Most sleepers feel excellent with their mattresses and reviewed them well. Some sleepers, however, didn't report feeling the same way. If you are considering one of these mattresses, make sure to go over the mattress specifics below so you will know if it will align with your body.
Some customers report that these mattresses are well supported, but others have had problems with the support. For those that are larger in frame or have tender spines, do some added research to ensure the mattress fits your body.
There are positive and negatives reported about edge support. Some feel that there is evenness in support across the surface, but others had problems with dipping along the sides.
Having a mattress that is durable is very important to shoppers, but some companies care more about profits than they do about quality. The good thing is that these mattreses are above average when it comes to longevity. Most customers are happy with their mattress after 5 years, but some heavier folks may see their mattress degrade faster.
If you are thinking about this one, do more research below to learn if this mattress will work for you. Sadly, they don't get the best reception from all customers. Some were perfectly satisfied with their mattress, but others had complaints about their comfort.
A supportive mattress can mean the difference between a comfortable night sleep and pain. Over the first few months of use, these mattresses have high marks for support, but there are those that found their mattress less supportive. Make sure that the mattress is spec'd for your body type of firmness preference before purchasing.
Edge support is an important attribute in hunting down a mattress that is comfortable no matter where you relax on it. Most report that these mattresses have good edge support, but some sleepers may experience more dipping over time.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
In density tests that measure the initial supportiveness, these mattresses have fairly even support. That said, there are some that have experienced issues with support over time.
Unfortunately, customers don't always love the durability of these mattresses. While some customers felt comfortable with their mattress, others describe problems with comfort over a short time. Make sure to do some extra reading of the reviews and warranty policies before buying.
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
Extremely dissappointed after I shelled out so much money. After only a few days, there is severe body contouring and a lump in the middle. This is so ridiculous. I called them and they said that it is normal for a 1.5 inch depression, but I can't believe this because it is unsleepable. I feel like I can barely reach my partner through the hump.View More Reviews
7-8 hours of our day is spent asleep. Spend a bit more and enjoy the loveliness of waking without a sore neck or back. So worth every penny. One indulgence you'll get your money's worth. I look forward to my bed every night.

We own a Kluft and I dislike it intensely, so does he. I found that after some time the bed became dented on each side (where we lay) with a rise in the middle. The probable explanation for not liking it might be due to both of us traveling out of the country where the beds were harder in places like Germany and Sweden. We loved those beds a lot and in the future will be getting an extremely hard frame with the one thinner mattress (I believe IKEA has them now). The IKEA bed is unremarkable in appearance, but so so very comfortable. The Kluft bed consist of foam beneath the top layer of fabric and eventually the fabric wore down, revealing the foam. The foam contorted to the shape of our bodies. Neither one of us like the look or feel anymore - we wake with sore backs and some shoulder discomfort. Granted, he had the bed quite a few years, considering the length of time he has had it, I suppose it lasted a while. At one time it felt as if it may have been hard, but really the bed seems more sturdy in appearance than it actually feels.
So far, really enjoying this mattress. It's like sleeping on a cloud!
There is a big indent where I sleep and a hill between my wife and me. It is not what you would expect after spending that kind of money on a mattress. Very dissappointed.
The first few months on this mattress were absolutely amazing. But now there is a major change happening. The bed is starting to sag where my husband and I sleep. The middle is much higher so we it feels like you are rolling up hill when you try to get to the middle. Not good.
I had a foam bed that offgassed and gave me asthma. This bed didn't do that at all. It is super comfortable and I have been sleeping through the whole night since I've gotten it.
I just got the Kluft and really can't complain. It is super comfortable and I am enjoying my sleep more than my 15 year old mattress.
The bed was amazing the first 4 months, but now it has a visible dent on my husband's side. He is a little bigger (220lbs) so it could be that. I am still sleeping really well, but he is starting to complain.
this is an I ndulgence for me that is well worth the expense.
Loved the comfort of the mattress, but the latex in the plush top is hot. Had to put (in addition to the mattress cover, of course the sheets) a down comforter on top of the mattress to block the heat from my body. Finally a good nights sleep. Going to exchange this mattress for one that doesn’t have the latex that close to the top. That particular latex was suppose to keep cool in hot weather and warm in cool weather so I was told. I recommend this product, but it’s not for me.
This bed is part of a king set used in a new adjustable bed. It is so soft, it's hard to believe it is also supportive. After sleeping (miserably) on firm mattresses for years because I thought that was best for my back, I am now in heaven. Unlike the Sleep Number Bed that we just got rid of -- which only caused sagging in the center when you lowered the number -- this bed is soft everywhere, yet you can also feel it gently supporting your body.
