10 reviews for Zinus 12 Inch Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress / CertiPUR-US Certified / Bed-in-a-Box / Pressure Relieving, Queen

  1. Samsquanch

    Still happy I made this purchase***2 Year Update 4/21/19***Sorry I missed the update! Six months wasn’t enough time to give this bed a proper review. The big question you probably have is would you buy it again? Yes.This has been our nighty sleeper since purchased. We rotated the bed every three months. The wife has been very very happy with the bed as a back sleeper. She praises the deep, relaxing sleep almost every day. Around the 6 month mark, as a side sleeper, I started to have deep pressure points on my hips. I would move around a little and be fine, but I could feel the residual pain later in the day. That’s where I’m at. Meh.I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m looking at another mattress in the next year. Wifey doesn’t know this yet because she’s super happy with the bed. I am too, but I want a better sleep. I miss the deep sleep I had the first few months.These beds are perfect for growing kids or a guest bedroom. That’s why I say I would purchase another, because I will for that application.****I wanted to make sure I put some thought into this review as I was once just like you. I was on the fence about buying a bedfrom Amazon. If your reading this, good job trying to educate yourself on this purchase! There are THOUSANDS of positivereviews on this bed and as of 5/19/17 mine is one of them. I set a Google calander reminder to update this review 6 monthsfrom today.The wife and I purchased the Zinus 14″ metal platform (no headboard) instead of using our old boxspring. We wanted to havethe extra bed available in case we had over night guests. The bed frame was easy enough to put together, I’m pretty sure itsonly 20 wing nuts and bolts. I took the additional step of brushing thread sealant on the bolts to reduce the possiblity of*squeeks* and vibration as other reviewers have suggested.Unboxing the mattress was pretty straight forward. I watched a few Youtube videos and I suggest you do the same. Carefullycut the tape on the cardboard box and dump out the big heavy white bag. The mattress itself is inside the white plastic bagthat you rip open once you have the bag on the frame. Repeat. Open once you have the bag on the frame. DO NOT CUT THE WHITEBAG, RIP IT ALONG THE SEAM! Align the mattress on the frame and remove the clear plastic bag. Once the bed is completelyremoved from the packaging, measure the mattress thickness, do another alignment, pull the corners up toward you if they arefolded under and start the clock.I purchased the bed set in early April and the temperature wasn’t exactly warm. As other reviewers have done, I brought in asmall space heater to warm up the room. This seemed to help expand the foam faster and uniformly. After 2 hours the mattresswas about 8 inches and I went to work leaving this project until later in the evening. Upon returning home, I found the bedhad expanded to 11 1/2 inches! I was very tempted to sleep on the bed that night but my wife reminded me that I shouldn’truin our new bed….a total of 36 hours have gone by…The wife has agreed that the bed is now ready to sleep on! I measured the thickness of the bed in 4 different locations allof which were over 12 inches. I’d say our bed has expanded to 12 1/4 inches! There didn’t seem to be any visible dips orlumps in the mattress.I’m 6’4″ 235lbs side sleeper, wifey is 5’9″ 130lbs back sleeper and both found the bed to be very comfortable. I did not findthe bed to be “marshmallow” soft, but more on the medium soft/firm level. Is this a complaint? Nope. If you’ve never slept ona memory foam mattress there is a bit of getting used to. It’s not bad, the bed just doesn’t react like a tradtionalboxspring would. I was shocked at how well my wife and I both slept that night. Yes, there are a few days to acclimateyourself to this bed so don’t jump into it expecting the magic floating marshmallow unicorn will usher you off to the deepestsleep you ever had on the first rainbow star lit night of spring. Did I sleep incredibly well the first few nights? Youfriggen bet Mr. Lahey!Regarding heat… I read where others had to change how they layered the bed sheets/comforter and will agree with that. Whilethis bed is not HOT it is warm so you may have to rethink having 6 layers of bed sheets. I sleep hot, but once I rethought mybedding heat was no longer an issue.For people wondering how this bed handles adult fun play time I wouldn’t worry. The wife and I made sure to diligently testthis aspect of mattress performance and are happy to report… neither of us really noticed a difference. Our only realcomplaint was more with the bed frame than the mattress. There are no grooves/slots/tabs to secure the mattress to the frameor vice versa. Hence, the bed can move if your really really into adult fun play time.I can say after a solid month of sleeping on this bed that it’s amazing. I wake up rested, no hip pain, and groggy from themass amount of REM sleep I just experienced. Only time will tell how this mattress holds up. Right now, it fit the bill andour budget. I will update everyone in 6 months.

