Novaform memory foam mattress from COSTCO - Any good?

bfootAugust 5, 2005

Anyone have the memory foam mattress that can be found at COSTCO? It is a Novaform Brand name and looks very similiar to the Tempur-Pedic but about 1/3 of the price. It comes in box and is suppossed to grow to the normal size once it is unleashed.

check out or and check for the manufacturer of the types of foam-I think there are two factories that make the "good" foam. We bought ours from memeoryfoam and love it. I have a client who is looking at the Costco one and I think it is the "good" foam but am not sure. It is a good price. Will Costco let you return it if you are not happy with it? We did send one layer of ours back (cost $54 for the shipping) and memeoryfoam replaced it with a different density. My DH and I just love it. Ours is a King and so came in pieces and layers that are easily assembled and also you do not turn them ever.

Yes! Yes! Yes! This mattress is wonderful. I purchased it about 1 year ago and both my husband and I agree it is the best mattress we have ever had. I have arthritis and used to wake up with all sorts of aches and pains in the morning--not any more! I saw the same Novafoam queen mattress at Linens and Things for over $1000! And you have the great Costco guarantee--they will take anything back if you are not satisfied--but you will be. I love my mattress!

When you take it home, you will need to let it grow. The mattress is vacuum sealed in the box and when you open it up, it will start to get bigger before your eyes. I would recommend that you place it on your bed early in the day and let it decompress. The directions tell you that you can put it on the floor, on your present box spring, or on a platform bed. We just used our old box spring and it feels wonderful! The only drawback is that when we travel, I can't wait to come back to my own bed!

I've been looking at the Tempur-Pedic for about three years now. I've just been waiting to get moved and settled into a new home we are building. Thanks for the Novafoam suggestion. I had first read never to buy the "knockoffs" but I think things may have come a long way in three years. I'm going to check out our COSTCO! And the memory pages. THanks again.

rmcphee123: Is this mattress hot or does it breath? I've heard a number of foam mattresses retain your body heat which makes it uncomfortable. I'm not sure of the type of foams that have this property.

Just a quick comment about Novafoam toppers. We have a relatively new Sealy Posturepedic mattress and were experiencing a few aches and pains in the morning so I got one of the Novafoam Memory Foam Toppers (about 1 1/2") and it has made a huge difference in the comfort, for about $80 to $100 depending on the size. In case you have a good mattress, might be an idea to try this first. It does not feel any hotter than normal as long as you put it under your mattress pad.

I do think that the bed retains heat--a plus in the winter, but at the same time I wouldn't say it was uncomfortably warm in the summer, either. I just know that I have slept so much better in the past year that I have had this mattress.

For reasons I cannot fathom I was spooked about buying Tempurpedic and went with latex instead. The latex I got was so firm that I had to get a soft latex topper from foamsweetfoam and it is really very comfortable now. While on vacation I slept on a Tempurpedic mattress and I thought it was just wonderful. I was in an area though of hot days and cold nights so I don't know about the heat factor. I thought it might not be comfortable for reading, but it was. I also bought a memory foam mattress topper from a pop-up ad on the internet (a little cheaper than Costco) and that has made my son's old bed really nice.

I have had a topper from Costco for several years and loved it. I just ordered the king mattress from them and it is due to be shipped this week. Question though...I was told not to put it on a regular box spring. I need to buy a box spring (two for king)and was wondering what everyone else has.

I think I answered this same question on a different thread. You can definitely use a box spring. The manufacturer says it can be used on a regular box spring, on a platform bed, or even on the floor. I have had mine on my old box spring for over a year and have been very happy with it.

I purchased this mattress - and I recommend it to anyone. It does not retain heat at all. It is extremely comfortable and I truly find it better than a conventional mattress. My wife is in agreemment also. Don't hesitate to buy this son of a gun - you won't regret it.

I also took the plunge and ordered this mattress in a queen size. I found out that it is manufactured by a company called Sleep Innovations. I also found the following companies which make comparable beds but at slightly higher prices than the Costco price.

I have the queen Novaform memory foam mattress from Costco. At $499 it was the best price for a 12" thick memory foam mattress. It is very comfortable. Any way you lay on it feels comfortable. It has 3" of memory foam which is the most you'll find in a mattress. Despite that much memory foam it still feels like it has excellent firmness. Yes, it does sleep a little warmer then a regular firm innerspring mattress but if you use a thick cotton mattress pad it will sleep cooler. Overall this is a great memory foam mattress at an unbeatable price!

I've had my queen Elite Novaform mattress from Costco now for a month and must say that I love it. It's much more comfortable than my last spring mattress which was starting to form body depressions on the pillow top. I installed it over a 3/4" particle board base and cannot find any faults with it. It's a bargain at $600 considering the Tempur-pedic mattresses run around $1,500.

I bought the king from I let it decompress. I found four holes (small but there) on the top. They look like manufacturing defects. The memory foam top is not perfectly flat either. I am a little disappointed. I have not slept on it yet since I wanted to air it out. It has been 4 days. It still smells a little. I removed the covers it came with as soon as I opened it so that it can air out better. That is how I found the imperfections in the foam as well as the edges. The glue between the two layers is coming off too.

