I am what I like to call "pleasantly plump," which really just means that I am very heavy. I was worried about buying a memory foam mattress because I was afraid that I would just sink down to the bottom of it and be sleeping on an inch of foam over my boxspring. I was also concerned that it would not be able to hold up as well as a traditional mattress. We had an old, but expensive, Sealy mattress, and it was killing my back and my knees. I had enough and decided to try this mattress in soft (even with my concerns, I did not want it too firm). What a difference!!!! I sleep better, and I don't have the back and knee pain that I used to have. Also, my concerns about the mattress not being strong enough to hold me was completely unfounded, as I have been sleeping on this thing for a month now, and I have never sunk down too far. I feel like I am sleeping on air. Also, as many have already said, it is soooo easy to get this up to your bedroom as it comes looking like a giant Tootsie Roll when you get it. I removed my old mattress, which was very difficult, and put this one on my bed, opened it, and removed the wrappings all by myself!!!. I am so happy that I got this mattress, and you will most likely be too if you decide to buy it.
Rating this was hard for me. The good- it is comfortable. Especially if you like a soft topper. You sink right into this. I am very happy with the comfort. The bad- I don't think the quality is that good. If you grab ahold of it to move it too hard it will rip pieces off of it. I guess you could say its somewhat fragile, which I wasn't expecting. So, that being said, I am also concerned with how long this will last without smashing down flat and becoming useless. It doesn't seem like much more than a piece of soft foam to me. I would not label this memory foam, it is mostly just a piece of 4" soft foam. Don't confuse this with a Tempurpedic type material, cause I owned a Tempurpedic and this is nothing close to that material. If you want to add softness to your bed, and don't mind the price, I would say buy it, it will add comfort. If your big on quality and are looking for a true memory foam topper, you might not be satisfied with this. I just hope its not flattened out in a few months. If it retains its shape and comfort I'll be very satisfied with it, in the mean time I will be concerned.
My wife and I have had bad backs for decades, mine from construction and logging and hers from an old job injury (upcoming 4th surgery for her) and we did our research as any frugal shopper would for the best product for the least money and I have to say THIS IS IT!It took a week or two to adjust to a memory foam bed but since then neither of us wakes up taking 1-2 hours to limber up and there are no more motion stopping bad back days. Our bad back days, when we rarely have them, are so minuet we rarely notice.We didn't need a foundation because we bought a new bedroom set and it was a chest bed (8 lower large chest drawers) for additional bedroom storage.WE ALSO LIKE the no shimmy feature with a memory foam bed, either of us can toss and turn or get up in the night for a bathroom run and we do not wake the other person.DO NOT BUY a topper that installs on an existing conventional box spring and mattress, you will regret it because you will still have the bed vibration and also not the FULL quality and features of total memory foam sleep. With a topper you will still sink and lump with the old mattress and box spring underneath you..Do not hesitate to buy this product, there is way to much quality sleep and less back pain to take charge of and not to have those two features/events/pain back into your life. Had I known more of memory foam before I would have made the change and bought one years ago. Do your foam study and research and you will understand why not to pay thousands for the name brand memory foam mattresses. If the star scale went higher on this review I would give it a strong 10 ....... Hope this review helps you like the reviews I had read here at Overstock before I bought mine, enjoy~~ :-))Ps: No foam smell in ours and to uncompress took an hour....
We're very happy with this mattress! After quite a bit of research on the big brands we found all the features in this mattress at a much more reasonable price. After all, foam is made up of polyols, isocyanites and surfactants. Chemically there's little difference between this foam and that of the big names. It's all marketing hype. Just watch for the densities of the layers and make sure you select the density that best matches your mattress preferences - higher density = firmer mattress.And the most important point I want to make is that we get a better night's sleep and wake up without backpain. Our conventional mattress was less than a year old and cost nearly twice as much. We hated it. Obviously we're very happy to have replaced it with this mattress. The difference is that big.Thanks Overstock for offering memory foam mattresses at a fair price without all the marketing-induced mark-ups.
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 bought this with my fingers, eyes and toes crossed b/c there were no other reviews! Well I am happy to report that this 'system' of pillows is perfect! Yes it seems expensive but it's so worth it. For anyone that needs to be semi-upright whether it's for congestion, reading or any other reason, these pillows offer superior support and b/c the angle is adjustable simply by moving the largest wedge up or down. And the behind the knee booster is awesome too! If reading in bed you'll have to supply your own little pillow but I'm sure almost everyone has an extra soft one laying around. Get it! You won't regret it. But it is BIG! But I don't find that an issue but someone else may. It' takes up one side of our queen bed.
