Bed in Box mattresses have gained popularity in the last few years. The Indian market is dotted with many online sellers who have joined the Mattress in a box bandwagon offering double, single, diwan, queen & king sizes. This is fuelled by rising demand from consumers who now prefer buying online. Several brands are in the market, including Sunday Mattress, which is considered a gold standard amongst new-age mattress brands.

For this article, we purchased the mattresses and tested them in the lab for comfort and technical characteristics. You will find these images taken in our lab in different places in the article. We also highlight some of the issues we noticed with bed in box mattresses. We think it is very important, but not many articles discuss it.  So, we also reviewed non-compressed mattress brands, such as Sunday, which we felt was the best mattress overall.

Reviewer: Ujjwala Radhakrishnan and her team are passionate about home décor, especially mattresses. They analyse and test multiple mattresses and bedding products annually. They have included the actual pictures of these mattresses from the lab - you do not want to miss these!
Methodology: We test every mattress featured in our reviews and buying guide to provide accurate, data-driven recommendations. The mattresses undergo tests for foam purity, firmness, or faulty dimensions. Foam is tested for filler content & IFD. We also look for sleeping comfort and, importantly, affordability.

Despite the craze around the bed in a box mattress, few people know that bed in a box mattresses are produced by compressing a large mattress into a small box (which is just 30% of the mattress size). This is a big issue that not many customers are aware of. To achieve this compression, 25000 kilos weight is put on the bed, and during this process, the mattress loses almost 30% of its life. Compressed mattresses become soft very fast. Even though brands offer a ten-year warranty, the warranty does not cover softening. We researched thousands of reviews and found long-term issues with a Bed in Box mattresses. Most of these issues come up after 4-5 years of use.

Sunday mattress (not a compressed mattress!) is hands down the best choice in the market. It does not compress its mattresses and offers superior comfort with advanced sleep technology. Brands like Wakefit have become synonymous with Bed in Box in India, among other players. They are very popular because of the price. If you are looking for a short-term arrangement of 1-2 years, brands such as Wakefit or Amazon Solimo make a great choice.

Bed in Box Mattress: What is it?

Bed in Box, also known as Mattress in Box, are compressed mattresses rolled and packed in a box. It is delivered to the consumer, and after unpacking, it decompresses and can be used for sleeping.

Traditionally, the experience of buying a mattress involved walking into a shop and testing each mattress that was on display. The salesperson would tell you about the specifications of the products and help you choose. Then the bed will be delivered to your house. In the American and European markets, delivery is expensive, and the shipping cost adds to the price of the mattress. So, the Bed in Box, wherein the mattresses are compressed and rolled to fit in a box, gained popularity with both sellers and customers in these markets with the advent of online shopping, bedding also began to be sold online. As online shopping gained prominence in India, compressed mattresses found acceptance. Since then, this method of selling mattresses has become popular. And every day, you can find a new company selling Bed in Box mattresses on e-commerce websites.

How is a mattress compressed and packed in a box?

Firstly, the mattress is enclosed in a protective plastic cover. It is then laid out on a surface, and a compression machine compresses the mattress to squeeze out the air trapped in the foam. The compression is done using 25 tons of weight. Once the bed reduces in size, it is rolled and packed into a box. Since compression reduces the size of the mattress significantly, it can be shipped via standard methods. Therefore, the customers save costs on shipping and delivery of the bed.

No material as such lends itself to compression. It is because it compromises the structural integrity of the mattress. However, certain materials fare better in this respect than others. Dense foam, like memory foam and latex, is the easiest to compress and pack. Memory foam has a distinctive cell structure, which lends the ability to retain shape even after applying pressure. Compression is done by putting 25-50 tons of pressure on the mattress. This crushes the bed and compromises its cell structure. It can reduce the overall life of your mattress by 30%. Once the product is received and unboxed, it decompresses slowly in a few hours or takes up to 48 hours.

Materials such as cotton, coir, and spring should not be compressed. Compressing them will do irreversible damage to the material fillings. Also, once unboxed, the mattress may not decompress completely. This will end up compromising the thickness and overall comfort of the bed. Therefore, you should be careful when buying your mattress via a Bed in Box delivery method.

