At first, I was skeptical about memory foam. We have been using a pillow top mattress for years, and seldom used anything else. Me and my husband have consequently been suffering from back pain for years, and realized a change was long overdue. When we received the mattress, it was rolled up and vacuum sealed in a box, so my first impression was that it would be too thin to fit our bed. But, after removing the plastic wrap and waiting not even 10 minutes, it expanded tremendously, and was very entertaining for my children. I initially thought that the mattress would be too soft for us, but the bed contains just enough firmness to be comfortable, yet just enough softness to create envy from my family whenever they sit on it (which is very often!). After the first week in years with much less back pains and a full nights sleep, we knew that we'd never look back. This is a mattress that pays for itself, and a purchase that will not be wished away. I highly recommend Cocoon by Sealy. 5 stars all around!View More Reviews
I was a bit skeptical about the new Cocoon mattress. However, my initial impression changed when we started unpacking the mattress. First, it was very easy to unpack and set-up. It's compact and slid out of the box easily and was easy to unroll onto the box spring. It took a minute to find out where to rip the plastic exterior bag but once we did that we were in business. It was much easier to get out of the bag and into place than the previous mattresses; it just isn't as bulky or doesn't seem as heavy as traditional mattresses. The mattress is a bit thinner than our previous mattress but I haven't found that to matter. I don't think it really requires the extra deep sheets to cover it even though that is what we used on it. I prefer a bit of a softer mattress and my husband prefers the opposite. However, I find sometimes with soft mattresses that they are too soft to the point where if you are on the edge of the bed, you feel like the mattress will collapse. In this case, I ordered the soft mattress hoping it would work out and have been very happy with it. The top of the mattress is like memory foam which makes it fit my need for a soft mattress but the under part is firmer which gives the support of a firm mattress and makes the mattress feel seem more stable. I'm not sure how this will last long term but for now it is quite nice. The mattress incredibly comfortable to sleep on and I have found that I can't feel the other person if they roll around in the bed. This isn't always something I have experienced with other mattresses and so have really appreciated that quiet feeling. Overall, this mattress has made for some great sleeping and I would definitely purchase it for other bedrooms in our house.
I'm used to big, bulky mattresses. The Cocoon is much lighter. I used to sleep on a pillow top. The Cocoon is even softer. I feel so cradled in it.
I like the mattress. I feel great in the morning but I prefer more firmer than the current one. Sealy made good mattresses for over decades. The texture and the thickness makes you feel comfortable when you sleep. I would recommend for anyone who's looking to sleep tight at night. If you are super heavy person this mattress is not for you.
The only thing that I would say is that the soft mattress is really a medium. I would have preferred an actual soft mattress, but this one isn't a bad mattress and we are sleeping much better on this new mattress than our old one.
Nice and comfortable- came on time and setup easily
It's pretty nice.
I like the idea of the bed in a box. I was very excited about trying the Sealy Cocoon Mattress. The box was extremely heavy, but it was well packed and easy to set up. The bed is surprisingly soft and comfortable.
I've been sleeping on my new mattress for a week. I purchased a firm mattress and can feel a wonderful difference in my body. I suffer from low back and hip pain. I've woken up each morning pain free. Two thumbs up!! I want to purchase a second one for my daughter so I'm hoping Sealy will offer me a returning customer discount.
WE GOT THE FIRM MATTRESS AND WERE A LITTLE SKEPTICAL BECAUSE IT WAS A LITTLE SOFT ON TOP...BUT WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED....VERY COMFORTABLE.....WE LOVE IT !
I've been sleeping on my new Cocoon mattress, and I think its been helping me sleep better than I have in a long time! The mattress came in a box and seemed very 'small' at first glance. Once we opened the box up onto our bed, it expanded into a full size mattress within a few minutes. The first night the mattress was way too firm for our liking, but I realize that mattresses (memory foam in general) need to be broken in. After a couple of days of sleeping on the Cocoon, I've been sleeping harder, and with much less movement than I normally do. I also can feel the movement of my sleeping partner significantly less than my previous, non- memory foam mattress. I haven't noticed being particularly cool or warm while sleeping yet, but my husband has mentioned that he felt it was cool for a foam mattress. All of this has definitely helped me sleep very well since I got it!
I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5, because the depth of the mattress is a bit more thin than I prefer. Now my nightstands seem too high! Also, I like to read in bed and it still seems a bit firm to really do that comfortably, but that might change with some more time. Other than that, so far, we like it more than our old mattress!
It was amazing to think a mattress could form from the pad that was mailed to us! As we cut the plastic away the foam raised up to form a bed. That got everyone in the household excited. The concept is great. We are used to sleeping on a regular spring mattress with a thick 3-4 inch foam pad on top. The Cocoon, at first, was hard and took some time to get used to. We have only slept on it for a week and the paperwork that comes with the bed says to give it 100 days. I am starting to like it. The Cocoon seems to form into your badyshape and actually support you. My husband sweats alot during his sleep and usually always has to kick the blackets off during the night, he says that since we have been sleeping on the Cocoon, he is more comfortable tempurature wise. What is also nice is that not being a spring matress it does not move as much when your sleeping partner moves or gets up. My Husband and I have different schedules, so this helps tremendously, so we are both not bothered when the other gets up. This is by no means a luxouriuos mattress, but it is starting to grow on us.
