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 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.
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!
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!
