For a mattress that has been used on for only 1 yr, the plush surface is beginning to show some body impressions. I probably would have been best off with a firm mattress for the same price.

But the customer service provided by Greg was by far the best in any industry. He was always attentive. I almost was going to switch up to a firm before the first 30 days but he recommended i give it a full 30 days and once the first 30 days was complete the comfort and support was better as my body needed to adjust to the new mattress. However over time the support level diminished and it was too soft for my back. By then it was beyond the swapping period.

The purchase was handled professionally from start to finish. The finance terms could not be beat. And, the free TV was the frosting on the cake. We are very satisfied and we will definitely consider Gardner White and seek out sales associate Lenny B. for future purchases.

    So far, so good. We got this mattress 2 weeks ago and have been sleeping well without back pain or losing circulation. We'd had a Beautyrest previously and had been happy for about 5 1/2 years until we started feeling like we were sleeping in two canyons on either side of the bed... Because I'm a light sleeper I had a non-negotiable committment to buy another BeautyRest. Just to compare we did try some Sertas and some TempurPedic. Sertas almost felt like waterbeds compared to the BeautyRest. The TempurPedic was actually better than BeautyRest at reducing motion transfer but we weren't willing to spend that much. I'd say the durability score is preliminary because we've only had it for two weeks but I'll try to update after a few months...

    If you like a very firm mattress, this is for you! I bought this mattress because I have a very bad lower back - degenerated lumbar disks and need good support. I'm 5'9", 130 lbs. This mattress has a lot of foam on the top above it's firm coils and was very comfortable in the store. I've had this 2 years now and it's never felt like the one in the store. It's VERY FIRM. When I returned to the store w/complaints that this mattress is much firmer than the 'same' one in the store, I was told that the foam would 'loosen up' over time. In the interim, I should remove all the bedding from the bed and walk all over on it w/hard soled shoes to 'loosen up' the foam. The foam has never loosened up and I'm now seeking my 2nd mattress topper which will be 3-4" of soft foam. I will say, the support is there in this bed and it's got no sags in it, but I'm not very big and what weight I do have is spread over the length of the bed w/my height. My hips and shoulders hurt unbearable w/o any sort of topper.

    The sidewall collapsed within 3 years of owning the mattress. The extra sidewall support was one of the reason we purchased the mattress. The mattress retains your body impression. I have a cal king and we have a hump (feels more like a hill when you are sleeping and try to move to the middle) in the middle of the bed as my wife and I sleep closer to the edge of the bed.

    If you want to spend thousands on a mattress and box spring that you cook on and when you complain receive a, letter that Simmons doesn't warranty comfort, then this is the mattress for you. I wouldn't recommend this mattress or company to my worst enemy.

    After about 8 years the foam top has permanent impressions, almost 2" in some spots.

    Buy a less expensive mattress and a good quality foam top so you can replace just the foam top when it breaks down.

    This is my 3rd Macys bed. Stearns n Foster. Firm bed. English Meadow. Sunk in middle. Now, this Beautyrest Black Label $2000.00 Kamryn Firm bed, has done same thing. After few weeks, it sunk. Like Titanic. I am 5' 4", 148 lbs. Avg USA weight for female (true!). And I sunk. Hold on kids, it gets worse. As a perimenopausal women (good times folks), i now have night sweats (bummer) time to time-not nightly. Last 4 mins. so, i bought this 'cool' gel firm bed, for: coolness, support, comfort. As a clinician in healthcare, I was thrilled. Till got home.Its cool alright, until i got 'hot'. ...then, it 'saved' the heat .For 10minutes but brochures, says 'holes /weaves/breathes to keep you cool' . Not so. And then I sunk. So, Titanic meets hot summer day = no sleep, and an empty wallet. Macys, does not 'own' any ownership, Like Shaggy song' wasnt me' How can you charge $2000 and look other way. Must be me. Of course it is, a dietitan , healthy, it must be me. Must. I must be putting Charlie Brown rocks in my pants at night. LOL. Or, is Macys using 'poor quality grade foam' since at discount prices (see industry websites on low-quality foam and how it makes beds sink), underpaid staff making beds on assembly Ford truck line. No, I think Macys , you are know like Sears. And Wal Mart. Too big, too fast, 'get em out and sell' industry. Mattresses are huge commitment, and to not return one is dreadful. I am returning one today. and they want me to buy a Hotel Vitagenic Gel Firm instead. I am afraid to (cant blame me). REviews arent good. I think I need a tent. A nice tent. Beach towel in my bedroom. As I can take my $2000 and go to Caribbean. If anyone knows about Macys Hotel Collection (guy said 'they are hand made) -he is wrong, the Aireloom high end-cant pay my mortgage ones are - Hotel Vitagenic Gel-Firm for $2000-$3000 , let me know........what has happened America, to great beds? Kathie Lee, are you out there? maybe her shops have a straw bed I can use........sorry, I am not sleeping, can you tell? LOL Joanne from Boston......................

      The warranty explains that theese are not designed for people over 250 lbs.
      I am not 200 lbs & my wife is not near that, however in just 4 years i must kick this mattress to the curb. They have sagged so bad that we each sleep in what we call our own bowls, and if we want to cuddle someone has to lay on what we call the ridge in the middle of the bed. This king size piece of crap set me back $3200 and only lasted 4 years. the only good review is by someone who hasn't had it that long yet, give it time! Don't buy, don't be as sorry as we are.

        I feel like such a sucker. In the store this mattress absolutely wooed me and the technology, as described by the salesman, made sense to me.

        This is a $5000 mattress set. I spend this kind of money because I have degenerative disc disease and bulging discs and once I wake up in pain, the pain stays with me all day. 

        Not only do I wake up in pain, but after just a few weeks I am no longer comfortable. I toss and turn all night unless I taking a sleeping pill because the bed is SO uncomfortable. I actually dread going to bed now.

        Thank goodness I have a 100 day comfort guarantee from the retailer. This bed is going back. I wish I had done prior research. My research is leading me to the latex beds. 

        PLEASE DON"T BUY THIS!

          Take $2500, buy lottery tickets--better way to spend your money. I weigh 135 husband weighs 220. Both sides of bed sags. Warranty is useless, the bed must show 2" if sag without a person on it..Our bed is atleast 8" with a person on it--- but that doesn't count. Simmons used to make a great mattress-- we were replacing a 20 year old Simmons Beauty Rest... THAT WAS a great matttress. Would like to give it LESS than 1 star-- but this site doesnt allow that.
