Suissly Mattress Review
This Suissly mattress review highlights the latex and foam hybrid mattress that Suissly offers along with 3 other firmness options. The company created multiple mattress configurations by combining different materials including foam, latex, and pocketed coils to create soft, medium, and firm models.
We tested the Firm option in this review, which is composed of memory foam and latex foam layers
Read our Suissly mattress review to see our experience with these innovative new mattresses that are looking to make an impact on the online mattress market.
Construction and Materials
The Suissly Firm mattress is a 10″ latex foam, memory foam foam and base foam mattress made up of 3 layers.
- 1.5″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 1.5″ of natural latex that provides comfort and a responsive sleeping surface.
- 1.5″ Transition and Contour Layer – This layer is 1.5″ of memory foam which provides transitional support and works with the top comfort layer to providing contour and body hug.
- 7″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 7″ of high density base foam that provides support for the mattress as well as deep compression support for the body.
The cover of the Suissly mattress is made up of a viscose blend which is quite soft and assists with breathability and cooling, as well as wicking away moisture.
Firmness & Support
In terms of firmness, we would rate the Suissly Firm mattress as around a 6-7 on the firmness scale (10 being firmest).
Overall, the Suissly Firm has a firmer feel which is to be expected from a latex and foam hybrid mattress, which tend to provide more of an “uplifting” sensation compared to memory foam.
The latex top layer provides a high degree of responsiveness and bounce to the mattress, with the underlying memory foam layer providing additional support and body contour.
This latex and memory foam hybrid design does a good job at providing support for your body and providing that response and pushback that is to be expected from a latex hybrid mattress.
I was a bit surprised that a 10″ mattress would be supportive of my heavier 230 weight as the Suissly does, when most mattresses that are this depth usually bottom out or compress quite significantly under my weight.
Kaye doesn’t have this problem, as she weighs half what I do, so it was nice to have a mattress that provides us both with support for our respective body weights.
The Suissly mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions. As we are primarily side sleepers, we like mattresses that provide enough give in the top comfort layer to support our shoulders and hips, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomachs and backs.
Often latex hybrid mattresses don’t provide enough “give” to support my larger frame and I end up with numb arms at time when sleeping on my side.
This was not the case with the Suissly, however, as the combination of memory foam and latex work well together to support your body during the night in all sleeping positions.
The latex and foam top layers made the Suissly mattress soft enough to cradle our bodies while providing enough pushback and response that makes changing sleeping positions easy during the night.
While generally we prefer the hug and contour of memory foam over latex, this is an individual preference. The Suissly initially felt on the firm side to us, (as to be expected for the Firm model!), but after sleeping on both models for a few weeks softened up and molded to our bodies quite well.
The latex in the top comfort layer and and memory foam in the transition layer of the Suissly mattress both do a great job of providing a very comfortable sleeping surface.
The underlying support foam and memory foam transition layers support my weight very well, as well as and our combined weight as a couple sleeping on the mattress.
The combination of latex and foam layers make the Suissly mattress both very supportive as well as being a very comfortable mattress.
The Suissly does a great job at sleeping cool due to the materials used in the mattress. The latex foam layer and the breathable quilted soft top cover work well together to minimize heat retention when sleeping.
We didn’t really feel any noticeable heat buildup or get the common sweaty feeling that some memory foam mattresses tend to cause, which is a good thing for us sharing a bed!
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Suissly mattress also does a good job with sinkage and motion transfer, although there was some to a degree.
As we always preach, sinkage (and motion transfer) is largely weight dependent and plays a big part in how mattresses respond to both my individual and our combined weight.
The fact that I weigh around 230lbs tends to have a rather large bearing on the degree of sinkage I experience when sitting and lying on a mattress.
Kaye, who is half my weight, experiences much less sinkage than I do, but again this is to be expected due to her much lighter weight.
During our Suissly mattress review, I sank down through the comfort layers when I sat near the edge and when sitting upright on the mattress, which is normal given my larger weight and frame.
I did not “bottom out” when sitting on the Suissly mattress, however, like I have with other mattresses which was a welcomed surprise.
Edge support good with the PangeaBed, consistent with other latex hybrid mattresses we have reviewed. I slept near the edge at time to test this and did not experience any of the “rolling off” the edges, nor did I experience much edge compression when sitting on the edge due to my weight.
Motion transfer on the Suissly was about the same as most latex hybrid mattresses, and did not cause us to feel each other’s movement during the night too much.
Latex hybrids such as the Suissly Firm tend to cause more motion transfer than usual in many cases due to the responsiveness of the latex used.
For the most part, however, neither Kaye nor myself felt very much disruption in our sleep or shaking of the Suissly mattress when each other changed positions or got in or out of bed during the night.
Smell / Off-Gassing
During our initial review period of the Suissly mattress we noticed a small amount of smell upon opening the boxes.
This is primarily due to the fact that it is only partly foam and to a large degree latex, which doesn’t smell nearly as much as all-foam mattresses. There was an average amount of off-gassing which took a day or two to dissipate.

Suissly created a range of mattresses depending on firmness preference using a variety of materials. The Suissly Firm mattress we reviewed did a good job of delivering a firmer feel while at the same time being comfortable and supportive.
The high quality latex and memory foam used in the Suissly Firm do a great job at providing a comfortable nights sleep without feeling trapped or stuck like some memory foam mattresses often do.
The Suissly mattress provides good support for all sleeping positions, and is quite comfortable. The mattress does a good job at supporting heavier sleepers and doesn’t compress too much or cause excess sinkage for sleepers.
The Suissly Firm mattress sleeps cool and is a good choice for couples sharing a mattress as well, even with the moderate motion transfer that is caused by the latex construction.
All in all, the Suissly mattress is a very comfortable and flexible mattress that should appeal to a wide variety of sleepers. We hope our Suissly mattress review helps you make a decision on whether this mattress is the right choice for you!
