I've had this mattress about a month now on a platform bed, and I'm very impressed. This is my first foam mattress, and I find it more comfortable than conventional innerspring mattresses. Latex is a better topping layer than memory foam--it is more resilient, i.e., recovers much better so you don't feel like you're sunk in one spot. I bought a couple of latex pillows to match, and the comfort is as good as it gets. My arthritic back feels better--less stiff in the morning--as long as I sleep on my back. The latex conforms perfectly to your contour. Soft and yet firm. The feeling is luxurious, and the price is unbeatable for the quality.
