This is an amazing mattress. Came in a large box on wheels about the size of a large luggage piece. Rolled it into the bedroom, pulled the compressed mattress onto the bed frame. Centered it on the bed and cut the ends of the plastic holding it in a compressed state. It poofed right up there in the middle of the bed frame and that was it! Super easy.... and I am a small person and I had no problems with putting it up. I let it fully expand for one day. Then I tried it out. It was very comfortable. Not too soft, not too firm. It is for a guest bedroom. I've had visitors try it out and they all felt it was very comfy. If a person wanted a little more loft they could use an inexpensive topper. Super price. No regrets.
