These mattresses may not be the best of the batch in terms of support. Though most report initial comfort and support of the spine, others don't like how they work with their body. If this brand is on your list, do additional research to ensure it works for your body.
Edge support is a popular measure for those that like to sit on the edge of their mattress. Some folks, however, don't report it being as large of an issue for them. Some folks feel strongly about support issues so make sure to do added reading if edge support is an important item for you.
Discovering a mattress that is highly durable is essential to mattress shoppers. But, with mattress brands focused on beating their competition for profits, it isn't always clear. That said, with great data on material quality, craftsmanship, and customers feedback, these mattresses should do well with longevity and last more than 5 years for most sleepers. But, some folks who are heavier may experience some degrading sooner.
Customers give these mattresses higher than average customer satisfaction ratings. This means these mattresses get good scores from sleepers overall, but some had different ordeals. Some folks didn't like the overall feel. Keep reading to ensure that these will work for your body type!
Most reviewers find these mattresses to be supportive, which means they do well aligning the spine per their firmness level. That said, there are some reports of support issues, so make sure to do research to connect your purchase pick with your body type and sleeping position.
Overall, these mattresses are reported as having good edge support, which means most don't experience a depression when sitting on the side of the mattress.

In testing the surface supportiveness of the mattress, the support is even across the surface. That said, some reviewers describe rare support issues, so make sure to look at customer feedback before buying.
Having a mattress that is durable is very important to shoppers, but some companies care more about profits than they do about quality. These mattresses are above average when it comes to durability. Most folks will find that they are happy with their mattress after 5 to 7 years, but some folks that weigh more than average may discover it degrades faster.
I had great hopes for this bed; however, it is just too firm. Our former memory foam mattress lasted about 7 years, and my husband and I were beginning to have lower back pain because the bed had broken down and was too soft. Prior to that happening; however, we were very happy with the bed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer was no longer in business or we would have just purchased another.
After lots of research of reviews, etc., on the internet, I settled on the pacbed original 11." I was a little concerned about the only complaints being that the bed was too firm, but I thought we would try it and we could also buy a topper if it was too firm. First, the gel memory foam on the pacbed is different from our former bed, which conformed to your body. The gel memory foam simply depresses where you lay, more like a traditional spring form mattress, instead of enveloping your body. In addition, the three inches is not sufficient because you end up depressing through to the support foam, which is very hard. For reference, I am 5'7" and 145 lbs. Both my husband and I have had hip pain since purchasing this bed, and I can no longer sleep on my stomach. I have forced myself to sleep on my side with a pillow between my legs, which is the only way I can sleep comfortably and not wake up in pain.
We bought a 3" memory foam topper that was returnable (through another vendor) to get us through the 60 trial period, but it has made our bed ridiculously high (14") and while it does help relieve the pressure points, it just does not measure up to our old bed as far as comfort goes, and I still have issues with my arms falling asleep when I sleep on my stomach. Sigh. Unfortunately, this is going back when our trial is up in 30 days.
I also find it odd that I cannot figure out how to leave a review on their site. Perhaps they don't let you review until the full 60 days has past.
I'm giving this product 3 out of 5 for now. I suspect it will go down to a 2 unless it miraculously improves in comfort.
I researched the best I could online. SleepLikeTheDead.com appears to be, purports to be, a non-biased review organization. They rate this product higher than any other. And report 380+ customer reviews in part of their opinion.
"The ratings – based on 380+ consumer reviews gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology – show how Bed In A Box mattresses compare to the average mattress."
Problem is, I can't find any customer reviews on the BedInaBox website. I can't find anywhere to leave a review on their website. I can't find any ling on the SleepLikeTheDead website to provide a review. So, I'll leave it here, with the other 5.
I purchased a twin for my son and a king fro myself. My son's mattress has no "off-gassing" smell. My mattress smells like it became moldy in the air vacuumed packaging, and is going on 5 days of a smell I can't sleep with. The smell has permeated my down comforter and I suspect I'm going to need to replace it.
