I love this mattress! I will say though, it came in a HUGE black bag and weighed about 100 pounds so it was difficult for the ups man to get it to the door and for me to get it up the stairs. When I unrolled it, it started expanding and the smell/fumes of it are verrrry overpowering. I would recommend to let it air out for at least two days. It has a layer on the top of it that is very soft, yet the foundation is very firm, which makes a good mix. I love it, my back really doesn't hurt anymore when I wake up!
I wanted a queen mattress for a platform bed, and didn't want to worry about delivery. Even after it expanded it looks thinner than it is- but I guess if you measure it it is JUST 8". Very comfortable though. I later ordered a 6" one (again, looking at it it doesn't look 8" and so I thought I'd ordered the 6") and it wasn't nearly as nice. Get the 8"!
Bought this for our RV but would like to have this mattress on my home bed. Very comfortable. Also has a very nice cover which has a zipper so it can be removed to be washed although I have not tried that. Definitely unwrap this in the area where you will use it. We partially opened it and let it air for a month as we didn't need it immediately. I have not noticed any odor with this foam and I am very sensitive to odors. Highly recommended.
Took it out of a very compact duffle bag style wrapping and had very little "smell" as sometimes happens with foam. It is exactly 8 inches deep, good fit on top of an older box spring. It is a firmer mattress, but that's what we need and are pleased with the comfort level. The protective cover is of very good quality. Overall we are very satisfied with the speed in which it was shipped and every aspect of the transaction. This is the second mattress we have purchased from overstock...I will go nowhere else because of the quality, convenience and speed in which things arrive.
We purchased this mattress for the second bedroom of our vacation condo after purchasing the 11 inch version for the master bedroom. While this mattress is comfortable, the 11 inch is much more comfortable. I would recommend the 11 inch over this mattress if you will be sleeping on it every night. However, this one is fine for occasional use in a spare bedroom. That is exactly our situation so we are pleased with the savings we realized on the 8" vs. the 11", but we are also glad we spent more on the more frequently used bedroom. We are purchasing the same brand and style today in the 14 inch version for our main home.
If you haven't ever had the opportunity to sleep on or own a memory foam mattress, this product is a great solution to that problem. My significant other and I have slept on nothing but old, worn out, and uncomfortable spring mattresses and just in the last three nights of sleeping on this bed, we have woke up pain-free and well rested. We got the bed on time, which was great. We also knew going into it that it had that factory smell to it, but as one person wrote in their review, if you place fans around the mattress, it really helps. We went ahead and febreezed the top and bottom, we didn't have any problems. Now, is this bed top notch? No. But you definitely get what you pay for. If you really need a good nights sleep, this mattress would totally be better than that old spring mattress. It's not NASA memory foam, but we have no complaints. We absolutely love it. A definite good buy.
As others mentioned, this mattress definitely has a smell. I unpacked it 3 days ago and it's still pretty bad, and I'm not that sensitive to smell. I still decided to sleep on it after the 2nd day and I was extremely comfortable, and I slept really well. I'm 5'6 and about 135 lbs and it's really the perfect level of soft for me, I'd say it's worth it for the price, the only downfall is the smell. It was delivered in a punching bag sized shipment, but I was pleased with how it expanded. No odd shapes, not too thin.
So my husband is active military and has a tiring job and myself, well I have a bad back. So getting rid of our crappy spring mattress was a must. The day that our mattress arrived I had just had a cervical epidural injection in my neck so I was in a great deal of pain. I summed up the strength to haul it up stairs and set it up. I slept more sound than I ever have in my life. It was like pure heaven.
I was amazed at the comfort of this mattress. I awoke the morning of my first night without any stiffness or back pain. I slept great, without the usual tossing and turning, looking for a cool spot. I even over-slept the morning of the 2nd night. Into the second week, its lost some of its amazing qualities. However, I still consider it a good find.
