Ecosa Mattress Review
The Ecosa is customisable and designed to fit many sleeping styles. Its three foam layers can be rearranged for a medium, medium-firm, or firm feel. Perfect for choosy sleepers, it offers the firm support of memory foam and the soft contour of a custom Eco-tex layer. The inner cover is made from tightly woven microfilaments, helping protect the mattress from accidental spills and dust mites. Every Ecosa mattress ships free across Australia, and some cities are eligible for same-day (4 hour) delivery. While priced slightly above average, our review of the Ecosa mattress found its unique features make a difference in durability, construction, and overall satisfaction.

How does the Ecosa mattress feel to sleep on?
Due to the Ecosa's innovative design, the feel depends on the mattress' arrangement. All the mattresses are shipped at a medium level of firmness. Yet it's easy to get a firmer feel by simply swapping two layers or flipping the mattress. This feature is great for people who want the contour of memory foam but have issues finding the perfect firmness.
Allowing sleepers to customise the feel makes the Ecosa work for a number of sizes and positions. Typically, back and side sleepers are most comfortable on a firmer mattress. The foam supports the natural curve of the spine and a comfort layer provides cushion for pressure points. This is likely why many customers say they wake up with less back pain and neck stiffness.
While the Ecosa is ideal for side and back sleepers, it may only work for certain stomach sleepers. This position usually prefers plush tops and a medium firmness. The Ecosa can be adjusted to a medium level, so average or large-size sleepers will likely be comfortable. Small stomach sleepers do enjoy the Ecosa, but every person has different preferences. No matter your ideal sleeping position, you can see if it works for you during the at-home trial period.
"Our mattress arrived quickly and we set it up easily. It was a strange sensation at first but I slept well the first night. Since then I'm getting used to the different foam feeling, but haven't had any back complaints - which is a problem for me, so I'm really pleased!" — Michelle L.
Sitting on the edge of an Ecosa mattress, you'll sink several centimetres. All foam compresses with weight, and the mattress does not have springs to rebound you. If you're upgrading from an all spring mattress, you may notice decreased edge support. However, the Exo-tex layer is naturally bouncy to help spring you up and out of bed.
The Ecosa may lack edge support but it's great at reducing motion transfer. Toss and turn during the night? Your partner won't feel a thing (unless you accidentally hit them). The foam layers absorb movement, pushing it down instead of across the surface. If you're a solo snoozer, this means you won't feel pets or kids jumping on the bed.
What is the Ecosa mattress made from?
Constructed from three foam layers, the Ecosa is not a revolutionary design. It is adjustable though, and this customisable feature sets it apart from the competition. We look at how this affects overall feel, weight, and thickness.
Similar to competing foam mattresses, the Ecosa is made of a custom Eco-tex foam, memory foam, and a high-density support foam. The first layer is their Eco-tex foam made open cell technology. It has a pin-hole design that helps airflow. Plus, it's hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites. Next up is the G-7 memory foam layer. This foam is designed by Ecosa and features gel particles. Since memory foam is notoriously hot, the gel helps regulate temperature and keep you cool during Australian summers. Rounding out the mattress is the high-density support layer. The top of this foam has thin channels that allows air to circulate.
What truly makes the Ecosa standout is the specialised cover materials. The inner cover is made of a German-engineered micro-filament fibre. Due to the tiny filaments, this fabric is 100% waterproof and protects the foam layers from 99% of dust mites. It's also incredibly breathable. Wrapping this layer is a removable double-knitted polyester cover. It uses high-quality fabric for breathability and flexibility. Plus, there is a fire-resistant woven silica sock between the outer and inner covers.
Ecosa weight and thickness
Moving the Ecosa mattress will likely require two people. When a Queen size is fully expanded, it weighs 35 kilograms. While this is light compared the hybrid designs, it's on par with other foam mattresses. Look to the chart below to see how it stacks up.
The Ecosa comes compressed in box, but it quickly expands to a thickness of 25.4 centimetres. This is an average thickness for all-foam designs and is enough for most sleepers. Before unpacking the Ecosa, position it on your bed frame, box spring, base, or the floor. Then, break the seal and watch it grow.
How much does the Ecosa mattress cost?
Relative to other mattresses we review, the Ecosa is priced above average. While still competitive, the higher cost is likely due to the quality materials. Ecosa sources their own raw materials—ensuring consistent quality and a responsible supply chain. You will be paying more for this mattress, but it also comes with an above-average warranty and thousands of five-star reviews.
The finer details
Overall, the Ecosa is a high-quality foam mattress that lets customers customise the firmness. All ship free across Australia. Same-day delivery is even available for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth. Remote areas receive the mattress within 1-7 days.
After getting the mattress, you have 100 days to see if it works for you. Ecosa fully refunds your purchase within this time period and donates any returns to a local charity. However, they ask you try the mattress for at least 14 days to let your body adjust. Sleep better than ever on your Ecosa? Keep it and rest soundly knowing every mattress comes with a 15-year warranty.
Who is the Ecosa mattress best for?
Not every mattress suits all sleepers. After looking through hundreds of customer reviews, we found who enjoyed the Ecosa most. (Keep in mind all reviews are subjective). For this mattress, we believe all size side and back sleepers will be comfortable. Heavier stomach sleepers may also get a great night's sleep. If you fit the above categories—and are searching for a quality mattress you can count on—the Ecosa is a great choice. Don't fit the above categories? Bring it home for 100 days and see if it works for you.
