One reviewer’s enthusiasm could only be expressed in all caps: “I GUESS I AM SO OLD THAT NOTHING COULD MAKE ME FEEL PRETTY AGAIN AND SOOOO COMFORTABLE! WHAT A BLESSING IT WAS. I LOOKED GREAT AND FELT ABLE TO MOVE WITHOUT FEELING LIKE I WAS BEING STUFFED INTO SOMETHING UNCOMFORTABLE. IT IS SO LIGHT AND EASY TO GET INTO.”
