Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Popular among readers, the bowling ball test gives a good reading on mattress firmness and evenness of support. If a mattress has lumpy support, then there is a big problem. However, these mattresses do a good job providing even support for sleepers.
Finding a mattress that is durable is critical to mattress shoppers. However, with brands fighting over profits, it isn't always a clear story for customers. That said, with great data on material quality, craftsmanship, and customers feedback, these mattresses should do well with longevity and last more than 5 years for most sleepers. But, some heavier in body type sleepers may find them to be slightly less durable.
I am very happy with the purchase. I have been sleeping on this mattress more than a month and now i can give 5 stars . The mattress is mild firm exactly i was looking for and finally i can get a good sleep. Thank youView More Reviews
I really like my new mattress its perfect for me ,it came well packaged and easy to open , I let it set 3hrs then put it on the bed...
It gave us quite a laugh to see the box--which was small considering what was in it. The mattress is all that I expected--however, my old bed frame is about 3 inches too short in width. No matter, it's not noticeable and I just let it hang over. I guess mattresses have gotten bigger since my bed was made some 50 years ago.
There are numerous so-called memory foam mattress makers out there. Tempur-pedic is the original and the name tells you a little bit more about the product. First, the foam doesn't remember how you last slept in it. Your sleep imprint is gone very quickly. Second, the foam DOES react to your body temperature in creating your sleep imprint and the mattresses do feel warmer than standard mattresses - not a bad thing in the winter if you live in a cold climate! More of these are being made to allow air to circulate around your body via the mattress covers that are put on and how they "breathe." Many people in their reviews say they've bought a foam mattress topper to help keep them cooler.
Okay, to this Enso product specifically. First, most people will complain about a smell emanating from these when they are first unrolled from the plastic wrap that they are rolled in when delivered. It's natural that the gas from the foam does this. The good thing about the Enso product is that they use some charcoal filtering to help with that. In our case, we purchased the Enso Dreameaver at a local furniture store 10 weeks ago for $525. Brought it home since it's a mattress-in-a-box and laid it out in a different bedroom to flatten out and air. While there was some odor initially, we put the mattress on our existing boxspring/foundation that same evening. There was virtually NO smell and the mattress was just fine without buying a foundation.
We had a 12-year-old Simmons extra firm mattress that was beginning to feel 'harder' to us. This mattress has a good medium firmness and, despite trepidation about how we'd sleep, it has lived up to its billing and reflects what many reviewers say about moving from boxspring to memory foam. We have fewer aches and pains. I'm a side sleeper and my spine does align better and the achiness I often had with my shoulder and neck areas has been considerably minimized.
I tried out numerous memory foam and latex mattresses in department stores, discount mattress shops and mattress specialty stores. There are differences depending on the mattress maker, the thickness of the mattress and your own sleep comfort preference. At the end of the day, we bought a mattress that we thought would suit our sleeping styles, if you will. I should note that my wife commented that I snore less than on the old box spring - another point made by reviewers.
If you're in the market for a memory foam mattress, seriously consider an Enso product - unbelievably good price for the quality!
Bought this mattress because my husband and I were actually in a double, spring-mattressed bed, and as much as I love him-- he rolls around in his sleep and I was getting fewer good nights' sleep and felt squished (did I mention he kicks in his sleep?). The old mattress (a Serta) was fine, but it didn't suit the two of us as it had the one of me. We took the plunge and bought a bedroom set with a queen-sized bed, like grown-ups. :) So, then it was time for a mattress. Since "memory-foam" was one of the newer choices and neither of us had slept on one, it intrigued us. I researched and found that they can sometimes have a weird initial chemical or rubber smell (which makes sense), and can run "hot" if you are a naturally warmer person, temperature-wise. So with those two concerns in mind, I stumbled across the Enso mattress collection at a local furniture retailer. The gel topper was a great thing-- took care of the "running hot" issue for the most part-- I don't run that warm and when I do, honestly, I just sleep on top of the sheets with a cotton blanket. We do have a ceiling fan that I was running on low when we bought the mattress (it was summertime); however, I truly didn't notice much of a smell at all from it.
