I had shopped locally at furniture stores for a memory foam mattress for my son, but the prices were very high. This mattress cost over 3 times less than I would've spent at a furniture store for a similiar mattress! The quality was actually better than I expected! The mattress "expanded" to size over night, but we did wait 24 hours before placing it on his bedframe. We are all thrilled with the price & quality of this mattress & I would recommend it to anyone.
