How does the Koala mattress feel to sleep on?
Snoozing on the Koala is a dream come true for most customers. To achieve a balanced feel, the company created two custom foams. The top comfort layer has a lush feel, while the bottom layer provides support. On the standard firmness rating scale of 1 to 10, the Koala sits slightly above a 6. This is a bit harder than the average sleeper’s ideal firmness. However, the company says some return the Koala because it’s too firm, others because it’s too soft.

Koala’s unique foam and firmness makes it a good pick for a variety of sleeping positions. The best way to find out if it’s right for you is to test it during the trial period. Many back sleepers say they wake up feeling refreshed and without pain. Even stomach sleepers enjoy the soft yet firm feel. We did find a few side sleepers who said the mattress was too firm. However, individual comfort level often depends on weight. Smaller side and stomach sleepers may find it too hard, especially if they’re used to a spring mattress. That being said, this mattress is loved by side, back, and stomach sleepers.
“The Koala mattress is different, so it may feel firm at first if you are used to a softer sleep, but it really is a fabulous mattress once you adjust. It only took us ….no time! Love it. Will buy another for our guest bed.”- Jillian E.
Sitting on the edge of the Koala bed, sleepers sink several centimeters. The layers easily compress under direct weight because there are no springs or hard memory foam. While you sink on the edge, don’t worry about sinking while you sleep. The mattress distributes weight evenly once you lay down.
Similar to other foam mattresses, the Koala has zero partner disturbance. Foam absorbs movement and does not allow partners to feel the other tossing and turning. Koala even passes the standard wine glass test (just be careful if you try it out on your own mattress).