I will say that for fall / winter, I did buy a flannel duvet cover, hypoallergenic duvet, and mattress topper (yes another)-- and while I have THE MOST comfortable bed around, it gets hot, but mostly from the flannel / duvet. We are only in Virginia, after all...many winter days in the 40-50s. If I lived in Minnesota, for example, I'd probably throw flannel sheets on there and another quilt (hate being cold).
We've had the Enso mattress for about a year now, and it has softened up a bit. If you like a firm-yet-soft mattress and don't need something springy or super-giving (like an old "grandma's feather bed" feeling), you'll like this. If you like your mattresses firm, know that gel / foam mattresses do tend to soften up over time (something the saleslady reminded us), so go up in initial firmness.
We recently came back from a long weekend at a cabin where the bed used to be our absolute FAVORITE; all we ever talked about was how comfortable the beds were...guess what? They didn't hold a candle to our Enso mattress....we've gotten spoiled. ;o)
I bought the ENSO Dreamweaver from a local furniture store. We had an almost new, over $1000, mattress from one of the big name mattress stores. I was waking up several times a night with shoulder aches, hip aches, etc. When I got up in the morning, it took me several minutes to unkink, stand up straight and walk without pain. I researched and purchased the Dreamweaver and moved the more expensive mattress to our guest room. WOW! The very first morning I popped right out of bed with no pain or stiffness and I slept through the night with no pressure pains. For several weeks, I would wake up expecting to be stiff, but have not been even once. There was no discernible odor even the first night. I love this mattress.
Bought our Dream Weaver from a local Mattress dealer Saavy Mattress. We had a wonderful expensive pillow top and with back issues I was having decided I needed something a bit more firm. Gave it 3 weeks to convince me this was the right mattress, it was not. 5 Years later the mattress is sinking in the middle and my sleep is beyond lacking. I wake up more tired and with aches and pains. Don't waste your money, not all memory foam mattresses are equal.
But this mattress about 4 years ago and it is sagging in the middle. We spend more time in our beds than in our cars, buy a better mattress.
We just purchased this mattress from a local furniture store and we LOVE our bed so far. My husband and I switched from our spring mattress. While our old mattress was a good one ($2k+), it was time for a new one. I was sleeping upside down in attempt to find comfort and the hubby was tired of waking up to feet in his face. We went shopping around and tried a few memory foam mattresses in the store. The hubby is not picky, he could fall asleep on gravel... I, on the other hand, need pillows just so, mattress just so, and sheets just so! What drew me to the Enso Dreamweaver is the initial cushion when you first lay down but then the firmness that supports my back (I have a bad back and neck). I don't like to sink into a bed too much and this mattress had good firmness (but knowing that it will soften a little will still be ok). It was slightly firmer than the others in the store. The other thing that helped me make my decision in choosing a mattress was the firm edging. On most memory foam mattresses, you'll find that sitting at the edge will have you sliding right off. This support means that you have more snoozing real estate! Again, compared to the others in the store, this product provided better results. The price was decent ($1k for a Cal King), so that made it easy. And regarding "sleeping hot", I am perfectly fine! I have an insane amount if body heat, and the gel topper keeps me cool (and we live in Hawaii, it's summer, nights are 80 degrees). We unpacked the mattress at home, let it air for 6 hours and put it on our platform bed. There was no odor! When I wake up in the morning, I don't have the aches and pains that I did before (I was taking 4 ibuprofen by lunch daily to deal with my neck pain and headaches it gave me) AND my husband wakes up to my face instead of feet. :) Now, the only thing I have to get used to is how low the bed is now. My old one was a 16 inch mattress, I believe, and this 10 inch is a lot smaller. I'm considering getting the foundation, if I can't adjust my platform to be higher. My point, this will be the best money you've ever spent. I love my bed!
after doing months of research and checking in local stores, i found the 10 inch dream weaver in queen size on a different e-tailer and compared to the prices here on amazon, i got a fantastic deal.
