Yes the matress is 8 inches thick, BUT ONLY THE TOP TWO INCHES ARE memory foam!!The rest is regular stiff foam.It is pretty comfortable to me, my boyfriend hates it.Does not come with a box spring, so you get what you pay for.No refunds
We bought the full mattress for our daughter who felt that she needed to graduate from a twin bed. She was thrilled with it the first night she slept on it and has been happy since. The mattress expanded quickly and there were virtually no signs of off gassing. We were quite pleased with this.So far she is thrilled with her new bed as we are!
I highly recommend this mattress. I bought this mattress for my 64 year old brother whose neck, arm and shoulder was hurting very badly recently. He told me he thought he needed a new mattress. I told him that he probably needs a foam mattress considering his spring mattress was quite old. When he received it he said the smell went away the second day and he had arm, neck and shoulder soreness relief immediately after the first couple of nights sleep. I spoke with him three weeks later and he said he loves the mattress. I highly recommend this mattress.
It was delivered within 2 days of ordering on overstock, it was amazing. The assembly was simple and it didn't come with a strong odor of memory foam as expected. We bought this for a 2nd guest bedroom so we wanted something not too expensive but yet somewhat comfortable. The bed is definitely comfortable, not too firm and not too soft, it's just right. However, you can feel your partner move in the middle of night but it's not a temperpedic but it's comfortable enough.
I had not realized how bad my other mattresses had been until I bought this one. I sleep so deeply and so comfortably on it that little can wake me until I am ready to rise. The mattress is amazing--not too soft, because I like firm beds, but not so firm that I risk injury from turning over (as has been the case with some other mattresses I have had). I want to sleep all day (and that is saying a lot because normally, I cannot wait to rise and be about my business).
This was a nice matress for the money. I will say that it feels a little hard for me so I added a foam matress topper, now I sleep with great comfort. I have a shoulder problem and when I sleep on a regular matress I must stay off that side. With this new matress I do not worry about rolling on to my side. Sleep is great.
I purchased this for my daughter. When we first opened the packaging - the mattress had that nasty odor, but I was smart enough to order and open it up right before we went on vacation for a week. When we returned the odor was almost gone and she was not bothered by it at all. For the price it is a very comfortable mattress and she is loving it. I does need time to air out to get rid of that smell - other than that - a great buy
When I visited various mattress stores, I couldn't find anything close to this price for a memory foam mattress and decided to give it a try. I've been sleeping on it for several weeks and have been quite pleased. The only comment I would add is that memory foam tends to retain heat, which makes the side I sleep on a bit warm during the night...I'm going to pick up a basic $40 cotton mattress pad to put on top and determine if that better distributes the warmth. Overall, I've been very pleased with this purchase.
Well at least the sale price I got it as was a great value. Exactly as promised and delivered in perfect shape on time. The firmness is what I like which is fairly firm so I wont even get a topper for it. I am very happy that I made this selection and in going with Serta I am confident it will last for several years with proper care.
This was a fantastic buy! This was a great mattress and have been bragging to my friends about what a great buy it was. High quality mattress. We have a Temperpedic and spend a fortune - I wish I knew about Overstock before that purchase!
First of all let me explain that the price was FANTASTIC! I was looking at "name brands" for memory foam mattresses and they were over $3,000! How ridiculous! This was a great product for the price. Second, I purchased the item on the 14th and receieved it the 17th! Really fast shipping. Thrid, it's soooo nice and comfy! Even my pomeranian has trouble getting out of bed because he loves it so much. I would definitely recommend this mattress to anyone! Especially if you have bone and joint issues, as I do, feels really nice.
I recently slept on a memory foam mattress in a luxury hotel and loved it so I've been looking for one for a while. I chose the Serta because of the consistently high reviews -- and those reviews are totally justified.Once I got the mattress out of the box and started cutting away the layers of protective wrapping, it immediately started expanding. It reached its full size within minutes. My mattress was actually about an inch and a half wider than the box, but it's better to be too big than too small. Just be prepared for some possible sizing irregularities, which is mentioned in the item description.Since I'm sensitive to strong smells, I was concerned about a lengthy period of off-gassing. There was a slight odor (not too bad) for about 48 hours. You notice it most when you first sit or lie on the mattress since that seems to push the gas out of the foam.The Serta was initially extremely firm with almost no give, but it softened up after a day or two. I'd still rate it as pretty high on the firmness scale, so if you're looking for a squishy mattress, the Serta's not your best choice. However, it's extremely comfortable -- I overslept the first night I used it. And it was an excellent value since local mattress stores sold similar products for more than twice as much.Overall, I was very pleased with my purchase despite being sent the wrong item initially. Make sure you check the labels on the box before you open it. When I got the first box, I thought the brand on the label might have been a subsidiary of Serta but I checked and discovered it was a mistake. Overstock resolved the problem quickly and exchanged the boxes within a day.
