    memory foam mattress overlay recommendations?

    Can somebody recommend a specific memory foam or gel mattress overlay? Currently sleeping on a Hill-Rom NP100 mattress which was too firm, so I added a memory foam overlay from Walmart. Worked fine for a few years, but had to be replaced. Bought a 4" Cloud9 on-line, but have been developing some redness. I don't remember the specific make/model of the one I purchased at Walmart, and they don't seem to have any in stock. Would appreciate any recommendations.

    Are the ones that advertise gel & foam mixture any good?

    If you have the funds why not a sleep number...its the best money i ever spent.

    Memory foam get super hot, it really doesn't allow your skin to breath. This was my complaint as an always freezing quad and others I know have voiced the same opinion.

    Something to think about.

    I would get anything but memory foam. My experience was the same as Cheesecake...hot and sweaty even in the dead of winter.

    The Cloud9 I have now and the one from Walmart were/are both memory foam. Never had a problem with heat. I've always used a cover that helps with ventilation.

    This is good info for me about the memory foam, I've been wondering. I sleep hot in a cold room. Don't know if Ill ever have the money for a Sleep Number but I should start checking out some new mattresses. Man the money stuff never ends. Next thing on my list is a new Tilite TR3. Probably costs as much as a new bed.

    I got mine from qvc I was able to break the payments up and pay a certain amount each month for about 6 months. If it wasn't for that I never could have gotten one.
