If you are considering one of these mattresses, make sure to read on for more information. Unfortunately, they get poor ratings from some customers. Some folks were very comfy in their new beds, but others reported discomfort with the feel.
Some of the customers don't feel that the mattresses support them well enough. Though most find these mattresses comfortable initally, if your body type is different than average, make sure to do more research before purchasing.
For those that are hoping for impressive edge support, you may want to take a look at the reviews as these mattresses have mixed reviews about edge support.
Mattresses that last a long a time are great, but not always easy to find. These mattresses are reported by customers to be not as durable as others. This means that some mattresses still may last years and years, while other customers find their mattress to break down quicker than expected. If you have a wider frame than average, make sure to do some more research because you may be at a higher risk for durability issues.
Sleepers don't always feel excellent about these mattresses. Some customers didn't have a good experience, but others were completely satisfied.

Bowling Ball & Density Tests
A popular test for reviewers, the bowling ball test is a good indicator of firmness and contouring, but also of support. If a mattress doesn't do well providing even support, some folks may experience back pain or other issues. However, these mattresses do a good job providing even support for sleepers.
These mattresses may not be as durable as you would hope after buying. Some sleepers describe issues with durability and comfort over a shorter than average timeline. If you are have a larger body type and are looking for something with lasting support, one of these mattresses may provide initial comfort, but make sure to do some more research before buying.
Ok, I know that was a lame headline but this mattress is a dream. Here is how it went down. The delivery was 2 days early (free shipping 3 days). It arrived wrapped in plastic rolled like a tightly rolled sleeping bag. This concerned me at first as I thought it it was much thinner than expected. However upset n opening it expanded to the promised thickness (this is my first memory foam mattress, so that may be a duh statement if you have ordered one before). It isn't too heavy for an average strength person, but I would recommend two people maneuver it on've open. It feels like a cloud and i just love it. It comes with a memory foam pillow (it was a nice surprise, but a detailed l may have missed in the discrption. I think you will love it.View More Reviews
So we got our queen size mattress in 3 days (In Hawaii). The box was the length of a queen bed, but it was rolled up like a log. It unrolled and expanded. The free pillow is great. I want to get another one. It's not too big like my other pillow that keeps my head tilted forward when I sleep. My old mattress was sagging in the middle so both my wife and I would get a sore back after sleeping on the bed. This mattress had great support and is rather firm. Part of that may be due to the mattress cover (since our little ones sometimes climb into bed with us). We ended up getting a 3" mattress topper and it was perfect. I think that's the route to go. Not much you can do if it feels too soft. It's not hot to sleep on either. Very happy with the purchase.
HERE'S THE THING ABOUT MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES: The heaviest part of your body is from your shoulders to your pelvic region. That part of your body sinks in more than the rest of your body. So, your head and your legs will be higher once you settle in a memory foam mattress. Whether it be on your side, on your back, or on your stomach. Your body is going to make a C shape whichever way you sleep. If you sleep side by side with someone, this effect only becomes worse as more weight is added to the middle of the bed. I'm 6'2" 210lbs, my gf is 5'4," maybe 130lbs. We create a big valley in the center of a memory foam bed that is very uncomfortable to sleep in. This would be an ok bed if you were sleeping alone possibly, and I only say possibly. We are going back to a nice pillow top. Nothing against this particular bed, because it is a decent bed for the price, I just don't think memory foam is the way to go simply because of the "C" effect that it causes. However, the memory foam pillow that came with it was absolutely fantastic. I just don't think the success memory foam has in pillows translates to beds. I hope this helps.
I was a little apprehensive about ordering this item but I read so many good reviews, I figured why not? The mattress was delivered on time and not damaged by fed ex. That's a plus. Unboxing the unit was easy. Be careful when cutting open the plastic mattress cover. Lay unit on your box spring before cutting as once it starts to rise and fill itself in, the mattress becomes hard to handle.
I found the mattress very comfy and surprisingly I slept very well the first night. The foam pillow was a plus. I read negative reviews regarding this foam pillow but I have no complaint. The pillow I currently have is so soft that my head sinks so far in that I have to fold the pillow in half there for sleeping with my head tilted all night , almost always waking up with neck pain. I woke up the first morning feeling super. No neck pain. No sleepless night as always. My husband however said he sank and felt as if he was touching the box spring itself. I am 5'3" and weight 150. He is 5'7" and weighs 250. I am hoping the mattress had time to expand itself while we were at work. I'll see how it goes for him tonight.
The only thing I found weird about this mattress is that the length of the foam mattress I'd about 2" longer then my queen box spring. And about an 1" wider. Must be defect or the company that made this mattress has different queen sizes they abide by. Not sure. No worries though. I'm not bothered by it. Beside the extra length, there is no complaint on my end. I would recommend.
Two twins ( for a King) easier to change sheets, lighter, arrived together. Opened, laid them out in spare bedroom to " air out and to regain its form". Comfy nights sleep that night and has been since. Been about 3 weeks, great results. Extra foam pillows were a huge plus. Thought I'd miss my plush pillow top. Nope. Paid big money, lasted about 4 years before side broke down, had no support. ( not very big people). Will never use pillow top or big name brand again. They don't " make them like they used to"!
Husband is severely arthritic. Never sleeps thru the night. Oh my, how life has changed for both of us. Full nights sleep and restful at that.
Would highly recommend anyone try these products. Had questions, promptly answered, by Dan. Very impressed. Thanks, guys.
This is the best mattress I have ever owned. I know people who spent a lot of money on memory foam mattresses and said that mine feels the same. It is very firm. I was not sure if I was going to like that the first night. But I woke up the next day feeling like I slept like a rock. I have been getting some of the best sleep ever and haven't been waking up in pain. It took some getting used to but now I can't imagine sleeping on anything else. The price and quality of this mattress cannot really be beat!!!! Also, I am using this with the sleep master platform bed frame and mattress foundation. One of the ones you do not need a box-spring for. It works great and was so inexpensive to piece this together.
Recommended for the quality at the affordable price. I found out about this mattress from an article on scoliosis. I was worry it will still be too soft for me but it actually has good support and was comfortable to sleep on.
Areas to improve:
Wish it has handles on the side. It is big, thick and heavy, was not easy to grab and adjust it after unpacking. It expands almost instantly.
The Queen size I got didn't quite fit my queen bed I got from ikea. It's a bit too long, didn't tuck in the frame...no big deal, just wondered why.
I would have given it a 5 but the box was in pretty bad shape by the time it got to me. It did get to me in 2 days it was light weight easy to get up to my room. I didn't smell anything weird when I cut the plastic off and it filled out pretty quickly. I was expecting a firmer support, but it's still extremely comfortable since day one my sleep has been better and my back is not as tense from before I don't toss and turn anymore the pillows are a nice bonus super comfortable I definitely recommend this product
I have to say my son was having back pain for a long time. His old mattress was only 3 years old. It was also expensive. One of the reason I didn't want to get him another mattress. He kept on with back pain, so I went online and research on mattresses. I came across RESORT SLEEP COOL MEMORY FOAM. I read all the reviews and I said " ok..let's give it a try. My son is so "HAPPY" I ordered the Resort Memory Foam. He's been sleeping very well on it. One of the things I noticed also, no ODOR!!! I am telling you I had memory foam mattress before and it smelled bad. This product had no strong ODOR or SMELL. Also the mattress goes on well on the bed. (platform). We are satisfied with RESORT SLEEP 10 inch Cool Memory Foam. One more thing, the mattress stay cool. I have good sheets on them, ...my son loves his bed!!
