We went up and checked them out on Sat. and found what we thought was the perfect bed. It was really firm but still had a bit of give to it. I loved it. We bought the mattress and it was delivered yesterday. We slept on it last night and it was a step above sleeping on the ground. It was really really firm. Does anyone know if a bed will loosen up a little bit over the first couple weeks?
Should be rent a uhaul and exchange it for the next up mattress...which of course is $1000 and then if we don't like that one, we get an IKEA store credit for $1000, no refund. What would you do?

We have a twin IKEA bed that has been used by all my kids and is currently with the last one, but we never opted for the IKEA mattresses. You can do better at a retail store or mattress store. If you are not satisfied with the mattress I'm not sure how the exchange or return policies are. For most mattresses, once you use it you cannot return it.

if memory serves me right, Ikea sells 3 basic types of mattresses. a cheapo horrible one, a middle of the line normal memory foam mattress, and a latex lines (something like that) memory foam mattress. each mattress comes in 3 different firmnesses. You can also opt in for a pillow top that feels extremely comfortable. all together it is $$$

You have 90 days to decide. Give it a few weeks and see if it ends up to be what you tested in the store (remember, those mattresses are WELL broken-in). DM me if you have any more questions (I work there).

Also remember that the one you checked out in the store had most likely been there a while (if it was a display model) and has had its share of people trying it out, kids jumping on it, etc... That said, it's probably had a bit of break-in time which is why it felt firm, but still had some give.

I can't speak for IKEA mattresses, as I've never gotten one, but all of my beds for the past 15 years have been IKEA bedframes. I think they're great.

If you have kids, let them jump on the bed for a couple of weeks so they're just as broken in as the ones in the store. If you don't have kids, do it yourself!

We have an Ikea mattress and mattress pad - the top part. We've had it almost 5 years, and it definitely takes some time to break in, although it has held up better than any other mattress we've owned. I do think the mattress pad part really helps with the softness - when I was pregnant we took the topper off because it was too soft. Their website details the 90 day policy.

Ooooh and if you don't have kids I know of another great way to break it in and get some great exercise at the same time (nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more) !!!!!!

We ended up renting a Uhaul and taking it back on Sat. I just could not sleep on the thing! I actually hurt after laying on it for a half hour. We took the store credit and ended up buying a whole new bed from Original Mattress Factory. I'll be hitting up Ikea for everything I usually buy at Target...well at least until I use the $490
