I did a lot of online research before purchasing this mattress. To me, that made more sense than trying out different mattresses at a store, for only a few moments each, which really doesn't tell one how comfortable it will be in the longrun. I selected this one based on reviews and price, after deciding that a latex mattress was what I wanted. Due to pain after a medical procedure, I found it was a bit too firm for my needs, so added a mattress topper, which I also purchased from Overstock. I have no regrets. The mattress we replaced was a 9-year-old Tempurpedic which had begun to sag into vallies where we normally sleep. I like the fact that the latex mattress will not sag over time. A good mattress at a good price.
