Resort Sleep offers a mid-range/mid-price memoryfoam and gel mattress. They sell almost exclusively on Amazon and some of their reviews complain about misadvertised width and misrepresentation of where the mattress is made. Although there are plenty of good reviews, please do your homework -- there are plenty of high quality mattresses for similar prices that don't involve the same risk.
Tuft and Needle made a big splash in the mattress industry when it offered one of the lowest cost all-foam mattresses in a box directly to customers. As one of the earliest players in the mattress-in-a-box space, they've done a good job branding themselves as a low priced alternative. However, recently they have launched their new Mint® mattress that is higher end and promises to be more comfortable. Does it stack up?

Finding out how sleepers really feel about a mattress is difficult business -- especially with all of the noise in the industry. These mattresses, sadly, aren't rated as well by sleepers. There are still those that love them, but many others have complaints. Make sure to read on to figure out if they will work for you.
Support isn't exactly the same as firmness. A well supportive mattress aligns the spine and leads to healthy sleep. Overall, these mattresses have had some mixed reviews when it comes to support. Most find that they provide a good amount of support at the beginning, but some have had issues with support over the long term.
For those that sit on the edge of their mattress in the morning, edge support is very important. These mattresses do well with edge support at first, but some may find that it doesn't work for them over time.
Everyone wants to find a mattress that will last over a decade, and when instead we get a mattress that hurts our backs after a couple months, we feel awful. That said, nowadays, it is getting harder and harder to find lasting comfort. With more companies than ever, companies fighting for profit at the demise of quality. When it comes to these mattresses, some folks had issues with discomfort over a short period of time. Not all customers will experience durability issues, but make sure to review the return and warranty policies before buying.
Customers don't always feel good about these mattresses. Some sleepers report feeling satisfaction with their new bed, but others not so much. Due to this, it is more difficult to predict whether one will work flawlessly for you. Do additional research below to learn from customers if one of these will work for you.
In terms of supportiveness, these mattresses get mixed reviews. Some customers feel comfortable with these mattresses and that they provide good support, but others weren't able to get comfortable. If you are larger than average, these mattresses may leave something to be desired.
Edge support is extremely important for those that want to sit on the side of their mattress without dipping down or becoming uncomfortable. Some may find that the edge support in these mattresses is not as robust as others.
Having comfort that lasts for years is one of the most important things for mattress shoppers. Though there are some reasons, like dust, that would mean we wouldn't want to sleep on the same mattress for over 15 years, we all would hope that our mattress would last longer if we still wanted it. These mattresses do well overall when it comes to durability. Most folks will find they last over 7 years, but there have been rare complaints about feel. If you are a bigger than average person, review the mattress specs 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.
I own and have used this mattress 1yr now. After numerous toppers I gave up and it is now in the guest room. I think it is made of a good foam but not for people that are not shaped like a log (hips and shoulders of equal width). My husband hated it and he likes firm mattresses. I have wide hips and an Apple shape. Felt like the mattress was fighting my bottom weight giving me the feeling of sleeping downhill (head down). The pressure on shoulders and hip became to much. After 4 different toppers that with or without covers would not stay in place I gave up.
I believe that this one size fits most mattress definitely does not work for heavier and disproportionately shaped persons. Maybe a mattress model with the same base but 2 additional inches of cushioning would work.
WOW. WOW. WOW! Love this mattress. We've had it for just about two months.
I read about it on Consumer Reports - it was their highest rated foam mattress, so I decided to take the plunge and buy it without "testing" it at a local mattress store.
I'm glad I did. We had our previous traditional mattress for twelve years - it was a great mattress (and twelve years ago, still cost $500 more than I paid for this Tuft & Needle mattress). It was a great mattress, so it would have been easy to be disappointed with our new mattress.
But, thankfully, that has not been the case. I weigh about 250, and my wife weighs half that much; nevertheless, we're both happy with this new mattress. Highly recommend it.
We've had this mattress for over a year now and it hasn't broken in like our last mattress. No need to flip or rotate. We originally bought this for our soon coming tiny house but it works just as good in our foundation home too. Like the day we bought it. I will buy one of these again and highly recommend these to all of my friends and family.