    So far so good. ****Updated Review after a month or more of useI ordered this item on 1-27-2018 it arrived on 1-29-2018 with my prime membership. I opened and laid it out on top of a guest room bed to inflate. In 4 hours it appeared to be fully inflated. However packing info says wait 24-48 hours before using to allow proper time to inflate. I did however break down and climb on to see how it feels. I am on a pillow top mattress currently that is roughly 6-8 years old and has been causing me a lot of pain in my shoulder and hip as I am a side sleeper. Just laying on this bed for a few minutes its much firmer than my current bed, and so very comfortable. I will leave a more through review once I have actually slept in it for a few nights. I can say I am very excited. I plan to put it on my current box springs, and we will see how it goes. I was a bit disappointed to realize you cant flip the mattress only rotate it, which is what I have currently with my terrible pillow top . and I like to flip my mattresses every month. I will also state that when I unrolled it I was really worried about it forming its natural state as it had a lot of weird lumps from packing, but it has formed to a normal mattress already on a cursory view of it on my way out the door today. I will better inspect it when moving it to my actual bed. Update!! I have been sleeping on this mattress for about a week now. I will say one night I did get very warm, however I don’t think it was my mattress I tend to run hot and cold and occasionally has the same issue with my old pillow top. This mattress is shockingly firm when you first sit or lay on it you think oh Hell No! But within second the memory foam begins to contour to your body and it’s very comfortable. I am a side sleeper and was having alot of hip pain with my old mattress. While my pain isn’t gone it’s much better, and I think it will go away given more time with this new bed. My review is definitely a positive one. For 179$ and arriving in 2 days I’m very pleased. Included are 3 photos the last photo shows me sitting on the edge of the bed showing how much it goes down with my weight, and that I don’t know why people say you can’t sit on the sides I can’t sit on any side any corner no issues… and even with my weight it springs right back to shape once I move or get up, it also still provides comfort and support this bed is rated up to 500lbs! Which thankfully I am not!********* Updated Review***********I have been sleeping on this bed for over a month now, and wanted to update my thoughts. My hip and shoulder were in ALOT of pain when I bought my new mattress. I couldn’t barely walk around during the day from the pain, now I am fully recovered and I credit my bed for this. If you are on a budget and cant spend 500-1000$ on a new mattress I greatly recommend this item.If you are plus sized and worried about it don’t be this bed is tested for 500lbs and as a big girl myself I sleep amazing on it with my HUGE dog and cat. I feel more rested and relaxed waking than I have in at least 5 years.

