This mattress is VERY FIRM! I wish the description made that more clear. The quality of construction appears to be good (I've only owned this for a few months). I just wish I knew when ordering so I could make another choice.
I’m going to start by stating that the mattress is beautifully made and had no smell when I received it. I’m a side sleeper and was hoping to get back pain relief. The mattress was way too firm for me. I did not receive any back pain relief, and woke up sore every morning. The main reason I purchased this mattress was to avoid harmful chemicals in a mattress, and it’s the only reason I kept it. I’m purchasing a mattress topper in hopes for softer support.
I have a bad back and require a firm mattress. My mattresses usually last a year or so (from a $3000.00 tempurpedic, memory foam, sleep number, etc...). I am really familiar with mattresses and do a whole lot of research until I find one. I searched and searched on Amazon reading 100's of reviews and decided on this mattress. I opened it up and let it rise for longer than the suggested amount of time and measured it to make sure it was fully expanded before sleeping on it. First night: I ended up in the spare room...hubby ended up on the couch. Both of us with severe back pain before midnight. I don't believe it was defective, but I can't understand where the good reviews come from. If you're in need of a good supportive mattress that you'll be happy with...keep looking!
We had this mattress for about 6 months, very happy about it.
i am very pleased with this purchase. it was hard to find a good reasonably-priced firm mattress without fiberglass. This mattress (8" Natural Latex Twin) feels firm enough for me (but I wouldnt call it extra firm) and it is comfortable for sleeping on the side. The matress cover is pleasant to touch and looks nice.
