    Rated 4.6 out of 5★ by 402reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Why did I wait so long to buy this? I read all the reviews on this mattress, as well as other memory foam mattresses since I have never had one, and it seemed to be getting mostly rave reviews, but I was still hesitant since you really need to lay on a mattress to see if it is comfortable for you.However I had it with my old mattress giving me backaches every morning, so I ordered my mattress online from Walmart.It only took about a week to arrive at my store, and the box for the california king foam mattress measures 19"x19"x37" and weighs 88 pounds, and fit easily by being laid down on the back seat of my 1994 Buick Regal, so there is no need to get a truck to move it, however if you have a hand truck or refrigerator dolly to roll it into the house, it will be much easier than to drag it along the driveway.The mattress is vacuum sealed which removes the air and therefore reduces the thickness of the mattress to about 4 inches, then they fold the mattress length ways onto itself, then the whole mattress is rolled up exactly like a big sleeping bag, that is how it fits into this 19x19x37" box.So once you get it into the bedroom, take it out of the box, remove the 6 layered heavy plastic wrap and retaining plastic straps which keep the mattress in its rolled up state, and carefully cut the plastic wraps from the mattress so it unfolds.Once you carefully cut vacuum sealed plastic from the mattress and allow air to enter the foam material, you will see in a matter of minutes that the mattress is rising to its ultimate height of 12", but it will take about 12 hours or more until the mattress firms up and feels solid enough to properly sleep on.Regarding the smell from the mattress, my bedroom only had a very faint smell like someone had been painting in the rear of the house, it was that slight, however I just opened the bedroom window, put a fan in the window screen, and let the room air out for the whole day, and I don't smell anything after about the first day at all, so there is no problem there.Now as for how the mattress performs, I am absolutely amazed on how much better I sleep, and I no longer wake up every morning with a backache from a sling shot conventional old mattress.I am 6"3 and 270 pounds, so I was concerned that I would sink into the mattress when I laid on it, however I only settled into the mattress maybe 1/8th of an inch, and it seems that my body is floating on a soft cloud, and the contours of my body are gently nestled onto the foam mattress which provides a superb sleeping vessel for me to finally get a good nights rest without having to constantly roll over all night long.In fact, since I have gotten this wonderful mattress, I don't wake up at night anymore like I used to do for the last 6 years, and even though it sounds weird, my dreams are more plentiful since I remember what I dreamt about when I wake up, along with feeling better rested than I have for many years.I tested out the other more expensive tempur pedic foam mattresses by laying on them in the furniture showrooms, and to be honest with you, I really don't feel any difference between my $450 dollar Walmart foam mattress, and the other name brand mattress that costs $4,000 dollars more, so I would have to ask the question, "Why spend more when you can't feel any difference between the products?"I am very happy with this mattress, and I can say that I will not buy a conventional spring type of mattress ever again since the foam mattresses provide me a superior sleep experience, a great value for the price and quality of the product, the protection of buying from Walmart, plus the mattress has a 20 year warranty.So now that you are all out of reasons to put off buying your new foam mattress from Walmart, why are you still sleeping on that worn out 8 year old spring mattress? 10/22/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Similiar to the Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme We tried a lot of beds in the mattress stores, but we did not want to spend $2500-$6900 on a mattress so we took a chance online. I researched every option and finally settled on this mattress because of its composition, bamboo cover, and cost. We bought a topper for it at the same time, but we actually returned it. The mattress was comfortable without it. While my husband and I don't feel like this mattress has "changed our life" like you hear some people say, we definitely do not feel the movement of each other as much at night and we sleep well. We were thoroughly impressed to know we spent $500 on this king size mattress which feels very similiar to the Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme($6900). We were also impressed at how quickly this mattress took its full shape, and it was true to measurements of a king size bed, and it really was 12" thick. It is not fancy, but it works...the smell is a little strong but after a week it tones down and Febreze does wonders. We definitely recommend this mattress and what's not to love about the price. Time will tell if it holds up, but the price is right! 12/23/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by GOD IS GOOD!!! Great Mattress Great PRICE!!! I had this item shipped to the store and I was able to fit it into the back of a PT Cruiser (Not a very big box). I suggest taking the plastic off on the platform bed. I did not wait the 24hrs before sleeping on it and that first nights sleep was not so great, but after the mattress completely expanded to what seemed like more than 12" the next nights sleep was out of this world great. I did not want to get up. I have arthritis in my neck so two nights later my neck started hurting again so I went out and spent the money on a memory foam pillow and now I have nothing more to complain about, except that I am always over sleeping and I have a hard time remembering fall asleep!!!!! This was the best investment ever... This is not a hard mattress nor is it to soft, it's just right! I am a little worried about whether or not this will really be cool in the summer. I have hot flashes and it will be more of an issue in the summer. So far so good! What more can I say...I love it! I will never go back to a traditional mattress. Oh!!! the smell was not so bad and it was gone after the first night. I did not put any sheets or anything on it until late that night and I opened the window and closed my room door to air it out. My opinion only, you will have to try it for yourself and don't forget to set your alarm!!!!!PRAISE HIM; With OUR LORD "IS" THE GLORY!!!!! GIVE THANKS ALWAYS! THANK YOU LORD FOR THE ABILITY TO SHARE! May this be a blessing for someone! 