MATTRESS & TOPPER TESTIMONIALS
Customer Testimonials & Reviews Over Mattresses & Toppers
"I received my 6-inch 14 ILD mattress core and it's just what I wanted. I was looking for a replacement for my old mattress core (6"-16 ILD). I like the 14 ILD better. It is very soft. I use this core as a mattress topper. My old core lasted for about 12 years. I hope that in about twelve years I can still get another 14 ILD latex mattress from you. Thanks!"

"Hello There! I've owned my mattress from you for two years and it feels the same as the day I bought it! Comfortable, stable support. I struggle with a lot of back pain and having a Latex Topper mattress has been a huge help with that.”
"Hi,-- just wanted to report back. I don't know what the "softness" level of N1 is, that you found for me in my seamless queen one-inch topper, but it's perfect! I had to sleep on it, of course, for 2 weeks to make sure. It's wonderful -- like being on a cloud, without the sinking-into-hot-mud feeling (and unwelcome heat & noxious smell) of a memory foam topper. It has the right amount of support/push-back/ bounce-back (love that latex foam), along with the right amount of softness, so you get an "A+", because I know it's a bit of guesswork, and I am so appreciative that you went the extra mile for me, of "translating" my qualitative descriptions of what I wanted! You and Sleep Like a Bear are the best, and I'm impressed that even the size is better than what I've seen with other retailers -- the thing is large enough to actually come all the way to the edges of the mattress. Sleep Like a Bear, and you, have been a top-class experience, and I recommend the site and the product without reservation."

"After I bought a 10 inch Talaley latex mattress I wished a bit less firmness especially for my shoulders. Evelyn from SleepLikeABear went through several discussions with me evaluating the right option for me to soften the mattress surface. I appreciated the variance SleepLikeABear could offer providing different toppers. To decide between one inch or two inch, 15 ild or 21 ild, we found the right Talalay latex topper for me. The time and the professionalism Evelyn spent on my individual situation helped me to sleep now on the right firmness level I was looking for.”
GERMAN TRANSLATION: Nachdem ich eine 10 inch Talalay Latexmatratze gekauft hatte, stellte ich fest, dass die Matratze im Schulterbereich etwas zu fest für mich war. Evelyn von SleepLikeABear nahm sich sehr viel Zeit, um die richtige Lösung zu finden, die Matratzenoberfläche weicher zu gestalten. Gut fand ich, dass SleepLikeABear eine große Auswahl an Talalay Latextoppern anbieten konnte. 1 inch oder 2 inch Stärke, 15 ild oder 21 ild Festigkeit, wir fanden den richtigen Topper für mich. Evelyn’s Zeit und Professionalität hat mir geholfen, dass ich jetzt auf dem Festigkeitsgrad schlafe, den ich für mich optimal finde.

"Great doing business with you! Customer service is excellent. If one can afford it, this is the only way to go. This mattress is fit for kings and queens -movie stars and the like. Memory foam & sleep number beds don't even come close to the quality and comfort....I've tried them all. I will stay in touch and I certainly will pass on your information to those that are interested."

"I recently bought a new car and within a few days I began experiencing back strain due to a slight curve in the seat that did not conform to my back. I tried adjusting the seat but I just couldn't get comfortable. I began searching the web for answers and eventually I found SleepLikeABear. They recommended that I look at the foam they offer in their irregular foam cuts section of their web site for options. I was thinking I would try their softest foam. But they suggested a type of foam with a slight push-back quality. I gave the foam a try and it worked perfectly. I am so impressed by the fit in my seat. My back is relaxed and comfortable. I would highly recommend this foam to anyone who is experiencing back seat comfort problems in their car."

