I've had back problems off and on for about 20 years. After 3 weeks on this mattress, I can honestly say that my back does not even enter my thoughts any more.View More Reviews
Treated us to a california king mattress and it is amazing its arguibly the most comfortable bed i've slept on even beating out many hotels. Its a perfect mix between firm and soft. It cradles but supports you. My quality of sleep is so much better than it had been in the past i sleep less than i previously had but i wake up significantly more alert and rested. Did i mention the price? This california king cost basically half what my grandmother just paid for a queen bed that "she got a really good deal on." After about two weeks sleeping on this bed i couldnt be more pleased. Thank you eve sleep!
Great service and an even better mattress. This is our second mattress in two years and I love them both. Such an easy way to buy a perfect bed.
Unfortunately, my Eve mattress caused me to awake to with back pain. I tried to give it a few months to see if my body would adjust, but it did not and the back pain persisted. I contacted Eve to initiate the return process, and was told that I had missed the closing of my 100 day trial period by a small number of days, and that nothing could be done to help me. More than anything, I am disappointed by the company's apparent lack of regard for customer service or customer experience. That a company would hold strictly to a policy at all costs, completely disregarding the fact that a product which they take pride in was causing a customer physical pain and discomfort is extremely disappointing to me. I have purchased goods from many of other companies that gladly made exceptions to policies on their paper to ensure that customer experience and satisfaction was the #1 priority. It appears sadly that at Eve, the number one priority is profit alone, at the expense of disappointed customers. You may find the mattress comfortable personally, but even if you did, I could not recommend Eve. There are other comfortable mattresses out there, backed by companies with higher regard for customer service and satisfaction that I would encourage you to direct your money towards instead.
This mattress was the best one i ever had, well to be more exact, it is the first time i ever bought a mattress online. Once i lay on the bed, i fall asleep easily. The comfort of the bed is really good. I also started recommending my friends and family members to get one.
It is both soft enough and firm enough, hard to describe. That makes me want to go to bed early. I am a side and back sleeper with hip problems and I have not had any pain yet. It does sleep a little warm and I’ve had to lighten my covers a bit but that’s the only issue I’ve had. Very pleased! Highly recommended.
Very comfortable. I am now waking up refreshed and well-rested. I am extremely pleased and would highly recommend this mattress.
This is th third purchase I've made, twice in the UK last year and having moved to Canada earlier this year a new queen size mattress. I went to the website, entered details etc and everything went through as expected....except...when I checked my bank account and saw I had been charged in American dollars and paid a whack in exchange. Not what I was expecting as there was nothing saying that the charges would be in American dollars. Otherwise everything was as expected. Please show this information somewhere on the payments page so Canadian customers are aware they will pay in American dollars.
Love this mattress.
My wife and I are really enjoying amazing sleep again thanks to the eve bed. We love it!
We could not be happier with the the mattress. Shipping and set up were quick and easy. Most importantly, we are sleeping better than we have in a long time. We love the balance of supportiveness and softness it provides.
After doing some research I decided to purchase an Eve mattress. Firm and solid shape holding even sitting on the side of the bed in the morning. Its not too firm or to soft. I have been sleeping well. Better than the sleep number bed I had that the Eve replaced. Every persons firm or soft is subjective. I am 176 lbs and my girlfriend is 114 lbs. We both like the mattress. Mattress was packaged well and easy to set up. I think it was totally worth what we paid for it.
This bed is so comfortable. I recently took off the cover to wash it and I realized it's even more comfy without it but after putting it back on the cover is super tight a restricts it a bit. But over all this still is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever owned or layed on.
