When my boyfriend and I moved in together, a challenge we had was our bed ... it was too firm for him, but perfectly comfortable for me. So, we purchased this last month and, after sleeping on it for a few weeks, I can definitely say it has made our bed SOFT! I was, admittedly, a little skeptical before I purchased it -- I wasn't sure if we'd notice that much of a difference. But, we noticed a difference immediately, and it was a great solution for two people who have different sleep preferences (a little firmer vs a little softer). Would definitely recommend this if you want to soften your bed without buying a whole new bed!
