Body alignment is much better
on November 9, 2012
I have never had a memory foam mattress in the past. I tried one in a store but I sank so deep into them, I felt like I needed a tow rope to roll over or get out of bed. It was kind of a suffocating feeling for me to sink that deep. Recently I needed a new bed, went into a furniture store, and was pointed to IComfort Revolution. Thinking I was NOT going to like it, I humored the salesperson and spread out on the bed. Yes, it had that memory foam feel.... But, I continued to lie on the bed and began to notice something interesting. The foam started to gently conform to my body. If you have a larger posterior, lying on a coil mattress elevates your spine at the small of your back. This bed kept my spine in perfect alignment. Did I feel like I needed a tow rope, no way. Easy to turn over, easy to get out of bed. I must have spent 30 minutes on that bed, moving here and there. She then took me to the coil mattresses and it became totally clear. You sleep ON TOP of a coil mattress. You sleep IN a memory foam. Since there is 120 day trial period, I decided to give it a try.
Bed was delivered over a month ago. When I first sat on it I thought, oh this is firmer than the store. Did I make a mistake? But that night I crawled into bed hoping for the best and found the same comfort as I had in the store. The gentle sinking of heavier parts of your body, keeping the body aligned. Shoulders do not hurt when sleeping on side. This is probably the BEST bed I have EVER slept on. I would HIGHly recommend this bed to anyone. It is true what they say about other people getting in the bed. You do not feel the motion. It is just great. Once you get used to the 'different feel" when you first get in, you will love this mattress.
I have read that people get too hot in foam beds but that this one has a gel layer that prevents this from happening. It is winter, so I am not sure about that. I have two blankets on my bed for winter and flannel sheets and if I get too warm, I throw one blanket off but find that I pull it back on at some point. So the temperature issue, I am not sure about. It seems to behave like my older coil bed.
CON: The ONLY Con to this bed is when you take the plastic off the mattress, let it air for a week or so before using it as there is some off gassing but that goes away.
SUMMARY: I would highly recommend this bed to anyone, especially if you have back problems. I started using this bed approximately 1 week after 3 level back fusion. I am not sure if it was the Polar care Unit or this bed, but 1 month postoperative, I am doing fantastic. I have never been able to say I loved my bed before buying IComfort Revolution but you have to try it. You will LOVE IT.
8/11/2013 UPDATE: It has been about 10 months since I bought this bed. No sagging, no indentations. The memory foam continues to come right back up. Sitting on the end of the bed it great. No sagging. Am I sorry I bought the bed. No. I would have bought this bed again.
