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).

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 for most people.

The Main Ashley Chime 8 Inch Innerspring Firm Features in Detail

Chime 8 Inch Innerspring Firm mattress

  1. 1. High-Density Firming Bed

    A layer of high-density foam material provides a firm feel for this bed. There isn't much of this material in the bed but what is there will give you that 'hug' feeling that you expect in the softer part of the bed topper.

  2. 2. 2" High-Density Quilt Foam

    Quilted foam provides plush comfort in this mattress; it conforms to your body while also supporting you throughout the night.

  3. 3. CertiPUR-US Certified

    All Ashley Sleep foams are independently tested and certified to meet or exceed the highest quality standards.

  4. 4. Bonnell Coil Unit

    Each coil is connected to the other coils that surround it to create a solid support system. These tied coils easily flex allowing your body to sink into the mattress.

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’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 your support from the Bonnell Coil Unit, which is a traditional support system that's been used in mattresses for decades. While it does the job, it's not the most supportive with only 390 coils in a queen size. The coils are tied, which makes them more durable. However, this will also mean that motion on one side of the bed will likely be felt on the other side as well, so it's not really a good choice if more than one person is using the mattress. Two inches of High-Density Quilt foam add a bit more support and provide comfort.

This mattress is very inexpensive, and you get what you pay for. It's not going to last a long time with daily use, and it won't be super comfortable. I'd really only recommend it for a temporary situation or a guest room that isn't used often. If you need something fast, this mattress does have the benefit of easy quick shipping

I would not recommend this mattress to anyone who is shopping for a mattress to use nightly. Its lack of support and pressure relief would most likely end up giving you issues with back pain and poor sleep. However, this mattress would be a decent choice for a spare bedroom, particularly if you want to save money.
