I looooove this bed! I ordered it in soft along side with the foldable metal bed-frame from this site (a must if you cant fit a queen size box spring up the stair well like us) We had been sleeping on the same full sized mattress that we have had since our sophomore year in college and just couldn't take it anymore. We both love to read our nooks before bed and our elbows were constantly bumping into each other and the mattress itself was just done. We did order a memory foam topper so I knew what to sort of expect when I ordered this bed. I ordered soft because I've always been a pillow top person before discovering memory foam. It was still almost to hard for me in the first few weeks. I'm a side sleeper and would often wake up with a sore shoulder from the pressure but my back has never ever felt better. I would come home from work and just lay on the bed and my back would feel better. After several months this bed is perfect, much softer but gives just as much support. My dh said he walked across the bed a couple of times to try to soften it up, not sure if that actually did anything or not. I am beyond happy with the bed and would not change firmness level if I had to reorder it. The package it came in was huuuge, I couldn't believe a whole 14 queen size mattress was folded up in there. It comes rolled up and vacuum sealed in different layers of think plastic with cardboard surrounding it. I was able to move the mattress from the front porch into the mud room by myself (mid 20's, pretty good shape) but there is no way I could have gotten that upstairs to the bedroom by myself. We placed it on the metal bed frame before taking the last layer off so that we wouldn't have to worry about hoisting this thing onto the frame. We let it air out for 10 hrs before we slept on it. I couldn't really smell anything chemically but we have memory foam pillows and had a memory foam mattress topper so maybe we are just used to it. All in all it was one the best purchases I have made off of overstock, it took me like three months to finally bite the bullet because I hated the idea of spending so much money on a bed that I hadn't even touched but when we looked at similar beds in stores they three times the price. Just buy it! You wont regret it!
