Will this mattress work on an old style hospital bed with cross springs and a tall over the mattress steel head and foot board? It raises at the head and at the knees.
I have been sleeping in my Big Boy Lane recliner for the last 7 years, until I slept on this mattress last night. I woke with my arthredic shoulders not hurting and had the most comfortable night sleep in years. This is a quality product with a very restful sleep. I began using it within 40 hours of opening it. No smell and it opened up almost all the way within a few hours....

I ordered a twin XL, but both the width and length are several inches shorter than what is stated. Customer Service willingly sent me a new one after I sent them pictures with the tape measure documenting the size, but then they sent a regular twin rather than the XL I ordered. Very frustrating.Read More
I bought this mattress for my adult son, whose $800 innerspring mattress looked like a nasty hammock after about 5 years. He says that this is a nice mattress and that he sleeps well on it. He is an athlete and needs firm support, without it being a rock. We compared foam densities when shopping, and determined that this mattress has the best density for him, without breaking the bank. The memory foam layer is the right density and thickness, that you don't sink down in it too far, and get too hot. The cover over the mattress is high quality fabric and breathes. With sheets and a mattress pad on it, I don't notice any significant odor. The mattress was shipped compressed and rolled up. Once unrolled, I have *no idea* how you would ship it back so you better be sure lol.Read More
This mattress is so comfortable! We bought this for my husband's 96 year old grandmother who came to stay with us. She said she slept better than ever. Now Im ordering a second one for my kids. There is a strong smell for the first couple days, but it fades away. Overstock shipped it in no time at all as usual.Read More
I purchased this mattress for my 4 year old grandson. He was excited to get a new mattress and seems to like it. As other reviews had noted, his family was surprised to see the packaging but all seems good.Read More

We needed a way to convert a California King waterbed mattress to a Normal King Mattress. Two of these Twin XL placed side by side is an Exact Normal King. When we ordered, we didn't get any shipping confirmation for 3 days, which was unsettling, but then a shipping confirmation came from Ontario, California, so we knew we were OK. The mattresses arrive in round cardboard packages that look like a big heavy sleeping bag, They are easy to open, then expand in several hours to their full size. We have been sleeping on them for a month now, and they are wonderful. Buy this mattress -- you will not be disappointed. To me, they feel like a brand new hotel mattress, very comfortable, nice and firm. When you sleep in one spot for an hour, they kind of indent, it feels really nice, then they spring back quickly when you move. We live in Salt Lake City, and mattress stores charge about 4 times as much for their mattresses that are roughly similar to these. Overstock takes PayPal - so that is really good for us - (PayPal buyer protection) I am an experienced mail order and ebay seller/buyer, so listen to me, I'm not full of crap. Close your eyes and just buy this mattress, period.Read More
We needed a king-sized solution in a house built before beds were that big! Getting mattresses and box springs up the switchback stairs is next to impossible, so we went with a custom-built king-sized captain's bed and a pair of long twin memory foam mattresses. They do have a kind of unpleasant smell when you unpack them but it dissipated for the most part rather quickly (see below) The arrived in a manageable compressed state and expanded just as stated. We covered them with the "king maker" pillowtop (see my other reviews) to make sure we wouldn't feel the gap, but these do not have the "piping" around the edge like a standard mattress and they do not shift around on the wooden box bed at all, so we probably could have done without that, and in fact the mattresses are a snug fit on the bed so there's a slight rise where the "king maker"'s wedge doesn't quite fit between them. These are good mattresses if you like a firm surface. Movement does not transfer to the other occupant as with a standard mattress so they are probably good for restless/light sleepers. Only con is if you end up face down without a pillow there is still (a few months later) a slight remnant of that odor remains, I'm not sure if it's from the king maker or the mattress. We will not be using the bed for a few weeks coming up, so I think we'll try airing all the pieces again with no covers to see if that helps. All-in-all, a good bargain, a good night's sleep.Read More
This mattress was perfect for the Twin XL adjustable bed that I now must use while awaiting back surgery. It is very comfortable and after comparing to other options available, I am convinced that you can't find better quality for the price anywhere. Thanks Overstock for another great buy!Read More
Bought this mattress for our 3 year old. It is nice and firm, but not too firm.Read More
Questions & Answers
I found out it does fit an old hospital bed.
mattress is described as "antimicrobial" Has the foam been chemically treated?
Thank you for contacting us, thenewknees. The foam has additives that make it antimicrobial. The chemicals we use in this foam are safe. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
can this be used on an adjustable platform?
Hello hhogroup, this item could be used on an adjustable platform bed as well. Thanks for shopping with us! -Amanda P
"hhogroup1" I asked a very similar question. I was told by the representative that it does fit an old hospital bed. So if you have a modern adjustable bed, I am sure it will fit yours. The measurements on my bed are 80" length and 37" width. I asked would it sag after using the head raised part and was told, "no it would not because it is an 8" thickness. So I hope I helped you out. John S
