Reading online reviews is a wonderful way to find out if a specific product will work for you. Overall, these mattresses are rated well by customers, but there are some that didn't feel as comfortable. Review the mattress specifics below for information on if this mattress will work for you.
These mattresses may not be the best in terms of support. Though some folks like the feel of these mattresses, others have found these mattresses not to be comfortable. If this brand is on your list, do additional research to ensure it works for your body.
Overall, edge support is extremely important to those with mobility issues. Some folks, however, don't report it being as large of an issue for them. Edge support in these mattresses may not be excellent so make sure to do added research if it is important for you.
Having a durable mattress is essential to shoppers, but some brands are not as focused on it as they should be. That said, these mattresses get high marks from sleepers on durability. Most customers are happy with their mattress for 5 to 7 years, but some folks that are heavier may find that there mattress doesn't last as long.
Everyone wants to look at customer responses before we buy such a pricy product. That being said, it isn't always simple for shoppers to get to the bottom of things after looking at many different sites. We did an examination of reviews and sentiment and discovered that sleepers rate these mattresses above average overall. However, some had disagreements about overall feel. Study more about the mattress specifics below.
Whether a mattress is supportive or not is the difference between comfort and pain for stomach and back sleepers. Also, deeper support can be a make or break for side sleepers who need response but are at risk for back problems. These mattresses provide sleepers with above average supportiveness. Some, however, have reported issues with support so if you are heavier in body type, make sure your choice aligns with your body.
Most feel comfortable with the edge support of these mattresses. Those that are heavier may find some dipping close to the edges.
Durable mattresses last anywhere between 7 - 12 years based on the materials. Generally speaking, foam mattresses will have a lower baseline of durability, while coil mattresses will last longer if they are high quality. That being said, mattresses that don't put emphasis on durability will start breaking down much faster independent of materials used. Reviewers give these mattresses mixed ratings. Some describe good comfort, but others have had issues with lasting support.
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%.
So I've has a few days to test this mattress out and i'm quite pleased with it so far. With mattresses, they are a dime a dozen. With so many manufacturers, sizes, firmness levels, etc, it can be quite a pain choosing a mattress these days. This mattress is your typical full size mattress however it's a hybrid one so it has the standard coil spring foundation in addition to a layer of foam material on top for added comfort. What I initially liked about this mattress was that it doesn't require a box spring like other conventional mattresses do. This seems to be the new thing for mattresses and it's one less thing to move and one less thing to buy in my opinion. With these box springless mattresses, all you need is a platform frame and you're good to go. I bought a relatively inexpensive one and it works just great for this mattress. First off, the thing about this mattress is the shipping. It's a mattress however it comes shipped in a square box. Comes packaged like a giant sushi roll and you simply cut the plastic wrapping off and the mattress unravels itself; kinda cool actually. Moving a traditional full size mattress meant a couple people and possibly a hand truck. This packaging/shipping method was far more easier to work with than if it were a normal mattress/box spring. I believe this mattress is a medium however it's quite plush. The top layer of the mattress offers a good deal of comfort without the sinking feeling some other mattresses have. It's firm enough to provide adequate support yet is also comfortable and you get that cushy feeling whenever you sleep on it. For those wondering about edge support, it's not quite as firm as a normal mattress however there is some edge support on the bed. If you sit directly on the edge of this bed, you'll probably slide off. If you plant your rear end a little bit off the edge then it's fine. Only thing I noticed about this bed (and not a huge thing) is that certain parts of the bed produces a crinkly noise like the sound when someone balls up a piece of paper. Kinda of a wax paper like sound to it. It's noticeable for me since the part of the mattress that makes this noise is right where I lay my head. Not a big thing and perhaps with some additional expansion time, it'll go away. Overall, very nice mattress for the budget conscience. Offers good support and very comfy.View More Reviews
First I wanted to state that this mattress comes in a tall box because it is compressed into a roll and is covered in plastic. And it is heavy so I suggest that if you are an older female like me, that you get some help because I didn’t! And just for your information, I placed the mattress onto my purchased metal frame that I have been using for several weeks. When you are removing the plastic, be careful that you don’t cut the mattress. I was very careful but could see how easily it could happen. I received the Full size & it was rolled from head to foot so make certain you have it turned this way because mine began unfolding / expanding before I got all the plastic off. That is another reason to have help. From what I could see, it looks like the mattress is 1st covered in a plastic bag before being wrapped in several layers plastic to protect it. I can’t be positive because I cut the bag and the mattress began expanding. So I did a lot of heavy lifting, moving, and bending which didn’t help my lower back. At first I thought the mattress was too firm/hard even with the pillow top. But I was still looking forward to sleeping on the new mattress and felt this was a good time to ‘check it out’. The next morning my back was much better. But to be certain it was the mattress helping my back, I’ve slept on it several nights to make certain. My back isn’t perfect (which will take some adjustments) but my back feels much better in the mornings.
