Amazing mattress Verified ReviewerThis review is for the FIRM mattress (not the medium one).
As per the instructions I let it "breathe" for 72 hours before lying on it.
I'm really pleased - the comfort level is excellent, I feel that my spine is fully supported, it's firm but still slightly sinky so I can sleep on my back, side or front comfortably. Compared to my old mattress which had started to cause me pain, this is a great relief. I've also found that I don't notice my partner moving around or getting in / out of bed which I was pleasantly surprised at. I think that this (firm) mattress is actually a bargain and I would thoroughly recommend it.
Ahhhhh, sleep at last!Verified ReviewerBy far the most comfortable mattress I have slept on in years!!!
We went for the standard double, blue (medium/firm), as I like a softer mattress. We tried all sorts of mattresses - the buy-and-return type from TV adds, before we bought this one and everyone was just too hard and cost triple the amount of this mattress! You sleeping ON TOP of them rather than them moulding around you - if you know what I mean...
This mattress is like melting into a warm comfy hug! It fold around you and supports everywhere.
We have had it a month now, and not once have I woken with backache, hip ache, or headache! This truly is a first in years!!!! I slerp right through the night, no waking because my hips are hurting. Its really fab!
I went in store to try it before we bought and the staff were very knowledgeable too.
Had it delivered. Delivery guys were fantastic and delivered to specified room.
Excellent. Would 100% recommend the delivery, the price AND the mattress. Very happy customer here!
Mattress gets worse over a short timeVerified ReviewerI bought this (firm) mattress on the 24th August 2023. It was good at first, however, over the fairly short time I've had it, there is a big circular patch where it feels like it sinks in the middle of the mattress. As such, when you are trying to sleep at a side you feel like you are rolling into the middle of it during your sleep, on both sides.
Some parts of the mattress seem very soft that you can compress it down, and others feel very firm and lumpy, like the springs are jagging into you, which is not ideal at all. Additionally, the edges of the mattress collapse/compress when you sit or push on it. I thought it was supposed to have supportive edges.
The mattress was alright at first, but seems to be getting worse. I'm also over my 3-month period to return it and discarded my receipt a while ago.
Not sure if it's a manufacturing fault or a bad mattress overall. Mattresses I've had from Ikea in the past seem to have been much better quality than the one I received.
Smaller than advertised king sizeVerified ReviewerI chose this because I had an excellent IKEA SULTAN mattress that's now worn out after many years.
Unfortunately the VAGSTRANDA mattress is not a King size (200cm by 150cm), instead it is 198cm by 148.5cm.
IKEA provided a replacement, but the second mattress was also too small. They agreed this was a manufacturing fault.
This is very disappointing because, until now, I've thought IKEA mattresses were good quality and good value.
Poor quality and SaggyVerified ReviewerAfter buying this mattress just over a year ago initially we were delighted with it, now however my sleep quality has decreased significantly and it is due to the mattress. Was told this was the new version of the Hovag mattress which I’ve got on the spare bed. For the money spent this mattress is not worth it
Comfy at first, but usual sinking in over time resulting in sore neck/back.Verified ReviewerWe were very happy with this mattress at first. No instructions at all, but I guessed you're meant to turn it every few weeks, so that is what we did.
Sadly, after less than a year, we are both sleeping in holes made by our bodies while lying on it and regularly get sore necks. In the centre where we're not sleeping is a ridge/bridge! where the original height of the mattress is.
We are not heavy at all (58 & 75kg), so its the usual story with just about all mattresses, except with this one you can only turn it, you can't flip it to use both sides.
I would not recommend this mattress to anyone unless its for a guest room where it doesn't get a lot of use.
Too soft, no sleep.Verified ReviewerInitially we were over the moon with our new bed and mattress. Sadly after a short period I have started to suffer with a painful lower back while sleeping. It seems to be the mattress isn't supportive enough.
Very disappointed and dissatisfied.
Good nightVerified ReviewerUnpacking is fun, wow what a great mattress Super comfy
Very good, could be aVerified ReviewerVery good, could be a bit firmer for my taste.
