I bought this mattress as I have a very bad back, now it causes me so much pain I cannot wait to get rid of it. By the way this is the third mattress in the last five years,all made by Sealy. The first two mattress had similar problems. The first one had a spring come all the way through it. They do not give refunds so I had to take from Sealy stock. No more Sealy for me.

Own one and love it!
We bought this bed about 3 months ago from Mattress People and love it! We tried another brand first but it slept hot and was a little to hard. So we took it back and they recommended this one and it did the trick. We are sleeping great. Wake up every monring feeling fresh and ready to go!
