This is a replacement for an older, thicker, and much more expensive memory foam mattress. This mattress is thinner and lighter but somehow manages to feel both softer and more supportive than our last one. Our old mattress is in great shape and I like the extra-firm feeling but my wife wanted something softer. This mattress is definitely more soft and plush feeling. It responds quickly when you sit or lay on it (unlike the memory foam which only softens up after it warms up) and feels more springy though it doesn't bounce. The edge supports are great for sitting on the edge of the bed and not sinking in. It feels just as supportive as our firm memory foam mattress which was a surprise to me. After several nights sleeping on this mattress, my wife reports she can sleep on her stomach again (hasn't been able to do that since our old old pillowtop got replaced with the memory foam). She's happier with a softer feeling mattress and I have been happily surprised to feel totally supported in the lower back despite also feeling that instant cushiness when you first lay down. I also think this mattress is not as "hot" and "sweaty" feeling than our last foam mattress-I presume from the latex layer. In summary, it's a great mattress with the right balance of support and cushion. You get the "feel" and breathability of the latex top without paying the bug bucks for a 100% latex mattress.
