Dusk&Dawn Premiere Review
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress is a stand out in the online mattress market. It is Australian made and comes in a firm or medium option. It also has the advantage of a 100 day ‘comfort guarantee’.
Purchase and delivery
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress can be conveniently ordered online through the Dusk&Dawn website. Delivery is free (to metro areas) and Dusk&Dawn can deliver Australia wide. The mattress can even be delivered in 48 hours to some areas.
When you purchase your new Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress, you have the choice of either a medium version or a firm version. You can also order a plush version, but as this is a special, custom order, you will need to leave a note “plush version please” in the order comments at checkout.
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress arrived in pristine condition, thanks to two thick layers of plastic wrapping. Unlike most mattresses that can be purchased online, the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress doesn’t come compressed in a box, so you wont need to wait for it to decompress before sleeping on it.
You can see the full Dusk&Dawn range in ‘real life’ in our video review here:
Dusk&Dawn also offers an ‘old mattress removal’ service for a fee of $70. They will also happily remove your old bed base for an extra $35.
Aesthetically, the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress oozes plenty of style and class. It uses a black and white colour theme with a trendy pattern on its top surface. It also has a distinct brand label with shades of blue and green.
Comfort and support
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress has a top cover made of a ‘Comfort-Stretch Premium Fabric’. This feels soft and should allow plenty of ventilation.
This top cover sits over a rather sophisticated comfort layer of Australian Natura-Wool, an ‘Eco-Air’ comfort layer, a layer of Elasta-Gel, and premium comfort foams.
The comfort layers in the medium version offer lovely pressure relief and it is noticeably comfortable in all sleeping positions. To this point, it should suit all sleeping positions (side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers) well, but understandably its suitability will vary between individuals.
Our team rated the medium version of this mattress as a 6 / 10 on the firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest). Please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort. Furthermore, our firmness ratings are assigned based on Bedbuyer’s testing process and these may differ from firmness ratings given by individual companies.
The firm version is still comfortable, but as you would expect it feels firmer and more supportive. This version should suit all back sleepers, but it still may be suitable for side and stomach sleepers.
Our team rated the firm version of this mattress as a 7.5 / 10 on the firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest).
In terms of a support system, the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress uses an ‘ISO Coil’ 5 Zone Pocket Spring System. This feels strong, stable, and well balanced.
Furthermore, this spring system provides excellent spinal support (in all sleeping positions), and should accommodate people of all sizes. We didn’t detect any undesirable sagging or sinking. It also helps to isolate motion transfer, so partner disturbance is minimal.
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress responds nicely to normal sleep movements and we rated its level of responsiveness as ‘optimal’. In basic terms, this means that changing sleep positions (and intimate activities) shouldn’t be any trouble.
Please note that our responsiveness scales are just a guide and preferred responsiveness levels will vary between individuals. It’s worth noting also that innerspring mattresses are generally more responsive than foam mattresses.
The finer details
The overall build quality of the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress is superb. Its outer fabric shell feels durable and the ‘3D Mesh Breathable Gusset’ around the sides of the comfort layer (for extra ventilation) demonstrate Dusk&Dawn’s attention to detail.
Edge support is excellent thanks to its ‘Power Edge Support’ foam encasement. Considering the overall quality of this mattress, we were a little disappointed with the lack of side handles, but certainly not a deal breaker.
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress is Australian made, and comes with a handy 100 night ‘comfort guarantee’. This means that if you are not satisfied (within 100 nights of delivery), Dusk&Dawn will collect your mattress, adjust the firmness, and return it to you (free of charge).
If you are still not satisfied after your firmness adjustment (after 30 nights), you can claim a refund, minus the relevant shipping costs. You can see the full details in the ‘Trial Period’ section further down.
The overall build quality of the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress is superb.
In terms of health and hygiene, the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress stands tall. The mattress uses Virase®, a new technology that provides an antiviral effect. The comfort foams are also well-certified as non-toxic and eco-friendly by GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia).
What bed base should I use?
As with most mattresses, we recommend the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress to be used with a solid bed frame (such as the Dusk Base), or a solid ensemble base (with the slats no longer than 8 cm apart). Please note that the Dusk Base is not sold separately and must be purchased in combination with a Dawn&Dawn mattress.
A bed frame (with flexible slats) may still be adequate, but again, we strongly recommend that the distance between each slat is less than 8 cm. Use of an unsupportive mattress foundation will usually void the mattress warranty.
Furthermore, we do not recommend the Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress to be used with an adjustable (electric) bed base as this will also void the warranty. Here is our full list of mattresses that are compatible with an adjustable bed base.
It’s worth noting here that mattress firmness, performance, and durability will vary with different bed bases.
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress is available in 6 sizes (super king, king, queen, double, king single, and single) so it should suit most sleeping arrangements. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2021.
The Dusk&Dawn Premiere Mattress is a stand out in the online mattress market. It uses quality materials, and is beautifully balanced with comfort and support. It is also Australian made, and offers very good value.

100 night ‘comfort guarantee’
Dusk&Dawn want you to be completely satisfied with your new mattress. For this reason, all Dusk&Dawn mattresses come with a 100 night comfort guarantee. During this time you can test your new mattress out in the comfort of your own home. You must own the mattress for a minimum of 30 nights from the date received, this will give your body the adequate time to adjust. If between, night 31-100 you still are not satisfied with your sleep, then let us know and we will arrange to collect your mattress and adjust the firmness before returning it right back to you FREE of charge.
We change the firmness in the comfort layers to suit your specific sleep preferences, whether it is softer or firmer. And we don’t dispose of the mattress unnecessarily into the environment like other manufacturers may do. We simply swap out the comfort layers to suit.
We do recommend that you allow some time for your body to settle into your new mattress, this is another reason why we offer the 100 day trial.
If you are still not satisfied after the firmness adjustment, you can claim a refund on the condition that you have tried the new firmness for 30 nights. The refund will be minus any shipping costs.
