A bed in a box (also known as BIAB or mattress in a box) is a mattress that’s compressed, shrink-wrapped, folded, then rolled into a cardboard box for shipping. Bed in a box mattresses are typically made of foam, but there are a few innerspring hybrid options available on the market.
While this allows BIAB companies to save on freight costs, it takes a severe toll on the integrity of the foam mattress by breaking down the cell structure of the foams. It can also result in uneven firmness and sinking support in some areas, reducing the overall lifespan of the mattress.
