Tall, heavy folks - DON'T HESITATE
on January 5, 2012
This goes only for the 5" thick version of this - AND IT WAS 5" (Haven't tried any of the other thicknesses)
I chose this to review for my first Amazon review (long-time customer) because I'm so enthusiastic about this chunk 'o foam!
If you're a tall, big man with back troubles like me - don't listen to the namby pamby's who gave it 1 star.
I got it, and like one of the 4 star reviewers, you just wait a couple of days without putting any load on it or sniffing at it,
and you'll have a REAL NICE, FIRM, back-relieving mattress! Follow instructions-
Don't use a razor knife to open it- foam will bias on you.
The CUT of the mattress wasn't bad, and the size is a GENEROUS QUEEN I ordered - seemed waaay too small first, now it's almost too big.
The smell certainly WASN'T like cat pee, more woody than pee-like (after airing out)
NOW I put a couple of 3" hard pink foam boards underneath and zipped it up into a zippered queen BOX SPRING cover (cheaper, without the nasty, crinkly vinyl liner)
I am in HEAVEN now - I would describe it as extra-firm, therapeutic.
For $100 bucks, when I was CRUSHING those inexpensive queens repeatedly, this is a BARGAIN.
I KNOW it will last at least a year. I'm 400lbs.
BYW: If there are two people in it- it's firm enough you certainly WON'T get a hill between OR on either side of you- THAT'S
how firm it is - don't think yellow, soft foam, it'll mush in - this WON'T - excellent quality!
