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!
I have wanted a foam mattress for years, but as long as I had a regular mattress on the bed, I decided it was not a necessity. Years ago after sleeping on one on a train, I was very refreshed. Now with this one from Overstock.com, I find I am refreshed again. I just put a piece of plywood across the frame and have the foam mattress on it. And the price was fantastic. It's not a memory foam, but who needs a bed to remember where I am laying? I have gotten to the point where I look everything up on Overstock.com before I buy anything. I find I usually get a much better deal for good quality. Thank you, Overstock.com for being here!!
I bought this mattress for the trundle of a new daybed we've set up, having turned our guest room into a nursery. Both of my parents prefer a firm mattress, so I was looking for something that would work for them in addition to fitting the thickness constraints of the trundle. Based on other reviews, I was a little concerned that the "firm" might be too much so, but went ahead anyway. Thus far, I've been very pleased. We haven't had an overnight sleeper on it yet, so I can't give those impressions, but just from laying on it myself, it is just what I was hoping for, so I guess you could say the firmness rating is "true to size." :) The mattress also plumped up into shape quickly and we didn't have any issues with foam smell. I would absolutely purchase it again.
I purchased this for my 10-year-old son. What a great mattress. Don't let the packaging fool you. After being out of the packaging for only a few hours, it had expanded and was ready to go on the bed. It is very comfortable. Would highly recommend.
This mattress exceeded my expectations. I bought it for my son for his 12th birthday. He absolutely loves it. He said he slept great and didnt toss and turn like he did on his old mattress. I layed down on it last night and couldnt get up. It's like heaven! The quality is superb. The outer cover is very soft and high quality. I would definately recommed this mattress!!!
my sleeping time is cut in half because of this matress. i get sooo rested in so little time and my matress was ready out of the box in 30 MINUTES!!! i slept on it my first night and it was amazing. it made me want to go and buy new blankets pillows and sheets for it, which i did. i ordered the medium and its wonderful. it contours to every part of my body and it reaches even the middle of my curved spine. its not too hot to sleep on but not too cold and it doesnt leave you groggy when you wake up. i hop out of bed no without a single pain in any part of my body. mine is really a little taller than nine inches. it ended up being a little over ten. i suggest this one over the others on the site. it has a nice slip cover that zips and it is inexpensive. great first buy. i was unsure so i got the medium and its great.
This mattress was a cheap and effective solution for my 4 year old, who aged out of her toddler bed. She complained of discomfort and would end up in my bed by morning. Since replacing her toddler bed with this mattress she has stayed in her bed all night. We selected the medium firmness, and it's perfect for her and also very comfortable for me. I am very glad I made this purchase.
We purchased this mattress as a topper for a daybed. We read all of the reviews and the warnings that came with the bed, esp the one about it could smell for a couple of days. It did not smell at all, which the person using it would have detected immediately. So that was a surprise as well as watching it grow. We couldn't believe such a small package contained a mattress. We are more than happy with this purchase. I am looking for a full size one now to replace my current mattress.
