Lucid mattresses have been selling mattresses online for the last seven years and they have a wide variety of gel memory foam, hybrid, and latex mattresses -- including a super thick 16 inch mattress. They offer a wide variety of mattress options that are low cost, which is preferred for budget-conscious shoppers. However, there are customers that have experienced some issues with sagging and durability over a shorter period than average, so these mattresses may be best only for temporary solutions.
Ortho Mattress is a proud American manufacturer of mattresses based in southern California. They are also a mattress retailer that sells name brands like Serta and Tempur-Pedic alongside their own brand. With desirable price points that work for budget conscious shoppers, they offer a wide array of mattress styles, including all-foam and coil varieties. Most folks have good things to say about their Ortho mattresses.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend both Lucid and Ortho in this match up!
Some customers are happy with their mattresses, but others are not as happy and have had complaints about comfort. Even though there are those that like these mattresses, overall they have lower customer satisfaction than average. Read on if you are considering buying for more information on the mattresses.
A mattress with good support doesn't mean that it is necessarily firm. Deep support means the mattress aligns the back and spine. Unfortunately, these mattresses have some negative feedback around support. Most find that they provide a good amount of support at the beginning, but some customers described feeling less supported as time went on.
For those that need to sit on the edge of their bed or roll to the side, even edge support is very important. At first, these mattresses do a good job with edge support, but some may find that it doesn't work for them over time.
Sadly, not everyone rates these mattresses well for longevity. While some folks describes them as comfortable for them, others describe feeling issues and discomfort of a short time. If you are considering, make sure to read more reviews and go over the return policies before you buy.
Not everyone feels positive about these mattresses. Some customers were happy with the way their new mattresse made them feel, but others reported being uncomfortable. Therefore, it is more difficult to estimate if one of these will work perfectly for you. Take a look below to learn more about the specifics and to see if the mattress will work for you.
These mattresses may not offer the kind of lasting support that most customers expect. Though some customers are pleased with these mattresses, if you are bigger than average, make sure to do more research before purchasing.
For those that want quality edge support, you may want to take a look at the reviews as these mattresses have mixed reviews about edge support.
In addition to having good support, having a mattress that really lasts is key for shoppers. We are all hopeful to find a mattress that would be just as comfortable day one as it is 10 years from now. However, sadly these mattresses are not rated very well by sleepers on longevity and some have experienced issues after only a short time. If you are considering buying for nightly use, read the reviews to make sure it will work with your body before buying.
Fantastic delivery.....the mattress arrived in two days. We laid the mattress out on the platform for the bed and patiently waited the 48 hours for the mattress to expand. This 10'' mattress expanded to 9 1/4'' on one side and 9 5/8'' on the other side which, although is less than a 1/2'' differential, means that the mattress is not level. This also means that the mattress does not fill up its cover, which is intended for the full 10''. I scoured foam mattress websites and this mattress was advertised to be 'medium firm' and is the firmest mattress Lucid offers. Unfortunately, the mattress really isn't all that firm at all. It's a fine mattress if you don't mind the baggy cover and a spongy mattress.
We have a double mattress made by Dormia, which is firm and we like. We were trying to find that mattress again, but couldn't seem to find it. After reading all the product literature we could find, we thought this was the right mattress.
I'm trying to return it, but, of course, this mattress that expands after the box is opened will not fit in the box it arrived in. I'm having difficulty returning it because it needs to be returned in the box it came in.....
On the other hand.... I finally was able to return the mattress (which was no easy task packaging, etc, and we had to bundle it and wrap it in plastic) and Amazon was great and timely in issuing a refund.
MOST COMFORTABLE MATTRESS EVER. If you are thinking about a foam mattress, buy this one. BUY IT NOW.
This is the second one I've bought. The first one had to be sold because I was moving and couldn't take it with me. Sleeping without it for a year and then getting a second one really proved how much more comfortable this is and how much better I sleep on it.
With both of them, there is a definite smell because it's foam and it comes vacuum-sealed and rolled in plastic. The smell will happen, it's just a fact. But in neither case did it linger or ever become so strong that I thought it was outrageous. In both cases I opened the mattress, let it expand, and slept on it that night without any smell issues. If you're pregnant or super-sensitive to smells, this might set you off, but after a day, I didn't notice a smell anymore at all.
The delivery is fast and it's really easy to just unroll it onto your bedframe and let it expand into its final shape. And moving it around once it is expanded is pretty simple too. It's not the lightest mattress but I don't find it any more heavy or cumbersome than a traditional spring mattress.
We're talking about having to upgrade to a queen or king size when we move again and I will absolutely be buying either of those sizes in a lucid memory foam.
This was a bad purchase. The bed just sinks into a hole no matter how many times you flip it around. It destroyed my back. And the warranty (which says it's 25 years) wasn't true. I had contacted the company within 2 months pf purchasing the mattress and got no where with them.
Couldn't sleep comfortably on this mattress. Instead of fitting to my body - it simply sank to my body. Perhaps its me, I need a firmer bed - if that's you - don't get this (1,000 years ago I owned waterbed - its something like that - maybe better when I was 20 - but not now in 40s).
if you remove the fitted zippered cover, there's tiny shards of what looks like fiberglass or something. It kind of scares me to think about it.
Would not buy this one again. So we just deal with it and bought a sealed waterproof cover for it hoping we never have to remove the cover again.
After 5 years, there is certainly 2 'dipping' spots on each side (We rotate the mattress 4x each year but you can only swap it 180 degrees and can't flip it). I find it very difficult to sleep in anywhere but the depression (it'll be like sleeping on a hill). I don't notice it if I lay directly in the exact center though. I think after 3 years I should have bought a different one (supposed to be warrantied for 20?)
I thought initially that having a bed shipped to the door of my new house instead of using my old one would save me a headache. It turns out I was wrong as this bed has broken down in less than 1.5 years of just me sleeping on it (I'm a 200lb athletic built man). I would expect more from a bed, but I should have known. Next time I'll choose a Costco bed as they have better warranties. The bed has broken down on both the right and left side. It fills almost as a mountain range separates me and the other side of the bed because the edge has sunk so much. I can not sleep on my stomach as the destroyed support hurts my back. This bed may as well be an airbed. Just because it has good reviews does not mean it is even nearly as good as a $500 bed.
