Customers don't always feel good about these mattresses. Some report feeling comfortable in their mattress, but there are others that have complaints. One of these may work for you, but it makes it difficult to figure out. Do additional research below to learn from customers if one of these will work for you.
Some customers report that these mattresses don't provide the kind of support they expect. Though some enjoy the quality of these mattresses, if your body type is different than average, review the mattress specifications before purchasing.
For those that are excited about getting good edge support, some report that these mattresses don't have the best edge support.
Unfortunately, these mattresse are not always rated well for durability. While some have experienced good performance, others found that quicker break down than others. Make sure to take a look at the specifications, warranty, and reviews before buying.
Some sleepers are comfortable with their new beds, but others were not as satisfied with how the mattress made them feel. Despite those that had a good experience, overall these mattresses have lower than average satisfaction from customers. Read on for more specifics if you are interested in buying.
A supportive mattress that properly cradles the body is what you need for a better night's sleep. If your bed doesn't prop you up, you simply won't sleep as well as those that have a mattress that aligns the spine. Overall, most customers resonate with the supportiveness from these mattresses, but some had issues with them.
Most will find these mattresses to be fine for edge support, which is well received by those that like to lay close to the edge of the mattress. Those that have bigger frames may still experience some sagging along the edges.
Having a mattress that lasts is important to all of us, but some brands care more about selling their products than focus on long term quality. The good thing is that these mattreses are above average when it comes to longevity. Most folks will continue to be happy about their mattress after 5 years, but some heavier people may discover that their mattress breaks down faster than average.
We've only had this mattress for a couple of months now so I can't yet speak to its longevity, but it seems extremely durable (we bought a king size and it's SUPER heavy). This is hands down the most comfortable mattress I've ever owned. It also does not seem to sleep hot, which is nice. It is definitely quite "cushy", but not overly so. My husband tends to prefer a firm mattress but loves this one. I couldn't be happier with it. Disclaimer- you will not want to get out of bed in the morning!!View More Reviews
Love it. Amazing how it is delivered so small yet grows to full size once opened. Definetely a firm sleeping mattress.
I went into a well known mattress store and fell in love with a temperpedic bed. However I couldnt justify spending four thousand dollars on a mattress. I started doing research and came across this bed and after further research on the brand we narrowed it down to this mattress. We love it! Great price and the bed is better than the one I fell in love with originally.
I had purchased the Visco Heir ET, but found it to be to firm, the ET is a fine mattress, I just found when I first would lay on it it seemed soft and then it would compress and then it felt to firm. It also would compress and then it seemed I was in this pocket which made it a little difficult to turn over which I do a lot. I contacted Jeff at Mattressezzz and they were just great. They made all the arrangements to have the mattress picked up and after discussing it I decided on the Revolution mattress. Jeff kept in contact with me, sent me all the information I needed to return the other mattress and had the Revolution sent out which was delivered quickly. He did not even charge my card until I had gotten the mattress. I also ordered the sheets and pillows. I waited to write a review for about 3 weeks because it takes time to adjust to a new mattress. MY old mattress was an innerspring that was more than 20 years old so I really needed a new one. I would wake up every day with so much pain in my back and hips I had to get out of bed even if I had wanted to rest longer. I did have a topper on that mattress and I have put it on this mattress just to make is even softer and to protect the mattress. I absolutely love this mattress, it is soft but firm and I do not sink down in it so much that I am in a pocket and have difficulty turning over. I wake in the morning and just want to lay there and not get up and the pain in my back and hips is gone. The micro fiber sheets are so comfortable and fit the bed well. This company is just super, probably the best customer service I have ever received. Jeff even called after I had the mattress 2 weeks to be sure I was happy with it. I might suggest if you have any concerns before you order that you give them a call, they are so helpful and straightforward that they can help you make the right decision the first time. This mattress is comparable to the best Tempur Pedic that sells for over $8,000 so if you can afford this mattress I would recommend it. If the Tempur-Pedic is more comfortable I do not think I would want it, I would never get out of bed. Give yourself some time to adjust to it, when I first got it I was not sure I liked it, but now I love, love, love this mattress and the people at Mattressezzz were wonderful.