The Safavieh Harmony 10'' SPRING Mattress, White in a Full size is a really comfortable mattress. When it was delivered, I was shocked to see it rolled up in a box. It was vacuum sealed in plastic. I just opened the box and cut the plastic to open it and the mattress just came open easily. I like the pillow top on it, makes it comfortable. Took about two days for the mattress to lay completely flat. It forms to my body and I do not toss and turn as much as I use to. When someone else is in the bed, you barely feel them move. I am really surprised at how incredibly sofa and comfortable this mattress is. I am considering buying another one for my other bed and maybe for my son's camper. It will be easy for him to put it in there because of it coming rolled up vacuum sealed in a box. It is in a tall box and is on the heavy side. The full size weighs 65 pounds so you may need help carrying it. When you cut the plastic off, make sure to be careful as to not cut the mattress itself. Also, position it where you would like it to be so that you do not have to keep moving it. Having someone to help you is a very good idea. After sleeping on it for a week, I do not wake up with back pain as much as I use to. I definitely will be recommending this Safavieh Harmony Spring Mattress to my family and friends. This is my new go to mattress for my home and for mine and my son's camper. Love it.
I was surprised it came in a small enough box to fit in any car, so if you have kids going to college, this is a mattress you can transport easily while it's still boxed. Once you take it out it takes 2 days for it to flatten. It's pretty comfortable to my surprise, considering the price is not high. Mattresses are expensive, but this one is a deal including the free shipping. It doesn't need a box spring. I've looked at several mattresses in this price range and for a 10 inch this is a very good deal.
This product is pretty comfortable, although I did add a mattress pad/cover to it for protection purposes. The sheets I have are for deeper mattresses so they are a bit 'loose'. Loved how it came all wrapped up. Made it very easy to move in to my new place and set up!
We purchased the king size and have been sleeping on it for the past 3 months now. It's very comfortable and I have no complaints.
Just what I needed for a good nights rest!
Falling apart in 2 months
Customer service helped me choose a firm mattress. I am happy that I went with Kiss. I really have been having the best sleep when I'm on my the new mattress.
I received this Safavieh Serenity 11.5" spring mattress in the Walmart Spark Reviewer program in exchange for an honest review. My daughter who is almost three had been waking in the middle of night very often. She would fall right to sleep when she would get in my bed but as soon as I put her back in her toddler bed she was up again. I knew it was time for a new mattress for her and this was perfect. The mattress arrived in a rather small box, at first I thought they had my order wrong but after opening I realized the mattress came in two pieces and rolled up. It was wrapped so tight in plastic as soon as I ripped the plastic open the mattress unrolled. It has the top and bottom piece and the top actually zips onto the bottom to keep them together. Having it come in two pieces made it a breeze getting it up to my daughters bedroom. I recommend waiting to cut the plastic open until the mattress is in the room it will be used in. The top piece is a memory foam topper very soft but firm, I don't think we will have an issue with the top having indents of where my daughter sleeps anytime soon. I did sleep on the mattress a few nights to give an accurate review. It is really nice there is no squeaky or spring popping noise when I move. Many nights my daughter asks me to lay with her until she falls asleep and the moving off the bed would wake her. On this mattress someone can be jumping on one side while the person on the other side will stay still. My only concern so far with this mattress is the top part is slightly bigger than the bottom so it hangs over the edges. If you are on the edge of the bed it feels like you are on a slant and will fall off. Other than that it is a nice comfy mattress.
