We have had our king size SlumperTop mattress for 2 months
and fine the combination of firmness and comfortable top layer
makes for a very good night's sleep.
On staring out to purchase a new mattress we found a bewildering
array of different mattress brands, manty specifying therapeutic
aqualities. By contrast, SlumerTops descriptions etc were
refreshingly free of hype. We wanted a firm mattress that
was not too hard and wondered if we were ever going to find
a suitable one. When wediscovered the SlumberTop mattress
and tried it out we were relived that is matched our requirements.
We have been more than happy with our choice.
Our experience is that various aches and pains (including
a recent hip replacement) are much relieved, and our sleeping
patterns are much improved. Pauline and Pete, Devonport
After having to sleep on my son's bed while my mum was staying
recuperating from illness,Ii found his mattress to be very
hard and uncomfortable. My son is 32 and special needs where
I had noticed recently, a dark bruise on one of his shoulders
and realized it could be from his uncomfortable mattress.Since
purchasing his king single mattress, I noticed the bruise
start to turn pink and is now gone after nearly 2 months.
I did have to sleep on his new mattress again recently, and
found it very comfortable and conforms to my body shape well,
and that the warmth coming off was quite unbearable, so I
removed one blanket from his bed. I guess this is going to
be really warm for him in the winter. I am very pleased in
purchasing this great product and am sure my son is having
the best sleeps ever! Thanks Rudi for bringing this great
product to the market. Tauke, Whangarei
I am so thrilled and sleep so much better - WHAT a great product
- where once there was real pain there is just lovely sleep!
Mary, Leeston, Canterbury
Took delivery of my slumber top at 8am this morning , I unpacked
it left it for an hour then made my bed , I went back to bed
as I work nights and all I can say is BRILLIANT !!!! I have
a new Sealy mattress that I love and wanted to go a bit further
and get rid of the ever so slight hardness of it. It is like
sleeping on a $20,000 mattress now I'm so glad I found your
website and did not go for a cheaper Trademe one. As for the
smell it is not nearly as bad as some people had told me it
can be. And I can tell it will be gone in a few days. My flatmate
thinks it's very cool and I think he will be getting one,
I also will be spreading the word. William, Parnell, Auckland
Been sleeping on top for week now. I have one complaint
- It is so comfortable I cannot get Anne out of bed in the
morning. She is having the best sleeps she has had for many
years. She can even sleep on her side - no pressure points.
Having been spreading the word around Hastings, a lot of interest.
Thank you Rudi for the promptness of your order, I ordered
on Thursday morning and it was here Friday afternoon. I have
now spent 3 nights on the Slumbertop and what a vast improvement
for my hip, knee and ankle joints. May it continue that way.
My wife had to have major surgery which meant having stomers
(bags) for both her bowel and bladder. That plus the operation
made it impossible to sleep on her side in the hospital bed.
When she got home we found that our recently purchased 75mm
Topper was the best thing we could have done. Now she can
manage to sleep on her side due to the way the topper reacts
to pressure points. Has been the best investment we have made
to help her recovery. Love the fact that it doesn't transfer
movement. I have just ordered 2 of these toppers for my daughters
for their sweet dreams. Wayne, Diamond Harbour
We have been using the Slumbertop for about a month, it is
excellent. Serge, Silverstream
Took 3 days of airing to reduce "newness" smell
to acceptable level. Fitted to sprung base, with inner spring
mattress, last Monday morning and enjoyed a most restful night's
sleep. No tossing/turning as has been the case with just a
2.5mm standard foam topper which I've been using. The rest
of the week has been a repetition of the first night and I
feel quite refreshed each morning. A great product! Invited
my younger daughter to try it for a few minutes, her comment:
"Wow! It's like lying on a cloud!" Noel, Wellington
I am loving my Slumber Top -- really comfortable, cozy and
warm, so haven't had to use my electric blanket, the pressure
point aches and pains have gone, am sleeping much better -
and, it has solved an expensive mistake I made by buying a
bed that turned out to be too firm!! Great!! Gillian, Dunedin
The Slumbertop is amazing. No more aches and pains on waking
in the morning from a too firm mattress. And it suits us both,
which is amazing. We have the best of both worlds now - good
support and luxurious comfort thanks to Slumbertop. We just
love it! Anne, Corstorphine
Slumpertop arrived safely been on the bed a week and it is
wooonderful!!!! warm (considering the appalling weather i
got it just in time!!) cosy and so comfortable no more waking
in the night with sore hips and knees and hubby says the same
he is no longer getting in and out of bed and disturbing me
either we both sleep through the night. Best investment we
have made in a long while. Thanks heaps. Patsy, Waikara
After teaching for many years, 10 years ago I developed multiple
illnesses and hence a lack of income. When I finally received
the superannuation, it was lovely to have some financial independence
again. I debated carefully if I could manage to get one of
the slumber tops or if it would be another over-rated product
and waste of precious finances.
