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.
Number 1 tip: Do your research! After reading up on the proper density, weight, and topper I should get when buying a memory foam mattress, I thought I knew exactly what I should get. All my life I've loved softer beds, the ones you really sink into, but as a side sleeper, I learned that's pretty terrible for your back. With that in mind, I decided to order this bed with a Medium level of firmness. I have to say, it's pretty perfect. If I were looking for a rock solid firm bed I would be highly disappointed. When I lay on this bed I feel like I sink in slightly more than any other memory foam mattress I've tried but in an advantageous way. Every contour of my body is cradled and supported. My boyfriend, who has terrible back issues, also says he sleeps much more soundly now. If you're thinking about buying this bed, I'd keep in mind the level of softness is probably one level more soft than it says--meaning what you think is Medium is Soft, what you think is Firm is Medium, and so on.
The gel top does it magic and I'm not left burning up from the trapped heat. I'm a 5'5'' average build woman and alone was able to get this mattress upstairs by myself, though I don't recommend it. When you open it be mindful if you can open it on your frame/platform, do so. Moving this sucker is a task because it is heavy and it is like moving a blob. There is a slight smell of chemical/plastic but it is truly very faint. I let it air out during the day, sprayed some Febreeze, and slept on it that night (which is sooner than they recommend but I didn't have any problems.)
I'm glad I stuck with a 12" deep too simply because I didn't have to buy all new sheets or be limited to the "deep pocket" sheets when buying new ones. Something I didn't think about when I bought it but glad it worked out!
Overall I'm pleased I did my research on what I should buy and that I read the reviews on this mattress. I thought it was weird to roll the dice and buy a bed I've never seen in person but it's worth the gamble. I sleep more solid than I think I ever have. The boyfriend, the dog, and the cat even approve! I know because one of them is always on the bed.
Oh and be aware, mine was delivered in what looked like a body bag. It showed up on my porch on Halloween too. At least no one thought anything of it.
This is a great bed. I am a very cautious buyer. I shop and shop until I find what I hope will be the best. The delivery was a little late but no big deal. We did open it as soon as my husband and I got it. We aired it out for a couple of days. No odor though like other people have experienced but we did it anyway. It was really cool how it came though. Vacuumed packed. It made it easier to manuver around. But look out when you cut the vacuum packed raping. It expands quick. Anyway, my husband and I LOVE it. We have another memory foam queen size bed in our spare room but it doesn't have the gel in it so in the summer it gets kind of warm. But overall, we appsolutely love it. Firmer than I'm used to but I think it's going to be better for me for my back. My husband loves it too for the support. The first night we slept on it he never woke one time during the night. Our cat Gizzy, he loves it too. Great bed, I'm very glad I took my time to find it and finally buy it. I will recommend it for sure.
Bare with the long review.. hope to answer all questions.
I bought this mattress to replace my old foam mattress purchased in 2006, that lasted about 6 years (had to use foam pillows beneath for last 2 yrs.). I bought a firm, just below the firmest and I am happy for it. I can tell the difference but not from discomfort, (recommend firm for back/hip troubles). My spine and neck and hips, are a mess. I was surprised that I could sleep after unpacking because of bursitis, arthritis/fibromyalgia in mostly hip area. My hips locked up (own fault) after unpacking the mattress myself, but I couldn't sleep on old foam only mattress, one more night!
Even though it's a Firm and I was on a walker to get around, the first night I slept on it, I didn't think I'd sleep. I even woke on my back, thinking, oh darn, I'm in trouble, or would have been (normally). Slept through the night for 5 nights even though my hips were locked up and lower back hurting. I intentionally slept on the worst hip and I fell asleep with no pain, so quickly, if not for the clock, I'd wonder if I'd slept at all!.
The cool gel foam, though firm, caused no heat spots or pain, even though I should have had some discomfort. No more trying to pull myself out of a cavern I'd sunken into (I am about 45 lbs, overweight). The outside cover is nice and well made, a mole skin type fabric on lower side and a nice stretchy and well vented top and upper half, held together with nice braiding, where the two meet. No hot spots, woke on back (almost always now) and firmness is an absolute wonder. And being in considerable pain when going to bed, the first 4 nights.. Mercy. It's a wonder to have such comfort, even with a painful spine and hips. I healed up twice as fast as I would have, in the past from the fibromyalgia attack. I have only a little stiffness left after a week, when normally it's 2-3 weeks.
Can't recommend enough for spinal, hip and other sleep issues. I added two cool gel bubble/foam pillows (separate review) that I'm sure made my sleep comfort even better. I know it did. I hope this helps, those in need!