I purchased this mattress to replace my 5 year old Comfort Dreams 11 inch mattress. I originally picked "Soft" based on reviewers saying the soft was a firm mattress. While it was relatively soft, it was firm enough for me at the time. This time however, 5 years later, I chose Firm, and it certainly was firm. I like a firm mattress, but this was firmer than I expected so I added a Wool Fleece mattress topper to it and now I'm in heaven!
The Gel memory foam is cooling, which in my case, can be too cooling, as I like to sleep warm but not sweaty. So the topper is also keeping me comfortably warm without overheating.
All in all I am very pleased with this mattress, as I was with the first one. I figure the price, divided by 5 years, works out to about 18 cents a day to sleep in total comfort. Definitely a great buy! I would buy this mattress again, no question about it.
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!
I received this mattress in 4 days after ordering. I was pleased with how easy it was to handle in spite of how large a package it is. Easy to unpack and setup. There was the "odor" that I was warned about in the literature that lingered for about 4 days or so. I slept on it the first night of arrival, and after 2 days it was fully expanded.
I love this mattress. My head hits the pillow and I'm out until I wake up for work. A friend of mine put out $5K for a name brand memory foam, hated it, and took it back to the local furniture store, and was charged a restocking fee.
I won't be sending this mattress back. I purchased the medium firm, and even my wife, who is extremely particular when it comes to beds, laid down on this mattress, during the day, and was out for two hours. She couldn't believe it. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this purchase. It's well made, well finished, and extremely comfortable.
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
I have CPOD & arthritis among other things. I had not been able to sleep in a bed for over 2 years. I ordered the mattress to go a daybed in my room for the family to sit and watch movies with me. I sit on the mattress and thought I might be able to sleep on it. I have every night. Words escape me to say how thankful I am to be able to sleep on a bed again. On the bed is the only place I am not in pain from my arthritis.
Received the mattress in 4 days, well ahead of the 10-day expected delivery. Mattress unrolled easily and weird smell was gone within one week. Bed is VERY comfortable. I ordered a "MEDIUM" and it's relatively soft, so if you're looking for Medium to Firm you should probably go with the FIRM. The bed is up to, if not beyond my expectations for what I expected to receive in this price range. Only thing I can think is a "not so great" about the mattress is that I've needed to sleep in different spots every few nights to let the foam regain it's form (i.e. sleep on the left side of the bed one night, the middle area the next night, and then back to the left or over to the right on the following night.) This isn't a problem for me because I sleep alone, so I'm not sure how this would work if two people are sleeping on the bed. I bought a DOUBLE/FULL size mattress.
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 mattress can sleep hot and wet. As, apparently, do many foam mattresses.
Otherwise, the product to date seems as advertised; extremely comfortable (provided you like "hot and wet" sleeping), attractive and, thus far, durable. There was no appreciable odor, as suggested by the advertising.
We purchased this unit in a, medically-recommended, "medium" firmness to meet various comfort and health requisites. Further, this mattress was purchased for use by a "fluffy" (over-weight) individual, which may contribute to some excess "cocooning" or sinking-in. At "ideal" body weight, I have slept on this mattress and find it "hot and wet" as well.
As regards "hot and wet", we anticipated this and also purchased a latex topper and all-encompassing mattress cover. These additions helped allay the ventilating problems that seemed to foment the "hot" and "wet" conditions.
Be certain you really want a 14-inch tall mattress. This can present a problem for shorter and/or less agile sleepers getting in and out of bed.
If you have a sleeper of the "Princess and the Pea" persuasion this might be the mattress for you. It is deep and comfortable.
This order was processed, shipped and arrived in short order. The product is well packaged, it is a bit heavy, as it should be, and is rolled up and bound tightly. Once unwrapped and unbound the mattress rather slowly uncoils to its proper size and shape ... sweet.
We purchased this bed in Feb 2016 So we have had it for while. We love love love this mattress. It's extremely comfortable to sleep on, easy to keep clean, and doesn't make you over heat. My son loves it so much we are planning on upgrading his mattress also.
I bought this for a guest room in our 2nd home. Since it isn't in use daily, I didn't want to spend $$$ on high end memory foam which I did with my main bed in my primary home. Even so, the bed is firm but still conforms and supports my lower back comfortably. Perhaps not quite to the extent of my higher end memory foam
