How does the Sleepy Panda mattress feel to sleep on?
Constructed from foam layers and springs, the Sleepy Panda is a standard hybrid design. It aims to satisfy the average sleeper with a medium-firm feel. This firmness is ideal for people who have back issues, as the supportive surface prevents lower backs from sinking too deep. However, it may be too hard for smaller sleepers or certain sleeping positions. If you enjoy a cloud-like feeling or melting into the mattress, the Sleepy Panda is not for you. Stomach sleepers may find this mattress too firm. Although there is a comfort layer to provide cushion, the memory foam material doesn’t allow sensitive parts to sink. Heavier stomach sleepers are more likely to find Sleepy Panda comfortable. Average and small stomach sleepers should look for a medium firmness or an adjustable mattress.
While stomach sleepers usually prefer a cushioned top, side and back sleepers need a mix of support and comfort. Side sleepers put the most pressure on hips, shoulders, and torsos. This means they need a mattress that lets these parts sink while offering deep compression relief. Back sleepers also require comfortable support. However, an ideal mattress for this position keeps spines, hips, and neck aligned. This make the Sleepy Panda a good match for both side and back sleepers.
“I’ve had sleep issues my entire life. I was reluctant at first to buy a mattress from Facebook, however with the 100 night guarantee I thought I’d give it a go. I couldn’t believe how easy it was and how great the mattress was. Not only did I have the best night sleep but my back pain has gone.” — Nicholas
Getting in and out of the Sleepy Panda is easier than an all-foam mattress. Once foam compresses, it take time to expand. However, the Sleepy Panda’s spring base gives you more support and bounce. Plus, the springs around the mattress edge are thicker. This prevents you from rolling off the edge and also helps bounce you out of bed in the morning. While the springs add support, they also help reduce partner disturbance. Each spring is individually wrapped to prevent motion transfer and to help with air circulation. As you move, the springs react to your body without drastically affecting a partner. If you’re switching to the Sleepy Panda from a traditional spring design, you’ll notice much less motion transfer. On the other hand, you’ll feel more movement if you’re transitioning from an all-foam mattress.
“Purchased this mattress, slept on it for 2 weeks, found it extremely uncomfortable and rock hard. Phoned and emailed Sleepy Panda multiple times, to only discover that they don’t honor the ‘100 night risk free guarantee’. They avoid calls and emails to all measures. The mattress threading on the side was coming apart and the mattress was discoloured. We have had nothing but trouble dealing with Sleepy Panda and organising to have the mattress collected and our money refunded. Not happy at all!” — Elizabeth
