Research Time: off and on for a month
Prior Mattresses: Pillow top Queen, Full Futon
Testing: went to local mattress store and tested out their beds, my favorite was the tempur pedic cloud supreme which is *** without base. This is the closest mattress with a good price for the size that I could find.
Self-Stats to compare for bed softness: Age 27, Weight 240lb, BF %12
I don't normally do reviews but since this mattress doesn't have any and i was thoroughly impressed with it. I needed to give it the gold stars it deserved!!!!!
I read about how gel infused is the best for heat issues which i do have with mattresses, i also liked how soft and forming the tempur pedic was at the store. I just didnt want to pay a ridiculous amount for the mattress when they are pennies on the dollar. Reason i gave my personal stats so you can get a feel of why the bed feels that way for me. I have a solid weight to me and i still don't "sink" in like I've read before on other reviews for this site. Even though this mattress doesn't have any reviews the 12" and the queen size does. As well as the specs are closer to the mattress i liked as stated above which is why i purchased it. The bed is VERY comfortable considering i'm a side sleeper and i can now fall asleep on my back which is new to me. The mattress it fits your body quite well and i have no back pain from the mattress at all after sleeping on it for a week and a half. I would highly recommend this mattress to anyone who does like memory foam mattresses and doesnt want a lot of heat issues. Also I would see no reason to get the other selections except for soft for this mattress.
Please note**** you will need deep pitted sheets for this mattress since it is a 14 King. In addition, just turn on a high powered fan and leave it on the mattress for about 3-4 hours which will neutralize most of the odors for a while. Make sure to leave your bedroom door open so the odor has a place to escape or at least leave a fan on it at all times. The smell isnt that bad but not something you want to deal with when you are going to bed.
Im probably going to stay with Overstock mattresses from now on and just use my local companies beds to test what I want lol. No reason to pay for their overhead!!!!
Furthermore, the mattresses outside covering was made in China but the gel and foam it was filled with was made in the USA.
Hope this review was helpful.
I wanted to write a review of this mattress for other people such as myself who have never purchased a mattress online.
First about me. 5'11" and about 220. So not a small person. I had been needing a new bed for awhile now and had done tons of research. I went to the local mattress stores and tried out several brands and sizes. All of them were 10" or below and most twice the price. However I was hesitant if not downright terrified to spend almost 500.00 online, knowing full well and good that it would be an enormous pain to return the thing once it got here. Plus, having never tried it out I was concerned that it wouldn't have the feel I wanted.
But, I read the reviews and pulled the trigger and about 2 weeks later it arrived. I actually slept on it that night. My girlfriends initial response was that it was too hard. She is 5'4' and about 120. Now however she is the one that loves it even more then I do. I will say that as a stomach sleeper I have found that I wake up feeling very stiff at times, but that rolling over I go back to sleep almost immediately and have not woken up with back pain or tossed and turned all night as I had previously.
I did get the medium firm and after reading other reviews got the waterproof mattress cover as I want this bed to last.
In summation this is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The odor was almost non existent. The set up was easy, but do follow others instructions and open it where you want it at, because it is heavy.
So order with confidence. This is a great deal. If you are familiar with memory gel, you will be happy. Don't waste your money on a bed that is half the height and twice the price.
I used to wake up everyday with aches in my neck and lower back. I am only 30 but I felt like I was 90, all crotchety and stiff. I was involved in a serious car accident and have always needed 15 pillows to find comfort even when sitting up. I am exaggerating but you get the point. I always hurt. We had purchased a new pillow top mattress thinking that would help. It was quite firm and I did not want to deal with the hassle of finding another expensive failure. I resorted to these toppers. I purchased 2 of the Slumber Solutions Highloft Supreme Memory Foam toppers in the standard King size (one 3" and one 4"). I couldn't decide after reading the reviews so I bought both....If you are trying to decide between the 3" and the 4" Let me help you out. READ THIS. Both had a smell...nothing to run away from...just a little like fresh rubber and Pine-sol. Most of it went away by the 2nd day. Surprisingly the 4" was less smelly than the 3". Let me tell you - There is a HUGE difference between the softness/squishyness between the 3" and the 4" heights although everything else is the same (density, size, etc). The 3" provides cushion but nothing ultra plush. It provides extra comfort but you can still feel the hard bed through the bottom of the topper. The 4" is the ultimate in comfort. It is super thick and you CAN NOT feel the hard mattress underneath. I was able to put the 4" on the