what a heaven-sent mattress. i was too lazy to buy a mattress at the local store, strap it to the roof of my 03 Honda and carry it up 3 floors to my apartment, Amazon shipped this directly to my door.
-The only smell i noticed was, i assume, the polyurethane, it lasted about 30min and wasn't a strong odor. The mattress opened up immediately to the 8", so I feel sorry for the people who had these complaints.. anyway, i've been sleeping on the floor for the past week and boy o boy did i feel excruciating pain from that after resting on this mattress, it was difficult, no, impossible to get up after lying down on this.
-This mattress is semi-firm to firm (like on scale of 0 being water bed and 10 being carpeted floor, id give it a 6.75), which is perfect for 110# me, personally i dont like squishy mattresses, they cause more issues, but this one actually eased my back pain.
-It weighs what feels like 100# when expanded, but it states 40# - im not very strong, it's heavy, so make sure when you open it that it's in the right place.
-the 8" Full is perfect for 5'7" me, i'm living in luxury now.
im super glad i chose this one, even at ~$170 it's worth it. i'll give an update in a year or so to see how it holds up.
After using this mattress for two semesters, it's still brand new. I haven't used a box spring either (bc im a broke college student), it's been on the floor, there's no permanent stress or anything. I would assume this mattress would last a lifetime.
Every time I've slept over at friends, family, boyfriends houses, I've always wanted to come back to this bed, my spine and intestines crave this mattress, my internal organs don't hurt in the morning at all, unlike when I sleep on someone else's bed. As a side sleeper with bony hips, it is ultimate comfort. This has been the best purchase I have ever made on Amazon if that tells you anything.
Since I am moving and can't take with, I will definitely be buying this again in a couple months.. maybe I'll upgrade to queen size.
Hope this review has helped.
