Didn't know Firmer was better until I slept on one.

Well its been three nights on my new Nectar Mattress and here are my thoughts on the purchasing of a Queen bed with the sheet set. ORDER/DELIVERY:Ordered on the 9th and shipped on the 11th. FedEx first stated it would be delivered on the 13th but at 1800 tracking update changed it to the 16th...oh well. UNPACKING: It ways 85lbs and has no outside strap for moving it (Recommend they add one). Once unpacked it expanded immediately and to the stated 11ish inches. within 30 minutes the off-gassing started and its not a pleasant "new car" smell but a strong plasticy smell. Put the fan on it and opened a window and most of the odor was gone...still a slight smell but it could be the free pillows as well. COMFORT: The mattress is Super Firm (7/8 out of 10, if ten is cement). I have always favored a plush top and softness in a mattress and maybe that's why I have been consistently sore in the morning. At 5'9"/260 with arthritis in my shoulder sleep is often difficult. That has changed with this mattress as its both Firm and yet SOFT at the same time and I wake up refreshed versus the tired feeling of having woke up several times at nite tossing and turning as I have done in the past. VERDICT: I am happily impressed and if I hadn't gambled on this mattress I would still be tossing and turning and tired each morning and I still have a year left to see if this initial feeling changes...its a win-win for me.
