i bought this bed and the folding platform frame for my 86 year old mom and she just loved it she has told me it is the most comfortable bed she has slept on and we got rid of an sealy that she had for many many years . i would recomend this to anyone looking for a good price and good sleep . A+++++
I love this mattress. I have a bad back, and now I fall asleep all the time in this! Sometimes it sucks me back in, lol! If I had to complain, I would say it doesnt fit on my old box spring, about 2" bigger than box spring. Box spring is a Sealy. I guess I will have to buy a Platform bed frame (wink, wink) lol! Hey Overstock got any Platform beds?!?
I was somewhat familiar with this type of mattress prior to purchase. I had tested similar products in stores and determined that memory foam was for me. The Comfort Dreams mattress satisfies my requirement for medium firmness, support and comfort. First, I applaud Overstock.com for its order and delivery efficiency. The product arrived at my home in only a few days and was sufficiently wrapped to protect it. This was my first order from Overstock and I will use this site again. Unlike other reviewers who noted that the mattress was easy to carry from the front door to the bedroom, I found it to be too heavy to manage on my own. I am a 63-year-old female, 5'4", and generally fit, but the mattress was fairly heavy and my husband had to lift it on the bed. No big issue, just an observation. I didn't have to purchase a separate platform; I simply use my current box spring. My only complaint is that even after more than a month of use, the odor of the foam material is still present. I aired out the mattress for a day before using it (the recommendation from the manufacturer is 72 hours) but found the odor too intense. I then waited another day or two before attempting to sleep on it. I found that the pad and sheets absorbed the odor of the foam and I had to rewash the bedding after a few days. The smell is less noticeable after about five weeks, but it's still there. This may be an issue for people who are highly sensitive to odors. I'm one of those people. By contrast, my husband says this is not an issue for him. I purchased a medium firm mattress. For comfort, I would rate it as an 8 out of 10, much better than my old Sealy. I also appreciate the fact that there is little noticeable movement when my sleeping partner rolls over. I haven't noticed the heat factor either. Some have commented that foam can be uncomfortably hot; this is not an issue for me even though I live in a tropical climate. As for value, it will be interesting to see how the mattress holds up after a couple years. All I can say now is that with the relatively low price and above-average comfort, it appears to have been a good purchase.
I knew I wanted to buy a memory foam mattress, either Serta or Sealy. This review is more about my purchasing experience. I went to a local store. They didn't carry Serta. They tried to sell me something else. I returned home and took the plunge. This was an excellent price on the mattress that was exactly what I wanted, no smarmy salesperson, no tax, free shipping. The mattress arrived via UPS vacuum packed. I am a small fit female over 50. I was able to unpack and set it up myself. Excellent easy to follow instructions. Put it on the platform bed, cut the seal on the plastic packaging, and the whole thing just unfolded. I will probably never buy a mattress in a store again!
