I bought this mattress to go on a tent trailer bed to give my hips some cushion. I'm a side sleeper. The mattress is great. It is the perfect height. The only drawback I had is that it rips/tears easily, so you have to handle very gently getting it into some protective covering. The smell is really very slight and goes away very quickly in my opinion. I would highly recommend. I purchased the Cal King and plan on getting the Full size too. Great price that you just can't beat elsewhere.
