We went to 2 stores in Manhattan, in an attempt to learn about beds... I researched and researched, and drove myself crazy with all of the different reviews on the internet for so many Companies. I decided to buy a mattress from the same company that I purchased my adjustable bed frame from. Big mistake. It was 6 inches of latex over foam and was on the hard side for 2 side and back sleepers. So back it went and my research started again. Spindle was one of the beds that I originally researched, but its’ price threw me off. How can a full latex bed be over $1,000 cheaper than its’ competitors? After much research I decided to buy a queen size bed from Spindle... My husband was not happy with having to put the bed together ourselves. We both have knee and back issues and he was dreading delivery day. It was not difficult. It took under an hour, and that included a bedbug encasement (we live in NY, need I say more?), a mattress protector and sheets. I am very happy with my new Spindle. My husband is also happy but to him “a mattress is just a mattress”. Men!
Spindle Mattress sells latex mattresses... costing 50% of the similar "brand name" models... Beside being a joy to sleep on, their mattresses are highly adjustable... but if are not quite happy, you can buy a replacement layer of different firmness after sleeping on the mattress for several months at home... the HUGE benefits of buying mattress in layers, is that the mattress is delivered in fairly small boxes... My wife has been dreaming of a king size... but the staircase clearance does not allow anything bigger than the queen size through. With Spindle Mattress, I get to carry several compact boxes upstairs, unroll the layers, stuff them into the mattress cover... The pre-sale service is fantastic. There is no pressure whatsoever.. true expert knowledge, that no salesmen in a box store may ever match... explains advantages vs other mattress types and brands. I am an engineer, and he answered my entirely too technical questions with both expertise and patience... if you want best possible, without qualifications, good night sleep (and other on-mattress activities) head to Spindle.
We are so, so pleased with our Spindle mattress!! We did A LOT of research on mattresses and were close to buying a completely different type of mattress when we found Spindle... We have had it about a month now & are SO pleased. I have had a significant reduction in the back and hip pain I feel when I wake up in the morning--some mornings I have no pain, which is remarkable! Furthermore, we love that we can customize our mattresses. We bought 2 twin XL for our king bed. I LOVE being able to move layers around to get the perfect fit for each of us. We are both sleeping SO MUCH better than on the memory foam mattress we replaced. And did I mention the reduction in pain??? So, so grateful to have found Spindle!
We bought a King Size Firm Latex mattress... We tried out air mattresses, innerspring, tempurpedic and latex mattresses... determined to find a more reasonable option. I found the website Mattress underground and learned about Spindle... We visited the Spindle Mattress... It was very low key and low pressure. What is nice about the mattress is that you see exactly what is in the mattress - 3 layers of 3" latex zipped into a mattress cover... You receive the mattress and put it together yourself. It was a 2 person job, but did not take us long. We had been warned that you initially will think the latex doesn't fit in the mattress cover, but it does. Look at the spindle site or on you tube as there are helpful hints on how to adjust the latex so it lines up... We have been very happy and the entire experience was very pleasant. I feel we got a better product for much less. Note: If after buying the mattress you feel the mattress is too hard/soft - Spindle will work with you to change a layer of latex to help you adjust your mattress.
Everybody has their own threshold as to what qualifies as comfortable. Some companies promise "you'll sleep through the night" or "wake up pain free".
We're pretty careful to avoid claims with no baseline, can't be substantiated or are really subjective in nature.
We'd rather provide as much information as we can and let the consumer make up their own mind.
We're not for everyone.
TWO STAR REVIEW
Positives: If you're trying to get a natural bed without any exorbitant price, this is a good choice, in our opinion. Sturdy, so we're sure it'll last quite a long time. Quick shipping (next business day) and quicker delivery than expected (received 3 days after shipping). Not-so-positives: For all the memory-foam mattress lovers out there looking for a natural alternative, although this is probably the best you'll get, do understand this does not feel anything like a memory foam mattress. Comparing latex foam to memory foam is like comparing collard greens to spinach which are both green vegetables but that's it. The latex mattress feels like a firm innerspring mattress. There's no "loving hugs" or cradling. No "ah" when lying down on the mattress after a long day's work. Of course, we've been on a Tempur-Pedic for 13 years, though not unfamiliar with latex mattresses; slept on parents' and grandparents' over the years. That being said, we had to wean ourselves off of the memory foam via an old 1-1/4" memory foam topper we used for guests. Otherwise, we were unable to stand sleeping on the Spindle Mattress. Too firm. After 4 months, we were finally able to remove the topper and sleep on the latex mattress without it. So just be prepared for the transition.
TWO STAR REVIEW
I have had this mattress for nearly two months now, and am still not sleeping well on it. I bought it based on previous experience with a latex mattress topper - my bed has a regular old firm mattress and a 2" medium/firm latest mattress topper. I thought that going all the way - plus the natural cover - would be even better. I used the firmness selection tool on the website to select my firmness, and ended up with Medium. It came very quickly, and with three people it was easier to put together than I thought. However, it is far far stiffer / firmer than expected. I sleep on a mix of my side and stomach and it makes my arms fall asleep sometimes.
THREE STAR REVIEW
Spindle service was great. Quick delivery. The bed took about an hour and a half to assemble, including the platform. The mattress is much heavier than I would have expected. No odor. Great motion control. Harder than I anticipated. I'm disheartened that my husband and I still turn as much as before b/c of pressure spots. I'm thinking about for an adjustment from the medium to the soft comfort level
ONE STAR REVIEW
Medium, too soft and so uncomfortable. It sinks my body, and then the spine does not align properly. Even firm spindle would not work for me since I tried that firmness level too.
