There are a number of ways that companies cut costs, but we refuse to compromise.
Many people unsuspectingly order compressed foam mattresses. These mattresses are compacted for extended periods of time, which puts stress on the materials.
In the short term, some of these mattresses don’t fully decompress. They may remain curled up at the ends or have irregularities in the foam that become noticeable beneath a person's bodyweight.
Long term problems are more likely because of the additional stress that was put on the beds when they were compressed.
Many of the same companies selling compressed mattresses also sell do-it-yourself foundations. These foundations are packaged in small boxes with a number of nuts, bolts, and other materials that require assembly.
