The CertiPUR-US-certified LUCID 3-Inch Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Topper seems to be a real game-changer for many people whose lives were hampered by back pain.

This topper helps users fall asleep, extends their sleep time by hours, “overhauls” tight backs and tender joints, and allows them to resume activities, like yoga and rowing. The only downside is that the topper makes people oversleep and be late for work because it’s so comfortable.

Moreover...

Sleeping in odd positions seems painless for many. Perfect for back sleepers, this topper also is suitable for side sleepers because of a lack of “pressure point” issues. Sixteen side sleepers like it while four don’t. The LUCID 3-Inch Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Topper may be too soft for stomach sleepers; four voted against it and only one voted for it.

Here’s where things get complicated:

This model is squishy but supportive for some. One reviewer writes that it surrounds the sleeper like “a deep, warm hug.” On the other hand, many others feel like they’re sucked into a “sinkhole” or “ditch” in which they have much difficulty moving or rolling around without sitting up. We saw an extreme comment where the user compares himself to a turtle on its back when he tries to climb out of bed. People who feel this topper is too soft and lacks sufficient support complain of returning back or neck pain.

So what’s it all mean?

Basically, if you seek a firm topper, the LUCID 3-Inch Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Topper may not be a good choice. On the other hand, if you want a very cozy feel and don’t move too much while you sleep, this may be the ticket. In any case, reviewers recommend this soft topper as a remedy for a too-hard mattress.

We didn’t find many comments on this model’s durability, except that flattened for a few people within six months to a year. Several users report the foam either arrived with tears or rips easily within a few months.

A green option?

The LUCID 3-Inch Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Topper is infused with bamboo charcoal and not gel. According to the manufacturer, the bamboo charcoal regulates moisture, odor, and temperature naturally. Three people report that the topper does help wick away or control. Others chose this model for the organically “clean,” odor-resistant, and anti-germ qualities of bamboo charcoal.

But...

In terms of temperature control, however, reviews were mixed. Admittedly, the topper isn’t advertised as a cooling topper but it does have holes for ventilation. Some users believe the holes “do their job to ventilate” and prevent overheating. Others don’t agree. While some owners feel the bamboo charcoal helps keep the topper stays cool, many others say it still retains heat, grows hot, and makes them sweat.

This is nice:

The majority of new owners smelled little to no odor. Those that smelled a slight odor say the smell disappeared after airing out the topper for 24- to 48 hours. A few people were bothered by a strong odor.

The LUCID 3-Inch Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Topper has fine customer service and is available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king sizes.