It has surpassed my expectations!
Less pressure points (which was what I was hoping for) but
also warm - I have not had to use the electric blanket. More
importantly though, I have been able to get between 4 and
5 hours undisturbed sleep at a time and this has improved
my quality of life no end.
It is so good, I just wish I could afford one right now for
my daughter, who is developing the same problems, but we will
save up together and get her one too as this product is worth
every penny. Words do not fully express the way I feel right
now. I am rapt and very grateful to you. So please accept
this note with my heart-felt thanks. Glen, Wanganui
Thank you very much. The boys are going to sleep well tonight.
I would like to thank you for the outstanding customer service
you have provided and am happy for you to quote that on your
website. You went above and beyond. Lisa, North Canterbury
We have only slept on our SlumberTop for 4 nights but we
can't believe how much of a difference it has made. It instantly
felt as though every bone was cushioned and they no longer
ached like they used to. We absolutely love it. Thank you
so much. Bev and Len, Te Awamutu
Thanks for sending the memory foam topper pad so promptly.
I'm very pleased with it. I find it supports my painful joints
and would recommend it to others. Jenny, Gore
Hi Rudi, my topper arrived on Friday and I've had 2 wonderfully
comfortable night's sleep on it. It was exactly what I needed
for my hard slat bed and mattress. Thanks so much. Jill,
I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with the SlumberTop.
I can find only one down side to it and that is that I do
not want to get out of bed in the morning. This is truly a
splendid product and my sore back a thing of the past. Also,
your prompt service is second to none. Outstanding. Everyone
should sleep on one of these. Thanks again, Lena, Lower
Excellent company to trade with. Let us know straight away
when mattress was dispatched. We so pleased with our mattress
and is everything we hoped for in a memory foam. Thanks so
much. Robyn - Taupo
It's been about 3 weeks now. I didn't want to place feedback
until I had really tested the underlay. Honestly I knew what
I was going to say after the first night! AWESOME! It is Fabulous
and everyone should have one! Worth every penny! My only problem
is the kids keep sneaking into my bed now and I have nowhere
to sleep. I have to buy them one now Ha Ha! Thank you for
the wonderful Trade and product. Highly recommended to All
AAAAAAA+++++++. Martin, Manukau City
just want to let you know that we are delighted with our
memory foam mattress thank you so much it has made an amazing
difference more so for my husband as he has a bad back for
many years once again thank you. Ante & Jenny, Otautau
A1 communication and delivery. I love it, thanks very much.
Sandy - Dunedin
What an amazing product! We were going to get rid of our
mattress and box sprung base which cost us a fortune only
3 years ago and was like sleeping on concrete! Then I saw
your advertisement on Choice TV and we bought the 2 inch Queen
size Slumbertop and have had fantastic sleep since and the
bed is now very comfortable and warm! I managed to get rid
of the electric blanket and find the bed is warm to get into
and stays warm all night long. Wow thank you, we saved ourselves
a lot of money by buying your product. Cheers. Gail and
Awesome topper, so warm at nights and waking up so refreshed
Look forward to hoping in bed now as it helps with all my
aches n pains Will even buy for my children so they get a
better nights sleep Thanx again for a wonderful product. Maria,
Many thanks for the prompt and efficient service from the
ordering to the receiving of the Memory Foam Slumber Top.
Before sleeping on this wonderful topper-pad, I suffered from
restless nights due to sore and numb hips but now I have the
best sleep ever ... no more tossing and turning . I Can thoroughly
recommend this product to anyone who suffers sore hips. I
now enjoy a good night's sleep. Stephanie, Hastings
This is to thank you on our win of the Slumber Top with Choice
TV , Since I hurt my back in 1977 and was in Otara Spinal
Unit I have tried all types of beds and I have never been
able to get a good night's sleep until now. So with thanks
to Slumber top I am getting to sleep. Thank You Very Much.
