What Nora customers have to say
- “I honestly didn’t think a foam mattress would feel so good compared to my traditional mattress! Shipping was nice and easy, and unboxing was fun to watch. Sleeping on it was a “dream” (pardon the pun) – woke up nice and rested – looking forward to sleeping on it again!” – Thomas
- “Great buy! My husband and I were looking for something new that would fit both of our comfort needs. We had a memory foam mattress that was just OK, and really wasn’t cutting it when I got pregnant. The Nora mattress has exceeded our expectations. Shipping was quick, and the packaging was neat and easy. We both woke up well rested (finally!) and agreed that it was the perfect complement to his need of a “firm” mattress and my need for a “cushion-y ” mattress. I don’t think you can beat this in terms of comfort and price. Thank you NORA from my soon to be family of 3!” – Jamie
- “I’m so happy we decided to switch to a memory foam mattress! I’m obsessed. I knew a memory foam mattress would be different but it’s SUCH a difference. The shock-absorbent quality is amazing. I don’t even notice when my husband gets up or moves. The cooling cover is a major plus. We love it!!”
