With brands doing lots of work on their online reputation, it's pretty hard for an average shopper to get to the bottom of customer satisfaction. That said, customers report feeling comfortable with these mattresses overall. However, there were some folks that didn't feel the same way about the feel. so make sure to read on to learn if these mattresses will work for you.
Mattresses that are good at support are usually believed to be firm, but when we mention support, we're talking about materials that properly align the body. Most customers have rated this mattress well on its support, but rarely, there are some that don't find it as supportive as they would like.
Most experience these mattresses as having desirable edge support, which what customers want who sit on the edge of the mattress or roll away from the middle of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
By placing a bowling ball on different parts of a mattress, you can measure how well a mattress will support the spine. These mattresses do a good job at supporting the spine overall, but there are some folks who rarely experience some discomfort.
Getting a durable mattress is essential to shoppers, but some brands are not as focused on it as they should be. That said, these mattresses are better than average when it comes to durability. Most will sleep comfortably for 5 to 7 years, but some who use their mattress more than average will find that it doesn't last as long.
Discovering how folks really feel about a certain mattress is sometimes a hard thing -- especially with some companies moderating reviews. These mattresses, unfortunately, don't score as well with customers. There are still customers that are very satisfied, but many others who are not. Research more below to learn about the specifics of the mattresses.
Support isn't exactly the same as firmness. A well supportive mattress aligns the spine and leads to healthy sleep. Sadly, not everyone thinks these mattresses are truly supportive. Most customers are happy with the support right after purchase, but some have reported support issues as time as gone on.
For those that like to sit on the side of their bed, even edge support is essential. For most, these mattresses do a good job with edge support, but some didn't think that it was as comfortable long term as they had wished.
Finding a long lasting mattress is great, but it's not always that easy. Sadly, customers are not always pleased with the durability of these mattresses. This means that some folks may experience that their mattress lasts a decade, while other mattresses may only last a couple years. If you are a bigger person, take some time reading more before buying.
Amazing mattress and Amazing company! I am a professional athlete who competes for TeamUSA and I can't believe the difference this mattress has made in my performance and recovery! If you are looking for a new mattress I highly recommend this one!View More Reviews
All I can say is: get it and try it. You will love it.
I got the mattress and immediately fell in love with how well it treats my back. I can sleep most of the night on my back, with little to no need to toss and turn. My sleep on this mattress definitely feels more restful, and I don't wake up with as many aches and pains. I had a concern with a seam on the mattress, and the customer service was superb. All my questions and concerns were treated patiently and professionally, and met with outstanding resolutions.
I would not hesitate to recommend this mattress to friends and family. I am happy that they offer such a great return policy, because even though I didn't end up needing to use it, it made getting the mattress feel like a safe decision.
I have had the OSO queen size mattress for about 3 months now, and I wanted to wait for a few months before rating it. My wife has had back issues for about 15 years and it seems like we have spent thousands of dollars trying to find the right mattress. We have tried every kind of spring mattress and even tried other memory foam mattresses. My wife has not been able to have a decent sleep in a long time often waking achy and tired. When we received the OSO mattress in a box, very neat by the way, I opened it up and let it puff up for a few hours before bedtime. We tried the firm end the first night and found it was a little too firm for my wife, so we rotated the mattress to the soft end. After three weeks of sleeping on the soft end my wife was still waking up with a sore back, which worried us. But, after the three weeks, she started sleeping longer than her usual 5 hours a night. It was gradual, but now she is up to a 8 or 9 hours of sleep a night and she is loving the mattress. I guess she needed to work out the kinks from the previous bad springy mattresses. Based on how my wife is feeling these days, I would highly recommend this mattress.
Thank you OSO for your amazing design!
I'll admit it, I was a bit worried about buying my mattress online. I mean, who wouldn't be?? That said, I could not be more pleased. I have had the best three nights of sleep I have had in years, and it's legitimately due to my new mattress. I love the plush/soft side, and my Boston Terrier loves the firm side!
Seriously - thank you for providing an affordable, well-built, non-toxic, comfortable bed.
I have had major numbing in both of my arms while I sleep since 11 years ago. I awaken numerous times a night and have to reposition my arms so they will wake up. My husband and I received our OSO mattress a few months ago. The first morning after sleeping on this mattress, I woke up and realized my arms were not numb. Every night since then has given me the same results. I am so happy to finally sleep and not have the numbing issues I was having. I just can’t believe how much of a difference a mattress would make. Thank you!!!