This is the second topper pad I have bought. We found ours
so comfortable that I bought this one as a birthday gift for
my parents. - Sandra, Carterton
My back and hips are slowly returning to normal after just
a couple of nights sleep on this magic product. I'm 75mm higher
than my other half as he prefers the firm bed and I just love
the warm, yet not hot, full support of my new bed!! Thank
you so much. - Rose, Albany
Great service and a fantastic product thanks heaps for a
better sleep. - Greg, Christchurch
I'm very pleased with my topper. So pleased that I want to
get another for my friend. I'll go to your website and order
it now. Thanks. Nancy, Kaitaia
This is the third topper we've bought, excellent trader and
great product, thanks! Mark, Tauranga
All received in prompt and perfect order, thank you folks!
We did get a laugh on unwrapping the Slumbertop and found
we had to work fast - the rate of expansion rivalled that
of a lady after a tight corset's removal.
The first night was a bit strange, getting used to the lack
of reaction of a sprung mattress but by night two we both
slept well and awoke much more refreshed than usual.
As a hot sleeper and especially with it being so hot overnight
I wondered how it would be with the topper, huge relief to
be able to report that overheating was NOT a problem!
Thank you for the great service and we have already recommended
the Slumbertop to friends.
Cheers and Zzzzzzzzzzzz's
Jannine and Gary, Stoke
Thank you for your quick service. My husband is finding the
pad just great, he has had surgery on his hip and it is going
to take some time to come right and this pad has made the
bed so much softer to sleep on. - Sheryl , Hamilton
I bought a new bed but found the mattress extremely firm.
Admittedly after a few months hubby and I started to get used
to it. As we both did 12 hr shifts and physical work all we
wanted was a comfy bed. The 75mm Slumbertop just made so much
difference - we now look forward to going to bed at night.
I even hauled it off the bed and took it camping! Didn't want
to be without it! S. Smith, Timaru
Great, fast and friendly trade. Mattress (topper) is so
comfy and it has already made a difference to my back problems,
best investment I have done in a long time. Annette, Whangaparaoa
I am waiting for a hip replacement, living with terrible pain
and have had a hard time trying to get some sleep - hence
the decision to buy the pad. And what a difference. The first
night I slept right through until 5.30 am which was unheard
of. Subsequently although I do wake at various times I find
I can get straight back to sleep really quickly which certainly
wasn't the situation before. I used to dread going to bed
and lying awake for ages. What a wonderful improvement the
Slumber Pad has made and once I've got my new bionic hip it'll
be very hard to get up ever again! Many thanks; a great investment.
I slept in this morning; let that be testament to how good
my bed now feels. Thanks. Ryan, Wellington
Great Service, prompt delivery. Love the topper pad. Nikki,
Just dropping you a wee note to say thank you. We got our
Slumber Top about 3 weeks ago and from the first night we
slept better. After the first 7 to 10 days, it wasn't coming
off the bed.Now we wouldn't be without it. Deeper more restful
sleep, not moving around anywhere near as much. My Osteopath
says I don't need to see her as much, as I'm not waking up
as sore anywhere near as much as I was and my back responded
a lot faster to treatment since we got the Slumber Top. So
thank you. David, Mangere Bridge
Great trader. Very quick with contact and delivery. Terrific
product. Highly recommended. Jeff, Mt Maunganui
Excellent trader, seem to have a lot more dreams, and a deeper
sleep since buying this topper, wish I'd bought it years ago!
Worth every cent, thanks. Timothy, Palmerston North
I'm really liking your product - it has made our 10 year
old bed into a new one! It is very comfortable - very warm
(no more electric blanket required) - stops partner disturbance
as it doesn't bounce - I've been sleeping better since we
started using it - would definitely recommend. Helen, Karori
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! I used to wake up every morning
with a sore back and hips that I could hardly move for a few
hours (didn't help that the bed is now 10 years old and too
expensive to replace). Since sleeping on this for the last
3 weeks, I've woken up without any pain. None! I've also had
better quality sleep as the mattress is sooo comfortable!!
