How does the Lazybed (OneBed Essential) mattress feel to sleep on?
Like many all-foam designs, the Lazybed sinks and contours to your body as you lie down. Its combination of specialised Davina foam and high-density support foam give it a medium-firm feel that works for a majority of sleepers. On a standard firmness rating scale, the Lazybed falls at a 6.5 out of 10. While it’s not the firmest mattress on the market, it offers more support than designs with a cushioned top layer.
This firmness is typically ideal for back or side sleepers. Remember, no mattress is perfect for every person. Even in the Lazybed customer reviews, some said the mattress was too soft, while others said it was too firm. Yet, it was just right for many others. To help you decide if your sleeping preferences fit this design, we looked to back, side, and stomach sleepers that actually tried the mattress.
We found that side sleepers enjoy snoozing on the Lazybed more than back or side sleepers. The sinking Davina foam is ideal for relieving pressure on hips and shoulders that push into the mattress. Many people who found the most comfort were switching from traditional spring designs, so it took them a few days to get used to the foam feel. However, they were comfortable and without sore limbs after a short time.
While this firmness works for certain positions, it’s not the best for back sleepers or people with back issues. Several customers said the sinking feeling was not supportive enough for their backs, because the foam hugs the body instead of lifting it. If you have back issues because your mattress is too firm, the Lazybed could be a good in-between option. But if you require extra-firm support, you’ll likely find this mattress too soft.
What’s not right for some is perfect for others. Stomach sleepers were happy with the sinking, feeling of the Lazybed. Some lighter stomach sleepers said they added a topper for extra cushion, but average to heavy stomach sleepers enjoyed how the foam slowly sunk and supported all the right places.
“We’ve had it for 3 months so far and so far so good. I have been having back pain from sleeping on my old mattress (spring) and felt a big difference the first few nights after the switch. My back felt a lot better. I quite like the feel. It’s quite firm but doesn’t feel hard.” – Verified Buyer, Productreview.com
Since the Lazybed lacks spring support, the edges easily sink when you sit or stand on them. For people with back problems, this may cause an issue when getting in and out of bed. If you need support to help you stand up, you may want to look to a hybrid design or denser foam construction.
What the Lazybed lacks in edge support, it makes up for in motion transfer. The combination of foams prevents motion from moving from one end to the other. This means you won’t feel kids getting in and out of bed, your partner moving, or pets jumping off in the morning. If you’re upgrading from a traditional spring mattress, you’ll notice a major difference here. While it may take a few days to adjust, you’ll love how quiet and calm the mattress stays—no matter the movement.
