We were in dire need of a new bed. I was skeptical of buying one online without trying it out first, but the reviews talked me into it. I'm so glad we did! This bed is wonderful! I was afraid it may be too firm for me because I like a softer feel, but it is perfect. I love it and I'm already telling everyone I know. P.S. The smell wasn't that bad and It did go away after a couple of days. Must have if you're on a budget.
