Why Buy From Us?
So what is so special about our mattress? In an attempt to break through all the hype, we tested 6 different memory foam mattresses in a blind test with over 300 people. The results were very clear - this one mattress stood head and shoulders above the rest in all categories: Comfort, support, and pressure-point relief.
And I believe in it so much that
I'm backing it with an unmatched
365-day money-back trial - no strings attached
Hi - My name is David Rosenberg, and I've been sleeping on and selling memory foam for almost 20 years. During this time, I've heard from literally hundreds of customers, how memory foam has helped to dramatically improve their sleep, ease their aches and pains, and wake up refreshed.
Memory foam just has a unique cell structure that allows it to conform to your body's every curve to cradle your body as well as to reduce and relieve pressure points in a way nothing else can.
That is why memory foam beds have the highest overall rating for customer satisfaction (as rated by the site SleepLikeTheDead based on their analysis of tens of thousands of online mattress reviews) -- at an 81% satisfaction rating, compared to 64% satisfaction rating for innerspring mattresses.
Our customer satisfation rating is even higher -- with 96% of our reviewers saying they would recommend our 10" Memory Foam Mattress to a friend, and 95% giving it 4 or 5 star ratings.
How do we achieve such steller customer ratings compared to other memory foam mattresses?
Not All Memory Foams Created Equal
One thing I've learned over the years is that not all memory foams are created equal.
There are so many memory foam bed options that it can be kind of overwhelming (for me too, and I'm in the business).
Are they all really the same?
You might think so if you just tried each out for a few minutes. They all have a soft conforming feel on top due to the memory foam, and a supportive foam base under this to give the mattress support.
But I knew from experience that there is a real difference in the quality and feel of memory foams, and I felt strongly that there really would be a difference in sleep quality in these mattresses over time.
But how to test this, and find the most comfortable memory foam mattress possible?
Then it hit me -- with the new review software that was now available, I could do something never before attempted. I could run an objective trial, testing a bunch of different memory foam mattresses, and use people's ratings and reviews to find the most comfortable mattress based on people's experiences sleeping on the mattress in their actual homes.
Crowdsourcing Our Mattress -- Finding The One That Was Rated Heads And Shoulders Above The Others For Comfort And Satisfaction
So I had this idea, and once it gripped me I couldn't let go.
At the time, I had no idea that this would end up taking up the next 6 months of my life, and since I stopped carrying a mattress during this test, literally cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to run.
Which is why you don't see anyone else using this method to test out a mattress. No one wants to spend this much time and money to source a mattress, but I didn't really think about this at the time.
I just wanted to know -- is there a real difference in the comfort of different memory foam mattresses, and if so, which one is the most comfortable in this sort of real world test.
So here's what I did: I found 6 different memory foam mattresses to test, all meeting certain minimum specs for density of the foams used, thickness of the memory foam and support layers, etc.
Then I offered folks a great deal on our site to get over 300 to participate in the test -- or over 50 folks testing out each mattress.
And in exchange for offering them such a great deal, all they had to do was post a review on their mattress after sleeping on it for a minimum of 3 months.
The whole thing took over 6 months to complete, and when all the reviews and ratings were in, the results were clear.
Many of the beds got rated ok for comfort, but one stood out clearly for comfort and satisfaction ratings.
It was rated over 15% higher for comfort than the lowest rated, had 10% - 20% more 4 and 5 star overall ratings than the others, and in addition had less than 1/2 the returns of other models.
While I had worried the results might be muddy with no clear winner, in reality the results couldn't have been clearer.
One mattress was the winner in every category -- and this is the one I chose that one to be our 10" Memory Foam Mattress. And in exchange for picking this mattress to carry on our site, we were given exclusive rights to this mattress -- so you can't find it anywhere else on the web or in any store. It is only available here, at Healthy Foundations.
And as I've said above the results since then bear out this crowdsourced choice -- with 96% of our 450+ reviewers saying they would recommend our 10" Memory Foam Mattress to a friend, and 95% giving it a 4 or 5 star rating, it exceeds the general ratings of memory foam mattresses by an astounding degree (far exceeding SleepLikeTheDead's overall satisfaction rating for memory foam mattresses of 81% (which, by the way, is the highest rated category of mattresses on SleepLikeTheDead)).