Mattress was folded in half then rolled and wrapped up tightly in an even a smaller box than my twin mattress bought separately from a different brand. Upon letting it aired and plumbed as instructed, disappointment hit! The mattress is extremely plush and NOTHING as described. I weight 105lbs. and I am sunk in about 1/2 way down on the mattress. I tried to turn to my side and my arm goes numb after less than 4 minutes. I am sunk badly into the mattress no matter the position - my back or side. Quite surprised to see this mattress gotten awesome reviews! Is this a case of defective product? I can't chance it and just return it. Can't risk a bad night sleep and frequent visit to the chiropractor.
I purchased this mattress based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews and because of its affordability. The mattress is firm yet comfortable. I had bought a foam topper in anticipating I would want a little more softness and have since discovered I don't need it it at all. Even the pillow is nice. I am very pleased. I would make this purchase again.
What a great mattress, and at a fraction of the price of name brands. A bit firm, but that's comfortable to me.
Came compressed in a plastic wrap, once the wrap is removed it expands to full size in no time.
Also, there is no nasty rubber smell like other memory foam mattresses I've had.
Works great with my adjustable bed base.
The free pillow is very nice too.
Just got this delivered yesterday and I am letting it fill to its correct size as I write this so I haven't slept on it yet. I have added a photo of what it looked like when it was delivered yesterday. Also the smell that people are talking about when you unpack it is there but it isn't very strong at all. The free pillows are a complete joke they feel as though the are filled with popcorn..not even suitable as a dog pillow. Very fast delivery.
I have 3 nights of sleep on it, wake up virtually pain free less and less every day, I was having to take a sleeping medication but since this mattress I will wean myself off of them..... crazy I know .... but close to being magic..... my wife suffers from RA and other medical conditions she too has had a wonderful sleep experience
Literally, the best sleep I've had since a back surgery in 08!!! I'm usually up and hurting at around 3am, I've been sleeping until 7 since this mattress was delivered!!!! WOW, IM INCREDIBLY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE!!!!! Ultra fast delivery and awesome price. I can't ask for anything more!!!!
This Mattress is the best choice, replacing a sleep by number that is over 20 yrs old. I wish I would've bought a long time ago. The price is definatly right.
I'm sleeping better now. The mattress seemed a bit firm at first, but conformed to our bodys shortly. No pressure points at all.
We have been using this for about a week now, and would recomend to anyone interested in a good nites sleep.
I live with chronic illness and the pressure points in a regular mattress cause me pain. I could immediately tell the difference on the first night. Well worth the price and i wish i had thought of it sooner. More than pleased with this product.
This mattress is nice, came in a box had a little damage to the box but the mattress was just fine, everything matteress an pillow ultra comfortable really nice! Expanded to the right size an all. First night was great slept really well and I think its all gonna get better and better! Happy with quality an all around look feel comfort of the mattress.
This arrived yesterday, and I can't be more pleased with the quality and comfort. It took shorter than expected to expand (I received it in the afternoon and slept on it that night). There was absolutely NO odor at all from the mattress. The only a article with a slight odor is the bonus pillow that came with it (seriously - it does expand - not as fast as the mattress - give the pillow time). I purchase the Amazon basics sheets with this an seriously had the best sleep in a long time. It's not soft, but it's not firm. I consider it in the middle, which is what I was looking for. This has a quality of mattresses four times the price (I've been shopping for a while). The cover (comes on it, will zip off) is really convenient for washing. Go for it!
My old pillow-top mattress was nearly 13 years old and it was time for a change. I had friends who'd bought foam mattresses and one who had bought one of these and recommended it to me. Don't let the price fool you, this is an incredible buy! They sell these on their own site for much more but here, at this price, you don't get the 100 Night Trial.
Everything was as the seller described. It arrived in its (relatively) small box. I removed it, put it on the box spring and slept on it that night. It has taken a little getting used to because it's not "springy" like the old, traditional mattress was. It's also a little firmer than some of the reviews give it credit for but that was a good thing for me. On a firmness scale of 1 - 10, I'd give it a 7-8 but it's not "hard" at all. The foam really does give nicely for hips and elbows and whatnot. It also sleeps cool, a must for me. I would recommend this highly!
For the money, it is an amazing bed. They shipped Prime to Hawaii.Which was rare for queen beds on Amazon. I paid over 2k once for a bed from those high end stores. This one is better. Went to bed with back pain last night. Woke up with none. My opinion is that this is a medium softwise. Love it so far. Photo is before deployment. Buy this bed.
The mattress is very comfortable and conforms to your body as you sleep, which really helps reduce the pain and discomfort in my pressure points. I've tried other memory foam mattresses in the past, but they do not do a very good job of supporting me and eventually, I just ended up returning them. This mattress is definitely a keeper.
The Resort Sleep Mattress is doing a great job with both support and comfort, and it doesn't make me feel stifled during warm weather. And as a double bonus, this mattress costs a fraction of what I paid for my other memory foam mattresses and traditional mattresses as well...this was shocking, but certainly a welcomed surprise. And I love the pillow too, very nice. I highly recommend this mattress for those who value a pain-free, blissful night's sleep.
We've had a Sleep Number bed for many years and it's been a great mattress. I had to add a topper because I have Fibromyalgia, then recently my husband has had major problems with a bulging disc and the SN bed didn't help his back at all. He couldn't get it blown up to be firm enough for his back, and often woke up in the mornings unable to walk. We started looking into getting a different mattress, and I've been reading reviews on every different kind. I just couldn't bring myself to spend thousands of dollars on a mattress that may not work. I decided to give the Resort a try after reading all the reviews, especially ones about people with back problems and who talked about the fact they didn't feel excessive heat as my husband tends to give off lots of heat and we live in the South. So far he loves the mattress. His back has been great, he's slept really well, doesn't feel hot and sweaty, and he's thrilled with the way the mattress sleeps. I've felt comfortable, so we're pleased. I'll be back in six months or so to give you an update as we've only had the mattress a few days.
This mattress is so awesome! We have been using memory foam since I met my husband almost 10 yrs ago and discovered the mattress in his truck was a cheap spring mattress. He had no idea he had other choices. At the time, I was merely looking to change it to a foam mattress but then discovered memory foam toppers. He could not believe the difference! Since then the industry has upgraded to integrated memory foam in with dense foam such as this one. This 10" is 2" deeper than our last one and yes, it is that much better. Highly recommend.
Coming from a guy with Rheumatoid Arthritis, this bed is the greatest thing ever. Not the greatest bed ever, but the greatest thing ever. I sleep like a baby and wake up without joint pain. It's extremely comfortable, regulates my temperature nicely, and provides firm support that holds you in comfortable positions throughout the night. The bed expanded in about 12 hours, and has not sunken in at all over the last few weeks of use. Assuming this holds up, I may be ordering another bed for my college room as well.
