My daughter has slept on the same Ikea bed frame and futon-like mattress for about seven years. And it’s still in decent condition. The mattress remains as comfortable as ever.

Or so I thought. I recently swapped beds with her one night, and simply could not get comfortable on hers. It just didn’t feel supportive anymore, like I remember it. It’s no wonder that she’s been sleeping rather poorly the past year.



Based off the company’s suggestions, we selected an Alexander Signature Series model. Like many luxury models you can get on the internet now, this mattress arrived quickly and rolled up inside a box the size of a golf travel bag. What’s nice about that is our staircase is narrow. I’ve had to move several mattresses up and down the stairs, and it’s a major pain. And anyone I’ve asked to help snarls at me. This, however, was a one-man job. Yes the box weighed 75 pounds, but it had built-in handle holes and thus was relatively easy to maneuver up one flight. Once on the bedroom floor, I unboxed it, took the plastic off and watched while it rolled open and flat. My daughter jumped on it and her instant smile told me it was a keeper.

It’s loaded with the latest mattress technology — with durable and breathable, 2.5-inch thick certified non-toxic high density 4 lb. gel memory foam. Then there’s an inch of 4 lb. Visco memory foam, two inches of 1.8 lb. SmartFlow Air Flow Foam, and another six inches of 1.8 lb. Solid Edge Support base foam. It’s also covered by an inch of quilted cool stretch fabric. In total, it’s 12.5 inches tall. To boot, its Thermic Phase Change Cooling Fabric keeps it very cool. You can tell it’s really high quality and well-constructed. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot of poorly built models in recent years. It’s also nice to know that this is made in the U.S.

The mattress we selected was a medium firmness — which we were told was ideal for back and side sleepers. There’s also a luxury firm available for back and stomach sleepers. My daughter says we made the right choice. She’s now been sleeping on it for about a month, and there’s no way she’d let us send it back. For testing purposes, I traded beds with her one night this past weekend. Slept seven solid hours, which was unusually good for me. To me, it felt the right amount of soft without letting me sink in.

Right now we have it directly on the floor — the company suggests it be on a hard surface or slatted frame rather than on a box spring. We offered to get my daughter a frame but she said no. And based on the fact that she’s now had so many consecutive nights of uninterrupted sleep and wakes up in a rested, cheerful mood, I’m not changing a thing.
