Being a pragmatist, I realized that nothing would make Bob give up his favorite place in the whole world (our bed), so instead of asking for a king mattress topper to try out, I opted for a twin size model. That way, I figured, I could give it a test run on my side of the bed without disturbing his sleep and then I could pass it down to Roo since her twin mattress is woefully thin and hard. Jasper's is, too, but he doesn't complain about it all the time like his big sister does. Possibly because he still ends up crawling into our bed in the middle of the night.
The 2" Classic Invigo mattress topper came rolled up tightly and vacuum-packed in a moderate sized carton, not in a huge mattress box:
Once unfurled, it expanded with air to its normal size. The removable cover is imbued with Invigo Fresh, a proprietary natural salt-based solution that neutralizes odors. It's ultra plush and zips off easily. On our king-sized bed, the topper fit neatly onto my side under the fitted sheet. I really liked how the dense foam didn't feel like I was sinking into a hole, which is usually how my mattress feels.
Honestly, I didn't want to give up the Invigo topper! I was impressed with how well it regulated my body heat while I slept, so I didn't wake up sweaty. I reluctantly let Roo put it on her bed, much to her delight. When I asked her to say something about it, she said "It's like Heaven rubbing up on my back. And my butt. And my head."
I can't imagine how comfy an actual Invigo mattress would be, since the 2" topper made such a huge difference. It really does breathe new life into your mattress, whether an ultra cheapy (like Roo's) or overly pillowy luxe model (like ours). An Invigo mattress topper would be an amazing gift for kids going off to college for the first time (they are available in regular twin and twin XL to suit most dorm beds), not to mention the perfect accoutrement for those of us who are not accustomed to the harsh realities of camping…
