May have to ship to a freight forwarder. Or check with Carlos Furniture they sell memory foam mattresses.

I have gotten them shipped from Linen Source and Macy's. I really loved the one I got from Linen Source, Iso-Cool. Actually, just looked it up on Amazon and found someone who will ship that particular one here, iSo-Cool on Amazon

I was going to suggest Macy's but every one I looked at there had a disclaimer that they don't ship it to USVI (or other territories).

I got 3 from Walmart last month, they shipped USPS. You need to make sure you are choosing items sold by walmart and not one of the other companies they list on their webpages though. Likely Penneys would ship to vi as well, as we buy all sorts of things from them.

Everyone ships to VI Cargo or Paradise Freight in Miami.

Everyone? I guess I'm a nobody then.

Overstock.com has them and has a big sign in red top of the page noting that they now ship to "Virgin Islands US":

FYI on this: They still charge International shipping rates. The shipping charge for me was $35 for one set of sheets. It may be worth it for a good mattress topper you can't find elsewhere. Just didn't want people to get all excited.

I'd not looked at the shipping but it doesn't surprise me although I don't think it's the retailer's "fault" but the policy of the shippers if the package is bulky. I've had several large items which would travel interstate for next to nothing via, for instance, UPS but shipping here hugely expensively and not worth it. Fortunately I have an option so have the items shipped interstate and then they get to me a week or two later. Other items I've had shipped to friends stateside and then sent on to me flat rate priority if size allows. It's always a juggling act.

I had all the cushions and mattresses for a 40' sailboat shipped here priority mail - the company vacuumed shrink wrapped them into very manageable boxable sizes no problem.

Sounds like my memory foam mattresses. Two twin XLs each came in a small box. It was like an inflatable raft when they pulled the rip cord.

I got mine on Amazon shipped here no problem. When I get home I'll post a link for u. It was like $120 and VERY comfortable! Now on our guest room bed, everyone comments on it. It does gas a bit so we kept it on the patio for a coupe days to air out.

I think what was intended here is that all companies will ship to VI Cargo or Paradise Freight not that everyone on the island uses them.

That said, I purchased my topper from Amazon and shipped through Paradise Freight.

Thank you everyone. I was able to order the one mentioned by A&A, from Amazon, no shipping charge after I questioned it. It was a less expensive one from them that i tried to order that indicated could not ship.

There are some companies in general that will not ship to known freight forwarders for whatever their reasons.
