Memory foam mattress - is 3" memory foam on top enough?

Hi all.

We have been umming and aahing (LOL!) about getting a new mattress for ages but never got round to settling on one.

I have found a deal that seems good - King size 12" mattress, 3" memory foam with 2 memory foam pillows for £189 and they have good reviews.

Can anyone please offer me their opinion, please? We were originally looking at getting a full memory foam one but read that these aren't as good as one that just has memory foam on top, especially if your bedd has a slatted base.

Thank yous x

i like my memory foam topper, iv had it over a year now, if you put a normal cotton sheet on i dont find it makes me too warm, but it does make you warmer than a normal mattress does, so id maybe invest in a thinner duvet for in the warmer months, i would make sure you have a hardish mattress thow as they are obviously very soft and a soft topper ontop of a soft matress is too much, if you roll to close to the edge of the bed itl just roll u off :)

I have a 10" thick on top memory foam mattress and I love it, I have never slept so well!
My friend did have a 4" one, but recently ended up buying an 8" thick one as she felt the other was too thin.

It also depends on weight, the heavier you are the thicker the better..... I hope this helps:thumbsup:

Side note...argos have 15% of mattresses at the moment (off sale prices as well). Some of theirs are half price (although every mattress strore seems to have half price sales).

I'm in the midst of buying a mattress as well. Apparently one of the best ways to do it is try the mattress for about 15 mins in your natural sleeping position. Obviously you can't do that at argos but try at one of the furniture stores (joysleep, etc).

i dont like them personally as i fidget lots and can be difficult to get out of your own hole! lol!
we just bought a new bed just last week and tried out plenty of mattresses/beds. in the end we went for a coil sprung mattress with a foamed top, got it in king size which is a dream. Spent just under £800 on the divan set with 2 drawers which was a bargain on its own as the mattress was £949 alone. Also got a mattress topper, and a £200 headboard thrown in.

3" of Memory foam is more than enough, I researched this quite heavily and found those 100% Memory foam mattresses tended to make you very hot and also the mattresses ended up not being comfortable.
What you want is a sprung mattress with the 3" of memory foam on top. The more springs the greater the support so you kinda want a minium of 1200 springs to get a good quality long lasting mattress. The best thing is to go out and test lots of mattresses in the showrooms.

haha
depends on how close to the floor the top of ur bed is, if you've got a high bed the rolling off isnt so much fun :) unless someone is there to soften the fall ;-)
forgot to mention, my topper is only 3 or 4" and I find thats enough for me