This review is being written after less than a week so durability is one aspect that I cannot comment on. That being said, the mattress has exceeded my expectations. It is medium to firm and conforms to your body giving excellent support to all parts yet you have the comfortable feel that you are on a flat surface.
My wife and I slept well on it and this might be one of the most comfortable mattress we have been on.
Set up was easy but a clear label indicating which side of the mattress should be up would have been helpful especially with the king size. Although the mattress appears to inflate in one hour or less, we allowed it more than 24 hours to insure that it was as close to 100% expanded as possible.
The mattress is priced very reasonably and the added pillow was a nice bonus but one pillow for a king sized mattress is not enough for two. ( Suggestion to Resort Sleep include 2 and adjust the price or place a coupon in the box so customers can order another one if they like.)
Over all I would rate this amazing mattress 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone seeking a new mattress to improve their sleep.
I have scoliosis and googled a bed that would be good for my spine. This bed popped up on my searches, so with the price, I decided to give it a try. I have been sleeping on a pillow top mattress for years, knowing that a soft bed is not good for my back. I received this in the mail FAST and got a little nervous when taking it out of the vacuum sealed package. As it opened, I almost started thinking this was another thing I wasted my money on....but I had to give it a shot since I was already in too deep. It came with a pillow that some have reviewed as flimsy and no good, but I slept on it anyway. I woke up renewed. My neck wasn't in pain. I rolled right out of bed, after being sick for a week, and I finally had some energy. I was the most rockin nurse at work that day, others even made comments about how quick I was moving! This old lady (early 40's) just needed a new bed! I love it and will be getting my kid one very soon. Also, I usually wake up a little sweaty with that old bed, but not this one. Love it! Now I just need to get a platform for it, since right now it is sitting on top of my old box spring.
UPDATE 12/18/2015 - The only reason I did not give this mattress a one-star rating is that it seems to be well made and the description did state it is a 7 to 8 on a 10-point scale (1 being the softest and 10 being the hardest). But in my opinion, it is more like a 9.5!
I really tried to like this mattress and I gave it a couple weeks before I left my initial review (which was a more positive one at the time). I thought maybe I just needed some more time to get used to the firmness of the bed, as it is firmer than anything I have slept on before (including my last memory foam mattress that I used for several years, which was soft and supportive) But then a few days later my troubles really began. I started waking up in the mornings with horrible lower back pain. The pain would subside later in the day, only to return once I slept on this mattress again. I tried a topper on it and thought that would take care of the problem, but then I started getting aches and pains in other areas of my body. I decided to remove the topper and try sleeping again just on the mattress. I could not get comfortable no matter what position I was in. I got on my side, with a pillow between my legs, and dozed off. I woke up a short time later with an aching shoulder, hip, and leg on the side I was lying on.
Today, I went to a store and purchased a new mattress because I just could not stand to sleep on this one any longer. It was hurting me badly!
There are a lot of positive reviews on this mattress, which is what helped me make the decision to purchase it. I don't understand how it can have such positive feedback, because it is the worst mattress I have ever slept on. And I like a firm mattress! But I don't want to sleep on something that is like sleeping on a slab of concrete. Memory foam is supposed to relieve pressure points. But this mattress seems to push back against you with all its might!
This mattress has broke me from ever again wanting to purchase another bed online. From now on, I want to try it before I buy it. Now I am stuck trying to get rid of this thing. There is no way I can roll it back up and ship it back for a refund. The seller did offer a full refund when I messaged about my experience with the bed. But again, I cannot deal with the hassle and expense of shipping it back. I will have to try and sell it locally.
This is our second purchase of this mattress. First was a guest for our spare bedroom and now a king for the master at our vacation hone. I expect to purchase a third for our home in Indianapolis soon. Very pleased as you could guess. Glad I did not waste my money purchasing a more expensive brand.
As a followup..We did purchase a third Resort sleep 10 inch memory foam mattress for a home in Indianapolis I have to say just like the first two I now turn I think only because of habit, not because I am sore. We have two more bedrooms and I expect my total purchase will probably be a total of five mattresses! Great product great service fast delivery couldn't expect anything better.
Bought this matress a month ago...at 1st it was really hard to get used to...our old matress was a pillow top and I loved it but it was starting to sink in the middle and make horrible noises getting in and out of bed...with my new matress no noise..no sinking..and I don't get up hurting in the morning...it is a very very very firm matress...so far so good...not getting 5 stars because it is a little too firm but for the price you can't beat it
I bought this queen mattress and the 14" Zinus bed frame for our son's college apartment. He has a bad back due to a car accident, sports injuries, stress and may have some arthritis. He had a horrible time sleeping on the mattress in his previous furnished apartment.
He is a big guy, 6', 200 lbs and his body temp runs high. He says it is the most comfortable bed he has slept on and it does NOT sleep hot (can be an issue with some latex mattresses). He loves it. His roommate also needed a mattress, tried it and ordered one for himself as well.
By not needing a box spring, it is one less thing to buy and gives you valuable storage space beneath, which is so needed in a college apartment. We did order an anti-slip rug pad (to go under the mattress and on top of the frame) to help the mattress not shift on the bed frame, as the frame does not have any side rails to keep the mattress in place.
This was purchased as a gift for my daughter. She handled bringing the mattress and setting it up on a bed frame by herself. This is no small achievement when you're five ft two. She earned that superb first nights sleep! She reports that it is very comfortable. I will definitely be purchasing a second one soon.
There was a very slight chemical smell on set up but it faded quickly.
It's pretty neat to order a bed online and have it shipped directly to your front door. It's crazy how they can compress such a large bed to such a small size. It rolled out fine and popped up to size. When I first laid on it I was worried because it was as hard as a rock. You do sink in and I don't have any complaints. I have been sleeping on the bed fora couple of weeks now. I'm a side sleeper and have sciatica pain so I'm really sensitive to pressure zones. I haven't had any issues with pain or discomfort.
This mattress is very comfortable. I have been sleeping on spring mattresses for 60 years and I was hesitant to buy a mattress online and a foam mattress. So glad I finally made the decision to purchase because I love this mattress and it the price made it a great deal!! Soft yet firm enough to make for a very comfortable sleep.You won't regret making this purchase!!
This arrived very fast and once I took it out of the box, it didn't take more than an hour or two to take full form. It is a bit firm, so if that's what you're looking for, this is your bed. It also came with a bonus memory foam pillow, which I wasn't expecting so maybe I missed that somewhere, but I love that too. Also pretty firm. There was no smell upon opening the box which I believe I read in some reviews that they smelled something but the odor went away after a day or two. I did not experience any of that. I slept on the bed a few hours after opening. It's very good quality and I would recommend it.
Love this bed. It has the right combination of comfort. I prefer a firm mattress, and this meets that expectation. My daughter (no back issues yet!) prefers a softer mattress, and she too thinks it is perfect. Can't explain that, but that's the truth. I bought the mattress for a guest room but we each took a night to try it out, so I fully expect it to be perfect for any guest. Also, there is no smell whatsoever upon opening. I had lots of questions, and the customer service was impeccable. I received responses almost immediately whether I sent my email at 10:00 a.m. or 10:00 p.m. And the price can't be beat! I tried one mattress that was twice the price and not nearly as comfortable. And the price gets even better when you factor in the bonus memory foam pillow. I recommend this mattress and this company enthusiastically!
