This is another mattress from a company that continues to get solid marks from buyers. Dynasty Mattress manufactures popular memory foam mattresses at affordable prices, and their 10 inch memory foam unit is no exception. This mattress is getting great reviews and ratings from consumers and a King size version can be purchased for just over $450. It is available in a wide range of sizes and carries a 20-year warranty.
The mattress has 3 layers and is comprised of both memory foam and base foam. The memory foam is fairly dense and limited in depth which can make the mattress feel a little firm – most consumers like this but some do not.
The following sizes are available:
- California King
- Twin XL
The 10 inch memory foam mattress has several layers as can be seen in the image to the right. In this image layer (a) is 3 inches thick and is made of high density 5.3 lbs/cubic-foot memory foam. Layer (b) is 7 inches of high resilience polyurethane base foam. Layer (c) - which is within layer (b) - is made up of two smaller layers of cooling airflow base foam which helps increase the breathability of the mattress and limit heat buildup.
The mattress also comes with a cotton cover. The cover has a zipper and can be removed, washed and replaced. To facilitate shipping the mattress will arrived vacuum packed and compressed. Upon unpacking it takes a several hours to expand to its full size. When it arrives you may not want to open it right away because when unpacked it is large, heavy and awkward to move. You may want to take it to the room in which you intend to use it then open it.
The mattress carries a 20-year limited warranty and also includes a 120-day trial. The 120-day trial allows you to return the mattress for a full refund should you not like it, however you are responsible for the packaging, shipping and freight necessary to get the mattress back to the Dynasty Mattress warehouse. Given the size and weight of the mattress this is likely no small amount.

On Amazon this mattress has garnered 39 customer reviews which have resulted in a very high score of 4.7 stars out of 5. You can read the customer reviews here if you wish. Also, we have noted that it can be confusing looking for Dynasty Mattress products on Amazon, and it would appear that they are sometimes labeled under Dynasty Mattress and other times under the SilverRest Sleep Shop.
Most owners report that the mattress does have a chemical "paint-like" odor after it is unpacked, and the amount of time it takes for this odor to dissipate varies from report to report. Some owners indicate that the chemical smell dissipates in 24 hours while others say it takes about a week. The most common timeframe is “a couple of days”
There are quite a few reports from owners that sleeping on the bed has helped their bad backs and also helped alleviate joint pain. Indeed, in another of our articles on memory foam we describe it as a material that “moulds to your individual body shape and retains that shape to offer your body support where it needs it most. Unlike a hard mattress, it does not stiffen joints but instead ensures that they are where they are supposed to be – correctly aligned and supported with the correct amount of pressure dispersed up and down the length of your body.“ It is these properties that are likely helping folks with their back and joint issues.
Also, memory foam mattress sometimes retain heat and consumers often highlight this issue as "sleeping hot”. Fortunately this mattress does not seem to suffer from heat retention and this is likely due to the multiple layers of convoluted foam that allow the passage of air.
Motion transfer is also very limited with a memory foam mattress and this property is favored by many owners. This is most noted by those who have recently switched from an innerspring mattress.
Several owners mention that this mattress is quite firm when you first start sleeping on it. However, others highlight that the unit gradually breaks in and adapts to your body becoming much more comfortable after a week or more. For those who still feel it is too firm after the “break in” period, a memory foam topper may help. A mattress with a thicker layer of memory foam (6 inches) may also provide a less-firm sleep experience. The Luxury Grand 14-Inch Memory Foam Mattress is also extremely popular and you can check out our review here. This mattress is also manufactured by Dynasty Mattress and while it is still firm it is not quite as firm as the 10 inch.
