Materials and Construction
The Sleep Innovations Gel Memory Foam 4-inch Dual Layer Mattress Topper combines the effects of two different layers to create an ideal sleep surface for the sleeper. The bottom 2-inch layer is a gel memory foam layer. This is the one that touches the owner’s mattress, regardless of whether it is a new mattress or an old one. This layer of the mattress topper is 2 inches thick and provides the sleeper with the benefits of both a conventional memory foam as well as the insertion of cooling gel into the memory foam. The memory foam adjusts to the shape of the body, and when the body moves on top of the mattress topper or gets up from it, The part of the gel-memory foam layer which was compressed under it is released, and it gradually regains its shape. This way, the body impressions are not created on the surface of the mattress topper permanently. The regaining of the original shape by the gel-memory foam layer is gradual, and it might not be as quick as one can notice on latex, it is still complete, and the gel-memory foam layer regains its shape fully. This ability of the gel memory foam layer to adjust to the body shape allows it to conform to the body whenever the sleeper lays down on the mattress topper.
The gel-memory foam layer of the mattress topper provides perfect pressure point relief. Normally, on traditional spring beds, the upward push applied by the mattress against the gravitational pull which tries to pull the body down creates tremendous pressure on the sensitive areas of the body. Thus, the body develops pressure points at places like the head, shoulders, hips, and heels, etc. These are the places that develop lot of stress which needs to be relieved. Gel-memory foam layer in this mattress topper is instrumental in relieving the stress of these pressure points and providing a lot of comfort to the body. In line with this, the distribution of the weight of the body on the surface of the mattress topper is even. This is very much unlike the traditional spring beds which tend to concentrate the entire weight of the body on parts such as the head, shoulders, hips and the heels. This could lead to the sleeper getting up in the morning with numb arms and legs and getting sore muscles. This mattress topper due to its gel-memory foam layer would evenly distribute the body weight over the entire surface of the mattress thereby ensuring that the blood circulation and the heart rate remain lower and the body feels more rested.
The gel-memory foam layer also enables reduced motion transfer. When a couple sleeps on the mattress topper, the movement by one will not disturb the other partner. If the two partners have different sleep schedules, and if one gets up to go, the other one would not be disturbed. AS far as the gel-infusion in the memory foam is concerned, it opens uu the cell structure of the memory foam and allows for air circulation through it. This air circulation wicks away the sweat and moisture from the body and keep the sleeper dry and cool in summer nights and warm and dry in winter nights. The body heat is also dispersed away from the body as well as the mattress topper. This way, the sleeper gets to sleep on a temperature regulated sleep environment which allows the body to stay at the desired sleep temperature. A mentioned earlier, this is great for those mattresses which do not have a cooling gel insertion in their upper layers and this mattress topper can be laid down on top of these mattresses to avail the benefits of cooling gel memory foam as well as the fluffy cloud-like feel and softness of the top layer of the mattress topper.
The gel-memory foam layer of the mattress topper, which is laid right over the mattress is also hypoallergenic. The gel-infusion enables the sweat and moisture to be wicked away, and there is no moisture left inside to allow for the growth of organisms. The dense structure of the gel-infused memory layer also does not allow the allergens and the dust mites to live and thrive inside it. On traditional spring beds, thee could be up to a million dust mites inside and they despite being harmless do cause allergies. This gel-memory foam layer would ensure that the mattress topper is free of allergens, dust mites, mildew, mold, etc. and the sleepers get to have a perfect worry-free sleep.
The gel-memory foam layer of the mattress topper enables a cool, comfortable, pressure-relieving, body-conforming and thermoregulated sleep environment. However, that is not all that this mattress topper does. It has got another top layer of a quilted cover containing a very fluffy fill which makes life very easy for the sleeper as it provides cloud-like softness and feels for a perfect night’s rest. The fiberfill layer is a comfort layer which gives the feeling to the body as if it is lying on a giant pillow. It is attached to the bottom 2-inch layer of the gel-memory foam layer of the mattress topper. This allows it to hold on to the bottom layer perfectly and it does not get to move around which would otherwise have been disturbing for the sleeper.
The presence of this fiber-filled layer ensures that the body does not sink into the gel-memory foam below it, but it gives the perfect feel of a large pillow lying in between the body and the foam block. Most mattress toppers have got one layer, and this one has two. Many dual-layered mattress toppers, however, have the first layer simply sitting on top of the lower foam layer, and it gives a constant movement which tends to disturb the sleeper. In this mattress topper, the extra layer fits on the foam perfectly as well as securely It utilizes elastic edges and thus, one can feel that the construction and the build quality of this mattress topper is high quality.
The construction and build quality are very good. The elastic edges wrap around the gel-memory foam layer to hold it securely. The top layer of the mattress topper, therefore, stays in place perfectly well. The fiberfill layer with the quilted cover is quite squishy and soft, and it is not firm at all. Those people who want to make their mattress firm might not want it but for those who like a very soft, plush and cloud-like feel would love the touch and feel of this mattress topper. The stitching involved in the fiberfill quilted cover layer is simple and can be classified as single stitching. However, it is strong enough to hold everything in place and to ensure that the fill stays inside. When this layer acts in conjunction with the gel memory foam layer just below in the mattress topper, a certain degree of support is also provided by the gel-memory foam layer. This way, the spine of the sleeper is kept in the right position as well. The mattress topper is therefore well suited for all types of sleepers regardless of whether they sleep on their side, back or on the stomach.
This mattress topper, given the materials used in it, can be used on top of any mattress regardless of whether it is soft, medium or firm. The mattress topper would ensure a soft and fluffy feel on the top and create a cool, pressure-relieving, thermoregulated and body-conforming sleep environment on top of the new or old mattress.

The gel-infused memory foam layer is highly durable as the gel-memory foam is a dense foam material. The density of the foam portrays its quality and the denser the foam material, the better is the quality of the foam. The gel- memory foam layer does not allow allergens and dust mites to live and thrive in it, and this leads to the memory foam layer not degrading over time due to odor, allergens, etc. The infusion of gel in the memory foam layers opens up the cell structure of memory foam and allows it to become cool as it lets air pass through its open cells. The sweat and moisture are wicked away, and the gel-memory foam layer gets rid of any possible growth of bacteria and does not let dust mites and allergens thrive in it. The absence of moisture is the key to keeping it dry and free of such irritants. This makes the gel memory foam layer highly durable.
The fluffy fill with the quilted cover is very soft and fluffy, but it does not mean that it is not durable and strong. The polyester fill lasts for a very long time as polyester is known for its long life and it does not degrade with time. It is a very strong, tough and durable material. Even though the stitching is single stitching in the case of the quilted cover, yet the quality of stitching is pretty good, and it does not let the quilted cover tear away easily. If the cover tears at its seams, it could lead the fluffy fill to leak out and cause a lot of issues and make the product not durable. However, the seam is strong enough to hold it in, and the product has a long life span.
