5.0 out of 5 stars Luxury comfort for a bargain price, 25 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My first instinct after looking through Hypnia's mattresses on Amazon was that something didn't feel right. They were too cheap, and the reviews were too good. As if they were manufactured or even fake. But I have not known Amazon to host fake reviews and after deliberating about it, I decided to take the plunge and order the Hypnia King size 12" deep Visco mattress.

It comes vacuum packed in a compact (but extremely heavy) box. The packaging is convenient for such a large product. Out of the box, it took only a matter of hours to decompress to the correct size, however I gave it about 5 days in total (Hypnia recommend 48 hours or so) as I was waiting for the bed frame to arrive. The mattress is covered in a high quality feeling cover, which looks very nice and is soft and friendly to the touch.

There is one thing to bear in mind, and that is that the mattress does smell rather bad at first. The smell (a chemically fishy smell) was unpleasant and I definitely would not have liked to sleep on it for the first few days. It didn't make the room smell terrible, but lying or sitting on it, you were definitely aware of it. Thankfully by the time my frame was ready (4-5 days) the smell was mostly gone, and after a full week I would say it had vanished altogether. I cannot detect a trace of it now (nearly 2 months).

I was unsure whether a memory foam mattress would really live up to the hype. The mattress feels very firm to the touch initially, but it conforms around you (subtley - you don't sink deeply in to it), supporting your body in all areas. Much more support in fact than a spring mattress can provide. This results in an unexpectedly comfortable experience. It is odd because we normally associate soft things with comfort, so to experience comfort from a mattress that initially feels so hard it odd!

An added bonus were the pillows, two of which are included. They are contoured, and used the correct way around (with the thickest part at your neck), provide amazing neck support (especially for a side sleeper like myself) and a very comfortable sleep. The only down side is they are much smaller than a regular pillow, so end up lost in a normal pillow cover. Their small size also makes them unsuitable for using like bolster pillows to prop you up when reading. A Large Traditional Shape Memory Foam Pillow sorted that out.

The only down side I can think of is that you'll have to look carefully to find fitted sheets that are deep enough to fit this mattress properly. I got some regular ones at Asda, which fit OK, but are not perfect.

After 2 months of sleeping on it, I am extremely pleased and dumbfounded that I spent so little on such a good mattress. And the price is even less now than I paid! I thorougly recommend this product.
