How does the Sleeping Duck mattress feel to sleep on?
Designed from a combination of foam and springs, the Sleeping Duck is made for sleepers who want the best of old and new. The updated spring technology is a throwback to traditional designs, but the modular foam layers keep it fresh. This innovation lets you choose an ideal firmness level. You start with a medium or a firm feel. Then, if you need to switch things up during the trial period, the Sleeping Duck team works with you. They’ll send a new layer that’s easy to swap out for a softer or firmer feel.
How firm is a sleeping duck mattress?
Since it’s easy to change the firmness level, a majority of sleepers find the Sleeping Duck comfortable. Although there are exceptions. The firm is often too hard for stomach sleepers since it puts more pressure on sensitive parts. The medium firmness suits average to large stomach sleepers but may be too firm for smaller sleepers. However, most side sleepers enjoy medium firmness because it hugs the body while supporting hips and shoulders. Heavier side sleepers can upgrade to the firm option if they sink too deep.
Back sleepers are most satisfied with the mattress because they usually need more support. The combination of Hyper-Adaptive™ foam, high-density foam, and base springs supports the lumbar and cradles the neck. It’s rare for back sleepers to enjoy a soft mattress because their hips sink and cause back pain. If you prefer this position, you can’t go wrong with the adjustable medium or firm option. Lucky duck.
The sleeping duck mattress is available in 2 firmness level:
- Medium – 5.5/10
- Firm – 8/10
During the trial, you can also get your mattress customized before using it at your home. It can be customized further to:
- Soft – 4/10
- Extra Firm – 9.5/10
How Is Motion Transfer With Sleeping Duck?
Motion transfer happens when your partner is in bed, rolls around, or gets in and out of the bed.
Rolling out of bed in the morning is easier on the Sleeping Duck. This is largely due to increased edge support and spring base, which has more bounce than foam. While you will sink into the top three foam layers when sitting on the edge, the spring base will kick in to prevent extreme sinkage. Plus, the layer of Hyper-Adaptive™ foam is naturally bouncy and will support your bum better than a full memory foam design. Overall, the mattress is designed to support two people up to 140 kilograms each.
Due to the bouncy foam and springs, there will be some motion transfer across the mattress. However, the top foam layers will significantly reduce movement. If you’re concerned about motion transfer, you can test it out during the trial period.
