I don’t have an answer, but I really would like to hear the feedback too.

We’re moving soon and will be getting a new mattress then. We tested out some of the IKEA mattresses when at the store for something random and fell in love with one. But I just don’t know how they hold up over time. Hmm..

@atalante:  Lots of companies make generics of Memory Foam mattresses. What you want to look for is a mattress that is made out of Visco foam. That is the type of foam Tempur uses.  

Ikea’s foam mattresses are not solid Visco. They use only Visco on the top and then add in layers of other types of foam, so they do not feel or sleep the same way as a Tempur would.  However, I have heard that they stand up well for the first 2 years or so. It depends on how long you want the mattress to last.

I’m texting my friend right now what brand her new mattress is that she got from Macy’s. Obviously we don’t know about the wear and tear of it yet as she just had it delivered but wow. I’m totally in love with it. We may be copying her and getting the same bed. But if you have the time you may want to just go start laying on some of their beds and reading the reviews online.

I don’t know about Ikea, but I know if you get memory foam that isn’t Tempurpedic (like Macy’s), if you drop any water on it, the material of the mattress will just dissolve. I think thats weird lol.

They sell covers for the Macy’s mattress, which my friend bought. It’s like a fitted sheet that doesn’t allow any liquid to pass through, but doesn’t make any weird sound like some of those waterproof covers can.

I have an Ikea memory foam matress.  For the money I think it is worth it.  I plan on getting a better matress down the line, maybe in 5 or 10 years, but for the time being it is a good matress. I’ve had it for a year and a half, so I’m not sure how well it will hold up 5 or ten years from now.  But it is very comfy, much more than a spring matress.  I also bought a matress topper for it, which I suggest as it adds a little extra padding to it.  I think I paid around 200 or 300 for the matress and and extra 100 for the topper, so it was much cheaper than getting something from a ‘traditional’ furniture store.

@atalante:  I’m not sure about sweat! She just said “Make sure you dont drop any liquids in the bed otherwise the material will dissolve” She did tell us about the sheet that LilliKitty was talking about and I’m not sure how much it was. I just think its weird and would stick with Tempurpedic and pay the extra money.

@hopefloats:  That’s odd… I have other memory foam pillows and slippers that aren’t tempurpedic and they don’t with water.  I wonder why a mattress would be different.

My cousin and her husband have an Ikea mattress and I know they really like it for what it’s worth.

We have one and I like…enough. Okay, well, my problem is that Darling Husband loves a firm (FIRM) mattress and I’m more of a squishy, sink into it and be cocooned kind of mattress girl. So, I compromised. Because I know a firm mattress is better. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it (I can be such a little kid at times.)We did get a mattress topper with it (it came free, it was the IKEA mobile deal that month). AND, we don’t have a box spring. We’ve moved enough to know that box springs can be a pain to get into bedrooms. That could be part of the reason I don’t like it very much. I’m such a princess and the pea kind of girl 😉 As far as foam vs spring, I think this better.

So, we got our firm, foam IKEA mattress last August. And so far it’s been good. Sometimes it starts to sink a little, I feel like, but that could be because I always roll towards Darling Husband since he weighs more 😀 I’m 95% sure (without checking the reciept) that we got the Sultan Flokenes mattress with the Tarsta mattress pad.

I know ours has something like a 30 year warranty, as long as you’ve got the reciept. For an reason. We’ve got it tucked into the mattress cover (in a ziplock bag, just in case). Honestly, for what we paid, it’s not a bad mattress. Darling Husband didn’t want to buy a Tempurpedic because we were (are) poor and have lots of student loans. Someday when we get a house, I’ll probably make this our guest bedroom bed & get us a nicer mattress. Because then I’ll only have to have one size of sheets.

We bought an Ikea memory foam mattress last summer, we are both really happy with it. I am 37 weeks pregnant, and I sleep like a baby on it every night!
