I ordered the king size for me and my husband - to put over our existing box spring set. I was a little worried because of the reviews saying the bed is too firm. My sister, who has a Serta memory foam mattress, told me to just put a topper on it if does feel too hard. The mattress arrived in about a week in a waist high box. The UPS guy put it by the front door. I easily moved it into the house myself (1 story house). The next day my husband and I set it up on our bed. As soon as we removed the outer white mesh-type wrapper, the bed started to inflate (like a life raft!). We quickly positioned the bed and removed the remaining plastic wrapping. It finished inflating and I lay down on it. It felt very comfortable and molded around me - it didn't feel hard to me at all. I turned on the celing fan and opened up the door to outside, but honestly I never even smelled anything. My husband said he did not notice any smell at all. We put the quilted mattress pad on it later that night and I finished making up the bed. We've had it for 2 nights and I have slept like a log. Yesterday and today I didn't want to get out of bed. It molds to you and does not sag. When you get up, it returns to it's shape - it doesn't sag. Usually I like a very soft bed and, when travelling, often complain about hard beds. But those other beds I slept in had coils, so maybe that was the difference. This doesn't hurt, it molds around you, and I guess it's firm, but it feels so comfortable to me. Go ahead and try it, and if it's too firm - just buy a topper for it. My sister has the Serta brand memory foam mattress, bought on Overstock, and she has a 2" memory foam topper for it to make it softer for her and her husband. For the price you can't beat the Bodipedic 8-inch memory foam mattress!