"Okay, I admit it, one of my nicknames is Princess and the Pea because my bed has to be just right, especially now in the hot perimenopausal years. My too hard latex mattress (not purchased from SleepLikeABear) has given me grief for years but I stuck with it because it was so darned expensive. I tried everything I could to make it more comfortable. My topper experiments ended in an unsteady pile of a 3 inch wool mattress pad on top of another 3 inches of egg crate foam. I also had problems with overheating every night. I was about ready to toss the whole works and start over.
After some online research, I found Evelyn at SleepLikeABear. She patiently helped me explore options and I selected a latex topper combination of a 1 inch Celsion 15 ILD topper and a 1 inch Celsion 21 ILD topper above it. I've slept for two weeks with the combination of the toppers on my latex mattress and a silk duvet on top of me and I have been one happy bear! This bed is now my favorite ever. I sleep soundly in blissful comfort with no overheating or waking in the middle of the night tossing off covers. What a delight to sleep through the night! Thanks Evelyn and SleepLikeABear!"
The Real Princess and the Pea (Cortenay, Canada)
"I've been trying to write to you since August, I guess, when E and I began communicating. It's been a difficult time for me but what I want to say is very important.
First, about E. From a business standpoint, you must understand that SHE is responsible for my going ahead and making a purchase from your company. I'm sure most of your front line people are kind and thoughtful and knowledgeable, but she has got to be at the top of the list. She asked a few questions, and immediately understood my strange request and we really got to the nitty gritty. She took time to find a piece of Latex which would accommodate all my needs and more, and her offer to cut part of it and glue together- I can assure you that without that special care I would have been to afraid to order. And her whole personality - liveliness, intelligence,concern for my comfort, sense of humor and respect - was exactly perfect for me. She has even followed up not only about the product but also about how I'm doing otherwise. I'm in a strange time and in a strange land, and she - and my new "bed" - has been a real godsend to me.
I hope you will see to it that a copy of this is put into her personnel file.
I am extremely happy with what I bought - an excellent price, too. I only wish this had happened at least 3 years ago! The piece they made fits the chair terrifically, and the addition of the "mattress cover" was so important - had E not brought it up I would never have thought of it. The extra large piece is still in the original box, in case I decide to try another inch. And the foam is the right type - it doesn't make me hot, which is amazing given we are talking chair, not flat bed!
The other piece I will make (wish had already) into little pillows to use in other chairs, and small neck supports or back pillows.
This thing is so important I feel the foam should be in my will.
Which brings me to a point I'd like to make. As America ages, more and more people will, or should, be buying lift chairs. Mine are top of the line Lazy Boys, one having been my husband's, which I use in the den, and another one I bought after moving here, since manipulating a bed is practically impossible (even and especially hospital beds - and I was right. A recent stay in the hospital showed me that the mattress you made for me, which a friend brought there for me, is the only way I will ever again consent to being hospitalized. Not only because it evens out the texture and softens the hospital bed - but more importantly because it helps keep me from slipping down into horrible positions. How I wish Lynn could have had this as he lay dieing! (ore is it dying?)
Not everyone can afford this costly chair, (I couldn't have without the money he left me), but hopefully better lift chairs than are currently in health supply stores will be made cost effective and medicare approved. (the hospital at first refused to let me use my own mattress, but I won).
Your company might want to begin marketing mattresses for these chairs for people like me who have to sleep in them, or spend a lot of time in them. Perhaps going in with a chair company to provide a "package" deal. Certainly advertising (I found you with difficulty because I'm not good on the net, and because I was looking for "chair mattresses" first, but finding none with natural latex - well, it took me awhile) will be essential. Even TV - although that's not my bag anymore.
Sorry this took so much time to read, but I'm nothing if not thorough, if I'm up to it. Thank you for your company and for E! And for being interested in talking with me."
A Really Sweet Lady (New Wilmington, PA)
"The 2inch ILD 14 Latex that you recommended for me did indeed turn out to be perfect! It's been almost 2 years now and I love it and it has virtually healed my heel bursitis problem (I used to wake up many times a night with back of the heel pain, but this topper fixed that almost immediately). I absolutely love this topper, which I use on a very firm, old futon. The combination is fantastic--firm enough to be good for my back, but that springy, soft Latex top for my heels and for general comfort.
My current recommendation (for anyone who will listen to me!) is to buy the firmest possible bed you think you can sleep on, and, after sleeping on it a few months, if it's too firm, buy a soft 2 inch Latex topper from SleepLikeABear.
Hope all is well, and thank you enormously for your help 2 years ago!"
Ron F. (Texas)
"I live in the UK, but ordered my mattress topper from the States because I couldn’t find a 100% Natural Talalay product in this country. I was a bit nervous about receiving such a costly item from overseas, because I was worried about a) the quality of the product; b) which tension to choose without trying it out; c) whether it would be straightforward to get it shipped here; and d) what the import duty would be. That’s a lot of worries! Especially as these items are not cheap!
I needn’t have worried at all – I made my initial enquiries by phone (remembering that they are 7 hours behind over there!) and was answered quickly each time I rang. The member of the sales team who answered me could not have been more helpful. Evelyn spent a lot of time and attention making sure I was choosing exactly the right combination product for my needs. She was always really friendly and helpful (even though I did phone quite a few times with my various concerns!). She steered me successfully through to my final choice. There was a hiccup when the package got diverted to Ireland by mistake, but Evelyn contacted USPS straight away to instigate an enquiry, and it was soon on its way to me again. I felt that Evelyn genuinely cared as to whether we were happy and satisfied with the product.
Luckily we really love our new mattress topper! My husband and I are now both sleeping like bears…….zzzzzz. Kindest regards."

