Let me start off by saying I rarely, if ever, write a review of a product. In this case I really want to warn others before making the same mistake I did. I own several Simmons mattresses and they are all exceptional in quality, which is why this one is so disappointing! The mattress arrived rolled up in a box and was supposed to fully expand within a day or so. It has been four weeks and the mattress is still a full 5 1/2 inches too short and 2 inches narrower than the frame of my son's STANDARD twin platform frame. Sizing issues aside, the mattress is so SOFT and SQUISHY it feels like a cheap air mattress. I am 185lbs, my wife is significantly less, and the mattress fully collapses to the bed frame if either one of us try to sit on it with our 20 month old son! The price seems like a good deal and is supposedly possible because of direct ship from Simmons, but you can throw any cost savings out the window when you have to go out immediately and buy a replacement. Be forewarned this product does not live up to the Beauty Rest or Simmons names!!! I wish I could reverse this purchase altogether.
This mattress was so compact when it arrived wrapped in plastic, but immediately it expanded to a nice thick 10 inch mattress ready for use in my son's bedroom. No weird odors at all. I slept in it to see if I liked it and would order more for our guest house if it was comfortable-- and it was! I slept like a baby on its firm yet plush top mattress. I've always been happy with simmons mattresses and this one did not disappoint. I was a little apprehensive due to the fact there was only one review from a petite person. I am over 200 lbs and I thought the mattress was just fine for my size (softness wise.) It didn't sink in and I felt very supported, but it allowed my hips to relax and be in alignment with the rest of my body. I'm 5'4" and my feet came to the bottom of the mattress and maybe even hung over just a bit. When my grandmother came to stay at our house she always complained that my tempurpedic mattress was too firm for her liking, but now she is very happy sleeping on our new Simmons Beautyrest Elements. Hope that helps!
This is a very nice mattress BUT be warned - it is 3" shorter! Ours measures 71.5" and the description says 74" long. Very comfortable and popped into place right away. I am very susceptible to smells and have horrible allergies but this mattress was fine straight from the box. Wish the lengths were accurate so I could get 2 more for my children - bummer!
The twin mattress is ideal for a petite person like me weighing less than 120 lbs but for a heavier person the mattress is not firm enough. Recommend it for small size people only. So far I have been sleeping good on this mattress, no more tossing and turning like I used to, happy.

Apparently I did not read this description close enough to know that this was not a good choice for children. It is ridiculously soft. You sink like 2 inches. Can't be returned so we will keep until we can't stand anymore or our child gets scoliosis
we went to sleepy's to find a mattress for our son, and they wanted $500. we found this for half the price and took the chance buying a mattress online. It came well packaged and is comfortable, even though somewhat soft, but perfect for a child's weight and comfortable enough for me to sit and read him a story at night. great product from a great brand at a really good price.
