This isn't something you can use for everyday furniture. It isn't sturdy enough. The picture makes it look much more firm than it really is. You can't stand it against a wall. It'll just slump down and fold over. It'll conform to the shape of whatever you set it on, so I hope you're not using slats. I wanted to use this on my son's lower bunk bed, but I'm going to have to get something else. The cover is very thin material and it fits the mattress loosely. I opened it to see what the mattress was made of and I'm not even sure how to describe it. It's like the material version of particle board. Stuffing of all sorts and colors, a bit like a large rectangular ball of lint. I wouldn't even recommend it for a futon mattress because the thing is so flimsy I'm sure it'd wear out in a few months. I didn't expect much for this price, but even so I'm disappointed. I'm giving it two stars because it might be useful for something. Maybe for camping or as a temporary bed. Personally, I'd sooner buy an air mattress. This mattress is soft, that's about all I can say for it. I might keep it around for when the kids have sleepovers since it's slightly better than sleeping on the floor. Otherwise it's completely useless.
