I bought a full size and a twin size mattress. I have had no problems with the chemical odor on the twin since initially airing out the mattress but after airing out the full size mattress a couple of times it is still has a mild odor. Hopefully this third time will do the trick. It is, however, extremely comfortable my child loves sleeping on it. I might get one for myself!
I purchased this mattress for a child's bed. My child loved it and raved about the comfort level. My teenager, who is not a memory foam fan, decided to try it as well and promptly asked me for one. I tried it and loved it also. I found this to be a firm and supportive mattress, but it does not put pressure on any of my pressure points; rather it actually relieved quite a lot of my arthritis pain that I normally awaken with with regular mattresses. As for the mattress arriving in a box, there is nothing to fear as it will in fact "inflate" to a proper mattress, likely within a day. There was a new mattress odor at first, but it does fade away and will no longer be detectable (this is a common complaint but it is NOT a permanent odor). There is one consideration to keep in mind when purchasing sheets: this is a thick mattress and the corners are square, not curved like regular mattresses. This makes it necessary to purchase very deep pocket sheets. I would highly recommend this mattress to anyone who is looking for a firm support mattress without the hardness of a regular firm mattress. Your joints will feel wonderful after a few nights sleep on this mattress as you will not feel the usual stiffness that occurs when sleeping on a traditional mattress.
I was an early adopter of memory foam mattresses and have purchased over ten of them. While all will outgas in the beginning, this one still has an odor three full months after purchase. I can't decide if the foam is still outgassing or if the manufacturer tried to ameliorate the smell and added a deodoriser that is lingering. The mattress is in a spare bedroom, generally closed off, so since the odor is slightly sweet it isn't enough to make me get rid of the mattress. Note: I am sensitive to odors as a result of chemical exposure during my working career, but three months is excessive. Also, my grandson (teenage jock) wanted me to purchase a firm mattress and this one is very firm. The rest of the grandchildren think it is too firm. "Hard as a rock" is the phrase bandied about. That said, I like the fact that the mattress is well shaped and slightly longer than other twins I have purchased. It fits a poster bed well and expanded to full size quickly. Sheets aren't sloppy on it and I think it will hold up for many years. It isn't a hot mattress which can be an issue with some of the softer ones. The mattress has a substantial cover on it which must be seated quickly when it is expanding or it is hard to get it to fit perfectly (without wrinkles).
I bought this mattress for my 94 year old Dad. He had bought a very expensive mattress and it did not serve his old bones well. He raves about how comfortable this mattress is, even thou at first he was skeptical about a memory foam mattress. It was worth every penny, and the removable cover is a real plus!
From reading the reviews, I knew the mattress was going to come in a box smaller than what you would expect so I wasn't concerned when the box arrived. Once unpacked, the mattress grew in size within 1-2 days and the smell (not strong) was gone within a week. The mattress is a bit firm but with each use the mattress is becoming less firm (comfortable). I definitely recommend the purchased of this mattress and would buy another one. A really good value.
I bought this bed a year ago, and although it's quite a firm mattress, the padding bunches up and makes lumps, and when I try to smooth them out it pops up again. You can't flip it over because the quilting is only one sided. It's a pretty good mattress for the price, but I keep stubbing my toe on that stupid platform bed frame I bought, very clumsy piece of furniture.
I assumed this would be a memory foam mattress similar to Temperpedic kinds, but there is no comparison. For the price I paid, the bed was able to provide a good night's sleep, but It could have been better. The bed only depresses about 1-2 inches which in reality makes the 10-inch, or even the bottom portion useless. I would recommend this bed if it wasn't as hard or as thick.
I have been very pleased with this bed! I would highly recomend it for sleep quality and a very good price. My one side of the family all have bad insomnia where they only get 3-4 hours a night. I started to follow suit last year. When i first opened the box and unwrapped it I let it expand outside for several hours before bringing it inside, and it was inside 2 days before i used it. I never noticed any oder or smell at all like you are informed of that possibility and some have complained about. The first night it felt hard and uncomfortable, but after 2 nights it softened and i have been sleeping through just about every night since! After a week that "hardness" was gone. After 1.5 months i was continuing to sleep well, but it doesn't have a "cozy" feel to it since you don't sink in very much at all (it has good support) but then again, i am under 115 lbs. A heavier person may enjoy it just as it is. I put on a memory foam topper that i already had which gives it that cozy feel and i still sleep great. It does keep you warm. I had to adjust what i wore at night so i wouldn't get too warm. I have been using essential oils Peace and Calming, Valor, and Cedarwood to help me sleep, and have also changed my diet which has made a difference, but i believe this bed has been a big part in helping me say "goodnight" to insomnia :)
Wow, Overstock continues to impress me with their service; I've purchased several items here and have never been disappointed. This came so quickly and like everyone said, it came in a small box but puffed out instantaneously. The chemical odor went away after a week or so. The mattress is very firm, so if you want something a little more cushy, this is not your bed. But over all, the quality is really excellent. And I like the quilted top feature.
