Memory Foam Mattress In A Box Has Become Mainstream

Shopping for a new mattress at a retail mattress store, such as Mattress Firm, is a thing of the past. Now, there are plenty of shops online where you can furnish your bedroom with a high-quality memory foam mattress or even fancy hybrid mattress. One of the interesting aspects of shopping for these mattresses online is they often come as a “mattress-in-a-box.” One might ask, how do you fit a mattress inside of a box. Well, we will get to that eventually. First, we will take a look at what a mattress-in-a-box is, the disadvantages and advantages of memory foam mattresses in a box, and whether it is worth it or something you should skip.

Mattresses in a Box – Are They Worth It?

What is a mattress in a box?

Good question. It might seem strange to imagine a king-size mattress inside of a massive box, but this isn’t quite the case. Mattress-in-a-box brands are almost always foam mattresses, including the top sellers, Tuft & Needle and Casper. There is also Purple Mattress, who utilize their own innovative material design for the mattress, so, shout out to all of them! The similarity is, Nighslee, as well as the other brands mentioned a moment ago, are all bed-in-a-box brands. You order the bed online, and it is vacuum-sealed, rolled up and packaged in a box directly to your doorstep.

Pros and Cons

Okay, so you have decided to look into getting a mattress-in-a-box, but what are the advantages of mattress-in-a-box beds and the disadvantages?



Sleep Trial – Most brands, including Nighslee, come with a sleep trial to test your newly purchased mattress for a certain time.

Convenient – The mattress is shipped directly to your doorstep. You don’t need to spend a couple hours driving around to look at different retail mattress stores.

Cost-effective – Mattress-in-a-box brands are typically under $1000, which is the top-of-the-line mattress. Typically, they average around $600 or less.

Service – Most mattress-in-a-box brands have excellent customer service which is available most times of the day to help you out!

Free space – Typically mattress-in-a-box brands are a little more compact than traditional luxurious mattresses. A queen-size is still a queen-size, but the whole frame of the mattress is a percentage smaller leaving your room feeling more open.

Lighter – Typically mattress-in-a-box mattress are a lot easier to move around the house than a traditional mattress.



Smell – Since most mattress in a box brands are made of foam, there is a potential problem of having some odor or off-gassing, but that normally subsides after a few weeks.

Heat – Memory foam mattresses do retain more heat than traditional mattresses, so there could also be a problem of sleeping too hot most nights.

Waiting – Most mattress-in-a-box brands recommend you give the mattress a few days to “air out,” which will give a pretty mattress to look at, but not sleeping on for a short time.

Overall, the advantages seem to outweigh the disadvantages, but ultimately the choice is yours! At Nighslee, we help make that choice for you. The Nighslee Mattress has all of the advantages above and significantly reduces the disadvantages. In the case of smell, using all-natural processes and materials, there is no off-gassing with Nighslee.
