I have owned this bed for almost five years. I bought the soft version, which (as other reviews have stated) started out actually being quite firm (but not uncomfortably so). I loved the bed at first. After about two years, the foam had broken down enough that I would consider it soft. It began to feel like I was melting into the bed after laying on it for a few minutes. I still slept quite well and it was only an minor annoyance to roll myself out of the valley when getting out of bed. After four years, the foam stopped rebounding and began to have a permanent dent or sag where I would normally sleep. Mind you, I did rotate the bed every three months or so to keep it wearing evenly all this time. No matter. It was queen size and I generally sleep alone, so I just slept in a different spot. Well another year brings us to now and the bed is now like a pit. There are no more areas of the bed that don't sag, except the edges. The memory foam bottoms out and I wake up in the night with back pain, hip pain, and numb arms. I'm a side sleeper with no preexisting back trouble or nerve problems. I am not an overly large person (6'0", 180 lb), so I did not expect the bed to break down like this. I cannot sleep in the bed anymore. I have been sleeping on my couch for over a month while I've been trying to scope out a replacement for it that will both last for more than four years and not cost me a month's pay. Upon reading all the reviews before my purchase, I thought I was getting a great deal on a great mattress. Now I realize that no one had one of these mattresses for long enough yet to realize how quickly they deteriorate. I cannot express how disappointed I am with this mattress. I would not recommend it to anyone unless you need a cheap mattress for a guest bedroom that only gets used a few times a year or if you're an out of state college student that won't be taking their mattress with them at the end of their four years. Even then, I'm sure you can find a decent spring mattress that will last longer at the same price point at a local big box store. Oh and I've learned from reading other reviews (not just here, but on most any and all memory foam mattresses) that you cannot expect the mattress warranty to cover sagging. Most manufacturers won't cover it and claim it's normal wear.
I purhcased this mattress 12/5/11. It came within a few days and was left on my porch. I thought they would contact me to make sure I was home but whatever. When it came it was tightly rolled in a black bag. The first night I could not get comfortable. I had to put blankets on top to sleep on just to feel some what comfortable. Mind you, before this I was sleeping on a very old mattress. I think Id be more comfortable sleeping on the floor!!!! I know that sounds ridiculous. When I felt the bed it feels very comfortable but I just cant get comfortable on this mattress. I've slept on it for 5 nights now. Plus on top of not being comfortable it is HOT!!! If I knew this mattress didnt breathe I would have never bought it. Even if it felt great and gave me a great night sleep I would still return it. I wake up in the middle of the night with my legs pouring down sweat. My house it set to 64 degree at night and its winter here in sacramento,CA. I think if it was summer I would have already returned this mattress. I would not recommend this mattress.

Let me preface that I almost always discount isolated low star reviews, because in most cases I find I'm just not that picky, and if it works for 80% of people it works for me. Having said, that, this is the first time I've gone out of my way to write a low review when the vast majority are high. If I had written a review 2 weeks after I received this mattress, I too would have raved about this mattress's value and given it a 4 or 5 star rating. In fact, I did brag to family and friends. Fast forward 6 months. The mattress is sagging where I most often sleep. I'm 5'8" 160 lbs. I've had a dull back ache for nearly 2 months now. Rotating the bed and sleeping in different spots does help, but the mattress is not recovering fast enough now to find the unworn spots, and what used to take a month to sag is now taking 3-4 days before I need to look for a new spot to sleep. I bought the medium firmness. In hindsight, perhaps the firm mattress would have soften to the perfect firmness and not given way like this one does. I'm back in the market considering toppers, because I still can't bring myself to pay Temperpedic prices, but I do enjoy the memory foam experience at its best. Beware of the reviewers who's excitement is only 1-3 weeks old! If you re-read reviewers who are chiming in after 6-12 months, almost all of them are saying these mattresses do NOT stand the test of time. Wish I had better news; good luck!

