Figuring out the takeaways from customers can be a great eye-opener for shoppers. Customers, sadly, don't always have positive remarks about these mattresses. Some are very satisfied with the feel, but others report discomfort. If you are thinking about buying, make sure to get more details about the mattress below.
Overall, these mattresses may leave something to be desired in terms of lasting support. Though there are some who like the response of these mattresses, others have found these mattresses not to be comfortable. If this brand is on your list, do additional research to ensure it works for your body.
Edge support is definitely an important indicator to those with mobility concerns. Others don't find it is to be a big concern. Customers have mixed reviews about the supportiveness of these mattresses so make sure to do added reading if it is important for you.
Durability is one of the most important attributes to finding a mattress. We all want it to be just as comfortable at the beginning as it is a decade later. Sadly, not all sleepers agree that these mattresses are durable, and some have had issues with longevity after a short time. If you are considering using as your full time mattress, read the reviews to make sure it will work with your body before buying.
Some are very happy with these mattresses., but others have described not feeling as satisfied. Although there were good ratings overall, there were also some poor ones. Learn more below on the specifics.
Most customers describe these mattresses as having above average supportiveness, which is refreshing for those that need a mattress to align the spine. That said, some folks have had issues with the firmness and support levels overall, so make sure to figure out if the firmness and overall specifications are for you.
Edge support is the measure of how well the mattress supports weight on the sides. These mattresses have good resistance, but some folks may experience some contouring along the sides.
Mattresses with good durability last between 7 and 12 years based on the materials. Foam mattresses are not as durable, but mattresses with high quality coils tend to last longer. However, mattresses that don't put a focus on durability will degrade much quicker no matter the materials. These mattresses get mixed emotions from sleepers. Some feel they've found lasting good sleep, while others have problems.
I bought my first Shifman Mattress in Bloomdales in 2001. It lasted me over ten years and was only tossed out due to the impossibility of getting such a heavy, well-made mattress down my third floor tenement stairs. I switched brands to my regret and have never gotten the good night's sleep I had with my Shifman. I can't even turn the mattress over because it is a one-sided mattress, something I was unaware of. When this one bites the dust, I'm returning to Shifman. It is a costly product and worth every cent.View More Reviews
I am extremely disappointed with the performance of our Shifman mattress but even more disappointed with their customer service. We purchased a king pillow top mattress 20 months ago. Within a few months, large depressions began to form on each side of the bed. I called the store and was told to turn it more frequently than the once per month recommended by the manufacturer. I followed instructions and the depressions worsened. It felt as if we were sleeping in a trough with hills on either side! I contacted Shifman and received no response. I then contacted the store where we purchased the bed. They sent out a representative as well as the Shifman rep. The Shifman rep told us this was normal and we should turn the bed 90 degrees and sleep on the short axis for a month or so until the middle of the bed compresses. He never touched the bed or took any measurements to judge the depth of the depressions. Bottom line.....they will do nothing to correct the situation. Shifman has a 10 year non-prorated warranty but, clearly, they don't stand by their product. My only hope, at this point, is that the furniture store has a higher ethical standard and will make this right. Lesson learned- price is not a predictor of quality.
$4,500 for a queen size mattress and foundation and a back ache every morning! When I called their customer service, the response was (1) it was my fault because the mattress had not gotten used to me yet (after five months?) and (2) what do you want us to do about it? Then, she hung up. A second call was even worse. Someone who said she was Eileen screamed when I protested about the first call and said 'I can put you on hold' before hanging up. The crudest, rudest people I have ever encountered in business. Needless to say, their creation is out of my house, and none will ever return.
A good nights sleep is of utmost importance! I've bought Shifman mattresses in the past and although they are bit pricey, they are top quality, comfortable and well worth the cost...you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Shifman Mattresses!!!!
We have been had 5 different beds in 16 years. This is the first bed that is so comfortable and supportive that we are getting the best sleep we ever had.
I'm awake bc a "fell in a slope" in my 4 month mattress. Stickley stands by there low quality product. Maybe Shifman Mattresses does too....
Wow Shifman Mattresses Your refusal to uphold the warranty of your product is quite disappointing. For a product that is so expensive and allegedly so high quality I would expect more from the manufacturer!