I love this foam mattress, and will not try other products any more!!!
Since I'm from Japan, and used to love to sleep on a Japanese traditional futon mattress, my husband and I decided to purchase this mattress. We previously bought a shiki-futon mattress from other company, and found it got thinner after using 1 month or so. So, we were worried if this foam mattress is the same as the previous useless mattress.
So far we have been using this mattress about for one month, but it has not got thinner at all. It's very comfortable that we sleep very well every night! My husband who used to snore loudly every day stopped making noise since we started sleeping on the mattress. I highly recommend this item to everyone!!!
I've officially given this mattress 6 months to win me over, and I have to say that I feel duped by all of the glowing reviews I've read.
I first entertained the idea of ordering this mattress because after buying the highest rated mattress from a leading consumer-driven magazine, and hating it because it was too firm, I was left with mere days to find a replacement, or face sleeping on the sofa indefinitely. So, because I'm pretty Amazon loyal, and after reading many reviews, and seeing that I could have the mattress delivered within 48 hours, I pulled the trigger and bought it. The first few night were unbearable -- firm, strong chemical odor, and overall much worse than the previous mattress I had just sent back. So, I invested a few hundred more dollars on a mattress topper, which had made absolutely no difference. After a few months, it started to sink in the places where we sleep, leaving sad people-shaped spots, so we flipped it over. I resent that I had to flip over a mattress that I've only owned a few months. (I should also note that flipping the mattress over has not made it any more comfortable.)
Overall, I'm underwhelmed by the quality of this mattress.
So my wife and I have been searching for a new bed and after two months of reading every review out there and going into the traditional stores we found an article about Tuft & Needle. I think it was NBC or ABC, I am honestly not quite sure but after reading that and then going to their website and then reading I think every review on Amazon we took the plunge and bought the California King size. And after a week of sleeping on the beds I couldn't be any happier than I am. The first day I slept in it I passed out so hard my wife had trouble waking me up and pretty much every day since then. It is honestly not too soft and not too firm.. I does lean more towards the firm side but that is ok and makes it perfect. On top of that when I get in and out of bed it doesn't seem to bother my wife as much as before when we had a traditional mattress. I highly recommend this bed and both my wife and I are extremely happy customers.
Absolutely the best mattress I have ever used. It doesn't make me hot, doesn't make me cold...I'm just comfortable all the time. Customer service stands by their guarantee.
I was recommended by a friend and Reddit to check out Tuft & Needle mattress when i was looking to upgrade. The webchat with the agent at Tuft and needle answered all the questions i had in regards to my concerns about the weight limit and the cooling factor.
I am a heavy set tall guy that loves sleeping in the cold, and this mattress did not disappoint. I rarely feel warm when I am using it, and that to me was important for me to get a good night sleep.
I bought the Saferest protector based of the recommendation of the Tuft & Needle rep, but sadly could not use it after about two weeks. it got too hot for me. and since I cant return it, its money down the drain.
Overall it was a very solid purchase. just watch out for which protector you buy as it can change the mattress itself.
I weight 220 lb and have been through 3 mattress in past 5 years nothing seemed to hold up or give correct support. Prior to getting this mattress I would wake up every night do to some back pain, and would end up sleeping on floor because it was more comfortable. As a practicing chiropractor I know the benefits of a good supportive night sleep has. This mattress in absolute the best mattress I've ever slept on.
I have to give this a mixed review which I will explain here. First off, the packaging was great, very compact and fun to watch it expand once fully unwrapped. It is mostly as described, very firm and feels like it will give you just enough play to be soft. However, my sleeping experience with it was not ideal, it stayed a bit too firm for my liking. I decided to return it which Amazon was amazing about so that is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 3. Please keep in mind this is a very firm sleeping mattress, I have multiple gel pads and mattress toppers at this point to try and make it sleep-able.
