These mattresses are generally called mattress in a box because the beds delivered in a box.
Mattresses in a box are increasingly popular, due to their convenience and value. Unlike innerspring designs, in a box mattresses can be compressed without causing damage. Many Australian mattress brands package their products this way for easy delivery and set up
A bed in a box is well… what it sounds like! It’s a mattress, generally made of a combination of high-quality memory foam and springs, that’s vacuum-packed and cleverly rolled in a box for convenient home delivery.
A growing number of mattress in a box now with a sleep trial, I think they all do or at least every mattress brand we review does. During your sleep trial, you are allowed to sleep on it at home and still send it back for a full refund if you decide you don’t like it.
Most Australian mattress brands offer trial periods as long as three months, and most retailers collect the mattress free of charge.
As always, though, you must read the terms and conditions of any sleep trial.
The return policy for every mattress brand is different, so you must check there a website or see if the information is in our reviews. With the mattress in a box companies, you will find in the sleep trial, or if the mattress is damaged, they will pick it up and return it, which is way easier than buying a mattress in the store and having to return the bed there.

If you’ve been shopping around for a new bed, you might have seen that box springs are no longer popular.
Most mattress companies now sell solid metal or wood foundations, and if they sell a ‘box spring’ it’s most likely one without springs.
The reason? Mattresses have changed a lot from decades ago.
Box springs were designed to absorb shock because mattresses were much thinner back then. Most mattress companies recommend a stable platform underneath your bed for support.
A new mattress a take anywhere from 30 – 90 days to “fully” break-in. Usually, it doesn’t take that long. Breaking in a bed can be like breaking in a new pair of shoes, it may seem uncomfortable for a little while, but it soon softens and conforms to your body.
Your new mattress will instantly start to decompress after opening the packaging and will be ready to sleep on after a few hours. However, we recommend waiting around 12-24 hours to allow it to fully decompress.
Online mattress have the same lifespan as regular mattresses. The lifespan is around 7-10 years.