    Great mattress with one issue (in progress)!Received it 4 days ago. Got here fast.Intact and packaged well. Got it opened up and cut/broke the seal and poof! Within 24 hours it was totally filled and looked great. Corners were sharp and defined. The firmness was consistent and I was pleasantly surprised when I gave it a 2 minute test drive. It really is better than I expected. My test drive would have been much longer if not for the 1 “catch” in all of this. The odor is pungent to the point of only being able to tolerate it 5 or 7 minutes. It is not a mold or chemical smell. I have since had a total of 7 people,(delivery men),bring furniture into the apartment. I said nothing about it and waited. I watched for there reactions. All of which were almost immediate and commented on in vivid detail as they compared the odor to sources I won’t go into for sake of “Too much info!”. They never physically stepped into the bedroom. I have sealed up the return vent and basically sealed the room off with a small fan at first. I have now moved up to a good size fan and the 2 large windows are opened round the clock.. That said I have every intention of following up with an update in the next few days. Hence the 3 stars. I had already factored in time for something like this after reading the reviews. The manufacturer recommended 72 hours. I had figured on 5 or 6 days into my plans. While I am concerned I am really hoping things will level out and the odor will dissipate. As I had mentioned this mattress really looks and feels great. Things like this often turn around completely and all is fine. I feel optimistic for 2 good reasons. #1: I bought it from AMAZON and #2:from my research the manufacturer is focused on customer satisfaction almost as much as AMAZON is. In the meantime check back in a few days. I am definitely going to follow up on this. I am just as curious as any one else who is looking at this mattress. Tune in later…UPDATE: 5/14/18Day 6 and fan(s) continue to run 24hrs round the clock.Am very concerned but still hopeful. Most unsettling is that the odor has not dissipated AT ALL! It remains pungent to the point of picking up the odor downstairs and outside that side of the garage. Spoke with Zinus customer service. Had no problem getting through to associate. Explained issue and asked for possible ideas. She suggested that I might try some dryer sheets and continue to air it out for another week if possible. I asked if putting it outdoors in a protected place would help. She said yes but don’t do it if it was too difficult for me. She was sincerely concerned that I would risk hurting myself in moving it outside.She told me that she would like me to call them back in a week to let her know how things were going. She said if things have not improved by then we would discuss an exchange. Something I REALLY hope doesn’t happen but I think it is important to point out that even with all this hassle I feel it would be worth the trouble. Only because outside of the terrible odor, every other characteristic of this mattress is (at the price), is quite remarkable. I feel the associate I spoke with was not handing me a line and that she was in fact sincere. She meant what she said. So I guess time will tell. I will continue to give updates.(another first for me with AMAZON but worth the effort). A good 75% of my purchasing decisions on AMAZON ride on the reviews. I know they take them seriously only because at times in the past, when I have discussed a return with them directly, the process involved the validity of some of the reviews I had read during the decision making of a purchase. Over the years they have been consistent with their efforts and bent over backwards to make things right the few times there was this type of issue. What makes this so unique for me is the SIZE of the item we are dealing with and my inability to “shrink” it back to it’s shipping size. I’m off to the laundry room for some dryer sheets and as before I’ll be updating this possibly in the next few days, but definitely in a week. I am still concerned but trying to remain positive and stay focused on a good outcome..UPDATE: 5/25/2018Just over 10 days since last update. Wanted to make sure. Kept up with the fans and per instructions, the dryer sheets. Was really getting discouraged by the 6th day so I called Zinus. Call went through first try and was on hold less than 5 minutes. Gave info to the associate and she had my history up in no time. She had enough so I didn’t have to start from the beginning,(thank goodness). Told her exactly what I had done and let her know my concerns and frustration. It became clear that she was in fact listening to what I was telling her. She could see in the notes that I had been in contact with both Amazon and Zinus during this time with the status of things. She was never once dismissive. Her answers were direct and honest. She made it clear that enough time had passed and it was time to begin the process of replacement. Her only request was that I contacted Amazon once more and tell them about our discussion and that I did in fact need and qualify for a replacement. She told me to see if Amazon would agree with handling the exchange and that if there was any”push back” on there part,(which she doubted), to go the the Zinus web site, click on a particular link and start the replacement”Ticket” process. At that point it was made very clear to me this was not a hand off, and that every thing was going to be taken care of. It was just a question of which one was going to do it. I called the Amazon number she gave me. In less than 10 minutes every detail was taken care of and an extra minute was taken to make sure I knew everything was going to be fine and every concern had been addressed and eliminated. 4 days later the replacement arrived. The minute I broke the seal I knot only knew it was OK, it smelled GREAT! Seriously… Less than 24 hours later the filling out process was complete and just like the first, the corners were sharp and defined. Last measurement was 11 7/8 inches. I think it is safe to say I will make it through the rest of my life and be fine with the knowledge of having lost that 1/8 if an inch. I feel it necessary to mention some of the negative reviews directed toward the customer support of both Amazon and Zinus. I will be honest about the hassle factor in all of this. To say it has not been would be a blatant lie. I was just as upset as anyone who found themselves in this dilemma and I made it clear to all I spoke with. However, NEVER once did I tear into anyone I spoke with or feel it necessary to do so. Even given the amount of time I spent. Heck, this darn review has taken a chunk of time but the reason I am doing this is the very reason I come to Amazon. They have never failed to be fair and honest with any return/exchange issue. I have found if I am honest and reasonable with any Amazon associates they take care of it every time. The few and rare times I have had an issue with one of their suppliers Amazon has stepped in, usually before I even ask, and bent over backwards to make sure things were not just dealt with, but that it was done to MY satisfaction. Over the years Amazon has proven to be consistent in all issues similar to this one. Say what you will but in my 61 years on this earth I have never had the ongoing support focused totally on the consumer from any retailer at a level comparable to what Amazon provides. If something goes wrong, they do everything they can to fix it. What more can you ask for? Well done Amazon, and thanks!