floor and not feel the floor. You could feel the floor through the 3". I never would have thought that 1" would make that much difference but IT DOES! It is unusual because the 4" is soooo soft but yet my back doesn't sink into a hole. I tried it with the fingers up and with the fingers down and I prefer them up. I feel like they are holding me up everywhere they touch my body -back of the neck, shoulder blades, lower back, even the back of my legs, hammys, and calves.. I didn't think I would like it. I have never been an egg crate kind of gal but this is different. I absolutely love to cuddle into my bed and rub my feet back and forth giving me a little massage right before I drift off into bliss. ...I guess this is what people mean by sleeping on air. I never understood them or what they meant when they said that. It is really nice. I seriously ask my husband every morning "How did we live without this?" He agrees. We have never had so much comfort out of an item that cost so little. I needed soft cushion with good support and the 4" is the answer. Both the 3" and the 4" are GREAT products and I would recommend both. We use the 3" king -cut into 2 twins- for my 3 year old son and also the guest bed. Both beds were hard as cement and it was actually nicer to sleep on the floor before. Topper sizing was perfect standard King makes 2 twins- just cut with sharp scissors. Now with the toppers they are quite comfy. My son no longer climbs out of his bed to sleep on the floor. My guest also commented that his bed was tremendously more comfortable too. He slept on the bed before the topper arrived and then after I placed it on the bed. NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE> So, in conclusion, if you are trying to decide between the 3" and the 4" and you are looking for squishy, supportive comfort GO WITH THE 4". If you need to save a few dollars then go with the 3" but I can almost guarantee that you will wish you had spent the few extra dollars for the 4" right after you receive the 3. Do yourself a favor and do it right the first time BUY THE 4 TOPPER.
I dont think I've ever left a review for any kind of product, however....this was the BEST purchase I've made all year. My husband is the biggest skeptic and believes everything is a ploy to get our money. When I told him I purchased this mattress topper, he said "just throwing your money away, you know its not going to work". WELL WELL WELL, we have BOTH admitted that this is BY FAR THE MOST COMFORTABLE mattress topper I've ever had. I put my nephew down to sleep on the bed, where he would only sleep 1 hour at a time, he slept for 3 hours! I'm a busy person, who runs off very minimal sleep maybe 3-4 hours a night, and this has made a BIG difference in my sleeping pattern. I'm now thinking about purchasing this mattress topper for the pull out bed in the living room! I'm sure our guests will appreciate it. I'm sleeping more soundly, more comfortably, not waking up tossing and turning ever 30 mins, and my husband and I are both noticing the differene in our energy levels. We now wake up refreshed and READY. Where as we had to literally push each other off the bed to get up for work! GREAT GREAT GREAT! I can't rave enough :-)
I generally don't take the time to review things but in this case, I must.
This was hands down the best money I ever spent
. I was diagnosed with severe RA a year ago, I was sleeping on a 15 year old mattress I couldn't afford to replace. Trying to sleep was agony, it even felt as though sleeping on my side was causing nerve damage in my hands, the more exhausted I became flip flopping all night long, the more I flared, in short I was miserable and barely functioning.
I dreamed of owing a tempurpedic but on disability who can afford that?
I saw the toppers read reviews and picked this 4.5 with cover.
The cover is EXCELLENT quality. The topper has given me the most comfort, the best rest I've ever had.
Back in the day I owned a mattress that cost more than what a lot of people drove. It wasn't as good as my 15 year old mattress with this on it. Strait up. Looooooooooove it.
We currently own a sleep number bed and could not find a comfortable adjustment for it. We went to the sleep number store and the rep wanted to sell us a $***+ 2.5" memory foam topper. We gracefully left the store and found this one. We figured why not give it a try, half the cost and almost twice the thickness. It was great. My wife who likes a really soft mattress was very happy, and I who likes a firmer but comfortable mattress was happy. It made our expensive uncomfortable mattress VERY comfortable. So much so that I softened my side and my wife firmed hers up a little and now we dont have such a big difference in mattress heights. As far as getting hot and the pad not breathing we had no problems at all. It was very comfortable temperature wise.
Two notes to mention. Many people said that the mattress had a chemical smell and walked down the mattress. We had no smell at all, and I mean at all. We pulled it out of the package and let it sit for the rest of the day (6 hours) and then made the bed and went to sleep. They do say to leave it sit out for a day or so but we had seen no reason to wait. As far as walking down the mattress. We never had seen it happen to our bed at all. It stays in place pretty well.
For what is it worth, this was worth every penny spent and then some. We could not have imaged how much of a difference it has made.