If you have been on a traditional mattress, pillow top, etc...you will not like it when you first lie down. It is flat and hard. Trust me though and give it a few minutes under the covers. As you warm it up you begin to really see what is happening and will love it. If you have back, hip or neck problems this is the bed for you. Slept on one for a few weeks on vacation and swore I was going to hate it. Got home to my *** , 14" therapeutic pillow top and was misserable. Ordered this and slept perfect without pain. I have pins in my pelvis, 3 level fusion in lower back and messed up neck. I have Zero discomfort in the mornings and sleep like a baby
Came in 2 boxes. It had been rainy but the boxes were tied up in a plastic bag which saved them from being drenched. The only assembly was fastening nuts to tighten and 2 bolts to attach the 2 half frames together. Didn't need tools. Mattress good quality and super comfy. I got the 10 inch Full size. Recommend!
At 62 yo -- I had a regular double bed, with box/mattress. A few years ago, I began putting foam on top of it -- probably had 3 different. 2" - 3" and a 4". I felt like I was on a cloud --- loved it. It is now time to upgrade the bed, and decided to get rid of the mattress and toppers and go with the 14" mattress (on the box). Ordered and received this ---- gave the older stuff to a friend -- opened the package - layed it on the bed - and within 1 minute it was fully inflated! I slept on it 16 hours later -- what a difference. After 3 days I am still getting used to sleeping on it, as this mattress is totally uniform (which all the others were not). a couple more days and it will be perfect.
I would suggest anyone considering this mattress be very positive on what comfort you want/need - soft - medium or firm. Because I was not familiar with 'real' foam mattresses I was not expecting the quality I got. I usually like a softer mattress, but I ordered the medium. What I got was a true medium. So, I believe this is why I am still getting used to it. I will keep this, and will suggest this to a couple of friends. But really wish I would have gotten the soft one.
Box arrived...about the size of a waste basket. Within ten minutes we had a beautiful king sized mattress. I was pleased to find sturdy edges and a very nice cover. The directions said allow several hours but my mattress looked perfectly shaped within minutes. I chose the foam to help with sciatica that wakes me up several times at night. Have been sleeping comfortably now for several weeks. The mattress feels very firm but very comfortable. I even notice that I can sleep on my stomach with no arched back. My old box springs still looked and felt very nice and secure, so am using that as a platform. I am so pleased to have found and purchased this mattress!
I was a bit skeptical about this mattress because the price was relatively low compared to other memory foam mattresses, but I slept on a friends' mattress while visiting and they said to check Overstock for the brand. Boy, I wish I knew about this sooner! When my husband and I moved in together we bought a new mattress from a store in town. It was a good deal - cost about the same as this foam mattress, but was an innerspring - and was comfortable but it started to dent and sag after only 8 months! This mattress is far more comfortable than the innerspring we bough last year. We both liked very firm innerspring mattresses, however we found ourselves preferring this memory foam mattress even though it gives a bit when you lie on it. There is still a substantial amount of support, but you do sink in just a little. It kind of feels like sleeping on a marshmallow. There is far less bouncing when the other person moves around, which only contributes to the quality of our sleep. My husband is a warm sleeper, so much so that we usually run the ceiling fan during all 4 seasons, but he has said he's not too hot sleeping on this mattress. We both have noted an improvement in sore backs and necks, I was actually able to get rid of one of my pillows. I really cannot recommend this mattress enough!
In fact, my only complaint is that the mattress is so comfortable, I'm having a hard time getting up with my alarm in the morning because I just want to stay in my amazingly comfortable bed as long as possible.
Like most people I was hesitant to buy a new mattress without having the opportunity to test it out 1st, especially knowing that it couldn't be returned. However after comparing prices at my various local mattress dealers I decided that the cost of the Slumber Solutions was worth the risk. I wasn't disappointed! This was a replacement for my daughters bed and she LOVES it! She was complaining that her old mattress was harder than the floor and she wanted a soft mattress. I bought her the soft option which is perfect. I was worried that it would be too soft but its actually VERY comfortable. You can't beat this bed for the money. It's a great bed at any price. I would definitely recommend it.
I ordered the King size medium/10" thickness mattress. It was delivered in a 4x2' roll, COMPLETELY vacuum compressed. I was shocked and wasn't sure how it would decompress. No worries, it did just fine within minutes, I DO recommend having two people unpack and set it, it can be a handful to maneuver since it's decompressing as you're unwrapping it. The first few weeks it's quite stiff and almost uncomfortable, not to worry it is just breaking in (as I told myself night after night). It's unbelievably plush and comfortable now, worth double what I paid I honestly think. Conventional wisdom says not to use it for 24hrs for both the smell (use a fan/open a few windows) and to let it fully "inflate." I couldn't wait that long and had no problems. The smell was a non-issue to me, and it had "inflated" completely within minutes of unpacking. Buy with confidence.