My husband and I have been sleeping on our new OSO for a couple months now. The setup was super simple. The mattress is supportive yet soft. Our favorite part is that we don't disturb the other person when moving/shifting! So glad we invested in quality sleep.
I really appreciate the option of using the soft or firm side of this mattress. I prefer the soft, and find it very comfortable to sleep on. My wife and I are able to move on our side of the bed without causing much noticeable disruption to each other. We are very impressed with our new OSO mattress, and are very glad we made the purchase..
We love our OSO Mattress. We bought it after reading a friends review and thought we would take a chance. We are so happy we purchased it. No other mattress has been this great, it offers support while still being soft and comfortable. Thanks OSO!
This is the first mattress that I've ordered that was delivered in a box and I'm never going back. It was quick, free shipping, and I was able to open it and lay it out easily. I love how soft it is and how well I sleep every night! I will never go to another mattress.
I'd forgotten the experience of a true, undisturbed 7-8 hours of sleep! But I have it most nights on our new OSO mattress. My shoulders sink right in given being a side sleeper and I'm totally acclimated to the soft side. Very happy with the experience!
We purchased this bed for our toddler daughter as her "big girl bed", and not going to lie, we are all a bit jealous of her at this point! It is so soft, but just firm enough for a toddler! It is actually also perfect for cosleeping, not to firm or too soft. We have another bed made by a similar company and this one wins by a mile. Recently my mom came over and layed in the bed saying her back hurt. After getting up she felt so much better she literally ordered the bed the next day! Big fans over here...clearly ;)
I've had probabaly 7 different mattresses in my life and this has been the greatest! I wake up feeling refreshed and not sore like I'm used to. It's quite an upgrade! Thanks Oso!
The OSO mattress is extremely comfortable - it is nice and soft yet still supportive. I like the removable/washable cover, which will make it much easier to clean when needed. I would highly recommend trying one and would not hesitate to buy another the next time I need to replace or upgrade a mattress!
This is a great mattress. This is my second foam concept mattress. I will never go back to the traditional box-spring style. It really provides support where it is needed most. I would highly recommend.
This bed is amazing. You will not find a more comfortable or versatile bed at this price!! 10/10 would recommend.
The mattress arrived ahead of schedule in a box that was smaller than I expected. The sales person I spoke to when buying the mattress told me that we should move the box into the room before opening it. We put the mattress in our frame on top of the box spring and as soon as we cut into the plastic the mattress started expanding. The vacuum seal is unreal on these things! Within two minutes we had a regular size mattress. This mattress is absolutely perfect for our guest room! When I called my mom to ask if she preferred a hard or soft mattress for her visit she was grateful to have a choice (she picked soft!). Thanks OSO!
My OSO mattress is seriously amazing! I love the option between firm and soft and honestly, they both feel great!
Whenever I have friends stay over, my favorite thing is that I can't feel them move at all! I would definitely recommend this mattress to everyone, especially to anyone sharing a bed!
Worth every penny!!
I had terrible back pain and then started taking tylenol before bed. That helped some, but I would still get up with back pain. We got this new mattress and I haven't had to take Tylenol for my back and I now wake up without pain and can finally enjoy my day!
I got my new OSO mattress two weeks ago, and have loved every night of sleeping on it. I've woken up without ANY back pain, unlike the tightness I had every morning on my old mattress.
I also love the versatility of being able to choose soft or firm! I had no idea what my preference was, and the OSO made it easy to take the leap because I wasn't forced to choose. (I've been sleeping on the soft side.) And with their return policy, I had even more peace of mind.
This bed is amazing!!! When it first arrived I unpacked it and laid down a few hours later (after passing out immediately on it) I moved it to my bedroom. I would and have highly recommend it to anyone!
My husband and I purchased our king sized OSO mattress about 2 months ago. We have been thrilled. The set up was simple and getting it into our condo (up stairs and around corners) was no big deal with the creative packaging concept. It also had no chemical odor when we unpackaged (which I was concerned/skeptical about).
We sleep on the firm side and both love it. It is as cool as it claims (no waking up with a sweaty neck and back). I also struggle with poor circulation and arthritis and used to wake up every night with limbs that had fallen asleep/very achy from the bends and pressure points of our traditional mattress.
