Memory foam is not what it used to be
I have been buying memory foam toppers for many years, and was extremely satisfied with all of them until about 3 years ago. Prior to that time the toppers would take at least 24 hours to totally unfold and rise to their normal unpacked shape. The information supplied with these toppers described this as a normal characteristic of good memory foam materials. A hand print pressed into these toppers would also take at least 30 seconds to disappear. It is this feature that differentiates memory foam from cheap (non-memory foam) materials. Well I cannot now find a good memory foam topper anywhere. I have ordered from the same companies I used in the past but have returned them due to their lack of memory, which is the very feature I so dearly covet. These toppers fully expand to their full uncompressed shapes INSTANTLY. I have contacted these companies and the excuse I got was that the factory changed the formula. I have returned these cheap imposters for a refund. When I found Foamorder.com I was excited because all of their online documentation described the problems I have been having finding good memory foam. They stated that good memory foam costs more and most manufacturers are selling cheap imitation foam. So I decided to give Foamorder.com a try and ordered a king size 3 inch 4.5 density mattress topper. I was excited when it arrived and saw that the color was the yellow of the old good memory foam and not the gray colors that the other manufacturers are now shipping. My excitement soon disappeared when the topper fully uncompressed almost as soon as I removed it from the wrapping. I compared recovery time of a hand print for this Foamorder.com topper to the 10 year old one I was replacing and was diasappointed to find they are basically identical and recover in 1-2 seconds. I feel I have been tricked again, and would return it if packaging it up was not so difficult.