WOW! Mattress in a box! I didn't even know that was possible, especially with a spring mattress. Because it arrives in such a convenient size, it makes transporting it to its final room very easy---no more hassle with trying to maneuver corners, stairs, etc. That being said, it is pretty heavy, so be sure to have another person with you. "Assembly" was very simple. Inside the box are two large rolls--one is the mattress, the other is foam topper. Remove from box and lay it on your bed foundation/bedspring. Next, just begin tearing the plastic and slightly unroll it, then continue to remove the plastic. I would recommend just using your hands and not a knife to remove the plastic, so as to not damage your new bed! Be careful as you do this. This is where additional hands/partner is a must! As you unroll it, it will eventually spring open pretty fast, so have someone around to help release it in a more controlled manner. Next, unroll the mattress topper the same way. It attaches via a zipper. Don't worry though, the zipper is small and several inches from the edges, so there is no way it will become bothersome in the future. The mattress is almost fully expanded, but took another hour or so to fully expand to the dimensions of my full-size boxspring. The directions state to allow for a full 48-hrs for full height, but it CAN be slept on immediately once it is out of the box! :) I couldn't even wait till night to try it out. I took an amazing afternoon nap and felt so well-rested. Later that night, my wife and I slept like babies! Felt so refreshed the next day. With each coil being individually wrapped, minimal motion is transferred across the bed---so no more disturbing your partner when you need to get up! Surprisingly, the edges have decent amount of support on them while sitting or getting in/out of bed. I also did NOT notice any "fresh-out-of-the-box" odor, but I did wait a few hours before putting on the sheets...just in case. Highly recommend this mattress!!
OMG!! I have never seen a mattress come shipped like this! How do you get a full sized mattress to roll up so that it fit into such a small box? Because it did come packed like it did it made it much easier go get it into my room for set up. It was much harder to get the old one out. When we opened the box the bed itself was in two rolls one was the springs or bottom part of the bed and when you release the last bit of tape stand back as it will spring open pretty quickly. Although it looks way too small to be the full 11 inches it does expand pretty quickly. The second roll was the memory foam portion of the bed and unrolled easily though not a quickly as the spring part and it did not expand as much as I’d have liked. I was surprised that this bed is a firm as it is. Frankly with the memory foam top I was expecting more give. I do like how firm it is but would prefer a thicker memory foam top. I had hoped it would expand more than it did. I also do not like having to push it back on be bed all the time since it moves when I get up and I can get up a few times a night for various reasons. All in all though I have been sleeping for longer periods of time without waking up and it has helped some with my back & joint issues while sleeping and for me that is a huge difference. How I really appreciate having a new mattress.
I needed another mattress for a second bedroom in my house. I was surprised and happy by how easy this was. It was incredibly nice to not have to be waiting around all day for furniture delivery people. This mattress ships rolled up in a box and was waiting for me when I got home. The box is a little heavy for one person to move. Unrolling the mattress and topper was easy. It took about a day for the mattress to lay completely flat for me. I slept on it for two nights and the sleep has been great. It has a great combination of softness and firmness.
I have to admit I was very skeptical at first. I mean come on A bed in a box and it be any good? Well I was fooled. The first night was just getting use to another mattress. The second night, I slept better. As each night came I slept better than I had in a LONG time. For the first time since my back surgery I actually didn't feel like I was all twisted up and aching from head to toe. I am very impressed with this mattress.
This mattress was very comfortable for the price but if you want to higher-quality and softer, I suggest going with a non-pillow top as this pillow top zips onto the mattress. Any queen-size sheets that you try to put onto this mattress without a sheet hook underneath will slip off and it gets very annoying
After two weeks of sleeping on this mattress, we decided we could no longer use the memory foam that goes on top of the spring mattress. It is unfortunately too soft for us and gives us both lower back pain, even when we are healthy people and have no antecedents. The company doesn’t take returns...
Provides additional support which adds to my sleeping comfort.
Very happy with this mattress. Very comfortable. Arrived quickly and well packaged.
this bed hurt my back although it "feels" comfortable at first I have had major neck shoulder upper and lower back pain. It was also a few inches shorter than described which I wouldn't care about if it wasn't a back breaker. Good customer service though as I see this bed sales for double or more the price elsewhere and seems to have good reviews so just not for me.
Bought this for my son. He says he is sleeping deeper and it is a comfortable mattress. I recommend it.
Great bed! Very comfortable! Great price. Arrived sooner than expected.
Very comfortable! Very pleased with this product.
First of all, I think it's amazing how they are able to get these mattresses into such a small box for shipping. Once they are inflated they look and feel just like any other spring mattress. For me, this mattress was a little too hard. I have fibromyalgia and sleep on my side. I wake up to very painful hips. I put a memory foam topper on top of this mattress and that made it perfect for me. But because of my condition, I couldn't sleep directly on this mattress. I wouldn't consider this mattress to be plush, but I wouldn't consider it to be firm either. I have a firm mattress on another bed and it is very firm compared to this one. The mattress appears to be made well and it looks nice. I'd say it's somewhere around a between a plush and a medium firm mattress. It's a nice mattress for the price.
