I purchased my Beautyrest Black Evie II Luxury Firm Pillowtop Queen mattress about three years ago because we were purchased a new bedroom set and were also in dire need of a new mattress. My old mattress was a nightmare. It was old and had clearly not been made up to the best standards because, when we first got it it seemed fine, but after several years of use it had gotten so uncomfortable it was tough to get comfortable enough to fall asleep at night. I tested a number of mattresses prior to purchasing my Beautyrest Pillowtop, but that one seemed to be the most comfortable. The pillowtop part at the top, which is like an extra few inches of soft, fluffy, pillow-esque material, is really what sold me. I have not been disappointed. I have slept great on my mattress night after night since I have got my Beautyrest mattress. The padding has not depleted and the cushioning remains plush, yet firm enough to keep me comfortable.
