I purchased this mattress as a gift. The innitial ad. for this mattress lead me to believe that it was solid memory foam through and through. Once completely to size (48 hrs) I could see that the mattress was one piece of Memory Foam 2.5 inches fused together with a soft but firm base foam. Very comfortable but not what I had expected. I spoke with customer service that evening via live chat. A man named Richie helped me, he could not have been more fantasic. He was empathetic to my concerns, he made me feel valued and he followed through with having a rep. call me the next morning. A gentleman named David called me, he handled my situation with great professionalism, honesty and absolutely did right by me. I will buy from Overstock.com forever! They are fast, honest and priced to sell! I have made 5 purchases since and have told all my friends and family how great they are! They continue to impress me with each order. This mattress is well made, very little odor (almost none now 1 week later) and firm yet soft with a well made zip on cover. This is a great deal and good quality, a great company to do business with. If you have any concerns, call them before ordering, they will answer all your questions! They are a great company!
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.
After letting the bed fully rise (24-48 hours), I was easily able to move it without assistance. This bed is very comfortable, firm at first, then your body weight sinks into the memory foam for a comfortable night's sleep. As a professed "bargain shopper," I knew I needed not only a great mattress but at a great value. This met both those requirements and I'm more than happy with my purchase! Along with this mattress, I also purchased the "DuraBed Full-size Steel Foldable Platform Bed" and both items work well together, no additional mattress support (such as a boxspring) was needed.
I purchased this mattress almost two years ago, and it has held up well. The mattress doesn't really get softer with age, but since it's already soft to begin with, that's actually a plus.
This mattress does a great job of molding to your body, and providing comfort. Whenever I stay at my girlfriend's apartment, and I sleep on her "regular" mattress, I don't even get close to the same level of comfort that this mattress provides. There's many a morning where I don't want to get out of bed, because this mattress is so comfortable.
Also, if there's any "extra" activities that happen on this mattress, it doesn't provide the "bounce back" that a traditional mattress provides - could be a good or bad thing, depending upon your style of "activities". It does provide a stealth mode for those "activities" though....provided your significant other is also in silent mode.
I haven't slept on any other memory foam mattress besides this one, so I can't really comment on the level of cooling it provides. I will say that I require an AC unit when the summer heat hits - this mattress does too good of a job of trapping your body heat. In the winter time however, I welcome the mattress's heat absorption properties.
Overall though, a solid purchase. I would recommend this mattress to a friend.
It took a bit to reach the full thickness but it finally puffed up to 10 inches. It is really nice. Nice cover. It is firm but soft on top, not plush soft. I need a firm foundation so I need to be straight when sleeping and this mattress does that. It still has a bit of a smell, even after a month.
