Shipped in 3 separate pieces – firm, medium and pillow top. As three separate pieces, this full size memory foam mattress is easily handled by one person. The firm and medium sections can be stacked as a firm base or medium base, depending on your mattress preference. The three pieces, when set up, are neatly stacked in a gauze cover, included with the mattresses. It fits nicely on a platform bed, or into a slat bed on top of box springs. I highly recommend this mattress
I thought the picture was showing a cross-section on the item, did not expect it to actually come as give separate pieces of foam, which caused us to purchase a second mattress cover to help keep all of the pieces together. Got it because we have an antique asian bed which is shorter and not as wide as a standard american full size mattress. Bed is in guest bedroom, and guests say it is very firm.
I ordered this for my vintage full size bed. It's just a tad narrow for the bed. I might have been better off ordering the regular full size. I've have several guests use this bed and all have said they've loved the mattress.One has asked where I got it and I had a dog/house sitter use the bed, who told me that she was late for work, because she just wanted to lie in the bed in the morning.