"I’m very glad to reach you after so long. What happened is that I started having back trouble completely unrelated to the topper. I injured it in the garden actually, too much lifting. It pre-occupied me for a very long time and I had to try sleeping in different ways, with and without the topper. I’m much better now.
I’m back using the topper and wouldn’t be without it! I sleep like a bear! But you know what? it became hard on my hip, because I have a very very firm mattress,
100% cotton and custom made. The store said mostly Asian customers purchase this mattress, because of the firmness. I’ve used this mattress for maybe 20 years, but recently got a new one and it became too firm for my body as I’m getting older. I’m 68 now. I developed bursitis on my right hip many years ago, so that’s what was sensitive to the firmness. It comes and goes. So I had to add a 1” egg crate foam to the top of the topper. It’s been that way for a long time. I really just love it. It’s heaven. I still have slight sensitivity in my right hip sometimes, but I wouldn’t want to make the bed any softer. It gives me peace of mind to have this level of firmness. Thank you so much for your help. I learned I have to turn the topper and rotate it to keep it smooth and without curves in the surface. It’s so wonderful. Thank you again!
I would never be without a topper on my firm mattress which is 100% cotton with no foam inside. It makes it just perfect. If you buy a one-sided mattress with a built in topper, there’s no way to turn it frequently so you sleep on a different portion, except by rotating it and that wouldn’t be enough. If the quality of foam deteriorates, you have to buy a new mattress. So I much prefer this arrangement, and being able to chose the firmness of the topper. The quality of yours is very high and I’m confident it will last and last for many years.
I don’t know if you can extract a testimony from this email and my previous ones, but I hope so. Thank you so much for you patience in waiting for my reply. I’ve been thinking of you all this time and your email has been in my inbox waiting for a response."
Sleeping Well In Tustin (Tustin CA)
"A few days ago, I received a slab of 2" Talalay latex from Sleeplikeabear. I needed this to line a so-called "deep-cushion" executive office recliner that I use 16 hours/day by the computer. This latex slab is a 24-density remnant, cut from a custom order that Sleeplikeabear had recently made. There were no seams.
I needed this latex slab because I am thin, light and built narrow, with no fat anywhere. I weigh 110 and am 5'4". I have Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, did have Lyme Disease which may not be gone, and probably now have Fifth Disease. In my office chair, every seam in the seat and back caused pain. My sit-bones (ischium) and tailbone (coccyx) hurt all the time, and so did several vertebrae where they rested against seams in this chair. I had a pressure sore developing in one tender spot. I was never without pain, and I had pain in several places.
Once I received this latex slab and tested it in my chair, the daily pain from sitting was instantly gone. I do not "bottom out" through this foam, and no longer feel pressure points where I am in contact with the chair. A special thank-you to******, who helped me select the correct type and density of latex to purchase. Sleeplikeabear cut this for me to the length I had requested. It was clean and new, neatly folded and packed in a plastic bag, and the shipping was reasonably fast.
This would be good for people who are wheelchair-bound, or who have any kind of sit-bone pain, or who have pressure sores.
The remaining cut piece of the same 24 ILD 2-inch Talalay latex from Sleeplikeabear was 22" wide and about 32" long. Folded in half, this fits perfectly in a standard pillowcase. I can sleep with this more comfortably than I can using the Talalay pillow I purchased elsewhere, which is way thick fat for a small person like me. This piece (2" x2) supports my head very well without bending my neck to the side. I expect this to relieve the neck pain I sometimes have in the morning. I'll encase this in a liner, and I will tell my chiropractor about the latex slabs that Sleeplikeabear makes available."

