The 10 in. Tuft & Needle Diary 15 Apr 2014 10:45 #71

That sounds pretty much like what I'm after. I might just have to give it a try. Thank you!

I have the 10 and have been sleeping on it for 2 weeks. I love it for any budget frankly. In fact, prior to this one, I had returned a > $2000 beautyrest black and paid the huge fees. I like this one way better. I will say I initially thought it would be too firm after the first two nights. But that was probalby because I've been on plush innersprings most of my life. As to how it feels, first off I don't like memory foam as I find most sleep hot. I'd say you get between 1 to 2 inches of "sink" and zero hotness. I'd say it's a bit nicer than a cushioned floor feel. If you like your mattresses on the firmer side, it's worth a try with the easy return process. Even if I found it too firm, I'd probably just buy a topper than deal with standard mattress companies. Happy to try answer any other questions. I'm thrilled with this purchase.

Hi Enrico10,

I don't even know what polyfoam feels like to sleep on.


Most mainstream mattresses (including most innersprings) use polyfoam in the comfort layers but they are usually in softer layers and polyfoam has a very wide range of firmness/softness choices. It's a fast response material (unlike memory foam which is a slow response material) but it's generally not as contouring or resilient as latex which is also a fast response material.

Polyfoam mattress can have a very wide range of different "feels" and firmness or comfort levels because there are thousands of different designs and firmness levels that can be used in each layer inside each mattress but it may be worth trying some of the Ikea polyfoam mattresses if there is one near you to get a general sense of what a poly foam mattress can feel like in very general terms even though they won't be the same as the Tuft and Needle because they use a different layering design or thickness, different types or grades of polyfoam, and different firmness levels for the polyfoam layers.

The Ikea polyfoam mattresses include ...

www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80272351/

www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70277392/

You can also see some comments and pictures in post #3 here and post #61 here but again I would keep in mind that this would only give you a very general sense of what a polyfoam mattress can feel like but none of the Ikea mattresses have the same 3 layer design or would have the same "feel" or firmness or comfort level as the Tuft & Needle mattress.

I have been searching a long time for a mattress that won't leave me hot like memory foam and won't sag like an innerspring. I came across the Tuft & Needle, but it seemed too "futon-ish" for me. Then I read a couple other sites and stumbled on this thread. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have contributed your thoughts and feedback.

I am going to pitch the 10" to my wife and hopefully soon we'll take the plunge.

Thanks again!

How long do these mattresses take to arrive? Is there still a backlog?

Is it easy to move this mattress around? Does it have handles to carry or turn?

No handles... I haven't tried to move mine yet so I can't say how hard it would be to carry but I don't think it would be that hard to turn (going to do that tonight)

I ordered on 4/11 also, and was told it would be 5-7 days after purchase for the order to be shipped. I'm hoping it will ship Monday, or Tuesday.
