We have had this mattress for 6 months now. I wanted to be certain if I gave a review, it was after I had this mattress for a little while. I did read all of the reviews on here and was apprehensive about buying a mattress online. My husband and I were replacing our mattress that was well over 10 years old. Our old mattress left me crippled in the morning... it needed replaced. A mattress to me is an important purchase. You spend 30% of your life sleeping!! We went to local stores and tried out everything from pillow tops to memory foam to latex. While I was talking to a salesman about the benefits of a latex bed, my husband actually fell asleep on the latex we were looking at (I knew this was the bed for us) . We went home and purchased this bed immediately. The mattress arrived UPS. My husband unwrapped it and laid it out. Because of others reviews, I anticipated an odor, there wasnt one. The mattress was a little firm at first and we did purchase (also thru Overstock) a 2" memory foam topper with contour pillows. If I had to do this all over again, I would in a heartbeat. Its a great bed and we saved a ton of money. I no longer wake up crippled in the mornings :) I love my bed. Dont hesitate. Its a fantastic purchase.
