From the beginning I was unimpressed. Two thin sponge eggcrate layers encased in cotton fluff. The sponge could hardly rate as a mattress pad. Whatever to say, for two nights it's been used it was comfortable. I wonder how it will withstand more use. The old saying 'you get what you pay for' probably is true in this case.
I "inherited" my queen futon sofa from an old boyfriend over 12 years ago. It was probably at least 5 years old at that time, making my old mattress at least 17 years old. It is my sofa and it is my guest bed. I finally realized it needed to be replaced and took advantage of a Christmas check from my parents to do this. This is the kind of purchase that I would prefer to do in person, but I knew anything would be better than the old futon mattress so I bought it. And I love it so far. In 17 years futon technology has changed a lot. I was shocked at how lightweight this mattress was, and yet it is very comfortable to sit on, and very well made. The mattress arrived vacuum packed, and 24 hours after unpacking it and letting it "breathe" it was fully normal. Now my challenge is finding a tasteful cover!
As we all have different standards, I cannot speak for others, but my review will say this..... It is thick, well made, simple, the 8" height gives it character in my bedroom & am enjoying it so much...I got some really funky comforters & sheets.I also got very simple comforters & sheets... I can change the ambiance in my room at anytime. I also had a great time picking different pillows & body pillows that are so plush. I am so happy with it, & have woken every morning with a smile on my face, especially as I had just undergone treatment for my leg & lower back. A simple, beautiful addition to my bedroom that i like to keep simple...A bedroom is meant for a bed & a few decorations, candles, flowers that compliment you...Our bodies are entirely made of elements & we should treat it with much care, especially when resting & entering the realm of sleep & dreams.