We've had this mattress for about a year and half now. I wanted to give it some time before I left a review. We LOVE this mattress. It has helped with my husband's back problems while he sleeps and it's just overall so comfortable. The only thing we regret is not uprising to a king size, which we may do in a few years and hand this one down to my son.
I have slept on very high end mattress's and have become very used to the way they feel. I have had 'PILLOW-TOP'S', I've had the SERTA Sleeper Captiva I used for 16 years - it was a very good mattress. My wife and I were ready for a new one, and the lady at store kept talking about the memory foam mattress's and how great they were, her husband and she sleep so much better now...yadda, yadda, yadda...my wife and I were sitting on the Vesco Revolution mattress, and it just felt very different than the 'springyness' we were used to...it didn't bounce...it felt weird.
Because the sales lady recommended it so much and we were not ready to go shop 4 different stores, we bought the memory foam Vesco Revolution...we are now in week 3 of sleeping on it. IT IS AWESOME...ONE OF THE BEST BUYS I EVER MADE! My wife is happy because she doesn't feel me move through the night like she used to. I'm happy because i really feel I reach another whole level of sleep...great buy!
Spent close to 2k for a king size mattress. Slept great for the first year. Year two however we found the foam to be worn and less firm and resilliant. Soon, my wife and I were sleeping in our own seperate bowls. It got so bad that we would wake up numerous times a night because our limbs were numb. Warranty wasn't recognized because it was not a factory defect but normal wear. So here I am, 2 years into a new mattress and I have to buy another one. These are cheaper than most, but you get what you pay for. I'll never do business with bed boss again.
I love this mattress!! I have pretty bad scoliosis and this bed is so perfect for it! It is supportive and yet so soft! It took a few nights to get used to it, but I LOVE IT. I feel like it stays warmer than spring mattresses, which is a plus for me! I also had surgery on my neck and have an artificial disc around my C5, and this bed along with a memory foam/latex pillow have been heaven for me! I have had the bed for over a year now and I still love it! I don't feel like there are any imprints in it at all!
I bought a Bed Boss from Furniture Solutions on July 25th, 2016, and I'm sorry to report that I am thoroughly disappointed in this mattress. I wake up every morning in such severe pain, that I can't put on my own socks. When I lie down on the mattress, I feel the small of my back curve in an unsupported fashion - like I'm lying in a hammock. I don't know how it felt comfortable on the showroom floor for 15 minutes when I tried it out in person prior to my purchase.
I slept on a TempurPedic for 10 years from 2006-2016, so I'm no stranger to "memory foam" - I only replaced it when it reached the end of it's usable life. I wish I had not strayed from the major namebrand. The marketing claim that this bed and TempurPedic's GrandBed are similar in everything except price - is simply false.
I spent a lot of time and effort doing research prior to my $1,250 purchase, and I'm just thoroughly disappointed that I'm now going to spend $2,000-$3,000 with TempurPedic to avoid becoming disabled (I know that sounds like hyperbole, but it's pretty accurate to describe not being able to bend at the waist to put on your own socks & shoes). $2,000-$3,000 on top of my $1,250 purchase from Bed Boss under 6 months ago.
To my friends searching for memory foam mattresses, I'm advising them to a) stick with TempuPedic or b) Select from one of the dozens of alternatives that stand behind their products with 90- or 100-night Comfort Guarantees (e.g. Casper)
I'm uploading pictures to prove that I actually own this product. I have no connection or affiliation with TempurPedic or any mattress/bedding store or manufacturer.
The manufacturer ended up contacting me, but no resolution was ever reached. I ended up selling the mattress on Craigslist for $100, losing over $1,100 in this experience.
I was thoroughly impressed with Visco Revolution, it surpassed all expectations. It's a high quality product for a great price. The bamboo infusion makes all the difference. Definitely a good choice.
I am happy to say that I am enjoying my new mattress. It arrived on November 20, 2012 and it is a great improvement from my old spring mattress. I was experiencing lower back and hip pain with my old mattress, now with my new mattress my pain has been relieved. I will keep you all posted on the comfort over the months to come.
It is now April 6, 2013 and I have been enjoying my mattress plenty! It is just as comfortable as I imagined, but I wish it would not get so hot. I am hot-natured and this may be part of the reason. I think if you are cold-natured you will be in heaven with a mattress like this. I may be looking into getting a cooling comforter of some sort.
we have been using this mattress for last 4 days and this has been the best mattress we have purchased so far in our life. one of the main reason we were looking in the market for a new mattress was due to my back problems and waking up unrested. i have not felt this good since sleeping on this mattress. my back does not heart in the morning and i have not woken up in the middle of the night due to the same. feel well rested now in the morning when i wake up! This is a great value for money.
