After sleeping on select comfort for ten years and trying memory foam for a couple more, we needed something more supportive and firmer for our aging bones. This be is firm but not hard. I went to select comfort long ago because of pressure points and soreness, which the air mattress cured, but it did not have as long a life as it was supposed to, and the surface had become lumpy and uncomfortable. This bed is great because it does not cause pressure points, is uniformly comfortable across the surface, has a soft touch but great support, doesn't transfer motion, and doesn't sag when you sit on the edge. That last item is something that is very annoying about memory foam, as comfortable as it is. The last foam mattress I bought, which was supposed to be very firm, was so unsupportive at the edges that a foot of the bed on each side was unusable! The only drawback to this set is that it is so tall. I bought it with the low profile box spring, but the two of them are still 24" tall, coming up to my hip, which makes it easy to get out of bed but a challenge for my husband, who has a leg injury, to get in. We have a low, platform bed frame, so we are going to try it without the box spring for a while.otherwise, it is not at all hard, just firm and comfortable. We have been sleeping on it for about four months.
