I am from India and did not like the spring mattress used here in America, I was desperately looking for simple cotton filled mattress. I am lucky to find it here. Its just like the mattress we sleep on in India. Very firm at the same time soft. My wife just loves it. All my friends also liked it, they told me they also plan to buy it.
The mattress arrived in 4 business days using the included standard shipping option. The mattress feels different than a standard mattress because it is not a standard mattress. As in the picture, the mattress is not completely flat, there are indentations which are part of the design (I assume this is part of the scaffolding that holds the cotton in place). Things you should know: The mattress did not come vacuum packed. It arrived wrapped in plastic wrap. It takes two people to carry the mattress. I decided to give this mattress 5 Stars because it is a good product for a fair price. That said, I think most people would prefer a standard mattress for regular sleeping. I would not suggest using this as your everyday mattress unless you like the feel of a cotton mattress as opposed to a standard mattress.

As I had figured, this mattress is actually more like 5-6 inches. I have no problem with that in the least. It's still very comfortable, plush, and I haven't slept better in years. I have this mattress directly on the floor, like most other reviewers. It is VERY heavy. You really need 2 people moving this thing. I was able to slowly drag it in the box all by myself to my bedroom after the FexEx driver wouldn't step foot in my house, due to liablity issues, apparently. The mattress is every bit of the 100lbs the listing states. It comes rolled up like a taquito and there are plastic straps holding it in place. Then it's covered in stinky plastic wrapping. And then there's the outer box... also wraped with plastic strapping. The box was beat up when it arrived, but the mattress was completely unharmed. I can't imagine the trip the dang thing had across the country being that heavy and huge. Oh and it was delivered exactly 4 days after my order, and I didn't even choose expedited shipping. That was awesome. Anyway, once out of the packaging and unrolled I immediately regretted not rolling it out exactly where I wanted it to be. When it's all sprawled out, moving it again seriously does require two people just because it's awkward, and did I mention... HEAVY! Oh and the smell. I expected that too based on other reviewers. The smell lingered for maybe 2-3 days and then it was just fine. It smelled chemical-like and almost cedar-like, it was weird. But no smell in the least now. Oh and I actually haven't gotten out the tape measure to see exactly how big it is, but a standard king fitted sheet doesn't fit. I'm going to end up getting a flat sheet and sewing some elastic on it to make do with what I've got. In spite of all this, I wouldn't have any other bed. This is the ultimate. I no longer have back pain, it's extremely comfortable (firm, for sure, but supportive), and looks great. I highly recommend it. For the price, it just cannot be beat!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is a shade shy of white. Just like the photo on the product page.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. As expected. All materials used serve their purpose. It isn't especially high quality, but is still great.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It isn't 8 inches thick. The material may be sewn to hold 8 inches of thickness, but because the fill is loose fibers, it isn't square and doesn't stack up that high.
I have been sleeping on the floor using a futon mattress for 25 years. Recently, I decided to upgrade from Queen to King size. I saw this futon advertised through Overstock and the price was reasonable--especially when you factor in SHIPPING!!! Although the futon appears well made, I am not sure how long it will keep its structural integrity because the cotton doesn't feel packed very tight. So for those using it on a futon frame this will be fine. I'm not sure how many king sized futon frames there are in the world though. I also ordered a 4inch memory foam pad for the futon, which makes the whole setup extremely comfortable and will probably keep the futon from packing down. I will try to remember to update this review in a year or so to see if the futon keeps its shape. As of right now, I'm sleeping wonderfully!

We purchased this item and it is not as described. It states that is is 8 inches thick when in fact it is 5. It also states that it is 78x80 inches but it is 76x78 inches. This is the most uncomfortable thing in the world. We have had it for less than a week and it is terrible. I do have a photos of it with a tape measure so you can see the exact size. I have never had a problem with Overstock but his really was a big waste of money.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very thin and incorrect size
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very poor
Arrived in 3 weeks in California. Very heavy over 100 pounds. After unwrapping smells a bit of chemical for couple of days. Smell goes away in a week. Very firm, just like cotton mattresses in India. My back troubles went away within a week. Bit too firm for people who sleep on the side. Great for back and stomach sleepers. Need to rotate the mattress in first few weeks every 3-4 days to even out the cotton filling.
Great especially for those who sleep on their back. My wife complains about "waxy" smell though. My nose isn't that sensitive.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? cotton - it compares well

I love, love, love the mattress. I was grown up where we use to sleep on really firm mattresses and this one is almost as firm as it can get. As another reviewer says, it is perfect for "Asian Indian people". Being one, I could not agree more. We are so used to it, that we have difficulty sleeping in hotels or vacation rentals unless they have extra firm mattresses. If needed, I would buy more of these without a thought!
We received the package quickly...very easy to maneuver, as long as it's kept strapped together, it will slide across the floor and rug...the scent went away by days end...VERY comfortable for our family- 2 adults and a toddler...another small child can fit in, however, thats when there's maneuvering required! The quality is good...solid, even cotton distribution..not lumpy at all.Cool tempt material...unfortunately, i've had to clean toddler in training pee pees ..it cleans up with peroxide and clear soap...also borax/soap mix..baking soda will stain. Overall we are pleased...my husband questioned paying ***$ for a futon mattress, but has since changed his views..Also, the matrress went on sale for maybe **$ cheaper days after we purchased it 😣...called overstock and they refunded the difference in price since it was in a weeks timeframe.Whoo hoo, way to go overstock👍 Would recommend and reorder..I did ALOT of research and i feel this is the best quality one for the price of a king size mattress..our first choice was an Organic cotton japanese style or anything close to that with nice quality and nice price for our budget right now...nothing showed up less than a thousand$$..this has been the next best choice..very glad we found this!
I have been looking for a firm mattress forever. This fits the bill. Just a few cons which I am willing to overlook. 1. Packaging was insufficient. It barely made it one piece. 2. It is heavy and kind of tough to move. 3. Weird smell which takes a week to wear off. 4. I thought you could unzip and wash the cover. I am not sure why they would have a zipper if all you see is loose cotton inside. 5. It is approx 76 by 76 inches and kinda low once you put it on your bed. Anyways, I am getting good sleep for sure. I was never a fan of the box spring and mattress which were never firm enough and where you can feel the other person turning.
Suffered from intractable back pain for almost two years from sleeping on a mattress that cost $1300 (without the box spring). Pain free after ONE NIGHT on this futon. No odor as some have described. The shipping department is not too concerned about packaging and protecting this 100+ pound behemoth, so the cardboard was ripped in many places and even the plastic covering was ripped. The mattress probably would have been ruined if it had been raining. "Free" shipping. Still no regrets. There is no reason to go to a mattress store ever -- futons are the way to go.
I had couple of futon mattress and they were extremely good for my back, (bought from King Futon in san jose, california). After I moved to Texas needed another one. Bought this one but highly disappointed with this product. It says 8 inch but after using couple of days it became 3 inch. Does not hold it shape, very soft.
