The mattress seems very well made, and of a high quality. But I suggest its not the best choice for someone with lower back issues. We ordered the firmest mattress on offer but it just isnt a very firm bed. Its still lovely and soft... but not what I need.
Our IKEA mattress in the spare room offers much more support.
The mattress is too hot not enough airflow. Have to keep aircon cold to compensate. Does not meet expectations with what was advertised in this area
I thought from all the 5 start reviews that this mattress would be a game changer but I can't honestly say that, it's ok and better than our old one but certainly not 5 star, maybe 3.5 stars.
Customer service was great but unfortunately the bed didn't work for me as I was waking with a sore back
I was so looking forward to sleeping on our new mattress, but after a few weeks of trying it turned out to be kind of average. No WOW moments or waking up thinking that was the best sleep ever. We bought a king size customised half/half version, medium firm and firm to match our sleeping styles. However one thing they miss addressing the assumption that partners STAY on their side of the bed.all night long. This is not the case for us’ where we like to roll over and spoon or cuddle up closely. If this is you as well I wouldn’t recommend getting half /half version of the mattress
Good quality and appears very well constructed. No dips or odd spots. A little firm for my liking even though I went for the medium feel.
My husband loves the mattress however I am sleeping hot. We have used a cotton mattress protector but this has not made much of a difference. The mattress is comfortable but I often find that I wake feeling like I’m in a furnace.
Mattress is dipping when my partner is in bed. He is 25kgs heavier.
Positive: Company was easy to deal with, process well thought out. Mattress is heavy so watch the video re setting it up. We have the medium king (at the 100 days now) but we found the mattress too firm for both of us, wife sleeps okay but does wake a little sore in hip back area, not significant though. Mattress is very very good re partner disturbance, 5 out of 5 for that but it seems too firm around hip and shoulder area which is where we need a little bit of give. I have a bad sleep 1 or 2 out of 5, wife a 3 or 4 out of 5. I contacted the Company or I think they contacted me, when I stated it was too firm they sent out another foam piece (at not cost)but really didn't find it made much difference. I think the idea of being able to unzip the cover and replace the foam topper excellent. We bought our own memory foam topper as we still weren't sleeping well, helps a bit but still not great. I'm looking at buying something else as it didnt work for us. The company sent out the paperwork for a refund but we have decided to put it in our spare room as we needed one there. Both us of us weight wise are slim so we are usually recommended to soft or plush, we are also side sleepers. This mattress would probably suit back stomack sleepers more in my view or if you like a firmer mattress. Overall the company and the idea gets a 5 but for sleep it's a 2.
At my age I have lived with a number of mattresses and the Sleeping Duck is up there with the most comfortable we have ever had.
But it is so heavy my wife can't make it.
Just trying to fit the fitted sheet is a real task and I am fit and 185cm.
It is so heavy trying to tuck the top sheet and blanket under this mattress could do your back in.
We have a modern "Slay bed" so the mattress sits about 50mm into the bed and trying to lift this dead weight is just not worth the effort.
We have had to swap it to the spare room it is just beyond us, you don't need this heavy mattress in your life.
