The original BedInABox® is one of the original trend-setter brands to sell mattresses to customers in a box. Since starting, they have added mattresses in a variety of firmness options and pricepoints. With a focus on memory foam mattresses, their offerings have multiple layers of foam and range from 9'' to 13'' thick. Overall, customers like their mattresses at first, but there were some complaints about durability reported by some.
Luxi revolutionized the mattress-in-a-box industry by offering a customizable 3-in-1 mattress that can be adjusted at home. How does it work? Each of the adjustable mattress layers are interchangeable for either side of the bed giving both sleepers exactly the firmness that is right for them. Adding a new budget non-adjustable foam mattress to their lineup, Luxi is definitely a brand to look at!
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Luxi in this match up!

Overall, these mattresses may leave something to be desired in terms of lasting support. Though some sleepers find these mattresses to be comfortable, some have had issues with lasting alignment. If you are considering these mattresess, make sure to take a look further before buying.
Edge support is a popular measure for those that like to sit on the edge of their mattress. Others don't really feel its that big of a deal as long as they are comfy sleeping. These mattresses may not offer the kind of edge support that lasts so make sure to do added research if it is important to you.
Durability is always important to mattress shoppers, but due to new companies and products, it can be hard for shoppers to find out the truth. That said, by compiling all of the data on the materials, tests, and reviews, we've been able to get good information. Average sleepers find these mattresses to last more than a few years. For those that are of heavier builds, these mattresses may be less durable.
Customer satisfaction is not always easy to figure out with brands doing lots of work to have superb online reputations. That said, these mattresses are reviewed well by customers overall. However, there were a few complaints from customers that didn't feel as cozy so look at the specifics below to make sure that this mattress will work for you!
Some are happy with the supportiveness of these mattresses, but others have had complaints about the support lasting. For those that have tender backs already, do some added reading to make sure the mattress you buy fits you.
There are mixed feelings about edge support for these mattresses. Some customers report feeling good with the support across the surface, but others felt like things were uneven along the side.
Longevity is key to budget-conscious mattress shoppers. However, with brands fighting over profits, it isn't always a clear story for customers. That said, based on data from customers and materials used, these mattresses are rated well for durability and should give sleepers over 5 years of comfort for most. But, some who are heavier in build may find that their mattress degrades somewhat sooner.

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
My wife and I have been putting off buying a new mattress for years. We finally gave in and absolutely loving this mattress. I spoke customer service before purchasing and they were very knowledgeable and great to talk to. If your looking for a new mattress, I say go for it!View More Reviews
We slept a week on medium, and a week on soft. Boyfriend likes soft and I prefer medium. It's so easy to switch! We had a sleep number before and while that's adjustable, it doesn't give the support on the softer setting like the Luxi does or the flexibility on the firmer settings. We love it!! #LuxiSleep #SleepyStory
We've been sleeping on our King Luxi for a little over 3 weeks now and are very pleased with our bed. Adjusting the firmness is super easy, I like the medium firmness and my wife likes the soft. We are sleeping better than with our old mattress and waking a with no soreness.
I'm 139lbs, skinny, flexible, not muscle-y. Side sleeper. It's probably best to read reviews based on the body type of the reviewer. The Luxi offers FIRM, FIRMER, and FIRMEST – it is NOT soft. I bought this mattress based on its adjustability and reviews on Sleep Sherpa. I have loose ligaments and wake with my bones in one pile and all my soft tissue in another puddle. I wanted something that was firmly supportive underneath but with some sinkability for my hips and shoulders. On the 'soft' side, there is zero sinkability around my shoulders. Maybe a tiny bit at my hips. The edge support means there is a firm ledge in the middle of the kingsize bed with the medium and soft on together. I dread having to undo everything to flip the medium to soft because there’s so much to undo: I have Bed Bands clipped under the mattress to hold my mattress protector taut and Comfi-Snug drawstring sheets (these are great; Amazon; they keep most wrinkles out). I will have to add some kind of 2-3'' thick topper. Not satisfied with this mattress. It sounded more versatile and they should not use the word soft. I figured with ''9 mattresses in 1'' something should work. But their ''soft'' is the only option and… it's firm. Also, I don’t know how any regular sheets would work on this mattress without leaving a pile of wrinkles in the middle after sleeping on it because it is only 10'' thick and sheets seem made for 18'' thick mattresses these days.