I bought a Queen from Costco yesterday. I am very disappointed. The top layer is not flat even after overnight decompression (the middle part is much taller than the side). The quality is getting worse or just this one? I am considering either trade or just return it.

I am writing not because I bought the same mattress, but another similar one at Costco, and it was terrible! It was so droopy, I just tossed and turned all night - waking up my husband in the process.
At first we thought we just couldn't have anything like a Tempur-pedic, but we ended up calling 1-800-Mattress. They talked to us and we now have the most brilliant mattress we have ever had. They talked us through the whole process. and we described our horrible otehr mattress, our issues sleeping, and how differently we sleep. There recommendations were wonderful, and so inexpensive.
I haven't been so thrilled with service since I can remember.
Good luck!

Being rather frugal, I simply refused to shell out the big bucks for the Tempurpedic. So, several years ago I bought a Nova mattress topper at Costco. That made such a difference that I bought toppers for every bed in the house as well as one for my elderly and very grouchy father.

When Costco first offered the Nova mattress, I resisted and resisted right up to the point that there was only one left. That is when I gave it. I didn't immediately open the mattress, for I was in the process (am still in the process) of renovating my house. I tucked the mattress in its box in the corner of a closet where it stayed for almost a year.

All of that forms the background for my response to etian. When I finally opened the mattress to allow it to expand, the mattress was bent, so to speak, in the middle along what was the main crease. Despite the mid-mattress hump, the mattress is incredibly comfortable, more firm that the tempupedics but not hot as the tempurpedics can be. My only regret is that I left the mattress in the closet for almost a year.

etian - I forgot to add that the hump eventually disappeared. I did take awhile, though, so be patient. If it is bothersome, simply return the mattress to Costco for a full refund. Just be prepared for regret.

I have had my mattress now for a year. I must say that is is still just as comfortable as the day I got it. The Novaform mattress is really a great bargain. Since I bought mine they have redesigned the mattress by using some different kinds of memory foam. Now there is a total of 4" of memory foam. The top layer is 1.5" of CoolWave memory foam. Then it has 1.5" of 6lb memory foam, then 2" of 5lb memory foam. This looks like the best mattress yet and I would imagine that it even beats the Tempurpedic. They also have another version of the matress called the Comfortluxe that comes with a lush double knitted cover that is supposed to further enhance it. All in all I would say the Novaform mattress is the best memory foam mattress on the market no matter the price. See the cutaway view of the Novaform mattress below:

Has anyone purchased and slept on a novaForm "Comfortluxe" mattress?

I am suffering from numerous injuries from being hit by a car and have a lot of difficulty sleeping because of the pain. I purchased an inexpensive mattress from Spa Sensations which is 5"high density foam with 3" of memory foam on top.

It has really helped with the pain and alignment of my body, however, the heat trapped under my body is unbearable.
I'm going to have to return this mattress.

Costco sells two Novaform full mattresses. The first looks equivalent to what I presently have only a few more inches of high density foam. The Second is the "Comfortluxe" which claims to have multiple layers of varying density foam.

Has anyone tried this? Can anyone help me ? I am convinced now that foam is really medically beneficial but do any of these mattresses (specifically the Comfortuxe from Costco) prevent you from waking up buring up like a baked potato?

Thank you for any comments and suggestions.

Had it for 2 months and still considering sending it back. It's on a platform bed w/ no box spring.

Problems: way hot. Even in winter, you'll kick off your comforter about 4 am. The memory foam side of you is very warm, and the other bits then get cold. *Sigh*

Can't sit up in bed and read or watch TV. Your butt goes into the memory foam trough, and you constantly fight to keep in a straight position.

Hard to move once your're in bed, especially if you have movement problems or chronic pain. You won't be in pain while you sleep, but be prepared to use your stomach muscles to get back up out of bed.

May not be the best option for people who weigh over 200 lbs. You sit on the edge of the bed and the memory foam compresses 4-6 inches. From there you hoist yourself over to your position.

Already appears to be developing less-spongy bits in the areas we sleep on, compared to the middle section. The nice zip-off cover is certainly all rumpled and stretched under the places where we sleep, after only 2 months.

The upsides: You can put a wine glass on one end and jump on the other end -- if you like that sort of thing. All your pets can sleep with you untouched in the king size bed because you're stuck in your memory-foam crime scene outline all night, and the pets know you won't roll anywhere near them. Your partner gets up to use the bathroom in the night and you don't hear him/her leaving the bed or returning -- unless he/she trips over her shoes and curses, which is not, of course, the fault of the bed.

I purchased the NovaForm Mattress from Costco a few months ago. I LOVE IT!! I also read on another blog that if you take the mattress covers off (yes, both of them) and put the NovaForm mattress topper on top of the memory foam mattress, then just place your sheet directly on top of the foam, you get a much more comfortable mattress. That's 6' of memory foam. I did this and have to say 'WOW!' do I sleep great at night. It's like floating on a cloud, and it's great support, no sagging at all.

