I decided to purchase this futon based on reviews on this site. And it was less than half of the cost of a 10 inch futon for sale at futon stores in NYC, so the price was hard to beat. I have been sleeping on a mattress that compressed to @ 4 inches after 5+ years so anything thicker would be better than what I had. I let the mattress air out and decompress for a long weekend while I went out of town. I was amazed by how much thicker it was than the futon mattress I was sleeping on. All around I am pleased with this mattress so far, even though I've slept on it for about a week, BUT it's not a full 10 inches. It seems to be @ 8 in the middle that gets the most weight on it and @ 9 inches on the ends. But it's still a great deal compared to in stores. The shipping was fast, I think I received it 5 business days after I ordered it.

This ten inch mattress arrived with a promise that it would expand to a full 10 inches in a day or two, as the air had been taken out for the purpose of shipping. But it never expanded to more than 8 inches. It is extremely hard, works well for using the futon as a couch but very poorly for use as a mattress. I had to buy an additional two-inch foam pad to in order for someone to sleep comfortably on it.
Decided on this mattress after reading other reviews. The color was great. Although the size was not exactly 10 inches it was over 9 and at least 91/2 in spots. It fits our oak frame perfectly and is very comfortable for sitting. It is in our spare room and a recent guest slept well on it. (We did add a light foam topper for sleeping, however, my son napped on it in the sofa position without topper and said he liked it.) It looks good without a cover, but I have just ordered one for extra protection and versatility. The only drawback is that the navy mattress has a very strong dye smell. After 3 weeks it is still evident. The topper and sheets camouflaged it when our guest slept on it. Gave 4 stars only because of the odor.

We got this futon mattress and were not impressed about the quality or look but we found out that retuning it is going to cost us a mere $****. So if you don't know what you are getting do not rush into buying it from this site. Go to a place where you can see and feel what you want to buy.
I've had this mattress for over 2 years now, and it's held up pretty well. It did rip in one area, which I stitched up and haven't had a problem with so far. I've slept on it a few times in the past and it's been ok, support-wise. Nothing special, but it is just a futon mattress - not expecting it to be super supportive!
Purchased this to replace a worn out futon cushion. I paid $*** for a premium Otis cushion 8 years ago from a local furniture store, and frankly, never found it all that comfortable. I debated between the 8-, 9- and 10-inch mattresses, and after reading the reviews extensively, purchased the 10-inch. I was concerned that this may be too thick to properly fold into my futon frame, as I only use it as a couch. Well, it folded in perfectly and is not sliding forward at all - which was a constant annoyance with my previous mattress. As soon as I unpacked, it came up to at least 8.5" right away, and within a few hours, came up to a good 9". I find it to be that perfect "firm yet soft", or "soft yet firm" that only a futon gives you! I chose the sage color, which is pretty accurate to the color swatch - love the color! Barely any chemical smell as other reviewers have reported. To summarize: Good quality product, excellent value, excellent service from Overstock.
What material is the outside cover made of like 100 % cotton or what and can it be removed to be washed? Some of the reviews said they bought a cover for it. Why would you need a cover on it?hdavis0405 on Sep 16, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