I am a two time buyer of the Resort Sleep Queen Memory Foam mattress and highly recommend it! I bought my first memory foam mattress for my home. I had been experiencing hip pain from my old mattress and after sleeping on the Resort Sleep mattress my pain went away. The price is great for what you get. I had looked at more expensive Tempurpedic ones, but could not bear the high cost and the uncertainty if I would like a memory foam mattress or not. Based on the reviews and price of the Resort Sleep mattress I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did. I will never go back to sleeping on a pillow top/coil spring mattress again. I was so pleased with the mattress that I bought another one for my parents guest room. At home my mattress is set up on plywood and at my parents it is on an old box spring and must admit that I prefer the plywood setup.
I needed to get a foam mattress for a small city apartment with a narrow spiral staircase. I ended up getting this Resort Sleep mattress in a pinch because the foam mattress I had ordered from another company didn't get the delivery day right. Essentially, I needed a foam mattress delivered in under 24 hours and Resort Sleep was able to make this happen. It was inexpensive so I figured if it were bad, I'd just get another mattress later. Well, it is probably one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on! I have 2 high-end mattresses in my home that cost over $1500 each and this Resort Sleep mattress is WAY more comfortable than either of them! Amazingly, it's not even on a box spring! (Just on some bunky boards.) I am middle-aged woman with a wonky back so I'm not one of those people who can sleep on anything, either. I am actually going to give away one of my fancy mattresses at home and replace it with a Resort Sleep mattress.
I can't say enough good things about this mattress! The packaging was perfect and manageable, even for someone with a smaller frame and some neck problems. I'm a stomach and side sleeper, and for the first time in my life, I do not find myself tossing and turning to relieve pressure on the usual areas, such as ankles, hips, and shoulders. My neck feels better than it has in years. I tend to sleep very warm, and this mattress seems to alleviate that. It inflated beautifully within the first 24 hours, and there was no disagreeable smell. I love this mattress so much, that I have recommended it to quite a few people that I know are shopping around.
Firm and slightly conforms to your body. The paper that came with the mattress said to give it 24 hours to puff up and take shape. I let it sit on the floor for two days as it didnt look like it was fully formed in the 24 hours. There is a slight odor that has gone away after a few days. Im told this is typical of these types of mattresses. . Wasnt expecting this kind of quality for the price. Pleasant surprise.
It came with a free pillow which my cat took over while it was puffing up. Since I didnt plan on using it anyway, he now has a comfy place to sleep too.
BUYER BEWARE! The reviews on this are highly inaccurate. I bought mine in the middle of April and am going to be very honest...this mattress does NOT live up to the hype. For the money, it's worth the buy but for the quality it's worth the wait if using all the time.
Mattress was delivered timely in a box and easily set itself up after we "opened" it.
Mattress was good to sleep on nightly for about 3 months.
Mattress is durable and handles dogs.
Mattress had a funny smell(to be expected) for about 72 hours.
Mattress started to "lose" it's firmness and had a sinking feeling upon laying on it after 3 months.
Mattress is now the cause of many aches and pains.
Do buy this if you need a quest room mattress. Do NOT buy this if you plan on sleeping on it every night and need something semi-firm. If you like the soft sinking feeling, this could be a great buy. However, if you're like me and have lower back issues, do not buy this. As with anything, you pay for what you get. I didn't expect much out of a $300 mattress and I didn't get much. I gave it three stars because it's only worth three stars. This is NOT a 5 star buy unless you just need a guest room mattress.
The photo that I've attached is me pressing down with an outstretched hand and I am crouching so that none of my body weight is on top of it. The compression resulting is deep and shows the mattress is cheap.
there is only two layers of the foam, one is the white memory about 1", then it's the yellow regular foam, about 5", it's not like what it says 3 layers of foam, you can buy these two layers in Walmart with a much cheaper price.
This is a really comfortable mattress! We bought the twin size for our 5-year-old, but I'm thinking of getting a big one for us too. It did need to be aired out before use: the instructions recommended 48 hours and that was sufficient.
I was looking for a Memory foam "Queen" mattress around 8-10 inches thick for under $300 and after a week's research, zeroed in on this one based on the following:
1. Price - I don't think you'll find this kind of mattress with a better price anywhere on the internet.
2. Comfort - Like it is mentioned in the description, it is not too firm, and not too soft - Just the way I wanted. I have been using it for a week now and I can say it is quite exceptional. I can't say it is the best mattress you can ever find, but for this price, I think I can.
3. Shipping - Free Shipping and the mattress is packed in a hassle-free, easy to carry cylindrical bag (40 lb)
4. Odor - Unlike some have mentioned in their reviews, I didn't have a problem with the prolonged odor. There was a little "mattressy odor", but just for about 5 - 10 minutes.
Also, it just took 10-15 minutes for my mattress to restore to its original size. And I'm glad I bought it.
Bottom line - Awesome product!! Highly recommend it to people who like to sleep like a baby!
This bed is absolutely fantastic. My boyfriend immediately asked me where he could get one and was shocked that it only cost me 200 bucks. I've been recommending it to everyone. Minus one star for the packaging. It was so difficult for me to get out of the bag that I almost threw the darn thing through a wall. Other than that I am so extremely pleased with the quality and comfort of this mattress!
Update: I've been sleeping on this mattress for a few months now. About three months ago I woke up with a little back pain. It has been steadily getting worst and I now can't even lean forward without it hurting. I've had to spend a lot of money to get treatment and my doctor says this mattress is likely the cause. It's definitely a comfortable mattress, but it really doesn't give any support. I still like the mattress and will try adding a firm mattress topper to see if that fixes it. Minus one more star...
This has been by far the best mattress I've bought. Came 1 day early perfectly wrapped and boxed well , i opened it and laid it flat like it said and the bed came to FAST a little over 12 inches more like 13 inches (No complaints) the mattress feels great firm but yet soft with all my curves. It has a slight smell to it , not a bad smell just like a mix of plastic and hair Spray lol but again not a bad smell. All that matters is the mattress is awesome and the price is great!!! I am currently laying on it as I type. Tonight will be my 1st night sleeping on it so I will give an updated feed back in 2 days.. I know i will have nothing negative to say . The best feels GREAT.
Using it for almost 8 month. The middle part became soft and don't have a strong support for my body. The edge part is still firm because it's barely used. Won't choose memory foam mattress again.
Mattress shopping made easy!
3 year update -
Still as nice as the day I bought it.
No tearing or wear.
Comes with a high quality, washable cover!
I've never been more satisfied with a mattress.
It's comfortable. Priced well. And beats dealing with mattress salespeople.
I've seen places try to sell you a mattress like this for 550$. Never go mattress shopping again.
I am just going to be blunt here... I'm a crabby, cynical person most of the time. Or at least, I was. I am beginning to think that was a result of never in my life having gotten restful sleep. I can't really describe the feeling of waking up in the morning and feeling like I have the energy to face the day, instead of trying to figure out how I can sleep a little longer and not get fired.
