First of all, I'd like to say that I absolutely love the color of this mattress. It's a nice navy blue. This mattress is very comfortable. I like something that isn't too hard on my back but also something that isn't too mushy and soft. This is in between. There is good support. Even when I sit up right, it pushes my legs in a way so that my back is sitting straight and is not slouched. The mattress is quite thick and a little heavy. But my husband and I both managed to set it up on our bed frame. It gives you a firm feel. The mattress and the springboard both look very strong. I've had it for about a week and I can tell that it is definitely worth it. If after walking I get tired, then I can expect myself to lay down and relax on this mattress. I would highly recommend this mattress to everyone because it isn't too firm nor too plushy.
