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.
Savvy Rest is well known for their organic and all-natural bedding, mattresses, and furniture. Their mattresses specifically are all certified GOTS-organic, which means that the textiles they use are organic only. Also, their Dunlop latex is USDA certified and GOLS certified as well. You can even customize the individual layers of latex in your mattress. Of course, this customization and quality in material comes at a price.

Customer sentiment is a quick way to find out if a company is as good as they say they are. Sleepers have positive things to say about these mattresses and their comfort, but there are some that had mixed experiences. Do some looking below into the mattress specifications to see if it will work for you.
A mattress with good support doesn't mean that it is necessarily firm. Good support means that it lines up your back and spine -- leading to a healthier night sleep. Unfortunately, these mattresses aren't the best in terms of support. Most customers are happy with the support right after purchase, but some folks felt like support was lacking over the long term.
For those that need to sit on the edge of their bed or roll to the side, even edge support is very important. These mattresses do a good job at edge support initially, but some may find that it changes over time.
Getting a durable mattress is essential to shoppers, but some brands don't care as much about long term quality as they do with immediate profits. The nice thing is that these mattresses are better than average when it comes to durability. Most customers are happy with their mattress for 5 to 7 years, but some who are heavy or use their mattress above average will find that their mattress is not as durable.
With brands doing lots of work on their online reputation, it's pretty hard for an average shopper to get to the bottom of customer satisfaction. That said, customers report feeling comfortable with these mattresses overall. However, there were some who didn't appreciate the feel. so look below to see if the mattress specifications will work for your body type!
Having a supportive mattress is a make or break for stomach and back sleepers. Side sleepers also need a supportive mattress that keeps their spine, hips, and shoulders aligned. These mattresses are above average when it comes to support. That being said, some customers didn't feel supported 100% of the time so if you are heavier, make sure to review the specifications.
Most customers like the support in the edges of these mattresses. Those that are heavier may find some dipping close to the edges.
These mattresses have mixed reviews on their durability. We all want to find a mattress that will be as cozy now as it was 10 years ago, but sadly, not all will support you for the long term. If you are thinking about buying a new mattress that isn't an A+ on durability, do one last review of the return and warranty policies so you are secure in your purchase.
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 ordered my bed through a local Savvy Rest store and had an incredible experience. Our contact at the store was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and helpful. I have been so happy with my purchase. I started a search for an organic bed and quickly landed on Savvy Rest. Prior to purchasing my new bed, I woke literally every morning with a backache as my prior bed was causing me issues. I no longer wake up with backaches and wake up refreshed. I've gone from dreading going to bed at night (as I was not comfortable and knew I'd wake up with a back ache starting at some point in the night) to now looking forward to going to bed every night - eager to get sleep - which is not something I've ever looked forward to doing! We ordered the three layer bed along with the platform for it. We kept the platform in the natural, unvarnished color so we could stain later if we chose to but it is so pretty as is (like a whitewash color) I don't know if I want to do that now. But it's the perfect height and was also a very happy purchase for us that I would recommend to others. I was a bit skeptical I'd like the platform foundation at first when I ordered it, but I love it as much as the bed. It's beautiful and creates the perfect height for the bed itself. I also ordered organic pillows - they are amazing! They are so comfortable! We also purchased an organic mattress protector to keep the mattress safe from our pets. I honestly can't say enough great things about our bed or our shopping experience with our amazing and wonderful consultant at the local store. I only wish I'd made this purchase sooner. Thank you, Savvy Rest and special thanks to our wonderful consultant at the local store!View More Reviews
Our sales person was just amazing! She was very patient, making and unmaking bed so we could try a lot of options! She gave us really good advice also. We love our mattress and knowing that they are all natural is so comforting!
My mattress shopping experience at Savvy Rest was wonderful! Great healthy product, superb informed courteous service, on time easy delivery, and best of all I am sleeping soundly for the first time in years- even through hot flashes. I highly recommend Savvy Rest natural latex mattresses!
