It REALLY IS a “cool” mattress! Not hot at all!
By Dane Anderson, Sycamore on April 30
I’m 28 and work construction. I frame homes, work on equipment, constantly lifting and moving things. I wear a 50lb nailbag every day. Took the pain away from my shoulders, neck, back within a few nights of sleep. Haven’t ordered any extras yet. It really is a cool and comforting mattress to sleep on. The mattress was ready to sleep on that night. We opened it at 7am, let it form and went to bed at about midnight. This is the best mattress I have ever slept on! I would reccomend it to anyone. Made a little custom cedar frame for it, love it!
Getting a good night's sleep in a great mattress was something I never thought about it until I finally did!
By Amy on May 1
This is my first ever mattress review and most likely my last. I'm slightly old school, officially from the baby boomer generation. I grew up with the traditional box spring and mattress. When we needed a new mattress, which wasn't often, we went to the nearest department store. As I got older, I became more familiar with the mattress stores and buying a mattress was like buying a car. Frankly, I always waited 12-15 years before I replaced my mattress. Now, I'm understanding how much of a mistake that was. Getting a good night's sleep in a great mattress was something I never really thought about it, until I actually did and realized what I missed out on all these years.
My mattress quest started about 6 months ago. I was fascinated with the Mattress in a Box phenomenon and I wanted to find out why people were buying their mattresses online and learn more about memory foam. I was familiar with the traditional box spring and mattress and I never even tried a memory foam mattress before but with all the hype with Casper and Tuft n Needle, I wanted to find out why people were buying these brands without the typical rest test.
Since I live in LA, billboard central, I kept on seeing billboards for Casper everywhere and was constantly reading news articles and reviews online and thought I would start there. I ordered a Casper directly from the manufacturer, even with 0 percent financing. Just like they stated, my mattress showed up 2 days later in this tall skinny condensed box. So I moved my old mattress outside, which was about 13 years old and moved my Casper box to my bedroom. Now the fun part, unboxing my Casper, it was so cool to see my mattress conform to its correct size. I was ready to try out my new memory foam Casper mattress.
After my first few nights, I wasn't exactly sure if it was for me. I felt it was too stiff, I would of liked it to be softer, it felt to flat for me. Although, I was liking the memory foam. It just was too hard for me. Given Casper had a no questions asked warranty/return policy, I was contemplating sending it back for a full refund but I had another idea instead. I own a small bungalow in Palm Springs that is rented quite often on Airbnb. I decided to take my Casper to my Palm Springs bungalow and let it reside there for my renters.
But I wasn't done with the Mattress in the Box, I liked the memory foam, but I just felt it wasn't quite right for me. So I began my research to some of the other competitors: Tuft n Needle, Luna, and finally Snuggle-Pedic. I had a friend who had a Tuft N Needle and asked him if I could stop over to try it out. I actually liked it better than the Casper but I wasn't completely sold on it. I decided to dig deeper and did more research online and on Amazon. Being a Prime Amazon Member, I'm a huge Amazon fan. As I was researching on Amazon, I came across Snuggle-Pedic. It was even manufactured in the LA and it had great reviews on Amazon and it was even the highest rated memory foam mattress on Amazon. So I decided I was going to give it a try. It was less than the Casper and I received it within 3 business days. Once again, I went thru the unwrapping process, so fun, my favorite part. Now it was time to try the Snuggle-Pedic.
At first glance, it looks very similar to Casper and Tuft N Needle. I ended up purchasing a bamboo cover which was made specifically for this mattress. Well upon laying on my mattress and a good couple weeks of trying it out, I was loving it. It was much softer but still firm. I liked the feel of it and how my back felt after a good night's sleep. I really felt that I had found the perfect mattress. Everything good so far. I know that Snuggle-Pedic will even customize your mattress if it was too hard or too soft. They offer a service where they will pick it up and do the adjustments and return it back to you all free of charge. What a great service but for me, everything was jiving for me. The firmness and the softness was a perfect combination.
As it turns out, after a couple months of using my new Snuggle-Pedic, I couldn't be happier. It was a good fit for me and I was happy to be a content and happy customer of my first memory foam mattress in a box mattress.It pays to do your research and I'm now the biggest advocate for Snuggle-Pedic. Next up, the Snuggle-Pedic Memory Foam Pillow. I will be buying that next to see if I can replace my MyPillows which are just okay. I will follow up with a review on their pillow in the near future.

I was upgrading from a queen to a king mattress and was spinning my wheels reading so many reviews, going to mattress stores to test different kinds, talking with my friends and pretty much drove myself insane. I dragged my feet so long and was now under pressure since I had donated my bed and my new frame had arrived and I still didn't have a mattress. Now I needed one fast and knew Amazon was my best bet at this point. I shifted gears and told myself just make an economical choice and use it temporarily until I find my forever mattress. So after reading reviews I landed on Snuggle Pedic - I ordered it on a Saturday afternoon and received it 48 hours later (I did pay $60 to have it in that time frame which was well worth it). And surprisingly to me I found my forever mattress and it was at an economical price!