Make sure you air it out before using it, and use the proper base (you want a base specifically for memory foam beds). These beds can carry some heavy fumes if you don't air them out enough, so make sure if you're chemically sensitive to give your bed plenty of air-out time.
When I received mine (full-sized) I took it out of the plastic and let it air out for about a week before using it (this gives it time to "fluff" as well), then I covered it in a mattress protector (plastic) because I'm more sensitive to the smells. But the mattress feels WONDERFUL. I've not slept so well in ages. It was perfect for me, and took care of my back issues. But again, you may have to cover it well if you're extremely chemically sensitive.
I purchased this mattress in October 2015 and the bed frame recommended for it as well. The bed was fine for 6-8 months and then began to sag on the sides and I am the only one sleeping on it. I basically have to hoist myself up to the middle of the bed so I don't feel like I'm going to roll off the bed. I've been having quite a bit of trouble sleeping lately and I think that it's because while I'm sleeping and turn over I feel like I'm going to fall off. The middle of the bed feels the same as when I first purchased it. I guess that you get what you paid for.
I've shopped & procrastinated about buying either a memory foam type mattress or a "sleep number" type mattress for several years. After years of tossing & turning from side to side ( I'm a large framed [read ex-football player/coach] man) on our inner-spring bed, I finally decided to give this bed a try because of the price - $239.99, plus ~$80.00 s&h. for a queen size mattress. Should have done this a long, long time ago. I still roll over once or twice per night, but not on the nearly houly schedule I used to keep. We've only slept on it 2 nights. I'm not totally ache free in the a.m. but I'd have to say an 90% reduction in morning ache & back pain would be about right. If you're thinking about a memory foam mattress, don't keep putting it off. These inexpensive mattresses are great! Lucid mattress - $239.99, shipping - $81.80, good night's sleep - priceless!
Hands down...this is THE best mattress I've ever owned. My sister has a genuine tempurpedic bed and it's basically the same thing. Although hers came with a box spring and this is JUST the mattress itself, mattress-wise, hard to tell the difference. This one is just a tad firmer than the bed she owns but I like firmer mattresses to begin with. I've never slept better in my life before getting this thing. I used to have trouble falling a sleep at night if I took a nap during the day, but this bed alleviates that issue. Also, I don't wake up with any weird pains anywhere on my body. I wish I would have known about this "steal" sooner...
We have shopped, and shopped, and shopped for mattresses and I have never seen a deal this great even at the discount places or the places with defective mattresses. We bought this mattress for our little boy who is in a torso cast (to treat his scoliosis) to help him be more comfortable at night. I might also grab one for our guest room at this price.
Just wanted to update my review after using this mattress for the past 6 months. At first I was a little skeptical since it was firmer than the mattress I normally sleep on, but I LOVE it. I often fall asleep in my son's room (where this mattress is) and if he is gone for the night I sometimes sleep in his room instead on mine so I can sleep on this mattress.
For the past four months, I've slept upon a large, granite slab. People called me grumpy, troll-like, "unpersonable" in interviews. Last night I fell asleep upon this cloud, like the backs of soft puppies; a thousand daisies cradled me like an infant. Sleep beckoned me like a warm, familiar friend, breathing life back into my tired soul. Today, I awoke as a new person, 99% certain I have discovered the cure for cancer, pollution, and old people smell just from a single night of glorious sleep upon this heaven-sent Lucid 10" Memory Foam Dual-Layered Mattress. What will tomorrow hold? Will I find a renewable energy source? Save an endangered species? Lead the way to world peace? All I know for sure is that my night will be filled with ecstatic slumber.
Note: If any of you have ever slept in a jail cell before, it's basically the opposite of that.
This mattress came rolled up (compressed). It has a soft white cover which can be unzipped and washed, I think. It was heavy but I was able to lift it by myself and drag the box up a flight of stairs. I have never owned a memory foam mattress before so I was expecting it to be lighter. When I got it upstairs, I removed the packaging, and unrolled the mattress, which decompresses into its original form.
The mattress is as supportive as my regular mattress. I consider this one to be firm. I would recommend this mattress. There is an odor which is similar to latex paint, but it is fading. I have been sleeping on this mattress for a week and it I love it.
I was not really sure what to expect when this mattress arrived. Thankfully it did not take long for us to know we made a good purchase! This mattress is firm yet soft and comfortable at the same time. We went ahead and bought two of them at this bargain of a price and both are very comfortable! Don't hesitate to grab one of these up. I switched out a $1,800 mattress for one of them I got and am so glad I did! If you are wanting a better mattress but don't want to pay an outrageous price, then I suggest one of these!
Absolute heaven! I bought this mattress for my Freightliner Cascadia, and although the size was too wide initially I was able to easily cut off a few inches using a kitchen knife to fit my sleeper perfectly. When I first laid down on this mattress I could not believe the difference from my previous mattress, it made my previous mattress feels like a bed of nails in comparison. This mattress sleeps just as good or even better then my $2,000 mattress at home. I had a 2 inch memory foam pad that I bought from Walmart to help my old mattress that I added to this mattress for overkill effect and now it feels as if I'm sleeping on a cloud. I'm 6 '3 260 pounds, this is just my opinion but I think this is a great mattress initially I'll have to see how it holds up down the road
This was a terrible item. Quality was lacking and became very, very uncomfortable after a short amount of time. The price may be low - but I do not recommend this item. Thumbs way down.
This mattress is wonderful. I first purchased two queen-sized mattresses a couple of years ago for my kids. I was a little iffy about ordering them, but knew that with Amazon's return policies, it was worth checking them out. I had no idea how I'd ever get them back in the packaging if they turned out to be a disappointment, but I ordered them anyway. Fortunately, I never had to figure out re-vacuum seal a queen sized mattress back down into a small box, because these things are great!
