The Visco Elastic Memory Foam Mattress Pad Bed Topper is made in the USA and is 3 inches thick with 4 pounds of foam. Once placed atop the mattress it immediately provides much more restful slumber and revitalizes the mattress. Visco’s toppers also outperform PURGreen certifications so it can be rest assured their products are environmentally friendly, free from allergens and hold up to all EPA as well as CSPC standards. PURGreen contracts a laboratory test to their entire inventory and is proud their products do not include chlorofluorocarbons, polybrominated biphenyl ether substances, metals, formaldehyde, phthalates that are banned and any other such materials. PURGreen also includes rules for the conservation of natural resources while products are being constructed.
This pad suspends the body rather than allowing it to sink down into the mattress. The density of it is excellent for people looking for a mattress pad that has a bit more firmness to it than other memory foam pads. Many people complain these types of pads often do not fit the mattress as closely as they would like, but this specific pad fits like a glove. Its suppleness enables the pad to be folded and kept in a storage space while not in use. It still retains its shape quite well.
It is rather heavy and could take several people to put into place after arrival. This also makes it difficult to move in case it would be used on another mattress. Like most memory foam, there is an odor for the first several days that can last for several months. It does emit a noticeable amount of heat for people that like to be cool while they sleep. This can be difficult to clean. The only way to accomplish this would probably be through spot cleaning.
This mattress pad definitely possesses positives and negatives, but as will all purchases it depends on personal preferences and the needs of the household to determine what suits the buyer best. If moving this for set up or to another mattress would be troublesome, another pad should be considered.
