Considering this mattress is supposed to have 3 layers of foam inside, I would have expect more support. I am 115 lb adult woman, and I can feel the bars of my futon frame underneath my butt and in my back. It's so uncomfortable! I'm embarrassed to have friends come over, because this is not worth sitting on, not to mention sleeping on. Yeah price is great, but it's not worth it. To return it, I loose $40 in shipping ASSUMING I can even figure out a way to ship it back- to get it back in the box I'd need to BUY a large enough air bag and vacuum the air out- which is another $30. So whats the point. I pay for a crappy futon, and can't even get my money back. Do yourself a favor and buy one from a STORE, not online. That way, if it sucks, you can at least return it with less hassle, and get more money back.

I don't have much new to say about the futon mattress. It arrived earlier than expected, and it was vacuum-packed into a box. Once out, the mattress was very flat and smelled kind of funny. After 48 hours, it puffed up pretty good, but not to the full 8" (and it never has). I sleep well on it at night, but it is still very much a futon mattress, so don't expect it to be more (like I did). The sage color is nice, and the price is great, especially with the $2.95 or free shipping.

well, i would have given this more stars for an overall rating, but i purchased this a several months ago, and when i finally purchased a frame to put it in, it was 2 inches smaller in thickness than it claimed to be. i had no way of shipping it back, and i was very disappointed that i paid for an 8 inch mattress and only got a 6 inch one. i had seen others were in the same boat about the time that i purchased mine but never figured that it would happen...but it did. it was supposed to 'expand' to 8 inches, but it is definitely a 6 inch mattress--i measured it to be sure. i hope that this issue has since been resolved for the rest of you looking at this item. beyond the wrong thickness of the mattress, it otherwise serves its purpose.
We bought this mattress to go with a futon frame that our daughter was taking to college. We did not want to spend a lot of money, but we didn't want to waste money on something cheap. This mattress fit our needs and our daughter's needs perfectly. It meets the strict safety fire codes of the dorm - very important! She and her 2 roommates are very happy and comfortable with the mattress.
I first purchased a 10" mattress, but made a mistake on the form with the size I needed(my fault). Then I realized that an 8" model would be just as good for my needs as it is for occasional use. I received the new 8' model and it fits my needs just right. It is good quality for the price and is made very well.
This is perfect for my daughter's room...the only complaint I have is that the smell is still lingering after a week of it being unpackaged!! It's a strong fabric smelll...not bad, just makes you wonder when it's going to go away! It seems to be a very good quality and the thickness is awesome (maybe a bit too thick as the frame we have doesn't keep it from slipping when the frame is set up as a couch, but that's not the fault of the mattress). It is very comfortable, was packaged wonderfully, and arrived in usual O.co FAST fashion!
I bought this as a replacement for an older mattress. The color is good and it is respectable quality for the price. The thickness description is a little on the wishfull thinking side. For and a half to five inches would be more accurate. Still, for the money this a good buy.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not bad for the price
Not sure what to select on the "Comfort" scale - the mattress was (as Goldilocks would say) "just right"!!! We've had family members sleep on it & all have said it feels very comfortable! And, believe me, they would tell us if it was NOT comfortable!!!!
After reading some of these reviews I really did not know what to expect.... I have to say that I am really happy with the purchase! It is a nice thick mattress that fit perfectly on my sons bed ( it is a replacement for the old one- you can definitely tell the difference!). Love it! The only downside is the smell, it really needs to be aired out before use... I just hope it is not hazardous to your health (chemicals in the dye)...
This is a very nice mattress. It's soft and comfortable and since there is no one using it at the moment my cat happily lounges on it all day. You definitely want to buy a cover for it. I ordered the burgundy which looked purple and the fabric was shiny and unattractive.
After researching locally and online for quality and value, with the reviews all the futon mattresses.....this one had the most positive. I did purchase it, was impressed by the quick shipping and once received it was as previously commented thinner than described. If you are an average sized adult, you will feel the bars underneath. However, it is for my daughter and she is not complaining! We have a contemporary black bunk bed with futon on bottom that just works for kids. The futon mattress is cheap and serves its purpose, but is not a quality product by any means.
I would not sleep on this mattress as it is way too thin. The 8" description should be more like 4" when unfolded. When I laid down on it, I could still feel the supports from my wooden mattress frame. It will suffice for an emergency guest bed, but for more frequent use I would not recommend.
