I ordered the King size medium/10" thickness mattress. It was delivered in a 4x2' roll, COMPLETELY vacuum compressed. I was shocked and wasn't sure how it would decompress. No worries, it did just fine within minutes, I DO recommend having two people unpack and set it, it can be a handful to maneuver since it's decompressing as you're unwrapping it. The first few weeks it's quite stiff and almost uncomfortable, not to worry it is just breaking in (as I told myself night after night). It's unbelievably plush and comfortable now, worth double what I paid I honestly think. Conventional wisdom says not to use it for 24hrs for both the smell (use a fan/open a few windows) and to let it fully "inflate." I couldn't wait that long and had no problems. The smell was a non-issue to me, and it had "inflated" completely within minutes of unpacking. Buy with confidence.
We ordered the 10" medium firm king mattress. It arrived quickly in its vacuum sealed duffle bag. It was heavy, but easy to drag up the stairs. When unpacked, it expanded to its full shape almost instantly. It did have a strong chemical odor, but it was not so overpowering that we could not sleep on it the first night. The medium firmness was just right for us; cushy yet firm. It is very comfortable, and it eliminates the bed motion when the other person rolls over. The gel keeps the mattress cooler, but not cool. It is perfect now, but has yet to be tested in hot weather. The chemical odor has been slow to dissipate. We have removed the sheets every morning to let it air during the day, then remade the bed every night. After 3 weeks the odor is finally gone. Overall, we are very satisfied with this mattress.
I had looked at these in the stores, and they wanted SOOO much more money, I really could not afford it. So, I was skeptical when I saw this. I got the matress in the time stated, and was even more skeptical when I saw it was flattened in one of those vacumn bags. I opened it, and I have to tell you, this is the best matress! I have had so fewer aches when I get up, I am just delighted. I have only had it about a month now, so we will see how it holds up, but even if it only lasts me a year, it is worth it! It is comfotable, nice looking, and I wish I had done this years ago. I got the medium firmness level. This is soft when you first lay down, but very very supportive. I had wanted firm because of lower back issues, but glad I did not get firm now.
This is the second foam mattress we have purchased through overstock.com in the past 4 years and we are not disappointed...we enjoyed our first mattress that was queen size then purchased this one in king size, now using the queen mattress in a guest room. I find I sleep better on this mattress than any conventional mattress we have owned or slept on, would 100% buy again. It arrived compressed and we did as instructed allowing it to uncompress for at least 48 hours before sleeping on it, it did come to the full 10 inches. Both hubby and I love this mattress!
My husband and I just love this mattress. He's had shoulder surgery and has been unable to sleep on his back for years!! From the very first night, him and I have slept so well, and he just loves the fact that he can sleep on his back.... I highly recommend this mattress, especially anyone that has had shoulder/hip/back surgeries.
I no longer wake up with sore hips and a stiff neck. I also don't notice my husband getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. He doesn't feel me moving about. Well worth the money and far less expensive than a mattress store tempurpedic or other name brand.
When we moved into our house that was built in 1915, we had to give up our King size mattress as it was a traditional spring type and wouldn't fit up the stairs. For the past 5 years we suffered but found our sweet salvation with this memory foam mattress. We were able to get it up the stairs since it was vacuum sealed. My husband is a loud snorer and he has become a quiet snorer since we've been sleeping on this mattress. I attribute that to the soft firmness of it. Very happy we bought it.
Love this mattress! I ordered medium, rather than soft because of a reviewer that said soft was so soft you could tool out of bed on accident... but now u wish I had ordered soft and I'm sure they were exaggerating. However, this is by far the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on. I don't wake up stiff and my arm doesn't fall asleep when I sleep on my side (and because I'm a side sleeper, I do think I should have ordered the "soft" version). Overall, no regrets, because I'm sleeping better!
I purchased this in kingsize. And in soft. It is soft but not too soft. I previously purchased a different one several years ago and chose the medium firmness and it was too firm. I like a soft mattress and this one is perfect. I'm not sure the gel does much of anything but the mattress cradles you as you sleep. It reshapes after you get up. I like the 10 inch depth better than the 18 I had because sheets fit better and it's lower on my platform bed. It is comfortable and I have arthritis and no aches and pains in the morning! A great buy and I recommend this over the pricy store brands!
A year later and I'm still sleeping like a baby. I got medium firmness and it is perfect. A few hours after receiving, opening (it came vacuum sealed), and setting it up, I crawled in to give it a try. It was very very soft. I was quite upset and regretted not purchasing the firm as I was originally going to. My thought was that since it was gel memory foam it would tend to be softer than one would think. Two days later, when I moved more stuff into my new place, I took a moment to lie down on my disappointing new mattress. BUT..... Over the time I was gone, the mattress had reached its "full potential". It had firmed up (aired up?) and was, and still is, the most comfortable mattress I have ever owned.
This is my first time owning a gel memory foam mattress. I do like it however the smell has not dissipated completely after one week. I purchased the medium and like many other people have stated it's pretty firm. I hardly make a dent when I'm lying down but I'm okay with that. I'm thinking that maybe that'll be better in the long run so as to not leave lasting impressions. I would recommend this mattress.
This mattress arrived very quickly. As others have stated when you cut open the vacuum sealed plastic packing, the mattress fills with air. Ours had no odor at all, which was a pleasant surprise after reading some reviews. We slept on it last night and it was very comfortable. It was the first night in a very long time that my hips and shoulders did not bother me. It was a good sleep.
I LOVE this mattress! I have suffered from hip pain for years (four pregnancies, I think, haven't helped) until I bought this mattress. I was a little worried about how it was delivered, in a very small bundle) and the very reasonable price! I would buy this mattress over and over. I gave it four stars because of my husband. He is a big guy (280 -ish) and we have learned that that is a bit too much for this mattress to handle. His side developed a deep 'pocket' within 3 months, and many rotations later, that part of the bed does not seem to be recovering very well. We have been through a ton of construction lately, and so there have been many curious friends and family coming through. Our 4 kids ad a ton of friends to the parade. My point is that anyone who has sat... and then inevitably laid down on the 'new bed' have absolutely Loved the cozy, soft but supported feel of the mattress. :)
We bought this for our new bedroom. My husband and I both have bad backs and issues with sciatic pain. Since using this bed, my back has bothered me less and I don't wake up stiff. My husband hasn't had as many issues either. I normally get really warm while sleeping and with this bed I haven't had an issue at all. It came in less than 48 hours (Go Overstock free shipping!) and wasn't terribly heavy. It was ready to use within about an hour after unrolling it and opening it to let it air. Definitely would suggest this to friends. I actually rave about this bed! SO comfortable and for such an affordable price. We have been looking for a new mattress after having our previous one for just a year. It took us four years to find a bed that wasn't going to break the bank if we didn't like it. Luckily that hasn't been the case! I can honestly say that this bed has been the best one I have ever owned!