Absolutely awful. Also note that buying through amazon means 30 day return, not 100 day return. Mattress is terribly hard. Eve sent a mattress pad which did not improve the experience. But by the time you get a pad and try...your 30 days is over. Just a terrible experience all the way around. Buy your mattress in the store, where you can try it out.View More Reviews
We got two, for a split king adjustable frame. The mattress is loved by my spouse and to me, a bit too firm. Therefore, the old topper is back on it.
Way too soft. Not sure how the other reviewers found this mattress firm. Had to return.
Really unsure about how to leave this review within the Amazon scoring system, as the packaging, delivery and everything about the Eve mattress from a looks perspective was great, it was just the feel that was a bit off for my wife and I.
The material, memory foam, definitely has a connotation with it, and you think it'll be a lot softer than it turns out to be, but in fact it's actually a pretty firm mattress. I read some reviews that talked about this and because the positives were outweighing the negatives, we decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, the mattress just wasn't comfortable for us. My wife even slept on the couch because she was so uncomfortable halfway through the night.
And it's a not a knock on the mattress, since choosing one is a very person-specific thing. You do just take a big chance that it will work when you buy one like this without testing it out in person.
Oh and the hassle free return that they talk about in the listing on Amazon, as well as on the Eve site, is not entirely the same. The Eve site policy, where they will send a crew to remove the mattress from your house, you have 100 days trial, doesn't apply if you buy on Amazon. UPS will come and pick it up free of charge, trial period is 30 days. So, it's the same, but just a little different for those that want to know.
The bed was too soft for me and I ended up returning it. However, I loved the concept of how Eve works and the fantastic customer service. True to their word, I was able to return the bed, hassle-free, at no additional cost. They made it super simple and easy!
I tend to like very firm mattresses, and this one, although probably firmer than many beds, made me feel like I was sinking, and practically rolling off the sides of the bed. Even with such softness, they could use more sturdy "edge seams" that don't make you feel like you're going to fall off the edge.
4 stars for great customer service and for what would probably be a great bed for most folks. Just didn't work for me.
I opened the plastic package of my twin size Eve mattress yesterday noon and let it sit flat (the foam layer facing up) in my living room over night to let the smell go away. Since it still smells this morning when I woke up, so I decided to unzip the cover the expose the foam and hopping the smell can run faster. Then I was shocked when I saw the "2 inch foam layer" was actually only 0.5" inch thick. Since it is too thin, so I used a cm ruler to measure it and took a picture.
I thought Eve mattress is a high end mattress. But this kind of thickness of memory foam could not even be seen on the low quality memory foam mattress. I am very upset. I would certainly ask Amazon for a refund and move the bulky thing away from my home.
Only about 3 weeks in, but sleeps incredibly. This was my first experience with a non-spring mattress and I have been incredibly pleased. It takes me very little time to fall asleep now as opposed to previously it would take about 30 minutes of turning back and forth before I would fall asleep. Highly recommended!
We tried multiple traditional spring mattress for years and within a short period of time they began to snag and become uncomfortable. We looked at the price of the Temper Pedic and were not interested in spending $3K on bed even if it did last 10 years.
We spent a few days researching and came across this bed a few other foam mattress similar to this one. Within the next few days - we get a GoldBox email for this mattress for $800 for a King. A bit cheaper than normal. We knew about the return policy and decided to try it out.
We love it. We are on month 3. No indications. The bed is always comfortable no matter where you lay. Yes it is firm so you have to like this kind of bed. I am 6'5" and 235 my wife is a foot shorter and about half my weight. So finding a mattress bed fitting both of us was a struggle to begin with. The foam mattress was the solution to this.
Coming from a furniture store value spring mattress, this is like sleeping on a cloud. No noise and plenty forgiving in the first inch or two, which allows my body to be relatively comfortable no matter how I insist on contorting myself in my sleep. Due to the smell from either manufacture or packaging, I would recommend opening the package and letting the mattress air out for a day or two. Better yet, open a window and/or get a fan to put more air over it.
I rarely write reviews--and when I do, they are rarely positive. But my experience with Eve has been amazing! I have to share it. First, I love my new mattress--firm, yet soft. With my old coil spring mattress I was awake most of the night, tossing and turning to relieve pressure on my hips, on my arms and shoulders. But more than the mattress, I love the customer service provided by Eve. I wrote the company regarding some concerns regarding my mattress shortly after it arrived. Rebecca responded to my email in just a few hours--and within days, a new mattress arrived at my front door. Eve rocks!
After 10 straight years of waking up every morning with shooting pain all the way down my spine after two failed back surgeries, I thought it was impossible to find a mattress that would relieve even a small percentage of my pain. The California King size of The Eve was too firm for me and I considered a return however Nick offered and subsequently shipped me a softer topper that fits directly on top of the mattress and ever since then I have been pain-free when I wake up in the morning. It's almost like a dream and I have to remember that I used to wake up in the morning with pain that can bring me to my knees. This mattress is a godsend and anyone with a bad back should absolutely try this mattress. In addition to the product, the team of people are the most kind and generous people I have ever encountered in a company in my life! Thank you Nick and "all my fellow looney tune" friends at The Eve!
Best nights sleep since I received this mattress. Could not be happier with this purchase
Wasn't for me as it hurt my arm. Wife loved it. They returned it very easily
