Would not buy one..... Well, maybe for the dog
IMO, memory foam is the biggest con perpetrated against man since the moon landing. Above is exactly why: after 6 months, the only thing the mattress remembers is where you sleep... you know this because of the big sag in the spot where you lay every night. What a racket! I was shopping for a new bed... the sales guy had me lay down on this mattress with the 3" memory foam topper... it was very comfy in the store, but months later, there's a ditch where I sleep. I rotate it, so the ditch moves to me lower body and I get a little support on my upper body, but it doesnt last long. I'm just biding my time until I can buy a real mattress and get rid of this POC.
So many woots, so little time.

I bought a memory foam mattress a few years ago, from Wal-Mart. Thing was hard as a brick, very uncomfortable to sleep on. Sure, after half an hour you eventually sink in, but my hips hurt for that first half hour, and if I rolled over, the process had to start all over again. Plus, memory foam RETAINS ALL HEAT, so it's like sleeping on a heating pad turned on high.
Finally I bought a 4" latex foam topper, and now I sleep like a baby, best bed I've ever had.
