How do these breathe compared to regular spring mattresses?

They don't at all. No springs to poke your back and eventually fail... quite miserably. My Dad got a two for the basement room. Bouncy but supportive.

So, I woke up this morning and I couldn't look left. Would a better mattress help?! This seems oddly coincidental, that I may NEED a new mattress and HOME.WOOT has read my mind... or neck. Whichever, as long as I don't have to look left.

I heard that you should ditch your mattress every eight years due to sweat, dead skin cells, and other factors that make it nasty.

Does a memory foam mattress need to be replaces faster than a spring mattress? Or is it just the same minus the metal?

We got the king size of these about a month ago, which replaced a spring mattress.

We're liking it a lot - the smell isn't bad at all (like other posters have expressed).

It's also thicker than our ol' spring mattress, which I also like.

We keep a cover on our memory foam that we replace every year or so.

"Breath-ability" varies from person to person. I have one and don't notice any difference with the mattress cover on.

I would be a lot more inclined to bite if they revealed the manufacturer. Not all memory foam is created the same. True, $250 is a great deal, but for $500 at Costco you get an established brand and the most incredible return policy ever. With WOOT! you might be getting crap, and then it is crap you are stuck with.

Good luck flipping this in the classifieds for half of what you paid for it if you dislike it.

I purchased this bed about a year ago from Woot. The middle never sprang to life; it had a huge trench in the center. I waited so long for the mattress to become "okay" that I couldn't get a refund from Woot. Buyer Beware!

The memory foam fits to your body so your body has more contact with it than a regular mattress so it does not breathe as much as a regular mattress. I find the type of sheets used make more of a difference than the bed. A good set of quality higher thread count sheets make sure you do not get too hot.

I have both a $900 name brand memory foam mattress and a $200 cheapo one for the guest room. I have used both and both are equally comfortable. Now the cheapo is in a guest room so I can not speak to durability but it seems as good.

I got one last summer and I have mixed feelings. It's very comfortable but it's very warm and sometimes it makes me sweat a lot. YMMV, but I really recommend people to look around and do a little research before buying one.

This Woot may well be a fine mattress but a "full memory foam mattress" it is not. I know what of I speak since I have tried several less than full memory foam mattresses and found them wanting.

Full memory foam mattresses are much, much better than those with only a few inches of real memory foam. But you almost never see them on sale. A minimum full memory foam mattress needs seven inches of memory foam; more is unnecessary unless you are a really big person. Further, a full memory foam mattress doesn't need any other foam in it. The advantage of this is that the full memory foam mattress can have a much lower profile and you can still jump up and down on it while your glass of wine remains at your feet unspilled, not to mention all the other claimed benefits for this kind of mattress which I can personally vouch for.

All in all, this Woot is still very well priced for what it is.

I have the queen, full and twin foam mattresses from previous woots. We are happy with all three. They come rolled up tighter than a ... well very tight anyway. It is fun to open them. Make sure you open it the day you get it to avoid permanent memory loss. Leave it to air out for a week before sleeping on it because they do emit a chemical odor. I left mine on its side in the basement. The smell dissipates pretty quickly and it won't make ewe loose any IQ pints.

For cooler sleep, all-cotton sheets are best. If you can dry them on a line or hang-dry some other way, they won't need ironing.

I really, really dislike sleeping on memory foam mattress or even toppers. If you have not spent a few nights on a memory faom mattress and you want to try one make sure you can return it after 30 or however many days.

My favorite type mattress is a good quality latex foam mattress, best sleep of my life when I tried one so I bought one and am still as happy w/it many years down the road.

Memory foam made me sore, resticts my movement, is too hot (tried different sheets and pads and toppers). I have nothing good to say about it. The WORST thing is that it absorbs all motion - NOT nearly as much "fun" when in bed cavorting w/the SO, a little spring back from the mattress is a good thing ;)

Mine did that too except after a week I contacted woot and I was refunded. Supposedly the manufacturer had a defective batch and I was unlucky. I didn't even have to ship it back. Just took a pic of the bad mattress.

I ended up buying a $1000 mattress with 5' topper of foam from Costco. I wish the foam I bought wasn't defective. I could have saved a lot of money.

I personally like memfoam over any other mattress and have slept on them for about 10 years now.