About 10 yrs ago I was in a car accident. I was hit from behind, suffered from whiplash and 3 bulging disks in my neck + now I have arthritis in the neck and spine. I hadn't had a good night's sleep on an innerspring since, so when I needed a new mattress, I found the Novaform at Costco. Terrific price and guarantee. It did take about 3 weeks for the thing to completly flatten out but flatten out it did.

I also purchased a 'perfect pillow' made of memorey foam from the JCPenney catalog and it is the perfect pillow to go with the mattress. Its in the clearance section of the white sale catalog. They have a few different kinds so be warned that they are not all the same. Email me if you need the catalog number.

Well to sum everything up. I have been sleeping like a baby, no headaches, no neck pain and I feel great when I wake up.

I got a TOPPER from costco, and it never fully opened. When I told a friend about it, he said he got a MATTRESS from costco that never fully opened(they come all shrink wrapped) Costco did take it back, but I ended up ordering a 12" bed from WOW! Rest On Clouds feels just like the TempurPedic I tried in the store. I've never slept this well.

Joan et al,

i just ordered the Comfortluxe queen size from good ol' Costco. while researching, I found this site (mentioned at whatsthebestmattress). I found it very helpful. IT has over 200 posts from people who've bought the Novaform mattress. The early posts are from '05, and the mattress has changed a bit since then. The latter posts migh be more helpful. Some make comparisons between the Elite and the Comfortluxe. It also talks about some of the issues people have had with the mattress and how excellent Costco has been at resolving them. It finally tipped me in favor of givin it a whirl.

Good luck with your search!

I don't mean to be rude cloudy7, buy your post sounds a bit spammy to me. We all know what memory foam is. The site you link not helpful and is mislabled, being about pillows, not mattresses. Appologies if your writing style is naturally spamish in tone!

I would love to know if anyone had it and returned it due to chemical sensitivities to the outgassing? I am very allergic to particle board which is made with glues that have formaldehyde in it. I tried out a memory foam pillow in a store and loved the feel of it but hated the smell so bought a natural latex pillow instead that I love. I loved how the Temperapedic bed felt in the store also but feared having problems with my allergies.

It is wonderful that the price is so much less than the other brand and that Costco will take it back. What a great store.

About a year ago my wife found this forum and after reading the posts we decided to try the Costco memory foam mattress. That was the best decision we made lately. I love it and find it much more comfortable than any other mattress I have slept.

I might add that I am 6foot 4inches and weigh 280 pounds. I am really surprised how it supports my weight so well.

I was considering the Costco Nova Foam mattress and pad. Upon reading the posts, I went to JC Penny web site and found some interesting toppers. Is it true you cannot sit up and watch TV with mattress and it is hard to get out of? This is very important to me as I have a bad back, knee replacement and getting ready for shoulder surgery.

I ordered the Costco Novaform Comfortluxe in King when it was on sale. We didn't get our king bed for 2 months, and opened the box at that point. The mattress was turned up, sort of scrunched up in 2 corners, there was a large ridge in the middle where it was folded, and depressions elsewhere. The outgassing was noticeable, sort of like the smell of a freshly painted room, but did not bother me. Then again, I like the smell of gasoline. The smell just about went away after a week, most of it was gone after 3 days. But the mattress is way too soft for my liking, you sink into a mold of your body. It takes significant effort to move. It reminds me of the feeling you have when you try to run in a dream. Or maybe what quicksand feels like. I was really disappointed, and the mattress never squared up due to the deformed corners, and the ridge is still in the middle. I called Costco and they were very helpful in that they are willing to take it back for a full refund, they would even send someone to pick it up (we'll see). I was concerned that since I let it sit in the box for a couple of months I'd have trouble returning it, but the rep said I could return it at any time if I'm dissatisfied, no worries there. The manufacturer also responded to an email telling me to take it back to Costco, or that they would arrange a replacement themselves. So at least there is good support on both ends, manufacturer and e-tailer. I'm surprised I was as disappointed as I was, since my memory foam quest began after spending a few nights in a hotel with a TempurPedic bed. The bed was so unusually comfortable I removed the bedding to see who made the mattress. That bed was plenty firm for me, but the Novaform is way too squishy, though other reviewers have claimed the Novaform to be firmer. Anyway, looks like I'm going back to an innerspring, probably from Costco thanks to their generous return policy.

The costco topper does wonders for any mattress, but I don't think would buy the mattress. Personally, I don't like the feeling of temur-pedics or any of the knock off brands, its too much like a 1970's water bed for my liking.

Thank you all so much for taking the time to post. I am coonsidering this since I received a coupon from Costco this morning re: the Comfortluxe. Sale/coupon valid Oct. 1-28th, 2007. I'll let you know after purchase. Can't beat the return policy, though. I presently sleep on a 17-year old waterbed and have a husband who dances in his sleep. This sounds right up my alley. Cheers!

