Despite similar claims, not all foam mattresses are equal. There are differences in foam and materials that affect durability, comfort, and support. To see how the Eva stacks up, look through the key categories below.
Made of springs and foam, the Eva is unlike any other foam mattress. It bridges the gap between traditional spring and modern foam designs for a hybrid feel. The first layer is a gel-infused memory foam that contours to the body. The gel helps keep you cool by distributing heat out and away from the foam. Next comes a latex layer designed with open-cells. This material is naturally anti-microbial and gives the mattress bounce. Underneath the latex is the layer of micro-springs. These mini coils are individually wrapped in fabric to reduce motion transfer. They react as separate units to relieve pressure and contour to the body’s movements.
Following the springs is a layer of high-density support foam. This is where the Eva’s main support lies. The dense foam is made to support the top layers, absorb extra weight, and redistribute pressure evenly. Finally, a layer of five zone pocket springs give support while minimising movement. These reduce vibrations from tossing and turning, so partners don’t wake each other up. Also surrounding the border are several large springs for increased edge support.
Protecting the foam and spring layers is a white and grey mattress cover. The top is a stretchy white fabric that allows air to flow between you and the layers. The side panels are made from a sturdier polyester blend to prevent tears when moving and rotating the mattress.
