Material and Construction
The BedStory 12-Inch Lavender Memory Foam Mattress is an all-foam mattress. The mattress combines flexible memory foam, convoluted foam, and high-density foam to provide a good balance of conforming comfort and deep support.
The mattress features four distinct layers: a fire-resistant barrier, a layer of pure memory foam, a layer of air-circulation foam, and, lastly, a layer of high-density support foam. All these foam layers work together to consistently give you a good night’s sleep.
For safer use, the top layer of the mattress features material that’s coated with fire retardants. As of 2007, all mattresses sold in the US are required to contain enough fire retardants to withstand blowtorch flames. You don’t have to worry, though, as this BedStory memory foam mattress meets the CFR1633 Standard, which certifies that the mattress has met federal standards for mattress flammability. You can be sure that this BedStory mattress is completely non-toxic and safe for use.
The mattress’ comfort layer comprises a 2.5-inch layer of pure memory foam. This memory foam is of premium quality, so you can be sure that it will provide the flexibility and conforming properties you need for your sleeping position. The memory foam layer in this mattress has a high density rating, which means it has more material per cubic foot compared to low-density memory foam.
Because more material is in this memory foam layer and because of the foam’s structure of smaller cells, the memory foam on this BedStory mattress tends to have a more firm feel. The high density of this BedStory mattress’ memory foam layer also makes the mattress heavier overall.
What makes this BedStory memory foam mattress unique is the lavender infusion in its memory foam layer. Known as an anxiety reliever, lavender has long been studied for its effects on sleep. Some studies have found that lavender can improve the quality of sleep, while others discovered that lavender helped slow down the heartbeat and soothe the muscles, which contributed to more sound sleep. Lavender is equally infused throughout the entire mattress, so you’ll enjoy the infusion’s benefits no matter where you sleep.
At 7 inches, the mattress’ layer of air-circulation foam is significantly thicker compared to the other two layers. This air-circulation layer features convoluted foam. Also called egg-crate foam, convoluted foam has a ridged design of peaks and valleys. This unique design promotes the flow of air throughout the mattress, drawing heat away from your body and ensuring that you enjoy a steady flow of fresh air. Convoluted foam is also known for its flexibility. This pliable middle layer of foam supports the memory foam layer’s ability to conform to your body’s shape.
The base layer of the BedStory 12-Inch Lavender Memory Foam mattress is made from high-density support foam. This support base balances out the conforming softness of the mattress’ top two layers. High-density foam typically has a very firm feel, so it’s an excellent material to use as a base layer for a mattress. Most high-density foams are made from a blend of polyurethane material. This layer of 2.5 inches thick, so you can be sure that the base layer can provide adequate support for the softer comfort layers.
All the foam layers of this BedStory mattress are protected by a cover made from non-woven knit fabric. The knit fabric is flexible and stretchy, which improves the mattress’ ability to provide comfort. The cover is also hypoallergenic and breathable, features that help the mattress’ maintain its comfort levels.
The foam layers in this BedStory mattress are certified by CertiPUR-US, so you can be sure that the mattress meets industry standards for content, durability, and emissions. The mattress is free from harmful substances, including ozone depleters, mercury, lead, and formaldehyde. The Certi-PUR certification also ensures that the mattress doesn’t contain any restricted flame retardants.
This BedStory memory foam mattress is also compressed, rolled, and vacuum-sealed into a box prior to shipping. This way, you can easily set up the mattress on its base. This memory foam mattress may take anywhere from 40 to 72 hours to fully expand.

Comfort and Ergonomics
The BedStory 12-Inch Lavender Memory Foam Mattress is composed of multiple foam layers, all designed to provide utmost comfort. The memory foam mattress is perfectly designed, from its cover to its base layer, so you can always enjoy rejuvenating sleep.
This BedStory memory foam mattress comes with plenty of features that will improve the quality of sleep you get each night. Of course, what makes this mattress unique is the infusion of lavender oil in its memory foam layer. Lavender is known for its ability to relieve anxiety and increase relaxation, and these will make it easier for your body to settle into sleep. Scientific studies even say that lavender can interact with neurotransmitters that calm the brain and reduce agitation and restlessness. With the mattress’ lavender infusion, you’ll find it easier to relax in bed.
The lavender essential oil infused in the memory foam layer also gives this BedStory mattress a sweet scent. Lavender naturally purifies the air, too, so this mattress can help improve the quality of indoor air.
Aside from calming you down with its lavender infusion, this BedStory mattress is capable of helping you achieve the perfect sleep temperature.
The mattress has a breathable knit cover that’s designed to be breathable. The mattress cover easily wicks away heat and moisture, helping your body breathe. With its breathability, the cover helps keep you cool and dry in bed. This means you can wake up sweat-free. The cover’s ability to wick away moisture and dry quickly also helps the mattress stay fresh and clean.