I too read all the reviews and decided to give it a try. VERY happy with the product. VERY happy with delivery to my door and ease of set up. Didn't have to rent a truck. Don't be fooled when the package arrives. My husband and I were skeptical but the mattress grew to the designated size. Does it compare to our Tempurpedic? Not EXACTLY but then it is a fraction of the cost. If you have no point of comparison I believe you will be thrilled. Quality crafting and finishing of the mattress cover as well. NO smell to speak of and I am very sensitive when it comes to chemical type odors. Will be purchasing another mattress soon and will be buying another memory foam from Overstock. This was our 'test' if you will because my husband wanted a firm mattress for his back issues. We went with a medium for this guestroom purchase and he feels he will go with medium again-concerned that firm might be TOO firm-even for a guy who could literally sleep on concrete. I feel like I am gushing but both of us couldn't find any negative about the experience.
Writing a review on a mattress topper is tricky because it is so subjective, so having said this...let me say that this is my second one I purchased. The first one was well made, but just way to soft for my comfort. This one is the firm model and this topper is also quality made. It arrived quickly and was easy to put on to my bed. There wasn't any noticeable odor and it quickly took its shape from being rolled up tightly into a box. My first nights sleep was a huge improvement from the soft one I had been using. I prefer a more firm sleeping surface and this one was much closer to "firm" than my first one. I wouldn't classify this as "firm" when compared to a mattress labeled "firm", this just is less "squishy" than my previous topper. Overall, I am very pleased that I purchased this and feel that for the price, it was a great value.
We researched this product for months before buying. We are very happy with the product. There was a slight odor when we first got it, which took a few days to go away, and is completely gone now. Only took approx. an hour to flatten out from the roll that it was in when it shipped. It took a few nights to get used to it because it is so different than what we were used to, but in the end we are very satisfied.
My mattress was failing; I struggled with it for years. I had a blanket folded up in the center of it, to support my back for over 2 ½ years.
I did my research in stores and online, I was very diligent in my research. But my research paid off. I love my new mattress! Im a side sleeper, and the mattress forgives my body weight (62 240#)
The reviews of this mattress mentioned that it was delivered in a duffle bag. They also mentioned it was heavy, and the need to have help getting the package up the stairs. They werent kidding. I had to struggle.
The duffle bag was 5-feet tall and 18-inches in diameter, and it weighed almost 80-pounds. I did have to struggle to get it up the stairs, but it was well worth it, to sleep better.
I read all about the smell that this mattress emits. I followed the recommended directions and opened a window while the mattress was expanding. Really though, it was like a new car smell, enjoyed, but easily ignored.
On this note, I also allowed the mattress to expand for the entire 48 hours as recommended. I had read many accounts that people had slept on the mattress the same day, then found that the corners and sides were all spongy after time. I wanted to avoid this, as I want my new mattress to last for 20 years or more!
I have slept on this mattress for seven-weeks now, and am still 150% pleased with my purchase. I, even like other reviewers have trouble getting up in the morning, as I just love to lay in my bed and sleep. But that sleep I get is the best Ive ever had. I just lay my head down and fall asleep (usually within about three minutes.)
I recommend this mattress to everyone I know, and to those of you I dont know (who are reading this now.) It really is a great mattress. I hope you find this review helpful and find a good nights sleep too!
The product I saw online and read about and finally ordered was delivered in a timely manner. I was kept up to date the whole way by e-mails from overstock.com including a final one to confirm that the item had been delivered. The product itself (a 12 inch Memory Gel Mattress) was
just as described online. I installed it per the enclosed instructions and enjoyed the advantages of this new type of mattress right away. The very first night I slept better than on my old mattress, no taking a week or more to get used to something different and there were no lines to fall into where buttons had been sown or the feeling of harder places where springs are. I have now been using the mattress for over a month and am completely happy with my choice, I am diabled and my sore spots no longer get worse do to the way I lay on my mattress but I feel very comfortable and the support is amazing without taking away from the soft top, my next step is to get Memory Gel Pillows.
This bed is great! I got this bed about a month ago, my old bed was giving my husband and I back problems, so we decided to go with a memory foam bed. I wanted to get a gel memory foam mattress because it says it is cooling and I like to have a cooling sensation when I sleep. Our backs are feeling way better after sleeping on this bed and it's so comfortable. Not too soft and not too firm. I didn't really notice if it's cooler than other beds but it doesn't sleep hot which is great. I'm pregnant too and this bed helps me sleep through the night unlike my old bed. I just hope this bed last me for a very long time because I love it!
I purchased this in the soft option, i have always used a feather bed but have gotten tired of fluffing and flipping and when my last one wasnt fluffing as much i went on a search. I found this memory foam 4 inch and loved the option of the soft, when i get into bed its almost like sleeping on a pillow, my mattress was just to hard for my liking but this fits the bill , no more feather beds for me !!
