Eclipse offers a variety of pocketed coil mattresses that feature thick layers of memory foam. Since 1905, they have innovated their mattresses and brought them to market at a competitive pricepoint versus many retail offerings. Though customers find their products mostly comfortable at first, there are some customers that reported durability issues.
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.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Eclipse in this match up!

If you are thinking about this one, do more research below to learn if this mattress will work for you. They, sadly, get some low reviews from customers. Some folks were very comfy in their new beds, but others reported discomfort with the feel.
In terms of having support long term, these mattresses get mixed reviews. Some customers feel comfortable and well supported, but others had problems getting comfortable. If you have a heavier body type than average, you may want to do additional research to make sure these mattresses will work for you
Edge support is a key item for anyone that likes to sit on the side of their mattress. Some may not find these mattresses to be evenly supportive along the sides and may dip more than usual.
These mattresses may not be as durable over the long term as you'd expect. Over a shorter than average time period, some sleepers have had issues with durability and feel. If you would consider yourself larger or looking for something with lasting support, these mattresses may comfort you initially, but make sure to do some more research before buying.
Some sleepers are comfortable with their new beds, but others were not as satisfied with how the mattress made them feel. Despite those that are happy with their selection, this brand has lower satisfaction scores than average. Research on below for more specifics on whether this mattress will work for you.
Support isn't equal to firmness. Good support means that it lines up your back and spine -- leading to a healthier night sleep. Unfortunately, these mattresses have some mixed reception when it comes to support. Most find that they provide a good amount of support at the beginning, but some folks felt like support was lacking over the long term.
For those that like the lay close to the side of their mattress or have mobility issues, even edge support is very important. At first, these mattresses do a good job with edge support, but some had complaints that edge support wasn't all it could be long term.
Sleepers note that durability is one of the most important factors to them. We are all hopeful to find a mattress that would be just as comfortable day one as it is 10 years from now. However, these mattresses are not rated well by some reviewers on durability and some have experienced breakdown after only a short time. If you are considering using as your full time mattress, read through the customer reviews and return policies to make sure that you are secure in your purchase.
Me and the wife are sleeping well since we bought one of these. We were happy with the eco-friendly score and the low impact on the environment. It's a pretty decent bed. Not a lot of tossing and turning, but still wake up sometimes in the night. May just be me.View More Reviews
Tried to love this mattress after the salesperson told me it was going to be the best thing I ever sleep on. However, kinda dissapointed because it doesn't feel quite right for me. I am a bit heavier and am a side sleeper so it could just be that the bed doesn't fit me.
Meh is all I really have to say. Don't hate it, don't love. After seeing more reviews on things people love, I feel like I should have bought something else. But, at least I don't hate it.
I'm a back sleeper and pretty light -- I definely love my bed. I put on the comfy comforter over it and it immediately welcomes me to it every time I come home from work. It is becoming a part of me and my cat loves it too!
My wife conviced me to get a new bed for the holidays and so it was our big gift this year. She loves it so I'm happy. For me, it's just okay -- I don't really notice the difference between it and the old IKEA bed that we had that suited me just fine.
The Eclipse gel memory foam mattress is really nice on my back. I sleep through the whole night now and don't have any complaints about anything. Feeling rested.
Great but after 3 months it seems to have developed a sag where I sleep. It definitely seems like a defect in the foam because I haven't had this for that long. I am definitely going to see if I can work with the seller.
I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud for the first few months, but now there is a noticeable dent where I sleep. I am starting to rotate the bed after only a couple months!!!
Finally sleeping good after buying this mattress. I was sleeping on an old coil mattress that hurt my back over the years and this one is finally putting me at ease. Love it!
Really pleased with my new Eclipse mattress. No complaints.
If I could survive on 3 hours sleep each night, this mattress would be fine..... BUT I CAN'T!
I have purchased a Ortho Care Mattress which is very nice & comfortable.Main thing is that my father had a problem on his spinal cord after using this product he felt very well...
great mattress.very comfortable. Really its a value for money mattress
Princeton double bed mattress purchased on 08/11/2019 from My Home , Green Park , New Delhi has developed problems . Its springs are making noise while sitting or sleeping or as soon as some pressure is applied on the mattress and springs can be felt thru the foam covering. A very bad experience for a consumer given to believe he is buying the best mattress in the world. Complaint was lodged with the shopkeeper and subsequently Mr Akhtar ( 9818147219) visited on 18/12/2019 and acknowledged the problem saying there is some manufacturing defect but despite 2 weeks of lodging a complaint , no subsequent action has taken place.
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.
went thru 3 of their mattresses all of which bellied within months and had to be replaced. Now on a fourth non pillowtop which may be doing the same thing. had previously owned shifman for years with outstanding performance but they seem to have changed their design to allow the mattress to bend for mechanical beds. we’ll see haw the “tradition” model holds up.