"After much research, I decided to order my 3” Rejuvenite Talalay latex mattress topper from Sleeplikeabear. There were other companies that offered the product for a few dollars less, but their customer service reviews were less than stellar. I definitely made the right decision.
I received the wrong order by mistake,and I had opened the box before reading the packing slip. I was positive that I was in for a huge hassle.
I was relieved and delighted when the friendly customer service at Sleeplikeabear addressed my problem immediately, and bent over backwards to ensure that I was caused as little inconvenience as possible. A replacement topper was being sent out as we spoke. I have had some unsavory experiences with internet customer service in the past, and I have to say that experience with Sleeplikeabear was a refreshing change.
Both products were of fine quality. I absolutely love my new Rejuvenite mattress topper. I ordered the“plush” (19 ILD) to soften up a standard latex mattress I had purchased from Original Mattress Factory. The mattress turned out to be firmer than expected, and because I am a side sleeper I was still waking up with aches and pains. I have only used the topper a few times, but so far it has improved my sleep tremendously, and is as close to “sleeping on a cloud” as I've come.
Sleeplikeabear truly values their customers! I would heartily recommend them to anyone, and will surely purchase from this company again in the future."
Adrienne (Durham, NC)
"I tried different kinds of mattress toppers for almost a year before finding Sleep Like A Bear. I needed something to soften up my firm mattress but not be too soft. Memory foam and polyurethane foam all compressed too much, and a cheap latex pad of unknown density from another vendor was too firm. I've learned that latex is by far the best topper material for me because it holds its shape and support and doesn't compress. Sleep Like A Bear is the only company I've found that offers anywhere near this selection of densities and thicknesses and different types of latex. Best of all, they have wonderful customer service. Your Customer Service rep was incredibly helpful and friendly when I ordered some samples to start with and then placed two different topper orders. It is rare to find such personalized and responsive service these days. In addition, the toppers were of good quality and were labeled with the manufacturer's name and the density. If you are looking for a place to get a latex topper of the specific density and thickness that you want, this is a great company to order from!"
M. (Charlotte, NC)
"I want to sincerely thank you for the great product and excellent service. I have just received the seamless, 44 ILD, 3" Talatech topper today. The entire experience of this purchase with your company exceeded my expectations. You have kept me informed of order process and answered all my questions from day one when I ordered the foam samples. If anyone has any reservations about doing business with your company, or is uncertain if the products you carry are of superior quality than your competitors, let me assure everyone that they cannot go wrong shopping at SleepLikeABear… Many Thanks!"

"A year ago, I purchased a latex foam mattress from Ikea. When we tested it In the store, it seemed to be moderately firm. It wasn't until my husband and I slept on it for a couple of months that we realized how very hard it was. My arthritic pains had intensified, particularly in my shoulders.
Seeking to solve our problem, I went to a local mattress shop and purchased a 2-inch, 21-22 ILD talalay. I wanted something softer, but the salesman said it was a plush topper and anything softer would fall apart.The improvement was minimal. I then remembered a mattress I had and no longer used, because my husband found it uncomfortable. I removed from it a layer of latex about 3 inches thick. Since it was softer than the one I purchased, I figured it to be about 19 ILD. The additional layer made a very big difference.
Still wanting to add something more, I went online and discovered SleepLikeABear . I found exactly what I was looking for- a 14 ILD Talalay. There I received guidance from ******, a very knowledgeable representative. Based upon our height and weight, she was confident a one-inch 14 ILD would provide the additional softness I needed. She also reassured me that a one-inch 14 ILD would not fall apart. I was impressed that she did not try to sell me more than what she thought necessary.
The topper arrived and I was delighted. It was in perfect condition - soft as a cloud and did not appear fragile at all. We have been sleeping on it for several nights now. The improvement is amazing. Our comfort level has risen considerably and my shoulders are no longer sore each morning . All of this and only with the addition of a single inch ! Thank you ****** and SleepLikeABear . It has been a pleasure doing business with a company that really cares."
Terry T. (NYC)
"I must be the pickiest customer ever. I came to your store after getting violently ill on memory foam. (I was so sick I ended up with massive nausea and migraines, unable to move, eat or drink, after several days of sleeping on it.) So I was pretty cautious about the Talaly. Well, it took a few days to recuperate from the memory foam, but being on Talalay has been like coming home to a cloud for a bed… only better. I have lots of health “issues” and of course, the Talaly hasn’t solved all of them, but as I have progressively healed myself the Talalay has just gotten better and better!
Everyone remarks on how amazing it is. I have never had a reactive moment on it. Far from it. My bed is my perfect refuge. I am so thrilled to have this foam. Given my fibromyalgia-like symptoms, I use the 1 inch 14 topper on top of another topper of latex (as you know) and have put 1 inch 14 and 1 inch 19 travel size toppers elsewhere. I can’t get enough of them. I have turned my whole house into a paradise and even travel to paradise. Thanks for making talalay available. Oh yes… and for all your help in sorting all this out by informing me what is the best kind of foam for my specific needs. Believe it or not, they have varied, depending on the surface I am trying to cover.
Your store is the real deal when it comes to helping people meet real needs with real service. You stand by your products and think things through. I am so happy to do business with you time and time again. Thanks!
Blissfully sleeping, lounging, and entertaining."
P. T. (CA)
"We received our products last night and let them "air out" for two hours before we fitted them into our mattress cover. We had a very restful night's sleep using these mattress toppers and the only issue is the pillow you had sent for me (Joe - the RejuveNite Natural High-Profile), unfortunately it was way too high of a profile and way too hard for me to use as a head pillow.
We really appreciated your wonderful customer service. You were very prompt and extremely helpful in selecting the right products. You are a great credit to your organization, and we are very happy with our purchase. Very respectfully,"
Jo S. (Germany)
“I had forgotten to tell you about one thing. The Celsion is quite a bit cooler to me than the regular Talalay. I take 25 MG of Methotrexate weekly which is more than the recommended dose. This medication is standard for all people who have Rheumatoid arthritis. We take this no matter what other drugs that we may take. This is chemotherapy. It causes sweats, especially, in the large doses that I take. Fibromyalgia also causes night sweats. I don't have the hormonal hot flashes as I take a good dose of Estrogen. I can't handle that many sweats. The Talalay was not hot to me, but I noticed when I got the Celsion one that it is really cool. As far as the coolness, I would have been happy with the Talalay if it had worked for me. I did want to tell you that if a person has rhuematoid or is hot natured or has the night sweats for some reason, I believe that the Celsion is enough cooler for them to pay the extra for. If they just can't swing the extra, the Talalay will be fine. I was very surprised that I noticed that the Celsion was so much cooler for me. I was just looking for comfort and was not concerned at all about the coolness. The other toppers were fine and were not hot like the memory foam or other foams. I didn't say in my testimonial which topper that I got because I thought that was the least important. I am so sure that everyone is so different and is putting the toppers on all kinds of mattresses. I just wanted you to know what I thought about the Celsion. I am just so very happy with my topper. As time goes by I appreciate it more and more.”