My previous review was not so hot because FedEx was delayed repeatedly with delivery... Shame on them. We've been on this mattress for a little over 4 weeks now, and what a difference! I can sleep anywhere, and thought I was ok, my girlfriend is more like the "princess and the pea" and notices everything. With this mattress we both notice that we sleep well, wake up feeling great and that we look forward to going to sleep at night. We will see how things are six months from now, but seriously happy at this time
Fantastic- easy to unpackage and very comfortable :)
I was sleeping on a hybrid mattress of spring and foam before. It was way too soft and caused a lot of back pain. I did a lot of research before I finally decided to purchase the Eve mattress and I couldn’t be happier. The mattress is a little firm but that’s what I like about it. It doesn’t feel like the mattress is wrapping me up, I feel like I’m on top of it. The value aspect of the mattress is the best I’ve seen of any of the online mattresses. Overall, A+++
The process for selecting and shipping the mattress was painless, as was the setup in home. I would say I find the mattress to be a bit softer than I'd prefer, and I tend to prefer pillowtop mattresses, so make sure you like memory foam before purchasing. Still 4 stars so obviously I'm not dissatisfied, but just a word of warning if you're picky.
So soft yet firm best sleep ever! Now I look forward to bedtime
I bought the queen mattress 8 months ago and have never woken with a sore joint in my body since. I sleep better than I ever have. I wanted to get the pillows for a while but was put off on the price. I ordered 2, and after only 5 nights I took all my old pillows to the garbage! Amazing just like the mattress. Best purchases I’ve made in my life.
I had doubts when I ordered, I was relieved there was a 100-night money back free return. I am not returning it. I haven't slept this well in 12 years. I love my eve. I am so pleased that the first mail order mattress I tried was the one. I was prepared to go through as many as it would take. Consumer Reports told me which to try, I made a list but the selling point for me was the eve is the most reasonably priced, the surprise was how easy it was to unpack, setup and immediately sleep in luxury.
Keep me cool and very supportive. No complaint after a week so far.
most comfortable mattress i have ever owned and I’m 65. i have back problems and this foam mattress gives me so much relief and i wake up well rested.
I've been sleeping like a champ. Next on the list are a couple of Eve pillows, then I'll be set.
Great mattress. Was hesitant to buy one because I've been looking at other mattress, but boy am I glad I got this mattress. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable mattres that feels like a super expensive one. Kudos eve, kudos
I dinged you one star for no foundation for the bed available from your website. I purchased a wood slatted one from Amazon. I would like to have the accessories available that are in the U.K. The smell problem that I read about just doesn't exist for me or my wife. I smell absolutely nothing. No sinking in. No overheating. Not too soft and not to hard. You guys nailed it! Now if this thing actually lasts ten years...
Mattress was quickly delivered to NYC; tracking the delivery was effortless. Mattress is true to the dimensions listed online. I sleep better and deeper; my muscles are more relaxed as well. Love my Eve mattress.
Never had back issues till sleeping or rather trying to sleep on this mattress. Started sagging immediately. I am a small person. Should not be this uncomfortable. Broke down on edges immediately. Turned it ,tried everything. Do not buy this mattress. You will regret it.View More Reviews
This mattress started sagging only two weeks after purchase, both sides of the bed had deep indents in it causing both my husband and I back pain. I took it back to the furniture store where I purchased it from after 2 months, to be treated with the worst customer service ever. They inspected the mattress without taking off the plastic I wrapped in, stating they found nothing wrong with it. Poor quality, horrible comfort, and warranty. Save your money and keep looking.
I bought this bed only a couple of months ago and at first, it was a dream, but now it has a lot of sagging in the middle of it. If I only saw this review site before I bought. :(
Bought a couple of days ago. So far, pretty satisfied. Is it the best mattress? No. But, it's pretty decent. A little worried about the durability from these reivews.
Luckily was able to return this. I was really dissappointed with the material. From the get go, there was one area that poked into my back. It was a little strange and I thought that it may have been a defective product. But, after risking once, I won't be risking again.
I thought that I was going to be getting a real value out of this mattress, but uncfortunately, this is exactly what you would expect out of a cheap mattress. Something that leaves me in pain in the morning is exactly the opposite of what I wanted to purchase. I wish I could give 0 stars.
I got this bed in 2001 and am still happy with it. Every night I sleeping soundly and without any problems. I wish they made more exactly like this one!!