Had my first night's sleep on my new Shifman.. It was incredible! Thanks to the amazing artisans!
I was tired of low quality mattresses and wanted a mattress that could be turned. Research led me to Shifman. The problem is it is too heavy to turnover. Even when my son helps me it is too heavy. Whats the point of having a two sided mattress if its not realistic to turn it. Big grooves develope even when you rotate it. I gave 3 stars because its made relatively well but for the money spent I'll just get a regular new mattress every 5 years.
The bed was adjustable to fit in my bedroom and it was comfortable enough to lay down and get a nice rest. I did not have trouble with the assembly. The warranty had 1 year. But after 1 year you have to pay for it. If it gets damage you could exchange it or get a refund. I think it won't get damage since it was in good shape. The staff that work there were not nice. They were arrogant and did not greet or smile at customers at all. Employees now in days are all arrogant and mean. The value was great. There was no damage to the bed. It is well worth what it cost. The assembly was a little bit hard but I did with help of others.View More Reviews
We like a firm mattress. Our queen size Springwall Lunar Natural HP Euro Posture foam mattress felt good when we bought it. After 2 months we noticed sagging on both sides. By 4 months we began having back aches and stopped using it. We notified the store and manufacturer. They sent a rep who measured the mattress sag without any weight on it. According to their standards it was acceptable. What a joke.
We are not impressed with the Kendra spring wall mattress purchase or the commitment of this company to provide a comfortable well built product. We purchased our mattress in 2012 and after a year noticed a dip on either side where we lay. After about 2 years the dips increased. It is now about 1.5-2 inches deep. We are both healthy weight adults. We turn our mattress regularly but still cannot fix the issues. We recently flipped it on its back and are now sleeping on a new memory foam mattress on top of the bottom of the mattress. Not a great solution but the mattress is very uncomfortable. We recently learned that Springwall has a warranty for the mattress so we contacted them to inquire about what to do. Following a submission of photos of the indents and measurement after flipping the mattress right side up, we were provided with the following information: 'Image 2597 shows an impression on your mattress of approx 1.5 inches and unfortunately this still falls under normal wear and tear and is not considered defective . In order for it to be deemed defective the impression has to be greater than 2 inches. If in future the impression becomes greater than 2 inches please resubmit.'' We now must purchase a new mattress or sleep on a very uncomfortable Springwall. This is very unfortunate. Please do your research prior to purchasing from Springwall.
We also had this queensize mattress less than a year when we started getting sore hips. Wrote the manufacturer in Toronto. They sent a representative down to look at the mattress and we haven't heard from them since. Sent another letter - no reply. Can only sleep a couple of hours without waking up in pain. There also seems to be a lump in the middle that feels firm compared to the sides.

Similar to another reviewer, I tried this bed in the store at the brick, and my boyfriend and I both loved it. BUT after a month at home, it started to dip and sag and when you laid on it parts would give way and be softer than others. We have turned it every week, added support underneath, and now a year later I sleep in the middle diagonally because it's the only long strip in the mattress with uniformity in support. I am saving up to throw this one out and replace it, because unfortunately we spent over $1500 what has become my worst purchase EVER.
I have had continuous back problems since buying this mattress. I wouldn't wish a night's sleep on this mattress for my worst enemy!
Purchased twin size for our son from Sears 11 years ago. one year past the ten year warranty and bed looks and feels like new. more comfortable than the other beds in the house. son says he's not moving out of the house without this bed. occassionally used for overnight guests. lots of comments from them about what a great night's sleep they had and where did I find that fantastic bed. maybe we just got lucky but we love it. would highly recommend this bed. paid 400 for the twin but that was over ten years ago and it was a half price sale at Sears. great investment.
bed bought was the chiropractic approved Imperial queen. Moderately expensive and initially felt quite comfortable. After one month though bed was giving me continuous back pains, and after six years, carefully rotating and flipping as instructed in the book, even my wife says the bed is terrible.
I usually sleep on a piece of foam that is almost 20 years old and get a better rest than this bed. Also another much cheaper bed bought at the same time is still quite comfortable and in excellent condition. Therefore i would suggest it is unwise to buy a bed from this company, and not to trust the recommendations of the chiropractic associations, although i am a frequent user of (good) chiropracters.