    Great mattress. Comfortable for 2 fat people and 3 dogs.EDIT: 3 month update…..I’m still leaving it at 5 stars. We have now had this mattress for just over 3 months and still love it. I am falling asleep faster, staying asleep and waking up feeling more rested. I have slept on both sides and even in the middle of the mattress and have equal comfort anywhere. I normally have 3 dogs hogging the bed and what’s really nice is I barely notice if they get up and move to a new spot, even if it’s right next to me. I no longer feel like my husband is doing backflips if he turns over in the middle of the night either. Even the one night the mattress pad didn’t make it into the dryer in time for bed I did notice the difference the mattress pad makes in not making this mattress feel as firm, but it was still quite comfortable, just not as comfortable. I have no complaints. There were no smells with ours to start with so that never was a problem and it’s still at a full 12″ evenly across.I’m in the camp of those who were really skeptical of buying a mattress online. Especially a foam one since I’ve had a regular pillow top one for the past 10 years. Yes it was time for a new mattress! I had been shopping around for a new mattress for a few months trying out different ones, getting pricing and trying to make a decision which is kind of a big deal when you’re more than likely looking at spending a lot of money. A friend suggested we consider the foam mattresses and that Amazon had some good prices on them. I headed to a local store to give their version of these mattresses a try and I was surprised how comfortable they were. After testing them out I decided to see what Amazon reviews had to say about the ones they offered. I read through the good and the not so good and the flat out bad reviews and decided to take a chance and see what arrived. I am super happy I did! Granted it’s only been 2 weeks but so far we love this mattress! I had read the multiple reviews saying theirs didn’t inflate correctly, had a foul odor, was lumpy, etc….thankfully none of that was true of what we received.To break it down…..cons…It is a firm mattress no doubt. I am someone who likes to pretty much sleep in a cloud and am a side sleeper so it’s taken some getting used to. Since the cost of this mattress was so good I went ahead and ordered a high quality mattress cover/pad and for me it’s really helped make adjusting going from a plush pillow top to a firm bed a lot easier.Going from a spring mattress to a foam ones takes some adjustment on the support on the sides. Obviously the spring ones tend to have more of a frame around the edges so sitting on the side of the bed is different. I wouldn’t say it’s bad but it’s not as supportive.We will probably need to get a new bed frame here sometime soon. While the box springs we had from our old king are still in great shape the lighter weight mattress tends to slide and needs to be shoved back into place every night before going to bed. Not really any fault of the mattress it’s just a con that I’ll need to replace the bed itself in order to stop this from happening.Another con that’s not the fault of the mattress it’s just my bad luck….I missed where this was on sale just after Thanksgiving because I was still pondering what kind of mattress to get. So I paid the higher, yet still on sale, price. 4 days later it went back on sale again and has remained $40 cheaper for over a week now. Bummer for me, but still a good deal, just not as good of a deal as if I’d waited 4 more days to decide.On to the good stuffPros…..Per my experience I say buy this mattress. Don’t wait, grab it at the price it is now. I did not notice any sort of foul odor but I did open the windows and had the ceiling fan going while it inflated.It inflated to the full 12″ and did so within an hour. We were sleeping on the mattress withing 4 hours of setting it up. It fit where our old king size was perfectly with no overhang or shortages size wise. It’s around 2″ taller than our old mattress so that took a little getting used to but it measured 12″ with a regular school ruler.It was well packaged and fully deflated ready to go when it arrived.I’m a big girl and my husband is a fairly big guy and we both sleep comfortably on this mattress with our 3 large breed bed hogging dogs. When my husband moves at night he does so like a fish out of water and I have noticed he doesn’t wake me up turning over because it’s not bouncing me around like our old mattress did. I don’t even really notice a dog moving around to a different spot.I’m a side sleeper who would love to sleep in a cloud so this did take some getting used to but it’s never been uncomfortable. The first night getting to sleep and finding a comfortable position took a little bit but I could instantly feel I was better supported and my hip and shoulder didn’t have the pressure it normally would. When I turned onto my back I felt almost like I was sleeping in a hammock. Not totally of course but the extra support was there where it hadn’t been before. With what I saved on the mattress I went ahead and bought a nice mattress pad/cover to put on top to make it a little more soft. I had always been told you can make a firm mattress more soft but you can’t make a soft mattress more firm so if it’s too firm invest in a good pad and it can make a lot of difference if you prefer a softer bed.What I noticed right away is when I woke up I wasn’t as sore. I feel a lot more rested in the morning and I’m not waking up to turn over or move around near as much as I was. Granted our old mattress was 10 years old and that had a lot to do with it, but still this mattress is obviously better and keeps me in a deep sleep for longer periods throughout the night.My husband also says he’s sleeping better and isn’t flopping around like he had been doing with the old mattress. He’s the one of us always complaining about being hot while sleeping and he said he hasn’t noticed this mattress makes that any worse, and if anything since he’s not moving around so much it’s better.We like it so much we plan to order the 8″ version for our kid’s bunk bed here soon.As we get more use of out this I will try to update this review for how it’s holding up. I don’t expect to get 10 years out of it, granted i probably shouldn’t have tried to get 10 years out of the older one but it held up for at least 8-9 of those years. For this price I’d be happy if it lasts a couple of years. If it lasts longer even better. I highly suggest if this is too firm for you to buy a nice mattress pad and to buy it while it’s at the price it is now.

