My husband swears he sleeps better, deeper and longer with this mattress! I think it is 100% better that that old pillow-top we were using. We got the medium firmness (even though my hubby wanted the firm) since I am hoping that as it "softens" over time the medium will go to soft and still be comfortable. BTW...have had this mattress about a year now with no evidence of any loss of firmness.
The last bed we had only had a 2 inch memory foam topper on it which was great in its own. I decided to upgrade to this memory foam mattress and I'm so glad I did! The first couple of nights my husband and I slept on it, i was woken up numerous times with hugs and kisses and his voice thanking me for purchasing such an awesome mattress. And it looks as great as it feels. The cat, who usually jumps out of bed after lying in it for about ten minutes, spent about two hours 'sawing logs' in a deep sleep on this mattress. I would recommend (and have recommended it) to everyone... cats included.
I was contemplating getting the Contour Signature Memory Foam by TempurPedic, yet it was really expensive. I went to Overstock to see what they had in terms of memory foam beds. I saw that this mattress had great reviews and thought I would give it a try. I went online and found a coupon for 10% off the Overstock website and got this mattress for much less including shipping for a Cal-King firm mattress. I unwrapped it when it arrived and it did not really smell like everyone said. I set it outside for about 6 hours and then set it up. It was immediately impressed. This bed is really comfortable and the firm is perfect for my husband and myself. We are runners and in our 40's so having a firm mattress is really important to support our back and core. We slept like babies! This mattress is very comparable to the TempurPedic signature or TempurPedic Contour Select for so much less. I highly recommend this mattress!

I have found the above mattress to be a good product. I was a little apprehensive at first because coming from a worn out spring mattress to this was an adjustment for me and I did not get the type of sound sleep I expected. But after about 3-4 days, I had some of the best sleeps of my life since I stopped using my tubular waterbed 3 years ago. I think it takes a few days for your body and the foam to get acclimated to each after which the memory form gets accoustomed to your body weight. By that I mean it gets compressed in the same way and accomodates your weight and form. I bought the firm mattress because I like that type of matress and I'm a big guy (6ft 250 lbs). Also because mattress that is too soft gives me back pains. In the first 3-4 nights I did not get the total restfull sleep I'd anticipated but every night since then it has been sleeping bliss. I'd recommend this product to anyone whose in the same category as I described above. On a final note I was a bit disappointed by the Cal King Memory Foam Pillows that I also purchased. I had been shopping for this product for over 6 months during which I'd seen, tried out, and evaluated the designs of both the mattress and pillow. The other pillows I had seen/tried were either made of a composite of memory foam and some other denser foam in the core or had a sculptured shape that had a thickere portion at the widest side os the pillow to support your neck. These pillows were just a piece of memory foam cut into the shape of a standard shaped pillow (with the proper length for a king bed) that is thickest in the middle and tapers to a slimmer thickness at the edges. It wasn't very thick in the middle so when any weight was put on it, it compressed to thin profile that barely supported your head with any elevation. Though it sort of works for me since I prefer a flatter pillow, but I believe it might be an issue for other people as its barley supporting my head in the fashion I would have suspected, based on the other pillows I tried. Of course once you open the package you cannot return the item, so I'm stuck with it, but I would have wanted to exchange it for a different type of pillow if I knew ahead of time that was the type I'd get. So I'll just have to chalk it up to dealing with the prevailing policies when you purchase through the internet.
When the delivery guy came with this mattress, he thought it was a rug because of the way it was packaged--all rolled up tightly. It expanded to about 10 inches immediately after cutting through the tape. It also has an unexpected bamboo (anti-microbial) covering. First night was a little different from our spring coil, but since then, it has been great. I rarely wake up, or move, for that matter! It is firmer than I expected--I ordered a medium--I wish I ordered soft, but I was worried about it being too soft. I thought about ordering a mattress topper since this was so cheap, but the firmness really hasn't been an issue since I've been sleeping all night--same with husband who is 6'4" and 230 lb.:) Great buy!
Replaced my CA. King waterbed matress with this one. Bought the soft and it is very firm, too firm for me. It is quite comfortable on your back, but if you are a side sleeper, watch out! I have a rotator cuff injury and this matress is killing my shoulders. Wife wouldn't sleep on it till a 3" foam topper arrived. What is the point of a foam topper over memory foam.........should have just turned it over. It is only slightly better with the pad. Wish we would have tried some out before buying.
Ok. I have put off reviewing this for far too long. My husband and I are OBSESSED with this bed. We will cut the roof off our house to free this bed if we have to move. It is incredibly comfortable. We ordered a Cal King in SOFT. We've had it for three years and still nightly say "Oh YEAH SOO GUUUD" (verbatim people) when we get into bed. Other than this 5 star review we have done everything we can to not encourage the people who make this to raise their prices should we ever need a replacement... Without ANY prodding from us anyone who has sat or laid on it has bought it. I'm not exaggerating... When my husband and I planned on relocating out of the country, both of us had listed our mattress as the #1 can't-leave-behind item. My hubby is a super nerd and his computer was listed 2nd people!!! I'm a photographer and my camera was 2nd!!! We have been very fortunate and have done extensive traveling but ALWAYS talk about our bed while we're away, ALWAYS!!! It's mentioned every last night abroad, and on every flight home. It comes rolled up like a giant cigar and thank GOD for that because it's humongous when its unrolled and has had a chance to expand. You spend so much of your life asleep. You need this bed!!!
Well after 3 yrs im looking for a new mattress-this one is getting soft and my neck and back are starting to hurt.I sleep in my other room with a cheap box spring that I feel great on.Very disappointed that it only lasted 2.5 yrs.I ordered the medium maybe should of got the firm.
My husband and I had been looking for a memory foam mattress but didn't want to pay so much for it. I read all the reviews, and we went for it. We received the product rolled up which was nice since we have lots of steps to get to our bedroom. Once rolled out, the mattress took no time at all to get into its shape. However, I do have to take a star off because the smell was really, really, strong. So strong that we had to leave the window open and a fan to get rid of the smell before placing the sheets on the bed. After a week of airing this product out, and spraying enough fabreze, we are very happy for it. My husband is 6-2 and has a very stiff back. So far he's woken up with no back pain, and I can only credit this mattress for it. It is a good product, but the smell is quite strong at the beginning.
This is our first memory foam mattress. After three weeks, we can say that it is extremely comfortable. We did not notice an odor when it arrived. We ordered firm and it is firm. I have not woke up with the back ache I had with my old mattress. Very comfortable nights sleep.

