It’s official. The mattress in a box craze is taking Australia by storm. This market has exploded over the last 5 years with over 30 companies now operating in Australia. It seems affordability and convenience are the main reasons why so many Australians are now opting to buy a new mattress online. Many are under $1000 and are delivered to your door in a compact box, which removes the time consuming ‘store to store’ shopping and pushy salespeople. Our table below compares the current market in terms of price, trial period, and warranty periods:
Our expert review team has carried out assessments of most mattress in a box products, so here is our our Top 5 for 2018. Let’s get started!
The Naptime Mattress is outstanding value for money and is a very good mattress in a box product. The top memory foam layer is comfortable and supportive. It absorbs body weight very evenly and spinal support is maintained well in all sleeping positions. Partner disturbance seems minimal. The outer cover doesn’t seem as durable as some of the other mattress in a box products we have tested but for the price ($650 for a queen) this is one of the best value mattresses available in Australia.

The Sleep & Co Hybrid Mattress has a comfortable top layer which also supports the spine very nicely. Interestingly, the Sleep & Co Hybrid Mattress is only one of only a few mattress in a box products that contains an inner spring system. This spring system provides very good spinal support and partner disturbance is minimal. Based on the quality of the mattress, and its beautiful mix of comfort and support, it presents good value for money at $1099, which can be reduced by $200 with a Bedbuyer coupon code. Overall one of the best mattress in a box products currently on the market. Sleep & Co also make a firmer, memory foam mattress which is also a good one.

The Noa Mattress is a strong contender in the mattress in a box market. It has a firm and supportive feel to it, along with a nice, subtle amount of bounce on the top layer. The top cover is made of a high quality Tencel fabric which covers a layer of latex, memory foam, transition foam, and a robust pocket spring system. Build quality is very good and it was perhaps the easiest mattress in a box to remove from its packaging. If you are after a good value, supportive mattress, the Noa Mattress should definitely be on your list. And with Noa currently offering a $300 discount on all mattress sizes (bringing a queen size down to $799) this now makes the Noa Mattress exceptional value.

The 624 Mattress is one of the the best quality products in the mattress in a box market. The quality of the materials used and the versatility in offering different sleeping surfaces make it a serious contender as one of the best mattress in a box products available in Australia. You can adjust the firmness level by flipping the top foam layer over, from a ‘6’ firmness (the firmer version) or to a ‘4’ (the softer version). Spinal support is excellent, particularly in the 4 version, and although there is some partner disturbance, for $799, this is as good a value mattress in a box that you will find.

It gives us great pleasure to announce the winner of Australia’s ‘Best Mattress in Box’ for 2017-18, the Eva Mattress. In short, the Eva Mattress is a fantastic ‘all-rounder’ at an excellent price. It is comfortable, supportive, and build quality is outstanding for a mattress in a box. We were very comfortable awarding the Eva Mattress as the premier mattress in a box currently on the market.
Interestingly, the Eva Mattress is only one of several mattress in a box products (out of twenty-six) that contains a pocket spring system. On top of the 5 zone pocket springs sits a rather sophisticated comfort layer of Memory Foam, Latex, Micro Springs, and a High Density Foam. As we mentioned, this provides good spinal support, and also makes the Eva mattress very comfortable, with a spring-based feel similar to other more expensive mattresses.
The Eva Mattress stands up solidly in all five categories – comfort, spinal support, build quality, partner disturbance, and especially value for money. Its retail price listing is currently $850, and with a $100 coupon code, this comes down to $750 – which is well below the market average of $990. Not to mention its solid 120 night trial period and 12 year warranty. Congratulations to the Eva Mattress – a deserving winner in 2017-18!