  5. A.G.

    After almost 5 years, an in-depth review!I am leaving a very detailed review after having this mattress for nearly 5 years. I will list the pros/cons at the end. This was a budget purchase for my first real apartment. I was in my early 20s, single, didn’t want to spend a lot, but also didn’t want to sacrifice comfort. Now my partner and I can afford a higher quality mattress so we will be getting rid of this after about 5 years.Delivery and set up: The mattress was delivered in a big long box, rolled up and covered in thick plastic wrap. The set up for this mattress was great. I unboxed it, waited around 12-24 hours for it to expand to 12 inches (I measured it so I didn’t have to sleep on an air mattress in my new place for longer than needed – I suggest doing the same), and then placed it on top of my bed frame. As the product description says, no boxspring needed. Slight smell but that’s to be expected, it was nothing terrible and wore off after a few days. Some fitted queen sheets struggle to fit over the last corner as I make the bed, but I’ve always been able to get them on. I’ve never had to buy deep pocket sheets.The first 2.5 years: I weighed around 135lbs when this was purchased in 2017 and typically slept alone. I have always had some back and shoulder issues. I am a very hot, restless, and light sleeper. Basically, I’m terrible at sleeping. That said, this mattress was great for the first couple of years. My partner began living with me in January 2020 and it’s been our main mattress. We didn’t have complaints until mid-late 2020.The last few years: By the end 2020 (3.25yrs after purchase) we noticed big differences. I do want to note that my partner and I spent a lot more time in bed in 2020 since we were at home for much of the year. We both put on pandemic weight, myself about 10-15 lbs and him more than that. I’m now around 150 and he’s around 245. We both prefer semi-firm mattresses and we both have back issues. I am a side and stomach sleeper, he is a back and side sleeper. We didn’t have many complaints until the mattress began to really soften up. I have l more issues than he does. Since late 2020 I cannot sleep comfortably on my stomach due to how soft the top layer of the mattress has become. My lower back will end up killing me due to lack of support. My arms and shoulders also fall asleep when I sleep on my side, which seems odd but apparently a too-soft mattress can do that. It’s hard for me to move my sleep position and I’m not a large human (I’m a pretty petite 5’4” female, despite some weight gain). The heat distribution has also become unbearable at times for both of us, so much that one of us will go sleep in the guest bed because it’s so hot. We keep the A/C on pretty low at night along with a fan and still have heat issues. You can also tell that no one sleeps in the middle of the bed because it is noticeably firmer in the center than the right and left sides. Sleep is important and if we didn’t have an extra guest mattress (which is an old springform with a pillow top), I’m not sure what we would have done the last couple of years. One positive though – the transfer of movement still isn’t bad after all this time. Even though we’re both flopping around with even greater force because the softened top layer makes it harder to move, the movement transfer is pretty low.PROS:- Easy delivery and set up- Affordable- Great support for all sleep positions if you weigh ~140lbs or less- Low movement transfer- Versatile – can put on almost any base- Easy to move from room to room (not super heavy but need 2 people if moving further because it is thick and bulky)- Usually cooling, but only if you sleep alone- Stays medium-firm for the first few years- Great edge support – even though we have other issues after 5 years, the edge isn’t badCONS:- Quality does degrade over time (for us, it was noticeable after 3ish years, but maybe specific circumstances contributed)- Not the best for hot sleepers, especially if you don’t sleep alone.- When the top layer softens, heat transfer becomes much more apparent- When the top layer softens, it offers very little support for stomach sleepers- When the top layer softens, it can offer minimal support for side sleepers- Zero bounce for intimate times – but that’s also to be expected from most foam mattresses- If you weigh over 140lbs, you may notice a faster degradationAll in all, if you’re looking for a foam mattress within a budget, this is a great option. Just don’t expect it to suit all your needs for a very long time.In case the item purchased isn’t listed above the review – this is for the Zinus 12 inch Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress in a queen size. I can’t recall what I paid for it but I’m sure it was a bit less than what it is now.

    Pretty good deal! What’s with all the negativity?Purchased on 7/12/17 for $189. Had a sinking feeling in my gut all week because of negative reviews on Amazon. I’ve only slept on the bed two nights now, but I feel like something is going on here that’s just not right. Let’s talk about the smell, I have seen a lot of complaints comparing it to the smell of “wet paint”, I find that comparison absolutely disingenuous. There is an odor, it’s the smell of new foam. I would say on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the strongest, this odor falls in in at about 2 or 3. After 24-48 hours, I would say it is a 1 or less. I can’t smell it unless I’m face down in the mattress with the sheets off inhaling deeply. Just for the reader’s reference, I have painted a handful of bedrooms. The odor of wet paint registers as a strong 7 out of 10 to me. Also, just a side note — the instructions recommended I open the bed in a well ventilated area, I opened it in my room with the air conditioner on. Everything was fine.The instructions also recommended I wait 48 hours before sleeping on the bed, so I did. Even though it appeared to be 90% expanded in 5-7 minutes, I gave it two days anyway. My first impression of the bed is that it is firm, very firm. It’s definitely a lot different than the 20 year old box spring I was sleeping on. But wow, after a full day at work and breaking the old bed down/putting this one together I got right to sleep. The foam contoured to my body and I woke up feeling pretty good the next morning. There was no feeling of ecstasy, I didn’t wake up with some remarkable experience and I’m not in love with it, but I did wake up feeling pretty darn good. Also I did sleep all night without tossing/turning, which is a big plus.The second big complaint that concerned me was in regard to sinking into the mattress and having difficulty turning side to side because of sinking. I haven’t experienced this, as of this moment those claims are completely unfounded. I’m 6’1 and 315 pounds, I can easily turn from side to side even after the foam contours to my body. I don’t understand this complaint, at best I would say it is exaggerated.The bed in a box market is extremely volatile right now, a handful of companies are competing with one another in a relatively new market. I don’t want to be a conspiracy theorist, but something about the hate this bed is receiving just doesn’t seem right. Looks like there’s a lot of exaggeration going on, but I can only comment on my experience.I included a picture of the bed, apologies for the mess… the comforter set I ordered won’t be in for another day. Also apologies for my roommates, who occasionally just come in my room and get in the bed. I guess they will be buying one of their own soon.I will edit this review around October 2017 and update with more information. Just felt I had a responsibility to clear some things up about the bed.EDIT:Update as of 11/27/17. I’m a month late on my promised update. This mattress has survived a move to a new home. I have slept on it every night and it hasn’t given an inch. It’s still holding up extremely well, I am fully satisfied with my purchase. I see the overwhelmingly negative 1 star reviews are still pouring in on this product, it doesn’t make sense to me. It MUST be under attack by competitors, no idea how else to explain it. I would buy this mattress again and again, and I have recommended it to everyone who has asked about it. I have met a few people who own them, and they love them as well. This is the bed-in-a-box killer at a price other companies would charge you for a single pillow. Buy it.EDIT 2 ( 4/29/2018):I just got back from my parents house, who purchased two of these mattresses after I shared my experience. They tried to put one of them on a traditional bed-frame with a box spring and experienced significant sinking. I am going to equate this problem to the reviews left by other Amazon customers on this item. If you try to put this mattress on a traditional box spring, you are going to have a bad time. You need to purchase the Zinus frame, or a similar generic frame made for a memory foam mattress to go with this item.

