Soft yet supportive

October 13, 2018

Trinidad, TX

Serta has the Stay listed as right between soft and firm on their scale but I'd say it leans towards the softer side, it's the type of mattress where you instantly sink and it molds to your body but it still feels very supportive through the night. I feel like mattresses are definitely personal preference, what's too hard or too soft for one person might be perfect for another but for me this was just about perfect. It's soft yet supportive and I don't have any of hip pain and leg numbness I experience with firm mattresses. Other than comfort, there were two things that stood out about the Stay to me, the first being the 4 layers of foam. The top layers give it that cushy sink in softness and the lower layers keep it supportive. If you press down hard enough especially at the edges you can feel the change in firmness. The second was the cover, it's soft and cottony and here's the big plus, it unzips all the way around (there's about an inch that does not unzip). I haven't tried it yet but it seems like it will remove completely for washing and underneath the mattress is covered with a cottony blue fabric. I have a 3-year-old and accidents happen so I'm probably overly excited that it seems to be removable and washable. It's a simple thing but it's a game changer and I can't believe all mattresses aren't made this way! Set up is fast and easy. The king box is roughly 21"x21"x46" and shipping weight showed 127 lbs, small enough to fit easily in a trunk and while heavy I was able to drag it in and set it up alone. Definitely get it on the platform or box spring before opening. It expands quickly and will be the full 12" within minutes. There is a minimal smell from the memory foam which I expected, it dissipates pretty quickly but I did open a window for a few hours to help air it out.

Serta Stay Mattress

August 14, 2019

ElaineJ1565806101

We purchased the king size for an adjustable frame we had just purchased. My husband had been sleeping on an air type bed for years which he said helped his back issues and swore he would not buy anything else. We went to several stores and tried several mattresses and he kept coming back to this one which we finally bought. My husband loves this mattress and has only one problem and that is making himself get up in the mornings. He says the mattress just feels so good. The box had wheels which made it easy to get home and into the house. The only problem which was quickly resolved was the mattress material is slick and the mattress pad would move and bunch up, I purchased a pad that had water resistant backing (more of a rubber backing) and now the pad and sheets stay in place.

Perfect For All Types Of Sleepers

I can't say enough good things about this bed!!! I admit I was skeptical at getting a mattress that was delivered in a box, but I am so glad that I did get it! It is hands down the most comfortable mattress I have had. It is so nice not having to worry about springs or creaks when you are moving around. The mattress is great for all types of sleepers as well. I love to sleep on my back, but I can never seem to get comfortable in doing so,. This bed lets me sleep on my back and I wake without any back pain. The mattress conforms to all my curves and hugs everything just right. I also can move around without feeling like I am disturbing my partner and he sleeps just as well as I do as a side sleeper. I would definitely recommend this mattress and will be purchasing another one in the future.

We were well overdue for a new mattress and in researching we chose to try out a bed in a box. After looking into many, many different ones online we decided to try one we could find locally. Went around to several local stores and sat, plopped, and laid on so many before choosing the Serta Stay. We liked that it was cool to the touch, I'm a hot sleeper. It was so much more comfortable than almost everything we tried and a really great value! Not to mention it fit in my car! Had to put the rear seats down in my hatchback, but didn't need a truck to get it home. We have had this bed for a few weeks now and are both really happy with this mattress!! We sleep so much better, both have noticed we wake so much less than we used to and wake up feeling better than we have in a while. No more sore hips, shoulders and backs!! We actually can't wait to climb into bed every night, so much so that we like to head there early and watch our evening television in bed instead of the livingroom! Overall excellent choice! Very, very pleased!

I'm very picky when it comes to mattresses as I like firm and supportive but with a good amount of cushion. I also tend to get hot in the middle of the night. This mattress however, has totally switched the game! It is absolutely amazing. Since I have been sleeping on it I wake up feeling more rested and that nagging shoulder pain I would wake up with some mornings is gone. I also haven't woken up in the middle of the night hot, so I am loving that as well! My sheets fit well also, and I'm so happy I didn't have to look for special deep pocket sheets that some mattresses require now. I have absolutely no complaint about this mattress and would recommend it to anyone to give it a try. My only regret is not finding this mattress sooner. I have a lot of catching up to do on sleep!

I have bought several mattresses over the years for myself and my children. This mattress is by far the best. It is soft and comfortable. It is easy to get out of the box. Take the cover plastic off and it puffs right up. I slept so well the first night using the mattress. It is not stiff or too soft. Perfect height for me. Very pleased. And will be making more purchases for my children.

Great all around mattress for a variety of sleepers!

I’ve had my Serta Stay for about two weeks now and have been sleeping on it for the entire time. As far as first impressions go I am pleasantly surprised!! I like a very supportive mattress while my partner prefers a softer cradling. This mattress met both of our needs! It was soft yet supportive for my back issues and allowed my partner to sleep in his usual crazy positions in comfort. I was able to get in and out of bed in the middle of the night without waking my partner, and I fell asleep quickly upon returning to bed. There was no strong odor upon unpacking the mattress, popped up into shape very quickly, and was ready for sleeping on the same day! It’s quite heavy so naturally I would recommend assistance with unpacking. The mattress is very well made, no loose threads, and the memory foam doesn’t get too warm. Easily will last several years in my option if not longer. 10/10 would recommend!

I was extremely surprised that Serta made a mattress that was this affordable. I purchased the twin size Allerton for my kids and they have been sleeping great! I'm comfy too when I lay with them for story time. I would definitely recommend.
