Like sleeping on a cloud, but makes me sweat after so many minutes

Thanks for letting me write this review! My husband purchased this set used from another co-worker who was moving. This fellow bought it as new and as a guest bed. The manufacture year is 2008-Batesville, MS. It had never been used. I don't know what my husband paid for it,but I think it was $300.00 It was difficult getting used to the height. The mattress itself is nearly 13 inches deep. If we get older and have physical disabilities, we won't be able to get into this bed. It looks quality, both top and boxspring. It came with a five leg metal support frame. Main problem is after you lay down, within about ten minutes what feels oh so comfortable starts making you warm, and then too warm and this continues until you start sweating. My husband and I are average height, and this was our first Queen set, as we have been using a Regular set for over 15 years that is still in great condition, by the way. I ended up getting up and going in the other bedroom to sleep to cool off. You would need the bed to yourself to be able to roll over to a cool spot just to cool off. It doesn't matter whether it is hot summer or cold of winter, the foam euro top ruins this bed due to this heat sink factor. So, time to find a new bed that is flippable and without any memory foam or pillow top of any sort. This one is not flippable, even though we did flip it to be able to sleep on the no-foam top side. My husband couldn't do this as it was then too hard and he ended up going int he other bed to sleep. I almost wish I new how to do upholstery as to save money, I was seriolsy thinking of how to remove the topper that is sewn on. Maybe in the future they should make these removable. Serta needs to stick to making mattresses that can be flipped as this is part of the maintenance process. My older bed is in great condition because I flip it and then turn it every two or three months as is directed on the label that came with it.