They do have a sort of funny smell at first, but nothing horribly offensive. We just opened up the windows and let them air out as they inflated. The short-term smell was worth putting up with, in order to have such a comfy mattress, at such an affordable price. My kids were thrilled, and so excited to have a bigger bed. Especially my son, who is so tall that his feet no longer fit onto the twin bed we were replacing.
That was over 2 years ago, and the mattresses are just as good as the day they we unpacked them. There are no dips or uncomfortable areas, just wonderful, comfortable mattresses. This past autumn we set up a spare room for my in-laws, so they could come stay with us for a couple of weeks, and we knew we had to have another of these for their use. Again, we have had a wonderful experience, and are pleased with our purchase. My mom came over and reclined on it to try it out one day, and was shocked at how great it was for the money, and has determined to replace her own with one of these.
My mother and father-in-law were both surprised at how comfortable the mattress was, as they knew how much we'd spent on it. I'm sure they were a little worried about sleeping on it, and having sore backs for two weeks. Instead, they were both pleasantly surprised at how well they'd slept, which was just as well, if not better, as they did on their own brand-new $1500 pillow top mattress. I'll certainly never go back to a traditional mattress.
So far my husband and I love this mattress. It is on the firmer side, yes, but it still fits to your body and is still comfortable. Otherwise you'd sink right through it. After having it for over a week it's definitely a lot more flexible so it will get better over time. If you want more of the memory foam "sinking into" feeling I'd suggest a memory foam mattress pad topper maybe 2-3in deep, but it's not necessary. I'll update this review if anything changes.
This bed is great. I think it was a total shipping weight of 67 lbs. Heavy, but not terrible for one person to carry. Used two people to take it up the stairs to make it easier to navigate. Quick set up, in the box is just the bed and some plastic wrap. I didn't think it needed to wait 24 hours to be used, but I still did anyways. Wow, this mattress is great. It isn't a 5 star mattress compared to $1000 mattresses, obviously. But for the price you pay, this thing is great. I am not sure how long it will last, I have only had it a month or so. But for the price, if it does only last a couple of years I will be happy with that.
I regret nothing about purchasing this. Prior to buying this I had a $600 spring mattress, this is far more comfortable. I really feel like a get a better night's sleep on this thing.
I must admit that I did not know what to expect when I ordered this mattress. I did know that similar mattresses like Tempur-Pedic sell for over $1,000.00. I also knew that my 10 year old innerspring Sealy mattress was killing me. I hurt every morning when I woke up.
I shopped everywhere; locally, as well as online, including E-Bay and Craig's List. The price was what caught my attention. It was $100.00 less than the best price I could find. That made me skeptical, because you get what you pay for. In looking at other memory foam mattresses online, it seemed that memory foam mattresses were a good item for scam artists..... if you have looked, you know what I mean.
What eased my skeptical mind with this particular mattress was the 20 year warranty. I saw NO other comparable warranty, so I purchased it.
Once again, when UPS delivered it, I had my doubts..... it came in a box. I began wishing I had not bought it, but carried it upstairs to my room, and opened the box, figuring that I had to put it together, or something. Turns out that it was just rolled up very tightly, and wrapped in plastic. We unwrapped it, and it started expanding quickly.
The first night sleeping on it was unbelievable! I slept like a bear in hibernation! But the best thing was that I was not hurting the next morning! I would recommend this mattress to anyone looking for a good deal on one. It really surprised me in more ways than one.
This is a very well manufactured mattress. The mattress will mold a shape to your body cavity and reshapes itself after you get up (memory foam). I did not experience any oder of the foam as stated in other reviews. The mattress went from 2.5 inches to 8 inches in about 8 hours and expended to the full 10 inches in 30 hours. I was able to donate the old mattress to our local furnature bank. I am well well satisfied on this purchase, it arrived in a few days from the initial order by Fed Ex.
As other reviewers have stated, this is indeed a firm mattress. Being a fan of softer ones myself, it took a little adjusting. I still plan to invest in a mattress topper eventually for that little extra snuggle factor; however overall, for the price and convenience, you can't beat this mattress. If you need a bed fast, at a great price, just get this one. I would prefer a bed that's a little on the firm side than one that'll sink in the middle after a short time anyway. Also, if you're used to innersprings as I was, this might feel a little weird for you too (ie. it doesn't bounce- obviously- memory foam) so no jumping on the bed. Darn. But, as far as memory foam mattresses go, this is tops.
I have had this mattress for about 2 years now. I originally purchased as a temporary bed until I could afford something better, but I will never sleep on anything else again. This mattress surpassed my expectations. First impressions are that it might be too firm, but don't let it fool you. I wake up in the same position as I fell asleep and have NO aches or pains....ever. I was also concerned that over time the mattress might "break-in" or sag where I sleep - this hasn't happened. The bed still feels like the first day I bought it. If you think you'll get more for your money by spending $1,000+ on a name brand memory foam mattress, I challenge you to try this first. You won't be disappointed. The protective cover is also a nice touch. It is soft and velvety, not crunchy or cheap like some other protective covers. Over time if the fabric pills just flip it inside out and throw it in the wash.
This was my first real memory foam bed. This is firm very firm. Took me a while to get use to it. Not a bed meant for side sleepers as you do not sink into the bed. I am now using it as a guest bed. Smell goes away in a couple of days in a well ventilated room. comes in a vacuum roll and it is easy to move around compared to a traditional bed. Price cannot be beat here on amazon.
My daughter recently moved out taking her bed along for the ride. Unfortunately this left an empty spot and nowhere for guests to stay. We decided to size down to a Twin XL instead of her queen. (1) Because it takes up less space in my office and (2) Although we want them to be comfortable, we don't want them to be "too" comfortable (lol).
The LUCID 10 inch memory foam Twin XL mattress arrived in a rectangular box that was manageable even by myself. It weighed about 49 pounds, but I was able to get it up 2 flights flipping the box end over end. Once out of the box, it was double wrapped in plastic. You remove the first layer that will allow the mattress to roll out flat. The 2nd layer, once removed, allow the mattress to expand. One word of advice... the mattress rolls out upside down, so flip it before taking the plastic off. Although my Twin XL was easy to manipulate fully expanded, I can imagine the larger mattresses would not be (floppy and squishy).
