Wow. Who knew that in one heavy cardboard box would be the most comfortable mattress ever. I had some doubts- the mattress is rolled up and covered by plastic which you must gently cut open to get the mattress out. Within 48 hours you go from having a flat mattress to a totally filled out and amazingly comfortable mattress. The mattress did have a slight odor to it upon opening so you will want to wait at least 48 hour or so to use (just like the instructions say). I took photos of the front and back of the mattress so you can see the beautiful pillow top. The mattress is very appealing to look it as well; very nice stitching and “embroidery” was used. I got this mattress for my daughter to use as its twin size but after trying it myself I am going to purchase a king size one. I just cannot believe how incredible this mattress is. One item to note is this is a very heavy mattress. I usually have no problem lifting a regular twin size mattress but again, this item is heavy so be careful. Also, be careful when you cut the plastic bag off- it is very easy to accidentally slice it!