Why Did Our Memory Foam Mattress Rate So Much Higher Than The Others?
When we did this test, we didn't specify the foams used. And most of the manufacturers used standard 4 lb or 5 lb memory foams.
They were using the best selling foams from the basic foam companies, and they all performed ok. About in line with the overall 81% satisfaction rating I mentioned above.
Our Memory Foam Mattress Uses The Latest Generation Memory Foam Made By A Boutique Foam Company Specializing In Memory Foams, And Its Comfort Makes All The Difference
The memory foam mattress that out performed all the others, we found out, instead used a special memory foam.
It is more expensive than standard, run of the mill memory foams. But the boutique foam company that makes it specializes in memory foams, and their ultra specific focus shows in the unequaled comfort and feel of their memory foams.
Unlike the other standard memory foams, this latest generation memory foam has a unique cell structure that people found not only much more comfortable, but the open cell structure also addressed two of the problems often associated with memory foam -- sleeping hot and odor. As you will see below, our customers are clear in our reviews that unlike ordinary memory foam beds, ours don't sleep hot and don't have that horrible initial odor you often find with ordinary memory foams.
And the proof of its comfort is, as they say, in the pudding -- with our 10" Memory Foam Mattress getting the highest ratings in the industry with 96% saying they would recommend it to a friend.
Here's just a couple of the kind of rave reviews we get from customers about our 10" Memory Foam Mattress:
"We are sleeping so much more soundly and as a result we have more energy everyday."

"We will never go back!"

But How Does Our 10" Memory Foam Mattress Compare To The Leading Brand And Other Popular Memory Foam Bed Options?
Our test found us a great mattress. And we've been selling it with great success over the years -- as shown by our kind of amazing 96% recommendation rating.
But we hear from people all the time that all the memory foam bed choices and information is overwhelming, and they are looking for some easy way to compare the most popular memory foam beds apples to apples.
We've spent a lot of time trying to find a way to do this -- not only to help our customers, but also for our own sakes, to let us see how our 10" Memory Foam Mattress objectively compares to our competition.
And after months of analyzing different ways of sorting this out, we finally came up with a way to represent this all in a chart.
It is our Memory Foam Mattress Comparison chart, and you will see it below.
We tried to pick a fair representation of the different memory foam mattresses out there -- the leading brand, the new, hot start-up, the best seller on Amazon, a big advertiser on the web, and our 10" Memory Foam Mattress.
And the comparison categories are those we hear are most important to folks: comfort (as independently rated by the 3rd party site SleepLikeTheDead, which bases its ratings on its analysis of thousands of online reviews), Durability (based on the quality of foam used in the mattress), the money back trial offered, along with various other factors we are often asked about (made in USA, Certipur-US certified, the integrity of the company, etc).
Here is how it all sorted out:
Memory Foam Mattress Comparison Chart
Memory Foam Specialists Since 1998
Bed in a Box
A Top Selling Memory Foam Bed on Amazon
|Customer Satisfaction Rating of 85% or Higher
(as rated by SleepLikeDead, based on their analysis of thousands of reviews)
|Memory Foam Top Layer of

(for 10" profile with 4" of memory foam, or closest equivalent)
|Was $1299, now just $999||$2499||$849||$850||$325.99|
Our big takeaway from this comparison?
There are a broad array of choices for memory foam mattresses, and at a range of price points.
But, as the chart reveals, there is a sweet spot for a memory foam mattress in terms of both performance and price -- and our 10" Memory Foam Mattress was the only one to hit all these comfort and quality standards, and at a price that is about 1/2 that of the leading brand.
The High And Low Options Both Come With Real Downsides
On the low end, you sacrifice a lot in terms of comfort, quality, and the money back return policies.
Yes, you can get a very inexpensive memory foam bed on Amazon. But if you look at the reviews for these inexpensive, Chinese foam made products, they often start to have problems with compression and breaking down within the first year.
