Comment:
We bought this mattress on 5/24/13 during a big sale at Sears. Unfortunately the split box springs aren't sold as pairs. It was delivered with only half a box spring. There was the expected customer service struggle back and forth about honoring price and how the item was described online. Sears did resolve the issue to my satisfaction but it was a hassle. Final price for recommended split box spring and mattress was $1370 after discounts.<br />This is the bed in our master bedroom so it gets daily use. I am 6' 220lbs and my wife is tiny.<br />I will echo other reviewers, the mattress was good for about the first 2 weeks and now it's not great.<br />Essentially I believe the bed is designed to avoid a sagging middle where a couple might end up in a depression in the middle. This won't happen with this mattress because the middle is very firm and well reinforced.<br />HOWEVER, the area between the middle and each edge sags horribly...it almost has a hammock-like feel to me at this point with the middle and edge well supported but sagging in between.<br />Also the mattress is only 1-sided so you can't flip it over to get some additional relief. You can only rotate which isn't as effective.<br />We actually hate this mattress at this point but after spending more $1300+ dollars on it...<br />DO NOT BUY IT.

Comment:
We are both side sleepers, and this mattress is wonderful UNTIL you spend more than an hour on it. It's firm rating applies only to the first 20 minutes you spend on it in the show room. Afterwards we found we sunk into a 6-8 gutter which allowed our hips to drop far below a healthy spin sleeping angle and caused all kinds of back problems in the am.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