Have amazing features that all adjustable beds must have. It has ultimate comfort and can customizable to your likings. The bed is made professional and can comfort back pain. The bed can make your sleep schedule better. The warranty of the adjustable bed is outstanding. This can cover for 20 years which is an outstanding deal. If you are not satisfied with the bed you can 100% full refund back after 101 days. Customer service is as well great but the downside is customer service is through the weekdays. They as well have a customer service email. The service is as well the same as some brands. The deal of the bed is really great and has some very great features added on to the bed. It has many custom features that is really outstanding for the value of the adjustable bed.
I like the overall features as it covers with a basic sheet, but can also customize it by replacing it or hitting a switch. This allows me to adjust the mattress accordingly and is pretty nice to have. The warranty covers everything there is from the mattress to the build structure you make. It also gives you a good amount of options and room to work around the warranty to customize your purchase. The customer service was pretty good as it gives me access to everything I need. The value is pretty good as well since there was no problems at all and there was more than enough value for the purchase.
You can move the side from the head and the legs up and down to make this as comfortable as possible for you at night. The mattress is from really good quality. The warranty is for 2 years and I got it for an additional price that was reasonable for this kind of bed. Completely describes the quality of this kind of bed, the warranty. The customer service was very helpful in every single question I had. They took their time with me and I felt good as a customer. Would highly recommend the customer service. The value of this kind of bed was very reasonable, a good price for best quality. The bed itself was expensive but last me for a very long time.
Love this bed! With an 850 pound capacity, it is very sturdy and well made. Massage feature is basically just vibrator motors, kind of like the 'magic fingers' beds that used to be in motels. It's nice if you're someone who needs to be 'patted' to sleep, like a baby. Shuts off automatically after about 20 minutes. The adjustable motor is very quiet. Head and foot are completely adjustable so you can make it as comfortable as you need. I have a 10-inch Lucid memory foam mattress, which is very firm, that I bought on Amazon 3 years ago for under $300. Same price today, and it works really well with this adjustable base.
Warnings: It comes flat in a huge box. When the bed arrived, there was a fist size hole in the box and there were only two straps and some tape holding it together. At first I was concerned because there was no styrofoam or packing material to absorb bumps during shipment. But once we laid the bed down I realized that it really didn't need extra packing material. The bed is HEAVY. You definitely need two strong people for this project.
Assembly: The manual doesn't tell you in the beginning that you need to insert 9-volt back-up batteries into the motor box. Those instructions are on the last page - AFTER you've flipped the base over and then have to crawl around on the floor to reach the box. But assembly is simple. Attach the legs, cut away a few strips of zip tie that hold the power cord, insert the 9-volt batteries, and then the bed is ready to flip right side up. Here's where it gets tricky. You need two people to dead lift the unwieldy, 125 pound base and flip it over. You cannot 'lean' it over on its side, because the pressure on the legs could bend or snap the metal bolts. It was a challenge for my daughter and me but we managed. Anyway, once it's right-side up you just need to attach the corner brackets that hold the mattress on. I don't think they tell you that the bed also comes with the headboard attachment kit, which was a nice surprise.
Have slept blissfully for a 3 nights. I bought it because I have moderate sleep apnea and sometimes woke up with headaches. The wedge type pillows weren't much help because I would slide off during the night. With this adjustable bed, I am able to lift the head up so that my sleep is uninterrupted and I wake up feeling like I actually got a good night's rest - either on my back or on my side. No more headaches. I love being able to elevate my legs while I watch TV or read - it really helps with edema. I used an income tax return to purchase this bed. Best thing I've done for myself in years!
I suffer from sleep apnea, snoring and lower back pain. Tried every type of standard flat mattress and nothing helped. Paired the Reverie 5D with Perfect Coud Atlas mattresses, put bed in anti-gravity mode and now sleep great with no pain, snoring or breathing issues. A real life changer. I've been recommending this bed to everyone.
This is just a review about the seller and delivery/setup - as well as initial impressions after a few hours. Will update after some more time.