Help! We bought the novaform from Costco yesterday and it has only expanded to approximately 9 inches instead of 12 like it is supposed to be. It is also uneven! There is a bigger line (10inches) from head to toe down the center and the edges are all lower than the middle. Has anyone else had this problem?? I love the feel of the mattress and returning it now that it is expanded will mean borrowing/renting a truck! Help! Meghanekb

I was looking at the novaform when it was on sale a few months ago. I ended up getting mattress from I was a bit nervous about ordering from them...they don't have a phone number listed on their site, but I did it anyway. The mattress is great, and the one time I did need to contact them , I sent them an e-mail and a person from there called me 20 minutes later. It was cheap, fast, and great. I didn't know I could sleep this well. (yeah, and my wife loves it too-keeping her happy is more important than me being happy)

We recently purchased the Queen Size Coolwave Novaform foam mattress from Costco, following all manufacturer's instructions, let the bed air out/flatten out for a week before using it. Right from the beginning, one side was noticeably higher than the other side and there is still, 2 weeks later, a definite hump down the center and one side remains higher than the other. I see some posts above say this can take a minimum of 3 weeks to flatten the mattress out, so I really hope that happens.

That said, the mattress is indeed comfortable. I have had 2 car accidents and various back issues, and have a good night's sleep on this mattress. We are looking for a platform bed to go with it, but currently it is on the floor. Due to the softness, it does make it difficult to get out of the bed from the floor level.

Costco does have an amazing return policy. I took back the Sealy Posturepedic I had purchased 2.5 years ago from them, without any hassle, as I woke up with a sore back/neck every morning from it.

Any other suggestions on flattening/evening this bed out?

We have been sleeping on the Costco Novaform mattress for over a year and it has been great. We also put the 2" Novaform matress topper from Costco on top of the mattress (my husband said he did not want the mattress itself to breakdown) I have had no complaints.

My wife and I bought the NovaForm Queen Comfortluxe Memory Foam Mattress Item# 136228 from Costco 3 months ago. It was great for the first month and a half but has begun to sag in the middle and is now like sleeping in a shallow bowl. We thought it would be firm and last a long time but alas it's already wearing out. I weigh 145lbs and my wife 135lbs. We are returning it but they want us to put it back in the original box... we'll see if it fits.

We purchased the Choices Mattress Topper (by NovaFoam) from COSTCO the other day. 99% of it has risen, but about 1-2 inches alont the bottom still has yet to rise. I am hoping that it is not a defective one, I really don't want to haul to back to COSTCO! We have not slept on it yet, but it feels like heaven!!

We bought the Comfortluxe King size mattress by Novaform. We sink into the mattress and we have a hard time to turn on the size (as we sink into the mold of the body). We both have back pain when we get up in the morning.

We want to return it to Costco but I was told by Costco to put the mattress in a box. I am not sure how a King size mattress would fit into a box (or any box). Where can I possibly find a box big enough??? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated...

Costco has a special right now on the Novaform mattress, from Feb 18th to March 9th. Anybody know what the difference between the Comfort Royale Memory Foam and the "Grande Elegance", like the last post, I am not sure if Comfort Royale is the same thing as Comfortlux? We are moving into a new house and got rid of our old queen bed of 11 years, and ready to try something new. The memory foam looked neat! We went to Brookstone one day and they had some kind of foam bed so we got to lie down on it, wanted to get a feel for it. It was very nice! Any suggestions where we can go to "try" out the bed before buying it?

Not even a choice. No wannabees here. Tempur-Pedic all the way.
Any sales rep or website that tells you that any mattress is the same as Tempur-Pedic is out right lying to you.
Why is this a fact you ask? Because it is a fact that Tempur-Pedic holds US and Foreign patents on the Visco elastic material. It is a proprietary material that is only found in products bearing the Tempur-Pedic name. Tempur-Pedic controls every single aspect of the manufacturing of it's products and it is recognized by Hospitals and four star luxury Hotels around the US, not to mention NASA where it was first developed.
There may be other mattresses that may seem "like" or "close" to the Tempur-Pedic but close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades! You go cheaper and you will get cheaper quality. That has never failed to stand true for me, especially when you are buying something that you will spend nearly a third of your life using. You don't go for cheaper when buying your car so why go cheap on something that is even more important to your health and well being. You just try a Tempur-Pedic and you will see there simply is no comparison. Nope, not even a chance here. If you shop around you can find no interest financing to get nice and low monthly payments that doesn't even require a credit check. There are places out there, you just have to break out your local phone book or look online and place some calls. I can promise that you will be very glad you went for the best.

Tempur-Pedic does NOT hold the patent on Visco foam. Visco foam is NOT a proprietary material and many manufactures produce it.
This foam was originally developed in the early 1970's at NASA's Ames Research Center (not Tempur-Pedic)in an effort to relieve astronauts as means to absorb the incredible G-force during take off and reentry.

As to the "NASA" claim, it's no more than a silly market below...

"The original NASA foam was never suitable for sleeping because it broke down in time and lacked the comfort needed to make a good mattress. But the Program never intended to use space foam for bedding. Remember, it was developed for astronauts' seats, not for sleeping.

Once released to the industrial world, progress was imminent. Years of research and development by the Swedish company Tempurpedic did turn this early recipe into an unique material now commonly known as memory foam. Some people still like to call it NASA foam.

This earned them the Certified Space Technology status usually given to a "product that is the direct result of technology developed for space programs, or advances and improvements in such technology".

Progress continues as other companies work to improve the Tempur-Pedic mattress recipe."

