I installed this tub in my guest bath. It is deep enough that I can immerse myself fully in the water, save my head. It is very comfortable - the back is sloped where your head rests and cradles the neck perfectly. The Max Overflow means you can fill the tub within about 1 inch of the top, yet I've had no issues with water spilling out. I wish I could give this product 10 stars - it really is that good.