"Where should I begin, without writing a novel, so I will describe my medical problems to enable anyone out there to compare what I have gone through to their ailments? I have a herniated disc, L5S1, bulging discs between the shoulder blades, spinal stenosis, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, and who knows what else. One day, I was unable to get out of bed as my left leg could not bear any weight. With medication, NSADs, cortisone injections, water therapy, and years later, I am able to walk but with great difficulty and pain. Each morning, I found myself in more pain so I began my quest to improve my sleeping conditions.
I purchased Memory Foam toppers 2 inch, with 5-pound density that is about the firmest available, to no avail. I sunk right into the toppers, having acquired 3 of them, making it difficult to turn in bed and still having pain while in bed but now I have a new problem, I get electric sensations down my left leg. Every retail mattress store promotes foam or coiled mattresses and would NOT refund my money if the mattress made my problems worse. Only Costco would refund my money so I decided to try their foam mattress. It was great for my lower back but being too firm for my bulging discs, even with the toppers; my issues became worse and returned the mattress. Finally, they offered a latex mattress from Latex International, which I purchased. I have slept on it for over a month now but I still needed it a bit firmer so I found Sleep Like a Bear and ordered a ILD 44, 2-inch topper. I find that the Latex topper supports my lower spine, but is a little too firm for my upper spine. My first night on the topper, I did not have the severe pain that I have experience with other mattresses and toppers, the electric sensation seems to be less severe but my upper spine is acting up. Too bad mattress companies do not zone the firmness of their product to support the body’s weight/spine soothing the medical issues that the human body endures. While the ILD 44 is very firm, so far I am able to tolerate it on my upper back. The electric sensation is diminishing and I am even able to walk a bit more.
All I can say is, do not be afraid to spend the money on a latex topper, especially when the company is willing to refund your money. After ordering the ILD 44 firmness, I was afraid to open the box because another retailer told me it was hard as a rock. Maybe their product could be described in that manner but Sleep Like a Bear’s ILD 44; Latex International could not be described that way. Unlike Memory Foam toppers, I sleep on top of my bed and not in it and awaken without the usual lower back pain.
Thank you Costco and Sleep Like a Bear and ****** who was very supportive and helpful!! I am optimistically hopeful that my problems will not be exaggerated by my new sleeping accommodations."

