Went downhill fast
This queen mattress feels great when we first get in it at night, but after a few hours I sink in and it becomes incredibly uncomfortable, causing back and hip pain. The sagging isn't evident before that. This started about 10 months after we got it. Not recommended. I really feel ripped off, as this was an expensive mattress.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Not good after 2 1/2 months
Sags In Middle
After 2 1/2 months, this mattress now sags in the middle. The only firm areas are about 8 inches around the edges. We are now trying to get our money back and a replacement with a different brand. Very disappointed as we paid $1400 for the foundation and mattress set.