Rather than believe me or the person making the silly claims about Tempur Pedic, read from the link I provided for yourself. I'm not sure where he was told these claims but anyone can easily find they are not true.

No you are being misled by false information and are sadly mistaken. You can call Tempur-Pedic and they will e-mail or fax you the numerous patent numbers that they hold and you can contact the patent office yourself (or go to their website) to get the detailed information.
Do your research before you try to put down a post.
True visco elastic foam is proprietary and Tempur-Pedic holds patents for the US and other foreign countries.
It is an absolute fact that NASA did develop the first Visco elastic cusions and Tempur-Pedic (yes the very same company) purchased the technology and developed it into the current mattress that is sold today. They have been in the business since 1983 longer than any other foam mattress manufacturer. Foam mattresses by any other name than Tempur-Pedic are copy cats that are trying their best to put out a similar product and none of them use the same material or manufacturing. It's patented and that is an absolute fact. Any one can post false info on a website now days but the truth is in the numbers. Anyone thinking that a cheap Novaform copy cat wannabee from a Costco is the same as a Tempur-Pedic is seriously kidding themselves and needs to wake up because they must already be dreaming.

Thanks for adding support to my post BTW. Yes it is also an absolute fact that in 1998 Tempur-Pedic was awarded the "Certified Technology Seal" from NASA. This seal verifies that the underlying product technology was derived from the United States' efforts and experiments in space. Tempur-Pedic was the one and only mattress company to get this recognition. So I guess that settles the problem about which one is the real deal and which ones are generic wannabes. The Tempur-Pedic being the only company to hold the Certified NASA Technology Seal is a fact I forgot to mention. Thanks for the reminder.

Hi Guys
I am not arguing for or against Tempurpedic vs novaform etc, but regarding patents, they usually only have a 15 year life, after which anyone is allowed to use them. Companies typically keep adjusting products to allow them to keep updated patents, however the old patents are still available to other manufacturers. Hence it is possible ( I have not done in depth research) that Tempurpedic are the only company to have received the Certified NASA technology seal because they are the original company that did transfer the NASA technology to commercial applications. However, even though they received the seal in 1998, that does not mean they did not get there original patents way before that, and hence other companies may now have access to the original information. Alternatively the information that Tempurpedic used (whether they were the original company doing the work for NASA or not) is available to anyone, even you or me, to develop into commercial applications (aquaspace water filters are another example). If Tempurpedic were the original developers for NASA then admittedly they would have a significant advantage, since most smart companies only include enough information to obtain patents, but keep the real secrets proprietary (eg Coca Cola)

Thanks for the info on this forum, I am one of the many trying to sort out the truth from the myth.

Nobody said the Novaform was exactly the same as Tempurpedic. Some may not want to shell out thousands of dollars for the tempurpedic. The title for the post is NOVAFORM MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS FROM COSTCO...ANY GOOD? So, then the next question is Have you tried the Novaform?

Regarding one of your earlier posts, look at the link below and scroll to the last few comments to see the differences between the GE and Comfortluxe. I do not know if Comfortluxe is the same as the Comfort Royale( which you can get for $700 instead of $1000) you can pick up at the costco store.

Sorry, but Viscoelastic is not a Tempurpedic proprietary product.
Tempurpedic holds patents ONLY on their version of visco foam.

The original developer of the product has sold manufacturing rights to several companies other than Tempurpedic.

"Visco-elastic foam originally was developed in the early 1970s by a company called Dynamic Systems, which was working in association with NASA's Ames Research Center. Scientists
were engaged on a project to improve crash protection for airline passengers.

"The chemistry (for visco-elastic foam) was bouncing around in the labs but it never got developed," recalled Charles Yost, the aeronautical engineer who headed North Carolina-based Dynamic Systems in those days. He and the other scientists working on the NASA project changed that, introducing visco-elastic foam.

NASA was impressed. The new kind of foam "absorbed energy," Yost said. "That's what NASA liked about it."

Dynamic Systems sold the original manufacturing rights for the new visco material, but later went on to develop what it says are improved visco materials. Those materials are sold to companies in a variety of industries, including the bedding industry.

Yost, 71, remains a director of the company, whose visco product lines today include the SunMate and Pudgee brands. NASA has honored the company for its work in the space program."

As for the "certification" it has nothing to do with TP being the only company to make visco foam beds or the quality of the TP bed, read...

"The product's space-age roots have been officially recognized by NASA, which saluted Tempur-Pedic in 1998 for "significant contributions to transferring aeronautical and space research technology into the private sector to save lives, promote economic opportunity and help improve the quality of life for humankind."

Now, since the Dynamic Systems has also developed visco products it sells manufacturing rights to, it shows that Tempurpedic does not own viscoelastic foam and it is not a proprietary material.

Visco foams are rated for quality by density and Tempurpedic does use the best high desity foam. However, just compare the density (in lbs ) of TP to the NovaFoam and go from there.

Costco has a better return policy than TP as well.

Bottom line is the Novaform is a good mattress. May not be as good as TP top of the line $6k+ mattress, but still better than or as good as TP middle of the road product at a fraction of the cost.
Novaform uses good high density viscoelastic foams.