We've only had the mattress a week, but in that time I have gotten the best night's sleep I've ever had, every single night. I'm not exaggerating at all when I say I wish I had bought this mattress two years ago. I'll update the review periodically and if anything changes, but for now I have to say that the rest I get on this mattress far exceeds anything I ever expected, hoped for, or believed possible. Really. It's that good.
The mattress is firm, but comfortable. Perfect, really, for this 240-lb guy. My wife can't feel it when I move around or get up- it's as if we are on two different beds. She's a much daintier framed person than I am, and she says the firmness is perfect for her as well. The smell that some reviewers noted was not an issue for us. The manufacturer has either corrected that issue, or we have a bad sense of smell.
I will close by saying that I am not a person who embraces change readily. If it isn't broken, don't fix it. I was not that excited about getting this mattress because I have spent the past forty-odd years of my life sleeping on a particular mattress style, and I didn't expect to like having to get used to a different type of mattress. I love my wife though, so when she told me that it was either me or the old mattress that would be leaving the bedroom permanently, I did what any loving husband would do, and grumbled under my breath while I ordered this mattress.
I hope my wife doesn't see this review, because she was right. 100% totally right. The sort of thing I will never hear the end of. This mattress is amazing.
This went from being a slightly pliable cement slab to a saggy, mushy hammock in 6 months. So we probably got a total of 4 good months out of it. I only weigh 140 lbs and my wife weighs even less. I absolutely despise even the thought of chiropractors, but I had to visit one for the first time in my life today for the pain this is causing my back.
Not a good buy.
I've bought several memory foam beds over the years. You can spend thousands of dollars on big name brands in on-site stores, but you won't find anything that's more comfortable than a basic memory foam bed you can order online like this one for a fraction of the price. You'll probably want to replace whatever mattress you use in 5-8 years, so those that are advertised to last 20 years or longer aren't particularly useful anyway. This particular one didn't have the very strong sweet odor that memory foam products often have. Sometimes it takes days or maybe a few weeks for that odor to dissipate, but this product had just a whiff of that smell (which isn't offensive), and it was gone in 24 hours. Also, it didn't take more than an hour or so to expand to its full capacity. One thing about memory foam beds - they continue to "spread" over the long term, so you have to make sure to get a tight mattress protector and fitted sheets that will keep it from getting rounded corners and a saggy midriff. Finally, opening these can be tricky as they are so tightly wrapped that it's easy to accidentally slice through the mattress as you're trying to slit open the cardboard and then the plastic wrap it comes in. I would buy this again. For the price and the immediate comfort and good night's sleep, it's a steal.
I have only had this mattress for a short while so my review to this point is only for initial quality impressions. I will update this review periodically as to how it is holding up.
I purchased this mattress in the 12" queen size for my guest room. That was the last room in the house we hadn't already switched from traditional box spring to memory foam. When I unpacked it the first thing I noticed was the smell. Or I should say lack of smell. I absolutely LOVE the king memory foam mattress that I have in my master bedroom but it took nearly 2 weeks for the odd chemical smell to go away. This mattress had none. We had house guests arriving 2 days after the mattress so this was a big concern.
Another concern was the amount of time it would take to decompress. In my experience it's anywhere from 24-48 hours. Again, with guests arriving time was of the essence. I am posting a couple of pictures with my review. The first was taken just a few minutes after unpacking. The 2nd was taken no more than 4 hours later any I'd say the mattress was 98% "inflated". I took a measuring tape to it and the 12" mattress was already 11 1/2" thick at this point.
We did still stay off of it for 48 hours but our first house guests to use it gave it rave reviews! They had never slept on a memory foam mattress before but were now looking into getting one themselves. They were absolutely shocked at how little we paid. They said (and after testing myself I agree) that the mattress is firm without feeling too firm. There is a little sink... but not too much sink. More like laying on a firm cloud.
This mattress will get more use than the normal guest bed as both my wife and I use our guest room semi regularly so as not to disturb each others' sleep when our work schedules don't coincide. I really hope that this mattress maintains it's current feel after any breaking in period. I will update soon and let everyone know but for now I highly recommend this mattress!
This Mattress is great! I waited on writing this review for a couple months to be certain I wasn't biased from getting rid of my 12-year old spring mattress. It is wonderful to sleep on. Gone are my mornings of stretching and trying to pop my back and neck. I am a big guy - 6'4" 330Lbs, and the wife is a solid 5'11''. I was worried about sinking too much, but after reading hundreds of the reviews here on Amazon, researching foam density on my own, and fighting off salespeople at 3 different mattress stores We went ahead and got the 12" Signature Sleep King. Have I mentioned that this mattress is awesome.
We call it the giant marshmallow. Laying down on it you get the slow sinking feeling of a well earned sigh at the end of a long day. We also ordered the "Zinus Modern Studio Platform 1000 Metal Bed Frame" and it is a great height to sit on and put on shoes and socks, the edge does sink, but it does not throw you off. And bonus, without the need for a box-spring there is lots of storage underneath. The Hi-density bottom layer of foam prevents you from over-sinking and the memory foam on top is just enough to conform to my hip and shoulder even when I lay on my side. My only complaint, and it's not ever addressed in the reviews, is that it makes 'adult time' a little more work because there is no spring-back. The good side to that lack of bounce, is that there is almost no motion transferred, I could pretty much have a girlfriend over on my side without waking the wife on the other.
Love our mattress. We bought it almost 2 years ago and it is still great. It unfolded nicely out of the bag and was ready to sleep on after 24 hours. There was a smell to the mattress, but since then has not been noticeable. Especially with a mattress cover. This mattress does get hot without the mattress cover on, but my husband sleeps with a fan next to him and that seems to help. So glad I found this and didn't have to pay the crazy amount of money other brands ask for.
The mattress was not in a uniform shape, one side was 6" n other side 5". Did not like it and would not recommend to to someone too
Came rolled up, was easy to unpack and the odor problem seemed small to me. This is my first memory foam mattress and I am replacing an air bed. It took a couple nights to get used to the firm yet gentle support of memory foam but the way it traps body heat is more of an issue for me. If I fall asleep with even a thin quilt I awake overheated. I am finding by using just a sheet, or throwing off the covers when I first get warm enough I can reduce the accumulation of body heat significantly. Apparently, the sensitivity to too much heat varies widely among individuals so this may not be a problem for you.
The mattress comes with a stiff black backing on the cover so it works great without a frame. I find that getting up and down onto my 8" mattress on the floor is much less of a problem than I anticipated. The foam is so thick you can literally fall onto it with no fear of hitting the floor!
The manufacturer describes this product as "4 pound foam density/9 ILD-which is medium/firm". . . not true.
This mattress is SOFT, or Medium/Soft at best and one SINKS at least 5 inches while lying on it; maybe even a little more once the "foam support core" becomes warm with your body heat.
