It's really firm. Good quality but uncomfortable. There are reviews that this pad is to soft...my husband and I are average height and weight and we float on top of it on both sides??! Feels like our firm mattress and cant tell there is a pad on it. Loved the other pad I purchased from overstock "slumber solutions" but it fell apart after 6 months use and decided to try a better brand. I like soft pads, but for those that like firm pads, this would be a great choice. Nice but not comfy for my taste. Disappointing.
