I've loved my previous latex mattress for too many years! Wanting similar, I thought the Sleeping Duck would be a great transition. It didn't take us anytime to get to use it (although we did the hard yards when we originally bought the latex). The SD is super supportive, very yummy and a great feature for us to each have our own comfort preferences. My husband is a back sleeper and loves a firm mattress, while I need the softer feel for my shoulders. This is perfect. After deciding I would like to have a firmer feel under my hips, the staff made it very easy for me to get a new configuration to suit my whole body. I also love that I can wash the covers of each element when I need to. Would highly recommend SD.
