Looking for a featherbed--This is the one!! I was leary when I received it and opened it up because of past experiences with purchasing other featherbeds. Not this one--they are not kidding when they say 5-inches thick it really is!! And to receive a cover sheet for that price-unbelievable. Lay it out on your bed and slide your cover sheet on--it begins to instantly fluff up and rise. I pushed the sides in and the top and bottom in and up until it is piled up like a pyramid on my bed, I let it sit that way to air out and fluff up. It really works--I do this every other week to really fluff it up-- and believe me it responds. I have to tell you that it is truly like sleeping on a cloud!! I had a friend who was store buying featherbeds for twice the cost and returning them because he was so dissatisfied. I told him to purchase this one and he loves it. He said,"Finally a featherbed that is all that it says it is...I cannot believe how comfortable this is." It is well worth the price..... and one comparable in quality would easily go for twice the price. If you have had similiar experiences with trying to find a good featherbed--Seriously!!---Look No More--This Is The One!!
Alright, so. Let me just start off saying that i found most other reviews lacking much information and i wanted to leave one with a bit more substance to it to hopefully help at least one person make a well informed purchase regardless of other reviews. So. I was browsing the web for mattress toppers at reasonable prices, because i'm on a budget. i came across this. After much comparing, i came up with a verdict. most, if not almost ALL Higher end feather-beds, especially with down content (this one has none) are usually HALF as thick as this one, but cost TWICE the price. Down is for warmth and a little extra softness, feathers provide softness and more support than down. I get really hot easily when i sleep so i was avoiding down, but looking for plush softness, So, that's what prompted me to make the purchase. I did however start browsing the comments and reviews a day after i made the order, and came across the negative reviews..i did worry a little, but once it arrived, l was more than certainly satisfied. some reviews said it was "too flat" or "crunchy"..I would just like to let everyone know the "crunch" associated with this particular feather-bed, is from the cover. It is because it is extra tightly woven cotton, (to prevent the feathers from poking through) As for those people who stated "it isn't 5 inches" or "Feel like it was misrepresented" in terms of thickness or flatness...Feather beds, regardless if they're all down, or all feather, or blended WILL be comfortable and WILL flatten down, EVERY, NIGHT. The secret is it MUST, MUST, MUST!! I REPEAT MUST!!!! a MILLION times MUST!!!!!!! BE FLUFFED EVERY DAY FOR THE "CLOUD" or "SINK IN" FEELING AND TO REACH MAXIMUM LOFT (height) I REPEAT ...DAILY!!! and i cannot stress that enough. Fluffing every day = Thick, Puffy Soft, cloud 5+ inches high. Not fluffing = flat, still comfy not 5 inches high This feather bed is 5 inches + when fluffed. When i fluff it, which i do very thoroughly, EVERY DAY, is EASILY 5 + inches, never any less. i repeat, NEVER less than 5 inches, when fluffed. Thats the way feather-beds have been since the 14th century, and its STILL that way today. There is simply NO way around it unless you have someone else do it for you. so if you're lazy, you probably wont enjoy any feathered, ever. Sorry. I might also add this was my first mattress topper / feather-bed purchase ever, and i am very very please in terms of comfort to price ratio. I am sleeping comfortably every night thus far (its been a month since i received it) and have not had a problem with feathers poking/ coming out or anything of the sort. Cover is very high quality, as well as the baffled part itself. Amazing for the price, and considering buying a second one to put on top of this one. Just because im a glutton for comfort.
After returning from a trip to Chicago where I slept on a luxurious featherbed at the posh W hotel, I went on a mission to find a comparable bed. Sleeping at the W was the best sleep I'd had in ages... like sleeping on a cloud as they say! My hunt ended when I found this wonderful featherbed from Overstock.com. I was skeptical at first... could it really be as great as the reviews and at such an affordable price? YES YES YES!!! My featherbed arrived amazingly fast and the quality is unbelievable. The bed is thick, heavy, luxurious and very well made. To be honest, I didn't expect much from the included cover and was prepared to purchase a separate cover. To my delight, I was wrong. The cover is wonderful as well! I'd buy another for my guest room but I'm sure my guests would never leave!!! <g> This is my second purchase from Overstock and I can't begin to sing their praises loud enough. Great customer service and super fast shipping add to the incredible bargains.
