I am very comfortable on this bed for the first 30min to 1 hour (or so). During the night, though, I find myself sinking in. By morning, I feel like I’m in quicksand. This a medium firm queen size, pillow top. My suspicion is that the culprit is the pillow top feature that’s allowing me to sink in so much.
Unfortunately I’m going to have to return it because I’m waking up with back pain every morning, from about my mid-back to my glutes. It’s been 2 weeks and I’ve had enough.
When I sleep on my back, mu butt sinks in. When I sleep on my side it feels good but I wake up with rib & side pain.
I want to provide an informative review of my personal experience with this mattress, in hopes it will help others in their decision making. So I want to add that I noticed extensive SINKING after I broke in the mattress with the adjustable base. Because I sleep on this mattress alone, I only use one side; and that’s the side that’s sinking because that’s the side I sit in when I raise up the head with the adjustable base. I wondered if perhaps this model isn’t compatible w/the adjustable base but this website indicates it is. Oddly, the OTHER SIDE (that I don’t use) is still holding it’s shape & in the middle of the night, the last couple of days, I’ve pulled myself out of the side that feels like quicksand and rolled into the other side, which doesn’t sink as badly.
So I don’t know what happened here. I’ve never been able to tolerate pillow tops or mattresses that are not “firm” (this one is medium firm)... so I went against my better judgment in selecting a pillow top & medium firm because I laid in it for 30min at the store and liked it! So I took a chance.
Finally, I want to mention my body shape. I’m a 5’7” female and 215lbs. I read somewhere on this webpage that pillow tops aren’t generally designed to hold up 200+ lbs without sinking. So there’s another factor.
I’m sure this is a good mattress... just not for me!