Yes, the mattress smelled initially. We had it in an upper bedroom with the ceiling fan going on high. After about 24 hours the smell was gone and I could "dress" the mattress. I felt it inflated completely and laying on it I thought it was very comfortable. I am a squishy bed kind of girl and wondered if this more firm mattress would be a no go for me, but I could see sleeping on it. I wanted it a little firm as I set the bed up sideways to look more like a day bed (wanted people to be able to sit on it and not fall in).
Sleep test... my daughter came home for a visit. She is also a very squishy bed lover, so again I worried. Her first night she slept "eh, ok". Her second night was much better and she said that it was just a matter of getting used to memory foam compared to her spring mattress. Overall she liked it and would recommend it!
Excellent quality. No horrible odor like some reports. HUGE FIRM COMFORTABLE MATTRESS! Better quality than the mattress selection at Sleepys. This mattress was a huge gamble for me and I am glad I did it. We are very pleased. I think I am a bed snob. I love to sleep and I love to sleep on comfortable beds. We spent over $2000.00 on a Stearns and Foster Mattress and personally, this LUCID by LinenSpa 10" mattress is better than any mattress I have ever slept on. My daughter is in heaven. I know where I am sleeping tonight. Can't wait to purchase the 12" king Sized for hubby and I.
These beds are very good beds, and represent some of the best value for the money in mattresses. The beds take a few days to reach full depth. We had bought these for ikea malm bed frames, because these mattresses are better quality than ikea's cheaper mattresses and full depth. The depth is important so it fits sheets without pulling off (important for kids beds where it is a challenge to get them to make the bed in the first place). Unfortunately ikea full frames are 53" wide and these mattresses are 54"+, even when fully expanded they still curve out in the middle. The difference prevents the mattresses from fitting down in the frame. I had to fabricate a 'box frame' out of 2x3's and the bed support slats to push the mattresses up almost flush with the top of the bed frame. Not a big deal since I enjoy my occasional home improvement projects...
The beds are definitely comfortable. I may consider getting one for ourselves in addition to the kids in the future. I could see if you were a sleeper that rolled a lot these would not work for you. When you sleep you create a depression that wants to re-center you when you try to rotate. Likely consistent across all foam type mattresses though. The kids have been super happy with the upgrade from traditional twin spring mattresses.
Would buy again, and have two of them already.
Up until I purchased this mattress, I'd suffered from headaches, severe back aches, and general soreness every day - and I'm only 27! After sleeping on this mattress for only a few days, the difference was remarkable. No more back pain, little to no head aches, it was amazing! I wish they sold it in King size - I'd buy it on the spot to place in my other bedroom. Some reviews mentioned an odor, but I did not experience this, and the mattress swelled up just like it said it would when I pulled it out of the box. Absolutely worth the money, I'd suggest it to anyone.
Great mattress. Bought the twin for a college apartment. The mattress came rolled in plastic inside a box- which fit easily into the back of my Honda pilot (with a bed frame and a dresser as well!). It's not super heavy- I lifted it with my daughter, but my son, who is 6'3", could carry it by himself (when in the box- outside of the box it's unwieldy, because it's big, and fluffed up). When we took off the plastic and unrolled the mattress, it quickly puffed up- and became 10 inches. Initially it looked about 3"- which is how they get it in a relatively small box. BE CAREFUL when unboxing it- there are lots of large silica gel packs in the box- a few of ours had broken and there were little pieces everywhere. We heard them sliding around, and opened the box outside (thank goodness). We didn't find much of a smell (we thought there would be, and were leaving it alone for a few weeks to air out) but I didn't notice much at all- so my daughter could have used it the same day. The mattress is thick, and very comfortable, and comes with a nice cover. It fit the twin frame we got on Amazon perfectly. I could not be happier with this purchase. Loved the packaging. Love the product.
I had recently purchased a "memory foam" bed from Amazon and had to return it because the bed had never fully risen to the height it was advertised at and the bed was just too darn uncomfortable. So you can imagine I was worried about my purchase of yet another item from Amazon. To my much needed surprise the bed is extremely easy to remove from the packaging and had risen to true size within 12 hours! The bed is so very comfortable and the extra long size is magical (I have a boyfirend that is 6'6") and his feet do not hang off anymore!! The price is very reasonable for the quality and it comes with a 25 year warranty... BUY THIS NOW!
i have been sleeping with a mattress and box spring for way to long, ive been wanting one of these since i first slept on one at my moms house. when i started to look up mattresses i decided to look at this one. one it is a 10 inch memory foam mattress. besides that it comes with a nice 25 year warranty. it comes delivered my fedex and it surprisingly comes in a fairly small box. the mattress arrives flat and rolled in plastic and inside of the box. when you remove it from the box it has to sit flat on the ground for 48 hours so it can become the size that it is supposed to be. i recommend doing that in the room that you are planning to use the mattress in because once it is at its original size it is a pain to move it. ive had it for a few months now and im in love with this mattress
LUCID 10 Inch Memory Foam Mattress - Dual-Layered - CertiPUR-US Certified - 25-Year Warranty - Queen
I was in need of a twin bed mattress, and needed it delivered quickly. I was super happy to find this great buy on Amazon, and with my Prime membership, I received it with free shipping in a few days to my door. Can't beat that! The mattress was tightly packaged in a box, and when In opened the mattress's plastic covering, it started expanding almost immediately. Within 2 hours, it had expanded to the full 10 inch depth, and was ready to sleep on. I did not notice any chemical odor that some other reviewers noticed. The only thin g I would change is that the little bag of dehumidifier's(?) had broken, so when I took out the mattress from the box, they spilled all over my wood floor. Since they are clear, it has taken me almost a month to find them all, and I am still finding 1-2 daily. But, that is a small price to pay fore this great mattress! I was happy to experience great sleep from the very first night on this mattress. I'll definitely purchase another one if my bedding needs change again.
This mattress gives the most AMAZING night of sleep! I had a memory foam mattress years ago and I was so sad when I got rid of it. BUT when I bought this one OHHH MYYY GOD! It is like I am sleeping on a fluffy cloud EVERY NIGHT! Nothing is better than a good nights sleep and at this price you can afford one for everyone in the house. I know I definitely feel spoiled every night that I get to sleep on my mattress.
