We were talked into this mattress by the salesman and told that although we got a firm one, it would become more comfortable with time. We have had it now for almost a year and it is still too stiff and gives me back aches. My husband needs a more stiff mattress though so it is great for him and he loves it. All of my family loves it too and thinks it is super amazing but I just cant get over it being too firm for me. I think if we had gotten a less firm one it would have been a perfect mattress.
