Bottom Line

Breaking it down


Good support. Experts say that latex mattresses tend to be firmer than memory foam, so that makes the Ultimate Dreams Latex Mattress Topper a good choice for those who want firmer support, yet still want a foam topper to conform to their body. It also comes in three firmness levels, however, soft, medium and firm, and most say those designations ring true. In other words, if you like a firm mattress, go with the firm; etc. We read a number of reviews from owners who said they had experienced relief from hip pain after putting this mattress topper on their old mattress. A few say that the mattress pad retains too much heat, but most don't note that as a con.

Ease of use

Washable cover included. This Ultimate Dreams Latex Mattress Topper includes a washable bamboo cover that gets raves from owners who love that they can both protect the mattress topper and keep it clean. These mattress toppers come in a wide range of sizes -- twin, twin XL, full, queen, short queen, king and California king. While most say a deep-pocketed sheet will hold this topper in place, a few wish it had straps to secure it to the mattress and say it does slide around a bit. Latex toppers in general, and the Ultimate Dreams in particular, get fewer complaints of odors when unpackaged.


Solid warranty; good customer service. We read very few reviews regarding the durability of the Ultimate Dreams Latex Mattress Topper, although a very few say it sagged after a few months. However, other reviewers point out that if you put a foam mattress topper on a sagging mattress, the topper will also sag quickly -- they suggest a new mattress or a firmer topper. This 3-inch latex mattress topper has a long, three-year warranty and customer service gets very good reviews, even when problems were reported close to the expiration of the warranty.