I was shopping for a new mattress for months, because my old one was causing noticeable back pain and some twinges/cramping. I'm notoriously cheap and a determined bargain-hunter, but even I was a bit skeptical about a king-sized memory foam mattress for such a low price compared to the competitors. However, I've been sleeping on this bed for 3 weeks now, and I can honestly say that I did not sacrifice quality or comfort at all. I would have given it 5 stars, but (as other reviews have stated) this should not be described as a firm mattress. I didn't want a firm mattress though, so it's perfect for me. The best part? Not a bit of back pain or even a single twinge since I received this bed!
UPDATE: I've been sleeping on this bed for over 18 months now, and it's held up perfectly- no loss of firmness, shape, anything, it's still 100% as good as the day I got it. I love it. It's the best money I have EVER spent. Don't waste your money on a more expensive one! I've sent a few friends links to the listing and they've bought it too
I purchased this to replace a spring mattress that came with abedframe that I got on craigslist. It was new, but definitely not luxury. After a year or so, I decided to start shopping around for something that would be comfortable, yet affordable.
After browsing Amazon (my favorite place to start), I came across this highly-rated mattress and, based on the reviews and the price, decided to give it a go.
With prime, I got the mattress a few days after I ordered it. I popped it out of the box and let it expand in the living room for 48 hours (as indicated). I think it was fully expanded after 24, but I let it go the whole time just to be sure. It comes in a box, wrapped in plastic inside, and has a removable mattress cover that is very thin (but does the job and is easy to remove and clean).
I didn't think to remove the plastic covering while it was expanding, and when I finally went to put it on my bed, got hit with a smell akin to paint when I tore open the plastic. It was very strong and gave me a headache just like I get when I'm around fresh paint (like when I repainted the walls of my house). I left it on the bed with the window open and fan on, and after a day the strong smell was gone (totally gone after 48 hours... should have done this while I was waiting for it to expand).
After the smell was gone, I added my sheets (they fit perfectly, which matters a lot to me since I hate when they slide off the corners) and blankets and climbed in... HEAVEN! Like a cloud that you're not afraid will dissipate and drop you to earth. As I lay there, I felt my aches slowly leave my body, and pretty soon I was waking up. I NEVER fall asleep that easily! This is definitely a winner in my book.
I'll check back in after a while and add an update.
Great deal, firmer than I expected. Not a problem. 25 yr. warranty. No more mattress and box spring sets. We replaced a king with a king and used the memory foam topper we had to soften it a little. Well pleased with Lucid customer service I talked to prior to purchase.
everybody who knows about our bed is jealous for what a good price we got it. and it feels great
I did a plethora of research before purchasing this product. My wife and I had been sleeping on a spring mattress for 5 years that was starting to sink to the middle, so we decided to purchase a new bed for ourselves for Christmas. I didn't really know which way we should go, but I knew my parents had a Temperpedic and love it, so I figured we should try memory foam. The only problem is I am 27 and cannot quite yet afford a mattress of that stature at this point in my life. I came across Lucid on Amazon early in my searches and it caught my eye right away. We have been sleeping on it for a month, and it has been the greatest investment we ever made. For the whole king bed (mattress, frame, sheets, skirt) we spent less than $500 and it has been worth 3X that much! I will touch on a couple points that I read in reviews and give my thoughts:
Several reviews spoke of back pain early into their experience with this bed that subsided. In one review the guy mentioned that it felt like a "good pain". I wasn't quite sure what that meant until I slept on the bed. I too had minor aching in my lower back the first couple weeks after sleeping on this mattress, but for some reason it did feel like a "good ache". I still slept sound and felt comfortable when lying in the bed, but woke up aching. Now, after a couple weeks, I wake up pain free and completely refreshed. It is like sleeping on a cloud.
Another major point in reviews is the stiffness of the bed. I weigh 165. My wife about 110-120. My weight allows for me to make impressions in the bed, which to me makes the bed feel softer than most reviews are giving credit for. The bed completely swallows me up and I feel like I am cradled in a little cocoon almost. My wife on the other hand is not heavy enough to force impressions in the bed. This is not to say that she doesn't think the bed is a completely heavenly sleeping experience, but what I am getting at is that lighter people will feel like the bed is a little stiff, but not too stiff and still extremely comfortable.
Last but not least that I read in a lot of reviews is the smell. The best certainly smells when opening. It isn't extremely pungent and didn't bother me a lot, but it is there, and definitely needs to air out. The recommendations with our mattress was to let it air out for 48 hours before sleeping on it. We being extremely excited to sleep in a new be only allowed a little over 24 hours of airing out time in a pretty poorly ventilated room as it is winter time and cold outside. This was probably a mistake as now our cover that goes over the mattress has a slight smell of the bed even after washing which causes our sheets to stink slightly as well. Nothing major, but you do notice it. Nothing to deter me from recommending purchasing this product.
We bought this mattress for our guest room. We just wanted an inexpensive, fairly comfortable mattress. FAIRLY comfortable was the goal - we don't want our guests to wear out their welcome! LOL .. We had the mattress for three weeks and our son was the only one that had slept on it. He said it was very comfortable. Last week my husband hurt his back and decided to sleep in the guest room because he said the mattress seemed to have more support than our Tempur-pedic. He felt much better after a couple of nights on this mattress. He did return to our Tempur-pedic but two nights ago asked if we could sleep in the guest room. Well, we have been there since! I think we are going to change mattresses and put the Tempur-pedic in the guest room. I can't believe this less than $300.00 mattress is replacing our $1500.00 Tempur-pedic of two years. Go figure! I think this is definitely one of the best buys on Amazon!
FYI, this mattress is delivered rolled up quite small. We unrolled it and let it air out and fluff up a day or two before putting the bedding on it. The smell dissipated within two days.
