Hello jege41-

I am curious as to what type of topper you purchased for the Sultan Edsele IKEA mattress?

I tested this mattress in the store for quite a while and found it firm, which I wanted. I did purchase the mattress. Now after having slept on it for approximately 2 months, I find it almost too hard. I have it on a slatted wood box spring purchased from www.usboxspring.com/wood.htm (as recommened by the Admin Phoenix, of this site)

I now need a topper that will add softness but also one that will not retain heat. I tend to sleep warm, which is why I did not go with memory foam.

Thanks for any advice.

Gina

Hi needanewbed,

The ideal choice of thickness and firmness for a topper can vary a great deal from person to person and also depends on the specifics of the mattress it is being used on but post #2 here and the posts it links to should be helpful :)

Hey Gina
I have a Latexco 3" talalay 60/40 blend-28 ILD over the Edselle which is working out so far to be satisfactory. It isn't as soft as I would have liked but definitely not nearly as firm as the Edselle. I purchased it without cover which I'm glad for that as the cover isn't necessary so long as you have a fitted mattress protector over it. The body impression issue which was my main complaint with everything else I tried (Edselle not included) to date has been pretty much been eliminated. I'm 200 lbs. so if you are a light weight then I would go for a lower ILD than 28. Actually I would all natural if I did it again as well.
Ken at Arizona beds knows his stuff, my only complaint was getting things in writing.
Good luck

IKEA's trade only policy is also limiting. You can use it for credit elsewhere in the store, but if they don't have another mattress that works, you are stuck spending a bunch of money on cheap Swedish furniture... They do have some great dark chocolate at IKEA, but I don't think I could eat a grand's worth of chocolate, even with my wife's help. :lol:


I phoned Ikea tonight to clarify their return/exchange policy for mattresses. I don't know if it's changed since you were there Lew, or if it's different here in Canada (not sure where you are), but I was told it is 45 days for a refund or exchange - and 90 days for an exchange.

I thought the 45 day refund policy was only for unused items though? So if the mattress is new and unused, you can get a refund, but if it's used, then the 90 day "sleep on it" policy takes affect?

For reference, the policy for Canada, www.ikea.com/ms/en_CA/customer_service/return_policy/index.html

I could be interpreting it incorrectly though.

Hi CeruleanBlue and jwind55,

The US policy is here and it only appears to include a 90 day exchange (same as Canada) once the mattress has been slept on.

@jwind ... did they tell you specifically that you could refund a mattress after you'd used it?

Hi CeruleanBlue and Phoenix,

I actually purchased the Sultan Edsele yesterday at Ikea in Edmonton, AB. While at the store, I spoke to 2 different staff members, specifically asking if I could return the mattress before 45 days and get a full refund - they both answered yes. Five minutes ago I called customer service and asked again, being sure to ask "even if I use it" - and the answer was again yes.

So at this point I'm feeling pretty comfortable that I won't have any problem returning it for a refund before 45 days if necessary (and they will have a fight on their hands if they say otherwise. :angry: lol)

I promise to let you know what happens!

Hi jeind55,

Thanks for clarifying Ikea's return policy ... at least for Canada.

Most important ... congratulations on your new mattress :)

I'm looking forward to any feedback you have the chance to share with the forum.

First post, I was looking to get a mattress from IKEA.

I almost pulled the trigger on Sultan Holmsta.

To me, it's really hard to tell which mattress feels better. I tried all the IKEA ones and had no clear preference. I do like the firmer ones thou.

Guess I will have to do more research :(

Hi jl0329,

You've probably read this post from earlier in the thread but in case you haven't ... there is more information about many of the Ikea mattresses (including the Homlstra) in post #3 here earlier in this thread.