Great mattress, I bought one for my mom and she loves it.
The worst mattress I have ever slept on in my life. Within one month of sleeping on mattress, it's like laying in a fox hole. I regret not complaining immediately. I would give zero stars if I could.
Over 2 inches the mattress has sunk in less than 6 months. I am not a large person...rotated etc. Regret not taking it back within 120 days. Now..we are stuck. Jumped thru hoops for warranty...so we can get ANOTHER poor quality mattress.
Worst mattress I have ever owed! $1200 mistake
Terrible quality for the money. In less than one year we have craters where we lay and have done all the recommended turning of the mattress etc.
This is a wonderful company. They treat people very well with much respect. Would advise anyone to do business with them. They are honest and good-hard working people, who always keep the customer in mind.
The bed was bad after 18 months and back issues ensued at 36 months! Tried to get the warranty to cover the bed but they wanted me to pay $250 for them to complete the warranty.
We bought two sets of these, what looked like Big Lots mattresses. We were told they would be the same. When delivered they were two different types of mattresses. One was very cheap and after 3 nights it began to sink down a little. The next night it was worse. I have awaken with back problems each morning and in the middle of the night. Worse. CHEAP, set of what we told , was a wonderful set. $250 for warranty. Dear Lord, had we known. This true, negative comment will be shared all over the internet. LEAVE THESE CROOKS and their mattresses alone.
We purchased this mattress almost exactly 6 years ago from Nebraska Furniture Mart's mattress selection (in Kansas City 2012). The Southerland was presented to us as a Simmons equal, made by a proud USA company, and sold for less of a cost of most mattresses ($659.00). I've had a few years of restless sleep and segments of back pain, but I've been making other excuses for the problems (maybe gaining a few extra pounds, maybe stress, maybe needing to get some more exercise)...until now. I have had severe back pain while sleeping to the point it is constantly waking me up during the night and spasms upon waking. It's been months now and I finally gave in and have tried sleeping on my sofa and my child's twin mattress. Both have been better periods of sleep than in my own bed. The store I purchased the mattress told me today that in order for the company to uphold the warranty, and potentially replace the mattress, they would need to prove there is a 1.5" permanent depression in the mattress. In my case, the mattress has no depression when not laying/sitting on it. In my case, my mattress just doesn't seem to have the same strength of resistance to my weight when laying on it. I have a "Firm" mattress but when laying on the mattress I feel like I am in a long curved shape, putting a strain on my lumbar back curving the wrong way.
Started off great, by the end of the first year my husband was sleeping upstairs in the guest room. After the second year, I was sleeping in a hole. In order for them to even consider doing anything you have to jump through hoops and it doesn't show when it is just sitting on the floor. When you lay on it just hope you can manage to turn over or even get out of the bed. We have packed folded towels underneath trying to get some support but even that is breaking down. Haven't had a good nights sleep in a very long time. Any mattress you cannot turn will end up with a sunken place in it.
I bought an Englander Egel mattress that Southerland owns or makes. I've gotten such a run around from these all these people I don't know who is responsible. The mattress started falling apart after two years. I'm still trying to get warranty service for it put they keep handing me of to one person that handles the all the southeast US and he doesn't return phone calls or Emails. Do not buy from these people. If you have a problem they just keep passing you around hoping you give up! I'M NOT GIVING UP!
Mattress springs were poking through the padding within 2 years of purchase. The mattress failed and has a huge "nest" area that sinks about 4-6 inches deep and is about 12-18 inches across. I will never buy another southerland mattress. I bought this one to support a local company. NEVER AGAIN. The store I bought it from will not honor the warranty and say they no longer carry Southerland due to similar problems. I called and left numerous messages with Southerland's customer service - no one returns phone calls. I finally reached someone but when I sent the paperwork off to replace the mattress - NOTHING.
All I know is that ever since I bought my Southerland mattress at Bedzzz Express, I now know what it means to get a good nights sleep!