My son says his mattress is fine and has no issues with comfort.
I have issues with my L5/S1. My previous mattress caused me discomfort. This mattress makes my back pain unbearable. I can't sleep through he night and have pain all day long. I am resorting to sleeping on the couch while I wait for the 60 day trial period to end.
The bed does not give in enough. My hips are raised while my L5 is forced down. It's basic physics. Even if you don't have L5 issues, this mattress will certainly encourage it. If I slept on my side, I'm sure it would not be an issue. I don't sleep on my side.
Not impressed. Not impressed with SleepLikeTheDead or BedInABox.
I can only hope that they don't expect me to ship this thing back to get the money back guarantee. I don't have the equipment to make it compact and vacuum packed that they do when they shipped it to me.
I LOVE this bed!!!!!! While shopping for a new mattress I wanted to try a non traditional online mattress retailor. I first tried CASPER beds and that bed was so uncomfortable I could only sllep on it for 4 nights before my wife made we change back to our spring mattress. This was our next bed and after a week we decided we would keep it for good. The customer service during ordering was great . I really liked the try in home no risk policy but dont worry you wont need to use it cause this bed is amazing. It is just as comfortable as the Temper-pedic beds I tried in stores. Give this bed a try whats the worst that could happen.
Arrived in a very manageably sized package, I didn't have any off gassing issues, and the bed is every bit as comfortable as I'd hoped so far.
Excellent..just what me and my wife needed
Not as comfortable as I imagined
We recently ordered the PacBed Original and a foundation, King, online. Ordering was straightforward and easy. Communication from Bed-In-A-Box was timely and done via email. Our mattress and foundation arrived within four business days. Set up for the foundation took about 20 minutes - directions were easy to follow and assembly was without hitch. Unboxing / unwrapping of the mattress was quick and again, easy, taking about 4 minutes. This king size mattress is a bit heavy and unweidly to move into place on the foundation but with two people it was done within 30 seconds. Total time to set up: 30 minutes! Note: There was no smell to the mattress.
The mattress feel is firm. You can barely feel another move, toss or turn, or get in or out of the bed. It did take a few days to adjust to the feel of the mattress and getting a quilted mattress cover helped in adding a bit of 'cushion'. The first few days my husband and I woke up stiff...though we believe that was due to staying in one position rather than tossing and turning or lack of support.
After two weeks sleeping on the mattress...we love it! It's comfortable. Neither of us toss or turn anymore. It provides quality support. When we need to replace our other mattresses, this will be the one we buy!
Bought this mattress to replace a pillow top mattress that was showing some wear and not very comfortable any more. Very pleased so far. Our son recommended bed in a box after he bought one for himself 2 years ago.
We recently purchased a 'Bed in the Box', everyone thought I was crazy, but the online research and reviews were great so we decided to give it a try - we are very happy with the mattress, the ordering process and delivery.
Great price. Quick delivery. Super comfortable ! My husband is up by 6:30 AM having never slept better!! Customer for like!
My husband and I love this bed. It is extremely comfortable and supportive, without being too soft. The warranty plus the 120-day money back guarantee are unheard of and excellent. I am so excited to have this bed for a long, long time!
Our 8 year old Tempurpedic no longer did the trick. Sore backs for both of us every morning. Our new mattress is great, easy to move and unpack, no off-gassing, and so comfortable.
Been sleeping on the mattress for several weeks now. I would call it firm. It's very comfortable for me as a stomach/back sleeper. I thought it might be too firm for my wife as she is a side sleeper, but she is happy too.
I'm not sure what I was expecting at first, my initial shock was that it was literally a bed in a box. From visiting with others about a foam mattress, we were told to 'break' in the bed by walking/jumping on it. Now the bed has settled quite nicely. We are sleeping much more comfortably and soundly. I truly wake up with few to zero aches. Overall, BedInABox was extremely easy to purchase from, quick to ship and so far a great product! I only hope it continues to get better through the years!
Very firm, very comfortable bed! No backaches! In fact, I like it better than our tempurpedic!