Love this mattress. I bought it for my guest room but if it were a queen I would use if for my own room. It's soft and seems to cradle for a good nights sleep. I was skeptical when I saw this mattress show up in a box. Surely there is not a full mattress in there, but there is. Once you let sit for while it fills out nicely with no strong smells. It is a good buy.
I have been using this mattress for about 20 days. I first want to say that comfort is a very subjective thing. What might be hard to me may be soft for you. I recommend reading as many reviews as you can find. This EXACT mattress is sold and reviewed on a another site ( Google the whole name of this mattress to find it ) This mattress is listed here on Amazon as a “Plush” level of comfort. I personally find this mattress to be rather firm. I was seeking a true Plush and I feel this mattress is too hard to be called “Plush” The other site that has this EXACT mattress listed describes it as a “Plush firm” I feel that is the more accurate description of this mattress. The pillow top is very thin and hardly filled. It seems to offer little to no cushioning. The mattress feels hard. This is a traditional Spring mattress but it has almost zero “bounce” I cannot sleep on it , after a few hours my shoulders and arms go numb. I am primarily a stomach and side sleeper. There is almost no “give” in this mattress. If your looking to sink in a little bit or want to feel soft comfort this is NOT the mattress for you. It currently sells for about $ 237.00 . I feel it looks like a $237.00 dollar mattress. It looks kind of cheap. There are no handles on the sides. The side material looks like nylon/polyester. The top coverings look like a cheap felt material. It's not a total ripoff but it is NOT a fancy mattress. I am unhappy with the comfort level. I even tried using a 3 inch egg crate topper to make it softer. Even with the topper it feels too hard to me. The only good thing about this mattress was the delivery. It arrives at your door and can be unboxed and readied for use by one person.
Twin beds, for my family, are primarily for guests and/or children. They don't get used that much and so the mattresses we had in place were pretty old and pretty uncomfortable, at least for my aging back. We found there to be two big advantages for this product. The first is its packaging. Given the rolled air-free packaging, we were easily able to throw the package in the car (you may need two people since it's still heavy) to bring to a separate residence. Moving a mattress without needing a pickup is a big advantage sometimes. But you can only do that once. Once the product is open, it is a normal twin mattress size, in this case somewhat thicker than the original mattress. You may, as a result, want to check the depth against your current mattress since older twin sheets might not fit properly (new ones are usually big enough to cover this depth mattress, from what I found). As for comfort, overall, this was far more comfortable than our older mattresses. I tried it for a night and woke up without any back pain that I sometimes get with mattresses that are too soft. I'm used to a tempur-pedic foam mattress; this mattress gave me a little more springiness but just as much support. My guests will be pleased, so I'm pleased as well.
This mattress arrived in a box about 4' x 1' x 1'. My first though was, there's a mattress in there? Yep, there is. Opening the box revealed a plastic bag with the air pumped out, and a mattress curled up inside. I would like to see how they do that! Open the bag carefully, and make sure you have plenty of room, because at some point the seal will be broken and the mattress will expand to full size. Instant mattress... just add air! The mattress is comfortable, but the foam layer is fairly thin. I'll probably get a padded mattress pad to put over it. Other than that, this is a good basic mattress.
I love this mattress. It is extremely comfortable. It comes shipped in a rectangular box and is all rolled up so it will need time to flatten. It took about a week to lay completely flat and feel proper. The memory foam conforms to your body and really makes for comfy sleep. It also is priced well where as mattresses sold in stores are more than double. I would not hesitate to buy this type of product online, again.
The mattress is good quality, but how much you like or dislike it will depend on personal taste. That being said, it is much too cushiony and soft for my taste but it doesn't matter since I will be using this in one of the guest bedrooms. It comes in a tubular package that you better be strong or have someone to help you.
Since this is a box spring and a mattress (extra thick topper) you want to be setup properly, and this is BIG; you need a bed frame with wood slots for example that are down in the frame or you could use a low profile box spring under this one if you like the mile high stack look. This is a Euro design so it is a low profile. With a 10" high frame it sits 20" off of the floor to the top of the mattress. This box spring is advanced in that it has individual springs providing comfort, and if you roll over, your bed mate will not be disturbed, but it does not come with a rigid base. Standard box springs come with boards in the bottom, this is pure springs. It has a material wrap like a regular box spring. So here is the deal, depending on how high the mattress is you can get a lower profile wood slat frame or a taller one. Here is an example of both...

