Emma Comfort Mattress Review

In this Emma Comfort mattress review, I will talk about the latest release from the German maker that has just arrived in Australia. After seeing great success with the Emma Original mattress, they decided to release two more mattresses. The first one is the Emma Diamond Hybrid mattress and the second one is the Emma Comfort.

When designing it, they wanted to create a memory foam mattress that is affordable and it’s good for all sleeping positions. For this reason, they chose excellent foams but we will talk about this later. The Emma Comfort is designed and built in Germany so you should expect a high-quality mattress. Mine arrived almost a week ago so it’s a good time now to move to the full review below.

Who is the Emma Comfort mattress suitable for?

  • Combo sleepers who change positions during the night.
  • Couples that need a mattress with minimal motion transfer.
  • Aussies that are looking for a cooling mattress.
  • Chronic back pain sufferers.

What is an Emma Comfort mattress made of?

This mattress is made of 2 layers plus the cover. In detail, these are:

  • An Airgocell foam layer that is designed to stay cool during the night. It’s a fantastic material that has pressure-relieving properties and it’s ideal for those with a bad back.
  • An HRX foam layer that is there to provide your body with the needed support. This layer has zoned cuts that help with better weight distribution and spine alignment.

The mattress measures 25cm in height and the picture below shows how each layer is positioned.

What is the cover made of?

The cover of this mattress is made of polyester but they also added 1% elastane to improve the fit. They wanted a material that is breathable and that it’s easy to clean so polyester was an easy choice. In addition, it’s a material that is very durable so you can expect your cover to last for a long time. The design of the cover is a modern one featuring a white top and a grey bottom part. On the sides, they have added 4 handles that are useful when you want to move your mattress around. If you want to clean it, you can use your washing machine at 30 degrees. Overall, this is a high-quality cover and Emma did a great job here.

How firm is the Emma Comfort mattress?

Let’s continue now with this Emma Comfort mattress review and talk about its feel. This is a medium mattress and it’s designed to suit every sleeper. If I use my virtual scale here, I would say it’s a 5 with 10 being really firm. I will now talk about the different sleeping positions and how this mattress performed.

Starting from the back position, the foam layers did a good job moulding around my body. I was comfortable in this position and pressure relief was great. The zoned system supported my body well and managed to distribute my weight evenly.

If you look for a new bed frame, the Emma range has a number of choices for every need!

Turning to the side position, sinkage increased and that helped my spine to align properly. I didn’t have any discomfort in the hip area and I was comfortable in this position. Pressure relief remained good which is rare with this type of mattress.

Finally, moving to the stomach position, the mattress was firm enough to support my hips and shoulders. I enjoyed sleeping this way and overall, this is a mattress that is good for all sleeping positions. This is impressive, especially if we consider the price here.

Another thing that is great about the Emma Comfort is the lack of motion transfer so it’s a good choice for couples. On the other hand, the edge support is average but still quite good for a foam-only mattress like this one.

Will this mattress sleep cool?

This mattress is made with Airgocell foam which is a very breathable material. It also has the ability to regulate temperature during the night so you can sleep comfortably. Despite being a foam-only mattress, the right choice of materials and cover allows it to stay cool during the night. I have slept many times on my Emma Comfort mattress during the summer and I never felt too hot. As a result, this is definitely a mattress that I can recommend to hot sleepers.

What type of bed can I use with this mattress?

The Emma Comfort is a versatile mattress so you don’t need a special set-up to use it. You can even use your floor but this is something I wouldn’t advise you to do. I personally use a slatted frame that allows airflow and it’s more hygienic. If you prefer a bed with storage, the people at Emma have developed the Emma Storage bed which is a great choice.

Is this a rolled mattress?

All Emma mattresses are delivered inside a carton box so if you get yours, you should prepare to unpack it and let it decompress. When you buy one, you will get free delivery which takes between 1-10 working days. That, of course, depends on your postcode and if you live in the Metro area you should expect it within 3-5 working days. The delivery process was straightforward and the courier was prompt and polite. Overall, they offer a great service here so no complaints at all.

Does the Emma Comfort come with a trial period?

If you decide to buy an Emma mattress, you will get a 100-night trial period that gives you more than 3 months to try this mattress. If you are not happy with it for any reason, you can return it and get a full refund. I have to mention here that you don’t need to keep the original packaging to be able to return your mattress. In addition, you will get a 10-year warranty that will cover you for a long time. This is a great package here and Emma shows how much they value their customers.

How much will it cost me?

The Emma Comfort mattress is quite affordable and it’s available in 5 sizes. The smaller (Single) costs $1,079 with the bigger (King) selling for $1,699. However, I should mention here that Emma runs frequent promotions so you won’t have to pay the retail price. For example, at the moment of writing, there was a 30% off promotion. The table below has pricing information for all available sizes.

Single92 x 188 x 25cm$1,079
King Single107 x 203 x 25cm$1,179
Double138 x 188 x 25cm$1,399
Queen153 x 203 x 25cm$1,499
King183 x 203 x 25cm$1,699

Should I buy the Emma Comfort mattress?

The time has come now to complete this Emma Comfort mattress review and share my final thoughts with you. In my opinion, this mattress would be ideal for those looking for:

  • A memory foam mattress that is good for all sleeping positions.
  • A mattress made in Germany with high-quality materials.
  • An affordable mattress that is great for couples.

If you look for all these, the Emma Comfort should be an option to consider. It’s a well-balanced mattress that has a great cooling system and it comes with fantastic service and support. In my view, it’s a great addition to the Emma range and probably the best value-for-money option in Australia.

Alternatives to consider

Another mattress that follows the same philosophy is the Koala mattress. This is a foam-only option that is well-balanced and can help you alleviate back pain. When compared to the Emma Comfort, the Koala mattress has adjustable firmness and this is definitely an advantage over it. It’s made with KloudCell foam that can minimize motion transfer so you and your partner can sleep with no disturbance. Unfortunately, this is a more expensive option and this is something you should consider. The good news is that the people at Koala offer a great service so you should expect free delivery, a 120-night trial period and a 10-year warranty.

If on the other hand, you want a hybrid alternative I have you covered. The Origin Hybrid mattress is a great all-rounder that won’t cost you much. Built with HexaGrid technology it can alleviate back pain and provide your body with pressure relief. Moreover, the Antigravity springs can distribute weight evenly and provide you with tailored support. Other than that, the Origin Hybrid features a breathable tencel cover that sleeps cool. Inside it, the bamboo-infused memory foam and the Australian wool do a fantastic job and this mattress is designed for the Aussie climate. Add a fantastic support package and you have a very lucrative option here.
