I'm impressed with the quality of this bed. There was a slight chemical odor that took a few days to air out. The odor wasn't overwhelming and I did sleep on the mattress the first night I received it. I'm a side sleeper and prefer a softer mattress. I was surprised by how firm this mattress is. I think this bed would be perfect for me if the top layer was was a little thicker. I'm going to buy a mattress topper to make the bed softer. Overall, I'm satisfied with the quality of the bed and think it will last for years, but if you're a side sleeper and prefer a softer bed, you may have to add a mattress topper.