    I love this bed. I finally look forward to laying down to sleep!I bought the 12″ memory foam ‘green tea’ bed and all I can seem to say lately is… oh bed, I love you. I was used to sleeping on a very old tempur bed that had been breaking down over the past year. it was basically like sleeping on a hot lumpy sponge and I was waking up with a sore back after only about 4 hours of sleep. So I decided to upgrade myself. I did my research, spent three days talking to mattress stores, reading reviews and talking to people who had bought different beds. I tested beds, I checked prices, I looked at options, everything. I wanted to make sure I was buying a good bed that wouldn’t leave me in agony like my old bed. I knew two people who’d bought beds from this company. So, I looked at all the options they offered and what they were made of and how people reviewed them. I ended up choosing the 12 inch memory foam green tea one. The price was right, and shipping wasn’t terrible. I expected to get my bed in about a week… which would give me time to prepare to set it up. I got my bed in about 3 days from the point I submitted my order. I decided not to buy the bedframe they offer, as I still had my box from my last mattress. I kinda wish I’d bought their frame, as it sits higher than my current frame, but that’s beside the point. I got everything set and ready to go, and opened my box. My mother laughed at the fact that a bed came in that small of a box and she was skeptical of it’s quality. I was a bit cautious, but felt confident in my choice.The bed is a bit difficult to get out of the box, and then the bag that it comes in. I can’t see anyone being able to do so alone. once out of it’s shipping bag, it’s still sealed and fairly easy to just situate on the frame before opening. I highly recommend you don’t unseal the mattress until you have it where you want it. once I cut into the plastic seal wrap, it instantly started to ‘inflate’ again. got the plastic pulled off of it and watched as within moments it was already filling out. There was barely any smell to it at all. I left my window cracked open just a bit that night just in case, but honestly, unless I had pressed my face up against it, I couldn’t smell anything from it. I followed the instructions that came with it (yes, they send you instructions and care information) and I let it be for the remainder of that day, that night, and the following day. In total I think I left it just lay there and settle for about 30 hours. I’m extremely glad I did because it allowed the foam to expand to 11.75 inches. I wasn’t gonna complain about the loss of a quarter of an inch. So i finally got to lay down on my bed!The top layer of the bed is so nice and squishy that you don’t even take notice that there’s hard foam in the base layers. this nice super squishy top layer of foam makes the bed totally conform to you. the layer just under that is the typical memory foam, so even after the squishy foam sinks in, you’ve got regular memory foam to support you. If you sit on the edge it does sink in (but that’s perfectly normal of any sort of foam edge) but as soon as you get up you can see it just fluff right back up. it’s actually kinda fun to push down on it and watch how quick it recovers. you can kinda ‘see’ where the layers are when you look at the side. It comes with a nice cover, but when you’re first looking it over, some of the layers aren’t cut exactly to match at the sides. this didn’t trouble me as once the sheets were on, you can’t even tell. Oh yeah… for the 12 inch, buy deep pocket sheets. I got sheets with pockets up to 14″, and they fit just perfectly.I’m a side and back sleeper… so having a bad bed is like a cruel form of daily torture. This bed… oh man, this bed is great for side and back sleeping. I’ve gained over an hour of restful sleep each night, and I find I don’t toss and turn as much. . my dog even loves this bed. she has her own bed to sleep on, but I still find her constantly sleeping in a corner of my bed. For the first time in years I find myself falling asleep in one position, and waking up hours later in the same position. I get up in the morning without back pain. I nearly cried that first morning when I got up and could just walk out of my room without being hunched over or limping from my back being so sore. It’s been glorious to just simply get up and walk off without any pain. These days I have more issues waking up with ‘dead arm’ from sleeping on one side for too long… a problem I haven’t had in years because my mattress kept me tossing all night. This bed also breathes so much better. My tempur bed usually left me sweaty as it just radiated my body heat back at me so I’d wake up sweltering. In summer I’d change out my sheets, make my bed and for about 5 months, I wouldn’t even sleep in the bed because I needed the blankets and comforter under me to keep the bed from getting so hot. This bed doesn’t have that issue. while it’s still foam, it doesn’t trap the heat in. Makes a huge difference in sleep quality when the temperature stays fairly regulated.I find myself looking forward to laying on my bed each night. I sleep better and for longer intervals. I wake up with less pain in my body. I sleep on my sides without the constant ache in my hip from pressure. I’m not as exhausted as I have been in the past because I’m getting better sleep at night now. Seriously, I’ve recommended this mattress to many people already. it was so easy to buy, sets up without too much difficulty (with two people unpacking it) and it sleeps wonderfully. It’s been a month now and I have absolutely no regrets with buying this bed. In fact, I’m hoping that they still make this bed when I need a new one, because I’d buy another one without hesitation.

