When writing memory foam mattress reviews like this, there is one product that tends to stand out. For me it is this bed. I love the height, and I love how it sleeps. My Classic Brands memory foam mattress review has been more most favorite to write about.
When my wife and I decided to fix up the guest bedroom in our house we moved our Zinus foam mattress into it and bought a new memory foam mattress for our master bedroom. We looked hard at what mattress we were going to buy and ended up deciding on Classic Brands.
Classic Brands Memory Foam Mattress Review
As I write this review we are going on several months of usage of the new bed. So out of all the memory foam mattress reviews on this page, this one will likely be updated over time as needed.
- Mattress size: 80″ x 76″ x 14″ King (other sizes available in this model as well)
- Mattress weight: 142 lbs
- Warranty: 25 years! 10 year full warranty, + 15 more pro-rated (check with manufacturer for specifics)
- Return Policy: 30 day return policy
- Break in Period: Manufacturer says to allow for 2 weeks
- Firmness: Medium Firm to firm
Layers Of Foam
One of the things that caused my wife and I to be so drawn to this bed was that it has a gel memory foam top layer. Many of the new and higher end beds are using gel foam as they claim it is cooler and more comfortable. We found this bed to be just right in regards of heat. It is very cozy, but not with the slight edge of warmness like the Zinus mattress we love.
- 2 inch ventilated cool gel foam top layer
- 2 inch memory foam support layout
- 2 inch memory foam comfort layer
- 8 inch high-density base foam support layer
Classic Brands Memory Foam Mattress – Personal Use And Thoughts
While all of the memory foam mattress purchases we have made turned out to be great beds. The Classic Brands 14 Inch Cool Gel that we currently use in our master bedroom is our favorite.
At first my wife thought it was the firmest bed we had owned, but has stated that it feel less so now that we have been using it for several months. The break in period where it really began to cradle us when we slept was only a few weeks. Out of the other beds this one seems to provide the most support. It just feels more comfortable overall, in any position.
In the winter months we still are turning the heat down a few degrees at night. However, we also tend to use a heavier comforter during the cooler months.
The offgassing didn’t seem as strong-smelling with this mattress. But that never really bothered us before with the other beds. We just kept the bedroom door closed the first couple days and cracked a window.
One negative thing to report in Classic Brands memory foam mattress review is that this bed is really heavy. At 142 pounds it can be a chore moving it around. Rotating it every couple of months is not an issue, but taking the mattress cover off to wash can be a hassle for one to person to do. It requires both my wife and I to remove and replace the mattress cover. Doing so alone is possible, but takes twice as long.
The motion isolation on this bed is fantastic. Just as good as our other beds. I still remember the days long ago when my wife and I would hassle and annoy each other by changing sleep positions on a spring mattress. If you and your partner have this issue, by all means get a memory foam mattress. You both will immediately begin to get a better night’s sleep!
Edge strength on this bed is better than on any of the others we own. Again, neither the wife or I spend extended periods of time sitting at the edges of our bed where this would be a problem.
Dormia, also know as Classic Brands, has been in business since 1991. They have an “A+” rating with the Better Business Bureau. With the warranty they provide on their beds, they really stand behind their product and it shows.
Compared to the other beds my wife and I purchased, this bed did not have a lot of reviews compared to other beds found on the internet. One of the things that caught our attention with this mattress was the content of information in the reviews that we did find. Nearly all were detailed and highly positive. The other versions of this bed, such as the 12 inch thick mattress, is supposedly a little softer than the 14 inch, and has excellent reviews online as well.
My wife and I like all of our memory foam beds, but this one is our favorite, and it’s great for any sleep position.
