After trying out the several thousand dollar beds at my local nation-wide big name mattress store, and listening to the salesman's spiel....I learned a lot about mattresses! But I was not going to spend 2 grand on a mattress, not even if they were willing to give me two years interest free financing. So I set out to create the same level of comfort for a fraction of the price, and believe I have succeeded. I purchased this mattress as my base layer, because it is somewhat firm and flip-able. Then I topped it with a couple layers of memory foam toppers, wrapped it all up in a mattress cover, and its like sleeping on a cloud - or one of those big dollar beds - for a quarter of the price. (After I total up all I spent on bed, pads, and cover) Have had it for about a month now, and I am completely satisfied. My husband and I sleep so soundly that we wake up in the same position we fell asleep in. We are both average size, and there is little to no motion transfer when one of us gets in or out, which is important since we work different shifts. You can even sit or sleep on the edge and it doesn't collapse. That all being said, if you intend to buy this and use it just as it is, be aware that it is quite firm, and is basically just a slab of foam with a thin covering on top. Nothing fancy, which to me is great since that fancy stuff is not seen and buttons or quilting provide an uneven sleep surface especially over time. I fully intend to buy several more for our kids and our vacation cabin. Highly recommend!
