Comment:
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.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This model has now been replaced by the Vantage which should have similar characteristics which in my opinion is not good.<br />This mattress turned out to be way too firm. Surprised at CU's review stating it was less than firm. Make sure you save your receipts and don't miss the exchange period.

This mattress was replaced by Icomfort Vantage in 2014. So I was shopping at May 27th for Serta Icomfort Vantage full size plush mattress.<br />Narrow down to 3 stores.JC Penny on 60% off $1499. Sears 60% off $1247 plus $200 gift card. Boston Store 60% off $1247 + 2 free pillows. Play the stores against each other for best price.Sears will not negotiate prices. <br />The winner is Boston Store drop price by $200 bucks to $1047 + two free pillows and free delivery plus free removal of old mattress.Not bad.Delivery July 14th.