“It doesn't seem like it’s been 5 years since we ordered our set of Talalay mattresses. Before finding your products, we had gone through various mattresses and mattress toppers. We had even tried a $3000 upper scale memory foam mattress, which started to dish and pocket after three years. My wife had pain in her hips when sleeping on all of the other combinations we had tried over the years.
Ever since we started sleeping on your mattress solutions, everything has been wonderful. These Talalay mattresses look as good as the day we unwrapped them.I recently ordered a mattress topper for one of our college students who was having trouble sleeping. Another problem solved. The zippered cover and the water proof cover turned out to be a good investment for a topper in a dorm room.One recommendation to new customers: The sleep consultants can really help put together the best solution. Go with their recommendation. Best Regards.”
“The customer service is outstanding at sleep like a bear. ***** really took the time to understand my situation, and to make sure that I was getting the very best product possible. I was nervous about buying a topper on-line (without even feeling it), but I am glad I did. I don't think I could be any more pleased with the 2" 27 ILD Celsion. I no longer have back pain when I wake up in the morning, and I can really feel the difference; it is a lot cooler than the regular latex toppers..Thank you so much for all of your help. I will definitely shop here again.”
Janice (Minneapolis, MN)
“We have purchased 4 of your Classic Restora pillows and they are the best pillow we have ever had. My sister ended up purchasing 2 and my granddaughter has asked that we get her one for the past year. We placed an order today to give our granddaughter her wish. I have had neck problems for years and haven't had one since sleeping on this type of pillow.
Even though they have a 5-year warranty I have an extra pillow just in case you stop making this product. Please don't. We have had a lot of guests at our home and they have all told us what a good nights sleep they had during their visit. Thank you for making such a great product.”
JoAnne & Jim W. (Surprise, AZ)
“I contacted Sleep Like A Bear because my Dux bed was no longer comfortable and I was waking up with backaches. When I talked to Duxiana they recommended replacing my original Dux topper with a new Dux latex one at a cost of $1,500. I looked at the many less expensive choices offered by Sleep Like A Bear, but did not know what to select. I called and received excellent help from ***** who helped me select the 2-inch Celsion Talalay Latex Foam Topper which cost much less than the Dux. I love it. No more backaches, and the bed feels just like new. *****, thank you so much for all your help and for upgrading the topper cover to top and bottom terry cloth. I will definitely shop with you again.”

“I am so glad that we got our latex mattress topper! Our regular mattress is pretty new and in good condition, but it is too hard for me—my hips and shoulders hurt every night. After looking into our options, I thought a latex pad would help. And it has! Since we’ve had the pad, we both sleep much better. Every time I get into bed I notice that it feels comfortable and cozy now, instead of hard and painful.
I am also very happy with the service from sleaplikeabear.com. One reason I got our mattress pad from this company is that the representative who worked with me, Evelyn, was very knowledgeable and didn’t pressure me at all. Plus, she helped me figure out which thickness, density and type of latex would be good for both me and my husband, who was happy with our bed as it was. She also helped me figure out which cover would be best. We got the latex pad in just a couple of days, and could immediately tell that it was going to work for us (and in case we weren't happy with my choice, she made sure I knew about their return policy).
Two more notes: the pad has a seam going down it, as do most American-made latex mattresses larger than twin size. I was a little worried about that, but we don’t feel it at all when we're lying on it. Also, it did have a new-latex smell when we got it, but after a few days that faded and went away.”
Suzanna (Pittsburgh, PA)
“I wanted all to know the great service and awesome products I received from sleeplikeabear.com. My experience with this great co. was very pleasant. I love the way sleep like a bear help me build up my old 15 years mattress to a luxury 5 stars bed. I had major neck, back and arms & legs pain and nothing was helping. I went to the chiropractor and he told me that even though he adjusted my body, I would need a top of the line mattress to feel better, sleep better and enjoy my bed. I checked around and many products out there that promise to be the best didn’t do the trick. I was feeling awful and couldn’t sleep until I contacted sleep like a bear and I indeed slept like a bear or a baby should I say. I love the feeling when I lay on my beautiful bed, my pillows help support my neck and I no longer have pains anywhere. I also love the waterproof cover that protects my mattress. If you spill any liquid, the cover has a special liquids resistance that will protect my mattress. So I advise to all of you out there don’t spend thousands of dollars with companies that promise but won’t deliver the goods. Only sleep like a bear products will enter my home so I hope when you see my testimony you will try and enjoy sleeping like a bear products.

“Just wanted to say what a great experience I had with Sleep Like A Bear. The mattress topper is just what we needed to make our bed softer. The customer service is FANTASTIC. They shipped our purchase quickly and we received it within days.”