    8-inch Zinus First-Night Review: So Far, So GoodI am writing this review on the morning after my first night’s sleep on this mattress. I am giving it a 4 out of 5 stars. I will update and/or edit later as appropriate after multiple nights, but I felt it was important to the validity of the review to start out with “first impressions”. Let me state at the outset that no person nor any company has offered or given any inducement or incentive for this review, nor asked for it in any way. I read and referenced many reviews when searching for a new mattress, and wanted to give others the same help that the reviews gave me.That said, here goes. The set-up: I am 5-3, weigh about 115, and am disabled. I can walk, but I have various physical issues which put me in chronic pain. I have slept on traditional mattresses, the original Temperpedic, (which I have no idea how to spell, obviously!) and futons. Of those, I normally preferred and defaulted to, fairly high quality futons which combine batting layers and inner coils. I have lower back pain and hip pain. For a while, I have been having intense pain during the night that went away when I slept at hostels in NORCAL which have foam mattresses. I realized that the intensification of my normal daily pain was really detracting from the quality of my life so I knew that I had to switch mattresses. I cannot afford an expensive mattress, so I set my budget and started reading reviews. I read a really good one of the Zinus and could find only review-for-hire reviews of the higher priced memory foam mattresses. The really good review of the Zinus, among many which I read that varied, mentioned that the reviewer had tried more expensive memory foam mattresses which he identified by name. Of course, I don’t know the guy, but it seemed genuine so I decided to try it. I waited for one of Amazon’s periodic sales. I did pay attention to the manufacturer’s comments about how to decide which thickness to get. I went for the 8-inch because it allegedly was firmer.So: Unpacking and opening went well, because I got my neighbors to do it. I’m small and disabled. They didn’t follow directions but intuitively deployed the precise method which I later discovered was the recommended one.I opened windows to make sure that if there was any chemical smell, it would dissipate since I have asthma. I couldn’t detect any, but I did feel a slight burning in my nose so it was probably there at least on the first day. I let the mattress decompress for about 30 hours, over night and until bedtime (we set it up at about 6:00 p.m. on the day it arrived, and I went to bed on it at about 11:00 p.m. on the next night).I was particularly concerned about soreness in my lower back, neck, and legs which had been causing me problems during the night. This would be over and above my normal chronic pain.I experienced none of that last night. I would normally awaken several times in the night with tenderness in my hips or lower back and have to take steps to relieve pain or pressure. I did not experience that last night. I slept through the night. When I awakened, I had no intense pain in my lower back or hips, just the mild normal ache. My neck was stiff and sore but I have a cheap pillow (my next purchase) so I can’t blame the mattress for that. So, first night, good news and the exact result that I sought.A few notes.I might have gone for the six-inch if it is even firmer. I couldn’t decide between the six inch and the eight inch but I went with the eight inch.I watched a video review of the 12-inch where the guy reviewing it said “meh”. I forget his name. He gave the 12-inch a 2 to 3 out of 5. He complained about it being too soft, but the description on Amazon very clearly said, if you want a firmer mattress, don’t get the 12-inch. So I put that on him. I also noticed that the guy had another mattress standing against the wall in the video. I’ve read about people who review mattresses in exchange for free mattresses and money. One story talked about a person who outfitted an entire household with mattresses by reviewing them. Some of those reviewers get Brand X’s mattress in exchange for dissing Brand Y’s product. So, I don’t know about this guy.One point he did make: It’s a fairly inexpensive mattress. I got mine for about $150 on one of Amazon’s lure-you-in sales (their algorithms track your searches and show you sales of what you want, don’t be fooled, they do for sure). I can’t afford a grand for the high dollar memory foam mattresses or even $600, at least not right now. Maybe down the line, but I would have to sleep on one first. If a Zinus at $150 gives you the same night’s sleep as the other guy at $1000, it’s a no brainer for me.Another note about that guy’s video. He said, If you have trouble standing, don’t get a Zinus. He said of the 12-inch, it gave no firmness against which to push to stand. That is the exact opposite of what I experienced this morning. I very much do have trouble sitting up in bed in the morning due to my disability. I had particularly noticed of late that I had to basically use the bedside table and the nearby built-in cabinet to hoist myself to a sitting position. That problem was part of why I knew that I had to make some changes. This morning, I sat right straight up and got out of bed, which I have not been able to do in several years. So I take issue with that and again, it is likely because he didn’t read the specs and got the 12-inch instead of one of the firmer variants.I also watched a husband and wife set up a Zinus. They were hysterical. I tried to find a review by them, partly because they were funny and partly because they were both larger folks, and they were sleeping together on the Zinus. I wondered if it worked out for them.So, 4 out of 5 stars for the Zinus 8-inch after set-up, decompression, and first night’s sleep. I’ll update if necessary, that is, if it worsens or substantially improves. I’d give it 3-1/2 stars as a precaution if I could (can you give 1/2 stars here?) just because one-night does not a long-term barometer reading make. If future nights prompt a downgrade, I’ll add a post-script.Good luck!

