Characterizing this bed as a plush pillow top is misleading. My last mattress was a traditional plush pillow top and like sleeping on an enveloping bed of down. The listing does not state that this mattress is a euro top and is far from what I'd consider plush. It is a little soft and spongey to sit on but hard and firm when lying down. Both my husband and I woke up with a headache, neck and back pain after our first night. I was also disappointed to find that the bed tag stated the date of manufacture was 2013, making this bed 9 years old!!
