Online reviews and customer sentiment are great ways to figure out if you want to spend more time researching a specific product. Reviewers overall have positive things to say about these mattresses, but there are some that didn't feel as comfortable. Take a look at the reviews and specifics below to learn if these mattresses will work for you.
Some customers report that these mattresses are well supported, but others have had problems with the support. For those that are heavier or require more support because of achy backs, do some added reading to make sure the mattress you buy fits you.
The customers have mixed thoughts about edge support on these mattresses. Some find these mattresses to have even support, but others had issues with supportive comfort and changes in support.
Having comfort last for years and years is an essential factor for mattress buyers. Though there might be some factors, like our bodies, that would mean that we would still want to a new mattress after 15 years, we could all sleep easier if it was a guarantee our mattress would last that long. These mattresses are competitive when it comes to durability. Most customers will find they last over 7 years, but some have reported not loving the overall feel. If you are a larger person and concerned about durability, make sure to read the reviews before selecting.
Some sleepers are comfortable with their new beds, but others were not as satisfied with how the mattress made them feel. Even though some folks appreciate these mattresses, they have lower customer satisfaction that average overall. Read on for more specifics if you are interested in buying.
Customers report that these mattresses don't offer the kind of lasting support that some of the other brands may. Though some customers are pleased with these mattresses, if you are larger or have wide hips or shoulders, review the mattress specifications before purchasing.
For those that need longevity in their edge support., some reviewers report that these mattresses may not have the kind of edge support over the long term that you may need.
Discovering a durable mattress is really nice, but it's not always that simple. Unfortunately, customers don't tend to rate these mattresses well in terms of durability. That being said, some may provide comfort for years and years, while other sleepers may find their mattress falters quickly. If you are a bigger person, take some time reading more 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
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 have a MLily Bliss King Size Mattress and it's the BEST mattress I've ever slept on! For the first time in YEARS I am sleeping through the night and I don't wake up with aches and pains! It also doesn't make you hot! LOVE THAT! You can't pay enough money for how a great night sleep makes you feel in the morning! So thankful I have my MLily Bliss!View More Reviews
I bought this mattress its by far the most comfortable mattress I have ever owned. I previously owned a tempurpedic mattress and it use to always make me hot, I had had back problems for years until getting one, and within 2 days of sleeping on it, they went away. The cover on the mattress feels great, this was a fantastic deal and I'm thrilled.
Best mattress I have ever owned. Good support yet soft and comfortable. My wife and I are now spoiled as we cannot sleep on motel mattresses
It feels like luxury at first. I've owned a queen size for about a month now. I have woke up almost every night with severe sciatic and mid back pain. It's way to soft and offers no support.
I purchased this months 4 months ago. It has the cooling gel in it, but I wake up with night sweats and hot., I also started to develop an allergy to it, I sleep on my back, it causes me to itch like crazy, and doesn't stop. I had to buy a mattress topper 3'' thick to put on top of it to keep away from the memory foam, even with a mattress protector on it. Helped some, but now I am stuck with it. It is however very soft and comfortable. Pity about the heat and itching though. I upgraded to this from a Serta memory foam without cooling gel, and I should have kept it.
Without a doubt the WORST investment in a mattress I have ever made. One star is six too many.
Thank you Elliot & friend for personally coming to my house to drop off my mattress the next day after purchasing! Couldnt be happier! THANK YOU! - Christy W
This is the second Mlily mattress I have purchased in the last two years. I love my original one though you have to spin them around every other month or so because they really do form to your body...They also tend to be a little warm, I live in Ohio and rarely used more than a sheet all winter long, with my house set to 62 (62 is totally not low because my house keeps the heat in so it feels warmer for those of you that think I might possibly be a penguin). This mattress I bought for a friend of mine and it's just as comfy as mine. The off gas usually goes away within 24 hours and for some reason I tend to believe this mattress has less off gas than mine. So the sole reason for not giving it a 5 star is because I sleep hot and it isn't the coolest bed I've slept in, but it's uber comfy.
