Real Sleep Mattress Review

The Real Simple brand, known best for their widely popular magazine (which has millions of readers and covers a wide range of women’s interest subjects such as housekeeping and home care, child care, cooking, baking, and emotional well-being) has recently joined the ever-growing bed-in-a-box industry with their line of Real Sleep mattresses. Available in six different sizes (Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King), this mattress is an all-foam option that is designed to offer both support and comfort.

Today, we will be discussing the Queen Mattress specifically, but you can rest assured that you will get virtually the same Real Sleep mattress experience discussed here even if you select an alternate size, so the information we will share here is still relevant when deciding whether or not this mattress brand is the right choice for you.

Delivery, Unboxing & Set-up

Like many other bed-in-a-box brands, the Real Sleep mattress is compressed and vacuum-sealed for the shipping process. Additionally, Real Sleep mattresses are available for shipping and delivery to anywhere in the entire United States (even non-continental states such as Alaska and Hawaii) as well as Puerto Rico; that being said, shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico does normally involve an additional fee. Also, the Real Sleep mattress is not currently available for purchase internationally.

In any case, regardless of where you live, your Real Simple mattress will be delivered within a week of you placing your online order; it will arrive vacuum-sealed and packed within a cardboard box. Once you receive it, you will need to unpack it from the box and carefully cut open the plastic covering the mattress (take precautions in order to make sure that you do not cut the mattress itself during the unpacking process).

Because the Real Simple mattress is constructed entirely out of various memory foams, it may take it some time to fully expand and regain its proper size and shape. According to various reports, this may take anywhere from just a few hours to up to a full day. If you are seeking this type of mattress, read our review of the top 3 memory foam mattresses.

Additionally, there may also be some slight off-gassing. And while this odor is not harmful to you (and is largely a by-product of the vacuum-sealing more than anything), the smell can still bother some people so it’s advisable to wait for your new mattress to air out before using it.

You like the Real Sleep Mattress if you:

  • Want great temperature regulation. This mattress is specially designed to offer fantastic temperature regulation. Thanks to the open cell design which promotes air flow, heat retention is not a problem with this mattress; instead of being trapped in the foam, heat is instead drawn away from your body to help keep you cool while you rest.
  • Want supreme levels of comfort. Because the top layer of this mattress is made out of body-contouring comfort foam, it can provide tremendous comfort while you rest; it is also quite responsive, and will even adjust if you shift position.
  • Want great support. Thanks to the high density base layer, this mattress has a strong and durable foundation that helps to provide you with excellent support while you rest. It is an especially great choice if you want targeted support for your neck, back, and hips, since it helps to keep these portions of your body in proper alignment while you sleep (regardless of sleeping position).
  • Want a mattress that is good for any sleeping position. If you want a mattress that is good for anyone (whether you sleep on your side, your back, or your stomach) then the Real Sleep mattress is a good choice for you. Because the specially designed foam layers of this mattress offer a powerful combination of both comfort and support, this mattress is great for any sleep position.
  • Want a mattress made out of the best materials. Not only does this mattress have an organic cotton cover, but all the foams used in its construction are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning that there are no harmful chemicals or toxins in the mattress; this makes it safe for both you and the environment.
  • Want a mattress that is good for reducing motion transference. Because this mattress is constructed entirely out of high quality memory foams, it is a great choice for reducing the impact of vibrations (specifically, vibrations caused by movement, such as getting into or out of bed or changing position).
