wonderful mattress, extremely comfortable. was surprised in how it came. it was rolled up in a tall box and I was afraid I ordered the wrong product but took it out unwrapped it and immediately it was the size of the mattress. I would buy more of this product for other beds in the house .
I have ordered a foam mattress before and loved it , it was time for a new one. smell: I have a huge reaction to any type of perfume, candles plastics and I had zero issues so please do not worry. vaccume pack: all perfect ! Firmness: OMG they were correct its so bad and like a brick it has created so much back pain, remeber i replaced my old one i had for several years from overstock so I knwo what memory foam is like. This should be extra extra firm and now that I pay attention to others reviewing if you have to spend more money as i did and buy an additional topper there is something wrong!!!! I wish i realized that before my purchase. If you love extra extra firm it be great for you , i like firm but so sorry to say this has to be listed incorrectly
I suffer from lower back pain due to an injury, and it was impossible to get a comfortable night's sleep on my inter-spring mattress. I reviewed and tested numerous mattress styles for months and could not find one I liked. Finally, some friends invited me to spend the night on a firm, foam mattress in their guest room. It was the best night's sleep I could remember. Then, I found this mattress and decided to give it a try. Best decision I've ever made. Just the right amount of firmness! Since buying this mattress, I've been able to completely stop taking pain meds. Now, I'm going to buy one for my father and his bad back.
The mattress itself is comfortable however, it smells like it sat in a dank dark moist warehouse cave and never saw the light of day for over a decade. I initially thought the smell was from the packaging and it would disappear after a bit- I was wrong. I have had the mattress for about three weeks now and I can still smell it, even through the dozens of dryer sheets I carefully placed under my fitted sheet.
I'm quite happy with this mattress: it is solid, has a lovely cover, and was fairly easy to manage taking it from the box to the bed (I'm 5'2" and quite petite). The mattress is very firm, though, and I have already purchased a 2.5" gel mattress topper that has made everything perfect. The other benefit is to watch this mattress unfold; it is very entertaining and reminds me of a flower blooming in fast motion! To date I have bought 8 mattress toppers and this is my second mattress purchased from Overstock; I keep going back because I like the products, prices, and free home delivery!
This mattress had me absolutely deceived. It is far from "medium firm" This bed is hard as a brick. I am now looking for some sort of pad to help soften it a bit. I really don't want to bite the bullet and get a new mattress, but I may have to. If you like extremely firm mattresses, then this is it. Otherwise I would look elsewhere.
It took 6 days to ship. Bought it when it was on sale for $145 which was a great price. This foam mattress comes covered with a white cloth like a normal mattress (smaller foam mattresses do not have a cover). I am using it on a double futon bed and the mattress is the exact same size, which is perfect. On my other foam mattress (3") I kind of sink into it, on this one it maintains the firmness and you barely sink. This is perfect to make another bed available for family. I would buy again and recommend it to others. It came sealed in plastic in a 5 foot box. As soon as I took it out of the box it started decompressing back into its original size. The box weighed about 35 lbs.
I NEVER KNEW I had paid good money for a new mattress last year, needless to say I was waking up all different times of the night with lower back pain. Per. the salesman in which I purchased the new mattress said this bed will change your life, he was right (for the worst). I thought what could I do to help the situation. I had spent big bucks already soooo, I checked different sites for a (reasonable) foam topper, well to make a long story short Overstock .com was the ticket. I LOVE it. I had forgotten how good you feel after having a good night sleep. No more back pain really. Even the shipping process was excellent, It arrived on time just as the customer service rep. said it would. WOW Thank,s Overstock.com *****
