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 was very shocked with this bed. It came in a box which is the first time I had ever seen anything like this. I opened the plastic bag and once the bed touch the air it immediately expanded. Kind of crazy but kind of neat also. I let it sit out for a few days. I didn't smell any type of smell at all I just wanted it to inflate to what it was going to inflate too I guess. I put it on my daughters bed and it is really extremely comfortable good purchase
I just bought a residential care facility for the elderly and needed six high-quality beds for my residents. This bird was crazy because it comes in a box but once it is out in hits the air, it inflates to a normal bed. I was a little bit leery as I need the bed to be firm and enough but also soft enough for them to be comfortable and not hurt their back's at all. I laid on the bed and was very surprised it is both of the above Firm enough but also soft enough. Very good purchase I couldn't be happier
This is a great mattress. It came very quickly and we followed the directions (waited 48 hours after unpacking to use). The mattress inflated quickly as did not have a bad smell that we have come to expect from other memory foam mattresses we have used in the past. The mattress is firm, but very comfortable. I love the soft gel layer that makes the mattress soft for the top couple inches then the foam underneath is firm to give the support that we need. I have purchased other items from this brand and it is quickly becoming my favorite bedding brand. I would highly recommend this mattress to anyone that is looking for a memory foam mattress.
First off, if you have never had a memory foam mattress, know that they are different than your typical box spring mattress. From my experience, all of the differences are improvements/benefits.
When you sit down, lay down, or apply any pressure to the mattress, it will “give” or “sink in” a bit exactly where you apply the pressure. Note, this is a good thing! If you think about a box spring mattress when you lay on it, the whole mattress is likely to “sink in” a little. That means that if there are more than one of you on the mattress, you are going to know it and feel it, especially when one of you rolls over or moves around. With my Lucid memory foam mattress, I can’t even tell my wife is there when she is sleeping next to me. I don’t feel the mattress move when she rolls over.
This mattress is solid in the best way possible. It’s not bouncy and offers great support, molding to your body when you’re on it. That’s what makes this bed so comfortable. For those who want your mattress to be extra-extra soft, I would definitely recommend this bed, but also getting a down mattress topper from Lucid. Then you’ll have the support you need, and on the surface it will feel like you are sleeping on a pillow. Personally, I’m more than happy with my Lucid mattress just the way it is, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Both my husband and I have back pain. I did a lot of research on the type of bed we should buy. I learned that a medium firm memory foam was best. I also have night sweats, so I wanted to get the gel memory foam. I was thrilled to find this bed. The price was excellent. It expanded to full size in less than a day and the smell was almost totally gone after 2 days. We have been sleeping on it for a week now and I no longer have a back ache when I wake up. The mattress does not feel hot to sleep on. I don't know how long this mattress will last, but the price was so inexpensive that it will be no problem to buy another one.
Well, I've had my new mattress for almost 2 months now and I am so sorry I did not buy a foam mattress 10 yrs ago. We've tried a water bed, a futon, and an expensive spring mattresses over the last 25 yrs. My husband suffers from back pain usually when he sleeps and it's significantly lessened since getting this mattress. I feel like I'm sleeping on a cloud. It's just got perfect support. I usually suffer from insomnia, getting up and down at night, tossing & turning, I even used to go out and sleep on the couch or my easy chair-- not anymore! Full, beautiful night's sleep.
We were going to get a spring mattress as usual; and we were going to spend a lot on one because we're never satisfied with them and hoped to get a really high quality one. In our last ditch effort to try to get something good, we did a lot of research on mattresses and best mattresses for overweight people and firm high density foam seemed to rate the absolute highest. The price made it seem too good to be true- less than a third of what we were thinking we would have to spend on a spring mattress-- but we figured it was worth a shot.
When it arrived we didn't have much problems at all with the smell or giving it time to expand. From that first night, I've been just delighted. I cannot wait to crawl into it at the end of the day. The foam is very very firm and thick (we were told to get at least 12" foam, this is over 14") and springs right back into place after you get up. It's firm enough to be very supportive, and the gel foam top is like a little pillow top giving that extra little cushion. One of the warnings with foam was that you could sweat on it, but we live in FL and it's July and have not had that problem, so I guess that's the cooling gel foam top at work for us. We're both very tall and a bit overweight, but we have had no problem with there being permanent indents in this mattress; I turn it 1/4 turn once per week and it's absolutely fine, as god as the day we took it out of the box.
