I ordered this mattress for my 6'2" son, whose futon was too short for him and not very comfortable. What a difference the larger mattress has made! He doesn't feel cramped in a "too short" bed anymore. Also, the thickness of the pillow top mattress gives him more mattress between him and the bed frame. He sleeps much better on the new matrees and bed frame (also purchased on Overstock.com). He had been complaining of back aches, but no longer. The mattress is not too soft or too hard, but just right!! Thanks! '
