This brand is highly recommended by Gholampour. Memory foam is a bit controversial — some people love it, some just can’t stand it — and it’s certainly not the most sustainable option. But if you love the feel of this material and are looking for a thin mattress, this could be the winner. It’s infused with a cooling gel that provides a restful night’s sleep, and has a true memory-foam feel that sinks into it. While again, not the most sustainable, the materials meet CertiPUR-US standards for performance, emissions and durability.
At 4.5 inches thick, this is a great choice for sofa bed, campers, or any tight spaces where a low-rise mattress is required. It’s lightweight and folds easily as well – and every time it’s opened, it bounces back into its full shape.
Another bed in a box, this mattress is compressed, rolled up, and shipped straight to your door. Depending on the size, it rings out at less than 20 pounds, so unpacking shouldn’t be too difficult. Simply take the box out of the box, unfold it (be careful not to puncture the mattress while unscrewing the cover!), and let it air out. You may need to wait 24 to 72 hours for it to fully dilate, and in a cold environment, this process may take longer. As with many other bed in a-box options, there may be a slight odor.
What customers say:
Over 2,000 Amazon reviewers give this rank five stars. Many bought it in exchange for a buggy, boat, or pull-out sofa, and were impressed with the balance of comfort and support. It’s not easy to find a comfortable mattress that makes a sofa bed look like a real bed, but this one gets the job done.
Echoing the sentiments of many rave reviews, one person says“Wow! I wasn’t really sure this would work any better than the original fluffy sofa bed mattress but for the price I thought it was worth a try. I’m 230lbs and can barely feel one of the bars in the bed. If I acclimate to a different situation I wouldn’t feel by rails at all, so I’m sure any company will find this quite comfortable. The bed is no longer more difficult to fall apart, the mattress easily squeezes and folds into the bed. I wouldn’t say firm is firm but it certainly isn’t as soft as some of the fluffy mattress toppers I’ve seen.”
