My preferred way of adding memory foam is to layer a softer pad over a firmer one, but the 3-inch ventilated foam offers an alternative solution that I would recommend to anyone who sleeps on their stomach.

Ventilation is a common issue with memory foam as it allows the body to breathe, but because the special gel memory foam in this topper is softer and responsive, this is an instance where it's not a problem.

Even though the gel memory foam is softer than regular memory foam, it still sleeps cool. This is particuarly useful in hot summer months when you can suffer from heat sensitivity.

The unique 3-inch design is designed to improve airflow, creating an environment conducive to a better night's sleep for your family. This full 3-inch memory foam mattress topper can be used on both mattress and foundation.

Because it's gel memory foam, the Lucid Memory Foam Mattress Topper is very lightweight and weighs much less than many other memory foam options.

The topper is closed cell, so it does not breathe the way open cell foam does. If you are looking for a dense, open bubble, this product is not for you.
