How does the Greywing mattress feel to sleep on?
The Greywing is constructed of three foam layers made for comfort, compression relief, and support. Built in Australia, it’s designed to adjust to the changing climate and contour to your shape. Its medium-firm feel is standard among memory foam mattresses. Yet its construction sets it apart from competitors.
Due to the Greywing’s firmness, it’s not the right choice for every sleeping position. Being comfortable on a mattress often depends on your sleeping position and your weight. We found side, back, and freestyle sleepers enjoyed the Greywing. However, side and freestyle sleepers gave it the best ratings. The comfort layer/memory foam combination is great at supporting side sleepers. And the memory foam shifts support as freestyle sleepers move throughout the night.
On the other hand, light stomach sleepers may not find Greywing comfortable. The firm support can make these sleepers feel like they’re floating on top instead of sinking in. If you’re a small stomach sleeper—and you prefer memory foam designs—the Greywing may work for you. You can always try it for 100 days without risk.
“I didn’t really know about foam mattresses, as I’ve been using a spring for years. Already I’ve had the best sleep I’ve had in a long time using my new Greywing. Combine the mattress with some memory foam pillows and you won’t regret it!” — Alex R.
While firm, the Greywing lacks edge support. This is common among memory foam mattresses, as there’s little bounce without springs. If you’re used to memory foam, this will not be an issue. However, you’ll notice less edge support if you’re transitioning from a spring or latex mattress. Remember, memory foam takes a few seconds to compress. If you’re not sleeping right on the edge, this lack of support won’t be an issue as you’re getting out of bed.
What the Greywing lacks in edge support, it makes up in motion transfer. Memory foam is fantastic at reducing partner disturbance, and the Greywing excels at absorbing movement. Many customers say they don’t wake their partners when getting out of bed. Even kids jumping on the bed will not be as noticeable.