If you want that super tall bed look you could use a separate box spring for example in an 8" or low profile 5". As is the case with my other bedrooms memory foam mattresses they have a slightly firmer feel when new but even after one night the spots where you use it soften slightly. Here is a super big plus about this next generation memory foam is that it absolutely has no odor. My other mattress smelled to the high heavens when you first unfolded them. So between the smell and the need for them to expand to full height for 2 or 3 days, this is much better. This one achieving the ideal right out of the box is perfect. Now a closing note about feel. So what does that mean in terms of comfort? One man's comfort is another man’s less than ideal. Every memory foam mattress I have ever laid on when new gave me the impression that it was a little too firm, and this one is no exception. In every other case, as I mentioned they get softer very nicely after you sleep on them for a night or two, and only in those areas where you are sleeping on it. So if you are looking for that marshmallow softness right out of the box this is not it. I had a memory foam from Costco that was like that. The only problem is that you sink down in it so far, and yes it sinks like the others where you sleep on it, but in this case you are down in a valley unable to climb out. I had to swing my leg way over the hill to get to the outside, and that was painful to my joint where my leg met my hip. So although it appears like a powder puff it comes at a heavy price. It's like wearing a new pair of shoes. Things of quality get better with age.
Very Comfortable. Worth every Penny.
DON'T BUY THIS MATTRESS. ITS JUNK. SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR THE FINAL 3 YEAR REVIEW ON THIS 5 YEAR WARRANTY PROTECTED MATTRESS. -After 3 days in-Mattress came in rolled up in a tall box for easy shipping. The box IS heavy so do try and get some help. Also you must open the box carefully, it'll almost explode out of the box so watch out. (that was a fun exciting part, im not gonna lie) The mattress took about 3 full days to completely Pop up and expand. Remember, they like vac seal these mattresses so give it a chance to expand. I didn't wait 3 days, in fact I slept on it the first day it arrived and slept so well. Lol -After 2 months, going on 3 and really I love this mattress. It's incredibly comfortable. Doesn't have any funny smells. It stays cool, doesn't trap heaT which is great because that's the only reason I didn't opt for an all temperpedic. -After 3 Years- Um.....I don't know where to start on this. After one year I rotated it. After year 2 I had to rotate it again. Can't flip it because its a pillowtop. I'm at year 3 and the bed is sinking on the sides I sleep on. I switched sleeping sides but this is happening all around and frankly, I should have to switch which side of the mattress I sleep on just to sleep on the sides with the only support left. Im waking up with sore shoulders and a sore back. I decided to buy a new mattress. So I came back to trusty Amazon then remembered out of the blue to check the warranty on the mattress. Ok great, says 5 years warranty and Im only 3 years in. I should be covered right? WRONG. AND THIS IS WHERE THE 1 STAR COMES IN. i would've updated my review to 3 stars from 5 since it didn't last until its warranty period. 1 star, because guess what? I contacted the manufacturer and now they're telling me that its Amazon's responsibility and are stating that Amazon is a 3rd party seller. However, the warranty is clearly a manufacturer warranty and this is a product sold directly by Safavieh through Amazon's platform. This was delivered from Safavieh warehouses, not Amazon. DON'T BUY THE MATTRESS. IT'S JUNK!
This is a very comfortable and convenient piece of bedding - memory foam on top for comfort, and a set of springs underneath for support. You don't need a box spring, just this mattress. We found it much more comfortable than our previous memory foam-on-a-wooden-platform setup. Of course your preferences may be different. Another advantage: the item is shipped in wrapped and deflated format, in an oblong square box rather than a mattress-shaped box. So it is easier to carry. Once you get it out of the box, the mattress decompresses itself. Lots of fun to watch, kind of like a magic time lapse sequence.. So: perhaps not the height of luxury, and definitely doesn't feature adjustable firmness much less separate controls for the two sides of the bed. BUT it is an excellent mattress and saves you the money you might spend on a box spring. The combination of foam topper and springs is hard to beat - though, again, you might prefer something softer. Or firmer. Highly recommended, and I would gladly have spent my own money on this.
