I used to sell mattresses. I’ve never seen a mattress “melt” because of water or any other liquids. It will absorb it though and not puddle on the top, but it will not just suck in the liquid and fall apart or disappear. That is misinformation.

Um, we got a generic memory foam mattress, and that is definitely not true about water or liquids dissolving the material. Where did you hear that??

We had an Ikea memory foam mattress, it was great for about 8 months. Around that time the divets from out bodies started to form and it only took about couple more months for them to get bad enough that there was a literal hump in the middle of the mattress and by that time our warranty was up. We are both overweight, so I’m sure that’s a factor but it shouldn’t have given out as soon as it did.
We just replaced it with a Tempurpedic. Best decision ever. Find a mattress seller that offers a 100 night guarantee (you’ll have to buy a mattress cover which is about $90). If it doesn’t work than you can return it for something else!

Ikea makes memory foam mattresses?! We need a new one badly. We’re sleeping on my mattress from my first apt when I was 19. It was $150 from a mattress outlet and squeaked the first week I had it. Now, I’m 25, and oh we hate it. I’ll have to research this!

I didn’t know either until I looked. I’ve started looking for stuff at Ikea all the time now. 🙂
Thanks bees, this has all been really helpful! Keep the advice coming 🙂

We have had our Ikea memory foam for about 2.5 years. It has held up very well. We even bought a thicker memory foam pad for the top at BB&B and the bed feels amazing. No complaints here!

We don’t have a Ikea memory foam but got ours 3yr ago from overstock.com. Its still looks like new and is holding up very well. Not sure what the brand name is, we just read reviews and made our decision. Maybe check them out also.

This. But I’ve had mine for three years, and it’s held up great. I’ve also moved it in the rain, and spilled water on it, and no part of it has dissolved. It was definitely worth the price, and friends who have pet sat (pet sit? pet sitted? pet sat looks weird to me) for us have said it was super comfy to sleep on. It was less than or about three hundred dollars and worth it. Also, Ikea takes mattresses back within a month or two (I forget), so if you bring it home, sleep on it for a bit, and don’t like it you can exchange it for a new one. We bought a spring mattress initially, and it was awful for me (I sleep on my side).