    6 years in and still comfortableI bought this mattress (Queen) when I was single and slept on it for over three years with no issues aside from sleeping a little hot. I’m 300lbs and a back sleeper, my wife is a side sleeper. After three years it was still great but we moved it to the guest room to get a King size mattress. I bought something else and after 15 months it was degraded to the point we couldn’t sleep on it anymore. Bought another new more expensive mattress and after a 18 months it was degraded to the point my wife started sleeping in the guest room again. So now after 2 well regarded mattresses costing over 4k in under 3 years I am getting a new King size of this same mattress because it’s the only thing I have any confidence in being able to sleep in for more than two years.It isn’t perfect but it’s better than anything I’m aware of within five times its price point. Mine has held up well for 6 years, over 3 of which it was a daily sleeper. The entire mattress industry seems like a big scam, most are fine for the duration of the trial period but then they inevitably go limp, forcing you to buy a new one every 1-2 years which is incredibly wasteful. But at least this mattress delivers more than it promises.TIP: Never ever remove the cover, it will expose you to fiberglass strands that can cause serious health problems and contaminate your house. As long as you leave the non-removeable cover on and it isn’t damaged you are fine, definitely use a mattress protector for extra safety.

    Do not buy. Mold, dipping, and bad customer service.Update: Mold, serious caving in, and remarkably bad customer service has left me no choice but to downgrade this to a 1 star review. I have purchased several of these and almost every one of them has had a problem sooner or later. It looks like mold is an inevitability with this mattress. And that’s some nasty stuff to breath in 8 hours a day.I’m going to do everyone who reads this a massive favor. I’m going to tell you how I got the best bed ever, and it starts with this mattress.Let me start off saying that I have spent an unusual amount of time mattress shopping. I gave up on stores a while ago, and have been testing out the latex/foam options for a few years. The price, durability, and ease of shopping is hard to beat. I’ve tried all the major options; Purple, Tuft and Needle, Dreamforce, Tempurpedic, etc…The first Zinus mattress I got was all screwed up (images attached). But Amazon replaced it quickly. The most common complaint on this mattress is it’s too firm, and I can see what they’re saying. I’m a big (fat, over 300) guy, so I like firm. But most the people who have been in the bed are not so big. So, I decided to take advantage of the fact this was so cheap and went ahead and added two other items.First, 

    DreamFoam Bedding DF20GT2066 2″ Gel Swirl Memory Foam Topper, King, Aqua Blue

     This gel topper is great at keeping things cool, and has a good amount of give to it.Second, 

    Cheer Collection Ultra Plush Eco-friendly Hypoallergenic Bamboo Fitted Mattress Topper – King

     this pillow top topper adds yes another level of cushion, and yet seems to let the cooling factor of the get topper come through a bit.Between these added items, I think I have created quite possible the best mattress I’ve ever experience, far better than Purple, Tuft and Needle, Tempurpedic, etc…, and all for well under $400! It’s comfy, firm, and doesn’t get too warm.I have a couple suggestions that I think really help.First, make sure this sets on a completely flat surface. If you get a platform frame with a mesh bottom, add a sheet of plywood under the mattress. I do feel this makes a bit of difference.Second, use a mattress cover on the Zinus. This thing should last forever if you don’t damage it, so protect it. With the other two covers you’ll never actually be touching the mattress. Just replace the toppers every couple years.A bonus suggestion, especially since this whole set up is so cheap, is to treat yourself to some bamboo sheets. 

    HotelSheetsDirect 100% Bamboo Bed Sheet Set (King, Dark Gray)

     These feel amazing, and they’re only $50.For pillows I’d recommend getting some traditional pillows, as well as some latex filled. The combo is a nice addition. I really stand by this suggestion, so I hope someone finds it helpful. Let me know.One year update: Matress and pads still fantastic. I rotate it once a month, just as a routine. Still perfect.