The packaging was nothing like the neat packaging of dual layer fabric and a plastic bag described in the instructional video posted by the manufacturer. Mine arrived unceremoniously wrapped in plastic film, and once it was freed from it, it became evident that its bottom was full of fabric debris and dust; not a good sign I must say in retrospect. Perhaps I did not receive the same quality of product that the manufacturer advertises on their Amazon post. Who knows, as most things from China, its quality was dubious straight out of the package.
The mattress was allowed to expand and regain its shape as instructed by the manufacturer. Heck, the girlfriend was over to stay the weekend with me, and we didn't even sleep on it for a couple of evenings thinking that it would firm up but no cigar. Fact of the matter is. . . This turned out to be a piece of junk that has brought nothing but sleepless nights tossing and turning and getting up to allow it to cool down a bit so that it regains its shape, to then start the same cycle of misery all over again. I'm definitely not keeping this hunk of. . . Soft Hot Intolerable Trash, and I hope that this review convinces you, reader, to think carefully before investing your hard earned shekels on it.
Save yourself the trouble and the sleepless nights, and spend the extra one or two hundred bucks on an American made product that has been tried and tested through and through.
Absolutely love it! I bought the 12" king size almost a month ago. It's delivered compressed and rolled up in a large box. Just open, unroll and let it rise! See it in action in my time-lapse video:) NOTE: In the video it was under 12" just after opening but has since risen to the full 12+ inches.
It's a firm mattress but super comfy and when you lay down you feel yourself slowly sink into the mattress a few inches as it conforms to the shape of your body. With my old spring mattress I was having back problems and tossed and turned waking up multiple times during the night. With this mattress I haven't had any more back problems and have been sleeping through the night for the first time in years! The only issue I've had is that I've over-slept a couple times!
We liked the price. That we give 5 stars!
The sheets stay on it - 5 stars
It is our first foam mattress so it just might be naturally SUPER firm -3 stars
But, it's very very very firm - if you like that then it's a great mattress.
Us, we prefer slightly less firm.
No odor - 5 stars
Love that it comes with it's own cover protector - 5 stars
Please let me know if my review helped!!
Well worth the money I would recommend to anyone with a size constrain such as RV or trailer use. Only downfall is it doesn't measure a true six inches but hey either do I.
this was a horrible mattress. Looks like it was built lower in the middle. There was no way to send it back it was sent to us. I had to trash this mattress. You can see the lower level in the photo
Well, let me keep this short. I'm one of those Amazon buyers that won't really give a review unless the product was exceptionally terrible or exceptionally good. With this foam mattress, I figured I'd give a review on it since it is one of the pricier items I have ever bought online. I am a 22 year old male student roughly 6 foot and 205 pounds - this mattress is the perfect fit for me in terms of firmness vs softness. Believe me when I say that two people can easily fit on this mattress and be equally comfy. The problem with my mattress is that 2 corners never inflated fully so if you're standing above the mattress looking down it appears lopsided. You can only really notice the dip if you put your pillow in the corner (if you have someone else sleeping in the bed with you) I'm not sure if customer service will do anything to correct this, but I'll contact them later and let you all know how it went.
We purchased this Feb 8, 2014 and it is still amazingly comfortable, as the day we purchased it. We have the King 12" version. I spent a ton of time researching different types of memory foam, densities, materials, etc... and scoured countless forums and read hundreds of reviews on amazon. I narrowed it down to 3 mattresses and ultimately decided to go with this one based on price and the excellent reviews. We had been sleeping on a coil-spring mattress for about 4 years and it was unbearably uncomfortable. It became warped and didn't lay flat. We both slept horribly on it and I often had back pain if I slept wrong on it.
This foam mattress shipped in a few days and was delivered under our car port. I took it upstairs by myself. It comes bundled in a long cylindrical bag about 1ft in diameter and 7ft long. I cut it open and made sure to flip it the correct direction before opening the interior bag. It folded out and expanded almost to full height within a few minutes. The ideal wait time is about 48-72hrs before sleeping on it; however, we only waited a day. We haven't experienced any sagging or other issues in the 8 months that we have owned it so far. Some reviews mentioned a bad smell, but ours really didn't have that bad of an odor. We vented it for the night and next morning and then slapped on a mattress protector and called it a day.
It is very comfortable, but also very different than an innerspring. The best way I could describe it, is that it is more stationary and solid. If one of us moves, it doesn't move the whole mattress; therefore, doesn't wake either of us up. Some reviews mentioned that it is firm and not comfortable to lay on your side. I did find it immediately more firm than my old mattress; however, I have had the best sleep on it out of any other mattress I've had. I sleep on my back, stomach and side, just depending on what is comfortable to me at the time. I also did not note any more heat coming off/staying in the mattress than a normal mattress. I sleep with the ac on on about 70 though. As far as durability, nothing has changed since we purchased it. The dog has had a few accidents on it while we were gone; however, thanks to the mattress protector we purchased, it was unharmed (King Size SafeRest Premium Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protector - Vinyl Free). I am 6' 2'', 230lbs and my lady is 5' 11'', 160lbs, so combined we have almost 400lbs on the bed. I would say it can easily hold up to that amount of weight without any issues. It was a night and day difference between our coil mattress and would never go back. If you are on the fence, I wouldn't hesitate to grab this. It can be had for under $400 and you can't find a better mattress at that price.
Having dealt with several different air mattress companies on Amazon, none lasted more than 90 days before either their seams burst, they distorted way out of shape, had a chamber let go, or some other issue. This in spite of the fact that the bed was generally used one or two days in a weeks time. So, decided to just buy a Foam mattress since that should last and if you figured out what I have paid over the last 11 months, it should be cheaper in the long run. So, I ordered this product. Here is what I found:
1. First, do not believe the description provided on Amazon or the video on how this unit will arrive and what it will look like. Perhaps at one point the company actually vacuum packed this in a tight plastic roll and then placed it inside of a nice carrier that you could move around, but no more. The unit arrived as a tightly rolled bundle in clear plastic that was NOT vacuum packed and not contained inside of a nice Blue movable container. This roll was in a shipping box that had obviously seen much better days.
2. When you release the plastic, the unit expands and un-rolls. ENSURE that you have this where you want it PRIOR to cutting the plastic away!! Once it is open it is a monster to try and move around by yourself!!!
3. Once the unit is open, there are conflicting instructions that tell you to either use right away or to wait for 48 hours. Within 20 minutes, the center of the bed had inflated, but the sides were VERY lacking. So, I waited 72 hours to do anything with it ( had a convenient trip so I was away for that time). Upon arrival back home, the bed was mostly evenly inflated with the center being slightly higher. Sat on the edge of the bed and immediately sank several inches (compressed to less than half of the original thickness). Moved about 2 feet in on the bed and there was very little compression.
4. So, made up the bed and waited another 24 hours to try the bed. Still same issue. If you sit on any edge of the bed, you sink much more than you would on any other type of mattress. The longer you sit there, the more you sink in!!! After three weeks, it is still the same.
5. As for the memory foam, I do not think that does very much at all for comfort unless you weight very little. I weigh 200 pounds and the foam provides very little support. It certainly gives, but that is about the extent of it. My pillow top mattress that is 20 years old had a lot more support than this bed does.