12/01/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good value This mattress was true to the description and very comfortable. There was no offensive odor and it was ready to sleep on in about 2 hours (although it continued to expand over the next 24 hours, it nearly filled the platform bed we purchased within the first 2 hours). The cover is very nice and for the price, it was an excellent investment. We purchased this one over the less expensive 12" mattress because of the 20 yr. warranty. 01/19/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Be patient, it will happen... I am 38 years old and in good health other than back problems. My husband and I were sleeping on a standard support mattress with two inexpensive foam pads on top. This was ok for the typical person without back problems but not so good for me. I had one of my patients tell me about the memory foam mattress he had purchased from Walmart so I started checking online on all of the options. I came across this one and all of the reviews spoke very highly of it. I decided to buy one in a queen size. I read of the smell and a couple of people talked about the first few nights of "getting used to it". I was prepared for a bad odor but it wasn't too bad. I have owned it now for about a month and it still has a little bit of a fragrance. It's not bad, just not a typical household smell. The other problem I read about was getting used to sleeping on a memory foam mattress. The first two nights were horrible! I was really regretting buying this online and not being able to return it. My husband was miserable too. He asked for a second pillow and he started sleeping fine. I finally folded up a towel to place under my pillow (a second pillow was too much for me). The other problem I had was that it had great support for the heavier parts of my body but my lower legs and feet didn't have enough weight to sink down and get support. I placed one 2" foam pad on top of my memory foam mattress and I started sleeping great too. I am a side sleeper and usually would toss and turn several times throughout the night trying to sleep so as to not get sore/pressure spots on my hips. I now find that I only turn a couple of times each night. My advice is if you're considering a memory foam mattress, consider purchasing this one but remember that it is somewhat firm which is great for the heavy parts of your body. If it bothers you, you can purchase an inexpensive 2" foam mattress pad for less than $20 and place on top and if your neck and upper body get sore on this mattress, consider adding more height to your pillow and this should fix the problem. I work in sleep medicine and understand the importance of a good night's sleep. Once you "customize" this memory foam mattress to your special needs, you'll sleep like a baby too! I'm definitely glad (now) that I made this purchase. PS--The smell is like damp, green, wood. If it bothers you, you can spray it with Fabreeze and it will soften the smell. Best wishes and good night! 05/17/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by King Memory Foam Mattress I did literally months of researching about memory foam online ( and as well as doing a lot of price comparisons (Sams, BJs, Amazon, etc). First off, I could not find a better price for the product that had a 20 year warranty. Delivery was prompt. King mattress was 70 lbs and vacuum sealed in the box, fit easily in the back of my suburban and would have fit in most trunks or backseats. It was a little awkward to handle - bring help if you ship to store. The bamboo cover is incredible. Ours fully inflated in about 36 hours. Very little, if any, odor. (The memory foam topper we had on our old mattress - purchased elsewhere - smelled for several days by comparison.) Because my wife and I are side sleepers, I would classify this mattress a little to the firm side of average: it's not hard, just a little firm. I nap on my back, which makes the "comfort fit" much better, so I'd expect back sleepers would absolutely love this. Overall, we are pleased with this mattress, although it has taken a while to adjust to the slight firmness. I'd purchase one again. :-) 09/07/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by My only regret is we waited so long. Our Contura III arrived at the store in 3 days. We'd needed a new mattress for a while but put it off because to get another queen mattress we would have to have taken the window out again in the turn of the steps, to bring it in from the outside on a ladder. So the shipping size of the Contura was a definite plus because it would fit up our narrow steps on the inside. When we unpacked it, it swelled to most of its queen size in less than an hour. Then the fun began! When I first tried it out, I was transported back to when I was a kid playing on my parents' bed... rolling..."swimming"... flopping ...back stroking...just having a "giddy-in-the-head" ball!! It is better than comfortable. It is luscious! We noticed the "heat thing" but it was nothing our regular air conditioner setting couldn't offset!! My husband has always bragged, he could "sleep anywhere," but everyday this man of few words marvels at how good sleeping on the new mattress is. My only regret is we waited so long. 09/16/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by A Good Deal I bought this product from after reading some reviews on it.What it is not:I remember one of the reviews said something like"Was very similar the Tempur-Pedic Cloud Supreme at $6,900"First I would like to say that the Cloud Supreme doesn't cost $6,900 it is more like $2,300 at queen-size.This mattress is not like the Tempur-Pedic Cloud, or the other Tempur-Pedics. It just doesn't have the same foam/feel.What this mattress is:The mattress is a very nice mattress on its own. I enjoy it very much, and would be as bold to pin it against any inner-spring mattress out there. There two layers of foam one memory foam, one normal foam. This would definitely be a good buy for somebody who has an inner-spring mattress now and hates it, or somebody who needs a mattress and doesn't want the risk of buying a "cheapie" mattress.Conclusion: If you are thinking you're buying a Tempur-Pedic for a cheap price , your not. However if you are considering buying a inner-spring replacement or just a nice new mattress, you won't be disappointed. 02/26/2011
