We needed to replace our mattress, but having slept on innerspring mattresses for almost 50 years, we were tired of tossing and turning.
I spent a lot of time online researching memory foam mattresses and reading reviews, but purchasing one unseen was most unnerving.
I chose the Novosbed based on the reviews, the trial period and their promise to provide an additional layer if too firm or too soft.
It came in a box which appeared much too small for a king sized mattress. I'm very glad that we opened the box in the bedroom! Once it unfolded and unrolled itself, it was indeed a king.
We unpacked the mattress very early in the day so that it could assume its shape before bedtime. I had read reviews which indicated that foam mattresses needed a period for "off-gassing". I have a very sensitive nose and I noticed no unpleasant odor.
The first night was very comfortable. We slept better than we had in a long, long time. After having slept on the Novosbed for a month now, I can say without reservation that it's the most comfortable bed we've ever owned. Since it conforms itself to our body contours, it provides great support. No tossing and turning anymore.
Both my husband and I are slender. We are extremely pleased with the medium firmness and have no need for the free additional layer.
I cannot comment on the Novosbed foundation, as we continued to use the foundation from our previous mattress.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