The mattress came compressed to make it easier to handle. Personally I was really glad it did. I did not notice any smell at all. It was firm and had us worried at first but after sleeping on it we have been loving it since day one. I wake up in the same spot I fell asleep in and feel totally rested. I can't see why anyone would pay more. I know the old saying "you get what you pay for" but I also know that it is not always true if you are informed. Sometimes you just get taken. My brother has one of those way expensive well known brands and neither one of us or our wives can tell the difference. They both wish they would have known about this one first. And both mattresses have a 20 year warranty. I would not hesitate to purchase this brand again.
Great experience buying a mattress. Knowledgeable, helpful, and not sales-y at all. There's a huge selection, but Johnny was able to help us narrow it down quickly based on our preferences and needs. Prices are reasonable (especially when you buy when there's a deal going on). We made our purchase at the end of the day, and the mattress was delivered (free) the next day without a hitch. Highly recommend!View More Reviews
Read the returns policy very carefully. We bought a $2000 mattress here 7 months ago. We carefully selected it in the store and it was delivered the following day. The first night we slept on it the mattress felt as hard as wet sand. I rang Ortho the next day to say I hated the mattress and wanted to exchange it. They told me to check the 'Comfort Guarantee' on the invoice. The customer must sleep on the mattress for 30 nights before exchanging it and there will be an additional $100 delivery fee and a 20 % restocking fee, bringing the cost of our mattress to $2500 (now that is getting expensive). I told them I thought the mattress in the store was much softer than the mattress we were sent. They told me mattresses in the store had softened over time and so would mine. I thought why bother trying a different mattress in the store if the sample mattresses are so different to the delivered mattress? $2000 is a lot for a mattress but $2500 is seriously expensive and out of my price range. Now 7 months have passed and I still hate the mattress and it still is very hard and hurts my shoulders and neck. I wish we had bought from a store with a more generous returns policy.
I had purchased a queen size mattress from Ortho (Culver City, CA) in August of this year. For a long time (since I purchased it) I have been experiencing severe back pains when I wake up in the morning. At first I thought it was because of my pillows or because I may not be sleeping correctly, but after changing the pillows the pains till remained. I consulted a doctor and he told me that it could be because of the mattress! Now, after trying the same pillows on different mattresses and sleeping on that mattress without any pillows, or I would say all possible combinations, I think the problem is with the mattress. When I was at the store, the salesman was not at all helpful. I was there with my friends and all the time he was talking to his colleague while we had to figure out what mattress should we purchase to get maximum comfort. We had to ask for him every time we had a question. Besides, before purchasing the mattress I asked them if there were any exchange or return policies and the salesman told me that the mattress was neither exchangeable not can be returned! Which means that if the mattress doesn't suit you then there's no way you can exchange it with, probably, a better and expensive one and you are stuck!! I have spent over $400 on the mattress and now I cannot exchange or return it. I just wanted to mention that inspite of the poor customer service at the store I bought the mattress and I will say that this was THE WORST $400 I have ever spent in my life.
Went to get a new bed because it was time to move beyond the queen size mattress. I've bought two other mattresses in the past 4 years and this was the best experience by far! Dan was very knowledgeable and respectful and didn't give off that annoying mattress sales hustling vibe I have experienced at other places. We even left after choosing the mattress to just be sure by visiting other stores and that only confirmed that this ortho store was the best place to buy from. Only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was for the range of selection behind their internal brand, but even that was good just not ideal.
Four years ago I replaced my very long term Ortho Cal King Extra firm. It had a 25 year warranty and I had it for about 28 years. I loved that mattress for years and years and wanted to replace it with another, only a Queen based on the space now available. I went to a store in WeHo, CA, listed as an Ortho store and bought what the representative said would be closest to what I'd had and the price would be about $1,500.00, 50% higher than the one being replaced. We’ve had a lot of inflation in the intervening years so I shrugged and said, 'Ok.' I bought it. It was nothing like the one being replaced, much too soft. After about 18 months there started the development of a depression in the part of the bed where I sleep. That depression now requires SEVEN towels to raise the hole to the point where my back is not severely distorted. This is far worse than the Kapok mattress I slept on as a child. The reason for the original Ortho was on the suggestion of the surgeon after a reconstructive back surgery. It worked and I slept wonderfully on that mattress. This new one has a 20 year warranty, full replacement up to five years. I ask you, why would I want to replace it with another expensive piece of junk. I feel very ripped off and would like to know what happened to the products Ortho used to make? In the introductory comments there is mention that Ortho basically is a budget mattress. According to the Individual styles with commentary it would appear that they do have more lower end products than I'd known, but while it might not be the highest end unit on the market, I certainly do not consider $1,500.00 in the budget range. If you are considering an Ortho mattress I would strongly urge you to spend your money on something else. Sign me, "Oh, my aching back!"
This place is a fraud..... I purchased a mattress set paid $1,500.00 for it less than 3-years ago, and the mattress is worthless! I was given a 10-year warranty, which is worthless. I called to get the mattress set replaced since it suppose to be under warranty, because the mattress is sagging, when we sleep you sink into the mattress, which causes us to have back aches and sleepless nights, plus it's difficult to get in and out of bed since you sink in. When I called they said I had to pay $60.00 to have a third party inspector come to my home and inspect the mattress, so I paid since I had no choice, it took 3-weeks to get an inspector to come to my home to inspect the mattress, they I get a letter saying my claim is denied. They do not stand by their warranty, dishonest company.
I have been shopping for a mattress and have visited several stores. Johnny here was the most knowledge and courteous salesperson I have seen in all the stores. He took the time to really understand our needs and concerns and did his best to address them. I would definitely recommend him.
Adam was fantastic he is a wonderful sales man and a great person. You should ask for him anytime you go. He bent over backwards to meet our needs.
My husband and I walked in not knowing what to expect we were greeted by Cliff he listened to our needs made several suggestions was very knowledgeable and helpful. We walked away with a great mattress and very happy with service.