We bought this about 3 months ago. It is the best sleep we have had. Both of us sleep on our sides or back and it forms withs support! No back pain since and wake fully rested. He likes softer but I like harder. We ended up going for the medium firmness, it's perfect! It didn't take a full 24-48 hrs to expand to full size..only about 8 hours. Only thing is if you sleep hot ..it will get warm. We just use a sheet. I would highly recommend this!

After ~6 months it's apparent that the mattress gradually loses its 'memory.' Meaning, the area where I sleep on is now soft and is no longer is as supportive as it was originally (which was 'firm' - and still is... but, only around the edges). I am worried it will be like a hammock in another 6 months! (that's a little exaggeration but it is breaking down where I sleep and is far from ideal). My hope is that after a week of vacation, it will come back to a more uniform firmness - but realistically it appears this mattress does not wear well at all. (...too bad, cause I've been loving it otherwise) Note: This is a cal king 'firm' mattress and I am 6'3. Regarding my rating: "Appearance" = Comfort / "Workmanship" = Durability. [I would only recommend this for a guest bed or to someone who is a 'lightweight'].
I love this mattress! My husband and I bought the firm option 5 years ago and still love it! I've recommended it to many friends and everyone has been equally as impressed! The firmness has stayed all 5 years and we have only rotated it once. I'm petite and my husband is not but it fits us both perfectly. I prefer a firm bed because soft mattresses are very painful on my back, so if you want a soft option this may not be the mattress for you. But if you need a firm, comfortable bed that allows you to wake up pain free, this is the best and most reasonably priced option. We originally were planning on buying the firm temper-pedic bed but were scared off by the price. My brother in-law recommended this bed and we have been so happy that he did.
I actually bought 2 of these mattresses. One in medium for my husband and I and one for my mother in soft. My mom loves her bed and actually sleeps know. I had a bad back when i first ordered mine but before i got to actuall sleep on it I ended up having to have back surgery. I thank God and overstock.com every day for this bed its fantastic!!! I highly recommend this bed it has helped me and my husband and I are not small people. If you are looking for a great bed at a fair price this is the bed for you!!!

Really like the mattress. It is firm. Purchased 2. First one bought several months ago and put in cal king waterbed frame. Fits great, but hubby wanted more cushy on top, so added a 3" topper. Liked 1st so much that bought another plus a topper for primary house. It's on a slat platform frame. At 14" of mattress plus topper, you need deep pocket fitted sheet. Sleep very well no matter which house we are at.
Great mattress at a great price. Super comfortable. Only complaint is that it really, really holds the heat, causing both me and the dog to overheat. Had to buy a lighter weight comforter and on here today ordering a pillow topper that will hopefully work as a buffer and reduce the heat retention.
