Have you ever ordered a compressed mattress?

Not an air mattress an actual coil mattress rolled and compressed for shipping.

I needed one in a pinch and have no truck and a low budget so I reluctantly ordered one off amazon. It is for the baby I couldn't trust a used mattress and still don't have a truck.

So I am hoping for the best. Anyone ever bought one? Do new mattresses need time to let off production gases? It says no VOCs but who knows what else is in the manufacturing process. It is made in USA

  • A memory foam mattress yes. Coiled no. It was fun watching the air go into it again and bring it back to life.
