THIS WASN'T MY FIRST RODEO! Due the EGG CRATE STYLE of this topper it is very soft, not firm. YOU SINK INTO THE ABYSS! I had a hard time trying to turn over in bed, it was like struggling to roll up the side of a hill. SO TIRED the next day! TRIED it ONE MORE night. Fought it until 1 am. when I ripped the sheets off the bed, yanked the sucker off the bed, put sheets and my old topper back on, only to realize (at 1 a.m..) the new deep pocket sheets I'd purchased for the new topper were now too big for the bed...oh yeah...AND I CAN'T RETURN THOSE EITHER!
