A great mattress- especially for bad backs and pets!!!
I was in the process of moving and my old mattress was over ten years old and giving me and my older dog all kinds of problems. I had a car accident injury that would act up a lot and the mattress was too soft to be of any help. My dog was almost 11 at the time and had arthritis and the mattress was so soft he couldn't get in and out of bed; I had to carry him. I was drawn to this mattress when I read the description because I wanted something very firm but still comfortable. My concern was that the mattress be comfortable for myself and my dog since he sleeps on it too.
The mattress arrived in a box very quickly with consistent updates (when it was being processed, shipped, etc). We had it shipped to our new apartment so that there would be plenty of room to unbox it and let it settle (it's recommended you give it 48 hours to fully form). We unboxed it in an empty room (make sure you have lots of space) and it was like unrolling a giant tube of cinnamon rolls! As soon as we cut the plastic, it started settling very quickly.
I'm pretty sure my dog did not give it the full 48 hours before he insisted on testing it. Our first night with the new mattress was great- it doesn't dip or leave an indent when you've slept in it for a while. My dog can move really easily on the mattress and sleeps very comfortably through the night. My back pain has gradually started to go away as well. The mattress also doesn't seem to collect a ton of body heat which is especially helpful in the summer!
I've had this mattress for over three months now and I am SO happy with it. I fall asleep much quicker than I did before and wake up much more comfortably. My dog prefers to spend as much of his day as possible on the bed- it is even preferable to his favorite spot on the couch he's had for years. I've been telling all my friends who need new beds to check out The Voila Box because a good mattress makes SUCH a huge difference in your quality of life. Good sleep helps everything!!
*I received this mattress complimentary; however, all opinions are entirely my own*

gesture of good will from Voila
We bought 2 twin extra-firm XL's around Xmas 2017 when we were in FL and had them delivered to the condo we bought in MA. We slept on them a few days, went back to FL, and then moved back to MA. June 7, 2018, so I have actually been sleeping on it for about 7 weeks. The extra firm mattress was too firm for my hips, neck, and shoulder (side-sleeper) but it was 100-day comfort guarantee, and I was well over the 100-day comfort guarantee. When I emailed Voila about this they offered to send me a 2" Performance enhancing gel-infused memory foam topper designed to complement their Voila Hybrid mattress. I appreciate this gesture of goodwill from Voila and must add my wife loves her extra firm mattress, as she did not like the "valley" that formed over time with mattresses we had in FL.

Light Sleeping No More!
Purchased a medium queen sized Voila for my parents and they have loved the bed from day 1. My father is a light sleeper and will wake up randomly through the night for whatever reason and not fall asleep. With the Voila bed, he has been sleeping through the night and is less grouchy overall.
When I need to replace my own bed, I will be buying a Voila for myself. Worth every penny.

We received our mattress yesterday. It was two days early! Being an older couple, we hired our grandson and friend to carry it upstairs. It was easy to unpack and the plastic removed without problem. There was no smell. We let it rest for 4 hours. Then I made it up with our queen sheets. They fit better on this bed than on anyone bed we have had. Six hours later we tried it briefly with my husband saying it might be too hard. I ordered the plush for him.
Well we had a fantastic first night sleep! I hesitated to order a bed online but so far we are completely happy.

Firm Mattress Review - Five Stars
I had a 100% memory foam mattress for the past three years and decided to get a new one after I herniated a disc in my back about a year ago and my doctor suggested upgrading to a firmer mattress to help support my back while sleeping. I ended up settling on the firm Voila and it has been a substantial upgrade to my memory foam mattress. I find it much more supportive than the "firm" memory foam mattress I had, and since purchasing it about 4 months ago I haven't noticed any degradation in the shape of the bed. Recently I've been able to start doing athletic activity again, and I think part of that is due to upgrading my bed to a firmer, better mattress. I sleep really well, and feel great getting out of bed in the morning. I'm extremely satisfied with the bed and would definitely recommend their firm mattress to someone searching more back support.
The one thing to note that I didn't expect is that, coming to Voila from a 100% memory foam mattress, this bed is HEAVY. Makes sense when you think about the implications of the construction, but it shocked me when I was moving the bed from the box to my bedframe, especially considering I have a bad back! But that isn't a reason not to buy it. Just be careful the first time you try to pick it up!