Savvy Rest was the only place I could find this bed liner. I do think it is on the expensive side but I had already paid so much for my latex bed I figured it was just extra insurance. It is very durable looking and feeling.
It took many phone calls to many different people in order to finally get our delivery.
i am very happy with the customer service. Everyone has answered my questions and doubts. I liked that people had time for me and the store is not crowded and too full. The dog loves her bed and so do I love mine. The woman who delivered and set up the bed was also very helpful and kind.
Very good Company and good products. Follow up could be better and customer service should be a little more pro-active.
Delivery date had to be changed due to other work going on. The new delivery date was complicated by ice and the delivery guys were absolutely fabulous. This is our second purchase and we love Saavy Rest beds! Also, the new and improved foundation is terrific!
Satisfied with service! Mady at the store was great. Mattress is a little firmer than expected but we are getting used to it.
We couldn't be happier! We love the mattress but may love the people even more. We purchased from the Vienna store and dealt with three different people there. They couldn't have been more helpful in getting us into the right mattresses and pillows. And when there was a slight issue, it was handled with care and efficiency. The delivery guys were awesome as well and went above and beyond. We will definitely be singing the praises of SaavyRest. Thank you.
The order was shipped promptly, and communication about the order and shipment instructions were clear and timely.
The online purchase was pretty straight forward. I like the product. However, when the bed arrived the box it came in was soiled and disintegrated. Their appeared to be oil on the outer box. Luckily the plastic bag around the mattress kept intact. I'm not sure what happened but I was rather disappointed because I wanted to keep the box for future shipping.
Staff at the retail store were very patient, helpful and knowledgeable. We didn't feel pressure to buy right away, and that was greatly appreciated given the cost of the item. We switched out the top layer from a soft to medium right away. This did take a little longer than expected, and there seemed to be some confusion about getting in touch with us when the new layer was available to pick up at the store. Overall great experience, and it seems like a well made, high quality product. Thank you.
I am a repeat customer of savvyrest.com. After personal assistance with my first mattress purchase from Dominick because my brother lives in Charlottesville and is friends with him, I now feel comfortable ordering straight from the website, where I've purchased a second queen mattress for a guest room and a baby mattress. I haven't had any issues whatsoever, everything has shipped perfectly up to Maine and the products are just exactly as they are described or shown on videos on the website. I am completely confident in every purchase I make and recommend savvyrest.com highly.
My husband and I purchased the Savvy Rest Esmont Platform Bed. It arrived earlier than expected, and it was carefully packaged. We were very impressed at the craftsmanship and attention to detail. It was a joy to assemble. We had no problems. We are very pleased with the bed. We also purchased two cotton mattress covers and two wool mattress covers which also seem great so far.
No pushy sales people. I had a budget, they gave me the information and I made my decision. Approx 28 nights AND I LOVE my savvy rest! [I even referenced a friend to verify the 'natural' aspect - passed]
Overall we had a great experience and recommend them to anyone.
The staff at Savvy Rest was courteous and helpful. All our questions were answered and I did not feel we were getting a "sales pitch." I liked the layer exchange policy and have used it with no problem. The goal of Savvy Rest is to ensure we are completely satisfied.
I love your product line and your employees seem to proud and invested in your firm's business. It's refreshing to interface with someone who understand the business relationship between provider and customer. Bravo, Arlene
My wife did extensive research, and your very knowledgeable store representative (Lay Lwin Htun )confirmed that research. She used no pressure to complete a sale, and she was extremely informative relative to sale conditions and options. We are most satisfied with your product... well worth the extra $$$.
Very comfortable bed. Online videos very very helpful in showing how to assemble the bed. Was able to assembly myself in about 20 minutes from boxes to completed bed.
This is our second mattress purchase for another room. Very pleased
We visited the store twice after conducting research online. Both visits were very helpful and productive in learning more about the product. We were able to try various configurations of the bed, and learned about the materials and compositions used in making the bed. No pressure to buy.
