The Good
Customers made it clear—the best part of Hugo is the cushioned support. Many have tried a traditional memory foam design, but woke up with sore shoulders because it was too firm. That rarely happens with Hugo. Its comfort layer allows sleepers to sink slightly, while the underlying memory and base foam provides firm support.
Customisation is the key to Sleeping Duck's success. Customers can choose between two firmness levels, and then switch up layers if it's not suitable. It's easy to contact the customer service reps and ask for a firmer or softer layer. Plus, all their foam are Australian made and any foam layer or mattress you return is donated or recycled.
The Bad
Since Hugo is new to the market, there are not many customer reviews. This makes it difficult for sleepers to understand why customers love (or hate) Hugo. There are many five and four-star reviews, but that did not help us figure out Hugo's flaws. If we had to guess one issue, it would be that memory foam retains heat. So this mattress may be warmer if you're transitioning from a spring or hybrid design.
Easily, the weakness of this mattress is the price. Almost every size is several hundred dollars higher than the average foam design in our index. There are a few mattress with similar price tags, but this is one of the more expensive hybrid models. Below, we explain how the Sleeping Duck's construction and materials contribute to the cost.
