We reckon side sleepers and back sleepers will enjoy the firm, supportive feel of the Eva mattress. Thanks to its minimal partner disturbance, it’s ideal for people who share a bed. Its breathability and coolness impressed us too, so it’s great for hot sleepers.
Any type of sleeper who’s after a supportive, cradling night’s sleep might appreciate the Emma Comfort - especially if you prefer a firmer mattress. With its great ability to minimise partner disturbance, it’s ideal for co-sleepers.
We reckon so. We rate its great combination of quality materials. As a hybrid mattress, it’s packing latex, gel memory foam and pocket springs. This trio gives great support and comfort and reduces partner disturbance. It also helps keep the Eva mattress cool and breathable. Which - as anyone who’s ever sweated through a hot Aussie night knows - is super important.
Add to this quick delivery, wheels on the box to easily move it around, handles to easily turn it and a medium-soft feel, and you’ve got one of the best value mattresses we’ve ever slept on.
- Hybrid construction that makes it oh-so-comfortable and supportive.
- Super-breathable and cool thanks to the pocket springs that allow air to circulate.
- Minimal partner disturbance.
- Longer than standard trial period and warranty.
- Transparency around their manufacturers.
- The metres and metres of soft plastic that Eva vacuum-seals mattresses in.
- Tendency to feel a little like you’re rolling into the middle.
- Heavy, with a queen weighing 55kg.
Thousands (literally) of Aussie sleepers reckon the Emma Comfort mattress is a very good mattress. Even CHOICE, Australia’s leading consumer advocacy group, named it as their top scoring mattress for 2021. This all-foam mattress is supportive and pressure relieving for all sleepers and sleeping positions, although some sleepers do find it very firm.
From our personal experience, we feel the Emma Comfort mattress is one of the best budget mattress buys on the market, just bear in mind it suits sleepers who like it firm.
- The removable, washable cover which is the only one we’ve found.
- It’s pretty light for a mattress in a box so it's easy to move.
- The lack of partner disturbance.
- Some sleepers (including Daniel, our tester) found it very firm (and borderline hard).
- The buying process isn’t the most streamlined.
The Eva mattress is a hybrid mattress, which means it’s got both foam and pocket springs. Its 4 layers consist of:
- Gel memory foam for cooling and pressure relief.
- Latex foam for breathability and support.
- High density foam for firmness.
- 5 zone pocket springs to minimise partner disturbance. Plus extra springs along the side pockets gives edge support so you don’t slip off when putting your socks on.
The foam Emma Comfort mattress has 2 layers:
- A layer of Airgocell foam which is intended to minimise partner disturbance and is also moisture wicking to keep you cool and dry all night long.
- A layer of supportive HRX foam to help your hips, shoulders and spine stay in their correct alignment. It’s also breathable to promote good airflow.
The Emma Comfort mattress has a removable and washable cover that’s 99% polyester and 1% elastane. It’s also got a side cover (100% polyester) and a bottom cover (87% polyester and 13% polypropylene).
Emma seems less bothered about environmental concerns than other brands, with information tucked away in the ‘quality mark’ accordion. There we found that every layer complies with OEKO-TEX® Standard 10 which means it’s free of harmful substances.
The Eva mattress comes with a whopping standard free trial of 365 nights. Shipping is fairly standard too, with next-day metro delivery. Non-metro areas will take between 1-8 business days. Wherever you are in Australia, shipping is free.
Oh, and they’ll only deliver to your door, not inside your home. If you live in an apartment complex or have lots of stairs, you might want to rope someone in to help.
The Eva mattress warranty is better than standard (10 years). Instead, it comes with a 12-year warranty. Which is even more impressive when you consider you’re paying less than a grand for even the largest size.
Emma offers you 100 nights to try the Comfort in your home. They do ask that you try it for at least 3-4 weeks before deciding if it’s right for you. If it’s not, simply email them to arrange a free pick-up - as long as you live within their delivery area. If you’re outside these areas (not listed on their website), you’ll need to take it to your nearest drop off location. Once it’s been picked up (or dropped off), Emma will refund you within 14 days.
You need to wrap it in its original plastic packaging ready for collection and it needs to be free from mould, dirt, stains, smells and bed bugs.
The Emma Comfort comes with a 10-year warranty that covers sags or dips that are greater than 2.5cm, cracks or hollows in the foam, a mattress that doesn't fully inflate within 2 weeks, and damage to the cover (but not normal wear and tear). To claim under the warranty, you need to email Emma with photos of the problem.
Shipping is free, Australia-wide. If you live in metro areas (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide) and order before 10am on a weekday, you should get it between 2 and 6pm that same day. Otherwise you can expect it within 2-7 business days. Tracking information is provided via SMS for metro areas, and via email for everywhere else.