We purchased a king - which is two twin bases. Delivery was great, as it comes in (2) 140# boxes which meant it wasn't impossible for two people to carry up stairs and do the set-up. The instructional videos on Reverie's site are spot-on and helped us a lot.
Set-up was exactly as shown on the video. The _only_ thing I would caution folks on is that if you are buying it as a king and intend to use it as one bed, not controlled as a split - both remotes can be paired to both sides of the bed, just follow the instructions (easier to do before you set the bed in it's place as it's heavy to lift up!).
We paired this with our existing Casper mattress and it fits perfectly and works very well in every configuration we've tried so far. We also had an existing head-board/rails/foot-board setup that we were really hoping would be compatible with this frame - and it was. We took out the existing boxsprings and slats and the adjustable frames fell right into place. We aren't attaching to the headboard as it doesn't seem to need it.
In our set-up, the wall-hugger feature seems to work well enough - both nightstands remain accessible with the head position pretty high.
Positions - I can't wait to really play with this. Our initial reaction to the zero-gravity and raised foot positions was ... 'Ahhhh'. The movement is relatively quiet, smooth, and we found the massage feature really was a pleasant surprise (in that it actually works well)!
The seller (Low price bargains) was terrific - they were responsive to my ?s and it was delivered exactly on the date promised. What more can you ask!
I'll update this in a few weeks after we've really broken it in, but really happy at the initial set-up, quality, sturdiness, and operation of this bed. And ECSTATIC at how much we saved!
Springwall mattresses suck! I bought one last year and had to return it for warranty. Now I've had this one for 3 months (I got a more expensive mattress thinking it was better) and it the same. Bad bad bad quality. Will upload pics if needed. Lol save ur money and buy serta.
Not satisfied at all with the product. After only one year, the matress is not comfortable. Body impressions are big. My Gf and i have a hill between us when we try to sleep in this mountain matress...Every morning we wake up with fatigue in are back!
Well I will first start by saying I have emailed this company directly twice with no response at all, so that being said I will try and be public in trying to get help with the product I bought that is failing and is still under warranty!!! Queen size bought Aug 2014 and feels like a 20yr old bed. No support left in it, two very sagging spots, side walls are caving in and I want some dame customer service! I have read so many bad reviews regarding Springwall and lack of stand...ing behind their product as the website states, so PLEASE Springwall get behind your product and honor your warranty. I have purchased other sets of Springwall and didn't have an issue, so prior to this would've recommended it. However no response to direct email, not even a suggestion as to what or who I should talk to, nothing! SO hope I have Springwalls attention here on FB and get some kind of assistance!!! Thank you for your quick and professional attention to your customer!
I would like to thank Springwall customer service for there excellent and fast service. They sent me a warranty card and i read it and found the sagging in the bed is normal for this type of bed. I flipped the bed and the memory foam bounced back up to the way it suppose too. Beds have come a long way over the years and my lack of knowledge how memory foam works. Thank again for the excellent service and listening to my concerns.
in December we ordered a Chiropractic Resort - Renew Queen size mattress for our platform bed . . . . we were a bit concerned that w/o the box spring it wouldn't be comfortable . . . not a worry this mattress is WONDERFUL . . . waking up in the morning feeling much better, this is a great mattress . . . we purchased it from Sears and we live in Lester Beach, Manitoba, cannot say enough good about this mattress, if we ever need a future mattress we will be repeat customers, hands down, Springwall you make fabulous products, kudos to your company
We recently spent a night on your Ambience mattress at a hotel in Moncton, NB. It was amazing! We are very interested in purchasing this mattress. However, we live in the US and can't seem to find any retailers that carry your brand. Is this truly the case or are there some stores in the US that we could purchase one from?
My husband and I purchased a Springwall in 2008 and its the best matress set we have had to date, we love it! Guests who have slept on our Springwall have fallen in love with it and want one!
We purchased aSpringwall LimitedEdition Queen set from the Brick store in Whitby,Ontario , in January 28,2011,I notified your company in March that the mattress lost its shape in the centre of the mattress, Iwas advised to notify the store,but I had misplaced my invoice I couldn'y, I recently located my invoice can this situation still be corrected as this mattress is very uncomfortable and we are seniors.please advise,asap
