I owned a Sleep Number (Select Comfort Bed) that cost $3,500 and fell apart. I am big believer of paying for comfort. So when I started looking at Memory Foam Beds, of course I started with Temper-Pedic. But wasn't sure if I wanted to pay that much for another bed that fell apart. Found another company that was around $1,100 for a 12" MF. Was going to buy that one, but then I came across this bed.
At first, I wasn't sure if you could find comfort for $469 (what I paid for a Cal King) and was worried about the reviews that said it was very firm. But after reading all 900+ reviews, I thought if over 600+ of 900 gave it 4 or 5 starts, I had to try it. I figured if I hated it, I could return it to a store within 30 days. I also went over the manufacturers warranty, and I suggest you do as well. It guarantees a full five year warranty, if it fails to provide NORMAL wear and tear, they will REPLACE it. The factory is located in Pleasanton, CA. I also thought, if it did last atleast 5 years, I could afford a new one at that price.
So I got the mattress, delivered by Fedex today, opened the box and saw the mattress was rolled into a heavy duty bag, which was nice, because the box had some damage, but the mattress was fine. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT THE MATTRESS WHEN CUTTING THE BAG OFF, I read that in a review and it was great advice, I didn't cut it. I rolled it out, and did notice the smell everyone refers to. But I think the smell is just the Green Tea Charcoal they refer to. The mattress was at 10" within 10 min. And came to a full 12" within an hour. The cover first seemed loose, but once the bed fills out, it tightened up on it. I opened a window and turned on a fan to see if I could air out the mattress. It worked like a charm, within a couple hours the smell had already disapated to a very minor smell. Its not a harsh smell, I don't think I will mind it, if there is some lingering smell. But most of the reviews said it is gone withing 3 days. The bed it not white, it is a cream color. And the cover is very soft, it zips off for washing.
The mattress is beautiful and I noticed right away that I did not think it was firm at all. I normally sleep on a soft bed. Although, when I laid down, I noticed it does feel firmer that what I thought. But within minutes, it became soft and comfy, especially when I rolled to my side. I can't wait to sleep my first night on it. I think the longer you lay on it, the more comfortable it will be. The only negative I think I can find is that the edges do crush down, so I would advise not sitting on the edges. My cover and sheets fit great, although if you use a mattress pad/cover, it will take a little longer for your body heat to reach the MF and for it to mold to your body.
I do have a bad back, so I will let you know if it helps my back or not. In 30 days, I will write another review. I think you will love this mattress, don't let the negatives in the reviews talk you out of it. You will love it too!
