My husband and I had a tempurpedic that was beyond worn out. We finally made the decision to buy a new one, but neither of use took the time to go shop for a new mattress. After reaching the point of desperation for a good nights sleep, I found this mattress on Overstock. I wanted a firmer mattress so ordered. We have had it about a month or two now, the first few nights I was regretting the purchase, but after about a week, it's perfect. I don't have back pain when I wake up, I just asked my husband if he has gotten used to the mattress, he said yes, he loves it. It is EXTRA FIRM though. Be sure of this before you purchase. They aren't kidding about how firm it is. There is no dipping/sagging/squeeking, etc. It's great and I love it.

I love this mattress - Beautyrest Elite Plato Extra Firm King-size Mattress After dismal experiences with the popular PILLOW TOP mattresses, I finally decided to abandon that design because the "pillow" will eventually lose its ability to recover and will leave a huge hollow in the top of the mattress. This happens even if regular rotation of the mattress is performed on schedule. So my solution to the sagging pillow top problem is this: 1. Buy the firmest mattress that exists. 2. Add a memory foam mattress topper that meets your preference for softness/firmness. So that's what I did. This Beautyrest Elite Plato Extra Firm King-size Mattress is VERY firm. I added a 3-inch memory foam topper (a 2-inch would also work fine). It's a great combination. When the topper loses its memory (and it WILL), I'll buy a new topper. That's much more sensible than buying a whole new mattress, in my opinion. I've slept on this mattress with a 250 lb partner for a month now. It is solid and stable, but comfy with the topper. Delivery was superb. I've recommended this combo to many of my friends who spent twice the price on their pillow top mattresses - they're ready to make the change too.

We bought this mattress a few months ago but wanted to wait until we had slept on it for awhile before witting a review. This is a very and I do mean very, very firm mattress. This is just what we were looking for after having a pillow top mattress that we hated. After sleeping on this mattress my husband and I don't have any back pain in the mornings anymore. I have read where some have put mattress pads because the mattress is so firm. We do have a mattress pad but not one of the ones that add any thickness. It took a few weeks to get used to sleeping on such a firm mattress and at first I thought maybe we had made a mistake, but now we love it and are getting the best sleep we've had in years. We have noticed no body indentations that you get with some cheaper mattresses. The guys who delivered the mattress set where on time, careful and very polite. They did their job and then took away the old mattress set. I was leery of buying a mattress set on line but have to say the experience was great. Quality mattress and savings of about 1000.00 over the prices here where I live. So I highly recommend giving Overstock.com a chance.