Hubby loves it too and feels more refreshed in the mornings
as well. Very cost effective compared to replacing the entire
bed. A+++++ Leesa, Castor Bay
Brilliant product and lightning fast delivery. Bed is now
sooooo comfortable and warm. TOTALLY recommended trader and
product. Roge, Foxton Beach
Excellent trade and very quick delivery.. We love the product.
Fabulous trade who went out of his way to enable a speedy
pick up! Fantastic communication. Great product. Many thanks.
Maria North Shore
I purchased a new bed about 4 years ago with a firm mattress.
I sleep on my side & over time aches in my hips and neck
got worse causing me to turn almost every 20 minutes through
the night disturbing my sleep considerably. I then invested
in this topper and have not had a single problem with my hips
since, turn far less overnight and feel more rested. Do not
think twice about investing in a topper if you have similar
problems to me. Fast delivery too. Brian Whangarei
Very hard to get up in the morning! Great trade thanks, saved
me having to buy a whole new bed. Karen Stratford
Its been a few weeks now and we love the topper!! Thanks
so much. Hannah, Matamata
Had my doubts that this was going to help my back problems.
My aches & pains have gone too. Amazing!! Fast service,
great product. Turu, Onehunga
My Girlfriend has enjoyed the pleasure of your product that
we now need one for her bed too. It's such a wonderful product.
What a difference this product has made to my hard uncomfortable
mattress, its supports your whole body... very comfortable.
I read all the great feed back and brought the slumber top
3''. I now have been sleeping on it for over 2 weeks. I'm
very happy with my purchase. Great Seller, Great product,
fast delivery too. Thank you!! Melveen - Glendene
WOW!! What an Awsum Trader to Deal with. Man this is such
a great product. The best sleep I've had in Years!! I thinking
it's what everyone should have! Thank you sooo much! Ian,
I received my SlumberTop a few weeks ago and felt I must
tell you how delighted I am with it. Not only is it soooo
comfortable but it keeps you warm as well.We had a few frosty
nights recently here in Rotorua, but I was as "snug as
a bug in a rug". Dorothy, Rotorua
I am enjoying the underlay (2" Queen) -I have ME so
I wake up feeling sore all over like a truck has rolled over
me and this has really worked for me, for the first time in
years I now wake up pain free! Thank you so much!!! I had
a $700 Magnetic Wool Biomag and that was just a big con so
I got rid of it after 4 years laying on it and got your product
instead. I have been recommending your Slumber Top to everyone
I know! My only regret is that I should have got the thicker
one as both my husband and I are feeling the pressure on our
hips when we lay on our side. Any suggestions as to how I
could resolve this-maybe get an extra piece of memory foam
and place it underneath our underlay where our hips would
rest? Toni, Tauranga
Great trade, Sleeping has never been so comfortable. Fast
contact and info. Rob, Hobsonville
Thanks, arrived next day, using in the camper now and very
happy. may have to purchase one for home as well. Russell,
Really amazing product, great communication, quick delivery.
Thank you very much, my wife is not having to wake up with
a stiff back as before. Rau, West Harbour
On the 10th June, I mentioned the Slumber Top I bought from
you recently to my friend, how great it was and how I thought
it would help his back pain. He ordered one that same day
and you delivered it to him the following day. He just called
me to say how relieved he is; his back feels so much better.
My husband and I love our own too! Franky, Whangaparaoa
First one went into the Camper, so impressed that had to
buy one for home as well. Recommend the product and the seller.
Russel, New Plymouth
Topper (2" Queen) arrived yesterday and put on bed.
We have a new innerspring matteress with a pillow top and
this topper just "topped" it off. Beautiful to sleep
on. Like sleeping on a cloud but firmer. Just one question.
Do you recommend removing the electric blanket? I have heard
it is not good practice to use one with the topper pad. Hugh,
(Our response: You may use an electric blanket on top but
recommend a LOW setting and switch off before retiring.)
Thanks very much for the quality product. Very impressed
with the quick delivery - I ordered it in the morning and
it arrived the next day! Very nice to sleep on compared to
my Woolrest Biomag which was rubbish so I sold it. I woke
up with no aches like I would usually. 10/10 Thanks so much!!!