there was no smell when i unpacked it. let it sit for about 12 hours to get its shape back. and now after a solid year of use, it is still an awesome mattress. it will hold body heat and can get hot but i put a sleep tite waterproof mattress pad by malouf on it and it isn't quite so hot. i also make a habit of rotating the mattress once a month and it seems like it is retaining the firmness.
if you're not familiar with enso mattresses, just do a google search for enso sleep systems. the next time i'm mattress shopping, that is the brand i'm going to look for.
we absolutely LOVE LOVE this mattress! looked around for quite awhile, found this in one of the big box stores and decided on it, because it felt the best, good firmness, and were inticed by the advertisements of it not off-gassing as much out of the box. although it did have some smell for a couple of hours, it was very minimal and we were able to sleep on it the same night as it arrived in the mail. also- the price on amazon was significantly less than the lowest price out there we could find, by about $300! great deal for a great mattress! also, purchased the Malouf Mattress Protector, which if you purchase on the same day has a warranty on it, worth it for a little extra protection on the mattress, and also much cheaper on amazon than the mattress stores.
You know the mattresses that grandma would throw on the floor when you went to stay overnight at her house. This is it. When I get up in the morning I have to climb out of the pit that I have sank into. There is no support here.
I was a little hesitant in buying this mattress not knowing how it would feel. But I went for it and am now recovering and sleeping the best I ever had! It’s a must buy!View More Reviews
We can’t say enough good things about our purchase! We both sleep great. And best part...no more lower back pain for me.
Absolute best mattress and pillows I’ve ever experienced (68 years)
I was a little skeptical at first, because it came in a box. Don’t be fool. Best decision ever. Set Up: Super easy. Be careful when cutting the bag so that you don’t cut the mattress. I just wished it gave a hint as to “this side up.” Support and Comfort: Right Firmness. The mattress targets certain pressure points on the body. I did an 18-mile run, laid in my bed and noticed how relaxed my feet were. My recovery time was seamless. Cost: It is pricey, but it is so worth it if your workouts are intense throughout the week. There is an option to purchase the mattress through credit and pay it off by installments Sleeping pattern: Wow! I have been able to sleep my full 7-hrs. Rest is key.
I have to say was very sceptical but it has been awesome
It had been at least 12-years since I’d purchased new mattress, so looking for a new with all these different types of mattresses was going to be tough! After extensive research and reading reviews; I bought my performasleep King mattress! Well needless to say it didn’t disappoint. Great mattress and from the moment I laid on it; I felt my body just starting mold into the mattress with all support it needed still!
This mattress has brought sanity and sweet, sweet slumber to our lives. We feel the need and urge to tell all our family and friends about it. It has been a blessing for sure!
I haven't felt so happy about going to sleep before my matress arrived. Help my lower back pain significantly. Very happy.
Absolutely the best sleep I’ve had in my life, through my marine corps career and now a veteran with back shoulder knee and other problems I’ve found a bed at least for now which satisfies my needs. Excellent job.
I love this bed. Such better sleep at night. I should have gotten pillows to match!
I've been sleeping on my queen size mattress for a week now and have been extremely happy. I wake up well rested and feel refreshed. The perfect combination of firmness and comfort. Great bed!
The mattress has changed the quality of sleep for both me and my life. We both feel like we have better quality sleep
I bought this with some skepticism because of all of the differing models out there. I have used this for two weeks now and its great. It shows me just how much I needed a new mattress. Getting great sleep and not waking up with a sore lower back anymore. Worth the investment . JH
Cannot until it arrives
Best night's sleep in years!!!
First time sleeping in a foam mattress. I thought it would feel mushy and hot. But its actually comfortably firm but not too firm and not too squishy. I also thought it would be hot. It feels comfortable. It doesnt get too hot or too cold. Back feels better too!
We've been sleeping on the mattress for about a week now and if it holds it's current firmness I will be very pleased with it. It's a really good combination of softness and firmness.
Great products and great service!
Extremelly happy with my new mattress. So comfortable and no back pain. Love it!
