Memory foam mattresses are a novel take on the conventional sleeping habitat. Where we humans were once subjected to sleeping on piles of hay (if we were lucky) we now have all our curves and shapes gently supported throughout the night. Memory foam mattresses offer superior all-night support for elbows, hips, shoulders, and especially knees. Tomorrow Sleep’s new memory foam mattress is the latest such design to hit the market, and we’re here to rave about it!
Memory foam mattresses come in many shapes, sizes, and compromises in overall design quality. Yes, you read that last part right—many memory foam mattresses offer little more “memory” foam than a half-inch slice on top meant to disguise the regular-old-uncomfortable foam beneath! The Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress features a 1” thick top layer of breathable memory foam meant to promote extra airflow, a secondary 2“ thick layer of contour-focused memory foam, and a third layer of denser polyfoam to offer rigid support. This dynamic blend is like a soft hand, connected to a gentle arm, attached to a powerful torso—all focused on providing your body with all-night comfort.
Off-gassing is a common issue among memory foam mattresses where gaseous chemicals are released before initial use. This phenomenon is caused by a family of chemicals known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and is generally regarded as being really nasty. One of the most outrageous places these compounds are found in crib mattresses where infants are exposed to a constant flow of these toxic compounds. Tomorrow Sleep’s memory foam mattress is made with materials that are Certi-PUR certified to be free of these types of nasty little ingredients. For more information on just how much better Certi-PUR certified products are, check out their website.
Memory foam mattresses are incredible for those that love to sleep on their sides. The unparalleled contour support helps reduce pressure points throughout the night, helping to stay immersed in those deep sleep cycles which give that refreshed feeling upon waking. The Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress is, in our opinion, one of the best on the market to date. This opinion involves several factors, each of which is due some context. Take a moment with us here, and we’ll guarantee—if you’re in the market for a memory foam mattress—that you won’t be disappointed.
This mattress is designed for sale on the larger consumer market so, expectedly-so, its firmness is somewhat in the middle of the road. We’d say this mattress falls somewhere between a 5.5 and 7 on a firmness scale of 0-10—with a 10 being the firmest. Unless you’ve got an affinity for ultra-plush or ultra-firm mattresses, you’ll find this one to be just right.
Overall quality is, in our opinion, where the Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress really shines. Decades of mattress manufacturing know-how back Tomorrow Sleep’s products, which becomes clearly-evident in one’s first impression. The overall quality of this mattress is higher than any other similarly-priced memory foam mattress we’ve seen so far. Our overall opinion of this mattress is that for the price offered; its overall quality is second to none.
If you’ve been searching for a new mattress for any reasonable length of time, then you’ve likely heard this term getting tossed around. Off-gassing occurs when mattresses containing VOCs (those nasty chemicals we mentioned earlier) are released before first use. This nasty phenomenon is pretty much experienced solely among mattresses that are vacuum-sealed for shipping since the airtight quarters prohibit the gasses from escaping. The Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattresses Certi-PUR certified materials ensure you’ll experience no such issues. We did notice some slight chemical-y odor before initial use but believe it’s just the smell of new foam materials. This odor was never unpleasant and disappeared quickly.
Pricing is another area you’ll find the Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress to really outshine the competition. The $500-$800 price range, in our opinion, has been suffering from a distinct lack of buyer options for some time. Tomorrow Sleep’s memory foam mattress is priced at ~$800 for a Queen size but can be had for ~$675 with their promotional discounts. Don’t worry about missing the deals though—it’s been our experience that mattress companies always have some sale going on! Nonetheless, the final price one can expect to pay for the Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress falls into a price range that we feel was in dire need of more quality options.
When shopping for a new mattress, at some point, one has to take a leap of faith and make a decision. There’s no way to be 100% confident that choice will be the best option—which is why it’s so important to understand the return policies, warranties, and any other legal jargon you might have to deal with. Tomorrow Sleep has, in our opinion, go out of their way to provide a risk-free way to try their products, make the entire buying process as comfortable as possible, and offer a very legitimate warranty for their memory foam mattress. Below you’ll find a quick rundown of the basic service options offered for the Tomorrow Sleep memory foam mattress but, if you’re seriously considering making a purchase, we suggest you read their customer service page for a more detailed explanation.
Pretty standard these days, but a must-have consideration in our opinion. Free shipping and discounts are built into the price of any product, but it almost feels like an insult when a manufacturer doesn’t offer them. Nonetheless, Tomorrow Sleep’s packaging process allows them to fold, roll, and vacuum-seal their products into a conveniently-sized box that ships free via carries such as FedEx or UPS. Your new mattress will arrive on your doorstep just like a new pillow might—albeit a much larger and heavier pillow!
Shit happens—all the time. Even the best products are susceptible to having issues, so it’s important to know that manufacturers are willing to make things right in such cases. Tomorrow Sleep’s memory foam mattress is covered by a 10-year warranty during which time you can rest assured that a full replacement would be provided should you find anything wrong with the mattress. A 10-year warranty is agreed upon by many industry analysts as being the maximum length of time that one should expect their mattress to last before it may become a health risk. This means that while your new mattress might last 20 years, it’d likely become quite unsanitary after the 10 year mark. Obviously, there’s no line in the sand to define at what point this might happen but 10 year warranties are a pretty standard way of saying “hey, don’t push your luck.”
In contrast to warranties, in-home-trial periods only get better with age! That’s to say; when buying a new mattress, you want to be able to try it out for as long as possible with the option of being able to get a refund. Even for those spending hours researching and comparing mattress, there is little absolution when it comes to knowing how a mattress will sleep—until it’s been slept on. Tomorrow Sleep’s memory foam mattress comes with a 365-day in-home-trial during which you’re free to return their mattress for a complete refund! That’s impressive in our opinion, and more than enough time to guarantee you know what you’re getting for your money.
As you may have gleaned from our site, we spend a lot of time looking at mattresses. We’ve seen good mattresses, great mattresses, and we’ve also seen downright horrible mattresses. We’ve seen hybrid mattresses, organic mattresses, and even decent traditional coil mattresses—just kidding—those things cause nightmares. More to the point—Tomorrow Sleep’s memory foam mattress is an incredible product that’s available at an incredible price. We’d recommend anyone shopping for a memory foam mattress give serious consideration to this one and remember—you’ve got 365 days to decide whether you’re happy with your purchase!
