Memory Foam mattresses are becoming very popular. More and more people are getting rid of their innerspring mattress sets and moving to the new designs that are lighter in weight, easier on the body and offer a more comfortable night of sleep. Memory foam is designed to align with your body, cradle it, improve posture and help with lower back pain due to the support features of contouring to your body.

Product Features:

  • 10″ thick with 2.5″ memory foam comfort layer and 7.5″ polyurethane foam base
  • Air flow technology keeps the mattress cool and comfortable
  • Mattress conforms to weight and pressure
  • Foam is CertiPUR-US® certified
  • 25-year warranty

This mattress is super thick with a doughy like consistency that helps it to conform to the contours of your body. No matter what shape or size you are, a memory foam mattress will envelop you in cozy comfort while supporting your body where it needs it most. It helps keep your spine in alignment to ease lower back pain.

Memory foam mattresses are designed to fit on platform beds, meaning they need a solid base to rest upon instead of a metal bed frame with slats. You can purchase a platform bed separately if you do not have one. They come in many styles to fit almost any decor. Be sure to see our review of the South Shore Step One Collection Storage Platform Bed.

The majority of customers have been extremely pleased with their purchase of Memory Foam and rave about how good it feels and what a great night’s sleep they get. Some customers have complained about the mattress not springing back to a flat surface after they get out of bed. The biggest complaint is the odor of the mattress. Foam generally contains an odor which should go away after a while. You can spray it down with air freshener if this tends to bother you or doesn’t go away with regular use.

Here’s what some of the customers had to say:

  • “Best night’s sleep I’ve had in years. It’s well made and well packaged and there isn’t a huge odor that goes with it. I’d say if you’re sensitive to it air it out for 24 hours, but other than that you’ll have a great night’s sleep.”
  • “Once I cut the plastic and tape it came into form in just about 10 seconds and barely needed any rise time. The smell went away within a day.”
  • “Only two years after I had purchased it, the mattress started to sink badly in the center, to the point that I cannot sleep on it. There is a permanent “hole” in the center of the mattress.”
  • “It did take quite a while – about 10 days – for the smell of the foam to dissipate.”
  • The Lucid Memory Foam mattress has over six hundred 5-star reviews.

If you need a new bed for a guest room or you’re ready to trade in your old uncomfortable bed and try the new Memory Foam brands, this is a great buy at a great price. If you’re concerned about how it actually feels, you can test one out at a mattress store before purchasing online to save money.

Your mattress will arrive in a long box. This may concern you that a mattress will form out of this rolled up piece of foam. However, it will expand to its full size once it’s removed from the box and plastic wrap. This may take some time.
