|Durability / longevity||C||Owner experience data suggests that the mattresses have on average about five- to six-year useful life with regular use. This is similar to other mattresses in this price range. As the mattresses age, they will likely become softer and or sag.|

Most owners describe the feel of their Comfort Dreams mattress as firm yet soft – meaning that the mattress is supportive yet provides pressure point relief. The "select-a firmness" models get their name from the fact that they are available in soft, medium or firm. Owners report, however, that there tends to be little difference between these choices and that all firmnesses tend to be more firm than soft.|
|Back sleep friendly||b||Comfort Dreams tends to be suitable for back sleepers.|
|Side sleep friendly||c+||The tendency of the mattresses to be more firm than soft may result in less than ideal comfort for some side sleepers.|
|Stomach sleep friendly||b||Comfort Dreams tends to be suitable for stomach sleepers.|
|Contours to body||b-||Overall, the mattresses have no better than moderate contouring-to-the-body properties. Models, however, that use 4.0 lbs/ft memory foam will likely be somewhat more contouring than models that use less dense memory foam.|
