Heya gellibelly,

I got the 10" king size at a level 4 (I think that translated to a 32 ILD). My husband and I are still very pleased and the mattress (and topper) seem to be holding up really well. When I purchased my mattress, the Eurotop option wasn't available (I ordered it late May of 2012). If I were doing it again I would strongly consider the Eurotop option.

Our old mattress was a whale of a thing, that was a full 18" with a pillowtop, they were popular and we were mattress salesman innocents. Going down to a 10" (12" with topper) mattress for us was a big step - our sheets billow a bit, and I do lot's of tucking when making the bed. I did just measure our current setup and it is a full 12" by my measurements. I like it more since I don't have to 'leap' into bed. My husband, who's had multiple back surgeries, loves it but he did mention that he misses the height.

We also have a captains-type bed (drawers underneath) that seems higher than a 'normal' frame. I just measured the total height and it came out to be about 33-34" or so in total height. I'm not sure if that will help you but it might give you a point of reference. I hope this information helps your decision!

Let us know what you decide and I'd love to hear your thoughts once you get your mattress. :)

Hi Coventry,

I actually would prefer to get the Eurotop version, but my husband thinks it's unnecessary to pay $250 more for the extra polyfoam on the bottom when Chuck already indicated to me that it doesn't add anything by way of support or comfort. It is strictly a profile thing. I'm just concerned because even though the Ultimate Dreams bed is supposed to be 10", a lot of reviewers were saying that it's actually about 1/2" to 1" shorter than that. Is yours the full 10"? Our current Ikea bedframe (for our Queen) has an adjustable base, but we haven't purchased a new bedframe for the king we intend to purchase and I don't know what we will need. I guess I just want to avoid having to possibly buy an additional foundation to put over wood slats because our new bed won't be high enough. If we had to do that it would probably run us around $250 anyway for a foundation right? Might as well just buy the taller mattress! (At least that was the argument to my husband but he is still holding firm...!) :S Although looking at your photos the mattress does seem to be an adequate height.

What kind of foundation do you have?

Gelli,

I'm at work right now so can't get you specific measurements but I'll try to get you some more pictures and measurements later today. I've also added some of my own reasons below why the zippered access construction of the eurotop would be completely cool. B) There's also a general description about how my own bed is set up that might answer some of your questions.

Some other reasons you (or your husband) might consider the Eurotop version beyond the profile height would be the ease of changing out the top layer, if or when it wears out. Since you can easily get to the mattress innards, you can easily see the type of wear or flip the inner layer of latex for added longevity. You could also play around with different types of comfort layers by switching out the latex layer with something else. Mainly, I feel the ability to flip that inner layer of latex (since you can't flip the whole mattress) might offer a real value of added longevity to the top comfort layer, those are the layers that wear out first anyways.

a lot of reviewers were saying that it's actually about 1/2" to 1" shorter than that. Is yours the full 10"?


When I measured my mattress last night, I had the topper on along with all my other bedding, to my measurements it was a good 12". I used a fabric tape measure and measured from my wooden bed frame, that my bed rests on, to the top of the the... I guess 'loft' would be the word... I measured beyond the dark sewn seams (you can see them in the pictures), since there was more poof on top. Hope that made sense.

What kind of foundation do you have?


We don't have any box spring, our mattress is directly on some stained plywood that is screwed to the frame of the drawers and headboard. I'll upload some more pictures later that might be better at helping you 'see' how it's fully set up. We don't have any type of 'official' foundation and since our mattress rests directly on plywood, I'm thinking I should purchase on of those horsehair mattress air thingies Phoenix has mentioned before... now I'm gonna have to write that down and look those up. :D

I'll update this thread later today (hopefully I'll remember) with some more pictures and better measurements for you.

Wondering if your review of this topper still is the same after sleeping on it for awhile? Needing a little more softness for the Denver Mattress "Aspen" bed we purchased. Thanks!

Hi dunbroke,

I can tell you that we are just as happy with ours as when we first purchased it.

Yup, my husband and I still really like it. It's holding up well and fluffs up nice with a little shake when I change the bedding. I was on the fence about getting it but the price won me over and I don't regret the decision at all. Very good quality for the price I think. :)

Thank you Coventry for posting this review. I recently bought the Ultimate Dreams mattress in a 7 and it's slightly too firm for me, I feel pressure on my hip (side sleeper). When I bought the mattress I also bought the 3" 19 ILD topper for another bed. I tried that topper on the Ultimate Dreams and ended up with lower back pain. I've had the Seven Comforts in my cart on Amazon for a while now but I haven't had enough confidence to buy, especially after reading the "bean bag" comment. You and Phoenix have given me the confidence to give it a try. Thanks again.

I'd also like to add that I too thought that the 10" of the Ultimate Dreams would be too short but since my box spring is 9" and the frame is another 6 or so inches, the mattress now sits at what is imo the perfect height. Pillow tops and euro tops have changed our perceptions of what the right height is. I sometimes feel like I live in the land of the giants because not only have mattresses made beds taller but bathroom cabinets and toilets are taller now too. As we remodeled our house, I had to fight with hubby to keep the second bathroom at "normal" height in case the next owners have children or aren't giants.

BTW, did you get a free pillow with your Ultimate Dreams bed? I am totally in love with it. It is the best pillow I have ever owned.

Yeah, needless to say... I don't agree with the 'beanbag' comment regarding the seven comforts topper. I mean it's latex bits stuffed densely into squares, so I can see where that comment came from but IMO it's misleading. The squares are really packed full of latex so, to me it doesn't feel like a 'beanbag' at all. I think for fine tuning pressure points, this topper is really nice. I bought a second one I liked it so much and use it on our guest bed. I hope you like it once you get yours too.

Yes, I got 2 of the shredded latex pillows when I ordered my Ultimate Dreams mattress. I really love them! I stuffed them into a body pillow case and use them as the best body pillow (for me) in the world! I'm currently using the customizable latex pillow from seven comforts as my sleeping pillow. Um... yes, I'm a latexaholic. :)

Please let us know how the topper works for you when you get it!
