Although I prefer a firm mattress, there is not proper body support or comfort to this mattress . Although when you press down on it with your hand it has 'give', it feels like a board to sleep on. My previous mattress, a Beautyrest of the same price range was very comfortable for five years. I only changed it because I needed a Queen size for my space instead of a King. Very sorry I did not stay with the Beautyrest range and did not buy from a store with a comfort guarantee.