Where do I start? We were searching high and low and reading all sorts of different direct to consumer mattress manufacturers websites. They all had such great things to offer, but we didn't know what kind of bed we wanted or what firmness. So we decided to go with the Luxi! My wife and I both started at different firmness settings, and changed them every few days until we decided what was the most comfortable, we both decided that we loved the soft configuration of the mattress. We have never slept better on our bed! It truly is an amazing feeling to wake up refreshed and renewed after a good long night sleep every single morning.
My wife and I recently moved into a new house with our son, and along with the move came a new King Mattress from Luxi. The delivery was fast, setup was even faster, and from the first night we were hooked! The materials are soft and luxurious, and the support at the "medium" firmness is just right for both of us. Moving is stressful, but falling asleep and staying asleep should not be. With our new bed, we love how quickly we fall asleep, and how rested we are in the morning. We're very happy with our purchase, which was extremely affordable I should add!
All my adult life I have felt that a firm mattress was best for a body and convinced myself that I preferred that. When my wonderful Luxi mattress arrived (initially set at medium), I decided to try an even softer sleep. It was so easy to unzip the cover and flip the mattress to the softer setting. What a difference that made in my sleep!! Love my Luxi!
We tried a couple other online mattress companies before the Luxi but you can't beat the way you can customize the Luxi to make sure you get your best sleep!
The wife and I received this King size Luxi mattress on May 24, 2016 as promised. Removing it from the box and set up was a breeze. Since then it's been cool, sound and pain free sleep! We played around with different firmness (also easy peasy) and decided we both like the soft even though you have the option for separate firmness.
Tried a couple other mattresses that didn't work for one or both of us. Luxi wins! Not only bringing together the dream of comfort and support, but also bringing us together on what mattress to keep!
I've had my Luxi mattress for about 2 months now and I fall asleep easier and no longer wake up feeling sweaty and stiff in the morning. Thanks to Luxi's SBT layer I've finally found a mattress that perfectly supports my back all while keeping me cool at night. Plus I can change the levels of support whenever I feel like it.
We had a sleep number queen mattress for ages and kept having problems with the foam at the edges and between the two bladders crushing down and making huge hollows to fall into during the night - a big problem for two side sleepers. But while the Luxi queen mattress does have two different sides - we use soft on one and firm on the other, so easy to change around - it doesn't have a different density foam hole in the middle or at the edges_ so no more Grand Canyon sleeping and leaping for us!!!!
I had several different brands over the years, one of those from the mountains, that has an air pump and those with the springs. Nothing compares to the Luxi! I was having my son's birthday party the day it was delivered and set it up right away. Slept on it that night after being very busy and on my feet for 12 or 15 hours and slept like a baby. Tried switching one side to the soft side and realized my body prefers the medium. I just wish there was a little "cheat sheet" in the box to show you how to make the adjustments. Other than that, GREAT!!!!
Once I had the Luxi in place, my first night was a bit rough sure to the fact I didn't adjust the firmness. Once adjusted, it felt great and I suspected it would be "the one". We laid down to watch some Netflix and after about 15 minutes I asked her if she liked it and got no response. When I looked over at her to try and get an answer, she was already fast asleep and well on her way to dream land. Needless to say we are very happy with our Luxi mattress!
Still in the process of buying furniture for the new place but the #LuxiSleep mattress is the first and favourite addition to my new room. Looking forward to trying out the different configurations (soft, med, firm).
We slept on it for a couple weeks as instructed and then decided to try flipping the foam to fine tune it to our liking. This mattress design is quite brilliant, we love it and will absolutely recommend your mattress to our friends and clients. I was a bit weary to order a mattress online but this was a piece of cake and it’s here to stay.
I love it!!!
Softest "Mattress in a Box" by far...
You can customize the mattress every night if you don't like how you slept the night before. You can get your money back after 2.5 years if you don't like it. I've slept on my Luxi for 3 months and am finally getting great sleep after 7 years of bad sleep. I'm not a sales guy. I'm just glad I found a mattress that helps me get a full night's rest and I'm OK with paying ~$900 for that priceless sleep. Maybe call and ask for a coupon if you think it's too expensive. Sometimes companies have promotions or sales.
I love that its fully customizable and I can change the firmness anytime I want.. loving this mattress.. thanks Luxi!
Ordering was a breeze, and customer service was superb. I recommend to all my friends that keep falling asleep on it when they come over to hang out.
I am very pleased with the Luxi technology, customer service and pricing.
