It nice substantial thickness measures 10" to rim sewn then it's pretty lofty (eurotop) but it has that mildly shiny nylon covering on the top not soft cotton you see on more newer memory foam euro although it does contain some foam inside it has a nice gold thin filigree on the euro-top top and tufted just like this representation picture. You can see where the machine doing the gold ran off on one side and made three gold lines out of the design area, and one small area that's "snagged" but not yet a hole, it's more like a pulled area around 1/4" long not a biggie but probably not for full price retail market. People that are easily disappointed or picky I don't know if it will pass I just don't want to be hassled with extra dollars to send it back. It's a off whitish creme with the gold, thick pretty heavy weight and nice to sit on the edge doesn't easily bend or go out of shape feels quality and not much movement transfer especially when you put the mattress protector sheets ect. nice and comfy. NO off gassing smell at all that's why I chose the Serta it's the least of all the chemicals treated mattress now w/ Fireblocker fabric sewn in. Especially if you can't afford our three times + for an organic or wool mattress system. It wouldn't have been my first choice if I were to first see it in person but it will do nicely. I trust overstock and also the previous reviews helped tremendously. I will continue ordering from Overstock.
