Very firm & comfortable.
on 13 January 2017
This mattress is incredibly firm. Feels very dense and hard - which if you have a bad back like me, is a very good thing.
I slept on a very squishy mattress for years, it was pretty thin and had a built-in memory foam topper. Quite recently I had occasion to spend the night in an independent hotel. In the hotel, I discovered that the mattress was really hard. I was worried about this, I thought it would make my back worse, but as it was late and there was no other option, I begrudgingly went to sleep.
The next day I woke up and to my amazement, I had no pain in my back at all.
This gave me the incentive to do a bit of research.
I discovered that sleeping on a firm surface can be very good for people with back pain. The stiffness gives support, and essentially holds your spine in place, instead of constantly moving around on a soft mattress.
Anyway, after spending the night in that little hotel I asked the manager where he got his mattress. He gave me the link to this item, which I placed an order for the next day.
Without a doubt, the most comfortable, sturdy, supportive mattress I have ever slept on. It could be twice the price and it would still be a bargain.