“I would like to thank Sleep Like a Bear for making a significant improvement in my sleep quality. I had been searching for beds for quite some time, and finally found this great company. The Sleep consultant was very patient in understanding my unique needs, and was able to make a recommendation on ILD firmness based on our lengthy sleep counseling session. My Latex topper arrived within a week, and I have been sleeping like a bear ever since. My shoulder pain (from sleeping on my side on a firm mattress), has been completely eliminated. The bed I thought would have to be thrown out (after only a few years of use), has been rejuvenated, and now feels like the hotel beds I sleep in when traveling on business. I would like to recommend Sleep Like a Bear to anyone frustrated with the current consumer trend of buying mattresses only to have impressions form in them in a short time. These toppers will renew your satisfaction with your current bedding, and makes a huge difference in your comfort. This is the way to go. Don't succumb to the marketing hype of bedding manufacturers. "Just top it off."”

"I wanted to let you know our 3" plush topper arrived yesterday. I put it on the bed immediately, despite getting home at 11 and remade the bed. We slept on it, and unless something really unpredictable pops up about it, it appears we love the thing after only one night! My boyfriend was dubious about the purchase, and is now convinced that latex is luxurious! This is a substantial upgrade in our quality of life. We have been sleeping uncomfortably for months on a quality but rock-hard innerspring mattress that was given to us. For a fraction of the cost of a new mattress we have turned our rigid innerspring mattress into a luxury bed! We are affectionately calling it "the foamie".
It is sooo soft and squishy, I keep just giving the bed little pokes every time I walk by. The bed feels like a soft but supportive womb. It appears thicker than 3". Also, I did not sleep too hot last night. I don't know if that is because it is so breathable or what, but it is a welcome change to not wake up because I am hot!
I really appreciate all your great service and following up on my questions and the delivery to make sure it arrived before we left on vacation."

"Thank you so much for the great help, advice, service, and especially patience to help me get the right topper for my mattress. I bought a good mattress a year ago -- it turned out to be too firm and was causing me a lot of shoulder and back soreness. I was not sleeping well and my back condition was being aggregated. I had already tried two other toppers -- one of memory foam (too hot) and one of 100% natural latex -- that was too firm and had a strange feeling sleeping on it. So, after a year of struggling I was at my wit's end!
I found an online Forum that recommended Sleep-like-a-bear. Sleep-like-a-bear has the widest selection of topper choices – thickness/ILD. Also, the various people online were fairly sure that a 1” blended Latex (Talalay) would work. There was a wide range of opinions on firmness from 19 ILD to 28 ILD. I spoke several times with the specialist from Sleep-Like-a-Bear and we came to a decision for me to try a 1” 19 ILD. I liked the material but found that the topper was too soft. The specialist recommended that for my height, weight, and situation – a 28 ILD would probably be best. Also, she made arrangements for me to return my 19 ILD and they promptly provided a refund.
Well, the 1” 28 ILD has been great! -- It has provided just the right amount of softness to relieve the soreness in my back and shoulder. I really like the Talalay material – it feels very natural. I really cannot say enough good things about the service and topper products from Sleep-Like-a-Bear – I recommend them fully and enthusiastically! Thanks so much!"

“The cheap bed I bought did not help me with my condition "Sciatica" that I had been dealing with from a stairs fall last Dec.2006. I can only do so many visits to my Chiropractor and Physical therapist that help some but it kept coming back. Early this year, I found online and took a chance to invest in a 6" topper and bed legs for my bed. Not only that it helped me so much with my Sciatica problems (it's gone now) and it made my bed into a luxury bed. I now sleep very well and sleeps like a bear ( this is actually the site where I found my topper and bed legs:http://www.sleeplikeabear.com) That Talalay topper is something else! I can't trade my bed with anything.”

“Before the foam I used to fall asleep on my back and wake up in a pretzel all twisted and sore. Now, with my firm 3in foam, I wake up as I fell asleep. Which shows what they promised! A relaxed and fulfilling sleep!
I ache a lot less and have plenty of more energy in the morning to get the day started. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who has back problems or aches about their body.
Antes de usar este producto, yo me acostaba en mi espalda y me levantaba todo torsio y doloroso.
Ahora, con mi cama mas firme, yo me levanto con mas energia. Eso muestra lo que ellos me prometieron! Un relajante y energetico descanso.
Mi cuerpo me duele menos y tengo mucho mas energia en la manana para empezar mi dia. Estoy muy contento con esta compra y yo lo recomiendo a qualquiera que tenga problemas de espalda y dolor en su cuerpo.”