We were told one of the biggest drawbacks of a foam mattress is it's hard to turn in them because of the way you sink and it conforms to your body-- I was worried about that because I'm a tosser and usually very restless. I don't feel it's that much more difficult to turn on than spring mattresses myself, but the thing is I don't really turn much at all anymore because I'm just so comfortable. I no longer wake up flailing back and forth every 2 hrs trying to find a new comfortable position-- some nights, after 8 hrs, I wake up in the exact position I fell asleep in, and feel totally good.
I'm hard to please and when I usually purchase products, I rarely give out 5 stars. Even when it's everything it says it is, I only tend to give out 4 stars. A product has to be above & beyond my expectations for me to give out 5 stars, but this mattress gets it, hands-down. I feel it's one of the smartest purchases I've ever made. I will never ever ever go back to a spring mattress, ever! Our room feels like a luxury suite with this thing, it's absolutely heaven.
Now we're replacing my kids beds this year, and after laying on our bed (I have to constantly kick them out, every night and rainy day I have kids laying all over my bed watching TV) THEY all want foam mattresses too!
As other customers, I was leery about ordering a mattress set online. After reading the reviews, I decided to try this for my daughter. She suffers from severe Crohn's disease, viceral hyperalgesia and fibromyalgia. The foundation is very high quality solid wood and easy to assemble. The mattress is the best! She always has problems sleeping with her pain issues,and her meds make her hot, but her first night on this mattress she slept 12 hours straight! Amazing!
When it came so compressed I thought, never it will never fill out, I've made a mistake. After my friend and I placed it on bed it was like watching magic! It began to poof up and we wondered when it would stop? It is wonderfully Firm just a joy to lay down on. I could not have received a better value on a sleeper sofa mattress anywhere. Another plus no odor at all and it has a very nice cloth cover. I am very happy.
I bought this in a full size to use on the top bunk in kids room. Perfect fit and very comfortable! Being only 5" it is comfortable enough for an adult, but much better for kids! UPS delivered, packaging was perfect! Im very happy with this purchase!
I did a lot of research on different Gel Memory Foam Mattresses anywhere from *** and many of the internet versions are the same materials that are sold on great discount websites like Overstock. I bought this mattress during the President's Day sale with a 17% coupon and got a great deal. It arrived a week later and I got plenty of notice for the delivery date that I could schedule an alternative date when I was home to accept delivery so UPS wouldn't just leave it at my door. I opened it up and let it deflate for about 10 hours before I went to bed. I've been getting great sleep and the common misconception of Gel Memory Foam Mattresses being too hot and not directing the body heat or in my case not being firm enough when ordering a Firm Mattress have not been true.
We have had this mattress/foundation since March, and we have been very happy with it. It has kept it's shape, and both my husband and I weigh around 200 lbs. I really feel like I have gotten a better night's sleep with this mattress and don't feel like I toss and turn as much as I used to. Happy customer right here!
I did very thorough research for months before I made my purchase. I read all the reviews and no one really had anything bad to say. This is the most comfortable mattress I've ever owned. I thought it might be too high for my bed, but it's perfect. The foundation was very easy to assemble. It took about ten minutes. Some people spoke of the mattress having an odor and some did not. My mattress did have a factory like odor for about a week or two, but nothing unbearable. I have two friends in the market for a mattress and I highly recommended this one.
Very easy to put together! I am a grandma and I did it myself! I really liked that it had no crossbars or springs under your body when you lay on it. It will be perfect for extra house guests to use and comfortable. Folds and fits in closets for storage too. I was given this roll away bed to test. Just what we wanted. Thinking of purchasing another one.
3 years ago, I ordered the Comfort Dreams 11 inch select-a-firm mattress, firm, queen. It has withstood the test of time. It has remained it's shape and firmness. After 1.5 years of use, we use it in the guest bedroom. Everyone who has slept on the guestroom bed say they slept "very well" - regardless of their preference of firmness.
Based on the performance of our 1st Comfort Dreams 11-inch select-a-firm mattress, I went with Comfort Dreams vs. ALL other Overstock memory foam mattress.
King 14-inch Gel memory foam is JUST as firm as the Queen 11-inch select-a-firm. We chose 3 more inches because our previous pillow top mattress was the same height.
(+) All of our bedsheets fit appropriately.
(+) Comfortably cool on the surface.
