I bought 2 of these beds, one for each of my boys (11 and 6). It fits great in their bunk beds, and they love it. If you like mushy mattresses you may want a topper, but my guys love the firmness. The mattress does not off gas and has a nice bamboo cover that is washable. I would wash on gentle because there is batting underneath. We had to clean one of the mattresses due to a midnight illness. I was worried about the mattress smelling and washing the cover, because of the batting, but I washed it on the handwash cycle and dried it on med heat for 35 min and it came out like new. The latex foam I wiped down with a pet cleaner, then let dry, and there was no smell or staining. I will make sure we have the mattress pad on next time because it would be so much easier to take care of. But it is good to know that it can be cleaned so much easier than a conventional mattress.
