I hate to rain on the review parade this mattress had going for it but my husband and I cannot come into agreement with all the raves about this product. We've had it since Dec, 2008 and were prepared to go through the "adjustment" period to a firm mattress. Having a memory foam mattress in the past, it was to be expected.But sadly, this was not the case. After a couple weeks, I began to notice that my side was "tilting" or sloping not towards the middle, but towards the side, like a feeling as if I could roll off the bed. It became apparent that the best support the mattress had was exactly in the middle of the bed and if you weren't there, you would lay uneven, sloping at an angle to the edge of the bed. Imagine an inverted "V". Opposite the "hole in the middle" problem.And then came more sinking and the shoulder and upper back/neck pain. This bed actaully causes me to toss and turn and refluff my pillow in order to find some relief from the uneven support it provides. We wish so bad that we could send it back. This is an uneven bed!!!And you don't want to know what my husband is saying about it. I just had come back onto the website and warn you.
This is a great mattress for my platform bed. I got the king size and I am very pleased with it. The mattress can feel fairly stiff when you first get on it but as it warms and you sink, it is extremely comfortable. I can see how a very light person might find it too hard...I'm heavy, he's heavier (I'd say we're close to 450 pounds combined) and it is still plenty of cushioning for us both. It CAN be a little difficult to get out of the impressions you make after a few hours so I wouldn't recommend it for the elderly or weak or anyone with problems getting out of a standard coil mattress. It is not sensibly hot (though I haven't gone through a summer yet) which I was worried about and regular king sheets seem to fit it just fine. Couldn't ask for more considering the price. As others have mentioned, there is a smell lingering for a couple of days but it wasn't anything that kept me from using it as soon as it fluffed up. Oh, And I sleep like a rock these days and my back hasn't hurt at all since we got it. Awesome.
I really like this mattress, but wish it was a bit softer. I put a gel memory foam topper on it and that made it perfect. I do think it is cooler than the first memory foam mattress I owned, (This is without the topper) Once you try memory foam, you will never want a conventional mattress again!!!
we have this matress for over a year now and I wanted to throw it away for about 2 months now, but my husband kept giving it another chance.. we switched it over on all sides and he finally realized he can't sleep on it anymore. We have a whole between the two of us, everything hurts when i wake up in the morning, so don't buy this...
I do not recommend this product to anyone. At first, the bed feels nice because it is soft, but then after your body adjusts, you realize that there is no supportive material in the bed. Your back quickly begins to hurt. I have had this mattress for only a year and we just purchased a replacement. Both my husband and I have developed back pains from this mattress and the only reason we waited this long was because we had to save up more money to buy a better quality mattress.You will toss and turn on this mattress because once you cause an indentation and then turn over, the mattress does not reconform to your body for a very long time so your body is at very weird angles. I am really disappointed in this purchase!!!!! If you want to avoid sleepless nights and back pains that last all day, DO NOT buy this mattress.

At first I did not like this mattress but my husband loved it. It was very hard and uncomfortable for me to even sit on. However, I am now very glad that we bought this bed. I am now getting the best sleep I have in many years. The only thing is that I as others have noticed is that if two people are on the mattress the very center of the mattress seems to be significantly higher than the sides are. It took less than 12 hours for it to expand and be ready to sleep on. The ad talks about an order and yes it was there for about a week after we got it; the odor did leave and has no smell now. I have recommended this mattress to our friends who are not happy with their mattresses and have back problems.
I can't say enough good things about this bed. This was by far one of the best purchases I have ever made. The quality and price of this bed is FANTASTIC. Memory foam is the only way to sleep in my opinion and most memory foam mattresses are so costly, this unit is inexpensive in cost but not lacking in quality or comfort. You will sleep so soundly on this bed, just like a baby. I love it to pieces and would buy another in a hot second. Don't hesitate, this bed is Awesome!!

Great Bed for the price, the only odd thing is that the mattress is not "flat" but rather has ridges that I assume help with air flow and therefore help you keep cooler. You don't really notice them while you are laying down, but its not really explained in the information.
I bought my last foam mattress from Overstock and I loved it. I bought the cool sensations this time because we are in Florida now and thought it would be cool. I liked it at first, but after only a few months, it doesn't seem to have any support left. We sink into this mattress like we are in a big sink-hole. Not very comfortable at all. I wish I could do this over again and buy another. I would not recommend this mattress.
We began doing a great deal of research on what type of mattress to purchase as it's not an inexpensive item and we've had a couple of bad experiences, either in that the mattress didn't last or in the case of an early latex mattress, it was just bad from the beginning so we wanted to get this right, find what best suited our needs and would be within our budget. Everyone we know who has a memory foam bed has said how great they are so we focused our research on that, determining high/low density, lbs per, etc. and deteremined what we needed. We never in a million years thought we would buy a bed online, sight unseen but this bed met our requirements AND the price was so good we figured that if it didn't work out, we weren't out all that much for the experience. First, the shipping was SUPER FAST, we ordered Saturday afternoon and it arrived the following Thursday, rolled up on our porch. After work, we took it upstairs, put our new bed together (we just got another dog and decided to get a king size bed to give us all more room) and then cut open the mattress and rolled it out. It began to expand immediately and before the evening was over, it was almost at full expansion. We slept in the spare bedroom that night and left the window open to help with the off-gassing. The odor wasn't unpleasant, and while you could still get a faint whiff of it a couple of weeks later, it wasn't ever overwhelming and I don't consider it to be a problem. If you haven't slept on a memory foam mattress before, I guess it did take about a week to get used to, as when you move, the memory foam takes just a few minutes to expand from your old position and compress to your new position but I don't even notice it anymore. What I love best about it is I don't need a pillow between my knees when I lie on my side; the support from the memory foam is wonderful. We LOVE the mattress. It is perfect and immediately our morning back pain was gone. There is no question it does sleep a little warmer than a spring mattress and I thought this would bother my husband more then myself but even he said it's not a problem. I would recommend Overstock and this particular mattress to anyone looking for a mattress, we absolutely LOVE it and couldn't be more happy with our purchase.
Received this bed very quickly and opened it. It took a full 3 days to get to full size. This bed is very firm which i like. It is firm but you sink into it very nicely. Overall im pleased and cant imagine that the ones that are 4 times this price can be much better at all.
My husband and I were skeptical to order a mattress online especially one we have not seen or felt. I am so glad we took the risk because it paid off! Such a great deal and super comfortable. The only negative thing is the smell. We have had it for a month now and the plastic smell is still there. Not bad, but we still notice it. 2nd thing is the the top of the mattress is not flat it has ridges in it but nothing a memory foam topper can't fix. Those 2 reasons are the only reasons I gave it a 4 star instead of 5.
Went from mattress/boxspring to this memory foam. It's a very firm bed but we both like a firm bed. It took several days to air out the odor and to reach its full size but it was worth the wait. It does not retain body heat which I was concerned about because I'm a 'hot sleeper'. My husband LOVES this mattress!!! I was hoping it might quiet his snoring but no such luck. :) All-in-all I am very pleased with this purchase.
I recently had shoulder surgery and my husband has a bad back. This mattress is AWESOME! Great value and most comfortable sleep we've had in a really long time. Extra bonus is that we put it on top of our regular box springs and mattress, making it super high. We haven't had any of our dogs in bed with us either - they can't get up! I have already recommended this mattress to several friends!
