As the title suggests...

I'm buying an Ikea bed frame and wondered what the mattress' would be like long term.

I will be sleeping on the bed.

Yes I have. I have 3. I use one myself. I have found them to be excellent. The one I am using is the "natural" one which is the most firm level (I have a bad back). I love it. Two of my children have the other ones, and I have also slept on them myself. I have found them all to be good and comfortable. I have had the mattresses for some years now, maybe 4 years? Not quite sure. But they have lasted well and are still feeling like new. I would buy ikea mattresses again.

Our last bed was from IKEA, mattress and base.  We slept comfortably on it for several years. We moved countries and bought a new bed and it got moved into the guest room, it is still very comfy.

That sounds really positive!

I bought a 'brand' bed a few years back, it was $3000. Its been a good bed but now the mattress is so soft. I am pretty unimpressed to be honest.

I've got an ikea base and mattress. Most comfortable bed ever!

Almost 4 years old and no sign of wearing out and DH and I are both rather heavy.
