    I have been considering getting one. We have a waveless waterbed with extra back support but I think the innards on my side are not supporting me like they used to. (we've had this for over 10 years.) Husband says the bed is fine, but then he doesn't spend as much time in there like I do though either--he is a couch slug instead.

    So, if you have one does it help?
  2. Yes and I wouldn't be without it. however I don't have a waterbed, we had one yrs ago and HATED it. Get a good one, mine was around $100 at Sams about 6 yrs ago. now everyone makes them

    And I love it....even my husband has said he sleeps better. I spent just over $100.00 buck for mine.

    I have one and find it helpful. I have spots on my shoulders and hips that are very tender, and I don't sleep well--turn over a lot. The foam topper helps. I have a regular padded mattress, and the foam topper is additional. I don't know if it would work on a water bed or not.

    My DH bought me the 2" but I wish I had the 3" one. We both LOVE the mattress topper.

    I have one on my bed in my dorm room at school.


    Everyone is always so amazed when I say my dorm bed is the most comfortable bed I have EVER slept on.

    I have noticed over the years that any sort of bed that is squishy (while I love the feeling of them) leaves me in agony in the morning. Waterbeds especially. I loved the squishyness and I loved the sloshing sound of the water (I'd wiggle about a bit to have it make waves so I'd fall asleep) but ugh, the pain in the morning.

    The dorm bed itself is really firm, but the foam topper adds just the right amount of comfort to not make it too hard for my body. I honestly sleep the best at my dorm, except for nights when the fraternity boys are out...Greek Row is right out my window, which happens to be open 24/7/362 (adding in for the past few days we had of <0F windchills)

    We have had one for two years now. Wouldn't do without it. I'd take it travelling if I could! My husband has severe arthritis in his knees and he even finds it helps so much.

    We only have a 3" one but that 's all we seem to need

    as long as you do not have reaction to the chemicals in the product you should be fine. I had to take mine back as the smell drove me out of the house.
