I’m sure you’ll agree that choosing a mattress for your bed is a tough gig. Especially if you’re on a budget, and especially when there are so many varieties on the market. Well, in this post I’ve road tested the Ecosa memory foam mattress for you. If you’re looking to check out how it compares to the Koala and Ergoflex mattresses, this post has you covered. But for my dedicated report on the Ecosa Mattress… let’s get into it below!
Road Test: The Ecosa Memory Foam Mattress
When a mattress in a box turned up at my front door, it was as though Christmas had come early (and Santa clearly couldn’t fit the gift down the chimney).
The memory foam marvel inside the box came courtesy of new kid on the block, Ecosa. And let me tell you, they certainly get points for packaging and delivery; the Ecosa mattress comes delivered in the box you see above with wheels and a handle on it, so you can wheel it into your bedroom and let the unravelling begin.
I wheeled the bad boy into my room to explore it a little further and start road testing it. This post will give you the lowdown on getting it out, getting it onto the bed and sleeping on it over the last few nights.
Ecosa Mattress: Easy to get out, quick to expand
Once out of the box, the Ecosa memory foam mattress begins to expand. Not at a rapid pace, of course (it’s not a race against the clock to get it on the bed or anything), but you’ll notice it start to unroll. It comes with a blade so you can cut it out of its vacuum-seal packaging, and the process of getting it onto the bed was done in minutes. Take care though, you don’t want to knick the mattress itself.
Presentation points aside, a mattress is all about the comfort level, right? And if it’s going to give you a good night’s sleep. I decided to give it a go over a few nights so I could provide you with a well-rounded review, and here’s the truth.
It is firm, to begin with. It features three layers of foam construction as well as a layer of latex foam and high-density memory foam. But despite feeling firm when you first lay on it, it actually gets comfortable pretty quickly. The top layer feels quite breathable and it’s really soft, so once your fitted sheet is over it, it becomes pretty divine to lay on.
I’d definitely call it a firm mattress. It’s not a bucket of feathers, but I think the firmness actually helps support your back as you sleep. That’s how it felt for me, anyway. It’s designed to support your shoulder and the hip area too, without pushing against pressure points. And it conforms to your body, so there’s definitely a lot of work gone into the design.
You can see from the pics in the post that the mattress is pretty thick too, and the removable cover allows you to clean it easily. I haven’t given that part a go yet, but I think it’s a great feature.
There’s also a 100-day return policy on the Ecosa memory foam mattress, so you can give it a pretty decent road test and decide what to do with it from there.
I’m personally pretty pleased so far. I had been having neck problems of late so I’m looking forward to seeing if this mattress helps with that.
This Ecosa mattress ended up being a little too firm for everyday use for me. It now lives in our spare room and when guests stay it gets mixed reviews. Some people have said it’s the best night’s sleep they’ve had in ages, others have politely said their sleep was “fine”. So, my advice would be to try it out and use the return period if you need it.
