I was looking for a relatively soft, well-priced mattress, and I purchased this one based on the positive reviews. Unfortunately, the mattress is extremely low quality. While it is soft, it is also squishy- your hips and lower back sink deeply into the mattress while the rest of you remains on top, causing extreme back pain (and I'm pretty thin, so I imagine it would be even worse for someone heavier). I've never had back pain in my life, but after 2 weeks sleeping on this mattress I have woken up with horrible lower back pain every day. It was so bad that I just bought a new mattress entirely.