Comfortable, but a little firmer than I expected.
Have only slept on it 3 night due to being out of town. Seems good so far. It is an adjustment from sleeping on a inner spring mattress for 50 years. The mattress was a little firmer than I expected. I want to give it a good month before I can truly give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.
I bought this to replace my old mattress. It is a little firmer than I expected but overall nice mattress. I do sleep better.
initially my pacbed felt far firmer than my tranquility I had before, and its supposed to be the softer bed. after 1 week I think I like the bed but I really need more time to know for sure.
We've only had our mattress for 8 days, so it's a little difficult for me to give it a full 5 stars. I bought this mattress over my husband's mild objections, really worried it wouldn't work out. So far, it has. I'm sleeping much more comfortably than I have in a year. I'm a side sleeper and can only sleep on left side due to medical issues. I've developed arthritis in left hip. Happily, I'm not waking up in the night because of pain in my hip and feel rested and ache free in the morning. My husband is feeling more rested, too. The 2 things I'm not so happy about are the mattress seems concave. I actually feel like I could roll over to the middle when my husband gets in bed. I don't like that; what will happen in the future? Also, I can feel him move around. I was counting on this being motion free. I should have gotten a king and or a higher quality mattress. I've already recommended Bed in a Box to a friend.
My wife and I are sleeping much better since we got this bed. I haven't had any of the neck pains I used to have with our old bed. Setup was pretty easy and was accomplished without problem.
The bed came and was easy to assemble. We also bought the box spring which was fairly simple to assemble. The bed is firmer than I am used to
I explained that I was waking up every morning with back pain. For giving a company $1500, I would expect some kind of customer support. Instead I was told my mattress was past it's "try period" therefore there was nothing they could do. Many mattress companies offer a comfort guarantee. Not these guys. Regret my purchase 100%.
4 nights so far and I feel that I am adapting to the bed and the bed to me. Trying to replicate the memory of a bed that felt like lying on a cloud and... one that I looked forward to returning to if ever away on a trip. That bed was an extra firm traditional spring coil mattress with a 2” tempurpedic memory foam topper. Only drawback to that setup was that the topper gained heat and retained it throughout the night. Figured the new foam mattress technology could offer both the firmness, contour and comfort of the topper, and provide cooling and heat dissipation. Compared many of the bedinabox solutions and settled here because of the material composition layer mix and the fact that it was thicker at 12”. First night could really feel the density and support but wished it was a tad softer. Was really comfortable when lying on back but since I am predominantly a side sleeper the initial firmness took some getting used to. With each subsequent night I feel the mattress giving a little more as perhaps the compression and use conditions and eases the surface a bit over time. I typically toss and turn throughout the night because of both insomnia and apnea so I was optimistic that a new mattress could help. I feel a progression with this mattress in the right direction but think that another layer similar to the feel of traditional memory foam would make it perfect. I do feel as though I’m tossing less and more of that movement can be attributed to poor pillows and neck adjustments - that I am also replacing by weeks end with mypillow. Pleasantly surprised that off gassing and odor is minimal out of the box and seems to be getting less by the night; really not an issue. Also pleased that the heat gain I would be worried about has not factored in with this mattress. I’m choosing not to add a topper and expect that this mattress will grow on me. Overall very satisfied with my choice and experience thus far.View More Reviews
I am a little disappointed with this bed because it doesn’t seem to be as firm as tge twin size mattresses I bought last November. Having a choice of firmness... would be better, I think.
We have had the Dromma mattress and foundation for appx 3 weeks. The foundation was easy to assemble and so far the mattress is GREAT. Both my wife and... I have slept great on it. Time will tell but I think it's a keeper!
The best mattress that I have ever purchased. I was skeptical buying online, without ever touching the bed, but the reviews were so good I had to try.... I was not disappointed. I am a combat veteran with sleep issues, so this purchase was an important one for me. This is a great bed at a great price, without the hassle of going to a store and being "sold" a mattress.
