The Kiss Mattress by Sleep EZ is made with a top layer of highly responsive latex foam, which provides a refreshing and cool sleeping surface. The middle layer is a resilient memory foam that continues this bouncy feel of the latex above with the pressure relieving properties. This mattress is similar to other major mattresses in a box, but with firmness options that may be too firm or too soft for some.
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 Kiss in this match up!
We all want to see how customers respond before we invest a lot of money in an expensive product. That being said, it isn't always simple for shoppers to get to the bottom of things after looking at many different sites. Based on our examination of sleeper reviews, we've found that customers give these above average marks on overall satisfaction. However, there is some mixed feedback Study more about the mattress specifics below.
These mattresses have above average ratings for support, which is great when you've been looking for a mattress to support your spine. However, there are some that have mentioned support and feel issues, so make sure to figure out if the firmness and overall specifications are for you.
Edge support is a useful indicator of resistance and support along the sides of the mattress. These mattresses do a fine job, but some may exerience some dipping along the sides.
These mattresses get mixed ratings from customers on durability. We all hope to find a mattress that remains cozy for 10 years or more, but unfortunately, not all of them will last as long as you hope. If you are thinking about buying a mattress that has mixed feelings on durability, double-check the trial and warranty policies to make sure you are comfortable.
Not all sleepers like these mattresses. Some customers didn't have a good experience, but others were completely satisfied. Due to this, it is more difficult to predict whether one will work flawlessly for you. Do additional research below to learn from customers if one of these will work for you.
Some customers have been satisfied with the supportiveness of these mattresses, but others have had problems with the support. For those that have back pain already, do some added research before purchasing.

We all want a mattress that lasts 10 years or more, and when we instead buy a mattress that causes us discomfort after only a year, we feel cheated. That said, nowadays, it is getting harder and harder to find lasting comfort. With more types of products than ever before, some brands aren't investing as much in quality. With these mattresses specifically, some sleepers report problems with lasting comfort. Not all customers will experience durability issues, but make sure to review the return and warranty policies before buying.
First off, let me say the mattress is extremely comfortable. I really like it. It's soft, it stays cool, and conforms well. I'm a big guy 6'2'' 275lbs and I feel great in a queen. The real pleasure of buying this mattress though was the purchasing process. It's extremely easy. This was my first mattress purchase online and I don't think I'll ever buy a mattress in a brick and mortar store again. You don't have to deal with annoying salesman, it's cheaper, and it's way easier to get it to wherever you're putting it. Don't be intimidated if you've never ordered one online before - it's so much easier. I couldn't be happier with my purchase so far.View More Reviews
While the selection and ordering process or smooth and the folks at Kiss were great to work with, it's a little too soon to tell how happy we will be with the mattress. We ordered a plush and it is quite firm. I had hoped to be used to it by now but still think it may be too firm. While I am not looking for squishy, just a little more plushness would be super.
The service from KissMattress is amazing. So far they have done what they said they would do for me and more. I found the mattress to be a little bit firm, but I do like it, so as promised they sent me a topper for it when I asked (no additional charge). The topper was nicer than I expected and helps me fall asleep at night. I really like their business model of being straight forward and telling us what we are getting from them. I look forward to seeing how the bed wears into the warranty period, but if they stick to their word in the quality of the product as they have in getting it to me and making sure I'm happy with it, then I'm sure it'll go splendidly.
I purchased a plush queen size Kiss mattress about a month ago. It's the third mattress I've tried in as many months and it's the one I'll keep. My experience is that the Kiss conforms nicely but does not envelope me. I don't have pressure points on my back or side, but I still feel well supported. It has the kind of softness that allows it to 'give' under curves, but it doesn't feel pillowy. Best of all, the mattress helps me maintain a neutral sleeping temperature. It's very breathable and that's a hugely important to me because I sleep hot. This is a very comfy mattress, middle of the road softness, great for combo sleepers, and great for sleepers who get hot at night. I am extremely pleased with the purchase and cannot wait to get in bed.
This mattress is great! I sleep through the night, no back pain or stiffness when I wake up.
Even though it is still a little bit soft for my taste, it is a great mattress, great body support, no back pain anymore, not hot at all, and I live on Florida.
slept on it 4 times now like it so far
The mattress is very comfortable, though more firm than I expected. Overall, I'm very happy with it.
Customer service helped me choose a firm mattress. I am happy that I went with Kiss. I really have been having the best sleep when I'm on my the new mattress.
Your customer service was phenomenal! It's great to have a mattress delivered right to your front door.
Definitely worth the money! Hands down most supportive, comfortable mattress I've ever had.
Perfect mattress; very plush and cool to sleep on (the real reason I was in search of another mattress).

Great experience from start to finish. Bought kiss mattress and foundation. Customer service was quick to answer any questions.
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.