I spent many agonizing hours searching for a foam mattress that would suit both mine and my wife's needs. We had spent a short vacation on the beach here in N.W. Florida and the bed we slept in came with a foam mattress. During the past year and a half I have had to sleep with a pillow bolster between my legs because of a serious sciatic injury. While healed the remnants of pain were still there if I was not properly positioned which was difficult to do. But after sleeping on the foam mattress without the bolster my pain was gone! That did it .And so the search began. Visiting mattress stores I found the t...p model to suit my needs but not the price. Way overpriced. And after reading numerous reviews(too many it seemed) I decided on the ComforPedic in the plush- plus king form from Overstock at a great price..half of what stores were asking. It arrived in four days, is heavy and comes wrapped tightly in a heavy plastic. After setting the package on the box spring I carefully scissored open the bag and voila! out popped the mattress. Within minutes it was ready to lie on and the odor was very very minimal. We slept on it that night and the comfort level was wonderful. It is not as soft as I expected, probably a medium soft ,however it works just fine and no more backaches when I wake up. The slight odor dissipated within a few days and now we are enjoying our rest without discomfort. The bed is easy to turn on and there is no disturbance when my wife moves or gets out of bed. I pulled the trigger and bought this mattress and am so glad that I did.
this mattress has gr8 reviews on lots of sites. i bought a full memory foam mattress a few years ago. still amazing. got married, needed bigger bed. love the cool gel, perfect firmness for side and back and front sleeping.
I researched memory foam mattresses and collected my data, found this specific one but was very apprehensive buying a mattress without laying on it for awhile first. I decided to trust my research and "buy online " and I could not be any happier! Everyone loves the comfort level and it's a dream. If you want to sleep on a cloud, this is the mattress for you, too.
I researched people's reviews and this had over 2000 great reviews. Now here is another. I can't believe how I've suffered such back pain and loss of sleep until now. I can't say how much I love this mattress. I spent 1000 on mattress last year and within months I sank in middle and now it's trash. Thank you so much for wonderful product and helpful reviews
Like many people on here, I spent a lot of time reading reviews, comparing features, and trying mattresses at local stores. The ones in the stores were nice, had warranties, and you could try before you buy. But they were 3 to four times the price, so we decided it was worth the savings to go with one at Overstock.com.
Our first criteria was made in USA, figuring this would ensure the mattress met US safety standards and have less toxic additives in the foam. Secondly, the ones we liked the best in the stores had gel-infused memory foam, so we looked for that feature as well.
The mattress arrived within just a few days of ordering, and we unrolled it and let it expand fully for 2 days before using it. I was happy to see a US factory's address on the one sticker on the packing; it seems like they make memory foam mattresses for a number of "off-brands". The smell wasn't horrible, but our kids could smell it more than us. We left the windows open in the room to help it air out, but the smell was mostly gone within a week.
Sleeping on it has been nice. The gel-memory foam top is soft enough to let your elbows, hips, knees, sink in comfortably, yet the base foam is firm enough to support us so we don't feel entrapped. (I'm 6', under 200#). We can sleep comfortably on our backs or sides.
I was a little leery of it only having 1" of memory foam on it (the rest is just standard foam) but after a few nights of sleeping on it we're very happy with the purchase, considering the price. I'm not giving it 5 stars because it comes with no warranty, and I can't attest to the longevity of it. Only time will tell.
I purchased 3 of the folding beds for guests. The beds are very sturdy and very easy to fold and put away. I would recommend this product to anyone that has guests arriving for the holidays or even vacation.
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!
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.
The firm is VERY firm. Feels like the all latex 12 inch I had before. Memory gel on top is negligible. Reviewer who noted med firm was too soft influenced my choice. A mistake. Added my 4" memory foam topper, but with fitted mattress cover and fitted sheet still quite firm - for my taste.
Outer covers are good and stylish. Came with outer cardboard in shambles, but as plastic intact I accepted. Only took 3 hours to expand. No smell. Hard to get on bed by myself - ditto to drag into house - but once partly on box spring slid easily into position.
I would query retail price listed for this mattress. Have checked and not that listed in retail sites. Would also note it's hot, even in air conditioning.
Good buy for me re local prices same type of mattress. Firmness biggest issue and a concern sides may collapse over time as one gets in and out of bed.
This bed is very solid, it has a very firm mattress. The J-lock system allows for 1 person to set it up. It is a full twin size. It was expensive and 2 days after I bought it overstock put it on sale for $100 off - which irked me until I got the bed and saw and felt its quality - it was well worth the non-sale price I bought it for. I'm very impressed with this bed
the mattress was nicely packaged in a large box and it unrolled into shape easily. There was not a strange smell or anything and it is super comfy. I do not find it to be too hard or too soft, I find it to be just right -and my name is not goldielocks :)
We bought two for our daybed with trundle set and the twin size fit perfectly without a box spring. As far as getting too hot or staying cool, we have not
noticed anything in terms of overheating or otherwise. Great mattress would recommend to a friend.