I looked at another mattress first, but every review said it needed an additional mattress topper to soften the hard mattress.....
Anyway I kept looking and found this mattress and EVERY review for this mattress had a 5 star rating, based on that I chose this mattress....
I am glad I did! I have Fibromyalgia and the mattress wasn't too soft nor was it too hard, it was just perfect.... I have absolutely NO regrets!!
I just wish I could give it 10 stars, that's how truly happy I am with my purchase 💕
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 mattress to replace the very soft and comfortable old mattress that my 96 yr old mother was use to. Hoping she would not reject it saying it was too firm, she sleeps better than she ever has. Also, the pain in her back has subsided, substantially
The mattress is definitely more like 3-1/2 inches thick. It is dense, but I added a foam pad and mattress pad to get a little more comfort. It is for my 4 year old, so being firm isn't that big of a deal. I only had an 8" clearance to work with under the bunk set, so this worked out perfectly with the low-profile roll out trundle frame I purchased with it.
I was very apprehensive about buying this online without testing it out in a store. however, when I received the mattress my wife and I were impressed. I ordered the soft version because I read the online comments about the medium one being a bit hard. but the soft one I received is truly soft. at first I thought it was too soft, but after waiting a few hours for it to fully inflate, it is perfect.
I have a tempur-pedic which I spent over $2,000 for and this one is just as comfortable. I'm telling all my friends about it.
We have had this mattress/foundation since March, and we have been very happy with it. It has kept it's shape, and both my husband and I weigh around 200 lbs. I really feel like I have gotten a better night's sleep with this mattress and don't feel like I toss and turn as much as I used to. Happy customer right here!
I did very thorough research for months before I made my purchase. I read all the reviews and no one really had anything bad to say. This is the most comfortable mattress I've ever owned. I thought it might be too high for my bed, but it's perfect. The foundation was very easy to assemble. It took about ten minutes. Some people spoke of the mattress having an odor and some did not. My mattress did have a factory like odor for about a week or two, but nothing unbearable. I have two friends in the market for a mattress and I highly recommended this one.
We own a Honda Pilot which has a 48X78 cargo area when both sets of rear seats are folded down so we purchased two 24" wide mattresses so we could sleep in the back on some upcoming road trips. When we tested the mattresses we were both surprised at how comfortable they were! Can't wait to hit the road!
This mattress is wonderful for the price. It is much more firm than a traditional memory foam, but the firmness only lasts unitl you settle into the bed. Once it contours around you it feels great. I used to always wake up in the middle of the night, but I haven't since buying this mattress. No pressure points. 6 inches might seem small, but it fit perfectly into my full sized bed frame, without a box spring. I think the firmness compensates for the lack of thickness. Either way, you are not going to get a better mattress for the price. My parents bought a similiar one that was 10" and I cannot tell a difference. There's cost $200 more.
Good for person with back pain and good quality mattress. Highly recommend any one with back pain. Came on time in good packaging. No odor or smell so we used it after 24 hours. Better price at overstock then other retailer and online seller.
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.
And I'm so glad they didn't! This is the best bed I've ever slept on. It is so comfortable and not too soft or too memory foam ish. I just moved so the packaging was perfect- so easy to transport and I opened it and let it return to its size. It's so hard to get up in the morning. I was told I was crazy for buying a mattress online but for the price, quality and shipping speed I am so happy I found this one!
This bed is perfect for my teens...absolutely comfortable. Bought 2 of them...will purchase more in the future! Unbelievable that it came in such a small bag and expanded to bed as soon as the plastic was opened...I recommend this bed to everyone!
We purchased this mattress for my toddlers room. It arrived tightly rolled up and expanded immediately. Because of other reviews we took extra precaution in wiping down the plastic cover thoroughly so there wasn't a problem with any dirt on the actual matress. It was really clean though allready. We were also preparing for a chemical odor due to other reviews, but we were happily surprised that there really was no odor. We did not need to air out the mattress at all. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I find this to be a firm firm matress not a medium firm. But a very firm mattress without springs is very different than a traditional firm mattress. It is still very comfortable! Also you really do need to purchase an extra padded cover as there is no provided cover for this particular matress. I bought a 3" padded matress pad that is working well. My son is sleeping better and that was what we really needed!! I wish I bought this sooner.