We have found that the topper is great, really soft once
you get used to it, my back is so much better after a week,
thanks. David, Howick
Thank you for the mattress - it is wonderful! I am sleeping
so much better & my aches & pains are going. I expected
to have a bit of trouble with the smell, but no problems at
all! Today I gave your email address to a friend, so hopefully
there will be another happy customer for you again soon. Anne,
Brilliant, thanks very much. Anyone thinking about a slumber-top,
stop thinking and buy one! Chloe, Kerikeri
Great service Topper Pad arrived within 2 days. Should have
bought this a long time ago. Have suffered with sore neck
and shoulders but with topper pad I have had no pain and can
sleep comfortably on my side with no pain at all. Would recommend
to anyone with aches and pains. Thanks again. Ian, Clive
Excellent - both the item and the seller :). Fast shipping
and great communication, very helpful. We bought the topper
to go on top of a hard foam mattress for our little campervan
and it's now the comfiest bed we own! Lovely and soft zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
As I told you I have previously tried something similar at
a friends house but Ian had not. I am delighted because Ian
has always been such a poor sleeper and convinced nothing
could help him. He loves it too and we have both had improved
sleep already. This is superior to my friends one --- soooo
luxurious. Thank you once again. Kay & Ian, Northland
Excellent prompt service memory foam slumber top well made,
extremely comfortable and eased all my aching spine and joints.
Thank you! Elaine
Thanks for the supply of the memory foam "Slumber Top"
topper pad. The Slumbertop has made a great deal of difference
to our mattress which was very hard. I now wake up pain free.
We would thoroughly recommend one of these toppers for improving
a too hard mattress. Many thanks. Heather
I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE the
Slumbertop. For years I have suffered from lower back pain
and would find it difficult to get up out of bed each morning
because of pain and stiffness. With the SlumberTop I can get
up out of bed with no problems and I pretty much stay in one
position all night instead of tossing and turning. The one
problem I have with the product is I don't want to get out
of bed! Thanks so much and I will definitely be recommending
this to others. Helena, Wellington
The SlumberTop is just wonderful to lie upon and I had the
best night sleep for ages as I suffer with a lot of back pain.
Just letting you know that our order has been safely delivered.
We have been impressed at the efficiency of the dispatch process
and the super-quick delivery, and also the careful packaging.
The overlay is for the visitors' bed in our spare room and
as such has not yet been tested out - however, it appears
to be deliciously comfortable and is superior to the one we
have on our own bed in that it actually fits the bed. Our
own (supposedly) king-size overlay is very skimpy and leaves
about 3cm space down each side of the bed, so we were delighted
to find that your own brand is the proper size. We will be
very happy to recommend your product. With thanks. Jenny,
Awesome trader, does not get better. Thanks. Mathew, Auckland
Very happy! Julie, Newmarket
Fast service and love sleeping on this! Susan, Kawakawa
I brought this for my mother who is 81yrs and she is very
happy with it. Amo, Manukau
Very prompt service, good feedback to queries and very satisfied
with product. John, Wellington
Great service awesome product. Shane, Weymouth
A fantastic trader! Product is exactly what I hoped for,
my husband is now waking up in the morning in a good mood
with no back pain! Can't thank you enough, prompt arrival
of the memory foam topper pad, thx. Elaine, Hamilton
Great trade, thank you... my memory foam topper is just BLISS!!
Fast delivery and clear communication. Cheers. Mary, Morningside
Awesome, super fast delivery & a lovely guy too! This
SlumberTop just saved us a $3500 unnescessary expense for
a new bed!!! Absolutely recommend. Karyn, Avondale
Excellent product great service, pleased to recommend. John,
Thank you topper pad arrived this morning great service.
Really happy with the topper, my wife is pregnant and has
been having awful sleeps, now is loving her siestas! I'm pretty
chuffed myself, cheers! Brendan, Auckland
Excellent product. We are so happy with the the memory foam
topper (50mm) it has definitely improved the comfort of our
bed - we miss it a lot when we go away! Recommend product
and trader. Cheers. Katie, Manukau
If you can fault this product, you have never slept on one.
Absolutely Fantastic product. Tight delivery requirements.
