We read a lot of positive feedback from back pain sufferers who praise the CertiPUR-US-certified LUCID 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper. Many users report sleeping longer and more deeply on this topper and waking up without aches and sores.

Five stomach sleepers like it and five don’t. Overwhelmingly, side sleepers vote for this model while a few vote against it.

Why is this so?

Very comfortable and supportive, it “cradles” the sleeper. Reviewers describe the topper as not “like a feather bed” in that they sink in without feeling like they’re sinking in. Put another way, when they first climb onto the topper, it feels firm but then slowly molds around them.

The LUCID 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper successfully keeps some sleepers cool. With open cell technology, the foam is designed with ventilation holes to release heat, which some users find effective while others think they’re useless. The topper still retains some heat and is reportedly warm or even hot to some.

This is interesting...

In terms of memory, this foam didn’t perform well for some. At least a couple people say when they test the foam by pressing down, it springs back very quickly, in less than a second. Some feel the topper is too firm and stiff for memory foam, while others find it too soft and “squishy,” which can more back pain.

Good while it lasts...

For the most part, the heavy LUCID 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper stays in place. People also like its durability. We found reports that the topper “hasn’t compressed or changed shape” in up to 18 months.

At around the two-year mark, though, some users state it starts to conform to their bodies and provide less support. Unfortunately, we also read a few testimonies of the topper starting to break down within the first three to six months.

After three months, one reviewer felt like he was sleeping in a canoe. Several toppers turned yellow over time.

Note:

Be sure to purchase a fitted sheet with deep pockets to accommodate this thick topper. A few new owners state that when they gave the topper time to expand, it grew to only 3 ¾” and not 4” in thickness.

When new, the LUCID 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper has an odor that lessens after 24 to 48 hours (or more in a few cases). Several people found rips, tears, and cracks in the product upon arrival or shortly thereafter.

The LUCID 4-Inch Memory Foam Mattress Topper is available in twin, twin XL, full, full XL, queen, RV/short queen, king, and California king sizes.
