Does it hold heat?

No. This is a gel infused product, gel is infused to reduce heat retention. It is also ventilated, you can see fine vertical holes drilled from top to bottom, these small holes increase the air circulation through the topper and carries away all the heat accumulated. In addition Lucid uses open cell technology which makes the memory foam cells more breathable. This too further increases air circulation. The combined effect of gel, open cell technology and ventilations allow  easy exchange of body heat to the surroundings giving you a cool, comfortable sleep.

Softness & body support

As mentioned earlier this is a 2.5 inch thick topper, if you are someone with above average build this is not for you. It gives medium level body support enough to make you comfortable and to reduce any mild hip, neck pains. This is definitely a soft topper, you will sink into it as much as the 2.5″ thickness allow, but it has a good density of 3 pounds which assures enough body support for a person with average build. Softness and foam density are not always related, a high density topper can be very soft and vice versa, it all depends on the manufacturing process. However body support is directly proportional to foam density, so a 3 pound dense foam whether soft or firm can provide good body support.

What you may not like about this topper:

Irrespective of the good reviews  it has, the topper has a mild to strong odor that keeps buyers complaining. I think it varies with product to product but it takes 4 days to a few weeks to completely get rid of the smell.
