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 bed 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.
