Takes a while to fluff up, but once it does... Oh goodness! So comfortable! I already had a weighted blanket that I received for Christmas last year, but if you don't have one already I highly recommend getting one. Using the two in conjunction was indescribable! So relaxing and beautiful on my aching tired body. The foam has a bit of a chemical smell, but nothing too potent and it definitely dissipates after a few days. Overall very happy with my purchase and feel it is worth the price paid.