I have slept on it for a few weeks before writing this review to be sure it was amazing and it absolutely is! I am a side sleeper only and the comfort level is a 10! The transfer of motion is minimal, when my boyfriend stays now we have no idea when either one of us gets up during the night which is amazing! And I can't feel my cat either when he is walking around bonus! There was absolutely no smell that I have read has been of concern with these types of mattresses. I don't find it to be hot at all. What was an extremely stressful decision for me to make became worth it once I stumbled upon Snuggle Pedic. I loved that the mattress was made in the USA (there were some cheaper versions from China but I decided it was worth it to be made in USA) and thus far the customer service has been amazing (not that I have needed anything but I have contact info should anything come up)! I was able to easily drag the box from my front door to the frame bed, pull it out sideways on the bed out of the box by myself. After unrolling it out of the packaging easily, it inflated to size in a matter of minutes. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase and hope that my review will help you make your decision easier!
My first pain free sleep in a VERY long time
By Ema Volf, Arkansas on June 14,
Between my sciatica and the fact that (despite my best efforts) I'm just aging, it's really hard for me to get a good night's sleep. I'm always a little skeptical about mattresses and such, because I've been let down so many times. However, I always have that hope that maybe one of these will do the trick. I've tried Snuggle-Pedic in the past. I have a wonderful shredded memory foam body pillow from them that has given me so much relief. I figured why not try the mattress? Worst case scenario, I wake up in pain, like I always have. So I gave it a shot.
The shipping on this one was surprisingly fast. Not quite Prime fast, but pretty close. I'm not sure if that's the norm, but this is my experience. When it showed up, HELLO GIANT BOX. I mean, it's a mattress. What do you expect? Box is taller than me, and my kids and cats were forever excited about its arrival, because they knew they'd get first dibs. It's also a REALLY heavy box while the mattress is still inside it. Just a warning.
So before you can do anything with it, you gotta wrangle it out of this box, cut a bunch of tape, and CAREFULLY slice through some plastic wrap. Why all these steps? Because it's deflated (for a lack of a better term) and rolled up so it can fit in a much smaller (but still giant) box. Trust me. You'll prefer the "smaller" box, anyways. Do your best to do all this opening while near your foundation and save yourself the added effort. Because once it's exposed to air, it's gonna expand fast. If it's already in place, less effort for you. Also, make sure you grab that piece of paper that's taped to the plastic. That's your Warranty information. You will want to hang on to that.
So you've just opened this monstrosity, and it's in place. This is probably where you're going to want to drop on top of it and rest from all that work. Go right ahead and give in to that feeling. That's what I did. And my forever achey back and hips popped in probably 6 places just from that. It felt so good. However, you'll notice that if you do that right after opening, it'll have an odd smell. That's just from the memory foam and will fade out in an hour or so. Seriously, it does go away. That smell is there on ANY new memory foam mattress, pillow, or pad. No way around it. Just let it air out.
I'm adding a picture of what it looks like right when you take it out of the box. It has a nice design to it. You see all those holes in the top? Those are actually functional. I overheat all the time with any mattress. I have yet to have issues with overheating since sleeping on this one. The air flow through this mattress and the cover is phenomenal. You can see more on how that works in the diagrams the seller has posted, but I can tell you from experience that it is highly effective. This was noticeable from Night 1. There is also a zipper that goes around the cover so you can remove it and adjust the firmness. I'm quite happy with it how it came.
When it fully inflated and I saw how thick it was, I worried about whether or not my sheets would even fit it. It's thicker than my old mattress, and sometimes I even struggled to fit my sheets on that one. However, the sheets fit with no problems, whatsoever. I'm not sure how I managed that, but I'm glad looks were deceiving.
I received this mattress exactly 2 weeks ago from the day I'm posting this review. I told myself that I would post it the third day that I woke up without pain. Today is it. Two weeks. That's all it took. Were all those days awesome and pain free? Obviously not, or this review would have been posted sooner. I chose the third instead of the first because I wanted to make sure it wouldn't be just a really good week. And I assure you, with all the rain in our area this week, the odds are stacked against me.
This part is IMPORTANT. When you first get a new mattress (ANY mattress, really, but especially memory foam), your body has an adjustment period. It's usually about a week or so of awkward almost pain but mostly just uncomfortable feelings. Mine was legitimate pain, but I also have other issues to deal with and I was upgrading from a really old, terrible mattress. This transition period is your body realigning itself to your new sleep surface. After that realignment, you will (hopefully) notice a positive difference between what your back feels like now and what it did before. If not, there is a 90 day sleep trial for this mattress AND a free customization policy. My experience, however, is a slightly longer adjustment period, but finally a complete lack of pain where I'd always had some. If you have pain, expect results more like mine. Point being, I wanted to make sure you're aware that there is this adjustment period so you don't toss out a perfectly amazing mattress, when you really just are dealing with the realignment stage.
