Before I purchased this mattress I did a ton of research and reviewed all types and prices of memory foam mattresses and what helped the most was the reviews on overstock, which is why I am leaving a feedback. This mattress is fabulous. My husband and I do not find it to be hot at all, as I know some reviewers thought, and there was hardly any smell. We think for the price and just overall, this is absolutely the best and would highly, highly recommend. This is a must if you are at all considering a memory foam mattress, and if you are not, you should.
