This mattress is very comfortable and if you have issues with hard mattresses in relation to your back, or get a back ache from mattresses that are too soft or even too hard, as most people do, then this mattress may be a good option for you.The support is there right to the edge of the mattress. The support is firm but the padding is sufficient that you dont get any pressure pains anywhere.The best measure of any mattress is that you wake up after a good nights sleep and don't even think about the mattress. In my opinion, if you think about the mattress, then the mattress is obviously an issue.Well made, quality natural materials, no need to flip over, just rotate periodically. Firm support. Adequate tufting over the pocket springs, hand sewn edging. We love it !