How to Unpack a Bed in Box Mattress

Once you remove the packet from the box, put the rolled mattress on the bed or surface where you want to install it. On opening the vacuum cover, air starts to fill the inside. This helps the mattress to regain its shape and size. However, it takes some time before you can start sleeping on it. Unlike uncompressed mattresses, a Bed in Box needs a minimum of 4-6 hours to be used.

Bed in Box Mattress: Pros and Cons

Compressed mattresses have their benefits and shortcomings. We have listed the pros and cons for you to consider carefully before finalising your pick.


Ease of delivery - Bed in Box has become popular because they are easy to transport and are deliverable to the consumer's doorstep. Compression reduces the weight of the mattress by half, making it easier to move. The rising demand for memory foam beds has also contributed to their adoption by many companies.

Cost Saving - Bed in Box companies generally function online, saving costs on many fronts. They can price their products lower and offer free delivery, which is a good option for people on a budget.

Pros and Cons of Bed in Box Mattress
Pros and Cons of Bed in Box Mattress


Material damage - Once the mattress is compressed, it stays in that state till it is delivered and unboxed for use. Compression puts pressure on the material, which can cause wear and tear to the mattress. The foam becomes soft and may lose buoyancy, making the surface softer than required. Crushing the foam can prevent its capability to provide contouring. Studies have also found that Bed in Box mattresses have a shorter lifespan than non-compressed ones.

Size change - Sometimes, the mattress does not fully decompress after unboxing. For instance, a 6-inch mattress can lose up to 0.5 to 1 inch in height. This can compromise the quality and create unnecessary hassle of returning the product. A Bed in Box can also take much time to decompress and provide reduced contouring benefits.

Foam density - It is difficult to compress and roll the high-density foam. Therefore, getting high-density foam via a Bed in Box is impossible. A compressed bed might not serve the purpose if you want a thicker mattress to withstand heavy weight.

Low Durability - The compression process might cause damage to the foam structure. The foam density is also not very high. As a result, Bed in Box mattresses do not have a long lifespan. The low density does not offer enough plushness, which might affect the comfort and support.

Off-Gassing - Off-gassing is when volatile compounds leave the mattress and get released into the air. This phenomenon is common in petroleum-based products like mattress foams. Off-gassing also produces a chemical smell that can last for many days. People sensitive to such odours may find the purchase experience of Bed in Box unpleasant.

Research Tip: Compressing a mattress might damage the foam. It also can cause permanent deformation of the mattress.

Buying a Bed in Box? Tips to Follow

The Bed in Box mattresses generally have memory foam as their material. The comfort of these mattresses depends upon their thickness, foam quality, and density. A good bed should provide proper spinal alignment, comfort, and overall support. You should keep the following factors in mind when buying a new mattress.

Mattress Firmness

Medium-firm mattresses are suitable for everyone as they perfectly balance support and comfort. Both compressed and uncompressed mattresses are available in different levels of firmness. Choose soft, hard, plush, or medium firmness, as per your preference.


The comfort level of a mattress depends upon many factors. Some contributing factors include thickness, motion isolation, breathability, and reinforced edges. Be sure to check each of these before you finalise the mattress.

  • Firmness level determines support, softness, and cushioning.
  • Thickness affects the body weight it can support and the plushness of the bed.
  • Motion isolation is essential if you co-sleep with your partner, child, or pet.
  • A breathable mattress allows ample air circulation within itself, and it also helps keep the bed cool.
  • Plunging edges can lead to discomfort. The integrity of the edges is essential, especially for side sleepers.


Compression is suitable only for foam materials, and other materials will break and get permanently damaged. So, when it comes to Bed in Box mattresses, choose either memory foam, latex variant, or a combination of both.

A long-term warranty on any product gives the assurance of quality. Most top manufacturers provide a warranty of more than five years. Always check for clauses that have information on inclusions and exclusions in the warranty.

Sleep Trial

A Bed in Box mattress without a sleep trial is a risky purchase. It is difficult to assess a compressed mattress without trying it once. So, look for mattresses that offer sleep trials since you will have the option of returning them if it does not suit your purpose.

