Very Springy; Not like Memory Foam
The first thing we noticed about this mattress (other than the straps on the side that were amazing for moving it) was that it is very springy. You sit on it and you bounce. I'd say it is fairly firm, but it does not contour to your shape at all. You can also feel the other person's movement more so than you would on a regular memory foam mattress. Also, the fabric of the mattress is very textured, and I could feel it through our sheets while sleeping on it. My husband didn't notice it, but it bothered me. However, the mattress was vastly improved by the addition of a good mattress pad. Ultimately, I think it'll work fine for our guest bedroom, and I'm hoping it'll last a while, but I prefer a full memory foam to the memory foam + springs. If I had never had full memory foam though, this mattress would definitely be a winner.
