We ordered this mattress for my daughter to use in the bedroom of her apartment at college. She has a history of back problems and does not sleep comfortably on most mattresses, especially futon mattresses. As soon as she started sleeping on it, she raved about how comfortable it was and how much she loved it. While visiting her at school I slept on it one night, and I have to say she is right. I slept more comfortably than I have on almost any other mattress, which I find especiallly amazing for a futon mattress.
This mattress was great in that it is solid in construction. However, there were a lot of strings attached to the mattress when I pulled it out of the bag which looked sloppy and had to be trimmed. Also, the mattress is very difficult to make stay in place. It wants to unfold and slide off the frame. I bought this for the wreck room in my home so, it is adequate. Haven't tried it as a bed though that was a reason I bought the innerspring mattress. I would not recommend this for a primary couch. It is too frustrating!
This mattress is very, very comfy for sleeping! However due to thick mattress it is somewhat difficult to change our futon from the flat sleeper position back into a sofa position. We hope it will become easier with continued use. Still love the mattress though, as a sleeper it is wonderful!
I bought this product to serve primarily as a couch for my living room and use as a bed only occasionally when I had visitors. Unfortunately, this mattress is much too firm to function as a couch, and continually tries to flatten itself out. Since my futon frame does not have a rail to contain the mattress, it is constantly losing its shape between uses. It is also EXTREMELY heavy and cumbersome, which makes it difficult for a single person to return it to its desired orientation. Although it is as comfortable and firm as advertised, I would NOT recommend this product for living room use, especially if you do not have a frame made specifically for this particular brand of mattress.If it was not so heavy and impossible to ship, I would have returned it immediately.
I used a similar futon mattress in college as my normal bed, but it was discontinued. So, I ordered this mattress in Aug 2012. I specifically wanted a bed with springs since my old mattress had them and lasted me 4 years.
1 1/2 years later I'm looking for a replacement for this specific mattress. This would probably be perfect for a guestroom or a bed not used that often. My husband and I use it as our normal bed, and it was comfortable for about a year. Now the springs are poking up from the mattress and are very uncomfortable.
I'm looking at a normal mattress as a replacement. They are more expensive, but am finding some for double this ($X00-$X00) and they have a 10 year warranty. No warranty on this futon mattress. So, if I had to replace this futon every year... it certainly doesn't payout in the long run.
Some other notes: It did have a strong smell upon opening, but we aired it out for a weekend when we were away. It did expand a bit from the vacuum-packed shipping. It doesn't particularly fold into a couch very easily because it is rather thick and bulky.
Love sitting on my new Futon mattress. I searched online for the best mattress to purchase and this was one that was recommended. It sits very well. I have not had anyone sleep on it yet but will find out with time. So far, very happy.

Enough time has passed to say this futon mattress wears very well. Used on a wooden futon frame in the basement it has been used by our sons friends spending the night. We even use din when relatives stayed over and it slept very nice.

Can this futon (or any other innerspring futon) be used on a trifold futon frame? How about a memory foam futon?drlisagriffin on Oct 29, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Unfortunately, this item was not made for use on a trifold frame and may not bend correctly due to the inner spring. Unfortunately, we have no memory foam futon either.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 29, 2012
Which matress style stays in place better without losing is position on the frame. Spring or foam. Are the spring ones bi-fold?lmgreenedh on Sep 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
To keep its position on a futon frame, the material on the underside of the mattress will be the most important instead of what type of material the mattress is constructed of. This spring mattress is a bi-fold mattress.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 4, 2012
What color/wood type is the wooden frame in the picture for this futon mattress? Also is it no longer listed on the website for sale? on Jun 8, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This ad is for a futon mattress not the frame, I cannot tell you what the frame is made of since we do not carry it at this time. Also I am not sure if we ever actually did or if the one in the picture was simply staging for the mattressoverstockcustomercare1 on Jun 11, 2012