Terrible! I get worse sleep here than I did on a 10 year old inner spring. If this is how all memory foam is then it should be trashed. Takes an hour to get to sleep and wake up all through the night. Do not buy this.
Update October 2nd. Bed is still bad. I'm going back to inner spring. Once you wear in a spot good luck sleeping anywhere around it bc u will just roll back. A good example is go outside and sleep with half ur body on the curb and half in the street. It's about that good.
Amazing mattresses at an affordable price!
Kristen is amazingly helpful and a great representation of the store. The mattresses cannot be beat for comfort and value.
I've had mine for almost 2 years. At first it was amazing. I'd never slept better. Within the first year I was sleeping in a crater. Trying to get up in the mornings looks much like a turtle rolled on its back trying to get turned over. My whole body hurts when I wake up!! I'd leave zero stars if I could!
I first purchased a BedBoss mattress because it was the most comfortable mattress in an entire store. It was priced well so I took it home. I had the best sleep for more than 5 years before it started sagging. I eventually had to stop sleeping on it. Recently, I contacted the company and they promptly sent me a replacement and all I had to pay was shipping. I've had nothing but positive experiences with the company and they have outstanding customer service.
Bought it about 3 years ago and we are shopping again for a new mattress now. We are waking up with back aches and unfortunately just don't think the bedboss is for us anymore. Had high hopes it would last us longer.....
My boyfriend had the visco crown pt twin and we both loved it! Best mattress I’ve ever slept on. Now we’re just trying to find it in a queen. We don’t love the prices we’re seeing but it’s such a good mattress. Keeping our eyes out for sales!
Worst company ever. I ordered an adjustable base from them. Received confirmation, a tracking number, and notice of shipment. Two days later I get an email saying they miscounted their inventory and they didn’t even have the frame. Strange since it had supposedly already shipped. They said they refunded me. I have yet to receive my money. They were kind enough to suggest I purchase another frame that was four times the cost of the original. when I asked if they would give a discount since they made the mistake, I was told that wasn’t an option because of the price difference. So I should pay it, but they won’t. Ridiculous.
No pressure shopping experience, Amazing prices and great products!
Great mattresses and customer service. I can’t say enough about how great the service is. We will soon have 2 of their mattresses and will definitely purchase from here in the future.
I highly recommend the Bed Boss. Their customer service is outstanding, Ms Tod and the whole team delivered fabulous service when I needed some accessories to refit my adjustable base to a new bed frame. The process took several days which was not an issue since I was not pressed for time and I was kept well informed along the way....their communication was also quite superior. Thank you; you all rock!!
I can't put into words the level of professionalism I experienced at Bed Boss. I will never shop anywhere other than Bed Boss for my sleeping needs. Absolutely exceptional experience I will share with all my friends and family. Thank you so much Ben!
My husband and I bought a mattress 2 yrs ago. The worse sleeping mattress we owned. I had constant body aches. We bought a Bed Boss a week ago and its the best sleep we've had in 2 yrs. I am so glad the dealer had me to test it. After laying on it 30 minutes, I knew that was the mattress I would buy. I highly recommend it.
I ordered my Heir mattress from Brooke last week and it came in yesterday! Best night of sleep I have had in a long time. I am very impressed with the quick shipping and delivery, great customer service, and of course the mattress! I'll be spreading the word to all of my friends and family!
The Bed Boss has some of the most awesome mattresses I've ever seen! They put so much care and quality into how they're all made, and they last so long! Five stars for days!!!
I have had mine for about 3 years....we sleep in 2 huge craters. I have 3 pillows that go from below hips to shoulder to attempt to fill on my side plus a 4 inch other brand memory topper. I would love to hear from the company!
I've had a king and a full Bed Boss mattress for four years and love them. We sleep better than ever and don't have back and neck pains when we wake up the next day. The pillows we have are wonderful too. Thank You
We have had our Bed Boss for about a week now and have never slept better! Both my husband and I have back and neck issues and wake up every morning now completely rested.