I bought one of these two years ago, paid about 750 for it and in my opinion, I got a heck of a deal. The bed is super comfortable and is comparable to other more expensive mattresses. I spin it about every six months or so and bc its a coil/foam hybrid, it's kept its shape nicely. Everyone who has slept a night in this bed says it's one of the better sleeps they've had. I recommend it.
So far so awesome. I'm a big guy with a serious accumulation of orthopedic issues. Used this to replace a twelve year old top of the line Sealy king size that was keeping both my wife and I up tossing and turning all night. Tried this in a showroom and I was so relaxed in five minutes I almost couldn't get up. It does sleep warmer than a conventional mattress, no doubt about it, BUT, it's a whole lot cooler than the old1st generation foams ( which I found intolerably hot). Super simple pakage shipping makes it a whole lot simpler to handle than a conventional, and we experienced very little if any issues with degassing odors or the foam reaching it's advertised thickness. Due to space issues our two new mattresses were unwrapped and left to reshape standing on their side, which may have actually helped, given the greater surface area exposure and reduced resistance that that orientation allowed. We've now had them (a pair of long twins) for several months and my 110 lb. wife found it too firm, so we replaced hers with something better suited to the princess and the pea and gave hers to our son, and he loves it. We'll see how well it holds up over time, but considering the difference in cost I could replace this every 3-4 years for what we spent on the last Sealy. We did also try probably two dozen similar offerings from the major names and the fanciest Sealy foam mattress was the only one we found that we liked as much or better, just not several thousand dollars better. I consider this proof that you don't have to sell a kidney to get decent night's sleep. Just hope it lasts. We also purchased a pair of the adjustable bed frames with the wired remotes (Pragma) and are equally impressed with them in terms of function and value. The wired remotes are actually a blessing in disguise for folks like me who are constantly losing one. The only caveat is that the twins tend to slide apart on their frames, so I'm working on addressing that (maybe Velcro or a retainer such as is used on the foot of the bed) but overall sleeping better than I have in years.
My wife and I have had this mattress for 3 years now, and it's still great. There is a little bit of a break in now, but it's still very comfortable and not too soft. It doesn't feel like a hammock as a spring mattress would, and it's actually still medium firm. I have back problems, namely lower back spasms, and this has helped me greatly. It works for back and side sleepers (myself) and stomach sleepers (my wife).
I actually bought this from a local vendor in my area. For years I have favored what my family lovingly calls an 'iron slab' for a mattress. I'm a firm supporter of a firm mattress. However, as I get older I got more aches and pains to go with my years and a hard as rock mattress is no longer ideal. But I didn't really want a cloud to sleep on. I cannot remember how I got turned on to memory foam mattresses, but after exhaustive research I surmised which one would be the best, this one wasn't even on my radar. Before buying the one I had selected online, I wanted to test out some memory foam mattresses in the store to make sure that it was possible for them to be comfortable and yet firm enough that I wasn't sinking into them. I went to 5 stores locally, 4 of the stores encouraged me to look at a Sealy, however, the vendor I had gotten my previous mattress from showed me the M Lily. I fell in love with the Lily, but I'm a cautious buyer, so I went home and did some research, and liked what I found. So I bought it two days later. I have had this mattress now for a week and I love it. I won't say that it wasn't an adjustment coming off of a spring mattress, because it was. This mattress is firm, I tried to punch it and it actually hurt my fist. However, the human body is heavy and this mattress will sink a little on the areas where you put the most pressure, namely your butt. LOL. And if you stay in one area for long and warm up I have noticed that the mattress foam seems to get almost 'gooey', however, move from that spot and everything goes back to the way it was. I love the quilted cover, I loved it so much I actually didn't put a fitted sheet on the mattress for the first 5 days. The top layer of foam is some sort of cool gel formula and you can feel it if you run your hand over the quilted top. Altogether, if you like a firm spring mattress than I would recommend this mattress for you.