It was delivered yesterday (Friday). No bad smell at all. It had to be shaken and aired out so that it can "breathe" to allow it get fluffy. We call it the PUFFY bed. This featherbed is HEAVY - the fill is very high. Its comfortable and soft - while it gives support. You will have to shake it every day or so to make sure it remains "puffy" - as you would with any other featherbed. The included duvet cover is very smooth (high thread count) - fits like a glove and does not allow for the feathers come through. The height of ours is as stated 5". Its stitched in sections to prevent the feathers from shifting to one side of the featherbed. We purchased the King size and its covers our mattress perfectly. We are very pleased with this product. It was purchased to replace the (more expensive) 3" featherbed we've had for over three years and was not as high and highly filled as this one. Highly recommend a featherbed to all my friends, its the ultimate luxurious item for your bedroom. This one will be on the top of the list of recommendations! Our first night sleeping on it, well ...let me just say we did not get out of bed until noon!! A great purchase at an incredible price. Super fast shipping. Overstock.com does it again!
I received my feather bed one day while my husband was out-of-town. When he came home and laid down for a good night's rest, he raised the sheets and said, "What is this?!?!?" I said, "It's our new featherbed!" He said, "I'm telling you right now, I'm not going to like it". I asked him to sleep on it just one night and if he didn't like it, I would take it off." Much to his dismay, he loved it! He said, "That was the best nights sleep he had in a long time." We have had it for about a month now and can't wait to climb into bed every night. We loved it so much that we bought another one for our guest bedroom. Try it - you'll love it!!!!!
I bought the Queen-Size Super Snooze 5-inch 230 Thread Count Baffled Featherbed Set to make my too-firm memory foam mattress more comfortable. I previously had an inner spring mattress with a Calvin Klein fiberbed (cannot seem to find them for sale anymore) which was very comfortable but when I "upgraded" to the memory foam it just felt too stiff. I couldn't find a comparable fiberbed and my old fiberbed was a bit worn out and not re-fluffing after 5 years of use (dry cleaner wanted nearly same price to clean as purchasing a new one!) I looked everywhere online in stores and this featherbed had the best reviews at a decent price - even if you only get a few years use out of it, it's a pretty good deal. The Super Snooze featherbed arrived vacuum-packed in a large box but immediately puffed up to about 5 inches Fit-wise, the featherbed is about two inches shorter than the queen mattress but is not problematic and the width fit correctly. Feathers were well distributed and zippered cover is decent quality and easier to put on than I expected. It does squish down when you lay on it but puffs back up some when you roll over and with some fluffing in the morning. The feathers have not shifted between the baffles. Because it is so thick, there is no way my fitted sheets would fit over it plus the 12" mattress, so I put it in the included case, then put my mattress pad on top of it, then the fitted sheet and just lay it on top of the mattress. The sheets/mattress pad are staying on fine and don't come loose in the middle of the night with 2 people (plus small dog and fat cat). This configuration makes it easier to fluff when making the bed. I think that it would feel even better on a regular spring mattress but does help soften the memory foam some - i.e., doesn't really have the "cloud" effect, but that's more due to the mattress than the featherbed and I honestly doubt there's a product out there that would do that short of a mattress topper made of about 6 inches of jell-o! There was a light odor but a spritz of Febreeze cleared it up. I also usually get itchy from feather/down bedding and furnishings but have not found that to be a problem with this featherbed. The feathers are a bit on the crunchy side but wasn't expecting a high down content product anyhow. Does not seem to be get too hot but haven't had warm night temps yet since owning it. I have found myself oversleeping more than usual since I got is so I guess that says something :-) lol Note: I did need help to carry it as it was a fairly large/heavy box and I'm 5'4" so my arms were to short to carry it more than a few feet. Since I got it delivered to work to avoid having left outside my home during the middle of the day, it had to fit it in the trunk of my compact SUV to transport it. Might be a tight squeeze getting it into a smaller or non-hatchback car. "Free" shipping (UPS Ground) took about 6 business days to get to LA - was shipped from Davenport, IA. Would recommend as a great value for the quality received!
