First, and foremost, the smell of this mattress is definitely pungent. It is the only issue that I have with the mattress. The odor is nauses and does NOT go away after a day. If you put it outside maybe it would go away. I have heard that if you step on these mattresses everyday for a week you can break up the pockets that house the odor. I probably need to do this because it is a strong smell that gets a bit irritating when you are going to sleep. Comfort wise I can say this is about the most perfect bed for me. I like memory foam because of its resiliency. I like being able to jump on the bed and not have it spring back. It is a nice feeling, and it doesn't feel like it will put bounciness to the frame itself. I sleep very well the whole night through without any issues. I use to wake up in the middle of the night often but no issues at all any more. The other thing I like about this bed is the cover. It is well put together. Nice stitching and good craftsmanship. It would be good if it was easy to take off again for airing, however, overall, I really do enjoy sleeping on this bed. Firmness is absolutely perfect and you do not sink into the mattress completely. It contours naturally.
I'm thrilled with the comfort and the price. I have paid more the double for a less comfortable mattress w/o the gel. I couldn't be more please with this mattress. I will probably get a small stool to get in bed since it's a 14" mattress and I'm short, but, that's not a problem. Like I said, I just love this mattress.
I have been sleeping on this mattress for a week and it is exactly like it looks and is described. This is my first memory foam mattress, but I have tested out Tempupedic, and other name brand memory foam mattresses and this mattress is as comfortable if not better then the other ones. I have several herniated discs, spinal damage, and always in constant pain, but with this mattress I am able to get a good night's sleep and awake feeling better. The mattress was delivered as promised, and was easy to take out of the bag and after putting it on the frame in a few hours the mattress grew to its proper size. After a few days of letting the mattress air out the chemical smell disappeared just as stated. It was a little more firm then I expected, but after using it it softer then when I first got it. Also, as the description, and other reviews, stated not each mattress will be the same firmness I would definitely get another one and recommend it to all my friends and family.
Not sure what style has to do with a mattress. Be prepared for an -initial- high level of 'chemical'? aroma........And have a strong, well coordinated helper/crew to move it about and install it on your platform......it's Heavy! Initially seems a bit firmer than expected, nearly disappointing but quickly mellows to anticipated comfort. Be prepared for compression softening over 6-months + use. If you sleep alone and strongly favor one side of the bed - or if one of you is considerably heavier than the other, regular rotation (spinning 180) will be necessary to maintain some semblance of a level surface as a decided indentation will result from consistent, uneven use Once 'break-in' is achieved you will feel like your sunk in a hole when sitting anywhere but on the very edge..........for that matter, I'm guessing that the edge would feel that way with regular use. For all the niggling quirks it is STILL ONE DARN COMFORTABLE BED. .
I have been sleeping on this mattress for a few weeks now and I can't begin to tell you how much more energy I have. No more back pain, nothing! I love this mattress. There was a slight chemical smell in the beginning but nothing overpowering. MY gf is sensitive to that type of smell and it didn;t bug her in the slightest. AWESOME mattress, I would highly recommend
I cant usually sleep on a new bed. Takes days for me to accustom myself before I can have a deep sleep. I was surprised when I slept on this bed. I slept calmly, deeply and relaxed on my first night!!! So comfy. The only thing is this is so heavy that I have to lift it up all by myself...
I am finally able to sleep through the night without constant tossing and turning, I wake up with no pain at all, and I feel better rested than ever before. I've tired sleep number beds, soft pillow tops and firm mattresses. This is the bed for me! The only thing I have to work out is the minimal warmth generated by the bed, but that is nothing compared to the best nights sleep.
I was going to wait a week before I wrote this review, but I just couldn't wait any longer. I have only slept on this mattress 3 nights now and I swear it is the best sleep I have gotten in years. I had been having some back pain for a while now from a mattress that I used to love, but it ended up being a little too soft for me and causing me back problems. I read the reviews on this mattress and I could not wait to try it out. My back has not hurt even a little bit since I started sleeping on this mattress. I feel so refreshed in the morning, and I can tell that I am getting much better sleep at night. I seriously am in love with this mattress! Some reviews say that the mattress has a chemical smell, but I don't think it is too strong. It has gone away for sure just in the 3 days I have used it.
I had been looking for beds one and off for 6 months. I had a nice bed but 10 years later it was starting to sag. I'm tall and my back and neck were hurting so friends and family recommended getting a memory foam bed. It is amazing the difference is so huge, I feel so much better. The bed has a soft top layer that contours to your body. When I got it, I set it out for 48hours since it was vacuum sealed, it also smelled kind like a new paint but the smell wore off pretty soon. Also be aware the first time you sleep on it you might think, this thing sucks!! But it has a week or two break in period, then it breaks in and becomes great. Make sure you get a platform bed frame for this with good even support with lots of slats! (theses mattress are heavy) xxxx is a great place to look, This bed is amazing. Beds this nice in store will cost almost triple this mattress and don't really do you any better. A nice mattress will only last 10 years if you sleep on it every night, don't waste your life sleeping on a bad bed you will regret it!!!!
We love this mattress. I was going to write this review after the first night but thought I should give it more time...but time hasn't changed our opinion. We love it and we don't wake up aching any more; literally from the first use. I will say that it isn't soft at all. Let it sit for a few hours after unwrapping it to let it properly expand and it becomes very firm. We no longer toss and turn all night long and it doesn't move around if one of us moves or gets up. We are thrilled and also bought the 11" mattress for another bed. Can't wait to see how that one goes.
Researched the heck out of these memory foam mattresses. Definitely wanted a gel-infused mattress to offset some of the heat retention issues. Liked some of the name-brand versions at the mattress stores, but couldn't see dropping that much money when the reviews were so high for this mattress. Finally went with the 14" version for no other reason but the old 'why the heck not' logic... but now I realize that the 12" would've looked better on my platform bed frame and would've saved me some $$ to boot. I've had the mattress for a couple weeks now and absolutely love it. I'm sleeping much better, getting to sleep is much easier (this has been a problem for me), and love that it supports my back (no longer waking up with a stiff back). I'm traditionally a side/chest sleeper, but with this mattress supporting me so well, I'm able to now sleep on my back as well. All that being said, the principle benefit I've noticed is significantly deeper sleep...I'm waking up completely refreshed after only 5-6 hours of sleep, whereas with my old traditional mattress I'd wake up after 8 hours and still not feel like I was getting enough sleep. I'll definitely take 2 more hours of being awake given there is no trade off with being tired. It is a firm mattress, but no more so than my old mattress. If it's too firm, I'd definitely recommend the 2-inch highloft gel memory foam mattress topper from the same manufacturer as this mattress (I'd bought it 3-4 months ago and it's a fantastic product...very great at dispersing heat...but no longer using it having bought this mattress). The only issue I am having with this mattress is one that I imagine I'd have transitioning to any memory foam mattress: the lack of edge bolstering. I'm a somewhat restless sleeper, so I can shift around while sleeping. With a traditional mattress, the edge of the mattress is rather firm, which keeps your entire body on the mattress. But with a memory foam mattress, you easily slide/shift off the side. It's not like I've fell off or anything, but I do wake up when I've noticed that part of my torso is off the mattress. Not a big deal and I seem to be getting more accustomed to staying toward the center, but definitely a learning curve.
the mattress is comfortable a little on a firm side but we love it... the design is great and overall we are happy with it. the only thing we don't like is the chemical smell. we had the mattress for about 3 weeks and it still smells! less than at the beginning but still smells!
