I got the treat to test out the popular Emma mattress out of the European market.
Right out of the box it was very simple to setup and get ready for a good night’s sleep. The box included a well wrapped vacuum sealed mattress along with a simple set of instructions that included a safety blade for cutting open the wrap from the mattress. After cutting and removing the cling wrap type plastic out rolled the mattress all sealed up in a compressed vacuum sealed bag, after cutting it open and removing the package the mattress basically inflated itself. Although technically it was just taking its original form, I was expecting it to be like others on the market that you must leave for quite a few hours to return to its proper size and shape, but no it was nearly done within a few minutes. I did end up leaving it for about an hour before making the bed and getting it ready for out first night’s sleep.
I knew even before getting this mattress I was going to be a really good candidate for putting the Emma mattress to the ultimate test. I was chosen to test this mattress without anyone knowing anything about me. In any reviews I do I am about honesty and that is what makes me good with my reviews. I am a very large man weighing just over 300 lbs., I have had back issues since my mid 20s when I was only 150 lbs. and have always found it difficult to find a perfect bed and unfortunately this wasn't the one either. My current bed outside testing the Emma mattress does a really good job but doesn't have the soft comfort layer that I would prefer. Upon sitting down on the mattress for the first time I noticed right away that the mattress was really soft. After laying down on my back I could really feel how comfortable the layers of foam were and really did surprise me. I was thinking that maybe this mattress really had a great shot but only time could tell. After finishing up my evening routine and preparing to get some sleep I usually rearrange a couple things and turn onto my side as I am more of a side sleeper. This is when the wonderfully comfortable mattress showed me its weakness. When laying on my back my weight was fairly spread out and seemed to be well supported but when I turned on my side the weight shifted to less points and really compressed the foam layers, I would say at least to 25% of its original thickness. To me it sort of felt like my hips and shoulders were almost on the box spring. this may sound a bit strange but although I sunk right into the mattress it was still comfortable.
After testing the mattress for numerous nights sleep, I did get more acquainted with the mattress and found different positions really helped. This was the first bed in a box I've ever used so I knew a lot would be different in comparison to a spring type mattress.
A few great pros it has going for it are, I really found that for an all-foam mattress I was quite surprised with the edge support it has. quite often I roll over towards the edge and I don't realize that I'm on the edge of the mattress. Another amazing thing I love is that the cover is removable and washable. We normally had to pull out our upholstery cleaner to clean our mattress, now all we need to do is remover the cover and toss it in the washing machine to clean it. Also, we find that the mattress is great at minimizing transfer of movement from one side of the bed to the other. It also has a great 200-night money back guarantee if you have any reason the bed just wont work for you.
There really aren't to many cons, mainly the one I already spoke about, with that being that the bed really isn't the greatest for larger individuals. that leads into my 2nd item being that from my research you really don't have options to customize or choose from different options to fit your needs. It's more of a one style fits most kind of mattress.
This really leaves me at the point where I would or wouldn't recommend this mattress. There is one small but very significant factor that gives me the pleasure to say I would recommend this mattress and that is the 200-night money back guarantee. The Emma mattress really is a great comfortable mattress that could benefit to having a couple variations to its line of mattresses but even if you’re on the fence whether its the right one for you, you have the option of returning it for a full refund.
Thanks, and I hope you get a restful sleep.
