On the first night I slept well. But, on the 2nd night (last night) I got 0 hrs of sleep. The middle of the mattress sinks and I feel uncomfortable. I feel like I'm sinking/drowning. I didn't know it was going to be like this. During the purchase, I didn't hop on the mattress. Instead, I just felt the mattress while standing up because I'm a huge germaphobe. I know that was foolish.



What's my best option to remedy this?

Is it returnable?

We started buying bed in a box mattresses years ago partially because t by eye ARE returnable (or provide a refund).

On the receipt it says no exchanges after delivery.

There is always the old trick of putting a sheet of plywood underneath the mattress. People used to do that for a bad back.

Either modify what you have (plywood, etc. under the mattress), or buy a new one (making sure you try it out this time!).

I know exactly what you mean. That layer of soft foam when more than an inch or two thick is almost nauseating to some of us. My only idea of a fix would be to try flipping it over so you sleep on the springs? Not comfortable but maybe tolerable until you can buy a replacement.

Or sell it quickly on craigslist or facebook marketplace or similar for half price.

How expensive was it? Does it sit on a box spring? If not you might purchase a box spring. Another option would be to put one of those egg carton foam toppers under the mattress not on top as suggested.

Many people think they want a soft mattress but in reality you want more of a medium firm or even firm.

Where did you purchase it from? See if they will replace it with a firmer mattress even if the receipt says no returns. Most mattress companies do offer a return policy.

Sell it and get something that works.

Sleep is so important, if you cannot use get good sleep with that mattress,
it is next to worthless.

Figure out what type of mattress is comfortable for you before purchasing. I personally like firm.
