Had 2 other people tells us about this bed and so glad we ordered it! Free shipping was an added bonus. Very firm when you first lay down but it acclimated to our body within minutes. No odor and was fully useable within 5 hours. We bought the gel top because my sister said it was a bit cooler in the summer.
This is my second Bodipedic mattress and I love it. I slept on it the first night. The packaging smell was gone the second night but still not bad at all. I sleep cooler and wake up more rested than ever. Excellent buy. I will purchase again if I need another mattress.
The mattress arrived with the zipped bed cover already on the mattress and the zipper was broke. I was not able to unzip to take cover off for the bed to be able to recover all the way. The mattress only recovered about 90%. I reported to customer service and they made note of it. Overstock did a great job of satisfying my disappointment of the product. The bed is really firm at first but softens after your body heat is absorbed and conforms to you to support your body. I was sore for the first week until my body adjusted. I sleep without pressure points. I'm a side sleeper and my arm does fall a sleep making me turn over but I don't toss nearly as much as I use to.