No Problem. This trader was more than helpful. Thanks. Wayne,
Just wanted to say thank you for your prompt and professional
service - you were right - the 3" does provide that extra
bit of indulgence and the extra cost is irrelevant. Thanks,
no more aches and pains, I can now sleep in comfort!!! Ngahuia,
I used to have a single bed with a memory foam mattress that
I loved, when I bought my new bedroom suite (super king) it
had inner sprung mattresses, which were killing me at night
with my hip injury. Then I got your slumper tops (sic) and
thought it would help. I couldn't begin to thank you for them!
I wouldn't go back to the memory foam mattress now. I haven't
slept so good as I have this past few nights since I had my
accident. I am certain that the support of the inner sprung
mattress with the topper gives a better bed all round. I really
cannot thank you enough for that. Jasmin, Dunedin
The Slumber Top is great and we always look forward to getting
back home - life without it is unthinkable.
Don, Freemans Bay, Auckland
Fantastic product, does not have very strong odour as expected.
it takes away all your pressure points, like sleeping on cloud.
Thank you. Mary, Manukau
My topper has just arrived and I'm thrilled with it. Thank
you for prompt attention. Elizabeth, Wellington
Wow - after a couple of weeks sleeping on this - my morning
back problems have all but gone away. SOOOOOO comfortable!
I just had my first night on your mattress topper. WOW, so
luxurious! Usually I toss and turn when first in bed, this
time I lay there dead still, so comfortable I couldn't believe
it. I slept like log. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Ingrid, Takapuna
Ahhhh! Having spent months researching and arguing over the
merits of various toppers on the market my husband and I finally
decided to go for it with these. We couldn't be more thrilled
- higher quality than we'd dared hope for and very, very effective.
I start thinking about bedtime at lunchtime .... zzzzz. Heather,
I just wanted to let you know that I had an amazing sleep
last night. My bed was warmer and I didn't keep waking up
to turn over when I got sore on one side. Usually I wake up
with sore ankles, knees, hips, back, elbows, shoulders, hands
and wrists from the cheap mattress provided in my unit. I
had none of that today and feel really good. I had a Tempur
mattress in my previous home and this is just as good for
a fraction of the price. It has the added advantage that that
I can roll it up and take it with me when I go. Thanks very
much for your attentive and prompt service. I really appreciate
it. Lucy, Auckland City
After looking at and trying out several expensive pressure
relieving mattress options for our daughter who has chronic
pain, we were beginning to lose hope of finding something
that would help her get a more comfortable sleep and would
be affordable for us. Then we found the Slumpertop 3"
topper... and after the first night she was sleeping better,
and has even said her sleep was "good" for the first
time in 2 years. We can't thank you enough for this wonderful
product, and for the affordable price. Definitely recommending
this to others we know with sleep and chronic pain conditions.
Nicola, Papakowhai, Wellington
I am sleeping like a baby on my new Slumber Top. Thank you.
It has my full endorsement. Kerry, Hawkes Bay
We have bought a couple of king singles from you last month
so my children can try it out first and it is the best, even
my husband tried it out and it is great. Well I did say that
I will be a repeat buyer. Sandra, Glendene
After a weekend away from home I couldn't wait to get back
to my comfortable SlumberTop. It makes ordinary mattresses
feel like palliasses. Alistair, Pukekohe
We have found the mattress topper to be fantastic! We feel
like we are sleeping on a cloud. Have to turn over less too.
Thanks for a great trade. We recommend you and your product.
Alana, Hibiscus Coast
Excellent product, great to sleep on. Get a solid night's
sleep now. Thank you. Clem, Morrinsville
Wow what a difference. I sleep all night now and wake without
a back ache. Tony, Bay of Islands
I am sleeping so much better now and saved the cost of a
new mattress. Wonderful product. Karen, Northcote
Great product. Many thanks. Lorrie, Rotorua
I used a single Tempurpedic topper in the USA. I find your
SlumberTop softer and more comfortable and a quarter the price.
Thank you. Sonia, Auckland
I just love the comfort and have bought one for my dad. Tony,
I wasn't so sure the first night but soon got used to it.
Now I wouldn't do without it. Dean, Auckland
Hi have received the toppa pad fast service and impressed
with everything even got instruction which were really helpful
thank you very much and will recommend you to my friends.
It took me a few days to get used to it. Now I don't want
to get out of bed. Ricks, Hastings
