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%.
I decided to buy one of these after a friend of mine from bridge club told me about how wonderful they are. I was impressed by their connection to the Royal family. Unfortunately, the bed hasn't been what I expected. I wake up with back pain and think it is because of that bed -- way too firm.View More Reviews
went to a store yesterday that had both Hypnos and Vi-Spring. Hypnos was WAY too firm...solid like a rock.
Was gifted one of these by my company and it was okay for what I would consider a luxury brand. It is a bit firm, but I like my beds firm.
I've had this bed for the past 3 months and it is divine. I highly recommend it.
I was able to get one of these Hypnos beds and I have finally been able to sleep through the night again.
Something is wanting in this mattress, but I can't put my finger on it. I was very impressed by their branding and acclaim, and was hopeful that this would what my sleep needed. But, I'm still not sure.
This was my big investment and it was definitely worth it. The materials are very high quality and there has been no off-gassing or any other negatives that you would get from the trendy brands. This was for me.
I was expecting more of a luxury feel after spending so much money on my new mattress. Is it ok? Sure. But, when you shell out this kind of money, you are hoping for amazing. That is not how I feel.
A wonderful luxury bed. I sleep like a regent every night.
A hefy investment, but well worth it in the end. I love this new bed and so does my husband. No complaints.
both my wife and I are not large people, we purchased a very expensive Hypnos mattress with a topper and within a month and a half it was already sagging. I rotated it every week for six weeks and then every two weeks thereafter to no avail. The mattress now has two half moon shapes on either side and a big ridge in the middle. Furniture Village sent someone round to evaluate it and they said it had not sagged enough for a refund! Do not waste your money on this mattress.
This is the worse mattress that we have ever slept in, we paid £3000 for just the mattress and it feels like it's been slept in for years and we have only had it one month. Hypnos and living homes where we bought the mattress have sent people out to test the mattress, they laid on it for 20 seconds and said there is nothing wrong with it, we are waking every morning with back aches. We were swayed by the Royal warrants and the write up by Hypnos that it's the 'best bed in the world' in our opinion it's the worse. They won't accept our feelings and basically said there is nothing they can do! But we could go to the Furniture ombudsmen! (Nice customer service)! Anyway good luck if you buy one.
Very comfortable mattress. Slept on it directly on floor for two nights over Christmas and slept very soundly both nights.
Backache gone! I love this mattress. Best one I've bought. Highly recommend.
Absolutely love this matteres, it provides great support while the pillow top makes you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. This matteres also seems to keep the body temperature in check so no sweaty or cold nights in bed - just heavenly!
Best sleep for years. Only 'downside' is the overall thickness. Some fitted bed linen may not fit, but non-fitted sheets, no problem.
Really comfortable mattress!! love it...could sleep all day :)
Bought this mattress from Nottingham Store a week ago and told that it would feel slightly firmer on our existing base. The mattress has dipped already taking our body shape and the buttons on the pillow top dig into your spine and hips. This is the most uncomfortable mattress we've ever slept on.
Amazing Quality mattress, great comfort, worth spending on it !
Upgraded to a Hypnos mattress. Don't regret the decision at all. Best night sleep ever. Mattress worth every penny!
We bought this bed after having slept on a Hypnos bed in a luxury hotel. The price reflects the fact that it is a quality product, made in Britain. The recommendation is for a pure cotton mattress protector, which costs about £35. It is a very comfortable mattress, though it quickly forms small hollows where you lie, which we hadn't expected. Also you need to regularly turn it round - not easy as you get older!
Bought this mattress after recommendation from a friend and after reading the comments from other customers and I must say that I was not disappointed at all. Really good quality mattress and extremely comfortable to sleep on.
It took a few nights to get used to these new mattresses but now we really like them. The inclusive fabric topper gives the fairly firm mattress a lovely cosy feel. My troublesome back also feels well supported and comfortable. I thought I would miss my feather topper but I don't - and really wouldn't exchange it for anything else!
My wife and I have never slept so well since we took delivery of this mattress - we are very happy with this purchase.
Found it firmer than it felt in store & was starting to have doubts, but glad to report its now nice & comfy. As always with a mattress, you must try before buying. Now very happy with purchase.
Very comfortable mattress and ease to turn with good sized strong handles
The choice of a new mattress is something which is very individual so it is difficult to recommend to someone else. However, this mattress is made of natural fibres, it is firm without being uncomfortable. We bought it to replace our old mattress and we had no difficulty in adjusting to this new one. The quality of the materials is very high and I thought the name Hypnos had a good reputation for quality and good value. We thought the price was reasonable for a mattress of this quality.
Really comfortable mattress and great quality. Extra topping makes a real difference.
After a disastrous purchase only four years ago, we just had to replace our mattress. My son and daughter in law had discovered the true comfort of the Hypnos superb pillow top and couldn't have recommended it more. We went on their advice and now I feel the need to tell them how pleased we are with ours at every opportunity!!! We are now working on the rest of the family!
This is supremely comfortable and supportive, with a soft top layer to take the edge off the firmness. I have lower back pain, and this mattress really does help - it adjusts nicely to the shape of one's body and is very accommodating when (as with us) two people of significantly different sizes and weights sleep on the same surface. Despite the intake of breath when I saw the price, it is definitely worth it - no need to spend even more: this is truly excellent.
It's ckearly a quality product - but I probably wouldn't choose it again. But firm for me at only 10 stone. The top quilt but also makes me too hot
After 6 weeks in hospital I was left with a sore lower back. The Hypnos matters enable me to have the 8 hours of sleep I was used to.
This is an amazing mattress that was instantly comfortable! Although it is technically a firm mattress, it does not feel firm because it is so cushioned.
The Hypnos mattress is superbly comfortable and well made and it helps to have a ten year guarantee.
Was suffering from back and neck pain so decided it was time for a new mattress and this has been perfect!
Excellent mattress and base with (optional) 4-drawer storage. We've never slept so well! Polite delivery guys set the whole thing up and took away the old bed. Service as it should be. I haven't regretted making this purchase for a second.
I bought the mattress, that cost a lot of money, having been assured that I would and could be assured of a good nights sleep, especially given that I had back problems. The pillow topping I was assured was the ultimate in comfort on top of the firm mattress. What a mistake, the 'buttons' used to secure the topping to the mattress are right on a line with your hip and lower back, so no matter whether you lay on your right or left side or on your back, these 'buttons' intrude and press on that part of your body, meaning you have constant pressure from the item and giving you/me discomfort. Because I had to be away from home for a while I have now missed the 'return' date.
We'd expected that the mattress would need time to settle, but from the very first night it was very comfy and supportive without being hard or lumpy. The comfort topper is just enough to relax in to. It's heavy to turn, but that isn't surprising.Have never (as yet after 5 months) woken up with a sore back, which is unheard of for me. Great quality at a reasonable price.
Mattress-firm, ultra supportive mattress. Pillow top gives a soft feel but may limit longevity however ten year guarantee gives peace of mind. Side stitching means no sagging at the ends. Quality product.
I purchased 2 of these for 2 new bedrooms. What an amazing mattress! The mattress is the best i have ever slept on and would recommend anyone to purchase one.
