I did a lot of research to find a good memory foam mattress. There was no way I was going to spend $2000 on Tempurpedic, and Overstock had a really good, wide selection of memory foam to choose from. I went with the Comfort Dreams because of the "Select A Firmness" option - I really wanted to make sure the bed would not be too soft. I selected the 9 inch based on online research about other brands, and selected the firmest option available. I compared the description with the description of other memory foam mattresses - I even quizzed a guy at Sleepy's to make sure I was getting something comparable! I am really delighted with the mattress. I've had it for more than a year now, and its firmness has not changed at all. It's super comfortable, and friends who have tried it have all commented on how nice my bed is. I say it's like sleeping on a marshmallow. If you're looking for something rock hard, this is not your mattress. This mattress is not as responsive as a Tempurpedic - you're not going to see the very isolated hand print they advertise - but having tried a Tempurpedic, I can say that the difference is irrelevant. The mattress is supportive, has no hot/cold issues, and definitely inspires a restful night's sleep! Overstock delivered the mattress in a roll, which is very convenient for maneuvering a mattress in a tiny apartment! I got the mattress around 7PM, unrolled it on a bed frame (NOTE: get a bunkie board to support the mattress, or buy more slats to push together - that's what I did), and left it alone to "rise" for about 5 hours. After that 5 hours, the bed was very ready to be slept on. There was no offensive odor after the initial unpacking, but I was careful to have good airflow while I was unpacking and letting it rise. The only minor downside is that the corners are easily squashed when sitting to put on shoes or something, but I put on shoes every day and I'm never bothered! If I were to buy a new mattress, I would purchase this again. Considering the quality, the price is really unbeatable.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's very hard to tell about a mattress from a website, but Overstock did a pretty good job.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The mattress is excellent.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate - again, it's a subjective purchase, but Overstock provided good details.
