It appeared to be fully "inflated" but by the next day, it was even thicker. It is beautiful! The quality of the mattress cover was A+.
I feel like a kitten curled up to mama cat in this bed. It alleviated MANY of my achy problems. You will NOT need any box springs for this because my bed lays on a hard platform with no box springs at all. I also have an electric mattress warmer on top of it followed by a thin mattress pad, next a 2 inch mattress topper then the sheets. I seriously wanted some comfort from my achy joints and relieve the pressure points on my other medical problems to prevent bed sores. I use the mattress warmer when it is chilly at night.
This mattress is GREAT. It arrived odor free and does not get hot nor cold. I also use my bed to sit up in to watch TV and it is super soft like an expensive sofa. I sleep better and feel better. When I am in pain, I can go lay down and feel wonderful again.
LATEX is the way to go. I did tons of research on mattresses before settling on this one. I am VERY happy with this mattress. As I write this review, I have slept on my bed every night for 8 months. Even if I trade my motorhome, my mattress is going with me!
People thought I was nuts to mailorder my mattress, but after doing my research, I settled on LATEX.
I was pleased with what I read about this company and took my chances with a prayer. I am super glad I did.