A couple of years ago I suffered from a bulging disk. Since then I haven't been able to sleep on my back.....until now. The mattress from Bed Boss is the ONLY mattress that I can sleep on all night.
Love my Bed Boss its a Visco Heir ET and its the best Investment I ever made.I have slept on it for 4 years and it still feels as good as when I Purchased it new .Thanks for making a Great Mattress
Just ordered our 2nd set of bed boss contour pillows. Thank you andrea for being sweet and helping me with my order. These pillows are the BEST around. Cant beat them!!!!
Quality sleep products, great value and a wonderful support staff make The Bed Boss the perfect match for retailers who care about their customers!
My wife and I have the Hybrid Sleep and LOVE IT! We have recommended it to several of our friends who have also purchased it and love it as well. We now have all Bed Boss pillows too. Have never slept better and we miss our Bed Boss mattress every time we travel... can't wait to get home and sleep in our bed.
I owned a tempurpedic...was not very Happy with it..ended up purchasing a BEDBOSS heir et and four years later I'm still in love with it. Best bed at the MOST AFFORDABLE price out there folks.
Scott is amazing and wonderful to deal with. Bedboss is a good co. and has all the bed needs you could want.
Been sleeping on my boss for a couple years now. .omg..I love it..so glad I found ur products. .yes I have pillow to ..best bed iv ever slept in..I hate when I travel cuz I can't sleep in another bed..lol..customer for life. .
The best customer service in the industry hands down!
Promt Customer Service, quick resolution of my concerns, by Scott, and Steve.
I think everyone should get one of these, they arrive in a tall but moderate size box, After unboxing you cut the plastic cover and it starts to expand to its normal size, I find it VERY comfortable and it keeps me from getting too hot at night. I am sleeping better than at anytime in my 67 years!!!!View More Reviews
This is the best mattress I have ever slept on. I know some people give it a bad rating saying it is too firm, but it really is only about personal preference. I have slept on hard beds and this is not one of them. Yes it is firm, you don't feel like you are sleeping on a soft pillow top but I don't think that is best for your back anyway. I had back surgery last year and this mattress addresses issues that no other mattress has, regarding the many issues my back requires. It take a night or two to get used to the difference but once you stick with it, you will be happy you transitioned.
As of today, this mattress is a huge improvement over our last one. It is quite tall and doesn't need a box spring (we have it on a wood platform). The mattress is firm, but given a few minutes, you sink into it a bit, which really makes it quite comfortable to sleep on at night. It doesn't keep cool quite to the extent as I was hoping. It's pretty humid here in the warm Florida Panhandle, but I wasn't expecting miracles. Good value overall for the price tag.
I have owned this mattress for over 1 year and love it. I bought this as a toddler bed when we were transitioning my son from the crib to a bed. This bed is tall enough that you don't need a frame for it. For the time being, we have the mattress on the floor with no frame and don't have to worry if my son falls off the bed. The bed is comfortable for him and adults. I often find myself sleeping in this bed as my son sometimes needs dad with him to go back to sleep. I love this bed and its just as good as my very expensive beauty rest mattress.
Pretty firm. I loved it, my wife hated it. If your looking for a mattress that's super soft like a plush DO NOT buy this. For a firm mattress this thing is incredible.
This mattress may very well be the firmest mattress that I have ever had the displeasure of sleeping on. If you want a firm mattress it would be a great buy. If you are looking for plush you should go ahead and purchase a mattress topper as well.
This is our first memory foam mattress purchase. For the last 13 years we have been sleeping on a pillow top mattress, but that old mattress was getting pretty lumpy and old and I couldn't find the exact same brand to replace it. So we started mattress shopping..... ugh how I hate mattress shopping! After a couple of weeks of research, we settled on this particular mattress (in king size). Delivery was prompt and setup was painless. Open the box, follow the directions to carefully cut away the protective compression packaging and enjoy as your mattress takes shape in front of your eyes. We opened ours in the morning and slept on the mattress that night. It was a different experience at first and frankly couldn't decide whether we had made a good decision or bad. This mattress is really firm, especially if you put the Dreamaway Mattress Protector on it. We have used the mattress for a few months now and I think I'm finally getting used to it. I'm not an especially great sleeper any way, so it is hard for me to claim that I'm sleeping any better or any worse than before. Thankfully the lumps are gone :) and I can move around the bed at night without disturbing the Mrs. We had a really nice bed set, so I saved the box spring and frame and put the new memory foam mattress on top of that. Considering the price paid, ease of setup and pain free ordering / delivery process from Amazon I wouldn't say that I'm unhappy with the purchase. But for me it wasn't the paradigm shifting sleep experience that I was hoping for. One thing I want to stress is that this mattress is very firm, so if you're looking for a softer experience you should consider something else. We haven't slept on it in the summer yet, but so far the mattress temperature is comfortable. As for reports of chemical odors on memory foam mattresses....... this one was minor and gone before we went to sleep on it the first night.
