The Good
(Hugo Mattress)

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.

(Sleeping Duck Mattress)

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. All their foam are Australian made and any foam layer or mattress you return is donated or recycled. Plus, they were recently awarded the top rated mattress by independent tester CHOICE.

The Bad
(Hugo Mattress)

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.

(Sleeping Duck Mattress)

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.

Conclusion

Both mattresses have their advantages and disadvantages. As a client, it is ultimately up to you to make your final choice. Purchasing a mattress is an investment that will last a lifetime; thus, make an informed choice.

The Sleeping Duck mattress has a pleasant and refreshing sleep experience. The firmness of the mattress is perfect. The hardness and supportiveness of the mattress in proportion to the sleeper is an essential decision in relieving back pain. The Hugo mattress is best for sleepers preferring a medium bed. Hugo has a 4 layer foam system that reduces partner disturbance and adds extra comfort and pressure relief to the mattress.

Based on our research, we conclude that the Sleeping Duck mattress is worth buying.