6. If you sleep in the exact middle of the bed, it is comfortable and well supported. If you move toward any edge, you lose support. So, if you are only going to use this for one person, it will probably work fine. If you are going to use it for two people, you might have issues.
I am not sure if the problem is that the unit was not vacuum packed and so the edges have lost some of their lift or what. But if I had known that it would do this, I would probably not have ordered it.
This bed is probably more usable as an occasional visitor bed than ANY air-mattress that I have tried, but that is about where I would stop. If I was going to make any suggestions here I would say go to a regular mattress place and try out their mattresses and see if you can find one that will work for you. I think you might be happier in the end.
Given the high ratings, I was really expecting to love it. But for some reason, my mattress didn't inflate properly. It's lumpy and the middle inflated the 10 inches but the edges didn't. I'll update my review if the replacement is any better.
Did not regain its size even after a week. My guest ended up sleep on the couch. Very disappointed. CR from Amazon asked me to dispose the mattress and they refunded the entire cost.
I was very cautious about buying a memory foam mattress and even more so... Buying online/ site-unseen. I couldn't be more happy with my choice! This bed is a good dream factory and REM enducer! Coupled with a great mattress protector/ cover (which I also bought here on Amazon and wrote a review) it is the perfect addition to my room. Some peeps wrote reviews about a chemical smell... I didn't experience that at all... Maybe because I put freshly laundered sheets (lavender detergent) on it before I took my nose dive into my #REMCycle. This is one of the smartest buys I've made on Amazon in my 10 years of using this site. I'm going to add a photo of how complete my room looks now... And after I hit submit in this review... I'm going to dive back into my bed for another nap!
Package was a wreck upon receipt. Notably, inner packaging, mattress wrapping is NOT as advertised or described. The mattress comes simply compressed in rolled up plastic, no "outer bag" as described. After 48 hours, this mattress has NOT "fully expanded," ends and edges are lumpy and misshapen. I have requested a refund through Amazon and will update results here but returns are simply impossible. Once you've broken the seal, without factory equipment and space to mechanically compress, roll and wrap, it will NOT fit back within the originally shipping box. You're either stuck with it or could try purchasing a queen size mattress box and try returning that way.
Noteworthy, I ordered the exact same mattress in a twin size for my boy. That box came clean and undamaged, although still no outer bag. Immediately that mattress expanded fully, I slept on it a few nights and loved it and after a few weeks I was confident enough to order the queen size for myself.
Before considering this mattress, read some of the "negative" reviews. I did, but after the twin size was nice I decided to risk it and purchase the queen. For me, that was a mistake. Way I see it, you've got a 50/50 chance...
I usually like a firm mattress but this was too firm. I bought it three months ago and finally realized that my back aches may be due to the mattress. So I purchased a memory foam 2 inch 3 lb density mattress overlay and instantly felt the difference. Much softer but not too soft.
This mattress is amazing I purchased a full a year ago because I loved my boyfriend's , it's so amazing my mom bought a queen for her self. Laying on this mattress will literally heal your body! I like a firm mattress and my mom likes a soft but we both love this one because it's firm but then it forms to your body which makes it feel like heaven!!
Great Mattress! I would've gave five stars if the packing wouldn't have ripped and my mattress wouldn't have a stain. That's a delivery and packing issue, but it's a great product.
Update: after a few months, we are still in love with this mattress. Best sleep I have ever had in my life. Go ahead and get it!! I will say that if you live in high humidity environments, the foam does become softer. We are in GA with average humidity and it is perfect for is. But I would recommend researching how your environment will affect the density of the foam.
So I was a bit skeptical about purchasing a mattress online, but after reading the 100's of reviews on this mattress I thought, How can so many people be wrong? I decided to purchase, and here is my experience. We received the mattress in a very short time, 4 days to be exact (ordered on Wednesday evening, arrived Monday morning). I purchased a platform bed to go along with this mattress, as we were upsizing from a queen to a king. The mattress arrived in great shape, and was vacuumed sealed to about 1" thickness, then rolled into a large tube like shape. Once we removed the outer packaging and exposed it to air, it inflated to full size almost instantly. This really was a neat thing to watch. We allowed the mattress to expand for 24 hours, but after the 24 hour mark we could not see a difference in size and it measured to a full 12 ". So we decided to go ahead and sleep on it. At first, the mattress was very firm. There is two sides to this mattress, one is just the white cover and the other is a grey side that has the zipper to remove the cover for washing. I accidentally placed the mattress with the grey side up then decided to leave it that way to see if it would be ok. It was waaayyyy too firm. After an hour, we flipped the mattress and realized there is about a 2"-3" soft foam on top of the dense foam that eliminated all of the firmness we were feeling on the other side. The feeling of this bed is hard to describe. It is soft and comforting, yet firm in all the right places. Moving from a spring mattress to foam, it has been an adjustment. I have adjusted well, but my husband says his butt and belly sink in and his feet feel awkward because they feel like they are elevated above the mattress. But know, this mattress is medium-firm. It is not soft and fluffy and a bed of roses. It is supportive, yet you feel the mattress molds around you. We are almost 1 week in, so I am hoping that our results stay positive! For the price, you are not going to get a better mattress. If you are wanting a PosturPedic, then skip this mattress and spend the $1500 on one. There is a difference in the price for a reason. This bed is great for Memory Foam beginners and those looking for an inexpensive option to comfort and support. If you are still sleeping on a spring mattress, its time to give it up and move on.
Initial Reaction: I. Freaking. Love. This. Mattress.
Now, let's not get too ahead of ourselves, I only recieved the thing yesterday. But I am in mattress heaven. I am a 30 year old, 5'6", 125 pound female who has been sleeping on the same coil spring mattress since I was 19. For the past I-don't-even-know-how-long I have not been sleeping well. I'll wake up in the middle of the night tossing and turning and cannot go back to sleep. Maybe once every three nights I would get a good-night's sleep. But, overall, I've been one very tired, very grouchy girl. Needless to say, I decided it was time for a new mattress.
Now, I'm not gonna lie, I had probably every 12-inch, full-sized memory foam mattress on Amazon "in my cart" at one point. I just couldn't decide which to pick. Ultimately, I came to this conclusion: Buying a mattress online without trying it out first is a GAMBLE. A big one. Now, I figured I could afford a $270 gamble much more easily than I could a $450 or $600 gamble. If I didn't like it, that would suck. I'd be mad, but at least I'd only be out $270 and not $450-$600. I'd be mad (Hello, single teacher here! I don't have deep pockets!), but I could survive it. And, given the reviews, ratings, and specs on this mattress, I decided to go all-in.
I'm feeling like I should hit up Vegas now or something, because it seems my gamble has DEFINITELY PAID OFF. This mattress is firm, but not too firm. Goldilocks-style, you know? Just right. Firm enough for sleeping on my back, soft enough for sleeping on my stomach or side. Every part of my body sinks in and is supported evenly -- the key word here being "supported." It fully supports ALL of me. And, for a girl with a butt my size, that says a lot. Generally my lower back, just over my butt, gets little to no support, because my big ol' hiney is taking it all. My upper back and butt make an arch and my lower back between gets left unsupported (like a foot with a high arch in a shoe with no egg). Lumbar support is my BFF. When I first laid down on my back on this mattress I really and truly felt little tingles in my lower back. It was like it had never felt the support before and it was cheering for it. Happy back = happy me. And on this mattress, I'm happy on my tummy, my side, and my back. I'm just... Happy!
