We got this mattress to replace the old, Mattress my daughter was using.it was her dad so 18 yr old mattress. When we received the mattress it was in a pretty good size box nothing huge so I was confused but when I opened it I realized it was vacuum sealed. When I cut a slit into the plastic it started rising into its shape. Daughter is very pleased with the comfort level, and I am pleased with the quality. I was also pleased there was no strange smell which can sometimes accompany bedding items. My daughter comments on the fact that it is a very bouncy bed. her bed is already high so I didn't want a super thick mattress and make it even higher, I was nervous about getting a thinner one but this mattress is comfy I probably wouldn't recommend for adult unless u like form. For the cost and comfort level, I am calling this a wonderful kids mattress at a great price. I think it would be easy to add some foam to the top and provide even more comfort. I definitely would recommend to friends and family.
