Amazingly comfortable and such a good price. My son tried it and loved it too, so he’s ordered his own. I would definitely recommend.View More Reviews
Fast delivery and easy to set up. My partner and I have found the Avatar to be really comfortable, and we are both sleeping much better than we were.
Was a bit skeptical about ordering this bed, but am very pleasantly surprised. I’ve only had it for just over a week and am really loving it. I sleep on my side and am finding it very comfortable and easy on my joints.
Great value, fast delivery!
Perfect, love it!
Took a few nights to get used to, but like this matress. Quick delivery.
Order processed and delivered when promised. Easy. Been sleeping well on it so far.
Mattress very good. Good price.
This mattress is good, just the right firmness for me. Can’t go past this price.
Perfect for me, we luv it!
I purchased this mattress on Wednesday and it was delivered that Friday, couldn’t believe how fast and simple! Really good mattress and great price.
Like this mattress, price good + delivery also
I just had to share with you how much we love this mattress, from being so easy to set up, to the silver “sparkles” in the cover that my little girls thought were pretty amazing, but of course hands down the best feature is we have had two nights now of amazing sleep and my husband and I both agree we could never go back to our old Spring mattress! The quality is amazing, I will be recommending you guys to everyone!
After using an alternate bed in a box mattress this mattress is amazing, It is firm enough that i am supported but soft enough that I'm super comfortable. My lower back pain is a thing of the past 99.9% of the time. I have been on this mattress for over 4 months and have not looked back.
After reading reviews on these mattresses for 12 months and not really believing half the reviews where real I was really undecided. In the end we really had to just bite the bullet and get one. I based my pick on a choice review and figured if we hate it we can send it back. Well we've had it for about a month now and really love it. I am 75kg and m y husband if 110kg and there is not rolling into each other or disturbance when when gets in or out of the bed. We are both fairly hot sleepers and have not noticed any heat difference from our old standard mattress. We are both sleeping better and finding it really comfortable and our only complaint is having to get out of it in the morning. I have lots of allergies, one of which is with smells like chemicals and perfumes and I was concerned about a few who said it smelled. I was able to sleep in it from night one without any real smell or side effects. I cant comment on the longevity since it has only been a month but so far we are really happy with our purchase as is our daughter and partner who also purchased one at the same time.
I’ve had lower back pain, especially after waking, for many years. After sleeping on a firm foam mattress, one night, I realised the new “bed in a box” may be what I needed. The avatar is amazing value and feels on the firmer side. I’ve had it for a month and have woken feeling refreshed, with no back pain, every morning. There was a smell, but that reduced over the first week and I don’t notice it now. I highly recommend it for those that suffer from lower back pain.
The mattress is quite comfortable but for my taste and my back condition, the body sinks into it too much, even though it's advertised as firm. It is worth noting - DO NOT BELIEVE IN TRIAL PERIOD - You will not get your money back. You might be able to exchange for another, more expensive mattress from bedsonline. So better choose wisely.
My body feels rested and free of any pain every morning. The mattress is firm and supportive. The only problem was DHL delivery service. The mattress got lost and the tracking number DHL gave us was not valid. But it was worth waiting for.
I've had this mattress for a few weeks and find it very comfortable. I like a firm mattress and was worried that it would not be firm enough for me as it's marketed as Medium Firm but it's just right. If you prefer something less firm then this might not be the mattress for you.
I looked into mattresses under $1000.00 after I had severe trauma from my 4 year old Ikea mattress.Im reasonably fit as I ride & do yoga. Im not big on coil or metal particularly with all the wi fi & blue tooth devices in my home.I like firm & this is just that.The bed does need a cotton or natural fibre mattress protector as it becomes quite warm with the summer months.Great Value overall.Good night sleep.
Wake up refreshed and with less aches and pains. Feels like a cloud, it is so comfortable. Would definitely recommend, it cushions your body and bounces back ready for the next dreamy sleep time.
It took some getting used to, as the feel of the mattress is so completely different from a spring mattress. I find it comfortable now, although maybe ever so slightly too firm. (I wake up in the morning with the mattress honeycomb pattern imprinted on my skin) I love that I can't feel when my husband is tossing and turning in the middle of the night and definitely means a better sleep for me every night. Our only complaint is that shipping took 5 weeks, and we had to follow up regarding the shipment almost every day for the last 2 weeks before we finally received it. I'd be reluctant to buy anything from here again, just because of the long shipping time, and the fact that it seemed like the shipment had been forgotten about in the warehouse, then lost on the way to the freight forwarding company, AND then arrived with a broken box (although the mattress was fine). Customer service was helpful though, and Beverley responded quickly each time I emailed for updates on the status of the order.