Didn't receive order confirmation after placing order online. Would also like a copy of my receipt, return policy, and warranty information both in the... box with bed and emailed.
I am a United States Navy Veteran and I would like to personally thank Dromma for offering us a military discount. Dromma went above and beyond to make... sure that my buying experience was perfect. And they delivered on that promise. I spent many hours reviewing different bed in a box mattresses before deciding to order my first bed in a box mattress from Dromma. I live within a few blocks of two mattress stores and I thought about going there to buy another mattress and box spring, however, I used a razor blade to cut open and see how my last mattress and box spring that cost way more than a Dromma mattress was constructed and I discovered very poor quality construction and materials used. I will never again buy a mattress and box spring as a result. You can simply unzip a Dromma mattress to see what's inside because they have nothing to hide. If your looking for a bed in a box mattress to buy that is top quality at an affordable price and made right here in the USA, look no further.
Customer service was great, both online and on the phone. Bed arrived quickly. It was easy to watch it unroll itself, no smell. MADE IN USA of USA materials... was most important. Changed from a hard and very heavy 100% latex mattress. Much easier to make the bed now. Ordered the Med Firm, but thought it was too firm. Put a 2" topper on it and all is well. I am not sure if they offer two levels of firmness anymore.
First foam type mattress purchase. Did mot know what to expect, but thus far i am sleeping better, my back feels better and even my snoring has improve.... Definitely would recommend it to anyone!
I love the Dromma mattress. It's firm but not hard. I slept great starting the first night. I hardly move at all and never wake up stiff. It took a couple... nights for my wife to get used the new mattress, but she loves it now as well.
Heavenly bed! That extra 1" makes all the difference in a luxurious feel. Solid, comfortable and amazing!!!! I love that this is probably the healthiest... mattress I can sleep on, too!
We ordered this bed for my daughter and she is getting a full nights sleep and waking well rested. She is also tossing and turning much less.
Both my husband and myself are in our early 60's and have always owned a traditional coil mattress. When we were due in replacing our old coil for a new... one I began to research our options. One option was a memory foam mattress! My next worry was the issue if I would wake up hot on a memory foam, Dromma bed explained how their mattress was different with a layer of cooling gel and took care of the heat issues. Dromma Bed gave 200 nights and you could still request a refund! Dromma Bed is made in the USA! Every review I could find gave nothing less than a 4 star and most were 5 stars! I do not regret my decision and my husband loves our new mattress!
Great bed very pleased with our King which we have had for 2 years now. We decided to get an adjustable base so we decided to purchase 2 more twins. Great... price and quick delivery. Thanks so much.
Needed a bed for a vacation property and didn't want to spend over $3000 at our local mattress store to duplicate the current "memory foam" bed at our... primary residence, so decided to give online mattress shopping a try. So glad I found Dromma. Mattress arrived on time and was ready for immediate use. Would definitely recommend and purchase again.
all in all, great bed! didn't get any notifications after the initial order acknowledgement an after a couple of emails eventually got an email with deliver... status.
Bet Mattress we ever had. My wife's backaches stopped as soon as she slept on this bed!!!
Comfy comfy comfy......
We ordered firm but we seem to sink in in some spots. Should of sent back to replace but to much trouble.
I really did not have any issues with ordering my bed. People were nice and able to assist me in deciding between a firm and soft mattress Style. People... answered my email I sent much later after buying it to learn more about how it prevents dust mites and not. They were able to detail the return policy and the fact that there was no issues with returns for such a long time. So there's really no difficulty in ordering the bed.
We are used to a firm mattress so still getting adjusted to med. firm and it's been three months. The mattress is great other than firmness and the sides... are way to soft. Not meant to easily sit on the edge of the bed. I really don't think this should be called med. firm. No firmness about it.
I received fast delivery. The bed did not smell when unrolled. It is very comfortable so far (1 week).
This mattress shipped super fast with quick delivery, easy setup, and is by far the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on in my life. I would highly... recommend this mattress to anyone. I already feel a difference in my back pain after only a week of sleeping on it. And with their 200-night guarantee, I have nothing to lose by trying it out. So happy with my purchase!
