If you want a really firm mattress that is very well made, this is it. However, it was just too firm for me, even with the 'soft top.' I have not been able to sleep on it after the first couple of nights because it is almost like sleeping on the floor as far as firmness. I gave the mattress and box springs away... and that was a lot of money gone because this mattress is expensive. Just too firm for me but may work for others.
Well about 2 years ago, thought I would save a little money went to one of those place's that have good deals bought an extra Firm and after 1 year it started showing it was a cheap peace of crap, I have rods in my back and I have to have a good bed or I suffer, I came to overstock and knew this bed was wonderful, and I also know you get what you pay for, the cheap one I had bought was less then $300 and it lasted less then 2 years, now I sleep pain free, sleep great, feels so wonderful I will never again buy the cheap ones this is the one for me after 1 night WOW I love it if you have back trouble? or having trouble , buy it if you do not have the money save for it I am telling you it is well worth every penny
I purchased this set after purchasing another Beautyrest set that was too soft. This set is very well made. It has a higher coil count and thicker gauge coil which make it much firmer than your standard set. I did add a Beautyrest memory foam mattress topper for a little added softness. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase; it is exceptionally well made and should last for many years.
