Doze is a 2 layer gel infused foam mattress. Their claim to fame is affordable simplicity -- the simplicity of the mattress, checkout experience, and the low cost of the mattress make it an offer that is hard to pass up. With a good reception from average customers, the Doze mattress is definitely a brand to consider.
Shifman is a handmade luxury mattress brand that has been around since the last 1800s and has a legacy of elegant design and is found in mattress retailers and at Bloomingdales. Their mattresses are very high priced, usually well over $5,000 to start. Though they are a status symbol for some and boast hand craftsmanship, there are those that find that they provide a bad value for the materials used.

That said, some with heavier bodies may experience a slight decrease in durability.

Edge support is an important attribute for those that like to sit on the side of the mattress without discomfort. Some may find that the edge support in these mattresses is not as robust as others.
Sadly, not everyone rates these mattresses well for longevity. While some folks had good experiences with the performance, others describe problems with comfort over a short time. Make sure to do some extra research on the reviews and specifications before buying.
Most comfy bed I've slept on. I hadn't been having dreams recently, but ever since getting my new Doze a month ago, I've been having the best dreams. The mattress was super easy to set up and their customer service was stellar! Highly recommend :)View More Reviews
Even though i immediately think the bed is comfortable, I hate to say that i think it’s hurting my low back a lot...
When I decided to move I thought buying a new mattress would be a pain - but I was wrong! The Doze mattress arrived quickly, is super comfortable and, most importantly, it was affordable! Thank you for making one aspect of my move less stressful :)
Kids are loving their new mattress. Great service, quick delivery, great customer service
Too soft , unfortunately. Looking to return it
I can't imagine life without my doze. You'd be crazy not to get one
The mattress shipped on time and set up was easy. The mattress itself is sturdy and comfortable. I recommend Doze to anyone that likes sleeping.
Getting this mattress was a breeze, I love the idea and wish I loved the mattress, but it is very soft. Would totally recommend if there was a firm option!
Great service and great product!!
The most comfortable bed ever! I feel so rested in the morning now, which I appreciate because I'm a nurse and I need my ZZZ's. I will most definitely keep recommending this mattress to my friends and family. I am not at all disappointed my decision to choose Doze!
Really soft mattress, love how easy it was to set up and how it easy it was to order!
Before getting my Doze mattress, I was between sleeping on a couch or sleeping on a twin bed that was stiff as a board. Sleeping wasn't easy, but getting up was. Now with my Doze, I have to set a few alarms. It's just so comfortable, its hard to get out of bed. I love it.
We have loved our Doze bed! Very comfortable and timely delivery. Using it on top of a box spring and works well.
I would highly recommend a Doze Bed to anyone and everyone! I purchased a king size bed in the past and loved it so much that we recently just purchased a full size for my 3 year old. Not only is the mattress pure bliss to sleep on, the customer service was outstanding and it was delivered super fast. Thank you Doze!!!
So far so good! Sleeping great!!
I'm a real cheapskate - a "use the tea bag twice" or "shower at the gym to cut the water bill" kinda guy. So buying a fancy mattress was a tough call for me. But I was convinced by the argument that I spend 1/3 of my life on the thing, so I went for it. It has been well worth it. It's definitely on the soft end, and it definitely makes the AM bed departure a little slower (pleasantly so), but I am sleeping very well. Definitely an investment I'm happy to make, from a company I am happy to support!
Easily one of the best investments I've made. Totally reasonable price for a great comfy mattress.
I never slept as good as I am now with a Doze mattress. It got delivered within 4 days and securely packaged to prevent damaged.
Bed is so comfortable effortless night sleep. So glad I bought this bed
I ordered a full size mattress that arrived with a small defect. I contacted Doze and they asked me to send photos of the defected mattress and quickly explained what the issue was. Doze was friendly and apologized for the inconvenience and immediately shipped me a new mattress. I now have my new bed and consequently do not want to leave it, ever… I look forward to going to bed knowing that I get to sleep on this mattress.
Wow! I've been sleeping like a baby! I've had the mattress for about a month now and could not be happier. I was a little worried when I saw it was memory foam, as I had tried adding a mattress topper to my old bed, but this is WAY better. The support mattress portion is great and sturdy enough for great sleep!
Waking up in the morning is super easy now because I feel so refreshed every night. Getting out of bed, not as easy!
I bought my first Shifman Mattress in Bloomdales in 2001. It lasted me over ten years and was only tossed out due to the impossibility of getting such a heavy, well-made mattress down my third floor tenement stairs. I switched brands to my regret and have never gotten the good night's sleep I had with my Shifman. I can't even turn the mattress over because it is a one-sided mattress, something I was unaware of. When this one bites the dust, I'm returning to Shifman. It is a costly product and worth every cent.View More Reviews
I am extremely disappointed with the performance of our Shifman mattress but even more disappointed with their customer service. We purchased a king pillow top mattress 20 months ago. Within a few months, large depressions began to form on each side of the bed. I called the store and was told to turn it more frequently than the once per month recommended by the manufacturer. I followed instructions and the depressions worsened. It felt as if we were sleeping in a trough with hills on either side! I contacted Shifman and received no response. I then contacted the store where we purchased the bed. They sent out a representative as well as the Shifman rep. The Shifman rep told us this was normal and we should turn the bed 90 degrees and sleep on the short axis for a month or so until the middle of the bed compresses. He never touched the bed or took any measurements to judge the depth of the depressions. Bottom line.....they will do nothing to correct the situation. Shifman has a 10 year non-prorated warranty but, clearly, they don't stand by their product. My only hope, at this point, is that the furniture store has a higher ethical standard and will make this right. Lesson learned- price is not a predictor of quality.
$4,500 for a queen size mattress and foundation and a back ache every morning! When I called their customer service, the response was (1) it was my fault because the mattress had not gotten used to me yet (after five months?) and (2) what do you want us to do about it? Then, she hung up. A second call was even worse. Someone who said she was Eileen screamed when I protested about the first call and said 'I can put you on hold' before hanging up. The crudest, rudest people I have ever encountered in business. Needless to say, their creation is out of my house, and none will ever return.
A good nights sleep is of utmost importance! I've bought Shifman mattresses in the past and although they are bit pricey, they are top quality, comfortable and well worth the cost...you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Shifman Mattresses!!!!
We have been had 5 different beds in 16 years. This is the first bed that is so comfortable and supportive that we are getting the best sleep we ever had.
I'm awake bc a "fell in a slope" in my 4 month mattress. Stickley stands by there low quality product. Maybe Shifman Mattresses does too....
Wow Shifman Mattresses Your refusal to uphold the warranty of your product is quite disappointing. For a product that is so expensive and allegedly so high quality I would expect more from the manufacturer!
Had my first night's sleep on my new Shifman.. It was incredible! Thanks to the amazing artisans!
I was tired of low quality mattresses and wanted a mattress that could be turned. Research led me to Shifman. The problem is it is too heavy to turnover. Even when my son helps me it is too heavy. Whats the point of having a two sided mattress if its not realistic to turn it. Big grooves develope even when you rotate it. I gave 3 stars because its made relatively well but for the money spent I'll just get a regular new mattress every 5 years.
