When we got the Slumber Solutions Choose Your Comfort 14-inch Queen-size Gel Memory Foam Mattress it came rolled up into a cylinder and wrapped in a weather proof cover, looking much like the best sleeping bag ever. For the choose your comfort level we elected to take the Medium level, and it was definitely a great decision. The mattress is comfortable, solid, and contours perfectly to the curves of my body as well as to my husbands. While there isn't a ton of movement transfer to the other party in bed, there can be some depending on where you place your limbs for support while turning over and that sort of thing. After we unpacked the bed and took off the restrictive plastic, the bed immediately shot up to full thickness. In fact, we took a nap on it no less than 30 minutes after we first unwrapped it. The glory of that delicious first nap was remarkable, especially compared to our old inner-spring model. This thing is just divine. While I've read several reviews about a bad smell, ours only had the slightest smell of new foam and it dissipated almost immediately. I couldn't even smell it during our soon occurring nap! What great value for a fantastic comfort!
