The iComfort CF3000 Plush mattress is the softest 'CF' model in the iComfort collection and is rated extremely well for its pressure-relieving abilities and its perfect back support. It has several layers of cooling technology which we've reviewed for you here:

Comfort Scale Rating

The CF3000 Plush mattress is very soft comfort that we rate 9 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest). If your preference is a very soft bed then this mattress is an excellent choice. This extra soft comfort may feel uncomfortable for anyone who prefers a firm feeling bed and if so there are a few other 'CF' iComfort models that should be a better fit for you.

Here’s our quick Video Review. It highlights the features, benefits and our impression.

Pressure Test Results

We've pressure tested the iComfort CF3000 Plush mattress with small, average and large body size people on their sides and on their back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test.) 

This mattress performed exceptionally well during our pressure testing giving us good test results for all sleep position/body size combos and even earning a 'recommended' score for all the back sleepers. The pressure relief you can expect on your peak pressure points (hips and shoulders) is very good, there are minimal spots with an excess of pressure. Too much pressure on your joints will cause you to toss and turn at night, disturbing your sleep. This bed provides you with outstanding back support for proper spinal alignment, which is also necessary for a good night's sleep. If your spine is out of alignment while you sleep, you can develop stiffness, soreness, discomfort, and pain. which leads to a very unhappy you the next day. This mattress supports all the curves of your body very well so you should expect no troubles with spine alignment regardless of your body size or preferred sleep position.

Conclusion

This mattress is the absolute softest of the soft in the iComfort collection amongst the 'CF' models. It's so soft that some people might find the comfort to be too plush depending on your comfort preferences. If you're thinking about purchasing this model you need to be aware of just how soft it is, think of it like sleeping on a cloud. For those who desire this super-soft, plush, comfy feel then this mattress would be a great fit for you.

While the bed's comfort level is something to consider, this mattress does come with several layers of cooling materials. The three snowflakes sewn into the cover at the foot of the bed represent the three cooling layers. Serta has designed this model to be cool throughout the night. EverCool® Fuze Gel Memory Foam, Ultra-Cool Phase Change Material, and Carbon Fiber infused memory foam all work to draw heat away from your body

The comfort materials also earned this mattress excellent pressure testing scores, earning it a 'recommended' score for all back sleepers. It also performed fairly well for side sleepers, though it only earned them 'good' scores. What this means is that the mattress will give most people exceptional back support for proper spinal alignment and pretty good pressure peak point relief.

This mattress is a great choice for someone who wants a super soft bed. As an all-foam mattress with multiple layers of cooling technology, this model is hard to beat. Priced at $1,799 for a queen-size, the CF3000 Plush might be a little too spendy for some people. There are other options in the iComfort collection of 'CF' models that are a bit more affordable if that's the case. However, if the cost is no concern, then this model or one of the CF4000's might suit you well.
