can we use a foam topper or mattress pad in couch position?
My son just bought this futon and is complaining that its hard to sit on. I was wondering if I could go out and buy a thick mattress pad or mattress foam topper of some sort, put a sheet over it and still be able to use comfortably as a couch. I see posts where people put a mattress pad, but only as a bed. I don't want to go out and buy this additional stuff, if it won't work in couch position. I was hoping someone had some experience with this.
THanks so much!!!!

I use a mattress topper on mine. However it cant be to thick. Because it would be harder to bend when using in the seating position. The one I use adds about another 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thickness.
No extra padding will help with it in the couch position, my advice is find something better than that futon if you want something comfortable
no the futon is the couch it doesn't have a way to put a regular futon mattress inside to replace..it actually comes in pieces
We couldn't use this futon without one! I bought a full size mattress topper off Amazon for $20 and made a cover for it - sitting on it without the topper is BRUTUAL!
i had this couch for a long time and when it got old/beat up i used a memory foam bed topper to stuff into the bottom of the couch. the bottom side unzips so you can stuff it in. it made it a lot softer. go for it! :) i used 2" foam