After reading other reviews on this mattress, I took the advise of 1) unboxing it in the room and 2) propping it against an open window for one overnight to eliminate the odor; both excellent suggestions. The mattress is all you could want for comfort and design. As it is new, I cannot give any hints to longevity, only to a much better sleep and night.
This mattress is exactly what i was looking for and the price is right! First off, I want to point out that this mattress is not memory foam. I don't want people to be confused from other reviews stating that it's memory foam because it isn't. The description does not state memory foam, It is made from "regular" foam. So if you're looking for memory foam this isn't it.....
I have back/neck problems the past few years and it was high time for a mattress upgrade. I wanted to make sure the bed was firm enough that the middle won't sag & sink in under my weight, but it's hard for me to get good sleep on a firm mattresses due to pressure point pain. Being primarily a side sleeper who likes soft fluffy beds, i get uncomfortable if the mattress is really firm. Although I LOOOVE sinking into a soft & squishy bed, it seems that my spine does not. So i decided to make myself get used to sleeping on a firm bed in order to try to fix my aching back. I had already purchased a relatively soft but supportive 2" natural latex topper a few weeks prior, but found that i really needed a good base for it. The hunt began for a nice solid, firm mattress to replace the very thin ikea foam mattress i bought a few years ago.
After a few weeks of research i decided on this mattress. I didn't want a potentially squeaky inner spring and because i have a topper already I wasn't looking for a memory foam or latex bed. This seemed like a good option. Despite only 2 reviews on this particular mattress at the time, there were many other positive reviews for the "firm" version. So i took the plunge and ordered. It showed up at my doorstep in only 3 days. Out of the box it was very easy to get to my room, and once the package was opened the mattress immediately inflated. It was at full size in no time. I initially detected hardly any odor, and once inside my mattress protector there has been absolutely no detectable smell. I took a quick power nap on it the day it arrived and was pleasantly surprised at the comfort level. I purchased it knowing i would put my topper on it & i wasn't going to be sleeping directly on the mattress, but i have to say that for a firm mattress I actually quite like the feel of it. I'd say it is firm but not hard-as-a-rock on top. (The reviews for this mattress in the "firm" version seem to indicate that it is more like "very firm". So i figured this "medium/firm" would be a perfect firmness, and I think it is.) Personally I much prefer the feel of this foam mattress to memory foam, which reminds me of sinking into mud. I slept on a 4" thick, 4lb. memory foam topper for several years but got sick of the feel of it & oh how it made me sweat at night....
I can't speak for long-term longevity as it's only been about 2 weeks, but it seems really well made and i'm sleeping good. These days it seems that even expensive mattresses wear out quick and the consumer complaints online are numerous. My online research into mattress warranties and customer complaints definitely scared me out of spending more on a big name brand. They don't make 'em like they used to and the warranties are a joke, so why spend more $?
My husband and I have an iComfort as our primary bed but due to work I had to move away and needed a bed. I was hesitant to buy one online because when it came to our iComfort, the one we wanted was not the one we chose after going to the store and laying on it. I am a side/back sleeper and my hips can't handle spring mattresses anymore. The mattress was delivered a day early and the box weighed about 85lbs. I was able to get it up stairs by myself but if you have a two story I highly recommend getting another person to help you. The mattress is vacuum sealed and compacted so when it comes out of the box it looks like a shadow of the mattress it's supposed to be but within a few hours of taking it out of the packaging it had fluffed up to it's intended 12 inches. There's a slight memory foam scent to it, but it didn't bother me. If you are sensitive to smells it might bother you but just let it air out and it'll be fine. I suggest unpacking it where it's going to go because letting it fluff and air out somewhere other than where it's going to be placed and then moving it would definitely be a pain. I slept on it the first night I had it (I refused to sleep on the floor) and the mattress just cradled me. So I've only slept on it twice but already I'm super happy with my purchase. I took the sheets off it yesterday to let it continue to air out and on the second night I had no "odor" issues at all. I don't feel the need to roll around all night long to find a comfortable spot, I wake up totally refreshed and once my body finds that comfortable spot I seem to just stay there. For the price this mattress is definitely awesome, I can tell you that my king iComfort cost 6x as much as this bed and they are both ***. I will probably never go back to a mattress store ever again knowing how cheap they can be gotten online. Once I've owned this a little bit longer I'll see if I can come back and update my review. Happy mattress hunting.
I was hesitant to buy a mattress online, but the price was right so I went for it. My husband and I LOVE this mattress, it is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Great purchase- would recommend to anyone who wants a memory foam without paying a fortune.
We purchased this mattress for our 3 year old daughter. We got firm like our other two mattresses (King and Queen) but it does seem a little softer than those) and our daughter sleeps very well on the mattress.
