Hi All,

I purchased an Ikea Queen Myrbacka (medium firm) to replace my previous Ikea Full Sultan Engenes. I also purchased the Sultan Altoy base for the Myrbacka. Unfortunately, I find the Myrbacka to be way too firm. I loved the Engenes, but it just became too small for the wife and I to be comfortable on. The only other Ikea mattress that I liked was the Morgongava, which is about $450 more. I think I am a few days outside the Ikea 90 day exchange. I also think we can add a latex topper for less than the difference between the mattresses. So, what shall it be? FYI - I sleep hot and therefore do not like memory foam. The Cozy Pure looks fantastic, but also incredibly expensive. I think my max budget is around $500. My wife and I are mostly side sleepers.

Hi schwaz80,

So, what shall it be?


While there are too many unknowns, variables, and personal preferences involved to make any specific suggestions ... post #2 here and the topper guidelines it links to has more information that can help you use your sleeping experience on a mattress as a reference point and guideline to help you choose the type, thickness, and firmness for a topper that has the best chance of resolving any "symptoms" or discomfort you may be having on your Sultan engenes and includes a link to a list of the better online topper sources I'm aware of as well.

Schwaz80 - I bought a Cozy Pure LaNoodle topper last year (queen size) and used it for about a month - under a mattress cover - and it just wasn't quite soft enough for me. I have a severe case of 'princess and the pea' syndrome, I confess, and ended up with a 14 ILD 3" Talalay topper for my Dunlop mattress, which was already a soft mattress, so you can tell I was looking for something in the super-soft range.

I really liked the Cozy Pure topper, it just wasn't quite enough to do away with some of the pressure point problems I was having - I have fibromyalgia and other problems that made getting the right degree of softness a bit of a problem for me, but the topper is every bit as nice as others have said, very well made, and I wouldn't trade my LaNoodle pillows for anything in the world.

Anyway, point being, I have that queen size topper from Cozy Pure that I only used for a month, no smoking, no pets in the bedroom, and I've been thinking about selling it since I've slept on the Talalay topper long enough now to know it has solved my problem. I'd like to get $275 for it plus whatever shipping would be from Virginia to wherever.

If you - or anyone else reading this - is interested, just send me a PM or reply to this and I'll get back to you. I check in here every couple of days, just because there's usually something interesting to read.

If schwaz80 doesn't want your Lanoodles topper you're certainly welcome to start a new "FOR SALE" topic if you wish so that it will be easier for the members to see.

Thanks, Phoenix - I'll do that tomorrow - don't know if you've noticed, but the web pages from your site that I'm pulling up today look a bit odd, not like usual.

Hi Clawdia,

don't know if you've noticed, but the web pages from your site that I'm pulling up today look a bit odd, not like usual.


I've changed the template and software on the site (see this post ) but there have been some issues over the last few days with the server not being able to "interact" with the new software which has caused some errors and distortions and slow loading times over the last few days since the new site was launched.

It's been the subject of a lot of frustration and phone calls to my hosting company over the last few days and nights (and lots of lost sleep) :( ... but my website developer is working on them and hopefully most of them should be resolved today.