Plainly put, this is the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on. I've only ever owned spring mattresses, but this time around I decided I didn't want springs poking my back. I was also on a budget, so when someone sent me a link for a similar mattress, I dug deeper and came across Tuft & Needle. I was immediately sold on the ethos of the company -- the good quality affordable mattress, the cutting out of the unnecessary middle man (who really wants to deal with salespeople anyway?), the fact that T&N donates any mattresses that get returned, etc. Upon receiving my mattress, I was then sold on the full package. I love my T&N. It is the perfect mixture of firm (the bottom layer) and soft (the top layer). I found my mattress comfortable from night one, but after breaking it in for four or five nights, it was even better. I can't imagine wanting it any softer and I'm not even big on firm mattresses. It supports and envelopes at the same time, conforming to your body for the ultimate support. For anyone who receives their T&N and feels it is too firm -- give it a few days. You might love it after it breaks in. If not, know that it will go to someone in need. How awesome is that?!
My wife and I were looking for a new mattress and decided to look at online reviews. This was highly rated and we loved the return through charity aspect. We ended up ordering through Amazon to get it a few days quicker and have it arrive on a weekend. I built our slat bed frame from scratch. The mattress had 5-6 hrs to inflate before we slept on it. The first night I thought it might be just me sheer exhaustion from working on the bed. The second night I thought it might just be true. The third night I was sold. This is the best mattress that I have ever slept on in my 34 years on earth. I wake up rested and ready to blast through the day. I wake up without joint pain (ie shoulder, hip, lower back). If you are on the fence about this mattress, I challenge you to give it a try for a week.
I LOVE it!! After researching mattresses for a year or so I finally decided on Tuft and Needle's full size 10". Slept on this last night and had,the best sleep I've had in years. Not as hard as I thought it would be due to the reviews. I'd give it a 7/10; just enough softness with the support your body needs. Because I was nervous it might be too hard I bought a mattress topper/pad from Eluxury which added another layer of heaven. Thank you Tuft and Needle! Wonderful product I'm happy to put my stamp of approval on! Cheers!!
decent bed, but i wouldn't run around shouting about it or anything. i think i mostly like it cause it doesnt take up so much room, and I can move it around fairly easy. i originally bought it thinking it might help with my back/neck, but it didn't really help like i expected. still a decent bed though.
After extensive reading online we decided to go with Tuft & Needle because it seemed to be the firmest of the online mattresses. I think they must have changed the density of the mattress because it is NOT at all firm. We are very disappointed.
Most importantly though: returning through Amazon is a horrible, horrible experience. We read about Tuft & Needle's amazing return policy where you can get a full refund and donate it, which sounded great. When we went to return through Amazon we realized that they only do UPS pickups. UPS will not give us a window (except 9am to 7pm) as to when they will pick it up. My husband and I both work and I am very confused as to how this is going to work considering we cannot stay at home all day waiting for UPS to come. It is not at all clear how I should have the mattress ready for pickup. I just spoke to Amazon and they said I should have it by the front door. Considering it is on our 4th floor now (possible to carry up with two people when in box, impossible to carry down as one person without box) I don't know what the UPS man is going to do. They said if we miss three days of pickups then we will have to drop off at UPS location.
Buy through Tuft & Needle and not Amazon because of the Return policy.
On the fence on this one.
I've had this for about 2 weeks now and I gotta say, Hip pain disappeared within a few days. However, neck, shoulder and upper back pain developed.
Comfort and usability of the mattress greatly depends what you are going to be using it for. If you are ONLY sleeping, it should be ok.
If you plan on doing ANYTHING else, eg. Eating, sitting, watching tv, reading a book, meditating, I would not recommend it. You end up sinking in and lower back pain begins quite quickly to compensate. If you are sitting on the edge (including back near headboard) you will sink below the headboard. As far as sex ... probably better to get a spring mattress, this one has waaay too much give. Remember that you'll have two people (or more) with hands, knees etc in single points sinking in to the marshmallow like mattress. If sitting crosslegged in the middle is a core workout, sex is out of the question.
Sleeping, yeah, it's fine. Anything else, look for a spring mattress.

