  • Set entire mattress on the bed frame you intend to use (or any place you’d like while it expands into shape)

It is also important to point out that you may notice a slight odor once you remove the BedPillows mattress from the plastic cover. This smell is typical with new memory foam products (kind of like the ‘New Car Smell’) and is perfectly normal. No worries at all though; the odor will go away within a day or so and you won’t notice it at all.  Also, know that there are no harmful fumes to worry about, as our memory foam is CertiPUR-US® certified and had to pass rigorous emissions and content testing before being approved to ship to you.
