First off, I just want to say that like many of the other reviewers here my husband and I were weary of purchasing a mattress, let alone a memory foam mattress, over the internet with no way to test it. We decided that since it was relatively cheap, we'd go ahead and try it. We could not be happier! This mattress is exactly as it's described. It is very, very comfortable. We did wait the 48 hours to let the bed air out like the product says to. We didn't want to take any chances on messing it up or ruining it. We never did get the full 14 inches, but we're less than a quarter inch from it, so it's no big deal. The mattress does come with a mattress cover, but it's not a traditional one. It's more like a couch cushion cover and I'm assuming it is zipped up somewhere on the side, but we could never find it to take it off, but it's quilted and very soft. It's softer than our sheets. We still went ahead and bought a waterproof mattress cover because we have two large dogs and anything could happen. Of course, everyone's opinion of "medium firm" differs, but for me it is still pretty darn firm. I sink into it, but not as much as I would like but it is okay because I do tend to have lower back pain as well as shoulder pain. Since sleeping on this mattress I can honestly say that my back and shoulder have not bothered me. I like to also sleep on my side and stomach (I am not a back sleeper) and it is wonderful. :-) My husband sleeps on all sides including his back and he loves it. Like most memory foam mattress' you do tend to get really warm. If you tend to have hot flashes, I would not recommend a memory foam mattress. However, since I get really cold a lot this is perfect for me. I stay warm and sleep like I have never slept before. It is so hard for me to actually get up in the morning and start my day. I am so glad we decided to purchase this mattress. It is wonderful and now my husband and I can sleep in the positions most comfortable to us without bumping or kneeing each other at night like we did in our old pillow top Queen.
