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.
This mattress foundation took about an episode of Housewives of Orange County to put together for a 48 year old woman. You need a large space to spread out all of the parts and be organized, but once you think of it as a puzzle, it will go quickly. The instructions seem to have been written by my crazy uncle after he was two sheets and one mattress to the wind. If you are a self-starter and a puzzle master, this will not make you sweat. The cover is tight to put on at the end, but I found that leaning the frame upright against my couch and pulling it on like size 5 jeans helped to get it zipped with no problem. Oh, you want to know how the foundation feels? That is the good part, no noise, no movement, no sagging. This is bridge construction underneath you. It is 100 times better than a wood-constructed mattress box spring. Hope this helps!
We were able to move the mattress to our bedroom fairly easily. It fits our bed perfectly. It is quite firm, and we are using a foam topper to give a less firm surface. This makes a very comfortable mattress.
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.
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!
When our new mattress-in-a-box was left at the end of our drive due to a snowstorm I was worried.
My husband said, "This can't be a mattress. You must have ordered a topper by mistake."
Thank goodness the approximately 4' x 2' x2' box was well wrapped. We carried it into the bedroom and slid the tightly wrapped bundle out of its box. We unwrapped the mattress and set it on top of our box springs. The mattress looked like it was way too small and had been run over by a steam roller. My husband said, "You got scammed."
I told him the reviews gave it a five, and we went to eat dinner.
Later in the evening when we checked on the bed it was like someone had taken the crumpled up mess of a mattress and replaced it with a beautiful high priced memory foam bed. It was like magic!
The mattress is amazing! Great price---shipped to your home, and is as comfortable as a top of the line high priced mattress. This is a no brainier. Buy the mattress, you'll be happy you did. Happy sleeping!
This is a beautiful mattress, it arrived rolled nicely in a box and was super easy to setup. It is really comfy and I was amazed at how high quality this is. I am really excited to let my parents know, they have been looking for a good mattress for quite a while.
Everyone thought that I was crazy for purchasing a mattress online. I have never had any issue with any product I've ordered from Overstock.com that I didn't hesitate. The mattress arrived at the time I was told it would arrive. White glove treatment. It was a rainy day, and the delivery men took great care with my oversized package. Made sure I was happy with it before they packaged up my old mattress and box springs and again, were very thorough about not leaving any packaging behind. My husband and I are loving the quality of the mattress and impressed with the entire experience.
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.
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!
First off, I just want to say that like many of the other reviewers here my husband and I were weary of purchasing a mattress, let alone a memory foam mattress, over the internet with no way to test it. We decided that since it was relatively cheap, we'd go ahead and try it. We could not be happier! This mattress is exactly as it's described. It is very, very comfortable.
We did wait the 48 hours to let the bed air out like the product says to. We didn't want to take any chances on messing it up or ruining it. We never did get the full 14 inches, but we're less than a quarter inch from it, so it's no big deal.
The mattress does come with a mattress cover, but it's not a traditional one. It's more like a couch cushion cover and I'm assuming it is zipped up somewhere on the side, but we could never find it to take it off, but it's quilted and very soft. It's softer than our sheets. We still went ahead and bought a waterproof mattress cover because we have two large dogs and anything could happen.
Of course, everyone's opinion of "medium firm" differs, but for me it is still pretty darn firm. I sink into it, but not as much as I would like but it is okay because I do tend to have lower back pain as well as shoulder pain. Since sleeping on this mattress I can honestly say that my back and shoulder have not bothered me. I like to also sleep on my side and stomach (I am not a back sleeper) and it is wonderful. :-) My husband sleeps on all sides including his back and he loves it.
Like most memory foam mattress' you do tend to get really warm. If you tend to have hot flashes, I would not recommend a memory foam mattress. However, since I get really cold a lot this is perfect for me. I stay warm and sleep like I have never slept before. It is so hard for me to actually get up in the morning and start my day.
I am so glad we decided to purchase this mattress. It is wonderful and now my husband and I can sleep in the positions most comfortable to us without bumping or kneeing each other at night like we did in our old pillow top Queen.
Prior to this purchase, I had purchased an OVERSTOCK bulk pack of two 10" Queen sized mattresses for the guest rooms in our new weekend home. We also needed a bed for ourselves so we decided to try these before we purchased a King sized. We liked it! The MEMORY FOAM is very different from what we are used to (a number bed) - much harder but, still very comfortable. And it was not at all hot - a real concern for this 50+ woman. LOL. After the first weekend, we were hooked. I came back to OVERSTOCK to search for the King and found this SELECT-A-FIRMNESS. I ordered the MEDIUM and I have to say that it is worth the extra money - (about $70.00 if you are an Club O member.) There IS A NOTICEABLE difference in the firmness and both of us are glad I paid for the option.
It was packed "tootsie roll style" - like the queens but, in a plastic sock instead of the canvas. It plumped up quickly- we slept on it the first night and, we didn't notice any smell at all, (and I know the smell others write about because I've ordered memory foam pads - they smelled for weeks - and were hot.)
I recommend HIGHLY this mattress. (And my friend who purchased the name brand thinks that this one is just as comfortable as hers.) If you are at all concerned about the firmness, try the SOFT but, keep in mind that the closer the mattress molds to your body - the warmer the mattress will feel. Thank you OVERSTOCK. This mattress is a great value!
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 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.
The mattress came in a large long narrow box, the box frame came unassembled in another large long square narrow box. Delivery was exactly as expected. The box frame was very simple to assemble and took about 15-20 minutes at most. The mattress was vacuum packed and rolled up. Once opened, it expanded quickly into a really nice king mattress. I bought it for my lake house bedroom, the old one really hurt my back. I have a Tempurpedic king at my main home and boy is it the greatest! I wanted that kind of comfort without spending $3000. This mattress is slightly firmer, but it's very very comfortable, and I'm totally satisfied with the quality and comfort. When I wake up I don't have the aches and pains like the old mattress, and can now go back and forth and get the same nights sleep in either bed! The foam style is so nice, you sink into it and it shapes to your form releaving pressure points, whether on your back or side. I bought the box frame to ensure the height was right for the bed, and wanted to keep the old mattress set together and use it elsewhere. You could use your box spring though. Great bang for the buck!
After considering a Casper Mattress, I decided to get the Spring Air, mostly because my previous Spring Air lasted for more than 10 years. I am not disappointed. This is a great mattress and it has really helped with my stiff hip that used to ache when I slept on my side at night. Relief has been sweet.
I've had the mattress a little over 2 months and I really love how plush this pollo top mattress is!! Very good buy, and got for a great price. I have no complaints so far it has been wonderful for me and my hubby..
Great delivery-the delivery is fast and clean. Great quality-I don't know much about the mattress but my back knows. I sleep on this mattress for 3 days now and my back is never painful anymore. Overall, a good purchase with good price(compare to the store purchase)
My boyfriend and I LOVE this mattress! We switched from your traditional coil/spring mattress to the latex mattress and will never go back. This mattress is very supportive and it greatly decreased the back pain we get from both being on our feet at work for 12 hours. It is similar to a memory foam mattress, however, you don't feel like you're sinking deep into the mattress like you do with memory foam. It is on the firmer side and if you're used to a very soft mattress they do sell the a mattress topper, but it feels amazing without it. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a supportive mattress without feeling like you're sleeping on concrete.
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.
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!
