What Solay customers have to say

Solay IRL Customer Review

Meet Taylor & Dan

Taylor and Dan live in Raleigh, NC. Dan works in Sales for a company called Dude Solutions, and Taylor is a Project Coordinator for the University of Chapel Hill’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute.

They share their mattress with their three dogs (yes, three!). Dan is primarily a back sleeper and Taylor usually sleep on her side, but they’re both a little all over the place throughout the night. Taylor and Dan both tend to sleep hot (especially when they are joined by their dogs!) and Dan suffers from occasional back pain.

Before owning their Solay, Taylor and Dan slept on an Original Mattress Factory – Orthopedic Firm. Here’s what they said about the Solay…

On Selection and Buying Process

“Ultimately we felt like the Solay mattress was the best match for us. The cooling gel foam and temperature regulating cover were exactly what we were looking for!

An added bonus was the reducing motion transfer technology. We felt like we could really get a good night’s sleep on this mattress.

Something unique to Solay that also sold us is that for every mattress sold, Solay donates a mattress and box spring to a child in need!”

After One Night

“Usually we are both up at least once during the night, and neither of us got up! The bed feels medium firm and is incredibly comfortable. We didn’t feel each other moving around as much either, and also didn’t feel the dogs jump off the bed in the middle of the night.”

After One Week

“First week’s sleep on the Solay felt great. We are still not feeling each other move around as much which has helped us stay asleep throughout the night and wake up feeling rested. The dogs seem to love it too. ???? We find ourselves wanting to stay in bed longer in the morning because of how comfortable it is.”

The finer print

Delivery

The Solay mattress ships free and should arrive at your doorstep within 3-7 business days.

Setup

The Solay mattress comes compressed and rolled up on a box. You will simply unbox the mattress and place the roll at the end of your bed frame, remove the vacuum-sealed packaging and watch it spring to life.

Foundation

Your Solay can be used on most traditional mattress foundations, like box springs, platform bed frames, slatted frames and adjustable bases.

Return policy

If you’re not happy with your Solay mattress, you can return it for a full refund within your 101-night trial period. Solay will arrange for a representative to come to your home to pick up your mattress and donate it to a local charity.

Warranty

The Solay mattress comes with a 15-year limited warranty.

Bonus points

  • Made in the USA.
  • For each Solay mattress sold, a child in need will receive one bed and one box spring.
  • The foams used to make the Solay mattress are CertiPUR-US Certified, meaning they are good for you and the environment.