I had problem with my old mattress and would wake up with lower back pain all the time. This mattress fixes that problem. I’ve been sleeping great since I’ve bought it and have not been nearly as tired in the morning when I wake up
We were on a search for a decent bed that was affordable for a good year. It came down to choosing a box mattress but it's so difficult choosing a brand! Ultimately we choose this mattress because my wife competes in Crossfit competitions and Spartan races and she liked the idea of a mattress to play a role in her recovery. We are now both sleeping better at night with no tossing and turning and seem to wake up more rested.
Thank you for making an affordable quality mattress! Worth Every Penny!
I have had the bed for a couple of weeks and it has preformed as advertised.....and I am very happy with the purchase. I have had no lower back pain that I used to have after sleeping on my old conventional mattress.
I’ve never slept Harder or Better on this thing! I used to snooze for hour or two every morning, now I’m rested, rejuvenated and excited to get up at my first alarm and get to my morning workout.
We love this mattress. It shipped quickly, easily set up, and sleeps great. Highly recommend!
We received our Performa sleep mattress a couple weeks ago and so far we are in love!!
Been sleeping on a king size for a week now, I’m a severe Sleep Apnea case and haven’t had a dream I could remember without wearing a CPAP for a very long time. That changed last week when I got a Performa...I’ve constantly woke up this week and remembered having vivid dreams. It’s kind of nice knowing I’m actually falling into a state of better rest. Getting back to training this month and can’t wait to see the improvement while recovering through better sleep. Seriously, considering a purchase of the pillows offered.
This is the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on in my life. I lie down and don't want to move. This is the only bed I've ever been able to sleep on on my back. It is definitely cool. My fitted sheet feels almost cold to the touch. I haven't gotten overheated at all. I was able to carry the box to my bedroom and unpack it myself (full size) Such cool packaging! I did that in the afternoon and it was perfect at bedtime.
Noticed a big difference in my sleep the first night we got the mattress. Didn't wake up once during the night and the copper infused pad helped keep me cool all night. Can't imagine sleeping on another mattress.
For years I’ve had trouble sleeping and waking up feeling rested in the morning. I’ve been sleeping on my new PerformaSleep mattress for 9 days and I’ve already seen a drastic improvement. I wake up much more rested and without back pain. It’s been years since I’ve felt this good. Thank you PerformaSleep for an incredible product.
Bought a Queen mattress a year ago and had to buy a king because we just needed that much more amazing!
The mattress arrived very quickly and was a snap to set up. It is extremely comfortable. I am glad I made this purchase.
I purchased this bed based on reviews and not sleeping well along with waking up sore because of a crappy mattress. Now that my body has become used to the performa sleep mattress I sleep great and wake up feeling rested and never sore. Also, it was incredibly easy to unpackage and start using.
What a great bed! It exceeded my expectations!
After the first night I wondered why I had waited so long to switch to PerformaSleep! I have spent my adult life with back pain and pain in my hips from sleeping, since I've had my PerformaSleep mattress I've been pain free. I expected an adjustment period because I've spend my whole life on a traditional style spring mattress but I had zero issues adjusting and from my first night I've been sleeping better than I have for years!! And customer service, top notch. They responded to an email within hours, on the weekend!! Thank you PerformaSleep, I recommend you to everybody that will listen!!
Have had this mattress for a two weeks now and no complaints. I'm actually getting less hours of sleep but waking up more fresh. I feel it's definitely helped my recovery also.
Love my new mattress and let’s not forget the pillows!!! Best pillows ever!!! You guys are the best, you really care about your product and making you customers happy!!! 100% recommended... I’ll definitely change all the mattresses in my house...
This is not a super soft pillow top mattress. This is a mattress for an active individual, it is firm allow your muscles the time need to relax and recover. If you are used to a softer bed give this mattress a few week and you will feel the difference. Great Mattress!
Happy with my new bed
I received the pillow first, and my boyfriend instantly fell in love with it. A few days later the mattress came, and I haven’t slept this great since I can remember. It’s truly amazing. Oh and my dog and my boyfriend fight over the pillow. We definitely are very pleased with our purchase!