I wanted to love this mattress. I read all of the reviews, liked the concept of the company, and tried to give this a full try but this is truly the worst product I have purchased. I have not had a good night of sleep on this thing. I planned to return prior to the 100 day trial but then when I went to return I saw that since I had purchased on Amazon I only had 30 days to return which I had exceeded. My back and hips have been horribly tight since I purchased this and my wife has had much the same issues. At this point we will probably just eat the $600 and get something that does not hurt us
We've had this mattress for a little over 3 months now and I feel like I can finally share my final thoughts on it. I LOVE IT. I did weeks of research before making the decision to purchase this one. The other mattress we considered was the Casper, but after testing one out that was in our local West Elm store, we decided that it sunk way too much and probably wouldn't be supportive enough. I wanted a soft mattress and my husband wanted something firm. We found ourselves in a "3 Little Bears" story and were worried we weren't going to find something that was just right for the both of us. But after seeing that T&N gave a 100 day return policy, we took the plunge and bought a king size. It delivered in TWO DAYS! Amazing! I was concerned when we first purchased it because it was very firm, especially in comparison to our 13ish year old tempurpedic mattress (gross!) But it just showed me that having that old mattress was causing so many back problems for my husband and myself. Our tuft & needle mattress took a couple of weeks to "break in" or maybe we just adjusted to the new feeling of it. I purchased a zip mattress cover to prolong the life of it and protect our investment, and then I also purchased a 100% cotton mattress pad, it's not very thick so it doesn't compromise the true feel of the mattress, but just gives a little extra comfort.I wake up hot some nights, but probably because I wear sweatpants, sheets, blanket, and have a heavy goose feather down comforter. I call it my marshmallow bed, because it really is that comfortable. I was not paid to give this review, I just felt like contributing my opinion to those who are finding themselves in the same position as I was in. Solid ethical company, affordable product, comfortable, and chemical free.
I wanted to love this mattress so bad! I was excited to be supporting a seemingly great company. Unfortunately, after a few weeks of sleeping on this, I hate it. My back has been killing me and I frequently wake up with neck and arm pain throughout the night. My day to day tasks have become nearly unbearable to complete with all this back pain I have been having. I am a stay at home mom of 4, so you can imagine how important a good night of sleep is for me. I'll be returning as soon as I can figure out how.
After many years of service (probably too many), my wife and I decided to replace our big name brand memory foam mattress as it had developed permanent soft spots where we lay.
I spent a lot of time looking at different options online, and found the Tuft & Needle videos informative and entertaining. They offer a generous 100 day in home trial (unless you buy from Amazon - more on that in a moment) with the mattress likely to go to charity per their website if you do not like it. When I saw they are on Amazon with Prime shipping, I was sold.
So here is the short and long of it:
1) If you do buy this mattress, do not but it from Amazon. The 100 night trial does not apply, and mattress is subject to Amazon's 30 return policy. You don't like it? Of course you can return it, just pay return shipping and......
Have you ever considered trying to pack and send back a queen size mattress? Sure, it comes compressed and vacuum sealed in a box, but anyone have a queen size bed press and vacuum sealed at home? Yeah, me either.
Oh, and from their website in case you are interested (direct copy/paste): "PLEASE NOTE THAT BOTH THE 100 NIGHT TRIAL POLICY AND LIMITED WARRANTY APPLY ONLY TO ORIGINAL PURCHASERS OF GENUINE TUFT & NEEDLE MATTRESSES WHO PURCHASED THEIR PRODUCT(S) DIRECTLY FROM AN AUTHORIZED TUFT & NEEDLE DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL AND, IN THE CASE OF THE 100-NIGHT TRIAL, ONLY TO THOSE PURCHASERS WHO PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM TUFT & NEEDLE."
2) If you are a side sleeper, and don't enjoy shoulder pain, run. Run now.
This bed is firm. To firm. Well, in most places. It is oddly extra firm on the sides and softer in the middle. I would blame a box spring, if I used one, but this is sitting on a solid foundation.
When my wife and I are both in bed, we both hurt. The only time I get a comfortable nights rest is when she is working overnight and I sleep in the middle where it is softer. No too squishy soft. Just comfortable. Like I thought the whole mattress would be.
3) Made in the USA by a company owned by real people. I like this, but not at the loss of sleeping well and having a happy, well rested wife.
I am sure this mattress is right for a lot of people to have the ratings it does, but if you buy, buy direct without the benefits of Amazon Prime. The cost of not doing so are much greater.
