I'm hoping someone with more knowledge about DIY beds can help me out. I know I want a similar feel to a specific bed that uses a 4 inch 4lb density memory foam slab over pocket coils. The memory foam then has a comfort layer on top - I'm thinking about a latex convoluted topper.

My question is about the 4 inch memory foam. I'm a hot sleeper and I want something more cooling. A 4 inch slab of gel foam is way out of my price range. Would placing a 1 inch gel topper and 3 inch 4lb memory foam (instead of 4) be a waste of money or would it help?

I don't like the sinking feeling of memory foam and the 4 inch of 4lb with the topper didn't seem to bother me when I tried it in store. Will dividing up the 4 inch layer change the feel too much?

I know this is a complicated issue. For the Gel Foam I was thinking of an Amazon grab similar to a Lucid - are these crap or will it work for my purpose?