Great mattresses. Great service. I can't say enough great things about ortho mattress. Its a family owned business and even though I am in the military and tend to go to the Navy Exchange I will never go there for a mattress again. Pricewise the better deals and better mattresses are here. Navy Exchange had unknowledgable sales people. The location and delivery is convenient and quick
Just bought a mattress with Bernard at the mission valley location. I was shopping around all day at various places, Jerome's, Macy's, etc but found the best deal here. Not only did Bernard spend time going over the various types of mattresses but he also asked questions to ensure it was the right mattress for me. It was a very comfortable and non sales approach. I recommend you stop by and ask for Bernard if you're shopping around, give them a shot!
The salesman was awkward, condescending, and eventually insulting. He spoke to us like children... He would have never treated us like that had my husband been there. Most uncomfortable sales experience in which I have ever been involved.
Adam was vary helpfull. He got us set up with the best matrices I have ever been on. Got us set up with delivery and protection. This was the best experience of purchasing a mattress or any other furniture in my life time. This man was so friendly and nice, he realy helped us out on getting everything we needed.
I was very happy with their salesman Adam. He is both knowledgable about mattresses and a very likable guy. I felt at ease making my selection and not needing to go to other stores to shop further. There was never any pressure and he worked with me on the price. The delivery was on time as promised. I recommend Ortho and cheers to Adam! ... thank you.
Great customer service. Manager Michael goes out of his way to help and is very knowledgeable on different options. Shop when holiday sales are happening for the best deals.
Great costumer service and great variety of quality products. Michael was very helpful and friendly.
Purchased a mattress and 2 pillows. Do not purchase pillows here! The pillows are the worst. Felt like we were sleeping on rubber tires. They are unusable. I talked to the corporate office and they said I could pay to ship the pillows to corporate office and if there is a defect they would send replacement pillows. I already payed $200 for the pillows and refuse to pay for shipping to their corporate office. They would not honor paying for the UPS shipment. Hope no one else buys pillows from Ortho Mattress. Go to Sleep Train!
As soon as my husband and I walked through the front doors we knew this was going to be the right place for us to get our mattress. there was a very welcoming atmosphere and Scotty was one of the nicest guys ever! ! He really knew everything about mattresses! ! He gave us an incredible deal as we are newlyweds and we will definitely be coming back and referring family and friends. great place great customer service TAYLOR & GEOFF
If you're looking for a great mattress with phenomenal customer service, look no further! This place is the absolute Best! Michael and Joshua are knowledgable, genuine, and patient. They truly have your best interest at heart. Best mattress buying experience .
Ok, here's what's gonna happen. After endless nights, weeks, months, even years of sleeping on a sub-par mattress you're gonna take the leap to get a new bed. You're going to go to Ortho Mattress. You're going to ask for Karl. He's going to be incredibly knowledgable on all the different types of mattresses and beds out there. You're going to try different beds in the store, possibly to humor yourself with due diligence. But really none of that is going to matter because the mattress that you want is the Stearns & Foster Villa Julietta. You're going to melt into this mattress. It's like nothing you've ever experienced before. You're going to look at the price and think, "I can't afford this." Then you're going to mention this review and ask for the "special Karl price". He's gonna take care of you. Within days your new mattress will be delivered and you will live happily ever after. The End.
Good store, very knowledgable staff. Mary was so insightful and caring. My latex mattress is the best and I have her to thank. She was very patient with me. Choosing a mattress can be difficult when you don't know anything about them! These guys know the biz well. Very impressed. I'm extremely happy and I sleep awesome now :) I may go back for the adjustable addition one day.
Came in to browse mattresses as mine was totally ancient and needed to be replaced. All the employees were very helpful here, but adam ended up giving us a great deal that we couldn't refuse, so we ended up getting a mattress that day and didn't need to shop anywhere else! Thanks Adam!
Excellent service from Michael! He walked me through a selection of mattresses for our guest room and I found the perfect one in less than 10 mins! Highly recommend!
Great selection of mattresses and knowledgeable, friendly staff. I highly recommend working with Danny who helped me choose the perfect bed. He listened to what I was looking for and matched the perfect mattress accordingly. He did not up-sell me on an expensive mattress, in fact, he recommended I buy the mattress Ortho manufactures- which I did. They have great prices! He was honest and weighed the pros & cons of the various mattresses. They offer free delivery and free hauling of my old mattress. My sister had previously bought her mattress at this exact Ortho and had a great experience. I will gladly recommend this Ortho location to friends & family.
I've bought several beds from this location. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my mattress needs! PROs: Just bought my second iQ mattress from this store. By far best customer service that you could ever expect! The salesman "Scotty" was extremely knowledgable on all items in the store. We discussed exactly what we were looking for and he knew the perfect mattress for my wife and I. We bought one mattress set 2 months ago and loved it so much that were buying another set for our mom for Christmas. If you need a new mattress, pillows, or bed frames this is the BEST PLACE TO GO IN SAN DIEGO! CONs: Zero!
This place is great. Had the best customer service from Michael. Highly recommend this spot for a mattress
Excellent service here so happy with our purchase! Adam Pennington helped us out and he answered to our 100 questions, let us lay on every mattress and ultimately his initial suggestions were the best fit for us! Super fast service, worked with out budget and stayed at closing to finish up with us. Highly recommend!
Never thought I would rate and write a note about a mattress purchase, however, we received exceptional service and it is worth it to let others know of a great experience. Mike, the manager of this mattress store helped me months ago and explained in detail the features of the final three I was considering. He explained the pros and cons of each and I went with one that just felt better in the store. He said the only advantage of the one I didn't go with was that it stayed cooler at night and with the "good night sleep guarantee" I could exchange of not completely satisfied. I always wonders how genuine that promise was and sure Enough I ended up feeling warm at night and put the guarantee to the test. When I went back, Mike was there and was very receptive to my request to exchange and even had me try the one I wanted again to see if I still liked it. He said no problem Abd in fact that it was great sleep that he wanted for customers and that it was not inconvenient at all and that he was happy to exchange at the very small stated fee I. The guarantee. Kudos to ortho mattress for that policy and for Mike and his store for making it a pleasure to do business. Will shop there again next time needing a new mattress.
