Sadly, just OK

Once upon a time, I slept like a corpse. I would crawl into bed, fall asleep, and sleep so deeply, I used to say I didn't sleep at night, I died. Then my old mattress finally aged too much and I was tossing and turning and sore all the time. I came to Overstock for one reason - mattress delivery charges are absolutely ridiculous, and I wondered if Overstock would deliver it for their normal $2.95. And wouldn't you know, they DO! AWESOME. So, many reviews later, I decided on this one, with visions of my parent's pillow top mattress dancing in my head. (Their guest bed is so heavenly, I never want to leave it.) The reviews on this sounded like it would be similar. Alas, it wasn't. Now, don't get me wrong - this is a high quality mattress. I couldn't be happier about the condition it arrived in, the delivery, as well as the price. This mattress will last for many years to come. Also, just to note (not a complaint) the mattress is really high, so I actually have to hop a bit to get in to bed. (My Maltipoo still has issues jumping up on it sometimes, and forget my Shih Tzu - he can't make the leap on his own.) HOWEVER, it was not the heavenly cloud I was hoping for. It's really quite firm (which is what I wanted), but I chose firm with plush topping hoping it would make it a cushion-y firm, which it does not. I am a stomach sleeper and, despite the plush topping, I can feel the pressure from the springs in my stomach. I toss and turn even more than I did in my horrible old mattress. It's so bad, I often sleep on the couch just to avoid it. I have to be drop-dead-exhausted to fall asleep in this thing, otherwise, I just keep myself awake flipping around all the time. I'm now here shopping for a memory foam topper to avoid having to buy another new mattress. This may not be so bad for back sleepers - I can't speak to that - but for me, it just wasn't comfortable.