This is an awesome bed! It takes a little getting used to, but once you are, it's great! Definitely recommend two people to unpackage and place the bed, though I did manage by myself, it wasn't the most comfortable experience. My previous foam bed had a lot of off-gassing. With this bed, unless you put your nose right in it, you really can't smell anything.
This is a really good quality mattress. After a year of use there is no dip or sag. Also the corners do not "bend" when you sit on them. I deducted a star because, at first the mattress was just too firm
for us. We were wondering if we had to return this.Luckily we tried a 2" topper from costco ($99) and that did the trick. Now we have a firm base with a plush top. Best of both worlds !
Love the mattress, quality product. I previously slept on a cheap mattress with a nice 4" memory foam pad that was fairly soft, so this is a little firm for me although i'm sleeping well on it. Why I gave it 4 stars is that the listing says medium/soft feel but its no where near soft. Its more medium/firm. I'm going to purchase the extra plush bamboo mattress pad just to soften up a bit because a slightly firm mattress is probably better for me anyway.
I read a lot of reviews before ordering this and I was very concerned about the potential odor from the foam. Thankfully even when I first cut open the bag it comes in there was no odor at all... literally no odor (even with face pressed against the foam). So I guess that pretty much takes care of that.
As for any crease from shipping, it seemed to disappear in about 15 minutes. I did follow the instructions and I even went above and beyond by leaving it sit for 2 days before I slept on it. I don't see or feel any creases or any indication that it was shipped folded.
As for the firmness, it is a bit firm and softens up as you lay on it. It took a week to get used to it but I am very pleased with it now.
I am so happy I didn't waste $3,000 - $5000 on a Tempurpedic at the furniture store. :)
Wish I would have bought one years ago. We both work midnights and when we finally get to crawl in and get situated " lights out " I don't even move. This matress is much cheaper than the pillow top we replaced. I'm going to replace our two childrens mattresses with these. I highly recommend them. No more back pain...that alone is worth it. Excellent product for the money. I don't overheat either, very rested when I wake up.
This mattress is comparable to the Famous Brand memory foam mattress I have used at a friends home. However, this cost half the price. The only drawback is finding bedding that fits the thickness of the mattress...
My other mattress was a spring with box frames. It was over 15 years old and sagging. I think I used it for way too long beyond its usefulness. I should have replaced it years ago. I think the old mattress ruined my back as well. I could not sleep soundly for any longer than 4 hours before my back would start hurting. Then I would just shift and turn the rest of the night. Needless to say I have not slept well in at least 6 months to a year, if not longer. My back only hurt when I would sleep so I could almost definitely attribute it to a deteriorating spring mattress. I decided to make the switch to a foam mattress to try something new. This mattress appears to be well constructed in the materials used and the mattress covering. It is a firm mattress for sure. I have had it for about a week and am still getting used to it. My back still gives me trouble at night but it is markedly better and improving. I think my back is just now resetting itself from years of terrible posture during sleep. The firmness was a concern because I am a side sleeper at times. I have found this mattress not to be an issue for me though. I went with this one because the reviews I saw said it was not as firm as the one with the gel-foam layer and the gel-foam layer one was not recommended by side-sleepers because it is firmer. This was a great purchase in my opinion. My wife likes it and I am getting used to it, and my sleep is improving. The other concern was the heat that some people had mentioned. I have found zero issues with heat transfer. I don't even notice it. The mattress expanded almost immediately after removing it from the bag and was ready in just a few hours really. We slept on it that night.
this is the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on. i had previously purchased one in a full size so when I upgraded my living arrangements i got a king size. the mattress is firm but soft on top and very supportive. get deep pocket sheets for it. you wont be disappointed.