I ordered this bed late Sunday night and was shocked when it arrived Wednesday morning. Super fast shipment. And I only paid the normal shipping ($1 last weekend)...they sent it Fed Ex over night. Cool. I didn't open the box until probably mid afternoon and laid it out on my bed to fluff. I'd read where it needs to sit for like 24 hours for maximum "fluffability", but I couldn't wait that long. So, while it did fluff a LOT in those ten or so hours, it probably didn't get to its full five inches. But still, I fell into the bed last night and honestly thought it was heaven. Sunk down into those feathers and just laid there with a big smile wondering where this thing'd been all my life. Funny thing is, I'm usually a huge tosser and turner. Can never get comfortable (I have scoliosis, and shoulder and knee problems. Middle aged bliss)...but last night I landed on the bed on my back and it felt so darn good, I couldn't MAKE myself roll over. I WANTED to roll over...but I was so content I just stayed there on my back. I woke up eight hours later STILL on my back. My comforter hadn't moved. I hadn't moved all night. A first for me. This is a great product. I don't expect my experience to change, but if it does, I'll write another review. Also note this is a major name brand. I guess they can't tell you that...and I don't think we're allowed to say in reviews....but trust me, this company is the primo producer of things "down" in the world. (The name isn't on the product....look for the piece of paper at the bottom of the box). Its very, ummm, "P.C.":) And just one more thing. The king size topper fit my king size bed perfectly. I have a normal king size bed....and was concerned from some of the reviews I'd read. But, no problem. I suggest putting a fitted sheet over the topper and the mattress. Mine fit perfectly, no problems. It just adds an extra layer of softness between you and the feathers. (not that they poke out, but it made it softer). So, everything is good. Life is good. I'm ready to go back to bed now....
I read many of the reviews before purchasing this item and the majority of people seemed to really like this mattress topper. Other than having to fluff this topper up once every day or two, it's a great deal! I've come across alot of toppers that are more expensive and less comfortable than this so this was a good find for me. I've had it for about three weeks and I've already washed the mattress cover once, drying it with low heat and it came out clean and didn't shrink at all. I am very pleased with this featherbed.
Featherbed came with it's own zippered cover, a nice feature that adds to feather-poking resistance. No odor, right from the box! Fluffed it up for a day, then onto the bed. I have been sleeping better, with fewer morning aches & pains now that I have this feather bed and a down comforter. One caution: this featherbed is thick. If your comforter barely covers your mattress now, adding the featherbed may make your existing comforter seem too short and allows your mattress to show. Just something to think about, if you have an oversized mattress. It does need to be fluffed a little each day, or else your body depression shows--but thats OK. What I found easiest: don't put it under your fitted sheet. Instead, cover it with it's own fitted sheet and place on top of your covered mattress. This way it is easily able to be fluffed when needed!
Someone posted that they stayed at a high end hotel in Chicago and slept on a featherbed... well, so did I and I immediately got home and ordered one. I've had mine for about 2 weeks now and I absolutely love it. It's like sleeping on a cloud! No more shoulder pains when I sleep on my side either. Only drawback is... I keep oversleeping!
