Tried to be objective in my review, but I love the bed so much it's hard to do!
I began to consider sleeping on the floor with the dogs until I could sort out all these different types of mattress, because the old mattress was killing my back, (I have a history of back problems, btw,) when I stumbled onto this gem. I've had my old mattress for a little under 6 years. That thing was HORRIBLE. Every day waking up in pain was no fun! I KNEW I had to do SOMETHING quick so I went out on a limb and tried this Heaven sent mattress and box springs! There is absolutely an adjustment phase. It took me about a week sleeping in it for me to get used to it and I absolutely fell in LOVE! The biggest affect I've experienced with this mattress? My lower back pain.. my chronic lower back pain. IT'S GONE! Yes, I still have pain when I lift something I shouldn't or over exert myself. But the nagging pain of life is just gone. This thing that still baffles me is how my entire body feels supported no matter how I'm sleeping. I feel comfortable on my back, side and stomach. I can feel myself relaxing into the bed and I think that's why it has resolved my aches and pains. If for no other reason, this is why I love our bed! There is a plushy firmness which is a absolutely perfect combination. I haven't found it in anything else. This mattress will also keep you cool I've noticed, I'm not overly sure if it was designed to do so or not but hey, it's a total plus! I'm not complaining, just an added bonus. I would give this a perfect 10 out of 10 with absolutely NO CHANGES being made. I did notice that the fabric on the box spring was thin, as we were moving it there was a small rip. It doesn't affect the performance in any way, just a minor annoyance.
