It is certainly most important to know the general characteristics of Eve memory foam mattress and that is why we will start this part of our review with thickness and number of layers. Then we will focus on the foam layers that are most important for the performance of this mattress, and then we will talk about the firmness level, cover and trial period, as well as about delivery.
You may be confused by the fact that on the Eve website you will find opposed information about thickness, but we measured the mattress and it is definitely 24 cm thick and not 25 cm. This is the average thickness of the mattress in general, and more than enough for an all-foam mattress, because such mattresses can have good performance even if they are thinner compared to hybrid, for example.
There are a total of 5 layers, of which three are three foam layers which we will talk about in the next paragraph. The other two layers are at the bottom and top. The closest to you is the cover, to which we will also dedicate separate paragraph, and at the bottom is the anti-slip base, a special layer implemented to make sure your mattress is always perfectly stable and does not move during the night.
Below the cover you will find the Evecomfort foam layer, in the middle is the memory layer and at the bottom the base layer, which is the thickest of all three layers. Next to the Evecomfort layer you will see the registered trademark symbol, so that layer is the heart and soul of this mattress. This layer is so supportive, but also breathability is significantly improved compared to traditional memory foam.
The middle memory foam layer is there for the pressure relief, which will make side sleepers especially happy, and also affects motion isolation. The base layer, sometimes called springy foam, is even more important for motion isolation, but also for the firmness of this mattress. The base layer has seven unique contour zones, to be adapted to different parts of the body. Base layer is the densest, due to durability.
The firmness and support of this mattress are very cleverly designed. Layers are of different firmness and then together they give a medium firm feel and supportive mattress that is good for different sleep positions.
It is very comfortable for back sleepers, as well as for side sleepers because it allows them to sink enough to achieve a neutral spinal position and avoid pain in the shoulder and hip at the same time. Also, it is supportive and firm enough for all stomach sleepers of average body weight, so you won’t put too much pressure on your back.
We really liked the cover for many reasons. First, the cover is very comfortable and pleasant to the skin. It is made of a combination of polyester and elastane, where polyester is 98% and elastane 2%. The combination of these materials gives you moisture-wicking and highly breathable top cover on which it is comfortable to sleep even without bedding.
Also, the cover is removable and machine washable, so if you want to use it without bedding, you can do it, because you will wash it easily and simply, so that you always have a perfectly clean sleep surface. After you unzip it, wash it at 40 degrees C and then hand dry it, because it is not suitable for tumble dry.
Eve is the first UK sleep company which introduced 1-year trial, risk-free, and after one year, you can return it if it doesn’t suit you. Of course, this is more than enough time and after a month or two you will know whether it is the right mattress for you or not. It takes the body on average 3 to 4 weeks to adapt to a new mattress.
Eve is also proud of its delivery service, as they deliver the mattress to you completely free and in a jiffy.
Eve Original mattress is 24 cm thick, all-foam mattress. It is a medium firm and very supportive, which in general makes it comfortable for all three sleep positions – side, back and front. However, it is a bit better for side and back sleepers than for front sleepers, which is the case with most all-foam mattresses. Unlike many other all-foam mattresses that are way too soft for front sleepers, this one is not too soft and it is supportive enough even for that sleeping position. Since it has such characteristics, we really recommend it to combination sleepers. It consists of a total of 5 layers, of which three are foam layers plus cover and anti-slip base.
The cover is removable and machine washable, and since the mattress is overall hypoallergenic, this is a great choice for allergy sufferers. You have the whole year at your disposal to make sure of the comfort and quality of this mattress, which makes buying it completely risk-free. It comes with a 10-year warranty.
Eve Original mattress has numerous features that make it better than some other similar ones. We would definitely single out the support which is great and also very adaptable. That is reflected in the fact that the manufacturer recommends it to everyone, no matter what is your preferred sleep position.
Side sleepers will feel pressure relief. Partners will not wake each other while moving in bed thanks to great motion isolation. Removable cover is breathable and machine washable, which is one more great advantage of this product. We have to once again mention the 10-year warranty and 1-year risk-free trial. Both are much better than the industry average.
Deliver, Remove & Recycle service is very useful, so if you have an old mattress, we recommend that you choose this service at checkout. Two sizes and two color combinations are available, so you should choose that when ordering.
The mattress was delivered to us very quickly and free of charge. We immediately unpacked it carefully and left it for 2 days to completely regain its full size. That is something you should do with every bed in a box. We also let the characteristic chemical odour disappear, that present in all memory foam products.
box. And we let the characteristic chemical odour disappear, that present in all memory foam products.
We used that time to check the craftsmanship and to conduct two tests – durability test and maintenance test. The durability test is actually a series of tests that includes a roller test, and during the maintenance test, we removed the cover and washed it to make sure it won’t shrink.
After all that, we started a multi-week testing, where our team tested it in detail and checked all the characteristics. Numerous overnight tests included checking support in different sleep positions, breathability, motion isolation and everything else we conveyed to you in this review.