I have had significantly less issues with the OS0 and feel comfortable highly recommending it for arthritis/back pain. When it's time to purchase again, we will stick with OSO and never go back to a traditional box spring.
We are happy to finally have a mattress that is quiet, and comfy to sleep on. For years our classic mattress would bounce and make noise with every turn.
The OSO is like lying on a soft raft, supporting the parts that need it most. We like the "firmer' end now but anticipate switching to the soft end as we want- I enjoy options.
If you buy an OSO, buy sheets with regular pockets (not deep) for a smoother, unwrinkled look.
Love the versatility of soft and firm. Moving it in was so great compared to moving out our old king (traditional mattress).
Overall we like the mattress a lot.
Ive had a Sleep Number for years me and my wife like it. But... even with 20 levels you still particular for no reason feel like you are sleeping on an air bed at your moms house lol. We got a California King OSO, to replace the Sleep Number California King. This was a great decision, my wife was so in love she sleep through her work alarms. Its a great bed, id recommend it to anyone.
I've had my OSO now for over 7 months and couldn't be happier!
At first I was a little nervous purchasing a bed online. However, the 101 Night Promise helped me make the plunge! I loved being able to try out the bed in my own home to make sure it was right for me. I currently use the soft side, but knowing I can change over to the firm side if my preference ever changes is very comforting.
In addition, as a (somewhat) recent college graduate who is prone to moving every few years, the flexibility of the foam mattress and portability (being able to fold it and transport in my compact car) is also a huge plus.
I usually wake up 1-2 times during the night. With this mattress, slept completely through the night. Materials look super high quality, love that I could fold it up to get it through doorways.
I love the Oso mattress. There are some nights when I need to lay on the soft side and other nights when I need more support. I don't have to worry about needing a new mattress for different needs. The Oso mattress has also been very kind to my back after major surgery. I love it!
I've had a king size mattress for a few weeks now and this thing is amazing. I have never owned a foam mattress before and this is a great introduction. I love that you can choose what side to sleep on depending on how your body is feeling that day. Top notch!
I’ve never really had a comfortable mattress before so this has been one of the best decisions we've ever made! I’ve struggled with back pain for a few years and my pain has significantly been improved and I feel a million and one times better during the day!
The first night we tried the mattress we slept on the firm end and had a great sleep. The next night we slept on the soft end. We slept ok but it just seemed too soft. Even sitting on the bed putting socks on, it was just too soft. We would love a mattress that was completely firm.
Very luxurious feeling mattress, yet with a sleek and modern design. I really liked the handles, made it easy to move into my apartment and it's lighter weight. I started with the firm side them switched to soft. Love my OSO mattress! Would highly recommend!
I had such high hopes this mattress would be the answer to my back problems and I might actually get a full night's sleep for once. Alas, I was mistaken. I returned this mattress and went with a pillow top Serta.View More Reviews
Great sleep on this mattress!
Using on main bed. 2 weeks now and so far very pleased. This mattress offers a lot of support and is very comfortable. My husband and I are sleeping better than we have in a very long time. I was so skeptical to buy a mattress in a box. Wish I wouldn't have waited so long. This was a very good investment.
I could have spent more money on a higher end mattress but I decided to give this one a try. It's not bad for the price. It took me about 2-3 weeks to get used to but I am happy with the purchase. It does start to form a little bit of a dip in it but it is a gel/ foam mattress and it is to be expected. I have had multiple back surgeries and sometimes I do wake up stiff, but it would be way worse with a traditional spring mattress. I give it a solid 4 out of 5 stars for its quality compared to its price.
It has been over a year now since purchase and we are still very happy with this mattress. My wife has serious back problems so finding a mattress the makes her comfortable is difficult. Finding a mattress that makes her comfortable AND that I can sleep on is near impossible. This mattress offers the perfect balance of support and softness. Firm support with no pressure points, even for a side sleeper. After more than a year there has been no noticeable change in comfort.
this bed makes it so easy to roll over without sinking into a pillow top. So cool, no night sweats. For the money, best value in town. Add adjustable base with massage and you have the perfect sleeping majic
This bed offers great support especially if you have any back pain. Glad I took a chance on bed in a box.
One of the best purchases I've made in a long time. I've always liked an extra firm mattress but my arthritis doesn't agree any more. This mattress gives my body great support while giving way to all my curves. I highly recommend this one to anyone.
