We've been thinking of buying a memory foam mattress only 2 months into using our plush pillowtop mattress. The price of this item was cheap enough for me to take the chance and it was worth every penny. This mattress is definitely not for those who want a little softer mattress. It is pretty firm that doesn't even make you feel like you are sinking in, which I like. My husband and I sleep better and more comfortable through the night with hardly moving at all.The smell was pretty bad even after a week but it is definitely going away.A wonderful bed especially at this price. I strongly recommend it.
