Good but not great.

Upon receipt of our Alexander Signature mattress, we were a bit overwhelmed by the memory foam odor emanating from the mattress. We gave it a few days to air out before sleeping on it but even after a few days the odor was still very strong, we could smell the odor just walking into the bedroom. We then tried taking all the bedding off the mattress and setting up a fan to blow on the mattress for three days. After the second week (with the bedding removed in the daytime), a very noticeable odor still remains but it has dissipated to about 15% of what it was when we received it. When contacting Nest bedding to ask about the odor, they suggested we leave the mattress in the garage or outside to air out, something I refuse to do, the mattress will get dirty or what if it rains? Seemed like a misinformed suggestion. Maybe we are more sensitive to the odor than many other buyers, but we had hoped the odor would have been much less noticeable, yet after two weeks the odor is still there. We are not sure we will be keeping this mattress, beside the odor, it sleeps firmer that we had hoped. The top layer is soft but it seems as though the top layer is easily compressed and I am right down to a much firmer layer of foam which I wish was a less firm support layer. For sleeping on one's back it's probably okay, but not that comfortable to lay on my side or stomach.
