I have a chronic back problems, due to a spinal condition, so it was important to get the right mattress. After plenty of research, and helped by generous credit arrangements, I was able to go for one a little more expensive than my initial budget - and, boy, was it worth it! I absolutely love this mattress! It took a week or two to get bedded in (so to speak), but once it had, it has been supremely comfortable ever since, and I've had it 2 months now. The springs are nice and firm, but with that extra bit of foam topping, it gives a soft, luxurious feel. Highly recommended!
