I ordered this based on the reviews I had read and am glad that I did. Yes, you need to air the mattress out for a day or two and maybe use some febreeze because there is a slight odor at first. However, it is so comfortable and turned our bed into one that we had thought about spending thousands on!! My husband and I haven't slept this good in ages! It also help that I can't feel him toss and turn as much! Great purchase and amazing comfort!