One of the things that caught my eye, though, is that the warranty on this mattress is better than most I've seen. For the first 10 years, the manufacturer is responsible for any parts, labor, and materials. Any needed repairs are covered. You just have to pay shipping. Years 11-20, there's a pro-rated amount to pay (based on how long ago you've purchased this mattress) and shipping and handling. And, of course, this only covers manufacturing defects. You can't just attack your mattress with knives and cigarettes and expect the manufacturer to pay. Common sense (and common decency).
However, my personal opinion, it's recommended to replace your mattress after 10 years, anyways. At that point, I'd probably check to see what NEW Snuggle-Pedic mattresses are out. Yes, I'll probably be sticking with this brand. Between their mattress and their body pillow, my sciatica doesn't wake me up or keep me awake anymore. There is no price that I could ever put on that. Now, I just need to check out some of their other products.
I wish I could leave more than five stars for this unbelievable good mattress.
By Robin on July 17
I wish I could leave more than five stars for this unbelievable good mattress. We were in the market for a new mattress and shopped locally first. As we all know, a comparable Temperpedic or IComfort was way out of our price range. We then started to research the whole online Mattress market and landed on our Snuggle-Pedic/ The thing that caught our eye was the 20 year warranty, The order and delivery of our mattress was prompt and as advertised. It was astonishing to see a king mattress come in such a small but heavy box. We opened one end of the box to slide out the vacuum sealed mattress and realized both ends of the box needed to be opened to get the mattress out of the box..(Oh, this is a two person job for a King size mattress.) We then put the mattress at the foot of our boxspring and lifted it onto the boxspring. Next we carefully cut open the vacuum sealed packaging and removed the packaging from the mattress. Immediately it began to expand and much to our surprise there was NO ODOR. The whole process took 15 minutes as was easy peasy. It is truly amazing that such a high quality mattress can come from a vacuum sealed tube.
Our first nights sleep was extremely comfortable with very little adjustment from our old mattress. We melted into the mattress yet we could not believe how firm.the mattress slept. It also slept very cool in termperature which we also loved.
After 45 or so nights sleeping on our new mattess we can honestly say the following: All of the morning aches and pains in our backs and shoulders are better if not gone. The coolness of the mattress is a welcome change as it has evened out our sleeping temperature throughout the night. We both are sleeping much deeper and through the night due to the complete lack of movement on the mattress when one of us gets out of the bed or rolls over. I have always been a side sleeper but now I find myself sleeping on my back and not moving at all throughout the night.
Our sleep habits have improved by 1000 percent. I am just sad we waited so long to buy this fantastic mattress.
By some super human magic
By Vinny Falcone, Georgia on July 24
When the mattress arrived, I was a bit confused. I said to myself "there's no way that a king size mattress can fit in that box". I was afraid it was the wrong product. I can see a mattress topper fitting in there but an actual mattress? No way!
Turns out, I was wrong. By some super human magic, this huge mattress was packed completely flat and rolled up. That's was pretty awesome to see. Still, I was skeptical that it would end up being as thick as I was expecting. More voodoo! As soon as I sliced open the outer plastic, the mattress instantly puffed up. Perhaps i'm easy to amuse but I got quite a kick out of it.
As someone who is very familiar with memory foam, I was fully expecting a funky smell. There's something about vacuum sealing that leaves a stench. It normally dissipates within a hour or so but this time, there was absolutely no smell, whatsoever!
I've been using the mattress since June 2nd (the day it arrived). Right off the bat, the bed was (and still is) Amazing! My wife and I already had a memory foam mattress that was okay, but I am a big guy so I typically would sink to the box spring a lot. With this mattress, I don't even come close to the box spring! The soft to firm ratio was perfect right out of the box!
I believe everyone's first concern when buying a new mattress is that it usually takes some time for your back to adjust, which can leave you with a few days of poor sleep. Thank goodness that this was not the case with this mattress. I slept better on night one than I had in years with my old mattress. Granted, I even with my years of severe back pain, I have slept more comfortably in this bed than any bed I have ever owned. I feel like it perfectly supports my entire back and keeps me aligned through the night.
The even better news is that the bed just got more comfortable with time. Like I said before, I am a big guy (300+ lbs.). You would think that with that much weight the bed wouldn't bounce back as well. Well, you would be wrong! Every time I get into bed there are no dips or sags. It is probably best, like with all mattresses, to rotate it periodically but so far I haven't felt the need. I really believe that this bed can do no wrong!
I am extremely happy with my purchase. I no longer have pain in my body and I sleep like a log. According to my wife, I don't snore like I used to. I chalk that up to finally being able to sleep soundly - which allows her to sleep soundly too. I wake up refreshed and ready to take on whatever the day has in store. Hands down, the best investment I've ever made!

I had my last mattress for only two years and it has been messing my back up and have been getting terrible sleep. I’ve purchased Snuggle Pedic pillows and body pillows in the past year and have been EXTREMELY happy. There have been tons of reviews on competitor products but since I’ve been happy with Snuggle Pedic’s other products I figured why not... best decision ever! The mattress is comfy, breathable and just awesome. I got it delivered in two days. My dog fell asleep on it before I even went to bed! Lol. Anyways... I’m very happy with the mattress and recommend it if you are looking for one.