MattressVerified ReviewerI have these mattresses on all of my beds. Good quality and very comfortable.
Comfortable mattressVerified ReviewerBought this 3 weeks ago as we neded a new firm mattress. After trying all of them in store, we were happy with this one. We bought it, as it comes rolled up we took it home in our car. We had read it is best to unroll it in a spare bed for at least 2 days so that it is ready to sleep on. Ordered a firm one and took a day or 2 to get used to it. It is one of the best we have ever bought. Very comfortable. I am smaller and slimmer than my husband and we both think it is so comfortable. Can recommend this mattress.
Not FirmVerified ReviewerNot firm as expected and written
Good if you are sleeping by yourselfVerified ReviewerI was so excited when I bought this mattress as it’s so comfy when you sleep in it by yourself and I was single at the time. When I got a partner and we stay at mine it’s turned into a nightmare, I wake up with hip pain and can’t sleep at all. The mattress dips in the middle so being a side sleeper my hips aren’t straight and I wake up in agony. It’s got to the point where we no longer sleep at mine but am annoyed I didn’t return it now within the 3 month period as I didn’t find out until someone else slept In the bed with me!! I will now be saving for a memory foam one and not sure what to do with this! I think it it a pretty expensive purchase for me and not a common item to buy so I’m really disappointed and out of pocket!
Vågstranda superking size mattress - no unpacking advice *Verified ReviewerThis seems to be a good matress, although we haven't slept on it yet! But the packaging and the weight!! A few words of caution/advice before unpacking would have been very useful, i.e.:
*The white surface is the upper surface. This is extra important for this large size mattress, as it is VERY heavy, (40+ kilos), so if you get it wrong, it's a feat of strength to turn it over.
*When removing the strong plastic wrapping (it comes rolled), make sure you do this on the bed frame, as again, it is very heavy to move. ALSO, when you get to cutting the last bit of plastic wrapping beware, as it springs out very
strongly to become flat. So make sure you have nothing precious / breakable nearby.
Wanted to replace old mattressVerified ReviewerWanted to replace old mattress
AwfulVerified ReviewerBought this mattress around 5 months ago now at the recommendation of a friend. It is a solid/ heavy mattress and feels well made, i find it comfortable when sleeping on it alone however when my partner comes into the bed/moves in the bed i can feel every movement, and feel as though i am rolling into the middle of the bed. So much so I have to grip the edge whilst trying to get to sleep. This has gotten progressively worse and I wish i had returned this within the 3 month period. Now I am stuck with a mattress I hate and at least 4/5 nights a week I end up moving into the spare bedroom just to get a good nights sleep. Is is supposed to be individual pocket springs so I don't understand why this happens, perhaps a manufacturing fault. Wouldn't recommend this at all.
Love itVerified ReviewerGreat mattress. I didn't want to go for the dearest option and very glad I chose this. I wanted a deep mattress with good support but not hard and this is it!
Firmer, cheaper mattress was too firm- this is just rightVerified ReviewerI exchanged the first mattress I bought from IKEA, it was far too unyielding to sleep comfortably on my side.
This one, the medium firm version, is just right. It supports both me and my partner for a comfy night’s sleep.
If you don’t like your first choice, they will come for free, pick up your unwanted mattress and bring you a replacement one!
Thumbs up from me 👍
Check you receive the correct firmness on the packagingVerified ReviewerI bought a double and 2 singles for my house and they seem to be what I tried in the store, it is sometimes a bit confusing when selecting the firmness level, blink and you miss it on the packaging and I can’t see a label on the actual mattress which mentions firmness level. I might be wrong but I think by the mixed reviews it would appear people are mistakenly picking the wrong firmness in store, as the name is the same for both, or being delivered the wrong firmness and not checking the packaging first before opening.
I’m so far impressed with the ones I have and seem quite good value. I’m a Medium sleeper, not too soft, not too firm, just right!
Firm mattress is actually very softVerified ReviewerBought this mattress nearly 3 months ago, it s becoming softer and softer and gives no support for my back. Not sure how other people received a firm one. I am now waking up with low back pain. I do not recommend.
