As long as you make sure the bolts are tight (not overtightened!) this bed is very sturdy structurally. However, some of the slats aren't quite long enough to be wholly secure, so make sure you're careful when sitting on one end of the bed. I haven't yet been able to assemble the drawers because I was sent the wrong size cams, however I called the number for the manufacturer that is on the directions and they sent them out immediately. The pieces for the drawers are clearly very lightweight composite/pressed wood, but they seem like they'll be sturdy enough for storing my intimates and sundries like I intended. I wouldn't recommend attempting to store your jeans or something heavy in them though. Also I'd tighten the bed up again once a month or so.
