Mine actually came today!

Like noted above, there was hissing as soon as the plastic wrap was cut into. It popped into shape before I could even get all of the plastic off. I ran off to karate class and now three or four hours later it seems to be in full shape. I sat down on it and my, it is firm (but not ouch my bum hurts firm). I suppose I will find the firmness a bit shocking for now since my old mattress was a broken down plush. I will post my thoughts after my first night of sleep and I plan to think about how I feel over the next week since it will take time for me to adjust to the new mattress.

I'll also see how my guy feels. He probably won't care either way lol.

Ok. So here is what my first night was like:

I fell asleep pretty quickly. I'm not used to the bed yet I can say for sure since I just *know* it's feeling different from my old bed and I spent a lot of time thinking about that on and off as I drifted to sleep. I definitely sleep on top of this bed, rather than in it unlike my old bed. At 110lbs I will say that I don't sink into it at all. Perhaps maybe I do a little if I am on my back, to accomidate the small of my back and such. It feels really great to sleep on my stomach - there is no pressure at all on my back. I fell asleep pretty quickly and only woke up once (I usually wake up a few times each night, probably four times a night is normal).

I noticed the pillow I use felt really flat on this bed. On my old bed it felt pretty fluffy and high up, but now I am thinking that could have been an illusion caused by my old bed where I was sinking and sleeping IN the bed. The pillow feels totally different and after a few hours my neck hurt. I switched pillows (I have a harder, foam one) and the pain from my neck began to go away. I'm going to sleep with this foam pillow for a while and just replace the other one in time with a shredded foam pillow since I like something that looks more like a normal pillow. So I would say to anyone experiencing pain in the upper back/neck, try a different pillow.

I have a little bit of lower back pain but it's not horribly painful like say.. when I woke up yesterday. This could also be from terrible posture at my desk job since I noticed a correlation between when I wear a corset to work for my slouching (no back pain, even on shitty bed) vs no corset (terribe pain).

My guy is in love with the bed and says this was the first night he felt like he had real sleep. I have to admit, even with the slight pain in my lower back (and a little in my shoulder... but that is from an injury in karate), it is 7 am and I am very awake. I am normally really cranky and have a difficult time waking up and when I do, I do not feel refreshed. Overall, I feel pretty good right now. I am actually really surprised that I don't want to go back to sleep at 7am on a Saturday. I usually sleep all day on Saturdays and end up feeling pretty tired anyway.

I am hoping this good feeling keeps up and improves as the bed breaks in. :)

Here is to hoping the rest of my first week goes well! I'd like to toss the old set. (I am almost tempted to take pictures. The sides of the bed are all sunken or bulging).

Anyone else who gets the ten this week is welcome to post here :)

Hello I just spent my 3rd night on the 10" Tuft & Needle mattresses that is closer to 11" high the bed seems to be well built and a quality bed overall, but for me and to a lesser extent my wife it's just to firm (I'm 6 4" 270lb and my wife 5 2" 115lb). I fall asleep on my back and turn to my side later, falling asleep is fine while on my back but as soon as I turn to my side the bed does not give more then what seems like an inch or so I have wide shoulders and this just does not work for me, and I find myself waking up multiple times each night once with my arm asleep due to limited blood flow while on my side. My wife is doing a little better on the bed and not waking up in the middle of the night but agrees the bed is to firm. We are using this www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ZQCJUS/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 foundation with a movers blanket on top that does have a little give to it, so this would be even firmer on a hard floor.

I called Tuft & Needle yesterday and they are setting up a return, I then called and talked with Chuck at Dreamfoam Bedding who reccomeended this mattress www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JGBXYAM/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I like the fact that the bed is adjustable per side as my wife seems to like a firmer bed then I do, but a little worried I'm taking a step down in quality. Keeping in mind I'm working in this budget range what do you all think? Any other ideas or reccommendations?

My first night on it was great. I usually start the night by lying on my left side for a bit until it becomes uncomfortable, then I flip over to my stomach with my head turned to my left and lay in somewhat of a mountain climber's position. I felt like I could have fallen asleep on stage one of my routine and don't even remember how long it took me to fall asleep on stage two because it was so quick. I woke up in the morning with no back pain, stayed in bed for another 1-2 hours with no pain, and feel pretty well wide awake right now. I didn't want to get out, I probably could have spent the whole day in there.

So far so good, I love the bed.

I'd like to note my backpain that I felt is lessening. Still getting a good night of sleep, and also still mentally trying to accept that I no longer SINK/CAVE/GET EATEN in my mattress.

I think I will need a fluffier pillow if I ever decide to side sleep since this bed is probably too firm for that.

Any one plan on rotating their 10? I don't think tuft&needle says it is necessary.

Hi maskedrose,

I would rotate any mattress (or flip and rotate a two sided mattress) because it certainly can't do any harm and it can help the mattress soften and wear more evenly which can extend it's useful life (see post #2 here ).

I think I'll just move my pillow from the head of the bed to the foot of the bed every week for the next few months. This thing is too big and heavy to rotate, haha.

My 10inch arrived today... My inital thoughts thus far... I would have spent and extra 10-15 dollars for a box with handles!

I think I will like the mattress. During my pre-pre-teen years my parents bought the family waterbeds... which I never found all that comfortable. By my fresmen year in HS I resorted to sleeping on the floor (my own choosing and yes my parents though i was nuts)... after college I move to an air mattress which was never firm enough... and from that I moved to my the traditional coil mattress that I'm now retiring. We will see...
