I received this mattress topper and two pillows yesterday, I unrolled the mattress and two pillows, I had left the mattress on my bed along with the two pillows to reshape, the mattress topper and pillows reshaped to its full 2 inches within an hour,I bought the queen size for a full size bed and it was perfect size for our bed not needing to cut any excess topper off. the mattress and pillows had a slight smell but nothing too bothersome, I think the pillows would be more comfortable if they didn't have the contour shape, but I'm sure I will get use to them soon. I fell asleep right after laying down lastnight, instead of having to spend over 2 hours falling asleep. I have had sore muscles and back for years I sure wish I would have bought this sooner this is the best sleep I have had in years and actually slept through the night without tossing and turning, and withoyt waking up in pain in the morning. if you are looking for a great priced memory foam topper that is very comfortable this is the one!