Absolutely perfect product and purchase experience. I researched six or eight memory foam beds and finally concluded this would be the ideal bed and it... is. Dromma changed from offering two choices of firmness from medium soft and medium firm to just one that their rep called a perfect firmness. We really do like it and the quality of the cover seems to out-do the others, at least based on pictures. In real life the cover is very nice. Shipped quickly and set up in probably 10 - 15 minutes with no problem. Love it.
Great customer service when I needed to exchange the softer mattress for the firmer one!!
My daughter and son in law have this bed and recommended it to me. Great choice! Very comfortable and would encourage others to try it too! May get another... for my guest room but could not find firmness options on your website...... please get back to me.....a satisfied customer : )
Nice so far. 1 week.
Very comfortable and cool as promised.
We purchased the bed and the pillows,completely satisfied.
It took a little while to figure out how to get it on the mattress but all in all when on it is perfect.
Very comfortable mattress. I would recommend it to anyone. Also very quick delivery!
Bed came very fast. Box looked too small... Opened box ... Bed became huge and full sized... So easy , such a good deal and you can sleep on it for many... night and send it back if you don't like it. But you will like it . Bc it's so comfy and makes me wanna stay in bed . I had both my sister's , and my roommate order one . It's glorious
I loved this mattress for the first couple months. As I neared the end of the trial, it started softening up a bit, which could have been a good thing,... but ended up causing me back pain. I feel like its a great mattress, it just didn't quite have the support that I needed. I've tried a few other all memory foam mattresses since with similar experiences, so I think it's me much more than the mattress. The return process was simple and painless. I would recommend them if the mattress sounds like it would work for you, even though it didn't work for me.
This bed is excellent! Very satisfied and recommend absolutely.
After sleeping on this mattress for almost a year, I feel as if my consumer choice was the right one. My husband and I tried a medium-soft Leesa mattress... and it was too firm for both my husband and me. I had slept on a Casper and it didn't have the thickness that I wanted, granted this was only after one night. I ultimately chose the dromma because of their 200 night trial and customer reviews. I felt that if a company is that confident in their product, then I want to see why. When the dromma arrived I was anxious to replace the Leesa mattress. Delivery and set up were both simple. I felt that after the first night I had made the right desicion. it took my husband a little longer to love the mattress as he was annoyed at yet another mattress delivery. After a few weeks he loved the mattress. It is a firm, yet cozy feeling mattress. The cooling core technology is refreshing in the summer and warm in the winter time. The price was very competitive and reasonable for such a quality mattress. I will return to dromma the next time I am in the market for a mattress.
It's been a couple years and I still love my dromma bed. It may sink in a bit (especially on my 6'5" man's side) but not as much as any other bed I've... had. We rotate regularly and that helps. Going order one for the Motorhome!
I have owned this bed for about a year now and still sleep very well. I wanted a softer mattress and this fit the bill. I still sleep soundly and comfortably... where I used to have aches and pains!
An Excellent mattress with great soft comfort, but still provides great support. I tried another mail-order mattress that just wasn't soft enough and I... returned it and bought the Dromma Bed. Dromma gives you 200 days of worry free time to decide if this is the right mattress for you. Don't hesitate to buy this fantastic mattress.
Sleeps great! We tried leesa first and it was just to soft and we did not sleep well. Since switching to dromma we are back to a good night's sleep! We... bought the med firm.
Love the mattress. Very comfortable. Staff at Dromma we're very helpful and pleasant. I would definitely recommend the 'Dromma matress'
I got the medium firm Dromma Bed and it is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in - better than any of the nice hotel beds I've slept in, too. Not... a twinge of back pain when I get up in the morning, either (I'm a back sleeper). I can easily edge-sit on it too. My wife has the medium soft Dromma Bed and she loves that one since she's a side-sleeper and the bed gives her some relief from her arthritic hip pain. I recommend the Dromma Bed!