Um, they're not saying it's *fully* memory foam as in completely, totally and exclusively memory foam and nothing else. In fact it does say it has a 4.5" high density foam base. What they mean is it's a full bed size, aka double bed. The later nomination seems to have fallen out of favor as, let's face it, only two very small humans, or say one human and a medium-small dog could fit on one so calling it "double" doesn't quite cut it. When you buy sheets for it you'll buy full rather than twin or queen.

So 2.5 inches memory foam + 4.5 inches regular foam = 7 inches. How is this a 10 inch mattress? What makes up the other 3 inches?

Ack- nevermind. Didn't see the cross section that shows the 3" "air channels".....

Full in this case is the bed size, Einstein. Thanks for the tip though.

If these mattress and 2 pillows come with full memory, is there any way to reformat them?

Is there anywhere to get one with empty memory?

Do you live under a rock or something? Full is referring to the size of the mattress. Even tempur-pedic mattresses only have a few inches of memory foam.

I would argue that high thread count isn't the only important thing. The thread staple (length of the thread) is generally more important. Egyptian cotton sheets are generally long-staple, so they'll be softer, as well as more durable. I have a set of high thread count cotton sheets for my memory foam, and they're definitely hotter than my Egyptian set, despite not being as high thread count.

Some companies list the thread staple on the packaging, but a lot don't. Generally, the more expensive high thread count sheets also have a higher staple, which not only makes them more durable, but just better overall than cheaper varieties.

Here's a nice website with various Memory Foam Mattress reviews. http://www.sleeplikethedead.com/mattressreview-memory-foam.html

For what it's worth I have the Sleep Innovations 10-inch mattress from Amazon and love it. As someone else mentioned, it's unfortunate that they don't mention which brand this is. However, according to the same website above, 81% of memory foam mattress owners are happy with their mattress as opposed to 61% of inner spring mattress owners. So there's a better chance of you being satisfied with a memory foam mattress than with a spring one.

I am not an expert, nor have I worked in the industry. Ever. All that follows is what I learned when shopping for my first latex mattress.

First, I want to clarify what a foam mattress is: latex. However, every day common latex it is not. This type of latex is a chemically PATENTED kind of latex. It is a "closed cell" type of latex. And this latex is a patented chemical compound. Thus, ALL LATEX FOAM MATTRESSES ARE NOT THE SAME! Patents make them different.

I cannot comment on the mattress Wooted; I don't know it's maker. I personally own THREE (3!) Tempur-Pedic king-size mattresses. None of them require: (1) turning; or (2) being "ditched" every 8 years. Why? 1. Because they never get 'worn-in'; and, 2. because sweat, dead skin cells and 'other factors' do not collect on the mattress (when the factory-provided cover of the mattress is treated as required by the owner's manual).

All 3 of my king mattresses came with a cheese-cloth-like cover over the mattress itself, and a removable and washable mattress cover that is to be periodically removed and washed according to the instructions provided. I'd suggest a sweaty person (such as myself) wash the cover more frequently than a less sweaty person (I wash my cover about every 2-4 months in the summer/fall, and every 3-6 months in the winter/spring). Washing removes dust mites and skin cells, as well as any sweat that soaks through bed sheets into the cover. The goal is to prevent sweat soak-through to the mattress. The mattress maker does not recommend using an additional mattress cover. I don't.

As to wearing-in (that is, making trenches in the mattress where bodies lay sleeping), traditional mattresses require turning because of spring break-in/loss of tension and padding compaction. Memory foam mattresses have neither springs nor padding. Therefor, turning foam yields only back injuries and disdain for the mattress. Turning a foam mattress is much like flipping Jell-O. Go with the odds-makers and bet against turning your foam mattress. Just say NO!

Humor aside, with no springs to wear out or padding to crush, foam does not yield trenching. The resilience of foam, logically, wears down or out, whatever is the term or process, right? Well, yes and no. Open cell foam, like a sponge, allows air to escape from within its "honeycomb" structure when compressed. All of the air once inside the sponge may not return to fill all of the spaces it did before being compressed. As compressions occur, resilience is lost -- trenches are formed in open-cell foam. Many foam mattresses are made with cheap latex that loses resilience over time -- trenches form. A quality latex mattress is made with CLOSED CELL technology. There is a big difference!