On the other end of the spectrum, the leading brand's foam is of high quality, and while they don't offer the extended money back trial option that we do, their customer satisfaction rating is fairly good (81% as rated by SleepLikeTheDead. Which is good -- a lot better than the general innerspring rating of 68%, but not quite the 86% rating our 10" Memory Foam Mattress gets (which is tied for highest overall)).
But you pay a real premium for a brand name -- all that marketing cost and markup does really inflate the price.
There Is A Middle Choice, Though, That Might Be "Just Right"
Which leaves us at the middle ground -- direct to consumer companies like ours, that use great quality materials, but cut out the middleman so they can offer a mattress that rivals the leading brand in every way -- even exceeds it in comfort ratings and other aspects -- but comes in at about half the price.
As you saw from the chart, our 10" Memory Foam Mattress was the only one to hit every mark. And we are proud of that -- this reflects our committment to both quality (in our committment to using only the highest quality materials in our mattressess) and our customers (we are the only one offering a full 365-day money back trial on our mattress)
Getting To Particulars, What Makes This Such A Comfortable Mattress?
We make no compromises in the quality of the foams we use in our memory foam mattress.
And it isn't just our using the more expensive, but ultimately much more comfortable, latest generation memory foams made by the boutique foam company specializing in memory foams.
We also insisted that the final version of our bed use much higher density base foam (the 6" layer of foams under the 4" of memory foam, that provides the support and is key to the mattresses durability and longevity).
While the standard memory foam beds like those others listed in the comparison chart almost all use 1.6 lb or 1.8 lb base foam, our 10" Memory Foam Mattress uses 2.3 lb high resiliency foam -- almost unheard of since it adds a fair amount of cost to the bed.
But our committment is to making our memory foam mattress the most comfortable and durable out there, and to do this we didn't feel comfortable compromising just to get a bit lower priced mattress.
Which brings us to the specs on the mattress.
For those gear heads out there (and I can be one), the mattress is 10" in height made of 4 layers - at the bottom two layers of 3" convoluted 2.3 lb density poly foam (the bottom layer a firmer feel than the 2nd layer), next a 2" layer of 5 lb memory foam on top of this, and a top 2" layer of 4 lb memory foam.
All foams used in our mattress are made in the US and also Certipur-US certified, so you can rest easy knowing they are:
Again, I hope you will read the reviews at the bottom of this page to get a sense of what people felt about the comfort of the Healthy Foundations 10" Memory Foam Mattress. But, just to give you a notion of what we heard, here is a sample from one of the comments:
"I've been sleeping on my Healthy Foundation since 4/11/2011. I knew I was sleeping better,not waking up frequently during night with hip pain, waking refreshed and feeling less back/hip pain during the day. However, it was not until I went away recently for two nights that I realized how incredible my Healthy Foundation really is. While away, I woke up at least 4 times during the night with hip pain and awoke in the morning feeling so tired and stiff. I truly felt awful. When I came home,back on my Healthy Foundation, I slept like a baby and felt wonderful the next morning. The difference is nothing short of amazing. I am in love!!!! Don't wait----do it"--Review by Betsy, Morristown, NJ

Not Only Comfortable, But Durable As Well -
Our Mattress Easily Performed In The
Top 10% Of All Mattresses When It Was
Put Through Intensive Mattress
From our tester's response it was clear that this mattress was head and shoulders above any of the others we tested for comfort and support. After I looked at the data, and saw how our reviewers rated this mattress as highly as the Tempur-Pedic ® -- which, considering our group had never seen or felt this mattress till it arrived, I thought was amazing -- I was really excited about the idea of carrying the mattress on our site.
But before getting all carried away, I talked with the manufacturer and told them there was one other issue that I knew we had to absolutely address. No matter how comfortable the mattress was, it wasn't worth much unless it was durable and would last. And I knew this was a real concern of our customers because I heard this question every day -- will a memory foam bed really last more than a few years?
So I asked the manufacturer to do the most demanding stress tests on this mattress possible. And while even those few mattresses that are stress tested usually only undergo a single roller stress test, we ended up putting this mattress through 2 different, very demanding stress tests.
The first test was the traditional roller test, where they take a 240 lb, six sided roller (approximately 3 feet long) and roll it 100,000 times over the mattress (this takes five days to complete!). This test is used to determine whether the mattress incurs any firmness loss or thickness loss over years of simulated use. They test for both changes in firmness and height loss.