The "in store" mattress at costco is not the same as the online mattress. The online one is of a better/denser visco foam.(in the top layers)
Even though, all viscoelastic mattresses comfort, including TP, is a matter of personal preference. Doesn't matter if a mattress is $1000.00 or $6000.00 if you like the feel and quality of sleep you get from it.

The one in the Costco store (Royale) is the same as the website one that's called "Fresh Dreams." The Comfortluxe is not the same as the one on the store. We are trying to decide between the one in the store and the Comfortluxe and Grand Elegance on the website. I've read conflicting reviews about which one is better for a big man.

No way am I falling for that Temper Pedic hard-sell about "the proprietary temper material" being God's Gift to Foam. Even very small children have learned that advertisers always lie, and we can all spot floggers doing drive-by postings.

We are considering the "Fresh Dreams" mattress from the website. What is the difference between this and the others? Also, where do you get a box spring by itself for a Cal King? Our bed will require that and the only ones i see are really expensive. Thanks!

The Costco website explains the differences between the mattresses they sell by showing the different types of foam used in them. They all have different layers.

We went with the Royale. It fully expanded within just a few hours. I'd say the Royale (called Fresh Dreams on the website) is pretty firm for me. It was perfect - UNTIL we put a mattress pad on top of it. I guess the mattress pad interferes with our body heat softening the mattress. I have the old style of Costco foam topper on it, with a mattress pad on top of that, and it's perfect that way.

The Royale is similar to the firmest Tempurpedics that we tried. I was worried that it would be too soft, but it wasn't.

You can get a Cal King box spring at any mattress store. Or, you can get some plywood cut to the right size at Home Depot or Lowes and make a platform that way.

And, for anyone wondering, the Royale has not interfered with other bed-related activities besides sleeping....................................................................I can still read in bed just fine. What else were you thinking? ;)

I'm also contemplating buying the Novaform Fresh Dreams mattress from Costco. I've read all the posts here and on other places. I understand that the mattress comes vacuum sealed and then once you open it it's supposed to expand etc. So does it get really heavy after it is fully expanded? The reason I'm asking is that I'm most likely moving in a few months so I would have to move it. It's on sale now so I want to buy it now obviously. I'm worried if I don't open it right away then it might have problems with expanding later as some people had experienced. And I also want to try it out asap. Is it much heavier than a regular mattress? I mean I have a regular one now so I would have to lift it to move anyway so just wondering how inconvienient would it be to move the Novaform one when I have to move out. And realistically how bad is the smell once you open it 'cause once I open it I have no room for two mattresses in my place now so I would have to sleep on it in a pretty short amount of time (a few hours) so would the smell be too strong? If I get it delivered in the morning and let it air out all day would that be sufficient to sleep on it that nite? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

My neighbor bought one and after 2 weeks says his house still reeks of a chemical odor, he is also sweating at night. My wife is extremely sensitive to odors, so my friend
recommended It it suppose to be 80% more breathable than any memory foam mattress and odorless.But they are priced about the same as Temurpedic .So I guess you get what you pay for.

Hi all--

Well it has been a year and the Costco memory foam question is still around. Here is my update.

Last Feb. we ordered the Comfortluxe from Costco. It came promptly and was heavy as all get out. It came vaccuum packed and it inflated to full size within two hours, without corners sticking and without any odor to speak of. I am very sensitive to odors so this was an issue for me. I had no problems. The mattress turned out to be way to soft for us. I was nervous about returning it. I shouldn't have been. I'd ordered online, so I called the returns number. They told me I'd have to wait two weeks. Four days later, I got a call from not one, but two different companies to set up a return time. The company came on time and the fellow cheerfully put it in his truck and drove it away. My card was credited for the proper amount. Everything should be that easy.

We took photos of inflating the mattress if anyone would like me to post them.

We ended up ordering our "cheaperpedic" mattress online from The company name came up in every online mattress discussion and no one had a horror story. I called the company and talked to an operator who was very helpful. His name was Kevin Kelly I think. We had them build a mattress just for us. What is good about restonclouds is that they directly compare their knockoffs to TP models. If you know you like the TP Deluxe, they have a model that is similar and they clearly tell you which one it is. Our mattress came quickly and we've been loving it every since. We still say, "I love this mattress!" Now I think they call it the Thermoplush Select 9".

I was more nervous to do a large purchase from Rest On Clouds because of the unknown factor. But they were excellent and so is their product. We saved almost two thousand dollars off the TP price.

I hope this helps!

We bought a novaform mattress from costco and the edges stayed compressed we waited about a month and finally took it back.The next one expanded as soon as we took it out and was much easier to open. So don't wait if does not expand it won't get a new on they said about 1 in 15 don't properly expand.

Don't buy it. After a year and a half ours has low areas where my wife and I sleep. These low areas will not go away. I now wake up with back aches each morning. Good luck to me in trying to return this to Costco after a year and a half. Absolute waste of money.

I cannot believe that there is so much hand-wringing over mattresses. Sure it was expensive, but you spend 1/3 of your life in bed. Make every night the best night's sleep. Hub, who has arthritis, and I bought a TempurPedic one year ago and it still looks and feels like the day it was delivered. No dips, curls, creases. Not hot. Easy to sit up and read in bed.

