Well, I have to first say that I have a lot of long-term damage to my legs/buttocks due to being a transcriptionist and I also work my body hard as a dance fitness instructor. So I've been dealing with excruciating pain for a while now. I say that because although I still don't sleep 100% comfortably, I know it's not the bed. ON THE OTHER HAND, I'm actually SLEEPING which is something that I stopped doing a long, long time ago because of the pain of the pressure points against the bed. That's gone now. The bed is a little hard for me (and we have a 2-inch foam topper that we were already using) but again, It's hard to say if that's residual discomfort or because of the actual mattress. Also, I no longer do what I call the "old people shuffle" in the morning. I'm not bent and pained and crooked when I wake up and my pain is greatly lessened. Also, I actually feel rested and refreshed in the morning - every morning - both of which I gave up on a long, long time ago. Also, I'm never aware when he gets up or moves around or anything anymore, which I used to be because I was awake and because our old bed moved like crazy whenever either of us moved. This bed has no motion transfer whatsoever. The best thing is that I was so worried the bed wouldn't work for my husband. We bought it to alleviate pain for me and I was worried it would just shift the discomfort to him instead of me. But he loves the bed and has thanked me more than once for researching and finding it and getting it. He says he's sleeping better and never feels any soreness in the mornings anymore. Incidentally, we did go into a store and try different foam beds before deciding to purchase and I have to say we were surprised that we were more comfortable on Serta models than we were on the Tempurpedic models. I see in other reviews that people mention that the bed is made by Sleep Innovations but that's common practice in practically every industry that someone else is the manufacturer of a branded product. I believe that Serta would not have put their name on it if it wasn't up to snuff and the quality bears that out for me. So yes, I totally think this is a great buy and it was an added bonus that it was at a great, affordable price. We're happy and the pain is slowly fading away!