We seriously needed a new bed! We wanted a cool, fairly firm bed at a reasonable price. My husband is a back and side sleeper. I am a stomach and side sleeper. We had our work cut out for us... We went to the store on Camino de la Reina to check things out. That is when we met Scottie Beason! He is extremely knowledgeable, asks a lot of questions regarding sleep position and pointed us in the right direction. We are thrilled with our pick and are sleeping so much more comfortably! Lastly, I want to mention the two delivery men (Rolando and Brian) who went out of their way to set up the bed and remove our old bed. They were neat and thorough and very friendly.
I really enjoyed picking up a mattress here. They were quick and efficient with all of the choices. I needed a mattress immediately and didn't have a long time to spend in the store. I was in and out in less than an hour and I have an amazing mattress. I am so satisfied. Michael is a great person to talk to if you come into the store!
This is my second Ortho mattress, and the deal this time was just as great as last time! Adam worked with us for an hour to help us pick out the proper softness. Such a good experience I've even considered getting mattresses shipped from here to my family up north for my sister/her husband and my mom.
A lot more variety than other stores. Easy, a little more than we expected to spend but they helped us out a lot.
I went to this store because of their Sales tax promotion and the need for a more supportive mattress. Scottie was super helpful and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. So I sent my girlfriend over since her opinion really mattered the most. She met with Karl and found the right fit. I went back a week later and made the purchase that afternoon and it was delivered that evening. Now that is service! Highly recommend this shop. The delivery crew was super nice and cooperative. They even covered our old mattress in plastic in our garage, since we were donating it that weekend. Took about 40 minutes from beginning to end. My only complaint is there is a larger space between the head of the mattress and the headboard, so our pillow tends to fall into the gap after returning it from incline to flat. But that is minor at best.
A pretty big showroom with a wide selection of mattresses and very helpful salespeople. There is a parking lot located on the side of the store so no need to drive around looking for parking. You should be able to find a mattress that suits you. As we walked in, we were overwhelmed with the variety of mattresses and what the differences were. Mary helped us decipher what kind of mattress was best for us. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and very easy to talk to. She knew everything about the different mattresses and what kind of mattress fit our needs (taking into account back problems, etc.). She was comfortable and not pushy at all. We were able to get a very good deal on a mattress and felt comfortable with our purchase. They have a generous return policy and warranty. Delivery was free and the entire purchase was just very comfortable and easy. We will be returning for our next mattress purchase.
This was my first mattress buying experience and I'm very satisfied with my visit. Adam is very knowledgeable, non pressuring, and really helps you pick the right mattress for all of your comfort and financial needs! Thank you!!
They delivered the mattress and set it up. I told them it was set too high off the floor. They told me to try it and they would return and adjust it if I still felt it was too high. Well it remained too high. When I called the store they said it would cost me $120 to have them return and adjust it. I complained and they agreed to charge $65. The bed was over $ 4,200. They were in a hurry to get back home and did NOT TELL ME IT would cost me over $120 to have them return. Otherwise I would have insisted they set it up correctly in the first place. The manager acted like it was a big favor to charge me half to return. They also told me I should go buy special adhesive to attach the headboard as they didn't believe the included hardware would work. The customer service at this store sucks. Once they have your money it's very difficult to cancel. Go to any mattress store except this one.
I been shopping for a mattress for a couple of weeks now. Stopped by at Jeromes where I had an amazing sales guy spend over an hour educating me on mattresses, then went to mattress firm and thirdly went to ortho mattress with a guy named Alex. The guy didn't spend 5 minutes with me explaining nothing but rather half ass answering questions and after those 5 minutes he starts pressuring me like crazy that I needed to walk out with a mattress sold by him before I left. This guy has shit for brains! I won't even go back to Ortho mattress or consider them for anything. If they have a sales guy that is so crude and clueless and wants to force a sale when he hasn't spend any time educating me, the only thing he did is shit talk Jeromes and Mattress firm but gave zero technical data about why I should buy from them other than I've shopped enough and should buy their mattresses now. What a crude ignorant buffoon! then when I told him to give me his business card he got all upset and said don't bother ... what a jack ass! ... its hard to pick a mattress by lying on one for a minute but at least the Jerome's guy was a perfect gentleman and educated me rather than pressure me after 5 minutes in the store! ... this guy Alex reminds me of those meat heads that buy a girl a drink in the bar and think they are going to get laid after a 5 minute conversation! lame lame lame!
Loved our experience at Orho mattress today. Scott was super helpful, gave us a great deal, and provided great customer service. This was our second purchase at this Ortho location and my wife and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Can't wait for our mattress to get delivered on Monday. Highly recommend Ortho mattress and especially this location.
The salesman here was terrible. A thicker, bald guy, he was heavily pushing the temperpedic mattresses so much so that he wouldn't even answer questions about the other types without steering the conversation back to temperpedic. He would give no info (which were soft, firm, number of springs whatever), The only things he had to say about other models were reasons why they were a bad idea. Finally it started to feel like a waste of all of our time so I directly said 'We don't want a memory foam mattress.' He then immediately stopped speaking or making eye contact with me and spoke only to my husband, going so far as introducing himself and shaking my husband's hand while making no effort to shake mine! He asked my husband about our budget and when my husband gave him a number (less than a temperpedic) he began pushing the store brand memory foam mattress. When my husband didn't appear to be interested the salesman then stated that if it was a price issue we really did not need a king size and that a queen size temperpedic would be all we needed because we would be moving less because of how restful they are. Seriously?! As someone who has sales experience I understand that there were two things he was probably going for- the fat commission from a temperpedic and the points he received from his store for selling their brand. As a salesperson I can also tell you that when someone isn't interested in what you wish they would buy you suck it up, move forward, and show them something they could be interested in. This guy didn't even pretend to care about what we were interested in. And honestly I'm not sure there was anything I could've been interested in buying because the he was such a turn off I got out of there as soon as possible. I strongly suggest the sleep train right across the street for more options and better service.
We had a great experience at Ortho onWashington Blvd in Culver City. Our salesperson was so knowledgeable and friendly. He was so helpful and answered all of our questions. We didn't realize the multitude of options when it comes to buying a mattress! We found a great mattress thanks to Johnny Sawyer (I think that was his name). Never met a better salesperson! Very nice and genuine. Would highly recommend !