This bed is a pleasure to sleep on. I'm a guy so I got the medium firm and it's just the right firm for me. I got it because I have back problems and I can't sleep on most soft beds. My sister stayed over and slept on it and got herself one. She went with the softer version and it's also great. I recommend heavier people or guys get the medium firm and lighter people or women get the soft. They are both super comfortable and definitely the best purchase I have made from OverStock. Get it, Get it, Get it, you won't be disappointed.
I ordered this mattress in the medium firmness based upon all of the user reviews, many saying it was too firm. This mattress, although comfy, is WAY too soft for anyone like me with a bad back. I've slept on other memory foam products before and found them to be very firm at first and then soften as they warm up. I was kind of hoping for that. I live in the mountains and it's very cold in my bedroom, but when you lie down on this bed it is immediately soft....too soft. When it warms up it gets even softer, and after having it only 1 week, the middle of the bed is already too soft to sleep on. I would return it if I could. I would only recommend this bed in the medium firmness for someone who likes a very soft bed and does not have a bad back.
After much research, we purchased the medium level mattress and are glad we did. The mattress is for our teenage daughter's room (she weighs less than 120#) and she wanted something soft but not too soft (her name is NOT Goldilocks). The previous reviews indicated the firm mattress was exceptionally firm and we didn't want to take a chance that the soft would not give her support. The medium is quite soft...when my husband sits on the edge of the mattress he compresses it, but lying on it is heavenly. It is the perfect density for a person who weighs under 180 pounds. If you are heavier, I can imagine that there would be greater compression of the foam and a firmer mattress might be in order. As always, our experiences with Overstock continues to totally please us...price point, value, quality and service for returns if needed *but mattress is non-returnable"...Color me a happy customer!!
Wanted to give this mattress some time before reviewing. Have had it for about a month now and absolutely love it. My husband is a "thrasher" at night and would seriously disturb my sleep with moving and kicking his legs. I never slept well unless he wasn't in the bed, but it doesn't matter with this mattress. Now if I could just get rid of his snoring...I love the feel of this bed, bought the medium firmness and it's perfect. I was concerned about being too hot so I also purchased the iso-cool mattress pad after reading reviews and it's very cushionly and well made. The assembly was a snap, I opened up the mattress right onto the boxspring and an hour later it was pretty much fully risen. Would never want a spring mattress again, I love the reduction of motion w/ this mattress. The price was great and I will be curious to see how many years it will last. I now look forward to getting into bed at night! Would not hesitate to reccommend this or purchase it again, it's fantastic!
I bought this bed about a month ago. One of the best purchases I have ever made! First of all, it arrived exactly on time and my boyfriend said he was able to easily get it in the house and out of the packaging. He said it regained its fullness and form just about an hour after he took it out of the plastic. No smell whatsoever. I got home, we put sheets on it and used it that night. I love the support it gives me. We got a meduim, so it is not too mushy or sinky, it molds to your body every single time supporting my back and legs perfectly. I don't wake up in the middle of the night with my extremeties asleep anymore. And best of all--I sleep through the night. I was having problems with that before we got this mattress. We got a queen size, and after doing some research online I thought the 11 inch was the best to go with. Glad I did, because standard sheets fit just right with this one. I don't think that would have been the case with like a 8 or 7 inch. And, btw, both my boyfriend and I find we don't wake each other up if we toss or move around anymore. Bottom line, if you are looking to try a memory foam mattress and don't want to spend a ton of money, or if you are not sure you even want a memory foam and just want to try it out--Get This Bed! We both love it and have not been able to find a downside to it. Great buy for the price!
The price is right, but the bed is not. People complained a bit about the heat in these reviews, but that does not do the situation justice. It is impossible for me to sleep on my back on this bed (I'm 6'1" 165 pounds); it turns into a furnace under even light covers. As a result, I am forced to sleep on my sides, so I toss all night. I seriously cannot remember the last time I slept through a night. I have decided going bargain brand on a product I use 8-9 hours a day was a mistake. I suggest you continue looking, and if you were really interested in my advice, I would say go to a real life store to check mattresses out.
I couldn't be more pleased!! The mattress is incredibly comfortable and luxurious. I purchased the soft and it is perfect - still firm but wonderful. I have owned the Tempur-Pedic brand and wanted one again but didn't want the price tag. This was my first purchase with the"O" and I couldn't be happier with the entire process and product. I shopped thoroughly and I couldn't have picked a better product. The value is incredible - almost too good to be true but it is! I have never reviewed anything in my life but this was worth sharing!
Only lasted 2 years before the mattress cover ripped and the foam itself began to deteriorate. I am not home much, so it's not a matter of overuse.

I had ordered the medium firm before I ordered this one and found that it was too firm for me so I ordered this one in soft. The soft is as firm as the medium and hurts my back and hips. I gave both away because there is an " all sales final" on this bed. I think that there should be some sort of return/exchange policy on items that are seriously" NOT AS DESCRIBED" or defective, but you live and learn.
After doing a lot of research, I decided to take the plunge and order this mattress. The reviews were excellent. I have a bad lower back, so I was anticipating that this mattress would help, wrong. We ordered the soft mattress because all the reviews said it was the way to go and that firm was like sleeping on a rock. In hindsight, we should have ordered the firm or actually not ordered at all. The soft feels comfortable at first, but to me ot becomes uncomfortable after a while. I have had the mattress for about 6 weeks, hoping it will get better, but my back has actually gotten worse. I will never order a non-returnable item such as this again. Hoping I can maybe get $200 from *****.
I have owned the mattress for over 2 years now. There are clearly indentations from our bodies on it but that's not the problem I have. Even though the description states it can be used on platform beds, my mattress has developed severe mold smell on the bottom side of the mattress. I tried airing it out, cleaning it, the smell is just getting worse and worse. I can't see anything on any of the surfaces but I can definitely smell it. I didn't cut it open yet to see what's inside (not sure I want to see it). Well, regardless... I need a new mattress. Don't buy for platform beds!!!!!