Bought this mattress almost a year ago. Straight out it looked and felt just perfect. Don't even feel like putting a bed sheet on this thing. A little later we started noticing that when both me and my wife were sleeping on it it felt much less firm and we woke up with back and neck pains sometimes. When only one of us was sleeping it felt perfect. I think it's not able to completely take the weight of two people (we weight about 165 and 110 lbs respectively)
We had mostly gotten used to the feeling over the months but Recently we returned from a trip to India where we had a very firm mattress for a month and immediately felt the lack of support with mattress again and started having an uncomfortable sleep and started waking up with slight back pains.
It pains me to say this because it's such a beautiful mattress and when I'm the only one on it, it feels just heavenly.
We absolutely adore these mattresses! We got one for our 3-year-old as his first "big boy" bed and we all laid down on it and tried it out and loved it, so we bought a second for my 8-year-old! Easy to set up, easy to unpack, inflates quickly. It is a wonderful mix of the give of memory foam but the firmness of a solid mattress to get a mixed-feel mattress that doesn't appear to be severe in either area. Very happy with the price vs. what you get and will happily purchase again -- and will likely be replacing our king master bed with a Tuft soon!
I was a hesitant about ordering a mattress online without trying it first. I decided to go for it since the mattress is so highly rated. I must admit, that I was a little surprised at how much I liked it right away. I had no issues falling asleep. I tend to toss and turn a lot in my sleep, and the mattress is made so that your partner doesn't feel the movement. Needless to say, my wife is now sleeping like a baby. The mattress also keeps cool, so it's great to not feel so hot at times when staying in the same spot for too long. My wife wants to put a mattress top on it, but I'm a little against it. I think it'll take away from it, but we'll see. Overall, solid buy, and you can't go wrong with the price.
So this company said to give the bed a week. I gave it a little bit more than that, as I want to give a true review. The first week was great! I loved it, I had the best sleep. My back pain went away, and I stayed nice and cool. But now, I can already see where I usually sleep, and my husband sleeps. Its not a dramatic cave in, but if its doing it this early, I don't see this mattress lasting us 10 years, like this company said it would. I really wanted this to work, one because I believe in supporting small businesses, and two because we have been searching for years for a mattress to actually last us longer than a year. I don't see this lasting even close to a year. Oh and I also started to notice that the mattress is starting to make a plastic sound. Not all the time, like when I just move a leg, but like when I kneel on the bed or if I put my elbow into the bed. I wish it could stay how it was the first week we had it because I really did have the best sleep ever. I have read some reviews that said the bed was too stiff when they bought the bed, that is not the case for me. It was the best bed I have found, well until now. We might have to return this and pay for a more expensive bed. Like a tempur pedic.
UPDATE: Wow, I am so impressed with this company! They are quick at helping you, and do EVERYTHING they say they will. No extra hoops to jump through, and no small writing you didn't see. They are sending us a new mattress, AND they are taking care of the old one!! That is a huge plus for me. That would cost us time and money to get rid of it. We will be getting our new one soon. I will for sure keep updating, as I hope my next update will be 5 stars! I can't say enough about this company, customer service is fast, and they are very nice and helpful. Just all around an awesome company. I'm very glad we decided to push the buy button. Thank you very much Tuft & Needle
Tuft and Needle is a great company.
My wife and I purchased the mattress on Amazon and it was delivered, as promised, in a relatively tiny box. We unfurled it on our existing box spring and gave it a whirl.
It took about one week to find the mattress comfortable. The first few nights were pretty bad. I woke up feeling very stiff and sore. After my body adjusted, I fell in love with it. Unfortunately, my wife didn't feel the same way. After giving it a go for about 75 days, we decided to cash in on the return policy.
After reading the fine print on their website, it appeared that because I purchased on Amazon, they weren't going to honor the 100-day warranty. I prepared a very intense speech to deliver to the customer service rep, but it wasn't necessary.
Their customer service couldn't have been better. They walked me through the entire process of donating my mattress. Upon proof of donation, they confirmed that my payment would be processed. About 7 days later, a check came in the mail for the full purchase price, including sales tax. In order to avoid any issue with service, head on over and purchase the mattress directly from their website.
