The mattress is exactly as described. It arrived in perfect condition. No problem unpacking. The mattress cover fits perfectly. I ordered medium firm, and that's what it is. I might have liked firm and would choose firm if ordering another. This is a good value, and I did not have to go through the sales pitch always given in stores. I rate this 5 stars.
After several advice from friends and family, I began researching memory foam mattresses. My old mattress, although still new, was beginning to affect my back. I was waking up to aches and pains, especially in the lower back area. I was sleeping on a platform bed with only one spring type mattress. I noticed that my mattress was beginning to sink in towards the middle part, never returning back to it's original shape. Everyday, my co-workers would ask me what is wrong and they kept pushing me to purchase a memory foam mattress and that I will be quite happy when I get one. Well, after constantly going back and forth, I decided on purchasing one especially because I could not take the pain caused by my mattress. I saw this item on this site and for the price, I decided on purchasing it. About a week later, my mattress arrived. It came wrapped up really tight. I looked at it and thought that I was probably given the wrong item because it was so thin. Once I unpacked it as per the instructions, I laid the mattress flat so that the shape could conform back to it's original size. One hour later, the mattress all of a sudden sprung up in size. Although the ad says 9 inches thick, it's actually 10 inches, so not bad for the price. I finally went to sleep on it and wow! What a nice feeling. I felt like I sleeping on a marshmallow. I purchased the medium firm which is excellent. I woke up the next day feeling so wonderful. Several days of use reminds me that I invested my money wisely when I purchased this mattress. I have been waking up feeling more refreshed, no pain and well rested. Of course, not everyone is the same but for me, it did a wonderful job and I highly recommend this mattress especially the medium firm. By the way, there was no smell to it as I read on other comments and it actually returned to its original shape faster than advertised.
I bought this mattress for a daybed. It arrived in record time and came in a very compact package. I did notice the smell but it was gone after a day or two. I ordered the medium memory foam mattress and it is perfect. I sleep on a Tempurpedic and for the record there is a noticeable difference in quality but for the price you just can't beat this deal. If you want an affordable guest mattress at a great price, I would recommend this for sure.
I bought this bed for my 3yr old, she loves it and sleep pretty good through the night now. The only thing is the smell is horrible, I aired the bed out for 48hrs before placing it on her captian bed but the smell was still there. Otherwise I would recommend it to a friend or family member.
We got this for our son who is in college. I was concerned about whether to order a firm or medium because he weighs 230 and is 6'2". I called the manufacturer and they assured me a medium would be perfect since he likes to sleep on his side. They told me 250 lbs is an average weight nowadays. Our son told us he has not slept this good in years. He just put it on top of his futon bed and it worked perfect! Fast shipping also! Thanks Overstock.com! You have a new customer!
I never bought a mattress online like this so I was a little skeptical what I was getting into..but went by the positive ratings and decided to purchase. Was not sure whether to select soft,med or firm..kinda hard without the benefit of testing it first...so I chose the medium and hoped it would be ok. Upon receiving I was mortified looking at the way it was packed...they actually did an awesome job but it was rolled up and all the air in the bag taken out so it was VERY compressed ..so It didn't look like much. Upon opening it just continued to puff up to full thickness...about an hour later it looked wonderful! Im glad I chose medium..its firm enough...thanks overstock.com for the great mattress!
I was skeptical of the price at first, but the reviews do not lie. It is an excellent mattress. It came before the date it was supposed to come. Very comfortable, and I am a relatively large person. Do not regret buying this. Medium is the perfect firmness.
We bought the twin size for our son who has a platform bed with the original mattress that came with the bed--a cheap, coil mattress. We have an expensive foam mattress on our bed and I'd been wanting one for our son, but didn't want to spend a fortune on his mattress. We purchased the medium firmness in a twin size, and it came rolled up, and it wasn't too heavy for me to move by myself. It comes in a soft cottony cover, but I put a mattress cover on it as well to protect it. It fit the bed perfectly. He is about 100 lbs, and he's been sleeping very well on it. It's very comfortable. It's a bit softer than I would expect for a 'medium' firmness, but it's not too soft. It feels soft if you press your hands on it, but when you lie down it's extremely supportive. You don't 'sink' into it at all. The best thing in my opinion is that it keeps the kids from jumping on the bed because it doesn't bounce back like a coil mattress! We are extremely happy with this mattress.
We bought this mattress for my son to move out of his crib to a big-boy bed. It's EXTREMELY comfortable! The only reason we looked into this mattress is because a friend told me she paid $190 for a twin mattress at the local mattress store. Why get a regular mattress for almost $200 if you can get a memory foam one that is much less costly and more comfortable? Also, I recommend the "soft" for children. The bed is not mushy, even if you get a soft one. The only thing I would recommend is to purchase a waterproof mattress pad if you are using this mattress for a small child because memory foam can soak up liquids like a sponge. Protect your investment!