I have the

Queen Mattress
Item # 345474

From Costco

And even though it's weird to SINK into a bed

I have Degenerative Disk Disease in my L5
The Great thing about this matress is you have ZERO Pressure Points. With a Regular Matress I HURT when I was laying on my bed because of Pressure Points.
With this one. it's like you are on a bed of Clouds.
(Yes it's different to get used to)

But Because of this bed (I've had it 9 months now)
I have now felt good enough to Excersize and lose weight.

I Recommend this bed for ANYONE with back problems and their bed has pressure points. (That hurt)
if you don't like the Sinking Feeling, NovaForm has one that they sometimes Sell at Costco Also, (Similar to Sleep Number but MUCH Cheaper)

I'm glad I bought it and I wish I would have got it 10 years ago......

I've had my Costco Novaform mattress for 3 years now. I can say that I still love this mattress. It cradles me like I am laying on a cloud. I sleep on my side a lot and I can tell you that there is no other kind of mattress that is as comfortable for this type of sleeping. Absolutely no pressure points. You generally fall asleep almost as soon as you hit the bed. I don't think I will use any other type of mattress ever again. Novaform now has their Comfort Deluxe model. I can only guess that they are improving the mattress with each new version. Probably tweaking the foam makeup based on customer feedback. From what I've read the Novaform easily competes with Tempurpedic at 1/3 the price. I can't say definitively since I've never slept on a Tempurpedic. The Novaform will enable you to get some serious sleep! I use a platform bed with no box spring. The mattress sits on a 1/4" piece of plywood that is on top of the bed's wooden slats.

Novaform Comfort Deluxe Cutaway

* Top layer of Memory Foam: 3" of Nutra Temp® temperature-neutral, premium-quality memory foam

Anyone have the NovaForm Comfortluxe? Costco sells this one and the Pure Comfort Deluxe. The Comfortluxe is a little more expensive but has a layer of foam that regulates temperature (so it says).. can anyone comment on the differences between these Costco versions and what their personal experience has been? I'm inclined to wait until either one of these goes on sale, but I want to be ready to wait if one is much better than the other. Thanks.

Sadly, I bought a Novafoam about 6 mo's ago( from the store). I have tried to adjust to it. I like a soft sleep, but it is way too soft. I sink down so far that I spend the night in a virtual ditch and have to fight to roll over. It is not a comfortable sleep and I regret having bought it. I can't wait to get rid of it. It does NOT sleep like the more expensive TP product. Has anyone ever gotten a refund for this from Costco?

I am very surprised some of you found the Novaform mattress from Costco too soft. I bought a 12" one a few years ago and it felt like a boulder. There was NO WAY I could endure it. Costco was good about the return; but, it was nightmare getting it back to the store. It opened like a liferaft; so, there was no way to get it back into the original container or anything smaller than the roof of the large SUV I had to borrow. I am using three memory foam products now: (1) RV - Topper that is absolutely wonderful. My most comfortable place to sleep. I need to find the carton and/or literature to try to find another of this brand. (2) Master bedroom - Spa Sensations 8" mattress in my old waterbed frame, bought at Walmart for around $250. This mattress is a major improvement in my life. I used air mattresses in the interim. BTW, when I could no longer find the original brand of chambered air mattress, I used Aerobeds. They never lasted long enough to be worth the trouble of exchanging/returning them. I bought the Novaform when I began waking up with shoulders and hips that ached more than when I went to bed. I think the ground or my empty waterbed frame would have been more comfortable! (3) Dogs - I have two ThermoPedic Temperature Smart Pet Beds made by Pet's Corner. My four Labs and I love them; so, I need more. They're great in or out of crates and easy to move. I'd just rather have them in more places. I bought the last two at the local Walmart about a year ago and can't find more at any store or on-line. Can any of you help steer me toward add'l ones?

Does anyone know anything about health concerns with memory foam mattresses? I am not one to freak out about everything in the world causing cancer. However, I have come across quite a few websites and reviews that talk about the stuff memory foam is made of being a known carcinogen. Of course, most who are concerned are only in favor of buying organic mattresses, but they are SO expensive. I am all confused! Anyone have any thoughts for me? I would totally apprecaite any legit info! Thanks!

Also, for those of you who have the Novafoam memory mattresses, do you have a problem with the sides sagging? My husband and I bought the adjustable air/foam model from Costco and have been sleeping on it for a few weeks now. It is fairly comfortable, but when we get near the edge we feel like we are going to roll right off. We are considering returning it and buying a strictly memory foam model, but would like to know if those have the same problem. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Because there doesn't seem to be much info on these beds out there im going to post up an email from "Sleep Innovations" that I received after asking them a few questions.

Maybe this will help some people choose which bed would be a best for them.