In addition, the testing center also put the mattress through a relatively new test, which is called the Cornell Fatigue Test. In this test, they basically take half of a bowling ball that is mounted on a piston, and then ram it into the foam 100,000 times (in the same spot) and measure any resulting impression.
So how did our mattress do? While the technical data is a bit hard to plow through, the bottom line is that the mattress performed exceptionally well in both tests.
In the roller test, the testing center indicated to us that the mattress performed in the top 10% of all mattresses they had reviewed. So this mattress should not have much of an issue of losing support over its expected lifetime.
As for the Cornell Fatigue Test, since it is a newer test, they couldn't give us a sense of how it performed compared to other mattresses, as they did in the roller test. But, they said that the test results were quite good -- the amount of the indentation was 44% less than which is acceptable for a foam mattress under their performance criteria. What does this mean? I'm hopeful it means that this particular mattress just won't have an issue with forming a body impression over time given it did so well on this "Ram" test.
All The Comfort, But At About 1/2 The Price* of The "Leading Brand"
This is what we heard from our testers about the Healthy Foundations 10" Memory Foam Mattress - Really comfortable, reduces aches and pains, less tossing and turning, helps people to sleep better and wake refreshed -- but what's the price?
That was the best part - while our testers gave our 10" Memory Foam Mattress an overall comfort rating comparable to that claimed by Tempur-Pedic ®, 10" Memory Foam Mattress is about 1/2 the price*.
Our customer comments were even more specific about how they found our memory foam mattress to compare to the Tempur-Pedic ®. While I didn't ask specifically for any feedback on the comparison of our memory foam mattress to Tempur-Pedic ®, 5 testers included their opinions about how our mattress rated vs Tempur-Pedic ® in their reviews, and here is what they said:
"Superior to the Tempurpedic"
--Craig, August 8, 2015
"Great bed for a great price!"
--Dennis, January 21, 2010
"The Healthy Foundations mattress to be equal in comfort (to our Tempur-Pedic) with less odor and much less heat."
My husband is twice my weight and a memory foam mattress is wonderful in that there is no movement or disturbance when one of us tosses and turns. No movement, no sound, and excellent comfort for two very different-sized humans.
There was very little odor when we opened the mattress but I let it air out for about 8 hours anyway. There was no noticeable odor on the first sleep and I have an excellent sense of smell.
After 6 months, I still say this is a great value for a great product. I found nothing else to compare at this price point. I would recommend Healthy Foundations to anyone wanting a memory foam mattress. I took a chance on this sight-unseen product and am glad I did."
--LH, July 9, 2014
How are we able to offer a mattress that gets this sort of overwhelmingly positive response -- where 96% of our 450+ reviewers say they would recommend it to a friend -- at about 1/2 the price of a comparable Tempur-Pedic ®?*
Bottom line, with the "leading brand" you are paying a big premium for their huge advertising and branding program. In 2014 alone, for example, Tempur-Pedic ® spent approx. $200 million in selling and marketing their brand in North America.
I operate very differently: I buy directly in volume from the manufacturer to get the lowest possible price, and I don't have expensive overhead that jacks up the price since we have a lean online operation. In this way, I can price this mattress -- which offers no compromise in comfort or quality -- at half the price of the "leading brand".
With Its CoolMaxTM Cover And Vacuum Packaging, Our 10" Memory Foam Mattress Doesn't Sleep Hot, And Has Little Or No "New Foam" Odor -
Unlike So Many Other
Memory Foam Mattresses
I get asked about these issues a lot -- whether our 10" Memory Foam Mattress sleeps hot and has a strong odor when new. And I've have come across these issues with memory foams in the past.
So after all the reviews came in and it was easy to see that this mattress was the clear winner, I took some time to look over all the reviews specifically to see what people had to say about the mattress sleeping hot and any comments they had about the mattress' initial odor after unwrapping it.
And what was the feedback on these issues? I'd have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the positive comments by the reviewers about both these issues. The bottom line was that, in general, our reviewers found that the our 10" Memory Foam Mattress doesn't sleep hot for most people and it had almost no initial odor.