I had my concerns about switching from a spring mattress to a memory foam mattress, but now I doubt that I will ever go back to springs. After reading many of the reviews and weighing all of the pros and cons, I made the purchase. I figured, for the price, it was worth at least trying. The one concern that I had, that I did not see addressed in any of the reviews that I had read, was if a foam mattress would be comfortable for... um... anything more than just sleeping? I can't be the only one who had this concern. So I would like to put others minds at rest and report that while slightly different than the spring-back of a spring mattress, the foam mattress does not impede other activities. Matter of fact, if you share your home with children or others, this mattress is perfect for amorous couples. No mattress or headboard noises! I agree with other reviews that the medium is very firm but not uncomfortable. I will be adding a 1.5 foam topper for a bit of extra softness. The most comfortable feature of this bed, for my fiance and I, is the fact that unlike most spring mattresses, the entire surface of this mattress is smooth. No quilting, texture, or bumps. This is a great mattress for the price. If it lasts only 3 to 5 years, it would still be worth it. We've owned it for a few weeks now and have no complaints yet.

This bed was terrible and it can't be returned. I opted for the soft since other reviewers said the medium was too firm. There is NO way to get comfortable on this bed. I slept for only 2 hours last night after tossing and turning a million times. DO NOT waste your money on this bed. Go to a real store and try the mattresses out.
Ok this is a nice bed set. At least compared to sleeping on a couch for the last two months. I researched the types of memory foam a lot. The density and thickness of the memory foam determines the feel. Overstock has a great memory foam buying guide. I used it and compared many different densities in real life. Tempnamebrand is like a 5.3 density..for a very cradeling squishy effect..that might be hot for some users as you sink into the foam and it surrounds you. This bed is a 4 pound density that cradles you..but not as much as a 5.3. This allows for easier rolling and turning during the night. i sleep on my back and the sides... as I said Three nights of sleeping and i am super happy with the sleep I am getting. There have been no miraculous cures...but it is very comfortable. Before the separation, i was used to sleeping on an air adjustable bed.....and i like this mattress much better. The order shipped and I received it 5 business days after ordering. I opened the mattress and two hours later had a very sound sleep as it 'fluffed' up quickly. No out of the ordinary odors with this memory foam product. i ltried out many different types of new mattresses and they all had "new" odors...much like new cars smell different than cars you have driven for 90,000 miles. I am extremely happy with the overstock with their buying guide, description of the merchandise, the speed/price of shipping and the quality of the product.
I Strongly urge anyone considering buying this mattress to read the review below: EVEN THOUGH IT HAS SUCH GOOD REVIEWS! I loved this product when I first bought it. Great Price, supper soft and comfortable. People couldn't believe how little I paid for it. I bought it in may of 2013. About 7-8 months in, I started noticing that the middle of the mattress (which is where i sleep,) was starting to cave in a bit. This got progressively worse over the next several months. In case you are wondering, I am not overweight. I am a 165 pound 5"10 male. Over the past several weeks, it has gotten to the point where I am getting serious back pains sleeping on this bed. I'm in my 20's way to young to be dealing with back pains, and I'm sure the cause is a mattress that sinks in a lot in the center not on the sides. The worst part? The warranty is a joke!!! If despite this review, you do decide to purchase the mattress based on all the other good reviews, Don't buy the warranty? It doesn't cover this at all!!! And just to be clear, this is the first online review I've ever written. I think all the good reviews here might reflect that this mattress is awesome at first. It only starts to suck closer to the one year mark. And I don't think most people would go back and write a review that far down the line. But I did, so maybe I can prevent someone else from experiencing what I experienced. I mean how much does it suck that I buy a mattress, use it for less than a year, and now I need a new one? And theres nothing I can do about it! Ouch!
I recently became interested in memory foam mattresses after staying at a hotel that featured the name brand mattress we are all familiar with. Upon check-in I didnt know this, we just went to bed that first night and in the morning I started tearing apart the bed to find out what it was and why, after YEARS of morning back pain, did my back not hurt! We stayed at this hotel for five days so I thought that was a pretty good length of time to experience it and enough to make a decision to buy. After all, one usually lies on a bed in a mattress store for about 5 minutes and then makes the decision to spend a fortune. This makes a lot more sense and if youve never experience memory foam and want to try it, look for a hotel that features them and give it a test drive. Then come here and buy this one! Upon my return home I shopped for the name brand and found them to be exorbitantly expensive! Because I am somewhat frugal (most call me cheap but frugal fits better) I decided to do some research online and see what I could find. Since Im not allowed to specifically state a URL here Ill just suggest that if you really want to research then look for a site that is out there that is all about beds and sleep. It contains reviews by regular people and is there to help you make your decision. In that site I found that this mattress actually exceeded the big name brand in its overall score. Plus the difference in cost was so great that it seemed like a reasonable risk, especially based upon all of the other positive feedback I read on this site. Also, being an aerospace engineer I am familiar with the materials that make up this bed and since theyre all basically the same, why spend so much more!? So, to skip over all the fluff two words BUY IT! You will not regret it.