I still honestly still can't believe it. You can buy one of these mattresses with absolute confidence that if you don't like it, you can get your money back. I regret that it didn't work out for my family. We ended up buying a mattress at a local store for 4x the price...
This mattress is excellent quality and a good value.
It feels medium-firm to firm when used on slats (IKEA $30 birch slats) - firm enough to support one's spine, but not overly firm for back and stomach sleepers or for some side-sleepers (for side-sleepers used to a memory foam mattress or who have wide shoulders, we found that it's a bit too firm under the shoulders, but comfortable otherwise - definitely more than a coil spring mattress).
For most of us who've slept on it, it's comfortable, but for the side-sleepers, it's just too firm for the shoulders (waking up from pain, turning into chronic pain w/ trigger points after a week); however, we knew from the reviews when we bought it that it was going to be on the firmer side, which works fine for most, but not all, of us. Overall, we like this mattress and consider it to be a good value.
The company has great customer service and we like that they make their mattresses in the USA. It would be really nice if they offered the option of a mattress with a softer zone at the ends (where the shoulders are), for those who cannot tolerate firmer mattresses, since this mattress is excellent quality. We'd give it 4.5 stars if we could, and are only not giving it 5 stars because it is too firm for side-sleepers, despite what the website states about it being suitable for all sleeping styles.
This 10in King mattress is lovely and well-priced. When we unpacked it we didn't really notice a harsh chemical smell. After two nights of letting it inflate and air out, we had the best night's sleep. I like beds firm while my husband likes them on the softer side. Oddly enough, I find it to be quite firm and he thinks it's nice and soft! They seem to have figured out the right sweet spot. Very happy with our purchase and have recommended widely.
Do you like sleeping like a baby and not waking up the next morning feeling like you just spent 8 hours in the ring with Mike Tyson? If the answer is yes then this mattress is for you.
I'm 6'4" (190lbs) and my wife is 5'7" (115lbs), we were looking for a bed to fit our needs and weight absorption/distribution was a concern. Our previous mattress was too hard, we purchased a 3" memory foam to soften the load, both had us feeling like we were getting beat up each night. My wife use to talk about her neck and my hips and lower back hurt so bad - we honestly thought it wasn't related to our mattress.
It wasn't until the 2-3 day of using the TN until we talked about it, we both realized we had not said one thing about our hips or neck. Since then we've been waking up feeling like we've gotten an extra hour or two of sleep and without any pain.
If you've got hip or lower back pain, this mattress might be just what you need. If you're on the fence, don't be, get it done. You'll thank yourself later.
I did a ton of research on mattresses before splurging.
Here is the deal. If you want the best mattress in the world, you will go buy a Sealy Posturepedic mattress. You will also spend upwards of $2,000. I wanted a high quality mattress, but I did not want to spend $2,000. Consumer Reports led me to Tuft and Needle.
Consumer Reports ranks three different brands as "best buys" when it comes to mattresses. The Sealy brand is one, and the brand that Costco sells is another. The third is Tuft and Needle. Perhaps the mattresses that Sealy and Costco sell are better, but I think that the Tuft and Needle mattress is the best value.
Yes, it is a firm mattress, but it isn't like sleeping on a hardwood floor. In fact, I found little in the way of pressure points while lying down on this mattress. I tend to be a stomach sleeper. I know, that's horrible for my back, but I've had sinus issues my whole life, and sleeping on my back or side causes horrible pressure to build up overnight. I usually fall asleep on my side and then find myself on my stomach when I wake up in the morning. The first night was a little weird, but the insert that came with the mattress advised to give it at least a few days for the mattress to completely air out. After a couple of nights, I had adjusted, and I can say with certainty that I like the mattress.
The interesting part is that it didn't seem, at first, like it was all that great. Yesterday, though, I tried to take a nap on my old bed because I was washing the bedding for this one. It wasn't the same. It's kind of like internet speeds or HD television. It doesn't seem all that great when you first use it, but you definitely notice it when you try to go back.
I give this mattress five out of five stars.
I decided to write my review some months after buying the product. At first, it was ok. Firm and comfortable. But now, 7 months later, the mattress is a real mess. It seems like it got deformed in the edges, it's very soft (I like firm mattresses and by the reviews of this one that should be the case) and I wake up almost every morning with a pain in my back.
