Still Unsure...
 from Durham, NC,  Apr 30, 2012

I like a really firm mattress, and abhor that horrible squishy suffocating "memory" foam (why aren't they honest and just call it "quicksand foam"?) stuff. My wife's mattress needs are more moderate, but she felt from the online reviews that this mattress would meet both of our needs. We've been sleeping on it two weeks now, and it's still hard to tell. This is certainly not the totally positive experience I've had from other latex mattresses, but it's not bad either. It's not that the mattress isn't firm -- the foam is very thick and solid -- but it doesn't have any "spring back" to it. So it's firm, and you don't sink into it like that horrible quicksand memory foam, but then again it doesn't push back much against you either, like other latex mattresses I have owned or tried out. It also "telegraphs" movement notably more than other foam mattresses I have used, so that if one of us turns in bed, the other always feels it. (But maybe I just feel that way because we took too long to get rid of our last mattress, which eventually built up troughs for each of us!) And despite the firm solidity of this mattresss, the sides are a bit prone to compress when you swing in or out of bed. That said, it's still a firm mattress and I've generally been able to sleep on it pretty well. The jury is really still out, since I think it takes a month of sleeping on a mattress, alas, to know whether it was worth buying. But Overstock asked me for the review now, and if I don't do it now I'll forget to...
