too bad it never achieved full 76/80 in. size9/27/2011
as the title says, it never grew to full size..! a (with apologies) midget matress.. it arrives compressed in a cardboard carton, wrapped in plastic. you must unpack it and allow a few days for it to expand.. OK, i did so and it is still 78/76 inches. too small for my bedframe and king sheets.. NOW what, i can't recompress it..? so, as is said: "you pays your money and takes your chances"..
Not the size is was supposed to be7/29/2011
I received the mattress two days ago and unpacked it to let it fill out because it was compressed in a way that could have only been done by some machine. I thought it would un-compress and get to the shape it should be. Well its been two days and it is not what it should be in either dimension. If I knew this was going to happen I would not have bought it. I don't know if I will try to return it at this point because there is no way to compress it back down to ship it back. Real disappointed.