It did take me a long time to shop around to finally make the decision. I shopped for over a year for a new mattress and with my experience with my last mattress I needed to be sure before I spent so much money not to be satisfied. On my last purchase I spent over $2500.00 on a Seally posterpedic job. I thought I was shopping smart and purchased a close out model. I figured since I was shopping at a reputable dealer and purchased a product with excellent reputation I would be happy. I was far from that 6 months later, the mattress did not show any signs of wear. I was able to set a 8 foot level across the mattress with only about a 1/2" of variance across the surface which is with in specification. Even though the product was within the manufactures limits the product did not provide much support, I am 160 pounds at 5'9" and my wife is all of 110 pounds at 5'6". My point is we are physically fit active people and the product had us waking up multiple times through out the nigh and when we had to wake up we were often feeling tired and sore from sleeping on this product. We talked to the dealer to try to warranty the product, since the product was with in the specification and operating within the set of limitations set by the factory I was stuck with it. Well at $2500.00 at 6months old I was shocked that a product that seemed to be a great product at first was failing us so quickly. So with all that said I have had this new mattress for going on 3 weeks now and I must say it has alleviated all the complaints I have described about my previous mattress, I believe that it is too soon to effectively rate this product accurately with out seeing if I will have a problem because of having the previous product only 6 months and being so unhappy overall, having a mattress for 18 months and trying to get a replacement for a year I was happy to get a good night sleep. I did read all of the manufactures guidelines on how to care for it properly and they all are clear and reasonable to get the most out of it. This product sleeps comfortably in relation to temperature, on my conventional innerspring mattress I was a hot sleeper and was constantly throwing the covers off in the middle of the night then waking up freezing cold. With this product I reach my rem sleep very quickly and sleep all the way through the night waking up crisp and refreshed ready to conquer the day! This product supports me and I wake up with no pain or sore muscles. I have had friends that have purchased this same mattress and are still satisfied, I am truly hopping we have the same experience, a warranty doesn't mean a thing if the guidelines protect the manufacture. Not sure about this warranty by reading it I would have to say it may not be much of a warranty, In the event you want to make a claim you have to pay to ship and return ship to you so that they can inspect the product. This leaves me to only guess that if I had to request a warranty replacement it will not be an easy transaction.
I am in love. This is the best thing since sliced bread. My husband was not interested
In buying a mattress on line. It came there was no smell like some viewers mentioned.
It came early which was great. I am telling everyone what a great experience this was.
PS I have never written a review before.
Very comfortable. Came vacuum sealed and expanded to full size very quickly. Not too firm. Does seem to be a little warmer than other mattresses. Can't beat the price though. Make sure you buy extra deep fitted sheets to fit.
We really love this bed despite what everyone is saying here. Yes the bed is firm, but it's a cushiony firm.
Let me describe: the bed has great support. Coming from a nice expensive pillowtop spring bed, this bed is firm. Something that we were looking for after 5 years on that pillowtop. This bed has healed my bad back too!
Feels like sleeping on a Twinkie!!
Great value....comfortable...no-cons for me... It's amAzing that it was delivered in such a small box compared to the expanded size...just open the box , let it expand and air out....( smells like baking cookie crust ...for a few days; )
I carried it up 4 flights of stairs by myself...I sometimes carry my guitar amps (fender-tube) up and down ,,, so the 90+ lbs weight of the bed wasn't an issue... It's just bulky... I weigh over 200lbs and over 6'0 ft... Just to put things in perspective...so if you are out of shape ...pay someone to move it....once it expands.. It's much easier to move around... Just bulky...oh yeah... My place is hot all year long....haven't closest all my windows in 18 years .. The temperature of the bed is balanced... Not hot , not cold....
Even when it over 90 deg in the house...I don't know about durability , but time will tell....
its been a couple of weeks now.. i unboxed it and it unfolded in a couple of hours.. so i put sheets on and slept on it the first night.
I have been having soreness and stiffness for a while now from my former "innerspring" mattress.. and it was a very expensive one.. with 2000 coils etc. but my body was screaming at me every morning!!
So I thought i would give this mattress a try becasue there were so many good comments.
