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 waited far too long to buy a new mattress, but the Tuck is incredible, my wife and I have never slept better!View More Reviews
My mattress was perfect — not too soft, I guess the springs ensured my body never sunk in uncomfortably like with a tempur pedic, but not too firm either, which made it much more comfortable than my previous mattress. Highly recommend!
We have had it now for 6 months. It is the most comfortable mattress we have ever owned. The support is wonderful. Both my husband and I are getting the best night sleep we have had in years. My husband has suffered with back pain on and off for years and with the Tuck there has not been an issue with his back. We Love Our Tuck!!!
We spend a third of our lives in bed. I should have placed a higher emphasis on my mattress quality. Thankfully, I now have a Tuck. The comfort and custimization combine to make this a truly wonderful mattress!
I found this company after reading something about how they use recycled water bottles in the mattress. Never heard of such a thing, but I try to eat/shop/live natural, so seemed like a good fit. I had a friend help me carry it up to the second floor of my place, and we had fun getting it set up. I would have given it five stars, but it took nearly a week to ship. I know each mattress is built upon order, but I'm just used to Amazon Prime timing (probably my fault), but I'm sleeping much better with it than my old mattress.
Roughly ten years ago I wasted a Saturday with my wife at the mall laying down on probably 30 mattresses, and missing college football. After probably three 'tests' they all blended together for me. Frankly, I dreaded having to go through that process again. This time around, we now all have the option of ordering a mattress online. Wife was a bit hesitant, but the sleep test that Tuck uses allowed us to get what is best for us on each side of the bed, and she was sold. Make no mistake, this thing is heavy, but once set up, we have been sleeping great, and I won't have to miss an important football game again!
I went through a lot of mattresses trying to find something I could share with my husband. Because we're very different sizes, the mattresses I liked best left him with back pain in the morning, while the mattresses he preferred were so firm that I couldn't get to sleep on them. Getting to customize our own sides of the mattress changed the game. Finally, neither of us is waking up aches and pains in the morning.
To be fair, my last mattress was $200 and is 8 years old, but the Tuck mattress is soooo much better. Like 10x what I was sleeping on before. Not only am I sleeping better, waking up refreshed and without stiff neck, but anytime I have an "overnight visitor", they never want to leave because they keep saying how fantastic my mattress feels! I'd like to take credit for most of that sentiment, but in reality it's probably my Tuck bed. Oh, and I really appreciated the support I got when I was trying to build my custom mattress. They were quick to jump on my question and helped make buying a mattress easy. Kudos!
I decided to purchase a Tuck bed in July. Since then, I have had the best sleep of my life and I mean that. Being able to customize a mattress to my needs was a huge plus for me. After consulting my S.O. we decided to go with the blended option. I can't express how great our Tuck has been. We adjusted accordingly and sleep like babies. My favorite feature is the cooling. I run so hot at night and since our Tuck I haven't woken up sweating. You can't go wrong with a mattress built just for you!
I replaced a relatively new, expensive, sagging mattress with this one and I have been very impressed. It is very comfortable, supportive and cool. My husband and I no longer roll towards the center and the edge is also very firm. Plus, it was very entertaining to watch it expand from the packaging into a queen bed. AMAZING!
Great support yet plush. There is no rolling side to side to find a cozy comfy spot - it’s just all evenly-dispersed goodness. Other mattresses left me feeling strained or unsupported. Now I have total body relief. This mattress has changed the way I feel when I wake up. I fall asleep immediately and wake up well-rested and refreshed. Best sleep of my life!
I was at my daughter’s home taking care of my Grandsons for several days and experienced a "Tuck" mattress. I asked my daughter what brand of mattress I was sleeping on and where could I purchase it? She told me it was a Tuck mattress and it comes in a box directly to your house. I am in my 60’s and old school about trying out a mattress in a store but NO MORE! I can’t say enough about this mattress. I usually wake up several times a night and have a hard time getting comfortable and falling back to sleep. I slept through the night and got up without the usual sore back and stiff muscles.
My husband and I had a great sleep on this mattress in my sister’s guest room. It was extremely comfortable, with the right amount of firmness, and we didn’t wake up once. I’m counting the minutes until ours arrives.
The new mattress in my daughter’s guest room was great! We felt strong support from the memory coil system, yet it was comfortable and not too soft. My husband’s bad back and knees felt good both mornings we woke up at their house! We will be customizing our own this week.
This mattress was one of the most comfortable mattresses I have ever slept on. Normally, getting out of bed is a chore for me since I am so groggy in the mornings. After sleeping on this, I feel energized and ready to start my days. Even, after a night on the town I woke up feeling amazing. Does this bed cure hangovers? Who knows! But I like to think so…
I always questioned a mattress that comes in a box. When a friend highly recommended I try Tuck vs. other companies like Casper, I figured I’d give it a shot. It was the best decision I’ve ever made! The mattress arrived exactly when it said it would. Setup couldn’t have been easier- especially living in a condo in the city. The last mattress I bought from a store the delivery people arrived two hours late, brought the wrong sized box spring and broke a picture while bringing it into the condo. This process was SO much easier! My husband and I both love how comfortable it is and the quality couldn’t be better! We will be ordering another one for our guest room.
If you’re an individual like me who is dealing with a sacroiliac joint issues, this mattress is very conducive to dealing with this condition. The firmness of this mattress allows one of full night sleep.
