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 Onebed Original mattress is an all-foam mattress with 3 layers:
- A 4cm latex top layer for a cool, somewhat bouncy sleep.
- A 4cm memory foam layer for cushioning support that moulds to your body, plus pressure relief.
- A 17cm polyurethane foam layer for a stable, quality support base.
It’s also got a removable, washable polyester cover. All materials in the OneBed Original are certified free of harmful chemicals and other nasties by independent testing organisations.
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 Onebed Original comes with a 125-night trial. Onebed asks that you try it for at least 30 nights before returning it. If it’s not right for you, you can email them to arrange a free pick up. Once it’s been picked up, you’ll be fully refunded - within 30 days. Onebed also promises that it’ll be picked up within 30 days. So you could be looking at up to 60 days or around 2 months for your refund to be issued.
You have a 15-year warranty with a Onebed Original. This warranty covers any indentation that’s deeper than 2cm; a flaw that causes the foam or latex to split or crack; and failure of the mattress zipper or tearing of the outer cover. If the cover develops a fault, only the cover is repaired or replaced. The warranty is void if you don’t use a suitable bed base so don’t use the mattress on the floor.
No shipping information is provided beyond it being ‘fast and free’.
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.
