I would take my review with a grain of salt. I have never had a memory foam anything before, and was used to much lower quality box springs and futon beds. I did my research however and this bed met the specifications I wanted. Low cost, light weight, good user rating, and I did want to try out memory foam.-----Since the mattress is not 100% memory foam it will only contour so far against your body. If you stand on it, it will contour almost to the ground with about 2 inches of thickness between you and the base support. I still cannot feel the base support though so that is great. If laying on it, it feels very firm. I liked this because even though it feels firm it still contours to your body. Laying on my back I feel like I am laying on a very firm level board without the worry of certain 'parts' of my body raising my spine up in unusual ways.-----I do however sleep on my side and can notice it feel more resistant to the extra weight, which leaves me feeling uneven. I find myself actually sleeping on my side/stomach and sleeping peacefully. I believe if it was closer to 60% memory foam instead of the 1.5-2 inches of memory foam topper I would be sleeping on my side a lot easier. But those get real high in price based on what I can see, so this is very forgivable in my eyes.-----In short, great value for a firm mattress for a back sleeper. If your like me and plan to put this on top of a loft bed one day, I think you would be hard pressed to find another mattress with such a great value, quality, and low weight. I am glad I got the 8 inch mattress versus the 6 inch.-----P.S. it took my mattress 12 hours to go from 6 inches to closer to 7, and after the full 72 hours it's closer to 8 inches (or rather it probably is, but it is hard to measure from dead center above and below at the same time.) I think the review that says it's a light 6 inch mattress did not give it any time to expand beyond it's initial form. Also there was no smell with mine.
I purchased this after realizing how poor my granddaughters bed was. This was a steal! It is so so comfortable for me. I have had guests - adults and they have commented on how well they slept. For the price the quality is outstanding. I would recommend this purchase to anyone. When you get the bed it is rolled up so initially you have doubts, but unroll it and sleep on it one night. I have had it for several months and it has not changed in quality. What a great buy.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. What a steal. This bed is so comfortable it is unbelievable. My granddaughter has slept much better since we purchased this mattress.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
This is our second memory foam mattress from overstock. The first we ordered was a 10 inch mattress for the top of a daybed. This 8 inch mattress we purchased for the pop up trundle that goes under the day bed. This mattress works well for that purpose. It fits the trundle perfectly and still slides under the bed. However, this is a very soft mattress. The other bed we had ordered was much more firm and had that true memory foam feel. This mattress is more like regular foam. It doesn't really form to your body and give you that weightless feeling that true memory foam does. It took no time at all to pop into its correct shape after opening. The smell wasn't too bad, but did take a good day or so to dissapate. I would reccomend this mattress for bunk beds or trundle beds. I would not reccomend it if you are looking for a high quality memory foam mattress for everyday use.
This foam mattress is SOOOOO comfortable. We purchased 2 of overstock's 8" Comfort Dreams Memory foam mattresses last year for our college age boys & they love the mattresses. Since then we purchased a summer cottage and are replacing old mattresses there with the same. Last weekend I slept on one & it really is so incredibly comfortable. A better than excellent nights sleep! People ask "doesn't foam get hot?" A mattress pad, like one you would want to use on any mattress, takes care of that & we have not had that problem at all.
This mattress is amazing. It is soft yet firm and your body just melts into it. I had never slept on a memory foam mattress before however I have used and liked a memory foam mattress topper. If you have ever tried and liked a topper than you will love this mattress. The mattress was packed and shipped with great care and Overstock has never let me down on the quality of their shipping. The mattress is solid but I was able to move and lift it on the bed by myself. I am thrilled with my purchase and would highly recommend it and purchasing it from Overstock.
Since "soft" and "medium" appear to be fairly subjective terms, I'll just say this is VERY comfortable. bought the twin size for a guest bed. If I stand on it, I sink right down, and would think it's WAY too soft. But when my body weight is distributed more evenly, it conforms around me just enough (I do like my beds soft, though), but still provides support -- I don't feel like I'm sinking into the mattress.
This was good quality but not firm enough, I was using it as a 'sitting cushion' for a daybed that is being used as a sofa. I gave it to a single working mother who could use it for her son. I bought a 'regular' twin mattress locally to replace it.. Even though it didn't fit my need, I would still recommend it for a childs bed.
Once you have slept on a memory foam mattress you will never sleep on anything else. When you lie down your whole body goes aaaaaaaah! This is a good quality mattress at a reasonable cost. I bought it specifically for an antique, single, 4 poster bed. Fits beautifully.
My daughter needed a new mattress for her daybed so we took her to a mattress store to try out mattress. She loved a $900 tempurpedic, but there was no way we could spend that amount of money on a twin mattress. A friend suggested this mattress and my daughter loves it. She no longer gets up in the morning talking about a bad night's sleep and now my son wants one. It is the perfect firmness for her and it doesn't get hot like some memory foam mattresses. It was a great purchase.