I purchased a mattress from a local store in 2014 that was a Southerland product. The mattress was great at first but became harder and stiffer after 2 years. The foam actually became less flexible. There is nothing in the warranty that covers this type of ware. Amerigel Discovery Gel - By Southerland Bedding, Queen, Medium Firm.
I purchased an Englander Egel mattress Dec 2012 and we loved it till it failed in Jan 2017 (less than 5 years). I filed a warranty claim and was sent another mattress by Southerland BUT it was a completely DIFFERENT mattress. Southerland has made no effort to resolve this issue. We are stuck with a HORRIBLE mattress that we will have to replace. I do not recommend this company.
After initial purchase 6 years ago the mattress was defective. For whatever reason Weekend only quit carrying their product. For a claim they quoted their fine print and could care less. The warranty price was like buying a whole new mattress. I would never waste my time or money with this group again.
It's a foam pillow top with springs underneath. For about one year, it was so comfortable. Then it sagged so bad, we got egg shaped pockets to sag into. I only weigh 110 lbs.
I bought this mattress from an auburn mattress dealer. It was a second one purchased. I felt like I got screwed all the way around. My back continually hurts and I have a mattress pad. I spent 3700 and hopefully I will buy another one from a more reputable dealer. The company should reimburse the customer and take the mattress back. Do not buy this mattress. Southerland was conveyed to be a great company and it’s not.
I thought I was crazy at first because the mattress is about a year old. How could it sag so soon? I am a small/skinny person and have an indent on the side of the bed I sleep in, I am trying to rotate it to have a fresh side. The problem is you can't sell a mattress to anyone else. I guess I'm stuck with it : (
bought Southerland Carly Plush mattress 6/19 it's not been a year and the mattress has a sag in the middle of it, and it's still not comfortable for me, unfortunately they are letting me replace it with the same brand name which I would have rather get a different Brand name like Serta or Sealy.. but $499.00 mattress is this what u get then I will have to go up in price for a better night sleep. I would not recommend buying this brand..
This bed is HORRIBLE. I purchased this bed for my then 6 year old daughter who weighed around 45 pounds. This bed lasted less than a year. It felt as if there was a hole in the middle of the mattress. I would have opted to return this mattress or voice my complaint, but the furniture store that I purchased it from had gone out of business. This bed reminds me of a taco. When you lay on the bed, it seems as though you are being folded. PLEASE DON'T PURCHASE, READ THE REVIEWS, MONEY IS TOO HARD TO COME BY! My daughter will opt to sleep on a pallet with blankets and covers on the floor or in the bed with me that sleep on her bed! This will be a POOR investment!
My 2020 Fairweather Mattress and Boxspring were delivered 9 days ago. I noticed the center of the mattress started sagging after 3 times trying to sleep on it. I went to Kings Furniture in Dayton, Oh on day 8 (yesterday), to complain, and inquire about an upgrade. I was told someone would call me today, and that I should've returned it within 2 days of purchase. I am financing this matters set for almost $900.00, and have spent half of my first week with it, sleeping on my sagging sofa. I'm super pissed, and I want out of this deal!
Lived in Nashville and figured I'd buy a local brand, big mistake. Spent the extra money on the "Ultimate Serene" Line . The only thing this "Ultimate" piece of junk has me saying is "Serenity Now". 3 years later I'm leaving the house to go sink another $5G on a new bed set up.
I've never owned a "Southerland Mattress" before, and this is the first time I have taken time to write a review. I purchased the mattress for my guest room, so that my elderly mother can sleep over when it's late. Since she initially didn't spend the night, I spent an evening "trying it out" to make sure it would be comfortable for her. I was very impressed with the gentle support, and comfort of the mattress (I fell asleep on it) After she tried it and commented "how well she slept" I decided to take some time to write a review! Thank you Southerland, for manufacturing such an awesome mattress!!
Do not buy a Sutherland mattress, it should have been recalled for faulty craftmenship! Don't buy from Johnson's Furniture in Newberg, they're crooks!