This mattress....AWESOME. I purchased this mattress about 30 days ago and decided to wait before writing a review. This mattress strikes the perfect balance between comfort and support. After topping the mattress with a cotton pad and high quality sheets, this rivals any bed I've slept in at a 5 star hotel. This model is perfect for my needs. I'm as satisfied as the first day I climbed on it.
Been on the hunt for a mattress for at least 5 months. I looked at Casper, Vispring and everything in between and the range is huge! I was close to pulling the trigger on a 12k mattress at a mattress boutique in Chicago until I ran into Luke in the bedding dept at the Home location dwntn. He was patient and understanding on how important an investment this was for me. I visited at least 4 times before purchasing and so glad I did. I saved 7 grand and was able to spend a little more on the bedroom furniture that supported it. Luke told me "you can find comfort in just about any new mattress you try". And after laying on many I came to find he was absolutely right. Side back or stomach sleeper take your time and look at it as a true investment.
We are enjoying our new mattress and would recommend to others, this is the mattress you want to consider. Friends told us they bought one and we decided we needed one as well. Thanks to Bloomingdales in San Francisco, Hamid, for all his help. Delivery was on time and the installation went smoothly. Thanks Bloomingdales for everything and the bonus dollars and points. We most likely will put it to good use wither here or in New York next month.
I've only had my Kluft for a little bit, but it sleeps well and when I wake up I no longer have a pain in my back. I would recommend for side or back sleepers.
The only thing better than my mattress was my Bloomie’s customer service—from the knowledgeable sales person who didn’t pressure me to spend more than I needed to, to the delivery. When there was confusion about whether the contracted delivery people would take my old mattress away, I called my Bloomie’s sale rep who immediately intervened and made sure it was taken!
I had purchased a different mattress from Bloomingdale's that was too firm for me and caused me terrible back pain. I exchanged that mattress for this one and have been very happy so far; no back pain at all! I have only had the mattress for 2 weeks though, so I only hope that it lasts. I would have given it 5 stars, but the tufting is very deep and you can feel it while you're laying on the mattress. I would have preferred that it wasn't as deep.
We are so pleased with this mattress, it’s been a long search for the right mattress that I don’t sleep hot on.
I did some diligent shopping at several stores in search of quality and a perfect fit before deciding on the Kluft mattress and box springs. My selection was aided by a knowledgeable sales rep at Bloomingdale's who understood construction and materials and value. It became clear to me that mattress products at Bloomingdale's were "best of the best," but with alternative design, materials and price points. I was able to narrow my decision easily. This Kluft mattress and box spring met and exceeded my expectations for luxurious comfort and restfulness and resolving some quality of sleep issues.
We tried each of the Klufts on display at the store. We ordered the Preston in the king size as it seemed neither too firm nor too soft and the price was acceptable to us. The mattress is worse than the old one we replaced. It does not feel remotely like the model we tried in store. You literally sink into it. My upper back and neck hurt from the misalignment of sleeping on it. We are going to exchange it for a different model. This is my first experience with this brand and I am very diasappointed. We have had the mattress for two weeks and it was awful from day one.
Purchased this mattress 2 years ago. It is well constructed and looks great. But after two years it became soft and we start having pains in the mornings. Bloomingdales has great service and contacted the manufacturer to diagnose the problem... But the manufacturer did nothing since the indentation was less than 1.5 inches. They suggested to use the mattress that causes us pain for another year and call them for another measurement.... Don't waste your money thinking you are buying something
Very comfortable and wake up feeling refreshed and minimal aches and pains
This mattress is very high quality, luxurious and great to sleep on. It is firm and supportive. Everything you want for a great night sleep.
After a long research, we bought this bed and are very happy so far. It's definitely worth the money because we get up in the morning feeling rested and free of any back pain. Quality mattress is very important for good health and keep you away from doctors.
We bought the mattress a week ago and until now we are very happy. Its firm the way we wanted and we don't have back pain anymore at night or when we wake up. Highly recommended. Its worth the money
I have had three spine surgeries and sleeping has been painful ever since. For years I've suspected my mattress, while new at the time, was still too soft. I have my Kluft for a week and I have no pain during the night!! The most firm mattress in their line but not the most expensive!
I am a retailer forAireloome mattress and have never been so disappointed with the quality of both the service and the mattresses. I.5" indentation in a mattress is their delineation of when there is a problem! Absurd!! I will not sell another mattress and will never recommend this company to a soul. What a sad state. We can't even get them to return a call. I would rate them a - 1