Until I purchased this combination of featherbed and zippered cover, my husband and I were buying a new featherbed about every other year. Not only do we live in the pollen and dust mite capital of the world, we also rescue cats. These factors were causing our featherbeds to become a huge reservoir of allergens. The high thread count, zippered cover not only blocks the infiltration of allergens, it also allows for easy removal of surface allergens. I am ordering another cover in order to change them out with my weekly linen change. My husband and I have been sleeping on featherbeds for over 15 years; this bed is the most comfortable one we have ever sunk into. In addition, I love shopping from Overstocks! Basic delivery is fast, customer service is fantastic and every thing I have ever purchased has been high value for the money.
I bought this king feather bed because my new Tempurpedic was a bit too hard for my taste and would make my lower back hurt. Rather than return the bed, which my husband loves, I thought to buy a topper, and after reading the reviews about this feather bed I went ahead a purchased it. I am very satisfied with the result! It was delivered quickly and came in a giant 30 lb box! I opened it up, washed the cover, assembled, and put in on the bed. Slept on it the first night with minimal odor issues. There was a faint scent of hay, which was not unpleasant. I am using it in June in Pittsburgh, PA and do not find it too warm, although my husband finds it very warm and has no need for a blanket to stay cozy. It does require heavy fluffing about once weekly, and light fluffing daily to maintain the 3 to 5" gusset. Overall, I am very happy with this product and feel it is a good buy for the quality,
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality. Fluffy and quite heavy. The cover is very soft.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very
We recently purchased 2 of these Super Snooze 5-inch Thick Baffled Featherbeds. One went on our guest bed and one went on our bed. This is the most comfort that any bed can have added to it. There is no mattress or other type of featherbed that can even come close to this one. We had company arrive the day that these arrived and since the featherbeds had adequate time for fluffing and airing out, we put one on the guest bed. We surprised the others who were going to be forced to sleep on the sofa bed, and put the one that was ordered from Overstock.com for our bed and placed it on the sofa bed. That was the first time any sofa bed has been so comfortable! The quality of this featherbed is equal to none. It comes with a cover and we have never seen feathers coming out of the featherbed or even sticking out. This was a complaint on some of the other featherbeds we looked at on Overstock.com. They arrived much more quickly than we had expected. We can never thank Overstock.com for providing such a high quality featherbed at an affordable price. Even though they are 5 inches thick, our deep pocket fitted sheets went on without any problem. Thank you Overstock.com for giving us the ability to sink into comfort like none other! My husband has severe back problems and since the featherbed went on our bed, he awakens without the pain that he has experienced for years. We only wonder why we waited so long to put this Super Snooze 5-inch Baffled featherbed onto our bed. It feels like sleeping on a cloud! Thank you Overstock.com! Kudos for such a superior product!! This is a 5 star product if one was ever made!
I wish it actually had some down in it, but in terms of price, you get alot here. This featherbed is filled more than any other featherbed you are going to find, so you do actually sink into when you lay down. The cover is nice, and my deep sheets still fit over it comfortably, even though it really does raise my bed quite a bit. I did not notice any smell, but did air it out for 24 hours. After washing the cover, putting it on, and putting my fitted sheet over it, it is almost physically impossible for any feathers to poke me. It is heavy, and I can see how it would be difficult to get into the cover, and to fluff regularly for someone who is small in size, but I haven't had any troubles with it. Yes, you do need to fluff it every 1-3 days, depending on your preferences. If you sleep alone, you will notice it does indent where you sleep, it is not so noticeable when you do sleep with someone on the other side...Point being, find yourself a sleeping partner....Because it is thoroughly better...They will surely enjoy it too! The queen doesn't quite fit on my mattress like it should, but that was expected. It is a little smaller than the measurements of a queen mattress, but a king would simply be too big and hang over the sides. Overall, I have no complaints, and I have been sleeping very comfortably on what was previously a pretty stiff mattress. I would recommend this product for a number of reasons, but mostly because the lady's love it more than I do.
