Mattress quality changes over time
Since many reviewers love or hate with their Kingsdown mattresses, it is difficult to come to a consensus about its quality. One thing many reviewers agree on is that, over time, the Kingsdown Pillow Top Mattress loses its shape. This change in support came as a shock to reviewers who spent about $3000 on their queen sized Kingsdown mattresses.
“During the first 6 months I thought it was incredibly comfortable. Two years into it, and my girlfriend and I are switching sides night after night basically trading on who gets a good night’s sleep. At this point though, neither of us does. I can now feel every spring in the bed. My girlfriend and I continue to wake up several times during the night with shoulder cramps, back aches, and numb appendages.” - NaujaOda, Reviewer since 2010
“I wanted this mattress for 6 years. My back, neck and arthritis problems got so bad. I thought it would help me so we took every last cent for this mattress. At first, I loved it but it had not helped any problems. After now a year and half every time I lay on my sides my shoulder will be hurting severely [after] laying in bed.” - LisaPriceSpainhour, Reviewer since 2011
“We purchased a king sized, Kingsdown pillow top mattress. When we first got it, the bed was very comfortable and we had hoped it would stay that way for a long time. While the bed is still reasonably comfortable, the pillow top has become flattened and our bed now has two rather significant gullies, where each of us usually sleeps.” - sifudonna, Reviewer since 2009
Super soft support
Whether reviewers love it or hate it, they agree that this mattress is very soft.
“After trying every mattress at the store, my husband and I decided on the Kingsdown Pillow top. It was softer than we had thought we would like, but it was just amazing. I’ve been sleeping better than ever before and any time I sleep away from home, I’m disappointed and can’t wait to get back to my own bed!” - superbug81, Reviewer since 2010
“At first, I loved my mattress. And I still do. It is so incredibly soft and soothing. It is like laying on a cloud. As long as I sleep on my back or side. Over the past year or so, if I sleep on my stomach, I end up with horrible back pain. It is certainly worth the expense, but I’ve found that over the years, a pillow-top mattress may not suit those of us with back troubles to begin with.” - shaunna1123, Reviewer since 2010
Sweet dreams not guaranteed

When it comes to a big investment like a bed, it’s better to stick to tried and true high-rated mattresses. Thankfully, if you’re looking for a supportive mattress, there are plenty of reliable (and less expensive) options. Try the mattresses made by the Original Mattress Factory or one of the highly-rated Sleep Number bed mattresses.