KOREAN TRANSLATION: 우연히 인터넷에서 라텍스 메트리스 파는대를 검색해보다 sleeplikeabear를 발견하였는데 일단 가격이 한국 백화점에서 사는것보다 저렴해서 6인치 라텍스메트리스 topper와 카버를 구입하였습니다. 정말 편안하고 허리가 펴지는 느낌! 누어보면정말 편안함을 느낄수 있었습니다! 매트리스 산 계기는 대학을앞둔 공부하는 동생에게 잠자리를 좀더 편안함을 주기위해서 구입했는데 정말 그후로 동생의 피곤이 줄었고 잠도 더 깊숙이 자는것을 느꼈습니다. 그리고 그후, 한국에 계시는 엄마에게도 2인치를 주문을 해드렸는데 정말 맘에 들어하셨고 편안하다며 좋아하셨습니다~ 결재할때 많은 부담감이있었는데 안전하게 잘 배달되었구요 판매인도 친절하게 도와주어서 아무걱정없었습니다!"
“I am convinced that Sleep-Like-A-Bear's latex toppers are the most comfortable sleeping surfaces on the planet.
I have become disenchanted with memory foam. After awhile, it "remembers" where you have had your weight on it, and doesn't spring back with as much resilience as before. Instead, latex toppers never lose their resilience... they provide a constant level of comfort over time.
My original latex mattress purchased elsewhere twenty years ago still has kept in perfect shape. Only one problem, it's too firm.
So I bought a one-inch soft topper on top of a two-inch medium topper. This combination gives just the right amount of support and plushness. It has helped me sleep comfortably even though I've had recent shoulder surgery and neck problems.
My daughter has a two-inch soft topper. She loves it so much I find her going to sleep without having to be told!! Now, if we could just get her out of bed in the morning in time for school!!
We've also recently tried the plush latex queen size pillows. They make it so much easier to find a comfortable sleeping position in spite of chronic shoulder and neck problems. And you don't have to keep fluffing them up like down, and they don't squash flat like memory foam. We're very happy with Sleep-Like-A-Bear's great customer service and support. They know their product, and they sell the best toppers on the market.
I'm so glad I found them... the long search for the perfect sleeping surface finally brought me to the right place!”

“We love the plush mattress topper that we bought from you. What a difference it does make in sleeping!! My husband had shoulder surgery for a tendon that had come loose by itself in the shoulder months ago. He had trouble sleeping afterwards until we bought the plush topper. He could again sleep on that side without difficulty. We also like the terry cloth mattress cover. It doesn't look anything like terry cloth; it's just comfortable, besides keeping the plush topper cleaner. Your prices are very reasonable on the other sized toppers, & you were the only company that sold the 14 plush topper.”

K. Mesirow (Seattle, WA) “Dear folks at Sleeplikeabear.com, we are so happy we bought your latex topper. We were at our wits end before we discovered your website via some mattress blogs. It saved the day as we have struggled to find the best new mattress we could and still ended up with one too hard. But now we are sleeping fine.
I also wanted to mention your fantastic customer service when I called and explained our issues. Your sales agent had suggested two different toppers to try and we did. One was enough and your return policy is very good. We experienced only professional customer service all by email which made is so easy.
Thank you so much, I have already told many folks about your website and services."

“I want to thank Evelyn for her guidance in buying just what i wanted, To sleep like on a cloud. But this would not be possible if it wasn’t for the quality of your mattress toppers they are the best, worth what you pay. I bought a 3 inch topper combined and ever since I got it I have been dreaming, and this did not happen for a long time. That means I am getting a good nights sleep Thank you sooooooo much.”
A. Caro (Aguadilla, Puerto Rico)
“Hello Eileen, we wanted to tell you that we were very happy with the mattress and the whole order.
Your assistance was very good! Thank you, thank you!"

“For over a year I had been suffering with my hips aching every morning, often awaking me at 4:30 a..m.. I would have to get up and sit in a recliner in order to get relief.. At christmas time I heard about Sleeplikeabear, and the different products they sell, as a senior on a fixed income, I thought these products were luxury items, how wrong I was. My husband and I bought a 3 inch mattress, it is the best item we ever purchased. I no longer awake hurting, instead I am refreshed from a full nights sleep and have more energy. My husband sleeps longer and does not awake complaining about his back. Thank you Sleeplikeabear.
A. Blodgett (Hemet, CA)
“I have tried many different ways to help relieve my physical stress for years, between massages, chiropractor, more days off from work, you name it……. I finally found that the mattress topper and pillow made from Talalay Rubber has helped me tremendously. It relieved my aches and pains when I get up in the morning and I wake up feeling with a lot of energy. My body doesn’t need the extra time to get my gears going to start my hectic day. The rubber is soft, breathable, resilient and conforms to my body that resulted to my good sleep and without the aches and pains in the morning. What a RELIEF!!!!”