Just bought one of these here in town. I've literally been in it all night and day it's awesome I weigh close to 300 lbs my wife doesn't feel me get in and out of bed it cushions my weight it's just a great mattress. Even our lil boston terrier loves it lol. Only thing I suggest is make sure buying online like this that you don't lose the 10 year warranty it's great for piece of mind
I bought my daughter this mattress a couple years ago. She loves is so much, I just bought another for my son. He is sleeping very well and loves it, too.
had back pain, headache and tired all the time, and all of it is fixed with this mattress. It offers great support while molding to your body and relieving pressure points. I weigh 240 lbs. Lets hope it lasts a long time
We just bought this mattress about a week ago and we absolutely love it! I was afraid of buying a mattress online so we went to our local furniture store where they had one of these for us to test out. Loved it, bought it, no regrets. It's not too soft not too firm. My husband doesn't like soft beds and I don't like firm beds but we both agree this is the best mattress ever. Also very afordable for what you get.
Bed will not last more than a couple years. Mattress will deform under your body weight until it is virtually impossible to stay on bed. Warranty is a scam. They will not honor the integrity of the mattress.
We were replacing a futon mattress on a day bed in our office/spare room. The futon was so hard it was like sleeping on a stone floor. The new mattress is perfect for me to sleep on when my partner has the flu etc. It has enough support but is similar to our memory foam mattress. When we unpacked it there was a slight smell as it aired but it was minimal and went away quickly. I'm quite happy with this mattress. It's perfect for my day bed. Other reviews have commented on how it bears up over time, obviously I can't speak to that concern.
7'' size is very comfortable: supportive yet soft. Makes my sleeper chair very accommodating, especially for older guests. Arrived quickly; packing odors dissipated within 24 hours.
Excellent product and great delivery service for a bulky product
We had purchased two 10'' Mlily mattresses for our vacation and everyone raves about them. So, when it was time to invest in a mattress for our main home, we thought we'd do the same. After reading dozens of reviews, we went with the 13'' Serenity pillow top model. The first night seemed like a dream. After the first night, my wife and I have experienced nagging lower back pain that can only be caused by the mattress. We are hoping that the mattress softens a bit with time, but so far we are less than completely happy.
Love it it's like sleeping on a cloud best purchase I've made so far
A great mattress, finally found the one!
Very impressed. Had reservations buying a cheaper brand as opposed to Tempurpedic, but the cost savings made it worth the gamble. We've had it for a month now. VERY glad we went this route. The bed is comfortable, sucking you in yet still firm. And the cost savings makes it even more worth it. I would recommend this bed.
It's high quality and makes spring mattresses seems like something dinosaurs would sleep on. If you can imagine being on a distant planet in anothe galaxy sleeping like a boss, this bed is what you'd be sleeping on. Seriously though, it's very supportive yet very comfortable. Stains easy but the lady who sold it to me said any foam mattress needs a waterproof cover. Why the cover isn't washable on this model is anyone's guess. Maybe the makers of the bed thought the buyers for these things were going to be single people that happen to be extremely careful about not having wine in bed...Also, yes, as the other review states, it is very comparable to the mattress at Ashley furniture and such. Maybe more comfy.
Heavenly. The most comfortable mattress I've ever had the privilege of lying on. I replaced my $3k Tempurpedic with the MLily and have slept much better.
