolutely no smell at all.

We bought these pillows to accompany our new mattress topper. Perfect choice! No more stiff necks or sweaty heads.

This mattress topper is also by LinenSpa but does not feature the gel infused foam. However, the reviews are excellent. This topper would still allow a great nights sleep for anyone on a smaller budget.

So, what do you think? Could you use an extra 40 winks? :)

      I had no idea a product like this existed and we'll be looking into it. Like yours, our mattress has developed some sags before its time (it's not that old). Thanks for bringing this to our attention -- your endorsement means a lot!

      What a great idea for those saggy mattresses. It's miserable to try to sleep when your spine is bent in an uncomfortable position, and then too, you get up with a back ache from the lack of support. Great idea and well written!