Here is what we found: 68 of the 381 total Healthy Foundations 10" Memory Foam Mattress reviews we analyzed did mention a concern of whether it might sleep hot. Of these 68 reviews, 42 said that the Healthy Foundations 10" Memory Foam Mattress did not sleep hot, 13 said it was slightly warm at first, but that they adjusted or the warmth was not an issue, and 4 reviewers solved their own heat issues with a change in mattress covers or blankets.
Some comments were "Neither of us find it to be HOT - just very comfortable", "The weather was still pretty warm when we first got it, but it did not seem to sleep noticeably hot to us. Now, in winter, we use the same blankets as before - no noticeable difference there either", and "I'm always hot but I don't have trouble with this mattress (we use an additional mattress pad which probably helps)".
Only nine reviewers of the 381 total reviews said the mattress was warm or hot, resulting in two returns for this problem.
Bottom line - of 381 reviewers of the Healthy Foundations 10" Memory Foam Mattress we looked at, only 9, or 2.3%, said it slept hot, and only 2 -- or less than 1% -- returned it due to their feeling hot on the mattress.
So while there is a lot of talk out there about memory foam sleeping hot, in our case, based on our customers actual experience on our bed (and all are posting reviews after sleeping on our bed for at least 3 months), in reality the vast majority of reviewers simply didn't find that sleeping hot was an issue.
Given how often I get this question, this fear of sleeping hot turned out to be much greater than the reality. Perhaps this is an issue for other memory foam mattress, due to their foams or the covers they use. But for ours, the various design aspects of the mattress -- from the included CoolMaxTM cover, which incorporates the CoolMaxTM fibres to wick away your body's moisture to help you sleep cooler, to the convoluted tops of the base foam layers to allow for better ventilation, and lastly to the memory foam itself which may have better air flow than other memory foams due to its open cell nature -- really seem to keep the vast majority of people at a comfortable temperature when sleeping on our mattress.
And the feedback on the odor issue was even more positive -- in the sense that our reviewers didn't find that there was an odor issue.
Of the 381 reviews we analyzed, 48 reviewers commented about this -- and 47 of these said very positive things about the odor, or lack there of. Most said that they found the "the mattress really did not have much, if any, odor to it". In pure numbers, of these 48 reviews, 26 said there was no odor at all, 9 said the odor dissipated within a few seconds to a few hours, 4 said it dissipated within a few days, and 7 said it dissipated within 1 - 2 weeks.
Typical comments were, as one person noted, "It [the mattress] also had a minimal smell when we first got it, but that has now gone away completely (I have a very sensitive nose)". About the worst comment we got on this was that "At first there was a slight odor, but that went away after about 2 weeks".
I have to admit I was a bit stunned after reading through all the reviews. Despite the general perception people have that a memory foam bed has a strong initial odor -- I get this question a lot -- only 1 person out of 381 found it to be a problem with our 10" Memory Foam Mattress.
Why do we get so few issues with an initial odor where other memory foam mattresses seem to have this issue?
It may be due to the way in which the memory foam we use is manufactured (the catalyst they use in the foaming process doesn't have an odor like some that other manufacturer's use) or perhaps because we vacuum pack the mattresses (which may pump out the odor during this packing process if there is some picked up during the manufacturing process).
Or perhaps it is because all the foams we use in our mattress meet the Certipur-US ® strict standards for low VOC emissions.
Whatever the reason, while odor may be an issue for other memory foam mattresses, it just isn't a problem with our 10" Memory Foam Mattress.
The Mattress Gets Delivered Right To Your Door
By FedEx Ground
I've shipped thousands of mattresses in the mattress business, and shipping them by freight truck can be a nightmare. Mattresses get lost or punctured by fork lifts, and often actual deliveries were very difficult (they would just bring the mattress off the truck and it was up to the customers to get this very large mattress into their house by themselves, etc).
That's why I really loved that this mattress is one of the only mattresses I've seen that comes compressed so it can be shipped by FedEx Ground. That way you can track the progress of the mattress (so you won't be wondering when it will arrive), and, best of all, FedEx Ground will deliver it right to your door.
