Construction and Materials
The CouchBed is a 10″ memory foam mattress made up of 2 layers:
- Top Comfort Layer – This layer is made of softer memory foam infused with phase-change cooling gel. It has a slow response to pressure and allows you to sink into it to a certain degree for a perfect contouring and pressure relief. It helps regulate temperature to keep you cool and comfortable.
- Support Layer – This layer is made of a ultra-dense memory foam that acts both as a support and foundation layer and provides deep compression support for your body to keep your spine properly aligned.
The cover of this mattress is smooth and pleasant to the touch. It is made of a breathable material and allows greater airflow through the mattress and aids in cooling.
The cover is also “hinged” which means that you can either lay the bed flat or fold it back to create a couch. The hinge is very durable, so you won’t have to worry whether it will tear.
There is also a zipper which allows you to unzip the fabric and clean it, although it is recommended that you spot clean the cover instead of washing it.
Currently they have five colors to choose from: Limestone, Blue, Coffee, Charcoal, Red and Black.
Firmness & Support
The CouchBed only comes in one firmness option and we rate it around a 7,5 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
It falls more on the firmer end of the spectrum but this is to be expected as it also needs to function as a couch. It provides excellent support both as a couch and as a regular mattress.
Although it’s more on the firmer side, it features a softer memory foam layer on top which has as a slow response to pressure and allows you to sink into it to a certain degree for a perfect contouring and pressure relief.
With many mattresses, since I am a heavier sleeper, I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel more of the support layers which are often harder and not as comfortable.
However, this wasn’t the case with the CouchBed mattress. The soft top comfort layer allowed me to sink into the mattress to a certain degree, but the firmer support layer below, lifted my heavy body weight with ease and prevented me from sinking all the way down through the mattress and bottoming out which is often the case with lower quality 10″ all foam mattresses.
It also didn’t cause me to feel trapped in foam that those low-quality all foam mattresses can cause.
A nice thick support and base layer made of the ultra-dense 100% CentiPur certified memory foam combined with the somewhat softer top layer provided excellent support for all sleeping positions. It lifted my heavy weight and our combined weights as a couple with ease and distributed them evenly across the bed.
We are primarily side sleepers and we like beds that have enough give in the top comfort layer to cradle our shoulders and hips and relieve pressure points, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomach or back.
This bed has everything. It cradled our shoulders and hips to prevent the appearance of pressure points, but it also had enough firmness when we switched to our back or stomach. It kept our spines properly aligned and we didn’t feel any discomfort or pain.
Being made entirely of memory foam, the CouchBed is quite comfortable. It has a softer top comfort layer with phase-change cooling gel that allows you to sink into it to a certain degree to cushion and contour the body during sleep for perfect pressure relief.
The cover of the CouchBed is very soft and comfortable too, and together with the top comfort layer, it does a good job of providing a comfortable sleeping surface.
The softness of the cover combined with the initial soft response from the memory foam made for a comfortable night’s sleep and this was shared by both of us.
The softer gel infused memory foam on top will allow your body to sink into it for perfect pressure relief, but it won’t make you feel stuck in foam as it also has some responsiveness and together with the firm and dense base and support layer below it will allow you to change positions and get in and out of bed easily during the night.
The CouchBed sleeps pretty cool due to the use of the phase-change cooling gel that helps regulate body temperature and prevents the build-up of excessive body heat.
The mattress also features a highly breathable cover that allows the air to circulate freely through the mattress and aid in cooling.
Besides this, the CouchBed does not cause that sticky sweaty feeling that most mattresses made entirely of memory foam are known to cause. It did not cause us to wake up hot and sweaty and helped us remain cool and dry throughout the whole night.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
As for sinkage and motion transfer, there was not too much sinkage and motion transfer with this mattress.
As we always tend to mention, both sinkage and motion transfer are largely weight dependent, and as I weigh considerably more than Kaye, around 230 lbs, I tend to sink a lot more into the mattress when sitting upright in bed or on the edge than she does.
With many lower quality 10″ all foam mattresses I quickly sink down through the mattress and come to rest on the foundation of our bed, but this was not the case with the CouchBed mattress.
I compressed a bit the softer top comfort layer, but the firm base and support layer made of ultra-dense memory foam prevented me from sinking further into the mattress and feel trapped in foam.
It lifted my heavy body weight and our combined weights as a couple with ease and distributed them evenly across the bed.
Edge support good with this mattress too. The high density foam did not compress too much under my weight when sitting or lying near the edges and we did not experience any “rolling off” the bed sensation.
As for motion transfer, there is almost no motion transfer with this bed as it is made entirely of memory foam that minimizes the amount of motion transfer to a large degree and prevents sleep disruption.
As couples sharing a mattress, motion transfer and sinkage is an important criteria we take into consideration when evaluating mattresses. Neither one of us likes to be “bounced” off the mattress when getting in or out of bed, nor do we like feeling the sensation of Kaye “rolling into” a hole that some foam mattresses cause to be created.
Smell / Off-Gassing
As for smell/off-gassing, there was some amount of it due the memory foam construction of this mattress and the fact that it comes tightly compressed and shipped in a plastic package.
Some memory foam mattresses that are shipped compressed in a box suffer from the bad “off-gassing” odor due to the chemicals in the foam being trapped in the packaging and when unwrapped, getting released into the air and causing a bad smell.
But, it was nothing too serious with the Couchbed and any smell that was present quickly dissipated (within a few hours) as the mattress expanded and regained its shape.
