Will be returning this model (King size) and exchanging it for a not-so-hard mattress. The bed is almost rock hard and barely any evidence that it has a soft-cushioned memory foam top. We had a Sleep Number bed for 14 years and wanted to find a high end comfortable replacement. This model is not the answer. In addition, this had a $3500 price tag...

Good at first but gets worse over time
Owned this mattress for about 6 years. After 4 my side developed a cavity where I slept. Lately I have not been able to sleep because it is EXTREMELY HOT. Once you sleep for a while and your body heat warms it up it is terrible. For the price it is not worth it.