This is a huge step up from shipping a full size mattress by freight truck, and it is all due to the fact that the manufacturer came up with a way to compress a mattress into a roll and seal it at the plant. And from what we heard from our testers, it seems that these compressed and sealed mattresses arrive with minimal to no "new foam odor" at all - a real pleasant change from the strong "new foam odor" you see in most new memory foam mattresses.
We did wonder whether compressing and packaging the mattress altered its feel or durability. In our testing it didn't, and we literally have had no complaints from our customers about a mattress not recovering fully or having any sort of compression set.
Our Attempt to Make You An Irresistible Offer to
Try This Mattress Out For Yourself
We realize that the ultimate test for our mattress is for you to try it for yourself in your own bedroom. So, to try to make that as easy as possible, we want to offer you an unheard of deal in the mattress industry:
An unmatched 365-day money-back trial. If for any reason you don't just love our memory foam mattress, let us know within 365-days of receiving it and we will refund your money (less a $75 return shipping fee). The only thing we ask is that you give the mattress a try for a few weeks before deciding, since it can take some time for you to adjust to our mattress.
I do get asked a fair amount, though, that while people are really amazed we offer a 365 money-back trial, wouldn't a return of our mattress be a real hassle? They wonder how in the world would they somehow get it folded up again and ship it back to us?
But don't worry, unlike other internet dealers, we don't ask that you find a box and somehow figure out a way to ship it back to us. The return is actually very simple -- we use a pick up service, that operates franchises nationally, that will pick the mattress up right at your door. And the only charge for this return is the $75 return fee -- after any return pickup, we then refund your full purchase price less only the $75 (there is no restocking fee or other add on fees that you often only find out about later -- the $75 fee is it!).
Free Shipping. For all orders within the Continental U.S. (A $150 value)
Fast Shipping. Our 10" Memory Foam Mattress is in stock and generally ships out within 2 - 3 business days. Shipping time to you once it leaves our warehouse varies -- we ship the mattresses from Georgia, so time to the East Coast and Midwest is 2 - 3 shipping days, and out to the West Coast is 4 - 5 shipping days.
No Sales Tax. Except for Colorado orders. On a queen mattress, this can save $140 or more!
A real 10-year non-prorated manufacturer's warranty. What I mean by real warranty is that our 10" Memory Foam Mattress ' warranty, unlike so many other warranties I see out there for memory foam mattresses, does not have an inflated warranty period for sales purposes which, in practice , has all sorts of fine print that would make it nearly impossible to be able to make a warranty claim (sound familiar?).
Our manufacturer instead is really ready to stand by its product for what is really the expected lifetime of the product -- which is pretty rare in the mattress industry. So for 10 years you can rest secure knowing that if a warranty problem arises, it will actually be addressed and you won't be stuck.
Our Mattress is Provided Without a Foundation -
Why, You Ask?
For most people, we've found that you really don't need to buy a new foundation or box spring when you are purchasing a new mattress. I know that this confuses some people - they are used to buying a mattress as a set. But it really isn't necessary to replace the box springs in most cases these days.
That's because most mattresses sold in the last 10 - 15 years aren't sold with a box spring, but instead with what is called a foundation. A foundation is a very different animal than box springs. Foundations are made to be basically rigid. The most basic foundations are just boxes of wood covered in fabric. More expensive foundations do incorporate some metal parts, but, unlike springs, these metal supports have very little flex and give the foundation a very stiff, platform like feel.
One reason for this change from box springs to foundations may have been due to the increasing thickness of the standard mattress. Thicker mattresses incorporate all the comfort features (whereas before the box spring was one of the elements to how firm or soft a mattress would feel). But the net result is that most people have a foundation that works basically like a platform, and as long as it still has a firm, resilient feel you can use it with our mattress.
To be honest, this is an area that I've had some pressure to retail foundations with our mattress. It would be an easy way to make a bit more on each mattress sale. But I'd rather have you save some money and keep your current foundation, as long as it is working fine. There's a green element to this as well - it keeps these big items out of landfills, when they're still working perfectly fine.
