Perfect! I do wish I had gotten the 10 inch for the extra $60 but that is just because I bought a super cheap metal bed frame and need more support underneath. Still extremely comfortable! My old mattress with the same brand and I'm glad I stuck with nature's sleep. Can't beat a price like that for an amazing nights sleep
This was a replacement for an old original coil spring Murphy Bed Mattress and were limited to 8" thickness to allow folding into the wall unit. Mattress is remarkably comfortable, although a little hot in the morning hours. It is not too soft, as I feared. Overall, at $350, a tremendous bargain compared to more popular versions on the market.
I didn't know what to expect from an 8" memory foam mattresses and I'm actually pleasantly surprised. It arrived in a white box and I could pick it up off of the porch with no problem. It is about 50 lbs. I was also able to take this up the stairs to our guest room, one step at a time by myself (I'm female). It does say to team lift but it's not so heavy it can't be moved by one with caution. I'm sometimes a little too impatient to wait. I opened the box and flipped it over to aid in removing it from its outer package. After opening all the way I laid it out on the bed to fill out. I did leave it for 24 hours before using. It was replacing a 10 year old 10" memory foam mattress. It definitely was smaller as noted by my sheets but really remedied by the sheet corner holders. We've spent a few nights in the guest room to give it a try. I actually like it better than my traditional king size mattress but my husband does not. It's firmer than I thought it would be but the gel/foam layer on top, for me, provides plenty of comfort. You don't sink into mushy need but it conforms nicely to your body. It is too firm for my other half but he likes a very soft mattress. It does sleep cooler than the previous mattress that was on the bed, by far. I didn't find myself warm and was able to stay under my duvet just fine. Without a doubt it reaffirms my love of a memory foam mattresses.
I've purchased a number of "bed in a box" mattresses including Casper and this mattress compares on every level including comfort for a lower price.
The mattress comes in a box and is compressed and sealed in a plastic bag, rolled and placed into the box. When you open it, you'll need to remove the plastic and give the mattress about 24 hours to off gas and fully regain its full dimensions. It is important to allow it to sit for a while in the open so that the smell of the gel and memory foam have room to dissipate or you will smell it for a while when you lay on it the first couple of times.
The combination of Gel and Memory Foam make the mattress very supportive and comfortable. It cradles your body nicely supports you in whatever position you sleep in. I use tis mattress on a platform bed and the support is great. i haven't experienced any pinch points or areas where my body felt unsupported. Being able to allow your body to be supported uniformly leads to a more comfortable sleeping environment.
One thing I really appreciate about this bed is that it doesn't cause me to overheat. I've had straight memory foam mattresses in the past and they definitely feel hotter than this. The gel seems to be a little cooler so I don't feel like the parts of me in contact with the mattress are overheating.
The cover and construction of the mattress are very good. The seams and stitching are very well done and appear durable. The cover of the mattress is soft and fits well so there isn't a bunch of wrinkles or bunching under your sheets. This mattress runs to the firm side but not too firm ... but, firmness is in the experience of the sleeper I think but from my experience this is just about right.
You can spend a lot more on a mattress and not get better, I feel like you'll be happy with this mattress as a regular use or a guest bedroom choice.
This is the first time I have had a memory foam mattress and I'm getting longer uninterrupted sleep than ever. It's true that when some one else shifts in the bed it doesn't disturb the other. I can't feel my wife shift positions anymore in the night. The mattress came rolled in a box, and my wife was able to set it up by herself, It took a couple hours to completely expand but looked fine once it did. The change from traditional does take a little getting use to though, any time you get in or kneel on the bed to reach across it something seems off just because it doesn't react like what you may be use to.. When you first sit down the mattress does not spring like a traditional mattress you sink a little while it molds to you. The bed does seem cold at first when getting in but one in a couple mins it warms up to a comfortable sleep temperature pressure points do not seem to happen like a regular bed, making any position easy to sleep in, I wake up and my back hurts less, and no shoulder pain. I do recommend this for anyone looking for a good nights sleep. (One other thing I noticed, I use only one pillow now when I sleep two seems to make my head to high.)
(update 1 month later) some of the differences originally noticed are not noticeable anymore (expecting that spring when sitting down) The only other thing we have seen is even though the bed has grippers on the under side to stop it from sliding., about once or twice a week we have to realign it with the box spring it ends up being pushed to one side by about an inch. We think it may be from the dog jumping in that side of the bed burrowing under covers though as it doesn't see to shift from going to bed an d waking up)
