I wanted to buy a firm mattress with a pillowtop for support, and plush comfort. This bed is hard like a rock. It also makes noises when I turn. Feels and sounds like the pillowtop filled with straw. I purchased this mattress 2 years ago because of the pocketed coil technology. So when my hubby gets up in the morning or turns, I won’t wake up. For that, this bed works perfectly. Recently I had to purchase a 4 in mattress topper for comfort. Since I’m sleeping on this bed, my shoulders are killing me. Can’t reach behind my back without wining. I can’t reach behind my back period. Can’t lift up my arms high up. I never had this problem before. I don’t recommend this mattress to anyone unless you only sleeping on your back or stomach. Definitely not for side sleepers.