So test your foundation - remove the mattress and press it in a few places - and as long as it is firm and has no areas with any sort of dips, or excessive give, it should work with our mattress.
If, though, you don't think your current foundation or box springs won't work with a new mattress because it is just longer firm and supportive, you may need to get a new foundation.
While we are looking into possibly carrying a foundation to help this group of people, as of now my best advice if you need to also get a new foundation would be to check with a local mattress store to see if they have a basic foundation that might work well (that offers firm support). These are often made of wood framing, and work basically like a platform. And for the most part they are fairly inexpensive.
Will Your Mattress Work On An
Adjustable Bed Frame?
Our mattress should work well with any adjustable base. Just make sure you order the correct size mattress for the adjustable base you are putting it on.
Why Buy From Us?
Unlike most retailers selling memory foam mattresses, we specialize strictly in memory foam. This specialization allows us to offer our customers some significant advantages. While below, I cover a few of the important ways in which we differ from the competition, I've also put together a more in-depth answer to the basic question I often get from a customer:
As a specialized business with lower overhead, we strive to offer low pricing on all our products everyday. That is one reason we are able to offer a mattress of this quality at 1/2 the price of the "leading brand".
Our Unmatched 365-day money-back Guarantee
We just don't believe you should bear the financial risk if a mattress doesn't end up working out for you. Unfortunately, most retailers offer a very limited or no money-back trial when you buy a mattress. We think this just isn't right - if you believe in your mattress, it shouldn't be a problem offering a money back guarantee. We feel our mattress is second to none, and to show how much we believe in it we decided to offer an unheard of 1 year money-back guarantee.
So when you buy a mattress from us, you can rest easy knowing that you have a full year to decide if this is the mattress for you. The only charge you will pay on a return is a $75 return fee.
I do get asked a fair amount, though, that while people are really amazed we offer a 365 money-back trial, wouldn't a return of our mattress be a real hassle? They wonder how in the world would they somehow get it folded up again and ship it back to us?
But don't worry, unlike other internet dealers, we don't ask that you find a box and somehow figure out a way to ship it back to us. The return is actually very simple -- we use a pick up national pickup service that will pick the mattress up right at your door. And the only charge for this return is the $75 return fee -- after any return pickup, we then refund your full purchase price less only the $75 (there is no restocking fee or other add on fees that you often only find out about later -- the $75 fee is it!).
"Great Customer Service,
Honest People to do Business with!"
"We are delighted to give Healthy Foundations an excellent review even though we have returned our mattress and received our refund within a week of submitting our request for refund. We had purchased a memory foam mattress for our cottage. I loved it, but my husband didn't really like it from the beginning. So it is ironic that I convinced him to buy a memory foam mattress for our house. Like a good sport he tried it for 7 months and never came to like it better than the cottage mattress. My husband is just not a memory foam fan. Personally, I loved our Healthy Foundation mattress, but wanted us both happy so returned it. I can honestly say that healthy Foundation was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. It is refreshing to find a company with such integrity. If you are a memory foam mattress fan, I would highly recommend doing business with Healthy Foundations."--Jackie & Nik, BBB Online Review

Our Compressed And Sealed Mattress Arrive In Pristine Condition
Unfortunately, I have had customers who had previously purchased memory foam beds from other companies and found that their mattresses arrive with a very noticeable odor and occasionally are dirty from shipping. One of the things we really like about our new memory foam mattress is that at the factory it is compressed and then encased in plastic and sealed - so it arrives in a clean condition and with virtually no new foam odor.
Serious Customer Service.
Because we specialize in memory foam, we offer a number of customer service advantages over other companies that carry a varied product line.
- First, after dealing with these products since 1994, we have an intimate knowledge of how they work and can help to answer your questions on these products.
- Second, we know that you want your memory foam mattress as soon as possible, so we work hard to get your order out in the next 1 - 2 business days after you order.
- Third, unlike a big mail order house, when you order from Healthy Foundations, we take your order, track it, and are accountable for the order every step of the way. So if you have questions about your order, you only have to email us (see our Contact us page for our email address or contact form) and you will have our immediate attention.