Arrived within a few days. Although it did not have a feather smell, I stil aired it out for 2 days. The cover is surprisingly very good quality & feels like higher thread count. The featherbed is very heavy & feathers are equally distributed. We have slept on it for several months now. It does not clump. There have been no feathers coming out or sticking or poking while sleeping. It is very comfortable. To keep the loft up, I do fluff it daily. If not, it will be soft but will flatten the feathers. It just feels better if you fluff it daily so count on some extra work. I bought deep pocket sheets but have found it easier to fluff if you tuck the sheets under the featherbed instead of the matress (it is that thick) so there is no need to buy special sheets if you do this. I also rotate it with sheet changes thinking it will make a difference. The seams are strong, the baffle sewn tightly & appears well constructed so I am believing it will last for many, many years. Very satisfied & would buy again. I am buying my daughter a white goose down topped featherbed to see if it will hold the loft better wihout the daily fluffing. I bought the set of extra soft down pillows & sleep on them both because regular pillows hold my head too high. I am very, very pleased with them & sleep sound & cuddley. They are not for those who like support from a pillow. Your head sinks into them so I puff them to the middle. I hope you will will enjoy these as much as I do.
This thing is awesome. The key is to fluff it up each evening 30 minutes or so before you go to bed. That will give it some time to loft up. We got rid of our spring mattress (only 2 years old, and awful) and decided to go the natural route a month or so ago. We bought a firm queen futon mattress which we laid on top of our boxspring, and we ordered this feather bed for the top of the futon. Over that we put mattress pad cover and sheets. It has changed our lives - this is the best sleep i've ever had, apart from high end hotel beds. This product seems well made, and the baffles are true baffles, so there are square compartments of feathers throughout it. Just give it a good shake 3 or 4 times on each side before you go to bed and you'll love it. I have had problems with my allergies with other feather products in the past, but I haven't had any problem with this, which indicates that the feathers have been properly cleaned before stuffing. Note that this is full of feathers, it's not goose down, which in this case is a good thing. The feathers loft up really high, and they support you. Nice zippered cover comes with it. I highly recommend this.
I slept on a feather topper at sisters house. Yes when I came home I had to have one on my bed. Who else would have a killer price and fast delivery but Overstock. It helps the old fibromyalgia aches and pains just fluff it up every few day and great for another heavenly night of sleep. OH, yes my dogs just love it also, they do the back rub on it and you can see the pleasure on their faces. LOL
I had been debating on whether or not to get an expensive memory foam mattress because I wasn't getting a good night sleep. I was having sore back and shoulder issues after waking up in the morning. Having just recently stayed in a hotel where the mattress was heavenly and got a good night of sleep I decided to google the hotel to find out what they were putting on their beds. I found out that the chain uses feather beds and that made sense since the bed was so puffy. I immediately ordered this featherbed and was thrilled when I got the result I wanted!! I bought another one recently for one of my spare bedrooms and will most likely buy another one for another spare room. I want my guests to be comfortable. The price is a good value for not having to buy a new mattress. The featherbed needs to be shaken every few days to get it to puff up, but it's not a big deal. I am very, very happy with my purchase!
I didn't want to believe any of the one star reviews and I'm sure most people won't listen to this one either. With so many positive reviews how could they all be wrong? Well I'm not saying those people didn't have positive experiences but I'm not sure how. This product was well constructed and looked promising. Definitely 5 inches tall. But it literally went flat in seconds. It was no more than sleeping on a comforter with high walls. Honestly it was instant back pain for me. Now to be fair I am a 6' 3" 190lb male. Perhaps the majority of these are being purchased by people significantly smaller than me but even if so I can't imagine you'll never be sharing this bed at which point I think the results are going to be the same. I fluffed the bed. I let it air out upon arrival. I really wanted to like it and not have to return it at my own expense but this was simply not a good experience. It made my bed worse. One last thing to note is that I purchased this to top a memory foam mattress. I'm not certain this had any effect on the result but it may have. If you still decide to purchase this, good luck, and I hope your experiences are better than mine were
