Okay, so I gave this product two stars as it appears to be quality. It has a nice cover and within 24 hours was almost at full expansion. I have not measured again, but I'm not going to quibble over half an inch. One end expanded slower than the other. It appears to be as advertised - a two inch memory foam over harder layers. It felt soft testing it, but I have not had a decent night, without pain, since. It is just rock hard with not enough cush in those two inches. I even added my older 2 inch memory foam topper on top of it, and find it almost impossible to sleep on. Worse than my old 20 year old spring mattress (which had dips in it - so that definitely wasn't viable). Just hard on the boney places and not enough give to prevent painful pressure points. I honestly don't know how to fix it - other similar mattresses (like one my mom purchased from a local store) are so much nicer. This is a regrettable purchase but what is to be done? I have started sleeping with a body pillow (so I can sleep on top of that) and I no longer sit in bed to read before going to sleep - so as few hours as possible. I can't get it back in a box to return it, and it really isn't defective - it's just miserable to sleep on, even with a topper - maybe one of those gel-infused memory foam toppers might help. So disappointing. I saw a lot of complaints about firmness at this price point - maybe it's better to spend a little more and see if you can find one with less people complaining about how hard it is - cuz, yep, they are right!
