Before ordering this mattress, I read all of the reviews and felt confident in my choice. One thing that I was a bit concerned about was how firm several of them said the mattress was, because I was buying this to replace a very firm innerspring mattress, so I didn't want to exchange one too-firm mattress for another. But, the reviews all said that it was comfortable, so I took the chance. Now, I am a large fellow, standing 6'2" and weighing 270#, so I am writing this review from that perspective. Take it for what it's worth. As I said, many of the reviews stated that the mattress was somewhat firmer than they were expecting, but for me, that has absolutely not been the case. Perhaps if I weighed 120#, that might be the true, but as large as I am, the mattress gives way instantly. If I am sitting up in bed reading a book, then my tailbone is touching the bed's foundation. If sitting on the edge of the bed tying my shoes, the mattress is bottomed out. I'm not saying that the mattress isn't comfortable, because it is...very much so. But, it is much more plush than I was expecting. When lying down so that my weight is evenly distributed, I am comfortable and feel supported, just not as much as I would like. Honestly, I wish that I had gotten a mattress whose foam was a bit denser or would have spent the extra money on the Slumber Solutions 11" mattress with the extra layer of gel. But, for the price I paid and with FREE shipping, I still feel that this was an incredible deal and I have no real regrets. If you're a large person like I am, you might want to look elsewhere if you are in need of a truly supportive mattress, but I would say that this is sufficient. As for the odor, it was a little strong at first but quickly disappeared withing a day or two.
