Emma’s mattress is medium-firm, which makes it a great fit for most sleepers

Emma’s mattress is medium-firm, which makes it a great fit for most sleepers. It’s also a great option for couples who share the bed because it isolates motion well. This means that your partner’s tosses and turns won’t wake you up in the middle of the night.

The Emma’s comfort layer is made from 5cm of “Airgocell” foam. This is a proprietary foam that has more air in it than traditional memory foam, making it bouncy and less contouring. It also promotes airflow and helps to keep the mattress cool.

This foam is also infused with ParticleCool, a technology Emma comfort mattress review that’s designed to disperse heat more quickly than traditional memory foam. Combined with the Airgocell layer, this allows the mattress to stay cooler than many other boxed mattresses. If you sleep hot or prefer the cooler feel of a hybrid mattress, however, this may not be your ideal option.

We like the fact that Emma has a 100-night trial with no minimum return period. However, some customers have complained that the company takes too long to collect unwanted mattresses and process refunds. Others have reported that they were only offered partial or full refunds for their Emma mattress.

If you’re shopping for a new mattress online, it’s important to consider not just firmness but how the mattress performs in different sleeping positions and with varying weights. For example, back sleepers need a good amount of support to align their spines and relieve pressure on their hips and shoulders. While the Emma has a moderate amount of body contouring, its upper and lower polyfoam layers are zoned to support back sleepers of all weights.

Side sleepers will also find the Emma to be comfortable. This is because the mattress supports all sleep positions and has a solid edge support, which helps prevent significant sagging around the edges of the mattress. The edge support is especially important for heavier sleepers who might want to avoid sinking too deeply near the edges of the mattress.

While the Emma’s top memory foam layer did a good job of reducing pressure points, it didn’t do as well with limiting motion transfer. This could be problematic for light sleepers who may be woken up by their partner’s shifting movements throughout the night. For this reason, we recommend looking into a hybrid mattress with stronger edge support if you’re a heavy sleeper or plan to share your bed with a partner.

As a bonus, the Emma’s cover is machine-washable, so you can keep it clean and fresh for years to come. Additionally, the cover has handles on the side and traction elements on the underside to help you easily move the mattress around.