Here's what I should note: I am a single girl and my adoration for this mattress is based solely on that. I have no idea how it would hold up if shared.
As far as pictures go, you can see pictures of the mattress from the product description, so I decided to add pictures of the packaging. The box it came in was a little beat up (and its ink got ALL OVER ME, so watch what you're wearing when you haul that box around!), but the mattress was still secure in its plastic wrap inside. While nothing was wrong with my mattress, I could easily see how others might get damaged in shipping. I guess that's just another gamble you have to take. And it was a little hefty and awkward to maneuver, but I managed to get it to my room, on my bed, and inside my mattress protector all by myself (and I'm no He-Man!).
Do I think you should buy this mattress? That's your gamble to take.
I unfortunately had to deal with the large items department to return this mattress twice as i received defective or not as advertised mattress twice.
I didn't notice any smell chemical or otherwise.
comes shipped in a bag that was easy to open and remove.
Bad: just about everything else.
Soft, but probably too soft. my three year old is enough weight to make it nearly compress to the box spring. maybe just two defective ones?
The packaging said made in china, but not really surprised.
The first mattress only expanded to just over 5 inches at the edge, and might have a peak around 6.5 or so in the center. (see picture)
The 2nd mattress only reached 4.5 inches and it had some sever deformities around the edges. I've shared pictures that show how only the middle sagged and never expanded. one corner was still flat and wouldn't expand. the inner edge that was wrapped the tightest (center of the role) was wrinkled and never recovered from shipping even well after the recommended 48 hours.
bottom line. I'l look elsewhere.
Update: after receiving a 2nd mattress with issues i purchased another one by visco kids from amazon. here is the link.
I just moved into my first (own) apartment and needed furniture. Sleeping on the floor is nice at first but gets old very quickly. I knew I wanted a queen-sized bed. Did not have a bedframe at first. Very surprised with the packaging, and to be quite honest, was skeptical about the comfort of the mattress (due to the low-profile nature... my previous mattress was a sealy pillowtop).
Immediately after unpacking, it aired out and measured just, under 6-inches thick. I slept on it that night, regardless. It was quite firm. Eventually purchased a used Ikea Malm bedframe and slid the mattress on top of the standard slats. It really does look quite nice. I've been sleeping on this mattress/bed for about 2.5-months now. I can't tell if I'm just getting used to it, or if it started to soften a bit. The mattress did seem like it contours and soften much better with time. Maybe its the slatted base too.
I recently went back to my parents' house and tried out my old mattress... I missed my new bed immediately.
Take-away message: Comfortable, but fairly firm at first (compared to a pillow-top). Modern-looking with a platform-style bed. Gets more comfortable with time. Slatted frame base may help with even weight dispersal and allows the bottom of the mattress to "breathe".
I really enjoyed this mattress for the first year, year and a half. Then my lower back started hurting, and about the same time my wife started complaining about her left shoulder hurting. This is the side she sleeps on. She slept in our guest room bed for about 2 weeks with no shoulder pain. Then came back to our room for the last week she has been complaining about her shoulder again. Well, it's been about 2 years now. Today I spent a lot of time examining the matress and observed that it was flimsy like a marshmellow. I actually sink in to it without the firmness and support it had when I first purchasec this mattress. This would explain my wife's shoulder pain and my back ache.
Just received this 8" twin version yesterday and am already very happy with what I see. Am letting it expand for the full 48 hours recommended before sleeping on it, but by touch it feels nicely firm and has a good tension to its surface already. The picture I've included was snapped less than 15 minutes after unwrapping, and the unwrapping was simple. I did NOT need to use a scissors to open the package. Also, there is ZERO odor. Shipping was quick. I'll update this review once I get a sleep or two under my belt with it. But so far, looks excellent!
UPDATE: Okay. I've slept on it and it is exactly what I wanted! A very firm mattress that provides excellent support. Again, this was pretty much full size within 24 hours and expanded quickly from the start. Also, again I will state for the record, there was ZERO odor with this. Just a great, great product!
SECOND UPDATE: And just for the record, per the info the came with the mattress, the actual dimensions are 75"L x 39"W x 8"H.
A YEAR LATER UPDATE: So. I've had this mattress for a year now and... I still love it! There has been no deterioration of the firmness over time. No odor. It has been perfect. I am very happy that I purchased this particular memory foam mattress and if and when I need a larger size, this brand will be at the top of my list of considerations.
Just had my first night sleeping on it! It was great, so comfortable. I think it was the best night sleep i had in a long time. One small issue I had was with shipping. I chose one day shipping with Saturday delivery becaue I'm moving in my new place on Saturday. It didn't arrive. So I had to sleep on the sofa for two miserable nights. But this has nothing to do with the mattress. It's all ups' fault. Amazon was really quick to refund me the shipping fee so that's good. Now back to the mattress. It came in a box which means it is easy to handle. A bit heavy but I had no trouble getting it to the third floor by myself. Unpacking is very easy too. You just need to be careful only cut one plastic cover (there are two) at a time. I accidentally cut both at the same time so the mattress was getting inflated in the middle of it, which didn't cause much problem though. Since I'm starting off in a new place, I have a bunch of other things to build and assemble. Unboxing the mattress might just be the easiest task.
People warned me against buying a mattress online and I was skeptical about it myself. But equivalent product in local stores will cost at least twice as much. Eventually, after reading many reviews, I decide to take the risk and I'm glad I did. Now I hope this review will be helpful to you if you are uncertain about purchasing a mattress (this one in particular) online (Amazon specifically).
This mattress is MUCH nicer than any other memory foam mattress we looked at! I got this to go on the top bunk of my 3 year old son's new bunk bed and we are SO glad we went with this instead of the one at Ikea that was $25 more. This one is about 1.5" thicker than that one, but I felt like this mattress is much more dense than the other one. My son has slept on this mattress for 3 nights now and he hasn't woke up any of those nights (He is usually up at least once a night, so this is a big deal!). I really feel like he is sleeping so much better on this than he was on the traditional inner spring mattress that he was using.
I was pleasantly surprised at how fast it fluffed up out of the package as well. I pulled it out a day before we set the bunk bed up, but it was fully fluffy and ready to use within about 6 hours. It did have a slight smell, but it was MUCH more tolerable than a lot of other memory foam products that we've tried over the years, and it was completely dissipated within 24 hours. If you stick your nose straight to the mattress now, you might be able to smell it a little bit, but its very very minimal.
Edited to add: the zip off cover is a phenomenal addition! So handy for cleaning!
Overall, I'm SUPER happy we went with this mattress! I think we will probably be getting another one to put on our guest bed as well!
Wow! Best thing I ever did. I was having lower back pain every morning sleeping on a too soft mattress. Since I began using the memory foam, absolutely zero back pain. Love it. Like the way it was packaged and shipped too; environmentally conscience. No odor or anything, just unpacked it, let it expand and began using it. I'll never go back to a spring mattress. Thank you memory foam!
