- Wedding: September 2017 - River Museum & Aquarium
My parents got my brother a queen size mattress in a box from Wal-Mart for college. He actually loves it. It has held up well for the past 4 years, definitely a good option for a guest room I would say.

I have a YogaBed and I love it. The cover material zips off for easy cleaning too, which is nice. Memory foam beds do tend to sleep hotter than traditional matresses though so just something to be aware of.

soontobemrs1011 : We got a Casper (queen size). It took a little getting used to but we love it now. Delivery was pretty quick, the hardest part was getting it into the house because it rained the day we got it so the box got wet. Fortunately the plastic was sealed well and the mattress wasn’t wet at all.

soontobemrs1011 : We just got our queen size Loom and Leaf mattress yesterday! It was really comfortable to sleep on last night, and we’re so happy with it so far. Definitely a different feel than a regular coil mattress, and sort of grippy, but I like that. Of course, I figure it’ll take a few weeks at least to really get a good sense that it is truly as comfortable as it feels initially, but I’m pretty optimistic since it has great reviews. We were looking at other memory foam mattresses that ship in boxes such as Casper and Endy (based in Canada), but then read about Loom & Leaf which is made from mostly plant-based materials and has an organic cotton top. It’s the closest thing to an organic, non-offgassing mattress we can afford, and we compromised by getting another queen size when we would have bought a king size Endy, for example, otherwise.

soontobemrs1011 : latex mattresses are not for everyone. I would recommend trying them out in person. We bought a tuft and needle mattress. Cutomer service was amazing, but the mattress was harder than the floor. Literally. I couldn’t take it and did sleep on the floor. Darling Husband who is larger than me didn’t mind it so much though. Also, they say they have you donate to the salvation army….well the salvation army dude said he gets a lot of these and almost wouldn’t take it! Apparently you can’t refurbish a latex mattress. Also, I have a mild latex allergy. Although some say that natural rubber latex is hypoallergenic…it’s not for all people. If someone u know has a latex allergy it’s a concern.
We ended up buying a pillow top spring mattress from a local company. The mattress was amazing and only $100 more. I’d say it would have been way better for me to have shopped in person first.

LittleByLittle : We ended up buying that one you recommended (Queen, had to get 10″ because 8″ wouldn’t ship for 10 weeks and we have company coming next weekend). It arrived today, super easy to unbox and unpackage. It seemed to fluff up really quickly. I honestly didn’t think I would like it because I am one of those that loves SUPER pillowy plush with no support, and I was pleasantly surprised. I feel like I got my $$ worth. We’ll see what my sister and bro-in-law say when they come visit. I know they have a high end memory one at their place, and apparently this one can compete based on reviews. Thank you!!

I have a bedinabox.. we love it to bits!
That said, we like it MUCH more since we moved to Seattle–the first month we had it while in California and like most memory foam it can heat up quite a bit, and that’s even with the cooling mattress topper we bought.
