Eve Mattress Review
Our Eve mattress review highlights this mattress from a UK based mattress company that has been very successful overseas selling hybrid Bed-in-A-Box mattresses. They claim to have sold tens of thousands of mattresses in Europe as well as the U.S.
They call it the “world’s most comfortable mattress” and claim that is sleeps cooler than most with their cooling technology. This is our review of their newest model that they just released which promises to be more comfortable and cooler.
Read our review of the Eve Mattress and find out what we think of it after sleeping on it and testing it personally!
Construction and Materials
The Eve Mattress is a 10″ thick memory foam model with a reasonably thick 3″ top comfort layer and a 7″ high density support foam base foundation.
Eve has replaced the latex layer that competing mattresses such as Casper or Leesa use with a layer of next generation memory foam that is designed to provide comfort and responsiveness.
- 2″ Top cooling & comfort layer – This layer is made of 2″ of responsive memory foam, which is designed to provide contour to the body as well as provide pressure relief and provide for responsiveness and bounce so that you can move around during the night.
- 1″ Active response layer – This layer is made of 1″ of responsive foam designed to provide airflow and helps with heat dissipation and to provide cooling.
- 7″ Bottom foundation layer – This layer is made of 7″ layer of high density support foam and essentially acts as the foundation for the above foam layers.
The Eve has a basic washable cover with a striking yellow and white design that is unique and very eye-catching. They redid their cover and made it more comfortable using 2-way stretch polyester which allows it to be breathable and tough at the same time.
Firmness & Support
The Eve is designed to appeal to a large number of sleepers with the universal comfort firmness option, which works well in some cases but not necessarily for everyone as this is generally impossible to do. The mattress does its best to pull this off but may not appeal to everyone.
The mattress feels firmer than many competing mattresses in this category, which is a good comparison to their previous model we reviewed which was much too soft. We felt it was around a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being firmest). The combination of foam layers provides responsiveness and support to the mattress.
The top comfort layer with the next generation memory foam provides some pushback and prevents you from sinking into foam, while the foam beneath it then adapts to your weight and contours to the body.
As a heavier sleeper, at 230lbs, I felt the Eve was just right for my taste. Normally, my weight sinks through the comfort layers and I feel the denser and firmer support layer for the most part. The new iteration of the Eve Mattress prevents this however, and supports my body quite well.
Kaye did not sink down as much through the layers and felt the mattress was much softer than the previous version we tested.
Support was much better with this model, with the 3″ comfort layer doing a good job at supporting my heavier weight and not preventing me from bottoming out.
I felt some minor pressure points in my shoulders when sleeping on my side due to compressing the comfort layers and coming to rest on the lower support foam layer but it wasn’t enough to keep me from falling asleep.
Kaye likes firm mattresses and felt the top layer was comfortable and supportive and did not bottom out when sitting up like the previous model.
Again, universal comfort is not for everyone and especially couples with different firmness preferences. However the Eve does a good job at balancing different sleep preferences with this version of their mattress quite well. This is often an issue with mattresses of this type and thickness, however, which tends to happen with my heavier weight.
The Eve has a very soft and comfortable exterior and when you lie down on it the foam layers work together to provide a balanced feel in most sleeping positions. As the top layer is a more responsive type of foam, it doesn’t hug or envelop you into foam like all memory foam mattresses, but this is by design.
The cover provides a very enjoyable feel through the sheets, and the mattress adapted to our bodies as time went on. As a side sleeper, I felt less discomfort from the firmness of the mattress than before. Kaye did not experience the same due to her lighter weight.
The Eve Mattress did not sleep too hot for us, which as a couple is a very important consideration. The thin breathable cover combined with the 3″ of cooling foam did a decent job of keeping heat from being trapped beneath your body and the mattress.
There was no noticeable heat buildup or stickiness that is a common complaint with many memory foam mattresses historically.
Sinkage and Motion Transfer
Sinkage is very dependent on your weight. Many memory foam and hybrid mattresses suffer from sinkage while sitting near the edge but less so when lying down. The Eve mattress does a very good job in this area, as the bed did not compress down like the previous model did all the way down to my bed frame when sitting on the edge. So high marks with the new model.
When sitting up in the bed, I did not feel the bottom of the bed THROUGH the support which was very encouraging. Given that I am a large individual (230lbs.) that is understandable, but not when competing mattresses can handle this weight and not deliver the same results.
Again, however, Kaye did not experience the same sinkage with her lighter weight, so it may be more of weight limitation with the Eve than anything specific to the mattress.
As for motion transfer, Kaye and I experienced much less motion transfer. There was some sinkage towards me by Kaye or “rolling in” to my heavier side which has been a problem with many memory foam mattresses for us, but this model was much better.
The responsiveness of the top comfort layer did focus movement in a small area and did not transmit it through the entire bed when one of us got in or out of the bed, which was great.
Smell / Off-Gassing
Well, the Eve USED to have a big problem in this area. This bed had SIGNIFICANTLY less off-gassing and odor than the last model, which was so bad we we had to put it outside our balcony for over a week just so it did not smell up our house. This new version of the Eve mattress we did not have that problem.
Eve Mattress provides many of the same type customer service aspects as many other online “Bed in A Box” mattress retailers. This includes:

The Eve is fairly priced for the quality it delivers. In fact, they just lowered their prices to make it extremely affordable. At $449 for a queen it is a great value compared to similar mattresses in its category.
The new Eve Mattress does a great job at providing a universal comfort mattress at a low price with good materials and a unique design compared to similar mattresses in the space. By focusing towards the firmer side but utilizing materials that soften up as the body adapts to them, the Eve appeals to a wide number of sleepers.
The 10″ mattress provides adequate comfort and support and is a great choice for couples such as us with rather unequal weight distribution which with the previous model caused a high degree of sinkage and motion transfer, but their new model solved all his. Again, for most sleepers this will be less of an issue, or for couples that don’t have a significant weight difference.
All in all, the Eve mattress is an attractively designed mattress with a unique yellow and white cover that does a decent job for both individual sleepers and couples in general. Their new design solced many of the past issues and impressed us quite a bit which is why we we wrote this review.