My husband and I have been taking turns sleeping on the new full size Luxi mattress. I wanted to first try it out on the smaller guest room bed before considering and saving up for a king bed. As you can see the mattress is soooooo comfy, but we are use to having our own king size space that we are taking nightly turns. Ha, we are crazy. We are in love with this mattress. Thanks for a rare great product!
We've had our new Luxi mattress for a little over a week now. It's been pretty good sleeping with medium firm but I'm going to try firm for me and soft for my husband. I did a lot of research on the mattress before I decided to give it a try on Luxi. I just loved the idea of being able to have our own setting and that was the very reason I chose Luxi due to our different preferences. How innovative and creative this is! We'll play with different setting until we find our ultimate comfort!
I was in a car wreck and hadn't been able to get good sleep in years. This mattress has really changed my life. Sleep isn't painful anymore. I have uninterrupted sleep and my family is so much happier with me!
The ordering process was super easy and we received our bed a week after we ordered it. The "standard" medium setting is the perfect feel for both of us, even though my husband prefers a firm and I prefer a soft bed. He has been struggling with chronic back pain for a few years, and although it hasn't solved his back problems, he's experienced a substantial improvement with the help of this new mattress. Every aspect of the bed seems to be well made, from the removable cover to each of the different internal layers. Our toddler loves it too, and has started sneaking into our bedroom since we got our Luxi! :)
Plenty of room for 3 more! If you are looking for a new mattress...we are kinda in love with this one!
This is where the soft-side magic happens, where hundreds of tiny foam minions sink, balance, and support in response to our every movement. Thank you, Luxi, for making it possible for a couple of bony lightweights to sleep comfortably on our sides.
So it has been over two weeks on our new Luxi mattress and I'm happy to report it has been a dream so far. Both my wife and I have kept the mattress configured in the factory medium setting and we are loving it. The only complaint I have about my new bed is that I'm sleeping so deeply that getting out of bed in the morning is very very difficult! Haha.
This is a good mattress if anyone is in the market for one. 1000 night sleep guarantee.
After 10 years, we knew it was time for a new mattress and so began our extensive research. Torn between a couple different mattresses, the split customizable design of Luxi won out! After 2 weeks on this mattress we couldn't be happier with it. If you're in the market for a new mattress I would highly recommend the Luxi!!
Loving our new Luxi mattress!! Best night sleep we've had in a long time!
I was immediately attracted by the fact that the firmness is adjustable for each side individually. We are a couple of weeks in and couldn't be happier with spending half as much as we would with another company
It's customizable to soft, medium, or firm on each side. My last memory foam mattress was slumping and causing back pain. I now sleep great with support on my Luxi.
"A couple wks ago, I got a new mattress. I got to order online, and it arrived in a 2x4 ft cardboard box. (YESSSSSS!) The kids (and their big, strong muscles) helped me rearrange rooms by moving a queen mattress AND a king mattress to different places, so we could get this king mattress onto my bedframe. They helped with that too. Then we cut off the plastic, and it just "puffed out" into a totally awesome mattress!!.......And it so comfortable!! My little helpers love it too."
We've experimented with all of the different firmness options and we like the medium best. We need a good night sleep each night so that we can wake up with enough energy to keep up with our 4 kiddos and Luxi is fitting the bill. Overall we are very pleased.
Being very active every day puts a strain on my muscles and bones. When I come home after work or physical fitness, the Luxi is the solution to take off all the stress put on my body and everything feels perfect. Getting sleep is required not optional in order to function. I truly feel that I made the right choice with Luxi and have already recommended it to a few friends :)!!
We had dealt with mattress toppers and whatnot for a while, trying to ease our aching backs and bodies, and finally decided to take the plunge for a new mattress. We did a good amount a research before happening upon Luxi, and couldn't be happier! We love the fact we can choose our own level of comfort per side, and both of us feel rested in the morning.
My wife and I had slept on a cheap memory foam and a poor, sagging, innerspring mattress ever since we got married. She was always falling into a "hole" in the middle, and I would wake up every morning with back pain. After extensive research, we settled on Luxi. The mattress seemed so unique; and even though it was a newer company, I felt that the generous trial period and 1000 day pledge took most of the risk out of purchasing a mattress online. Let me just say, I'm 100% glad we chose Luxi! After just the first night, I woke up with no back pain whatsoever. It was like sleeping on a clou, and the support was great! My wife took a couple weeks to fully adjust; but she loves it now too. We've had the Luxi for a couple months now.
Definitely made a good choice going with Luxi over a more expensive mattress! #LuxiSleep #SleepyStory
