UPDATED: almost three years later and I am still in love with this mattress! A lot of mattresses gets dips in them where you sleep, not this one. It still looks brand new. Now, I definitely recommend getting a memory foam topper to put on top, that's what we have and it's like a little nest. We sleep amazingly every night. I would also recommend getting "firm" so that it lasts a long time. With the topper it won't matter that it's firm because you will be cradled in comfort! Go for it, it's worth it and so much cheaper than other mattresses that aren't as good. I ordered this a week ago. It weighs 115 pounds so it definitely takes two people to bring it inside and set up. It is vacuum packed and rolled into a bag making it hard to believe that it's actually a king size mattress but it is. You can remove the outer bag but then get it on the bed before you remove the outer plastic. There are two sets of plastic, the first one is what keeps it rolled up, once it's removed it will start to expand a little but you have time to get it adjusted and in the correct position before removing the second/final plastic bag/wrap. Once it's removed there is no moving it, too heavy. It expands quickly and we only waited 8 hours before sleeping on it and it was fully expanded. Now, about the smell, yes there is a chemical smell, however I feel that some of the other reviewers were a bit dramatic. It's not that bad and with each passing hour it lessens in intensity. By the end of two days it was no longer noticeable at all. This mattress is excellent quality, and solid. I have laid on *********** beds before and I have to say this one feels just as good. I can't speak to the longevity yet since I've only had it a week, maybe that's the difference in price? Don't know. I will tell you that we purchased a "soft" mattress and it is still quite firm, it has softened a bit each night but it is still very firm. I only weigh 120 so that may have something to do with it my husband weighs 175 and says it's fine for him. It was a little too firm for my liking so I purchased a ********** 3-inch Sculpted Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper also from overstock and man oh man does that make a difference! It gives me the cushion and support I need for my lower back. This mattress and topper is unreal! I will tell you that with the 14 inch mattress and 3 inch topper plus mattress protector and sheets it's a good 18 inches. Make sure you have deep pocket sheets and big comforter. I'm short so I practically need a ladder to climb into bed LOL! My husband has back problems and this mattress seems to be helping. When one person moves or gets up there is very little transference of motion/movement which is nice, I'm a light sleeper. It's not bouncy at all like a spring mattress, it's solid and absorbs all impact. I can't say enough how impressed I am with this mattress and topper, best $$$ I've ever spent. I still can't believe I got it at Overstock. Who buys a mattress from Overstock.com??? I do!!! You will be pleased. I figure the mattress topper will give my mattress longer life and even if I have to buy a new topper each year, that's still way cheaper than spending $$$$ on a bed with those other guys that advertise on TV all the time. I couldn't be happier, and I am considering buying another one for our guest room.
I ordered Ivory, and it's a nice, soft white. The finished look is beautiful. I added this to an 18-inch frame that came with headboard brackets. The two work well together, and it finishes off the room nicely. Easy to assemble and nice high-end look.
This mattress is perfect! I get a good night sleep. Goes perfect with the 18 inch high profile SmartBase platform bed frame. I love it, highly recommended.
That’s right! From unboxing to fully expanded like a block of soft cheese 12 inches all around. I’m 6” 290lbs. I sink a little bit into the mattress top then come into contact with a firmer base and all is well. I’ve owned four like beds over the past 10 years and this is the fastest and most comfortable.