I love it! Yes, the first night it was firm, kinda scary.. but it softens up to you in little bit and then you dont feel "sunk" but I did feel supported. Its been a couple weeks now and I am going to put a 1 inch memory foam topper for a softer pillow top effect, but i do love the level of support and NO MOTION from your partner.. I am sometimes a restless sleeper, getting up and such, and my partner feels NOTHING. I will never go back to an innerspring mattress.. this mattress is the best i have ever had and it didnt break the budget.
Very happy with purchase. Bed is as described. I have slept well on this mattress from night 1. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new mattress. There was no smell and I slept on it 12 hours after opening.
This is our first memory foam mattress, and beyond what everyone else has said (positive), we are completely in love with this item. We replaced a sinkhole mattress (heh) with this, and the price was too good to pass up (I was in the process of ordering a queen when the web page refreshed and showed me the king mattress on sale for less than the queen!).
It IS a firm mattress, but only until your body starts to warm up the foam a bit, then you sink (but not too much!) slightly and suddenly it's heaven. Very impressed, considering it feels exactly the same as the $4500 Tempurpedic model I took a nap on in a local store.
Everyone will like a different mattress, but my advice is to give this a try. It might take a night or five to get completely used to it (bonus if you have a memory foam pillow to go with it!), but it is worth every penny and then some. You simply cannot put a price on a good night's sleep, no matter how cliche that saying is ;).
The adjustment from a spring based mattress to memory foam took some getting used to (more so for the kids, who were perplexed when jumping on it didn't provide the same gleeful launch)...but, 3 months in and the wife and I love this mattress. Price point was hard to beat and we haven't seen any issues with the mattress losing its shape. Very pleased.
Wanted to try a memory foam mattress but didn't like the high price of the name brand sold in most retail stores. Found this online for considerably less and opted for the slight cost increase of the 14in version. Totally happy with this mattress! Slight smell from gases of foam a couple of days that has dissipated and nothing but a great nights sleep for me and my wife!
Firm but very comfortable. Its been a week and we have both slept well for a change. Bed arrived on time and was easy to unpack and set up. Others have stated you have to wait 72 hours after you unpack this to sleep on it, I think it was about 5 hours for us and everything was perfectly fine. I would not hesitate to buy this again.
Love this from the very first night. The only problem is you have to stay clear from the edge as it sinks a little. So thick. We could have bought the less thick as this is a solid mattress - extremely comfortable and firm support.
I have shoulder and back problems. The bed has been good for my back, but terrible for my shoulders. My wife loves the bed so I give it four stars.
I really like this mattress. It is firm and at first I figured perhaps it may be a little to firm for my body. I felt this way for the past 8 months of owning it (even though I've been sleeping fine the whole time) until I went on vacation with my girlfriend to Atlantic City. After staying in a hotel on a softer bed I could definitely feel a difference when waking up. I;m only 31 years old but I could tell my joints were a bet more stiff than I had gotten used to. Overall even though I never owned the cheaper version of this be I'm still very satisfied with my purchase.
WAY too firm. Ended up with neck and back pain.
I've waited 6 months to write a review because I really wanted to have some good perspective. I tend to like a soft mattress and fall asleep best on my side. The first few months were rough; this is a firm mattress and I woke up in pain when I slept on my side, still do. This thing gets even firmer when the temp drops and living in an attic in VT the temp gets into the low 60s at night. With all that said, this is the best mattress I've ever had and look forward to every night's sleep. My wife likes a firmer mattress and had lots of hip pain from our old bed and now she has none. This mattress is best for back sleepers and I have learned to appreciate that and a firmer mattress. I love how it conforms to my body and I'm not disturbed when my night owl wife or restless dog move around. Well worth the money and it should soften up a little over the years. Is not hot at all like some reviews say, but if you need a soft bed look elsewhere or go to a store where you can try it out first.
I've had this mattress for about 10 months now and am fairly pleased with it. It was easy to deploy (impressive to watch once you open the bag). Make sure you have it arranged properly before cutting the bag open. Though a little heavy I was able to deploy my king size mattress alone. It did smell a little for a couple of days but was not intolerable. The price is pretty good and I'm pleased I bought it. I've recommended it to family and friends. I'd actually like it a little firmer but some seem to think it is pretty firm. My only complaint, common to all memory foam mattresses, is that I can't move very well on it. I'm used to my old mattress having a grippable edge to help me adjust but this one has a soft edge with nothing to easily grip. Still pretty pleased with it though. Recommended.