I must admit I never would have imagined I would buy a mattress on the Internet without even trying it out first. Well we took a chance, and the whole experience has far surpassed my expectations. My husband and I were disappointed with our local store who carries Mlily. We went there and I liked the Bliss mattress and he thought it was too soft. So we tried out the Energize model and it was too firm for me. So while looking at the Mlily catalog they gave us, we both liked the tranquility mattress and thought that would be a good choice for us. Hybrid , middle of the road firmness, cooling feature and it was one of their higher end models as well as being featured on the cover of the Mlily catalog. Well our local store told us this Tranquility mattress was not available here and was mostly sold in Europe! Really??? Well I immediately looked it up online and found it on here for close to 500 dollars less than the bliss model at the store, with free shipping!!! Now...about the mattress...... It is absolutely wonderful!!! It arrived within 3 days of ordering it and came rolled up nicely in a blue tarp to protect it. We opened it and let it expand for 24 hours.... now keep in mind: I was sleeping on a 19 year old innerspring mattress and I was used to it being very soft, and having the roll to the middle and sink feature lol! Anyway at first I thought it was a bit firm for me, but I have been sleeping on this for almost 2 months and it has softened up just a little and I have been sleeping soundly throughout the night! Its firm but soft if that makes sense. I absolutely love this mattress and would highly recommend it!!! You have lots of support but when you lay down, it conforms to your body without sinking and it just feels dreamy!!! I feel more rested the next day and don't wake up 6 or 7 times throughout the night like I did on our old mattress. The seller we got it from was wonderful too! He went above and beyond to make sure some details were ironed out and helped with us choosing a new foundation for this mattress. We tried out several mattresses locally which were in the 3000 dollar range and this mattress feels just as good if not better than those. I highly recommend this mattress as my husband I have both recieved many positive ramifications as a result of purchasing this mattress:)
We stayed in a hotel suite that had this mattress. We loved it so much we bought one on amazon and it is exceeding our expectations. Love the gel that helps keep the bed feeling cool. The memory foam has great support and doesn't give you the 'sinking' feeling. It conforms to your body very nicely with comfortable support, it doesn't swallow you up. Overall we love this mattress, couldn't be happier.
We have had this mattress for two years. It started off great but not so good now. I wake up around 3:00 am now with my back hurting. The mattress top has gotten loose with the material pooching up. The support is just not there any more. Have slept on other beds (hotels, visiting family, etc) and I sleep well with no back pain. So now I have to put out another chunk of money for another mattress - not an easy thing to do with our income.
Never had any complaints for this bed. Very comfortable and at a great value. Do not pay over 800 for a queen size, otherwise you are getting majorly ripped off.
I have only had this bed for under 30 days but I am so sad I spent $2700 on it. I told the sales person I wanted a bed similar to my ICloud Tempurpedic. I was told this is better than the ICloud. Well, I feel like I am laying in a coffin. The bed sags so bad in the middle and to get out of it is like climbing Mount Everest. I do not have this kind of money to be spending on a mattress. Am so so sad I purchased this product. I would not even sell it to anyone but just take it to the dump.
I have had 6 back surgeries getting ready for #7 ,when I contacted the company about a problem with the mattress that I paid $1200 for in April I was told to dismantle and lay everything on the floor and lay a broomstick on it and take pictures of it, I tried this and was layed up for 4 days on a mattress that hurts my back, thank you very much I guess I am stuck with it so when I can I will buy another one, mostly upset about being deceived about warranty and comfort level thank you and very happy I will never have to deal with this company again
We have bought 2 beds from Mlily and they are the best beds. We also have bought several pillows and they do not go flat like your normal pillows. I would highly recommend there beds and pillows to anyone. I have back problems and since we have bought our bed I don't wake up in pain like I use to.
The first time I laid down on my MLILY queen mattress, I knew it was the best. A year later it still is. It is quality and comfort.
Recently purchased an Mlily at a fairly expensive price, after receiving it and getting it on the bed, it was impossible to sleep on.TOO HARD,like sleeping on a concrete floor, the place we bought it from says oh just give it time.well we gave it time and then some more time. So we went back to where we purchased the mattress,and all they would say is that Mlily does not have a comfort guarentee.. So after giving it another month and not hearing it back from the store where we purchased it. The mlily went to the dump this morning. We never heard back from the store or the company.. Pretty sorry. Every friend i have will know to avoid mlily...Terry SheltonJackson Tn.