If you like soft mattresses, that shouldn't bother you. But if you are like me, who likes a harder feeling one, stay away from this one.
Will never go back to a futon or spring mattress again knowing foam mattresses can be this comfy. It's so supportive but yet still soft when you sit on it. While laying down, it doesn't feel like I'm sinking in at all and I'm 220 lbs!! I'm a side sleeper and only have back issues if I've been extra busy at work, so it's no fault of the mattress. It's holding up remarkably well too. I sit on the edge while playing Xbox1 but there is not an area there that feels worn out or softer than the rest of the mattress. Also I don't feel the cats jumping on and off the bed in the night anymore. Woohoo! highly recommended like so many other ppl have too.
Some people hate memory foam mattresses, other love it. If you absolutely hate memory foam, there is very little chance you'll like this mattress. It's not quite memory foam, but it's very similar.
My main point of comparison is a $2,000 (over 3x the cost) Tempurpedic mattress I owned. I was happy with that mattress, but lost it in a fire. Researching mattresses I came across Tuft and Needle, contacted their costumer support (incredibly responsive by the way) and decided that given their return policy (take it to charity within 30 days, show them receipt, and you get your money back) I gave them a try.
I am so glad I did.
I had 2 minor gripes with the tempurpedic:
1. It gets very hot between you and the mattress
2. You kind of sink in - no bounce, kind of hard to move about.
I loved the comfort, support, etc. Well, except the price tag, everything is well made.
This tuft and needle just one upped it. NOTE: I bought this right after they started shipping mattresses with their custom top layer of foam. The mattresses went up in price by like 20-25%, but supposedly this is a really good foam. I cannot compare how the mattress was before, just the new version of it. (2015)
- Does not get hot! You don't sleep hot like with a tempurpedic.
- Feels great. Most comfortable mattress I've ever slept in. They did a great job with it.
- You don't sink in quite as much, it pushes back a little. "localized bounce" is their marketing term, but basically, you don't totally sink in.
- All materials and constructions from the USA.
- None so far.
So far I love this mattress. I hope it lasts, but I got nothing bad to say about it. It is very comfortable, their support is amazing, return policy great. Honestly, seems like a great company and they are producing a quality product are a good price.
Highly recommended if you are considering any memory foam mattress.
Happened upon Tuft & Needle quite by accident and read all the reviews. The only complaint some people had was that they really wanted a soft mattress and this T&N was too firm for them. So I thought it was exactly what I needed. Firm support, soft top and not sweaty. I live in Hawaii and it really is important to have a mattress that breathes otherwise you feel like you are in a sauna. It arrived promptly, I unwrapped it per directions and voila, instant mattress. I thought my back was getting worse because of my age, and guess what? It was because of lack of support while sleeping. I sleep well and my back does not hurt now. A VERY worthwhile investment for me. Needless to say, I am more than pleased.
I waited to do this review because when I was researching mattresses, I wanted to know how they held up. After owning this mattress for over a year, I can honestly say that this is the best mattress, hands down, that we've ever owned. We traveled recently and kept telling each other that we only had a few days left before we would be back to our own mattress. Falling into bed after we got home was an exquisite relief. We've owned innerspring, memory foam, and sleep number beds, and they don't hold a candle to the comfort offered by the Tuft and Needle.
Every part of the mattress supports you so that there are no pressure points, just like the memory foam, but it doesn't hold your shape, so if you roll over in the night, you don't roll over into a hole--it springs back immediately to cushion you again. It holds a small amount of heat, but my husband, who is sensitive to temperature when he sleeps, doesn't have any problem. For me, it's enough to ensure comfort. After over a year of ownership, there are no sagging spots or indentations, and no loss of firmness. The mattress is just exactly firm enough for us because there's support without pain. My husband needs a very firm bed for his back, and I prefer a softer bed. Memory foam was too soft for him, innerspring was too hard for me, and the sleep number was just a miserable experience for us both (yes, it's sort of like the Three Little Bears around here!). The Tuft & Needle has what it takes to meet both our needs, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Mattress was hard as a rock. My wife and I gave it two full weeks to try to get acclimated to it and for it to 'break in'. After 2 weeks, we were tired of losing sleep and ultimately went back to the mattress we were trying to replace. Also beware of return policy - You don't get the 100 day return time frame when purchased through Amazon. Now we are stuck with this mattress we can't use or we have to figure out how to ship it back to Amazon.. :(
There are a few things that you should always buy in person to check for quality.
