We have been fans of European style latex mattresses for about 20 years. Because they have no memory, they maintain their shape, do not move when a sleeping partner moves and provide a superb sleep surface. It is difficult to find them here in the States for less than $1500- 2000, even for a full size, which is what we need. The last one we purchased was in 1999 and ordered directly from the factory. At $800, we considered it a bargain. Although the mattress was still in great shape, the pillow top had become depressed in places due to our penchant for reading in bed. After doing a good bit or research, and reading other O review, we decided to give this one a try. It was manufactured after our order was placed, yet still arrived very quickly. As soon as it was taken out of the compression bag, it almost immediately expanded to its full 10 inches. We left it in another room for a couple of days to outgas and have been sleeping on it ever since. Although dense, it was easy for us to move and position on the foundation and our deep pocket sheets fit beautifully. We prefer a very firm bed and so are delighted with this one. Like a memory foam, it does "loosen up" after a bit and soon has a bit more give while still retaining its firmness. I agree with other reviewers who said a topper is a good investment for those who prefer a softer surface without compromising support. Since the pillow top was our "problem" area, we decided to try it au naturel and are very pleased. All together a great choice at a great price and with great service.
