will it fit my bedroom?

Good question. Getting out the tape measure is a good place to start. Once you’ve double-checked the dimensions, ask yourself a few questions. Will there be enough room to walk around the bed? Will your bedside drawers still open? Will the bedroom door open freely? Will you be able to open the doors of your wardrobe or en-suite bathroom? Is there an easy flow of movement around the room?

I bought this as i’d previously had another memory foam mattress which was getting old , so I thought i’d replace it with something similar.
within one month the foam had collapsed and there was a distinct trough like dip in the centre of the bed. It was hard and quite uncomfortable to sleep on, as I kept rolling into the centre of the bed. The outside edges seemed to be quite hard and raised up, as opposed to the soft centre areas.

Its quite a slim mattress and even though I’m not very heavy or tall, it was surprising how quickly the mattress degraded in terms of use. I weigh a light 64Kg and I’m 5, 10 tall, and yet within a month the foam had collapsed.

But from the start the foam had hard lumps and hollow areas, even before use. I’m sure the NASA technology didn’t have the same issues.
