Having had a Tempur mattress years ago, I was familiar with the product. However, since then, Tempur has certainly improved. Sitting, or lying on this mattress is an instantly enjoyable experience; moulding instantly to the contours of your body and then releasing when you step off back to the perfectly flat surface. It is extremely comfortable and I no longer have back pain on wakening. One of the big pluses, for me, which is different to my previous temper mattress, is the ease with which the cover can be removed for washing. Always a big bonus. The product is pricey; however, I believe it is money well spent.
