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....
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!
We ordered two of these for our kids. I had done some research to see if these were Memory Foam by using some key words from the description. My findings were inconclusive. I ordered them anyway. THEY ARE NOT memory foam or at least not like my tempur-pedic, but they are of good quality high density foam and perfect for kids. They arrived within four or five days. We are very happy with the purchase but wanted to save folks who are wondering if they are memory foam some time from doing research.
I purchased this mattress about a month ago and have had the best sleep since. The smell was a little strong at first but I let the mattress expand with the fan on for 72 hrs. And changing and washing the sheets a few nights into sleeping on it helps get rid of the smell fast. This is such an amazing mattress especially for the price! I went from a twin spring mattress that was old and worn out and wasn't sleeping through the night. But this mattress gives the best support for my back and neck that I don't want to wake up because I'm so comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend this mattress! And when you get it, let it expand and air out as soon as possible so you can see what a great night sleeps feels like!
1. mattress work on slatted bed base, aka platform beds.
2. all memory foam mattresses have a smell when first unrolled, mine dissipated after two days. i did not sleep on it the first night, i just let it breathe and expand.
3. i would only think that a thicker layer of memory foam would be more comfy for my preference. note that the memory foam only makes up the top layer of the mattress so the preferred thickness of the memory foam should be something you consider because they are all different.
4. that being said, since i got this mattress, i have not woken up with any backaches.
5. keep in mind that memory foam mattresses are WARMER than traditional inner spring because the foam touches every inch of your body therefore reducing the air circulation around you.
this mattress is WONDERFUL! perfect firmness, very well made (in the USA, no less!) unfurls from the sturdy plastic packaging like magic. i'm sorry i did not think first to shop online for a non memory foam mattress....just TRY to find one in any mattress store; impossible. my first night sleeping on it was interrupted only by a recurring thought: must write terrific review! thanks...
I have bought a few memory mattresses in the past and I like this one the best. I had a hard time deciding on the firmness level, but after reading the reviews we bought the soft one and feel we made a great choice, as my boyfriend and I really love the way it feels and the firmness level. We wanted support but a soft feel at the same time, and that's what we got; hard to explain the firmness level without actually laying on it, but it's soft at the top while you feel the support underneath, so you don't sink too deep, just a little bit to relieve the pressure points and then you feel the firmer support below which I think is perfect. We had the biopedic before (also sold on overstock) and really liked it but wished for something just a little softer and this one is exactly it, as it's just a tad softer then biopedic, and thinner which we also wanted as it's easier to move and put the sheets on; the biopedic was heavier and more difficult to lift the corners to put the sheets on. We have a platform bed and feel that the extra height doesn't improve the comfort level only makes it heavier. I like that it's only 9" or actually a little less, what really matters is what's on top, and 3" of 4 pound memory foam are great and hard to find in the cheaper mattresses which this one is, most other ones are either only 2" or less denser foam. We are both rather slim people so maybe if someone is much heavier, they may sink deeper but can't imagine even then sinking to more then comfortable level of a few inches. The soft is not hard at all, it's only slightly firm underneath which is good, but the surface is nice and soft, of course like with all memory foam, you have to lay down on it to appreciate it, when you first touch it it may seem firmer then regular pillow top mattress, but it's actually as soft just in a different way, feels like a cloud with a nice support below, love it!
