Comfort Scale Rating

The Chime 8 Inch Innerspring Firm mattress is rated a 3 out of 10 on our Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest). This bed will feel firm, but not hard and will appeal to you if you prefer a firmer feeling mattress.  However, if you like a medium or a softer feeling bed then you should consider a different model.

Pressure Test Results

We pressure tested the Chime 8 Inch Innerspring Firm mattress using people with large, medium, and petite body types.  Each person laid on their back and side sleeping positions to give us the best overall results for the majority of people  (learn how we test).

Contrary to expected results this mattress has been scored as 'not recommended' for all body size/sleep position combinations.  Innerspring mattresses tend to perform well for back sleepers because of adequate support but this model obviously did not.  Throughout the mattress, there is poor back support and a lack of pressure relief making for a bed that's likely not very comfortable.

  1. 1. High-Density Firming Bed

  3. 3. CertiPUR-US Certified

  4. 4. Bonnell Coil Unit

Warranty

The Chime 8 Inch Innerspring Firm mattress has a 10-year warranty against factory defects.

Conclusion

The Chime 8 Inch Innerspring Firm Mattress by Ashley is a firm feeling bed.  And it’s also one of the cheapest beds you’ll find for a name brand mattress.  It typically sells in stores under $200 in a queen size.  It’s a firm mattress, so it will only appeal if you like a firmer feeling bed.  If you like soft beds then you’ll want to shop for something else. 

You get good support from the Bonnell Coil Unit, which is a traditional support system that's been used in mattresses for decades.  Two inches of High-Density Quilt foam give you plush comfort while adding to the firm coil support.  The materials in this bed are good quality, but not “premium” grade.

The value you get from this mattress comes from the quality materials for the price.  Selling in stores for under $200 for a Queen size, this mattress is a great deal.  This mattress also has the added benefit of easy and fast shipping.  However, please keep in mind this mattress is under $200, so if you’re shopping for your master bedroom you may want to consider better-equipped beds.  I would not recommend this mattress to anyone who wants a regular use every-night bed, its lack of support and pressure relief would make for a very uncomfortable night of sleep.  However, this mattress would be a great choice for a spare bedroom, particularly if you want to save money!