- Finally, you can continue to call us toll free at anytime if you have questions about your product or customer service concerns. We will make sure that any questions or concerns you may have will be handled promptly and thoroughly until you are satisfied.
"Best Customer Service Online, Hands Down"
"After shopping around for months, we decided to take a chance with HF based on the reviews and amazing return policy.
My wife loves the mattress and I have three bad discs in my back. The bed lets both of us get a full nights sleep. It's very comfy, not cushy, and doesn't translate movement to the other side of the bed at all.
The most impressive thing about the bed, though, is the owner of the company. Ten months into our new bed, my side developed a lower spot where I sleep. It didn't affect the quality of sleep other than it was a noticeable bit lower than my wifes side...so is my butt!
I emailed David and he got back to me twice in the first day, asking for any documentation I could provide. After taking some pics, he contacted me the very next day simply offering a new bed or a full refund. Being satisfied with the bed, we opted for a new mattress.
Within two days, they came and picked ours up and left us a new mattress.
I can't say enough about a merchant that is immediate with response, stands by his word and follows through with total satisfaction. I am an ex Big box retail general manager and this company is exactly what I strived for every day. Kudos and Good night!"-- review by Mike, Sarasota, FL,

"my husband likes a very firm bed, and I like a soft one. This mattress works for both of us. We looked at foam mattress specifically after doing research on the Internet. It did take a couple of days to get used to. We love it now and our very happy with our decision/purchase."--review by aussieacres, Tracys Landing, MD

"The product was first class,the customer service great and the website a real learning experience."
"David responding very quickly. In the same day that I asked to return the mattress I had a pickup that afternoon. I am sorry that the mattress didn't work out as I have a herniated disk in my lower back. I thought this " type " of mattress would be the answer but it wasn't. I have to compliment you on running an excellent company through a website. The product was first class,the customer service great and the website a real learning experience. I still recommend this company."--George B, BBB Online Review

Reviews Of Our 10" Memory Foam Mattress:
* Price Comparison is of Healthy Foundation 10" Memory Foam Mattress to the Tempur-Cloud® Supreme
This comparison is strictly a value comparison. That is, I looked at the different models in the Tempur-Pedic ® line, and the Tempur-Cloud® Supreme is the one with the specs that are almost identical to our mattress.
They both have similar amounts of "core" foam (6" for our 10" Memory Foam Mattress, 7" for the Tempur-Cloud® Supreme), and then 4" of memory foam on top with similar densities (a 2" layer of 5 lb density memory foam topped with a 2" layer of 4 lb density memory foam).
In terms of overall feel, I have no idea if these two mattresses would offer a similar level of firmness and cushion simply because I've never tested the Tempur-Cloud® Supreme over months of use as I did our 10" Memory Foam Mattress . And I suspect they may well be different in that Tempur-Pedic ® rates the Tempur-Cloud® Supreme as a soft mattress, where as our 10" Memory Foam Mattress gets pretty consistent ratings in our reviews as a firm mattress.
The bottom line is that due to the different feels of the memory foam used in our 10" Memory Foam Mattress and those used by Tempur-Pedic®, I don't believe that any of their line offers a similar feel to our mattress. It is really a matter of apples and oranges, and while both can be good, neither necessarily can be used as a comparison for the other.
What People Are Saying About Our Memory Foam Mattresses And Toppers:
"It's even better than we expected"
"My husband and I are thrilled with our Healthy Foundations mattress. We have had it through the winter and summer and find it perfectly comfortable in both hot and cold weather. We were afraid that the memory foam would be warm in the summer but that hasn't been the case at all. My husband has had severe back problems, to the extent that he was seeing a pain doctor and having back injections. I have suffered with hip pain for almost two years. My husband recently commented that he hasn't had back pain since we got our new mattress. My hip pain has also improved greatly. We are both so happy we found Healthy Foundation because we were not willing to pay the price to get a Tempur-pedic or Sleep Number Bed. We couldn't be happier with our decision."

"Superior To The Tempurpedic"
"We slept on a Tempurpedic mattress for years but were put off by the price it came time to replace it. The Memory Foam web presentation was informative and persuasive, so we switched. We've had the Memory Foam for three or four months, and it is superior to the Tempurpedic."
