It was time to replace our old king size mattress and box springs. Not wanting anything monstrously thick and costing over a thousand dollars we decided to try these twin mattresses pushed together on a platform bed instead. We wanted very firm mattresses and purchased these in June 2010 based on the reviews here. We (adults) have been sleeping very well on them for ten months now and are happy with how they are holding up. Our only disappointment was the same as what another reviewer observed: "The description of the reversible 6" bunk bed mattress clearly states that it is made of natural soy-based foam, however the tag on the mattress states urethane foam." Apart from that it's a great value at a great price.

Mattresses are perfect for a childs bunk bed, snug fit, although they do need support underneath them so that there is no sagging. Great buy.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good Quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was perfect
The mattress work for kids.. not great for adults a bit too smushy. However for 2 toddlers and probably teens they work fine for the price. I think when I get their actual bed frames and trundles I will make these the trundle mattresses and buy a higher quality mattress for the main beds.

The reviews that I read led me to purchase these mattresses for the bunk beds. Our grandchildren use the beds, but on occasion I have slept on the mattress. I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable it was. This was a great value purchase. Do not hestitate to purchase.

Extremely pleased with the mattresses. Got 2 of these for our young kids. Before I got them, I was worried the foam would collapse too much if I (an adult) laid down on it, but they are nice and supportive for my husband and I as well (though we are less than 150 lbs). I would describe them as fairly firm, which I like. The kids love them. I confess, I bought these because I wanted mattresses that would discourage jumping, as our kids share a room and were always jumping on the beds and colliding, getting bumps, etc. Well, foam isn't nearly as bouncy as a traditional mattress, so there is less jumping, which is a great extra benefit if these are for younger kids. The cover is a very nice touch, which makes it feel higher quality. The cover is soft - not at all plasticy or noisy. We of course purchased mattress pads as well to protect the mattresses. Twin mattress pads and sheet sets work fine, though the sheet set isn't totally tight since these are pretty shallow mattresses. That doesn't bother me, as I expected sheets to fit looser. A great buy - highly recommend if you don't need a "cushy" mattress, or you wish to add your own topper for extra "cush" that you sink into.
I generally get all my bedding needs from Overstock because you can not beat the price, quality and hassle free experience. Once again, the same can be said for these mattresses for my boys bunk bed. Fast (and free) shipping too. LOVE OVERSTOCK!!
Mattresses arrived on time in good condition. You open the box, pull out the rolled up mattress, carefully cut the plastic wrap and stand back. It unrolls like a life raft inflating. The cover over the foam is very nice and seems durable. As others have mentioned -- these are firm mattresses. We plan to use them for some twin beds we set up when the house is overrun with grandchildren for holidays (we have five--all under seven). I don't think the kids will mind the firmness (when they are tired they will sleep anywhere). Plus - it keeps them from being too bouncy (too many monkeys jumping on the bed).
These mattresses are VERY firm!! If you are thinking "memory" foam, these are NOT the mattresses for you. We had to purchase feather/down mattress toppers in order for them to be somewhat comfortable. My boys, ages 8 & 4 have complained that these are "Too Hard!" for them. Once they are opened you cannot return them. They are very durable, but VERY firm. Buyer beware: these are NOT memory foam mattresses. I was under the assumption that "foam" meant "memory foam", that is not the case here, you will not "sink" in to these mattresses.
Before buying this twin mattress, I went around to a few bed stores and found that the mattress I wanted was not good for bunk beds, a little too tall. I got this mattress thinking it would do for the mean time, but this is it. It fits wright, and feels good. It is firm and not too heavy, it is just good. I put a light comfort cover over it just as an extra. Had it for two months and have zero complain from the kids. And you can't beat the price.
We like it. Fits very well in the bunk bed. At first I couldn't decide whether to buy it or not because some reviews say it is hard as a rock. Well I am very pleased with my purchase. The mattress is firm, but in a comfortable way. Besides, you cannot beat the price for a quality like this.
We purchased these mattresses for our children's bunkbed and they work great. They are quite firm, fit perfectly and will last many years for sure. There was a slight "new" odor at first, but eventually went away - it would probably help to let them set out for a few days with some air movement (fan) before using them.
