To say that I did a lot of shopping around for a mattress would be an understatement. I searched high and low for a mattress that was within my budget and foam. I saw the ratings for this one and it had the other qualities I was looking for so I went ahead and bought it (Twin XL). Unpacking it was simple and it didn't take too long to decompress, which was great! The mattress is very comfortable and when my roommates or friends want to hang out, my bed is the hang out spot. I've even had a friend who was in the process of moving out of state ask the model of my mattress so they could have one of their own! Great mattress, I would (and do) absolutely recommend!