Have had the Avatar for around a month now..it's great. Very comfortable .I would highly recommend it. Im waking up with less aches and pains, sleeping more soundly and no complaints from my partner either
I would love to review this product. However it is nearly a month since I ordered it and it has yet to arrive. I live in outer Melbourne, so 2 3 days was expected, but this is very disappointing. I have made enquiries, but no delivery date has been forthcoming.
Great reasonable price mattress I recommend who like firm mattress to purchase this!!!!!! Have slept wonderful since purchase of the mattress. Especially have change five mattress in the past 7 years for the perfect mattress
The mattress is fine - not great but it's fine. However, the "next day delivery" claim is a lie. It took over a week to receive our mattress and the complaints team were rude and did not care about the delay. We were offered complimentary pillows as an apology, but even those we had to follow up several times to have them delivered another 2 weeks later. I would not recommend this company or this product.
It is a definitely firm mattress to very firm and quite a bit of smells from the foam. But it is worth the money to consider and looks like a good quality one
Our new mattress is great. We sre both sleeping so much better than we were. Many thanks to Avatar and their speedy delivery. My back is already feeling the difference
It is the most comfortable mattress ever I have purchased. I would like to purchase another one when I need one more mattress in the future. The best foam mattress ever.
I owned their 1st mattress when bedsonline still had retail store in Ozzie wide, and it felt just perfect for me, eventhough the mattress cover not as good compare to other brand and loose too, however recently i bought another similar queen size for my daughter but quite disappointed, i could feel their quality and less comfy and definitely not the same when you lie on my avatar mattress. JUST BEWARE OF THEIR TRIAL PERIOD. Read carefully before buy. You still need to pay for exchange and when avatar is on promo, it is not cover for replacement. Pretty much is as NO RETURN.
This Kip Set double bed mattress is not too soft and not too firm, just right for me! (I'm 75 kg) Minimal partner disturbance compared to the spring mattress. Couldn't smell any terrible chemical scent before and after fitting 100% bamboo covers for pillows & mattress.When you wake up you will find that your mattress have moulded around the natural contours of your body.It will feel unusual when coming from spring mattresses, so keep it a little longer so your body can adjust to it.View More Reviews
The mattress has definitely helped with my sore back ! The mattress is very comfortable and doesn't move too much when my partner moves around. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
After purchasing KIP SET for our new home it sat in the garage in its box for three weeks while our renovations were finalised. The day came when we got to move in, un-box our KIP SET and put our worries at bay. The last comment I made to my husband when we went to sleep was fingers crossed we have a good night sleep.... and that we did!!! The bed was amazingly comfortable, and hubby was stoked at the fact each time I tossed and turned or climbed in and out of bed to get baby settled he didn't feel a thing!! we love our KIP SET soooo much. Update: 2months on....Our investment in the KIPSET has been the best yet...! I have had three other nights on different mattresses over the last two months & boy oh boy do you notice the difference!! I honestly feel that when we are next on holidays I will have to pack our mattress because where ever we go it will be inferior to our KIPSET
Already tried 3 other popular brand mattresses in the box. Kip Set is the best mattress so far. Still considering if it's the most suitable match for my adjustable massage bed frame, due to its light weight. Affordable, reasonably prices mattress, for the high quality of materials used. Good support, perfectly moulds around the body's pressure points. Extremely comfortable bed to sleep on or just relax and watch tv. Happy to recommend to anyone seeking a softer feel mattress.
It is a little daunting buying a mattress online given you can't physically feel it. I was intrigued by the new era of startup mattress companies selling their products through channels such as Instagram. Whilst there are a few around, I chose to go with Kip Set as it was from Forty Winks Sleepmaker - long time mattress experts. They have the history and knowledge & delivered a great product! The mattress is extremely comfortable. At first a little firm but over time you get used to it. I'm glad I didn't pay twice as much for a spring mattress. It's so easy to get carried away in what the companies say you need, when really all you need is this mattress.
I love it! It is soo comfortable. Honestly the best mattress ever! My old mattress was 3 times the amount of my kipset and can not compare at all! I also love my pillow too.
