Shipping was extremely quick and we received the mattress undamaged. It was larger than I expected for a full size mattress, in fact, at first I thought they sent a Queen size. I couldn't decide on purchasing a more expensive 8 inch 5 lb density or this one, and I'm glad I purchased this one. The density is perfect and the quality of the mattress as a whole is excellent. It expanded to full size in less than 24 hours, and the odor did disappear.....at least my daughter hasn't complained about it. We are very happy with the mattress.