Return and refund policy

It goes without saying that when purchasing mattresses online, the product should be returnable and refundable. Do not forget to check the return and refund policy. 

Risks of buying a Bed in Box Mattress

Despite the convenience and cost savings, many established brands, such as Sleepwell and Kurlon in India, have not adopted Bed in Box. In addition, some quality-focused start-ups, such as Sunday, do not compress the mattress. There are various reasons that companies still bank on selling uncompressed mattresses to consumers. Some of these reasons why brands selling top-quality mattresses have not gotten on the Bed in Box bandwagon include.

  • Damage to the material - Compressing and rolling weaken the structure of the foam. It can even cause damage to its edges and surface. This process adds unnecessary risk both for the supplier and the consumer.
  • Lesser lifespan - The weakened cell structure of the foam due to compression lessens its durability. This reduces the lifespan of a mattress by two to three years.

  • Not very cost-effective - Although Bed in Box is known for reducing delivery costs, it is not precisely valid for the Indian market. That is because shipping and transportation costs in India are among the cheapest. So, while it saves you some amount on delivery charges, it is not a significant saving. Moreover, the reduced lifespan significantly increases the cost in the long run.
  • Marketing gimmick - In the context of the Indian market, Bed in Box is more of a marketing move by companies rather than providing any real value to consumers. Getting a mattress in a box is an idea that sounds attractive and may be convenient for some people. However, the trade-off is with the durability and quality of the product.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why should I buy a Bed in Box?

    If you are on a limited budget and quality is not a big concern, then Bed in Box might be suitable. Many new brands target college students, young professionals, and new parents in this space. A Bed in Box is also suited to people who want to move from the traditional mattresses made with cotton and cloth filling for the first time.

  2. What is the average life of a Bed in a Box?

    Compressing a mattress reduces its life by up to 30%. While in the short run, you save some costs but do not get a highly durable product. The average lifespan of a compressed mattress is up to 5-7 years. However, brands like Sunday sell uncompressed mattresses at similar price points.

  3. Why do mattresses sag?

    Sagging refers to the softening and collapsing of the mattress in some areas frequently exposed to pressure. For instance, the regions supporting hips and shoulders are prone to more pressure than others. It results from normal wear and tear of the mattress, one of the most common complaints among mattress users. Several causes may lead to sagging but compressing mattresses cause the bed to sag earlier than it otherwise would.

  4. How is a Bed in Box rolled and packed in a box?

    The primary material used in Bed in Box mattresses is memory foam. The unique feature of memory foam is its resilient structure. It can be compressed and rolled, bouncing back and expanding into its original space once unboxed. For compression, manufacturers use a powerful hydraulic press to apply pressure and shrink the mattress to half its original thickness. It becomes more accessible for the machine to roll it then, and the rolled-up mattress is then put in a box.

  5. How does a Bed in Box expand after taking it out of the packed box?

    Once you take the mattress out of the box, the air fills its cell structure. The viscoelasticity of the memory foam allows it to return to its original size. It generally takes around 24-72 hours for the mattress to reach its actual size fully. Although, it takes only 4-6 hours to expand to about 90% of its original size. Other factors also affect the expansion time. For instance, heat reduces the viscosity of the material. It increases fluidity, meaning memory foam will expand faster in a warmer room. Similarly, a mattress with more density is firmer. Hence, a denser product will take longer to expand, and a thicker mattress will also take longer to decompress.

  6. Will my Bed in Box get softer?

    All mattresses have a break-in period, usually lasting around 50 to 60 nights of regular use. Beds get a little softer within this period. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing. It generally serves to temper down the extra firmness of a new mattress.

  7. Do I have to wait 48 hours to use my Bed in Box mattress?

    The first 4-6 hours after unboxing is when most of the expansion occurs, which is the off-gassing period. However, complete decompression takes anywhere between 24-48 hours. But you can use the mattress after the initial expansion itself. So, you can sleep on the new bed after 6 hours of unboxing it.

  8. How long can memory foam stay compressed?

    Storing your mattress for longer than two months may significantly reduce its durability quality. This is true of both memory foam mattresses wrapped in packages and those that are rolled up. Therefore, we advise you to expand the product before two months of packaging.