In my life, I have truly never experienced customer service at this level. We have loved our bed for 9 years, but noticed that there were some problems with the latex. With my parents having the same bed bought around the same time, we could see something had happened to ours that seemed wrong. I contacted customer service and spoke to a lovely person who requested I sent pictures. After very easy communication back and forth they 100% stood by their warranty on the bed and are fully replacing it. It was clearly a flaw in their manufacturing and they were apologetic. Not only is this bed natural, sustainable and good to sleep on, but the company behind it has integrity that is hard to find. I am a loyal customer for life.
overall we are happy with the mattress, several weeks ago I had emailed about a broken zipper on the Kpock pillow case, and no one ever got back with me. I got the sense that since it was not a big deal for you, why bother with me, tho we are a farely new customer, hopefully it was just a simple glitch and someone will email me back with the appropriate action
We love our mattress. We couldn't be happier with it. Our only complaint in the process is that we finally had to call and ask about scheduling a delivery because we never were contacted as we had been promised. I think someone was out sick in the office so we fell through the cracks. Otherwise the process was great!
Great knowledgeable sales staff. Great flexibility in changing delivery date to a later date because our house closing was delayed.
Friendly, relaxed shopping environment. This is our second bed in 4 years and we love them both! Nice selection.
My mattress is very uncomfortable and it was very difficult to assemble
The Savvy Rest showroom was excellent, providing models of the various mattress configurations for customers to assess. The sales staff member with whom we worked was professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and very tolerant of our many questions and apprehensions related to purchasing a new mattress. Because we have an antique bed, this required a custom-sized mattress, which turned out perfectly.
For some reason the savvy doggy page was hard to find on the main website. I would have to go back to the main search engine (google) and type in that specifically, rather than easily finding it on the savvy rest website.
I only purchased samples but I am glad you offer those. I have multiple chemicals sensitivity & it's important to test for tolerance before purchasing.
I think you should have provided a print out of the configuration I ordered and had it included with the delivery. I had ppl install for me and they had no idea... It would have saved some last minute texts/email communications on my end.
Shopping experience was excellent; the in-store staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The delivery staff were on-time, friendly, knowledgable and skilled. They managed to remove our existing king size mattress and box spring down a very narrow staircase without damaging the walls at all. When there was an issue with top mattress layers separating on our king size mattress, the store staff and the delivery staff worked together with us to quickly remedy the problem.
We have THREE Savvy Rest mattresses and we LOVE them!!! They have improved our sleep quality and our health! I recommend Savvy Rest to everyone!
The Serenity bed was easy to assemble and has proven to be very comfortable. I would definitely recommend it to others
Overall, our experience was good. However, there was an unnecessary ordering delay to receive a replacement latex layer to change the comfort level of the bed. The delivery service was outstanding.
Pretty simple...placed an order, it shipped quickly. An item was missing from the initial order, called customer service, rectified immediately and they shipped the item out overnight, which was totally unnecessary but appreciated! Awesome company to order from, good folks working there, and am sleeping better because of it. Thanks!!!
We have purchased a full size 100% Talalay mattress previously and love it! We are interested in the future purchase of a queen size mattress as well. Bernardo is a wonderful salesman in the Rockville store and is so very patient and understanding of any questions or issues that we can think of! He is an absolute asset to Saavy Rest and any customers who need help with their purchase! We will always feel we can call him and that he will take care of us! We have had a Saavy Rest mattress for over 1 year and it's still like brand new! It is a more superior mattress than we were used to and we are looking forward to having another one for our other bedroom. We would recommend Saavy Rest and Bernardo to anyone who wants a better night's sleep and a salesman who knows the product and cares about what he sells you. Thank You Bernardo and we wouldn't go anywhere else!!!
Everyone we worked with at the Berkeley store for our mattress buying experience was helpful, informative, and pleasant. Very positive experience!
