Yes, you will feel it. I have a regular 8" mattress with 6" of foam on top, no box spring, and I feel the metal. It's not uncomfortable like sleeping on a cot or a sofa bed, but it does add a great deal of firmness to the bed. With only a 6" foam mattress, it might not be comfortable at all. The box spring adds give and springiness, which this platform cannot add. If you love a firm bed, this will give you that. If you want more softness and give, get a box spring. You can still put it on top of this. We got it to fit inside our antique bed frame, which was no longer strong enough to hold the mattress set and us, and for that job, it's perfect.
