I bought this mattress to replace a VERY old spring mattress I had for about 8 years. I used a regular foam mattress topper with that old mattress, and it felt like I was sleeping on clouds. I have heard so many great things about memory foam mattresses and how they are so much better for the back, so I felt like it was time to trade in my old mattress combo for one high quality memory foam mattress. I read the reviews on this mattress and was really impressed with what everyone had to say and how well priced it was! I was aware that the mattress might have a "memory foam odor" or be a bit firm, but was not expecting it to be rock hard. It didn't have a really noticeable smell like many other reviewers noted - I just let it lay flat on my condo floor for a few hours then placed it on the bed. I slept on it the same night and haven't had any issues with the smell. The mattress was, and still is, REALLY firm. I mean, shockingly firm. After being out of town and sleeping on a luxuriously comfortable W Hotel bed for a week, I came home and literally fell off the bed when I tried to get in because I was shocked at how hard it was! I also haven't really noticed the mattress molding to my body when I lay down or press down on it... I have had a lot of back pain and woken up with a sore neck every day because of this mattress. I've had friends visit and stay here with me, and they also agreed that the mattress is way too firm. I have down/feather pillows, quilts and 800 thread count sheets - but none of those feel comfortable when paired with this mattress. I can't exactly ship it back to Overstock - that's just way too costly and difficult, so I'm stuck with it. I just ordered a 5" feather bed from here and hoping that will help out! Any other suggestions welcome!
