we purchased this mattress because of all the excellent ratings it received on the site. It is as good as everyone says. My husband and I both have arthritis problems and the old mattress we had was causing more pain. We decided on this one after reading up on it and getting input from other people as well as the ratings on this site. Would definately recomment this mattress to anyone thinking about a foam mattress.No smell when it was first set up and all our regular bedding fit just fine. A really great buy and very comfortable.