I cannot say enough about this mattress. I had a crappy innerspring that made my neck and back hurt, and I was constantly tossing and turning. I had looked at memory foam mattresses in person and decided that was the way I wanted to go, but thousands of dollars, really? Surely there must be a more economical alternative. My budget was $1000 for a queen mattress. I wanted something less firm, but not too soft. I came across this line and this 14-inch memory foam mattress was the softest of the bunch. And for $600? Ordered! 2 days later I was sleeping like a baby. No more back pain, no more neck pain, no more waking up 10 times every night.
The mattress had no smell right out of the box. The only cons I can think of are that it's extremely heavy and it might be too warm for some people. But I'd buy this mattress over and over again anyway.
As others have said, this mattress is very firm. It will get softer after 24-48 hours, but having tried many memory foam mattresses of this type, it is quite firm. I agree with the description that this mattress is ideal for side sleepers and provides ample support.
Quite a bit stiffer than one would expect from a mattress categorized as "soft-medium", but we shall see if it softens up as time goes on. We had to buy an additional pillow-top cover in order to make this mattress tolerable. It does not get too hot or cold and offers excellent support, but it is stiff unless you are a heavier person. Still seems to be of good quality construction and time will tell how it holds up - will try to return in a year to update.
I add my opinion to the thousands. With a bad neck from a 1982 motorcycle accident, I slept on a bed made from a plywood deck with 4 inches of ordinary upholstery foam for the last 34 years. Extra firm, like the floor. I am a side sleeper, and after passing 55 some time ago, I developed arthritis in my hips, among other places. I had the ultimate surgical repair of my neck in 2010, so my neck no longer required a hard bed with precise pillows. My wife and I slept on the Alden last night, fell asleep immediately, and were reluctant to get out of it in the morning. It was blissful. I got a name brand mattress cover that supposedly provides cool comfort. The mattress seems warmer than 4 inches of foam, but not unpleasantly warm. Use a lighter blanket, or during the winter, set thermostat to 60. I read many of the reviews, including the negatives saying this is too firm. A carpeted floor should be used as a measure of hardness (1) and a sack of goose feathers as soft (10). This mattress would be a 4. Most importantly, it relieved the pressure on my hips for a pain free night. If I did not have a few more years of work, I would spend 12 hours/day in this bed.
This mattress replaced a memory foam mattress that we had purchased 7 years ago from a different online vendor. I researched the highest rated mattresses. (Consumer reviews do help, so please share yours, regardless of your experience.) I learned who the best manufacturers are and how long one can reasonably expect these to last (about half their stated warranty, sometimes less). This was one of two brands that we considered, the other was not in stock and we needed a new mattress, STAT.
Shipping was fast, cost was reasonable, and my back is much improved. If you haven't slept on a memory foam mattress, it's difficult to describe "firm but forgiving." Lots of support, but support that feels like it's made just for you.
This is my 2nd Sleep Innovation mattress from Amazon, the first one was a 12 inch firm. this is a 14 inch med-firm. I absolutely love them. I would recommend the med-firm for people weight under 170lbs.
I purchased this mattress after having been really unhappy with the rock hard firmness of the Sleep Innovations Taylor mattress.
This Alden mattress is described as being medium/soft. There is really nothing soft about this mattress. It is medium/firm, at best. But, I like a firm mattress and this mattress is firm but VERY comfortable. This is a very good deal for a mattress, there's no need to spend thousands on a highly marketed brand.
I will update this as necessary as time goes on.
The box is a bit of a pain to move (roughly 20"x20"x40" and 100 pounds). Once I got it in place, there have been absolutely no issues. Cutting off the shrink wrapping was no problem at all, and it was actually kind of neat to see the item return to its intended shape once out of the shrink wrap. When I cut the first layer of shrink wrap off, it almost sounded like the mattress took a breath.
I had read reviews that mentioned an odor issue at first, but there was no odor on mine even immediately out of the box.
The mattress looked like it was back to its usual shape within an hour, but the material that comes with it says it might take a few days.
Also, this is a fabulously comfortable mattress. For me, it is firm but not so firm that it feels like you are sleeping on a board.
I would highly recommend this product, and I might be purchasing another for my guest bedroom.