This BedStory memory foam mattress’ cooling properties are improved by the mattress’ middle layer of Air-Circulation foam layer. This layer features a thick piece of convoluted foam. Convoluted foam is efficient at promoting airflow, so this middle layer will improve the amount of air moving throughout the mattress. With sufficient air flowing around your body, the mattress will lower your overall body temperature. This way, you’ll find it easier to fall into a deep sleep and you won’t wake up because you’re feeling too hot.
All these features in the BedStory mattress makes it easier for you to cool down in bed and reach the ideal sleeping temperature. This ensures deep, uninterrupted sleep each night.
Of course, the BedStory memory foam mattress does more than just regulate your sleeping temperature. This mattress comes with a 2.5-inch layer of memory foam, so you can be sure that it will provide the conforming comfort you need. The mattress is designed to give you just the right mix of firmness and softness.
The memory foam layer in this mattress has a high density rating. High-density memory foam is preferred by more people because of the material’s ability to relieve pain. Memory foam does this by ensuring even weight distribution and improving circulation throughout the body. By ensuring equal weight distribution on the mattress’ surface, the memory foam helps relieve stress on pressure points. You won’t even feel your own weight on the mattress.
The high density rating of the memory foam layer also increases the amount of contouring provided by this BedStory mattress. The mattress is more efficient at following your body’s shape. You’ll definitely feel that ‘hug’ you’re looking for in a memory foam mattress. The high density rating of the memory foam layer also results in a slightly slower response time compared to lower-density memory foam.
Since the memory foam is able to cradle your body, the mattress completely yields to your shape. It adjusts to fit the position you’re sleeping in, rather than forcing your body to adjust to the mattress’ surface. You won’t feel any resistance against your body as you lay in bed. This is a great benefit if certain parts of your body are sensitive to pressure.
This BedStory mattress is also designed to keep your spine in proper alignment, no matter what position you sleep in. The memory foam layer and high-density support base work together to allow your spine to stay in a neutral position. This ensures that you wake up without muscle tension or soreness in your back. The mattress also provides adequate lumbar support and follows the natural curve of the spine, so you can sleep in a more ergonomic position.
The firmness of the mattress’ base layer of high-density support foam keep you from sinking too far into the mattress and feeling smothered. This is why the mattress strikes the perfect balance between contouring and support.
The mattress even ensures long-lasting comfort even for light sleepers. The foam layers prevent motion transfer, so you can enjoy uninterrupted sleep even if your partner tends to change positions often during the night.
For added convenience, the edges are just as supportive as the rest of this BedStory mattress. This works great for people who want to take advantage of the mattress’ surface or like to sit on the edge of the bed. Sufficient edge support ensures that you won’t roll or slide off the bed.
The BedStory 12-Inch Lavender Memory Foam Mattress won’t trigger any allergic reactions or sensitivities, thanks to its hypoallergenic cover. Memory foam is naturally hypoallergenic, too, and the dense structure of the mattress’ memory foam layer ensure that dust mites, mold, and other allergens don’t work their way into the mattress’ layers.
The mattress is also completely safe to use, thanks to its CertiPUR-US certification. It doesn’t contain any substances or chemicals that are harmful to your health. Low VOC emissions from the mattress also help improve the quality of indoor air.
Durability and Warranty

If you find that your BedStory mattress has some factory defects, though, you don’t have to worry. Each BedStory mattress comes with a 10-year warranty. The warranty protects your purchase and ensures that you get value for money.
One thing that ensures the durability of this BedStory mattress is the high density rating of the memory foam layer. High-density memory foam is always more durable than low-density foam. Since there is more material in the layer, the memory foam is less likely to break down from the wear and tear of daily use.
According to sleep experts, with proper care, high-density memory foam can last for decades. You can count on the memory foam to retain its contouring capabilities even after years of use.
Aside from its high-density rating, the natural antibacterial properties of the memory foam layer ensures the mattress’ longevity. By discouraging the growth of bacteria and mold, the memory foam layer keeps the mattress from wearing down from the inside.
All the layers in the BedStory 12-inch lavender-infused memory foam mattress are designed to stand against regular wear and tear, so you can expect this mattress to last you for years. Of course, the CertiPUR-US certification on the mattress’ foam layers ensures that it has met industry standards for content and durability.
The thickness of the mattress also helps improve its durability. Thicker mattresses, like this BedStory mattress, tend to last longer compared to mattresses with a slimmer profile. The mattress won’t fully compress under the weight of the sleeper; this helps maintain the structure and rigidity of this BedStory mattress.