"Below is a break down of our mattresses at from firmest to softest.
-Our Pure Comfort Mattress will be our firmest and most supportive mattress. This 12" mattress consists of: 2.5" of NutraTemp memory foam as the top layer, 9.5" of premium base foam, and a smooth top cover. The Pure Comfort has a 20 year warranty.
-Our Pure Comfort Deluxe mattress also has a 20 year warranty and will be firmer than the Pure Comfort Grand, but less firm than the Pure Comfort Mattress. We use 3" of NutraTemp memory followed by 9" of our conventional base foam. The Pure Comfort Deluxe mattress has a smooth top cover.
-Our Pure Comfort Grand 12" Mattress consists of: 3" of NutraTemp memory foam as the top layer 2" of high resiliency foam for added comfort and support, and 7" of premium base foam. The cover is a Quilted European Box Top Mattress Cover with water and stain resistance. 10 year warranty
-The Comfortluxe comes with a 10 year warranty. It has 1.5" of cool wave memory foam, 1.5" of 6 lbs foam, 2" of a 5 lbs density foam, and 7" of conventional base foam.
-The Novaform Elite is 3" of 4lb. density foam followed by 9" of conventional base foam. It comes with a thin white cover. The Novaform Elite has a 10 year warranty.
-The Fresh Dreams has 1" of cool wave, 4" of 5lbs density foam and 7" of base foam. It is soft. 10 year warranty
-Our Grande Elegance is our top of the line mattress. It comes with a 20 year warranty because the foam is polymer enriched, which is less likely to sag or make impressions. There is 1" of 4lb density Cool wave breathable memory foam, which amounts to less body heat retaining in the foam. Then there are 3" of 5lbs density foam followed by 1" high resiliency foam which makes this mattress so supportive. The Grande Elegance also has a quilted padded cover on top.

The warranty covers normal wear and tear of the mattress. The warranty does not cover comfort preference, any damage done to the bed if it is not properly supported by a center support or bed slats, or any regular warranty issues if the mattress is in unsanitary conditions. Since we do not experience a great deal of problems with our products we do not require you to register for the warranty. Rather per our warranty please hold on to your original sales receipt and proof of purchase from the box. If you were to experience any problems with in the warranty period please contact Sleep Innovations for a replacement".

I slept on the Novaform memory foam mattress, but didn't find it to feel like the Tempurpedics I have laid on in the stores. I did some research and spoke with and expert at who does the mattress reviews. He mentioned that memory foam will feel different when it is not the same density, as well as if the foam fibers were spaced a part further to accomodate more airflow (usually a good thing, but I still found the mattress to be a bit hot). Anyway, I am including their link below, since he was so helpful.

Hi everyone,

I purchased a "full" size gel memory foam mattress at Costco - the Novoform brand.

Before that happen; I purchased a 3" mattress topper which I still have.

The question is should I place the 3" mattress topper on top of my gel memory foam mattress or try to return it to Costco?

What are the benefits of placing it on top? Is it even better or not? Has anyone try it? I thought I read someone here has done it but want to make sure.

As of this posting, Costco has 4 different memory foam mattresses:
1) NovaForm Deluxe Comfort (12")
2) NovaForm Bella Notte (12")
3) NovaForm Gel Memory Foam (12") - least expensive
4) Sleep Science (10")

Anyone know how they compare? Also, how do they compare to the ones available on (Sleep innovations and Lucid). They seem to be much less expensive at

No foam densities are listed for any of the above. But most are some variation of 2.5" memory foam over 2.5" of some other kind of foam over 5 to 7 inches of a base foam.

I bought the Nova Form (deluxe) 3 1/2 years ago. The mattress is awful: it maintains a sag where my husband sleeps; the zipper on the cover broke; and Costco couldn't help me out at all.

Like most memory foam mattresses, it sleeps "hot," and the king size weighs about as much as a VW Beetle. That means that putting on the bottom fitted sheet in a bedframe is quite a struggle. I'm saving up money and will be happy to dump this thing as soon as I can.

Sleep Science advertises a wedge support system to prevent side sag and allow full use of the bed. Is that an important feature for a memory foam mattress or just advertising fluff?

I found that the memory foam mattresses have several things I find uncomfortable about them. For one, when it's cold, the mattress freezes. When its hot, you sink into the mattress. I felt I could not get any type of regular sleep on the mattress. I'd find out for sure if they let you return the bed and don't keep it a day past that date unless you are positive you can deal with a foam mattress of any kind. Personally I would recommend you check out an IntelliBed first. They use gel instead of foam.

Whatever you do, beware of the Gel infused mattresses. They are very sensitive to the colder weather. They turn Rock Solid in the colder months. I wish I had read the reviews first.

Instead of buying the memory foam mattress I bought two of the 2" memory foam toppers from Costco (Nova brand). Works great for my low back misery and bursitis in hips.

I tried a friend's Temper.... mattress and it was too hard for me.

The toppers made the bed very comfortable. I do use a quilted cotton bed pad over the toppers to keep from getting too hot in the summer. My body weight still sinks into the toppers supporting as it should.

The two toppers was less expensive than a mattress. I put the toppers on top of an almost new Beauty Rest regular mattress.

In my opinion Tempurpedic makes the best foam mattress in a variety of firmness ratings. Some with soft tops, others with foam tops. These are a bit more coslty but I think it is worth spending the money on one fo these sets.