Fresh fruit. Diamond rings. Cars.
Up until a few months ago, I would have added mattresses to that list. Wasn't that one of the morals of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"? Most of us were taught that the moral was that a life of crime doesn't pay and you really shouldn't be sneaking into other people's houses - especially if they are bears - but another, often overlooked moral was "not every mattress will feel JUST RIGHT. Try before you buy."
When I saw T&N's claim of a mattress with optimal comfort, I was skeptical. What worked for Mama Bear and Papa Bear wasn't what worked for Baby Bear.
But T&N's business model intrigued me as did their pricing structure. And if their mattress didn't work out, I would return it and they would donate it to charity. Win-win.
I'm happy to report that Goldilocks was wrong. There are some mattresses that are JUST RIGHT for everyone. This is one of them. My husband and I both sleep well on our King mattress from T&N. The quality is fantastic. The business model is sublime. And my bank account is happy that I didn't spend a small fortune on a bed.
So I guess you could say we're living happily ever after.
Unlike Goldilocks. Who really shouldn't have broken into the bears house.
Unless you enjoy sleeping on a stack of bricks or plywood, because that's about as soft as this mattress is, then you'll hate this mattress as much as we did. I got better sleep on the mattress in our camper than I did on this thing. We bought this because it had thousands of reviews and nearly a 5 star rating. However, it is the firmest mattress ever. The off-gassing from the foam was horrific. I had to lay a blanket down on top of the sheets to add another barrier so I couldn't smell the chemicals from the foam. Even spraying with Febreze and letting it air out did not help. It took about a week for the smell to dissipate.
Thankfully there is a 30 day sleep trial with this mattress and a full money back guarantee. We called Amazon to return this mistake and was issued our full refund within a few hours. You can't return the mattress but you will get your refund. We were told by Amazon (via telephone and email) that you can keep the mattress, donate, or sell it. At least Amazon was very helpful and had great customer service with this purchase.
This is my second Tuft and Needle mattress--the first one I had slept on is on the third floor of an old house in Baltimore, actually on an old wood floor. This is a fantastic night's sleep!
If you have tendinitis, this doesn't hurt pressure points. It's very, very comfortable if you are a back sleeper.
One warning: once you open the second cover, the mattress will inflate like a balloon in a matter of seconds. Don't open that last cover until you've put the bed where you want it. Recommended.
Edit: After a few days, I feel better than I have in years. (I was sleeping on a fifteen-year-old Sealy futon.) Seriously, this will make back pain and tendinitis from sleeping on an old mattress better in days. This is a cure for soft tissue pain caused by an old or too hard bed. It's amazing.
First of all, the price is legit-ski. I'm talkin' divine quality mattress, at a human price point. Look, I tried other mattresses, even my baby boo's Tempur-pedic and it doesn't compare. I'm also in love with your transparent pricing, so much so, I want to marry it. I can't even! When it comes to obscene mark-ups, due to lack of market competition. Tuft & Neddle is a serious strike toward fair market pricing. It's the American dream you can sleep on! Could this get any better? Yes! I'm not even done. My mattress aka "Love Cloud", was shipped straight to my face, within days. Easy to transport and hecka-easy to setup. I sleep better than I ever have, in the sum total of my foolish life! In conclusion: great sleep at a fair price, + customer consideration and service that's off the chizzy = me telling everyone I know about Tuft & Needle AND showing them pictures. I wish you sold t-shirts and had an instagram account, so I could rep you hardcore and follow your every move! 10 outa’ 10~!
I'm debating returning this bed. It's pretty firm, and seems comfy when I'm sleeping on my stomach but i sleep on my side too. Its way to firm for when i switch to sleeping on my side. The shoulder i sleep on gets very sore, to the point it hurts to raise my arm. Not what i expected when i spent this much on a bed that claims to stand up to the larger names in their industry.
