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.
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.
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.
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.
I bought this mattress (E.C.O. Luxury Latex Firm 10-inch Twin-size Mattress) in July 2011. It is November now. No sagging, no back pain. I had a horrible spring mattress before, so I know what sagging and back pain are. I do think, although I may be paranoid because I paid all the money I had for this mattress and was really sick of my old one, that it has gotten more soft and more readily compresses in the middle, which is where I naturally lay the most. I really can't tell whether it's my imagination or whether it's true. In either case, the mattress works, it is very. very comfortable and I have no back pain. And many reviews say it's very hard -- not at all. It's not cushy and fluffy, because it's basically a thick flat sheet of latex on top of regular foam, but it's not rock hard at all. I am 5"1' 100 lbs. I really hope this mattress will work for a long time, only time will tell.
I looked long and hard for an affordable mattress that was firm and hopefully durable. Buying a mattress online is scary when all you have are descriptions and reviews from folks you don't know. My last Sealy Posturpedic cratered (literally) after about 7 years as did its predecessor. Im not a very big guy at 140 lbs, but I tend to sleep in only a couple of positions all night. I like a firm mattress, but reviews indicated this mattress to be too firm for some. So I bought a 2 memory foam topper to give it that extra cushiness while, hopefully, avoiding the feeling of sinking into quicksand. It worked out swell, but for another 75 bucks I may try the laxtex topper next time. Anyway, since a spinal cord injury 32 years ago, I must be careful of pressure points, but must be able to turn over easily when dressing in bed. Therefore, the right balance between softness and firmness is extremely important. Also transferring to a wheelchair requires reasonably firm edge support. This mattress and topper fit all my needs and, for about three months now, have given me the best sleep Ive had in years. Im hoping it holds up at least as long as the spring mattresses Ive owned. If so, I suppose you can't ask for much more at this price point. Oh and, I have not notice any toxic fumes and, as usual, Overstock did a great job by delivering it in one week.
THE PROCESS: Replacing our 15 year Spring Air (SA) "Four Seasons" cal-king mattress was a task my wife did not want me to undertake; however, I was beginning to have back pain, and a 100% latex mattress seemed to meet my needs, and the ECO our price point. Upon arrival, the UPS driver and I carried the box from his truck to our entry door. Unboxed, I rolled the mattress upstairs and placed it on top of our SA luxury wrapped steel box set. Unrolling the mattress from its plastic, I pulled the ever expanding roll back to bed center pushing each exposed layer of plastic underneath the mattress until it sprung open unfolding itself in 2 seconds (watch out) on the box set.
QUALITY: No odor, the mattress has a good quality side zipper cover. So extremely firm, even the top 2" soft layer is virtually unnoticeable. After 2 weeks sleeping much cooler on the latex than on our SA wool cover, my wife, a back sleeper, said she was very happy; for me, a side sleeper, I found my back pain had slipped away, but I began to awake with my arm(s) asleep. Unable to find a cal-king latex topper at O, I found a 2 soft latex bamboo cover topper for $249 shipped out of AZ - try searching latex bamboo topper. We have slept happily since 100% latex for under $1000.
My wife and I purchased this latex mattress after more than six months of on and off research. We were very worried that the mattress would be too firm as a few have complained or possibly roughed up by shipment (since you cant send it back). Fortunately for us, it arrived in pristine condition and rolled like a section of carpet. We cut thru the plastic vacuum wrap and within one minute our mattress had 'inflated' to full size. We waited an additional 24 hours for it to fully expand and then set in on the box spruce foundation in our king bed, and went to bed. It turned out to be firm but also offered great support and neither by my wife or I complained. On a scale of one to ten with one being a bed of plush pillows and ten being a lightly carpeted floor, I would rate the mattress a seven in firmness. It does 'indent' slightly but not like a memory foam mattress and you do sleep 'on it' rather than 'in it'. For us, it was just what we wanted. We are at the one month stage right now and so far everything is great. I ordered this mattress for our own bed and also two full size models as well for our toddler son and one of the guest bedrooms. Very happy so far and will post back at the one year mark to indicate how they are doing.
