We have struggled with getting a comfortable nights sleep for some time. The pillowtop mattresses are too soft for me. We bought an expensive "firm" mattress thinking that this would give me the support I needed for my back but this proved to be very uncomfortable. We tried a memory foam topper (not an expensive one) but this didn't help much. I did a little research and heard good reviews on latex. This topper is great. It gives us the softness we need to relieve pressure points but not too soft. I'm so glad we got it instead of spending money on another expensive mattress.
