I have suffered from severe degenerative arthritis in my neck along with nerve damage, slipped discs, curvature of the spine and hip problems that have left me in an unbearable amount of pain when not taking heavy doses of pain killers. This is our 4th memory foam mattress purchase. This is to replace the spring mattress we have in our RV which is very uncomfortable for me. I have to say that sleeping on these memory foam mattresses has been a God send for me! I can no longer visit my in-laws because they insist on old fashioned spring mattresses. Not that I'm complaining about that! ;0) We received the mattress quickly after ordering it, placed it in the RV and it was to it's full height within 12 hours. The mattress is a dream to sleep on because now I can enjoy camping much more when I get an excellent night's sleep and not wake up in pain and unhappy. The odor was not bothersome at all even when we first opened the package - and to me that's a big deal because I have severe allergies and what my husband calls the nose of a bloodhound. All I smelled was new material smell that comes with all fabric purchases. Some things to consider when you're looking into switching to one of these mattresses; 1) you must have a supportive frame underneath this mattress (either a platform or a well made box mattress) or you will not have the physical support you would expect from any foam mattress; 2) you have to give it plenty of time to rise to the occasion before sleeping on it or it will not perform well at all for the life of the mattress; 3) smell? sure I suppose some people are more sensitive than others about it - consider purchasing a mattress protector or pad to cover it - not only will it reduce the smell some folks claim unbearable, but it will help your mattress last much longer than expected; 4) MOST IMPORTANTLY! you MUST MUST MUST give your body an appropriate amount of time to adjust to sleeping on a foam mattress when switching from other styles - it took me about a month before I was fully pain free sleeping every night - and for me this was a big deal breaker, if it didn't work it would HAVE to go back and obviously it has worked wonders for me. In the past I have had to go into the operating room to have a procedure called a root nerve block where they deaden the nerve endings in my neck where the pain from my arthritis is the worst. Since sleeping on memory foam mattresses I have not had to go back in for this procedure for over 4 years now, when this was usually a once yearly process for me. This mattress has made my life much much more comfortable and made me much happier. Do not give a poor review or any review hastily without giving the mattress a chance to do what it's meant to do - make you comfortable.
