We bought this queen mattress 3 months ago and are still in love with it. It was much heavier than I expected. We set it up and didn't put anything at all on it for 48 hours (we wanted to make sure it expanded properly & aired out). The smell was gone after a couple days, and we couldn't be happier. It's supportive without being too firm, and you can't tell when your partner gets in bed or moves around. We went mattress shopping at 7 different stores and decided that for the money, we should take a gamble with this one online. We figured that if we didn't like it, we would turn it into a "guest bed" and buy another mattress locally. I'm so glad we took the chance! The only mattress we liked better than this one (of all the ones we laid on in stores) cost $4,000, which was too much for us. I was having back problems (that's why we finally decided to buy a new bed), and this mattress 100% fixed it. On my old mattress, I'd wake up with a sore lower back, and the pain lasted most of the day. After sleeping on this mattress though, I never wake up with a sore back; my back feels great every day, all day. My better half and I are very different body builds/weights (330lbs and 130lbs), and we both love the mattress. It's firm but soft at the same time; in retrospect, I felt this mattress is most similar to a $2,299 memory foam bed- cloud supreme - so this was a great buy in my opinion. Since you can't lay on this mattress before you order it, I recommend looking at the specs (the mattress layers, thickness, and memory foam densities), then go to a store & lay on a mattress with similar specs-- that way you have some rough idea of what to expect before you order. Tempurature will also affect how firm memory foam is (warmer = softer). We're using the durabed foldable frame from overstock with it. We decided to go with memory foam because one day while travelling, we stayed at a hotel & found the bed to be amazing - we pulled up the covers and realized it was memory foam, not a spring mattress. Ever since then, we wanted our next mattress to be memory foam instead of springs. And it definately beats the sagging, uneven spring mattresses of the past! We chose it for comfort, but supposedly, it is good for asthma and allergies too (dust mites & stuff don't typically get into memory foam but they do live in traditional spring mattresses). This was such a great buy.