It's a terrible mattress
I love this mattress in a box. just take it out the box and be amazed. Your body will thank you in the morning
I am at a loss for words. I can only say SIMPLY AMAZING!! I suffer with back pain every day. I was desperate to try anything. The bed I have now was an expensive mattress for a platform bed. I thought that it would help my pain. Definitely NOT. I saw the reviews for this mattress and thought I would try. So here I am. It's just SIMPLY AMAZING I SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!! My legs are not falling asleep and I am not tossing and turning ALL NIGHT from the constant pain. I definitely will recommend to anyone.
Best bed I have ever owned including a sleep number. My wife and have back trouble but with this bed we wake up refreshed with no back pain.
This product is amazing a must have feels as if it was s high end mattes
Love the "mattress in a box". Very comfortable and packaged beautifully & delivery was very timely. Excellent transaction. I originally thought that the product delivered was not as pictured on-line. BUT, upon removing the delivery packaging, the mattress was in a box with wheels, just as pictured on-line. Very easy to manipulate and get it up the stairs. Your on-line Customer Service was responsive to my concerns and answered promptly.
Easy setup, very comfortable.
Started as a guest room mattress but I sleep on it regularly now. Very comfortable.
For my son..he loves it. It is a good memory foam!
I sleep like a baby on it.
Excellent product. I buy two. I recommend it to my family and freind.
Love big lots
This bed has been the best purchase I have ever made at this store. I hope to purchase another one for a Christmas present for my son. I can't imagine ever owning another mattress.
This started out in the guest room for my daughter when she was visiting from out of state. We needed something quick and easy to set up. Perfect solution - Now I use this as my primary bed. So comfortable. Makes counting sheep outdated. I have highly recommended this to friends and family. Purchasing another one today.
Now able to sleep through night without hip and shoulder pain.
I have fibromyalgia and this mattress is the best thing I have ever had to sleep on! No more dreading turning over because of the intense pain. This mattress releaves this by giving me just the right amount of support without being too hard.
It did take a couple of nights to get used to the firmness but now wouldn't trade it. Will be getting one for my extra room too
I buy two mattress one full one twin for my kids and is soo good for them
it is Great
I was having problems sleeping with my regular "thereaputic" bed! I have arthritis in my hips and lower back, so sometimes it was hard for me to sleep good and bit wake up with pain. But once we got our bed, I was sleeping more through the night and way less pain because of the support I got! Best bed ever purchased!!
BIG LOTS IS A GREAT STORE FOR ALL HOUSEHOLD NEEDS FURNITURE ,CLEANING,PROJECTS,CHILDREN, AND OUTDOORS. THANK YOU FOR BEING A GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD SHOPPING CENTER.
The purchase was perfect for me after a recent relocation from overseas. This bed was an ideal solution for me. I was able to go to Big Lots directly purchase from the store with a great bed frame. All packaged so that it could be transported in the car but they offer delivery as an option.
The only thing that could be a downside is that the protective cover I put over it takes from the softness. I love this mattress though. The box also fit in my small car.
Had comfortable sleep night after night on our cross-continent trip from Tennessee to Alaska.
Use in the guest room. Has been great. Definitely recommend 2 people when you take out of box.
It gives me the support and comfort I need. I've slept great since getting it.
We were looking for a more comfortable mattress for our camper that was firm-ish yet soft and conforming. We were at Big Lots and ran across this mattress and brought it home. It is literally the most comfortable mattress we own! We did add a 2" foam and featherbed to it as we found it slightly firmer than we wanted - but overall, this mattress rocks! I wish we had a king size one of these in our room at home and some twin size ones for the kids.
It's like getting into a new bed every night!!
This has been the best mattress we have ever bought. Yes we can spend more, but why when all the quality we were looking for in a memory foam mattress was right here in the Zeopedic . We would buy another if needed.
I like the bed overall I wouldn't trade it just don't buy it if you don't want any airflow and want to blow bubbles at night time because the bed holds to much heat and gets to hot.
We bought a replacement mattress for our camper and for our cottage. Both had limited space available to get the mattress in the rooms. Coming in the room with a box was much easier.
Have had more expensive mattresses in the past, this one was a little cheaper but is holding up better than the others. Have washed the liner and put it back on with no problem. I was afraid that it wouldn't fit right after being washed and dried, but fits just like new. Really like this product. Would purchase again.
