That’s right. I’m talking to you. And you know who you are: Memory Foam retailers.
I’d been sold a dream. A mattress that conforms to me, for a perfect night’s sleep. And made of space-age material, no less. From NASA!
Anyways, rather than bite the bullet and buy a full mattress, I had heard wonderful things about mattress toppers. Basically, just imagine a memory foam mattress that’s only 4 inches tall. It sits on top of your existing mattress, but provides the “comfort” of a memory foam mattress.
So in November, I got one. Got it on sale at overstock.com. Since then (and I’ve tried attributing this to just about everything else), I’ve had the most amazing back pain imaginable. To the point that I could hardly stand up some days. I attributed it to lack of exercise…carrying my daughter…yardwork…anything but that precious mattress.
I finally took the thing off of my bed over the weekend. My back is already perfectly fine. Don’t buy one. They suck.
